    Ashley Hales | Embracing Limits, 154

    Ashley Hales joins Amber to discuss limits, and how slowing down and embracing limits frees us to more fully enjoy our lives.


    Embracing Limits Questions:
    (5:29) You've recently released A Spacious Life: Trading Hustle and Hurry for the Goodness of Limits. Share a little of your personal backstory with the rat race, the hustle, and the Western way.

    (10:28) Mantras we frequently hear are, "Be the hero of your own story," "Follow Your Dreams," "You Got This Girl." What are some of the "mantras" Jesus spoke that promote a very different approach to life?

    (13:31) Why are we so resistant to the idea of limits?

    (15:37) How are limits actually freeing, helping us to flourish?

    (19:07) Have you found embracing limits is a choice you have to make time and time again?

    (21:33) What are pocket practices and how can they help us find a little more breathing room in life?

    (23:52) What are some practical ways we can cultivate a more spacious life?

    (29:48) How have you experienced the sufficiency of God's grace in your life?

    Quotes to Remember From Embracing Limits:
    Wendell Berry says, "We live the given life, not the planned."


    "If the point of life is not self referential, but it is to find our identity in God, then our limits can actually be invitations to knowing God."


    "We used to live more of given lives and now we have more options open to us and it's not necessarily a good thing."


    "I think the invitation really is to acknowledge our weariness, to acknowledge our exhaustion, to acknowledge our broken relationships, and to come to God, come to Jesus, to begin to learn those unforced rhythms of grace."

    Sarah Geringer | Christian Meditation, 153

    Sarah Geringer joins Amber to discuss Christian meditation.  What is it? How does it differ from Scripture memorization? And how it can transform your thought life.


    Questions on Christian Mediation Sarah and Amber Discuss:
    (8:01) In today’s culture, we hear the word meditation and think “namaste” or emptying our mind completely and focusing on self, but meditation is a Christian practice. How would you describe Christian meditation?

    (11:19) How is meditation expressed in the language of the Bible? Is it a biblical concept?

    (13:17) How did the practice of Biblical meditation become a part of your spiritual toolbox? 

    (17:17) Did you realize you needed healing when the journey began?

    (22:25) What are some practical ways one can begin to practice Christian meditation?

    (25:15) Share a bit about the books you have written on Christian meditation and your hope for them?

    (29:32) What is the difference between Christian meditation and Scripture memory?

    (33:36) How have you experienced the sufficiency of God’s grace in your life?

    Christian Meditation Quotes to Remember:
    “[Christian meditation] in the Psalms, it’s talking about focusing on and repeating God’s laws, God’s precepts, God’s character, God’s promises, all those things that we need to focus on to be equipped to live the Christian life.”


    “It [Christian meditation] started releasing me from the bondage of codependency, of people pleasing, of seeking approval from others for my identity, it really changed everything for me.”


    “God meets us where we’re at, whatever struggle we’re in right now. He can pull those words right off the page, and minister to us, wherever we need it.”


    “Meditation is really slowing down, taking the time to process it [the Word], work through it, apply it to your life.”


    When I encounter a verse, I have three questions I ask:


    What does this tell me about God?

    What does this tell me about myself?

    And what does this tell me about how I should treat other people?

    Sharon Garlough Brown | Spiritual Practices and Formation, 152

    Sharon Garlough Brown joins Amber to discuss spiritual practices awaking us to the presence of God and being formed by the word of God.


    Spiritual Practices & Formation Interview Questions:
    (4:45) More often than not I am finding Christians either have little to no understanding of spiritual practices or they don't place a high value on them in their day to day lives.  What are spiritual practices and how do they impact our walk with Jesus?

    (6:39) How are spiritual practices expressed in the language of the Bible? Are they biblical concepts?

    (10:28) I've heard it said, "Well, I'm not a very disciplined person." What is the difference between living a generally disciplined life and practicing spiritual disciplines?

    (12:26) Will you speak to the exhausted women out there about spiritual practices and formation?

    (13:54) Where is a good place to get started for those who are wanting to pursue spiritual practices more intentionally?

    (18:57) How do you direct people away from that temptation to make spiritual practices into a checklist and toward an opportunity to really commune with God?

    (20:27) Let's talk about Lectio Divina. What is it?

    (24:42) How can one begin this practice?

    (26:38) What would you say to people who want to give up or abandon their practice?

    (28:22) Sharon briefly shares her about her books

    (33:20) Why do you think that we, as a Church, as a whole, have pushed back so much on some spiritual practices?

    Quotes to Remember:
    "I want to recast...spiritual practices...as ways to be awake and attentive to the presence of God."


    "Spiritual practices can enlarge our capacity to say yes to The Love, which loved us first."


    Lectio Divina: "Rather than me taking control over a text. It sets me humbly beneath the Word of God, saying, 'Lord, Your Word is alive. It's living, it's active. It's sharper than that two edged sword. It's able to divide the spirit from the soul, the bone from the marrow [Heb. 4:12] Lord, I'm saying yes to your living word reading me."


    "I often got into the bad habit of reading God's Word in order to teach God's word, rather than reading God's Word in order to be formed by God's word."

    Jamie Ivey joins Amber to discuss her new children's book, God Made You to Be You, cheering women on, and walking in their purpose.


    Questions Jamie and Amber Discuss:
    (2:04) Share a little of your faith journey with us.  When did you come to know Jesus?

    (9:03) What's it like looking back to when The Happy Hour began to now?

    (11:31) Podcasting and ministry leading has been one of the primary areas God has used to help you settle into who He created you to be instead of all of the other ministry leaders who sit across the mic from you. Share a bit of that journey with us and a bit of the tension.

    (17:00) "You be You" can sound like a popular post-modern mantra! What do you mean by that?

    (22:49( What are some ways you have learned to stand firm against insecurity and discontentment?

    (26:49) You've published your first children's book, "God Made You to Be You" that came out of "You Be You."  Why is this message important for kids and adults alike?

    (31:02) I see another theme in "God Made You to Be You" and that is how friends can encourage one another in how God made them unique and to point them toward using their gifts vs. grasping for someone else's gifts. As we close, will you speak to that?

    (33:23) How have you experienced the sufficiency of God's grace in your life?

    Amy Gannett | Knowing & Worshipping God, 149

    Amy Gannett joins Amber to discuss knowing and worshipping God and how one should inform the other. 


    Questions Amy and Amber Discuss About Knowing & Worshipping God:
    (4:33) Let's start with the basics. What is theology?

    (6:09) What is doxology?

    (7:31) All too often we separate knowing and worshipping God into two distinct categories. Why should our knowledge of God always lead to our worship of Him?

    (15:01) Worship is so much more than singing at church on a Sunday.  What are some practical ways one can worship and adore God in their day to day lives?

    (25:00) Let's talk about developing a habit of engaging God through His Word.

    (29:06) As we close, what is your greatest hope for Fix Your Eyes?

    (32:31) How have you seen the grace of God be enough in your own personal life?

    Quotes to Remember About Knowing & Worshipping God:
    "Fix Your Eyes comes out of that desire to help us not just have heads full of knowledge about God, but also hearts of worship, that respond to the God we're learning about."


    "The more we learn about God, the more we need to respond to who God is by praising him for his unchanging character."


    "[Life is] richer when we know God and live our lives in response to him. And that doesn't mean that we will be without suffering. It does not mean that we'll be healthy, wealthy, and wise. Scripture doesn't promise us that."


    "Scriptures pulling back the curtain and God is saying, 'This is who I am. This is my character. This is my nature. This is what I do.' And why does God do that? Because he wants us to know Him."
