Rich + Enriching Content

This is not your typical Christian podcast that cycles through the same handful of guests you hear interviewed on all of your other favorite podcasts. I’m consistently grabbing for a pen and paper to scribble down all of the rich and practical wisdom and knowledge dropped in every episode of this podcast. Thank you Holly, Robert and guests for enriching my life with CXMH!

Whether you're in ministry, work in mental health, or just passionate about this intersection; you need to be plugged into CXMH if you're involved in the conversation about mental health and the church. Been following since the beginning and I'm really encouraged by where this show has gone and where it's going.
