#88: Trusting That My Story Is Good with Sallie Dean

Meet Sallie:

Sallie Dean is a wife, mom of twins, an artist and, most importantly, my friend.  ;) Sallie has a steadiness about her that I'm drawn to and I was eager to ask her how she walked (and is currently still walking through) a rough season.  The topic is infertility but what she has learned can be broadly applied to anything we are going through.  There were so many important truths shared.  You're going to want to have a pen and paper!

What we chat about:

  • Her process of letting God lead instead of chasing what she wanted.
  • Hanging onto the truth that SHE is not broken even though she is dealing with infertility
  • A marriage tool for decision-making that is pure gold
