Kathi invited her friend Joy Beth Smith, author of Party of One, a book just releasing today, to discuss finding freedom in whatever walk of life God has us in right now. Beth is single woman living her life for the Lord, and trying to help the world reframe the language around singleness in the church.

Kathi and Beth delve into topics of singleness, online dating, weight, personalities, and our own significance when the world tells us we have to earn our space in this world. They talk about how to support our single friends or family members as well as how our churches can include our singles into our language and culture. This is such an honest conversation between two women that want the best for one another and the people listening in. Don’t miss this great conversation!
