Kailin H. ,

The podcast is a game changer!

For so many years Kirk Franklin has continued to show us his authentic self and what it truly means to be a Christian, flaws and all. Life isn’t about us being picture perfect or trying to impress god with being the “Holiest of Christians”.

Kirk’s gift is speaking to the masses and connecting all of us through his musical geniuses!

He is the bridge that will fill the gap between the different generations within the church!

This post cast has helped me recenter myself and truly reminded me that God is in control.

No matter where you are in your life or whatever you’ve done. God isn’t done with you yet, never lose hope on a brighter tomorrow.

Thank you so much Kirk! Keep preaching and keep working. We’re listen and paying attention.
