Within the final episode, Jesse and I shared our ideas concerning the docu-series Shiny Completely satisfied Individuals: Duggar Household Secrets and techniques, and a number of you reached out to me to say that you’ve struggled to know easy methods to really feel about church due to tough experiences you could have had. Natalie is right here to debate what to do and easy methods to course of by way of church harm and disappointment, one thing she has skilled deeply herself.

On this podcast, she shares her story of how she was harm by the church when she was youthful and the way she processed by way of that harm and disappointment and ended up saying sure to one thing she by no means anticipated she would: be concerned in church ministry!
This episode is filled with knowledge and encouragement (Jesse listened to it and mentioned it’s one it’s essential to hearken to greater than as soon as!). Whether or not you could have skilled church harm and are nonetheless strolling by way of it and processing it, whether or not you’ve been disillusioned by church and are avoiding it altogether, or whether or not you’re simply interested by Natalie’s story, I consider you’ll be very blessed by listening.
