Best of both

Thoughtful commentary on the Bible but not too heady. Fun to listen to but insightful as well.

A Cup Of Coffee With Jesus’ Friend

I so appreciate Kate’s wisdom and clarity as she shared about the Kingdom. I feel like we are having coffee together and breaking the bread of the Word!

Her episode on emotions was so timely as I go through the grief of a death in the family and heart pain in family relationships’

This is a must podcast for anyone needing a safe place for their heart

Thank you Kate!
