Coffee Break For Your Soul Podcast

“Good friends, good books and dreams: this is the ideal life.” Mark Twain

There’s nothing like a good conversation to make the journey less lonely, sweeter and worth remembering.

We live life once to experience it. Then we live it again in retrospect with a friend so that it can be shared.

I’m glad you’re here. Grab a cup of coffee and pull up a chair.

I love meeting people and hearing their stories.  As is. We become a little more real when we give words to the journey. And the world becomes a warmer place.  Let’s find kindreds and swap some stories.  And together, life will be as God intended.  Savored. Shared.
