    Spiritual Apathy

    Spiritual Apathy

    Have you ever experienced times where you just didn’t feel like praying? Maybe you go through phases where reading your Bible is boring or you just don’t have the energy to read another devotional. God Hears Her hosts Elisa Morgan and Eryn Eddy have had those moments too. Join them in this conversation to talk about what spiritual apathy is and how we can overcome it on this episode of God Hears Her.
     
    Notes and Quotes: 
    Sometimes I don’t feel like praying, and don’t feel a desire or experience a drivenness into His spirit. There are times when the spiritual “blahs” take over.—Elisa When do the spiritual blahs hit us? The more I become secure in my circumstances.—Eryn I’m doing what I do,  then if I do a—“oh, God’s here”—my spiritual eyes open to something and suddenly that very moment which was a little apathetic becomes a “Pow! Wow!”—Elisa “Can I just see You today? Give me the eyes and ears to see You today.” I want to do that more, where I’m just recognizing the little things I see. I want to call it out when I see it versus let it go by me.—Eryn Even if he doesn’t do the things I hope for, the journey and intimacy of me expressing and being vulnerable and trusting prepares me either way for the response of what I’m hoping for.—Eryn When we open Scripture, we can open our spiritual ears and remind ourselves God is talking to me. What can I get out of this today?—Elisa

    Accepting the Diagnosis (with Ronda Barney)

    Accepting the Diagnosis (with Ronda Barney)

    In life we all get hit with unexpected news that brings change in one way or another. Sometimes the news is a diagnosis we weren’t expecting or an answer we’ve been waiting for. With life-changing news comes the surrendering of expectations and moments of grief. On this episode of God Hears Her, join Eryn Eddy and Elisa Morgan as they unpack what life looked like for Ronda Barney after she received an unexpected diagnosis.
     
    About Our Guest:
    Ronda Barney had just given birth to her first child when she was diagnosed with a potentially fatal illness. After the recommended treatment, she was completely healed until her immune system faced unknown challenges and her health decreased. 
    Ronda wants to share with you the insights and truths that she has learned in the trenches. This desire has led her to start the online community A Dose of Hope, write her book, Dear Susan, create The Beautiful Life Blueprint, and start the podcast Awaken to Hope. Her heart’s desire is to walk with you through your suffering, offer a safe place to process the pain, and help you find nuggets of hope that will give you the courage and strength to live fully alive.
     
    Notes and Quotes: 
    “God was so gracious, I felt like the right people showed up at the right time in the right spaces.” – Ronda Barney “I think we all have a storyline for how we want our life to play out. . . but I couldn’t make it better for myself.” – Ronda Barney “There are treasures that washed ashore that weren’t there before, and I had to find them.” – Ronda Barney “There are little joys to be found. . . It’s not all or nothing.” – Ronda Barney “My mission is to provide a space for women to connect in their pain.” – Ronda Barney “God sees our pain.” – Ronda Barney  “I was able to get from that moment to where I am now by letting go of the unknown future, and live for right now. Can you get through this moment? What is this moment about? God is holding every single moment.” – Ronda Barney

    Worth Following (with Dr. Jen Bennett)

    Worth Following (with Dr. Jen Bennett)

    Most of us spend a lot of time on social media. We mindlessly scroll through our feeds and spend time curating content for our friends and family. But how often do we share our faith on social media? What does it mean to be someone worth following? Dr. Jen Bennett is an expert on how to impact culture for Christ on social media. Join Dr. Bennett as she talks with hosts Elisa Morgan and Eryn Eddy about what it means to be worth following on this episode of God Hears Her.
     
    About Our Guest:
    Dr. Jen Bennett is a strategic communication professor at Indiana Wesleyan University, Jen equips college students to discover their voice, develop their expertise, and lead with influence to impact culture for Christ. She has coached various entrepreneurs, small business owners, ministries, organizations, and college students in social media, personal branding, marketing, and public relations. Jen was named as one of 61 Women in Digital You Should Be Following. In 2019 she was chosen as one of 55 social media influencers (out of 700 applicants) to attend #NASASocial for the Falcon Heavy Rocket Launch. She is also the author of the book #BeWorthFollowing: How to be Different and Influence People in a Crowded Social World. In April of 2021, Jen launched the She Impacts Culture podcast, a podcast for trailblazing, faith-based women who want to lead with influence and impact culture for Christ.
     
    Notes and Quotes: 
    What keeps us back from sharing things on social media is fear… that then keeps us from sharing the message that God wants us to share.—Dr. Jen Bennett God has given you a voice for a reason. God has given you your specific experiences and stories not to keep it to yourself but to encourage the lives of others. There is somebody out there who needs to hear what you have to say.—Dr. Jen Bennett Influence—the world is all about being a celebrity. But yet if you look through the pages of the Bible, God used the most unlikely people to influence this world. There is a big difference between worldly influence and kingdom influence. God is just looking for a willing heart. If your heart is open, He’s going to use you.—Dr. Jen Bennett Don’t measure your success by what you see. Many times in online communications and social media, you are impacting the lives of people that you don’t see. God works in the unseen moments.—Dr. Jen Bennett

Life Changing Podcast

I am so beyond grateful for this podcast. I needed to renew my faith in God and spend time with women who talk about God. This is exactly what I need in my life right now. I feel like this show touches on so many taboo subjects in Christian spaces and gives us permission to talk about the hard stuff. I love how real this podcast is. I went to catholic school growing up and this type of openness was never encouraged and I always felt held back when I was young. I truly believe this show champions what being religious and believing in God should look like. Not judging others, not condemning others, letting space open up for hard conversations. This is exactly what youth should be brought up in. I wish I had this when I was growing up. This allows for great mindset growth on how to be a believer and be human. I truly believe these types of conversations change the world. It’s changing mine every time I listen. Thank you so much for doing this podcast. I feel so blessed. You two are world changers.

Broken life can be fixed by opening the doors for God.

I'm 14 yrs old, I started hearing this podcast because ive noticed that im not living right. I feel like my life is broken but in reality it isnt, its just that I dont have a good relationship with God. This podcast sounds awesome for people who are struggling and want a good relationship with God like me. :)

Ms. V. Garrett ,

I love these ladies and the guest they have on their podcast. May God continue to bless them and their reach.
