Wow!

Christians taking on really tough topics! Unheard of! I will continue to pray for them and hope that hey reach as many of us as they possibly can!

One of the best

These three hosts are bringing topics to the table that are important and crucial. They are honest, real, and funny. I also appreciate how they don’t always wrap a topic up nice and neat at the end. It’s taught me to be okay with not having all the answers and that meaningful conversations can still come out of difficult topics.

Wonderful show

I’ve been listening to this podcast for about a year or 2. It difficult to remember since Corona days make days & months blurry. Lol
Even still, I can honestly say I look forward to every new episode as this trio never ceases to delight and encourage me with their refreshing perspectives & fantastic guests! Awesome team indeed!
