Ruth is launching her latest book, Socially Awkward, Pressing Through Discomfort to Engage Tough Topics (which you can pre-order now) and it goes on sale October 8!
This is right up our alley. Moxie exists to create conversations that matter and Ruth hits them head on.
You know, all those awkward situations we find ourselves when faced with someone in a public setting. What do we say? How do we prevent putting our foot in our mouth or even backtracking gracefully?
Ruth has answers!
We get a glimpse with the following topics:
Singleness meets Married and visa versa. Have you ever said. "How are you STILL single?" Yeah - don't do that anymore.
Bottom line, when we can lean in to really see another person not as competition or the "enemy", we can learn so much! Hearing and understanding each other's perspective is the path toward grace.
And grace opens the door for the conversations that we must be willing to have.
To see and be seen.
