    68: Living as Close to the Earth as Possible

    In honor of Earth Day, today's episode features our special guest, Suze Bertsch, a wife/ mother, and creative engineer living in Michigan. Suze embodies a philosophy of mindful consumption and ethical living.

    She breaks down what "sustainability" actually means, and talks about her passion for reducing waste and consumption, emphasizing the importance of products that align with our values and support ethically sourced materials. She highlights some of her favorite products, and reminds us of the significance of considering the impact of our purchases on the planet and human quality of life. Suze advocates for a lifestyle that embraces simplicity, avoiding processed foods and synthetic materials, and instead, choosing products that honor our connection to the earth.

    Scripture:

    "Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” - Genesis 1:26 NIV

    "The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it." Genesis 2:15 ESV

    67: Praying Powerfully For Those Who Don't Believe

    67: Praying Powerfully For Those Who Don't Believe

    Our guest, Michelle McTaggart, joins us in this episode to share how her faith helped lead her parents to believe in God. Her father encountered a miracle "dream" in a near death experience that turned him from a hater of God, into a lover of God. In this conversation we touch on aspects of praying for those we love who don't believe, and how praying specifically, powerfully, and consistently can make a a bigger difference than we could ask for or imagine!

     

    Ephesians 3:20: "Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think."

    66: Four Ways to Manage Disappointment When Life Doesn't Go According to Plan

    66: Four Ways to Manage Disappointment When Life Doesn't Go According to Plan

    Have you ever had to deal with disappointment after failed plans or a "re-route" in your daily routine? It can sometimes be tough to overcome those emotions and move forward in peace ~ a challenge we certainly have all faced from time to time!

    In this episode, we discuss "4 Ways to Manage Disappointment When Life Doesn't Go According to Plan". 

     

    Philippians: 4: 6-7 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

    Proverbs 16:9 "In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps."

    John 16:33  “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

    65: “If I Don’t Laugh I’ll Cry” with Author Molly Stillman

    65: “If I Don’t Laugh I’ll Cry” with Author Molly Stillman

    Molly Stillman joins us to discuss her new book, “If I Don’t Laugh I’ll Cry : How Death, Debt, and Comedy Led to a Life of Faith, Farming, and Forgetting What I Came Into this Room For...”. She talks about discovering her faith in Christ, and how that brought her to a place of peace more than any “self-help” method could. She discusses personal loss, crawling out of debt after irresponsible financial decisions, and how it’s “possible to gain everything if we are willing to surrender it all to Jesus”.

    64: The Balancing Act

    Do you ever feel like you are spinning multiple plates - with one always falling? Do you ever feel like you "can't do it all" the way other people seem to be able to?

    Your host Kathryn has been feeling this lately, and has some tips to share! Listen to hear what God has been speaking through the lies and disappointment when life seems to be overwhelming. 

     

    Matthew 19:26

    Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

    John 15:5

    “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing."
