Stonecroft’s Ears to Speak podcast acknowledges that often we as Christians haven’t been great listeners or learners in relationships. We want to inspire Christians to practice good listening and communication skills, especially in relationships with people who have a different faith or worldview. We believe God can use these practices to build a foundation of trust that will lead to open conversations about Jesus Christ and faith.

Thoughtful dialogue about how to build trust with friends by listening.
Very helpful and theologically sounds
I appreciate this podcast for the topics they discuss and the theological soundness about which they discuss them. All Christians would benefit from listening to these women who are helping us listen better.
Yes on all of this. So grateful for Stonecroft and for this current conversation that Jessica and Madison are leading.
