Episode 116 - Why the Fourth of July Might Feel Complicated & Why That's Okay...

Listen along to episode 116 HERE!


Roman candles, fireflies, and sweet tea… I LOVE the Fourth of July. I love this country and the ideas that it was founded on, and I love the opportunities it has given me and my family.

But just because I love America doesn’t mean that I have to accept its DYSFUNCTION.

It’s okay to be PROUD of your country and celebrate. And it’s okay to have a COMPLICATED relationship with this holiday.

This episodes gets into WHY the Fourth can feel complicated…

And why there is still HOPE for this country.

THANK YOU for leaning into these conversations with me and for sharing them. Our empathy will be the thing that leads us all toward freedom!
