Yvette Hampton talks with Heather Creekmore, Christian homeschool mom of 4, blogger, speaker, and author of the new book The Burden of Better: How a Comparison-Free Life Leads to Joy, Peace, & Rest. You are sure to be encouraged!

The Burden of Better: How a Comparison-Free Life Leads to Joy, Peace, and Rest
By Heather Creekmore / Leafwood Publishing

“For you formed my inward parts;
    you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.[a]
Wonderful are your works;
    my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
    intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
    the days that were formed for me,
    when as yet there was none of them.”

Psalm 139:13-16
