That Sounds Fun with Annie F. Downs

YOU GUYS. I've been SUCH a fan of Taylor Twellman for a lot of years, so when he was in Nashville last week, I just dang near begged him to be on the podcast to talk soccer. And we did. But we also talked about 1000 other things that I think you're gonna love. So no matter your sports feels, I think this whole episode is going to become a favorite. (And now he's stuck being friends with me you know how this goes...)

Also, if you or your kid are into contact sports, I hope you'll take this concussion conversation seriously and check out ThinkTaylor.org as well as the #TTPledge.

This conversation with author Shannan Martin has been rolling through my head since we spoke last week. What does it really look like to love our neighbors? To be a part of where we live? To make our neighborhoods better by living gospel lives in our homes and streets and grocery stores? Shannan does it. And I'm learning so much from her.

Her new book The Ministry of Ordinary Places, is a great peek into her life and some ways she has seen God and heard Him and been asked by Him to love the people she lives with. (It's beautiful.)

Y'all this episode is so special to me. I've been a HUGE fan of Scott Harrison for years so to get to sit across the desk from him and talk about charity:water, New York City, and faith was so fun for me. And I loved the topics that arose that we could not have planned! I've started reading his new book Thirst and gracious is it good- revealing and inspiring and honest. Totally worth the read. I'm really excited to share this powerful conversation with you today!

It's so fun for me to have a friend like CJ Casciotta on the show today (and in my life). He's one of those dudes that celebrates you just for being you. He's wise and bright and awesome and you're gonna love him.

His new book, Get Weird, just released. I gifted it to my cousin and have a list of friends I look forward to giving it to at Christmas. This guy and this book are such gifts to us in our world today. Can't wait for you to get it!

I love this guy so much. Jonathan Merritt is a dear dear friend and a Georgia Bulldog fan and an incredibly gifted writer. He has more good stuff to say than we had minutes, and we usually talk for hours, but were were self-controlled and only gave y'all the best of us. :) 

His new book, Learning to Speak God from Scratch, has changed me and given me words I didn't know I needed. Make sure you get a copy today. And by the way, you can hear me on Jonathan's podcast, Seekers & Speakers, as well!

HAPPY SEPTEMBER, FRIENDS!

And there is no better way to kick off the fall than talking football with one of the coolest women we know. Samantha Ponder is one of the most respected women in sports broadcasting and definitely one the most recognized faces in football. But to me, she's also an amazing Jesus-loving woman who is one of my favorite instagram follows FOR SURE. Y'all are just gonna adore her.
