Last night I attended this most beautiful event: a dinner on the front lawn of Cari Jenkins' home. Cari and I met through another guest on the podcast, Amy Pierson. Cari has a passion for and the gift of hospitality. She loves to bring people together for not just a meal but an experience in which they walk away knowing their value, worth and true identity.
Before attending the Denver Institute for Faith and Work event, Ambition: Living with Drive & Devotion, in March 2017, “ambition” was not a word I would have used to describe my dreams. It feels self-serving, prideful or arrogant, especially for a woman — well, especially for me. Because the hypocrisy is, I admire friends who have successful careers, who are using their gifts and living lives to the full. It’s okay for them, but not for me?
