    045: Standing Strong in Every Situation with Alli Worthington | The Living Room

    “God is calling the women of this generation to partner with Him in bringing about His purposes!”

    In this episode, Alli Worthington shares from her book, Standing Strong: A Woman's Guide to Overcoming Adversity and Living with Confidence, about partnering with God in accomplishing His purposes. 

    Through her own journey of learning to hear God's voice and experiencing the pain of disobedience as well as the joy of following His leading, Alli has learned to trust God in the unknown and step out in obedience and faith.



    Do you hear God's whisper? God is calling you to stand strong because you are meant for more, my friend! It's not about the kind of work He calls you to or how impressive or small it may seem, because whatever He calls us to is Kingdom work.

    044: Letting God Heal Your Marriage with Lara Casey | The Living Room

    044: Letting God Heal Your Marriage with Lara Casey | The Living Room

    "No marriage is easy or perfect, but every marriage is worth fighting for!”

    In this episode, Lara Casey, the CEO of Cultivate What Happens, shares her personal marriage journey. Lara and her Jewish, military husband struggled for many years before God not only answered her prayer for a shared faith, but overtime He also healed the pain from all the earlier hurt and rekindled their love for each other.



    When it seemed easier to give up, Lara relied on her faith and pressed in deeper to God. He used Lara as well as a matrix of relationships and the power of His Word to lead her husband into a relationship with Him.



    I also share the story of God's healing in my marriage.



    If you are struggling in your marriage or are married to an unbeliever, God wants to encourage you today! It was when Lara and I came to the end of ourselves that God was able to create a beautiful masterpiece out of all of the broken pieces. He can do that for you too!

    Important Takeaways from Show



    * There is no such thing as an easy or perfect marriage

    * Every time an argument arises choose to pray first

    * When we recognize how much God has forgiven us, we can easier forgive our spouse

    * Don't allow someone else's lack of faith to hold you back from practicing your faith

    * Any exposure to Scripture is powerful (Isaiah 55:11)

    * You don't have to lure others to faith or pretend your life is perfect, but rather live out your real faith in front of them

    * "What if God's primary intent for your marriage isn't to make you happy . . . but holy?" ~ Gary Thomas Sacred Marriage

    * The time between your hurt and your miracle is an opportunity to practice faith

    * Seek God rather than a perfect marriage and trust Him with the outcome

    * Our purity and reverence for God and our respect and love for our spouse can draw our spouse to God (1 Peter 3:1)

    * Rather than resent an unbelieving spouse, ask God to change your heart so you can present the sweetness of Christ

    * Humility is one of the strongest displays of Christ to others

    * You cannot change your spouse's heart, only God can

    * Spend time with Christ and allow His aroma to spread to your spouse

    * Trials are what ground your faith and strengthen your words

    * A "gentle and quiet spirit" is one that is free from fear (1 Peter 3:4)

    * Renew your commitment to your marriage (no matter what!)

    * Get a big-picture mindset and commit to a long-term marriage

    * Don't lose sight of the temporary nature of struggles and the powerful hand of God to change things in His timing

    * Submit your heart to God and ask Him to give you a new love for your spouse

    * Anchor your relationship by praying together often





    Wives, in the same way submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, when they see the purity and reverence of your lives. Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.

    043: Jesus Over Everything with Lisa Whittle | The Living Room

    043: Jesus Over Everything with Lisa Whittle | The Living Room

    “God is either everything or nothing!”

    Have you ever felt torn between loving Jesus and loving yourself, wanting to live for Him but still doing things your own way?



    In this episode, Lisa Whittle shares from her newest book, Jesus Over Everything: Uncomplicating the Daily Struggle to Put Jesus First about her personal struggle to daily keep Jesus number one and how He changed her perspective.



    We all have different distractions and things we run to in difficult times, but Jesus wants to deliver us from it all. It is not until we relinquish our right to live our own way that we truly discover freedom and the life we were created to live.

