The Giving Up Normal Podcast: Leading in the Era of COVID-19

Mar 19, 2020

The Giving Up Normal podcast has been around since March of 2019. In the past few months, changes were being made to bring you even more focused content as we deal with our overstuffed lives and undernourished souls.

Then enters COVID-19.

The conversation around healthy margin and boundaries and caring for your soul is as relevant as ever but the context of our world as changed. Therefore the plans for content and frequency of the podcast has changed for now as well.

As we deal this viral pandemic, mini-podcast episodes will be released every weekday...at least, that is the plan. This episode is an introduction to this new format and ends with a reading from Psalm 91.

Let us know how we can be praying for you. Thank you for all you are doing to share the gospel and build the Kingdom. Our world may have changed...but GOD never changes!

 

You can find all the previous episodes of the Giving Up Normal podcast on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Google Play, and at Jen's other website ...
