Such Personal Stories!

Podcast offers such great topics that are relatable.

I listen weekly and the topics and guests are just amazing. I highly recommend the most recent which is a two part series. The guest is Ashley McCombs Mizell who suddenly went blind after being diagnosed with Sarcoidosis. She is a mom of three boys. Her strength and courage through learning her new normal stopped me in my tracks. Listen to her story and subscribe to this podcast. You will not be disappointed.
