Episode 42 Melinda Schmidt & Michelle Van Loon
When good friends join you around the table, good conversation usually happens. That was the case when Melinda Schmidt, Michelle Van Loon, and I sat around my kitchen table to talk. We talked about our past as well as our present and a significant amount of laughter found its way into our conversation as well.
Something all three of us value, and believe is important, is the life of the mind. We don’t think Jesus was kidding when he said in Mark 12:30, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” Often we grab onto loving God with our heart, soul and strength, but gloss over loving him with our mind. Probably because we’re not exactly sure what that looks like. We discuss that on the podcast, especially as it relates to women.
Since all three of us are big conversationalists, it’s no surprise that we talked about the art of conversation and how important it is to remain curious throughout our lives, and how that serves us well in conversation. We also get into the nuts and bolts of starting a Conversation Group. We hope some of you will take up the challenge and then tell us about it.
