Measuring Your Version of Christianity – 659

There is a version of "Christianity that is troubling on many levels, and we must be aware and learn to measure it against the Word of God. Jesus did not die so that we can wallow in our sin. He died so that we can be reconciled to the Lord! Transformation happens in the deep as we pursue Jesus. If we spend all of our time in the shallows, we won't grow. Know your word, Sister, and don't miss today's podcast!


How Can We Support Public School Teachers? – 658

I talk a lot about homeschooling on my podcast, because it's what we do, but there are millions of children in public school each day being loved by their hard-working teachers. Today I have one of my closest friends as our special guest. Carol Bates is my daughter's mother-in-law, and is joining us to share how we can pray for and support teachers each day as they minister to all of our children, even if you don't have children in the public school system.

All Things Work Together For Good – 654

Romans 8:28 is one of the most claimed promises about the providence and grace of God in our ups and downs. If we rightly understand this truth, it unlocks a bulletproof joy in the midst of our circumstances, but if we wrongly understand it, we miss the depth of joy and comfort that God intends for us. There are two conditions that are critical for it's application. Don't miss our discussion about it today!


The Effects of Feminism on the Hearts of our Boys and Men – 653

Today I am answering a question from a listener who is frustrated by the attempts to emasculate men in our culture today, especially since she is trying to raise her boys to love and protect women.

The Slow Fade of Sexual Sin in the Church – 650

The cultural agenda toward sexual sin is grievous and doesn't seem to be skipping any area of our world today. It's God's heart for you that you would stand and be an ambassador for Jesus, no matter the cultural climate in which you find yourself. His heart is that you would love people like He did. He is love, but He is also holy and just. What does that mean for us in how we relate to those who claim that sexual sin isn't really sin after all?


Does the Bible Answer Questions About Sexuality? with Dr Georgia Purdom – 649

Every week, I receive heart-breaking emails and messages via social media from parents who are struggling to navigate their way through a confusing and deceitful new narrative regarding human sexuality. As Christians, God calls us to know His Word—and like all things related to His creation, God is not silent on the issue of human sexuality. Today, I am thrilled to introduce you to Dr. Georgia Purdom. We'll be talking for a few minutes about how we can be better equipped to answer the...


I can do ALL things through Christ… Is That Really In the Bible? – 648

We like to use "I can do all things through Christ..." as a good luck charm, but knowing the context of it is critical, especially so we can teach it correctly to our children.

It’s Not About You | Is that Really in the Bible? Week 5 – 645

Today, we're continuing our study "Is that Really in the Bible" from MomStrong International! Have you ever thought of yourself as the center of God's story? In a post-modern Church, that is often the case. We often have a tendency to insert ourselves into the center of biblical stories–we become the hero instead of seeing Jesus as the true hero or we reduce narratives down to a set of moral principles to apply so we can have a better life. This kind of man-centered reading and preaching can...


Why Do We Homeschool? – 644

People often ask me why my husband and I decided to homeschool our seven children. Truthfully, we never planned on homeschooling—but we have come to believe that it is the best educational option out there today for many reasons: socialization, educational opportunities, freedom... just for starters. If you're a parent who is sitting on the fence about homeschooling or if you're a seasoned homeschooler who has lost your vision for education, tune in today! Heidi has a big hug for you and a...
