Mike and Susan Adams are at it again in this fresh podcast. They bring a much needed voice to Christendom looking at life and Scripture through the lens of God’s grace. So if you’re tired of the legalism of do and the legalism of don’t, this is the podcast for you.
I can't name a more encouraging & gospel-rich podcast...you're gonna love it!
Authentic and relatable
I’ve listened to many podcasts but this may be my favorite! Mike and Susan are so genuine and open about their lives, struggles, and questions and share the way Jesus has met them in it all! I am not alone in my deconstruction and reconstruction !
