Mini devotions on the day to day issues, taking Bible study from information to application.

    Self-Control Exercises

    Self-Control Exercises

    Have you ever told yourself that you couldn’t eat a certain food for a time, and then you’d go and eat more of it than ever? Or have you ever tried to hold back from losing your temper and then you let loose and exploded like a cannon? Or maybe you’ve experienced the runaway tongue that blurted out something that should have been edited before it was spoken? These examples are all related to a lack of self-control, also known in the Bible as temperance.


    Self-control is unnatural, but it can be gained through training. God wants us to have this fruit of the Spirit, and so He trains us through exercises that he allows into our lives. This episode covers some exercises we can practice to cultivate the fruit of temperance. 


    Many thanks for all the star ratings and encouraging reviews that dozens of you have left on Apple podcasts!

    Proverbs 27 Off-Script

    Proverbs 27 Off-Script

    Proverbs 27 Off-Script is a Bible application study of seven verses from Proverbs 27, beginning with the reminder that we never know "what a day may bring forth." The verses covered in this study are as follows: Proverbs 27:1, 4, 5-6, 9, 10, and 17.


    The Off-Script episodes are like sitting in the dining room at Francie's house with a slice of homemade pumpkin bread, a smooth cup of coffee, and the Bible. This episode also provides an example of the practical applications found in the book of Proverbs.

    Did God Answer Your Prayer?

    Did God Answer Your Prayer?

    Have you ever had question run through your mind: “Why didn’t God answer my prayer? It’s not uncommon to think like this, but underneath this question is another question: Did God fail to answer your prayer, or did He answer it differently than you requested it?


    We may be praying more than ever, but are we praying with a right spirit? A spirit of fear is not from God. He is never rattled and nothing surprises Him. How can we shift our thinking from fearful to trusting?


    This episode covers five ways that we can clear up our thinking about prayer, and improve our prayer lives in the process.


    Lesson notes coming soon!

    A Young Mom Asked for Advice

    A Young Mom Asked for Advice

    BONUS EPISODE: There’s a quote that says this: “Unsolicited advice is the junk mail of life.” That’s why this episode has the title, “A Young Mom Asked for Advice.” A young mom wrote to us with two motherhood questions. Since she asked, we are providing solicited advice! 


    Most episodes on Keep the Heart will cover the "issues of life" affecting a general audience, but occasionally we'll do a bonus episode that is more like a breakout session. Invite your mom friends to listen.

    Contentious Relationships

    Contentious Relationships

    Are there certain things that just set you off? We will never argue our way to happiness, and the only satisfaction in winning an argument is proving that you can be contentious to the finish line. What can we do about this human tendency to be contentious? The Bible has a lot to say about this subject, but we’ll just examine a few verses in this episode, leaving room for you to continue this important topical study on your own.

    How to Handle Discouragement

    How to Handle Discouragement

    Have you mastered the plaster smile? It’s the one that we wear when our insides are not smiling but we don’t want to reveal our true emotions. It’s easy to hide discouragement, but it’s not a solution to pretend to be fine when we’re not. Francie shares three biblical suggestions to help listeners who are walking through difficult times.
