This Journey Called Life



This purpose of this podcast is to create a space where women can be open and honest about their struggles! We are all struggling but most of us dont share what is going on in our lives and then we feel isolated. You are going to hear women share what they have learned so far in their lives, what they would do differently and what they want for their future.
