Join Melanie Springer Mock and Kathi Gatlin as we host a conversation through Melanie Mock’s book Worthy: Finding Yourself in a World Expecting Someone Else.
Who do you think you are? And is it enough? It’s not just the world of billboards, commercials, and social media that makes it difficult to figure out who God has created you to be. At times it’s Christian culture, with its clear-cut expectations about godly men and women and ideals of service and vocation. In Worthy, college professor Melanie Springer Mock sifts through the shape and weight of expectations that press Christians into cultural molds rather than God’s image. By plumbing Scripture and critiquing the $10 billion a year self-improvement industry, Mock offers life-giving reminders that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Set free from the anxiety to conform to others’ expectations, we are liberated to become who God has created us to be.
If you’re worn out from worrying that you’ve missed God’s One Big Calling, and if you’re tired of trying to fit yourself into some cookie-cutter Christian mold, step away from the expectations and toward God’s heart.
