Welcome to part four of our four-part series, “Advice from a Woman.” In this episode, Heather sits down with Rachel Marie Kang and talks about the seemingly invisible matter of little losses. Life is full of love, but it is also full of loss. Like paper cuts to the heart, every big and seemingly insignificant loss—the loss of friendships, faith, dreams, health, community, and everything in between—grieves us more than we think it will, and often more than we let on. Rachel Marie Kang invites you to see and be seen in the midst of your sorrow, your suffering—your story.

Heather also sits down with our social media expert, Brady Shearer, to talk through what tips and best practices he would recommend before someone starts a YouTube channel. Brady Shearer is the director of Pro Church Tools, a company that trains churches and leaders on how to navigate the biggest communication shift in 500 years.
