    69. Coping with Anger in Parenting with Bob Flayhart

    I can't be the only one who struggles with anger as I try to navigate motherhood. Today I'm joined by father and grandfather Bob Flayhart to talk about how as Christians we cope with the days when the anger bubbles up and we end up blowing it. I hope you will listen until the end because the grace and hope offered moved me deeply!

    67. Overcoming the Temptation of Comparison with Ruth Chou Simons

    As we walk through a broken world it is easy to feel alone and disconnected from hope. We get lost and trapped in a hopeless cycle of comparing our difficult circumstances to the journeys of others. Today I’m talking to Ruth Chou Simons about how to find hope as we navigate our walk through the already not yet promise of the gospel.



    You can find Ruth Chou Simons on Instagram and her newest book "Pilgrim" is linked.

    65. Keeping Christian Love in Politics with Kaitlyn Schiess

    65. Keeping Christian Love in Politics with Kaitlyn Schiess

    As we head into an election year it seems like everyone loses their mind. Fights break out more easily even among people who usually get along. How as Christians do we navigate national sin, and people co-opting the Bible for their own agenda? Be sure to listen to the end as Kaitlyn and I brainstorm good questions to ask when discussing heated topics.

    64. Cultivating Intimacy in Marriage with Ike Miller

    64. Cultivating Intimacy in Marriage with Ike Miller

    We all come to our relationships with the experiences that happened in our past, and also the things that have happened to our spouse. Maybe we see how those situations affect us and our marriage or perhaps we are unaware. Today Ike and I are talking about the baggage we bring to relationships. Not as a way to berate ourselves or our partner, but to lean into the tools our past has given to us, and heal from the places that that are causing continued cycles of struggle.



    You can find Ike Miller HERE on Instagram. (His wife, Sharon, was featured in this episode.) This is where you can find his book "Good Baggage"
