The first attempt at this podcast with my dear friend Joan Stuehm somehow got partially deleted. So, she graciously let me come over one night to re-record it. When I went to go edit it together with the original, something else got deleted! It's taken me a couple of months to get back on the horse and try it a third time. Another portion had "disappeared" but after digging through my files, I was able to relocate it and splice it all together!! For some reason, this message is clearly a threat!! It's been a great opportunity for me to press on even when things are not perfect or easy. But, the work that Joan and her friends are doing is important Kingdom work, so I knew I had to make it work.
Joan faced a new chapter in her life when she was facing being an empty-nester. A dedicated and involved mom in each of her three daughters' lives, she started to lose her way a bit as she struggled to find purpose. In her routine of getting her nails done, the LORD whispered something in heart about loving others and the LAVISH movement was born. In this episode, Joan shares how it all began, and a few of her collaborators join us in the second half. I know you'll be inspired when you hear the love and joy that these women receive from giving to others in a crazy, generous way.
