    Even though I have almost a year of sobriety but I love what I call “teachable moments” and each on of these podcasts I’m able to catch, each new person has a teachable moment in their own story because everyone’s hope, strength, and experience is different I also love looking for similarities and I can be like hey I’ve been through that or hey I’m going through that and I never thought of trying to deal with it thos way or that way these strangers share in their stories with the world. These podcasts are a great thing. Especially for people who are having just one of those days with too much alone down time a couple of 30-45 min podcasts of strength hope and experience could help them make it through one more day. Thank you marr and the people telling their stories doing thos for people who have no connection with marr, but thank you, thank you for sharing your stories and the beautiful lives and achievements that have come out of your darkness

      Hi Kathy! Thank you so much for reaching out and for your kind words about the podcast! We are so happy to hear that these stories have been helpful to you.

      I agree with you about how inspiring these people are. Hearing these stories has meant more to me than I can say. Without fail, every time I have moments when I blown away by the person’s wisdom and courage. I can’t help but feel grateful. You are completely right about how much beauty can come out of the darkness.

      Taking in somebody else’s gratitude and hope can change the whole day. Thank you so much for sharing your gratitude and hope with us.
