Episode 126- Chasing And Laying Down Dreams with Dianne Jago
35:12

We've all seen the messages, presented in pretty fonts- "Don't let anything stand in the way of your dreams. Don't apologize for what you want. Pursue it at any cost. And never, ever quit."

What what does God say about our dreams and passions? What does dreaming look like when seasons, roles, and our capacity changes? What does dreaming look like as a mom raising kids? What role DO our passions and dreams play in God's Kingdom?

Today, our guest Dianne Jago shares her personal story and boldly points us back to the plum line of scripture. She tackles how changing the world may depend more on what we are willing to lay down than chase and how putting the first things first may lead us to a life far beyond what we could ever dream.

Episode 119- God Remembers Us with Ellie Holcomb
33:22

It’s overwhelming how much has happened in just a few short weeks, especially for my friends in Nashville. When I got on this call with Ellie Holcomb just a week before her book launch—we had no idea that a devastating tornado would tear through a city we both love dearly and no idea that we’d be facing the fear of a global pandemic. In the wake of all the news, Ellie’s book launch was a little delayed but even with all the chaos—the message couldn’t be more timely. Don’t forget to remember! Although this is a children’s book and album—don’t we all need this right now more than ever? God loves us and wants to draw us near. One line of Ellie’s book says, “on glad days and sad days God’s near and He knows—he can use any storm to make good things grow.”

I’m so grateful for Ellie’s reminder and joy today and her obedience to work on a project in her busy season of motherhood that will encourage us all.
