Fearless and Free was birthed during the Covid-19 season of lockdowns and loss, when so much of the world was experiencing dysfunction. The focus of news and conversation was on illness instead of wellness. Dana was living in London in lockdown. Laura in Houston. Together they experienced the world’s heart wounds being exposed and on display. Even in the church, people were giving their wounds a voice. Having experienced inner healing themselves they knew there was more to share.

Thats the good news! We don’t have to stay bound to those places of fear and loss. As an inner healing minister, author and Biblical teacher, Dana is passionate to empower others to overcome obstacles in their own hearts and relationships to bring freedom and healing. This is not behavior modification but healing from the heart that brings wholeness and restores alignment with your true purpose in Christ.

In this new season at Fearless and Free, we seek to empower you as an integral part of the body of Christ to move into the next level of power and authority, using your voice to bring healing and hope to your sphere of influence.

    Who Would Jesus Vote For?

    Who Would Jesus Vote For?

    As America prepares for another presidential election, the tensions are growing. Over the last
    few elections, the political division in America has grown to a level of aggressive and violent
    demonstration. Each party becoming more toxic and polarizing, condemning the other. Like a
    bad divorce, each is blaming and accusing the other for all the problems, with neither taking full
    accountability for their own part or seeking to work in the best interest of the whole family.

    Within the Church, politics divide, with Christians judging, condemning, and shaming brothers
    and sisters in Christ who do not see eye to eye. If Jesus was physically present in America
    today, what would He say about Politics? Who would He say to vote for? What would He say to
    you?

    In this episode, we look at politics and Christianity in America through the lens of Scripture
    and Jesus own words…seeking to answer the questions-

    - What is the difference between politics and government?
     
    - What is the currency of the Kingdom of God?
     
    - What is my part?
     

    In order to be part of the solution we have to have our hearts rightly aligned with God. That
    comes from prayer, being in His word, and surrendering to His will and timing, not ours. We
    have to seek His heart for our cities, countries and world.

    If we want to partner in the move of God in this hour, we have to prepare our hearts to receive it
    and carry the weighty responsibility. Now is the time for healing the heart of the church to
    find healing and wholeness for our own hearts, and to move forward fearless and free, to be
    all He has created the body of Christ to be.

    Are You a Fan, Follower, or in Fellowship with Jesus?

    Are You a Fan, Follower, or in Fellowship with Jesus?

    In a world of celebrities, superstars, entertainers and influencers we can get confused on what it means to be a Christian. Is it a mob of fans lined up for tickets to the latest worship experience?  Is it a crowd of people pushing to get a good seat in the megachurch? Is it following the big name preacher, prophetic speaker, or theological giant?
     
    Let’s explore together.
     
    What is a Jesus Fan?
    Aren't we to be Jesus Followers?
    What does it mean to be in fellowship with Him?
     
    The Kingdom of God is at hand.  The Lord Himself is preparing the people of God for the return of Christ.  It is time for the Bride to be dressed and ready, eagerly and expectant for her bridegroom. 
     
    Our churches today are filled with people who know about Jesus, and cheer for HIm, but don't really know Him.  
    Only those fully surrendered to the presence of God will transform lives and impact communities. As one who has been a sinner, fan, follower and now in fellowship, I can testify that no one is too far from Him. The one who has been forgiven much loves much. Luke 7:41-47
     
    If we want to partner in the move of God in this hour, we have to prepare our hearts to receive it and carry the weighty responsibility.  Now is the time for healing the heart of the church to move forward fearless and free, to be all He has created us to be.

    The Sum is Greater than its Parts

    The Sum is Greater than its Parts

    As a science major in college and graduate school, I am very familiar with dissection.  In order to understand the function of the human body, we look at the parts.  We study it in sections.  We would focus on the head and neck, then the chest,  the organs, blood flow, nervous system…you get the idea.  We would take a very detailed look at a body part to understand how it is structured.  But to fully understand we had to see how it connected to the whole body and the function it played overall. 
    The kingdom of God is referred to as the body of Christ.  It is not a building.  Or a denomination.  It is the people of God that are the temple of God, the place where He has chosen to dwell. 
    What does the Bible say about the body of Christ?
    Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.  Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many.  1 Corinthians 12:12-14
    We are one body, of many parts.
    United in Christ
    Baptized by one Spirit
    Jews, Gentiles, slaves and free all one in Christ
     
    If that is true, then why are we so divided?
    Join Dana in this look at the dissection happening the body of Christ and discover the key to moving as one body. If we want to partner in the move of God in this hour, we have to prepare our hearts to receive it and be fully connected to the heart of God.  Now is the time for healing the heart of the church so we can move forward as one body fearless and free, to be all He has created the Church to be.

    Healing the Heart of the Church

    Healing the Heart of the Church

     Welcome to a new season of  Fearless and Free podcast, where we take a holistic, spirit-soul-body approach to healing and wholeness. I am your host Dana Grindal.
    If you missed the last episode you missed a big announcement. Laura moving into new season with her book and movie project.  If you missed it please go back and listen.  We will have her on from time to time to share updates so we can all cheer her on in the calling the Lord has given her in this season.
    I am excited to continue on this podcast journey with you!
    What you can expect going forward…
    Continue to have a safe place to meet on behalf of your own spiritual health
    Continue to have a place to receive resources for healing and reconciliation of your own identity, purpose and place in the body of Christ.
    Continue to have expert guest testimonies and teachings.
    Continue to experience empowerment to apply key principles to walk out your calling and impact your sphere of influence with the light and life of Christ. 
    As I have prayed about this podcast and what the Lord has for us, He has been confirming many things for us to discuss in relation to our place in the body of Christ.  This is an important time in the history of the church, especially in America.  We are in a spiritual war for the heart and soul of our nation. 
    Among Christians there is a battle over politics
    A battle over sexual identity
    A battle for our children
    A battle over race
    So what can we do?
     
    As Christians we have an command to pray for those in authority over us
     I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers,) intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants all people to be saved) and to come to a knowledge of the truth
     
    We have a command to love the Lord God with all our heart, soul. mind and strength
    He answered, “‘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
     
    We have a command to love our neighbor as ourself.
    and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” Luke 10:27
     
    We have a command to the great Commision
    Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. Matthew 28:18-20
     
    We have a command to unity in the body with Christ Jesus as the Head.
    As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. 2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. 3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit,just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.    Ephesians 4:1-6
     
    We have a command to put on the full armor and fight the right enemy.
    Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms 
     Ephesians 6:10-12
     
    Hear what the Spirit says to the churches. Revelation 2-3
    Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give that person a white stone with a new name written on it, known on
