Inspired Life

I have a treat this week on Life, Repurposed. Several members of the Christian Podcasters Association (affiliate link) recorded 5-minute Christmas episodes. Then we all did an exchange and put together our own variety show based on a few of the episodes from the exchange. Today, I'm bringing you episodes from four of my podcasting friends, plus my own. In the resources section below, be sure to check out each of their shows. I highly recommend you subscribe to hear full episodes. Each brings a different flavor to the mix, and I love the diverse ways we share a message. Featured in this order, you'll hear from:

What is the Christian Podcasters Association?

Christian Podcasters Association is a place for Christians who feel called to use their gifts and expertise to get a message out. It's a Facebook group but also a membership site. I'm a Gold Member, which means I have access to monthly masterminds and group meetings. That also includes this Christmas exchange!

Have you picked up your copy of my book yet? Classic Marriage: Staying in Love as Your Odometer Climbs

A classic is something of high quality and lasting value. In a marriage there will be hours of maintenance work, tinkering, breakdowns, meltdowns, blowups, cute photo ops, wear and tear, overhauls, memories, vacations, celebrations, and repairs. There will be moments where you haul yourselves back to “the garage” for work. Like a trusty old truck, a classic marriage isn’t perfect, but who can put a price tag on it?

As the odometer climbs, everyday challenges leave behind rust and ripped upholstery. Dings and scrapes come with the memories. The odors left by spilled milk and stale French fries replace the new car smell. But even with a few sputters and an occasional stall out, that baby is still moving down the road. Welcome to real life!

In this book, you’ll find:

  • Biblical inspiration, honesty, and self-deprecating humor from the front seat of adventure with Michelle and Phil.
  • Tips to get under the hood and keep your marriage on the road to a long future.
  • Tune-up questions in every chapter to work on your communication.
  • Tools for how to tinker with overheated emotions and repair broken hearts.
  • Witty comments from Phil – with a chance of dad jokes.

Get behind the wheel of your own love story, roll the windows down, and feel the wind in your hair as you keep that classic on the road!
