Taking Up Christ's Yoke

January 11, 2018

Hannah Anderson, author of "Humble Roots," and Barbara Rainey talk about the need for humility as they seek to live within the boundaries God has drawn for them. Anderson shares that, as we embrace the story God is writing in us, we are free to flourish. We don't obtain humility by looking inward, but by getting on our faces before God and seeking to live our lives in obedience to His will.
