Recovering People Pleaser, Rob Shepherd

moving the podcast – interview from July 31, 2013


Rob Shepherd is one of those names I’ve seen around almost since the moment I started blogging. I’d read many of his posts over those years, but didn’t know very much about him. Then guest Ricky Anderson suggested I talk to Rob, saying what a great guy he was and how he wasn’t afraid of anything.

I found out Rob actually is afraid of some things, after all. We talk about that, the balancing act between husband, father and pastor, and his first book, about fighting his people-pleasing addiction.

"So, when you start to understand how God has created you and really start plugging into the areas that you are gifted, it really starts to give you some confidence to do some of those things that used to be scary to you." ~ Rob

“So when you start to understand how God created you and really start plugging in
to the areas that you are gifted, it really starts to give you some confidence
to do some of those things that used to be scary to you.”

The Super, Multi-Talented Knox McCoy

moving the podcast – interview from June 26, 2013


Knox McCoy is a man of varied interests! We talked about writing and publishing and podcasting and video production…oh, and horses with swords on their foreheads. That are not unicorns. Because unicorns are evil.

And also, I just liked listening to his voice because I totally crush on it. Isn’t it lovely? *sigh*

I’m sorry, what were we talking about?

moving the podcast – interview from May 22, 2013


Leanne Shirtliffe is a busy woman! And still she took a big chunk of time out of her evening to sit down and talk to me about her new book Don’t Lick The Minivan!

After we figured out how to work the Google Hangout thing, we talked about her writing process, depression and raising twins. And she gives us a special sneak peek at her upcoming projects!
