Season 3 Episode 42 – Summer Book Club: When Jesus Lives On Your Street – Mike Delamont tells Donna and Kevann about “The Art of Neighboring” by Jay Pathak and Dave Runyon, a book he found both convicting and helpful. As a “raging extrovert,” Mike didn’t think this book would have a lot to teach him about how to be a good neighbour. He quickly realized that the art of neighbouring means moving your life out of the backyard and into the front yard where you can actually see who lives around you and becoming intentional about being interruptible.
Season 3 Episode 41 – Summer Book Club: A Case of Identity Theft – For the first time on Grow on the Go, both of Donna’s daughters, Kevann and Kendall, join her on the podcast to discuss the devotional book “The Forgotten Way Meditations: The Path of Yeshua for Power and Peace in this Life” by Ted Dekker. They talk about freedom from perfectionism, people-pleasing, clinging to roles, and why God is never disappointed in us.
Season 3 Episode 40 – Summer Book Club: Soul Maintenance – Krista Marshall brings “The Book of Forgiveness” by Desmond Tutu and Mpho Tutu to the podcast and chats with Donna to continue the Summer Book Club series. They talk about trauma experiences, including experiencing an earthquake and emotional wounding, and how this book has helped them with the process of forgiving. They also discuss four practical steps and hands-on exercises to help us extend empathy to others and embrace healing for ourselves.
Season 3 Episode 39 – Summer Book Club: What Would Love Do? – Donna and Kevann talk about “Love Does” by Bob Goff, a great book exploring the relationship between whimsy and faith. They chat about several life lessons the author has learned through really outlandish choices and circumstances in his life. Through them, he shows us how to engage with God to change the world.
Season 3 Episode 38 – Summer Book Club: The Story of Shame – Donna and Kevann unpack “Post Secret” by Frank Warren, a coffee table book that, in a creative way, surfaces the topic of how to manage the shame we carry. They talk about the difference between guilt and shame, the origin of shame storms and the beautifully intense vulnerability of a whole life confession.
Season 3 Episode 37 – Summer Book Club: Don’t Judge Me – Need some summer reading? This new Grow on the Go series will have some great recommendations! In the first episode, Donna chats with her husband Randy about “Judges for You” by Timothy Keller, a book that changed his mind about the book of Judges in the Bible. While not exactly light summer reading, this book helped Randy go from a pattern of 15 years of avoiding Judges to understanding how it speaks to us.
