Are you in between seasons?
You may be struggling with your love life, career, motherhood, clothing size, friendships and/or unanswered prayers, feeling an angst like I am. This is common, even normal, for women as they navigate life. In this episode I share how I’m feeling (and handling those feelings) in all of these areas of my life, offering a word of encouragement and hope for women in the same shifting season (although your circumstances are likely different).
I mentioned a couple former episodes:
How To Improve Your Body Image With Becky Patterson – 016
What if Smaller Isn’t Better? With Sam Gwaz – 022
I also recommended Jess Connolly’s new book Breaking Free from Body Shame: Dare to Reclaim What God Has Named Good.
I also suggested you read Proverbs 27 in The Passion Translation. Find it here!
