That Sounds Fun Podcast Episode 15: Tim Shaw

on June 23, 2016 in That Sounds Fun Podcast with 2 comments by

When I was writing Looking For Lovely, there was one story I knew I wanted to tell. Before most of the chapters were even outlined, I knew I wanted Tim Shaw in the book.

He’s so funny, y’all. I mean, you are going to laugh your guts out on this one. And he’s wise. And he doesn’t mind saying the hard thing to me which I love and hate all at the same time. He’s just great.

If you haven’t read Looking For Lovely yet, here’s a quick bio of Tim- former NFL player, now retired and battling ALS, Tim and I became friends a few years ago through church and he will hate me saying this, but it truly is an honor to share life with him and cheer for him as he fights hard against this disease.

He’s also a freestyle rapper and you’re gonna get two raps in this episode. So prepare your heart for THAT. 🙂
