    The Good of Celebration - A Father's Day Podcast

    In this episode, we celebrate Father's day, and unpack the good that comes from celebrating the people in our lives. All the more special when the good reveals itself in the midst of the heartbreak of loss.

    Unlikely History Makers

    Unlikely History Makers

    What do a letter-writing school age girl, the father of a toddler with Downs Syndrome, a WWI soldier on the front lines, and a civil rights icon have in common? They all made history for some very unusually normal things. In this episode, we are going to look at people who became famous for things that we do, or could do every day: writing letters, sitting on a bus, playing soccer, or just showing love to a child. Special thanks to Nate Frazier, Stephen Green and Stephen Carter who continually show me what doing good looks like and provided the inspiration for this episode.

    Rosa Parks and the beginning of the Montgomery Bus Boycott

Love it!

Great podcast, it’s entertaining & inspiring.

Mike Dunay ,

So encouraging to her about good things!!

It’s amazing how hearing just one story of goodness let alone many can break away the weight of the countless bad stories we allow to build up on our hearts and minds throughout the day, week, season. There is exponential power in what Kenneth is doing through this podcast. I definitely recommend this listening!!
