135. Charlie Peacock and Andi Ashworth | Everything Matters



Welcome back friends!

This week we’re continuing in our Mentor Couples series leading up to the launch of our new book, The Rhythm of Home, releasing June 4!  If you haven’t yet, make sure you pre-order your copy so you will be able to snag your bonuses when they become available at therhythmofus.com 

Today we’re excited to share this conversation with legendary artist and producer Charlie Peacock and his lovely wife, Andi. Charlie has written songs and produced for everyone you can think of from Amy Grant to DC Talk, and so many more. Charlie discovered and produced the first few records for Switchfoot and The Civil Wars, selling millions of copies all over the world. He and his wife Andi also founded The Art House here in Nashville, where they lived with their family, made records, and ran a ministry there for over 25 years.  They are also the authors of a wonderful brand new book, Why Everything that Doesn’t Matter, Matters So Much. 

More than all of those incredible accomplishments, though, Charlie and Andi are just two of the kindest, most grounded, humble people you could ever hope to meet.  In fact, as we listen to the stories of those in our community who have lived here for a while, time and time again, Charlie and Andi’s names will surface as mentors who have made a huge difference in someone’s life. We are so thankful for the love and care they have poured out on others, both locally and globally with the work of their lives. Grab a good cup of coffee, and maybe a pen and paper, and lean in with us as we soak up all the wisdom from this incredible couple.

Listen in.

134. Jan Peterson | A Life Well Lived



This week we’re continuing in our Mentor Couples series leading up to the launch of our new book, The Rhythm of Home, releasing June 4!

So many of the rhythms that have carried us as a couple and as a family over the years, God has taught us through these amazing couples he placed along our path, and we are so excited to share with you some of the most helpful conversations we’ve had with some of the wisest couples we know. Some new, some old that have been incredibly valuable to us along the way! 

This week we’re celebrating the anniversary of one of our favorite episodes of all time. Back in April of 2019, Jenni and I had the incredible honor of sitting down with the lovely Jan Peterson, wife of beloved pastor & author Eugene Peterson, for what none of us realized would be her very last interview.  Shortly after our time together, her health began a rapid decline, and she went home to be with Jesus on Friday, May 10, 2019.⠀

To say we were blessed by our time with Jan would be a vast understatement.  It is a gift we will treasure forever. Jan had us cracking up, tearing up, and in complete awe of a life well lived. ⠀

So today, we celebrate Jan and Eugene, and all they taught us through their life together of what it truly means to live life well. Listen in.

133: Mark and Jan Foreman | Never Say No



This week we’re starting a brand new series leading up to the launch of our new book, The Rhythm of Home, releasing June 4!

One of the ways God has faithfully led us over the years has been through bringing many older, wiser couples around us, who are enough ahead of us on the journey to offer helpful wisdom for the season we are in.  We have come to value learning from them as much as humanly possible. So many of the rhythms that have carried us as a couple and as a family over the years, God has taught us through these amazing couples he placed on our path!  So we thought it might be helpful to share some of the most valuable conversations we’ve had with some of the wisest couples we know. Some new, some old that have been incredibly valuable to us along the way! 

This week we’re featuring a conversation we had with our good friends and mentors, Mark and Jan Foreman. Mark and Jan are the parents of Jon and Tim Foreman from the band Switchfoot, pastors at North Coast Calvary Chapel, and also just happen to be the authors of one of our very favorite parenting books, Never Say No!

As you listen to Mark and Jan share, you will quickly understand why their book remains at the top of our list! We chat with Mark and Jan about how to really enjoy our kids, the importance of saying yes to the invitations from our kids to join them in adventure, and also becoming people who lead the way in our own lives by saying yes to the adventures God is calling us to take! Their wisdom and advice have truly been transformative to us both in our parenting and in our lives. We know you will be blessed and impacted as well! Enjoy our conversation with Mark and Jan Foreman.

Pull up a chair and join us, this is a great one! Listen in.
