Some of the most beautiful art in existence was born of great trauma and pain. Consider Vincent van Gogh, for example, or the Psalms written from a hiding place.

On this episode of Being Human, Steve Cuss welcomes two artists who both know great tragedy and have produced remarkable creative work: Charlie Peacock and Andi Ashworth. The married couple recently published a book, Why Everything That Doesn't Matter, Matters So Much: The Way of Love in a World of Hurt, and they join Cuss for a discussion of grief, art, and hospitality. Their conversation touches some of the couple’s lowest valleys and highest mountains. They talk about Art House America, which they founded in 1991, and how music and writing have been their companions in times of joy and sorrow.

Tune in for a vulnerable and rich discussion of marriage, self-reflection, and the hope of Christ in all things.
