calling

callingWe often strive to be liked by the people in our lives, but author Sara Dormon says that if you’re a Christian and everybody likes you, then something is wrong. That’s actually the title of Sara’s newest book and in today’s episode, we talk about why that’s not such a funny joke. Sara is a wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, and is an advocate for women and children. She writes to share the causes she is passionate about, and to encourage Christians to live out the call on their own lives. Today we talk about adoption and foster care, about unplanned events in life, and just why Christians shouldn’t necessarily be liked by everyone.

Living a Redeemed Life is a podcast dedicated to encouraging all who listen to live in the redemption found in Jesus every day. Each week I enjoy a conversation with a friend—some old friends, some new—and we talk about all the things. Jobs and friends, spouses and kids, the writing life, the struggles we’ve overcome, the ones we’re still struggling with, and much more. And along the way, we look for how God is redeeming each circumstance to bring us closer to Him. It’s also a lot of fun! So sit back and relax, and enjoy my conversation with friends!

We all have a story to share. And experiences that will encourage, enlighten, and help others along the way. I love to hear about what you are interested in and what you can share with my audience. Podcasting is just a conversation between two friends…old or new…that others get to listen in on. I record our conversation via a Skype audio call and all you need is a microphone with headphones (earbuds work just fine!). So let me hear from you!
