Never Spend Your Emergency Fund Again
"Today I want to talk about what it might look like if you use a little bit of a tactic in the software I don't talk about the software per se very often but I wanted to give you a little tip today a lot of times when people are following wine ebbers specific where fallen rule to. Their embracing their true expenses it means that they're looking ahead and they're trying to find those larger less frequent expenses and they're breaking them up into manageable monthly amounts. So Christmas if you're gonNA spend twelve, hundred dollars a year easy math. You would take the twelve hundred dollars you divided by twelve, and then you would give yourself a one hundred dollar monthly bill. You could do the same thing for an HVAC repair. You could do the same thing for your Bosh Dryer not recommended and replace that thing so. You're always looking ahead to those larger amounts and then you're saying, okay, what would I need to save or set aside these are traditionally called sinking funds and put him right into wine APP and it's your category where you build up that money over time. Clear. What a lot of the time traditional advice would be. You have an emergency fund and that also makes good sense. Right? We're living in a bit of an emergency year. So you would say, well, I'm going to have three to six months of expenses saved for an emergency. What happens is you have wine numbers that. Don't have emergencies anymore, and the reason is because they're falling in to they're looking ahead and they're thinking about those expenses will come up their true expenses and they are embracing them with love affection and money because you need that third thing. More than any other so. When you are not having emergencies anymore do you still need an emergency fund? You may call that fun now. Something like. Something that really really caught us off guard that we did not see coming and the next time we'll see coming. That's a little bit along category name, but the idea is something happens and it really does catch you guard and it wasn't part of your rule to true expenses. You don't have a sinking fund setup that's when you could use an emergency fund. What I want you to do in the software is never spent directly from that blanket kind of grove. Emergency, Fund category. Instead I want you to make sure that you're always moving money to where that money actually will be used. So if you didn't foresee HVAC going out. How how I do not know but you don't foresee that. And is not covered under warranty. So you're going to have to get rid of actual cash. You could set up a category called home appliances repair something like that or more specifically HVAC I don't think it should be that specific but home appliances, maintenance and repair. And then you would move the money from your emergency fund that little pile of money used for things that you didn't actually budget for and you move the money to the home appliance repair category, and then you would spend that unfortunate large dollar amount from that category. Why? This is what gives you data for going forward. So you will not be caught on your hills again. So you never spent directly if you have an emergency fund category in Why am because you've just got cash set aside I don't know what will happen. This is truly for emergencies not because my car tires wore out, that's not an emergency that. Happens, but you have an actual emergency that takes emergency money. You would then move it to a category for the actual spending. So then you have the historical data to point back to and say, Oh, next time next time that will not catch us off guard
Donald Trump and Melania Trump both test positive for COVID-19
"The October surprise is a cherished part of US presidential election mythology the late breaking game changer with engineer contrivance or priests of. Two Thousand and twenty s octo surprise seems to have come early. President, DONALD TRUMP and first lady melania trump have both tested positive for covid nineteen and will now be self isolating. It is just thirty two days until the presidential election joining me with more on this Dr Chris Smith Monocle two, thousand, four, hundred and science correspondent and Scott Lucas professor of US Politics University of Birmingham Chris First of all would it possibly actually have been more of an October surprise if none of the key figures in this election came down with the illness I think. So I'm pretty surprised actually the. They've oh, taken. So long to catch it if you wind your mind back to SORTA March April time, Prince Charles was one of the first people note in the UK when the first high profile people who meet a lot of people to catch it. Then thankfully recover on therefore slightly surprised that Donald Trump and other people who are on the presidential campaign trail have encountered court and demonstrates this before maybe they have maybe that time they didn't know maybe this time they do maybe this time they're saying something about it. Scott Lucas. DC will just right now be waking up to this news and trying to understand how it is going to affect the last month of campaigning What do you think obviously debates again to have to be remote if they going to be held at old trump won't be able to hold anymore rallies and presumably the bulletin team will now all have to be tested and may have to isolate as will. Probably, what Chris said, we're shocked that this had come out before that the by campaign team probably had gained for this type of possibility. They will have been testing regularly, and of course, Joe Biden is in the middle of a train stopped tour of key swing states such as Ohio, and Pennsylvania. So they'll go ahead as much as you can be normal in the next month while offering hopes for the recovery of Donald Trump along as well as trump's close aide. Hope Hicks. I think it's the trump campaign that'll be in disarray today trying to figure out what to do Let me just say for a couple reasons why I? As we've noted trump no longer has his primary outlet of campaign rallies, large gatherings without mass without social distancing where he just rambled for sixty ninety minutes and try to grab headlines. Secondly, a, you're in a position where corona virus goes back to being the number one issue in the campaign and the trump campaign hoping to bury it or push it to the side. Let's talk about Supreme Court. Let's talk about trump's cultural war against that extremist anarchist. Let's not talk about two, hundred, ten, thousand Americans who are dead closing seven and a half million cases, and then thirdly, this actually I think undermines disinformation the trump campaign had put out about Joe Biden being physically mentally unfit indeed remember. If you remember, he goes back that far enough that they mopped Biden for supposedly being in the basement for observing coronavirus restrictions and not coming out and campaigning publicly before the start of June. It looks Joe Biden's white wise right. Now while the questions over judgment physical health, we'll be about Donald trump and four years ago. Of course, President Trump mocked, Hillary Clinton for becoming ill with what looked like pneumonia during the campaign, Chris. Is it possible that this might make a difference, one way or the other to how seriously Americans take this I mean, might hopefully make it clear to trump's base that this virus is real and it is dangerous but alternatively should trump not appear to too badly affected and should he recover quickly that might rather dangerously amplify his narrative that it's not that big a deal Martin did it could go either way couldn't it and indeed? He has the odds in his favor even in a person's eighties that chance of making a recovery in other words not succumbing to grove infection as well north of ninety percent. So it's not to give him that just because someone who is his age mid seventies who has other pre existing health conditions? He he does have obesity they will increase risk. It's not a given though that he'll come off worse for this he make. A complete recovery probably most people do and the other thing to bear in mind is, is this genuinely the first time? He's had it because it may well be he has become reinfected and this time perhaps I'm speculating wildly here and I might be completely wipe them up but wouldn't it be wonderful if he ends up I've got this of course it but then bounces back incredibly fast and demonstrates how powerful he really is. you can see that working well for him. You can also see this for the reason, Scott that you mentioned it playing badly for him in that it does amplify covid nineteen as an issue in the in the minds of most voters but. What are the actual practical considerations here? I. Mean You mentioned the Supreme, court nomination to fill that vacancy left by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. CanNot actually go ahead and I guess the big question is there any doubt whatsoever about the actual election at this point? Assuming that. Kony Barrett did not get corona virus donald trump when she made a public appearance alongside him six days ago. Yeah. This can go ahead because you're talking about the hearings that take place. In the Senate. which will be socially distanced I'm sure. So Mitch McConnell push that through the problem for the trump campaign, they can no longer make that the headline event and try to galvanize their supporters around given these circumstances. Secondly, on the delay of the election is extremely difficult to delay the election you have to amend. Through Congress an act from eighteen forty, five, i. think the practicalities of that are very, very difficult and I think it's a huge gamble for Republican senators, some of whom are facing difficult reelection battles to do that because the Democrats will say, they're just trying to use a pretext to push this this back because remember, we've been facing a donald trump who has been saying if I don't like the election result, I don't have to observant I can stay in the White House that I think undercuts the effort that could be made to say look there's A legitimate reason given the pandemic to push the date back. Scott. Lucas Christmas thank you both very much for joining
Trader Joes Napa Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 Review
"And cheap wine fighter.com coming again with a kind of a fun one. Well, at least it was fun like adults playing until off the fires and Napa Valley half and all the tragedy and people lost their lives and grape Vineyards that have burned and raped Wineries and people lost their life's work off. But rather to be a downer when I dressed wine, this one is called the Trader Joe's Platinum Reserve Cabernet, Sauvignon, Oakville, Napa Valley 2018 lot 97 There have been a couple of bumper crops in Napa Valley Sonoma that area so there was Surplus and then the covid-19 off but these are wines and so to restaurants and for parties and none of that's going on right now. So there was a trip plus and there was going to be a great many wines that were going to be a prices. They usually never AR CNET and Trader Joe's was starting to show this was a velour the Palm Spring Mountain at Atlas Peak and there might be another one all Napa some Indian from a high-end subdivision small places. I think the Oak Grove that's where Screaming Eagle is front Screaming Eagles when it was 100 Point perfect lines themselves in the thousands of dollars and I figured out I'm going to have a 1490. I have one that off. Ghost videos of Vineyard within two miles of that place or or something like that. I don't know where the vineyard is. They don't tell you that when you're paying $49 for high-end. Well, I'll tell you about you all the details, you know with Cooperage what force the old came from who's arrived start with winemaker the history of the winery all and for the price of these things and when you don't offer you get cheaper, so I don't know if there's still going to be a a glut is just the last gasps Trader Joe's were you want to run out and find these small production wines? I think there was a little bit less than five thousand cases. There's twelve thousand twelve bottles off the case for each of these but which you know is a lot of wine, especially when it's a nationwide distribution. So, you know on a Thursday Supposed to go to continue there's resorting lions and in the works that are coming our way out of cheap price, but you know a lot of that, you know a big deal any more with the fires are happening there and you'll see the devastation and I know you know people lost their lives people of lost history things. They worked on forever. You know, I just saw a man who had 100,000 bottles in one of his buildings in the building burned burned out. It's just, you know, it's crazy drink to him. I'm going to do that. So I don't know if this is gonna be the last of the cheap wines from Napa Valley. They're coming up or what? But they're good the 1499. There's over those got a nose that is worth you just smelling it all the different Roma's going on in there is worth forty nine thousand. I mean you don't get that and just regular then there is a reason why these Appalachians are famous and this is a 2018. It's not a young age worthy. Why that's drink it now. Maybe you could put it away for a couple of years if you want to you know, but it doesn't need to you can drink it right now, but it tastes great. It's got a lot of flavor. It's got its Sleek doesn't have a lot of Weights medium weight on the palate. It's liquid has a ton of flavor. It's you know, it's just kind of flows money's nice deal II 1499. It kicks butt Trader Joe's says that it's if it were a retail branded. Did you have an air brand on it? What's so for about $30 and $30 Napa cabs are starting to really ride, you know that when it starts getting more expensive a lot of that is because of its more often. It's it's rarer line mean, there's not enough to go around you gotta pay to get them but you really hitting some really good wines when you get dirty on the upper end or you can go higher the 13 get you some good one. And and this

