How to Maintain a Soft Heart in a Hard-edged Society


There are many reasons for and ways of becoming hard in our cruel world. You may think a hard heart is a good and protective thing. When harm or disappointment comes, a natural human response is to develop a tough and closed heart. But that also closes you off to the good things God intends for you and wants to work in you. Is there a way to cherish a soft heart in a tough world?

Mother, writer, and teacher Charaia Rush is Dr. Carol’s guest on this encouraging episode. They talk about how shame and pain can harden our heart, what a hard heart is and isn’t, and God’s process for softening our heart which opens us up to all His good things.
