    April 11, 2024 Honest Faith and Honest Movie-making with Laura Osnes - Episode 876

    My lovely friend--Broadway star, singer-songwriter, and actor--Laura Osnes shares a behind-the-scenes look at being IN the scenes of a movie. More than that, she’s so generous with the sweet and the difficult aspects of the story that has brought her here. We all have those right?! Laura helps us engage the good and the hard with honest faith, and it’s such a gift. Her new movie Just In Time is absolutely well done, a fun watch, emotional and thought-provoking. I can’t wait to hear what your favorite moments are! And be sure to vote for her country song “Getaway” in the International Songwriting Competition!

    March 21, 2024 Humility and the Unknown with Dr. Joel Muddamalle - Episode 872

    After reading Dr. Joel Muddamalle's new book called The Hidden Peace, I knew we HAD to have him on to talk about the Gospels as we prepare to head into Holy Week.  He is just so brilliant and I can't wait to hear your thoughts after you listen! We talked about the divine humility of Christ, walking through instead of getting over, and where Jesus went on Holy Saturday. This conversation has me thinking about SO many things as we go into Holy Week!
    As a reminder, we won’t air anything here on That Sounds Fun next week, but we’ll be back with you on Monday, April 1st. We also kick off our Let’s Read the Gospels Guided Journal Book Club that day… so make sure you’re subscribed to Let's Read the Gospels, grab your Guided Journal from your favorite book store, and join the Facebook group.

    March 11, 2024 Discernment and Decisions with Emily P. Freeman - Episode 869

    You guys I am SO happy I get to talk to my longtime and one of my dearest friends, Emily P. Freeman. Her brand new book releases tomorrow! How to Walk into a Room: The Art of Knowing When to Stay and When to Walk Away. WOOF. This is such an important book and I think you're going to love this conversation. We talk about the different types of endings, connecting with God in your own unique way, and we spent a lot of time processing with Emily our decision to end the Let's Read the Gospels Podcast this year. Making hard decisions is never fun, but I'm so grateful to have a friend like Emily that can help guide us. She's just so brilliant and I think the world of her.

    March 4, 2024 Believing the Unbelievable with Dr. Nijay K. Gupta - Episode 867

    Our friend and one of our favorite theologians around here, Dr. Nijay Gupta, is back! If you're like me and geek out when talking all things Scripture, I think you're really going to love this episode. Not only is Dr. Nijay a professor of New Testament, but he’s also a senior translator for the NLT Bible, the New Living Translation, which we’re using for the month of April on Let’s Read the Gospels. So clearly this is our guy for all our questions! Today we talked about the first Christians being so different from Roman culture, the mystery of God and time, and the reputation problem of Christianity. Dr. Nijay is just so brilliant! Be sure to grab a copy of his newest book, Strange Religion: How the First Christians Were Weird, Dangerous, and Compelling.

    February 29, 2024 Annie + Eddie Recap 2015 - Episode 866

    We’re taking things back to 2015 with our good buddy, Eddie Kaufholz. If you missed the news, each month this year, in honor of our 10th Anniversary of That Sounds Fun Podcast, Eddie and I will be reviewing each year the podcast has existed. We’re going to talk about what happened in the world, the top songs and movies, and what happened in our own lives…this is going to be an adventure back to all the things we forgot and all the memories that have stuck with us too. Did we actually recap 2015? Not really. Did we have a fun and wacky conversation as Eddie and I always do?? 100%!
    Check out our 2014 recap episode.

We’re going to talk about what happened in the world, the top songs and movies, and what happened in our own lives…this is going to be an adventure back to all the things we forgot and all the memories that have stuck with us too. Did we actually recap 2015? Not really. Did we have a fun and wacky conversation as Eddie and I always do?? 100%!

    February 26, 2024 Friendship & Poetry with Audrey Elledge and Elizabeth Moore - Episode 865

    I love getting to have conversations with friends and fellow writers who inspire me. Audrey Elledge and Elizabeth Moore are such a gift! I've loved their book Liturgies for Hope and their brand new book Liturgies for Wholeness is just as beautiful. We talked all about the origin of their friendship, how they ended up in New York, and writing in communion with God. I adore them and I think you're going to love this conversation!

    February 22, 2024 Feeling Worthy with Jamie Kern Lima - Episode 864

    You know what I LOVE? Getting to talk to my up-close friends on the show! I genuinely could not be more grateful for my dear friend Jamie Kern Lima. Her brand new book, Worthy is so important and so good! This conversation is all about feeling like we're not enough, or feeling stuck, and ultimately, the difference between self-confidence and self-worth. Jamie is one of the most generous and thoughtful people that I know and I could just not be more proud of her.

    February 19, 2024 God's Mercy with Savannah Guthrie - Episode 863

    Y'all already know my new friend Savannah Guthrie, co-anchor of the TODAY show (umm yes. THAT Savannah Guthrie!!), and now author of her first non-fiction book Mostly What God Does. You guys. I read this book SO FAST. It's SO GOOD! I'm just impressed with her honesty and venerability. Savannah and I sat down in New York and had the best conversation all about her journey with writing this book, seasons in our relationship with God, and talking opening about Jesus in our day-to-day lives. I felt so honored to get to know Savannah and I know y'all are going to love her.

