Episode 16: Today is the Day the Lord has Made with Jo Petersen

On this episode of the You Inspire Me Podcast, Hope had the amazing and fun chance to interview her mother-in-law, Jo Petersen. Jo is an amazing woman who shares about she finds joy in every day despite any challenges that get thrown her way. Not only is she an amazing woman, but she is also the wife to Steve and mother to Parker, Tucker, Skylar, and Turner! Jo defines inspiration as “anything that makes you want to change something about what you are doing or how you think about yourself and others.”
