    That Sounds Fun Network: Welcome Deck The Hallmark!

    Let's start here: what's a podcast network? Well, the That Sounds Fun Network is an amusement park of podcasts created to entertain, impact, help and bless you and the people you love. So if you love TSF the show, we think and hope you'll love all the shows on the TSF Network.

    We are deeply proud of the shows on the TSF Network, and we are very excited about the ones that will be joining in 2022!

    Christmas has come early this year, my friends! We are just thrilled to welcome Deck The Hallmark to our amusement park. The guys who run this show are HILARIOUS and kind and so likeable and honestly, who doesn't need a little Hallmark talk in their daily lives? Hear us today discuss how this whole thing started, why joining a network sounded fun to them, and some HOT TAKES on Christmas in July movies. (Also, Brendan Penny... we love you.)

    Go subscribe today! A new show launches every DAY (welcome to Christmas in July!) so there are episodes ready for you RIGHT NOW!

    Episode 394: Alexa PenaVega + What If Love Is the Point?

    Episode 394: Alexa PenaVega + What If Love Is the Point?

    I'm so happy to talk to my new friend, Alexa PenaVega, on the podcast about moving her family to Hawaii, her marriage with husband, Carlos PenaVega, their new book What If Love Is the Point? (that releases TOMORROW!), hearing God, the power of rest, going on tour, the list goes on! Ya'll! Alexa is so open and honest. This conversation is one of my favorites.

    (And FYI we jump into some pretty deep conversation about some topics, like sex, marriage, and disordered eating. These topics may be tender to you, so I wanted you to know before you listened so you could care for yourself well. And, for our #miniBFFs, this show may be a bit much for their little ears.)

    Episode 393: Andy Crouch + The Life We're Looking For

    One of my heroes in the faith space, Andy Crouch, is here to speak into our lives about when tech and faith culture meet. When we started taking about building a life where we don't need anybody....PHEW! That one got me. This is such a great conversation, ya'll. And Andy's new book, The Life We're Looking For is definitely one to add to your reading list!

    Episode 392: David Thomas + Raising Emotionally Strong Boys

    Episode 392: David Thomas + Raising Emotionally Strong Boys

    My friend (and all around best.counselor.ever), David Thomas, is back on the pod today with so much wisdom on raising the young men in our lives. This is such an important conversation for not just parents, but for humans in general.

    (Because of the nature of David's work at Daystar Counseling, we talk about some topics, like suicide, that may be painful for you, and too grown-up for my miniBFFs. Please listen with those thoughts in mind.)

    One of my culinary heroes, Pat Martin, is in the studio today! Ya'll. His new cookbook, Life of Fire, is SO COOL.
