Life spills out. We start the day filling our cups: our morning coffee, our kids’ milk, a bottle of water. Enough to keep us going. We might end the day with a glass of wine and know our cup is full with memories, thanksgivings, regrets, or wishes for a do-over. The rhythm of emptying and filling, being poured out and feeling so full you can barely hold it all in, happens in the living of each day. Spilled out, Filled up. Let’s talk about what fills your cup.

Like a Coffee Date with a Friend...in the Car
I'm biased because I love Nikki, who is one of my dearest friends. But even if I didn't know her, I feel that I would come to know her and Erin through this wonderful podcast. Listening is like sitting down with these two deep-thinking, intelligent, bold, persistent women over a cup of coffee (or a glass of wine...or bourbon...or even some ice water--whatever fills your cup!) and being unafraid to address what's on all our minds. No topic is taboo. No current event is too polarizing. No hot-button issue is too sensitive. Even so, they approach the topics with honesty, curiosity, openness, genuine compassion, and lots of humor. It's a faith-based podcast with particular attention to how two women raised in Southern Baptist culture are surviving and thriving in spite of that upbringing. But they also speak with a spirit of gratitude for the beautiful parts of that same culture--parts that they are determined to bring to light. I recommend this for anyone who needs to sit down and talk with a friend about what it means to be a person of faith in this time and in this place, even if you're like me and have to listen while you're driving all over town!
