Renew Your Spirit: 5 Ways I’m Finding Hope & Strength Right Now



I’m not even going to call our conversation today an episode because it is so much bigger.

I am here with a soul-stirring and inspiring message that’s coming from my heart to yours.

When the world feels dark, you and I need to bring the light.

I was moved to share a deeply personal message with you today about the power you hold to make a difference right now. I hope that when you hear my words, they will inspire you to find your strength and that they will renew your spirit.

And just know if you’re reading this, I’m sending you my love, and I hope you feel my light and the protection of my prayers.
