Fighting Forward in Faith and Friendship with Hannah Brencher {Podcast #707}

Have you ever gone through a “friendship breakup”? Maybe you’re at a crossroads with a friend with no end in sight. Or maybe it is time to re-evaluate whether you are allowing safe people into your life. Whatever the situation may be, we all known that friendships can sometimes bring rocky territory and heartbreak.

On this episode of the More to Be Podcast, I had the chance to talk with Hannah Brencher, about the beauty from ashes that God can bring out of broken relationships. We talked about “fighting forward” for our friendships and making wise choices about who we allow into our inner circle. Yes, God will rebuild on the ruins and make a path in the wilderness.

If any of this resonates with you and you are in need of some encouragement as you navigate friendships, then this episode is for you.
