Episode 21: Art Rainer
We're always looking for ways to find more money, aren't we? That's especially true now as many Americans have either lost their full-time job or can no longer do their side job due to COVID-19. Art Rainer is the author of Find More Money and the host of The Money Challenge Podcast, and we talked about how to do just that. Art has some great insight on how to identify what side jobs are right for you and I like what he had to say about how your side job should compliment with your full-time job, not compete against it. He also talked about how how to steward your money with a Godly approach when you do find more of it. This is an important conversation on its own, but it's especially important as we are in the middle of one of the most difficult financial situations in our country's history with record unemployment numbers. If your job has been impacted by COVID-19, I sincerely hope this conversation helps you and points you in a direction to help you find ways to bring in income. If you missed my conversation with author Daniel Im on Episode 15 about his book on how the gig economy can make us weary and exhausted if we don't use it properly, I encourage you to listen to that because it pairs well with this one in looking at how we can use our side gigs to honor Jesus. Since Art and I talked, the government passed the CARES Act, and Art put together a Q&A on his website that answers some frequently asked questions about it. I think you'll find it helpful as well. I'll be doubling up episodes for the month of April, and every conversation is designed to address COVID-19 and our response to it in some way. I sincerely hope you'll come back every Monday for new episodes, as well as Thursday when I'll have athletes on to talk about how the virus has impacted their season or their career. As you know, I'm a tennis coach, and our season was canceled due to COVID-19, so I want to share some stories of athletes who have been impacted by this but maintain a Christ-centered perspective.

Episode 20: Dan Orlovsky
Dan Orlovsky is one of the most liked and most respected football analysts on ESPN. So much that he's even gotten calls from NFL teams gauging his interest in being an offensive coordinator. He's also very open about his faith in Jesus and the path that led him to faith. After a 13-year career as a quarterback in the NFL, Orlovsky transitioned to the analyst role in 2018. We got to talk about how he decided to give his life to Christ and he talked about the players who played a big role in his decision. He also opened up about his motivations early in his football career — fame, girls, status — and how that changed throughout his career and how it made him a better player and person. Dan stays pretty busy, appearing on a number of different ESPN shows, but he was kind enough to stop and talk over the phone for about 25 minutes about his life, his career, and his job at ESPN. Also, you'll hear me talk about this before and after my conversation with him, but my wife Emily is selling some hand soap and hand creme through Beautycounter that we are going to donate to health care workers who are fighting the battle against COVID-19 on the front lines. All you have to do is make the purchase and tell us who you want it sent to. It's simple and maybe tangibly small, but it lets these health care heroes know we appreciate their efforts to help us get our lives back to normal.  Head over to her Instagram and her Beautycounter page to learn more about how you can help.

Episode 19: Jamie Sumner
I'm not a parent yet, but I think it's safe to say parenting is hard. Parenting a child with special needs adds a whole new layer of challenges. Author Jamie Sumner's son Charlie has Cerebral Palsy. Her new book, Eat, Sleep, Save the World: Words of Encouragement for the Special Needs Parent, offers comfort, advice, and encouragement for other parents of children with special needs. She describes the challenges, but also the beauty, of parenting a child with special needs. I really appreciated how vulnerable and open she was both in this book and this conversation. We recorded this a couple weeks ago before a lot of the Coronavirus craziness started to happen, so there's not much talk about that here. Maybe that's a good thing. I hope this conversation can provide some relief from the onslaught of negative news that surrounds us currently. Aside from authoring books, Jamie also contributes to the New York Times, Washington Post, and other publications. And, like Jamie, I used to be a high school English teacher, so I enjoyed talking about our teaching experiences. I definitely recommend this book, especially if you're a parent.

Episode 18: Barnabas Piper
One of my favorite parts about doing this show is getting to talk to authors of books I read and enjoyed. This week I got to talk with Barnabas Piper, the author of three books, including Help My Unbelief, which is probably my favorite book I've read this year. The book centers on dealing with doubt, and why doubt is not the enemy of faith. In fact, doubt can lead us to ask questions that help us arrive at understanding God better and taking us to a deeper faith. This is a topic that's been on my heart for several years and is the basis for my own book I'm writing. I was excited to talk to Barnabas about this book and his new book coming out in October. Barnabas is the son of prominent pastor and author John Piper, and first book, The Pastor's Kid, talks about what life was like having one of the most influential Christian men as his father. This past week brought a year's worth of news with it with all that's happened regarding the Coronavirus, but just two weeks ago Barnabas's city of Nashville was significantly damaged by tornadoes. While it might be easy to move on to the next pressing matter, there's still work that needs to be done to rebuild in Nashville, so we talked about some of the growing needs in Nashville. We also talked about how Christians and churches can respond to the Coronavirus and how this can actually help give us some perspective on what our priorities are.

