That Sounds Fun with Annie F. Downs

The world of writing books, blogs, and journals, us drooling over a mutual friend, and then making him our hero. It gets weird. Sorry (but not sorry because we just love you), @prophiphop.

THIS GUY. Y'all he is just absolutely one of my favorites. Today we are catching up with Cory Asbury all about the year he disappeared from the internet, what he learned, what he wrote, and what is next.

Check out his new music and the new book Reckless Love.

I am alllll the way here for this conversation with Pastor Michael Todd from Transformation Church about dating, singleness, and marriage. He is just one of my favorite voices to the church and I absolutely LOVE (and you will too) his energy and heart and humor. The volume of our voices are about the same so prepare yourself. Michael's new book Relationship Goals is the next book you need to read.

(Quick note to the parents of my #miniBFFs... we talk about sex in marriage, so you may want to listen without little ears the first time. I don't want to trigger a "birds and bees" talk if you aren't ready for that LOL.)

We're also over on YouTube talking BREAKUPS woof but excellent. Join us there? YouTube.com/anniefdownstsf

It is never a normal day with Jo Saxton comes on the show. She is full of wisdom, makes me laugh, and never says anything but the absolute truth and I love friends like that. Her voice in my life is incredibly important and I bet you feel the same. Her new book Ready to Rise is such an great read- I think you'll love it anytime, but particularly in this days where we are home THE MOST. :) Can't wait to hear your thoughts!

A longtime friend and a favorite human, writer, speaker, can we say comedian? (yes we can), I am just so happy to have Jen Hatmaker on the show today. We cover all the topics, you aren't surprised about that, including some important thoughts on friendship. Her new book Fierce, Free, and Full of Fire releases tomorrow!

(Jen and I also did a quick video talking ALL ABOUT HAMILTON over on YouTube. Check it out- YouTube.com/anniefdownstsf.)

In February, when the Love Better Tour swung through Houston, we had the absolute honor of visiting Johnson Space Center, home of NASA. And that is where I met Stacey Morgan, wife of astronaut Dr. Drew Morgan

And right now, Thursday April 16, as you are listening, Drew is headed back to Earth from the International Space Station, for the first time in almost 10 months. That also means that Stacey has been a single mom for 10 months in a different kind of deployment scenario (though they've done military deployment too). 

Stacey and I became super fast friends and I knew I wanted you to hear their story, especially on this really special day. I cannot wait to hear your thoughts on this episode! And make sure you check in to watch Drew's landing the morning of April 17th!

(Stacey and I also did a fun quick video about how she has prepared Drew to return to the Earth culturally- like sharing Tiger King with him LOL- over on YouTube. Check it out- YouTube.com/anniefdownstsf.)

The day after Easter, in the middle of a worldwide pandemic, what does it all mean spiritually? And how should we pray? And is this the start of revival? WHAT DO WE NOT KNOW HERE.

I've long wanted to have Jon Tyson, author and pastor of Church of the City New York, on the podcast. He's one of my all time favorite pastors, and he has done the WORK to be an expert for us on revival and prayer and the ways of God. ALERT THIS IS A NOTE TAKER EPISODE. You're gonna want to remember lots of this.

Check out Jon's books, and he'll be back later in the summer to talk about his newest one, Beautiful Resistance.

If something happens twice, can we call it a tradition? :) Because I love the idea of Charles Martin always being our last conversation before Holy Week and Easter. It happened in April 2019 and again today. With tons of compassion and wisdom and kindness, Charles talks to us through this unknown pandemic season with the hope of the One who knows it all.

His new novel The Water Keeper releases next month, and I would HIGHLY encourage you to grab a copy of What If It's True? to read through between Palm Sunday and Easter.

Speaking of next week- we won't have normal Monday or Thursday shows, and there won't be any #TSFQuarantine shows, but each day, starting Sunday, April 5 (Palm Sunday) to Sunday, April 12 (Easter), I'll be reading the story from that day in the Gospels. Something is recorded in Scripture every day from of that globe-shaking week, and we'll hear it straight from the Bible.
