A lovely listen!
If you loved (or are thinking about reading) Joy's book, Penduka, you'll love this, its companion podcast. It'll walk you through her book, chapter by chapter, and help you digest what you read. If you read the book, or are planning to, this is a must listen. :)
I could listen all day!
Not only is Joy a delight to listen to, she is full of wisdom and encouragement! The grace and humor she uses to come alongside the listener is a breath of fresh air!
Joy is an absolute delight! The author of Penduka serves up a delicious podcast filled to the brim with authenticity and raw humility, grace-laced encouragement, and an African accent that tickles your ears and scatters joy in your soul.
Joy has been gifted with amazing insight to the hearts of women, hearts that ache to know their calling and divine purpose. I have personally given this book and study guide set to several of my dear friends, and they have gobbled it up and out it to work in their own lives. Thank you for sharing your gift with us, Joy.
