Women’s Hope kicks off a new season by interviewing the authors of “When Words Matter Most: Speaking Truth with Grace to Those You Love.” The authors of the forthcoming book, Cheryl Marshall and Caroline Newheiser, address how they’d counsel women who are fearful or who feel ill-equipped to speak truth into the lives of sisters in Christ who are struggling. They also address why it’s so important to foster hope in these conversations.
