So excited to have Jen Hatmaker on to talk about these 4 things with Amy: 

STARTING OVER: 

In 2020, after 27 years of marriage, Jen found herself unexpectedly getting a divorce...forcing her to start things over! She talks about the suffering and loss and how she was able to rebuild and heal (regarding this topic...please go to Jen's Instagram, @JenHatmaker, and read her post from July 26th with the side by side picture of herself 2 years apart to the date...it's crazy/awesome how much lighter she looks this year!!) 

 

BEING OUTSIDE OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE: 

Jen is no stranger to writing (she's a New York Times bestselling author!!) but she just wrote a cookbook for the first time and she definitely had to step outside of her comfort zone + learn to flex new muscles during that process! Her cookbook is called Feed These People (releasing 10/18) and it's all about cooking for normal people, hospitality, & the importance of the table! Amy's favorite sections are for sure: "Food That Goes In Carbs" & "Food When You Have No More Damns To Give." Click Here to order!

 

EMPTY NESTING (sort of): 

Jen has no kids living with her for the first time since she was 23; and the "sort of" part is because Remy (a junior in high school) is doing a year abroad in Spain - so Jen is experiencing a quiet home for the first time in a very, very long time and she shares what that's been like for her!


GRATITUDE: 

Jen does '4 Things Gratitude' by giving us a TV show, a book, a drink, and an Instagram follow that she is currently thankful for!

TV show: Derry Girls (Season 3 recently came out)
Book: Codependent No More by Melody Beattie
Food/Drink: Old Fashioned
Instagram Follow: @VicBlends

The Piketon Massacre

The Piketon Massacre

The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
