Well Shari is one of the lead main roles of this movie and I can tell you personally from a private viewing I had of this movie it is worth attending to see!

We dig into the topic of identity in this episode, especially when it comes to marriage and being a strong woman with passionate desires and dreams. We talk about the balancing act of supporting your husband through trials and not being afraid to demonstrate grace and forgiveness between husband and spouse in front of your kids, plus so much more.