She is the founder and CEO of Monica Andy An organic baby and children's clothing company. Monica had the idea to launch her company literally from the hospital after she gave birth. Who've with the mission of being the most thoughtful children's brand ever created and as we'll get into entrepreneurship definitely runs in her family Monica. Thank you for joining us today welcomed skin from the couch Danielle. Thank you so much for having me. I'm super excited to be here. Thank you. So I just WanNa say that like literally I think one of the days after I had told our team that I. Was Pregnant I had a call with Monica and I was like only slightly panicked about the fact that I was maybe a first time mom and really had no clue what I was doing and was like everyone keeps telling me I need a lay at and I don't even know what that is and Google that and Monica was like such a calming presence and literally knows this case inside a now. Thank you so much what we're is really excited to welcome people into Motherhood, in new, parenthood. So congratulations to you. Thank you. So let's start with an easy question scam your resume. To actually take back to what you can't see on link to in, which is that I came from a very hardworking family and so at the age of twelve, my mom was the manager, the ultrasound department at Good Samaritan. Hospital in Downers Grove and she's like you're gonNA start volunteering. So she went an air sign me up I was working at the front desk outpatient registration and that at fourteen she was like job permit time. So we went I started stocking the shelves at now very defunct retail store of which I. Can't even remember the name but work ethic with something was really important to my parents and so I spent all the time before I graduated from college with all of my summer jobs in the hospital. So physical therapy like you name it I worked all around the hospital when University of Illinois in Champaign Urbana graduated and I immediately got a job in the pharmaceutical industry. So I spent the first decade doing absolutely nothing related to what I'm currently doing but I worked at both Pfizer and Novartis for that decade which was. Very different from currently in that I launched. Monica. Nandy officially in July of twenty fourteen. So now this is my new baby and what I've been most recently working on what's something that we can't Google about you or look up on Lincoln I originally wanted to be a marine biologist. nine or ten old I would have told you wanted to be a marine biologist terrified of the ocean look at seeing but being in it. So that was sort of a non starter, the marine biology career, but I remained totally obsessed with like orcas. Great White Sharks in my very favorite place to travel as the San Juan islands outside of Seattle, marine, biologist, and pharmaceutical industry. This is all very, very interesting. So we're GONNA get into your family. And the support system that you've built around you. But I when I was talking to you a few weeks ago, you were talking about your mom and how her story had such an impact on you tell us about what it was like growing up in your house. What kind of expectations were there? Yeah. So my mom is an immigrant from India. She moved here from India's her dad was dying of Emphysema and some money home when she was nineteen. Years old as I have always a revered both of my parents Andy I always say that will never win the lottery because we did the first time by the parents that we got. So a massive amount of respect for both of them. But my mom, there was something about the family that she came from her family was very matriarchal in in a society in India that was much the opposite in. So my grandfather had nine children altogether the first. Five of which were girls as in India, like at that time most people wanted boys but my grandfather really cherish having girls in he educated each of them like they were boys and so when my mom came here, she came here on sheer well of the education that she had received and so education was of the utmost importance specifically for my mom mom was the only person in her family to marry outside of her Indian cultures or a dad is. Know his ancestors from European background and so my brother and I were so close growing up because we were so different from everybody else we were between world instead of fitting into any world in particular and so I think that unique experience really shaped the adults that we became.

