The need to protect, attack, and justify that seems to permeate much of our social media presence seems to have filtered into our every day lives until we become paralyzed by the weight of all the opinions in the world.
What does it mean when we share something with the world?
How do we manage expectations – of others and ourselves?
Perhaps most importantly, how do we determine whose opinions are going to drive our daily decisions?

For our spring What We’re Loving episode it’s clear we’ve both broken out of our reading slump! But we’re also loving a few television series, comfy clothes for the still-working-from-home situation (truth: we’ve always worked from home), and practical items for organizing (but not cleaning, let’s not get crazy).
Our lives are filled with chance encounters, with moments impacted by people we’ve never met or hardly know. How do we make the most of those moments? How to we see the people around us as potential relationships and God-inspired encounters instead of bodies we pass on our way to other duties?
Kristi, Lindsey, and special guest Eva Marie Everson discuss some of those encounters that changed our lives and how we can make the most of them and, possibly, create more.
Eva Marie Everson is the multiple-award-winning author of both fiction and nonfiction. She is the president of Word Weavers International and the director of Florida Christian Writers Conference and the North Georgia Christian Writers Conference. She has worked with Jerry B. Jenkins (Christian Writers Guild) and as an adjunct professor at Taylor University.
Ah, the romantic comedy. A date night staple, a girls’ night go-to, a sick day comfort. It’s a well loved – and well mocked – genre, but which movies truly stand out?
Kristi, Lindsey, and special guest Bethany Turner, queen of RomCom knowledge and part-time Colin Firth obssessor, walk through the last four decades of RomComs. Which were the best? Which are the hidden forgotten gems?
Will Lindsey and Kristi’s friendship survive a disagreement over Sweet Home Alabama?
Join us on this journey of nostalgia and laughter as we discuss the RomCom.
