#93: Hospitality Made Ridiculously Simple with Kristin Schell

Meet Kristin: 

This girl is just so much fun! She led out and started something years ago the rest of us (and the rest of her neighborhood) "meant" to do and just never found the time for.  Well, once Kristin prioritized hospitality and getting to know her neighbors, lives started being impacted in a big way.  You're going to learn so many practical hospitality tips that prove, once again, that having people over doesn't have to freak you out.  Friendly warning: you're probably going to want a picnic table at the end of this episode.

What we chat about: 

  • The dos and don'ts of parenting teens
  • How and why Kristin became a front yard person
  • Some amazing hospitality hacks you'll want to try

#91: Connecting Freedom and Fitness with Alisa Keeton

Meet Alisa:

Alisa Keeton has been involved in the fitness world her whole life.  Once God got a hold of her heart she answered the call to create a space and train others to connect faith and fitness- in a way that was not cheesy and gross.  This conversation is about way more than fitness though, so stick around even if you don't consider yourself an athlete.

  • What it is like to walk with God when your husband does not
  • How to spot misplaced worship
