PP 551: Choosing Joy with Laura Pedersen

“Along the way, there are silver linings, and if we are not still we don’t see them, just be still…those silver linings are what can bring you joy”

In this podcast, Kim will be talking to Laura Frankln Pederson, founder of Choose Joy foundation. Laura started the foundation at 2010 to honor the memory of her blogger sister Sara Frankln.

Listen as Laura chronicles her journey from the time when her “Gitzen girl” passed away, to her breast cancer struggle, to the time when it all dawned on her that joy is a choice. Laura will also be discussing with Kim about her ministry, about how changing your perspective can change your life, why you need to be still and why we need to trust God above all.
