Episode 136: How to Survive Your Winter Season

March 14, 2022

Learn how to survive your mental and emotional winter season. This episode features my sweet friend, Jodie Botma, who on the outside may look like she has a pretty darn good life! And she does! But she has also just come out of such a dark and hard season, and she shares with us how she survived the longest and darkest year of her life. And she has gone through many hard things in her life already, so that is actually saying a lot! Even though we may not have the tools to help you get out of your winter season, we believe this episode can help you through it!

2 Timothy 4:17: 

17 But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it. And I was delivered from the lion’s mouth.

Good Word of the Day:

Psalms 40:1-3

For the director of music. Of David. A psalm.

1 I waited patiently for the Lord;

he turned to me and heard my cry.

2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit,

out of the mud and mire;

he set my feet on a rock

and gave me a firm place to stand.

3 He put a new song in my mouth,

a hymn of praise to our God.

Many will see and fear the Lord

and put their trust in him.
