Quotable quotes from Jen in this episode:
“We are prisoners of our own experiences.”
“I was hearing people open their Bibles and they were all saying different things.”
“Younger women are just done with superficial women’s ministry.”
“There are real and painful consequences to false teaching.”
“Sorority life was a bad trip for me!”
“I was the one who talked way too much in small group.”
