    #345: What You Need to Know About Progressive Christianity

    Compassionate. Inclusive. Nonjudgmental. Who wouldn’t want to be part of a church like this? It’s why Progressive churches are so appealing—especially to young people looking for something different from the church they grew up in. Today Juli sits down with Alisa Childers, apologist and author of Another Gospel?, to hear her story of doubt, deconstruction, and rediscovering the Truth—and to learn why Progressive Christianity is so dangerous to the Christian faith. You don't want to miss this episode!

    #344: Standing Strong: Tackling Fear, Self-Doubt & Insecurity

    Alli Worthington says the popular message that “you are enough” is leaving women feeling overwhelmed and burnt out. As a business coach to future writers, speakers and podcasters following their God-given dreams—she would know.  While this little phrase sounds good—and even makes us feel good—it’s pointing us in the wrong direction. Join Juli and Alli to hear how the secret to strength, grace, and stepping into the dream God has planted in your heart is obedience and dependence on Him.

    Lysa TerKeurst tells Juli about the brokenness and restoration of her marriage and how forgiveness is both a decision and a process.

    #342: The Good Gift of Courage (And Why You Need It)

    #342: The Good Gift of Courage (And Why You Need It)

    We talk often on Java with Juli about our culture’s confusing messages around sexuality. But today’s guest, Russell Moore, contends that we’re not so much confused about what is true or right as we are fearful; fearful of standing alone, fearful of swimming against the tide of culture. In this episode, hear how the gift of courage is not about bravado, performance, or getting on one's soapbox. Instead, courage is born in the unseen moments when we are utterly dependent on God—moments where He shapes us for His glory and also for the benefit of generations to come.

    #341: When Staying Married Feels Impossible

    #341: When Staying Married Feels Impossible

    Circumstances in Laurie’s life started triggering her memories of childhood sexual abuse. Her lifelong struggle with same-sex attraction flared.  Alone on a silent retreat, she recommitted herself to God and to her husband Matt.  But she wasn’t sure she would ever be able to be sexually intimate with him again. 

    Matt wanted a marriage with the comforts of sexual intimacy and to be pursued physically by his wife, yet he knew forcing Laurie to do either would not only be ineffective, but unchristlike as well.  This marriage felt impossible.
    Does your marriage feel impossible, too? Find hope here.

A rich resource.

I learn so much from Juli and her guests. Principles and truths that apply to my marriage, parenting, friendships, and to helping or understanding people to whom I am reaching out. It's also a great place to hear of OTHER resources I might like to track down. It feels like my reading list grows and grows as I listen to these podcasts.
