    117: Johnathan Pitts | Navigating Grief and Loss

    Today we’re so excited to welcome our friend Johnathan Pitts to the show.  Johnathan is an author, speaker, and executive pastor at COTC here in Franklin, TN. For years he served as the director of the Urban Alternative which is the national ministry of Dr. Tony Evans in Dallas, Tx.  Jonathan has co-authored two books alongside his late wife, Wynter Pitts. He is also President of For Girls Like You Ministries, a ministry for tween girls and their parents. 



    In this conversation, Johnathan shares the highs and lows of his story, which has been quite a whirlwind over the last few years.  Just after celebrating 15 years of marriage to his wife Wynter, in the summer of 2018, Wynter passed away unexpectedly in her sleep. Johnathan shares his journey of grief and loss, how the Lord has carried him over the last few years, navigating life with his 4 daughters, finding their new normal, and trusting God for their future. This was such a beautiful, rich conversation with Johnathan. We were so blessed by the lessons he shared from his story. We can’t wait to share it with you.

We sat down with Shauna to unpack her latest book (one of our very favorites of 2022) entitled, “I Guess I Haven’t Learned that Yet.” Shauna shares her journey of navigating life in a season of big change, about learning to let go, remake your life, and what it means to start over with curiosity and self-compassion.



    This interview was one for us that could not have come at a better time, after navigating a similar move across the country with little kids, just before COVID, we just needed every. single. word. So, we can’t wait for you all to hear Shauna's incredible story and the wisdom she shares along the way. No matter where this finds you today - we hope this conversation will be as helpful to you as it was to us! So, without further ado, lets jump into today's conversation.

    Today we’re so thrilled to welcome our new friend, Enneagram Expert, and Best-Selling Author, Ian Cron to the show! Ian is an Episcopal Priest, a trained Psychologist, and author of some of the most helpful books you can find on the Enneagram, including the best- seller, The Road Back to You.

    Today we’re talking with Ian about his latest book called The Story of You, using enneagram wisdom to rewrite the broken stories we tell ourselves about who we are! This interview was so rich, definitely one you'll want to listen to over & over again. There’s an incredible 4 step process that Ian outlines for us today that would be so helpful to go through with your spouse or someone you love & trust, to really examine the story you’re living in, see how it lines up with the truth, and rewrite a newer, truer story of who you really are. This conversation was so powerful, we cannot wait to dive in. So let's get to it.

One of the best!

I have loved listening to this podcast over the last year. There is so many practical topics covered and I truly feel encouraged and motivated to be a better wife, mom and person. Very thankful that Chris and Jenni take so much of their time to put forth a quality, Christian podcast. I highly recommend!

They Live It Well

This podcast is like a hug that you didn't know you needed. It's like a cup of coffee that you've slowed down enough to taste. It's like meeting a couple on vacation that you liked so much, you exchange information, form a friendship and plan a vacation together in the future. It's professional but not a production. It's insightful but not academic. It's transparent but not dramatic. It's just a pleasurable and powerful way to spend your time. I mean the mission is in their mantra: you only have one life to live, live it well. Who doesn't want to do that?

Wisdom for the journey

I love this podcast! I know when I listen each week, I’ll be coming away from it encouraged and redirected toward how to live my best life well. In a world full of noise, this one cuts to the chase and gives me information I can actually use to live my life on purpose.
