ep. 211: Living Life With a Scripture-Filled Heart with Dr. Brian Dixon
In college, Brian Dixon started out heading down the “music-and-theatre” road, until a life-changing car accident redirected him. After being told he may never have kids (he now has 3) and not walking again (he’s completed numerous marathons and a number of triathlons), he views his life as a picture of God’s redemption and grace. Dr. Dixon ended up training to be a teacher, where he met Julie, now his wife of 20 years. They are raising their children in Charlotte, NC to be entrepreneurial, kingdom-minded humans.
Living life as a believer means we need to have God’s Word in our hearts. But how does one DO that in these busy times? As Brian points out, we need to get into the Word every single day. It most likely means that we will have to sacrifice something; and, like Jesus, we may have to get up early and “get away.” Brian starts every day reading, praying, listening to the Abide app…doing whatever it takes to get God’s Word into his heart.
Listen in for encouragement to keep on keepin on, friend!

ep. 209: When You Get a Wake Up Call with Carmen James
Busy raising three children, working hard to open her own brinks-and-mortar business in her hometown, managing her third marriage, totally burning the candle at both ends…
Complete chaos! Can you relate to any of this?
My guest today, Carmen James, was so busy working hard at trying to achieve success according to the world’s definition, that she forgot a crucial piece enabling her to enjoy the fruits of her labor: self-care and stress management.
Now can you relate?
But a dramatic and unexpected cancer diagnosis was followed by a three-month-long wait to see a specialist, a time which Carmen described as “the scariest, darkest, most horrific experience ever,” proved life-changing in ways she never expected.

ep. 207: How to Flourish in Between the Complicated & Hard with Melinda Patrick
In 2007, Melinda Patrick found herself going through a divorce that she didn’t want. Thinking she had done #allthethings a good, Christian wife was “supposed” to do, she realized that this was an example of mankind’s free will being exercised. The day after her family (they had a 13 yr-old and 16-yr-old) moved into the home she and her husband had designed and built themselves, he walked out.
Reeling, she remembers thinking “I don’t understand.”
Melinda’s story is both heartbreaking and mesmerizing; alternately filled with pain and promise. Throughout the process of her divorce, one piece of Scripture was especially life-giving:
"The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life." Job 33:4

This is a podcast I listen to weekly. It’s always uplifting. I love hearing the stories of what people have been through and where it has brought them. Thanks Wren for always lifting my spirits.
The podcast for every Christian woman
Wren’s podcast was the first one I ever listened to and since then I’ve started listening to many more. And still I come back to this one as a personal favorite. She’s like a reliable go-to girlfriend who knows everything and everyone in Christendom. Happy to have this podcast.
Wren is so calming!
I listen to Wren whenever I need some positivity & encouragement. She has such a wonderful speaking voice that I could (& should)?listen to every single day. Whenever I play one of her episodes, I immediately feel more encouraged, supported, and filled by God. I love the diversity in her episodes and the wide variety of guests.
