Sign up for the #GreaterThanGold challenge to give ethical, meaningful gifts this year!
“These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.”
Sometimes at the end of the day, I just need to curl up with some Food Network. But is zoning out like that okay, or am I supposed to be, like, reading the Bible and listening to Hillsong? That’s what today’s guest, Jessamyn Anderson, has come on the show to discuss. Jessamyn works in communications for Love Good Culture, a gift service focused on building a better culture through media. She’s also a singer and jewelry designer with a love for art, the BBC, and historical fiction. Jessamyn and I chat about how our media influences our culture and whether or not there’s even such a thing as “good” or “bad” media. Enjoy!
