    90: Eric Peterson | Lifelong Wisdom

    90: Eric Peterson | Lifelong Wisdom

    When we think of life well lived, it's hard to come up with a better example than Eugene and Jan Peterson. Back in the Spring of 2019, we had the incredible honor of sitting down with the delightful Jan, beloved wife of Eugene Peterson, for what none of us realized would be her very last interview. Shortly after our time together, Jan went home to be with Jesus in May of 2019. Jan’s story of love, faith, and long obedience in the same direction remains one of our most listened to and commented on episodes to date.



     



    On today’s episode we had the tremendous honor of chatting with Eugene and Jan’s son, Eric Peterson. Eric shares what it was like growing up in the Peterson home, his journey into the calling of local church ministry, and the wisdom from his dad Eugene through the form of letters that impacted him as a young pastor.



    As always, we hope this conversation will bless you as much as it did us! Listen in!

    89 : Nicole Zasowski | Let Go and Find Freedom

    On today’s episode we’re talking with writer, speaker, & marriage and family therapist, Nicole Zasowski about letting go of what we think we want to find what will truly set us free.  Nicole shares her journey of moving across the country from CA to Conneticut, and finding that settling into her new normal took a little longer than she would have hoped.  Having just experienced  a big move ourselves, this message really spoke to us personally, and we are so grateful for this conversation!



    Nicole shares with us the power of naming what we fear losing most, how to identify the behaviors that are holding us back, and how to move forward in the freedom God has for us!



    Guys, we hope this conversation will bless you as much as it did us! Listen in!

They Live It Well

This podcast is like a hug that you didn't know you needed. It's like a cup of coffee that you've slowed down enough to taste. It's like meeting a couple on vacation that you liked so much, you exchange information, form a friendship and plan a vacation together in the future. It's professional but not a production. It's insightful but not academic. It's transparent but not dramatic. It's just a pleasurable and powerful way to spend your time. I mean the mission is in their mantra: you only have one life to live, live it well. Who doesn't want to do that?

Wisdom for the journey

I love this podcast! I know when I listen each week, I’ll be coming away from it encouraged and redirected toward how to live my best life well. In a world full of noise, this one cuts to the chase and gives me information I can actually use to live my life on purpose.
