    Before Erin Ullmer had met her husband Steve, before her new life and new family, there was the moment on the bridge. The moment where everything changed.

In this first part of their conversation with Davey, Erin and Steve share the beginning of her story and how God met her in a place of unimaginable pain.

    Episode 123 - Cory and Michelle Joy

    ADDICTION SERIES PART FOUR
     
    Cory and Michelle Joy knew their oldest son Caleb had some struggles. They’d caught him in smaller things like drinking and smoking weed, but it was all too easy to dismiss this as childish foolishness. Surely he’d grow up and move past these things, right? By the time they realized the extent of the grip that addiction had on Caleb’s life, it was too late. Despite their best efforts to support him, Caleb’s addiction would eventually claim his life. Still fresh in their grief, Cory and Michelle sit down with Davey to finish off the addiction series by discussing what they’ve learned by walking through this painful valley and how they’re doing everything possible to keep others from going down the same path Caleb did.

    Episode 122 - Allen Cothran

    ADDICTION SERIES PART THREE
     
    Even as a child, Allen Cothran could tell his experience with drugs wasn’t like everyone else’s when he was quite literally intoxicated with the feeling he got from simple cold medicine. As an adult, Allen found himself pulled into using pills to medicate away emotional pain, and the problem only grew from there. Stuck in the tension between his family and ministry and an uncontrollable addiction, it wasn’t until after a near-fatal overdose that Allen woke up to the struggle he was in. Allen sits down with Davey to share how he got clean and now helps others do the same in this continuation of our series on addiction.

    Episode 120 - Seth Haines

    ADDICTION SERIES PART ONE
     
    Seth Haines looked like he had it all together. As a lawyer and a writer, no one would have suspected that he had a problem. Sure he drank pretty regularly, but who doesn’t? It didn’t seem to be affecting his home life or his career. He’d never gotten a DUI, never been abusive, never seen alcohol hurt his work. On the outside, it looked like Seth had it all under control, but on the inside he knew he had a problem. Drinking had become his escape from the world, and before he knew it he couldn’t get by without that escape. To kick off our addiction series, Seth shares some of his story with Davey about how he realized he had a problem and what he’s learned about himself and God in coming clean.

    Episode 119 - Esther Fleece Allen

    Esther Fleece Allen’s childhood wasn’t easy. Having dealt with an abusive father and being abandoned by her mother before age 13, Esther went through more hardship as a child than many of us may hope to face in our lives. Her trials didn’t stop there though. When the now-adult Esther’s father showed up at her home after years of absence and began stalking her, it became clear that her trauma would not be confined to just childhood. Esther sits down with Davey to share some of her story and what she’s learned about what it means to be “saved” by God.

Thank you

Thank you for creating this podcast. I am 27 years old, and my husband unexpectedly went to heaven 5 months ago due to complications of a lung defect he was born with. I have listened to the podcasts with Samantha Smith, and am on episode 2 of the Brookers. Gaining insight, courage, strength, and just a sense of “I’m not alone in experiencing this”.

Thank you

Thank you so much for this podcast. Episode #82 in particular spoke to my heart so profoundly and brought me to tears. It ministered to me, as my husband and I are going through a challenging season in our marriage. I truly appreciate the transparency and vulnerability of the guests who are on this show, teaching the listeners how to live, learn and lead through various painful circumstances. Thank you Davey, and your entire crew!!

A Journey of Healing

I can’t thank you enough for allowing God to use your journey of pain and suffering to minister to so many people-but especially myself. About 15ish years ago God started me on a journey of loss and laying down, rebuilding and renewing, and it has gone from one area of my life to another. The journey has been gut-wrenching at times and joyful at other times. It seems like with each layer of laying down and loss it has taken me deeper and deeper to depths I didn’t even know were hurting and needing healing. In the last few years as I’ve been able to listen to each story and God has used each one to somehow heal a piece of me...some have been so personal and close to my story and some have not been anything close to my experience - but it doesn’t matter - each one had resonated in my soul in some way to bring a piece of healing and wholeness. God has used them to encourage me, and as a tooled I can point others to for encouragement and healing. If we could write our own stories we would never be able to write the way God does to bring beauty from ashes and purpose from pain. Thank you so much for listening to God and making this platform one of hope and healing for so many! You will never know until you get to heaven all of the lives that God has used you to touch because of your obedience. I just listened to your interview Davey and Amanda - This ministry that you said yes to has a far reaching platform that you would not have had without your best yes. I know you reached many lives for the Kingdom through the church but this has the potential to reach lives you never could have if you hadn’t said yes to God - and I am one of them! Blessings-Tricia
