Five time Grammy-nominated artist, Matthew West, is talking with Lindsey Maestas today about how listening well has changed the way he does music and the impact that powerful stories have had on his own life.

Matthew gets honest and discusses his own personal struggles with insecurity and empty striving in spite of his platform and success. They also talk about the important differentiation between seeking God’s will and seeking God’s stamp of approval on our will.
