Listen to wisdom from the sayings of the desert Fathers to encourage you on during this Lenten season.
"By way of encouragement, AFR is awesome. I'm a detective, and when I enter notes from a creepy investigation (I work in "crimes against children"; they're ALL creepy), putting music on headphones is a real touchstone for me. I've recommended AFR widely."
