Episode 156 | Advent 2022 | Released November 28, 2022 | Special guest: Max Lucado

Advent 2022 is here! Join us this week as Raechel and Amanda kick off the season with special guest, Max Lucado. While reading Scripture and walking through the first few verses of the beloved Christmas hymn “Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus,” Raechel, Amanda, and Max celebrate with one another that the joy of our longing hearts is being fulfilled in Christ. He has come, and He will come again. This is the good news we celebrate each day in this cherished season.
