Show Notes-

We have something a little different for you on Cultivating the Lovely the Podcast this week. Today MacKenzie is doing a solo show and sharing with us how she is handling the hard things in life right now. She also wants to personally invite you to join in with “Take Back Your Life July” and the accountability groups coming up in Patreon next month.

  • Why MacKenzie decided to do this particular episode at this time
  • What working through the attributes of God in Sara Hagerty’s Adore study has done in MacKenzie’s heart
  • If you haven’t listened to it yet, you can go back and listen to Sara’s interview on CTL Episode 160

When we can allow our doubts and fears to be exposed to Him, God is gentle with us.
