Join us today in a great conversation with singer/songwriter Laura Story as she shares her life stories and her perspective on God and faith.  Laura is absolutely delightful, relatable, and completely open as she teaches us what she’s learned through her life journey. 

Laura’s new book “So Long Normal” is a must read–I’ve read it twice.  To quote Laura:

“I GAVE UP MY PURSUIT OF NORMAL A LONG TIME AGO,” WRITES WORSHIP LEADER AND CHRISTIAN RECORDING ARTIST LAURA STORY IN HER NEW BOOK, SO LONG, NORMAL: LIVING AND LOVING THE FREE FALL OF FAITH. LAURA CONTINUES, “SURPRISINGLY, I CAN SAY THIS WITHOUT SHAME OR REGRET.”

NOT ONLY WAS SHE TERRIBLE AT TRYING TO BE NORMAL, SHE CONFESSES, BUT SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY SHE REALIZED THAT “NORMAL” WAS A VAPOR: “WHENEVER IT APPEARED WITHIN REACH, I WAS UNABLE TO GRASP IT.”

Laura is a wife, mother of four kids, a worship leader, an author of four books and an award-winning singer/songwriter. She’s also an extremely humble person in spite of her amazing success.   She won a grammy for her song “Blessings”, her “Blessings” album hit the top of the Christian charts, and she continues to produce great music and write great books.  Be sure to check out her new song, “Hello Unknown”–it’s fantastic.  Today she talks about her new book, “So Long Normal” as well as the challenges she’s faced and how God has worked in her life through those experiences.

Today we’re having a fun discussion with the Olympic skater, Scott Hamilton–an eternal optimist who has overcome many obstacles on his path to success.  Between 1981 and 1984 he won four consecutive U.S. championships, four consecutive World Championships, and a gold medal in the 1984 Olympics. He captured the world’s attention with his Olympic gold medal skating performances and has since shared his love and enthusiasm for the sport of skating as an analyst/commentator, performer, producer and best-selling author of many books including Finish First and The Great Eight.  He inspires millions of people as a motivational speaker, humanitarian, and cancer survivor. 

I read his book “Finish First” and recommend it to everyone.  Scott’s attitude toward life is contagious, and his stories both entertain and motivate the rest of us.

After losing his mother to cancer and becoming a survivor himself, Scott turned activist and launched the “Scott Hamilton Cares Foundation.”  which raises millions of dollars for cancer research.  His motto is “the only disability is a bad attitude” and in today’s conversation he shares his insight–with his sense of humor–to inspire all of us to live more intentional lives.

I’m thrilled to share our conversation with Mac Powell–one of my favorite singers ever, and the first artist who introduced me to Christian music over 20 years ago.  Mac is a gifted singer/songwriter and a really nice guy. He  was the lead singer of the band “Third Day” for 25 years.  Third Day has sold over 10 million albums, they’ve had 28 number one songs on the Christian charts, they’ve received 4 Grammy awards and 25 Dove awards, and they are in the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. Third Day had their farewell tour in June 2018, and rather than retire, Mac continues to write and record great new music.

Mac released his first solo Christian album called “New Creation” in October and it’s fantastic.  Check it out if you haven’t already–it’s 10 new songs and every single one is great.  I’ve played them so many times they’re stuck in my head!  In our interview he talks about how he produced the new album, how he writes songs, when he’ll be releasing new music, and he even shared a surprise about what’s next for his career.
