About Us

Joel and Tina met a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

Not really, we met in seminary in the late 90's in Austin, TX. But it feels like a long time ago in a galaxy far away sometimes. After graduating from Austin Presbyterian Seminary, we moved North. It was meant to be in the middle of our birth families as we are a bi-coastal family. Joel hails from Seattle, WA and Tina is from a rural area outside of Charleston, SC.

Joel has worked in full-time ministry to local churches since graduating and Tina has been a full-time homemaker. We have gone through many struggles and celebrations together through the years and the one thing that has been constant is the presence of God in our lives. We have waxed and waned in our early years but in our early thirties became committed to developing our spiritual lives on a daily basis. In the midst of that first revival, we began our podcast "What's That About? with Joel and Tina." It was mainly listened to by our parents and took a hiatus when Joel transitioned to a new church in 2009. In the summer of 2018, we decided it was time for that podcast to come back to life.

Our hope is that our experiences and views on scripture and life will be able to reach beyond our front door and into the lives of those that need to hear some good news.

When we aren't working on the podcast or crafting blog posts, we enjoy spending time together as a family with our daughter and managerie of pets. You can find us settled in during winter weekends watching something on Netflix or out in the yard during the summer cultivating our garden. If you ever want to drop by and join us, just give us a text and let us know you're coming!

Tina's Top Five Bible Translations

There are so many options out there in regards to Bibles. It can be hard to know which one is the right one for you. We can end up with a ton of Bibles and still not read them. I'm going to go highlight five different versions and what I like about each of them. And I'll share a John 3:16 from each of them so you can get a feel for what makes them different. 1. The New Living Translation (NLT). I've gone through lots of different versions that are my favorites over the years, this one is my current. It's easy to read, relatively easy to understand. But the best part is that it has so many different options. Tyndale Publishers is committed to making scripture accessible to everyone in that they publish the Life Application Study Bible, various different children's Bibles, and my favorite The One Year Bible. For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. 2
