Snippet from the Show
When both genders are working together, that is when we experience the fullness of humanity.


Our guest this week is author Lisa Cotter. She joins me to discuss topics in her new book, Reveal the Gift: Living the Feminine Genius. Lisa shares some of her experiences as a wife and mom and the ways in which our culture gets the idea of female empowerment all wrong. 

We discuss some of the challenges we face as women today including navigating social media and the temptation to compare ourselves with others. Lisa is a joyful voice of encouragement for women from all walks of life!
