That Sounds Fun with Annie F. Downs

Many of you already feel the way I do about Ellie Holcomb: OBSESSED and IN LOVE. I know. She's wonderful. And there's no one better to walk into our Christmas party right after our SheReadsTruth friends than Ellie! 

We talk about life and friendship and the holidays and her new book for kids- Who Sang the First Song?- that you DEFINITELY need in your life. (And if you aren't already a fan of her music, start with Red Sea Road. It's my faaaaaavorite.)

It's the most wonderful time of the year, you guys! No better way to officially kick off our Christmas Party than to have Raechel Myers and Amanda Bible Williams from SheReadsTruth on to talk all about Advent- why we celebrate it, how to celebrate it, what it means, and why it is important.

If you've been around for a Christmas Party before, you know these party animals are staples and always the first to arrive. MY KIND OF PEOPLE. Love these gals so much.

Why wait until AFTER Thanksgiving to kick off our party?!? Instead I'm going ALL IN and bringing back one of your (AND my) favorite guests- Danielle Walker! We're talking all about cooking for the holidays, all the times we'll be in the same place over the next few months, and how we feel about turkey (and her BIG TIP on how to make the most delicious one your people have ever known). Only one episode this Thanksgiving week- so I had to make it a good one. 

Use that Black Friday deal and pre-order a copy of Danielle's new cookbook Eat What You Love... TRUST ME the biscuits and gravy are reason enough to own this one.

Happy Thanksgiving, friends. So grateful for you. 

. . . . .

Thanks to Dave Barnes for making holiday music we all love! Make sure you've got his Christmas records in your listening rotation!

It's so fun and such an honor to have Becca Stevens on the podcast today! Author. Speaker. Episcopal priest. Founder of Thistle Farms. Over the last 22 years, she has changed the face of justice work in Nashville and a LOT of lives in the process. This is a beautiful conversation about justice and kindness and rescuing women from poverty and the cycle of abuse (and how men can help!). What a hero and a legend. Y'all are going to love her.

I have a new house and there is no better woman to help me figure out how to decorate than my friend Myquillyn Smith. You probably know her as The Nester and she is just one of the best. Her wisdom, her style, the way her faith and love of family drive how she creates home, it's all so inspirational and so helpful.

Her new book Cozy Minimalist Home just released and I am OBSESSED already. Grab a copy!

I'm such a huge fan of Good Grit Magazine and WHOA was I honored/surprised/happy when Laura Bento, the founder and CEO, asked me to help curate an issue and be the guest editor. I wrote a few original exclusive pieces, had my friends interviewed and featured, and got to fly to Scotland for the cover shoot! You guys are going to love getting to know Laura and hearing all about the behind-the-scenes making of a magazine. (And there is a super special guest that will bring tears to your eyes!)

Hayley Morgan is a force for truth and light and standing on your own two feet. I've loved being friends with her for years and as always happens, when you stick around someone's life long enough, you see them grow and change. She's watched that in my story, and I've watched it in hers. And her new book Preach To Yourself is an absolute testimony to the power of truth and will call you higher in who you are. (And she's awesome and fun and you will just adore her. Amen.)

Grant Skeldon is one of the best dudes you'll meet. He's passionate about his city and his generation and being healthy body, mind, and spirit. We jumped right, catching up on something I had noticed on instagram but hadn't been able to ask Grant about yet. And I think you'll like where the conversation goes.

Grab Grant's book The Passion Generation for yourself and some leaders in your life.
