This month for our Totally Worth It series, we’re asking you to reflect. It’s easy to concentrate on what’s been hard in your life — to focus on everything that’s bad. Our hope is that this month’s news and stories will reflect God’s goodness and truth. And we hope you’ll be inspired to reflect on what’s good in your life, too … because you are totally worth it.
