Very helpful in the book writing space

This podcast is helpful to me as I aspire to someday write a book! I already have a podcast and I have enjoyed listening to this one as I take in the information to one day use my own podcast to market my book.

If God Is Using Your Life Experiences for Others, You Must Listen!

While I am not writing a book, God is always writing our testimony to share with other for His glory. I am so grateful for Kim’s podcasting providing refreshing perspectives as I navigate through using my life experience as a testimony for others!!
