Fun to listen to!

This podcast is my FIRST listen every Tuesday morning! I love it sooooo much!! I have 2 teenagers, an elementary child, and a preschooler at home right now. Every podcast episode highlights something I can learn with at least one age group for my family. My favorite episodes are the ones geared toward personality types, because they have helped me to understand my kids at an even deeper level. Karen is always so practical and so gracious, and Sunny has a warmth about her each time she talks. I love both of them and we have never met! I financially support this ministry monthly and wish I could give even more. It’s truly my greatest resource as a mom! Thank you to everyone who makes it possible for this ministry to thrive!!!

Love the James Bible study

Thank you so much for sharing the James Bible study. It has been such an easy way to learn more about God’s word and how I can apply it to every day life. And it’s all at my finger tips, whenever and wherever I want to listen. Thank you and God bless all you do.
