S3E16 Matthew Paul Turner and the Joy of Writing

Matthew Paul Turner joins us today to talk about encouraging friendships, Christmas, and the joys of writing for children. He shares his journey to writing kids’ books, has a remarkable memory when it comes to the first time he and Shawn met, and has some revealing words regarding one of Shawn’s high school crushes (ahem, Amy Grant). Maile, staying on topic, gushes about Matthew’s latest book, All the Colors of Christmas.
