E097 || Sam Russo || The Sins of Our Fathers
Despite a well-prepared prep sheet this week by Kevin, Stewart manages to wag the episode all over the studio while the guys chat with Sam Russo, Pastor at Life.Church Mansfield.
Powerful. Impactful. Noteworthy. Real and raw.
This story really has it all. Growing up in southern Louisiana in a family with an unusual story. Finding Christ and being on fire for the Church followed by a very deep, lowly valley. Moments with God that change everything. Being real with people as you struggle through seasons. The value of a REAL community. Parenting. Finding a Church home.
... it's just a conversation about life with a million stories, lessons, ideas, and growth opportunities woven all throughout the time we spent with Sam. It's not linear. It's going to hit all of you differently. But as you listen through, you're 100% money-back guaranteed to be better after listening to this episode.
E096 || Kent Rabalais || Every Hero Needs a Guide
This week the 17Twenty crew sits down with Kent Rabalais, the founder and CEO of Kent Studio, a company powered by creatives and technologists who tell redemptive stories that reveal the wonder so often hidden in our world.
Kent is often-described as Stewart's oldest friend, dating back to around 1988. Though the story that's told on this week's podcast starts with an old basketball story, it weaves through tales of self-reflection, depression, the path to identify "Who am I? What am I called to do? What are the right next steps to get there?", loss of a parent, divorce from a spouse, and the ever-weaving redemptive story of Christ.
We're so thankful we get the chance to tell these stories and provide some guidance to others through them, and this week contains fistfuls of guidance across all aspects of life.
Grab your journal and a quiet space for this one.

Buckle up for a lengthy episode. Grab your journal and your pen because there are a ton of wisdom nuggets sprinkled all throughout.
