Refreshingly thought provoking and balanced

I grew up in a household that taught me to constantly ask and answer the question why. “Why do you want that”, “why don’t you like this?” So thinking about things critically was and is important to me. However it’s also important to not go too deep and scholarly about things all the time. With that being said, I have really appreciated the deeper, more thought filled content of this podcast which is communicated accessibly and with practical application, not simply for the sake of a deep discussion.

Perhaps the thing I truly appreciate most is the balanced, Bible based answers to all the questions answered here and on the social media page(s).

Thank you so much for this podcast and all you do!!!
