Discernment and Decisions with Emily P. Freeman – Episode 869

You guys I am SO happy I get to talk to my longtime and one of my dearest friends, Emily P. Freeman. Her brand new book releases tomorrow! How to Walk into a Room: The Art of Knowing When to Stay and When to Walk Away. WOOF. This is such an important book and I think you’re going to love this conversation. We talk about the different types of endings, connecting with God in your own unique way, and we spent a lot of time processing with Emily our decision to end the Let’s Read the Gospels Podcast this year. Making hard decisions is never fun, but I’m so grateful to have a friend like Emily that can help guide us. She’s just so brilliant and I think the world of her.
