Happy Hour #228: Jen Wise
  My guest for The Happy Hour # 228 is Jen Wise. Jen holds an MA in Theology from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and serves as a child advocate with Compassion International as a part of their Artist and Speaker Team. Jen is happy to spend most days rotating between friends, family, writing, cooking, her neighborhood yoga studio, and being an active part of her home church.  Jen and I start off the show talking about how we're all walking around exhausted! It doesn't have to be this way, and Jen gives us practical tips on how we can lessen the weight we all feel, all the time. I loved hearing her share about how her own process of letting things go, and fully resting in the grace God has provided. We also chat about friendships, and how in different seasons it can be hard to prioritize, but that it's possible to continue to nurture those relationships. In the second half of the show, the topic of control takes center stage, and we also talk about eating right, getting enough sleep, and all those "taking care of yourself" things that we tend to push to the side. Don't worry friends, our conversation isn't about shaming - it's just the opposite. Jen encourages us that loosening our grip, trusting God more, and taking care of ourselves, helps us live the meaningful life God intends.  {You can listen to the show HERE, and make sure you never miss a Happy Hour by subscribing through your favorite podcast app (ie. iTunes, Stitcher).  And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends!} Links from the Show Jen's Website Jen's Book: The Bright Life Voxer The Quest by Beth Moore Seamless Bible Study by Angie Smith What Jen's loving: Cam & Jeff, Fordite nail polish, Keds by Kate Spade, everything at Madewell What Jen's reading: Awed to Heaven, Rooted in Earth: Prayers of Walter Brueggemann, It's Not Supposed To Be This Way by Lysa Terkeurst, and Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing by Sally Lloyd-Jones Lysa Terkeurst on The Happy Hour Sally Lloyd-Jones on The Happy Hour The Story of God's Love for You by Sally Lloyd-Jones Come join The Happy Hour on Patreon If You Only Knew Connect with Jen Twitter// Instagram // Facebook Connect with Jamie + The Happy Hour Twitter // YouTube //  Instagram // Facebook   Sponsors Yes, I'm Hot in This by Huda Fahmy Pardon the Mess Podcast LOLA - get 40% off with code: HAPPYHOUR40   See all the links from the show HERE

Happy Hour #227: Rachel Joy
My guest for The Happy Hour # 227 is Rachel Joy. Rachel is a pastor's wife, mom to four and the Founder & Executive Director of Sparrow Women. Sparrow Women exists to catalyze the next generation of reconcilers. Rachel is a believer in strong coffee, long dinners, and spontaneous dance parties. On today's show Rachel shares the story of how she came to start Sparrow Women and the Sparrow Conference. Rachel and I talk about what it was like for her when she first started to dig deep and ask questions about racial equality, reflect on her own privilege, and examine how the world is truly set up. I love how Rachel says we are all Kingdom Cultivators, but to do the work, we must first understand what God's kingdom is.  Rachel and I discuss how the topic of racial harmony and reconciliation can seem overwhelming at first, and she provides some first steps to take. Rachel also honestly shares how the walk can be messy, the conversations difficult, and we're not promised that it will be easy. But, we are called to be peacemakers and reconcilers, and with Christ, it is possible.  {You can listen to the show HERE, and make sure you never miss a Happy Hour by subscribing through your favorite podcast app (ie. iTunes, Stitcher).  And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends!} Links From the Show Sparrow Women Sparrow Conference 2019 - Use code: HAPPY for special discounted rate!

