It’s my birthday week so this podcast is just some of my favorite things! 🙂
First up, Dave Barnes and Aaron Chewning are back to talk us through the final 8 teams of the World Cup and who is gonna win this whole thing.
Then, my friends and co-workers Maggie and Eliza bring some of the questions that you guys asked during the TSF Survey we put out in May. Friendship, God, singleness, church, Starbucks order. We only covered about 10 of the 3000 questions, but we got a good start. 🙂
Happy 4th of July week and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME week and Happy Summer, friends!

As my college pastor at UGA’s Wesley Foundation and my pastor for a season at RiverStone Church, Tom Tanner is one of the most influential voices in my life. Tom and Melissa are on a short list, after my own parents, of people who have had the most impact in my life and growth. And I think that is true for hundreds of my friends, including some that you know- like Tyler Reagin from Catalyst and my pastor Kevin Queen.
We are living in a world where people walk away from their faith and the church fairly often, and sometimes people fall so deep into their own sin it costs them their ministry all together. I wanted to know how to do this faith life for the long haul and TOM AND MELISSA DID NOT DISAPPOINT.
Settle in for a conversation that just may change some things for you… and give you a reason to make a phone call to someone who has influenced your life, too.
Write Tom a letter!

What a joy to have such a strong, insightful, and fun woman on the podcast with us today! Kate Bowler is a brilliant writer and communicator and we really dig into some of the hard things going on in her life right now. This conversation is special. For sure. She’s honest and kind and a real joy to hang out with. Her new book, Everything Happens For A Reason: And Other Lies I’ve Loved, really moved me and is worth the read. You’re gonna love being friends with Kate.
