Friendship & Poetry with Audrey Elledge and Elizabeth Moore - Episode 865
I love getting to have conversations with friends and fellow writers who inspire me. Audrey Elledge and Elizabeth Moore are such a gift! I've loved their book Liturgies for Hope and their brand new book Liturgies for Wholeness is just as beautiful. We talked all about the origin of their friendship, how they ended up in New York, and writing in communion with God. I adore them and I think you're going to love this conversation! . . . . .

Feeling Worthy with Jamie Kern Lima - Episode 864
You know what I LOVE? Getting to talk to my up-close friends on the show! I genuinely could not be more grateful for my dear friend Jamie Kern Lima. Her brand new book, Worthy is so important and so good! This conversation is all about feeling like we're not enough, or feeling stuck, and ultimately, the difference between self-confidence and self-worth. Jamie is one of the most generous and thoughtful people that I know and I could just not be more proud of her. . . . . . Want to watch this episode on YouTube?

God's Mercy with Savannah Guthrie - Episode 863
Y'all already know my new friend Savannah Guthrie, co-anchor of the TODAY show (umm yes. THAT Savannah Guthrie!!), and now author of her first non-fiction book Mostly What God Does. You guys. I read this book SO FAST. It's SO GOOD! I'm just impressed with her honesty and venerability. Savannah and I sat down in New York and had the best conversation all about her journey with writing this book, seasons in our relationship with God, and talking opening about Jesus in our day-to-day lives. I felt so honored to get to know Savannah and I know y'all are going to love her. . . . . . Want to watch this episode on YouTube?

Culture, Sex, and Confession with Tim Ross - Episode 862
BUCKLE UP Y'ALL. I think you're going to love this conversation with Tim Ross. We talk about everything! Contentment, sexuality, seeking purpose over understanding, and living a life for Jesus. I really appreciate Tim, the work that he does, and his honesty. His new book Welcome to the Basement is a great read and would make a great gift for a friend! I enjoyed this conversation a ton and I can't wait to have Tim back on the show! And just a note for those of you that may have miniBFFs listening along, we also get into some conversation regarding singleness, sex, and dating that is probably best for grownup ears and not for miniBFF ears, so just keep that in mind. . . . . . Did you hear the big news?! On Sunday, August 11, we’re throwing a 10th Anniversary That Sounds Fun live celebration at the Ryman Auditorium here in Nashville.

Lent & Fasting with Dr. Darren Whitehead - Episode 861
As y'all know, I LOVE the Christian calendar! Since we kick off Lent in just two days, I wanted one of my favorite pastors, Dr. Darren Whitehead, to come on the show and teach us about what it looks like to sacrifice, celebrate, and fast during this season. We talk allll about the power of fasting, distraction versus utility, and what it would look like to embrace a digital fast. I think this conversation is so helpful and important! Darren's new book The Digital Fast is an amazing resource for you, your family, and your community. You can find more of Darren's resources at thedigitalfast.com. Make sure you head over to our Patreon community Single Purpose League (and join in if you haven't yet!) to hear the rest of mine and Darren's conversation about doing a technology fast and creating healthy boundaries with our phones when you're single. . . . . .

Persistent Obedience with Nick Connolly - Episode 860
One of my favorite pastors, Nick Connolly is on the podcast today to teach us the difference between persistence, resilience, and perseverance, how to endure in ministry, and when to say no. Nick’s brand new book Don't Give Up Just Yet is so honest and helpful! I’m just so grateful for Nick as he teaches us what can happen when we wait for the abundant promises God has for us. . . . . .

Are we going to let differences tear us apart or can we love each other through it? WHAT A QUESTION!

Singleness in the Church with David Platt - Episode 857

Singleness in the Church with David Platt - Episode 857
Today is an exciting day over here at AFD Inc! Because we’re launching Single Purpose League TODAY (make sure to click the link to find out more!!), we wanted to have a real conversation about being single in the church… because…well… it’s a whole thing. There’s a lot of beauty to it, but there’s also a lot of hurt, misunderstanding, and disappointment, so we invited my long-time friend, Pastor David Platt back on pod, so we could have an honest conversation about how singles can thrive in their church, what conversations we could be having with our pastors and church leaders (and vice versa) and how we help single people not feel invisible. If you're single, be sure to check out Single Purpose League over on Patreon and become a member so you can listen to more of this conversation. Today’s episode was a WOWIE ZOWIE and I’m so thankful for David’s insight and honesty. Are we now a Mike Kelsey fan pod?! DUH.

Discovering Your Highest Emotional Need with Mike Foster - Episode 852
Y'all. God has got a theme for us and we're right in the middle of it. Today, we're talking with my friend Mike Foster about our emotional health. Mike's latest book, Seven Primal Questions, is a framework to help you find emotional freedom and healing. I think this is SUCH a great conversation to really help us step into 2024 well and give us some ways that we can keep growing. Gosh, I'm so grateful for what Mike is teaching us today.

Participating in the Season God has for You with Banning Liebscher - Episode 851
Today on the show I get to talk to my friend and one of my favorite pastors, Banning Liebscher. Banning has some important things to say about where we should go in 2024, particularly in our spiritual lives. And I am here.for.it! We talked about thankfulness putting us in a position of abundance, having hunger and expectancy for the Lord, and asking God what should this year be shaped like. LET'S GOOOO! I'm so thankful for Banning and the wisdom he brings to this conversation. Welcome to 2024 y'all! . . . . . Want to watch this episode on YouTube?