So that we can let everybody on it actually feels a little more efficient. But it's good. All. I'm happy to be here on thrilled for that you are. So we met each other a lot of years ago. Yes. And somewhere along the way. Interestingly enough. And I was recounting to a friend that last time rich your husband was here. He was reminding me that as a college student, he used to drive to it. Lilia. We both did, which I think, is the craziest, we. Part of my life that kind of forgotten about a little bit. Not seven twenty two that was a profound season of our life. But honestly, that you guys would have been in that room blows my mind a little bit given that we're such friends now. And that we've kind of come full circle to this place of knowing each other in this moment in life. I'm like, what the what it's crazy to think about because we were in college in Tennessee. And we would drive just for seven twenty two and the imprint that you and Louis on our hearts, really, by seeing this movement of young adults. Is what led us to go back to Miami? Right out of college and serve with riches parents, who they passer inner city church in Miami. And it's what we witnessed at seven twenty two that really lit a fire, and our hearts to start young adult ministry, and Miami. And that was the beginning of this thing stepping in a ministry for us. We dove headfirst I was thinking earlier, just about richest parents and said, such a heritage and both of your family's lives that have built into your ministries. I'm so grateful for them. Honestly, I not very many people have that kind of legacy in their life as they step into being ministers of the gospel that you guys kind of have both sides talk about that. What that's meant to you, little rich, and I've been together for seventeen years now, I've actually known him longer than I have not. When you before you crash that thresholds just amazing. So when, when I met rich, you know, when you marry a person you marry their family. And when rich and I fell in love. I came to Miami. I remember as a seventeen year old and his entire family and the beautiful crazy. Miraculous.

