What Does Purpose Really Require?

Often, we see the glamorous side of someone executing their purpose. The work of purpose requires obedience though, and it can be hard.

I had an opportunity to have an intimate and transparent conversation about what living a life of purpose really requires of us.  I’m discussing this and more with this episode’s guest Mary.

Mary Lee Vance is on a mission to not only help women recognize the favor they carry, but also understand their value and purpose in the world.

She wrote the book, Fleshly Date or Godly Mate to help women realize the inactive power on the inside of them. She has spoken at numerous women’s conferences helping women discover what being more precious than rubies is all about!

Mary then became an advocate to help both men and women strive for God’s best on the Fastest-growing Faith-based podcast, Virtue With Vision, where she discusses relationships, goals, life, and a whole lot of Jesus!

Mary not only gives people hope, but provides her honest, open, and transparent walk with Christ in a simplistic yet biblical way to easily apply to your life. She currently serves as a podcast cultivator strategist where she helps solo podcasters create high-quality content.

Mary is no stranger to the tough moments that purpose requires.
