This podcast has been amazing for setting the year off with more spiritual discipline! Carving out 20-30 min in the morning to listen, has been game changing! Love the Christian Standard Version and how it grabs my attention, and have recommended the podcast to so many and will continue!
What a great voice to listen to. The music choices and the pauses for reflection really draw you in to focus on and retain the text.
Love this so much! I’m doing a YouVersion Bible in a year plan, but LOVE being able to download and listen to Commuter Bible because it never loses connection/gets interrupted! So thankful for all the hard work that you’ve put in to this! Grateful. Grateful. Grateful.
