Episode 40 • Identity Over Insecurity

9/6/2018
More
It's something every musician deals with. As creatives, our art is an expression of what's on the inside. And whether good or bad, joyful or sad, that expression is sometimes the only way to communicate our truest of emotions. With that, sharing our art or creative expression can be done with a couple different approaches. One of insecurity. Or one of confidence. Being confident in who you are comes from a secure place of knowing who you are on the inside. Identity is something we talk a...

There are probably many different explanations of these scriptures, but we wanted to take a look at it from a different perspective being a worship leader...
