    From New Age to New Life AJourney to Jesus | Caroline Dooner

    Author, influencer and ex-New Age follower Caroline Dooner joins Blake to share her journey from disordered eating and new age spirituality to Christianity. Despite dabbling in witchcraft and the occult, seeds were planted that kept pointing her to Jesus as the answer.

Ultimately, Caroline found that calling on the name of Jesus brought instantaneous peace and freedom from the fear, anxiety and demonic torment she had been experiencing.

Honest and Real.

I love listening to someone who is knowledgeable on what they are talking about, and puts it out there in black and white. I relate to Blake on many issues involving conservative Christian upbringing and some of the struggles and barrier breaking that came/comes along with it. Highly recommend

M&D Mama ,

Love

I love this podcast. I can’t get enough about the honesty and how Blake is so unapologetically herself. Putting her faith first but talking about real topics!! Love this!

CassMich00 ,

Truths.

I love your idea here and I hope that it is reaching the right people to encourage them❤️

The episode released on May 14 about church relocating really struck me.. we recently went through a large slip in a church I grew up in. The leaders of the church were moving in a “woke” direction, and 89% of the population voted to leave and start a new church that was preaching biblical truth.

I think the most important think about a church is what they are preaching. We have to remember that while checking those boxes are important, they are not going to determine our salvation…