    { USE PLAYER BAR @ TOP OF PAGE to listen to show, subscribe and share }



    Important Takeaways from Show



    * Deadly Overs: Our go-to behaviors that we think simplify our lives, but instead complicate things by making it all about us

    * Over-apologizing, over-explaining, over-indulging, and over-working are all examples of "deadly overs" that stand in the way of getting closer to Jesus

    * When we put Jesus over everything truly uncomplicates our lives

    * We will never be satisfied until Jesus is in His rightful place

    * Connecting with God through striving doesn't work

    * Evaluate if there is anything you are doing on a habitual level to escape from life and give it to Jesus

    * When God puts His finger on an area in your life, He will also give you the strength and grace to deal with it

    * Holiness over freedom - when we do not keep the guard rails of Scripture on our freedoms we begin to enslave ourselves, but in Christ we can experience true freedom

    * Jesus guides us into holiness because He knew that on the other side is pain and enslavement

    * "I run in the path of your commands for you have set my heart free" ~ Psalm 119:32

    * “Everything is permissible,” but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible,” but not everything builds up. ~ 1 Corinthians 10:23 

    * Whatever you are resisting letting go of the hardest is what you may need to relinquish to Jesus

    * True holiness leads to wholeness and everything God created us for

    * You will never regret giving more to Jesus





    For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. (Colossians 1:16-18)

    042: The Grace to Suffer Strong with Katherine Wolf | The Living Room

    “You can survive anything if you'll redefine everything...”

    Life rarely turns out the way we expect and it's not always easy to adjust when suffering redirects it all. In this episode, Katherine Wolf, discusses her newest book, Suffer Strong: How to Survive Anything by Redefining Everything.



    At age 26, Katherine suffered a massive brain stem stroke that nearly ended her life. During the long years of surgeries and relearning all basic life skills, Katherine and her husband, Jay, learned that God's grace is truly sufficient. As you look to Him, God will give you unexpected peace and even joy in the middle of your deepest trial.



    Maybe your life has taken an unexpected turn as well. God wants to help you pivot, persevere and overcome so that you can truly live the life you've been given!

    Important Takeaways from Show



    * Rather than holding on to what was, learn to embrace the new

    * Suffering can become a treasured gift that shapes your life in positive ways

    * Nothing can take away the peace, joy and all good things found in Christ (Psalm 84:11)

    * "Joy is the secret weapon of the Christian life" - GK Chesterton

    * We get to take our worries to the foot of the cross rather than live with them

    * Until we surrender our unmet expectations, we cannot receive the gifts that God has for us

    * Walking through suffering with joy and perseverance can be one of the greatest testimonies

    * Decide what voices you will allow to speak into your life (who will be your "soul board of directors"?)

    * Live with gratitude and seek to recognize the good in every situation

    * Determine to establish your hope in the Lord

    * True hope is a future promise lived out now

    * "Hope is believing in advance what will only make sense in reverse" ~ Philip Yancey

    * What is true about God in the light is still true in your darkest moments

    * Receiving suffering can be a big part of living a life worthy of your calling (Ephesians 4:1)

    * The greatest things that God has done are inside of you (2 Corinthians 4:17)

    * God is always doing something new

    * When someone else is suffering, less words can be the best words

    * A great marriage establishes true friendship and chooses to cheer one another on

    * God has given us everything we need to adapt, persevere and overcome (2 Peter 1:3)

    * Always trust that God is good and remember that He is able to redeem all things

    * True beauty is all about walking away from shame and discovering God's voice





    Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;  perseverance, character; and character, hope.  And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. ~Romans 5:3-5

    041: God Dreams & Becoming Brave with Tracey Mitchell | The Living Room

    041: God Dreams & Becoming Brave with Tracey Mitchell | The Living Room

    “If we allow our dreams to drive us, then we may miss where God is leading us!”

    In this episode, Tracey Mitchell shares from her book, Becoming Brave: How to Think Big, Dream Wildly, and Live Fear-Free. God has dreams and purposes for every one of our lives, not one more significant than another. He gifts us with unique skills and opportunities to make a difference, but His greatest purpose is always to draw us closer to Him.

