Speaker: Alan Newbold is a man who appreciates and seeks out what is genuine - especially when it comes to the question of "Who am I and who am I becoming?" Having spent a lot of his life focusing on who he thought he needed to be so that others would approve, he now seeks to become more and more fully his truest and most whole self - and in doing so he finds himself coming to actually love and trust God in ways he never thought possible. Alan's journey out of performance and into truly being at home in himself and relating to God from there is a work still in progress...but there is progress, and he's happy to share what that's looking like for him. Alan joins us from Bozeman, Montana.
