  1. Such a great conversation. So glad to hear John talk about fear. I have a fear of Heights. It’s crazy but it makes me want to jump instead of just being still. So he is right! I prepare myself ahead of time by trying to not put myself in that situation if possible. Thank you, so glad to see so much happening! Exciting

  2. “Fear gets its grip on a waiting person.” It cannot keep its grip on a walking person, thank God!
    Good conversation!
