“If you are a Christian woman who loves the Lord, the gospel is important to you. It is easy to become discouraged, thinking that the work you are doing does not matter much. If you were really doing something for Christ you would be out there, somewhere else, doing it.

It is easy to confuse intrigue with value, and begin viewing yourself as the least valuable part of the Church.
