    Episode #272 Advice for a Stronger Marriage

    Episode #272 Advice for a Stronger Marriage

    What do you want?
    Is a question that comes up a lot in marriage. From food to dates to how to discipline the kids.
    We tend to hold back from being honest with one another about what we want.
    Psalm 145:18
    Psalm 145 celebrates the greatness and goodness of God. 
    David is singing the praises of the gracious provision of God who helps, hears, delivers, and guards those who call on Him.
    Our prayers should reflect the character of God as revealed in history, in Scripture, and most of all in Jesus Christ.
    Listen in to hear how Billie and her husband David direct prayers to build a stronger marriage.

    Episode #270 5 Things to Leave Behind To Strengthen Our Faith

    Episode #270 5 Things to Leave Behind To Strengthen Our Faith

    After some life difficulties, I went to a dear friend for some girl time talking. I wasn't following Jesus the way she did, and I wanted to know how she did it.
    After a conversation about my faith, I realized what I had, wasn't as good as what Jesus offered.
    Many disciples turned away from following Jesus. Even when they were face to face with him, he knows we doubt at times, but we have to continually evaluate why we don't follow Him completely.
    In today's episode, we learn about the five things to leave behind to strengthen our faith.
    I want to let you know about the daily devotion I send out Monday-Friday mornings.

    Episode #268 Advice For How To Love

    Episode #268 Advice For How To Love

    My heart broke when a friend called to tell me about her wonderful time with a mutual friend.
    I was crushed because I'd been calling and texting that friend, trying to coordinate a time to get together.
    When the friend who called told me about their last-minute rendezvous, it was hard to control my emotions. I was angry and hurt. I introduced these two. I was friends with each of them first. Such an immature response.
    In today's episode, we learn how to love with nothing in return from the person but blessings from God.

    Episode #267 How To Be Bold In Prayer

    Episode #267 How To Be Bold In Prayer

    Growing up many of my friends got married right out of high school. I remember my mother sharing with me that she was praying I would marry the boy I was dating. He was a nice enough guy but I had aspirations to go to college and become a nurse.
    At church the next Sunday the preacher taught about God’s Will versus our Will. Let's just say I prayed for God's Will to be to my liking, not my mom's.
    I wasn’t too confident in my prayers being answered because haven’t we all prayed for something we desperately want or need and it doesn’t happen?
    In today's episode, we talk about praying with confidence for God's Will not our own, with boldness.
