There’s always those topics that we hear about in church but haven’t always had explained to us. In today’s episode I get into the how, what, why of fasting, so hopefully you’ll find yourself excited to step into this under-utilized doorway to increasing the anointing on your life and deepening your walk with Jesus! (Spoiler: it’s a tool to destroy the works of the enemy in your life!). Share this episode with anyone you know who has wondered about fasting… it is far more powerful than we realize!! And stay tuned for the life hacks where I get super practical and dig into a product I love for staying tan all year long.

Ep 61: Discipleship: What is it and why does it ACTUALLY matter w/Podcaster Courtney Lowman

In this final month before our season break, I wanted to dig into the foundations of our faith because of how essential they are, under-explained, and yet super refreshing it is to have a straight forward look at what our faith builds on.  Simple, straightforward, unfussy.  So in this episode my guest Courtney Hail from Journey of Ruth Podcast, shares her heart and approach on Discipleship… you know, that thing Jesus told us to stay busy doing but so few actually understand.  Well, after this episode, you’ll have some really practical steps on how to build this practice into your life and experience the reward of knowing you’re putting your hands to something of eternal value, and fulfilling God’s mandate for your life as a believer!

Ep. 58- Love the Teenage Years by Being a Better Listener w/Jenilee Samuel

Listen to this Episode HERE

Most parents I know tell me to “savor the little years because the teenage years are the WORST!”  I always grimmace a bit at these dooms-dayers.  Why?  Why should I need to hate the teen years? I want to enjoy my kids even as teens.  So, I began paying attention, even before I had kids, trying to figure out why the teen years were so difficult for parents.  In this episode I share some things I’ve learned as a youth pastor, Pastor and now a mom of a couple teens and tweens, and I believe there is one magic key that can make ALLLL the difference.  Spoiler: my mom LOVED having all four of us as teens, and she was good at this… LISTENING. Let’s dive into this simple, but powerful tool! Don’t forget to come follow me on Instagram for all the latest updates, and to say hey!

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

My youngest, Shiloh, is currently 9!

SHOWNOTES: 

Romans 10:17

Deuteronomy 5:32-33; 6:5-9

  1. Everything has a price… What price are you willing to pay (comfort, convenience, time, etc) to get the word of God in your kid’s hearts? 

2.  What Goes in will come out.  You will reap what you sow.  PUT IN the Word of God if you want to reap godly character in your children. 

3. As parents, we must model a lifestyle built on the word of God. 

-Example of my mom who was transformed by the word of God; Dad who had morning quiet times in the word; Your kids need to see your process of being changed by the word of God.  

PRACTICAL WAYS TO GET THE WORD INTO THEM

1. Memorize scripture through  phrase-upon-phrase repetition during built in times like meal times, nap time, bedtime.  

2. Rules and boundaries at home need to be built around the word of God, and the kids need to know this. 

3.  Word of God is useful for correcting, rebuking, edifying, etc.  Use the word of God as kind guidance in the discipline moments with your children.  They need to see your reasoning comes from the word. 

4.  Write it on surfaces around the house.  Mirrors, wall hangings, hung on fridge, etc. 

5. Family Time where you read the word of God; ask what it means to them, have them imagine it. What does this tell us about God. What does it tell you about yourself? How can this change your life?

6.  Listen to the word of God in your car! If you’re listening, pull them in on it. 

7.  Talk about life situations. Ask thought provoking questions.  Ask if a scripture might apply.

 8.  Share what you’re learning from the Word. 

9. Discuss what you saw in a movie, the messaging, and how it compares to the Word of God. 

10.  Regulate other voices going in through entertainment, peers, social media, music, etc.  What goes in, comes out.  

11.  When there’s behavioral issues, it’s a thinking problem.  There are lies present in their thinking somewhere.  So bring correction by having them look up scriptures that are relevant to this area of struggle.

Katie Axelson in all her coffee glory!

Ep. 49: Being a Feeler is Your Superpower! w/Yvonne Repel

Feelers unite!  It can be tough to be a feeler.  You walk into a room full of people and suddenly it’s like you stepped into an emotional field of landmines, picking up on people’s happy, sad, mad, and glad.  All the feelers know the exhaustion that comes from having emotional antennas that are constantly sensing the invisible climate of a space, and sometimes it’s hard to know what’s you, and what’s the guy next to you.  Today’s guest, Yvonne, shares how this wiring is beautiful, from God, and can be a vehicle to hear his voice and have the ability to speak truth to the hearts of people in a unique and powerful way. It’s also a superpower that can enable you to then SHIFT an atmosphere intentionally.  If you’re a feeler, you’ll appreciate this episode. If you’re NOT a feeler, you might have a little more empathy for the feelers around you!  Share this episode with the feelers you know!  (Or the thinkers who need help understanding you a little better 😉 )
