What’s the Big Idea? - A Destination Imagination Podcast

Episode 2: Offering Up Grace with India Sylvester

July 29, 2021

“Realize that there’s no expectation that you must get it all right. That’s where that grace comes in. But really being genuine and recognizing that I don’t know everything, whomever’s having that conversation may not know everything, but they’re open and willing to learn...grace is huge. I cannot stress that enough.” - India Sylvester