Navigating a COVID-19 World
What do you do when your world as you know it is flipped upside down — when the everyday norms you're accustomed to are taken away? The Coronavirus outbreak has rattled our world, both literally and metaphorically. What we're realizing now is that our identity is wrapped up in a ton of worldly things — sports, entertainment, news, our phone. So many of our go-to distractions have either been canceled or postponed as we try to figure out how to stop the spread of COVID-19.  My church is going through a series now on Hebrews, titled Greater, and one of the prevailing themes is this idea that God is not greater than anything. He’s greater than everything. When you believe He’s greater than everything, then He’s always going to be greater your anythings. That's true now during this weird, uncertain time that we live in and it's going to be true during the next calamity that you experience, be it societally or individually. This is a unique opportunity for us to really slow our lives down. When horrible things like this happen to loved ones or society as a whole, we often turn to things like sports or entertainment to distract us. Even with 9/11, within days the MLB season resumed, and it was a chance for people to unify and get our minds off of what just happened. We don’t have that opportunity now for the most part, and maybe that’s a good thing. It’s a chance to recalibrate where we place our identity and where we find our joy. For me, that’s in Jesus. That’s my hope for you, too. If you need to get in touch with me, give me a follow on Instagram at coleclaybourn or on Twitter @ColeClaybourn. You can also email me at innohurry@coleclaybourn.com.

Episode 17: Jo + Crystal Taeleifi — Know Wonder Band
I'm excited to introduce you all to an up-and-coming husband and wife Christian music duo this week called Know Wonder! Jo and Crystal Taeleifi live in Racho Cucamonga, California and have burst on the music scene with a couple singles — "Conquered" and "Dear Anybody." Let me tell you, these songs are jams, and I absolutely loved getting a chance to talk to these guys. I'm already ready to fly out to California with Emily and visit them just so we can make a Target run and hang out with them. In all seriousness, I know this conversation is long, but it's so worth it. We got to talk about their music career, how they started this band, and what their mission is with it beyond the music. They're just two down-to-earth people using their talents to serve the Lord, and I love that. Make sure you check out the links below so can find their music and stream it on your preferred platform.

Episode 16: Robin Dance
Have you ever felt like you're just wandering through life? What about in your walk with Jesus? Have you ever felt like a wanderer? I definitely have, and chances are you have, too. My guest this week is Robin Dance, author of the new book, For All Who Wander: Why Knowing God is Better Than Knowing It All. I loved her book, mainly because it's so similar to the one I'm writing and Robin and I share very similar stories. But I know her story, and this conversation, will resonate with you. If you've ever struggled with asking God the hard questions, of not understanding everything that happens in life or wondering why it happens, you're not alone. In fact, you're in the majority. The best part is that asking those questions can, and often does, lead you to a much stronger understanding of who God is. I can't wait for you hear this conversation.

Episode 15: Daniel Im
We've talked a lot about identity on this podcast and, more specifically, our identity in Christ. This week we'll get to hear from author Daniel Im about his new book, You Are What You Do (And Six Other Lies About Work, Life, & Love). Daniel is a pastor at Beulah Alliance Church in Edmonton, Alberta and has written a couple other books — No Silver Bullets and Planting Missional Churches. His new book addresses seven lies that we are told and what causes them to be so prevalent: You are what you do You are what you experience You are who you know You are what you know You are what you own You are who you raise You are your past I loved this book and I'm so thankful Daniel is here to share some thoughts about it and why this book is necessary right now. If you've ever found yourself placing your identity in any of those seven lies, I cannot recommend this book enough.

