  1. What a refreshing listen to podcast #19 on “spiritually healthy ways of measuring success”. It took me back through my own personal journey of 65 plus years and reminded me of some of the timeless principles that God has taught me along the way. For example, I am reminded once again that whatever we do whether in the midst of the crowds of life with all the business of life OR alone spending time intimately with God, it is all for the glory of God and we have unconditional acceptance from our Creator through the precious blood of Christ!


    • That’s so helpful Steve, thank you! God has been teaching me this slowly but surely, I am so thankful for his faithfulness, and oh how I wish I were a quicker / better learner!


  2. Hey Noah, I haven’t listened to the interview yet, just checking in to say hi. You and your ministry came to mind and hope/pray that you’re knowing grace in everything.


    • Thanks for checking in Alan! Things are going well. Thanks for supporting my blog and podcast, it really means a lot to me and is very helpful to my publishing efforts. I’m excited about my upcoming podcast guests: authors Wesley Hill, Zack Eswine, musician Derek Webb and Utah state senator Todd Weiler.
