2016 Christmas Party Episode 3: Ann Voskamp

on December 8, 2016 in That Sounds Fun Podcast with no comments by

She is the calm voice in a crazy holiday season. Ann Voskamp is just purely one of the best women I know. Her writing is soothing and her voice is as well. Y’all know my volume level and crazy level- so I’m always worried that I’m gonna stress Ann out to the max. But our friendship is good for both of us, as you’ll hear in the podcast. Hope you enjoy this continued Christmas party episode!

2016 Christmas Party Episode 2: She Reads Truth + Advent

on December 1, 2016 in That Sounds Fun Podcast with no comments by

There are two major season celebrated in the Christian calendar – Advent and Lent. (There are more days and weeks and etc., but these are the two big boys of the calendar every year.) She Reads Truth and He Reads Truth do a beautiful job every year of inviting us to celebrate and reflect on the meaning of both Advent and Lent.

I haven’t been a lifelong Advent celebrator, so I thought I’d invite Amanda and Raechel to sit down with us and talk us through Advent- what it means, what it is about, how we celebrate, why we celebrate. So I hope you’ll enjoy this part of the Christmas Party!

2016 Christmas Party Episode 1: Living With Landyn + Decorating For Christmas!

on November 23, 2016 in That Sounds Fun Podcast with no comments by

Landyn Hutchinson on That Sounds Fun Podcast

I decided to throw a Christmas party. And I want you to coooooome!

(And yes. I know today is the day before Thanksgiving. But sue me I am ready to talk Christmas.)

Here’s the thing. I LOVE DECEMBER. A bunch of us do. And the dream of my holiday would be to throw a Christmas party that all of y’all can attend. Sadly, my home would not even come close to holding us all (but I’d sure try).

So instead? I’m throwing a podcast party. Every Thursday in December, we’ve got a podcast episode coming your way, all Christmas themed, some fun surprises, and jingly background music from our pal Dave Barnes.

Obviously, in order to throw a party, you gotta decorate. So my friend Landyn Hutchinson, better known as Living With Landyn, popped into the studio and helped me sort out some of my decoration issues. Mainly, I tend the decorate every corner of my living room but ignore the rest of the place. BUT NO LONGER THANKS TO LANDYN!

So whether you are traveling today or just spending a few minutes alone on the treadmill before family life really kicks up, I hope you’ll let Landyn and I hang out with you and talk Christmas!!

(If you aren’t already subscribed to the podcast, today would be the day to do that so you don’t miss anymore of the Christmas party!)

Mo Isom is such a treasure. We grew up in the same town and some mutual friends connected us a few years ago. We sat over coffee for hours at our hometown coffee shop and talked and Talked and TALKED. It was one of those absolutely instant friendships. And I adore her still. Her book Wreck Your Life is one of my favorites of 2016. Her story is incredible and her voice is fun and this podcast is one of my faves.

That Sounds Fun Podcast Episode 18: Bianca Juarez Olthoff

Bianca Olthoff on That Sounds Fun

Well I just pure love Bianca Olthoff. She’s just one of the best. A dear friend. A powerhouse preacher. The friend who reminds me to wear heels on stage and take headshots more often. 🙂 She’s amazing.

Many of us have been BEGGING Bianca to write a book for years. Literally. But man was it worth the wait. Bianca’s new book, Play With Fire, is absolutely a gold mine. You will be so glad you bought it, read it, underlined the MESS out of it, and keep it near to you as a resource.

Most of our podcasts we actually record live in person because I LOVE sitting across the table from the friend when we are talking. But Bianca lives in California and RUDE she wouldn’t fly here to Nash. 🙂 But the truth is, we talk on the phone more than we see each other in person, so you’re probably getting the truest version of our friendship here. So congrats to us all. (HA!)

Hope you enjoy this one!

That Sounds Fun Podcast Episode 17: Jeremy Cowart + The Purpose Hotel

on August 11, 2016 in That Sounds Fun Podcast with 2 comments by

Before I was a writer here in Nashville, I was a nanny. Like, a full-time Mary Poppins kind of nanny. Like five days a week, let’s go on adventures, should I just move in here? kind of nanny.


Jeremy Cowart and his family quickly became like family to me and I have loved knowing them and seeing as God has grown their family and influence and dreams in the last few years.

Most recently, Jeremy has launched an incredibly awesome (and crazy!) idea called The Purpose Hotel. And- one of the parts I love- we get to be involved. Like, you can be a co-founder of a hotel chain.


So I brought Jeremy on the podcast this week because I wanted you to meet him and hear about the hotel. Hope you’ll enjoy it and be a part!

Here are the things we discussed on the podcast:

— Jeremy Cowart

Help Portrait

— Shannon Cowart

Kyle Chowning


The Purpose Hotel


See University

Garth Brooks

Trisha Yearwood

That Sounds Fun Podcast Episode 16: Harris III

Harris III on That Sounds Fun

About three years ago, I spoke at a teen conference in Gatlinburg, TN. I was excited about it because I absolutely love that part of the world- East Tennessee- and I love any chance I get to go over there to do ministry. My buddy Chris Wheeler was at the same event at at our first session, we met Harris III and his wife Kate. I pretty much immediately begged them to be my friends.

You know that thing where people are just a natural fit in your life? That was Kate and Harris for me.

I’ve loved seeing his career grow and shift and he’s just pretty much awesome at everything. I got to be on his podcast recently as well, so we’re just going all sorts of tradesies around here!

Hope you enjoy this conversation with Harris (AND KATE!) and be sure to check out Story Gatherings.

Here are the things we chatted about on the podcast:

– Harris III
