015: Shelley Giglio

I am so honored to have Shelley Giglio on the podcast today.

Shelley Giglio is the chief strategist, director of label operations and artist management for Sixstepsrecords, an Atlanta-based record label. She and her husband Louie, pastor of Passion City Church, lead the Passion movement committed to spreading the fame of Jesus Christ to college students around the globe. In addition, the Giglio’s planted Passion City Church in 2009 and reside in Atlanta, Georgia along with their beloved Goldendoodle London.

Shelley has traveled the world and has witnessed God at work everywhere, but always comes back to where she is rooted, her everyday life, and serves there. Thriving to Shelley is being rooted in a place, in a person named Jesus, and in His Word. As we stay planted, our branches will grow and expand which will allow us to provide shade, a refuge, for others who come across our path.

Shelley very eloquently paints a picture of how reading God’s word, the Bible, provides “the roadmap” for each of us. She tells us, “God has carved a path for you, and if you align your life with His plan, you will flourish.”  We talk about marriage, trust, dark times, renewing your mind with God’s truth, and that you shouldn’t ever waste time comparing yourself to others, it will steal your joy.

If you are in the Atlanta area I encourage you to attend The GROVE!  The GROVE is a monthly gathering of the women of Atlanta and is hosted by Shelley Giglio and The GROVE Team.  No matter your age, your status, your style, or whether you think you have it all together or not, you are welcome at The GROVE. You are invited to come, rest, worship, learn, and be, as we celebrate the power and greatness of Jesus.  Check out The GROVE!

Here’s my interview with Shelley Giglio.

011: Jamie Ivey

1024 683 Thriving Beyond Belief

My interview this week is with Jamie Ivey. Jamie hosts a podcast called The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey, she lives in Austin, TX, is a wife to Aaron, and together they have four kids under the age of 13.

On the podcast this week I want to focus on an incredible book Jamie just finished writing entitled If You Only Knew: My Unlikely, Unavoidable Story of Becoming Free.  Her book is scheduled to be released January 2018.  

In this book, she is honest, vulnerable, and raw with personal stories about her walk from failure to freedom.  Jamie travels and speaks to so many women and has learned that our stories, when seen through the eyes of the gospel, are not the obstacles to our freedom, they are the key to unlocking our freedom!

We talk about the enormous fear she faced being afraid people would know the real “Jamie:” could she step into a marriage, be a pastor’s wife, lead youth, but inside be completely unsure if God even loved her?  

As her story unfolds, she shares how God kept pursuing her and only through the grace of God, she began to change and learn to truly have an intimate relationship with Him.

Jamie challenges women to ask themselves; are you fearful others will only see you for things you’ve done, not what Jesus has done in you?
