Live Ridiculously Responsive to the Promptings of God

The Ridiculous Hour Foundation is a nonprofit dedicated to inspiring lives ridiculously responsive to the promptings of God. Monthly, the Foundation releases mission packs that challenge recipients to grow in practical responsiveness to the promptings of God. In this podcast, Founder Kat Silverglate brings each mission challenge to life through story, expanded content, prayer and ridiculous encouragement. Won't you join us as we grow toward ridiculous responsiveness?
