Goals and Grace w/Emily Thomas | Ep. 215

Goals and Grace w/Emily Thomas | Ep. 215

It’s that time of year where we are all thinking about goals, but what does Scripture say about goals? Should Christians set them? If so, are there biblical principles we should consider as we set our goals? And how should we respond if we’re unable to keep our goals perfectly? Today, we chat with Emily Thomas about all things goals and grace. Emily has been guiding others towards their goals for over a decade as a team member at our sister company, Cultivate What Matters. She shares tons of encouragement and practical tips in this quick episode that will help you get your new year started right!