Episode 14: Jordon Conner
We often wonder what it would be like to hang out with some of our favorite artists. Jordon Conner has gotten to do that, and it was fun to live vicariously through him in this conversation. Jordon is an incredibly talented photographer who, in his young career, has already impressed people so much that some of the biggest artists have asked him to shoot photos of their tours. His portfolio includes tour photos of Ben Rector, Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors, Johnnyswim, Phil Wickham, The BAND Camino, Crowder, and so much more. Pretty much if they're on my Spotify playlist, Jordon has shot photos of their shows. We talked about how he got his start in photography, how he got hooked up with some of the biggest artists around, and what it's been like to tour the country with a camera in hand. We talked about how what these artists are like off stage, and it was great to hear that they're all genuinely good people. Jordon also sells products featuring the phrase "Tell Your Story." As he explains on the shop's website, "every person in the world has a story to tell. I've made these products as a reminder to not be afraid to talk to new people and treat everyone with kindness because you don't know what their story is in life. Always Tell Your Story." I love that, and I love his mission behind it. It was really cool to talk to Jordon and learn about his career and who he is as a person. Be sure to look for him at your next concert. There's a good chance he'll be there shooting photos.

Episode 13: Loren Salyer
It's always fun when you can have friends on the podcast. This week I got to have my good friend Loren Salyer on to talk about the art of wedding photography and the discipline it takes to run and sustain your own business. Since she was in college, Loren has been running her own photography business. She does weddings, engagements, couple shoots. Pretty much anything. Loren shot Emily and my engagement and wedding photos and we've done a number of other shoots with her as well. Pretty much any time we need nice photos taken of us, we call Loren. She is truly one of the most talented people I know and Emily and I have gotten to become really good friends with Loren and her husband Tyler. I'm excited to have her on to talk about creativity, but also her faith journey. She's got such a great story, from being a teenage mother to where she's at now in her life. Hearing her maturation process, both creatively and spiritually, and how that's intersected and what she's learned about God was really cool.

Episode 12: Sarah Rylynn
This is one of the most important conversations I'll ever have on this podcast. Sarah and I connected a couple years ago over our shared experiences of grief. Sarah was the best friend of Christina Grimmie, a popular YouTube singer who also appeared on Season 6 of The Voice. Following a concert in Orlando in June 2016, Christina was tragically shot and killed during a meet and greet with fans. As you can imagine, the last few years have been incredibly difficult for Sarah and he's processed a lot of her grief and struggles with her own faith publicly, both online and through her podcast. When I experienced a tragic death in my own life, I reached out to Sarah, and it sparked what has become a really valuable friendship. It's been awesome getting to know her and process our own grief together. It's comforting to know that other people experience the same emotions, even when those emotions include confusion and anger toward God. I asked Sarah to write the foreword for my book, and this conversation is a pretty good lens into both her story and mine and some truths that the book will include. I'm so grateful you're here today for this conversation. It's not by accident. Links Follow Sarah on Instagram Listen to Sarah's podcast, Shadowlands If you've got questions for me or just want to comment on the show, shoot me an email at coleclaybourn@gmail.com or reach out to me on Instagram.

Episode 11: Tyler Lindsey, Savannah Smith, & Cameron Federico — Crossland Worship
This was such a fun episode! This week I got the chance to sit down with some friends of mine who lead worship at our church here in Bowling Green, Crossland Community Church. Aside from leading worship, last year they started a group at our church called “The Kall,” and the goal has been to bring 18-30 somethings together and build a community. We talked about how they got the idea for this and why there’s such a need for a community in this age bracket, as well as what we see God doing with our generation and what some of the biggest challenges are that we are facing as a generation. I know in Evansville Emily and I felt there was a need for a church group that targeted young adults into their 30s. That's exactly what this group is going for. It was such an uplifting and encouraging conversation and I love the fire that my church has for God and this community and I love the way these guys are approaching this new year in terms of building a community. If you live in the Bowling Green area and are in the 18-30 something age range, The Kall starts back up on Jan. 27 and goes every other Monday from 6:30-8 p.m. at Crossland Community Church. Please come! Links If you've got any questions, shoot me an email at coleclaybourn@gmail.com or on Instagram. Or, give The Kall a follow as well as Tyler, Savannah, or Cameron and shoot them a question. You can also learn more here, or email The Kall at thekall@crossland.tv.

Episode 10: Jason Romano
For most people who work in sports journalism, working at ESPN is the dream. And for most people, once they're there, the plan is to be there for their whole career. Jason Romano was no different, until about two years ago he felt God pulling him away to do something more aligned with his faith. Jason now works for Sports Spectrum, a magazine and website that covers the intersection of sports and faith, and he is the host of the Sports Spectrum podcast. He shares his story of faith in how he knew it was the right time to leave ESPN for Sports Spectrum, and he also lets us in on what it's like to be able to talk about faith with some of our favorite people from the sports world. He's also the author of "Live to Forgive: Moving Forward When Those We Love Hurt Us" which is a book about his relationship with and eventual story of forgiveness toward his father. He has another book coming out in July called "The Uniform of Leadership: Lessons on True Success from My ESPN Life." Since Jason and I talked for this interview, I've started writing some for Sports Spectrum. You can find those articles here.

