Rose has an amazing perspective and is a great conversation host. Seriously looking forward to this show.
Welcoming, relaxed, curious and respectful
Rose has a style that welcomes her listener to sit down at the table and join the conversation with her guest. Listening to this podcast is like sharing a meal with friends and getting to know one of them really well. Delving into the spiritual life of her guests, Rose's questions allow the significant aspects of each person's faith story to unfold. Each conversation is interesting and often surprising at times. I find it a joy to listen and look forward to each new release.
Rose is Amazing!
I discovered Rose when she was interviewed on the Carey Nieuwhof Leadership Podcast. I was hooked and immediately had to find her podcast and jump in!
Rose has an amazing way of welcoming people with a different world view and engaging them in conversations from which we can all benefit. Since listening to her podcast I feel that I have begun to communicate with others differently and more openly.
