    Raise the Volume on Deliverance: Michele Vrabel's "Old School" Story S:4 E: 53

    Raise the Volume on Deliverance: Michele Vrabel's "Old School" Story S:4 E: 53

    Adi and Michelle Vrabel  talk about how the concept of amplifying a voice can start with your own inner work and eventually become a journey of deliverance for others. We talk about the challenges of writing a story that includes really traumatic events and we discuss the journey of becoming a podcaster! It’s never too late to learn something new! 

    Michele Vrabel is an expert bean counter by day. Her super powers and side hustles include pastry chef and author in training. Her writing coach, Bob Goff, says she has “sass”, which she deploys regularly. She is nearing the finish line with her first book…Butterfly Stitches…and according to her King apparently has several others in her.

    Michele is available and lives in Mesa, Arizona. She has a daughter in college who lives with her and is lovingly known as Peanut. She is a passionate traveler, foodie, smart alec and lover of her King Jesus.

    Chasing Jesus: A Message for the Well Intentioned, but Uninformed by Kristen Brock

    Chasing Jesus: A Message for the Well Intentioned, but Uninformed by Kristen Brock

    Kristen Brock shares from her blog posts in 2020 with a call to action to become more informed. This episode or Kristen's new podcast is a great place to start.




    Kristen runs Kiongozi Consulting, an LLC that trains people and organizations in trauma-informed care. She is also the executive director of Friends of Ruwenzori a non-profit that supports an NGO in Uganda. Her lifelong commitment to advocating for and empowering underserved communities of all stripes has seen her work with communities including US Veterans, families living under the poverty line, at-risk youth, and HIV+ communities in Africa. 

    Kristen believes that the church should be a place for healing, a place that stands for the oppressed and vulnerable, and should be the bedrock of justice.  She believes we can create a body of believers who don’t retraumatize and who understand how deeply we have hurt our brothers and sisters. 

    As a solo mom to three young men, Kristen added to her family by adopting through the foster system.   Hearing the call to establish a voice around trauma, race, adoption, and parenting — all grounded in her faith she is under the constant supervision of two exceptionally friendly dogs and two strong-willed cats. Kristen lives in Novato, California, and is a die-hard 49ers, Giants, and Warriors fan. While not doing “mom-dependent” study with her youngest or wrangling one of many home improvement projects, Kristen can be found whipping up some baked goods, working on a new podcast, or hiking in the warm Northern Californian hills.

    Kristen holds both a Bachelor of Science degree and a teaching credential from Wheaton College in Illinois, and a Master of Science from San Diego State University in Marriage and Family Counseling and is working toward a Masters in Theology and Social Justice at Northeastern Seminary.

    You can find her at www.kristenannette.com

    The reading is a combination of these two blogs. https://kristenannette.com/nobody-thinks-they-are-a-racist/ https://kristenannette.com/the-least-of-these 



    Sign up to follow Kristen’s fledgling podcast: Jesus, Justice and Mercy: A podcast where we discuss race, grace, and faith, offering hope for the 21st-century church. A place where social justice meets theology

Casey Rippy ,

Great listen even if you’re not Christian

I must admit that I am very apprehensive to listen to most podcasts that have a religious theme, but this podcast is a really great listen even if you’re not Christian. Adrea is a fantastic host who brings in great guests to discuss hard subjects to talk about. There’s a great flow to the show and each episode gives the listener great personal stories to help them reflect on their own personal journey. Would highly recommend to Christian’s and non-Christian’s alike.

Honest and encouraging!

Adi thoughtfully connects with her guests and her listeners. Listening always feels like being in conversation with an old friend!
