Episode 010 // Casey And Jen Pollock Michel Talk About the Wisdom of Heading Home

We're back! After a brief delay due to some other projects, the podcast is back with a conversation with author and speaker Jen Pollock Michel. 

Jen is a well-known speaker and author of Teach Us to Want, the 2015 Christianity Today Book of the Year as well as Keeping Place: Reflections on the Meaning of Home.  She is also part of a writer's collective called the Redbud Writer's Guild, which seeks to fearlessly expand feminine voice in our communities, faith, and culture. 

Jen and her family live near Toronto, Canada. 

In this interview we talk about the wisdom of understanding our desires and what place the concept of "home" plays in our spiritual lives. You can keep up with Jen on her website

In the first episode of the otherWISE podcast, Casey talks about why it was IDIOCY to create a new podcast when so many podcasts are created every single day. He also talks about how we need to just "make the thing" and how learning to become more human will lead us towards Jesus. 

Casey and his wife Holley have been married for 18 years and have a beautiful daughter they call "The B." They live in the Chicago area. Casey is an author, pastor, and spiritual director whose books include Becoming Curious: A Spiritual Practice of Asking Questions (2017) and As I Recall: How God Uses Our Memories to Shape Our Spirits (projected 2019)
