    Ep. 100 - Chelsea Meyer & Ryan Wilkins

    Ep. 100 - Chelsea Meyer & Ryan Wilkins

    Guest Info/BIo:
    We’re back! This episode should have been out a couple of weeks ago but despite sheltering in place, working from home, having all of my groceries delivered, and only having contact with my ex-wife and daughter - I (John) still managed to get Covid. Fortunately I was able to recover at home and didn’t need to go to the hospital, but it took me out of commission for a few weeks. Be careful out there! Anyway, here is part 2 of the Divorce Series. This episode means a lot to me because I was able to talk to two of my friends about their first-hand experiences with divorce. The first half of this episode is a conversation with Chelsea Meyer who just got remarried recently and is now a clinical mental health counselor. The second half of the episode is with Ryan Wilkins the co-owner/co-founder of Olentangy River Brewing and the Senior Director, Communications & Facilities at the Ronald McDonald House. I pray that for those of you who need it that this is helpful.

    Sunday Sermon Series: The Struggle is Real

    Sunday Sermon Series: The Struggle is Real

    Thanks for joining us for our special Sunday Sermon Series. This is the second in a series of sermons we recorded a few years ago that would thought we’d share now as we all try to navigate through the age of the Corona Virus. This week’s selection is a sermon Adam preached several years ago at LIFE Church in Bexley, Ohio. It’s one of my favorites and I know that you’ll love it too. We hope you’re all staying safe out there. All the love from us to all of you.

BuzKl ,

Thanks

My daughter introduced me to this podcast several years ago and I have listened to every episode at least once. Amazing guests you have had on the show and I look forward to more. I do miss the repartee between John and Adam, but appreciate that life moves on. Blessings!

Love this show

I was incredibly and pleasantly surprised at how deep the conversations are on this show. I’ve gained new perspective and have read amazing books as a result.

NightmareSociety ,

Just what I’ve been searching for

Keep up the great work guys, I haven’t listened to every single episode but I’m working on it, haven’t heard one I haven’t gotten something from. It’s a relief and comfort to hear someone else say what I’ve been feeling and thinking and wrestling with for so long, many thanks.
