A 9 time GRAMMY nominee—a 5 time Dove Award Female vocalist of the year, 500 million streams and multiple #1 albums and singles on the Billboard Charts.

The song has been ringing through the rafters of Hopetown already this summer, as it does every year. It’s one of our kids’ favorites. They have hand motions and have the best time reminding themselves and each other of these words of truth. “My lighthouse, I will trust the promise. You will carry me safe to shore.” The song is My Lighthouse from Rend Collective and we would highly recommend you listen to it with the kids in your l...

Sissy had one of her favorite experiences of the past few years with this week’s guest Dwan Hill and his delightful wife, Laura. They didn’t have a chance to meet that night, but Sissy was immediately a fan—of Dwan, of his music, and of the wonderful work he is doing through The Choir Room. Sissy and David have been wanting to have Dwan and Laura on the podcast ever since! Dwan is a 3x GRAMMY award-winning, 2x Dove award-winning, ...

We wish there had been a camera in the car when our amazing friend and publicist Jana Muntsinger emailed to tell us Anne Lamott had said yes to being on our podcast. We lost our minds—literally, you guys. We were both screaming, “Are you kidding me?!” over and over in the car! We still can’t believe it. If you’re unfamiliar with Anne Lamott, buckle up—she is one feisty, wise, brilliant, spitfire of a human being. She might be a new...

On Episode 80, we had a psychologist named Dr. Michael Thompson on the podcast to discuss the social connections of kids. He talked about the importance of summer camp for kids and said the very best part of summer camp is “that you’re not there.” Makes sense. We have talked to and witnessed the impact of camps for countless kids over the years…not just the skills learned like archery and horseback riding, but the independence and...
