"I am a 12-year-old girl who loves AFR. "Readings from Under the Grapevine" is Awesome! My brothers sometimes listen to it, and I listen to it when I can, which lately has been almost all day. We were introduced to an Orthodox church a couple of months ago, and we are working our way into becoming Orthodox Christians. Thank you so much for AFR."
