If you’re struggling with the “little pink book,” the gals recorded this episode for you. Also, we cover a peaceful March Madness tournament, the link between making a good confession and maintaining peace, how our expectations can often rob us of experiencing peace, and praying with the Litany of Humility.
We are reading and discussing chapters 11-15, pages 50-69 on this episode. And please note, even if you aren’t reading the book with us, please know there are plenty of nuggets that stand on their own and applicable to all. And if you are reading the book but doing so at a different pace, these Lenten episodes will not expire and will remain available on our podcast feed when you are ready to listen or re-listen.
Wherever you are in your journey, please come, join, and follow along.
