Glad I found this podcast!!

This podcast randomly popped up for me and just when I was going to close it out the most recent podcast with Eli Jones screamed at me! I’m glad I listened because it really encouraged me! Will continue to tune it for further episodes. Thank you for creating this podcast!!

Just listened to Ep 8

I stumbled across this podcast by accident as I was looking up an article about working with nonbelievers by ToW. Thank you for making Christians in the workplace an enlightening conversation. I’ve had a hard time in the past with being apart of something as “secular” even though I still want to give God glory even more. These conversations are offering me such a soothing perspective…and even validating some views I’ve had as well. Again, thank you so much.💚
