Join host Aimée Walker and guests for these conversations about loving God with all that we are, right where we are and be empowered to overcome the obstacles in your own life to pursuing God wholeheartedly. We’re all devoted to something, and God’s desire is that He be the One we ultimately give our hearts to because its only through this wholehearted devotion that we can truly live the life He created us for.
In this special bonus episode our guest is none other than our founder Aimée Walker, former pastor, current writer, mother of four, #librarygoals, and black coffee aficionado. Listen in as our Managing Editor Ellie Di Julio interviews Aimée about growing up in a church family, how getting a law degree made her a better student of the Word, separating “work time” from “quiet time” in ministry, what wholehearted devotion means in her life, and God’s vision for @thedevotedcollective.
Sometimes God asks us to take a step of faith away from what we have known and what is comfortable to come follow Him. What will our response be? Join Aimée and Nicole Druskovich as they discuss setting aside comfort to be faithful wherever God calls us to be, putting down our roots as we learn to be present to our season and lean into His faithfulness, confident He is with us in all of our 'wherevers'. Connect with Nicole @nicoledruskovich.
When life doesn’t look as we’d expected or we find ourselves going the long way round, it can be difficult to hold on to our faith. Doubts and fears creep in through the cracks formed by the pressures of life, unwelcome circumstances, and even unusual blessings. At such times, how do we live with the kind of faith that pleases God? Today on the podcast, Aimée talks with Abi Daniel about clinging to God’s ever-present grace and the light of eternity in our seasons of struggle. Connect with Abi @abigaildaniel.
Paul exhorted Timothy to not let anyone look down on him because he was young, but to allow his life to set an example for all believers (1 Timothy 4:12). Our young people are growing up in a time and culture increasingly resistant to faith, and yet, many of them are living out Paul's words as they choose to say "yes" to Jesus. Today on the podcast, we're chatting with Youth Pastor Samara Madsen about pursuing devotion to Christ in a world that isn't and how the Church can champion the rising generations and help them to encounter Jesus for themselves. Connect with Samara @_samaramadsen.
Work. Much of our time is consumed by it, and whether we find ourselves at home, in the marketplace, or serving in a faith-based ministry, God wants us to discover joy and satisfaction in what we put our hands to. Yet all too often we instead find ourselves exhausted or even frustrated, caught up in a seemingly fruitless cycle of striving and doing. What if our work could become the gift God intended it to be? Today on the podcast, Aimée and guest Anya McKee are talking about work as worship and redeeming our toil as we learn to join God in what He is doing. Connect with Anya @anyamckee.
No matter what our work looks like, we are a Kingdom of Priests (1 Peter 2:9), commissioned to minister to the heart of God and to His people. As we understand who God has made us to be, we are released to serve His purposes in the places He has positioned us and find satisfaction in that work.
What are you good at? What lights you up? Is it singing? Gardening? Dancing? Cat herding? No matter what your talent is (and yes, you do have one), you can use it for the glory of God—if you’re willing to step out of your comfort zone and say ‘yes’ to the adventure He is calling you on. Join Aimée and guest Sina Steele as Sina shares her story of rediscovering her strengths. They'll discuss the multiplication of talents in the Kingdom and the power of our past experience to enable our present obedience, reminding us that there is room for everyone to thrive in the Kingdom. Connect with Sina @sinasteele.
