Ep. 144: The Natural Man

5/24/2024
My friend Harrison comes into the fray with Fan Favorite Annette to discuss what it means that the Natural Man is an enemy to God. We dig in to the idea of the Natural Man, and how better understanding our own natural men and women can make it easier for us to become who God wants us to be. Thoughts?

Ep. 140: Decisions, Decisions

4/26/2024
This is NOT a repeat of last week's conversation. Actually, we bring Annette back for her perspective. I heard someone ask rhetorically if, when we pray about a decision, are we expecting God to decide things for us? We talk about what takes us so long to decide things and what we think God's role is (or should be) when we are making decisions or our life. Please like, share, subscribe, and give us a review.

Ep. 138: Music and the Gospel, with Nathan Bradford

4/12/2024
Easter was a few weeks ago, but it's still fresh in my mind. I mentioned on my Easter episode that I had heard some new music published by Nathan R. Bradford (https://linktr.ee/nathanrbradfordmusic for links to his content) and I was impressed. I reached out to Nathan, and he was kind enough to chat. We talk about his process, and how he uses music to enhance the stories (and doctrines) that are taught in the scriptures. Give his music a listen. It will help bring the scriptures to life.

Ep. 131: Belief or Faith

2/23/2024
As a boy, my dad reported that he prayed for years to understand what faith is. And he didn't teach me what he learned. Just that he better understood faith. I have had a hard time understanding how to distinguish belief from faith. So, Annette and I tackle this one.

Ep. 128: Does God Have a Plan for us? And If So, What Is It?

2/2/2024
We recently talked about expectations we can (should?) have of God. And, we also have talked about whether we have to like God's plan for us. And then Annette wanted to push back on what it means for God to have a plan for us. So, here we are. Annette and Brendan discuss their opinions on God's plan.

Ep. 127: Do I Have to Love God's Plan for Me?

1/26/2024
Life is HARD. And then you die. (OR someone close to you does.) Brendan raises the question, do I have to love God's plan for me? We can assume His plan is perfect. We can assume His plan will take us where we need to go. We can assume His plan will teach us what we need to be and do. But do we have to like it? Do we have to enjoy the process? This is our take. The short answer is no. The long answer is no. So how do we survive it? Please like, share, subscribe, and give us a review.
