81: Bre Robinson - Be Gone, Fear

“You need people speaking into your world and believing in you. You need people who encourage you but also a person who’s willing to pull you up out of your stuff when you’re going through hard things.” I’m so excited for today’s episode because my guest is Breanna Robinson, an absolute light and joy and there’s so much to say about her that I’m just going to get right to it.

80: Jonathan Pitts - Emptied

“The opposite of love is not hatred, but indifference.” Elie Weisel If you’ve been here for a while, know that we don’t usually interview men on this show (Quick shout out to past guest guys like Joel Smallbone and Van Moody). Most of our guests are female because one of our main goals is to highlight positive role models for girls and that means, most of the time, those role models are women. But we’re switching things up for today’s show, and I’ll tell you right now -- this one’s gonna be a tough and emotional one for me. When Brent and I got started in ministry and trying to impact girls, come alongside and support them to walk in their God-given identities, we started to reach out to a lot of different people mostly because we were entering uncharted territory for us. We had both spent time working in the professional world. So we started to branch out and build relationships with lots of people all over the place – church leaders, people in the book publishing and medi...

79: How To Shine Bright This Christmas

Rooney and I stopped by HomeGoods a few days ago to get some Christmas placemats for our kitchen table. It took all but five seconds before she abandoned our hunt and went meandering down the toy aisles that were overflowing with ‘stuff’. She walked with purpose up and down each section, pointing out toys and games and figurines and dolls and cribs for the dolls and strollers for the dolls that were all going on her Christmas list. Hold on a second. In our house, we haven’t really decided on the Santa thing in general. She asked me about it last year and I told her the truth. “The people who love you have purchased these gifts for you. Now, let’s write our thank you notes.” We don’t really have a clear-cut approach to this whole Santa business, but we definitely have not discussed writing out an entire list of things we want for ourselves. Moms, even though we battle cultural norms DAILY -- like selfishness over service-- can we still be intentional about flipping the focus t...

77: Erin Weidemann - See A Need. Take Action.

"See A Need. Take Action." My guest for today's episode is absolutely no one. Friends, it's just me. I wanted to discuss a topic that's been on my heart for the last several months. Over the summer I was asked to write an article for the Christmas issue of World Vision magazine and talk about how all of us can do something powerful in the world when we operate from a place of radical generosity. As I brainstormed what to write about, I thought about a sweet little book Rooney has in her room about St. Nicholas of Myra. We read it here and there throughout the year, but now it carries a special meaning for our family this holiday season. The book tells the story of the 4th century Christian bishop who inspired the Christmas gift-giving character of Santa Claus. Born in Patara, a land that is part of present-day Turkey, circa 280 A.D., a man left with a large sum of money when his parents passed away used it to help the poor. After his own death in 344, the legend of his generosity gr...

Christy Fay: Your Soul On Fire

“Jesus is everything. The faster you figure out that you can’t do it on your own, and that you need him, the far better off you’ll be.” Today’s guest is Christy Fay. Alongside her husband, Christy co-pastors Arcadia City Church in the Phoenix area. She loves seeing people engage with Jesus and their communities.

Other than her role as God’s daughter, image-bearer, and Kingdom warrior, she feels most proud to be a wife and mom. She’s the author of two studies, Reclaimed:Uncovering Your Worth, which centers on the five women in the lineage of Jesus and I Have To:Chasing What Sets Your Soul on Fire, a journey through the Scriptures that helps us find that “thing” that God designed us to do. Christy discusses the challenges she faced during her younger years and how they prepared her for life as an adult...
