It has been a joy to talk with Caroline Saunders about discipleship! In this episode, we will discuss Jesus’ perfect example of discipleship and how He based it on three vital aspects. Of note, Caroline exhorts, “Discipleship is up-close ministry. In those up-close places, that is where change really happens.” If you need a practical kick to go out and make disciples, stay tuned to the gems that Caroline gives us in this chat.
Amanda is a wife, mom, writer, podcast host, Pastor, and has the prettiest and most inspirational Instagram feed you’ll ever run across. Amanda writes ever so eloquently about how to see the Holy in the Ordinary and how to notice God in everyday life. You all, as we speak on this topic, I’m praying that you will see God in everyday, ordinary moments and that He may be glorified all the more in your life.
Today on Unaltered Grace Podcast, I am speaking with Chelsea Stanley, who is a writer, wife, mom, and Redeemed Daughter of God. We will chat about how to honor your parents in a Christ-like way. Often, we think of the command to “Honor Your Parents” to apply solely to young children. But today we are specifically talking to adults about honoring your parents. Therefore, we will learn that this command is applicable life-long, and obeying this command can exude Christ-likeness. This conversation left me with feelings of forgiveness, repentance, and grace; along with equipping me with plenty of application to put into practice. I’m praying the same over you as you listen!
On today's episode, Halie and I talk about the struggles of practicing Sabbath and how counter-cultural it is. Sabbath is against what the world values, but we will discuss how God values- and how He has graciously created- rest. We will learn how we can walk in this rest and in light of the gospel as we fix our minds on who Jesus is and learn how He came to give us rest.
In this episode, I get the privilege to speak with Bruce Fredrickson, who was my childhood Pastor. Bruce is a retired US Army Chaplain, has served also in the Marine Corp, was an Assemblies of God Pastor, and is currently working as a Chaplain in a Cancer Unit. We tackle the age-old, top google-searched question of “Why does God”… allow pain and suffering? This question gets personal as Bruce has been diagnosed with cancer within the last year and a half. We will hear him speak about how God is faithful amidst life’s circumstances. We will be reoriented to a Biblical worldview that provides the groundwork for how we should approach this question as Christians. This conversation came at the most opportune time for me to listen and to take part in; and I’m praying the same over you, as well!
In this episode, we will glean practical tips about how to memorize verses of the Bible. We will also discuss the vast importance of storing up God’s Word in our hearts. Savannah reflects, “The truths in Scripture help remind me that my reality isn’t defined by my feelings. Our reality is told to us in the pages of God’s Word. That has been really important for me to cling to. It is still so easy for me to forget these truths. Even after being a Christian for years and years, it’s so easy to forget. And that’s not an accident, the Enemy wants us to forget these things.” Let’s walk away from this episode with our notecards in hand and our hearts and minds armed and ready to memorize God’s great Word!
We acknowledge that walking with Jesus can feel like more of a pursuit than an 'easy' walk. On today's episode, I will chat with Amy Hornbuckle about how we, as Christians, are called to walk out our faith in our everyday lives. We will share about some personal struggles in doing this, and about how community with other believers can help teach us how to walk like Jesus did. We will hear Amy talk about the importance of spiritual disciplines (prayer, Bible reading, etc.) and how to practically begin and sustain those in our lives. It was such a joy to speak with Amy about this and I came away from this conversation feeling refreshed to "lace up my shoes" so to speak- and wholeheartedly follow Jesus!
On this episode, I get the privilege to talk with Aubrey Golbek, a Registered Dietician. We will learn about God’s Unaltered Grace that He can give us through food and through eating habits. Aubrey speaks about intuitive eating, and really, just grace-filled eating. I learned so much from this episode, and I kind of walked away sort of paradoxically being okay with eating chocolate chips and Cheetos, but really also having a strong desire to glorify God in my eating habits and to take care of my body well for His glory. This conversation is so much more than dieting or more than just intuitive eating. Aubrey speaks the truth over us today! I pray this conversation blesses you as it did me!
In this episode, I chat with Bethany Barendregt: wife, momma, and founder of Women Encouraged. She shares so many practical tips on how to be more hospitable, on how hospitality has looked within the different seasons of her life, and she really highlights the importance of community. We both share about the many times we have desired greater community within the body of Christ and the ways that we have experienced this community. Bethany also talks about the topic of loneliness and she discusses how to cling to Christ in seasons of loneliness. You guys, she shares so much godly wisdom about a myriad of topics. I am thrilled to pass on the wealth of knowledge!
In this episode, we will be Biblically inspired, equipped, and implored to remain freshly planted in Jesus and in God's Word. We will hear from Jasmine Allred in how she practically remains freshly planted in Jesus and what being "freshly planted" means.
