I’ve Decided to Stop Being a “Good Girl”

Is this your story? Or the story of someone in your life? I want to hear about it!

For so long, I thought being “good” was the goal. But sitting in a counselor’s office I realized that, for me, being good was a way I tried to feel SAFE and worthy of love. Surely if I did everything right then nothing could go wrong.

Do you have a version of the same? If I’m “good” then I won’t…

Be rejected


Get hurt

Disappoint people

Make God upset

But I’m discovering that we are not created to be good; we are created to be LOVED. We are not called to be safe; we’re invited to be partners in a wild work of grace that’s been unfolding since the beginning of time. We are so much more than “good girls.” We are unstoppable forces for good.

Then one day she decided to stop being a “good girl” and became an unstoppable woman who’s a force for good.

You are a force for good in your relationships.

You are a force for good in your work.

You are a force for good in your family.

You are a force for good in ways beyond what you can see.

You are a force for good wherever you are as you read these words today.