"She and her husband Bryson are the pastors of our Cumberland location here at passion city, where you'll find them any given Sunday with their four kids in tow, and this talk imile serve as the book of Fijian's in what it looks like to live a life of holiness. She challenges us not to cheapen the gift of the cross by living a life of less as she shares with honesty and vulnerability about her own journey in ways, we can all relate to her message brings conviction, but also so much encouragement. So we trust you'll be so grateful for it. Here's Emily vocal tans live at the grove. I can't decide if I want to sit down or stand up. It depends on how excited I get in a minute part of my my job with the grove is probably my favorite part of my job is that I get to a few times month sit across the table from women. Just like you. I get to learn your stories. I get to celebrate God's joining your life. Just get to know the women that we get to minister in serve here at the grove and at passion city church, and I love it. But over the course of the last several years, I realized that a lot of us are struggling and wrestling with the same questions and the same insecurities time and time again, I'll sit across the table from woman in she'll say things like I don't feel like I'm enough. I don't feel like I'm doing enough. I see some heads nodding a here other questions like this. I should probably be a better mom, I need to do better at work or school. I need to be a better wife. I've got to work on that God is probably disappointed in. Me. I'm so far behind I need to catch up with everybody else. I should've done more with my life by now. Is my three minutes when I hide for my children to read my bible, enough, anybody everything though, and that's a real concern. It's usually in the bathroom when you're doing that. We laugh about that. But we wear those insecurities women we wear them like a wet blanket weighing down that we are defeated most mornings, if we're honest, and I've been through seasons of life where I feel defeated before I even step out of my bed. And by the time, I go to sleep at night before my head hits the pillow, I feel defeated we get bent out of shape, and it breaks my heart that we wrestle with these questions, and we get been out of shape because we're comparing our lives with the world around us when the world around us was never meant to be are measuring tape. It was never meant to be our roadmap. It was never meant to be our guide. And so as I've wrestled with those questions because I've had every single one of those questions have come to a place where there's a better question that we can ask a more freeing question, we can ask ourselves tonight. And it's a simple clarifying question as we look at the Linz of our life and how we're supposed to live this. Life in the question is this am I becoming more like Jesus every single day? That's it. That's the question. Am I becoming more like Jesus in my reflecting Jesus in my life today? When I wake up in the morning. The first thing I need to think of today in my reflecting, my becoming more like Jesus are my eyes locked on him. Have you ever been seen racehorses they wear blinders on the left and right of there is right? So they don't look to the left or right there. Just looking straight ahead. And that's what we're called to do. That's what we need to do. Not looking at the girl next to us not comparing our life with the person next to us. But just asking Jesus help me look more. Like you helped me imitate. You helped me be like you. I've got one shot at this life. And I wanna be like, you Jesus. All right. If you've got a bible, I want you to open up to equations four one that's going to be in the New Testament. And if you're taking notes, oh, my board is so. Far away, and the Indus we're gonna have a little classroom time..

"You can also I know that we've been able to get fixtures and two ways and racks from stores, maybe that are going out of business or even if they're not going out of business. They are getting they're they're getting new things. And so they're willing to part with those things I know that a couple churches that I spoke with they had dry cleaners that were donating hangers for them because they couldn't buy hangers. But you really do need hangers. If you're gonna hang things up, you know. And so that was something that was super helpful that I've talked to people that they've been able to do I mean, even Keira here who's asking us these questions and talking with us. She's amazing and super creative. And she. She came up with chicken wire and hanging the hanging. Our scarves from it in this amazing beautiful display that I think is better than anything that I've ever seen in any store before. And I go in a lot of stores. So so you can get you just you have to be creative. You know? I mean, just have to really be creative. But it's fun because then you can express yourself, and you know, in your design elements and everything so it's probably one of the biggest things that we've learned just to not be deterred or discouraged when you don't know doing. We would never anything done around here. If we were so I would say just lean into that vision. And know that if Jesus is giving you that vision, he's going to give them provide their need, and there's there's so much room and space to kinda learn as you go just what we've done I think year to year and year after year it gets sweeter. You get to learn from what you've experienced adjust and really just get to experience joy altogether. As long. We keep keep open house scripture says we're allied on the hill we want to keep open house and share with others generosity. Jesus. Shared with us. Then you really can't go, right? Learned very true. So we look forward to the next grove swap. We hope this has been really helpful for you guys wanted to encourage you to look.

