About the Podcast

This podcast began in January 2018

Since 2009 I have been sharing insights, experience, ideas, and wisdom online especially through blogging. In the first episode of the podcast you’ll hear me speak about how I never felt great at blogging (people actually confronted me about my horrible grammar and editing capabilities) but I knew that God has given me much to share.

After spending some time with Jason in 2017 through a mastermind group and traveling down to speak for youth leaders in his Diocese, I knew that God was doing something new. I truly enjoyed my conversations with Jason regarding ministry and it seemed very natural to look ahead with him and discover, with great hope, what God was doing in the Church. This podcast flows from a desire to continue that dialogue with Jason but to share it with the rest of the world!

Thanks for checking it out!