    February 15, 2024 Culture, Sex, and Confession with Tim Ross - Episode 862

    BUCKLE UP Y'ALL. I think you're going to love this conversation with Tim Ross. We talk about everything! Contentment, sexuality, seeking purpose over understanding, and living a life for Jesus. I really appreciate Tim, the work that he does, and his honesty. His new book Welcome to the Basement is a great read and would make a great gift for a friend! I enjoyed this conversation a ton and I can't wait to have Tim back on the show!
    And just a note for those of you that may have miniBFFs listening along, we also get into some conversation regarding singleness, sex, and dating that is probably best for grownup ears and not for miniBFF ears, so just keep that in mind.
    . . . . .

    February 12, 2024 Lent & Fasting with Dr. Darren Whitehead - Episode 861

    As y'all know, I LOVE the Christian calendar! Since we kick off Lent in just two days, I wanted one of my favorite pastors, Dr. Darren Whitehead, to come on the show and teach us about what it looks like to sacrifice, celebrate, and fast during this season. We talk allll about the power of fasting, distraction versus utility, and what it would look like to embrace a digital fast. I think this conversation is so helpful and important! Darren's new book The Digital Fast is an amazing resource for you, your family, and your community. You can find more of Darren's resources at thedigitalfast.com.
    Make sure you head over to our Patreon community Single Purpose League (and join in if you haven't yet!) to hear the rest of mine and Darren's conversation about doing a technology fast and creating healthy boundaries with our phones when you're single.

    February 8, 2024 Persistent Obedience with Nick Connolly - Episode 860

    One of my favorite pastors, Nick Connolly is on the podcast today to teach us the difference between persistence, resilience, and perseverance, how to endure in ministry, and when to say no. Nick’s brand new book Don't Give Up Just Yet is so honest and helpful! I’m just so grateful for Nick as he teaches us what can happen when we wait for the abundant promises God has for us.

    January 29, 2024 Singleness in the Church with David Platt - Episode 857

    Today is an exciting day over here at AFD Inc! Because we’re launching Single Purpose League TODAY (make sure to click the link to find out more!!), we wanted to have a real conversation about being single in the church… because…well… it’s a whole thing. There’s a lot of beauty to it, but there’s also a lot of hurt, misunderstanding, and disappointment, so we invited my long-time friend, Pastor David Platt back on pod, so we could have an honest conversation about how singles can thrive in their church, what conversations we could be having with our pastors and church leaders (and vice versa) and how we help single people not feel invisible. If you're single, be sure to check out Single Purpose League over on Patreon and become a member so you can listen to more of this conversation. Today’s episode was a WOWIE ZOWIE and I’m so thankful for David’s insight and honesty.
    Are we now a Mike Kelsey fan pod?! DUH. Watch Mike Kelsey's installation at McLean Bible Church and listen to our Spotify playlist of every Mike Kelsey TSF episode.

    How are we this lucky to have a January full of our favorites?! Michael Wear is back on the pod to walk us through how to prep in prayer for this election year, being involved in politics without making it our identity, and telling us about the greatest kitchen tool ever made (does it have something to do with ravioli?...MAYBE). Michael's newest book, The Spirit of Our Politics is such a good read! So helpful. Be sure to grab a copy for yourself and another for your pastor, spiritual leader, or friend. This is a great book to help us walk into this year together.

    December 21, 2023 Chasing Curiosity with N.T. Wright - Episode 513

    I am SO honored to get to talk to the brilliant Dr. N.T. Wright and I've been dying for y'all to hear our conversation. Dr. Wright is one of the world’s leading New Testament scholars, so you know we talked a lot about the Gospels! We also talked about the connection between holiness and hope, making yourself a part of the Biblical story, and of course Paul. Dr. Wright's newest book called Into the Heart of Romans is so helpful! I feel incredibly lucky that we get to talk to Biblical scholars like Dr. Wright and learn from their wisdom.

    December 11, 2023 The Measurement of Time and God with Matt Maher - Episode 510

    Today on the show is a guest y'all have been asking for for a long time…Matt Maher! This is such an incredible conversation that I think you're going to love. We talk all about Matt's Catholic faith, the structure of the Church, Advent, and so much more! This is FOR SURE a note-taking episode. I learned so much!! If you’re looking for another Christmas song to add to your playlist, you’ve also got to check out Matt's latest single, Go Tell It (Gloria) which also features Dwan Hill and The Choir Room (three of my favs in one song?? YES PLEASE).

    December 7, 2023 Living with Purpose with SuperChef Darnell Ferguson - Episode 509

    Y'all. This might be one of my favorite conversations we’ve had all year! SuperChef Darnell Ferguson (or Supe now that we’re friends...) is a Food Network favorite of mine and I absolutely loved our conversation. We talked all things Sneaky Jesus, honoring our bodies, and having a purpose bigger than a dollar. It’s so fun to cheer for someone working in the mainstream public-life world who has such a cool faith story too. If your kids love learning to cook or you love cooking together as a family, SuperChef has a fun new cookbook, SuperChef Family Cookbook out for those little superchefs in training and this would make such a great gift for my miniBFFs!

    December 4, 2023 New York, New York with Ginna Claire, Mary Kate, and Meredith - Episode 508

    Today on the show are my New York City besties: Ginna Claire Mason Moffett, Mary Kate Morrissey Blake, and Meredith Toering! We all sat down a few days before I left New York just to recap my two months of living there. Yes, I loved it and yes, I cried. These friends were the catalyst behind me even thinking about moving to New York for a little while so this was so fun (and sad too) to just rehash how it all played out with three of my best friends.