"A good experience for everyone. So this kind of helps helps you start off on the right foot with that. But that walk in. We'll have fun playing. We usually have like a DJ. We have different photo opportunities. We'll have some of our guys from our house served mock tales, which is fun. It's always a big hit just zip and suits. They love it. And then they'll be able to try on the clothing's dressing rooms really utilize all of our different rooms in our house from wall to wall weight is a great way to space you have this. I think that that can make a great experience houses are buildings every place that we have here. Church. Yes. Which is incredible on it. It's very intentional, which is awesome. But as they're are leaving you wanna make sure, and we we really challenge this at the experience from beginning to end so ending with the checkout process. And what that looks like so make it clear make it easy and access -able for the guest. Also that way, you have a process of collecting your resources that way, they can be reused that helps you from prevent you from having to repurchase everything, which is your tokens. You're. Oh, yeah. Bags just everything. And then to that's a great last touch point. And that's personal interaction. You gotta have with the ladies that are coming in which I think we you the most in that's really the favorite part of our our that's also when we hear stories about what people came in needing and what they're actually leading with. We've been blown away. You've heard some of like the experience of what they what they experienced earlier in the podcast, but in the past in the past few years, we've we've heard crazy stories from people who needed a wedding Jesse showed up, right? Didn't have money didn't have time the resources to find a wedding dress. And what did we have the one winning dress? That was in there sign their size. And I think last year brought her daughter who they were under resourced, and we're going to be able to find a progress. Right. I mean, this is just meeting needs all place, and we love that personal touch point at the very end. You think that you're done you're going home? But we want to make sure on your way home. You know, the we see that he's Assisi and that your love. Loved. I think one other thing is that with the tokens, and we talk about you know, how many items each person gets is also if to release yourself, though of worrying about you know, how many did each person get because really Jesus shows up and everyone gets what they need to end. So like, that's what I think has been really cool to see through just through these various swaps that we have put on is that to release ourselves from determining somebody's need. Know and just have an open arms, which I think is cool especially really kinda helps perpetuate like it propels us into the next season of swat. Okay. That was amazing. Let's start it. All right. I really incredible. I love Aaron that you've been able to even speak with other churches after we've done this walk. Lots of people are asking how do I this? And that's great. I get the vision. I love all the things that you do. But I think you've had some really great conversations with people in the past. And they've asked him really great questions you've been able to answer for everyone. I think he can help kinda share some of that knowledge for instance, if if we're under resourced and what we can what we can fabricate on our own or create or buys fixtures. Things too close. Like, how are some of the ways we've gotten creative with that? In the past note. That's a great question. I think that's something that that's been really fun to be able to talk to different Turcios that have wanted to put on it and to their own swap. And you know, it's it is it does require a lot of. Of resources whether that's time from people and actual fixtures and different things like hangers and all those things. And so what what I would say is that, you know. I mean, certainly we have built fixture. We definitely have fixtures that we have built before ourselves..

"She has now for going on for years, she is hopped in and really helped us get the grow from start to finish across the finish line and even racked up and ready to go for for the year heads, and we're so thankful for her. Thank you in right now, you've already heard a little bit from people experiencing the swap you've heard from Shelly casting vision of why we do the swap. But today, we wanna talk about like, how do you? Get there though. Like, there's this amazing vision. We know what we want to do. We know what the end goal. We want is to an extent. Right. But what have we learned in the process? How do we build this each year from start to finish which looks a lot maybe different than what people think? Right, right. Well, there's a lot that goes into the group. Swap. And of course, it starts with the vision. But then, you know, you just you need to make sure that you're able to receive all of these great clothes and excess. And so you need to have a good time frame where you're actually collecting close from people, and you need to make sure that people are understanding it's not just any close. But we want it to be clothing and accessories that people love and are still excited about and they are giving them to someone else to joy, a donation more. Right. Yes. Intentional gift. And exactly. That's exactly. Right. And I mean that just. That's the stage right there for having a mazing pieces for women to walk in the night of your swap. And to really be able to be blown away by the quality of what they're seeing their into feel so special so practically speaking for our group swop, which is in January of every year. We have this what we pack it all up, and then we basically start planning for the next one. We have a whole spring semester to get through of other grove gatherings. We have the summer and during all that time. We're kind of inventory the pieces that we that we have for setup we're making notes about what worked great the year before. And what we want to adjust. And then once we launch our grove gatherings in September. We start collecting right? So we start promoting in asking women to clean out their closets and pull those special pieces and start bringing them in September. And so talk about maybe Audrey talk about how long we set up that that donation period, and what that. Looks like from week to week for us. Yeah. So we this past year. We started collecting October's that gave us probably like three solid months of collecting, which was great. But even before then in the summertime, we spent a couple months building a team just to make all this happen. So the great thing about swap that you bring in different people to help serve in just put on the event with you..

