Confessions of a Recovering Striver



Whit's Adventures and Blog


Welcome, friend! I'm Whitney Roehl (my inner circle calls me, "Whit") and I'm a recovering Striver. What is a striver?


For me, it was constantly aiming for perfection as a wife, mom, entrepreneur, church leader, and in self-growth. But nothing was ever "good enough"I constantly needed to do more, to have more, so I could feel deserving of love.


It was exhausting! Most of all it stole my joy and peace from all Gods blessings in my life. Until Jesus crashed in with His personable love. These are stories and lessons along the journey.

I have great news for you, friend.

 Jesus graciously met me in my fear-based, compulsive, self-dependent striving. He untangled me from the worldly-paradigm of "not enough's" to set me free. Each day, I'm reminding myself of that freedom. He can do the same for you.

I'm honored you've chosen to read my confessions. Enjoy and reach out if you feel inspired.

xoxo, Whit