    Tracey shares the joy of walking closely to her Savior and trusting Him to reroute her life when needed, to bring purpose in her trials, and to give her the bravery to stay faithful in her daily life as much as in the big moments.

    { USE PLAYER BAR @ TOP OF PAGE to listen to show, subscribe and share }



    Important Takeaways from Show



    * God wants to make us brave no matter what we're facing

    * Almost all prophetic children in the Bible came from barren wombs - John the Baptist, Samuel, Samson

    * It was not that God was withholding something from each woman. He was reserving something that was larger than what she could imagine for an appointed season

    * We have to learn how to be fruitful in what seems to be unfruitful seasons

    * What's in you will always come out in a moment of stress

    * When we're in the fire, we need to remind ourselves that everything we've believed is true and tell others of God's goodness

    * In times like our current situation, we need to let God teach us how to navigate a new "operating system"

    * Thinking big can mean trying something new or just taking a simple step of obedience to God's voice

    * We don't bring our dreams to God and ask Him to bless them, we allow heaven to send God's dream for us

    * Sometimes we are afraid to dream because of risk - fear of being disappointed

    * Don't let fear override the plan and purpose of God for your life

    * Believe God for more - but trust Him with the results

    * Joseph was willing to serve someone else's dream - we need to do the same

    * Just because my dream isn't coming true today doesn't mean it will never happen - it may be someone else's day

    * Quote: "I never doubted my ability to make things happen, but I never weighed out the cost to my joy"

    * Make sure the end result measures up and mirrors the purpose - was God glorified or was it all about us?

    * Tracey's Prayer: "Flay me open, Lord, and show me my motives"

    * When our motives are right before the Lord, we will experience joy. When we don't we'll be exhausted

    * Invite spiritual mentors to keep you accountable: Why are you doing this? What's the purpose behind it?

    * In this increasingly divided culture, we need to be gracious, reasonable women

    * Whenever I feel the need to insert my opinion in every subject, I'm probably walking in pride - Joanna

    * Lord, help us be brave and humble. Submitted to God and willing to dream His dreams





    I know that you can do all things;

    no purpose of yours can be thwarted. ~ Job 42:2

    040: Loving Jesus With All Your Heart with Christine Hoover | The Living Room

    040: Loving Jesus With All Your Heart with Christine Hoover | The Living Room

    “Where does your allegiance lie?”

    In this episode, pastor's wife and author, Christine Hoover, shares from her newest book, With All Your Heart: Living Joyfully Through Allegiance to King Jesus. After a difficult season of feeling grieved and starved for validation, God did a deep work in Christine's heart. She began to recognize false allegiances that were keeping her from experiencing the peace and joy of living with a whole-hearted devotion to Christ.



    It can be so easy to get caught up in self-reliance or seeking the approval of people and neglect our call to "seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness" (Matthew 6:33). But only Jesus deserves our allegiance and He alone satisfies!

    Important Takeaways from Show



    * The Kingdom of God is past, present and future

    * We look forward with anticipation to the Kingdom of God that is to come

    * The primary allegiance that pulls us away from Christ is self

    * "There is a throne in every kingdom of our heart" - Ray Stedman

    * We have to identify the false kings in our lives (anxiety, approval, comfort, etc..)

    * When there is bad fruit being produced in your life, trace it back to a false allegiance

    * When you recognize a false allegiance, repent and turn to Jesus

    * Our false allegiances affect others negatively as well

    * God will allow things to be shaken to reveal our weak places and give us the unshakable Kingdom of God

    * Until we determine that Christ is Lord of all, everything can be shaken

    * King Escape is the ruler of this modern age

    * Rather than escape into distraction, allow God the space to speak

    * "Loneliness is sometimes God's call to aloneness with us" Jeanne Mayo

    * Kingdom work is bringing our hearts under the rule and reign of Jesus

    * Rather than striving to do everything, take some time to wait and hear what God wants

    * "They also serve, who only stand and wait" - John Milton

    * The Kingdom of God is a corporate kingdom and is meant to be done together





    Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind. ~ Luke 10:27
