    Episode 255: Karen Kingsbury

    Episode 255: Karen Kingsbury

    It is such an honor to have one of my favorite novelists on the podcast today! Karen Kingsbury is a #1 New York Times Bestselling author and her Baxter family of characters are many of our favorite friends that we don't really know (LOL)! Today Karen and I talk about her new novel, Truly, Madly, Deeply, her family, COVID, and a plethora of other things! She's wonderful! Enjoy!

    (As mentioned in the intro, we talk a bit about policemen and police work because the main character in her new novel is a policeman. You may want to listen to this one without your kids the first time just so that you know how you want to have the follow up conversation. While we may not all agree with every guest, I hope you'll listen along with open ears and heart.)

    Episode 254: Chris Singleton

    After I read Chris Singleton's book, Different: A Story About Loving Your Neighbor, for a Monday night #miniBFFBookClub on instagram live, I knew I wanted to have a longer conversation with him. He's an incredibly gifted speaker with a heartbreaking and hope-filled story and I think you're gonna love this conversation.

    Here is the link to Chris's Kickstarter for Your Life Matters. Don't miss out on this one!

    Episode 253: Point of Grace

    Episode 253: Point of Grace

    These are some of my very favorite ladies ever. Point of Grace is a group that has been singing in my ears for decades, but the real joy was when I got to tour with them about a decade ago. They are absolutely wonderful. You're going to love this conversation with Denise, Shelley, and Leigh. Their new book How You Live is so helpful- like coffee with three really wise older sisters. This conversation was just as comforting and fun. Love them so much.

    Episode 252: Lecrae

    Episode 252: Lecrae

    I am such a huge fan of Lecrae's music and his writing and his story. His new book I Am Restored is such an honest, deep, and painfully real take on his life that I think you'll find it inspiring and moving and a worthy read. Today's convo is special to me- I hope it will be to you, too.

    Episode 251: Sam Acho

    Y'all know I'm a huge fan of sports, so anytime an athlete comes on the show, I AM A HAPPY ANNIE. Sam Acho is today's guest and his story of faith and family and football is one I will not soon forget. Make sure you grab a copy of his new book Let The World See You. It's a powerful read and you will hear why in today's conversation.

    I did not mean to make us new besties BUT IT HAPPENED, Y'ALL. I have been a long time fan of Maddie & Tae's music, but now I am just a superfan of who they are as women and artists and creatives and business owners.
