For the Love of Conversations: Jen and Kelly on Friendship Through the Years

6/28/2022
Friendship is one of those gifts in life we can run to when it feels like the rest of the world just doesn’t get us. On a day when life hasn’t been cooperating exactly as you’d hoped, who hasn’t called that friend we can vent to, cry to, laugh with, and compare notes with? And the longer a friendship goes, the deeper the bond seems to be. But some of us are in spaces in our lives where we’ve had to follow another dream and leave the proximity of our friends. And the work of friendship takes...

These conversations with friends are life-giving. And with that in mind, we thought it might be fun to have a series of conversations here in our podcast community with...
