My favorite podcast!!!!
A must listed!
My husband recently shared this podcast with me and I am soooo grateful that I’ve taken the time to listen to these discussions. It was so true when they said, “They don’t know what they’re getting in these podcasts.” I have a VERY similar church past to Jon, who shares a snippet of his testimony in ep. 2. I’ve struggled spiritually so much after getting out and this is the first time that I felt like someone else understood! Cried through the whole episode. So thankful for the transparency and realness. Will definitely be a faithful listener. “Become a better you so that we can become a better us.”
Refreshing and timely discussions!! Each episode pushes me towards mature thought and that is leading me to mature actions. Plus it’s refreshing to hear mature men speak.
