I will be speaking on:
Self-Care and Resilience for Church Leaders
Insecurity plagues many of us, and Nona Jones believes that comparison is a big part of the problem. In her session, she tackles this subject head-on and offers a path to healing. Drawing from the story of King Saul and David in 2 Samuel 24, Jones examines the destructive nature of insecurity, which stems from a crisis of identity rather than just low self-esteem. When we tie our sense of security to subjective things like our job, appearance, or relationship status, we set ourselves up for a life of insecurity. Get practical, down-to-earth advice that will help you pursue a life of joy and freedom.
