The Perfect Pairing

Sersie Blue and Gigi Carter have come together to form the perfect wellness mashup. While both are women of faith, Sersie mostly brings the Scriptural content and Gigi largely shares the scientific evidence that supports the adoption of a whole food plant based lifestyle for healthy living. Their mission is to help women of faith become “healthy for our Divine purpose!” This podcast curates content that is informative, inspirational, and transformative. It’s definitely worth giving a listen.
