A true light . . .

This podcast and Jesse are truly in the business of bringing true heart-based light into the world. I really appreciate the sensitive way that potentially difficult topics are treated. I was lucky enough to be a guest on Jesse’s podcast and really enjoyed both my experience as a guest and my experience as a listener before and since.

If you’re looking for hope listen here

There are people in the world to create these kind of things for different purposes. Jessie‘s purpose is ) among many others )Is to give people a platform for their voice and give the world hope in a world that desperately needs it. I was honored to be featured on this a few months ago, and it was a game changer for everything in my life. But most importantly? I listen to others in a whole different way knowing that there are so many people who want to make a difference in the world. Podcasts like this need to be supported the way that we click things mindlessly on the Internet, if something like this was to go viral I really do believe the world will change for good forever in a way that’s almost magical. Handful of hope taught me that I can make a difference in the world and that all you really need is a handful of seeds to grow a garden that sustains humanity forever. - Jen V “ finding the shine in people”

Very Powerful! A MUST listen to podcast

Jesse has a way of bringing such joy to painful situations. I’ve subscribed to his FB page for a long time and am very excited that he now has a podcast.
