Informative, honest and practical

I look forward to listening to each podcast as it drops. Many times I’ve finished listening and thought “this is my favorite episode!”. I love the honest dialogue keeping it real, the highly informative rooted in history and research, and the foundational truth of always being anchored in the Bible. My current role is to lead global healing and unity and DEI for a global church in 30+ countries, all to say that despite my already lean in and education in this space, I’m still constantly learning and relearning for the work I do. I’m also a counselor working in a diverse school and a mom through birth and adoption of jewels of many races and I LOVE your podcast. I think everyone should listen and I recommend it all the time to many global pastors and ministry leaders. Thank you for stewarding it so well!!!

Important work here!

If you’re not listening to anything else, Be The Bridge is the thing you should be listening to! I have enjoyed every minute of this podcast while also being challenged to reframe some of the ways I think about things. Very important work! Thank you to Latasha for doing the work.

& all you do
Just what I needed on my walk with Yeshua, the Way, the truth & the life
