That Sounds Fun with Annie F. Downs

YOU GUYS WE DID IT.

100 episodes.

And you're still here. (Thanks for that!) 

This one is ridiculous and fun and a sprinkling of stuff that matters and lots of Royal Wedding and a promise about Christmas that you don't want to forget (because I'm never talking about it ever again). Just 100 hot takes.

Y'all have made my life so much more fun. Thank you.

. . . . .

Y'all know we love talking about Sabbath around here, and with summer kicking off this week, let's talk a bit about slowing down and what rest can look like (I bet it's different than you think). Curtis Zackery, or CZ as we friends call him, has written a new book called Soul Rest all about it. We knock into a lot of topics- church leadership, race, miscarriage, just to name a few- and you're going to love and respect this pastor, leader, author, and friend by the time we're done.

Harvest and I have been friends for years and I've watched her grow as a worship leader and as a woman of God in amazing (and pain-filled) ways. Buckle up for a conversation about pain and worship and the book of Revelation... and movie pass. :) Her new album Preachers will be a gift to be played over and over in your life.

Dropping another surprise Monday episode in here because y'all are awesome and I want you to hear my new favorite song! Right Now is a song written for our local church but I am BEYOND HAPPY that you can hear it now too. Krissy Nordhoff, Zach Kale, and Mike Grayson wrote it together and it has been SUCH a gift to our church for the last few months. Can't wait for you to hear it and hear the heart behind the writers.

HAPPY MONDAY, FRIENDS! :)

My gracious I love these people. If you are a church person, you probably have been singing Passion Music songs for years. And I bet you already know Kristian Stanfill, Melodie Malone, and Brett Younker. But today we sit down and have one of my favorite conversations with all three of them. (And we call on the power of Shelley Giglio a few times too... mainly to get us La Croix endorsements.) Passion Music just released a new album, Whole Heart, that you are going to totally love.

Here's what. 

I just have some things I want to tell you (some fun and exciting things!) and some questions I have for you and the only real way I know to communicate with you is to talk to you. So pretend we are sitting down at my favorite coffee shop in Nashville just having a conversation about this little corner of the podcast universe we call the That Sounds Fun Podcast. And then let me know what you think! 

Please please please pop over to my website and fill out the survey? HELP A SISTER OUT. Please? :)

You're the very best always and forever and I love you to pieces. Amen.

I am so so happy to have a sweet mama on the show this week to help kick off your Mother's Day Weekend celebrating! Hilary Yancey has a unique, hard, and beautiful story of her growing family that I think will connect with you and change you. Her first book, Forgiving God: A Story of Faith is moving and powerful and yet intensely vulnerable and kind. You've gonna love it and you're gonna love her. 

Happy Mother's Day to all you women who birthed, adopted, raised, cared for, and hugged children. Whether they are yours or they are someone else's but loved by you, you are doing good work. Keep it up. I'm proud to be your friend.

It's a strong women kind of week around here. And you know how much I love when my friends become friends- so that's my hope with today's episode! Candace Cameron Bure has a new book out- Kind Is The New Classy- and she's a Hallmark movie star AND she is DJ Tanner. So for all the reasons, I was so so happy to get to chat with her! And then I grabbed my gal Mo Isom to come and hang with us, too. Mo has been on the show before, but her new book Sex, Jesus, and the Conversations the Church Forgot is amazing and I was DYING to get her here to talk with us.

And now all my dreams are coming true because it's just like we all sat down at the same table over coffee (or chai) and got to be friends. :)

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.)
