Such a helpful addition to my devotional time

I’m a stay at home mother, and I just started listening to Bible Talk as I caught up with Priscilla talk, and what a helpful resource! Right now in the stage of life with little people around and not as much time or energy to devote to deep Bible study, I’ve found it so helpful to be listening to the podcasts alongside my Bible reading. I hope to read through the whole Old and New Testaments again this year, and this podcast has been a bolster/prod to do exactly that and glean even more from my daily readings. Thank you all so much for the careful work that you do in showing themes through the whole narrative of Scripture and not being afraid to tackle harder theological questions.
