In Six Words: What's Receiving?


In Six Words: What's Receiving?

afterglow-3639_640Over the past few days, we've had great discussions about receiving.

Last Saturday, Cheryl had an ah-ha moment about asking for help (in essence, receiving help) during Table Talk (Give It Up and Start Living Life!!).
