117: Johnathan Pitts | Navigating Grief and Loss



Today we’re so excited to welcome our friend Johnathan Pitts to the show.  Johnathan is an author, speaker, and executive pastor at COTC here in Franklin, TN. For years he served as the director of the Urban Alternative which is the national ministry of Dr. Tony Evans in Dallas, Tx.  Jonathan has co-authored two books alongside his late wife, Wynter Pitts. He is also President of For Girls Like You Ministries, a ministry for tween girls and their parents. 

In this conversation, Johnathan shares the highs and lows of his story, which has been quite a whirlwind over the last few years.  Just after celebrating 15 years of marriage to his wife Wynter, in the summer of 2018, Wynter passed away unexpectedly in her sleep. Johnathan shares his journey of grief and loss, how the Lord has carried him over the last few years, navigating life with his 4 daughters, finding their new normal, and trusting God for their future. This was such a beautiful, rich conversation with Johnathan. We were so blessed by the lessons he shared from his story. We can’t wait to share it with you.

116: Shauna Niequist | Finding Beauty in a New Season



Today we’re so thrilled to welcome Shauna Niequist to the show. Shauna is the NYT’s best selling author of books such as Present over Perfect, Bread & Wine, and Savor. We sat down with Shauna to unpack her latest book (one of our very favorites of 2022) entitled, “I Guess I Haven’t Learned that Yet.” Shauna shares her journey of navigating life in a season of big change, about learning to let go, remake your life, and what it means to start over with curiosity and self-compassion.

This interview was one for us that could not have come at a better time, after navigating a similar move across the country with little kids, just before COVID, we just needed every. single. word. So, we can’t wait for you all to hear Shauna’s incredible story and the wisdom she shares along the way. No matter where this finds you today – we hope this conversation will be as helpful to you as it was to us! So, without further ado, lets jump into today’s conversation.

Here’s Shauna.
