In this episode, host Bridget Richardson takes us through the ups and downs of being self-aware in our relationships. Catholic Speaker and Author Leah Darrow stops by to explain the nugget of wisdom about self-awareness that was given to her when she was single and dating. She explains how it has carried her through her life and how it calls us to mission in bringing forth the kingdom of God. We also hear from Larry Freeney with the Rejoice Counseling Apostolate who helps us understand why it's important to love who we are and what we have to offer others.
