Whispers Of Rest

Listen to my new podcast: Stress Less & Take Care of You + Book Giveaway!

By May 14, 2020 5 Comments

To encourage you in these uber stressful times, I’m launching a NEW Soul Care series for my podcast Coffee Break For Soul to help you stress less + take small steps to live a more peaceful and beautiful life as God’s beloved! I’m thrilled to share this with you!

The purpose is to help you take small steps to stress less and lead a more peaceful and beautiful life as God’s beloved. Each podcast will help encourage you on a soul care topic and renew your faith.

What is it about? I’m inviting women of faith on the show to explore a different topic of stress each week & share simple tips to spark joy, rest & refresh, and help you feel God’s peace and love. I’ll share an inspiring story, a soul care tip, prayer, and faith-renewing conversation to encourage you!

Special Thanks goes to the Beloved Members in the Whispers of Rest Online Book Club Community, whose support makes this possible, helping fund technology & resources to produce this podcast to bless over 25K women through this ministry.
