Stonecroft’s Ears to Speak podcast acknowledges that often we as Christians haven’t been great listeners or learners in relationships. We want to inspire Christians to practice good listening and communication skills, especially in relationships with people who have a different faith or worldview. We believe God can use these practices to build a foundation of trust that will lead to open conversations about Jesus Christ and faith.
