Get ready to laugh, y’all. Melanie Shankle cracks me up more than most do (and y’all know I’m an easy laugh). We’ve been friends since before we had these jobs and it’s always fun to talk to someone you’ve walked over a decade with. Her new book, On The Bright Side, is a real special thing. I think you’re going to love it.

(Because we recorded this show before Monday, there is no mention of the tornado that passed through Nashville this week. But thank you for all your kind words and prayers as our church and city begin a rebuilding and healing journey we didn’t ever expect.)
