A few years ago, I was asked to speak at a church in Sioux Falls, SD. I had no idea that day that I would meet a lifelong friend and one of my favorite pastors in the nation. Adam Weber is one of the best and I am so so glad to get to introduce y'all to him. His new book Talking With God is all about prayer and talking with Adam about it has changed me and my prayer life. I think you're gonna love the book, the conversation, and this guy.

Since it began in 2009, I have been a fan, family member, and contributor at (in)courage. It's a beautiful corner of the internet for women to gather and make friends. I love that I got to be a part of their new book, Craving Connection. Fellow author, contributor, friend, and all around ball of fun Jennifer Dukes Lee joins me on this episode. We talk about, well, everything (you know how it goes around here, y'all). But we spend a good amount of time swapping book-writing stories. I think you're going to love this gal.

Russ Ramsey is one of my favorite pastor voices in Nashville. His new book Struck might just blow your mind a little bit. A real-time retelling of his life-threatening heart infection and surgery, this book is beautiful for anyone who has suffered, or is currently suffering, and trying to believe God. I love this dude and I think you will too.

You hear her beautiful singing voice on every single episode. Now you get to hear her beautiful talking voice too as Ellie Holcomb and I sit down to discuss all sorts of things, including her new (and incredible) album Red Sea Road.

We laughed. We cried. We told you the truth. I think you're gonna love this one.

Amanda Bible Williams and Raechel Myers from SheReadsTruth are back to talk to us about Lent, the next season on the Christian calendar. If you've ever wondered about this 47 day journey, how and why we celebrate it, what it all means and how to participate, join us for this amazing conversation.

I love these women and how they love Jesus and the Bible. And I love Lent! So fun to chat about it.

Rebekah Lyons is just one of those women that you want on your team. She's fun, she's honest, she loves God and loves her friends and gosh I could just go on and on. (And I kinda do in this podcast.) I'm so thankful that Rebekah and I got to sit down and talk about life and her kids (whom I adore) and her new book "You Are Free." 

I've read it a lot. Trust me. You'll love this book. And you'll love this gal. And you'll love this podcast. (Valentine's week, y'all. So. We're still talking about love over here.) :)

Let's kick off Valentine's week with our first ever married couple show! Mike and Molly Grayson are not only married (with a kid), they are also an AMAZING duo called Grayson|Reed. Their new EP "Walk" just released and it is on repeat at my house. Can't wait for y'all to meet them and fall in love with their story, their music, and the way they talk about each other. (IT IS THE BEST.)

Michael Wear may be one of the smartest men I know. He spent four years in the White House with President Obama working on faith initiatives. His new book "Reclaiming Hope" is about that season of his life, where faith and politics meet, and what hope looks like going forward. And also? He sings like a crooner on snapchat. So. You have THAT to look forward to. You're gonna love this guy.

You know the best way to end a Christmas party is standing around laughing with your favorite people, and that is why we have Eddie Kaufholz back with us today. With Christmas just around the corner, I definitely needed to get Eddie's opinion on some very important holiday topics. But obviously, we ended up talking about 73 other things as well.

Hope you enjoy the end of the party and we'll see you in 2017!

(Thank you for listening, friends. I love hanging with you here. <3)

She's been singing to my heart (and my ears) for almost twenty years, so I have a lot (read: ALL) of Christy Nockels's music. But her new Christmas album, A Thrill of Hope, is on repeat over at the Downs Books Inc office these days.

The Christmas party continues with a good long chat with Christy about music and Franklin, TN and raising children and finding a church and Christmas and how I embarrassed us all the first time I met her. 

This party is full of the very best people, isn't it?
