Streaming from Passion City Church, the Grove Podcast is designed to encourage women to become ROOTED in the unfailing Word of God, to choose to FLOURISH where we’re planted, to walk in FREEDOM in Christ and truly live, and to offer our lives as SHADE to the people who intersect our paths in our city. The Grove Podcast is hosted by Shelley Giglio and other women of The Grove.
Emerge Unafraid :: Katherine Wolf
Today we’ve got a really sweet and timely encouragement from one of our best Grove Gals--Katherine Wolf. Katherine and her husband Jay have an incredible ministry called Hope Heals where they have taken their pain and turned it into a platform to speak to God’s faithfulness and sufficiency. Katherine and Jay had their lives turned upside down when Katherine suffered from a major brain stem stroke in 2008, shortly after giving birth to their first son. In the years since, she has been through countless therapies and procedures and while she still has many physical struggles, she and Jay and their family are committed to the mantra “hope while you cope” and have generously given their lives to spread that message. Today she’s sharing about how we choose to trust God in the face of the fear of the unknown and there's probably no one more equipped to do so. Check out hopeheals.com for more of her story as well as their books and resources.

Body Language :: Dr. Anita Phillips & Christine Caine
Today’s episode of the Grove Podcast was graciously given to us by Christine Caine and Dr. Anita Philips. In response to the recent rise in racial tensions stemming from the media coverage of injustice toward Black Americans, many necessary conversations have emerged among people of all color.
One of the most helpful conversations that we have observed is this one between Christine and Dr. Anita. It is raw and full of humility and grace. Dr. Anita helps white believers better understand the past and current realities of their black brothers and sisters, while giving helpful insight into the differences of our cultures and communities.
Christine Caine is a long-time friend of the Grove and is kind enough to come and preach and encourage us year after year. In addition to speaking and writing, she runs Propel Women as well as the A-21 Campaign with her husband Nick. Dr. Anita Phillips is a therapist, mental health advocate, life coach, and minister dedicated to encouraging, educating, and empowering communities. This conversation was recorded live on Instagram and is used with their permission.

This conversation is helpful, practical and encouraging, with something for everyone--from the lifelong Christian to the brand new believer.
