Below is an excerpt from one of the featured articles "Am I Enough" by Elizabeth Murphy:

When 27-year-old Ashley Thomas walks into a room, you can’t help but notice. Standing over six feet tall is certainly one reason, but not the only one. You can’t help but notice the spark in her beautiful brown eyes. They just immediately draw you in. She has a peaceful contentment about her life —all stemming from the deep realization that no matter what happens in her life God is enough. 

Growing up you rarely saw Ashley without a basketball in her hand. “I have pictures with basketballs in my crib,” Ashley fondly remembers. “So I think I was destined to play.” In fact, in kindergarten when asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, Ashley said, “A professional basketball player.” It was a dream that consumed most of her life. It defined her identity.

With her height and background—both her parents were college basketball players—it’s no surprise that she became a star on the basketball court as well. It was their family identity after all. From the time she was in fourth grade, people took notice of her abilities, which eventually led to becoming a top college basketball star...

But with all of her successes, she always struggled with being enough. Enough on the basketball court, enough in other people’s eyes, enough for her fears, and enough for God. 


Ultimately, we must care about the world because God cares about it. We don't want to miss the heart of God because we are too busy looking at ourselves. more


Even with all of her successes, Ashley Thomas always struggled with being enough. After years of wrestling with God, she finally came to the life-changing conclusion: God is enough! more
