Can we disappoint God?

2/8/2021
Episode 73 - "If you only knew...", Jesus tells His disciples. What would you change in your life, if you only knew?, He asks us today. "If you only knew what I have in store for you; if you only knew how much the Father loves you; if you only knew who you are in His sight; if you only knew how truly breathtaking in glory and splendor and meekness I am..."

What do your enemies say about you?

2/1/2021

Have you noticed how people of different opinions can suddenly unite against a common foe? We see it happen today when 4 distinct people groups, who mutually...

Finding inspiration in the mundane

1/18/2021
Episode 70 - Stephanie invites you to taste the spices of the gospel today in a live teaching recorded at a women's event about Luke 12-16. It feels a little like traditional Bible Study, with a live audience and all the sounds that accompany it (Bible pages bristling, anyone?). Most of our lives are spent "in the middle." Not in the deep pits of the darkest valleys, and not in the breathtaking moments of the mountaintops, but in the daily, mundane, normal middle life. So today we talk about...

1/11/2021
Episode 69 - Stephanie takes us deep into two very, maybe overly familiar stories: the bleeding woman Jesus heals, and the young daughter Jesus resurrects. And yet today, we invite you to discover new flavors in this "common" recipe. We dive deep in the meaning of the 12 years, and the tassels on Jesus' garment, the famous "tzitzits." We discover the deeper meaning of the prayer shawl He wore, and the color of the Throne Room of Heaven. It has to do with being seen, and never invisible to...

Are you wondering how to cling to God through your "why" questions?

11/16/2020
Episode 61 (Psalms, 6th and final session) – We are continuing our conversation about despair and darkness in the Psalms (see Episode 60 for Part 1). We are looking at what matters more than the label you can put on your darkness: the places where God calls us to go. Psalms 88 and 39 are utterly dark, without any shred of hope. Even in their despair, they show us the way to God. Keep talking to Him when things seem hopeless. Don’t shut HIM out—even if you feel like it. Acknowledge His...

Have you ever wondered, "WHY, God?"

11/9/2020
Episode 60 (Psalms, 5th session)– Stephanie invites us into two very special Psalms that answer our “why” questions with the very wisdom of God. Psalms 42 and 43 take us into the depths of depression, where we ask the hard WHY questions until we get to the core of the answer. How can Scripture teach us to find joy in our pain? Why is a longing for God the starting point to healing from despair? What does Scripture teach about sorrow and despair? More importantly, what does Scripture tell us...

Have you ever been puzzled or shocked by a Bible verse?

Episode 58 (Psalms, 4th session)– Have you ever come across a verse in the Bible and wondered, “I have no idea what this means!” Or, worse, have you ever been downright shocked by a verse that seems vengeful, or vicious, or just plain mean or mysterious? How about... “Happy is the one who dashes your babies against the rock, Babylon.” Yes, this is a verse in the Bible. Psalm 137:9, to be exact. Now, how does one reconcile this with God’s kindness and patience? How can Scripture be more than...
