Give Yourself Grace


Episode #24: Give Yourself Grace

How are things going for you? Have you felt overwhelmed recently or in the past? The Johns talk about paying attention to signs that tell you that you or those around you are pushing too hard. We have to take care of ourselves and others, and give grace rather than beating ourselves up.
