The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey

As we enter this new decade, I thought it would be fun to talk to a few friends and reflect back on what life was like 10 years ago. In these conversations, you’ll hear guests speak about what God has done in their life, dreams, goals, things they would have differently, and things they’re most proud of. And, looking back always causes me to look forward, so we’ll also chat about dreams for the next ten years!

Today, I'm talking with my friend Katherine Wolf about her last decade. Katherine is a survivor, communicator, and advocate. At the age of 26, Katherine’s life nearly ended with a catastrophic stroke (you can hear more of her story in The Happy Hour #98). Ten years ago, Katherine was transitioning from two years of intense rehab living in hospitals to learning how to live her new normal. Through this last decade, Katherine and her husband Jay have started a ministry, Hope Heals, written two books including their latest, Suffer Strong, had a baby!, and created a camp for families affected by disabilities. You guys, Katherine has lived through so much in these last ten years, and her joy and her love for God is overflowing. I am so thankful for Katherine, and what she teaches us about the visible and invisible wheelchairs of this world, and that joy can be found amidst it all!

My guest for The Happy Hour # 288 is Jennie Allen. Jennie is an award- winning and bestselling author of Bible studies, many books including her most recent Get Out of Your Head, and is the founder and visionary for the IF: Gathering. Jennie is a passionate leader following God’s call on her life to catalyze a generation of women to live what they believe. Jennie has a master’s in Biblical studies from Dallas Theological Seminary and lives in Dallas, Texas, with her husband, Zac and their four children.

It has been way too long since I’ve had my friend Jennie on the show, and I’m so happy to welcome her back. Today Jennie and I talk about the fight all of us are in to take every thought captive and remember who God is. Jennie shares her own story of some of her darkest months living with lies that produced fear, anxiety and doubt. Things started to change when Jennie began treating it like war and fighting the lies head on. Jennie and I also discuss how Biblical community isn’t optional, and we have to fight for it as well - it doesn’t just happen automatically. You guys, I think this may be one of those shows where you’ll want to go back and listen with pen and paper ready. I hope you will be as encouraged and fired up as I was!

Today, Kat Smith shares the incredible journey God has taken her on in the last decade. Kat tells us how she started out the decade as a teacher, and now she and her husband Jordan are the co-founders of Mudleaf Coffee in Plano, Texas. I loved hearing how God used different people to speak into the dream that seemed impossible, and hearing about the ministry that's now been created. I think you'll be moved listening to Kat describe how God so tangibly showed her that He saw her, and the way He equipped she and her husband with exactly what they needed when the time was right to open Mudleaf. I loved hearing how God has worked in Kat's life this last decade, and I'm excited to visit Mudleaf the next time I'm in the area!

My guest for The Happy Hour # 287 is Nancy Mattingly. Nancy is a wife, mother, and grandmother. Nancy and her husband Mitch relocated to the Nashville area from Houston, Texas, two years ago, after living there all their lives. Nancy spent twenty years at Living Proof Ministries and now works at a beautiful retail store in historic downtown Franklin, TN.
 
I’ve never felt more prayed for than I have by Nancy, and I am so honored to have her on the show today. Nancy is one of the strongest prayer warriors I know, and you’ll hear how God began nudging her to pray for people, and she gives such encouragement for how we can pray for each other. Nancy and I also talk about mental illness, and she speaks about the grief she’s been walking through after the loss of her son Kyle to suicide. Nancy reads from a letter she wrote from a parent’s perspective on suicide, and she shares so many important messages about mental health, suicide, and grief. Friends, I know some of you have lost a loved one from suicide, and you either know someone or may be battling with mental illness yourself. I pray that this show would be a source of comfort and hope for you as you hear Nancy speak with love and faith in Jesus amidst such a tragic loss

Today I’m talking with Liz Forkin Bohannon, the founder of Sseko Designs and author of Beginner’s Pluck. In 2010, Liz was a year into starting Sseko Designs and had been able to fulfill the promise of sending three women to college in Uganda. Liz and her husband were at a crossroads of deciding whether or not to go all in with Sseko Designs or not. Liz describes how they made their decision, sold everything, and lived out of their car to pursue the cause they believed in. I appreciate Liz’ perspective and honesty on the realities of life starting a company and what kept her going. You’ll also hear how those experiences influence her views about the future and things unknown, and what she hopes for in the next ten years.

Her newest book, Teach Me To Feel: Worshiping Through the Psalms in Every Season of Life released this January. 

On the show today Courtney shares her story of how God brought her to Him, and how each step of obedience deepened her faith and desire to be in God’s word. Courtney and I talk about the struggle when emotions feel so overpowering. We discuss how emotions are good and part of who we are, but Courtney reminds us they aren’t our truth. Courtney shares how she faced the fragility of life head on through the traumatic birth of her youngest son. Courtney is honest in describing how dark her world felt, and can still feel at times, but how God has brought healing, light, and the strength to hope even in the hardest of circumstances.

