The HERalds Podcast: Season 2 Ep 2. Friendship, faith, giving up Amoung Us and luckily we have the Bible with Bella.
'I see him as a king. I see him as helping others. I see him as a father. And loving... when I'm with him I am always happy.'
Bella is 'ten turning eleven' on June 30th, and she's a child filled with a love for God, a challenging faith and a faith-filled hope for her friends and her community. Listen to Bella as she explores the kindness of God and her relationship with Jesus and the church. 'When I need help sometimes he's there for me. And there's luckily a Bible, so I read that. And I think that comes in with talking with him as well, after praying with him. And anytime you can pray with him - even if you're sad, happy, too happy - you can talk to him at any time.' Be inspired by the praise and worship that come from the lips of this young girl, embraced by a loving God and a fellowship of believers. Bella is the daughter of our Season 2 Ep. 1 HERalds guest, Diana Best - whose testimony of endurance, tenderness and faith have created a whakapapa of hope in Christ's blood and healing. We are blessed with these wahine toa of the Word!
Season 2: Ep 1. Finding your voice the right way through Jesus with Diana Best
We're back with a new season to bless your ears and spirit! In this episode, we are joined by Diana Best from The Salvation Army Upper Hutt. Diana speaks about a journey through a life of isolation, pain and needing to 'find her voice' in the wrong places - until she found the security of Jesus and the confidence to pursue the kingdom of God. Diana's journey of faith and growth reminds us each that Jesus is present in the highs and the hardships of life and God never leaves us behind.
6. Special: Live at Congress
Our special episode of The HERalds Podcast was recorded live at The Salvation Army's Encounter Congress 2019. Check it out to hear how Holy Spirit is at work through the women of The Salvation Army New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga and Samoa Territory. We had four women on our panel - and each is a formidable, evocative leader who serves Jesus and others in a way that is transforming their communities to the glory of God. Have a listen to their stories. From taking in homeless children to transforming women's opportunities on a world scale, this pod aims to uncover the hope that God is weaving through the history, heritage and future of those who labour in Jesus' name for The Salvation Army's sake.

5. 'Failing' as a woman, holiness as the fruit of healing, and tūrangawaewae for women with Ingrid Goodwin-Barratt
Tūrangawaewae is the Māori word for 'a place to stand, right to belong'. In this episode, we hear from passionate writer and advocate Ingrid Goodwin-Barratt - editor of The Salvation Army's War Cry magazine - about her struggle in casting off the shackles of expectation and gender roles, in order to discover who she really is. Ingrid's experience of finding a place to stand and a voice within The Salvation Army is inspirational, and she urges all women to feel anointed to do the same. Ingrid speaks about the ways God has led her to discover his word and teaching for herself, and how glory will be given to God as we become 'fully alive'.
