Love!

As a recovering alcoholic myself, working a 12-step program, i LOVE how Genay has devoted her podcast to “conscious contact” with the God of our own understanding. She brings a fresh and open minded approach to the topic with both ease and humility. I highly recommend subscribing!

New to podcasts

I heard about your podcast from watching ACME acres and, I’m very new to listening podcast as of right now I’m on season 2 episode 3. I listen to your podcast nonstop while I’m at work as well as on my way back home. I love all that you and Susan talk about, some stuff that I could relate too a little and I’m 23.
