Mo resides in Columbus, OH in his very own haunted house! However, the source of his nightmares comes from the never-ending to-do list associated with the 140-year-old home he started renovating last year. When he isn’t working on that, which is often, he can typically be found lost in a fantasy book or off procrastinating on other projects. The starter of many stories and finisher of none, Mo is the Shaggy of our Mystery Gang. Listen as Stacey and JR. drag him into terror, kicking and screaming!
Amanda currently resides in Dallas, Texas with her esposo, JR. Her favorite things include speaking Spanish, spending quality time with friends or future friends, thrifting, eating delicious cuisine from all over the world, getting lost in a book, traveling, watching movies, and spontaneous adventures. She skates with Assassination City Roller Derby as the fearsome Mother Terrorista. This is Amanda’s debut into the podcasting world, and as you will discover she is by far the biggest chicken in the group. She may have a tough and laid back outer-shell but deep down even the dumbest movies give her nightmares. It is like a train wreck, you just cannot look away. You can connect with her on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
JR. lives in Dallas, TX with his wife Amanda. He’s a writer, blogger and pastor. He wrote Empathy for the Devil, which is about finding ourselves in the villains of the Bible. He also loves Batman, spirited debates and smoking meats. Check out his blog for his sermon podcast. In addition to Don’t Split Up!, JR. also cohosts the StoryMen (history, theology and pop culture), In All Things Charity (Wesleyan Feminist Theology) and Bible Bites (education and theology). He also blogs on faith and pop culture right here on NorvilleRogers.com. Follow him on Twitter, say Hi on Facebook or subscribe to his weekly e-newsletter on faith and pop culture.
