Amber CS ,

So grateful for this podcast!!!

This is meeting me where I’m at spiritually in a way that few other resources are. It’s like water in the desert. The honesty is refreshing. The depth of these conversations speaks to how the podcasts hosts have definitely walked their own journeys with God. Thank you Ruth and Steve and The Transforming Center for being so in tune with the Spirit. 💜

It’s a gem of a podcast

If you’ve read any of Ruth’s books or been a part of a Transforming Community, this podcast is essential. Even if you haven’t, this podcast is essential. Leads listeners into ways to be open to the Divine.

A gift

Ruth’s words of invitation and challenge were a gift to me as I enter into this season of Advent. I appreciate her genuine passion for Jesus and practical exercises to help me BE with Jesus.
