Jamie talks with Debbie about the value of mentors and the reality of the different seasons and stages of our lives.

How Debbie writes using the stream of thought method and the importance of observing the Sabbath and giving grace to ourselves.

They even talk about how important it is to laugh and why Youtube Tuesday should be a part of your schedule.
