Influence This: Being True To Yourself
Everyone’s journey is different, but Parable’s vision for women is that we would connect our stories through the emotion behind the journey. Emotion is where we begin to find parallels in ours and the lives of our community. But how do we get there? How do we begin to understand who we are, so that we can make those connections? I wish I could say “That’s easy! Do 1, 2, 3, and A, B, C, and you’re there!” But the truth is, there’s no perfect formula and there’s often decades of discovery before we feel like we’ve arrived at our truest self.
But the good news is, those moments and seasons of discovery breathe new life into our ultimate purpose. So even if there’s more to discover, we can feel good about who we are today. It always amazes me when I meet a young woman who fully understands that idea because it took me years to be able to pump my fist in the air with righteous indignation about who I am. That kind of woman has the passion and the humility and the guts to be exactly who she wants to be and apologizes to no one. That’s Grace Prachthauser. From a very young age, she had a passion for photography. Thanks to her family, she was able to chase that passion and turn it into a scalable business. That’s not an easy feat. Especially when you’re a minor. This woman deserves all the “oohs” and “ahhs” you can muster as you listen to and read her story.
