    Unscripted with Joel Penton - LifeWise Academy

    Joel Penton is a graduate of The Ohio State University and played 5 years of football for the Buckeyes. He was a member of 3 Big Ten championship teams, a member of the National Championship team, and a 4-time Academic All-Big Ten selection.
    In his senior year, Joel received the prestigious Wuerffel Trophy, also known as the HUMANITARIAN HEISMAN. The Trophy is a national award that recognizes the one college football player in the entire country who best combines exemplary community service with athletic and academic achievement. After graduating from OSU, Joel turned down an opportunity to play in the NFL to begin a career in full-time speaking.

    In Episode 97, we discuss the 3 impactful brands that Joel has launched. We spend a majority of our time discussing Lifewise Academy and how it is available to every school district. It has been my honor to watch Joel continue to change the score and eternity with his heart for the Lord and students.

    Unscripted with Kim Emch - Festa Ministries

    Unscripted with Kim Emch - Festa Ministries

    Kim is a servant of God because He rescued her. By the time she was 17, she had lived through five divorces by two parents: one being an alcoholic, and one having an affair. She didn’t grow up facing financial poverty, but her home was filled with chaos and pain. But God did not forget her; He rescued her.  He sent people from a local church who invited her every single week to a youth program they hosted. It was full of joy and peace. It was a safe refuge. They cared about her, loved her, and taught her about the Lord. They said,
    “Kim, the God of the universe made you and He loves you. You’re gifted and talented.”
    “Kim, you’re smart. Have you ever thought of going to college?”
    “Kim, you have leadership abilities. We could hone that for you. We can grow that in you and God could use you for his plans for His future.”
    They started casting a vision for her of a future where she would use her gifts and talents to serve God.
    Episode 96 of the Unscripted Podcast is one-on-one with Kim Emch. She is the Founder and Executive Director of Festa Ministry. Her influence and her calling has changed the scores for so many. 
    When Kim was called, there were....
    2158 children who were in poverty and receiving a free or reduced lunch. 
    She made a decision to love, serve and feed them (body, mind and spirit). 
    She made a decision to bring the community with her. 
    We are so blessed in Hilliard, Ohio to have some one with Kims passion, leadership and drive. Along with her army of volunteers and partners, Festa is literally changing the landscape for those that would otherwise have no where else to go.

Engaging. Honest. Real.

Unscripted is one of the best podcasts I have listened to. Aaron does a marvelous job of hosting this gem by initiating the conversation and then getting out of the way so his guests can tell their story. I also enjoy how diverse his guests are ranging from sports, education, pastors, authors, his daughter and the list goes on. Unscripted is great for my ears and even better for my spirit.

Jeromy Rose ,
