Darlene and Julie Chat Fall, Facial Hair and Friendship – 104


Wonder what happens when your co-hosts leave the outline behind? This week you’re going to find out. From fall festivities to female facial hair, friendship to frustrations in motherhood, they keep it real. This unscripted convo between these two friends, Darlene Brock and Julie Graham, sounds a lot like ones they have in the living room over a cup of coffee. Taking a little break from tackling hot topics, sharing deep thoughts, and discussing challenging issues, instead, they chat about what they’re thinking—talking about their own grit and grace lives! We welcome your questions and comments because we’d like to hear what you think about the subjects we discuss or even some of your own. After all girls, we are in this thing together! Grab your coffee and press play, then pass it on to a friend who loves girl time as much as we do.
