    Hannah Brencher (Author + Speaker + Mental Health Advocate)

    Author and TED speaker Hannah Brencher joins me to discuss truth vs. feelings, how to set sustainable goals, listening to the Holy Spirit, reexamining our view of “productivity,” and what she’s learned on her journey to 1,000 phone-free hours (!!).

    Hannah shares about a season when she battled severe depression, and how shifting her mindset and writing out truths gave her a new strength. This journey inspired her latest book, #FightingForward, which is a “nitty-gritty guide to beating the lies that hold you back.”

    Kat Conner Sterling (Netflix’s “A Week Away”)

    Welcome back! To kick off a new season of the show, I interview Kat Conner Sterling, who plays “Presley” in the Netflix movie musical “A Week Away.” We talk about what it’s like to film a movie, facing fears, and why she loves playing the "classic quirky girl."


     


    Kat shares behind-the-scenes stories about working with Bailee Madison, Kevin Quinn, Sherri Shepherd, and David Koechner, as well as her experience connecting with #AWeekAway fans since the movie's release.


     


    We also couldn’t help reminiscing about Samford University, where Kat and I met, and of course we had to mention Step Sing! (IYKYK 😉.) Follow Kat on social media, and stream “A Week Away” on Netflix!

    Episode 18 – #AskDad (My Dad, Don Sinclair)

    Episode 18 – #AskDad (My Dad, Don Sinclair)

    Happy Father’s Day! On this episode, I welcome my very own dad, Don Sinclair 💙. With 30 years in banking, Dad gives excellent advice on listener-submitted questions about personal finance, career moves and all things #adulting. Perhaps my part of the conversation is when Dad shares about a difficult time in his career and how God gave him hope and deliverance.⠀





    Dad’s not the only Sinclair to appear on this episode––you’ll hear surprise guest appearances from our beloved Angie (see episodes 2 and 13), and my brother, Andrew, who just graduated from Auburn University with a degree in forestry.
