Music is one of the defining cultures of the Clarkson family. A handful of talented musicians have permeated all the seasons of our family history, as we listened together, sang along in the car, filled our walls with the melodies that tied the strings of our hearts together. Our friend, Andrew Peterson, is one such singer songwriter and close to all of our hearts. I am so happy to have him as a guest on my podcast today.
The Petersons are kindred spirits and fellow "creatives" in so many areas. They love to feast, talk, read, sing, and create a rich life with a warm welcome to all who would join their community. I am happy to introduce some of you to Andrew's story, his music and his books, though I am sure many of you have followed him for years as we have. I know this podcast will encourage you.
Clay is a long time supporter of all things Andrew and we have both loved attending Hutchmoot, a gathering of artists, musicians and creatives for many years. Every year we draw closer to the friends we have found in this community.
You will find lots of fun Links from today's podcast!
Andrew shares a love of stories with our family and has written a series of page-turners you will love.
Rich Mullins had a big impact on Andrew as well as all of our family. Nathan and I particularly liked An Arrow Pointing to Heaven about Rich's life.
Sam is a dear friend and we hope to have him on the podcast soon--also a part of this community. Many already love his book, The Green Ember (Joel, our son, was the reader for the book!)
All of our friends in the Rabbit Room Community value feasting, talking around the table and celebrating life together. I loved the tradition Andrew shared about his own family table. So fun.
Be sure to get your copy of The Lifegiving HOme for our 6-week podcast series about Mentoring That Brings Life to your Table. You can find the first episode here.
Thanks for all the wonderful letters about my new book! Love hearing from you.
