moving the podcast – interview from February 4, 2014
Episode 24. Cherie talks about how modern technology effects friendship, the questions she’s asked most often, and why it is sometimes hard to open up and be vulnerable within our friendships. We also discuss why communication is so very important to all of our relationships.
“You can have a lot of different friends that are on a surface level, but if you don’t have somebody in your life who understands you for who you really are, that’s when those sad lonely feelings start creeping in.”

Matt is just a genuinely nice guy. He has a heart for service and Jesus and I think teaching. I wanted to talk to him about his work for Cru, a Christian non-profit that’s active in 191 countries across the globe. We did that, and then we did a little verbal globe-trotting ourselves! We talk about his foreign travels, how he gets paid to go to the beach on spring break, and the importance of being of service to other people.
“Instead of making myself the center of a ministry…I’m coming in as a servant
to other people and the body of Christ, and I’m saying ‘what has the Lord
put on your heart…and how can I help you accomplish that?'”

I asked my parents, my aunt, my nephew and his friends a bunch of questions. They were separated into a “grown-ups” group and a kids group when I recorded them, because I wanted to see how the different age groups were alike or similar in their answers. Then I put their answers back to back on the podcast.

I have adored JR. Forasteros practically from the first Storymen video. His laugh is contagious, his enthusiasm is infectious, and wow, I just made him sound like a virus.
But JR. truly is a story man, and that’s something we have in common. Except for the man part. Anyway, we both love stories and characters and really great movies. Like Star Trek Into Darkness!
I was thrilled when JR. agreed to come on the podcast, and it was pure joy to talk about something I love with someone who loves it too. (Bonus points if you can guess how many times we say “right!” to each other.)
