    HH #671 Forgiveness & Reconciliation with Lisa-Jo Baker

    Have you ever had a parenting moment that you instantly regretted? Have you ever reacted in a way that reminded you of a side of your parents you didn’t want to imitate? We've all been there, and on today's show I have the most incredible conversation about this with Lisa-Jo Baker. 

    Lisa-Jo Baker is a bestselling author, lapsed lawyer, current senior acquisitions editor for HarperCollins, and the author of Never Unfriended, The Middle Matters and Surprised by Motherhood. With a BA in English/prelaw from Gordon College and a JD from the University of Notre Dame Law School, Lisa-Jo has lived and worked on three continents in the human rights field and subsequently spent nearly a decade leading the online community of women called (in)courage as their editor in chief and community manager. She’s also the co-host of the Out of the Ordinary podcast. Originally from South Africa, Lisa-Jo now lives just outside Washington, D.C., where she met and fell in love with her husband in the summer of ’96. Their story together spans decades, languages, countries, books, three very opinionated teenagers, and one dog.

    Lisa and I discuss breaking free from generational patterns and learning from the stories of our ancestors. You'll hear Lisa explain why understanding the origins of our behaviors are important and the process of forgiveness and reconciliation in family relationships. We jump into the parallels of growing up in South Africa and America and the need for truth-telling and justice. 

    You are going to love this conversation and I want you all to run and pick up her latest book, It Wasn't Roaring It Was Weeping (order your copy in the show notes!)!

    HH #670 Celebrating Ten Years of The Happy Hour with Jessica Honegger

    HAPPY 10TH BIRTHDAY TO THE HAPPY HOUR! On today’s episode I celebrated TEN YEARS with my good friend, Jessica Honegger.

We look over the last tens years and reminisce on friendships, parenting, ministry life, and The Happy Hour podcast began! You’ll hear how Jess contributed in teaching me the importance of vulnerability and repairing relationships, and the amazing growth that comes from entering those hard spaces.

    HH #668 So Much To Celebrate with Jamie Ivey

    Hey friends! I just can’t say thank you enough for all the amazing and kind words you have showered over me the last few days! May is an exciting month for me as we celebrated my birthday on Monday and tomorrow we celebrate the birthday of The Happy Hour! I feel so blessed to be celebrating 10 years, a full decade, of sharing the big things in life, the little things in life, and everything in between! I’m so thankful for all of you who have been on this journey with me! 

    I’m also so excited about my book club this month! My latest book, Why Can’t I Get It Together, release last February, and unfortunately I didn’t get to give it the love and attention it deserves! That changes this month! You can sign up today to get a free month of the book club and read Why Can’t I Get It Together with me! It’s going to be a lot of fun and I’d love for you to join me!

    I couldn’t have known how I would need the words from Why Can’t I Get It Together in this season. The amazing part is that it’s still all true. Though I’m reading it through a different lens, I would still say all the same things!

    These last few months I have been sustained by so many good books and songs and get ready, because I’m about to share all of them with you! As I always say, thank you so much for listening and sharing this episode with a friend!

    HH #667 Finding Hope in the Midst of Suffering with Jamie Ivey and Toni Collier

    Hey friends! Today’s show is my first show back after a 3-month break. I wanted to come back and have a conversation with a friend about how I’ve been doing since my world fell apart in early February. My good friend Toni and I have a conversation about grief and pain, and I hope it is encouraging to you right where you are today - no matter what your world currently looks like. We both have walked through immense pain and grief in these last six months and on the show, you will hear us both process this in our own unique ways. 

    I’m deeply grateful for this community! Your love and support from afar during my absence have meant the world to me. I’m thrilled to be back and look forward to the exciting things we have in store this month, including revisiting my book content and celebrating The Happy Hour’s monumental TEN-YEAR anniversary next week!

    Thanks for listening and sharing these episodes with a friend. I don’t take that lightly.

    HH #666 How to Grieve Well with Guest Host Toni Collier and Debra Fileta

    Happy May 1st friends! We are beyond excited to be in the month of May because we have so many things to celebrate with you! Jamie will be returning to the show this week and we can’t wait to have her back! The Happy Hour is also turning TEN YEARS OLD next week! We can’t get over how God has allowed us to be in this space for ten years, and we are so thankful for all of the guests and listeners who have showed up in this space with us! We love sharing stories of hope, encouragement, and God’s love with you! 

