Freshly Brewed, Episode 72: Fireside Chats


As we are a few days into the 50-day Easter celebration we thought it would be great to talk about the necessity of celebrating and what it can show us about how to live a well-balanced life! Surrounded by a society focused on careers and work, we can sometimes forget how important it is to rest and play well too! Follow the link below for some thoughts from Sara, Anna, Molly, and Annie on how to prioritize what is important and maintain a healthy balance in life!

Freshly Brewed, Episode 26: FourFiveSeconds from JOY

Happy game day basketball fans! We are so excited to release this podcast! In fact, there couldn’t be a more timely occasion for Lindsay to interview the biggest Badger fan in the Midwest, Mykenzie Lemberger, about the difference between happiness and joy as some of our March Madness brackets make it or break it! As a Camp Gray alumna, former LBH Core Team member, current educator and caretaker of youth, and sports enthusiast, Mykenzie has some beautiful perspective on how to distinguish between the pleasure of happiness and the peace found with true joy. Listen here to be inspired by a woman filled with joy rooted in the promise of eternal life!
