Customer ReviewsSee All
Incredible real stories, of God’s hand upon some very high profile lives. Wonderful to see God work through each storyteller. Love Paul’s relatable narrative interview style. Plus, in person Paul is so humble and joyful. He spent so much time with me, a new podcaster, at a podcasting conference we attended. His character shapes this moving podcast. I am compelled to subscribe!
One of my favorite podcasts!
So encouraging to hear so many stories of God working in people’s lives.
An oasis in the desert!
This podcast has been a refreshing oasis in what often seems like a desert of negativity. As I’ve listened to every episode in both seasons, I’ve been reminded that God’s grace truly is amazing!
