Sometimes truth shows up where you least expect it.

We could all use a minute – a minute to put up our feet, a minute to watch another episode or read another chapter, a minute to breathe. And that’s okay. Taking time to rest and enjoy yourself isn’t something to feel guilty about. And the truth is that show or that book might just have something holy to teach us.

I’m Mary, and I’m so glad you’re here. Welcome to a guilt-free corner of the internet where you can kick off your shoes, get comfy, and have a little fun. We’re going to talk about our favorite TV shows and movies, our book boyfriends and secret playlists, and anything else that reminds us about who we are, what’s most important, and even God.

Connecting the dots between everyday life and the Word of God makes my heart beat fast as I am convicted or comforted, encouraged or inspired – and I love nothing more than sharing those connections with friends like you. Plus, sometimes I just love a good list or recipe or movie review. If any of that sounds like your cup of tea (or coffee), stick around. We’re going to have fun!

The Couch Podcast :: A Love Letter to Pushing Daisies (S2E2)

Today’s episode is, essentially, a love letter to Pushing Daisies. Because when it comes to short-lived shows, Pushing Daisies is unique in the dramatic responses it creates in fans. One mention of this show and fans will sigh loudly, cartoon hearts practically popping out of their eyes before they begin gushing about how dreamy and quirky and just plain wonderful it was.

The Couch Podcast :: All About Hamilton (S1E22)

After a quick road trip to Chicago to see Hamilton on stage, I couldn’t quit gushing and analyzing and, let’s be honest, crying just a little bit about the show. So I got my friend Amy Clark (who also has been known to gush and analyze and cry about this thing) to talk about all the things on this week’s episode.

It's a lifestyle. It's a devotional!

Gilmore Girls was a TV show known (and loved) for its fast-talking, pop culture-referencing, coffee-chugging characters, but it was also a show devoted to love of family and community. These themes – as well as topics like forgiveness, kindness, and gratitude – partner well with lessons from the Bible.

Christians who loved this show will be encouraged and inspired to follow this “season” of daily devotions, reminiscing about their favorite Gilmore Girls scenes and perhaps seeing them from a whole new perspective.

When life makes you say, “Oy with the poodles already!” grab your mug of coffee and settle in for a conversation that will warm your heart and feed your soul.
