Enjoying the teachings
I'm learning some of the deeper meanings of the scriptures in David's teachings. Thanks for putting it all out there David!
Listened to episode #9 just recently - would recommend it to anyone dealing with loss, as it explores the real process that a relationship goes through, especially during times of poor health and death.
I found David's conversation and message to be real and authentic - a refreshing tone that we need to hear more of these days.
This podcast is truly encouraging and will help you be built up in faith. The interview programs are so special.
