  • After the Show: Christian Desert Ammas
    In After The Show, Episodes, Season 2, Words
    I feel this ‘After the Show’ Blog should be different. I have spent much time with these women as I’ve studied, explored, yelled at, cried with, and overall established a connection that has stretched my relationship with the Divine in ways I would […]
