Welcome to Week 3! Together we’ve made it to the halfway point in our study and I’m so glad you’re still with us because we have amazing things ahead!
Speaking of amazing things, let’s join Melissa Taylor, Kendra Schwarz and Nicki Koziarz for a sneak peek of what we can expect this week as we dig into "Truth Three: You Don’t Always Have to Be Okay."

Anyone else find comfort hearing Melissa and Nicki share about when they were not okay?
Yes, sometimes, it’s okay to not be okay. What an overwhelming sense of peace this truth can bring.
I love what Nicki Koziarz shares with us this week in Chapter 5 of Why Her?,
“When life mistreats me and I’m not okay, I need to be more accepting rather than rejecting of these raw places. Because when I try to move on too quickly, the breakdown almost always comes.”
Hard times will happen. And we can get so wrapped up in trying to appear “strong and put together,” that we cover up the pain and hurt we’re experiencing. But instead, we can follow Nicki’s advice and acknowledge those raw places as we take time to get ourselves back to a place of being okay.
On that note, let’s get our week started! Below is our Week at a Glance, where you can click on Week 3 and get the breakdown of all we have going on, as well as another tip on how to stay on top of the study.

Reflect and Respond:
What’s the hardest part for you of admitting you’re not okay? For me, I hold it in because: 1. I don’t like falling apart and 2. I hate feeling like a burden to others.
