Favorite quotes:

1. We know the things to do but we don’t always know how to be the person that we’re supposed to be. I can look really busy but it’s masking the fact the I am not listening and letting the Holy Spirit work inside of me.

2. I think it’s a really subtle lie that the enemy can kind of feed us where if we confess to one another, kind of the work is done, we’re off the hook, you know who I am. But it really cuts the legs out from under the gospel which isn’t just about transparency, it’s really about transformation.

3. One of the reasons we haven’t been growing in Christlikeness is because we resist the very circumstances that he often uses to change us.

4. Sometimes we get focused on the things that God is having us do when the things are really a metaphor for what he is doing internally.

5. Transparency can’t be just talking about the bad and what’s broken. It also has to be giving God glory for what the gospel does in our life.

In this episode I answer these questions:

1.  What would you say to your younger engaged self about wedding and marriage preparation? (35:54)

2.  Do our pets go to heaven? (43:11)

3. What’s the best business advice anyone ever gave you? (46:01)

Favorite quotes:

1. When we guard our hearts too much, we also miss out on too much. We only have one life and the years are ticking by and so wherever we are, I think there's something there for us that is worth loving.


2. It’s not just about shaping the places where we live and loving the place we live. It’s also about recognizing all the places shapes us and the ways those places nourish us.

3. I really think that our God is a placemaker God. He not only created this world for us but he carved out special places in it like the garden of Eden or the promise land.


4. When we’re tending our special places, we are living out our role as image bearer really of this placemaking God.


5. The things that we most fear are really not worth fearing because God will be there and it won’t be as bad as we think like his comfort will be that real.

In this episode I answer these questions:

1. I recently parted ways with my best friend of 10 years. How do I grieve someone well who isn’t actually dead? (29:41)

2. If a Christian commits suicide will they still go to heaven? (33:14)

3. How can I find and connect with a literary agent for a long-term relationship? (34:43)
