I have recently discovered Danielle's podcast and now I am binge-listening every chance I get. The mind blown series was exactly that, mind blowingly more beautiful on what I thought I knew about Jesus and about how He wants to relate to humanity, to me. This podcast will instruct, encourage, and bless your spirit. Thanks Danielle.
Mind Blown. Continually.
There’s more room at the table. Always more. This is about being invited into something so much more, so much bigger. We need each other. Love only abounds. YOU ALL are supposed to be a witness. What if this is less about an individualistic perspective and interpretation of scripture, and more about who do we, as God’s people want to collectively be? Just a few nuggets of what has been impactful to me during this series and season in my own faith journey. Thank you so much for putting this into the world and challenging me to press into the hard things.
Thank you for your applicable and inspiring content - especially during these difficult days.
