Episode 271: Dr. Tony Evans and Pastor Scott Sauls
Play • 56 min

Today, as we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr Day and begin Inauguration week in 2021, two of my very favorite pastors have joined us. Dr. Tony Evans is here, discussing his new book U Turns, our current climate, the power of repentance, and pastoring in 2021. Then to walk us towards Wednesday, Pastor Scott Sauls pastors us in how to pray, how to process going into this week, and what God may be up to in us. His most recent release, A Gentle Answer, is the perfect book to read this week.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 224
It seems like it's been forever since we last said these words, but college baseball season is here! On this episode we talk about opening weekend for the Aggies and the Bulldogs, and we also discuss our weekend outings to the State / Alabama women's basketball game (me) and the San Antonio rodeo (Mel). Plus, Mel shares some ways we can all jump in and help Texans who are recovering from last week's ice storm. AND. This week we get to spend some time talking with author Elizabeth Passarella. I mentioned her new book, Good Apple, on the podcast a few weeks ago (you may remember that I loved it), and Melanie and I were so excited to get to visit with her. You'll hear part of the conversation on this episode - the rest a few weeks down the road - and you are going to love her. Melanie and I had both talked to her for about three minutes when we realized that it felt like we've known her forever.

Understanding Boys Better :: David Thomas [Ep 315]
Understanding the emotions of boys is a challenge no matter the age. Anxiety that presents as anger or distraction. Depression shows up as low-grade irritability. David Thomas returns to the show to answer listener questions about all things boy. David is a family therapist and director at DayStar Counseling Center in Nashville. He has lots of experience counseling families and children and has a set of twin boys himself. We talk about teaching our sons about emotional language, going to counseling, helping sibling relationships, and managing boy energy levels. “I think we need to be clear with boys. I think it's always helpful to use concrete language with them. When we're concise, clear, and concrete, those are kind of three rules of thumb, we can consistently be adopting. The mistake that I think we can make is we kind of soft pedal and dance around things.” If you are a parent of boys, this is an episode for you! Watch for a bonus episode coming out later this week too.

How (Not) to Read the Bible with Dan Kimball
I started this podcast to create a safe space for exploring our faith, our beliefs and new ideas. Well, friends, this conversation with Dan Kimball delivers and I can’t wait for you to hear it! Dan is an author who focuses on encouraging us to think creatively about breaking the negative stereotypes both the church and Christians face. And our conversation today is inspired by his new book, How (Not) to Read the Bible: Making Sense of the Anti-women, Anti-science, Pro-violence, Pro-slavery and Other Crazy-Sounding Parts of Scripture. During our time together, we talk about the dangers of using Scripture out of context and what we can do when someone uses the Bible against us to discredit our beliefs. Dan also gives us a helpful lens to use when reconciling challenging parts of the Bible, especially violence and slavery, with our faith. And don’t worry, we wrap up the episode with some fun talking about why Scripture is anti-shrimp, how to get a donkey into a bathtub, and if there are really unicorns hiding out in the Bible. In this episode, Dan and I talk about: * The truth of God’s character and how we can learn from everything in the Bible, including themes of violence * How information is our strongest defense when it comes to safeguarding our faith, especially for younger generations * Seeing the Bible as a library instead of a science manual and how we can use it to inform our modern-day questions, but not necessarily answer them. Favorite quotes: 1. Most Christians are not prepared to address the not-so-nice sounding bible verses. We just have to be prepared. 2. We have to know how to read our bible, the good verses and the crazy sounding verses. 3. Never read a bible verse by itself. 4. The bible was written to other people. But it was written for us so we can understand who God is. 5. We have turned the bible into a science manual trying to get our modern day questions and that wasn’t its intent.