    November 30, 2023 The Beauty and Complexity of Israel with Kristi McLelland - Episode 507

    Oh friends, you know I love when we get to talk about the Gospels and today is one of those days! Kristi McLelland is one of my favorite Bible teachers. She’s also an incredible resource when it comes to learning more about Israel. I think you're really going to enjoy this conversation. We chat all about reading the Bible through a Western lens, pursuing a calling while taking care of our family and community, and what's going on in Israel right now. Kristi's newest book Rediscovering Israel is incredible. I've never seen a book that better reflects the experience of Israel and helps you do deeper research into it. I love it SO much and I think you're going to love it too.

    November 20, 2023 The Kindness of Jesus with Lisa Harper - Episode 504

    I know y’all love my dear friend, Lisa Harper, and CAN YOU BELIEVE she hasn’t been on the show since 2017?! Y’all. We were clearly long overdue to catch up over microphones and talk about my favorite subject. Jesus. What are some of the characteristics of Jesus? Can we love our Bibles TOO much? And does God really call us to contentment? Lisa's newest devotional: Jesus: A Scandously Devoted, Conspicuously Uncool, Super Transparent Homage to Who Our Savior Is and How Much He Loves Us is beautiful and so inspiring! Did I mention that it would be the perfect gift for someone this Christmas? I'm just saying.

    November 16, 2023 Sacred Assumption with Faith Eury Cho - Episode 503

    Gosh, this conversation is one of those thought-provoking, note-taking, mind-blown kind of conversations. My friend, Faith Eury Cho, just released her debut book called Experiencing Friendship with God. This book is beautiful and I think you're really going to love getting to know Faith and learn from her. We get to talk about feeling tired in our lives and our walk with Jesus, how to know when the Holy Spirit is growing something within us, and befriending the presence of God. I just adore Faith and I know you're going to love listening to her talk about the Lord and the Holy Spirit (ME TOO)!

    Today on the show I get to talk with my friend Natalie Grant. Y’all LOVE her and so do I! She is no stranger around here and her brand new album, Seasons, is out now and Y’ALL. Have you listened to it yet!?! IT'S SO GOOD! Okay...I could not have loved this conversation more and y'all just aren't even prepared for Natalie's story about Dolly Parton! Not only did we talk about all the amazing collabs that happened on Natalie's new album, we also talked about longevity, our partnership with the Lord, and how to identify soul exhaustion. 
    Can you guess which song from Seasons I added to my AFD's Friday Fav's Spotify Playlist?

    November 9, 2023 Living in a Season of Joy with Jana Kramer - Episode 501

    I’m so excited to have my friend Jana Kramer here! And y’all. I’m so proud of the way she shares her story with such honesty and vulnerability in this conversation and in her latest book, The Next Chapter. Today we’re talking about what her life has looked like post-divorce, her journey with motherhood, the questions she’s asking God, and what she’s learning about freedom and redemption. Because we’re talking about some tender parts of her story, it’s probably best for you to listen to this before any of my miniBFFs do. Jana so graciously opened up about what she’s walking through when it comes to church, faith, and some of the tough parts of it. I think you’re really going to love the honesty in this episode, and I feel really honored that Jana would invite us into her story this way.

    November 2, 2023 Episode 499: Brooke Ligertwood on the Uniqueness of Worship on This Side of Heaven

    Brooke Ligertwood is truly one of my very favorite guests and friends, and man, I'm so grateful that she sat down with us to talk about why worship here on earth matters, cultivating an awareness of God's presence, and experiencing spiritual warfare in the midst of ministry. Brooke's newest album EIGHT is SUCH a good album that I know you're going to love just as much as I do. Every conversation I have with Brooke, I leave feeling strengthened and encouraged in my faith and I am just so thankful for her wisdom.

    November 1, 2023 AFD in NYC Episode 5: Savor This

    Anticipation is actually one of the gifts of my personality type--I love the days before an awesome thing often as much as I love the thing. But it really works against me in seasons like this. Where I feel the time, the days, the experience, slipping through my fingers. Time moves fast sometimes. I’m feeling that here. I cannot slow time. But I can savor the minutes, days, weeks, months I have here. I’m trying.
    If you missed the story of why I moved to New York for a couple months, be sure to listen to AFD in NYC Episode 1, AFD in NYC Episode 2, AFD in NYC Episode 3, and AFD in NYC Episode 4.

    October 31, 2023 Episode 498: Blurry Creatures with Nate Henry & Luke Rodgers

    Y'all. I have NO CHILL about this episode. Today on the show I get to talk to my friends Nate Henry and Luke Rodgers who are the hosts of the Blurry Creatures podcast. Their podcast is truly one of my favorites and I've been dying to share it with you guys. Today's conversation is all about how they started the podcast, their experience talking about blurry creatures and spiritual warfare, and of course I HAD to ask them my burning questions about megalodons (you get it...), and about Jesus and the disciples talking about ghosts. It is so.good. Now listen, I know this may not be your thing, but it 100% is what sounds fun to me and I think you’ll find this episode really interesting!

    October 30, 2023 Who Are You Following? Let’s Talk Social Media with Devin and Hunter Cordle - Build Your Board Series

    Today on the show we finish up our Build Your Board series with Devin and Hunter Cordle. As we’ve talked about making sure you’re choosing who is influencing you in a world of influencers, we couldn’t wrap up this series without talking about social media. When we’re thinking about building our board, what role does social media get to play? It includes a lot of voices, so how do we figure out the right boundaries for social media as well as finding ways to learn from people who both think like us and those who don’t? If you’re not familiar with Hunter & Devin (known as The Cordle Family), go look them up on social media right now because they’re just a bright spot on my feed! This is such an insightful conversation that I think you're going to love!

