Portuguese Practice & the Purpose of the Disciplines

Episode 60 | Faith in Practice | Released Monday January 25, 2021 | Special guest: Kelly Minter

For the final episode of our Faith in Practice series, join us for a conversation among friends with author, speaker, and songwriter Kelly Minter. This week, Raechel, Amanda, and Kelly engage in an honest and vulnerable conversation about their difficult, yet freeing personal experiences with the disciplines of solitude, silence, simplicity, chastity, and remembrance. Connecting the practice of these disciplines to everything from the rhythms of Peloton workouts to Portuguese lessons, they help us tackle the often unasked yet wrestled with question, Can freedom and discipline co-exist?
