This week you'll hear the 2nd half of our conversation. We cover a lot of different topics from friendships to worry to assurance of salvation.

One of my favorite parts of this episode is a popular quote from Vickie:

Wowzers. Yes!

I'll tell you again. . .it was such an honor to be able to sit and record timeless truth from Vickie. God is so good to lead me into this ministry of podcasting. He is gracious to allow me that holy hour with a cherished woman of faith. If the only reason I ever podcasted was to be able to chat with her, it was all worth it. Thank you for sharing in the experience with me.

What we chat about:

  • How friends are one of God's greatest blessings.
  • Vickie's tips for developing friendships & what life was like when she was a mom.
  • The importance of having an active sense of humor.
  • How God sees the desires in your heart.
  • Trusting your children to God, who loves them more than you do.
  • Believing God can bring our children back when they stray.
  • Truth to fight our propensity to worry.
  • Vickie's belief that youth is highly overrated.
  • How to ask a woman to mentor you (and maybe not use the 'm' word).
  • One thing you never stop doing as you age.
  • The only life worth living
  • Vickie's absolute assurance of salvation
