Thank you Lauren and Annie!!!

This is by far my FAVORITE podcast. I was so disappointed when I found out it was 8 episodes. I hope it will have another season. These episodes were great to listen and discuss with friends and really discuss this even further in our own lives. There are so many resources they share that have also been great tools in my life as well. By far my favorite podcast and book this year.

Grateful

I have really enjoyed this podcast. It is not only a way to bring me joy, but leads me closer to Christ. Throughout each episode something is mentioned, that I feel the Holy Spirit is speaking directly to me. I don’t mean an, “Ad” either. Rather it has been the book “Walking with God,” or it has been “Giving up social Media.” I appreciate Lauren allowing God to use her as a vessel. Highly suggest this, and her book. I pray Lauren keeps being “her true self.” It’s making a difference.

Good with some concerns

I like the message but I worry she borders on white saviorism. It felt like this was close to the podcast The Missionary. I really hope she uses her fame for true good but I am not sure.
