A conversation about how we have spiritually healthy conversations, online or in person.
This week on the otherWISE podcast we talk with author and speaker Liz Ditty about her new book, God's Many Voices: Learning to Listen, Expectant to Hear. This book launches AUGUST 21ST so we're happy to help get the word out about an important book on hearing from God through the different stories, situations, and issues we face in life.
Today on otherWISE our guest is Jarrett Stephens, author of The Mountains Are Calling: Making the Climb for a Clearer View of God and Ourselves available August 7th.
We talk about vacations, Christian camps, and what it is like to live through the challenges of abuse.
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.

Episode 006 // Casey And C. Christopher Smith Talk About How Reading and Conversation Can Rescue Our Communities
A conversation with Sarah Bessey on everything from wisdom in the local church to spiritual gifts and how both deconstruction & Christian feminism can help us into a new and beautiful future.
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.
