Guests: Abby Dorman, Lee Hollman and Alaina Joy Porter

[24:06] - 

A recent survey uncovered the top 10 cities in the U.S. by money spent on a first date. Miami topped the list with a whopping $248 price tag for a first date, and Denver rounded out the list at $161. Does more money spent equal a better date? What’s generous, and what’s trying too hard? For that matter, what are some general first date best practices to keep in mind? Our panel weighs in.

Radical Singleness

Being Single|Culture
Guests: Jill Monaco

[19:57] - 

Jill Monaco is the founder of Single Matters, a ministry for the growing population of single adults over 30. Jill’s goal is to help single adults grow in their relationship with Christ while tackling healthy life and relational goals. She practices what she preaches. Jill is no stranger to stepping out in faith, having done several months-long cross-country road trips with no real agenda beyond seeing what God would have her do along the way. She also recently packed up her life and moved to Chicago for her next step in ministry. Here’s your chance to embrace a radical trust in Christ by witnessing Jill Monaco’s example.
