A Divine Podcast

I’ve been trying to write a review for about a month now and couldn’t really find the words to describe how amazing and essential this podcast is to me. I was listening to the latest episode with Sherrell Dorsey and she said “this podcast was made for me, I have been looking for this my whole life” I erupted in a yassssss, two snaps and a hand clap! Cause baby, YASSSSSS that’s exactly how I feel. From the content, the authenticity, and the guest les so intentionally brings on the show! It is legit DIVINE WORK!
Thanks Les for sharing your precious gift with us. 💖
