Religion & Spirituality Podcas >

The objective of "This is Life" is to help answer the almighty question, "Why?" We all go through life’s ups and downs. Wouldn't it be nice if there was a place where you could listen to everyday people talk about everyday experiences and gain wisdom on how to handle your own life's battles? We can learn so much from each other if we just listen. This life that we have been given is not only a gift, but a tool to use the experiences of this life and make it better for others. It is our duty as mankind to execute the power inside of us to create peace, love and goodness to this world. Every living soul is worth of unconditional love, respect and kindness. God's love knows no boundaries and neither should ours.
