Back at home this week, Tony sat down with to talk about what really matters with Aaron Alford. What really matters? Beards. Aaron runs a website, social media platform, and recently wrote a book about the intersection of hairiness and holiness called "Bearded Gospel Men". Aaron and Tony connect over how both of their bearded pursuits have created opportunities to talk to people about what they believe and to nourish people's faith and follicles.
Aaron is also Canadian transplant who grew up Baptist, served as a missionary with YWAM, and then was attracted to the Catholic faith and is currently serving as seminarian for the Diocese of Las Cruces.
We are giving away a copy of Aaron's new book over on our Facebook page. Comment and share for a chance to win.
