As we begin our professional lives, begin a new career path, or begin an uncharted season of life, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and under supported. You may feel like you’re drowning in expectations and to-do lists. You may struggle with fear and anxiety or comparison and control. You may wonder how your faith really affects how you work.
I wonder these same things. Growing Up is not about having all the answers and it’s not about how to make it big time in your career. It’s about recognizing where you are and learning to face struggles and success with God on your side. The stories in this book are personal, real life struggles from a real life young professional. This is not a how-to book. This is a welcome-to book. Welcome to the beginner’s club, the space we meet and say “I struggle with this, too,” and we don’t stop there. We link arms and we step forward knowing that we are not alone in navigating the world of work and the Word of God. You are not alone. You are chosen. You are loved. You can do this.
