Wonderful podcast!

Just listened to the Finding Faith episode and thoroughly enjoyed it. The interviewer, Annmarie, asked the best questions and spoke so eloquently. I loved the conversation and want to read the book they were discussing, Dear God. Especially enjoyed the ice breakers at the end as well! I subscribed and am looking forward to more episodes!
