Exiting Existing Negative Influences

Welcome to the rerouting harmful influences series on Legacy Living TODAY with Dawn Baggett, that’s me. 

In this episode our focus is identifying and exiting existing negative influences that may lead to temptations, to getting derailed from your path, and hindering your progress.  As mamas we’re careful to monitor the harmful influences that may impact our young children.  As they get older, it becomes harder to do.
