Great advice - thanks for sharing.
Christ has shown me great needs in my community, career, and family as well as my gifting, but that doesn't mean He wants me to be into everything. Tender hearted princess warriors can become overwhelmed by the needs in the world and discouraged when they can't make everything right all the time. So I think the question to ask the Lord is 'where should I serve?' Women who follow Christ should be asking the Lord for discernment on where He wants to maximize our talents, gifts, time, and financial resources so that the glory goes rightfully to Him!

What a great reminder! Each season of life brings different amounts of time and opportunity. When my children were preschoolers I volunteered as a Casa/Guardian ad Litem advocate. It was so fulfilling and manageable with the amount of time I had to give. I find myself in a new season today. I needed this reminder - Thanks Propel!