Happy Hour #226: Lysa TerKeurst
My guest for The Happy Hour #226 is Lysa TerKeurst. Lysa is a #1 New York Times bestselling author of over twenty books, international speaker, and the president of Proverbs 31 Ministries. Her passion is teaching the Bible in vulnerably realistic ways that help others personally engage with God by connecting His truth to their everyday lives. You can find her most days writing from her sticky farm table in Charlotte, NC and enjoying life with her husband Art and the families of her 5 grown children. You guys, I cannot think of a better way to start off The Happy Hour in 2019 than this episode. Get your tissues and your pen and paper ready for this one. Lysa and I start off the show talking about how she began working with Proverbs 31 Ministries. Lysa tells us about writing her latest book in real-time as her world was turned upside down by a marital affair, and being diagnosed with significant medical issues. We talk about being in the "messy middle" place of life, and the importance of creating safe spaces and community to discuss disappointment in our lives. Lysa speaks about how God helped her hear His truth so she could face her fears, leaning on friends' faith when we feel so shaken, and the struggle of when our feelings and faith come in conflict. Lysa tells us how it wasn't clear to her how this story would end, but she realized redemption is available now, whether there's reconciliation or not. She speaks such encouragement to us when she says, "Redemption is based on my choices - I can choose to have redemption with God today." {You can listen to the show HERE, and make sure you never miss a Happy Hour by subscribing through your favorite podcast app (ie. iTunes, Stitcher).  And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends!} Links from the Show Lysa's Website Proverbs 31 Ministries It's Not Supposed to Be This Way Uninvited Suzanne Stabile's The Enneagram Journey Podcast The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel van der Kolk, MD What Lysa is loving: Having her book Uninvited on an episode of This Is Us, this season of life with new possibilities, What Lysa is reading: The Cozy Minimalist by Myquillyn Smith Connect with Lysa  Facebook// Twitter// Instagram Connect with Jamie + The Happy Hour Facebook // Twitter // Instagram // YouTube Join The Happy Hour party on Patreon Want to stay connected to The Happy Hour? Subscribe to The Happy Hour Newsletter!

My guest for The Happy Hour # 225 is my man, Aaron Ivey. On this week’s show, we look back and chat about some of the highlights of 2018, including the launch of my book If You Only Knew!

Happy Hour #224: Amy Wolff
My guest for The Happy Hour # 224 is Amy Wolff. Amy is a TEDx Speaker Coach and Executive Coach for a consulting company she co-owns with her father in Portland, OR. She accidentally started a global movement in 2017 through simple yard signs. But what currently thrills Amy the most is engaging in difficult conversations with unlikely friends and leading teams to Rwanda to experience the global family of God. Amy and I start off talking about jealousy and how this show almost didn't even happen. Amy gives us some great tips about speaking, whether that's at Sunday School, at the PTA, or in front of a large crowd. We then talk about grief and the loss of her brother Jeremy. Amy talks about how it has influenced her life, and the peace and wrestling with God she has experienced. In the second half of the show, Amy tells us how she and her family decided to take action using yard signs when they learned of the suicide rate in their area. What began with driving around asking neighbors if they could place a sign in their yard, has turned into a global movement. We also learn about an unexpected friendship with a witch (yes friends, a witch) that has provided the opportunity to have difficult conversations publicly, but done so in love. And lastly - because we discussed  all the things on this show! - we talk about sin, looking at our own sin, and how it influences how we love people. {You can listen to the show HERE, and make sure you never miss a Happy Hour by subscribing through your favorite podcast app (ie. iTunes, Stitcher).  And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends!} Links from the Show Distinction Communication Don't Give Up Signs Love Does by Bob Goff The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown  What Amy is loving: Mindy Mae's Market DoubleHood, Noonday Collection, Sour Patch Kids new mango flavor What Amy is reading: Letters to the Church by Francis Chan, The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, New Seeds of Contemplation by Thomas Merton Connect with Amy  Facebook // Instagram Connect with Jamie + The Happy Hour Facebook // Twitter // Instagram // YouTube Want to stay connected to The Happy Hour? Subscribe to The Happy Hour Newsletter!

Happy Hour #223: Julianna Zobrist
My guest for The Happy Hour # 223 is Julianna Zobrist. Julianna is an author, speaker, music artist, fashion muse, social media influencer, and wife of Chicago Cubs World Series MVP Ben Zobrist. Zobrist has performed at numerous charity and professional events nationwide, and has been featured in Forbes, PARADE, CBS, and Sports Illustrated. She divides her time between Nashville and Chicago, traveling through life with her husband and three kids. Julianna starts off telling us the crazy (and I mean crazy!) story of how her husband's team won the World Series, they unexpectedly had to move, she released a single, and her baby was born pretty much all at the same time. We talk about her journey of discovering what it truly means to be created in the image of God, and how that has transformed her entire perspective on life. Julianna and I then talk about how we all have the tendency to deny or hide who we are, and can tie our identity to something or someone. I loved hearing her speak about how we need to stop apologizing for who we are, and stand confidently in our identity in God. In the last part of the show, we get to hear about life on the road for Julianna and her family, and how they set boundaries and fight for quality time. {You can listen to the show HERE, and make sure you never miss a Happy Hour by subscribing through your favorite podcast app (ie. iTunes, Stitcher).  And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends!} Links from the Show Julianna's Website Pull It Off What Julianna is loving: reading, being outside in the Fall and watching the leaves change, her fireplace What Julianna is reading: Consolations by David Whyte, Phaedo by Plato, The Emperor's Handbook by Marcus Aurelius, Man's Search for Meaning by Victor Frankl The Happy Hour Store - Last Week to Order before Christmas!

