Encouragement for the Coates Family

3/5/2021
Persecution is ugly. Canadian Pastor James Coates has been imprisoned for breaking the covid-19 "law," and has now been denied bail. His crime? Holding church services and being faithful to the Lord. The GraceLife Church pastor's trial will be in early May, and until then he will not be able to see his wife Erin or their young boys. It's a heartbreaking story. Michelle and Amy asked our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram followers to send in their prayers and words of encouragement for the...

The Poison of the Enneagram - with Marcia Montenegro

3/2/2021
Did you know that the nine "types" in the enneagram actually came from an occultist and his "spirit guide?" The popularity of the enneagram teachings in mainline and mega churches has exploded in the past year as more celebrity preachers are giving this unbiblical trend a green light. Amy and Michelle sat down with our special guest, Marcia Montenegro, co-author of the book, Richard Rohr and the Enneagram Secret. Marcia once was steeped in Eastern spirituality and the New Age and was...

Learning from the Sins of Others: Ravi Zacharias

2/23/2021
It hurts the entire Body of Christ when leaders fail. It can feel like a gut punch. The investigative report from Ravi Zacharias International Ministries has concluded, and it's worse than anyone could imagine. Amy and Michelle discuss the lessons learned from evangelical news stories of leaders caught in sin. Much more than a cautionary "what not to do," these heartbreaking events can teach us about Scripture, about God, and about how we can walk worthy in our own...

Finding - and BEING - a Godly Role Model

2/15/2021
"You can be anything," says the world, whenever a woman breaks a perceived glass ceiling. Not only do people celebrate her bravery, they elevate her to a role model for other young girls. This happened when Vice President Kamala Harris was elected and took office. But for Christian women and girls, it takes a lot more than two X chromosomes and a fancy job title to qualify as a role model. Michelle and Amy discuss how today's so-called worldly role models are anything BUT good examples for...

Facing an Uncertain Future

1/27/2021
Think 2020 was a not-so-fun year, and 2021 is just more of the same? God's Word tells us that for Christians, persecution and trials are still to come. How in the world are we to endure? Some would say that we should prepare to bug out, head for the hills or start stockpiling food and weapons. But is that really what the Bible says we should be doing? No! Michelle and Amy discuss how we as Christians can prepare to face whatever comes our way in the weeks, months and years we have left in...

Women Preaching?

1/13/2021
Words stand for something, right? The words we use in our Christian faith used to be fairly clear cut, but over the last few years some definitions seem to have become somewhat murky: evangelism, preaching, and how Christian women biblically fit into that equation.

How to Study the Bible - and How Not To!

12/31/2020
The Bible is supernatural. It is complete in itself and needs no other books or commentaries to supplement it. But how do we study it? One of the kindnesses God has shown us as unique people made in His image is that He hasn’t said there’s only one “right way” to spend time with Him in His Word. There are lots of “right ways,” and we're going to share those "hows." Warning: there are a few wrong turns we want to help you avoid in your journey, so you're going to get some tips on steering...

Christmas Dinner with the Sexual Sinner

12/9/2020
How should a Christian relate to someone in their lives who is obviously living in sexual sin, without appearing to condone this marriage? Thankfully, God does not leave us without answers. As with every other issue in life, our thinking, our words, and our actions must be shaped by and in submission to the authority of Scripture. Not public opinion. Not political agendas. Not our own personal feelings, opinions, and experiences. Scripture. Resources: Such were some of you: Ruth’s story –...

A Theology of Thanksgiving

11/23/2020
Do you have a theology that includes thanksgiving all year long? Even in the worst circumstances or the direst of situations? God wants His people to be thankful to Him, not just because He deserves our thanks, but because it is good for us to be thankful. It helps us fix our eyes on all He has done for us - from the greatest gift of all, giving His precious Son to save us from our sins. Michelle and Amy with you a Thanksgiving filled with gratitude and kindness. We are thankful for each...

Christians, the Church, and the Occult

11/17/2020
Whether we want to think about it or not, a lot of occult-like sorcery has crept into the visible church in recent years. Why would we want to talk about something that is so wicked and evil? Because A: God’s Word has a lot to say about it and warns His people to stay away from it, and B: Because Christians - or at least those professing to be Christians, are dabbling in it either knowingly or ignorantly.

Cussing, Profanity, and OMG

11/10/2020
It’s a topic that seems to rear its ugly head every few years: blue language, foul language, cussing, cursing, swearing, potty mouth, bad words. We’re talking about profanity. What does the Bible have to say about it? Is it OK for Christians to use 4-letter words? And what about pastors using expletives in the pulpit? And on a related note, what about Christians using the name of God as an expression, as in “OMG?” Resources: Mike Riccardi's Facebook post on "skubalon" Why is It Bad for...

Why Do We Celebrate Reformation Day?

Did you know that October 31 is Reformation Day? It's a time when Christians recognize and even celebrate a huge, game-changing event in our history more than 500 years ago: Reformation Day commemorates the beginning of the Protestant Reformation. Yet many Christians today are unaware of this landmark incident in their heritage which birthed the Protestant church.
