My guest for The Happy Hour #156 is Andrea Lucado. Andrea is a freelance writer based in Austin, Texas. As the daughter of bestselling author and pastor Max LucadoAndrea inherited an obsession with words and their arrangement. She has a master’s degree in English literature from Oxford-Brookes University and contributes regularly to online and print publications such as Relevant magazine and She recently released a book, English Lessons.

In our conversation, we chat about Andrea growing up as a preacher's kid. She shares about her journey in owning her faith – not because it was what was expected or what was culturally acceptable, but because she had a personal, authentic relationship with Jesus.

Andrea also shares about her routine to abstain from social media on the weekends – taking apps off her devices on Friday and re-d0wnloading on Monday. You'll hear about how social media can trigger some major sin struggles in both of us. And if you can relate, maybe you'll consider joining us in creating some boundaries around time spent on social media.
