    Most Asked Questions: How Can I Know God's Will For My Life?

    Leslie continues her Most Asked Questions series this week by tackling the topic "How can I know God's will for my life?" It might seem hard to discern what God’s specific calling on our lives. Am I called to be married or single? Am I called to be a missionary? Am I called to have a career? Am I called to this specific opportunity? But as Leslie shares in this episode, we all too often we get caught up in those kinds of questions and miss the fact that all our decisions are meant to flow out of a much deeper understanding of who we are called to be - daughters of the King.

    Most Asked Questions: Why do women's ministries seem shallow?

    Most Asked Questions: Why do women's ministries seem shallow?

    Leslie continues her Most Asked Questions series this week with a deep dive into the question "Why does it seem like women's ministries are often shallow?" In this episode, Leslie unpacks some of the key reasons why many Christian leaders are choosing an easy, watered-down Gospel when it comes to women's ministry, and shows us how our own passionate pursuit of Jesus Christ can have a positive impact upon this modern-day trend. It won’t be chick flicks, spa parties, or shallow feel-good messages that will change a woman’s life and awaken her heart to the Gospel. It will be the pure, uncompromising, timeless Truth of Jesus Christ.  This episode reminds us not to settle for shallow when it comes to our spiritual lives, and offers practical ways we can influence the women around us to go after more of Jesus.

    Most asked Questions: How should I handle manipulative people?

    Most asked Questions: How should I handle manipulative people?

    Leslie continues her Most Asked Questions series with a Biblical look at responding to manipulative people. Many women struggle with feeling controlled or strongly influenced by manipulative friendships, and it can be confusing to know how to respond to this challenge in a healthy and Christ-centered way. As Christians, we are to be controlled only by the Spirit of God, rather than by human manipulation. In this episode, Leslie shares three Biblical keys to becoming set free from manipulation. If you have struggled with being manipulated, you will be amazed and the freedom and joy you find once you allow God to remove the unhealthy control of others over your life, so that you can make yourself completely and fully available to Him.

    Most Asked Questions: How do I balance family and ministry?

    Most Asked Questions: How do I balance family and ministry?

    Is it possible to be healthy and balanced in both family and ministry? While ministry is a wonderful way to showcase Christ’s love to others, the enemy can often use our good intentions to serve others as bait for stress, chaos and overcommitment. Many Christians who start enthusiastically in ministry end up in a place of burn out and disillusionment as time goes on. In this episode, Leslie draws from her own ministry experience to share key Biblical principles that can help us approach ministry in a healthy and Christ-centered way. She offers insights into how to balance ministry with other responsibilities such as family relationships, and gives practical suggestions for avoiding ministry burnout. This episode casts a vision for ministry that goes the distance.

Life changing

My husband and I can’t thank you and Eric enough for your messages. The Lord used your ministry to completely transform us. God bless you with the richest rewards.

Thank you for addressing Legalism and healing from it

Leslie, I’m so grateful that you are addressing this very relevant issue in the church. Many young people a overcompensating for what they felt were legalistic rules and getting lost in the world and bitterness in the process. What a beautiful, gracious way you spoke on this. Thank you and thank the Lord!!

Gospel centered application

I have been reading Set Apart Girl articles since I was a young teen. I am now approaching 30, and the Lord is still using this ministry as a foundational source of encouragement, wisdom, and correction. Leslie is faithful in presenting gospel centered insight, and scripture saturated advise. I remember being 15 years old, and soaking up these biblical truths. I am now married with a child, and I can see how God used this ministry to provide practical advise throughout my life (being a teen, single, dating, marriage, motherhood, ministry, etc)
