The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey

My guest for Happy Hour #88 is Amy from The Bobby Bones Show. Amy and I met several years ago during my short-lived career in radio. Since then, she and her team have gained a ton of popularity and have millions of listeners today. Most of you, I imagine, are among those millions and are familiar with Amy and The Bobby Bones Show. If not, make sure to check them out and tune in for some hilarious morning show listening.

One of the best parts of my conversation with Amy was getting the chance to hear a story from her with so much detail, honesty and vulnerability...without her co-hosts adding their commentary. Don't get me wrong. I love me some Bobby and Lunchbox, but sometimes we girls need our time without the jokers. Am I right?

Amy shares her experience of being a military wife and how protecting the health of their marriage led them to make some difficult decisions. She and her husband have struggled with infertility and are now pursuing adoption. She shares what the journey has been like for them, how God led her husband to adoption through a book and now how they are in the final steps of adopting two children from Haiti. Lastly, Amy shares the story of her mom's brave fight against cancer. If you've listened to her show, no doubt, you've heard how close Amy and her mom were. As she shares her story, how her father was in and out of the picture for so long, how she and her sister took care of her in her final days, I am confident that you will be moved by the themes of strength, grace to forgive and selflessness - both from Amy and her mother.

I already knew I loved Amy, but this conversation...gracious. I've only cried a few times on my show and turns out, this is one of them. Amy has been so faithful to use her platform to share her stories and to point her listeners to her rock and her salvation. I know you will love hearing from her.
