    OTB 02: The Problem with Manifesting: A Christian Perspective with Rachel Tenney of The Voca Society

    In this month's episode of Outside the Bubble, I dive deep into the popular concept of manifesting and explore its implications through a Christian lens with my special guest, Rachel Tenney of The Voca Society. Manifesting, often described as the practice of bringing something tangible into your life through attraction and belief, has become a mainstream trend. But is it compatible with Christian beliefs?

    Rachel Tenney shares her insights on why manifesting can be problematic for Christians, discussing the spiritual, theological, and practical issues associated with this practice. We'll examine how manifesting contrasts with biblical teachings, and Rachel will offer alternative approaches that align with Christian values and how we can better focus on faith and trust in God’s plans rather than our own desires.

    Tune in to gain a deeper understanding of the intersection between contemporary spiritual practices and traditional Christian doctrines. Whether you're a believer questioning the concept of manifesting or someone curious about its popularity, this episode provides a clear, informed perspective that's not to be missed.



    About Today’s Guest
    Rachel Tenney is a Christian, wife to Joe, mama to Meira and Luther, and entrepreneur (whenever she gets a spare moment!). She loves bougie coffee, deep conversations, and applying biblical theology to the practical issues women face in their daily lives. When she started her journey as an entrepreneur, she went looking for resources about applying her faith to her unique lifestyle as a Christian, a woman, and an entrepreneur and was surprised to find very little that blended all three things. Eventually, she started The Voca Society out of her own desire for solid resources that meet that criteria, and loves providing a hub of resources, support, and community for women walking the same path!

    OTB 01: Choosing Faith During Infertility & Pregnancy Complications With Alexis Inderbitzin

    OTB 01: Choosing Faith During Infertility & Pregnancy Complications With Alexis Inderbitzin

    What do you do when the journey to motherhood starts with heartbreak instead of joy? And what does it look like to seek comfort from God in the midst of grief? That’s what my guest, Alexis Courtney Inderbitzin, had to process on her road to motherhood. In today’s episode, we’ll be talking about:

    Infertility
    Pregnancy loss/miscarriage
    Embryo adoption
    High risk pregnancies
    Having a NICU baby
    Working on your marriage
    And how God was present every step of the way!


    About Today’s Guest
    Alexis Inderbitzin, originally from Arkansas, has been living in Dallas for 10 years, been married to the love of her life for eight years, and walked through the trenches of infertility for six years. The Lord blessed her family with their miracle baby boy, Sunny, in December 2023 after an extremely high risk pregnancy. “Motherhood is everything I ever dreamed it would be. Through my toughest years God created a intimate relationship between me and Him I wouldn’t have had otherwise. I pray that by listening something can resonate with you and the Lord pierces your heart and lets you know you aren’t alone!” You can snag her book To Those Who Wait, which walks through her many years of waiting, on Amazon!