Episode 9: Stephen Copeland
Whether this is your first time tuning in or you’re a regular listener, I’m so grateful you are here this week because this conversation is one of the best we’ve had. My guest this week is Stephen Copeland — an author, writer, storyteller, a good friend, and truly one of the smartest people I’ve gotten to talk to for this podcast. Stephen is the author of “Where the Colors Blend,” and he’s co-authored numerous books with some really big people, but what I think you’re going to see is that he’s also just an incredibly knowledgable person, particularly as it pertains to spirituality and theology. This is one of the deepest and most theological conversations I’ve gotten to have on this podcast, and this feels really weird to say, but I really, really want to encourage you to stick around for the whole conversation because I know I certainly learned a lot from Stephen and I think you will too. Pretty much every topic I hoped this podcast would cover, we did it in this episode. Stephen and I were connected through a mutual friend last summer, and we’ve realized that our stories are very similar. We talked about some of the most heavy things we deal with daily — doubt, comparison, anxiety, death — and how our faith guides us in those seasons. We talked about how to allow those seasons to motivate us creatively and use our God-given creative abilities to share our stories. Whether you’re a writer and are planning to write a book, or you just find yourself struggling to deal with some of these things, I truly hope this conversation is encouraging to you. I’m so grateful for this conversation and I’ve been so excited to share this with everyone. I hope you find this as valuable and encouraging as I did.

Episode 8: Clay Hassler
It's so fun when you get to interview friends, and I'm thankful to call Clay Hassler a friend. I've known Clay and his family for pretty much my entire life, and they're some of the most talented people I've ever met, and Clay is certainly no exception. Clay and his wife, Tif, are filmmakers who live in East Nashville, Tennessee, Nashville, TN, and they also lead a creative collective and film content studio in New York City called Wet Paint. Clay is the son of a photographer and has been around the creative arts his entire life. He's been making films since high school, but that was just the start of what has become an award-winning career so far for him. Clay was named a “Director To Watch” by Way Too Indie following the release of his debut feature film, HOMELESS. The Hollywood Reporter wrote that the film was “incisive and sensitive… astounding.” He's now in the process of writing a new feature film called CA$HVILLE, which we talked about in the podcast. Perhaps most importantly, though, is Clay and Tif are now parents to a beautiful baby boy named Harry, who you'll hear from a couple times in this episode. It was so fun to catch up with Clay and chat about his film career and how his faith has guided him in his work and now in fatherhood. This was also a great conversation about creative process and discipline, and how he and his wife (who is his co-producer) manager their work together while being new parents. Clay's also got some great food and drink recommendations for Nashville if you're ever in town and we talked about some New Year's goals.

On your feet! Brad Ellis of the Ghostrunners podcast joins me for the final episode of 2019. A few weeks ago we had Jake Triplett, who is the other co-host of Ghostrunners, and this week you get to meet Brad, who is just a genuinely good guy who also happens to be very funny. He also leads worship at his church in Kansas City and owns his own custom woodworking company, Ellis Custom Creations. We talked about the rise of their podcast and his decision to leave a corporate job to start woodworking. Brad and I are also here to give you all some linguistic lessons and we talk about annoying things about New Year's Resolutions and how I used to have Jesse McCartney hair.

Episode 6: Emily Claybourn
Two years ago my wife and I became husband and wife. Today, she joins me on my podcast for us to celebrate our second wedding anniversary and share some of our favorite memories over the first couple years of our marriage! I'm so excited about this episode! Not only was it a lot of fun to share about our marriage, but my wife is a practicing marriage counselor, so we talked about some real-life stuff that can help young couples avoid typical stumbling blocks in marriage and build a marriage that lasts.  I'm a firm believer that marriage is not hard. Life is hard. You'll hear us talk about that in this episode because we're so tired of couples — especially young couples — being told that before marriage or even on their wedding day. Life itself is hard. Marriage brings along a partner for you to face life's trials with. Our hope is that this conversation encourages you whether you're married, engaged, dating, or just hope to get married down the road. Interviewing your spouse is a lot harder than I thought it would be, but we had a lot of fun! Be sure to check out Emily's info below and let her know you enjoyed hearing her on the show this week!

