Show Notes

In this episode, Jewel Burton joins the podcast to discuss the sweetness of  friendships and the beautiful truth that God wires us for meaningful community. Sisterhood is such a gift, and at the end of the day, we need each other. What growth and abundance may await if you open yourself up to new, or renewed, friendships?

About the Speaker:
Jewel Burton is passionate about God and His word, but also the beauty that God gives us in relationships with other women. She has the privilege to serve as Women’s Ministry Leader, alongside her husband, in the Turning Point Church. She is not only a follower of Jesus but a mother, sister and friend.
