    Episode 41: Jonathan Meyer

    Welcome back to Enjoying the Journey podcast! It’s been a while and we’re super excited to start another season! Our first episode is with our friend, Jonathan Meyer, Student Ministries Pastor at Grace Church. We’ve been partnering with Jonathan for many years at the Ignite Youth Leadership conference in Des Moines and we can’t wait for you to hear some of his story. Rob and Jonathan talk about their faith, their passion for discipleship, what’s changed in student ministries over the years, and how they’ve learned to help students keep their faith even after they’ve entered the “real world.” We hope you enjoy this episode of Enjoying the Journey. Thank you for listening!

    “Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see…. And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.” Hebrews 11:1 & 6

    Episode 40: Lydia Miller

    On this episode of Enjoying the Journey, we get to chat with Lydia Miller, Pastor of Creative Arts at Sunnybrook Church in Sioux City. Lydia grew up as a pastor's kid, loves the Church, loves God, loves His people, and is a pastor at the church she grew up at. With all the stories of pastor's kids leaving the church and/or their faith, Lydia's journey is a breath of fresh air and so encouraging! Lydia is a joy to talk to and we can't wait for you to listen!

    Lydia has been on staff at Sunnybrook Church for 5 years. After moving to Sioux City with her family in 8th grade, she grew up through Sunnybrook’s student ministries. She graduated from the University of Northern Iowa and began her teaching career at Waukee Middle School. After four years of teaching, she felt God calling her back to Sioux City, to Sunnybrook, and into ministry, and she began working in student ministry. Now, Lydia oversees all of Family Ministry, as well as the Creative Arts Ministry. She and her husband Trent have two young boys.

    Episode 39: Heather Kittelson

    Welcome back friends!😊 Spring is coming soon, but, while we wait, we're so excited to share this week’s episode of Enjoying the Journey with you! On today's podcast, we got to sit down with our friend, Heather Kittelson for a sweet IN-PERSON interview! Heather is a wife, mom of four, the Foundation Director for Volunteers Of America, and the Founder/Owner of Redemption Artistry. We're tackling some real world issues today, as Heather shares her story about overcoming abuse and alcoholism, and how God redeemed and saved her life (literally)! These things aren't always easy to bring up with the people around you, but they are things that more of us deal with than we realize, and we're so blessed that Heather is willing to be so transparent about them, as we should all try to be! Transparency creates real relationships, as we should want with each other, and with Jesus, who already sees and loves us for who we are. You are AWESOME, thanks so much for listening!!!

    Episode 37: Nancy Lindgren

    Episode 37: Nancy Lindgren

    We are so delighted to share this week's episode with you, as Rob sits down with our friend, Nancy Lindgren. Nancy is the Founder and CEO of MORE Mentoring, and is passionate about walking alongside others and pointing them to Jesus, something she’s done faithfully for over 20 years, and has been featured on MOPS and Channel Mom! Listen in to hear Rob and Nancy (and another special guest!) talk about life, and the benefits of having a mentor in your life, or just someone that you trust and can be completely transparent and honest with. It is so rewarding to open yourself up, and to humbly learn from the experiences of those around you, and it's equally important to share your experiences with others. Letting people share their gifts with you may also be more beneficial to THEM than you realize. Remember in Mark: 12, 41-44, where the widow brings her last coins as offering to the temple, and Jesus points out that she is giving more than anyone else? Letting people give their advice or gifts to you, no matter how small, might mean the world to them! Love each other, friends, we love you!!!😊
