Ben & Jason decided to work through the pain and brokenness, and found a stronger friendship on the other side.

    Ep. 113 || Does the church promote gluttony? Is it a problem if they do? Listen in as we chat with health & fitness coach Kate Muesing

    We fill all the buckets today during our chat with Kate! Listen in as she shares her personal story about mental & physical health, and how her faith informs the way she sees the world. Kate is a group fitness instructor and health coach who is passionate about bringing her faith in Jesus into her approach to healthy living. Things get a little uncomfortable when Jason asks a risky question about Kate's methods, and the heat gets turned up a notch more as we discuss whether or not it is the church's place to speak about gluttony and other "touchy" health related subjects.
