So Good

After about 3 minutes I felt like I was sitting down with a best friend instead of listening to a podcast of someone I’d never met. Very genuine. Like a deep breath for my scattered brain. I leave with practical take-aways every time.

Biblical PRACTICAL advice and wisdom

I’m always looking for sound, Biblical advice and encouragement that I can put to practical use. This podcast has everything I’ve been looking for. I always leave feeling encouraged and spurred on to enjoy life and the tasks that are before me. She’s easy to listen to, very logical in her presentation and... thank the Lord, no small talk! 🙌🏼 I can’t stand podcasts with 15 minutes of small talk at the beginning. She dives straight into the subject matter.