    October 27, 2023 Do My Relationships Need a Coach? (with Janice & EJ Gaines) - Build Your Board Series

    As we wrap up this week, we are coming to a close on our coaching conversations. And gosh, this week has been SO. GOOD. Y’all LOVED Janice Gaines when she was on the pod during our Summer Lovin' Series. So of course we had to have her back! And this time, her husband EJ Gaines, joined us as well to help us figure out if our relationships need a coach. Whether you’re married, dating, engaged, or single, a relationship coach may be the person you need to help you navigate the season you’re in. I think you’re going to love their wisdom and guidance today as we figure out what our relationships need.

    October 25, 2023 What Even is a Life Coach? (With Christy Wright) - Build Your Board Series

    Y'all. I'm having the BEST time this week talking about all the different kinds of coaching. Today's conversation is with my friend, Christy Wright. Christy is a certified business coach and personal development expert, and today we’re talking all about life coaching. What does a life coach even do? And how might one be able to benefit us? We talk about life balance and expectations, feeling disconnected from our bodies, and defining goals and seasons (Christy giving us permission to set a goal to have more fun?! Um...DONE!). Christy is just brilliant and I think our conversation is so helpful as we think about whether or not the next right voice we need is a life coach.

    One of my best friends, Rachel Cruze, is BACK on the show and I’m just having the best time talking to ALL my friends this week about coaching.

    My friend, Amanda Tress (founder and CEO of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss) is here today to help answer the question, "How will a health coach help me?" We also go SO much deeper as we talk about where our spiritual health and physical health meet. To be clear, this is not an episode about going on diet or the size of your body.

Micah and Shireen Eldridge are two of my favorite pastors who are trusted, faithful friends of mine that I know are praying on my behalf. And as we talk about who might be missing on your board, it maybe a person (or people) who you know are consistently praying for you and want to know when there’s something going on in your life that they can be praying about. We’re going to talk today about what that looks like and why it all matters.
    Be sure to stick around here tomorrow on TSF for a special 10 minute bonus conversation with Micah and Shireen as they answer the question, "What if I want my pastor to be on my board?" It's going to be another good one!
    For a full list of all the resources from our Build Your Board experts go to anniefdowns.com/buildyourboard.

There are pages to take notes for every episode and questions to walk through and process, so that by the end of the series, you will have a completed resource AND the answer to the question--who is the NEXT voice I need to help me build the life that I want?

    October 18, 2023 Episode 497: Seth & Amber Haines About Their Journey With The Deep Down Things

    This is one of those conversations that will meet you right where you are no matter what you’re walking through and is an invitation to think truly and critically and kindly about your own story and your own faith. Today's conversation with Seth and Amber Haines fits right in as we're thinking about the voices in our lives, our spiritual growth, and our spiritual leaders. We talked about participating in hope even when you don't feel it, how to disciple kids in the midst of pain caused by the church, and why Catholicism was the next right thing for the Haines family. Seth and Amber's book The Deep Down Things is absolutely beautiful! It made me laugh and cry and ALL THE THINGS! I'm so thankful for the Haines and their honesty about their journey of faith.

    October 16, 2023 Whose Board Are You On? (With Becca and Harley) - Build Your Board Series

    In our last Build Your Board episode,  you got to hear from my mentor, Nancy, who disciples me, and today you get to hear from Becca, who I disciple and Harley who Becca disciples. It’s like this little family line of discipleship! Here’s why we wanted to do this… so many of you guys talk to me about wanting these kinds of relationships in your life, but aren’t sure where to start or what to do.  We thought it’d be fun to bring on both Becca and Harley, so we can talk about what discipleship practically looks like for all of us. As followers of Jesus, we all have a calling to go and make disciples, so we’re going to break down what that looks like for me and Becca and Harley. I feel so honored to be in this stack of women and am grateful for each of them!

    October 9, 2023 What’s the Deal with Counseling? (With Melanie Rogers) - Build Your Board Series

    We're continuing our Build Your Board Series with today's episode all about counseling! I'm honored to have Melanie Rogers from Come Alive Counseling with us as we talk about how to know if we need a counselor, what a spiritual director is, and what to do if counseling doesn't fit within our budget. She is one of my favorite therapists and I'm so happy I got to sit down with her! I know some of you are ALL IN on counseling and others of you are unsure or uninterested, and I think this conversation will be like a “counseling 101” starting place to help all of us figure out the role therapy can play in our lives.

    September 25, 2023 Episode 494: Dr. Scot McKnight on When You Feel Like Your Church Is Falling Apart

    Today, I have the honor of getting to talk with Dr. Scot McKnight. I know talking about the church falling apart does NOT sound fun...but it's such a needed conversation right now. So many of us have been or are currently in a complicated spot with a church. Dr. McKnight teaches us about hope, pain, and leadership. Y'all know I also LOVE a good Gospel conversation and this does not disappoint! I think you're really going to love learning from him. His latest book—co-written with Laura Barringer—called Pivot, which is such an important read if you’re a pastor or church leader or a business leader. It is a helpful, hard, beautiful book.
    We begin the conversation talking a good bit about church hurt and if this is a part of your story, this episode may be tender to you. I wanted you to know beforehand so you can take care of your heart.

