Interviews with women just like you, seeking to know Jesus better through His Word

    Breaking Barriers | Sally Breen {S8 E10}

    Breaking Barriers | Sally Breen {S8 E10}

    Today, Bethany wraps up Season 8 of the DWTIW podcast with guest Sally Breen. Sally shares the barriers she experiences as a mother of three, “jolly” to 5 grandchildren, and wife to a pastor. In this season of Sally’s life, she has recognized her ability to “slow down” her days and how this helps in her relationship with the Lord. Sally shares with us experience and wisdom, and we hope this conversation blesses you, especially during this time.

    Thank you, sisters, for listening to Season 8: Breaking Barriers! We hope throughout these episodes you experienced hope and encouragement to break down the barriers you might be facing in your own life-- especially when seeking to spend time in God’s Word!

    If you are looking to dig into Scripture but are not quite sure how to begin, head to our “At Home in the Word” video series, Study Tools resource page, and Bible reading plans.

    Breaking Barriers | Felicia Davis {S8 E9}

    Breaking Barriers | Felicia Davis {S8 E9}

    We know this is a difficult time for our world, but be comforted sisters! God wants to meet you and draw you close today, wherever you are, whatever you are doing. Lean into Him for strength, and keep standing upon His Word. If you are feeling challenged when reaching for your Bible during this unique time, this season of the podcast is a great resource for you. Season 8 is all about the barriers we encounter when approaching God’s Word, and our guests share different ways God has taught them and helped them work to overcome those barriers!

    On today’s episode, Bethany sits down with Felicia Davis, a vibrant working mom who has a burning heart for the Lord. Felicia not only shares the difficulties she faces in this season of her life, but also the desire she has to fight for her time with the Lord. We pray this conversation would richly bless you during this uncertain time and encourage you to confront your own barriers to finding joy in God’s Word.

    Felicia wants to live in a world where we all see one other made in the image and likeness of God. When we view others with this perspective, it is easier to give grace instead of judgement. When she’s not working, you can find her spending time with her family, exercising at the gym, or watching sports. Her favorite scripture is Isaiah 26:3 (ERV): “God, you give true peace to people who depend on you, to those who trust in you.”

    She desires for women to steward their spheres of influence well. She believes we don’t need a microphone in hand or a visible platform to have an influence-- our families and communities are our biggest mission field, and God has us right where we are supposed to be.

    Breaking Barriers | Katelyn Lloyd {S8 E8}

    Breaking Barriers | Katelyn Lloyd {S8 E8}

    On this season of the podcast, we’ve been investigating what can keep us from the Word of God. Today, Bethany sits down with Katelyn Lloyd to discuss the barriers she encounters in her current season of life as a new work-from-home mom. Katelyn opens up about the struggles she has with time and comparison when trying to sit down with her Bible. Katelyn discusses the Lord’s faithfulness and character, which transcend all seasons of life. We hope their conversation encourages you to not fall into comparison or guilt, but to delight in the Living Word.

    Katelyn wants to live in a world where, at red traffic lights, everyone has to get out and dance to whatever song is coming through their speakers. When she’s not being a mom to Liam, you can find her knee deep in crafts, head buried in a book, or cozied up on the couch with her golden retriever, Moose!

    Her favorite scripture at the moment is actually the inspiration behind her side “creative business,” Abundant Life Co.: “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly” (John 10:10).

    Breaking Barriers | Kjersti Fry {S8 E7}

    Breaking Barriers | Kjersti Fry {S8 E7}

    As we continue to talk through breaking different barriers to approaching our Bibles, today’s episode features Kjersti Fry, a pharmacy student who desires to grow in her relationship with the Lord as she works on completing her degree. As Bethany and Kjersti discuss the long days of student life, Kjersti shares her desire to carve out time to dwell in God’s Word and the joy, knowledge, and peace she receives from it. Whether or not you are a current student, we hope you relate to the barriers Kjersti faces, and we pray this conversation will encourage you to break through them!

    Kjersti wants to live in a world where Jesus' name is always praised. When she's not studying for her pharmacy classes, you can find her spending time with her family, going for runs outside, or drinking coffee with friends. Her favorite scripture is 1 Corinthians 2:9: "For no eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has planned for those who love Him."

    Breaking Barriers | Kacey Dixon {S8 E6}

    Breaking Barriers | Kacey Dixon {S8 E6}

    In today’s episode, Bethany sits down with DWITW team member and guest, Kacey Dixon! Today, Bethany and Kacey share wisdom with us concerning the cultural context of the Bible. We live in a world vastly different from the days of the Bible. Kacey highlights the importance of understanding those differences so we can better understand God’s Word and apply it to our lives. Our culture can pose as a barrier, a lens, or filter when we read our Bibles, but we pray this episode inspires you to not only dig into the Word, but enjoy its context and history as well!

    Kacey wants to live in a world where people are not only hearers of the Word, but doers. When she's not taking care of her three kiddos, you can find her doing ministry and helping her husband run his small business. Her favorite scripture is 2 Corinthians 4:16-18, because it reminds her to focus on what is important and eternal instead of what is temporary or transient. Some influential teachers in her life have been John Piper and Jen Wilkin.

    Breaking Barriers | Lisa Callahan {S8 E5}

    Breaking Barriers | Lisa Callahan {S8 E5}

    Last week on the podcast, Jillian and Mary Kay discussed mental health and how it can influence our relationship with God and His Word. Today, Bethany sits down with guest, Lisa Callahan to continue the conversation about mental health and walking with the Lord. Lisa, a vibrant mom who shines for Jesus, opens up about her own struggles with mental health, specifically with anxiety and panic. She shares how she relates to specific people in God’s Word and the importance of reminding ourselves and others of His true character. We hope Lisa’s honesty and vulnerability is both a comfort and encouragement for you this week!

    Lisa wants to live in a world where we find much to laugh about. When she’s not being a mama to Gianna, you can find her enjoying alone time at Starbucks or finding something to organize!

    Her favorite scripture is Psalm 121:1-8: “I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber.Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.”