I’m so happy to welcome Kelly Stamps to the show today! Kelly lives in northwest Arkansas and is a wife, momma, blogger, and matchmaker (yes, you read that right)! Kelly and I reflect back to 2010 when Kelly was transitioning from the workplace to being a stay at home mom. In this new rhythm of life, she began blogging as an outlet, and it opened doors to several things – including helping singles find each other! Kelly tells us she set up her first Single’s Day on a whim, and now it has become a part of her ministry she hosts every year! Kelly and I also talk about singleness and feeling seen and known by the church. I hope each one of us will remember Kelly’s encouragement that no matter our lane in life looks like, it’s important!

My guest for The Happy Hour # 284 is Cheryl Luke. Cheryl is a teacher and aspiring writer with over 35 years in ministry. Cheryl is committed to help people live with intention, embrace the story of your life, and connect with God, others, and your circumstances in a healthy manner.

**A note: early in our conversation, Cheryl speaks about the abuse she endured from her ex-husband. I recognize this topic could be a trigger for some of you, so please note that around minutes 10-11 she describes what happened that caused her to leave, and feel free to skip the first part of the show.

Today Cheryl and I talk about the changes that can happen when we identify and confess the issues we uniquely face each day. Whether it’s an addiction, being a fixer, needing control, lying, or any other challenge that takes you away from the truth of what God says, healing and freedom is possible. Through her work with Celebrate Recovery and using the Relate model, Cheryl shares the ways she has experienced healing in her own life, and how she’s witnessed it in others as well. Cheryl and I also chat about times of transition and leaving a legacy, and she even turns the tables and starts interviewing me!

You'll also get to hear how the last ten years brought about a career change she never could have imagined!

My guest for The Happy Hour # 283 is Esther Fleece Allen. Esther loves to connect people to practical, faith-centered tools for living through every season, good and bad. She’s the author of two books (Your New Name and No More Faking Fine), a graduate of the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics, and is currently in seminary. When she's not traveling to speak or teach, she enjoys making a home with her husband and children.

On the show today, Esther and I talk about releasing labels we attach to ourselves that aren’t rooted in our God-given identity. Esther explains how these false labels from our circumstances, the past, shame, or even labels others have given us can make us miss the truth of our identity. Esther shares her own experience fighting to stay in the faith and live in the name God has given her as she endured abuse, broken family relationships, and years of stalking from her father. I loved Esther’s message to embrace all seasons of life, including times of lament as well as celebration, and through all of it, we can take it to the Lord.

Today, I am talking with "James" (a pseudonym), who shares his last decade which includes an amazing transformation of faith from atheist to being a devoted follower of Jesus. James' last decade found him living at his parents' home where he grew up with his mother secretly sharing the gospel with him for fear of retribution from his Hindu father. In 2010 James considered himself an atheist, and I know you'll be blown away as you hear James speak of how God pursued him, the miracles he witnessed in his mother's life, and the path he's on now as we enter 2020. I am so thankful for James' bravery in sharing his story, and I know you will be so encouraged by the show today!

Everyone has a story, and some parts of those stories may feel too hard to tell. You guys, today is the second birthday of my book If You Only Knew, where I go first and tell my story of stepping out of shame and into the freedom of the gospel. For this special "book birthday" episode of The Happy Hour I thought what better way to celebrate than to hear two of my friends, Shawn and Ginger, share their If You Only Knew stories.

You'll first hear from Shawn as she opens up about how her secrets of abortion and struggling with alcoholism kept her sick for so long. Shawn describes how it wasn’t until she told her story fully and walked with Jesus through all of it, that she finally began to heal. My friend Ginger then shares her story of struggling with social anxiety. Ginger lost her hearing literally overnight when she was just 4 years old, and over time her hearing loss provoked so much fear and anxiety about social settings.

These two interviews are part of a special If You Only Knew: A Mini-Series, where nine women speak about their If You Only Knew stories. I know you'll love hearing the rest of this special series, so come take a listen! You can find all the interviews on the mini-series blog post.

Nick and I talk about what he would have told his 25 year old self in 2010 as they faced so many life changes, and I know you'll love hearing his perspective! After hearing Nick reflect back on his last decade, two things I think you should do next are: subscribe to The Archibald Project's YouTube channel - I promise you their videos will literally ignite your soul, and check out their podcast: Around the World with The Archibald Project.

My guest for The Happy Hour # 281 is Nona Jones. Nona is Founder and CEO of Nona Jones Ministries, CEO of eChurch Partners and serves as the Head of Global Faith-Based Partnerships at Facebook. She has been profiled by ESSENCE Magazine as an “Under 40 Woman to Watch," Florida Trend Magazine as one of Florida’s “30-Something All Stars," and has been recognized as an Outstanding Young Alumnus at the University of Florida. She and her husband, Tim live in Florida, and are the proud parents of Timothy, Jr. (9) and Isaac (6).