    September 18, 2023 Episode 491: Dr. Anita Phillips on Why We Feel the Way We Feel About How We Feel

    Y'all are in for a TREAT! This is a special and vulnerable conversation with Dr. Anita Phillips. She is so wise and honest and I loved our conversation about how emotions reveal what we need, the importance of loving our bodies, and what to do with heart pain. I know, I know...I probably should thank you for participating in my counseling session...Dr. Anita's book The Garden Within is extraordinary. Truly. Her book goes so much deeper than what we had time for in this episode and I'm telling you...this is the book you need in your life. If you want more of Dr. Anita's voice in your life (I know I do!) be sure to check out her podcast In the Light with Dr. Anita Phillips.

    September 15, 2023 Episode 490: Matt Redman on the Truth and Sacred Mystery of Worship Music

    Y’all. This one. Such a special conversation with my friend Matt Redman. I definitely cried at the end while I thanked him for years of music that have so deeply impacted me. We talk all about how to stir up mystery and reverence during our worship, the difference of Christianity between Western and Eastern cultures, and OF COURSE we talked about Matt’s latest album, Lamb of God, (which is just extraordinary). If you haven’t heard this album yet, you’re going to love it. And gosh, I wish we could have chatted for 3 more hours! I’m so grateful for Matt and the impact he has had in my life and in the world.
    For more info on the Worship and Theology Conference Matt mentioned, go to Worthworship.com.

    September 14, 2023 Episode 489: Madi Prewett Troutt on Choosing Purity and Pursing Holiness

    Today on the show, I get to talk with my friend Madison Prewett Troutt. Her new book, The Love Everybody Wants is an empowering message about where we go to find love. I'm really enjoying opening up these conversations after our Summer Lovin' Series around dating and sex, and what that looks like right now. We also got to talk about God's peace and coming into relationships out of an abundance rather than scarcity. I'm so grateful to Madi for sharing her story with us!

    Oh friends. This is your friendly heads up that this is a MAJOR note-taking episode! The brilliant Dr. Alicia Britt Chole teaches us about the night originating before sin in Eden, what the Gospel says about our capacity, and how to do grace well. It's also a very special conversation about the Gospels that I know you're going to love. Make sure to grab a copy of Dr. Chole's latest book, The Night is Normal. It's incredibly beautiful and I hope you will not just read it, but sit with it. I'm so thankful for this conversation and the kindness of Dr. Chole!

    August 17, 2023 Episode 481: Dr. Russell Moore with an Important Challenge to the Church

    It's always an honor when Dr. Russell Moore joins us on the podcast! And GOOD GRAVY this conversation...Dr. Moore teaches us what it looks like to be an Evangelical Christian today, how nostalgia impacts our view of the Church, and postures we can start taking now ahead of the political election season. I'm always so appreciative of Dr. Moore's wise voice of reason and his ability to speak truth. I think you're going to learn a lot from this conversation and his latest book, Losing Our Religion. Gosh, I'm so grateful.

    August 14, 2023 Episode 480: Hosanna Wong on the Rhythms of Jesus: Scripture, Prayer, Sabbath, and Community

    Y'all. Get READY for this conversation. It's 100% a note-taking episode! My friend, Hosanna Wong is in the studio talking about what God calls you to do in different seasons, finding your identity and abiding in Christ, and what the rhythms of Jesus looked like. Go grab a copy of Hosanna's new book You Are More Than You've Been Told. I've never read anything like it. It's so unique, helpful, and is shaping how I move forward with my spiritual disciplines.
    I loved our conversation on consecration! Here is the sermon from Jon Tyson we mentioned: We Want You Here: The Power of Consecration.

    Ya'll. This conversation is a special one. My friend Steffany Gretzinger is back on the show to talk about her brand new album The Narrow Way, the loss of her dad, and the project she created as a way to honor him called Faith of My Father. (PUDDLE. That's me.) Her work just feels like music we have needed. This conversation is beautiful and hard and I can't wait for you all to hear it. I'm so grateful for Steffany's wisdom and open heart.

    August 3, 2023 Episode 477: Granger Smith on Country Music, Ministry, and How Loss Changes Your Whole Life

    This week marks one year since we lost my nephew, TJ, so it is not lost on me God’s timing to remind me, and all of us, of what He can do with grief and loss. You are going to love getting to know country-music star Granger Smith and his story. It’s a story none of us want, but are often faced with. And Granger’s story felt like the exact right one for this week. This conversation is emotional and heavy at times, but it’s also hope-filled a reminder of what God can do with our grief. What He’s capable of restoring and redeeming. His book Like a River is a beautiful resource. It's not easy to talk about loss and I'm so grateful for Granger.
    Just a heads-up, if your #miniBFF is listening along, this may be one you want to hear before you invite them into the conversation.

    Today on this Hall of Fun episode, you get to hear my conversation from Episode 216 with my friend Jo Saxton. She is one of your favorites (and mine!), and this one takes us right back to 2020. Jo and I definitely talk about what it was like to deal with all of the changes and pivots that year. We also talk all about her book Ready to Rise. Jo is just full of wisdom, makes me laugh, and always speaks truth over us, and I just love friends like that.

    Today on this Hall of Fun episode, you get to hear my conversation from Episode 108 with Mary Kate Morrissey Blake and Ginna Claire Mason Moffett. MK and GC are not only two of my best friends, they are also incredibly talented singers, actresses, and Broadway stars who have both starred in Wicked on Broadway AND used to be on the national tour of Wicked together. In all of the shows we’ve done, there are a handful that I consider really sacred and this is one of them. I will never forget it.

He is just so wise and I learned new things even listening back to this 2 years later.

