Episode 431: Toni Collier on Brokenness, Hope, and Redemption

I am honored to have my friend, Toni Collier, join us for a conversation about pressing into healing. Toni and I always have such a fun (and loud) time together and this conversation is no different! We chat about the balance between our writing process and healing, divorce, counseling, and the importance of having a diverse community of friendship that surrounds you. Toni’s organization, Broken Crayons Still Color is doing some important work and I know you’re going to love her new book, Brave Enough to Be Broken.
And just a note that this would be a good one to listen through before any miniBFFs are within earshot.
