Thoughtful and thought provoking

I just gobbled up all 3 seasons and can’t wait for the next episode. As a family physician, life changing and difficult conversations are part of my day. I feel Kate’s words and wisdom help me approach people and my own life from the most empathetic way possible.
I do feel showing up for each other with love and kindness is the most important mission. Thanks for your inspiration.

I’m so glad I found this podcast!!

I read my first Kate Bowler book 2 years ago and it’s on a very short list of books that I’ve read 3 times. The first time I read it....as soon as I finished it, I started over again.
And then a few months ago, I discovered her podcast! So far, every episode that I listen to....I hit repeat and listen again. So insightful, deep, relevant, and thought provoking! I love Kate’s perspective and communication style! And so far....every guest has something new for me to learn. I am sharing episodes with my daughter and best friend as soon as I finish them.

Love, love, love this podcast!

PS....on my Christmas wish list is a letter board so I can post the “Mottos”.

So gentle

Gentle is the word I think best fits Kate. She is thoughtful and kind to everyone, including herself. Listening to her podcast feels like you are getting a warm hug from a friend who always know what to say.
