Fear of rejection can lead to surface level relationships, increased defensive behaviors and fear-based reactions, and loneliness and isolation. Many times, this fear stems from wounds we’ve experienced in our past and the inner lies formed during or directly following hurtful experiences or moments of rejection.

In this episode, Jodie Bailey shares a deep wound in her past and how it impacted her later relationships as she and Jennifer Slattery look at how God responded to a rejected woman in Genesis 29 and what we can learn from this.
