Ari

I’m listening to the episodes for the second time around. Kenya’s story is food for the black girl soul. Seeking counseling, while navigating life from a black woman perspective with real life relatable yet entertaining moments is healing in itself. Each episode encourages you to look with in and apply what’s relevant to our seasons of life. Looking forward to more! The creativity and innovativeness of this podcast is top tier!

calilyanah ,

One of my favs!

Love this story!

Heir to the King ,

Oouch!

I’ve been listening to the episodes for the second time and like Kenya said for me the first time was about entertainment this going round is about learning mainly about myself. This was too real exchanging something because you think it will get you love but you really was looking for validation. This episode had so much. I got the book and I’ll be digging in. Thanks for doing this so worth.
