Episode 246: Tyler Merritt

I have been long hoping to have Tyler Merritt on the podcast- you probably know him as the guy from his Before You Call The Cops viral video. I know him as the guy who volunteers in our church's kids area. We've known each other for a while but our friendship grew three sizes today, just in our Hamilton conversation! :) By the way, this is a great conversation for the whole family, but I do think maybe adults want to listen before my #miniBFFs listen as we discuss racism and how to love our neighbors well. We go deep on this convo and I'm grateful for Tyler's faith and his words. . . . . . #thatsoundsfunpodcast Thank you to our sponsors!

Episode 244: Derwin Gray

Today is my first day being friends with Dr. Derwin Gray, but I have been a fan and follower for a very very long time. What an amazing dude! Strong teacher, kind pastor, good friend. His new book The Good Life is exactly what we need right now- a reminder that our world doesn't value the same things God's kingdom values. And that matters. I think you're going to love this conversation and his new book! . . . . . #thatsoundsfunpodcast Thanks to our partners! Raycon: Get 15% off your order at buyraycon.com/thatsoundsfun!
