A Journey to the Father’s Heart

I’m so blessed to find this podcast! Have been following each day and discover new things always! Reading the Bible stories that I know since I was a child accompanied by Fr. Mike really opens my horizon on the stories I know and give them new nuances, adding depth and significance that I never knew before. Truly Father, you have helped me to convert, to change my perspective, and to know the heart of the Father. Thank you Ascension team for putting all this together!
