75: Max Lucado | Feed Your Faith



If you’ve thought to yourself at any point during this crazy season, “I just wish I could sit down with an older, wiser sage who’s been walking this whole life & faith thing out way longer than I have”…… Well, we’re making your wish come true today. It just doesn’t get any better than our wonderful guest this week …

On today’s episode, we’re chatting with America’s beloved pastor, teacher, and New York Times Best Selling author, Max Lucado.  Max has been in full time ministry for over 40 years, he’s written over 100 books, with 130 million copies in print, his projects have been featured everywhere from USA Today, Fox News, Larry King, and many more.

Max shares with us how to find hope and healing in the mist of so much chaos and anxiety, the importance of feeding our faith rather than our fears, and how we as the Church can begin to view this season as an opportunity to rise up and be the CHURCH we are all called to be.

Wooh, this was one for the books, guys! We were definitely blown away by Max’s humility, authenticity and all around compassion and kindness. We pray this will encourage you as it did us. Listen in.

 

 

A few favorite quotes from today’s episode:

 

“This is the time for the church to stand up!”

“Here’s the question we all need to be asking, ‘God, what are you saying to us through this?’ Each one of us could hear a personal answer to that question.”

“What we may find out through all of this is that we’ve been putting our trust in the wrong place.”

“Every generation has to have its own encounter with grace.”

“If my people, who are called by name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

2 Chronicles 7:14

73: Melanie Shankle | Finding the Bright Side



On today’s episode, we’re chatting with New York Time’s best selling author, Melanie Shankle. We had the biggest blast in this conversation with Melanie. She has written some of my very favorite books, Sparkly Green Earrings,(on parenting), Antelope in the Living Room(on marriage), and Nobody’s Cuter than You (on friendship), and now her latest release, On the Bright Side just to name a few! Melanie is wonderful, hilarious, genuine, and just one of the best story tellers you’ll ever hear! You are in for such a treat today!

We talk with Melanie about finding the courage to get back up when life doesn’t go according to plan, how to discern when it’s time to move onto something new, and how to hold onto joy and gratitude no matter what life throws our way. We may even tackle the roller coaster ride that is parenting teenagers as well! (We can do it!!!)

It’s crazy how God's timing works and how every single week, somehow we need exactly the truth He brings through these conversations, and this week’s episode is no exception! We hope it speaks just as powerfully into your life as well, friends.
Listen in.
