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.

Here’s the thing. I saw Black Panther and I loved it. Then I saw Avengers: Infinity War and I loved it. So you know what sounded fun to ME? Learning more about these superheroes that most of y’all already know and love. And my buddy Tyler Huckabee is just the guy to teach us…. well, me.
So stick around for some incredible thoughts on writing, faith, and superheroes, and where all those worlds collide.

Possibly the most creative person I have ever known, Andrew Peterson is a songwriter, singer, author, filmmaker, farmer, and pretty much a billion other things. He’s just significantly cooler than me, which you’ll know soon enough.
If you’ve been around here for a while, we’ve been talking for a long time about one of Andrew’s songs- The Sower’s Song- the one that got me going about myrtle a few months. And we talk about it today on the show- along with writing fiction, Nashville, gardening, songwriting, and the massive role Andrew played ten years ago in my writing career.
His Resurrections Letters albums are just brilliant. I think you are going to love them.
Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on this episode!