Happy Hour #222: Mary Beth Chapman
My guest for The Happy Hour # 222 is Mary Beth Chapman. Mary Beth is President and Co-Founder of Show Hope, wife to Steven Curtis Chapman, a New York Times Best Selling author, speaker, advocate, and momma. Steven and Mary Beth reside in Tennessee and have six children: Emily, Caleb, Will Franklin, Shaoey, Stevey Joy, and Maria. Mary Beth and I start off the show talking about Mary Beth's current season of life and she is living my dream - her kids and grandkids all live in the same city as her! Mary Beth shares the story of how they came to adopt three of their children as well as creating Show Hope, a non-profit that seeks to care for orphans by engaging the church and reducing barriers to adoption. In the second half of the show Mary Beth opens up about the pain and grief she and her family have walked through in losing their daughter Maria. I appreciated her honesty so much as she described her relationship with God as knowing she fully trusts Him while simultaneously having the emotions, questions for God, and pain. Mary Beth and her family have endured a terrible tragedy, but amidst the pain, you'll hear Mary Beth describe so many ways God has continued to pursue them, shown such kindness, and brought hope and encouragement. {You can listen to the show HERE, and make sure you never miss a Happy Hour by subscribing through your favorite podcast app (ie. iTunes, Stitcher).  And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends!} Links from the Show Show Hope Maria's Big House of Hope Colony House What Mary Beth is loving: Wild Ginger (sushi restaurant), her grandbabies, antique shopping, continuing to work with Show Hope What Mary Beth is reading: Love Kindness by Barry Corey, Daily Light Devotional by Thomas Nelson, A Grace Disguised by Jerry Sittser Do you love The Happy Hour?

Happy Hour #221: Melissa Radke
My guest for The Happy Hour # 221 is Melissa Radke. Melissa is a singer, speaker, author, and momma. Melissa and her family will soon be featured on a reality show that, in her words, "will probably horrify her mother". Melissa and her husband David live in Lufkin, Texas with their two kids, Remi Hope and Rocco Cooper who they fought so hard for during 12 years of infertility.  Friends, get ready because on today's show you're going to laugh, cry, and love hearing my conversation with Melissa! We start off the show talking about being brave while also feeling anxiety and fear. Melissa discusses how we learn so much through taking self-inventory and fighting the urge to point the finger outward instead of looking within ourselves. She also talks about how the reality tv show came to be and never in a million years did she think this would be part of God's plan! Melissa then shares the story of how she and her husband started out in Nashville and wound up in Texas, and faced infertility, loss of dreams, miscarriages, and broken trust in their marriage. She tells us how vulnerably sharing both sides of the story of her marriage brought healing. She says, "our most vulnerable stories are our most powerful thing", and I couldn't agree more. Hearing her story brought me to tears, but Melissa brings such encouragement as she talks about how our God is always faithful, and how He is constantly, always working for our good.    {You can listen to the show HERE. And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends.

On today's show, I'm catching up with Tara-Leigh since she last visited The Happy Hour in 2016.

Well, you're going to love this news, Tara-Leigh is launching a new podcast called The Bible Recap where she will take listeners chronologically through the Bible, and summarize and highlight the day's reading.

I am a long-time listener of several like-minded, WONDERFUL, podcasts (Jamie, Jessica H., Jen H., and others) and as I landed on Jamie's episode with Rachel, I almost said, "Nope, not today," but not at all because of the content. I saw the summary first... six beautiful kids... married to her highschool sweetheart... and some days, it seems like I'm the only one in the trenches, single with two intense kids, screwing up daily but trying to do better every day. I feel like I'm the only one still trying to make it to the party. But I did listen, and I WAS BLESSED. God spoke to me through Rachel and her story. I've been focusing on what I perceive to be missing instead of what I've been blessed with. In addition, this episode actually came on while I am driving to ATX for my third session of EMDR. I was so encouraged by this episode for so many ways. Thank you for popping me back into socket, ladies!! Much love ❤️

I literally sobbed listening to this in the car. What strength! What hope! There is NOTHING we cannot endure with the Lord. Thank you, Tova for sharing your story.
