"This is not your typical Christian Podcast for women, if you’re looking for fluff, this isn’t it! You will constantly be reminded that we are sinners with hope through the Gospel. Gretchen and Katie will point you to Jesus time and time again."

Madalyn Reviews

"It’s been so great to feel like I have less to do after listening to a podcast. They continually just point to Christ’s sufficiency instead of giving helpful tips to improve your life. Also the Midwest accent is super fun and they keep it light."

Misty Podcasts

"I love the way Gretchen and Katie give practical and spiritually freeing ideas for practicing spiritual disciplines. Injecting light humor makes this podcast something I look forward to listening to."
