Episode 70 – Melissa D’Arabian

Melissa D’Arabian joins me for episode #70 to talk about how God uses food to invite us into His love.

Food plays a big roll in all of our lives. Sure, it’s a universal necessity, but also the source of so much joy. Especially around the holidays. As she prayed, studied Scripture, and reflected on the stories from her own life, Melissa saw how God used food to draw her into community, redeem moments of tragedy, and ultimately connect her more deeply with Him.

I’m confident you’re gonna love this discussion with Melissa because it jump starts a deeper conversation about food and the power it has to bring us together, draw out the best in us, and help us hear God’s voice in the midst of all.

Episode 69 – Mark Batterson

Mark Batterson joins me for episode #69 to talk about importance of making GRATITUDE and GENEROSITY a lifestyle. We all have challenges and brokenness… and sometimes the trials in our lives can keep us from seeing the ways God is at work IN us and the opportunities for Him to be at work THROUGH us. We often ask God to change the circumstances that are actually meant to change us and miss seeing His blessings in the blisterings. Mark believes the key to radically increasing your faith, joy and abundance can be found in these three words: FLIP THE BLESSING.

I’m confident you’ll be both challenged and changed as you listen by what the Bible has to say about the HISTORY and MYSTERY of God’s blessings.

Episode 66 – Sharon Hodde Miller

Sharon Hodde Miller joins me for episode #66 to talk about why we love to be liked and why God Calls us to more. The church has deemed NICENESS a virtue and, ultimately allowed it to become an idol. In place of real, Christ-like courage, kindness, conviction and discipline, many people fall into the traps of people-pleasing, popularity contests and manufactured joy in exchange for likeability. This episode will challenge your understanding of the false virtue, and help you start practicing true kindness, honesty, courage and joy.
