    Episode 056 Finding Friends & When Friendships Fizzle

    When Friendships Fizzle & Finding Friends  {EPISODE 56}
    It's been on my heart for a while to speak about making friends as an adult. That ish is HARD. What happens when those friends we thought were going to be BFFLs fizzle out and you're no longer talking? It's heartbreaking and we can feel like "what's the point in all of that time on that friendship?" The root of it all is the trust that God is either using them or us or both to lead us to sainthood whether or not the friendship lasts 2 days or a lifetime.
