Happy Hour #233: Lisa Leonard
My guest for The Happy Hour # 233 is Lisa Leonard. Lisa is a momma, author, and business owner. Together with her husband Steve, they built a thriving jewelry business, Lisa Leonard Designs. Lisa and Steve have been married 20 years, and have two boys, David and Matthias. Steve and Lisa live in California and her first book, Brave Love, came out in January!  Lisa and I start off the show talking about how she started her business. Lisa then opens up about how she felt like the true Lisa was disappearing in efforts to accommodate others. I appreciated her honesty when she spoke about the fear of rejection she felt when she decided that she wouldn't hide the true Lisa anymore. Lisa and I then talk about what it's been like parenting a special needs child. You will love hearing her story of how God prepared her heart for having a special needs child in the most incredible way through a non-verbal second grader.  Lisa also shares about the grief she's been through. I think we can all relate when you hear her speak of the struggle of confronting dark places of grief instead of putting on a happy face and pretending we're okay. At the end of the show, I had Lisa do something I've never done on my show - read aloud from her book! I loved hearing her words, and I know you'll be encouraged to live life with Brave Love.  Connect with Jamie Facebook // Twitter // Instagram // YouTube Sponsors Bolster Sleep - use code HAPPYHOUR for 10% off Joy Bird - use code HAPPYHOUR for 25% off Third Love - get 15% off your first order GET ALL THE LINKS FROM THE SHOW HERE
Happy Hour #232: Jonathan Pitts
  My guest for The Happy Hour # 232 is Jonathan Pitts. Jonathan is the Executive Pastor at Church of the City and husband to my friend Wynter Pitts, who God called home July 24, 2018. Jonathan and Wynter have four daughters, and on the show today I had the honor to talk with Jonathan about what life has looked like since her passing. Jonathan starts off sharing how the ministry Wynter started, For Girls Like You, is continuing and growing. We then get to hear so many incredible stories of how God has shown Jonathan and his family that He's always been with them as they've walked this road. He talks about learning how God is with us in the present, and because of this truth it is possible to grieve and experience joy in the same space. My faith was so encouraged listening to Jonathan speak about hope amidst suffering. I was reminded that even when there is pain now, it is not wasted. God can use all things for His good and His glory, and there is joy coming in the end because of the cross. Friends, I loved Wynter and am so honored to get to share Wynter's life. If you aren't familiar with her and her ministry, please check out the links from the show - I know you will be encouraged, inspired, and pointed to Jesus.

Happy Hour #231: Nicole Walters
My guest for The Happy Hour # 231 is Nicole Walters. Nicole is a former six-figure corporate executive who woke up every morning feeling stuck in the life she built for herself. Using her corporate skills, she took to the internet and built a multi-seven figure business showing others how they can build a life they love. Nicole and her husband reside in Atlanta and are parents to their beautiful girls.  You guys, Nicole is a rock star with her business, but what I think you're going to love about our conversation today is her encouragement that we can let our light shine no matter where God has placed us. Nicole and I start off the show talking about her first side hustle that began with shaving her head, plus more side hustles all leading to a live stream of her quitting her corporate job. Nicole also shares how in the midst of all of that craziness, she and her husband came to adopt their three daughters. Nicole then opens up about her faith journey and what it's been like to be a "faith-forward" business owner. I loved hearing her speak about how her faith is simply how she does business. In our culture where we may feel uncertain how to share our faith, Nicole encourages authenticity, honesty, and vulnerability. I think she summed it up pretty well when she said, "If I can tell you what type of undies I wear, why can't I tell you I pray."  Connect with Jamie Facebook // Twitter // Instagram // YouTube Sponsors Nations Photo Lab Prints - Get 15 Free Square Prints with code HAPPYHOUR15 Bolster Sleep Company use code HAPPYHOUR for 10% off Prep Dish - $4 for a Month-long trial GET ALL THE LINKS FROM THE SHOW HERE!
Happy Hour #230: Margaret Feinberg
My guest for The Happy Hour # 230 is Margaret Feinberg. Margaret is a Bible teacher, speaker, author, and leader at conferences such as Catalyst, Thrive, and Women of Joy. Her books, including The Organic God, The Sacred Echo, Scouting the Divine, Wonderstruck, Fight Back With Joy, and their corresponding Bible studies, have sold more than one million copies and received critical acclaim. Margaret lives in Salt Lake City, Utah with her husband, Leif, and their superpup, Hershey.  You guys, I learned so much from my conversation with Margaret that I just can't stop thinking about! On the show today, Margaret and I talk about her journey across the world as she dove into learning about certain foods from the Bible and examining them in light of Scripture. Margaret shares so many amazing stories, each of which opened up the Scripture to me in a brand new way. I especially loved hearing her tell how the Lord led her to fish in the Galilee. What began as a short trip to find a fisherman, turned into spending Passover with the fisherman's entire extended family!  In every one of her stories, the insight she learned about these different foods provides even more insight into the Bible and what God is teaching us. It's truly amazing, and I know you will be as blown away as I was.  Connect with Jamie Facebook // Twitter // Instagram // YouTube Sponsors Nations Photo Lab - use code HAPPYHOUR15 for 15 free square prints!

