The Happy Hour Podcast is hosted by Jamie Ivey, and each week she brings a guest to the show. During the happy hour they will discuss anything and everything just as if you were around the table with your own girlfriends. Jamie loves to connect with women and encourage them as they journey through life. These conversations will make you laugh and cry all in one. The Happy Hour will be something you look forward to each week. You will be encouraged as you listen to other women talk about the simplest things in life to the grandest. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the conversation!
HH #526 Jesus and Hospitality with Amy Hannon
“You don’t have to be gifted with hospitality because it’s a command given to us by God” -Amy Hannon
Ouch! Amy Hannon may have convicted a lot of us with that statement. I’m not sure about you but my hospitality is great when my clothes are folded and put away, my dishes are washed and there are no stacks all over my house. On this episode, Amy reminds me that everyday hospitality is not photogenic and that inviting people into my messy spaces creates the common ground we’re all dying to find.
HH #525: Supporting Others and Suicide Prevention with Kay Warren
“The church needs to be the safest place on earth where you don't have to whisper about anything. It is the place God intended for you to find life, love, relationship, comfort, and strength.” - Kay Warren
I want to provide a warning that for the majority of this episode, our conversation is centered around mental health and suicide.
Today my guest is author, speaker, advocate, and pastor’s wife, Kay Warren. We talk about mental health, suicide, our Enneagram numbers, and the church she and her husband Rick founded and pastored for more than 42 years. Yes, you read that right – four decades serving at the same church!
HH #524 The Invisible Girl Project with Jill McElya
“We’ve been fighting to save girls’ lives and end gendercide in India” - Jill McElya
Today’s show is not like many others that I have recorded so I want to warn you before pressing play that there are some triggering stories. My guest on today’s episode is Jill McElya, President and Co-Founder of the Invisible Girl Project. IGP rescues girls in India from the danger of female gendercide, advocates for their healing, and empowers them through education.
HH 523 Help Is Here with Max Lucado
“The Holy Spirit is not promoting self but He is promoting Christ so that we may know Him” -Max Lucado
HH 522: Bringing Our Faith To the Field with Kristi Malzahn
“Sometimes he’s down and I’m up but I think it’s more important than ever that we stay focused and keep perspective about things being idols in our life” - Kristi Malzahn
If you know me you know one of my favorite things is college football. My guest on today’s show is Kristi Malzahn. Kristi is the wife of head coach, Gus Malzahn at The University of Central Florida. Whether you like football, love football, or even if football is not your thing, you will love this episode.

Jamie, you have grown in experience and improved exponentially. Thank you for your hard work and ministry! I look forward to every episode and jumped for joy when you added a 2nd weekly show!
