In today’s podcast, we are talking with Paula Faris about how she left her 2 amazing dream jobs to be obedient to God.  She had to learn it’s ok to love what you do, but how to not let that define you. What we do shouldn’t define who we are. We are worth so much more than what we do, our value comes from more than our vocation. Paula is here to tell us all about finding our calling, how it gives us purpose, and separating that from our vocation.
