  1. Thank you for this lovely podcast reminding us to keep focus on Jesus. No need for comparison. I am thankful to God for the gift of sisters across the globe through Mom’s in Prayer. What a wonderful gift of reminding ourselves that we are not the struggles alone. But with a constant reminder that with Jesus we have it all. Thank you Shannon

    1. Amarachi, what a joy to connect with you. Absolutely, sharing our burdens in vulnerability draws us together, where comparing up or down drives us apart. I’m grateful we are sisters in Christ!
