Women have accomplished some pretty incredible things throughout history. It was women that patented windshield wipers, disposable diapers, non-reflective glass and a host of other products that benefit us to this day. And that’s just a glimpse into the life changing achievements we’ve made.
Yet, it’s not uncommon for us to feel as though we’re not enough. We question our value when we see other women who are prettier, doing it better, or seem to be winning at life.
Grit and Grace Life writer Jodi Shultz joins Darlene Brock and Julie Bender to discuss this epidemic. Jodi recalls a time in her life when she felt like she didn’t measure up. Despite her efforts to hustle and rise to a prestigious position at work, those feelings never left, and she realized that our self-worth is about more than what we’re doing—it’s about our inherent value as determined by God. In this episode, Jodi, Darlene and Julie chat about why women feel like this, and practical ways we can settle the question of our worth once and for all.