    July 13, 2023 TSF Hall of Fun: Christine D’Clario from 2020

    Today on this TSF Hall of Fun episode, you get to hear my conversation from Episode 260 with Christine D’Clario. I love how Christine loves God and worship, and how she talks about both in this episode. We talk all about spiritual disciplines like prayer and fasting, and her journey with God. And this one was definitely a note-taking episode for sure. This conversation is really special to me, and I can’t wait to hear what you get out of it.
    If you have struggled with infertility, or if you are just waiting for God to do the thing you REALLY want Him to do, this one is for you. We also talk some about depression and suicide. These topics may be tender to you, so I wanted you to know before you listened so you could care for yourself and your #minibffs well.

    July 10, 2023 TSF Hall of Fun: Kevin Queen from 2017

    Today we are kicking off a brand new series called TSF Hall of Fun where we’re bringing back some of our favorite episodes from over the years for you to hear! On this premier TSF Hall of Fun episode, you get to hear my first podcast episode with the Pastor of the Pod, Kevin Queen from Episode 48. This one is so special to me and still to this day makes me emotional just thinking about it. At the time, Kevin was the brand new pastor at my church, Cross Point Church, and he tells the story of how he got to Nashville and Cross Point and it is legitimately miraculous. This story just speaks to God’s kindness, provision, and plan. It’s pretty incredible and I think you're going to love it.

    June 16, 2023 Episode 475: Charles and Cassie Kelley on the Journey to Sobriety, the Power of Connection, and Combatting Shame

    Today is such a special show as we look towards Father's Day weekend. I get to sit down and talk to my friends Charles and Cassie Kelley. You all know Charles from the AMAZING country trio, Lady A. Charles has recently been on a journey to sobriety and he and Cassie were kind enough to share their story. I so appreciate Charles' honesty and transparency and Cassie's strength and generosity in this conversation. Whether Father’s Day brings about a ton of joy for you or it brings up some pain, I hope this conversation gives you a glimpse of what redemption, grace, and healing can do. Be sure to check out Charles' break-up song with alcohol As Far As You Could, it will blow you away!
    (And FYI we jump into a pretty deep conversation about addiction. This topic may be tender to you, so I wanted you to know before you listened so you could care for yourself well. And, for our #miniBFFs, you may what to listen to this conversation before their little ears do.)
    If you or someone you love is struggling with addiction, reach out to Alcoholics Anonymous for support.
    Listen to my conversation with Lady A out on the That Sounds Fun Podcast Tour.

    June 15, 2023 Summer Lovin': Sex + Dating with Kait & JJ Tomlin

    Today on the show is a thoughtful conversation around sex and dating with Kait and JJ Tomlin, hosts of The Heart of Dating Podcast. Navigating sexual desire and healthy boundaries when you are a single person of faith can be really challenging. It's also a really important part of being a human. We tackle some of your most asked questions like, how far is too far, is sex still just for marriage in 2023, and how do we handle shame for what we've done and/or what we haven't done? So many of us feel pain, shame, worry, frustration, and disconnect when it comes to our sexual lives. Our deepest hope is that today's episode will bring you hope and will start a conversation between you and your close people about how you are navigating your sexual life.
    Be kind to yourself as you are listening. And, for our #miniBFFs, this show may be a bit grown-up for their little ears.

    First of all, this is SUCH a good conversation you guys!! Secondly, I am so excited to finally have on the show,  Debra Fileta, a Licensed Professional Counselor who specializes in dating, marriage, and relationship issues. She was the exact right person to join us for this episode along with my friends, Bekah and Lucas! As we continue on through our Summer Lovin' series, today's conversation is all about how dating culture has changed, unhealthy mindsets, and the desire to be married (and sometimes the shame that comes with that).

We are literally DAYS away from leaving on a tour bus headed to our first stop on the Here For You Tour (brought to you by our friends at Africa New Life!) with my pal, Carlos Whittaker.

Since this conversation is about tour and alllll the fun that's on the agenda, Carlos and I thought it only made sense to release this episode on That Sounds Fun Podcast as well.

    "Can women initiate in dating?" 
    “Why is dating so different (and hard!) in 2023?"

    I am so thankful for Ben's wisdom and voice that he brings to the table.

    I've been wanting to sit down and chat with Pastor Kyle Idleman for a while now and I'm so glad we finally got the chance! Today, we talk about how to know when to persevere versus when to say this isn't working anymore, defining the stages of anger, and how connection and confession are tied together. This conversation was so helpful for me! I really appreciate Pastor Kyle and his new book When Your Way Isn't Working. Make sure to grab a copy to read this summer!

    May 15, 2023 Episode 470: Shane Claiborne on What Drives Us, What Love Requires of Us, and Our Mutual Affection for Dolly Parton

    Oh friends, today's show is a good one. Shane Claiborne is a champion for grace and I am PUMPED to get to chat with him on what it looks like to be driven by love and concerned about life, what love requires of us when it comes to violence and hot-button political topics, and what it looks like to be a champion for life without exceptions. Shane's newest book Rethinking Life is incredibly moving and timely. I'm so grateful for a friend like Shane who makes space for conversations like this...chances to keep thinking and learning and growing together.
    Due to the nature of the topics we cover in this episode (gun violence, sexual abuse, abortion, etc.), this conversation may be tender to you so I wanted you to know before you listened so you could care for yourself and your heart well. And, for our #miniBFFs, this show may be a bit grown-up for their little ears.

