Welcome to The Uncomfortable Grace Podcast, a place where uncomfortable circumstances become the very conversations that could change your life. We all have some understanding of what it means to have grace for others, but how often do we demonstrate it toward ourselves? It is our hope that this podcast will teach you how to unpack the plot twists and to ask intentional questions that invite deep reflection when life seems chaotic. In the face of great resistance, we want to learn how to soften, surrender, and see where grace can take us because it is so much bigger than a bible buzzword.

    Grace & Humility with Mandy and Heather

    Grace & Humility with Mandy and Heather

    Heather is back! We and wrapping season two with a big conversation reimagining the way we practice our faith and deeper into the way Jesus lived.



    We believe grace is excessive, willing to be wrong, and reckless on behalf of those who need to feel the most love, acceptance, and celebration.



    Join us as we daydream about season three, with a few spoilers about some of the guests to come.

    Thanks for listening!

    Grace & Loyalty with Mandy and Heather

    Great news! Heather is back on the show this week for a conversation about loyalty to ourselves! We are sharing some vulnerable stories about how we can pursue loyalty to ourselves guilt free. In finding forgiveness toward ourselves, we can honor our boundaries in a way that brings freedom to find a new path forward.

    Grace & The Cost with Kevin Nye

    Grace & The Cost with Kevin Nye

    We are thrilled to have our dear friend Kevin Nye back on the podcast! Kevin joined us in season one to discuss his work with the unhoused community in LA and his dream of influencing the church to get involved in the solution.



    Today, Kevin is celebrating the launch of his new book, "Grace Can Lead Us Home: A Christian Call to End Homelessness." With the book of his heart and dreams published, Kevin is here to discuss how we can confront the most common barriers to engagement and help churches find their "YES" in the work of ending the housing crisis - no matter the cost.



    This episode is truly required listening. There will be a test.

    Grace & Finding Home with Tia Thomas

    Grace & Finding Home with Tia Thomas

    What does it mean to find home where you least expect it? For Tia Thomas, it meant moving in with her partner, children, her parents, and siblings. When the pressures of life became too great, Tia and her partner felt their best chance for success as a family unit was to take the awkward risk of living with her parents. Today, Tia is telling us the story of the pressure, the beauty, and all the in-between that helped her learn how to come home again.

    Grace & The Depths with John Chaffee

    Grace & The Depths with John Chaffee

    This conversation is RICH with growth hierarchies, insight, quotes, and the enneagram! These days, John Chaffee is a modern day mystic, teaching contemplative Christian spirituality at Eastern University and holding space for anyone asking big, unanswerable questions. But his story is about the ambush of eucatastrophes he experienced hiking the Appalachian Trail and how this adventure revolutionized his life. Also, I wish this conversation was about six hours longer!

    Grace & Justice with Micah Morgan

    Grace & Justice with Micah Morgan

    We all love the idea of justice, but do we really know what it means? In today's conversation, we are briefly unpacking the nuance and impact of the old testament book of Micah. Our guest is licensed professional counselor & associate pastor Micah Morgan, who is reimagining humanity in a way that allows us to live with justice as a way of life instead of as an occasional act of perceived obedience in our culture wars.

Classy

Finally, a podcast willing to talk about the things that everyone goes through but is terrified to talk about. I recently met Mandy, and she is quality all the way through. I share this podcast with my college students often!

Comfort in the uncomfortable

In the middle without the bow tied at the end, these smart hosts invite topics and guests to talk about what we need to think more about while offering the grace that covers all.

Great new podcast!

I love how real and authentic this podcast is. I felt like I was sitting down with a couple friends over coffee. I can’t wait to hear the depth of conversation in future episodes. ❤️
