Recap 10/19 – Louie Kaupp’s “The Last Dad” and Bethany Connor’s “Cherished”

Here’s the link to the podcast in case you missed this AWESOME show!

What an absolutely incredible show it was today! With guests like Pastor Louie Kaupp, author of “The Last Dad: Looking for Answers When the Dad Piece is Missing” and Bethany Connor, author of “Cherished: One Woman’s Journey to Love and Be Loved”…it couldn’t be anything BUT awesome.

Right before the show began, some water got knocked over on the table, drenching all of Louie’s notes. Knowing how much wisdom he has in the Lord, I told him, Louie…you don’t need those notes…just share from your heart! And that’s exactly what he did. Such great wisdom for single moms, those who minister to single moms, and really, any parent regardless of marital status…he was a wealth of inspiration and practical take away!


Then Bethany Connor shared some of the nuggets from her book that, honestly, were just plain game-changers. Such profound truths about living an authentic life, learning who we are, and where to place our hope. I came away filled to overflowing with encouragement!

The turnout at El Jarro’s afterwards was phenomenal…lots of new listeners showed up and there was great interaction and fellowship as we continued the conversation off the air.

Share this link on your social networks and encourage your friends to listen in…this truly was one of my all-time favorite shows!

Coming Up 10/19 – Louie Kaupp with Help for Single Moms and Bethany Connor on Seeing Ourselves with His Eyes

I am SO excited about this upcoming show! Pastor Louie Kaupp has become a dear friend after I had the privilege of coaching him through the publication of his book, “The Last Dad: Looking for Answers When the Dad Piece is Missing.” During the first half hour of the show he will share incredible insights for single moms and for those who minister to them. Each chapter of The Last Dad begins with a story about Mildred, a single mom, and her son Louie. The first dad abandoned them when Mildred was 7 ½ months pregnant. The second dad enforced his rules with a bullwhip. Mother and son spent years looking for the next dad. Finally, they discovered the best dad was there all of the time. He was the last dad they would ever need.  At the end of each chapter the grown-up Louie added Reflections, looking back at life lessons they learned. They are practical and scriptural. His deepest hope is that single moms everywhere will become better acquainted with the Last Dad and discover a few simple, life-changing truths. After Reflections he added Questions to Consider, hoping the questions would provoke you to thought, dialogue, prayer, and then, discovery.
