Thankful

As an almost mid-thirties woman, I am just coming back into a relationship with God. This podcast has made navigating the waters easier and makes me feel less alone. Thank you, Blake

Love Blake and her ministry!

Blake is so relatable! You feel like she is one of your besties as she interacts with her guests. Her emails always seem to be exactly what I needed to hear that day as well! I love how she is super real and vulnerable, asks great questions of her guests, and is able to interject truth bombs and lessons learned throughout the podcast as well! 💕

Very Relatable

Blake is just real and authentic. I’m happy to listen and know that I’m not alone in my walk with Christ 😇♥️
