FIFTY episodes friends. I can't even believe it. I feel like I could just scream and cry and give all of you a hug! Isn't this so fun! Today's episode is with my friend Jen Hatmaker and it's of course so much fun! Jen is a mom to five, wife to Brandon, speaker, author, and HGTV star. Her newest book, FOR THE LOVE, just released yesterday and if you haven't ordered it yet you should! You will love it!

 

On this episode we chat about the shows Jen loves that I was trying to get on board with: So You Think You Can Dance & Gilmore Girls, and you will all be disappointed that since we recorded this I haven't watched one more episode of those. We talked about the book that my husband, Aaron, is writing, and some of her older books and how her writing has grown and changed over the years. We discussed racism and how to chat with our kids about this issues. Plus lots more fun stuff!  You will love this show.

Happy Hour #49 is with my friend Jenn Sprinkle. Jenn is a self proclaimed serial entrepreneur with a burden for dreamers and doers. After ten years in corporate america as a designer, traveling around the world with a dream job, she took a leap of faith and stepped out on her own and fully launched her own design and creative strategy business. Although her “pays-the-bills-day-job” continues to be her design business, her heart is for building and encouraging a community of dreamers, doers and entrepreneurs through The {Well} Studio. Inspired by her own journey to build a dream God called her to and the day-to-day struggles and doubts that come with building, she curated and self-published a book of prayers called 31 Days of Prayers for the Dreamers and the Doers in January 2015.

On today's show Jenn and I talk about her journey through starting businesses, writing a book, and how her and husband work together in their crazy adventures. Jenn opens up about her marriage struggles and how God has grown them together over the years as a couple. A few years ago Jenn and her husband both quit their jobs, sold everything, and completely changed the paths of their lives.

Jenn and I met at the If Gathering this past year and I loved everything about her as soon as we met! I know that you are going to love this show. Her transparency about her marriage problems early on in her marriage will encourage so many of you in your marriages.
