Sept. 7th Jerry Wennstrom The Inspired Heart

Joan's guest is Jerry Wennstrom, artist and author of The Inspired Heart: An Artist’s Journey of Transformation. At a time when many people are experiencing the loss of everything they most identify with, Jerry's experience living creatively in "the void" offers inspiration, hope and new possibility.
