    Same-Sex Attraction and the Christian Woman with Ellen Dykas

    Ep. 105 - Same sex attraction is a topic we've been wanting to cover for a long time. Many of you have DM'd us asking us to bring biblical truth and gospel centered hope to this conversation. We know this can be a very sensitive topic... that's why we've waited this long to bring the right person onto the show. Ellen Dykas has spent years loving and ministering to women who are wrestling with this struggle.

    Answering Your Hush-Hush Questions About Sex

    Answering Your Hush-Hush Questions About Sex

    Ep. 104 - Christian women often feel extremely uncomfortable talking about sex. It seems there is an unspoken rule to keep everything super "hush-hush." This is ridiculous. Most women have big questions about sex and we (as Christians) should be the first to talk about this area of life. God designed sex. There should be no shame in trying to understand the ins-and-outs of His good design.

    In today's episode, we're unpacking your biggest questions about sex & intimacy (all from a biblical worldview).

    Popular Advice Christian Women Give that's Actually Unbiblical

    Popular Advice Christian Women Give that's Actually Unbiblical

    Ep. 103 - Christian women are notorious for giving "feel good" encouragement. It might not be true. It might not be biblical. But, it makes us feel good in the moment.

    "You're enough."
    "Your turn is next!"
    "You'll get that baby soon."
    "Marriage is in your future."
    "Good things are coming your way."

    These all sound nice and great and make me feel good... but are they true? Are they biblical?

    In today's episode, we're unpacking why this "fluffy feel good" advice is more damaging than helpful.

    5 Things Christian Women Do Not Want

    Feminism has been the loudest voice in culture for women. Feminism acts like ALL women want abortion, autonomy, careers, power over men and more. But is that really true for ALL women? No.

    We took a poll on Instagram and you all submitted things you DO NOT WANT. Things like "hustle culture" and "being a boss babe." If you value femininity, motherhood, and chivalry, this episode is for you.

    How Do I Know If I Have the Gift of Singleness?

    How Do I Know If I Have the Gift of Singleness?

    Many Christian single women wonder if they have the gift of singleness. If marriage hasn't happened yet... maybe singleness is God's calling on your life. This is a legit line of thinking and one that deserves good/biblical answers.

    Join Kristen and Bethany as they bring clarity to this confusing conversation.

Born-again Beth ,

Engaging and encouraging! ❤️

I’m not really a “podcast person” haha, but I listened to Girl Defined’s most recent episode called “Can I be satisfied if I never get married?”
It was so entertaining to listen to, and convicting and encouraging. 🌸 I think the take-away message for me is to surrender my dreams of marriage to God and trust Him. So much easier said than done! But right after I finish this review, I want to pray and surrender this desire for marriage to God. He will work it out if it’s according to His will, according to His perfect purposes and timing. Thank you Kristen and Bethany for such a fun, convicting and encouraging podcast! I loved hearing your stories and they made me laugh 😊. Maybe I will become a “podcast person” after this…we’ll see. God bless you both as you continue serving God with the gifts He’s given you both. I’m sure that you are an encouragement to many Christian girls ❤️ Keep on shining for Jesus. Don’t be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. God bless you both! From Bethany 🌸 (cool that I have the same name as one of you haha yay!)
