Episode 9: Bed Bugs, Royals, Martians, and Good Gifts

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

After their road trip up to interview the certified smart guy, Dr. Dan, the Fitzies rolled on home and set up shop again on the front porch. This week, we talk about why making your bed is a mortal sin. Jessica proves her gifting by recalling the prophecy she made about the KC Royals, which led to a conversation about the Royals’ can-do spirit, The Martian, Matt Damon, and the “glory story.” Joel closes out our time together with a devotional about God’s shocking generosity in light of our failures. Thankfully, there were no trucks backing up.