Friends, on today's show, Nona shares her story which includes childhood sexual, physical, and emotional abuse. Nona does not describe the abuse in detail. However, I want you to be aware of the topics we discuss in case those are triggers for you, so you can decide if you need to skip this episode. What Nona endured as a child and growing up is horrific, and Nona speaks about how the trauma from the broken relationships and abuse affected her in learning what being wanted and successful truly meant. In the midst of so much darkness, I got teary hearing how God showed up for Nona through the invitation of a friend in 6th grade, and when God sustained Nona through his word. As Nona puts it, her story is marked by abuse, but her life, her identity, and her purpose are all from the redemptive work of God.

Laura is a writer, blogger, podcaster, and momma, and you guys, most of those things Laura dove into just as she entered this last decade. Laura shares with us how in 2010 she had recently left a career in film and television production. She was a new mom, and was struggling with feelings of being lost and lonely. Laura began her first blog, the Hollywood Housewife which opened doors to what would become her next career. I loved Laura's honesty when she talks about how it took the last decade to get where she is today - we "all want to skip the lame stuff", but we all have to take those first steps!

Raechel is founder and CEO of She Reads Truth - an organization that, for more than 7 years, has been helping women (and men, and kids!) to be in the Word of God every day. Raechel lives outside of Nashville with her husband and two kids, and just loves the beauty, goodness, and truth of God and His world.

My friend Raechel is a woman who loves the Word of God, and we start off the show talking about the different barriers we may see to being in the word every day and even about starting or joining a Bible study! Raechel shares with us about one of her proudest accomplishments at He Reads Truth, and the difficult road she and co-founder Amanda Bible Williams walked this past year as Amanda's son Toby was critically ill throughout 2019. Raechel shares openly how she and Amanda navigated tragedy, friendship, business, and the need for rest by walking humbly in truth and love. In the last part of the show, Raechel reminds us how so important it is to listen for the truth in a world filled with so many sound bites and messages that are almost true. You guys, I told you that Raechel is a woman who loves God's word, and I hope you're inspired to try out a plan and dig into the word every day!

Today my friend Colt McCoy is joining us to talk about his last decade. In 2010, he was a senior at The University of Texas and his team went undefeated and faced Alabama in the National Championship Game in Pasadena, CA at the Rose Bowl. During that game, Colt was injured in the first half and never returned. His team ended up losing the biggest game of his career so far. Colt got married to his wife Rachel, and was drafted by the NFL that same year. Over the past decade, Colt has played for 3 different NFL teams, and he and Rachel now have 3 children. We look back today on Colt’s last decade, and no matter if you are a football fan or not, you will enjoy hearing his perspective on how he has managed the mountain tops and valleys that come from playing football for a living.

On the show today, Natalie and I talk about Africa New Life: the incredible story of how it was founded, the work they're doing, and the trip to Rwanda I'm about to take with Natalie to see it all in person! I loved hearing Natalie speak about Rwanda and her heart and passion for the country and the people. Natalie shares about the need for funding to provide food for the children and how you can help (be sure to check out the links from the show!). I also got to talk with Natalie about her journey to motherhood. Natalie honestly shares about life as a single momma and each of the beautiful stories of how she became mom to her three boys.

For the first episode of this special series, I thought it only fitting that I bring back my man, Aaron Ivey. Aaron and I reflect back on what life was like for us in 2010, and how that year stands out as such an incredibly hard year as we brought home our children from Haiti. Aaron shares about the goals he set for this last decade and how those goals were accomplished. Aaron and I also share what we learned about hospitality in those years, and that it doesn't matter what kind or size of house you have, it's how you make people feel by welcoming them in. I also end up feeling all kinds of emotions as we talk about the next ten years which includes launching all of our children out on their own!

My guest for The Happy Hour # 278 is Beth Moore. Beth is an author, speaker, and dynamic teacher whose conferences take her across the globe. She has written numerous bestselling books and Bible studies, and she is also the founder and visionary of Living Proof Ministries based in Houston, TX.

Friends, I can not think of a better way to start off 2020 than by having my friend Beth Moore on the show! Beth talks about how she looks at the new year as an opportunity to look at life in a fresh way, and to spend time reflecting with God sharing hopes for the coming year. Beth and I then talk about how she so intentionally speaks into the next generation and her passion to prepare others. You'll get to hear more about Beth's upcoming book, Chasing Vines, and that we are meant to be fruitful including when the fruit may come through suffering. One of my favorite parts of our conversation was Beth's reminder that the absolute number one thing we can pray for someone is that they love Jesus - it changes everything! In the last part of the show, Beth shares her heart and passion behind the issues she has raised concerns about, and why she believes it's so important that we talk about what it means to be Christ-like and not simply Pro-Christian.
