118. Defying a Culture of Rejection
How do you normally respond when someone rejects you? Whether it’s a disapproving look or a breakup that shatters your heart, rejection has a way of rocking our world.
In this episode, Joyce, Ginger, Erin, and their special guest Lisa Bevere talk through some of the ways rejection finds us in everyday life, share how we can heal from its effects, and remind us of how to remind ourselves of the truth: that God fully accepts and loves us. And His view of us is more accurate than anyone else’s, because it’s truth. Get ready to learn how to navigate your friendships, work, ministry, marriage, and even your own self-talk with the confidence of His constant love for you!
WALK IT OUT:
Write down the verses below, let them sink into your heart, and put them where you'll see them consistently. Hold on to them, maybe even look up a few more about God's love and acceptance. Make your own list of Scriptures that encourage you. And remember this: rejection is not who you are. YOU are loved, you are accepted, you are a daughter or son of God, and He will never reject you. It's always safe to lean into Him-take some time to receive His love for vou.
Scriptures: Proverbs 27:10 – Psalm 139:17
117. The Big Questions for Women with Lisa Bevere
What aspects of life as a woman are the most challenging? Frustrating? Beautiful? Downright confusing? We’ve all got questions, and today it’s time for ANSWERS.
In this conversation, Ginger, Erin, and Joyce talk with Lisa Bevere about all the things we want to know as women! Joyce and Lisa share their perspectives as female pioneers in a male-dominated profession and how they’ve dealt with people’s endless opinions about their lives. From leadership and ministry to how to carry ourselves in work, church, and other environments, and how to balance it all, this episode is all about letting go of unhealthy expectations and finding the freedom we were born to live in as God’s daughters.
WALK IT OUT:
Next time you're feeling a little vulnerable/uncomfortable as a woman, maybe even the only woman in the room, remember that God is the One who protects you, vindicates you, equips you, and loves you so much, just as you actually are. There's a reason that He has you in that room, so you can be so confident in that.
Write out 3 things about yourself that you know God put in you. Put it somewhere that you'll see and remember it, and when you have questions, take them to Him- He has the answers you need!
Scriptures: Psalm 3:3 – Psalm 46:5 – Proverbs 31:10
116. The Fall of Joyce Meyer *Literally
Oh, how we’ve missed you! And in true Talk It Out fashion, we’re kicking things off with some real talk! In today’s conversation, Ginger and Erin talk with Joyce about some crazy health challenges she’s recently faced, and how God has taught her about pressing on in really difficult circumstances. It’s full of practical encouragement for all of us…no matter what we’re going through, we can’t give up!
WALK IT OUT:
PRAY. When you’re going through something hard, go to God with this attitude: “God, whatever it is You want to show me, I’ve got an open heart, help me to see it. And [even if things don’t go the way I planned] … I'm going to trust you in the meantime.” THINK. The next time you encounter a problem, let God’s Word frame your thoughts about it. Here’s a few examples from Joyce: God loves me, He’s with me and He's going to help me in this. WRITE IT OUT. Write out today’s two Scriptures and remember to take care of your spirit every day so you can stay strong and be ready for the challenges of life that come unexpectedly.
Scriptures: Proverbs 18:14 – Ephesians 6:11-18

113. The Pain of Pornography
Today’s episode is different. This isn’t just a topic of conversation. This is our lives. We want to share with you a very real and emotional discussion we had about the pain of pornography. A pain that hits really close to home for so many of us and has left us broken and overwhelmed with questions and anger.
Whether you are right in the thick of discovering your loved ones addiction, or you are years out, please listen in. We want to remind you that you are good enough, you are beautiful just the way you are, and you are not alone.
This encouragement was needed
I’m crying as I’m listening to today’s episode. Something that was said, really touched my heart, “you can be mad at God, but please, don’t become bitter”. I had a miscarriage in 2020, and I was so mad at God that it led me to become bitter towards Him, which then led me to a faith crisis. I’m thankful to say that the same God I got mad at, is the same God who led me to my healing. Thank you for talking about this hardships, not just sharing the testimonies of what God did, but sharing the journey of when He hasn’t answered our prayers. I pray this episode encourages many women go are going through infertility, miscarriage and still birth.
Love you Ladies
You encourage me and make me laugh, thank you! Going to see Mama Joyce in San Antonio and I can’t wait
My safe space
No matter what your going through this is a safe space to breath, relax and realize your not alone in your triumphs and your struggles.
