That Sounds Fun with Annie F. Downs

Let's start here: what's a podcast network? Well, the That Sounds Fun Network is an amusement park of podcasts created to entertain, impact, help and bless you and the people you love. So if you love TSF the show, we think and hope you'll love all the shows on the TSF Network.

Obviously THIS show (That Sounds Fun) is on the TSF Network, so is Annie and Eddie Keep Talking, and now- THE NEXT RIGHT THING hosted by Emily P. Freeman! 

I KNOW. I AM THRILLED TOO. 

So today, you'll hear a conversation with Emily and I, about our lives and friendship and normal talking talk, but then we also talk about her show- The Next Right Thing- and why she decided to join the TSF Network.

IT IS ALL VERY EXCITING.

Make sure you've subscribed to The Next Right Thing- it's an incredibly good show.

We always love when Luke Norsworthy comes on the show- he's a friend favorite. We cover one billion topics, laugh a ton, grieve the very recent loss of his mother, and I gush on how much I love his family. His newest book, Befriending Your Monsters, releases next week. Grab a copy today! (I wrote the foreword... I promise it's great.)

Friends. I thank you in advance for engaging in this conversation and facing what it causes you to feel and what it brings up in you. Thank you for being the kind of friends that are open to tough conversations that are honest and true and needed, even if they aren't as easy, because we are all learning together how to be a part of racial reconciliation and letting our lives and friendships better display the beautiful diversity of the kingdom of God.

Mike Kelsey is a great friend and an amazing pastor and generous in so many ways to us. I'm thankful for his words today and all he said.

I am such a huge fan of Jennifer Fulwiler and her work and this conversation is LONG overdue- she's one of the guests y'all keep requesting. Her book Your Blue Flame has been helping me put words to some things I'm feeling and handing me some next steps. She's so fun to talk with and you're going to love Jen and her new book!

I greatly admire Pastor Eugene Cho- for his preaching, his leadership, his writing, his obedience, his advocacy. Every time I've been under his teaching I've left changed, including this conversation today. It's important. I hope you will listen, take notes, and ask yourself the same question I'm asking myself- what does it look like for me to use the privilege I have to advocate for those who don't?

Pastor Eugene's newest book, Thou Shall Not Be a Jerk, is available everywhere. We also hop over to continue our chat on YouTube, so check that out and subscribe there so you don't miss any of these special additional conversations!

Mother's Day shows matter so much to me- I love being able to feature moms that will bless us as we listen. Months and months ago I asked Jennie Lusko to be on this exact episode. She is right for us for a million reasons- she's a friend, she's funny, she's kind and smart and thoughtful and you're just going to fall in love with her. Her new book The Fight To Flourish is so incredibly important for all of us in this season. Mom or not, you need this one.

Don't forget to head over to YouTube to see Jennie and I talk about Mother's Day gifts! (YouTube.com/anniefdownstsf)
