Today's guest on the Happy Hour is my friend Jennie Allen. Jennie is an author, bible study teacher, dreamer, founder of the If Gathering, wife, and mom. Jennie and her husband Zac have four kids and live in Austin.


One of my favorite things about Jennie is how she's always dreaming up something. In this podcast she even spills the beans on a new project she has going on here in Austin {Collaborate} and if you are interested you can email her:

We talk about small cities in America to visit and whether we have been there or not. What it looks like to get away as a couple and how we try to make that a priority. Jennie shares her thoughts from her trip to Rwanda with Noonday, and what it was like to visit the place her son spent the first four years of his life.

If you have journeyed through IF with Jennie, you'll enjoy hearing her tell the story of how IF was born.

I told you at the end of the podcast that I have a fun giveaway! At the time we recorded this we were both reading WHEREVER THE RIVER RUNS by Kelly Minter and I have ONE TO GIVE AWAY. Super easy to win – just leave me a comment about anything.

On this beautiful adventure through the jungles of Brazil and the tangles of the soul, Kelly rediscovers Jesus among a forgotten people living well beyond the corners of her previously defined faith – a people who draw her back to their country, their pain, and their hope in Him, again and again.

All you need to do to enter is to leave a comment and I'l pick a winner on the 9th.
