Wisdom & Motivation You Need o Hear

I don't have kids yet, but listening to your most recent episode about dads working from home was really helpful. Burnout is real, and I really appreciate that you're bringing it to light so that people don't reach that point and lose their fire. I wish I had heard this sooner in my career because this was exactly me and it took me a few years before I could re-ignite that fire and drive that I had earlier in my career. Looking forward to listening more of your episodes later. Subscribed!

Great faith based show, awesome host, give it a listen.

Content Not Just For Dads

This may be a podcast focused on dads but it's helpful for moms too. I'd encourage other wives who find this to share it with their husbands! God bless!
