HH #645 Some of Our Favs: Reading While Black with Esau McCaulley

2/16/2024
Due to an unexpected crisis, Jamie will be delaying her book publicity and tour. She will also be taking a break from social media, public appearances, and recording podcasts until she has had time to process, discern, and recover. The best way you can show Jamie your love and support is to listen to these pre-recorded shows and share with a friend. In today’s show, Jamie and Esau chat about how important it is to sit, read, and listen to stories and experiences that may not affect us. We always have an easy way out of conversations that don’t directly impact our lives. But Jesus calls us to compassion and empathy and to love one another through joys and pains. We love the reminder from Esau that everything we need to love one another well is in scripture - what a blessing it is that we truly have the answer. Esau McCaulley is an associate professor of New Testament at Wheaton College in Wheaton, IL. He is the author of many works including Sharing in the Son’s Inheritance and How Far to the Promised Land. He is a contributing opinion writer for the New York Times and his writings have also appeared in places such as The Atlantic, Washington Post, and Christianity Today.

HH #642 Why Can't I Get It Together: Defining Your Reality

2/2/2024
CLICK HERE TO PRE-ORDER WHY CAN'T I GET IT TOGETHER You guys! My newest book is coming out THIS MONTH!! I'm so excited about it, and for a few reasons, I feel like this is my best book yet! I love the minds that came around to help write this book and I love how practical it is! Over the next few Fridays you'll hear me talk about the meaning and purpose behind each part this book is broken into. This week is Part 1: Defining Your Reality. Too often I found myself comparing my life to someone else's. I imagine I'm not the only one who has done this. But how can we compare when our realities are so different? How can a 26 year old mother of toddlers possibly compare her life to a 47 year old mom of four teenagers? How can a stay at home mom compare where she's at in her career to a full-time working mother? It's just not fair to anyone when we do that. We have to look at our own lives and circumstances and define what our reality is in this season. We must ponder on the areas of life that feel out of control, and allow Jesus to come in and have his way! I can't wait to go through Part 2 with you next Friday!

HH #638 January Bonus Series - New Year, Same You with Nicole Unice

1/12/2024
As we wrap up this four part series, New Year, Same You, I want to acknowledge that not all of us are looking forward to the year. Some of us have crawled into 2024 still feeling like we are purely surviving, still grieving the losses of 2023, and still healing from the damage done. You know better than anyone that just because it’s a new year, it’s not a new you. In part 4 of this series I discuss these unique challenges with the author of Not What I Signed Up For, Nicole Unice. As a pastor and community leader. She is the author of several books on healthy faith, honing in on the connection between our emotional and spiritual life. She’s the host of How to Study the Bible, a popular weekly podcast that reaches people in 188 different countries in the last year alone, and preaches frequently for conferences and churches. She makes her home with husband, Dave, in the historic Fan district of Richmond, VA with their three almost-grown children and two pups. Nicole knows loss, grief, and failed expectations and as she emerges from that season she has a great word of encouragement for all of us. She challenges us not to miss the God-opportunities that are right in front of us, even in the hard, and to lean into truly living a life of faith through trusting God’s purposes.

1/10/2024
Have you been following Jesus for a while and maybe have become disillusioned with it all? Maybe you’re someone who has needed to detangle your faith and the beliefs you were raised under. What if all of that was because of the ways we’ve been formed by modern western Christianity, and not by Jesus himself. In today’s episode John Mark Comer shares with us how we can truly be in relationship with Jesus, become like Jesus over time, and then do as Jesus did in our life. John Mark Comer is the founder of Practicing the Way, a nonprofit designed to create simple resources for church communities around the world.

HH #633 Relating with God with Skye Jethani

1/3/2024
Happy New Year friends! We are so excited for 2024 and all that it holds for us! Several months ago I read a book and immediately knew I wanted to start off 2024 on The Happy Hour with the author. Have you felt like you do a lot for God, and you still feel disconnected? Do you ever feel like you are reading your Bible all the time, and doing all the right things, yet still live in so much fear? Do you find yourself desperate for control? If any of that is you, you are not alone! On today’s show Holy Post Podcast Host and author, Skye Jethani challenges us to stop living our life under, over, from, and for God, and start living life with him! An award-winning author, speaker, and co-host of the Holy Post Podcast, Skye has written more than a dozen books and served as an editor and executive at Christianity Today for more than a decade. Raised in a religiously and ethnically diverse family, his curiosity about faith led him to study comparative religion before entering seminary and pastoral ministry. With a unique ability to connect Christian thought and contemporary culture, his voice has been featured in The New York Times, USA Today, and The Washington Post, and he’s spoken to audiences throughout the world as diverse as the U.S. Naval Academy, The Chautauqua Institution, and the Lausanne Movement. You guys, if you’re anything like me, this conversation may start off with a lot of conviction, but hang in there! There is so much hope in all of this too! Skye reminds us that from the beginning of time God has shown his people patience and grace while he waits for us to simply come be with him. SHOW LINKS: With What if Jesus was Serious About Heaven?

HH #631 December Bonus Series - Biblical Hospitality with Bri Strensrud and Matthew Soerens

12/15/2023
Last month I had the opportunity to go to the Mexico/United States border with Women of Welcome and World Relief. A group of friends and Happy Hour listeners joined me and we had the opportunity to gain proximity to those who were living the experience of immigration, as well as meet with pastors, community leaders, and border patrol officers to learn more about this issue. This was my third trip and I still walked away immensely impacted by the stories shared. In this month's bonus series you'll hear from two leaders who led the trip and a few voices from those who attended. On the final episode of this three part series, I have a conversation with the leaders of the trip, Bri Stensrud and Matthew Soerens. Bri Stensrud is an author and human dignity advocate who leads a nationwide Christian women's community called Women of Welcome. The community is dedicated to diving into the whole of scripture to understand God’s heart for the immigrant and refugee in an effort to live out biblical hospitality in an authentic way. Matthew Soerens is the Vice President for Advocacy & Policy at World Relief and the National Coordinator of the Evangelical Immigration Table. He’s the coauthor of several books including Welcoming the Stranger: Justice, Compassion & Truth in the Immigration Debate and Inalienable: How Marginalized Kingdom Voices Can Help Save the American Church. He lives in Aurora, Illinois with his wife Diana and their four kids. Immigration may be a topic that has been politicized, but I believe it's a topic that is close to the heart of God and should be important to every Christ follower. My prayer as you listen to these episodes is that you'll be filled with questions and the desire to learn more about what God's Word says on this topic. I pray that we are moved to be compassionate and loving to all of our neighbors.
