All Things Good

By Johnna Hold & Laura Walton

We're just two Southern girls with a lot to say learning to find ALL THINGS GOOD in each day. Johnna is an interior designer living the big city life in Austin, and Laura is a preacher's wife who teaches marketing and sales at Mississippi State and lives on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Pull up a chair or pop in those earphones and get ready to laugh as we cover it all. Parenting, marriage, church and religion, design, teaching, direct sales -- and things we haven't even thought of yet. But we'll end it with ALL THINGS GOOD that we're finding in our lives each week!

Episode 87: Can You Be "Friends" With Your Kids? (Special Guest: ANNA HOLD)
This week is special, y'all. Johnna sits down with her amazing daughter, Anna, for an honest and unscripted conversation about parenting. If you're raising teens or pre-teens, you definitely don't want to miss this. Big "thank you" to Anna for being a part of this ATG conversation and if you're watching on YouTube, there's no video this week because we were both recording from our cars. #committed Favorite things for this week... Johnna: Kitsch Lifting Facial Roller and these super comfy pants for summer! Laura: Truths I Never Told You (Kelly Rimmer) and Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer are the perfect for the summer. We're taking it down a notch for summer (because survival!) and will only be recording for every other week. We'll be back in your feed June 16!

Note that they say “could” and not “should.” Check out this great guide for conversation starters here: https://conversationstartersworld.com/questions-to-get-to-know-someone/ The girls got so into this conversation exercise that they had to break the episode into two parts (shocker!), so join them next week for Part II of the conversation! Happy 4th of July, friends! NOTE: You won’t hear their favorites until next week, but they just couldn’t wait to share them so here’s your sneak peek for next week’s conclusion and their GOOD things! What are they finding GOOD in their lives right now? Johnna has two great reads she’s sharing with us: Stand All The Way Up by Sophie Hudson and An American Marriage by Tayari Jones. Laura’s sharing a great teeth whitening system: Lumineux Oral Essentials (Use WELCOME15 for 15% off your order) and some cute new Bermuda shorts from Calia by Carrie Underwood available at Dick’s…unfortunately they didn’t make Laura’s legs look like Carrie’s!

Episode 57: Covid, Catheters and Conflict...OH MY!
Well, here we are again, friends. Talking conflict. It’s an election year and well, our world feels like a big dumpster fire which means everyone has an opinion about how it started and more importantly, how to put it out. Today, we talk through navigating conflict IRL and on social media during these times with a few solid reminders for keeping our relationships (and our sanity!) and of course, some funny stories along the way! What are the ladies loving this week? Johnna’s loving the Olaplex hair care system (products 4, 5 & 7 specifically!) and the “Big Boo Cast’s” Patreon episode on body image. Can’t we all use those reminders? Laura’s loving her new collapsable rocking chair for all the ballpark fun and has gone all in with her curly hair.

Episode 56: Facing the Fear
It’s great to be back in your feed and the girls are wasting no time jumping into the super light and fluffy topic of FEAR. Listen as they talk through what they’ve found in their research, experienced personally and heard from YOU about how fear shows up in our lives — and how to fight back against it! A few links and resources from their conversation… Circle Maker by Mark Batterson Praying Life by Paul Miller Some of their favorite scriptures for fighting fear… Isaiah 41:10 (ESV) Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. 1 John 4:18-19 (ESV) There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. We love because he first loved us. Psalm 34:4 (ESV) I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. 2 Timothy 1:7 (NLT) For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and self-discipline. Philippians 4:6 (NLT) : Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. What are the girls currently loving? Johnna’s loving Sephora’s Hyaluranoic Acid for glowing skin and Knox McCoy’s new book, All Things Reconsidered.

We get it. Life is weird. We’re being asked to do things that aren’t “normal” or even “comfortable” for us. One of those things, for some of us, may be homeschooling our children. Today, we’re chatting with our sweet friend Julia Jenkins (find her on Insta HERE) who is a homeschool ninja for three beautiful girls — and started her own co-op. She has great insight and ideas for those of us that are less equipped — or just less willing — to tackle this whole new world. Julia’s sharing her favorites with us this week, too. She’s loving Brene Brown’s podcast, “Unlocking Us” (specifically, THIS episode) and her refillable French Wicks candles (grapefruit & mint is her favorite scent!).

Jennifer shares her latest read, The Testaments (a sequel to the super popular "A Handmaiden's Tale" series), and her favorite toothbrush that lets you know exactly when you can stop brushing. Johnna's loving her office renovation courtesy mostly of IKEA and her initial necklace from Nordstrom. Laura has found what she thinks might be the perfect wallet - it holds everything, has a zippered change compartment AND holds her phone, too! WHAT??!

Ok, friends. Hang on to your hats. This one gets deep...fast. Johnna and Laura are diving into the all-too-prevalent topic of church hurt. They have a guest appearance by their favorite preacher -- The Rev -- to help us all understand what it is and how to differentiate between "church hurt" and someone in the church hurting us. And then they share some of your experiences and hurts. It's sad to hear so many people have experienced church hurt, but we are thankful for His receptive power to help us forgive and move forward in our faith. And as always, the ladies are finding the good and bring two of their favorites.

We'd love for you to jump in with your comments and thoughts over on social media after the girls talk through some of the things they struggle with in their lives. They also have some fun things to share this week. Johnna is loving her new stadium-friendly clear bag and the podcast The Clearing, another true crime listen.

Whoa, Nelly! This one was hard. Between the technology blips and the topic, Johnna and Laura had their hands full with this episode. Have you ever disagreed with a friend or family member? IT'S HARD...especially when that disagreement becomes public on the pages of your social media. Listen in as the girls chat about how to navigate disagreement in friendship and they share some sage wisdom from a sweet friend who recently experienced a very public and less-than-pleasant exchange on social media with friends and family over some divisive political issues. Stacy's "Rules of Engagement" are golden -- and we should all be practicing them! Johnna also shares her latest podcast obsession: Confronting: OJ Simpson with Kim Goldman and reflects on how her summer "off" has been a much-needed break from the hustle. Laura shares her new favorite jeans from Amazon: Resfeber Distressed Boyfriend Jeans (light blue wash!) and how the timeline of her finally picking up Bob Goff's Everybody Always is no coincidence in this season of transition and making new friends.  Love this episode?

Last week, we talked guilt vs. conviction...and you still came back this week! YAY! So, we're continuing the discussion and talking shame and regret this week. As we shared some of the areas we experience the most shame and regret, we discovered that we most often struggle when our PRIDE gets the best of us. It's not light and fluffy, but it is real. Cue the vulnerability hangover.  In one of our favorite parts of the week, Johnna shares another great true crime podcast: "Cold" (the story of Susan Powell's disappearance) and her new scrub bath mittens, which are super helpful in the smooth application of her tanner.
