Know Him As Healer featuring Gabby Chicoine
Hello friends!! It brings us so much JOY to have our dear friend and sister Gabby on the show today to discuss how Good, Faithful, and True the Lord is even in the midst of many trials and adversities. May you be encouraged and comforted to know that God is our Great Healer and while we might not always experience that on this side of heaven, we know that those who are in Jesus have been healed from the great enemy of sin and death so that even the grave cannot hold us down.

Should You Stop Spending Time With God?
When you close your eyes and imagine what it looks like to spend time with the Lord, what comes to mind? Are you at church? In your living room reading the Bible? Walking in nature marveling at creation? Singing songs of praise? Whatever your expression of spending quality time with God may look like, today’s episode seeks to upset some notions on what it truly means to “spend time with God” and also attempt to answer whether it’s even necessary to do so or not. As always, we are glad you are here, and may God richly bless you!

Thoughts & Prayers - Demystifying Spiritual Gifts
Today's episode is particularly exciting because we are introducing a new segment on the show called Thoughts & Prayers where we ponder audience-provided topics and hold hands in prayer before the Lord. These shorter-form episodes are inspired by emails, direct messages, and comments submitted by all you beautiful people tuning in. On occasion, when we aren't discussing various topics (like Spiritual Gifts) we will devote entire shows to praying specifically for your individual requests in succession. We will accomplish this while also being careful to not use last names or particular information that may give away the identities of those who are entrusting us to pray for them. If you have a "Thought" or "Prayer" you'd like to submit to us, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or message us on Instagram at @asformeandmyhousepodcast The Lord bless you and keep you!
New Year Same You
Happy 2023 to the AFM+MH family! We missed you all so much and could hardly wait to be back with you. It is our hope that today's show serves as a refreshing encouragement and reminder that regardless of where you are on your New Year's resolution journey, you can find rest, peace, and assurance in Christ Jesus as your foundation for all things. While healthy lifestyle changes are good and noble pursuits, we must remind ourselves that our identity as followers of Jesus is found in knowing Him in relationship, and not in how many books we read or the calories we burn. God redeems us THEN makes us righteous, and then enables us to walk in the good works he has prepared for us. Maybe this is the year to actually stop striving for change by your own willpower and simply surrender to the Holy Spirit to work in and through you for His purposes. May He make that known to you this year.
