JerusalemJoy ,

Appreciate the podcasts

Wish they were the whole conversation or longer…

Mrs. Wiebe ,

Good advice- just wish the episodes weren’t so short!

I wish the episodes released were the whole conversation- it’s frustrating having to reboot every different episode!!

oliviarba ,

Wonderful ❤️

I love the messages and insights and that serious topics are discussed with positivity and some humour.

I love that the podcasts are short and sweet because if there’s something that stands out to me it’s easy to have time to show my hardworking and busy husband so we can have our own conversation about it.
