Pumpkin spice and peppermint mocha. Fallen leaves and family gatherings. It's hard to believe, but the holiday season is upon us. It's a beautiful time of the year, but it can also be filled with constant activity and noise. This week on the podcast, Jimmy sits down with award-winning artist Sandra McCracken to talk about the power of rest amidst all of life's chaos and mess. In a culture of noise, we need beauty more than ever to pierce through the darkness and remind us what hope feels like. Follow Sandra and her new Christmas record at http://sandramccracken.com.

We are so excited to welcome singer/songwriter Stephen Day onto the podcast.

Dr. Ryan Hanning is back, this time not as a guest but as a regular contributor. For those who missed him in season two, he's a husband to one, father to nine, brilliant scholar, and humble homesteader. Today, he and Jimmy talk about how true happiness is found in building your life around essentials not preferences. This becomes particularly true as they reflect on the joy of belonging to a particular place (in Ryan's case, his homestead outside of Nashville, TN). If you're inspired by fatherhood and family life, learn more about Love Good's new event for men by checking out http://reclaimfatherhood.com today.
To live is to change. To become perfect is to change often. How do you remain a life-long apprentice, always hungry to close the gap between who you are and who you want to be?
