    S8.17 | The Myth of Self-Reliance: Relying on God in our Struggles

    S8.17 | The Myth of Self-Reliance: Relying on God in our Struggles

    Welcome back, friends, to Affirming Truths - where we journey together in faith and courageously confront our struggles. 
    In this season's finale, we'll delve into why it's okay not to be the tough kid who handles everything on their own. In an age where pop culture, like Taylor Swift's latest hit, tells us we can and should shoulder our pain alone, we'll explore a different narrative—one anchored in Christ's presence and strength in our weakness. 
    Join me in discovering the power of surrendering to God, rethinking self-reliance, and embracing our limits as a pathway to true peace and divine strength.

    S8.16 | The Proverbs 31 Woman in Context

    Today, we dive deep into a topic familiar, yet often misunderstood, in Christian circles: the Proverbs 31 woman. 
    Many women carry the weight of feeling inadequate as they measure their lives against this biblical icon of virtue. Carla delves into the heart of Proverbs 31, bringing to light the true audience and intention behind these ancient verses. 
    This episode emphasizes the importance of context in interpreting scripture, ensuring that instead of striving for an unattainable ideal, we focus on cultivating a heart that pursues God. 
    Carla's insights aim to lift the weights off women's shoulders, redirecting the focus from performance to a life overflowing with the fruits of a true relationship with God. 
    Join us as we look beyond the surface and redefine what it means to embody the essence of a Proverbs 31 woman

So inspired.

Carla speaks from the heart. Having faced so many difficult times over the past few years, hearing her speak spirit infused encouragement has brought me back to the surface of a joyful life. This is a podcast for everyone and anyone. Sometimes I listen to one of her themed podcast over and over…her words washing over my burdens, insecurities and fears like spiritual healing. So blessed to have this podcast in my life.

The good the bad the ugly/The prodigal daughter

I feel so encouraged by Carla’s podcasts!!! Carla’s journey and her vulnerability gives me hope 🙏🙏 I think what struck me the most was when she said “God already knows what’s going to happen” I listen to this podcast at the perfect time and I will continue to listen as she drops each Podcast one at a time. Lifelong listener here 🙌🙌
