    When A Nobody Says "YES!"

    When A Nobody Says "YES!"

    Self-described "nobody," Barbara Demorest, describes how a personal encounter with cancer inspired her to find a solution for a common problem facing breast cancer victims.  She said "Yes," when many others may have taken a pass.  We talk about walking through open doors, not stressing when a door closes, the hazards of putting limits upon ourselves, how impostor syndrome impacts our ability to step forward, beginning with little steps, how to equip and inspire others, dealing with criticism, the symbiotic nature of giving/receiving, why caring is critical, humility and staying on guard against pride, suffering in order to transform, trusting and having faith even in adversity, how encouragement speaks life into people, and how God uses the nobody's.  Barb is certainly not a "nobody" to thousands of women across the globe, and you'll love finding out what a special somebody she is!

    Journey to Freedom

    Journey to Freedom

    What does one do when faced with the worst kind of choices?  Alvaro Rivas literally found himself with a gun to his head, when the Nicaraguan government claimed he was a spy because of his work with American ministries.  He knew that he risked imprisonment or death if he remained in his native country; the only option was to flee to freedom.  The problem?  His wife and children could not join him in the arduous journey.  They would have to come later, when Alvaro could secure them safer passage.  In the meantime, he would cross forests, rivers, and endure internment in a detention facility, encountering the worst of humanity along the way.  Safer in a free country, Alvaro holds onto faith that his family will ultimately join him, all the while building a life of legacy and service in his newly adopted country.

    Book Review: The Last Arrow

    Erwin Raphael McManus offers a thought-provoking, motivating treatise in The Last Arrow, published in 2017.  In this episode, Beth discusses some of McManus' themes, such as what is represented by arrows, why we tend to hold back from pursuing our most important goals, how God uses ordinary people to accomplish his purposes, the importance of community, how to take action, how to guard against the temptation to quit, and why it's not just acceptable, but crucial to go BIG, where life and God are concerned.

A time for discernment

I really enjoyed your interview with Robyn. This is a message we all need to hear. More than ever, we need to polish and practice our God given gift of discernment and know the beautiful truth He is speaking to each of us. Robyn really made me think about how my life could truly be different if I fully understood the deep love that God has for me! Thanks for the inspiring platform and message.

Great first episode!

I really enjoyed your first episode. Selflessness is something that needs to be talked about more not less, especially in a culture that is heading more and more in the other direction. I’m looking forward to the next episode! Thank you!
