Life’s a journey we were never meant to walk alone. We all need friends along the way! On the Journeywomen podcast we’ll chat with Christian leaders about gracefully navigating the seasons and challenges we face on our journeys to glorify God.

    Legalism with Jason Cook

    Legalism with Jason Cook

    Today we’re wrapping up our Blind Spots series with a conversation on legalism with Jason Cook. If you don’t know him, Jason is a husband, father, and the lead pastor at Fellowship Bible Church in Roswell, GA. We can’t think of a better conversation to wrap up not only this series, but also this year! 
    On a personal level, this has been such a helpful series for each member of our team. We pray the Lord has used it in your life as well. Thank you for humbly considering the blind spots you’re maintaining. We pray you take time to bring those before the Lord and before friends in your local church context to simply ask for their help. 



    DISCUSSION QUESTIONS
    Do you ever tend to seek to merit God’s salvation outside of the work of Christ? What are some legalistic tendencies or trends you have noticed in yourself? What is the good news of the gospel of God’s grace, and how does it speak to the struggle of legalism? How might you take a step today to walk in obedience to the Lord while still confidently resting in salvation by grace through faith alone? What might you do or implement based on what you learned in this week’s episode?

    Finances with Jen Wilkin and Elizabeth Woodson

    Finances with Jen Wilkin and Elizabeth Woodson

    In this week’s episode, we are digging into the topic of finances! Money can often be a blind spot for many of us, myself included, so we are excited to learn how we can steward well what God has entrusted us with. We are particularly excited to share this episode with you because it is actually a LIVE recording of a conversation I got to have with Jen Wilkin and Elizabeth Woodson at The Gospel Coalition Women’s conference back in June!
    We pray this conversation compels you to take an honest look at your finances to see how you can best steward what the Lord has entrusted you with. Our hope is that in doing so, you would come to rely more deeply on the Lord as your Provider!


    DISCUSSION QUESTIONS
    How would you describe your relationship with money? Do you have any examples you can look to of people who have epitomized what it looks like to steward money well? How does the gospel drive you to give generously and to live differently in regard to the way you steward your money? How have you seen God richly provide for you in a season where you have been experiencing lack? What might you do or implement based on what you learned in this week’s episode?

    Self-Sufficiency with Christine Gordon and Hope Blanton

    Self-Sufficiency with Christine Gordon and Hope Blanton

    Today we’re continuing our current series, Blind Spots, by talking about a particularly sneaky one—self-sufficiency. For many of us the desire to “do it ourselves” and be independent can be incredibly strong, but today our friends Hope Blanton and Christine Gordon of At His Feet Studies are going to help us understand the beauty of dependence.
    We pray this conversation encourages you to lift your eyes from yourself, to release your grip on all the things you strive to do, and to look instead to Christ, whose grace is enough to sufficiently meet your every need. 



    DISCUSSION QUESTIONS
    What does the pull of self-sufficiency look like in your life?  What are we essentially saying when we decide to rely on ourselves instead of fully relying on God? How might you come alongside someone else in their limits or encourage someone else to embrace their God-given limits for the glory of God? What might it look like for you to rely on the Lord while you tackle your to-do list today? What might you do or implement based on what you learned in this week’s episode?

    Unforgiveness with Vaneetha Risner

    Unforgiveness with Vaneetha Risner

    Today we’re starting a brand new series called “Blind Spots.” Here’s the thing about blind spots: they are, by definition, difficult for us to see—we’re blind to them! No matter how much we want to consider our blind spots, we really can’t do it alone. Our aim with this series is to gain the insight of those who are able to see so that they can come alongside us and help us identify and humbly repent of the sins we might be blindly entertaining.
    In today’s episode, we’re talking about the blind spot of unforgiveness with my friend Vaneetha Risner. Vaneetha’s story is an incredible testament to the power of looking to the grace of God to enable us to forgive unimaginably difficult offenses. We pray this conversation encourages you to lean on the Lord for the strength to forgive, even when it’s difficult.
     
    DISCUSSION QUESTIONS
    What has it looked like for you to bear the burden of unforgiveness in your life? What happens in us when we refuse to forgive? What does God do in us when we do forgive? How, specifically, does the gospel compel you to forgive?  How might you lean into God’s help as you seek to forgive others? What might you do or implement based on what you learned in this week’s episode?

    Sex and Sexuality with Rachel Gilson

    Sex and Sexuality with Rachel Gilson

    Today we’re tackling the topic of sex and sexuality with Rachel Gilson. Rachel lives in the Boston metro area, working for Cru on the leadership team for theological development and culture. She has a Master of Divinity from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. She’s the author of Born Again This Way: Coming Out, Coming to Faith, and What Comes Next, and her writing has been featured in Christianity Today, The Gospel Coalition, and Desiring God, among other places. 
    We know the nature of today’s topic is heavy. If you have questions or you need to process after listening, please take time to send a text to a friend in your local church. We are praying the Lord will use this conversation to cause you to move towards his Word, to cry out to him in prayer, and to walk in confession with women in your local church body. 


    DISCUSSION QUESTIONS
    What is God’s purpose and design for sexuality?  In the midst of your sin and your failings, how does it encourage you to remember what God’s heart and posture is toward you? Do you struggle to believe that Jesus is better than the sin you are drawn toward? What verses might help you to remember Christ’s worth and goodness? Consider memorizing these. Is there an area that Rachel mentioned—prayer, gentleness, truth, grace, Bible study—that you want to grow in? Who could you reach out to to help you with this? What might you do or implement based on what you learned in this week’s episode?
