@shaunaletellier ,

Fantastic, gospel centered interviews

Christine asks insightful and helpful questions. She and her guests are biblically solid and wonderfully compassionate. Christians struggling with a variety of mental or spiritual health issues will find the kind of encouragement that lifts ones burden by pointing us to Christ who has carried it all. They will also hear gentle, practical advice from fellow believers. It’s professional and well done.
