#12 A Mission of Love to the Strip Clubs of Austin- Interview with Brenda Hughes of First Love

Brenda Hughes is not your typical “church lady,” with an edgy undercut and sleeves of tattoos, but this is what the employees and performers of Austin-area strip clubs have endearingly named her. Multiple times a year, Brenda and her small team, dive into the world of exotic dancing to bring a message of love. She never overtly talks about Jesus unless prompted. She is there simply to show that no one is too far into darkness to be reached with love and light. This episode is a very candid conversation that contains some mild swearing and we are talking about strip clubs sooo…. keep that in mind if you listen with your kiddos around.

Thank you for listening and please take a couple of minutes to leave a review if you haven’t yet!

We appreciate your support in giving these amazing people a platform to share their stories.

#08 Know Your Story- Interview with Rev. Sarah Heath


The Reverend Sarah Heath knows the tension of feeling as if she’s “too much but never enough.” She rattles expectations of what a typical lead pastor should look like and challenges the norms of what it means to be a Christian. When she was called to the ministry, it wasn’t exactly what she had in mind. However, through the various struggles that come with being a woman in a church leadership position, God has proven faithful. Sarah’s story of courage and vulnerability reminds us that we need to have both in order to fully own our story. Her upcoming book, “What’s Your Story? Seeing Your Life Through God’s Eyes,” which is to be released April 2017 will help readers discover their story through art, journaling, and more. We are so honored to have had this amazing conversation with Rev. Sarah, you don’t want to miss this one!
