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.

Is there something GOD is asking you to do that you know you couldn’t possibly do on your own? Deep down inside, you know you’re on this planet for a reason. God has a plan in mind just for you. In fact, He chose you for His plan before the foundation of the world. He designed you very specifically for this time and this place, and He’s perfectly equipped you to accomplish His purpose on earth.

EPISODE 50 – Lisa-Jo Baker

Do you ever get discouraged by the un-glamorous sides of midlife, momming, matrimony or muffin-tops?

Episode #50 is full of intimate and inspirational reflections on midlife. My guest Lisa-Jo Baker invites women to get a good look at their middles and gives permission to embrace them–beyond what the media, the mirror, the magazines, or our teenagers say. Through gutsy, beautiful storytelling, she admits out loud what most women are thinking about marriage, parenting, failure, and how badly we all want to buy those matching Magnolia Market mugs.

WHAT IF as a result of facing fears and taking intentional steps forward from where you currently are, you ended up with more time, money, energy, passion and purpose than you ever imagined possible? Sounds pretty amazing, right?

Episode #49 is all about PURSUING YOUR DREAMS with CONFIDENCE. My guest is RACHAEL GILBERT. She and I have a great time talking about the labels we give ourselves, the limitations we place on ourselves and the impact these have on our willingness to chase those personal and professional goals.

Rachael and I agree: God often surprising us with assignments and opportunities, especially when we’re willing to say YES to HIS nudges.
