Elizabeth Oates

Apr 16, 2018Restory Show

Elizabeth Oates is pretty much my twin. She and I share similar stories, but what struck me most was how we both have learned to cope with dysfunctional families. We have both decided to WORK HARD AT ALL THE THINGS. This works for a while until burnout hits.

She talked about this book during the episode, Mending Broken Branches:

[Tweet “Hear @elizabethoates_ share her story of trying so hard to do all the things, then realizing Jesus simply loves her despite her performance. Relate much? Listen here.”]

As in all my episodes, I pray for you at the end. It’s my sincere hope that you’ll walk away from the Restory Show changed and challenged.
