Casa de Abby

It was a true blessing to be able to share about our mission here in Honduras. Jamie was amazing host and with this being my first podcast helped me understand the process with ease. Thank you Jamie and Truman Charites for taking the time and giving me the space to share about this horrific problem of child sex abuse and trafficking in Honduras. God bless

Meals on Wheels

Jamie, thank you for the thoughtful and informative podcast about meals on wheels. I had no idea that senior isolation was an issue they are tackling in addition to hunger. It’s great to hear how creative, fresh and healthy the food is.

Very inspiring Podcast!

Wow, this was such a wonderful podcast about overcoming the many obstacles you face when you are missing a father figure from a young age. It was so inspiring to hear the voice from each of the different people you interviewed from the Vanishing Fathers book. I loved hearing their advise for future fathers and the loved the way you broke it into episodes and you could really hear and focus for each one. Also so generous that all proceeds will go to charity. Congrats on creating such a well done podcast that I am sure will help and inspire many!
