The Mentors I Never Had

Love this podcast, it has changed my life finding such a resource and network of believers who are capable and experienced leaders.

I want to know - do any episodes touch on the concept of rejection? That’s been a hard one for me in my journey lately.

Keep it up! Thanks,
Grace
