Thank you for listening to the Orisha Wisdom Podcast!  On this Ask A Priest series of the podcast we are going to begin to tackle the question that burns MANY when they come into our community.  "Why is it so hard to find a Godparent?"  Every day we get this question in one form or another... and it's tough for all those going through this part of the process.  

We hope that you find this episode very helpful because it can begin to give you the insight into the 'why' you might not be able to get your hands on the coveted gold (Godparent).

Episode 34 - Top 10 Reflections of 2019 and Lessons Learned

It is a GOOD thing to reflect on a past year IF we are going to grab lessons that were given to improve our lives and to become better.  Some lessons hit us HARD... some are gentler, and some are huge 'Ah Ha' moments that can pivot how we think and see the world; therefore changing our lives.  

Since we are all humans, every aspect of us intertwines with others.  Listen in and hear what the last year of our last decade showed me.  Do you do a year review?  What did you learn which you are changing this year?  Share your thoughts...
