    What We Get Wrong About Modesty

    What We Get Wrong About Modesty

    Modesty is an important and tricky topic within our church today, and as women, we are told so many different things. Most importantly, we should all remember that we are made in the image of God and that He made us beautiful. In this episode of God Hears Her, Eryn and Elisa talk through what we get wrong about modesty, while providing thoughtful insights on celebrating our femininity and positive ways to express ourselves. 
     
    Notes and Quotes: 
    Self-expression vs. being-accepted-expression. “I can’t look a certain way because I am responsible for how people respond to how I look.” “When we are immodest, shame creeps up.” “What is the motivation in your heart for why you wear what you wear?” “I don't need to worry about everyone else’s response. How am I responding to those less presentable parts of myself?” “How am I seeing myself in God’s image?” “Our femininity is something to celebrate.” “That is what modesty is: both appreciation and care.” “The desire to be seen and accepted is very normal.” “We were made to be seen.”

    The Truth About Human Trafficking (with Heather McGannon)

    The Truth About Human Trafficking (with Heather McGannon)

    (Warning: Sensitive and potentially triggering content) On this episode of God Hears Her, Eryn and Elisa talk about a topic that most people don’t want to believe exists, even if they know it does: human trafficking. While we don’t want to believe that it’s happening around us, we need to recognize that it is and do whatever we can to spread awareness and protect the most vulnerable. Heather McGannon, who is the West Michigan Program Coordinator at the Michigan Abolitionist Project, joins Eryn and Elisa to discuss the truth about human trafficking.
     
    About Our Guest:
    Heather McGannon is the West Michigan Program Coordinator at the Michigan Abolitionist Project (MAP), an organization passionate about working to prevent and end human trafficking in Michigan and beyond through education and collaboration. Before her time at MAP, she mentored college students, helping them navigate big questions to prepare them for life. Heather’s never met a stranger, and her smile and laugh make anyone feel at home. She’s been married to Geoff for over a decade and has two boys.
     
    Notes and Quotes:
    “Human trafficking is essentially modern-day slavery: labor or sex trafficking.” “1 in 4 women have been abused.”  “Just believe them. Most abuse survivors are telling the truth.” “It takes relationship for any of these stories. They are blinded. It is all they have ever known.” “Trafficking happens through force, fraud, or coercion.” “In the United States, we see it as women who are selling themselves. And many times they were being groomed and forced into it.” “One of the biggest things we can do as human beings is to become aware.” What to look for: an older boyfriend or father figure, brandings (tattoo of a barcode), evidence of someone being controlled, distancing/isolating themselves, notice a lot of absences/kids are gone for the weekends. “Ask the question,  ‘Are you okay?’” “It thrives in the darkness, so we need to bring it more into the light.”

    Loneliness

    Loneliness

    We’ve all felt lonely at one point or another in our lives. In many different situations or areas of our lives we may feel an overwhelming sense of loneliness. On this episode of God Hears Her, hosts Eryn Eddy and Elisa Morgan talk about different types of loneliness and even share their own stories of feeling lonely. 
     
    Notes and Quotes: 
    “I think you can be surrounded by people and affirmation and celebration and all of that and still feel lonely.”  “A recent survey found that almost half of Americans feel alone. Nearly 50% feel lonely, left-out, isolated, or lack companionship. The number of friends people report today is one or none, whereas 20 years ago people could name on average four close relationships.” Six Types of Loneliness according to Elisa: Emotional: feeling like nobody really loves you Relational: feeling like nobody really knows the real you Vocational: feeling like life has no meaning and no one really cares if you’re here or not Spiritual: feeling literally alone and/or apart or cut off from God Physical: no one to share the “alone” with; having to do things alone Situational: experience of not being included “God gives an affirmation towards each of those kinds of loneliness.” Affirmations: Emotional: God gives a promise that He loves us. Relational: God gives His perception. He says, “I know you because I made you.” Vocational: God gives a purpose. He says, “I know the plans I have for you.” Spiritual: God gives His presence. He says, “I will be with you.” Physical: God gives His provision. He says, “I will provide for you.” Situational: God gives His perspective. He says, “I’ll use all things for your good and My purposes.” “Lament your loneliness, feel it.” “In feeling lonely, we have an opportunity to experience vulnerability in something we would not normally do.”

