Episode 100: Courage Work with Esther Emery

On the 100th (!) episode of the Mama Bear Dares Podcast, Tesi and Leslie talk to Esther Emery, author of the beautiful memoir What Falls From the Sky, about motherhood, womanhood, and engaging the Mama Bear in summoning the courage to do what is right for us as individuals. The women discuss what life is like without digital distraction, where personal validation comes from, and recognizing and overcoming the obstacles that keep us from being our very best selves. Leslie and Tesi adore the book and the conversation and think listeners will be fascinated by Esther's story and her wisdom. Listen in as the women unpack What Falls From the Sky and revel in a fantastic Episode 100!
