That Sounds Fun with Annie F. Downs

As a long fan of the Bachelor series, I'm really excited for y'all to hear this conversation with Ben Higgins. For those of us who have watched the show, I think you're going to love the MORE of who Ben is. Honest, kind, smart, funny, and full full full of wisdom. But whether you've been a fan of his for a while or this is a first introduction, you're welcome! He's awesome! (This may be one where you scribble down some notes- don't say I didn't warn ya.)

Make sure you check out Generous Coffee too!

This may be a tear-jerker YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. If you are moved by talk of family, adoptions, orphans, and the love and grace of God, this one may get ya. My friend Emily Chapman Richards is the newly appointed executive director of ShowHope and I think she's just one of the best and brightest and most inspiring women I know.

I'm so so happy to have Jeremy Cowart back on the show! We have lots of topics to cover (as you will see) including an update on The Purpose Hotel and his new amazing book I'm Possible. We also spend some time on Santa Claus and and adoption and chronic pain so yeah, we're something special. :)

It all started when one of you sweet friends handed me a novel by Charles Martin. Then I saw I had another on my book shelf from my mom. Then I read them both and now I'm a massive fan and I pretty much begged Charles Martin to come be on the show because FAN GIRL STATUS IS REAL.

His new book, What If It Is True?, is my companion for the next week as we walk towards Easter. (This episode will tell you why and why you should join me!)

(Quick reminder: we are taking next week off the show to celebrate Holy Week. I hope you will take the time you usually spend here with us and use it to read, listen, and learn about why Easter week changed everything for us.) 

Happy Easter, friends. He is risen indeed. See you Monday April 22nd!

This episode is like a little love letter to us all! Jeremy and Audrey Roloff are as amazing and kind and fun to be around as you would guess based on watching their family's hit reality show Little People, Big World. We talk a lot about enneagram and relationships and soccer so what I'm saying is this may be the apex show of my life. :) Their new book A Love Letter Life is already getting incredible feedback - I think you'll love it too.

Emily P. Freeman is so dear to me. Getting to talk to her, listen to her, learn from her, it's quite a gift. I'm so honored to have her on the show today, to get to share her with you. Her newest book just released this week- The Next Right Thing- and along with her podcast, this work is just totally changing me. 

I bet it will change you too.

I do not like April Fools so this is no joke: you guys have been BEGGING me to have Ben Rector on the show and we finally made it happen today! He shows up in a million ways- in humor, in kindness, in wisdom. He's a great musician but an even better man.

His latest album Magic is an absolute favorite and if you get a chance to see him on tour, TAKE IT. His live show is so so good.
