Matt Kennedy Podcast

The Matt Kennedy Podcast is a weekly, 20 minute journey released every Monday designed to help us kick off our day/week right by inviting God into the business of our life for the nourishment of our soul. I started this podcast because Life is Busy and God is Important and I never want to let the business of this life push out, drown out, crowd out the most important relationship of all; the one we have with the Almighty God.

Ep. 022 If The Shoe Fits- Human Solutions To Divine Problems

Listen as we discuss how to trust God for His timing.
