In this edition of the Ericaism, Erica Campbell talks about the wisdom she heard from the elders in her church growing up, and later on in life, coming to understand the full gravity of that wisdom and what it meant. When we’re younger and we get advice from our elders, sometimes we right it off as stifling or old school, but these things just about always end up ringing true, no matter how big the generation gap.

Erica recalls being told to sit down and pay attention, and feeling like such an instruction was useless. But now, she says, she knows the importance of slowing down and paying attention. Check out the exclusive video above to hear more in this clip from “Get Up! Mornings With Erica Campbell.”
