The Hosts

Janie Ratzlaff and Sharon Hoskins share challenging conversations aimed at strengthening our Christian lives in God’s Word. This mentoring format allows Scripture to be discussed with practical everyday applications for our lives.

Janie and Sharon are not pastors, just two friends fulfilling the command to “…guide older women to be reverent in goodness in the way they live…and encouraging younger women to love their families with self-control and purity.” (Titus 2:3-5 Paraphrase from The Message). This program gives the listeners an opportunity to join in and be part of it.

Janie and Sharon are dedicated to teaching women how to share their hearts from generation to generation. This comes from teaching women how to share one another’s burdens and continue to develop relationships with each other as they mature in Christ.
