The Self-Destructive Lies We Tell Ourselves (And How To Overcome Them) with Julie Plagens | Episode 12

Any of these sound familiar?
I’m not good enough, she’s better than me, what I do doesn’t matter, I’m a failure…
A daughter of an associate pastor of two mega churches in Dallas, Julie Plagens of Mom Remade recounts her inner struggles with self-worth and value that started as a child and carried through into her marriage and motherhood. As she began to combat the self-destructive narratives swirling in her mind with Scripture, her view of a mean, uncaring God completely changed and she ultimately found a loving Father who revealed the truth of who she is.
If you’re battling inner lies about yourself and you’re constantly caught in comparison traps, this episode will give you very practical methods rooted in faith to overcome them.
