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

Released August 3, 2023 by That Sounds Fun with Annie F. Downs


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.
