Episode 246: Tyler Merritt

I have been long hoping to have Tyler Merritt on the podcast- you probably know him as the guy from his Before You Call The Cops viral video. I know him as the guy who volunteers in our church’s kids area. We’ve known each other for a while but our friendship grew three sizes today, just in our Hamilton conversation! 🙂

By the way, this is a great conversation for the whole family, but I do think maybe adults want to listen before my #miniBFFs listen as we discuss racism and how to love our neighbors well. We go deep on this convo and I’m grateful for Tyler’s faith and his words.
