My guest for The Happy Hour #305 is Megan Lively. Megan has worked in social media marketing and management since 2008. In 2019, she transitioned away from that and is now using her experience, education, and love for the church to equip the church in the area of social media through Relevant Reach. I first met Megan at an ERLC (Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission) Conference in Dallas where we were both invited to speak. While I was there to talk about how to care for friends as they heal from abuse, Megan was there to share boldly and for the first time about her own story of being raped while in Seminary and the subsequent trauma and retraumatization she has endured and begun to heal from. In today’s episode, Megan shares her story with us much like she did that day in Dallas. We discuss how we process trauma and PTSD, the effects shame has on victims of abuse, and how these events have shaped her relationship with God and with the church. Megan tells us about the healing ways people have responded to her story, like her husband and her pastor and, unfortunately, how she encountered times where “Instead of people viewing [her] as an image-bearer, they viewed [her] as someone who was there to make life messy for the church -- and the church needs to be protected.” Friends, today’s episode is important for so many reasons. I’m incredibly grateful for Megan’s vulnerability, bravery, and willingness to share with all of us today!   My prayer is that if you or someone you know has experienced or is experiencing abuse, you will be encouraged to reach out to a loved one and a counselor. This should not happen to you and it’s not okay. If you are someone who has been told of abuse, I pray that you can be an empathetic listener and take action to support them.
My guest for The Happy Hour # 304 is Jill Dobrowansky. Jill uses her gift of conversation to host the Feed Your Spirit Podcast -- a space where she talks to friends about how God has brought them through difficult seasons and what they learned about God during and after this time. She and her husband Eric eside in New Jersey – where during the summer months, you can find her on the beach with a book in her hands or out for a nice long run. You guys, getting to talk with Jill was SO encouraging! In today’s episode, Jill and I talk about her experience with the Your Story Matters study and how she created the Facebook page, Our Story Matters, to further connect women in the YSM study. Jill shares so vulnerably with us about her own story of her years of running from God and finding herself pregnant at 19. Then, how God showed His love and grace to her by placing steadfast people in her life to care for her deeply. We also got to talk about leading a study like Your Story Matters and how important it is to care for people’s stories well by being an active listener and stepping into difficult or emotional places with them. Jill reminds us that while the enemy might be good at making us feel shameful, God does not judge us. What a gift that reminder is! Friends, I hope today’s episode is as refreshing for you as it is for me! If you’re interested in learning more about Your Story Matters, be sure to go to Jamieivey.com/YourStoryMatters.
As we enter this new decade, I thought it would be fun to talk to a few friends and reflect back on what life was like 10 years ago. In these conversations, you’ll hear guests speak about what God has done in their life, their dreams and goals, things they would have done differently, and things they’re most proud of. And, looking back always causes me to look forward, so we’ll also chat about dreams for the next ten years! In today’s episode, we’re going off the beaten path to celebrate. That’s right, it’s Your Last Decade: Graduate Edition!!  My first guest today is Caitlin Smith. Caitlin is a native Austinite (aka a unicorn!) and a recent Texas Ex. She just graduated with her Masters of Science in Marketing and has been a sports photographer for UT Women’s Basketball. In this episode, Caitlin and I talk about what it’s been like living in a missional community, how “vulnerability breeds vulnerability,” and how we need to learn how to love mercy not just for ourselves, but for others as well! You guys, Caitlin is so wise and I loved our conversation today. She has navigated graduation in such a tricky season and done so with grace and understanding. I love her advice to college-aged women, to “be confident in who you are and who God created you to be uniquely.” In the second half of the episode, I chat with Holly Norris. Holly lives in Georgia with her husband and just graduated from nursing school. She was nominated to be on the show by her friend Amber -- thanks Amber! In our time together, we got to talk about her time in high school and the ways she believed that nursing was out of her reach and how she trusted in God’s faithfulness and that He would fulfill her dreams and purposes. She tells us about how her passion for nursing is driven by connecting with other people and how she loves that she gets to show Jesus to the people she treats and works with. Her advice is to “never feel like you’re less-than...because God’s going to be there with [you]!” so good! I love how clearly God’s steadfastness shines through Holly’s story and how deeply she has embraced it -- it’s so encouraging. Happy graduation to all of the 2020 grads this year! I’m so excited to see your next 10 years!
My guest for The Happy Hour # 303 is Anjuli Paschall. After graduating from Point Loma Nazarene University, Anjuli earned her master’s degree in spiritual formation and soul care from Talbot Seminary. She currently lives in Southern California with her husband and their five children. Anjuli is the founder of The Moms We Love Club and writes regularly for (in)Courage. Her first book, Stay: Discovering Grace, Freedom, and Wholeness, Where You Never Imagined Looking released in March 2020. Friends, getting to talk with Anjuli was such a treat! In this episode, we chat about everything from homeschooling kids and the surprising effects of COVID-19 on our family dynamics to navigating friendship as adults and sitting with difficult emotions, whether that is how we see ourselves in motherhood or the fear of allowing ourselves to truly be seen by those around us. Anjuli also dives into the difficulty and beauty of slowing down and getting to know yourself in place without producing anything. I love when she says, “We’ll never be able to know the love of God in our heart until we’re able to go into our heart. We wonder about that disconnect -- ‘Why do I know God loves me, but I don’t feel God loves me?’ -- it’s because you have to know your heart...so pay attention to the [difficult emotions] you’re resistant to.” Y’all, so good!! To read more of Anjuli’s words, be sure to check out her book, Stay.

