The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey

Happy Hour #45 is with my new friend Shannan Martin. Shannan Martin is a writer who found her voice in the country and her story in the city. She and her jail chaplain husband, Cory, have four funny children who came to them across oceans and rivers. Having sold their dream farmhouse, they now live entrenched in community on the wrong side of the tracks. They’re surprised every day by God’s goodness.

On today's show Shannan and I talk about her family and all of her kids come to their family (one at the age of 16). Shannan and I chat about how God has changed her family's life and mission over the past few years. You will be encouraged by Shannan in this episode!

Fund the Nations helps people fundraise for their adoption, mission trip, or cause by creating custom, low cost t-shirts for them to sell.  Their custom design work is always free and they set it up where you pre-sell the shirts, so whether you sell 25 or 250, you’re guaranteed to make money off of it because every shirt you purchase has already been paid for!  They’ve worked with organizations like Compassion International and Lifeline Childrens Services and thousands of families just like yours.  Helping raise over $1 million per year in fundraising, they’d love to help you fund your calling!

Happy Hour #44 is with my friend Tasha Morrison. Tasha is a bridge-builder, reconciler, fellow abolitionist, and a compelling voice in the fight against human trafficking. Having worked with youth and served as a Children’s & the Next Gen Director, she has developed an untamed passion for social justice issues across the globe. Tasha is using her compelling voice to encourage racial reconciliation among all ethnicities and promote racial unity in America. She has an unwavering passion to develop others to do the same. Tasha is a native of North Carolina were she attended East Carolina University and earned a Masters in Business from Liberty University in Virginia. Tasha spoke on the behalf of Not for Sale, Cobb County Commission for Family and Children and Allies Against Slavery. She moved to Austin in 2012, and joined Austin Oaks Church as their Children’s Pastor. She is currently building a ministry to address racial bridge building called “Be the Bridge”.

As a frequent speaker at trainings and workshops, Tasha is known for her entertaining, engaging, and gracious presentations that captivate and persuade audiences to use their gifts and passions to fight and standup to injustices. Her tenacious spirit and faith in God make her a dynamic speaker. Tasha works with various organizations in her community.  Tasha embodies the statement “Injustice anywhere is a threat to Justice everywhere."

Tasha and I had a great time discussing the beginnings of our racial reconciliation group, and what the group has mean to both of us. I asked Tasha if she thinks sharing with my black children about racism is setting them up to just expect it. Tasha shares about what happened when she tried to incorporate black history month at her high school. We talked about how to go out and find some friends to have these healthy conversations with.

Back in February I met Emily and from the second I sat down next to her at Guerro's I knew that I wanted to be friends with her forever. She is the kind of person that just oozes with love and joy. I seriously felt so loved by her for the entire evening we had dinner together. Emily is a designer, teacher, mom, wife, designer, plus many more things as you will find out on this Happy Hour.
