57: Back to the Basics: Loving God & Loving Others
Our newest Sparkle Board Member, Carla Chennault, joins us to discuss her faith. Carla is a former school Principal, and a current Education Director. She is a speaker, mother, educator, and writer, who specializes in "optimizing others".
In this episode we discuss the division our country is facing, as well as topics such as race and the LGBTQ community. Carla shares how God has been putting it on her soul to talk about getting back to the basics: loving God and loving others. We discuss the topic of how exactly DO we love our neighbor? Especially if that neighbor holds different values or beliefs?
Valuable quotes from this episode:
- "Hurt people hurt people, whole people help people."
- "Loving means repsecting everyone with dignity."
- "Intention is important, but words and actions hold impact."
