What Brave Means to Me: As a type A personality, planner and recovering perfectionist, brave to me means trusting with every piece of my soul that God’s plan is far better than my own. God continually challenges me to let go. More recently, He challenged me to give up control of my career and let Him carry me. This decision was unpopular with some of my peers and I gave up a solid career path for the great unknown. Was I brave or completely crazy? But, God has turned every step into something more beautiful than I could have ever planned on my own.
