  • Incredible session – especially benefited from the insight regarding pride in my labor being difficult since my labor is “owned” by the company.
    Agree that home based learning and work may restore some family dynamic.
    Love the long view showing that what is considered normal is relatively new. One benefit of the lockdown is a re-evaluation of routines taken for granted.

    • Thanks, Mark. Yes, I agree. I do believe that was one of the blessings that actually came by way of the lockdown.

  • This was fantastic. You got to the heart of the issue with clarity. Glad to know there are other brothers out there seeing this. I believe the life of abundance Christ speaks of must apply to all areas of our journey here. May we grasp it in its
    Fullness.
