How do ministers handle huge events in their personal life and also still do ministry?  How do clergy work through their personal lives being on display yet still live into the calling that God has laid upon their heart?

I have the pleasure and honor of talking about these deeply personal questions and more with Robin Fitzgerald.  Robin went through a divorce a few years ago and was willing to walk through some of the lessons she has learned and how she lived through those times.  I truly hope you can hear the hope and grace that is offered in our conversation.

If you would like to share your thoughts or say thank you to Robin, you can find her on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

In two weeks I will present a new conversation with Charlie Baber, the author, and illustrator of “The Wesley Bros,” an online comic featuring the dynamic duo of Charles and John Wesley.
