    On today’s show I have invited Amy Julia Becker to talk about her new book, White Picket Fences: Turning toward Love in a World Divided by Privilege. We talk about privilege, what it means, and how it is a word that can provoke very strong reactions. We also talk about ways of identifying privilege, something some of us may often not be aware of. Amy Julia also shares her thoughts on the role people of faith have in addressing social divisions.
    In addition to White Picket Fences, Amy Julia is also the author of Small Talk: Learning From My Children About What Matters Most, A Good and Perfect Gift: Faith, Expectations and a Little Girl Named Penny, named one of the Top Books of 2011 by Publisher’s Weekly, and Penelope Ayers: A Memoir.

    Episode #28 Juli Slattery: Sex and The Single Girl.... and Marrieds too!

    Sex and the Single Girl...and Marrieds too!
    Hey!
    I am so glad you are here. On today's episode, I talk with Juli Slattery, my friend, and Founder of Authentic Intimacy, a ministry for sexual discipleship.
    We talk about Juli's book and bible study guide, "Sex and The Single Girl," and how our sexuality is a sexual battlefield!
    We actually talk about a WHOLE lot more than that! Whether married, single, dating, engaged.......This episode is for you!
    Tune in as we talk about what our sexuality teaches us about God, why the Christian purity narrative is limited, why what we do with our bodies matters, and the spiritual implications.
    In our conversation, we also ask the questions, "Where do we get our opinions about sexuality,?" "Who owns our sexuality," "What do we do with our sexual drives and longings as a sexual woman?"
     

     
    I am thrilled you are here and hope this podcast helps you gain a deeper understanding of your sexuality and how to think through sexual issues from a biblical perspective.

    Episode #27 Phileena Heuertz: Deepening our experience of God through Contemplative Practice

    Episode #27 Phileena Heuertz: Deepening our experience of God through Contemplative Practice

    On today's show we talk about contemplative prayer....solitude, silence and stillness, as a practice to deepen our experience with God.
    We will learn how contemplative practice deepens our relationship with and experience of God and is an essential practice for people who want to grow in their faith.
    This conversation may be new for a lot of us!  I encourage you to listen in as we talk about this practice as an invitation to awaken to God and our lives, and to see with new eyes.
    We will also talk about how we often numb ourselves and how our lives are filled with distractions and addictions that prevent us from what Psalm 46:10 says, "Be still and know that I am God."
    Being with God and not the constant going that can run our lives.
    On this episode, I have invited Phileena Heuertz to share insight from her book, Pilgrimage of a Soul, Contemplative Spirituality for the Active Life.
    In addition to being an author, Phileena’s work includes public speaking, teaching and writing on contemplative spirituality, facilitation of contemplative retreats, and spiritual direction. She holds a Masters of Christian Spirituality from Creighton University’s department of theology and is a certified spiritual director in the Ignatian contemplative evocative method.She and her husband Chris founded Gravity in 2012 to make contemplative practice accessible to individuals, communities and organizations.
    You can purchase Phileena's book on Amazon.

I just met Lisa a couple of weeks ago and found out she had a podcast. I was immediately intrigued and eager to listen. I have thoroughly enjoyed the eight podcasts I have listened to so far. Lisa is an attentive, interested interviewer. I highly recommend this podcast as I have great takeaways from each guest.
