Description

In this episode, Amy and Aprile talk about unrealistic expectations: why we have them, what they do to our joy, and how we can begin to overcome them. It has been said that the gap between our expectations and reality is our misery factor, and it's way too easy to get stuck there! Especially now as we're processing an unprecedented number of cancellations and disappointments thanks to COVID-19. Thankfully, God has graciously provided everything we need to re-calibrate our expectations and experience a life that is joy FULL no matter what the circumstance. 

Scriptures mentioned in this episode: Genesis 3; James 1:2-4; James 4:13-15; Romans 8:28
