Sinopsis

In the summer of 2016, two graduate school friends had an idea. They wanted to create a community in which young Christian women like themselves could come to laugh, cry, be inspired, and grow together as they sought to cultivate their personal and professional lives in the context of the 21st Century. So, they created Just2Pearls, a podcast that allows them publicly to laugh, cry, inspire, and grow by chatting about everything from faith to love to relationships to feminism to politics to pop culture and everything in between and they do it all in pearls. Through the podcast, the women of J2P pray that you will cultivate the pearl within you!
