Since he’s been back, Drew has been finding it hard to explain this enormously enlightening experience. So he’s decided to call up some of the pilgrims he met with along The Way (from Germany, Israel, Switzerland, Ireland & Spain) in order to help him figure out WHAT THE HECK JUST HAPPENED!

Esther Fleece — Author of No More Faking Fine: Ending the PretendingFrom a young age, Esther Fleece learned to suck it up and hold it together while the world around her was falling apart. A victim of childhood trauma and abuse, she ignored her hurting heart and channeled her energies to extreme hustle, performance and achievement. In her new book No More Faking Fine: Ending the Pretending, Esther shares how the practice of lament—a word rarely discussed—changed her life and sets readers on an encouraging path toward healing. “Lament is expressing honest emotions to God when life is not going as planned,” writes Fleece. “Whether we’re hurt, frustrated, confused, betrayed, overwhelmed, sad or disappointed, lament is the language that God has given us to talk to Him right in the middle of life’s messes…it is a prayer to which God always responds.” As a 10-year-old on the witness stand in a courtroom filled with family on opposing sides, Fleece quickly learned how to silence her cries. Her family was torn apart and in the years that followed she continued to shut down any painful emotions that haunted her on her fast track to success. A vice president at a consulting firm by the age of 25, Esther earned national recognition as one of CNN’s “5 Women in Religion to Watch” and one of Christianity Today’s “Top 50 Women Shaping the Church and Culture.” But Esther silenced her pain through personal success, and over time found that keeping her laments inside left her relationships superficial, including her relationship with God. In No More Faking Fine, Esther Fleece vulnerably shares her journey and gives readers permission to lament—to give voice to the hurt, frustration and disappointment they’ve kept inside and silenced for too long. “God meets us where we are at, and not where we pretend to be” she says. Esther has launched a nationwide campaign called “Ending the Pretending,” to encourage others to share their own No More Faking Fine stories.

Tim & Drew Catch Up!Well folks, it's been a while since Drew and 'Tim The Tool' have assaulted the airwaves with their unique brand of - actually we're not even sure what to call it! But the boys are back and filling us in on what's been going on over the past 6 months. Drew just returned from a 1000 km walk on the Camino de Santiago - The Way of St. James in Spain & France where he spent three months in a vow of silence. Tim insisted on telling Drew about his life as well.
USELESS TV TRIVIADrew and Tim The Tool missed each other so much that the first thing they want to do after five months off from doing the show, is goof around. They’ll play the soundtrack from an old television show and if you're the first caller to guess which TV show it's from - YOU WIN ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! *The best part is that Drew gets to hear from you, his listeners. So call in with your answers and say “Welcome Back” to Drew. (He's kinda needy that way!)
