We are all leaders in some capacity, and we are all called to leave a positive impact on our world. This call takes courage as we fully step into our roles, even when we feel ill-equipped and unprepared, knowing not only will God use us to actively flood our spheres with light and life but to grow and transform us as well.

In this episode, Wholly Loved’s podcaster Tara Rye shares her insight and experience as former dean of women at Grace University, an executive coach with Cru, and founder of Cultivating Hearts Ministries.

8. How are you trusting God (rather than your efforts) with your call?
