Ep 73 - TobyMac: Loss, Rediscovering God's Goodness & Sheryl Crow
Paula jumps back into a brand new season of "Faith & Calling" with a powerful conversation from a raw and rugged place where the unrelenting pain of loss intersects with the unending goodness of God. Her guest this week, TobyMac - the seven-time GRAMMY winner, contemporary Christian singer, rapper, songwriter and former DC Talk member, knows these crossroads of heartache intimately. He's spent the last several years privately grieving the tragic loss of his 21-year-old son, Truett, in 2019. 

In this episode TobyMac opens up about the deep anguish that's changed him forever and the deeper experience of God's goodness that's been keeping him afloat. Hear how he poured this powerful testimony into his new album, "Life After Death", which includes major collaborations with the likes of Sheryl Crow - a surprising friendship born, as he tells Paula, from outside the music industry. TobyMac and Paula also discuss what he's clinging to as time marches on, his advice for other parents struggling with the loss of a child and his hope-filled belief on why we all go through the painful places at one time or another in this life.

Talk less & listen more Paula!

I love Paula- LOVE her! However, I'm consistently disappointed when she talks about herself, her business, her past, her family... most of a show. For instance, I was really excited about the Dan Harris episode, but Paula talked the entire time. I know what she has going on. I'm more interested, during this episode, to hear what DAN has going on. It's a trend I'm seeing for most of her interviews. Please let your guests do 95% of the talking, Paula.

Lovin it

I found Paula's podcast through my You Version Bible app. I just had this connection with her and decided to check out her podcast. I have been so encouraged and inspired by all her guests. Way to go Paula! I liked it so much that I went back to the very beginning and I'm bing listening all of them to bring myself up to date!
