We are more connected now than ever before, but most of us still struggle with feelings of loneliness and isolation.
I believe loneliness loses some of its power when we talk about it, so I write and talk about different angles of loneliness and help others consider their own loneliness. I explore how it intersects with faith and how we might hold on to hope when we feel isolated.
I’ve discovered the more curious I’ve become about my loneliness, the less severe it seems. So, I welcome you into a posture of curiosity as we explore different angles of loneliness. Read more about Hope for the Lonely here. Learn more about the Hope for the Lonely Podcast here.
