Your Last Decade #28: Barnabas Piper

As we enter this new decade, I thought it would be fun to talk to a few friends and reflect back on what life was like 10 years ago. In these conversations, you’ll hear guests speak about what God has done in their life, their dreams and goals, things they would have done differently, and things they’re most proud of. And, looking back always causes me to look forward, so we’ll also chat about dreams for the next ten years! My guest today is Barnabas Piper. Barnabas is an author, a podcaster, and serves on staff at Immanuel Church in Nashville, TN. He currently lives in the Nashville suburbs with his two daughters and their dog, and is getting married this month! Friends, today’s conversation was so refreshing. In this episode, Barnabas and I talk all about life growing up in the church, what faith has looked like for him over the past decade, and some really exciting things for him on the horizon. Barnabas talks about starting this past decade by losing his job and the eventual...

Happy Hour #305: Megan Lively

My guest for The Happy Hour #305 is Megan Lively. Megan has worked in social media marketing and management since 2008. In 2019, she transitioned away from that and is now using her experience, education, and love for the church to equip the church in the area of social media through Relevant Reach. I first met Megan at an ERLC (Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission) Conference in Dallas where we were both invited to speak. While I was there to talk about how to care for friends as they heal from abuse, Megan was there to share boldly and for the first time about her own story of being raped while in Seminary and the subsequent trauma and retraumatization she has endured and begun to heal from. In today’s episode, Megan shares her story with us much like she did that day in Dallas. We discuss how we process trauma and PTSD, the effects shame has on victims of abuse, and how these events have shaped her relationship with God and with the church. Megan tells us about the healing ways people have responded to her story, like her husband and her pastor and, unfortunately, how she encountered times where “Instead of people viewing [her] as an image-bearer, they viewed [her] as someone who was there to make life messy for the church -- and the church needs to be protected.” Friends, today’s episode is important for so many reasons. I’m incredibly grateful for Megan’s vulnerability, bravery, and willingness to share with all of us today! My prayer is that if you or someone you know has experienced or is experiencing abuse, you will be encouraged to reach out to a loved one and a counselor. This should not happen to you and it’s not okay. If you are someone who has been told of abuse, I pray that you can be an empathetic listener and take action to support them.

Happy Hour #304: Jill Dobrowansky

My guest for The Happy Hour # 304 is Jill Dobrowansky. Jill uses her gift of conversation to host the Feed Your Spirit Podcast -- a space where she talks to friends about how God has brought them through difficult seasons and what they learned about God during and after this time. She and her husband Eric eside in New Jersey – where during the summer months, you can find her on the beach with a book in her hands or out for a nice long run. You guys, getting to talk with Jill was SO encouraging! In today’s episode, Jill and I talk about her experience with the Your Story Matters study and how she created the Facebook page, Our Story Matters, to further connect women in the YSM study. Jill shares so vulnerably with us about her own story of her years of running from God and finding herself pregnant at 19. Then, how God showed His love and grace to her by placing steadfast people in her life to care for her deeply. We also got to talk about leading a study like Your Story Matters and how important it is to care for people’s stories well by being an active listener and stepping into difficult or emotional places with them. Jill reminds us that while the enemy might be good at making us feel shameful, God does not judge us. What a gift that reminder is! Friends, I hope today’s episode is as refreshing for you as it is for me! If you’re interested in learning more about Your Story Matters, be sure to go to Jamieivey.com/YourStoryMatters.

Your Last Decade #26: Grad Edition

As we enter this new decade, I thought it would be fun to talk to a few friends and reflect back on what life was like 10 years ago. In these conversations, you’ll hear guests speak about what God has done in their life, their dreams and goals, things they would have done differently, and things they’re most proud of. And, looking back always causes me to look forward, so we’ll also chat about dreams for the next ten years! In today’s episode, we’re going off the beaten path to celebrate. That’s right, it’s Your Last Decade: Graduate Edition!! My first guest today is Caitlin Smith. Caitlin is a native Austinite (aka a unicorn!) and a recent Texas Ex. She just graduated with her Masters of Science in Marketing and has been a sports photographer for UT Women’s Basketball. In this episode, Caitlin and I talk about what it’s been like living in a missional community, how “vulnerability breeds vulnerability,” and how we need to learn how to love mercy not just for ourselves, but for others as well! You guys, Caitlin is so wise and I loved our conversation today. She has navigated graduation in such a tricky season and done so with grace and understanding. I love her advice to college-aged women, to “be confident in who you are and who God created you to be uniquely.” In the second half of the episode, I chat with Holly Norris. Holly lives in Georgia with her husband and just graduated from nursing school. She was nominated to be on the show by her friend Amber -- thanks Amber! In our time together, we got to talk about her time in high school and the ways she believed that nursing was out of her reach and how she trusted in God’s faithfulness and that He would fulfill her dreams and purposes. She tells us about how her passion for nursing is driven by connecting with other people and how she loves that she gets to show Jesus to the people she treats and works with. Her advice is to “never feel like you’re less-than...because God’s going to be there with [you]!” so good! I love how clearly God’s steadfastness shines through Holly’s story and how deeply she has embraced it -- it’s so encouraging. Happy graduation to all of the 2020 grads this year! I’m so excited to see your next 10 years!

Happy Hour #301: Danielle Coke (OhHappyDani)

My guest for The Happy Hour # 301 is Danielle Coke. Danielle is the incredibly talented artist behind @OhHappyDani on Instagram where she makes doodles designed to encourage faith, inspire justice, and guide us as we love our neighbors well. You guys, Dani is one of a kind! In our conversation today, we talk about her recent thrust into the social media limelight with her illustrations that have gone viral in light of recent events. She shares about her upbringing in a Jamaican family in New York, navigating spiritual abuse in the church, and how God redeemed her relationship with Him and showed Dani His true character through scripture. We talk about how to handle the hateful comments on social media and doing the inner work necessary to address bias in all of us. I love when Dani says, “Often surrounding the conversation surrounding race, we encourage people to pull up a seat to the table, to sit with us and join the conversation...but I don’t see this as a table discussion anym...
