The Crabapple Tree: Live an Authentic LifeThis episode of the podcast is sponsored by The Crabapple Tree: Live an Authentic Life by Tom O’Toole. It is a story of hope deferred and a renewed belief in the fulfillment of longing. It is a story that elevates the marginalized and calls forth the ostracized. It is a story about the greatest voice speaking into the hopeless heart saying, “I see you. I made you. I love you. I want you. Never forget that love is love.” Learn more at www.tomotoole.net.
