66: Eric & Kristin Hill | The First Breakfast
What are the broken places of your story you long to see redeemed?
On today’s episode we had the incredible honor of chatting with our new friends and founders of WithYou Ministries, Eric and Kristin Hill. Eric and Kristin share with us their journey of jumping out of the boat to follow Jesus into the unknown, trusting Him to lead them along the way and into a life of greater peace and rest in Him. We talk about the courage it takes to take a huge risk, how to narrow the target of your calling, and the people of faith we become on the other side of surrender.
We also chat with The Hills about their latest project, The First Breakfast, following the journey of Jesus and Peter through calling, brokenness, and restoration. We talk about how the relationship between Jesus and Peter is also a picture of the Father’s relationship with us, how the way Jesus continues to pursue Peter, even in his brokenness, and how time in the presence of Jesus is the most transforming force the world has ever known.
We hope this conversation will encourage and remind you that the same invitation for restoration Jesus offered to Peter is the same invitation extended to us today.
“Everyone should ask themselves, ‘How can I be a tangible expression of God’s love?”
“It was more about where God was calling us than where we were called to leave.”
“We wanted to do the stuff that Jesus actually did.”
“What’s God doing in you?”
“We have to be honest with ourselves about what exactly God’s put in us, and what He has called us to.”
“The intentionally of Jesus with Peter is astounding. The same is true for His pursuit of us.”
“Right from the beginning, a theme emerges, and we see, it’s not about Peter and his commitment to Jesus, it’s about Jesus and his covenant to Peter.”
“It was his time in the presence of Jesus that transformed him from Simon the Fisherman into Peter the Rock.”

Learning to live from a posture of rest because I believe what He’s already done, and because I receive who He already says that I am.
