Hey guys!

Thanks so much for this podcast!
I work landscaping these days so i'm spending hours mowing and trimming and whatnot... Beyond the Box keeps my mind working at a equal pace with my hands.
You always have great guests and topics, I am always challenged and encouraged by your conversations. I appreciate your willingness to question things coupled with your commitment to rootedness in Christ, keep up the great work!
