Life-changing!!

I am so thankful that the Lord brought me to this podcast. It's truly been life changing! Dr. Laura is incredibly gifted in "speaking truth in love". Her insightful and thoughtful talks are filled with are filled with biblical wisdom and professional expertise on mental health topics that are so needed and timely! It's eye opening, encouraging, uplifting, transparent, honest, thoughtful and SO relatable. I also love helpful the reflection questions after each episode which makes this podcast even more of a gem! One thing this podcast promotes is being "a lifelong learner". It's amazing discovering these things about ourselves and the phrase that keeps my heart so hopeful as I listen is "Your past doesn't have to define your future" ️ I really feel like God is using this podcast as a way to take away any shame/guilt/confusion we have about our past and replace it with His grace and loving kindness towards us. And with that gift and newfound empathy, we can then extend that grace to ourselves (especially our younger selves) and others. Thank God His mercies are new every day! There are a million other things I could say but for now, I will recommend it to everyone I know! :)

Love this podcast.

I heard you for the first time in the podcast with Mandisa. I really enjoy your podcast because is transparent is peaceful is real. As a Spanish podcaster myself, I really enjoy a podcast that is companionate, and so informative. Thank you for your heart and creating this safe place for so many. God bless you.
