Here it is! The song we created from YOUR responses about crazy days at church!

I was blown away by all the responses to my request last week that you describe your worst church experience in 10 words or fewer. (And by “blown away” I mean “I stayed up until 1:30 AM Wednesday night laughing until I cried.) You can see the HILARIOUS comments people left on Facebook here.

Musician Marie Miller kindly helped me put together a song using your responses as lyrics. She is extremely talented and I am a huge fan of her music — look her up on iTunes when you get a chance! (Her song 6′ 2″ is my favorite.)

Marie was my guest on my SiriusXM radio show on Thursday, and we sung the song we created based on your church disaster stories, live on the air! Check it out:

I hope it brightens your day as much as it did mine. And thank you again for the wonderful responses!

A week of daily radio shows — here we go!

That’s right, that means… [Continue Reading]

New tickets! Audrey! SiriusXM! — I’ll try not to pass out from excitement as I type this update about the 2015 Edel Gathering


When I walked into the ballroom on Saturday afternoon at last year’s E Gathering, I was surprised to see a woman sitting in the back row, dabbing tears out of her eyes with a crumpled Kleenex. Soon, almost all the women in attendance would be weeping openly in response to Marion Fernandez-Cueto’s heartfelt talk, but… [Continue Reading]

Girl on Fire: How I learned that being a “good Christian” means being truly yourself

Happy Epiphany! Happy New Year! I just got back from Nashville, where I was at the mind-blowing SEEK 2015 conference. There were 10,000 college students in attendance, and I had the honor of giving the women’s keynote. It’s the story of how I used to think that there was only one right way to be… [Continue Reading]

Your patron saint for 2015!


It’s that time of year again! I spent hours this weekend adding wonderful new saints to the list and updating the code, so the Saint’s Name Generator is cleaned up and ready to go.

Who was your 2014 angel?


The other day I came across a clip from the end of It’s a Wonderful Life, a movie which has a surprising ability to turn me into a mushy, sentimental mess. I got all teary-eyed to see how the imperfect angel, Clarence Odbody, gave George a new lease on life by coming to him in… [Continue Reading]
