If you aren’t following Mike Foster over on Instagram, he is a must follow!  I have been a huge fan of his encouraging words and his podcast, Funtherapy for a while now.  Mike is the ever first guy on our podcast, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to introduce you to him if you don’t already know him.

We discussed how change is really difficult (and how to make is easier), how talking about the things that make us feel the most shame in our lives often sets us free, and relationship tips we can all benefit from.  I can’t wait for you to hear it!

We are kicking this season off with a bang!  Not many people I have spoken with have the depth and intensity that Tiffini Kilgore has when it comes to her love of “Papa,” as she refers to God.  Tiffini is the author and founder of home décor company, House of Belonging, and she is also now the author of Misfit Table.  She talks about how the trauma and brokenness of her upbringing seemed to follow her into her own family home, but the one steady constant amidst the hurt was the reassuring, capable voice of her Heavenly Father.

About the book Kilgore says, “I once thought rescue was a single event. Now I see it is a daily rescue. A daily coming to the table, letting him feed me gospel. Every single day. It’s beautiful. Simple. It’s enough.”

Y’all Tiffini brings it in this episode.  If you have ever felt stuck in life or maybe even like you’ve made too many mistakes to press on, this episode for you!  We cover all kinds of topics, I can’t wait for you to listen in.
