Y’all, I’m so excited for you to hear this one…especially as we head into Father’s Day weekend! One of our favorite friends (and Dads!), Willie Robertson is in the studio talking all about sharing your faith, connecting people to the Bible, and why we love Nashville. Although Willie might be best known as a member of the Duck Dynasty, he is most passionate about his role as a Gospeler. Over the years, he has shared the Good News of Jesus with others and he encourages us to do the same in this brand new book, Gospeler. It’s such a helpful resource as we keep stretching and growing in how we share the gospel and talk about our faith. I loved how the book of Acts weaved through this entire conversation!

Three words. Cool. Ranch. Dorito. When the creator of the Cool Ranch Dorito says he wants to be your friend, you say DUH. Did I mention he was also the CEO of Taco Bell?? DOUBLE DUH. David Novak is the brilliant mind behind so many of my favorite things so of course we had to have him on the show!

I’d tell you we’re here to recap 2018, but you know we always keep talking about anything and everything. In case you’re just jumping in with us, every month we’re chatting with our good buddy, Eddie Kaufholz and recapping the last 10 years in honor of the 10 year anniversary of That Sounds Fun. We’ve made it all the way to 2018, and this conversation had some surprising and hilarious revelations Eddie didn't see coming. Our recap series will be taking a break for the month of June, (helloooo summer sabbath!) but Eddie will be back in July to talk all things 2019 (or 2019 adjacent things...).

I am always so honored when I get to talk to my friend Latasha Morrison! Her brand new book, Brown Faces White Spaces is such a helpful and needed resource. I'm thankful for Tasha really challenging us to become active participants in the work of restoration and redemption. This book is filled with instruction, correction, and hope. GAH! It's so good! Tasha has been such a gift to so many of us that want to learn, grow, and be a part of this conversation.  TSF Playlist with Mike Kelsey  . . . . Want to watch this episode on YouTube?

Gosh, I loved getting to chat with my friend and one of my favorite pastors, Jon Tyson. I have been really interested in watching how Jon and Jeff Bethke are investing in men and I'm so thankful for the work they are doing. Together, they wrote a fantastic book called Fighting Shadows: Overcoming 7 Lies That Keep Men From Becoming Fully Alive. Jon and I talk about the beautiful encounters we both experience in New York, finishing our lives and ministry on earth well, and how to encourage men to produce Holy ambition and bear the fruit of the Spirit. This is such an important conversation for not only the men in your life, but for all of us!

Ok, y’all know I loved getting to do a deep dive on the Gospels and the book of Acts in April. Well, we’ve got one more conversation to close out that series (FOR NOW)! Today, we’re talking about the book of Revelation. My friend, Pastor Matt Chandler has a brand new book called The Overcomers that I think you're going to love! The book of Revelation can be overwhelming, intimidating, and honestly even scary at times, but Matt talks about how it's actually a message of encouragement, hope, and motivation. I can't wait for you to hear our conversation about what eternity will look like, being a lukewarm Christian versus being a disciple of Christ walking through a desert, and of course our deep dive into the book of Revelation. Gosh, I love getting curious about the books of the Bible!  . . . . Want to watch this episode on YouTube? Head on over to our YouTube Channel and be sure to like and subscribe!  . . . .

I so enjoy his poetic interpretation. I first started listening to his Past the Edges album in 1999. I love it so much. especially 'Smellin' Coffee' and 'Wind and Spirit'.

"Chase fun and joy will follow" sounds somewhat backwards to me. Joy is something we get from focusing and centering our lives in God. As a caregiver, I can tell you that chasing fun is not always an option but joy is always available to those who walk in the Spirit (since it is a fruit of the Spirit). Please evaluate your assertion in light of scripture and let me know how it fits in. I'm not able to see anywhere in scripture that supports the idea of chasing fun leading to joy.

The Little Drummer Boy is one of my favorite songs because I think it's so relatable that we feel like we have to be these amazing humans and bring him gifts and in reality we just have to use our talent and God will be happy and he will smile at us

loved. Loved. LOVED. This episode! Paula speaks truth in terms and boldness I grew up hearing and it was such a refreshing reminder of what it sounds like to be unafraid in the world and of the world. So many Christians, myself included, feel this need to numb down/dumb down what we are saying when we speak of Jesus and Spiritual Warfare. Paula speaks this with God-given authority and THIS IS IMPORTANT!!

David doesn't sound like a guy with arms that are tattooed. I struggle imagining it. His mom should be proud. 😉

what was the Hemingway quote you guys mentioned? I was out running while listening and did not get to write it down. What an amazing podcast this was!

So fun! I loved this episode! Thanks for having Robin Jones Gunn as a guest! Christy Miller wasn't around when I was growing up. Yet, I made wonderful friends in Robin's Susterchick books! They have girlfriends, travel, and soul care! What more could you want? :) Please consider having her back to talk about that series. ♡♡ - Kristin Emily
