Most of us love the idea of grace for ourselves. In theory, it's great for others, too. (Until we have to give grace, that is). But have you ever thought of grace as scary? Well, we think a real understanding of grace can be frightening for those of us who love to control and measure our own growth and progress. Join the team as we struggle through this concept of scary grace...

We also mention our new Uncommon [good] Spotify Pl...

Do you feel like you have nothing to bring to the table these days? Between homeschooling, trying to work, staying healthy, and just managing life in 2020, we sure feel spent at the end of the day. Kinda like we have nothing much to offer. Well, in this episode, Ryan springs a topic on us (after we start recording) and something sure comes from nothing.

    The Uncommon [cast] is back! In this episode we talk about control in the midst of a 2020 that is wildly out of control. Yes, so much of this year has shown us how little control we actually have. So the Uncommon [team] wants to encourage you with some hope and advice on where to place your footing on the shaky ground that is 2020. Also Ryan shares about nearly getting in a fight with a disgruntled resident near the beach where he ...

    In February 2020, we had an event where we talked about Rest. And we enjoyed the conversation so much that we decided to post the audio. During the night we reference a few things, but especially a book called The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry by John Mark Comer. We strongly encourage you to read it... and when you do... COFFEE ON US!!! We'd love to talk with you about what you learned and what you got out of the book!

    So... This episode is just one word. Super short. ;) We kid! We kid! This was such a great conversation with Dan Britton about choosing a word for your year. And how it goes much deeper than goals and resolutions. How choosing a word can make you more aware of that word's impact in your life, and more importantly, how it can help you be a blessing and have impact on others.

    Dan is the Co-author of One Word That Will Change Your ...

    Dawn and Ryan had the privilege of sitting down with our good friend [and leader in all of our lives], Ken Blanchard.

We love Ken's heart and ability to humbly direct the conversation towards Jesus and following Him. As an added treat, Ken's friend and colleague,...

    This week we sit down with a leader in our life, Arnell Motz (in Ryan's nice cool dining room, not the hot sultry tree house). Arnell was one of Dawn and Ryan's professors at Bethel University. He's got an incredible story and is basically one of the most interesting men in the world. (Dos Equis, do you want a new spokesman? Or a podcast to sponsor?). 

    By the time you hear this episode, Arnell will be in Ethiopia Pastori...

    Where do we start with this episode? Soooo good in so many ways! We sit down with one of our new best friends, Russ Johnson of the Table Network. Russ and Tony from Table have been kindred spirits of ours since we met. And in this conversation, we cover the gamut of church, culture, grace, Gospel, discipleship, reclaiming truth, and what it means to be human... all woven around Russ' incredible story of how he ended up where he...

    This was a really cool conversation with Markus Watson about finding the sacred in the ordinary things of life. Markus shares his story in a real and vulnerable way about how he came to realize that everything is spiritual. He also gives us a super interesting history lesson of why we often think that only church things and church people are "sacred". Plus he shares about the huge impact his not-so-huge church is having on ...

    In this episode, we sit down to discuss what makes a space sacred with Stephanie Firenze of FWRD Fitness in Rancho Bernardo (San Diego). Stephanie is creating a space of belonging for everyone no matter where they are on their wellness journey. And through that, she and her team create something ... sacred. If you're creating spaces for anyone (church, business, home, etc), you will want to hear what Stephanie has to say!

    In this week's podcast, we tackle the phrase "God will never give you more than you can handle" and other unhelpful out of context phrases we throw out into the ether... Also – much to Dawn and Cody's chagrin – Ryan brought Slim Jims as a snack... Oh, yeah!!!

    We mention towards the end that we have a ton of events coming up over Summer 2019. You can learn more at uncommongoodsd.com/events

    Recently we had the privilege of sitting down with Rabbi Mendy from the Chabad of Poway. It was such a rich and awesome conversation inside the Chabad itself. But. The recording stopped a few minutes in!!! Nooooo....

    This week on our podcast we talk about that big leather-bound gold-leafed book that is gathering dust on so many people's shelves across America... The Bible. 

    We're big fans of the Bible... But what if we told you, the Bible isn't the foundation of our faith? WHOA!!! Wait a minute... let's not get crazy now, right?

    Seriously though, this thing we call Christianity didn't start because of the Bible. The Bible exis...

    This week the team sits down at Dawn's Kitchen table [cause treehouses don't have wifi] for a conference call with a leader who helped shape us all: Dr. Bruce Humphrey. After retiring from the Senior Pastor gig, Bruce went on a journey of redefining himself. Which led him to the world of interfaith dialogue and leadership. Buckle up for a great conversation about finding unity in diversity, and checking our Westernized hype...
