S2E10 - Ben Stuart - How to Struggle Well
S2E10 - Ben Stuart - How to Struggle Well
I loved this conversation with Ben! Not only is he intelligent and knows the Bible really well, he also has a huge heart for people and wants them to experience an abundant life with Jesus. Since he recently released his book Rest and War, I knew I wanted to have him on the show to unpack some of the topics from it. He walks us through practical strategies and tactics to make war on what is destructive in our lives and rest in the God who loves us. This is one that you definitely don’t want to miss!

S2E9 - Tsh Oxenreider - A Journey into Easter
Tsh Oxenreider is an author and podcast host of “A Drink with a Friend.” I wanted to bring Tsh on the show because she recently released a devotional called “Bitter and Sweet: A Journey Into Easter.” It’s all about the history of Lent and why the Global Church celebrates through fasting leading up to Easter. She shares about her own personal journey through the liturgical traditions and encourages those who have never observed the liturgical calendar to give it a try - it’s greatly enriched her family’s life!
