Facing Forward Review

For someone who’s been so skeptical about the subjects Kara covers in the “Facing Forward” series I’ve developed totally new perspectives on these topics. I now know how real, impactful, and life changing these topics and practices can be. Facing forward for me will be about trying to integrate what Kara and her guests discuss. I sincerely feel I can only make positive changes in my relationships, lifestyle, and my future by slowing and intentionally putting these ideas and practices into my life. Great job and I look forward to more “Facing Forward”!

There’s always a few things I take away from each episode.

I don’t identify as a spiritual person but the more I listen to Kara the more my innate spirituality comes out. I love the conversions and the guests she has one. There’s always a few things I take away from each episode.
