24: Why We Need Touch

Today Lore Ferguson Wilbert is here to re-educate us on platonic touch. Listen in to hear why hugs, back scratches, and welcome platonic touch are a necessary part of being human. 

Jess and Devi also get into how touch meant something to them both the good and the bad and what they’ve done in seasons of their lives when there weren’t people around to touch.

Lore Ferguson Wilbert is a writer, thinker, learner, and author of the book, Handle With Care. She writes for She Reads Truth, Christianity Today, Lifeway, and more, as well as her own site, Sayable. You can find her on Twitter and Instagram. She has a husband named Nate, a puppy named Harper Nelle, and too many books to read in one lifetime.
