Just for fun, to celebrate the launch of Love-Centered Parenting, this week on the podcast, we turn the tables and Jesse hosts the show! He interviews me about why I wrote another book when I never thought I would, a real behind-the-scenes look at how I wrote this book, what the editorial process is like for writing a book, plus much more!

He asks me some of his own questions + questions you all submitted, including:

  • Did I plan to write another book? (Spoiler alert: the answer is no!)
  • How was the writing process of this book compared to my other books?
  • What was the most difficult part of writing Love-Centered Parenting?
  • What are the best and worst aspects of writing a book?
  • How do you find inspiration for what to write about?
  • Could a non-Christian benefit from Love-Centered Parenting?
  • How do you get started writing a book?
  • And more!
