SBHH S216: Forgiveness—Moving Beyond the I'm Sorry

Today, we are zeroing in on the topic of forgiveness. Forgiveness is a central theme to the Gospel and therefore, as Christ followers, it should be a central theme in our lives. That means we are familiar with the act extending forgiveness and even asking for forgiveness, on the regular. We all are sinners, and we are all surrounded by other sinners, we live with, work with, hang with and go to church with sinners just like us. And wherever sin is present, the need for forgiveness isn’t...


SBHH S215: When Life Hurts—Understanding God as Our Refuge

Today’s topic is hopefully a very sweet word of encouragement for anyone who may be walking through some junk right now. Years ago, I had the chance to attend a lovely women’s bible study group that met every Wednesday morning. In our time together, we would not only share the struggles of life we were encountering, but we would also open up the Bible to see what God had to say on the topic. This became such a sweet spot for both truth and grace as I was in the middle of a seven-year long...


SBHH Bonus Episode: Mommy Wars Women's Round Table

While there truly are battles to be fought in this life, too often we make mountains out of molehills. Homebirth vs. Hospital Birth, Homeschool vs. Public School, eating habits, clothing choices, the list goes on and on. Have you ever looked at that other mother and thought, “If she only knew what I knew she’d be doing that differently?” Maybe you have been on the other side and have the friend who, while well meaning, always has an unsolicited opinion about how you should be raising...


SBHH S214: Meeting in the Messy Middle

This has been a rather interesting week for me. On Wednesday afternoons, I snag about 15 minutes of time and do a live video called Reset at Rest Time. It’s meant to be a nugget of encouragement for anyone who may need a little spiritual “reset” midweek. I have had a lot of fun doing them, but on my latest video, as I was sharing, I got super emotional and had myself a sweet little ugly cry LIVE. Let us just say it was awesome and humbling. (You can check it out for yourself). However,...


SBHH S213: Make Every Effort - What Jesus Asks of Us

In (Luke 13:24), Jesus says to “Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able.” I tend to have a spirit of laziness, especially in regards to my day to day life. I’m mainly a stay at home mom, who also works from home and homeschools. So I am home a lot. It is very easy to let self-discipline head out the door and just do enough to get by. While I strive for excellence in my work, I tend to procrastinate, and...


SBHH S212: Finding Strength Through Surrender

The Christian experience often speaks to us about the idea of “surrender.” Surrendering our will, surrendering to God’s will and more. Yet, it’s rarely a clearly defined term, even in Scripture. Join me on the show today as we explore the many examples of surrender that Scripture provides us, as well as the hard questions that follow when understanding how to apply the Christlike example of surrender to our lives. If you tend to resist the idea of surrender and much prefer the comfort of...


SBHH S211: FOTS—Self-Control an Interview with Rachelle Chase

Hello, Friends! Welcome once again to She’s Building Her House! Today marks our final show in our Fruit of the Spirit series that we have been exploring the last eight episodes. Throughout this series, I have interviewed nine incredible women, and each of them has shared how God cultivates these gifts of grace in their hearts and lives. Today we wrap up the series with my friend Rachelle Chase as we discuss how God desires to cultivate the fruit of self-control in our lives. In The...


SBHH S210: FOTS—Gentleness an Interview with Abi Craig

Today we are continuing our Fruit of the Spirit series. Throughout the last 7 shows, I have gotten to interview guests about each Fruit of the Spirit as listed in (Galatians 5). Together we have heard stories of how God cultivates each fruit, or gift of grace, in our hearts and lives. On this episode, I have my friend and fellow blogger Abi Craig of Joy in My Kitchen joining us to share the reason God cultivates a heart of gentleness in us and how He can cultivate a gentle spirit through...


SBHH S209: FOTS—Faithfulness an Interview with Tami Hayhoe

On today’s show, as we continue our Fruit of the Spirit series, I have my friend Tami Hayhoe joining us to share her story about how God has proven Himself faithful and, in turn, how He has taught her to walk faithfully. Apart from Christ, we cannot demonstrate unwavering faithfulness; any faithfulness in our stories are a testament to the faithfulness of our God. With that in mind, listen in as Tami shares her story of walking through difficult seasons of marriage, raising children as a...


SBHH S208: FOTS—Goodness an Interview with Wendy Willard

We are once again diving deeper into understanding the Fruit of the Spirit and today marks our sixth show in this series. My guest this week is Wendy Willard of FIT Nicaragua. I have been watching the work of FIT for the last year and over and over again, I have seen the provision of the Lord for this ministry and the families involved in so many ways. As I considered the story of this ministry, I kept coming back to the word “good.” That God is good. That God is a good Father who...


