What is vision, how do we get it and how do we know if it is any good? Do you have vision for your life?


After Steph shares some great, although unsolicited, dating advice, Jo and Steph share how vision is ‘a picture of what could be’ and how we embrace that in our lives. They share why vision is so important and what happens when vision isn’t present.