Happy Hour #228: Jen Wise
  My guest for The Happy Hour # 228 is Jen Wise. Jen holds an MA in Theology from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and serves as a child advocate with Compassion International as a part of their Artist and Speaker Team. Jen is happy to spend most days rotating between friends, family, writing, cooking, her neighborhood yoga studio, and being an active part of her home church.  Jen and I start off the show talking about how we're all walking around exhausted! It doesn't have to be this way, and Jen gives us practical tips on how we can lessen the weight we all feel, all the time. I loved hearing her share about how her own process of letting things go, and fully resting in the grace God has provided. We also chat about friendships, and how in different seasons it can be hard to prioritize, but that it's possible to continue to nurture those relationships. In the second half of the show, the topic of control takes center stage, and we also talk about eating right, getting enough sleep, and all those "taking care of yourself" things that we tend to push to the side. Don't worry friends, our conversation isn't about shaming - it's just the opposite. Jen encourages us that loosening our grip, trusting God more, and taking care of ourselves, helps us live the meaningful life God intends.  {You can listen to the show HERE, and make sure you never miss a Happy Hour by subscribing through your favorite podcast app (ie. iTunes, Stitcher).  And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends!} Links from the Show Jen's Website Jen's Book: The Bright Life Voxer The Quest by Beth Moore Seamless Bible Study by Angie Smith What Jen's loving: Cam & Jeff, Fordite nail polish, Keds by Kate Spade, everything at Madewell What Jen's reading: Awed to Heaven, Rooted in Earth: Prayers of Walter Brueggemann, It's Not Supposed To Be This Way by Lysa Terkeurst, and Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing by Sally Lloyd-Jones Lysa Terkeurst on The Happy Hour Sally Lloyd-Jones on The Happy Hour The Story of God's Love for You by Sally Lloyd-Jones Come join The Happy Hour on Patreon If You Only Knew Connect with Jen Twitter// Instagram // Facebook Connect with Jamie + The Happy Hour Twitter // YouTube //  Instagram // Facebook   Sponsors Yes, I'm Hot in This by Huda Fahmy Pardon the Mess Podcast LOLA - get 40% off with code: HAPPYHOUR40   See all the links from the show HERE

Happy Hour #227: Rachel Joy
My guest for The Happy Hour # 227 is Rachel Joy. Rachel is a pastor's wife, mom to four and the Founder & Executive Director of Sparrow Women. Sparrow Women exists to catalyze the next generation of reconcilers. Rachel is a believer in strong coffee, long dinners, and spontaneous dance parties. On today's show Rachel shares the story of how she came to start Sparrow Women and the Sparrow Conference. Rachel and I talk about what it was like for her when she first started to dig deep and ask questions about racial equality, reflect on her own privilege, and examine how the world is truly set up. I love how Rachel says we are all Kingdom Cultivators, but to do the work, we must first understand what God's kingdom is.  Rachel and I discuss how the topic of racial harmony and reconciliation can seem overwhelming at first, and she provides some first steps to take. Rachel also honestly shares how the walk can be messy, the conversations difficult, and we're not promised that it will be easy. But, we are called to be peacemakers and reconcilers, and with Christ, it is possible.  {You can listen to the show HERE, and make sure you never miss a Happy Hour by subscribing through your favorite podcast app (ie. iTunes, Stitcher).  And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends!} Links From the Show Sparrow Women Sparrow Conference 2019 - Use code: HAPPY for special discounted rate!

