Pride: Is It Sneaking Into Your Life?
Thursday, July 14, 2022 by Lyvita Brooks and Guest Kristi Gaultiere

Saints, this episode is either going to challenge you or make you mad. We are talking about p-r-i-d-e. Yep, the sin called pride. It has a way of sneaking up on you. And before you know it, BAM. It’s in full swing and sometimes you don’t even realize it. 



Please enjoy this podcast on your favorite podcast platform. Although efforts were made in editing, this transcript may include a few typos. It’s difficult to catch some minor errors. Enjoy! 




Welcome to Hanging Out With Jesus Podcast for believers who know what God’s called you to do but you need some help in getting it done or even started. With work, children, a spouse, pets, church duties, returning back to school, laundry, and of course cooking, how can you manage your time and spend time hanging out with Jesus. 

Saints, Breathe (breathe aloud) 

We have three ways to support you and you can receive this support in your email just by going to lyvitabrooks.com/subscribe.
