    Moving on from Mistakes: Gain Confidence to Make the Big Decisions & Live Your Life with PeggySue Wells

    The trauma of divorce or a significant breakup can amplify problems with decision making, causing us to become stuck and unsure of how to move forward. PeggySue Wells discusses how the fear of repeating the past prevents us from making wise decisions, and how to gauge our emotional well-being to assess needs and opportunities. She also mentions how the lies we believe about God keep us from accessing the grace to learn from our mistakes and make better choices, and how correcting our view of God improves our ability to walk in faith and demonstrate it for our kids.

When I needed to hear it

I have been struggling as a new single mom. My husband left when I didn’t expect it. I have been praying, reading devotional, and searching for a podcast that could help me heal. THIS is what I needed to hear. So much that made me feel validated.
