    When Daily Life Overwhelms

    When Daily Life Overwhelms

    Are you having trouble keeping it together? Does it feel like you're being overwhelmed by daily life, never mind facing unexpected circumstances with any kind of grace and poise?
    Oh, sister, you're not alone.
    Life ain't easy. But that doesn't mean you have to live without hope. Nor do you have to face the daily and the unexpected from a place of overwhelm.
    There is more for you in Jesus.
    Join me for an honest and faith-inspiring conversation with bible study teacher and faith-in-the-trenches sister, Wendy Pope, as we unpack biblical principles that you can stand upon confidently. We chat about Wendy's latest book, Jesus Everlasting, and navigating through the trials of COVID, the grief that comes when we lose loved ones and discovering how to live life with confidence that God is still on His throne.

    God Lessons in Everyday Life

    If you stopped for a moment and reflected on the last 24 hours, would you be able to recognize the hand of God moving in your life? Could you see the lessons He has for you in the mundane and chaos? His provisions in the hardships and abundance? His extravagant race and radical mercy in the middle of a life you didn't plan but know deeply that it is divinely ordained?
    Maybe you can raise your hands in a hearty, "Absolutely!" knowing God is in the details of your life. Or maybe you find yourself in a season of suffering, and the pain clouds your vision of His work.
    No matter where you find yourself today, this episode with Caitlin Henderson is bound to give you a fresh perspective on the presence of God in your story. Caitlin comes to us as an unexpected farmer's wife, who is still learning to trust God with "everything from wayward tractors to watching a marriage grow from surviving to flourishing."

    Rooted & Established

    Rooted & Established

    What would your life look like if you were deeply rooted in your faith and equally established by the love of God?
    Maybe you've not thought about these two aspects as it pertains to your emotional and relational health before, presuming that simply having faith is enough? Or that knowing God can be enough, evening if you don't personally feel a manifestation of His love.

She is equally committed to helping women uncover emotional wellness and the ability to grow relationally, with the confidence of the Lord and filling of His love as a guiding force. So if you're ready to grow as a woman of God, listen in to discover ways that you may be ready to experience wholehearted breakthrough and authentic life transformation!

    Out of the Shadow of 9/11

    Out of the Shadow of 9/11

    Do you remember where you were when you learned of the brutal terrorist attacks on 9/11?
    For Christina Ray Stanton, that day will forever be imprinted upon her heart and mind in a way that many of us could not even imagine. It is for that reason, I count it a privilege and honor to have Christina on the podcast during the 20th anniversary of 9/11. Living only six blocks from the Twin Towers, Christina and her husband Brian, as well as their dog, felt and saw the attack first hand. Not only did they endure a harrowing escape from Manhattan by boat to New Jersey, they found themselves homeless and desperately in need of the kind of volunteerism and generosity in which they would have normally been on the other side.
    Christina's testimony of God's provisions and faithfulness will not only encourage you but also challenge you to see life from a new perspective. Her accounts of the kindness of strangers and friends alike, will inspire you to live more intentionally, compassionately, and courageously.
    Christina Ray Stanton is an award-winning author and licensed NYC tour guide, and has been featured in print and TV many times in her 25-year career. For a decade she worked as Redeemer Presbyterian's short-term missions director, and she is the founder of the nonprofit organization Loving All Nations (lovingallnations.org). She and her husband, Brian, still live within blocks of the World Trade Center. To learn more about Christina, please visit christinaraystanton.com.
