For many years I hid from my true self through my performance in ministry. I constructed an identity through sermons, books and storytelling. I rationalized that if the majority of Christians thought well of me, there was nothing wrong with me. The more I invested in ministerial success, the more real the impostor became.

This could be one used in the pose section either early on or much later in the details.

I heard a heart breaker this morning. Lily is a high school junior in a very stable and loving family. She is not completely adjusted to the high school culture and mentality. For that reason some of her friends refer to her at times as weird or awkward. She is a strong girl but her older sister is the Miss High School and has many other accomplishments.
Last night Lily had been out with friends. She came home in good spirits and joined the family sitting around the TV. She said to her brother that she was going to a friends house tomorrow. He said, “Good” and not in an offensive way. She exploded and it was nasty. Her father took her outside and she completely broke down sobbing and expressing that none of her friends like her. She truly believes she is weird or awkward and doesn’t know how to related to people.

Hers is such a perfect picture of the masks we all wear. Christa’s transparency allows her’s to be exposed. What about yours? What masks are you wearing?
CBN Write Up:
Christa has traveled the world with renowned artists such as The Jonas Brothers, Michael W. Smith and Israel Houghton and worked with performers such as American Idol’s Jordin Sparks. While Christa’s singing, songwriting and violin abilities have attracted critical acclaim, she started her songwriting career during one of the most difficult times in her life. When Christa admitted herself in a treatment facility for eating disorders for 40 days, she picked up an old guitar. She started writing songs that helped her cope with the pain of her addictions including God Loves Ugly andWas I the Only One recorded by Jordin Sparks.
