A year ago, five writers from across the U.S. got together on a whim with the crazy idea of starting an unscripted podcast on life and faith. It has been an exciting, challenging, beautiful year, allowing us to learn more about ourselves, each other, and so many people around the country journeying in faith in similar ways.
While co-hosts Lori Harris and Kristi James are stepping away from their co-hosting duties (sniff, sniff) we are eager to see where God is leading them in their role in the Upside Down Kingdom. While they may be replacing their mics with their earbuds, they're eager to cheer on co-hosts Lindsy Wallace, Kayla Craig, and Shannon Evans as well.
Here's a bit from Lori in her own words: Because of Thad's recent diagnosis and the impending family and ministry changes we anticipate coming in the next few months, I'm stepping away from the podcast in order to have more space to reconnect with my family, hear from God and listen to my soul.
Here's a bit from Kristi in her own words: Saying yes to something always means saying no to something else. While I'm incredibly thankful to have been able to say yes to Upside Down Podcast for the last year or so, my time has come to an end as well. I've loved being a host of this show, and I look forward to continuing as a student. God has used and will continue to use the energy and courage of my co-hosts and the community surrounding this podcast to push me closer to the cross and I'm grateful. I'll be praying for continued courage and clarity for these women, and especially that they, too, will take advantage of opportunities to mention Justin Timberlake as often as possible in my absence.
While we're not an interview-centered podcast, we are eager to bring new voices to the table to join us in unscripted conversations on life and faith. So, if you have someone who might be a good co-host for an episode, send them our way!
We have a lot of meaty topics we're eager to jump into in the new year, and you can expect fresh episodes twice a month. (Go subscribe on iTunes!)
