100th episode!!!!! I seriously cannot believe it. Two years ago, starting this show, I had no idea if anyone would ever listen to this thing. I had no idea what I was doing, but I had a dream and a passion to share stories. I have had 99 amazing guests with some really incredible stories and experiences that need to be heard. And that's where YOU come in. You guys have been so faithful to listen every week, to give me good feedback, to suggest guests and make connections and to be my biggest cheerleaders. I am so unbelievably thankful for each of you. I know that sounds cliché, but I couldn't be more genuine. I wish I could give each of you a hug and kiss on each cheek and tell you thank you. Really really. So, thank you from the bottom of my heart for listening and for sharing the show with your friends.

To celebrate the 100th episode, I invited my favorite guest of all time back, my husband Aaron Ivey. But we did something a little different. For one, we had a few friends join us. We've never had a live audience, but it was so fun to have the peanut gallery chime in and give a few laughs. And secondly, on today's show, I am in the hot seat. Over the past couple of weeks, y'all sent in questions for me – everything from how I stay so fit (ha!), how I balance family and ministry, what I am reading, to who my dream guests are. Aaron had a few surprises up his sleeve, which brought me to tears a few times. I hope you love this show as much as you have loved the previous 99. I am over the moon grateful.

International Justice Mission


Slavery exists now more than ever. Today, there are 45 million men, women, girls and boys being bought, sold, trafficked and used against their will. Girls like Mien who was sold and trafficked to a brothel in Cambodia when she was just 14 years old. But there is hope. International Justice Mission is working day and night, relentlessly searching for each and every one of these lives. And when they free ONE life, they search for the next and the next and the next… Making them the largest international anti-slavery organization in the world. And if this problem seems too big for them to handle alone, you’re right. So there’s a way for you to be a part: Freedom Sunday. The idea is simple, on September 25th, 2016 your church will dedicate its service to FREEDOM – it's just one Sunday to awaken God’s people and answer his called to see slavery end for good. From the lobby, to the message, to the media –  your church will experience God’s love for justice, and be given the opportunity to join His work in ending slavery. Would you commit to asking your pastor to host a Freedom Sunday?  Someone from IJM will personally walk you through the process and give you everything you need including talking points, videos and FAQs.
