A Beautiful Storyteller!

Christine weaves fascinating stories while sharing how communication impacts and inspires us. Her love of people, psychology, and heart-felt experiences guide us to uncover and discover our own stories and how we connect and communicate with others. Every conversation is a healing journey felt deeply from the soul. It’s obvious how Michelle and Christine guide people to more awareness, compassion, peace, and self-love. Love this!

Communication is key to relationships.

Christine, great show. I’m loving it.
Christine is dedicated to the topic of communication. Words are important. My speech coaches have always talked about the importance of words in communication. My first recollection of a conversation was our disagreement about whether it would rain in Spain. You want that one, but I also lived when you called the gaters on my shoes shoe umbrellas. That will always be remembered.
Keep up the great podcast. I’m
Looks forward to learning more.