Happy Hour #226: Lysa TerKeurst
My guest for The Happy Hour #226 is Lysa TerKeurst. Lysa is a #1 New York Times bestselling author of over twenty books, international speaker, and the president of Proverbs 31 Ministries. Her passion is teaching the Bible in vulnerably realistic ways that help others personally engage with God by connecting His truth to their everyday lives. You can find her most days writing from her sticky farm table in Charlotte, NC and enjoying life with her husband Art and the families of her 5 grown children. You guys, I cannot think of a better way to start off The Happy Hour in 2019 than this episode. Get your tissues and your pen and paper ready for this one. Lysa and I start off the show talking about how she began working with Proverbs 31 Ministries. Lysa tells us about writing her latest book in real-time as her world was turned upside down by a marital affair, and being diagnosed with significant medical issues. We talk about being in the "messy middle" place of life, and the importance of creating safe spaces and community to discuss disappointment in our lives. Lysa speaks about how God helped her hear His truth so she could face her fears, leaning on friends' faith when we feel so shaken, and the struggle of when our feelings and faith come in conflict. Lysa tells us how it wasn't clear to her how this story would end, but she realized redemption is available now, whether there's reconciliation or not. She speaks such encouragement to us when she says, "Redemption is based on my choices - I can choose to have redemption with God today." {You can listen to the show HERE, and make sure you never miss a Happy Hour by subscribing through your favorite podcast app (ie. iTunes, Stitcher).  And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends!} Links from the Show Lysa's Website Proverbs 31 Ministries It's Not Supposed to Be This Way Uninvited Suzanne Stabile's The Enneagram Journey Podcast The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel van der Kolk, MD What Lysa is loving: Having her book Uninvited on an episode of This Is Us, this season of life with new possibilities, What Lysa is reading: The Cozy Minimalist by Myquillyn Smith Connect with Lysa  Facebook// Twitter// Instagram Connect with Jamie + The Happy Hour Facebook // Twitter // Instagram // YouTube Join The Happy Hour party on Patreon Want to stay connected to The Happy Hour? Subscribe to The Happy Hour Newsletter!

Happy Hour #224: Amy Wolff
My guest for The Happy Hour # 224 is Amy Wolff. Amy is a TEDx Speaker Coach and Executive Coach for a consulting company she co-owns with her father in Portland, OR. She accidentally started a global movement in 2017 through simple yard signs. But what currently thrills Amy the most is engaging in difficult conversations with unlikely friends and leading teams to Rwanda to experience the global family of God. Amy and I start off talking about jealousy and how this show almost didn't even happen. Amy gives us some great tips about speaking, whether that's at Sunday School, at the PTA, or in front of a large crowd. We then talk about grief and the loss of her brother Jeremy. Amy talks about how it has influenced her life, and the peace and wrestling with God she has experienced. In the second half of the show, Amy tells us how she and her family decided to take action using yard signs when they learned of the suicide rate in their area. What began with driving around asking neighbors if they could place a sign in their yard, has turned into a global movement. We also learn about an unexpected friendship with a witch (yes friends, a witch) that has provided the opportunity to have difficult conversations publicly, but done so in love. And lastly - because we discussed  all the things on this show! - we talk about sin, looking at our own sin, and how it influences how we love people. {You can listen to the show HERE, and make sure you never miss a Happy Hour by subscribing through your favorite podcast app (ie. iTunes, Stitcher).  And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends!} Links from the Show Distinction Communication Don't Give Up Signs Love Does by Bob Goff The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown  What Amy is loving: Mindy Mae's Market DoubleHood, Noonday Collection, Sour Patch Kids new mango flavor What Amy is reading: Letters to the Church by Francis Chan, The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, New Seeds of Contemplation by Thomas Merton Connect with Amy  Facebook // Instagram Connect with Jamie + The Happy Hour Facebook // Twitter // Instagram // YouTube Want to stay connected to The Happy Hour? Subscribe to The Happy Hour Newsletter!

I love you both! Jamie Grace has been an inspiration to me. At 38y I'm single, never married, and her insight about singleness has been encouraging! Finally someone is saying the things I've been saying for so long!!! Great podcast ❤️

I am a long-time listener of several like-minded, WONDERFUL, podcasts (Jamie, Jessica H., Jen H., and others) and as I landed on Jamie's episode with Rachel, I almost said, "Nope, not today," but not at all because of the content. I saw the summary first... six beautiful kids... married to her highschool sweetheart... and some days, it seems like I'm the only one in the trenches, single with two intense kids, screwing up daily but trying to do better every day. I feel like I'm the only one still trying to make it to the party. But I did listen, and I WAS BLESSED. God spoke to me through Rachel and her story. I've been focusing on what I perceive to be missing instead of what I've been blessed with. In addition, this episode actually came on while I am driving to ATX for my third session of EMDR. I was so encouraged by this episode for so many ways. Thank you for popping me back into socket, ladies!! Much love ❤️
