Episode 158: Merica Stum



It’s time for my favorite episode of the year. Every year, my good friend Merica Stum joins me around the table. We take some time to look back at the previous year and look forward to the next one. We talk about changed for us this year, what we learned, books we read, good habits we started, what was hard, what made us laugh and what surprised us. And then we talked about what we hope to do and look forward to in 2019.
