It is for Freedom aims to share the stories of women who have found freedom in Christ, so that others too can be set free. Galatians 5:1 says, “it is FOR freedom that Christ dies to set us free.” The word FOR is a function word that indicates purpose. As women, sharing our unique story of bondage to freedom is FOR someone. So that they can get a glimpse of Jesus. So that they can receive freedom, embrace freedom and walk in freedom.

This podcast shares inspiring and real stories from women who have experienced bondage, and were brought into freedom by the truth of the Gospel. We will cover topics such as addiction, body-image, friendship, relationships, forgiveness, worth, God’s faithfulness and many more!

    Episode 122: Christina Dent

    Christina Dent is a writer, TEDx speaker, and perpetual question asker. She grew up in a conservative, Christian home and earned a degree in Biblical Studies with an emphasis in Christian Ministry from Belhaven University. 
     
    As a young adult, Christina assumed she had a solid understanding of how the world works. That changed when she and her husband became foster parents in 2014 and she got an up-close look at the realities of addiction, drug use, and the far-reaching negative impact of our drug laws.   
     
    Christina founded End It For Good out of her desire to invite others to listen to the voices of those impacted by our drug laws and consider a different way. She is currently writing a book on the research and experiences that changed her mind about the best path forward to reduce harm from drugs. 
     
    Christina is married to her college sweetheart, Thomas, and they live in Ridgeland, MS, with their three sons. On the weekends you can find her biking, in a hammock reading a biography, or hosting friends for dinner.

Huge fan!

I love this podcast. The message that Holly brings is so heart warming and I feel like every person can relate in some way shape or form. She is so genuine in helping others reach their full potential you can’t help but love the word she brings.

I Enjoy the Stories but

I am a huge fan of this podcast! I love Holly and I've enjoyed every guest she has and hearing their freedom stories which are so powerful!

My one problem is that I am a plus size woman and I am confident in my skin and in who I am. I workout every morning and lead an active lifestyle but I feel I am someone that Holly wouldn't like because I am a confident plus size woman who doesn't let the numbers on a scale dictate my life. This last episode just made me feel like I should be ashamed to love me as a plus size woman and that I should be striving to attain a size 0 and not embrace my size 22/24 body.

I'll keep listening but I wish the podcast was a little more loving and accepting of bigger bodies.