And, looking back always causes me to look forward, so we’ll also chat about dreams for the next ten years!   In today’s episode, we’re going off the beaten path to celebrate. That’s right, it’s Your Last Decade: Graduate Edition!! Not only do I have two separate guests, but I also have two different kinds of graduates. My first guest today is EJ Priest. EJ is a recent high school grad from Indiana who was nominated to be a guest by her Aunt Lori! In this episode, We talk about her past 10 years, the challenges she has faced, including her type 1 diabetes diagnosis, and how she has navigated celebrating her senior year in such an unprecedented season. She shares with us how she’s been able to maintain her passion for serving others during quarantine and what it looks like to love others well who might receive a similar diagnosis. I love when she says, “questions don’t offend me, questions show me that you care...and you want to listen.” Sometimes the best way we can love people is by asking questions and listening well. In the second half of the episode, I chat with Christian Huff. Christian is a recent college grad from Auburn University (War Eagle!) and the husband of my dear friend, Sadie Robertson! In our time together, we got to chat about his time in college, how God spoke to Christian in meaningful ways and the effects that has had on his life since. From winning the little league state championship at 12 years old to moving to Louisiana during quarantine, and recently transitioning into marriage, Christian’s past 10 years have been nothing short of eventful. While EJ and Christian might have different experiences and different backgrounds, one thing that is constant between the two is the ways in which God has made himself evident in their lives and is continuing to write their stories. Happy graduation to all of the 2020 grads this year! We at the Happy Hour are so grateful for you!
My guest for The Happy Hour # 301 is Danielle Coke. Danielle is the incredibly talented artist behind @OhHappyDani on Instagram where she makes doodles designed to encourage faith, inspire justice, and guide us as we love our neighbors well. You guys, Dani is one of a kind! In our conversation today, we talk about her recent thrust into the social media limelight with her illustrations that have gone viral in light of recent events. She shares about her upbringing in a Jamaican family in New York, navigating spiritual abuse in the church, and how God redeemed her relationship with Him and showed Dani His true character through scripture. We talk about how to handle the hateful comments on social media and doing the inner work necessary to address bias in all of us. I love when Dani says, “Often surrounding the conversation surrounding race, we encourage people to pull up a seat to the table, to sit with us and join the conversation...but I don’t see this as a table discussion anymore. I see it as a moving train...so please get on board, but know the train is moving...it’s not slowing down.” Friends, I’m so grateful for my conversation with Dani today and I hope you are as blessed by it as I am.

