I ran across a really neat video yesterday created by our friends at Hallowed Ground Outdoors titled “Identity:Grant Woods” that gave me pause. And after giving it a watch, I knew I had to share it with the Wired To Hunt Nation. Dr. Grant Woods should be no stranger to Wired To Hunt readers, but if you’re not familiar, he is an acclaimed wildlife biologist and consultant and the host of Growing Deer TV. I’ve come to greatly respect him as a hunter, conservationist and and most importantly as a person. In this short video, Grant discusses how he is not ultimately defined as a person by his career, passion for hunting or anything else. Rather his identity is in his faith.
It’s a message I need to be frequently reminded of and maybe it will resonate with you as well.
“Identity. It’s what defines us. It’s the essence of who we are. It’s our identity that makes up who we are and sets us on a trajectory to where we will ultimately go. These are the stories of people who have found their identity in something greater than themselves.”
