S2E10: Thankful In All with guest Karen Gauvreau

 

Karen and I packed a lot into 20 minutes. Mainly, we spoke to having hearts of gratitude in all things, including the difficult things. While it's only October, Thanksgiving will be here before we know it. And fun fact: Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving in October, so I suppose this comes right on time for them.
