    Episode 291: Dr. Matthew Sleeth + Hope Always

    Episode 291: Dr. Matthew Sleeth + Hope Always

    Dear friends, today we have a conversation about suicide. I want you to know that up front, so that you can listen without miniBFFs and know going into it what the topic is. One of your (and my!) favorite guests, Dr. Matthew Sleeth, is back today talking all about his new book Hope Always (it releases May 4, but go ahead and order today so it shows up for you next week!) and about how to be a force for life in a culture of suicide. This is an important conversation and one I think it very hope-filled. Listen and share it widely- let's be a part of saving lives!

    Episode 289: Douglas McKelvey + Every Moment Holy

    Many of us have found Every Moment Holy to be a profoundly helpful resource in our own lives. Volume 2 has just released with a focus on grief and today the author, Douglas McKelvey, joins us for an honest conversation about the power of written down prayers, the need for prayer in grief, and how to create something that will outlast you. This is a beautiful conversation that I think you will love.

    Episode 288: Harry Connick Jr.

    Episode 288: Harry Connick Jr.

    When word got around that Harry Connick Jr had a faith-inspired album releasing, my ears and my interviewing heart both perked up. What an absolute HONOR to have him on the podcast, to talk about his new about Alone In My Faith, and to learn so much about his faith and family and now I for sure want to get his dad on the podcast! (You'll hear why and totally agree with me!) Can't wait to hear your thoughts!
