Girls are trained to say, ‘I wrote this, but it’s probably really stupid.’ Well, no, you wouldn’t write a novel if you thought it was really stupid. Men are much more comfortable going, ‘I wrote this book because I have a unique perspective that the world needs to hear.’ Girls are taught from the age of seven that if you get a compliment, you don’t go, ‘Thank you’, you go, ‘No, you’re insane.’

This broken world gives broken stories. Still, in the midst of it all, God is there, pointing us toward unbroken companionship. Unbroken companionship helps us hear His instruction so then we can see His direction. We must not seek direction before obeying His instruction.
