My guest for The Happy Hour # 224 is Amy Wolff. Amy is a TEDx Speaker Coach and Executive Coach for a consulting company she co-owns with her father in Portland, OR. She accidentally started a global movement in 2017 through simple yard signs. But what currently thrills Amy the most is engaging in difficult conversations with unlikely friends and leading teams to Rwanda to experience the global family of God.

Amy and I start off talking about jealousy and how this show almost didn’t even happen. Amy gives us some great tips about speaking, whether that’s at Sunday School, at the PTA, or in front of a large crowd. We then talk about grief and the loss of her brother Jeremy. Amy talks about how it has influenced her life, and the peace and wrestling with God she has experienced.

In the second half of the show, Amy tells us how she and her family decided to take action using yard signs when they learned of the suicide rate in their area. What began with driving around asking neighbors if they could place a sign in their yard, has turned into a global movement. We also learn about an unexpected friendship with a witch (yes friends, a witch) that has provided the opportunity to have difficult conversations publicly, but done so in love. And lastly – because we discussed  all the things on this show! – we talk about sin, looking at our own sin, and how it influences how we love people.
