Be honest . . . Do you feel overwhelmed a lot of the time?
I had a good pray and a think before I titled this episode. I knew it would seem like I was making an assumption, and we all know what happens when we assume, right? 😉 But here’s something I know about the women I connect with and serve based on hundreds of conversations and message exchanges —
We’re all dealing with overwhelm. We just are. And the worst part is, we’re putting on a face and soldiering through it, day in and day out. We’re not admitting it, we’re not calling it out, and most of the time we feel powerless to make it go away.
I was done with letting the “elephant” continue to hold court in our virtual living room, so I recorded a podcast episode to call him right out. Want to take a listen? If so, I want you to grab your Bible, your journal and a pen, and . . . Let’s Go!
