This article is a tribute to our late senior editor David Powlison. “Growing in Weakness” is based on a self-counseling project Robinson prepared for one of Dr. Powlison’s classes. In it, she tells the story of how she came to recognize her powerful desires to appear strong, competent, and worthy of love, and how they controlled her life agenda. David had encouraged Carly to share this testimony with others, and we are pleased to offer it here to our readers.
