#106 Overshare via prayer request

posted by Stephanie Drury

Overshare via prayer request is the nauseating cousin of gossip via prayer request. Some people do not hold back. Since they’re in their community of brethren they feel free to get detailed. “Shannon couldn’t make it to small group tonight, […]

#104 Saying “just” a lot while praying out loud

posted by Stephanie Drury
