A breath of fresh air

Faryn I recently learned of your podcast, you are natural and truly a breath of fresh air! I escape the office at lunchtime and look forward to walking with you. I just finished episode 5 with your friend from Trails. We have many friends in our area involved with organizations for children and I cannot wait to pass on what I learned about this fabulous program. Thank you for sharing yourself and making my day a bit better.
