Whether you’re spiritual, cynical, religious, or not quite sure, Rob invites you into the questions, wrestling with what it all means and why we find spiritual topics so fascinating. As 2014 comes to a close, Rob shares the tools everyone can begin using now to start the New Year off right — moving forward in your life, owning who you are and becoming who you are meant to be. Produced by Harpo Studios. Executive produced by Jonathan Sinclair and Rob Bell.
