Lifeguards are scanning pools and blowing whistles during this final stretch of summer. Pencils are being sharpened and folders are getting tucked into school backpacks. Projects are both winding down and gearing up. The shifting of seasons is upon us. 

This time of the year is extra busy, extra chaotic, and well—just extra. That’s why The Messy Table Podcast is intentionally taking this week “off,” to make room for catching up, breathing deep, and binge-listening to past conversations you might’ve missed. Now is the time to catch up! 

Our fall lineup (rolling out August 21st!) is loaded with amazing women + life-giving encouragement. But it would be a shame to put the cart before the horse and pass up on all kinds of goodness, now wouldn’t it?

Happy listening, y’all!

Welcome to The Messy Table! An ordinary space for real women, imperfect stories, and the God who’s at work in our mess. Today’s guest for Episode 36 is the brave and beautiful Anita Wyatt—wife to one, mom of 6, lover of the outdoors, and a woman who’s not afraid to join God in the greatest mission on earth.

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn’t earn it, and I don’t deserve it, still, You give Yourself away
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God

Reckless Love by Cory Asbury // Bethel Music

Anita and her husband Wayne have not only adopted a precious boy from Ukraine with special needs, but they’ve also pursued his biological mother—who they discovered was living in a pig barn in exchange for a meal a day and a roof over her head. “Not on their watch,” they decided. Join us as we uncover this unconventional story of God’s relentless love!

What would it take to actually renew your mind? What kind of mind shift has the power to yield massive results—even restore a marriage? If you’re facing the impossible or ready to throw in the towel, my friend Mary Kuti has BEEN THERE.

Mary is wife to her worship-pastor husband, Chris, and mama to two handsome boys + one brand spankin’ new baby girl who just made her grand debut last week. Together, Chris and Mary lead one of our Life.Church locations in powerful worship every single week. But, as usual, there’s a story behind the glory.

In this episode, Mary is chatting with Cindy Beall and I about something incredibly messy that happened early on in their marriage, when two people running in opposite directions eventually led to unfaithfulness. BUT GOD. By His grace, God didn’t allow their story to end there. Today, Mary is offering gobs of learned wisdom, timeless tips, and buckets of hope for allowing God to renew ALL THE THINGS. Will you join us?!