So if someone has a need, they kind of know where to take them how to help them find things can navigate the the way we set up, our sizing in our colors, and everything awesome.

Hopefully that helps give a little bit more of the nuts and bolts side of what we're doing at the swap and kind of behind the scenes so now you're going to hear some incredible stories from the night and one of those stories happened before we even open the doors. So here's Shelly again with one of these grey stories from the grove swap. All right, Shelly. We haven't even started yet. But you already have a great story just came and found you had a good story. That's already happened. Amazing. And it happened earlier because we are parking here. Five fifteen is a little challenging what I love about. It is that it makes people who wanna come to church really wanna come to church wanna be like, you can't just come out of the parking lot. Isn't that easy park over there? Shows anyway, so the shuttle drivers are special people that we have great relationships with and a couple of them were here early about such shuttles from the parking deck down to our building. And when they came to the building they said, you know last year we were here. But unfortunately, we didn't get anything because we here toward the end and the clothing was gone for the most part, and we weren't able to actually get what we needed or wanted. And I was standing with Emily who's incredible? And she said well now your time off let's go shop right now. So we walked around a little bit with them as they picked out purses and shoes clothes in code, and they were holding stuff in their hands as they were walking out, and we got him bags and put them all in by. So that they would have him as we walked the door. And I was saying at the board walk him out one of them turned around and said to me, they just my picture. And I think that they was probably Emily, but they just took my picture. I feel like a star, and she had tears in her eyes. It's so simple. It's not proof on. And it's not hard. It's actually just re appropriating things that God has gifted us in our hands. And for that lady her night will never be the saints. Right. You know, and she will shuttle people so happily goes down to this building. So that they can get what they need that God saw her own long. And he knew that she would come first and get what she needed because of the way she serves people. So I just think it's cool to watch. God were and we haven't let people in yet and nothing is really truly quote unquote happening, but it's all happening in the way God works so beautiful. So you heard a little bit earlier about our stylist team and really throughout the night of the swap, I kind of relied on them to be my eyes and ears of what was happening and what was going down. So they would come up to me with these amazing women, and I would get share with them and hear their stories, and here's one of the first stories that I got to hear from the night..

They give a lot of helpful wisdom for those of you that might wanna plant a swap of your own in year sick. Eighty every year we are blown away by the generosity of our women. But also by the stories that come out of these nights. It is way more than just about close through this year.

No one is inside here except for all the people that are making it look beautiful. Yes. We have the most incredible door holders who show up for things that no one should really have to come to, you know, but they do and we have an incredible group here who are finishing the layout and production of almost twelve thousand pieces of clothing incredible. Basically, you know, our church I was laughing one day because I one hundred and thirty thousand square feet or something like that. And we fill this place with clothing incredible to think of every space. How all the spaces that are obviously destined for things like worship for kids things in worship that we have on and for other kind of programming that we do during that we but just to think about the fact that every one of those spaces now full of the most incredible pieces of clothing are intended for people that wouldn't have them otherwise. Yes. And what I love is in one of my very favorite things about the swap. And if you're hearing all the construction noise, it's just part of it is that people who don't have things get things, but people who actually just want to enjoy a moment with each other. Also, get things it's also it's all of us together. And. One of the greatest honors of our life is to be able to get things in people's hands that need them. Yes. That when we can do that in a respectful way for people and put them in an environment. That's a fun. We're about to in fact, we just cranked down the DJ.

Gosh, we feel honest. I mean, I'm sukey for myself, but I will speak for. Out of this thing. But I I feel so poured into by the goodness of God through you and Louis and in your whole team, and I've never experienced anything like what we've experienced with the Christmas grove, and so it's special. It's really get to. I think be in those moments where Jesus arrived on earth. So our hearts are already. So tender is you know, right with Quist Christmas. But then just to get to stand in the presence of God in that moment to tell him that he's so worthy of our worship that he's so worthy of our attention. When everything is pulling us away from that seems like Christmas season is the hardest time to actually pay attention to God. How in it's interesting because it's actually the moment that we should be paying the most attention it feels like right? So anyway, thanks for the investment. I think do amazing to watch. I wanna talk a little bit today just about life and ministry wanna talk about your family. I'm going to talk about things that people will just love knowing about you guys. So I'm a question asker by nature. So I thought I'd start with a few of mine, but I want it to be more of a conversation. So if you feel like you wanna bring up a subject that I haven't thought of then please feel free to do that. But I would love to start by just letting you guys tell us a little bit about your family. Tell us about the history of your family and just sort of your kids there some of his favorite people. And I think we always are can often as adults when they grow up. They're going to be amazing. But I think your kids are amazing. And unless you just talk a lot about that for second. Thank you. Well, it all started..

