We love good stories—and great stories are even better when they’re true. Real stories, true stories don’t just pass on facts, they inspire us. Recently, Dave and I sat down with our friend Catherine Parks to talk about how biographies help us see God at work, movies, and reading well. Listen in as we discuss:
- People that surprised Catherine as she worked on Empowered and Strong
- How to fight against bias when writing biographies
- What biographies can teach kids
- How Catherine’s family has embraced the Jack Reacher Sucker Punch of the Week
- Why Dave just needs to own being #40Dave
- Just how old is Catherine’s husband, anyway?
