Every story is just perfect!

I absolutely love every episode of this podcast. It’s been truly a journey to the manger! Every story, every part of this podcast is just perfect all well prayed and thought out.
When I think it can’t get any better then the following episode comes and goes directly to my heart, my soul. At the end of each episode I find myself with tears of joy, hope and Jesus reassuring me He’s always been and He will always be by my side!
Thank you and may the Lord continue to bless you with his great gifts!

My favorite Advent ritual

(Almost) every morning this Advent, I’ve been sitting down at the table with my toddler, lighting our Advent wreath, and listening to this podcast while she eats her breakfast and I drink my coffee. It has been such a beautiful and peaceful way to start our days, and I am so grateful for the chance to slow down and sit with other women as we “journey to the manger” together. These stories have made me think, brought me hope, and brought me to tears, and have been such a beautiful reminder of the meaning of this season of joyful anticipation. Thank you!!!
