A great new podcast!

I can’t stop listening! It’s been a great addition to my week. I put on an episode when I’m working out or driving in the car. Looking forward to seeing what guests are coming up next. Highly recommended.

Gleanings from what I’ve heard

Just finished binging these first 4 podcasts!! Thank you Greg!! After a year and a half of what I felt was disappointment with a world I thought I knew, I desperately needed this podcast. Having always been a positive, hopeful, glass half full person I have become weary and doubtful. I was praying and asking God to help me regain the hope I once felt. Then can Godzillion + One:) From Jonathan Pitt I realized I was experiencing “lost expectations”. I was reminded of a saying I was given years ago. Expectations are premeditated resentments. And boy have I resented much of everything in the past year and a half…Christians in particular.! The Jeff Henderson podcast gave me another paradigm shift. What am I FOR not what am I AGAINST! I have been focusing on everything that is IMHO wrong with people and the world. Now I am going to work on seeing what am I FOR!! Because who I really am is everything I am FOR:) Worlds longest review but I needed to share that whether anyone reads it or not it’s my Plus One for today. Thank you for everything you do
