The Friend Zone with Crystal Yates :: [ Episode 135 ]
It is always a pleasure to catch up with this lady!
Crystal Yates came into our lives a few years back during a conference in Florida at, of all places, Disney World! And she's been making us smile ever since.
Crystal is one of our favorite worship leaders. A wife, mom, and singer/songwriter, Crystal is so in love with Jesus, her joy for Him is simply not contained. We have followed her to other states to hear her sing and lead worship! Do we sound like groupies??? We are!!!
In this episode of The Friend Zone, Crystal recounts lessons learned through a very difficult time in her life. During a recent illness and lengthy hospital stay, Crystal realized that "fear got loud and God got quiet." But even though she wasn't hearing from Him, He was there. And He was changing her.
Crystal also shares about her wonderful, faithful grandmother. We always love grandmother stories! :) We know you will be encouraged by this episode of TWP. Thank you Crystal for joining us!
As always, thank you for listening to TWP. If you would like to donate to our podcast ministry, you can click The Party Table link at http://www.chrissiedunham.org.

Chrissie and Lisa Talk Mercy :: [Episode 134]
After we spoke with our friend Kay Wyma last month about her new book, "The Peace Project," we decided to spend an entire episode talking about mercy.
That's right. Mercy.
So much of that discussion left us wanting more, so here it is.
We discuss why showing mercy is so hard. Why???
The definition of mercy is "compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one's power to punish or harm." At its core, mercy is forgiveness. But it seems beyond love and forgiveness.
We hope you'll be encouraged by our discussion. We always want to talk about things that will encourage us but also spur us on.
Thank you for listening and for encouraging us! If you like what you hear, go to Apple Podcasts and give us a 5star review! That would make our day!
Living a FULL (not busy) life with Terri Flannagan :: [ Episode 133 ]
Terri Flannagan joined us today on TWP! Let us say she is pure D-lite with a capital D! We LOVE her!
We wanted to talk with Terri and find out how a mom of 3 can launch a consulting business, ministry, and extraordinary home life without breaking a sweat.
She stopped us several times in our tracks, explaining to us that she's not BUSY! And that's not her goal!
Her goal is a FULL LIFE with her husband Chuck and their 3 precious little ones.
God has given her vision, and she doesn't take that lightly. She's a doer. And she gets things done. But priorities keep her focused and intentional.
A few years ago, God placed on Terri's heart the need for a community of women to gather in the Charlotte, NC, area. And Ember was born.
Ember is a quarterly gathering for women to come together to encounter Jesus through worship, teaching, and prayer. We also talk about taking purposeful, intentional breaks from social media. Terri has lots to say about this, and it's so good.
Listen in and be encouraged no matter what stage of life you are in. Thanks for joining us, Terri!

Summertime at Ham Orchards :: [Episode 132]
For many summers now, we've taken a day trip to Terrell, Texas to experience "peach heaven" at Ham Orchards.
Since 1979, nestled on the side of County Road 309, you can visit the orchard, come home with the juiciest, sweetest peaches you've ever tasted, and experience Texas hospitality at its finest. Our friends Sharien "Ham" Strange and Joy Weaver join us this week, recounting the heritage of the orchards, the changes throughout the years, and how God is using this summer passion for His purposes.
Follow along with each summer at the Ham Orchards website for hours of operation and special events throughout. If you are in Texas, make this stop a tradition as we have! Did we mention BBQ is available, too? So come hungry and plan on staying a while. The rocking chairs await!
What's your favorite thing to make with juicy, ripe peaches? COBBLER??? ICE CREAM??? Speaking of ice cream, you MUST get some peach ice cream while visiting Ham's. Strawberry is available, too, and Joy gets the swirl! :)
Thanks for following along with TWP! Have you subscribed yet? If so, THANK YOU!
Would you be willing to give us a 5-star review? Please do!
We are so thankful for YOU!!!

Friendship can be tricky at times and community is hard. We chat about all the ins and outs of friendship in this episode and discover that we are all just looking for an invitation.
Who can you invite to the table today? Enjoy this edition of The Friend Zone!!
Best podcast out there!
This is my go-to podcast every week. It’s my first one I listen to every week. Chrissie and Lisa cover books of the Bible or have great guests on that share great Biblical wisdom. I always learn something from each and every podcast. Keep up the good work ladies!
Coming from a Cradle Catholic upbringing I never felt truly connected to God the Father. I found myself as a mother trying to spiritually lead my family and really not knowing where to start. Listening to this podcast gives me hope and joy along with so many wonderful insightful pieces of wisdom for my walk with God. In a world full of chaos ugliness and uncertainty we must choose to be selective in what we fill our minds with and this friends will both fill your heart and minds with the shared love of Jesus and help you to focus your eyes above.
Thanks for these encouraging words and the reminder to pursue peace and unity in the body of Christ as we work to build HIS kingdom.
