Journeywomen


Nov 5, 2018

On today’s episode of the Journeywomen podcast, I’m chatting with Catherine Parks about authentic friendships. We talked about everything from the role of confession, repentance, and prayer in our friendships to how the gospel actually restores our relationships with one another when we’ve wronged or been wrong.

 

Since my conversation with Catherine, I’ve found myself encouraged to walk in authenticity in my own relationships for the building up of the church and ultimately, for the glory of God. I hope you’re encouraged to that end as you listen as well!

 

So you’ll know our guest a little better, Catherine Parks is a writer and Bible teacher who loves to help women build friendships around Scripture and prayer.

 

Be sure to complete the short survey before midnight on November 19 for a chance to win an ESV single column journaling Bible by Crossway. This is the Bible of my personal dreams! Thanks for helping us get a better idea as to who is listening to the podcast so that we can know and love you better.
