This book means a lot to me. I put my life on hold for it. I put a lot into it. I didn’t look at a screen for 7 weeks. I lived with monks at a monastery. And I lived with an Amish family on their farm. And then I lived with my family at home. I didn’t disconnect. I reconnected.  I’m not unpacking everything in the book today. But I am answering some of your questions!  . . . . . Find Micah Kandros’ work here: https://www.micahkandr...

We are rewinding time with this episode. Matt Brown knew me before most.  We’re talking about a season of my life that most people don’t even know EXISTED. That’s right. I used to be a worship leader / Christian music artist. And it all started at Sandals Church under the leadership of Matt Brown. Over 20 years later, and he’s still there! Matt saw me through high highs and low lows. And he and Sandals are a major part of who I am ...

My daughter is getting married, and we are in the THROWS of wedding season.  She had a bridal shower this week, and it was so beautiful to see her surrounded by so many women who have been walking with us for literal DECADES through marriage and parenting and now having adult children who are getting married in 5 weeks! So, I asked them two questions: If you could go back 20 years and talk to yourself as you enter this journey of...

Have you ever created something that you’re really proud of, but when it comes time to share it with the world, you don’t feel like it’s good enough? Or maybe even that you’re not good enough?  Let me tell you something: no matter how many books I’ve written or talks I’ve done or videos I’ve shared, I fear self-promotion.  I’m fearful of what people think of the work itself, but I’m also fearful of what people think of me.  On this...

Yesterday, we witnessed yet another mass shooting in America... This time, on the anniversary of another mass shooting. The Parkland High School mass shooting. They can no longer have their days to mourn. They have to share days.  I think I speak for the majority of Americans when I say that I wonder if we have become desensitized and if we actually will ever do anything. Or have we given up? Accepting this as our new normal. And ...

I’ve talked about a lot of controversial things on Instagram, but I don’t know if I have EVER gotten the kind of reaction that I got from my Taylor Swift reel this week.  When I tell you that comment section is a dumpster fire, I mean it! So I wanted to dig a little deeper into why this feels like such a big deal.  This episode is part commentary, part introspection, and part warning of the underlying toxicity of this controversy. ...
