The Gift of Social Anxiety: Finding Rest in God's Grace

I've written a whole book about the things I'm not good at... eye contact, small talk, receiving judgment, and always coming up short of perfection.

It has taken me many years to learn the rules of social interaction, and yet it has always been impossible to get it right. As it turned out, that weakness has become my greatest asset.

My failure to be at ease with other people drove me relentlessly to find love and acceptance outside of my performance. Rest. Not personal growth, change, or more work.

Rest. In Grace. Through Jesus.
