This is a great podcast if you want to become a more relevant Christian. However, if you're looking to actually follow Christ and grow closer to God through scripture, this podcast falls very short.

Just Wow...

I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have found this podcast. There are so many moments during the episodes where I’m just saying “YES!” and “Right?!” and “Whoa...” and “Gah, thank you so much for talking about this!” Christa and Luke are so open and authentic. This podcast will absolutely challenge you, encourage you, and also sometimes just straight up blow your mind. Highly recommend!!!!

We've taken you outside your religious world, now we're going to let you into our personal world. 

In this episode we get as real time as we ever have.

What comes of this raw, vulnerable conversation is a couple choosing to find healing, transformation and awakening through infidelity, heartache, ownership, dedication and trusting that there is always light to be found within darkness.

We're back!

The last time you heard from us we dove into our lives while picking up the pieces after the death of our daughter Goldie. 

We are so thankful to the 300,000 of you that became a part of our story and community as we uncovered our hearts and walked you through our journey of integrating Goldie's death. What an honor and pleasure it has been to be a part of your journey's as you have been a part of ours. 

After a 2 year hiatus, a new baby and the deconstruction of our bad christian theology. 

In this episode we let you in on where we've been and start to unpack the long road of hurts and healing we have been walking. 

From deep-diving our spiritual belief systems, reorienting the dynamics of our marriage, to recovering a love we could never imagine...we talk about it all. 

Tears, laughter, tension and love. We are glad to be back with the Head To Heart Podcast!
