1: What if Jesus Was Serious About Prayer? Skye Jethani

While God certainly cares for your needs, Skye Jethani wants you to know that prayer is not a transaction with a heavenly vending machine. Jesus didn't pray like that and neither should we. Skye takes you deeper into what Jesus had to say about prayer and how it will change the way you relate to God forever.

Skye Jethani is an author, speaker, consultant, and pastor. He also cohosts the Holy Post podcast, a weekly show that blends cultural and theological insights with comical conversation. Learn more at

3: Overcoming Fear With Perfect Love with Dr. Tim Jennings

Dr. Tim Jennings, joined Tom and Tabi and reminded us to take a deep breath and look beyond disturbing social media propaganda and gossip to truly understand the facts before reacting with fear, anxiety or anger.