    May 14, 2023 Episode 469: Mother’s Day with Dr. Nijay Gupta on What Can We Learn about the Relationship Between Mary and Jesus as Her Son and as Her Savior

    A SUNDAY drop in episode?! OK MA'AM! First of all, happy Mother's Day to all the moms and mothering voices out there who mean so much to us and our miniBFFs! I'm incredibly grateful for the women around me who are mothering in SO many ways. We recently got to talk to our friend, Dr. Nijay Gupta back on Episode 464 (be sure to go back and listen if you haven't heard it yet!). And since we talked about women all throughout the Bible, we wanted to save our conversation about Mary, the mother of Jesus for TODAY! I can't say this enough, but I highly recommend Dr. Gupta's book Tell Her Story. I learned SO much from it!

Ya'll...this is a FASCINATING conversation. I can't wait for you to get to know Nijay and hear his wisdom. Nijay's book Tell Her Story is incredible and so important!

    March 30, 2023 Episode 457: Charles Martin and Pastor Joby Martin on Responding to the Miraculous, Prayer, and Jesus' Death and Resurrection

    Our dear friend, Charles Martin is back on the pod with his pastor and friend (but no relation), Joby Martin. We talked about God not answering prayers in the way that we want Him to, what was going on in Judas' mind/heart during Holy Week, and their new book Anything Is Possible: How Nine Miracles of Jesus Reveal God’s Love for You. Also, be sure to check out Charles' new book Son of Man. You know I can't resist a chance to talk about miracles and how well Jesus loves!
    Please note that this conversation was recorded just hours after the recent tragic mass shooting at a Nashville school. We do talk about this tragedy throughout the show, so I wanted to let you know beforehand, in case your heart is tender towards this right now (as is all of ours). We are praying for our friends, family, and community to be able to have space to grieve together and care for one another.
    As a reminder, That Sounds Fun will not release any new episodes during Holy Week next week. We'll see you back here after Easter!

    March 16, 2023 Episode 451: KB on the Truth AND the Love of Jesus, How Our Hearts Can Respond to the Suffering Around Us, and Our Pursuit of God

    Today I get to talk to rapper and new author, Kevin "KB" Burgess. PHEW! You guys...KB is out here PREACHING to us and I could not be happier. We dive in hard on how to keep our convictions of truth while still meeting people where they are with the love of Jesus, deconversion versus deconstruction, and if it's possible to do truth and love on social media. This theme we are seeing lately...the Holy Spirit is really speaking to us as the Church and I'm all ears. KB's first book Dangerous Jesus is incredible. And important. And impactful. Make sure to grab a copy and share one with a friend!
    Listen to KB teach us through Dangerous Jesus by finding the series on Southside Rabbi Podcast.

    March 2, 2023 Episode 446: David Platt on What We Can Do For Unreached People Groups, Developing Muscles for Having Hard Conversations, and What Should Unify Us vs. What Should Divide Us

    He's one of my favorite pastors, authors, and fellow Georgia Bulldogs (GOOO DAWWWGGS!!). David Platt is back on the podcast to talk about unreached people groups, being aware of the history around us and living in light of those things, and what it looks like to honor brothers and sisters who feel differently about experiences than we do. David's newest book Don't Hold Back is incredible. I highlighted, underlined, and cried all the way through it. I highly recommend grabbing a copy to read this weekend!
    Head over to Urgentneeds.org to see the Radical campaign to reach unreached people that David talked about.

    February 23, 2023 Episode 443: Beth Moore on Miracles and Tragedies that are All Knotted-Up

    Oh friends. This is a special one. Beth Moore is a real faith hero of mine and I'm so grateful to Beth for her vulnerability and wisdom in this conversation. Her newest book, All My Knotted-Up Life: A Memoir is poignant and important. It's a beautiful and redemptive story and I am so excited to share it with you.
    (FYI we jump into some pretty deep and tough topics today such as sexual abuse. These topics may be tender to you, so I wanted you to know before you listened so you could care for yourself well. And, for our #miniBFFs, this show may be a bit much for their little ears.)

    One of my favorite worship leaders, Davy Flowers, is on the podcast today and I couldn't be happier! We sat down together and chatted about being all in with Jesus, calling Him friend, and memorizing scripture. Y'all. Davy sang a little for us (TWICE!) and I was beside myself with happy. Her first full length album I Was Loved is absolutely beautiful and made me straight up sob. GAH! It's so good!

    I just love Ann Voskamp. She's a dear friend, the kindest voice, and she teaches us to be brave! We talked about the sovereignty of God, what a day of rest looks like for us, and communion with other people. Also...you know it wouldn't be a proper conversation with Ann if it didn't include chatting about farm life and what books we're both currently reading! Ann's first children's book, Your Brave Song, is so special. And what a great Valentine's Day gift for the miniBFFs in your life!
    (Also, be sure to listen all the way through to the end of this episode when one of you had a very fun surprise for me! Spoiler alert...I love parades!!)

    January 30, 2023 Episode 435: Jennifer Rothschild on What the Gospels Mean to Her and Finding Courage in Studying Scripture

    I'm so happy that I got to talk with my friend, Jennifer Rothschild, about her new Bible Study, Amos: An Invitation to the Good Life. Jennifer carries such wisdom and I cherish her friendship. We got to chat all about the Bible (let's GO minor prophets!), what she learned from studying the book of Amos, and the freedom that follows injustice and forgiveness. I CAN'T WAIT to see her again soon!

    January 26, 2023 Episode 434: Micah Tyler on Why Scripture Matters and the Connection Between the Breath of God and Your Purpose

    I'm so glad y'all loved my first conversation with my friend, Micah Tyler, last summer. ME TOO! I knew we just HAD to have him back. We get to talk all about our favorite podcasts we listen to, the sports we love, and building spiritual muscles. I think y'all are going to really enjoy reading Micah's new book Walking Free (I enjoyed it so much that I wrote the foreword to it!). He's just the nicest dude, and I can't wait for you to hear our conversation.

