I love when our friends from She Reads Truth, Amanda Bible Williams and Raechel Williams, come and talk all things SCRIPTURE.

I'm so happy that I got to talk with my friend, Jennifer Rothschild, about her new Bible Study, Amos: An Invitation to the Good Life. Jennifer carries such wisdom and I cherish her friendship. We got to chat all about the Bible (let's GO minor prophets!), what she learned from studying the book of Amos, and the freedom that follows injustice and forgiveness. I CAN'T WAIT to see her again soon!

I'm so glad y'all loved my first conversation with my friend, Micah Tyler, last summer. ME TOO! I knew we just HAD to have him back. We get to talk all about our favorite podcasts we listen to, the sports we love, and building spiritual muscles. I think y'all are going to really enjoy reading Micah's new book Walking Free (I enjoyed it so much that I wrote the foreword to it!). He's just the nicest dude, and I c...

This one is about to get up in your business. Mike Donehey, one of my favorite artists, authors, and one of my downright favorite humans, comes on the show and BRINGS THE WORD over and over. Chatting with Mike about forgiveness, peacemaking, and the name of Jesus...gracious this one is gold from start to finish (and speaking of finish... the last 10 minutes of this episode really went off the rails when we all learn about Mike'...

I am honored to have my friend, Toni Collier, join us for a conversation about pressing into healing. Toni and I always have such a fun (and loud) time together and this conversation is no different! We chat about the balance between our writing process and healing, divorce, counseling, and the importance of having a diverse community of friendship that surrounds you. Toni's organization, Broken Crayons Still Color is doing som...

You guys! I am so excited to share this conversation with my new friends, Pastor Glenn and Holly Packiam. We get to talk about celebrating the good from our last season, getting in touch with what God’s calling us to right now, and practicing rhythms of prayer, rest, renewal, relationships, and work. I think you’re going to love them and really benefit from their wisdom and experience. Be sure to check out their book, The Intention...

Oh man. What an honor to have the one and only Santa Claus back in the studio this year. We talked a bit about Santa's shell company, Dolly Parton, the naughty and nice lists, and a new game Santa invented that really got us giggling. In a TOTALLY unrelated side note...Dave Barnes is brilliant and you should check out his new album, Remembering: Greatest Hits Acoustic.

Grown ups, this conversation got a little cheeky, so maybe ...
