42. Finding Joy When You Aren't Feeling It (part 1), with Jaime Mitchell

This week we are talking about finding joy in the messy. Sometimes we are overwhelmed and don't know how there could be any joy anywhere. Jaime Mitchell, a wife, mother, and therapist, is with us to help us learn how to manage some of the burdens that we carry. So many of our burdens we put onto ourselves and God never intended us to carry them. This is the first of 3 in the series.
