And then head over here to listen to my first ever Podcast!
My friend Jacque Watkins has a beautiful new podcast that I adore! All of her podcasts focus on how God meets us in our suffering, how His grace sees us through our difficulty, and how His mercy finds us in our failure. I listen to it weekly and she’s had some amazing guests share about issues like loss and grief, anorexia, sexual intimacy, and infertility.
I’m honored to join Jacque on her Mud Stories Podcast where we talk about depression.
