    Your Last Decade #4: Nick Runyon

    Your Last Decade #4: Nick Runyon

    As we enter this new decade, I thought it would be fun to talk to a few friends and reflect back on what life was like 10 years ago. In these conversations, you’ll hear guests speak about what God has done in their life, dreams, goals, things they would have differently, and things they’re most proud of. And, looking back always causes me to look forward, so we’ll also chat about dreams for the next ten years!
    Today I'm talking with Nick Runyon who, along with his wife Whitney, started The Archibald Project. Nick and I talk about his last decade which not only included quitting jobs to start the nonprofit organization, The Archibald Project, but also living in different countries and adopting three children as well. Nick and I talk about what he would have told his 25 year old self in 2010 as they faced so many life changes, and I know you'll love hearing his perspective! After hearing Nick reflect back on his last decade, two things I think you should do next are: subscribe to The Archibald Project's YouTube channel - I promise you their videos will literally ignite your soul, and check out their podcast: Around the World with The Archibald Project.

    Happy Hour #281: Nona Jones

    Happy Hour #281: Nona Jones

    My guest for The Happy Hour # 281 is Nona Jones. Nona is Founder and CEO of Nona Jones Ministries, CEO of eChurch Partners and serves as the Head of Global Faith-Based Partnerships at Facebook. She has been profiled by ESSENCE Magazine as an “Under 40 Woman to Watch," Florida Trend Magazine as one of Florida’s “30-Something All Stars," and has been recognized as an Outstanding Young Alumnus at the University of Florida. She and her husband, Tim live in Florida, and are the proud parents of Timothy, Jr. (9) and Isaac (6).
    Friends, on today's show, Nona shares her story which includes childhood sexual, physical, and emotional abuse. Nona does not describe the abuse in detail. However, I want you to be aware of the topics we discuss in case those are triggers for you, so you can decide if you need to skip this episode. What Nona endured as a child and growing up is horrific, and Nona speaks about how the trauma from the broken relationships and abuse affected her in learning what being wanted and successful truly meant. In the midst of so much darkness, I got teary hearing how God showed up for Nona through the invitation of a friend in 6th grade, and when God sustained Nona through his word. As Nona puts it, her story is marked by abuse, but her life, her identity, and her purpose are all from the redemptive work of God.

    Your Last Decade #3: Laura Tremaine

    As we enter this new decade, I thought it would be fun to talk to a few friends and reflect back on what life was like 10 years ago. In these conversations, you’ll hear guests speak about what God has done in their life, dreams, goals, things they would have differently, and things they’re most proud of. And, looking back always causes me to look forward, so we’ll also chat about dreams for the next ten years!
    On today's show, my friend Laura Tremaine joins me to talk about her last decade. Laura grew up in small town Oklahoma and moved to Los Angeles at 22, sight unseen! Laura is a writer, blogger, podcaster, and momma, and you guys, most of those things Laura dove into just as she entered this last decade. Laura shares with us how in 2010 she had recently left a career in film and television production. She was a new mom, and was struggling with feelings of being lost and lonely. Laura began her first blog, the Hollywood Housewife which opened doors to what would become her next career. I loved Laura's honesty when she talks about how it took the last decade to get where she is today - we "all want to skip the lame stuff", but we all have to take those first steps!

    Happy Hour#280: Raechel Myers

    Happy Hour#280: Raechel Myers

    My guest for The Happy Hour # 280 is Raechel Myers. Raechel is founder and CEO of She Reads Truth - an organization that, for more than 7 years, has been helping women (and men, and kids!) to be in the Word of God every day. Raechel lives outside of Nashville with her husband and two kids, and just loves the beauty, goodness, and truth of God and His world.
    My friend Raechel is a woman who loves the Word of God, and we start off the show talking about the different barriers we may see to being in the word every day and even about starting or joining a Bible study! Raechel shares with us about one of her proudest accomplishments at He Reads Truth, and the difficult road she and co-founder Amanda Bible Williams walked this past year as Amanda's son Toby was critically ill throughout 2019. Raechel shares openly how she and Amanda navigated tragedy, friendship, business, and the need for rest by walking humbly in truth and love. In the last part of the show, Raechel reminds us how so important it is to listen for the truth in a world filled with so many sound bites and messages that are almost true. You guys, I told you that Raechel is a woman who loves God's word, and I hope you're inspired to try out a plan and dig into the word every day!

    Your Last Decade #2: Colt McCoy

    As we enter this new decade, I thought it would be fun to talk to a few friends and reflect back on what life was like 10 years ago. In these conversations, you’ll hear guests speak about what God has done in their life, dreams, goals, things they would have differently, and things they’re most proud of. And, looking back always causes me to look forward, so we’ll also chat about dreams for the next ten years!
    Today my friend Colt McCoy is joining us to talk about his last decade. In 2010, he was a senior at The University of Texas and his team went undefeated and faced Alabama in the National Championship Game in Pasadena, CA at the Rose Bowl. During that game, Colt was injured in the first half and never returned. His team ended up losing the biggest game of his career so far. Colt got married to his wife Rachel, and was drafted by the NFL that same year. Over the past decade, Colt has played for 3 different NFL teams, and he and Rachel now have 3 children. We look back today on Colt’s last decade, and no matter if you are a football fan or not, you will enjoy hearing his perspective on how he has managed the mountain tops and valleys that come from playing football for a living.

    Happy Hour #279: Natalie Green

    Happy Hour #279: Natalie Green

    My guest for The Happy Hour # 279 is Natalie Green. Natalie is a connector of people and lover of Jesus.  She is the Director of Strategic Partnership & Development for Africa New Life. Rwanda is her second home as she has taken more than thirty trips to the land of a thousand hills, leading hundreds of donors and sponsors on visits to Rwanda alongside her Rwandan colleagues. Natalie is also a Senior Director of Beautycounter. Her greatest adventure, without a doubt, has been her journey to motherhood.
    On the show today, Natalie and I talk about Africa New Life: the incredible story of how it was founded, the work they're doing, and the trip to Rwanda I'm about to take with Natalie to see it all in person! I loved hearing Natalie speak about Rwanda and her heart and passion for the country and the people. Natalie shares about the need for funding to provide food for the children and how you can help (be sure to check out the links from the show!). I also got to talk with Natalie about her journey to motherhood. Natalie honestly shares about life as a single momma and each of the beautiful stories of how she became mom to her three boys.

I love Jamie’s guests - encouraging women who are walking with God, sharing their testimony, and filling my heart and mind with His messages! Jamie makes it sound like she is talking to her best friend in each episode and she asks the BEST questions!!!!! Don’t waste a second - go check out this amazing podcast!

Entertaining & Challenging

It’s hard to do both, but she does it well. Great tips & deep truths on the same show. Minus 1 star for damaging racial narratives from several guests recently. But it’s super popular in the church right mow, so I get why she does it.

Hayerick ,

Great podcast!
