Episode 31- Dawn Mikkelsen and Forgiveness
3 days ago
We have another of Jay's All Stars on this week's episode--Dawn Mikkelson. Dawn is an amazing human being and I promise you are going to be incredibly inspired by her and her work. She is a documentary film maker and her most recent film, Risking Light, focuses on the topic of forgiveness. And not your ordinary, "you ate the last of the cheese" type of forgiveness. We are talking about, "you murdered my son," level forgiveness. During the podcast we talk about Dawn's journey through the film's production and working with Jay. We talk about forgiveness and the power it contains. There are so many great takeaways from this one!
