37: Jonathan Merritt | Learning to Speak God



On today’s episode we’re chatting with our new friend, Jonathan Merritt. Jonathan is an incredibly gifted faith and culture writer whose published more than 3,000 articles for outlets such as the New York Times, USA Today, Washington Post, and CNN.

We chat with Jonathan about his journey moving from the Bible Belt to New York City and how he found himself struggling to engage people in spiritual conversations who didn't speak the “christianese” he was used to in the South. If you've ever found yourself in an “in between” season, wrestling through difficult questions, or maybe walking closely with someone who is, this conversation is for you. We were so encouraged by the truth that Jonathan shares and cannot wait for you to hear it. Enjoy!

35: Neil Tomba | Conversations that Matter



On today’s episode we’re talking with Neil Tomba. Neil has served as the senior pastor for 17 years at one of the most well known, well loved churches in Dallas, Texas, Northwest Bible Church. Years ago, a huge dream was born in Neil's heart when he discovered two of his greatest passions : having conversations about Jesus, and spending time in the great outdoors.

Neil decided loving Jesus meant more than just listening to sermons every Sunday, it meant taking risks and sharing the Jesus he loved through conversations with others. In June 2019, Neil will be cycling across the United States where, along the way, he intends to engage in conversations about faith and Jesus with individuals from all walks of life. We know you'll enjoy diving into Neil's story and hearing the birth of this courageous dream.

34: Meshali Mitchell | Restoration



On today’s episode we’re talking with our good friend and world renowned photographer, Meshali Mitchell. Meshali is known for her incredible gift of capturing the heart and soul through her beautiful portraits, which is why she’s one of the most highly sought after photographers around, shooting everyone from Sadie Robertson to Priscilla Shirer, Rebekah Lyons and more.

We chat with Meshali about her leap of faith out of a corporate job, pushing past fear and bringing her photography dream to life. We had the incredible honor of recording this conversation on location at the beautiful 1886 Farmhouse Meshali is restoring and hearing how God has led Meshali out of her comfort zone again and back out on the water for this new project #ahousgodisbuilding. Friends, you’re in for such a treat today (and get ready for the sweetest southern accent you’ve ever heard.) Enjoy!