    On today’s show we have Guest Host, Toni Collier, and Debra Fileta walk us through how to grieve well. It’s so easy to bury, numb, or run from grief, but at the end of the day, in order for healing to take place, we must honor the space of loss and allow our community to support us in seasons of grief. Toni and Debra emphasize the need to heal and move forward, taking ownership of our role in relationships and finding closure. 

    Walking through grief may feel burdensome, but it’s nothing like trying to walk through life unhealed! We believe God can bring healing and redemption in the midst of hardship, and you can trust his good plan for your life!

    HH #665 10th Birthday Countdown: The Very First Convo with Susie Davis

    Hey friends! Welcome back to another birthday countdown episode! We are so excited about turning 10 years old in just a few weeks! Every Friday we've been playing episodes from our very first season. If you haven't caught up, we highly suggest you go back and listen! It's crazy how topics we talked about over ten years ago can still have so much relevance and meaning today! 

    On today's show we throw it back to the very first conversation with Susie Davis. Susie is an author, blogger, speaker and church founder. Susie is married to Will Davis Jr., the founding and senior pastor of Austin Christian Fellowship, and together they have three children. Aside from family and ministry, Susie is helplessly addicted to horseback riding and McDonald’s coffee. In addition, one of her all time favorites is cooking and enjoying family dinners. 

    Jamie and Susie discuss how they both ended up in radio accidentally, and also how hard it is to follow your passions individually when you also feel as though you are supposed to be giving so much to your family. Susie shares about what started her down the road of being a fearful person and how that ruled her world for so many years. We know by the end of this episode you'll be encouraged to live unafraid and kick fear to the curb!

    HH #664 The Connection Between Humility and Peace with Guest Host Esau McCaulley and Joel Muddamalle

    What comes to your mind when you hear the word, "humility"? Do you think doormat, walk over, self-deprecation, or strength, wisdom, boundaries, and peace? Humility can be a tough subject to tackle, but today we have the perfect duo to walk us through the connection between humility and peace: Guest Host, Esau McCaulley, and Dr. Joel Muddamalle. 

    Esau is a long time friend of The Happy Hour and has provided us with incredible conversations around his books, Reading While Black and How Far to the Promised Land. Esau is an author and associate professor of New Testament at Wheaton College. His writing and speaking focus on New Testament theology, African American Biblical interpretation, and Christian public theology. His book Reading While Black: African American Biblical Interpretation as an Exercise in Hope won numerous awards, including Christianity Today’s book of the year. Esau is a contributing opinion writer for the New York Times. His writings have also appeared in places such as The Atlantic, Washington Post, and Christianity Today.

    Joel serves as the Director of Theology and Research for Proverbs 31 Ministries and Lysa TerKeurst, and is a part of the preaching team at Transformation Church with Pastor Derwin Gray. Joel earned a PhD in Theology under Drs. Patrick Schreiner (NT) and Michael Heiser (OT) with an emphasis on Paul's household language in Ephesians as it relates to the Old Testament. He loves studying and teaching the brilliant truths found in Scripture and unpacking how they relate to our everyday lives.

    Whether we've incorrectly defined humility or underestimated its relevance to our daily life, we believe humility is the missing piece for the security, strength and confidence we all want. It's time to stop trying so hard to avoid our limitations or overcompensate for them. God has better for us and it begins with bowing low in humility!

    On today's show we have a very special memory: Jamie's first conversation with Wynter Pitts. Wynter is an author of several books, including She Is Yours. She is also the founder of For Girls Like You. Wynter Pitts started For Girls Like You magazine in 2012 when she was trying to find Christian resources for her four young daughters. In just a few short years, she created a national magazine, devotionals, books and many other tools for girls and their parents. For Girls Like You, equips girls to boldly walk in the person God created them to be! In 2018 Wynter suddenly went to be with the Lord. Her sudden death impacted us immensely, but not as much as her legacy continues to impact girls for generations to come! Wynter's husband and daughters carry on her legacy through For Girls Like You and today we are offering you a discount code! Use the code "happyhour10" to get 25% off the entire website!

    HH #662 Wanting God More Than Anything with Guest Host Angie Elkins and Lisa Whittle

    Sometimes we desire a new outfit, and other times it’s something deeper, like the approval of others. However, as we grow in our relationship with God, our desires should move in the direction of wanting him more than anything! In today’s show Guest Host Angie Elkins, and Lisa Whittle, dive into how our desires our shaped and transformed! We appreciate the vulnerability and transparency that both ladies share as they continue to be sanctified in their desires. 

    If you struggle with people pleasing, or maybe it's a habit that's tied to your self-esteem, we encourage you to lean in and allow God to reveal his heart to you!
