I help exmo Christian Women Build Self-worth through Biblical Truths.

Are you ready to go on a Jesus Journey? You’re invited!
I know what it is like to have so many questions about the Christian faith. If you are like me, you may have some religious baggage that left you questioning your self-worth in a big way.

How do I raise my kids with faith when I’m still trying to figure it out? Where can I find a community I can trust? Why does every church feel like culture shock? Will I ever know Jesus?
Is Faith something meant for other people?

It’s just so overwhelming.
And the world keeps telling you you are enough- all on your own, you are enough.
…but you don’t feel like it. In fact, you question your self-worth at every opportunity.

Friend, I have been there!
And here is a secret- without God, you will never be enough. And that is an amazing thing. Keep reading…
At times, I was an ex-Mormon, agnostic, a Sunday Christian, want-to-be Buddhist, and a New Age follower, but God had very different plans for me. The whole time, I was living in one very big lie- that I was in charge of my own enoughness and my works would save me and my life.
Don’t get me wrong, I am all about self-help and personal development, but as a born-again, fully transformed Christian, I learned there is the world’s way, and there is God’s way.

It took me 20 years after leaving the Mormon church to finally meet God, and when I did, I will never be the same.
To quote CS Lewis, ”The more we get ourselves out of the way and let Him take us over, the more truly ourselves we become.” Mere Christianity.
You are enough not because of what you have done but because of what He has done, and He lives through you.

We are going to dive into Bible truths explained just for Exmos and New Believer mamas so you never have to feel overwhelmed or question your compass or self-worth again.
We talk about social pressures, family struggles, basic Christian beliefs, and God’s amazing grace for you.
This is the place for theology, apologetics, and wisdom from His word that will shape your life, your confidence, and yes, your feeling of enough.

Friend, you are in the right place!
xoxo, Shelby

ABOUT YOUR HOST
Finding Faith Above is hosted by Shelby Hohsfield. Shelby grew up in a mixed-faith home and attended the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormon or LDS) church until she was 18. As most people do when they leave the church, 85% actually, Shelby left God altogether when she left the LDS church. It wasn’t until she was pregnant with her son that God was made evident to her.
From there sparked a quest to FIND FAITH, a fleeting idea that challenged her at every step.
After trying all matters of religion for years, she was struck one night when some big things literally brought her to her knees- When things got super hard, it was the surrender to the one true God that changed everything about Shelby’s life, belief, and understanding of this universe we live in.
After a 20-year journey after leaving the church, she finally found faith above.
As Jesus asked us to do, Shelby now dedicates herself to the great commission- telling the world the good news of Jesus.

    122. Who is Jesus, Really?? 10 Things We Should Know About Christ

    122. Who is Jesus, Really?? 10 Things We Should Know About Christ

    Ready to finally know how to navigate what you actually believe? Christian Life Mentorship for Ex-Mormon Women at Finding Faith Above
    https://findingfaithabove.com/coaching
    When people are starting to question faith in any capacity, but more so with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I never suggest just looking into the church. Trying to prove the falsehood or truth of the church can lead to some weird and very emotional places. 
    Instead, I say, go on a Jesus Journey. We need to get to know Him above all else. 
    He is the Word
    He is With God
    He is God
    He was in the beginning 
    He is the creator of all things- Nothing was made that was made
    He is the Light of Men
    Fulfiller of prophecy
    Giver of light and life
    The one to make us children of God
    Glory and the Giver of Grace

    121. Why Do My Prayers Not Get Answered?

    Ready to finally know how to navigate what you actually believe? Christian Life Mentorship for Ex-Mormon Women at Finding Faith Above
    https://findingfaithabove.com/coaching
    Has prayer become a ritual? Is it something we do and say the things we need to say and go through the motions?
    But let me ask- are you talking to God? Really talking to Him? 
    Today, we are asking the question, Why sometimes does it feel like my prayers are not being answered? 
    We have to ask…
    Do we have faith that He will work?
    Are we asking for worldly gain or God’s Kingdom?
    Are we asking with forgiveness and love in our hearts?
    Are we giving God the Glory?

This podcast will help you FIND AND LOVE God after leaving the LDS church

I was raised LDS, a religion that impacts every area of life, and the decision to leave was brutal. Even though I was 100% confident the church was based on lies, stepping away from my community and lifelong routines was challenging. It took years of ups and downs to develop a relationship with God- man I wish I had this podcast back then! I’m still working on understanding the Bible and it’s concepts that LDS leadership skewed. This podcast has been helpful, I especially appreciate the episodes that dive into lds doctorine vs Bible based doctorine. Keep them coming please, I appreciate your work! ❤️
