This girl can PREACH! I loved this conversation so much – it filled my heart completely!

Alisha Illian and I are talking about chasing perfectionism – and that doesn’t also refer to how you look or how your home looks – it’s also a constant desire to be great, do well and prove ourselves. 

Alisha is the author of a very popular quote that went viral which I can almost guarantee that you’ve seen all over social media. It resonated with women because it was a reminder that we won’t ever find the satisfaction we’re searching for in this world. 

She shares about the temptation to chase temporary pleasures in this world in order to fill the void and why it only leaves us feeling more empty. She shares wisdom and encouragement to stop striving to ‘be perfect’ and instead, look at the perfect One.
