Loved these so much! So encouraging and strengthening ♥️
Don’t Listen While Running
I love listening to podcasts while I run but don’t listen to Jonathan and Melissa while running because you’ll cry a lot and your knees might buckle. This podcast is SO good for the heart and soul. It radiates with truth and echos what the Holy Spirit is saying to all of us: lean in. So good. But ya, don’t listen to it while running.
I love how the Helsers can speak such powerful heart language. They teach so well and put words to things I’ve only ever thought or felt. Wow
