Wonderful insightful conversations

In this hustling for approval world, Melissa is a breath of fresh air. Helping women who want to live an emotionally and spiritually healthy life, she and her guests do so in honest, authentic ways that deepen their relationship to Jesus. Highly recommended. It is real. No fluff. Just getting down to the grit and grace of it all.
