Jan Richardson: Stubborn Hope

What does it mean to be blessed? If you were to scroll through social media, you'd assume that "blessed" are the ones with gorgeous, matching families living in open style floor plans.

In this episode, Kate and Jan talk about the ways grief cracks us open and the ways blessing invites us to stubborn hope.
