    Love Covers- a Conversation with Tracey and Gary Coiro

    Love Covers- a Conversation with Tracey and Gary Coiro

    Love covers. When God gave us his Son Jesus, who gave his life to pay for our sins, He covered us. It’s the opposite of exposing and shaming. Sadly, it seems to be the opposite of what people often do. And yet this is what God has called us to do for others, in small ways and big ones.
    Join me for a special conversation with my wonderful husband Pastor Gary Coiro as we talk about the difference between cancel culture and cover culture.

    “Above all, love each other deeply because love covers a multitude of sins.” - 1 Peter 4:8

    Kristian Stanfill and the Healing Love of God

    Kristian Stanfill and the Healing Love of God

    Passion City Church has birthed some special artists and music that have been a light to my path. I’m so grateful for them. One of my favorites is Kristian Stanfill. He’s a gifted worship leader, singer/song-writer and he‘s been a part of my regular playlist for years now. But Kristian has been in a personal battle, that until November of last year, was a private one.

    How do you heal from a personal addiction to alcohol, when you’re a public worship leader? Kristian joins me for an encouraging, honest conversation about real life and a real God who helps us in our darkness. He has been sober for 2 ½ years now, but he has learned some important things along the way about healing and the love of God.

    I am so honored to share this important conversation with you and I hope, as I know Kristian does as well, that it helps others who are struggling too. You can make it out alive... and if you trust the process, God will bring healing and joy back into your life.

    Finding Joy in the Journey of Autism with Sandy Hartranft

    Finding Joy in the Journey of Autism with Sandy Hartranft

    When Sandy Hartranft’s youngest son Ben was 3 years old, she walked into the dining room and could hardly believe what she saw. Ben had climbed up on the table and was literally swinging from the chandelier! With incredible humor, faith, and wisdom, Sandy shares her story of discovering her son had autism. How this amazing family has navigated the force of energy that is Ben, is inspiring. Ben is now a young man with hopes and dreams and an irresistible joy, and he’s even become a public speaker/advocate for people with autism. But the journey began with a mom who had to let go of what her idea of her family might be and learn to trust God with something even better.

    In this warm and wonderful conversation, Sandy shares her story and her advice to other families on this journey too. I love this family so much and I know you will too.

    You can find joy in the journey of autism. You just might need some help from someone who’s been there.

Almost a comeback ,

Authentic

I became a listener of her morning show on 95.1SHINE when we lived in Baltimore and always found her to be so authentic. These are crazy times. When I wake up in the middle of the night with thoughts racing through my head, I listen to Tracy and it settles me down. I just purchased Holy Love by Jill Ellen Smith episode #20.

Tracey isn’t afraid to dig deep

I love Tracey’s podcasts. I listen to several each day. She seems to ask questions the guests haven’t heard before and the responses are so rooted in the Bible and truth. I share episodes with many family members and look forward to listening to more episodes.

Defining human touch! ,

Realness felt
