My favorite podcast!

I absolutely LOVE the "Finding Holy" podcast. Ashley pours so much wisdom and thought into her questions, and is the best interviewer of all her guests. I don't usually listen to podcasts, but I always make a point to listen to 'Finding Holy'. I get so much out of every episode! I love that not only is there great wisdom in each conversation, but that they always end in figuring out a way to take the information and apply it to our everyday lives. I also love the laundry routine part of each episode...such a fun and creative way to bring Jesus into our everyday, boring routines.

Always full of wisdom and grace

I find so much substance in every episode, even in the ones I don’t expect. There are always practical take aways and life applications that help me to live a more gracious life, more closely connected both to God and to the world around me.
