I came across Seth’s book Coming Clean last fall, and I couldn’t put it down. Coming Clean is the story of Seth’s first ninety days of sobriety, after a year and a half of trying to drown his pain at the bottom of a bottle of gin. Seth’s words are powerful, elegant, raw, and hopeful. I loved our conversation, and I know you will, too. Seth is a lawyer in Arkansas, the husband of Amber (an amazing author herself), and the father of four boys.
You can follow Seth’s writing on his website, as well as following him on Facebook and Twitter. And you can order Coming Clean here. If you are struggling with any addiction, or love someone who does, I can’t recommend this book highly enough. It’s a must read.
Please, please, also read Amber Haines gorgeous book, Wild in the Hollow. Unbelievably raw, holy, and hopeful.
And, as promised, the link for Buddy Wakefield.

Thanks for reading my blog! My great passion is to use words to create environments where people can become who they actually are. Make sure to check out the following links to keep in touch with some of the other ways I’m using words to create space for people to grow and become.

This Good Word Podcast. I host a weekly podcast which comes out every Thursday. Every episode focuses on one ordinary word, as a way to reclaim what’s holy about our humanity. Sometimes I just talk into the mic, and sometimes I interview fascinating people. Take a listen here.
Beginnings: The First Seven Days of the Rest of Your Life. I published my first book in January 2016. It’s an imaginative look at the seven days of creation, as if they weren’t simply an event in time, but a process that describes God’s continual work of creating good in me, you, and the world. Order Now: Amazon | Books-A-Million | IndieBound | Barnes and Noble. It’s also available as an audiobook.
Genesis Covenant Church. I am the Senior Pastor at a beautiful, quirky little church called Genesis, where we rally around the idea that our job is to join God’s work of cultivating new beginnings in all of us, everywhere. Our sermons are interactive, done in the socratic style of questions which lead to more questions. You can check out our weekly sermons here. Enjoy! And if you’re anywhere near Minneapolis, we’d love to see you there.
