In this episode of the Unseen Leadership podcast, Chandler Vannoy and Mike Kelsey are joined by Jamie Ivey who is the host of the Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey podcast. She is also the author of several books, including her most recent children’s book God Made You to Be You.
During their conversation, they discuss using our gifts for other people to see His works and give glory to God for them, being comfortable in who God made you to be, and how to learn more about what you are gifted for.
QUOTES FROM EPISODE 74:

“God is bringing you up as a leader and He has prepared things for you to do.”
“I am not trying to put on a show, I am just trying to be myself and I think God has used that in a lot of people’s lives.”
“I had to go through a lot of laying stuff down with God – insecurities and feeling not enough.”
“He has equipped those who He has called and I am going to keep walking forward.”
“You do bring something to the table, not because you are awesome, but because God has gifted you.”
“Practically, one of the best things for me has been to step in and serve. Sign up to teach a class and see what happens.”
“Sometimes we get in the wrong mindset of thinking that what someone else is doing equals success.”
“Success is individualized and so many times is a moving target.”
“I want to look at people I can learn from, but I don’t want to chase their successes. I want to chase faithfulness and what God has called me to do.”
