The deeper our roots, the easier it is to develop false identities. We’re mothers or teachers or perhaps Bible study leaders or community volunteers. We can easily lose sight of who we are. Moving can make us feel as if we’re losing ourselves. In this episode, Jennifer and Jodie discuss the major identity challenges Ruth faced, times when we might feel similarly, and how Jesus, our Kinsman Redeemer helps us discover who we truly are and who He’s molding us to be.
