So excited to have Joe and Katie (Wilder) Warren on the podcast this week. Joe Warren served in the same mission as Micah Wilder (Katie's brother) and was hugely impacted when Micah came to Christ and shared his testimony of Christ while still on his Mormon mission.  Meanwhile, Katie is wrestling with the new found faith of her brother and her own spiritual journey.  It's a fun, heartwarming episode with lots of laughter as Joe and Katie share how Jesus drew them to Himself and to each other.

This week we feature part 2 of our interview about the book and how writing it impacted Lisa's relationship with her parents.  She also talks some about how the trauma of leaving your religion of a lifetime never totally goes away, but every time it rears its ugly head she had new opportunities to know Jesus more intimately and experience His healing grace in her life and relationships.  She also talks candidly about her reaction to the picture Christianity Today chose to use along with her interview that just came out this month.  This is a podcast episode full of wonder at God grace, gratitude and lots of humor.

This is a very touching and moving final episode to this series of episodes featuring Agusta's story.   All three of us, Agusta, Lynn and myself were in tears at the end, but it was a holy movement full of wonder at God's grace in all our lives, but especially Lynn and Agusta's.

Agusta continues to tell her fascinating story and her pursuit of "it."  God finally revealed this missing piece and Agusta immediately knew when she had found "it."  Dan also had an encounter with grace, and once again their lives radically changed.  It wasn't long before they suffered tremendous loss - job, friends, status - and some incredible hurt from the people that once were their closest friends.  It's a humorous and stirring episode of courage and trust in God in the midst of trial that inspires hope when life gets really rough.