Derek has earned the title of veteran in the game not only as a rapper but also as a producer and businessman. After a decade of making music, the award-winning artist has established himself as a leading voice of hope in the midst of darkness. Friends, Derek is a light and I so enjoyed our conversation today. In this episode, we chat about his last 10 years, starting his own record label, Reflection Music Group, his introduction to the white Evangelical church, and navigating the tightrope of being Black, Christian, and a Hip-Hop artist. He also shares transparently about his struggles in a predominantly white church during the shootings of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Philando Castile, and other Black men lost to police violence. I found it especially moving (or convicting?) when Derek says, “The version of unity that [the church] is asking for always involves the Black people being quiet about their pain and the white people getting to move on.” I am so grateful for Derek’s voice and the way he uses his platform so honestly; the world is better for it.

Hello friends and welcome to The Happy Hour’s 300th episode! Between this milestone and celebrating our 6th birthday in May, it feels like it’s been a big month around here. I am so grateful for my past guests and each of my listeners, I truly couldn’t do this without you. My guests for today’s episode are 4 of my favorite people on the planet -- my kids! Last year, in an episode over on our Patreon Party, my son Deacon predicted that they would be back for the 300th episode, and it has turned out to be more than a little prophetic. In today’s episode, my kids, Cayden, Amos, Deacon, and Story join me to answer the questions that you all submitted last week. We touch on a range of topics including race, adoption, transracial adoption, sex, porn, social media, and faith. My kids share their thoughts about living in a biracial family, tips for how parents can best cultivate open relationships with their kids, and where they each see themselves in 10 years; I’m crossing my fingers for grandkids! You guys, this was such a joy for me to do and I hope this conversation encourages you to talk with your kids, relatives, and friends about topics that can feel awkward or uncomfortable and normalize topics that have traditionally been off-limits.

And, looking back always causes me to look forward, so we’ll also chat about dreams for the next ten years! My guest today is Katie Wussow. Katie is a Christian, wife, mother of two, and native Texan living in Washington, D.C. She is also a business coach for creative entrepreneurs, helping them build profitable businesses that allow them to make a full-time living doing what they love. You guys, Katie is one of my dear real-life friends and I had a great time talking to her today. We talk BIG faith and BIG transitions over Katie’s last 10 years and how God encourages us specifically according to our dreams, ambitions, and paths. Katie dives into how God stripped away all the earthly identities she had invested in to stretch her faith in Him and refine her vision for what she has to offer the world. In this episode, she reminds us that, “There are a million paths and you can only walk the one the Lord is asking you to walk.” Friends, I love this simple encouragement that we can all apply to our own lives. If you loved this conversation as much as I did, be sure to check out Katie’s podcast, The Game Changer.

My guest for The Happy Hour # 299 is Lore Ferguson Wilbert. Lore is a writer on spiritual formation, faith, culture, and theology in life and recently released a book titled, Handle with Care: How Jesus Redeems the Power of Touch in Life and Ministry. Friends, my conversation with Lore today is so rich. She speaks beautifully and honestly about the redemption and attention that Jesus brings to the theology of touch and how that influenced her exploration into this topic and subsequently her book, Handle with Care. We also dive into her fundamentalist upbringing, how that shaped her doubts as a 20-something, and her experience with the gospel. There are so many things that have stuck with me about our conversation, but I especially love when Lore references Aimee Byrd and says that “avoidance is not purity.” The topic of physical touch is so important, especially for those in the church, and I hope you are encouraged by Lore’s words today. Be sure you check out Lore’s new book, Handle with Care: How Jesus Redeems the Power of Touch in Life and Ministry. Handle with Care is the book you need to dive into the theology of touch and know that “somewhere in the mess of our assumptions and fears about touch, there is something beautiful and good and God-given.” Connect with Jamie Facebook // Twitter // Instagram // YouTube GET ALL THE LINKS FROM THE SHOW HERE
My guest for The Happy Hour #298 is Lauren McAfee. Lauren is a speaker, writer, connector, and coffee enthusiast with a heart to engage others in the Bible. With her husband Michael McAfee, she is the author of Not What You Think: Why the Bible Might Be Nothing We Expected Yet Everything We Need. In today’s episode, Lauren and I talk Hobby Lobby, the Museum of the Bible, and getting her PhD in Ethics and Public Policy at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Lauren also shares so vulnerably about her tumultuous path toward motherhood, her family’s adoption story with their daughter Zion, Zion’s cancer diagnosis, and how she tethered herself to the Word. I was so moved when Lauren told the story of her friend reassuring her with Lauren’s own words -- that “even if we never have this longing for children fulfilled, Jesus is enough.” Friends, Lauren has fought so courageously to stay close to God through difficult seasons and she is a great encouragement to all of us that we find contentment in Christ and not our circumstances. Be sure to check out Lauren’s book, Not What You Think: Why the Bible Might Be Nothing We Expected Yet Everything We Need. Not What You Think is the book you need to clear the deck on your preconceptions of the Bible and encounter it anew.   Connect with Jamie Facebook // Twitter // Instagram // YouTube GET ALL THE LINKS FROM THE SHOW HERE

