I’m loving it!
So impressed with the way this has rolled out. Such an solid podcast. The interviews really answer questions and address circumstances on the inside of all of us. It creates a really practical and encouraging environment for each person’s heart to personally grow and flourish, all while supporting unique individual gifting. Such and edifying addition to my day. Can’t wait for more to come!
Coloring Outside The Lines
Today’s podcast was very inspiring to remain myself. That being true to myself allows me to accomplish things I’m meant to do. As well not comparing myself to others and what they’re doing. We’re all unique in our own ways. I also was impressed that as Savannah is a powerful leader she always is leaving room and space for those that walk along side her to remain themselves. Very thoughtfully spoken.
