    Episode 189: Parenting in Truth & Rest with Chris & Hillary Scott Tyrrell (from Lady A)

    We are over the MOON about our first podcast episode of our Music City Series this summer with…(drumroll please) HILLARY and CHRIS TYRRELL!!! Y’all—we laughed and cried and had the best conversation with these two thoughtful, amazing, huge-hearted human beings. You know @hillaryscottla from one of our favorite bands of all time @ladya or from her music with her family, The Scott Family, which we love as well. But if you don’t yet know her brilliant and also insanely talented husband Chris Tyrell, you are in for a treat! We can’t wait for you to get to hear this conversation about parenting, finding hope in this world, tacos (of course) and make sure to listen for Sissy Goff’s most embarrassing moment!

    Music City Summer Series 2024

    Music City Summer Series 2024

    It’s finally HERE!!!! Season 2 of the Music City Series! Y’all! We can’t even believe the talent and the wisdom and the hope and brilliance of every single guest. Between the artists, songwriters and musicians we interviewed, there were more Grammy’s, Dove Awards and number one hit singles than we could count. We had conversations about songwriting with Taylor Swift, touring with Adele, performing for the President, meeting Dolly Parton, being complimented by Paul McCartney, sharing the stage with CeCe Winans, selling out arenas, and swimming in Waylon Jenning’s swimming pool, just to name a few.
    We talked about the joys and challenges of parenting kids in different stages, introducing kids to music, and folding worship in to the family. You don’t want to miss these fantastic conversations with fascinating friends. We’d love to know who you’re hoping (or guessing from the description) might be a part of Season 2!

    Episode 188: Vulnerability in Marriage and Parenting with Dave and Ann Wilson

    It is a true gift every time our lives get to intersect with the delight that are Dave and Ann Wilson. We’ve had the privilege of being on their podcast through Family Life Today several times, but FINALLY got to have them on ours AND bring them to the Daystar house! We love these two people—their vulnerability, transparency, humor and the hope they bring to us all. Thank you, Jesus, for the difference Dave and Ann are making in this world and to us. We can’t wait for you to listen—we know you’ll love them just as much as we do!

    Episode 187: Parenting and Grandparenting with Love and Laughter with Anne Lamott

    Episode 187: Parenting and Grandparenting with Love and Laughter with Anne Lamott

    We wish there had been a camera in the car when our amazing friend and publicist Jana Muntsinger emailed to tell us Anne Lamott had said yes to being on our podcast. We lost our minds—literally, you guys. We were both screaming, “Are you kidding me?!” over and over in the car! We still can’t believe it. If you’re unfamiliar with Anne Lamott, buckle up—she is one feisty, wise, brilliant, spitfire of a human being. She might be a new (a little out of the box) voice for you, but she’s one we value deeply for the grace and humanity she brings to this world. She is a voice we quote often—in fact, if you listen to the first few minutes, we both read so many of our favorites. It is a joy to share with you one of our heroes in so many ways.

Must listen to podcast!

Updated review- I still love the content that Sissy and David put out week after week. I’ve been listening for years, from my first to now fourth baby. However, there are so many more ads since joining the That Sounds Fun network of podcasts. That’s been a real bummer to the otherwise top notch podcast.

Lots of great guests and info

My only reason for knocking off a star is the ads have gotten excessive.

Landyn Hutchinson doesn’t know anything about parenting!

Always an insightful podcast— although extremely disappointed to see you had Landyn Hutchinson as a guest. If you even take a peek at her social media you will see she should NOT be handing out parenting advice. Her whole life is fake and she just wants so desperately to be famous. This guest booking really makes me question listening going forward.