Lyndsey is Ivey Media’s Operations Manager, Podcast Producer, and the reason anything ever gets done around here -- seriously. Today is also her birthday! Make sure you send her some love over on Instagram. This podcast was recorded for our Patreon Party in May 2019 and it’s such a joy to look back and see how things have changed and, now, to chat this week about what Lyndsey is looking forward to in her next decade.  In this episode, we talk about some of the painful things that Lyndsey has walked through in the last 10 years including her dad’s untimely death, the closed doors to pursuing a dream, the struggles of having an auto-immune disease, and how she is fighting for joy and contentment despite life’s difficulties. Friends, I am so grateful for Lyndsey’s transparency and faithfulness. I love when she says that “[God] has been so constant when I have been so distant, and I cannot ignore His constant faithfulness to me in any of the things I do moving forward.” What an encouragement for all of us! I hope you’re as blessed by this conversation as I was.   Connect with Jamie Facebook // Twitter // Instagram // YouTube GET ALL THE LINKS FROM THE SHOW HERE
My guest for The Happy Hour #297 is Paula Faris. Paula is an Emmy-nominated journalist and television correspondent for ABC News. She is known for her tenure as co-anchor of Good Morning America Weekend from 2014–2018 and as co-host of The View from 2015–2018. Y’all, this conversation is the first time I met Paula and it did not take long to know that this lady is the real deal and someone I am so happy to call a friend. In this episode, Paula and I talk about how God asked her to walk away from what the world sees and, if we are honest, what we see as a wildly successful career.  We also chat about imposter syndrome, living in the space of faith and media, and how she’s navigated those waters. Paula is so full of wisdom and I just love when she says that you can’t control what people think of you, but what you can control is your attitude and how you respond to a situation. Because when you’re faced with something difficult, “it reveals your character, it doesn’t define it.”  I adore stories like Paula’s because it is such an example of God's kingdom ways overriding those of the world we live in for now. Paula’s book, Called Out: Why I Traded Two Dream Jobs for a Life of True Calling is available now. And be sure you check out Paula’s podcast, Journeys of Faith with Paula Faris, to learn a bit more about the faith stories of the influencers in our world.

