Invitation to a Bible study was a gift to this Christian author
Author Jennifer Sienes didn’t grow up reading the Bible. An invitation from a friend to a Beth Moore Bible study changed her life and began her writing career. Jennifer’s next book in the Bedford County series is “These Simple Gifts.” Jennifer found God in that simple gift of invitation at a time she needed to be closer to Him. Listen as she reveals how she walks with God today. Here’s Jennifer.

’The Chosen’ director Dallas Jenkins reveals his heart for Jesus
"The Chosen," Season 3, launched last week in theaters worldwide. Audiences are able to see the first two episodes on the big screen. This is a fulfillment of director Dallas Jenkins’ dream to bring the life of Jesus to TV and movie watchers everywhere. I spoke to Dallas at a convention in 2021 and his honesty gives insight into where we are now with the series. I hope you enjoy this special replay episode.
As season 3 begins, Jesus gives the famous Sermon on the Mount, revealing the Beatitudes and feeding thousands with just a basket of fish and loaves. We know the miraculous end of this story, and season three begins to move away from the happy, fun, and Inspirational Jesus to the struggles of what will end with his death and resurrection. On this Thanksgiving weekend, Positively Joy presents a replay with Dallas as he discusses his intent for this series.
Angel Studios features "The Chosen" and other Christian entertainment here.

Can praying the rosary help us, and is it for every religion?
Today on the show: What is the rosary? Is it mystical or just a way to pray? YouTuber Keith Nester has created a movement through a daily show that draws thousands of people together to pray this special string of beads and knots. The beads represent the Lord’s Prayer and the Hail Mary. Keith explains the history of the rosary, and why it’s for everyone, not only Catholics.

Strategies for living everyday life with God. So relevent to keep focused on living our best life. Thank you.
WOW, as a guest, I would categorize our conversation as joyful. The similarities we had were like a breath of fresh air, particularly when you know others have had many of the same experiences. The caveat, the common denominator to overcoming life’s challenges, was the relationship we have with God.
Yvette is a joy!!
As a guest on her podcast I loved the experience! I really enjoyed our conversation and love the inspiration that just flowed as we conversed. Love the show!
