Edifying and thoughtfully selected!

As a busy mom who doesn’t have as much time to read as I would like, this podcast is a God-send! I often listen with my young children (4, 6, 8) who also enjoy!

Satisfied in Singapore ,

Whimsical & Witty

Thanks for sharing your love of story!
I don’t have as much time to read as I’d like. Appreciate the variety—I’ve met some old favorites as well as new friends.
