About this Episode

Dave “The Kangaroo” VanVickle and I are bouncing around (see what I did there?) answering your questions about spiritual direction, Church scandals, and bringing Jesus into secular work environments, like the medical field and academia.

Snippet from the Show

*Please continue to pray for Dave’s wife and family during this difficult battle with cancer.