"This new year with a powerful talk from a dear friend of the growth Priscilla shirer Priscilla is a wife in a mother and a powerhouse teacher. She's also a New York Times bestselling author of dozens of books bible studies. This talk was recorded live at the grow from Priscilla gave us a recipe for effective ministry. Whether standing on a stage sitting in a classroom or raising kids, we hope you enjoyed this talk from Priscilla shirer. Tell you what a privilege all that. It is to be here in this incredible place on that Louis and silly probably nearly ten years ago. Now, we were speaking together, a Louis niente, Sydney, Australia, and I got to meet this couple and hear about what it was the Lord was doing in their lives, then what it was stirring in their hearts that on just being able to see come to fruition now. And our live all of our lives have been touched and changed and blessed because of this incredible couple is that right? I'm so grateful on though grateful. And I'm grateful that you all are in a setting like this not just tonight. But that you get to do this every month that you get to be with each other. I'm a little off task right now. They're with me for a second. I was thinking when I was sitting there about how meetings like this gatherings. Like, this can change your life that you really are different because of the people that you're rubbing shoulders with because the people you're hanging out with this commercial. It's Honey nut Cheerios commercial. I'm so off task. So do not Cheerios commercial the ladies been working in the factory all day long, packaging materials. That's what she does. She's got this little net thing on her hair because she works food all day. So she's just doing the commercials. She's talking about how she works in the factory all day long. And then afterwards just like all of us who who work during the day afterwards, you've got to run errands. And so she leaves the factory she said, and she goes to run her Aaron she might be in the grocery store going up and down the aisles getting her bread and her eggs and stuff. She needs for her regular life. And she said sometimes I'll be standing in one of the aisles getting my groceries. They don't see people around me going. What does it smell like fresh bread is baking on this aisle? Why does it smell fresh cookies or something on this island? She says she can see people around her going. And so sometimes she says she just lets it pass. But sometimes she'll over and say, oh, it's me. It's just me. I've been working around. Honey nut Cheerios all day long. And I thought to myself how that's what happens when we come to places like the grove is that all of a sudden, you know, you just in your regular life. You're just on your job or you're hanging out with your friends or you're out on a date or you're doing whatever it is that you do in your life. And all of a sudden somebody goes. Why are you so different and unique, and why are you filled with so much value and have so much Integra? Why are you so different than this environment that I'm standing in right now? And it's because whatever it is that you're hanging around leaves its imprint on you, it leaves residue on you. And I'm here to say that that this the grove is leaving a scent on your life. That's going to follow you everywhere, you go it's going to change, and it's gonna make you stand out from the crowd around you as the daughter that got his called you to be a men. I'm excited about God's word. I just have a few thoughts. I wanna share with you tonight that I hope will be a blessing to you..

"Hey guys at Shelly gig. Leo, you're listening to the grove podcast. Thank you so much for traveling along with us on this journey. It's been incredible. I think the first few podcasts have been such a huge success. It's been amazing to watch it land in people's lives bringing life to people and hope and encouragement we've really been blown away. Honestly, some of the feedback is some of the best that we've ever gotten on anything we've ever done. And I think all of our crew is so encouraged that the words of truth that the anchors that we've put our lives down into or affecting your lives in the same way says thank you so much for tracking along we have some incredible things coming up on the grove podcast in the next year. And we can't wait to do it with you. So thanks for being a part of it. Just let you guys know about a couple of things that are coming up. We know many of the women who listen to the grove podcast are actually in Atlanta. So if you are we wanted to let you know about the grove swap, the grove swap is one of the most favorite things that we do around. Here. And the reason is is because we have a moment where we realized that what is ours is actually also someone else's, and we have become open-handed people not just with our lives. But with our stuff we want our stuff to be used bring great honor to other people at the grove swap. What we do is we bring some of our most treasured items, whether it's clothing, purses, shoes accessories, we bring those in what we do is organize them in the most beautiful format. It really looks like the nicest store ever been in. We create an environment where we can then invite the neighborhood to come into receive some of those items as new items to them that brand new hope in their lives. So if you're in Atlanta, and you wanna be a part of the grove spot just know the cats coming up on January twenty fifth so I'd like to introduce you to our last episode of the year is kind of crazy to me because we got a late start this year. But it's been incredible to watch the grove podcast take root the last episode. I'm kind of biased, but I think it's one of the very best. And I'm excited that you guys. Get to hear it today. Our very own pastor and really cute husband Luik igloo is on the podcast today. Louis actually opened the grove this past year in September for us in when he came he brought an incredible word from proverbs thirty one, you know, all of us have looked over proverbs thirty one a lot in life. And obviously we've gleaned a lot of insight over the years about what it means to grow up and be a beautiful woman in the kingdom of God. But what Louis brought to us was so profound when he talks about what it looks like to look at Jesus in the midst of storm and to see him come through in your life. It was just incredible. So not just in the room was in a moment that I believe that. It's a moment for us today. So I want you guys to welcome one of my favorite preachers of all times. Luik?.

