Great motivation

I’ve read the Bible in a year in 2015, and then I find myself struggling to find time and motivation to repeat this challenge. Here comes this podcast — which gives me not only the motivation, but also a lot of explanation and wisdom. Episodes with Jeff are very enriching, Fr. Mike’s thoughts are eye-opening.
To quote “Gosh!” ;)
