The title of this article sounds a bit like a Pinterest board; I must admit!  But the purpose of the title is quite the contrary.  In today’s media saturated world, laden with images of “perfection”, it is easy to for one to become downtrodden when comparing his or her reality with what is presented online.  Often times the picture perfect portrayals on blogs, websites, and social media discourage those trying to accomplish a particular goal or feat simply because what they produce never quite turns out as beautifully as what they saw online.  Unfortunately, even when it comes to faith-related topics, one can succumb to this perfection paralysis.
