Rank #8: Season Finale! Lessify and Know When Enough is Enough!

Podcast cover
Read more

God calls us all to obedience. Donna tells us to ask ourselves 3 questions: 1. What am I being disobedient about? 2. How is my life complicated? 3. How much is enough? The most important thing we can do is make space in our day for time with God. Just sit in His presence as you may have once done with your spouse before you were married, or when you held your infant in your arms, bonding with each other by just being together. This is the last of Donna’s teachings until September. Have a blessed summer and explore our web site for free resources that are available to you and catch up on all of the free podcasts you may have missed.
