Episode 55 – Maria Furlough

Today my guest is author & Bible teacher Maria Furlough and we talk about the message of her brand new book: CONFIDENT MOMS, CONFIDENT DAUGHTERS.

Now more than ever, we’re bombarded with perfect-looking people on the internet and all over social media. Maria and I have a great conversation about true beauty and about teaching our daughters how to be confident, how to love their bodies, and how to break free from insecurities that plague each of us heart and mind. Which, as we all know, is no easy task. In fact, it’s a task that has to begin with you and me.

Now, if you don’t have a daughter, stay with me! The fundamentals of what we talk about and the practical help applies to you too. This episode will help all of us put aside our obsessions with bodily perfection and refocus our hearts on becoming and raising a confident, godly woman.

EPISODE 52 – Sharon Jaynes

My Girlfriend in God co-founder Sharon Jaynes is joining me again on the GRACEOLOGIE show and this time we’re talking about her new book, LOVESTRUCK.

Everywhere we turn in our sex-saturated culture we are bombarded by destructive and unrealistic depictions of romance and sex. But is the problem that we focus on sex too much—or that we value sex too little? True sexual intimacy as God intended it, is so much more than a physical act, it is the intertwining of two souls through sharing and time.

The message of LOVESTRUCK and today’s episode is this: when we see the sacred blessings of sexual intimacy in marriage and understand God’s original intent, we find the freedom to enjoy and explore one of the Father’s most magnificent gifts.
