Joy Beth Smith and Paul Maxwell have started a podcast about male and female body image that is refreshingly candid. It feels like having coffee with two friends wherein you spend more time listening than talking.
And that's a really good thing for all of us: listening. Whether it be listening to someone who is from a different culture, is the opposite gender, someone who struggles in a different way than you, etc. listening to others is how we grow in empathy and learn how to better love our neighbors as ourselves--to love like the Church should love--to love like Christ loves.
Give it a listen.
I love getting to hear Paul and JB talk about their journeys and how we view our own bodies. It's refreshing to hear people talking about the image we perceive versus what other people see.
Honest & Helpful
Joy Beth and Paul are clearly committed to having vulnerable, straightforward conversation about a topic that's often avoided. I'm so thankful for their willingness to broach the topic and look forward to more episodes!
