You can now find me on Periscope @jessibridges. You can watch replays on periscope (if you can't watch live) for 24 hours. After that, you can always watch replays on YouTube.
Every Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 PST I'll be hosting the pregnant Christian momma chats.
Below are all the resources I mention in my chats and any scripture references I make. Thank you for joining us for these chats and helping to grow a community of women who are walking through the same season of life and are seeking support as we prepare our hearts and minds for childbirth, always looking to Jesus and His Word.
I'll also be adding some new scopes in the coming weeks so be sure to follow me so that you are alerted when I'm live. Thanks for tuning in and for your support.
