Lauren Lee on the P&W Podcast

June 5th, 2020 No comments

Episode 12 features special guest, Lauren Lee of North Point Worship! She has released a couple new songs with the group in 2020, which is a year she hoped would have “less polish and more authenticity”. We talked about this season and worship leaders she’s appreciating lately. Plus, the story behind “Light Breaking Through“, which came out of her experience with postpartum depression. We talked about our middles names, her obsession with punctuality and much more!

Today’s lineup includes a “Victory Over the Grave” mini-theme! Plus, a New Release Roundup with Bethel Music, North Point Worship and Bright City. 

Here’s the link to the #GravesIntoGardensChallenge funny video I mentioned.

This week I caught up with Paul McClure of Bethel Music, who shared so many good things: a report on his recent 34th birthday, his love of golf, worship leading tips, perspective on navigating tough times, and allllll about the recent Bethel Music 17-song live worship project “Revival’s In The Air”!

I also talked with devotional music singer/songwriter Jon Guerra last week, and the visual album of his latest record, “Keeper of Days” is out everywhere! Here’s a link to watch.

Praise & Worship Playlist

May 10th, 2020 No comments

This morning’s playlist is filled with songs led by worship leading moms! Moms who know highs and lows, the process of adoption, the journey of infertility, the pain of loss, and delight of many children.  Each one encouraging us to bring our praise in every season.

I recently spoke with Kirby Kaple, who experienced a 7-year infertility journey before her daughter Lollia arrived! She shares her story, and we compare a few notes in the latest Praise & Worship Podcast.

There’s also an episode of the podcast with David Leonard. He and his wife also had a discouraging season involving waiting and miscarriage. He talks about it, and the songs that came out of that experience.

Personally, after a loss this year, I’m feeling like this Mother’s Day is lemon juice on my raw heart. Click here to hear a little more of my story, and my encouragement to you if you’re in the same boat!

Here’s a link to my Spotify Playlist. Songs that really helped me fix my eyes (and heart and hopes) on Jesus through my own journey to becoming a mom.

Our circumstances are extra unusual and discouraging this year, but I hope today is still special and meaningful for you moms!

Kirby Kaple on the P&W Podcast

May 7th, 2020 No comments

Episode 11 features special guest, Kirby Kaple of Housefires! I’m truly thrilled to bring you our conversation. Housefires is releasing brand new singles these days, with a very special new studio version of “I’ll Give Thanks”. Kirby co-wrote and sung it while on a 7-year infertility journey, and now is talking about it from the other side. IVF is part of her story, so listen for details on her process. There are also keys here for worship leaders, leading through their own very difficult seasons. And, as Kirby and I are both quarantined at home for this interview, spoiler alert, our kids and dogs adorably interrupt!

Praise & Worship Podcast: New Episode

March 29th, 2020 No comments

Listen to Episode 7 on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or Soundcloud or right here!

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is IMG_6931.jpg

Today is the 3rd Sunday in a row that my family watched our church service from home. These weeks have involved new adjustments along with a lot to process. You can probably relate! Songs are helping. I heard from lots of friends about what they’re singing these days during this week’s #worshipleaderwednesday conversation on social media. And I caught up with worship leader, Jared Anderson, to find out how he and his large family are impacted by the Coronavirus. They’re on official lockdown in Colorado. I asked him about his song picks for this season, too. He’s been going LIVE on social media each evening for Nights of Song (6-7 Eastern), sometimes with a friend or family members. I loved that Jared shared his heart and mind, and that he’s sharing the gift of music as an offering to help others while also steadying his family. I also 100% love that Jared is fun to talk with and lives in a colorful home!

Episode 7 also features Neal Harmon, CEO of VidAngel: a filtering service with access to familiar titles and original content, allowing you to skip the stuff you’d otherwise fast-forward and mute. That’s good news if you need a laugh from Dry Bar Comedy or are looking for something spiritual for the family like The Chosen. You may have heard about this first-ever multiple-episode tv series based on the life of Jesus and the impact he had on those closest to him. My husband and I recently binged it. So, as a fan, I was eager to geek about about with Neal. Listen to the podcast to find out when season 2 is coming out – and how it’s being affected by the Coronavirus. Plus, Neal shares his favorite character and scene, and some fun stories behind-the-scenes.

Praise & Worship Podcast with Cory Asbury

January 31st, 2020 No comments

Stream Cory’s episode on SoundCloud, Spotify or Apple Podcasts.

Cory Asbury has had a big week. He posted a blog with answers to all the big questions he’s getting lately about his time off in 2019, including a break from social media. He also shared a collection of family video clips about that Year of Surrender. As far as music, his new single, “The Father’s House” released studio and acoustic versions (last Friday and today, respectively.) One more contribution to the frenzy: an appearance on WJTL’s Praise & Worship Podcast! We talk about his experience from giving it all up to his fruitful return. Plus, the lizards in Texas, how God moves in seasons and when the rest of the new album will release.

I hope it encourages you! (And enjoy the sounds of his family throughout. I felt it was appropriate to keep them in.)

My Dawson McAllister Interview

March 3rd, 2014 No comments

My very first radio “experience” was back in the early 90’s on “Dawson McAllister Live”.  I was in Jr. High at the time and loved listening to WJTL for hours and hours a day.  Dawson’s show aired live Sunday nights; and I listened in while doing last-minute homework assignments.  I really connected with the callers and how Dawson helped them through crisis situations.  So, I wrote in to be a prayer partner.  One day, I got a phone call from a nice lady saying that Dawson wanted to interview me on the show.  What a shock, what a privilege!  The lady set it all up.  That Sunday, I cleared everybody out of the kitchen and did a few tests to make sure the phone rang like it should.  I sat on a stool and stared at the phone, waiting for the big moment…  After what felt like about a zillion years, the phone rang and someone explained what would happen.  I still remember hearing Dawson introduce me on his show as “Kristi From Pennsylvania”.  I was pretty nervous and remember saying mostly “yes” and “uh-huh” to his questions about what it meant to me to be one of his prayer partners.  It. was. awesome!

Fast forward about 20 years and now the tables will turn!  I’ll be interviewing Dawson this Thursday about an event he’s coming to town to host.  It’s still all cenetered around passion for youth, and I’m thrilled that we’ll get to chat again!  I plan to say more than “yes” and “uh-huh” this time.  ;]

I hope you you’ll tune in and hear it live this Thursday around 2:30 p.m.  Below, you’ll find the details on his upcoming event.
