Finding Freedom from Comparison with Richella Parham {Podcast #538}

Do you find yourself constantly comparing yourself to the people around you?

Are you always wishing to have a more put-together life, be more in shape, or friendlier like the women you see on your Facebook feed?

Does the comparison trap leave you feeling exhausted and self-loathing?

If your answer to any of these questions is yes, then listening to the latest More to Be Podcast is a must. Our guest, Richella Parham, removes the shame of comparison by exposing what causes it in the first place. With tenderness and truth, she shares her personal struggle with comparison and how she’s navigated out of the trap and into true joy. You’ll be inspired and equipped by her biblically-steeped insights and application steps.

We don’t want to admit our weaknesses, and yet, the very point of our weakness is where Christ shows himself so strong on our behalf. – Richella
