Culture, Sex, and Confession with Tim Ross – Episode 862

BUCKLE UP Y’ALL. I think you’re going to love this conversation with Tim Ross. We talk about everything! Contentment, sexuality, seeking purpose over understanding, and living a life for Jesus. I really appreciate Tim, the work that he does, and his honesty. His new book Welcome to the Basement is a great read and would make a great gift for a friend! I enjoyed this conversation a ton and I can’t wait to have Tim back on the show!

And just a note for those of you that may have miniBFFs listening along, we also get into some conversation regarding singleness, sex, and dating that is probably best for grownup ears and not for miniBFF ears, so just keep that in mind.
