The Man Of The House

Such a touching and emotional story, this one, the narrator’s voice Gregg LeFevre is beautiful. Such a great podcast to get lost in with these fabulous stories.

Me Too - your mother

Thank you for sharing the story of your mother; she sounds like someone like me — a female not defined by her gender wanting to learn and do all kinds of things. I am several years younger than you and always wanted to be challenged and do the unexpected. Being a small female with only several years of college, I was always under-estimated. I would have loved getting to meet her! Learned about your podcast from Scott Johnson’s website and your “mountain climbing” experience in Las Vegas! Sorry to burst your bubble, but, yes, there is a God and He is not finished with you yet. Best wishes to you, Gregg.
