    AFD in NYC Episode 7: Seize the Day

    The time has come. It's the final episode of AFD in NYC and I'm officially headed back to Nashville! I’m going to go ahead and spoil the ending here: I don’t have a bow to tie on this experience. I don’t have my top ten takeaways. I don’t have big announcements or proclamations. But I do have a story to tell you...

    I'd love for you to share your questions or thoughts for more episodes like this with me over on @thatsoundsfunpodcast. See you back here tomorrow on That Sounds Fun Podcast!

    The Beauty and Complexity of Israel with Kristi McLelland - Episode 507

    The Beauty and Complexity of Israel with Kristi McLelland - Episode 507

    Oh friends, you know I love when we get to talk about the Gospels and today is one of those days! Kristi McLelland is one of my favorite Bible teachers. She’s also an incredible resource when it comes to learning more about Israel. I think you're really going to enjoy this conversation. We chat all about reading the Bible through a Western lens, pursuing a calling while taking care of our family and community, and what's going on in Israel right now. Kristi's newest book Rediscovering Israel is incredible. I've never seen a book that better reflects the experience of Israel and helps you do deeper research into it. I love it SO much and I think you're going to love it too.

    Building A Home that Heals You with Anh Lin - Episode 505

    Y’all, you’re going to love my new friend, Anh Lin! I need you to head over to her social media and go see her beautiful DIY styling and design videos. They are so fun! And listen, if decorating for Christmas is on your to-do list this weekend, maybe her videos and this conversation will inspire some ideas! Anh is also the author of Forever Home which is all about Anh's story and experiencing the abundant life that God designed just for you. It's really beautifully written and I think y'all will really enjoy the read.

    The Kindness of Jesus with Lisa Harper - Episode 504

    The Kindness of Jesus with Lisa Harper - Episode 504

    I know y’all love my dear friend, Lisa Harper, and CAN YOU BELIEVE she hasn’t been on the show since 2017?! Y’all. We were clearly long overdue to catch up over microphones and talk about my favorite subject. Jesus. What are some of the characteristics of Jesus? Can we love our Bibles TOO much? And does God really call us to contentment? Lisa's newest devotional: Jesus: A Scandously Devoted, Conspicuously Uncool, Super Transparent Homage to Who Our Savior Is and How Much He Loves Us is beautiful and so inspiring! Did I mention that it would be the perfect gift for someone this Christmas? I'm just saying.

Devin and Hunter Cordle episode

Hi Annie!!!

1) I love your podcast and how you are shining your light for Jesus through your guests and attitude—I just love you!!

2) I LOVE that you had Hunter and Devin on your podcast—they’re my favorite influencers to watch and they just love Jesus so much and are inspiring many people and it’s beautiful to watch.

I hope in the future maybe they can be added to the That Sounds Fun network of podcasts 😉😉😉

Life changing question!

I love that question- how can I pray for you today!!!? I’m going to use it with all my loved ones! Thank you!

Jana Kramer

I’m not willing to give a lower review since I love this podcast overall, but Annie, this episode was very confusing for me to listen to. On one hand, when Jana asked, you said God has a very specific reason for sex in marriage, so thank you for that. But you go on to condone the life that she’s living in sin. God gives good gifts like a baby in spite of our sin. But it’s never his will for us to sin. I’m worried how listeners will receive this who are on the fence about having sex outside of marriage. I think the best thing would’ve been to befriend Jana and have this conversation just the two of you and not have a conversation on your podcast about this topic that could lead people into sin. What would’ve won me over would’ve been you saying something in the intro or outtro about not condoning sin, though you love Jana. I’m disappointed.
