Thank you for the encouragement and just real life. As a new mom of two under two this podcast was so good.

i was so sad when it ended!

Walking with God

I have never read, listened to a book as much as I have listened to you. I love yours and Thomas Rhett’s lives.

I have began making my life about getting closer to God. I’ve started reading the Bible and pray.

FAV PODCAST!!

I have been a big big fan of Lauren for awhile, just ask my husband haha. I’ve listened to this podcast since it’s original release and get so excited every time there is a new season. Lauren and her guests provide such wise insights and practical tips on parenting and especially parenting while walking with Jesus. I’m inspired after every episode and just think the world of Lauren and her community. Keeping making more!! The world needs more of Lauren. She is the mom I strive to be!
