Strictly Good News

This morning on the show we shared good news all morning long.

Hunter was inspired by his favorite actor, John Krasinski, who during this quarantine started a youtube channel. His channel is titled “SomeGoodNews”. It is a self produced news show only for sharing good news. John shares heart warming stories and says others should be sharing good news as well.

So we did just that this morning, shared good news. If you want access to the stories we shared and so many other good news stories click HERE.
