Episode 45: Embracing Vulnerability with Jamie Ivey



When was the last time you and a friend had a conversation that got really vulnerable? Come to think of it, when was the last time you had a conversation with a friend about anything at all?! In today’s episode Indiana chats with Jamie Ivey about the necessity of friendship, the value of shedding shame and how to be a safe person for others. Tune in to hear what Indiana does to make Jamie (almost) cry and stick around for Jamie’s encouraging word for mothers of young children.
