    Michelle Debenport and Amber discuss discuss being an entrepreneur, the fear of failure, and getting unstuck.
    Feeling Stuck? Need Clarity? Questions Discussed:

    (6:21) You are a true entrepreneur, starting businesses since you were a young girl. You've said your motto is "Taste it. Try It. See if you like it." What are some of the businesses you've started and some things you've learned along the way?

    (12:01) Despite having launched several businesses, one of which is your successful stock photography business, you still were unsure what you were created to do (I think this really resonates with women, esp. those who have been stay at home moms). Share a little of the journey you have been on during the last 4.5 years.

    (20:04) How do you wrestle through, "I am still fulfilling God's purpose even when I may not be doing what He created me to do"?

    (22:43) I resonate with the feeling of "being stuck spinning your wheels in all sorts of directions." How do you encourage and coach women who are stuck in this way?

    (28:28) "Fear of failure is the #1 reason people don't set goals or try new things," Help us shift our perspective on failure.

    (35:15) As we close, take a moment to reflect on God's unwavering grace in your life as an entrepreneur. How have you experienced His care for you in the "failures" and successes?

    Pete Greig | Hearing God's Voice

    Pete Greig | Hearing God's Voice

    Pete Greig and Amber discuss hearing God in the natural and the normal, experiencing Him with all of our senses, and why the Spirit living in us allows us to hear Him differently than most people in the Bible. 
    Hearing God's Voice Questions Pete and Amber Discuss:

    (3:31) Why do you think Christians have strayed so far away from expecting to hear from God?

    (5:40) Describe the differences between God's Word and God's Whisper.

    (8:16) Because of hurt that has come from fellow Christians we sometimes don't know when to trust that voice. Do you have anything that you would share when it comes to that?

    (14:53) To what degree should we expect God to speak to us today like He once did in the Bible?

    (20:30) I've heard time and time again that contemplative prayer, imaginative prayer, breath prayers are progressive, not Biblical, dangerous and the list goes on. Will you speak to this?

    (25:47) You, Jon Tyson, Tyler Staton, Sharon Garlough Brown and others have spoken about the practice of Lectio Divina and how it has impacted your walk with Jesus. Others, such as David Helms, Tim Challies have spoken about the dangers of it. Will you speak to this quote from Tim Challies " if we follow Lectio Divina from personal devotions to sermon preparation, we may not preach the text, but preach our interpretation and appreciation of the text. We preach the text as it impacted us, not the text as it is."

    (34:36) Let's end with a question my husband wanted me to ask you from your book God On Mute. After long battles with health issues for your wife, what wisdom would you offer to those who still struggle with this daily as your wife and family does?

    Andy Crouch | Reclaim Relationship in a Technological World

    Andy Crouch | Reclaim Relationship in a Technological World

    FREE Resource: 8 Books That Were Influential in Ways That Surprised Me
    Andy Crouch and Amber discuss the human desire to be recognized, the superpower zone technology often launches us into, and the impact that has on our real life experiences, and some redemptive moves we can make to reclaim relationships.
    Questions Discussed about Reclaiming Relationship in a Technological World:

    (1:42) You begin with the words, "Recognition is the first human quest," in your book The Life We're Looking For. Share a little about our innate need to be recognized through face to face relationships and how we have displaced that with technology.

    (7:49) You share a contemplative exercise you had in the airport, walking and looking at each person you passed and inwardly saying, "Image bearer." You describe the experiment as "one of the more memorable and moving spiritual experiences of [your] life." In light of the convenient world we live in, how can we intentionally slow down enough to treat people as someone vs. something?

    913:27) Talk to us about the "superpower zone" that technology often launches us into and the impact it has on our real life experiences.

    (19:57) How does Jesus describe "abundance without dependence" and how does that lead us away from the life of human flourishing as God designed?

    (26:10) You write about redemptive moves in an impersonal world. Will you share a few of those with us?

    (32:07) If someone listening and wants to push back against the negative impacts of technology, where would you encourage them to begin?

    Reclaiming Relationship in a Technological World Quotes to Remember:
    "Technology though very good in and of itself ended up derailing the things that matter most, which all have to do with us being persons designed for relationship and love."

    Jen Rosner | The Jewishness of the Gospe

    Recieve the FREE Resource: 8 Books That Were Influential in Ways That Surprised Me
    Jen Rosner and Amber discuss historical events that ultimately declared Judaism and Christianity as two separate religious traditions, Jesus as a Jewish rabbi, and how a deeper knowledge of Judaism can add to our Christian faith. 
    The Jewishness of the Gospel Questions Discussed:

    (1:54) You and your family are Messianic Jews. Share a bit of your faith journey with Jesus and what it means to be a Messianic Jew.

    (7:30) As a Christian, we often forget "Jesus was a Jewish rabbi whose life was patterned around the Jewish calendar, not the Christian calendar." To lay a foundation for today's conversation, share a little background of how Judaism and Christianity became separate religions and why that is important today.

    (14:00) In your book, Finding Messiah: A Journey into the Jewishness of the Gospel, you help the reader understand the Jewish roots of our Christian faith and practice. Will you share a few of those roots that give us a robust understanding of our faith?

    (24:09) How can Jewish traditions enrich our walk with Jesus?

    (29:58) As a Messianic Jew, what does your week look like?

    (32:30) How do you combat that yoke of legalism that can easily slip in?

    (36:11) So if someone who is a Christian is interested in some Messianic Jewish practices where would you tell them to begin?

    (40:02) Are Jews welcoming conversations from Christians about their common roots?

    Jessica Thompson | How God Loves Us,

    Join the Grace Enough community HERE!
    Jessica Thompson and Amber discuss the heart behind Jessica's devotional, How God Loves Us: 40 Days to Discovering His Character in the Fruit of the Spirit.
    How God Loves Us Questions Discussed:

    (5:26) Share a little about your faith journey. When did you begin walking with Jesus?

    (12:01) If you grew up in the church you can probably sing, "And the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace.." but in "How God Loves Us" you write about the fruit of the Spirit being the characteristics of God. Let's begin with how Christians typically think and talk about the fruit of the Spirit.

    (16:34) What are some places in the Word where we see a fruit of the Spirit displayed in God?

    (20:59) What are some ways you would encourage someone who's just constantly finding themselves going back to that, "Oh, I do this to earn God's favor"?

    (26:17) Why you choose to write a devotional vs. a trade book and what your hope is for the book?

    Quotes to Remember from How God Loves Us:
    "I was like what Jesus described, the whitewashed tomb, it looks clean on the outside, inside is just dead rotting bones. All of my goodness wasn't good enough."
    "What made me love God was the realization that He was good in my place, that Jesus Christ was that goodness that I needed."
    "I didn't have to act anymore. I didn't have to prove myself anymore. I didn't have to attain to some level of outward spirituality that everybody would praise me for. I was free and forgiven and loved because of who he is not because of who I am."
