In this episode, Pastor Jay Lee interviews special guest Val of @thewabisabimama to discuss the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi which means to find beauty in imperfection and how that has been a source of encouragement for Val journeying through a child with colic, post-partum depression, and PTSD. This interview will help you with some of the pressures we face as parents from social media and even, our Christian faith.

Guest bio:
