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 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.”

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*