Rhett is married to Happy Hour veteran, Jenn Jett Barrett, who was my guest on the If You Only Knew Miniseries. Together, they live in Springdale, Arkansas where Rhett teaches middle school and loves to travel, scuba dive, and eat good food -- can I get an AMEN? In 2010, Rhett was in a toxic relationship that was ending disastrously and was coming to the close of a decade spent running from the Lord. In this episode, we talk about what it felt like for Rhett to feel far from God, how he turned marriage into an idol and identity, and ultimately, the power and kindness God has to restore both our faith and our hearts. Friends, Rhett’s story is such a beautiful picture of God’s grace for every single one of us and it was an honor to hear him speak so vulnerably and authentically today. I love what Rhett’s dad told him all those years ago --  “When something is wrong, something is NEVER better than nothing.” -- SO GOOD! I think you’re really going to love this episode.   Connect with Jamie Facebook // Twitter // Instagram // YouTube GET ALL THE LINKS FROM THE SHOW HERE
My guest for The Happy Hour # 296 is Samantha Ponder. Sam has been the host of Sunday NFL Countdown since 2017. She is the third host in the 34-year history of the show and the show’s first female host. Prior to joining Countdown, Ponder was a host and reporter on the Emmy-award winning College GameDay for four years and the sideline reporter for Saturday Night Football on ABC. A wife and mother of three, Ponder is a native of Phoenix and currently resides in New York City. You guys, my conversation with Sam has been a long time coming and I’m so grateful we finally got a chance to chat in the midst of all this chaos. In today’s episode, we talk about her love story with husband Christian Ponder, being a woman in a male-dominated field, navigating the public sphere as a Christian, and obviously, our love of football (and the hope we have for a 2020 fall season!). Sam speaks so articulately about approaching headlines as humans and controversy with kindness and respect, without having to sacrifice justice. I so admire her commitment to living and speaking authentically, with both grit and grace. She is such a joy and I just know you’ll love this episode!   Connect with Jamie Facebook // Twitter // Instagram // YouTube GET ALL THE LINKS FROM THE SHOW HERE

Emma Mae is currently a student at Liberty University studying Church Ministry and Women’s Leadership, and get this -- 10 years ago, she was only 11 years old! In this episode, we talk about her experience with cyber-bullying and growing up in the age of social media, what it looks like to seek out and rest in the Word of God, what she’s looking forward to in her 20s, and the idea that our identity is rooted not what we do, but who created us. Friends, Emma Mae is such a ray of sunshine and I hope you feel as encouraged as I do after speaking with her. I loved it when she said, “God will be the same, even in different places.” If you loved this episode, be sure to check out her devotional, All-Caps YOU on Amazon, available May 5th of this year.

My guest for The Happy Hour #295  is Gloria Umanah. Gloria Umanah is the Founder and Executive Director of The Ex-Nihilo Collective, a collective of creatives on a mission to illuminate Jesus through words, poetry, and storytelling. When Gloria isn't leading The Collective, she is known for her powerhouse stage presence as she travels the world to communicate the Gospel and lead in creative directing helping ministries, churches, and communities tell the story of Jesus in a way that the world has yet to hear. Friends, Gloria is such a joy and I’m so happy to share our conversation with you today. In this episode, we talk about her journey with spoken word, her upbringing in a strict Nigerian home, and the ways those things have shaped the woman she is today. I loved hearing about Gloria’s heart for the kingdom and how passionately she believes in the power of surrender. Her reminder that “It’s true, [we are] not enough, and that is enough to be used by God” is so helpful for our current context. Gloria’s passion for the Church is so evident and I hope you feel encouraged by her charge to lean into diversity, not just the appearance of diversity, and seek out the ways you are playing into the story that God is writing. I’m so thankful for Gloria’s giftings and how she is sharing them with the world, and us, today! Connect with Jamie Facebook // Twitter // Instagram // YouTube GET ALL THE LINKS FROM THE SHOW HERE

Wow, and if you think it's painful to go through that empty nest phase KNOWING your children haven't lost their faith, ... you can't imagine the pain of having them drift far away! It's indescribable. REAL hard episode to listen to. 1st because I didn't have the upbringing where my Mom supported me as a mentor. I didn't have to wonder what my Mom felt like when I "left" home for marriage or college. She kicked me out at 17 years old and I had to finish high school on my own. And NO, I wasn't a problem teenager in any way. She was a constantly rebellious "Christian" that lived hedonisticly, ... me being her 6th daughter and her "constant competition with woman" didn't harbor room for a loving mother- daughter relationship. So becoming a Christian myself at 18, and doing the best I could, as I knew how while raising 5 children, ... Well, long story short. Yea, .. a hard episode to listen to. But I 100% agree with what you said. I rarely of ever had women mentors in my life, but desperately needed it. Which is sad, because most of the 2/3rds later part of my life I was surrounded by Christian women. But most were so "cookie cutter" formal, they didn't feel authentic. I picked up the book "How To Pray for Your Adult Children".

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 ❤️
