That Makes Total Sense!

Religion & Spirituality Podcasts >

Have you ever been going along in life, doing something the way you’ve always done it, and then seen someone comes beside you and does it completely differently? Maybe it’s those conversations we’ve all had – they range from deep faith issues, to parenting, to finances, to work and we’ve always thought about things in a certain way. It’s definitely different, but the more we listen, the more we see how that makes total sense! It’s not about changing our convictions as much as it’s about messing with our methods. We’ll hear the personal stories of friends I’ll be interviewing who are doing things in new and innovative ways. We’ll ask and answer questions from clients and audience members specifically about money and how we relate to it. And we’ll explore some faith teaching together. In all of these, in each episode we’ll pause and say to each other – That Makes Total Sense!