"And better as the years go on and that God, faithfully builds his kingdom in our lives and through our lives for all of our days. And I don't believe that it's possible that we can do that without loving the moment we're in. So some of it is that some of you are in your fifties. And you're looking back at me going. I don't love where I am right now. I think you have to find the good in where you are right now. So that God can continue to bring the good to your life and some of us just don't plain flat. Don't appreciate where we are. And I'm not saying it's not harder difficult or that. You don't have a circumstance in your life. That's overwhelming. But I do believe that you have to learn to look for what God is doing in your life at this very moment. So that you can see the threat of God from past in your life, currently in your life and the future of what he's going to do with your life. And I think it just gets better and better and better to the Burien. That's what I'm hoping for. Amen in Jesus name. Because I think that's carful in Jesus name. Well, what I love about these grove nights is really you look across the room or now I mean across the world, and this is really just an invitation for women to step fully in. It's a way of saying to women in the church, you're here, and you're seeing and we want you here. So why do you think this invitation to women matter so much in the church today? Well, honestly, I think when we were planting the grove we had just planted the church. So the church is nine years old or something like that. We have a rough start. So nobody knows exactly hold. We are. Some of you were around for that. It was weird. Anyway. What was to in our lives at that point that I I was I'm not your typical women's pastor person. Right. Anyone? Yeah. Okay. Yeah. Amen. I don't know who that is. But it's definitely not me. And so I was I was looking at the church at large we have opportunity just because of our life to travel all over the world. And to see the big C church in it's one of the most beautiful things you'll ever behold is to travel to somewhere, like South Africa, or to Japan and see the vibrant church of God that he said he would build that he space building alive in. It's crazy and humbling and beautiful. And so we have that opportunity. But as I looked at women in the church what I saw was a generation of people who didn't feel like they belonged in the church in who actually had to go outside of the church to find significant places to contribute in their life in it broke, my heart because God designed us as a body of people in he designed to every one of us to have a place in that body in without your contribution. Our body does not work right in. So I said to God God if you'll help me, and if you'll lead me and if you'll. Teach me what I need to know to actually be decent at leading your women. I will try to do it faithfully in feel like God has just opened the door. I mean, look around at what God is doing among women in the church. It's unbelievable. What's happening? It's. The kingdom of God is being built in our lives. And now through our lives in the church, and I think there's no greater honor than us to be called to that. And then to faithfully serve where he's called us. And so that's part of the birthing a thing of this entire thing. Well, we have started such a great conversation that I hate to take a break. And when we come back, there's so much more that I wanna ask you about. But we are just going to take a quick minute. And we'll be right back..

"Designed to encourage women to be rooted in the unfailing word of God to flourish where they're planted to walk in freedom with Jesus and as a grove we offer our lives as shade to the people in our paths. In today's episode. You're gonna hear from Shelly Giglio who is she. Who is the chief strategist and director of label operations in artist management for six steps records. And who since the very beginning in twenty thirteen has been the lead visionary for the grove. Shelly is also married to pass through Louie Giglio interviewing. Interviewing Shelly is writer speaker in a member of our grove prayer team. Would you welcome Hannah Brin shirt and selling? Hello ladies of the grove. And to everyone who is listening and tuning into our podcast for the first time, some mazing, it's such a crazy feeling. It's just crazy even say that these people are crazy. I think that's the key to it. All. Crazy. I love you. Shelly. What are your feelings about tonight? Well, it's a special thing for us. I was trying to talk we were talking a little bit and prayer before this. We have a few women who pray together like about one hundred and fifty maybe before anything happens in here. And honestly, it's one of the most favorite things we do in part part of the grove is just an overflow of what happens in a small space behind the stage because we really ask God to show up with huge power and to do things that no people on stages could ever do. And so tonight is like this wonder moment where we have all these very special things that happen in this room together. And some of us have been treasuring and enjoying these things for for years Nell together, and it's been amazing to watch. God grew our lives into put layer upon layer of strength into us. That we can rise up and be the women that got intended us to be in. It's incredible. But also now to think that the whole world could have access to this through a little podcast that posts, basically, they will bunch of media outlets and everyone in the world canal. Listen and have their life built in the same way that we get to experience month to month. I just can't believe how good got us. So that's basically what I feel which isn't maisy. Feel amazing. Often for that. Awesome. Also, I think that what a lot of us in this room are probably thinking and from knowing you and Louis, and the church is a whole you don't move forward until God has given you that go that it's time to start this thing. And so bring us into this moment. Like why now start a podcast? I don't honestly know the answer to that fully. But I will tell you what feel which is a feeling when we started the grove. We felt very committed to building it. And I feel like sometimes in our lives were more anxious to export than we are to actually build. In. I didn't want to be that person. I wanted God to build my life to put the word of God. So deep in my heart and in my love for him. So rich that that I would be committed to him and walk with him. No matter what. And I feel like when we started. We we all longed for that. But we longed for it in a way that was kind of just not acceptable all people in I feel like God, let that be a treasure for us those days in feel like now, there's just permission from God to say, you know, what I have a world of people who really need to know what's happening here. Not from the standpoint of it's a great event. And you guys love to come which I love that. You do. It's amazing. But I think more from the steam point of there is a possibility that God can build structure your life in such a way that you can withstand every storm that you can walk through every pitfall. All that every hardship..
