In our culture, if a woman is said to have strength it usually means she is competing with a man or acting like a man.

What if there is strength in the way God made us, as women?
There is and we recognize it when we see it.

We are excited to introduce you to women who display true strength, not in spite of being women but because of it.

    33. One Race, One People, One Savior with Monique Duson

    33. One Race, One People, One Savior with Monique Duson

    Is there a Christian view of race? Does it match with what the culture is telling us? Monique Duson, founder of The Center for Biblical Unity and co-host of the All The Things Podcast, explores the false narrative of Critical Race Theory, a view she once advocated, and instead puts the emphasis on the Gospel. Monique has a heart for unity among all people, especially those of us in the Church.

    31. Our Bodies Proclaim the Gospel with Christopher West

    31. Our Bodies Proclaim the Gospel with Christopher West

    So often, the conversation around masculinity and femininity starts with the question of roles. We ask questions like, “What should we do?” rather than asking, “What are men and women for?” In our conversation with Christopher West, president of the Theology of the Body Institute, we talk about our design, especially the physical design of our bodies, and how this design proclaims the Gospel.
