That Sounds Fun with Annie F. Downs (general)

We used some wizardly tricks to get today's podcast together for you! Ginna Claire Mason is currently starring as Glinda in the touring cast of Wicked. It is probably my favorite musical and Ginna Claire is FOR SURE my favorite witch. :) So while the show was in Nashville, we sat down and talked about Broadway life and Nashville life and faith life and how twitter made us friends. I'm excited to introduce you to our new favorite Broadway star.

I am so grateful to be friends with Alex Seeley. One of the pastors of The Belonging Co in Nashville, Alex is a strong and kind voice of leadership in our city and around the world. And she's Australian, so her accent will bless your soul today. Her new book, Tailor Made, is a deep dive into identity and how to move forward in your life with Christ. (IT IS AWESOME.)

After the podcast episode with John Crist, y'all wanted to hear more about Onsite Workshops. Ask and you shall receive, my friends. CEO and owner of Onsite, Miles Adcox, joins us today to talk about his journey to mental and emotional health, answers some good nuts and bolts questions about Onsite, and makes me talk too much (SORRY). If you or someone you love is looking to dig deeper into your own story, I hope this conversation about Onsite helps give you some direction and clarity.

I've never met anyone like Bob Goff. He makes you feel like the most important person in the room, even if you aren't. He listens like what you are saying really matters, even if it doesn't. :) He's really good at friendship and a really wise voice for us all. His new book Everybody, Always is challenging and important and everything you love about Bob- funny, whimsical, a little crazy, kind. This conversation, hopefully, is all those things as well.

I am so excited to finally have Alli Worthington on the show. Amazing business woman, enneagram 7, and author of multiple books, including Fierce Faith, Alli is one of my favorite women. She brings the HEAT on this episode- about fear, leadership, hearing God, and why I should not have gone to the movies with a burrito in my purse. Hope you enjoy this conversation and share it with someone you know would be encouraged by Alli's wisdom!

Let's play ball! Today is Opening Day for Major League Baseball so it was about time to get my friend/brother/favorite Atlanta Brave Dansby Swanson

I met Dansby at church in Nashville when he was at Vanderbilt and just couldn't be more proud of the man he is and the player he is. (You're gonna be so impressed with his wisdom and heart. For real.) And he loves the Atlanta Falcons which is just exactly how to stay in my life forever. I'm betting you will join the unofficial Dansby Fan Club after you hear this conversation. 

Check out his stats!: Dansby Swanson

This one is about to get up in your business. Tauren Wells, one of my favorite artists I've ever toured with, comes on the show and BRINGS THE FIRE over and over. I took notes. For real.

Make sure you check out Tauren's new album Hills and Valleys. It's fun and meaningful and lyrically super sound.

I'm so proud to call Brandon Heath my friend and so grateful he took time to come be on the podcast. He brings such wisdom and truth and honesty- it's really moving. His latest album Faith Hope Love Repeat is a special one, and you'll hear why in this episode. Enjoy it, friends!

I am a longtime fan of Cory Asbury and you're about to be too (if you aren't already). Awesome worship leader, full of wisdom, and pretty funny too, I'm so so glad he was able to carve out some time to chat. Make sure you check out his new album Reckless Love and go see him on tour when he's near you!

Jo Saxton is absolutely one of my favorite co-workers. We get to speak at the same conferences a few times a year, which is always an automatic yes to me if I know Jo will be there too. 

She is wise and fun and loves God in such a deep and profound way. Her new book The Dream of You is one of my favorite recent reads. I think you're going to love her and her writing.
