Here are some interviews of everyday Christians, talking about their life, their struggles and their faith in God (of the Bible). Listen to find out why the heck these people believe in and live for God.
Ep. 155- Sandi Brown and Michelle Caulk
This interview is with Sandi Brown and Michelle Caulk. Listen as we talk about the journey to writing their book, "Healing Out Loud: How to Embrace God’s Love When You Don’t Like Yourself". In this unique look at a one-year journey through counseling told from both sides of the couch, Sandi Brown—the founder of St. Louis’s largest Christian radio ministry, JOY FM—and her counselor, Dr. Michelle Caulk, walk through Sandi’s therapy journey, answering the question, “What do I do when I know God loves me, but I don’t like myself?”
This interview is with Chris Morphew. Listen as we have a discussion on Marvel, Animorphs, becoming a writer, writing for Zac Power, becoming a chaplain, writing "Best News Ever, a 100-day guide to the Gospel of Mark", and "The Big Questions", a series of short books answer tough questions about life and faith.
This interview is with Craig Josling. Listen as we talk about model planes, Dr Who, becoming a Christian, dealing with contentment, starting City Bible Forum and writing "40 Rockets: Encouragement and tips for turbocharging your evangelism at work".
This interview is with Jess Connolly. I was invited to join a podcast panel for Jess Connolly and her new book, "Breaking Free from Body Shame: Dare to Reclaim What God Has Named Good".She shares so much wisdom on her own journey to calling her body "good".
Dr Matthew Sleeth
This interview is with Dr Matthew Sleeth. Listen as we talk a little about his journey into medicine, some funny ER stories and then we delve into the serious issue of suicide and how it compelled him to write his book, "Hope Always: How to Be a Force For Life in a Culture of Suicide".
This interview is with Sandra McCracken. Listen as we talk about her journey into music, the enneagram, laments, song writing, Rain for Roots, her new album "Patient Kingdom" and her new book "Send out your Light".
I really enjoy listening to Samantha interview people. It seems to me she is good at getting people to open up with their story. I love the “Why the heck do you believe in Jesus?” and I love hearing each person’s reason. I almost can’t believe there are so many answers but of course there would be because our God is so amazing and diverse and oh so thankfully not limited by our perception of Him.
Normal Christian asks another normal Christian questions of faith and life
Samantha Freestone is a fun, engaging host to this podcast about asking normal Christian people questions. A lot of the time Sam meets the guest 15 minutes before recording, as she admits on the podcast. She often goes through their origins and upbringing, dwelling on noticeable points along the way, as well as focusing on their current work and faith journey. She always ends the conversation with the sincere question, "Why the heck do you believe in Jesus?"
I always benefit from listening to the engagement Sam has with the guests. I can learn a lot about people through them sharing their stories. This podcast makes even fairly high profile Christians to seem more approachable and normal. I'm thankful for that. I'd recommend this podcast for everyone.
Got onto this podcast from listening to the open doors one. Great testimonies and stories of life and faith. It's a great listen and a great en encouragement!
