Hungry for Home with Ruth McKeaney {Podcast #705}


That word can elicit a range of different emotions.

For some, the idea of home brings about feelings of family traditions, loved ones, or the place they always want to come back to. For others, the thought of home simply hurts, with disappointments, heartbreaks, and unattainable expectations.

There is something in all of us that longs for that sense of comfort and stability . . . that is the hope for home.

I have uncovered that hope again, thanks to the inspiration of a long-known of, but new to me friend, Ruth Mckeaney, who is also the author of Hungry for Home, a book that brings to life the sacredness of connections, the power of traditions, and the importance of family culture.

If you are searching for home with a longing to recenter yourself and your family culture, then this episode is for you.

Joshua 24:14-18 ESV “Now therefore fear the Lord and serve him in sincerity and in faithfulness. Put away the gods that your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