Episode 5: Manda Carpenter
Christmas is next week! That means we are right in the middle of the Christmas “hustle,” and I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of this season leaving so many people feeling wiped out and stressed. It’s the complete opposite of what we should be feeling this time of the year, yet we’re all running around like crazy to get shopping done or finish deadlines at work, or attending a bunch of Christmas parties. There’s just this crazy “hustle” mindset that seems to set in this time of the year and we start freaking out a little bit. What we need is some space and to just slow down.  Well friends, that is the topic of this week’s show. My guest this week is Manda Carpenter, author of the “Space” devotional. She has so much insight on this topic, so we talked a ton about slowing down this time of the year to create space in our lives and maintain balance — physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally, all of it. We also talked about her new book coming out in 2021, and if you’re an aspiring author, we dove into the book writing process and she gives some really great tips on how to go about that. Manda has been a huge help to me as I’ve been writing my own book, so if you’re interested at all in writing a book, this conversation is definitely for you.  I’m excited for you all to hear this conversation because I think it’s so important to hear right now. If you know someone who thinks they’re too busy to listen to this right now, they’re probably the person who needs to hear this conversation, so be sure to tell them to listen as well.

Episode 4: Tyson Helton
As most of you know, I'm a graduate of Western Kentucky University, and by nature I'm a big Hilltopper sports fan. The last two college football seasons haven't been the most exciting for WKU fans, but in the offseason the school hired Tyson Helton as its new head coach. Coach Helton comes from a coaching family and guided the Hilltoppers to an 8-4 season in his first season as a head coach, which earned WKU a berth in the Servpro First Responders Bowl vs. Western Michigan on Dec. 30 in Dallas.  Coach Helton, like any football coach, has moved around quite a bit in his coaching career. He started his career in 2000 at the University of Hawaii and worked his way up to eventually be the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for during an unprecedented run of success at WKU in 2014-15. From there he coached with his brother, Clay, at the University of Southern California for two years and last year spent the season as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Tennessee. All that moving is hard for an individual, let alone a family. Coach Helton shared his perspective on coaching and how he balances the pressures and stress of winning and losing while also keeping his priorities of his faith and family at the top. It was a refreshing conversation. He's the kind of coach that cares just as much about players as people as he does as players. WKU football is in good hands!

Episode 3: Jake Triplett
Jake Triplett is one of the funniest guys on the Internet. If you’ve ever watched a Trey Kennedy video and laughed, then you’ve laughed at Jake’s work. Jake shoots, edits, writes, and sometimes stars in Trey’s hilarious videos, and he’s pretty funny himself. He’s had an eventful career as a videographer and has gotten to do a ton of really cool things, and a lot of these involved having faith and taking a risk. Last year, he and two of his friends flew out to Maine and bought a limo to drive it across all of the lower 48 states doing acts of kindness with the ultimate goal of getting on the Ellen DeGeneres show. He talks about that and how he got connected with Trey Kennedy and what that’s done for his career. He also talks about the struggles of being perpetually single, his obsession with Chick-fil-A, and if you’ve ever listened to his podcast Ghostrunners, we did a couple of popular bits from his show. He’s got a great outlook on life and brings a ton of humor to everything he does.

Episode 2: Phil Heller
Phil Heller serves as the lead pastor at Crossroads Christian Church in Evansville, Indiana, which is also my home church. Aside from being just an all-around good dude, Phil is a tremendous man of God who returned to the church where he started his ministry, this time about 20 years later as the lead pastor. He was hired less than a year after the previous lead pastor was fired, and he talks about how he navigated the process of knowing it was the right job, along with the sensitivity of taking over as pastor at a church still healing from the split. He talks about issues facing the church today and what his vision is for Crossroads. He's just a really good guy.

I've been a fan of Ryan's for so long and I've been lucky enough to call him a friend for several years, and I was so excited to sit down and talk to him just about life. Ryan is an incredibly talented musician and was in the popular a capella singing group Straight No Chaser. He left a life of touring and fame to lead a Young Life chapter in his hometown, so he shares his journey of leaving the world of professional entertainment to work in ministry. It's such a great story of faith that we can all resonate with. He's hilarious and has so much wisdom and he was an obvious choice as the guest of the first episode. Ryan just released a new Christmas called Indiana Christmas. If you're a Hoosier like me, it's a must listen for the Christmas season. You can stream it on all digital platforms. You can find that and the rest of his music at Ryansongs.com and you can help support him by being a part of his Patreon community.
