    Restoration House featuring Kennesha Buycks

    If you feel like you are wrestling with comparison, the pain of brokenness in your life, or needing inspiration for how to cultivate a kingdom minded home, you’ll find encouragement in this episode.
     
    Kennesha Buycks lays out all the pain points that have pointed her back to restoration in Jesus. This also birthed the social space and newly released book, Restoration House. Kennesha desires to pull your heart and your home toward God’s peace and toward a welcoming of the Holy Spirit. 
    We get vulnerable pretty fast in this episode and cover topics like numbing pain with alcohol, the need of a father, the Enneagram, and God given desires that don’t look like they will ever come to fruition. 
     
    Kennesha's book, Restoration House will get much praise from me this episode but don’t mistake this for an endorsement for frivolity or a focus on making our earthly spaces our idols. I’m a champion of the book Restoration House. Not a fan. The difference is, the zeal I have for this book comes from it’s goal: it’s drawn me closer to Jesus.
     
     If this is your first time listening, I absolutely believe you’ll enjoy my time with Kennesha today. And I encourage you to subscribe to the podcast.

    Sister, Walk in Truth featuring Chrystan Ferrell

    Sister, Walk in Truth featuring Chrystan Ferrell

    My friend Chrystan Ferrell walks us through her journey of coming to Christ. Like the real moment, not the outside circle moment where you know who Jesus is and you know about scripture. The REAL life-changing relationship with Jesus was birthed in Chrystan’s life after lots of chasing after fun that ended in destruction. She talks about the struggle as a single parent and I love how she defines the brokenness of sin yet the blessing that God continues to place in her life.
    Chrystan poured her heart into the book Sister, Walk in Truth because she believes there’s a tangible hope you can have in Jesus. If you’re seeking for hope that doesn’t fade, consider buying a copy of the book to dive deeper into the truths that Gods word has in store for you.

    How the FOG was Lifted with Lindsey Hale

    How the FOG was Lifted with Lindsey Hale

    Episode 75: If you struggle to understand where you are in life and why, Lindsey’s story can point you to God’s sovereign plan and his perfect timing that’s bigger than all of us. My guest and new true friend Lindsey Hale talks about a time in her life where what looked like a blessing to most of the world, was a surprising point of grief and surrender of self. After 13 years of raising her kids, Lindsey unexpectedly found herself pregnant again creating a gap of 9 years between her last baby and this new one.We talk candidly about what it looks like when life becomes unexpected and God clearly says, “Here’s a new blessing in your life that you did not ask for.”
    It truly was a joy to chat with Lindsey and you’ll love hearing the irony of how a crappy experience in a therapy session actually led her to walking in true purpose that lifted the FOG in her life. Also, if you love the Enneagram like I do, all of you Enneagram 8’s will likely relate to Lindsey’s feelings of boldness were misinterpreted as rebellion as a child. 
    Friend, you absolutely want to get connected with Lindsey Hale.
    Grab a copy of her book, Lifted: How to ditch fear obligation and guilt. and live your best life.

    Hello Courageous - Finding Courage from the brokenness Sexual Abuse and Dysfunctional Thinking featuring Melissa Scott

    Hello Courageous - Finding Courage from the brokenness Sexual Abuse and Dysfunctional Thinking featuring Melissa Scott

    Your gonna tap into your own personal reason to be courageous today. Melissa Scott has had a tumultuous life. From horrific sexual abuse as a child to a cycle of repeated abuse in relationships, Melissa hit rock bottom, seeking more for her life. Even though she was able to see healthy relationships and witness to God’s power around her, Melissa felt very much on the outside of the ability to achieve an actual and real relationship with Jesus. You’ll be encouraged to hear how she found healing moments through true forgiveness, therapy, and crying out to Jesus in her car. 
     
    Please hang on toward the end of our conversation to receive the ultimate lesson you can gain from Melissa when we talk about grace and how Melissa gained supernatural freedom in her life from her hurts and her continued hurt because of the gift of Grace that God has given her and gifted her! 
     
    And we talk about two of Melissa’s passions, her role as a mom and the love she has for transformation from negative thinking to a confident attitude. 
     
    If you value your role as a parent and what that means when it comes to supplying your children (and yourself!) with the ability to have a healthy, positive mindset, you’ll want to hear Melissa’s discovery of powerful, Biblically-based, scientifically proven mindset shift. 
     
    I’m excited to share this conversation to you and I hope if this is your first time listening, welcome! I know you’ll gain some hope and freedom from my time with Melissa today. And I encourage you to subscribe to the podcast.

    Overcoming a Critical Spirit featuring Shannon Kay McCoy

    Overcoming a Critical Spirit featuring Shannon Kay McCoy

    In Episode 73, we talk candidly about 4 ways a critical spirit can take root in your everyday life. In fact, I share a few of my own struggles in my marriage and in my actions where I wrestle with a spirit of criticism. Shannon Kay McCoy is a biblical counselor and new friend and helps us walk through this spirit of criticism that we can easily fall into or rationalize. 
     
    This important conversation also evolved into trying to define terms like self-love & self-care. We were both seeking to pin down where self-love could be Bibilcal and where is it outright sin. I was so glad for the healthy tension created in our conversation and how it sparked lots of questions to bring to the Lord.

     
    Did you have a healthy dose of conviction when Shannon mentioned the four ways we can act with a critical spirit?
    I hope, like me, you’ll be comforted by the scriptures mentioned and you’ll see the freedom God wants for you from actions that are in opposition to His holiness.
    Do you feel the tug of the Lord gently reminding you that you don’t need to control everything? Do you overshoot self-care into unholy self-love? It’s truly a Constantly Under Construction process that requires leaning on the Lord continually.
