Hello and welcome to the Baha’i Blogcast with me your host, Rainn Wilson.
In this series of podcasts I interview members of the Baha’i Faith and friends from all over the world about their hearts, and minds, and souls, their spiritual journeys, what they’re interested in, and what makes them tick.
In this episode I interview Andy Grammer and his wife Aijia. We talk about how they met and what married life is like, the evolution of their careers, having a baby in the kitchen, trying to ‘keep it real’ in all that you do, tests and perseverance, songwriting, death and loss, becoming a Baha’i, their favourite Baha’i quotes, plus they even sing Aija’s favourite quote for us at the end of the podcast.
Here is the quote by Baha’u’llah from the Hidden Words that Andy refers to:
“O SON OF EARTH! Know, verily, the heart wherein the least remnant of envy yet lingers, shall never attain My everlasting dominion, nor inhale the sweet savors of holiness breathing from My kingdom of sanctity.”
And here is the reference to the quote that Aijia refers to which they sing:
“Whatever is done in love is never any trouble, and – there is always time.” Abdu’l-Baha was reported to have said this in 1908. This quote is taken from “Daily Lessons Received at Akka, January 1908” (page 42) by Helens S. Goodall and Ella Goodall Cooper.
Thanks for listening!
