These short podcasts are my favorite way to start a Tuesday. Emily challenges me to slow down. in a world that seems to speed up every year this space is a breath of fresh air and encouragement to pursue God and implement self-care.

Description

For the second-guessers, the chronically hesitant, or anyone who suffers from decision fatigue, best-selling author and host Emily P. Freeman helps create a little space for your soul to breathe so you can discern your next right thing in love. Because out of the thousands of decisions you make everyday, chances are a few of them threaten to keep you up at night. If you're in a season of transition, waiting, general fogginess or if you've ever searched "how to make a decision" on the internet, listen in.
