That Sounds Fun with Annie F. Downs

This one is just sweet and special and inspiring and I absolutely LOVE when Sadie Robertson Huff and I get to chat... this one is extra awesome because her new husband Christian Huff is here with us as well! We talk dating and God and marriage and then we get a special visit from an office friend who eavesdropped and had some thoughts to include. It's a packed show, y'all! 

Sadie also has a new book out called LIVE- make sure you grab a copy today!

I have long long long wanted to have Propaganda on the podcast, and this was just perfect to have him for Couples Month, since his wife Dr. Alma Zaragoza-Petty was available to hop on the microphones with us too. Marriage, family, boundaries, we go to all the places in this conversation. (And we're giving this one a PG rating, so for my miniBFFs out there, maybe Mom and Dad should give a listen first.) Prop and Alma have their own podcast- The Red Couch Podcast- that you should give a listen! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on this one!

Y'all I am so in love with this episode. Addison Bevere swung through the studio when he was in Nashville and we planned to release the show in March... well then his wife Julianna was with him and we turned her microphone on and MY GOSH it is a brilliant show. His recently released book Saints is one of my favorite new books- I think you'll totally love it.

Buckle up. This is the best hour of your day.

We ticked off all the boxes on this one- yes, a couple so that works for February (AND I LOVE JACKS AND SHAWL!) and a Hallmark conversation like we talked about having more than just at Christmas, lots of laughs and great conversations and Brendan Penny talk, so all is well. Learning how to work together and laugh together and build a project together (like The Bubbly Sesh!) is pretty impressive- I love what I get to learn from these two! Definitely check out their podcast and listen, I just watched The Secret Ingredient and it may be my new favorite. HALLMARK I LOVE YOU MORE EVERY DAY.

Put this episode in the most requested guest category because Y'ALL LOVE THE WOLFS. Of course I wanted to have them on- so your wish is my command! We had the best time chatting, me in Nashville and them in Atlanta, about our friendship history, how they met, life before and after her stroke, and what it really means to suffer strong. These folks are two of my heroes.

I am so so thrilled to have amazing singer/songwriter Matthew West and his wife Emily on the podcast today. (It's Emily's FIRST EVER POD INTERVIEW so y'all be extra sweet to her.) But that will be easy because she is amazing. This whole conversation is. From dating to Nashville, from picking a church (I think many of y'all will relate to the fears of vulnerability we talk about there) to praying for your kids to songwriting to the Grammys... we go all the places. Matthew has a new album releasing Friday that I think you're going to love called Brand New. Make sure you grab a copy!

And yes. I had one major complaint with Matthew, but we saved that for YouTube... go check it out! :)

I love having Amanda Bible Williams and Raechel Myers on the podcast- especially when we get to celebrate couples (co-workers definitely count!) and with the season of Lent approaching, we have A LOT to discuss. I just love love love having Amanda and Raechel on the show. I think this is our best one yet.

(And just to note, towards the beginning of this one, we talk about the loss of a child and how to parent the other children when there is a tragedy or loss. Was reminded by a listener friend that some of y'all may want a heads up about that. <3 )

As always these sweet friends showed up with an excellent discount code for you- FUN20 will get you 20% off of everything (except subscription boxes) at shopshereadstruth.com! Grab your Lent studies and She and He Bibles and prep for those Easter baskets and graduations!

And don't forget we've got a few more questions, specifically about EASTER BASKETS!, with the SheReadsTruth gals over on the AFD YouTube page! Check it out!

Couples Month is one of my favorite series of the year and this first episode of February is a excellent way to start. Chris and Emily Norton are known for their viral videos, but gracious after an hour with them it's so clear they are so much more. Their book The Seven Longest Yards is such an interesting read. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on this conversation and these amazing people.

And don't forget we've got a few more questions with the Nortons over on the AFD YouTube page! I think you'll enjoy this continued conversation...