SBHH S207: FOTS—Kindness an Interview with Camille Cates

Today marks our halfway point in our Fruit of the Spirit series. I have gotten the chance to interview some incredible women along the way, and each woman has shared how God cultivates each gift of grace in our hearts and lives. In this episode, we are speaking on the Fruit of the Spirit of Kindness. I invited my friend, Camille Cates, to join me today because in her personal journey and her work with Healing Hearts, as a biblical counselor and in serving with youth, she has had the...


SBHH S206: FOTS—Patience an Interview with Tiffany Castleberry

Today we continue our series on the Fruit of the Spirit. This week, we dig into patience and since we are talking about patience today, I asked a friend who has had opportunity daily to walk through miles of patience, Tiffany Castleberry. Tiffany Castleberry is a mom to eight kids, wife to a doctor and the mom behind the A Mom’s Mission Field podcast. When I invited Tiffany to join me on the show, I asked her which “fruit” she thought God had been teaching her most about and she promptly...


SBHH S205: FOTS—Peace an Interview with Christy Boulware

Today is the third episode in our nine week series on the Fruit of the Spirit. Our topic today is on peace and my guest is Christy Boulware, of Fearless Women, to join us and share both her story about what it looks like to find peace in Jesus and offer encouragement for those who may be struggling with anxiety. Christy is a photographer, ministry leader and mom extraordinaire, but more than anything she is a follower of Jesus who wants to see women lead free and fearless lives. The...


SBHH S204: FOTS—Joy an Interview with Susan Smith

As part of this series, I wanted to interview guests on each show who have exemplified the fruit that we are specifically talking about that week. And since we are talking about joy today, I asked one of my most encouraging friends to be on the show. Susan Smith is a biblical counselor, wife, and a full-time homeschool momma to 3 Smithlings. One of the first things I noticed most about Susan was her joy. And while she had this southern hospitality charm to her, I knew there was something...


SBHH S203: FOTS—Love an Interview with Nicole Heitert

In (Galatians 5:22-23), Paul writes “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things, there is no law.” These verses are often referenced in regards to what Christians are supposed to look like and act like in our daily lives. But I think we often overlook a key point. How do we do this? And a second question may be who cultivates this in us? Today and for the next several episodes, I want to...


SBHH S202: Sin, Salvation, and Sanctification

Today we will be focused on the foundational building blocks of sin, salvation, and sanctification. These three words are tossed around a lot in church circles and often are like another language when heard by people who are either new to Christ or simply have not grown up in the church. The words “sin, salvation and sanctification” are weird and many times lack meaning or just a depth of understanding by many followers of Christ. So today, we will define what each word means, see its...


SBHH S201: The Glorious Message of the Gospel

As we begin season 2, I want to keep journeying on, digging into God’s Word, even more, hearing, even more, testimonies of Jesus in the lives of other women and we want to keep growing as we learn practical ways to help us build our house well. I wanted our first show in season 2 to focus on the most important thing of all. The Good News of Jesus Christ, also known as The Gospel. Our saving faith in Christ is the cornerstone from which all other aspects of our lives flow. If Christ is...


SBHH 022: Humility - The Ultimate Characteristic of Christ

In our previous show, episode 21, we took a deep look at the pride that is within each of our hearts, constantly battling within us to live this life around self instead of centered around the only worthy one, Yahweh God. The reason we addressed the heart issue of pride before today’s show is that Pride is the antithesis of humility and the greatest enemy of Christlikeness. Meaning that humility is the greatest characteristic of Christlikeness in our lives. I previously had such a wrong...


SBHH 021: Examining Ourselves Pride Goes Before the Fall

Welcome, Friend. We have spent the last several episodes examining what healthy relationships look like in the areas of Marriage, Friendships, and Parenting. Now, however, we want to take a hard look in the mirror to wrestle through the first and one of the most powerful sins, Pride. We have all thought to ourselves; so and so is prideful, not realizing all along that our perceptions of prideful people seldom include us. This week Rebecca examines several different types of pride that...


SBHH 020: Discussing Healthy Parenting with Melisa Wafford

Welcome, friends! Today’s topic is the final show in a three-part series on what it looks like to have healthy relationships. Today we are discussing the world of parenthood and joining me for this show is my special guest and dear friend, Melisa Wafford. I have known Melisa for the past four years and in that time, I have gotten to know both her and her family so well. One of the first things that stood out to me when I met their family was their genuine concern for others and the...
