    The most important things to talk about with your son with Jeremie and Will Kubicek

    The most important things to talk about with your son with Jeremie and Will Kubicek

    I loved having this father/son duo on the podcast to talk about the relationship between father and son. Dads want to have a great relationship with their sons, but sometimes they don’t know where to start. 
     
    Today I talk with this son and dad about:
     
    What important conversations to talk about? What are some important rites of passage? What are the most important things that keep a father and son relationship strong? It’s never too late to build or repair a relationship.  
    This is so important to the Kubiceks that they came up with their own company called
     6 summers, a resource to help dads be intentional with their sons.

    How to live an integrated life with Juli Bevere

    How to live an integrated life with Juli Bevere

    I loved this conversation with Juli Bevere, a founder of Sons and Daughters, led by John and Lisa Bevere’s sons and their wives. Sons and Daughters is an initiative that helps young adults discover the adventure, freedom, and purpose found in their Creator. What began in 2017 as a few YouTube videos for millennials has grown into a collection of studies, podcasts, events, and a global community with Ambassadors in over forty countries. 
     
    I talk with Juli about living an integrated life, as a follower of Jesus, mother, daughter, wife. What does it look like to integrate everything? We talk about identity and how our lives change when we find our identity first in Christ before anything else.

    Building community with one simple text with Kristi Hayes

    Building community with one simple text with Kristi Hayes

    Have you ever felt like you didn’t fit in? Have you ever moved into a new place and craved community but didn’t know how to find it?
    This was me a few years ago. We moved to a new state the week COVID shut down the world. SPOILER ALERT: Not a great time to build community or new friendships.
    We lived in a new neighborhood bustling with new families, but I didn’t really feel connected to anyone. It seemed as if everyone had their own group, and no one had kids our age so it didn’t automatically match up. But what I learned is if I really wanted community I needed to ask for it. So I did….
    Listen to this episode today to see how one simple text led to a community that has been lifegiving.
