Jo and Steph discuss the ‘Imposter syndrome’ today, the feeling that many people have, even high achievers, that they just got lucky and are not as able as it appears.  ‘Imposter syndrome’ is an internal insecurity and a fear that eventually they will be figured out and exposed for who they really are.  It can cause anxiety, depression and fear.


Listen in to hear Jo and Steph share their personal struggles with the imposter syndrome, and how important language is to help us own the callings God has given us.

Discussion questions:

1) Where have you felt the imposter syndrome present in your life?

2) Where have you held back in a meeting or pursing the vision God has given you because you don’t feel worthy yet?

3) Can you accept a compliment by saying ‘thank you’ rather than dismissing it?

4) What words are you afraid to use to apply to what God has called you to step into (I’m a pastor, leader, teacher, writer, mother,…)
