Please consider making a donation to help the Andrew Jones family.

As you may remember, we talked with Andrew in episode 2.5.

And the entire Jones family has been an inspiration to many as they’ve worked diligently to bring heaven to earth to people around the world.

Andrew’s wife, Debra (or Mum Jones to many) passed away earlier this week and as the latest update we’ve heard, Andrew is still recovering from illness in the hospital.

From Facebook:

It is with great sadness and sorrow that I announce the passing of our beloved sister and fellow warrior Debra Jones. She died June 15th of kidney failure in Gambi Hospital in Bahar Dar, Ethiopia. She was on a journey loving people in ways that always stretched our capacity and blew our imagination.

The funds gathered will be a love offering to help them with travel costs, funeral accommodations, food, and time together.

Could a meat loving, Domestic Divo give up eating meat for the full 40 days of Lent?

Despite not traditionally observing Lent, Brandon Mouser took the challenge of friends and decided to observe Lent this year as a vegetarian. And what he learned along the way may surprise you – and may challenge you as well.

Cameron Sinclair :: 7.2


This week we talk with history professor Cameron Sinclair about why history matters and how we can break down some of the old stereotypes through story.

Cameron is a professor at Brookhaven College in Dallas and co-hosts the History Banter podcast with Brad Folsom.

He’s also a graduate student working on a PhD in History at the University of North Texas. Generally, he’s most interested in the histories of the United States and Mexico during the 19th century but specifically Texas after the Civil War.

Angus Mathie :: 7.1


It’s time to kick off a new year and a new season of the something beautiful podcast!

It feels really good to finally type that.

2013 was a year of fun, ups, downs, lefts and rights and if the first three weeks are any indication, 2014 will be as well.

This week’s podcast features Angus Mathie, father to Thomas Mathie who has been a part of the podcast from day one.

Angus is a retired telecommunications worker who has a tremendous passion both for his faith and his family.

He and his wife Elizabeth have been married for almost 42 years and he lives in Glasgow, near Thomas and his family.

During this podcast, we talk about his journey and a tragedy he experienced early on in his marriage that could have ripped their marriage a part but ultimately made them stronger for it.

As mentioned during the podcast, we plan to release a podcast twice a month this year. The podcasts will run from 10-20 minutes to hopefully give you plenty of time to listen to each episode either on your commute, walking the dog or running errands with your family. In addition, we’ll share the extended interviews with our guests for many of the episodes.

We hope you’ll continue to join us on this journey as we hope to truly share stories worth talking about.
