When we have the courage to be emotionally honest and evaluate our reactions from a sense of curiosity rather than shame, we’re better able to process everything from a position of love and grace. We all have “the thing” beneath the “thing,” but we also have a gentle loving Savior who invites us to uncover those hurts and false narratives that hold us back and to steadily advance toward greater freedom.

Steve Carter is a pastor, speaker, author, podcast host, and the former lead teaching pastor of Willow Creek Community Church in Chicago. He hosts the Craft & Character podcast where he helps people get better at the art of communication while ensuring their character always leads the way. He also cohosts, with NFL players Sam Acho and Trey Burton, the popular Home Team Podcast. His desire is to bring Jesus into every conversation and space he occupies.
