How do you talk to your kids or loved ones about God when you feel like you don't have all the answers? When you have big questions of your own? How about when the story books and church lessons don't seem to fit with what you know about faith, and God, and Jesus? Author Matthew Paul Turner began writing children's books because he faced those same challenges in talking to his own kids about God and faith. Listen in as ...

Is anyone really doing okay right now? Maybe its okay to not be okay. Maybe if we acknowledge that we are not okay, it actually helps others be real about how they are doing. Maybe, just maybe, showing up as our authentic, messy selves is exactly what the people in our lives need... so that we can all feel less alone in this crazy time. And maybe, choosing to sit and keep each other company in hard times is kinda like what Jesus di...

Okay! Every once in a while we find a kindred spirit who speaks our language and has been through some of the same stuff we have. Just a couple of minutes into this convo we knew we had found just that. Author Kristen LaValley shares about the hurt she and her husband experienced which led them out of the church walls to find God in the "wilderness". Which in their case is an RV traveling across the country... with three ki...

A few days after the attack on the Capitol Building on 1/6/2021, we sat down with Charles Clemons, author of the book Undivided: A Biblical Response to What Divides U.S.
Not only was it a timely convo for recent events, but it also is a perfect launching point for our focus this year: TwentyTwentyONE, where we will be talking a lot about unity in these very divisive times. We're stoked to dive in! Now here's some more info a...

When we find ourselves in a whirlwind, we have a few choices... get angry, play the victim, or... ride the storm, and hopefully make peace with it... Such a great convo with our friend, author, mom, creative, and yes... Beach Tennis Pro, Laura Haver. We talked about the fun things she's been doing with her family during the pandemic, Netflix, self-forgiveness, her upcoming book, and a little thing called Hedonic Adaptation... A...

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.

    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...

    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 ...

    • If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

    • Dr. Death

      We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