    This one is about to get up in your business. Mike Donehey, one of my favorite artists, authors, and one of my downright favorite humans, comes on the show and BRINGS THE WORD over and over. Chatting with Mike about forgiveness, peacemaking, and the name of Jesus...gracious this one is gold from start to finish (and speaking of finish... the last 10 minutes of this episode really went off the rails when we all learn about Mike's incredible hidden skill/party trick). Make sure you grab a copy of his new book Grace in the Gray!

    January 16, 2023 Episode 431: Toni Collier on Brokenness, Hope, and Redemption

    I am honored to have my friend, Toni Collier, join us for a conversation about pressing into healing. Toni and I always have such a fun (and loud) time together and this conversation is no different! We chat about the balance between our writing process and healing, divorce, counseling, and the importance of having a diverse community of friendship that surrounds you. Toni's organization, Broken Crayons Still Color is doing some important work and I know you're going to love her new book, Brave Enough to Be Broken. 
    And just a note that this would be a good one to listen through before any miniBFFs are within earshot.

    Oh man. What an honor to have the one and only Santa Claus back in the studio this year. We talked a bit about Santa's shell company, Dolly Parton, the naughty and nice lists, and a new game Santa invented that really got us giggling. In a TOTALLY unrelated side note...Dave Barnes is brilliant and you should check out his new album, Remembering: Greatest Hits Acoustic.
    Grown ups, this conversation got a little cheeky, so maybe proceed with caution if you have miniBFFs around.

    December 8, 2022 2022 Christmas Party Episode 2: Ellie Holcomb on Our Connection with God, the Birth of Jesus, and Joy

    What a gift to have Ellie Holcomb in the studio to chat all things Christmas! Ellie is such a dear and wise friend and I loved this conversation. We talk about what it looks like to ponder and take in the beauty and the good we see, making space to remember, and how to do the Christmas season well (especially with kids). Ellie's new children's book Sounding Joy is ADORABLE and I definitely recommend gifting it to ALL the miniBFFs in your life! Also be sure to check out her album Sing: Christmas Songs as well!
    Be sure to hop on over to my Instagram and comment with what JOY sounds like to you!

    We couldn't let the Christmas season go by without a few fun Christmas Party bonus episodes! This summer, I had the opportunity to visit the set of The Chosen and it was INCREDIBLE. Y'all.

George Xanthis (who plays John), Liz Tabish (Mary Magdalene), Giavani Cairo (Thaddeus), Ryan Swanson (co-writer), Brad Pelo (President of The Chosen), Brandon Potter (Quintus), and Katherine Warnock (Head of Original Content for The Chosen). I can't wait for y'all to hear our conversations and to watch season 3 of The Chosen!

    November 10, 2022 Episode 425: Veteran's Day Conversation with Evan and Dr. Jenny Owens about Loving People Well Who are Dealing with Trauma

    Happy Veteran’s Day (on Friday!) and thank you so much to all the men and women who have served our country and allowed us the freedoms we have today. To celebrate, I got to sit down with Evan and Dr. Jenny Owens, founders of REBOOT Recovery and authors of Healing What's Hidden. Their work with veterans and first responders is truly remarkable and I'm so grateful for their wisdom, education, and humility. May we all lead with grace, vulnerability, and curiosity.
    Parents, just a note that due to the nature of the Owens' work, this would be a good one to listen through before any miniBFFs are within earshot.

    What a true honor to have Dr. Diane Langberg on the show today. Her book, Redeeming Power: Understanding Authority and Abuse in the Church, has taught me so much about trauma, abuse, and power. In this conversation, Dr. Langberg teaches us about paying attention to our own power, misusing that power, and balancing love for our local church with accountability.
    If abuse is a part of your story, I would encourage you to listen with someone who loves you. This conversation may be tender to you, so I wanted you to know before you listened so you could care for yourself and your heart well. And, for our #miniBFFs, this show may be a bit much for their little ears.

What an inspiring  conversation about slowing down enough to be available to God, coming to God as who you already are, and one of our favorite topics - prayer.
    Due to some technological challenges, this episode's audio isn’t typical TSF quality. We’re sorry about that, but we still wanted to bring you this great conversation!

    September 29, 2022 Episode 413: Cynt Marshall CEO of the Dallas Mavericks on Navigating Grief, Joy, and Hope

    My new friend, Cynt Marshall (henceforth dubbed QUEEN of That Sounds Fun Land), is on the pod today and I can't wait for y'all to hear this conversation! Cynt is the CEO of the NBA's Dallas Mavericks (I mean...how fun is THAT?!). Her new book You've Been Chosen is seriously incredible. We talked all about how her cancer journal ended up being a book about hope and joy, and the importance of morning rhythms. Also. Her story about praying over President Obama had me ROLLING with laughter!
    (FYI, we talk about a bit about domestic violence. This topic may be tender to you, so I wanted you to know before you listened so you could care for yourself well. And, for our #miniBFFs, this show may be too grown-up for their little ears.)

    September 26, 2022 Episode 412: Nona Jones on Comparison and Insecurity

    My girl, Nona Jones, is in the STUDIO! Hugging her neck before sitting down to have a conversation meant SO much! We talked all about getting to the root of insecurity, putting on a front that we have it all together (yikes), and setting boundaries around social media. If y'all loved this conversation, you'll love Nona's new book Killing Comparison.
