I Shouldn’t Even Like This Podcast!!

The T. Bubble Interview was amazing! It was as if every word she spoke was directly from God & she was preaching specifically on my situation from the pulpit!!

Again, I shouldn’t even like this podcast! I’ve never ever considered myself a singer/songwriter/musically inclined NONE OF THAT!

Yet, this will definitely be a podcast in my rotation! Thank you J. Ford!
