An awesome tool to Dig Deeper!

I have listened to the Activate podcast since it started and always look forward to it each week. So thankful for this tool to dig deeper into my faith throughout the week and not just hear the sermon on Sunday but to really think about how that teaching can be applied to my life. Thank you Pastor Christian and Pastor Brandon and all of JCI for always striving to be a church with such a passion for spiritual growth.

Hope & Healing

40 days ago I experienced an event in my life that brought me to my knees. I wish I had the time and finances for 99 sessions of therapy. Don’t we all? Christian and Brandon’s discussions have been that for me through Activate. Have you ever sat in church and felt God was telling you exactly what you needed to hear that day? That has been my experience through Activate. The Lord seems to tell me exactly what I need to hear through this podcast. I listened to the 99th episode this morning and I’m so thankful for this free therapy. I take notes in the notes section on my phone when Christian recommends a book, and have been able to go to the library and further my healing. I’ve put into practice numerous things Christian has suggested and I am so much further along in my healing process because of this resource! As a busy full time working single mom who doesn’t have a lot of free time, I’m grateful for this podcast. It’s helped me immensely! Looking forward to podcast #100 next week!