    Becoming a Woman with Moxie (with Julie Richardson)

    Becoming a Woman with Moxie (with Julie Richardson)

    Who do you think of when you hear the word moxie? Who do you know that is courageous and determined? A close friend? Your mom? A mentor? On this episode of God Hears Her, Eryn and Elisa talk with Julie Richardson, a woman who learned courage and determination from her mom and from facing unforeseen personal struggles.

    Notes and Quotes:
    “I was seeking the world’s happiness, and as I was doing those things I started to not hear God’s voice as much; His voice got softer and softer.” “I really got everything I was hoping for with the happiness factor. And I wasn’t happy. I didn’t feel fulfilled.” “God placed a couple people in my path. And they were ‘Jesus’ to me.” “You can look at your life as if it’s a home, and have you given God every room of your life?” (Anne Graham Lotz) “You have 100% of the Holy Spirit in your life, but does the Holy Spirit have 100% of you?” Moxie means determination and courage. “Your grief and joy can coexist at the same time.” “Following God, surrendering, doesn’t always mean we get what we want.”

    How to Live a Tech-Wise Life (with Amy Crouch)

    How to Live a Tech-Wise Life (with Amy Crouch)

    Have you ever thought about how much time you spend on technology? How often do you pick up your phone throughout the day? Do you find yourself using it as a constant escape? On this episode of God Hears Her, Elisa and Eryn talk to Amy Crouch about being wise with how much time we spend on technology. Listen for some great practical advice from Amy.
    About Our Guest:
    Amy Crouch is the author of My Tech-Wise Life and attends Cornell University studying linguistics, English, and anything else she can fit into her schedule. Her book is a follow-up to her father’s book, The Tech-Wise Family by Andy Crouch, and she describes what it’s like to grow up in a family that takes a disciplined approach to technology as well as offers helpful hints for others. Amy loves to cook, climb mountains, and chat about books.
    Notes and Quotes:
    “We took a sabbath once a week from work, but also screens.” “My parents were always really intentional in saying to me, ‘This is why we have made these shared commitments.’” “Real life has to be difficult. If it is not difficult, it’s not real life.” “Another question to ask ourselves is ‘What am I escaping, and why?’” “Ask yourself, Is social media making it harder for you to be content?” “Every time I survive distraction, I am reminded that it doesn’t have power over me.” “Technology is really good at shaping our habits.” Baby steps: Don’t beat yourself up, start and end your days without screens, leave your phone out of the bedroom, find something to take the place of technology.

wonderfullyLoved ,

God hears ME too :)

I came across these ladies randomly (well nothing is random, it’s God) and was dealing with a lot of shame and feeling guilty about my past. I felt like God was mad at me or didn’t want to talk to me. I listened to their podcast about how your past doesn’t define you and you’re never too far gone for God and it really changed my heart. I’ve been listening to more and more on my walks and I’m the mornings getting ready. Absolutely love the rawness of the conversations and the hope it gives women 💛

clhoagland ,

There is just so much!!!

I just happened to see on Facebook an ad for this podcast about an episode about toxic people. After that episode I started listening to the very beginning and am just overwhelmed and how much GREAT meat to minister to women of all ages.

God hears Her

Thank you for these episodes. I’m a 91 yr old Great-grandma and your podcasts show me my life journey in a different light. I know the Lord has been with me since the age of 13 but until hearing your stories I didn’t really appreciate how the Holy Spirit has been there for all of us if we just listen for His voice and follow our Lord’s directions. I’ll be praying and following your Pocasts.

Thank you for sharing these podcasts as I find them so supporting.
