    Jesus at the Gym // Another Look at Acts 1:8

    Jesus at the Gym // Another Look at Acts 1:8

    Recently, I had this moment when I felt like God challenged me about where I’m willing to show my faith. It was just a strange little moment on a treadmill with a communion cup, but it really got me thinking. I have no problem taking communion at church; I don’t even struggle to lead communion at church. However, taking communion at Planet Fitness? I’m not so sure about that! WWJD!
    I share the story in this podcast "Jesus at the Gym”. Of course, the communion cup is symbolic in this story, but I think it begs the question about how clearly we're willing to show our faith.  In Acts 1:8, Jesus said: "You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." What does this practically look like? Well, I hope you’ll listen and think about where YOU are willing to take Jesus. 

    Be encouraged! Tosha ❤️

    "Meet with God and Make Him Known MONDAYS!" - Interview with Anastasha Williams Menicucci // Devotion and Discipleship with College Girls

    "Meet with God and Make Him Known MONDAYS!" - Interview with Anastasha Williams Menicucci // Devotion and Discipleship with College Girls

    Parenting can be crazy hard sometimes, but then there are those moments when we get to see the fruit of our labor. That’s what I’m celebrating this week. My daughter Anastasha started out shy and quiet, but she has become quite the spiritual leader for those entrusted to her. At 25, she walks closely with Jesus and makes Him known on a weekly basis to others - specifically, college aged young people. 
    I tried to capture some of Anastasha’s Jesus story when I interviewed her for this episode of “Meet with God Make Him Known MONDAYS!” I invite you to listen in and be encouraged by Anastasha’s thoughts about devotions in her own life and discipleship for the next generation. 
    And if you like the podcast, would you do us a favor? Please leave a review of the podcast so others can find out more about this aspect of the Family Disciple Me ministry. Thank you so much!
    I know parenting is crazy hard, but I pray you will be encouraged by this Jesus story I get to share from my own family this week! Our kids are watching us, and oh what joy whey they catch the heartbeat of what matters to us in life!
    May God bless you as YOU “Meet with God and Make Him Known” this week! 

    Be encouraged! Tosha Williams, for FDM ❤️

    Family Discipleship 102: Making Others Matter in Jesus' Name // Our Story of The Great Dog Rescue

    Family Discipleship 102: Making Others Matter in Jesus' Name // Our Story of The Great Dog Rescue

    What does rescuing two freezing dogs from drowning have to do with discipleship? Well, turns out, for my youngest daughter and I - alot! We were on our way to school when suddenly we spotted a couple of somethings downstream from our bridge. Upon stopping for closer inspection, we realized it was two dogs stuck in the freezing creek waters, clinging for dear life to a ledge of ice.
     You’ve got to hear our story, which I think is pretty amazing. But, it turns out to be about way more than a great rescue. When I asked God what He was trying to show me through our series of events, He spoke into my life in a profound and impactful way.  I think it might just impact you, so - listen in, then I invite you to meditate on this week's discipleship conversation to consider the implications God has for your life.
     Welcome to "Family Discipleship 102" - - - where it’s not just about us and ours; it’s also about making others matter in Jesus’ Name.  The previous conversation in this series "Family Discipleship 101" focusses on Deuteronomy 6:4-7, and now, in this conversation we consider Acts 1:8, where Jesus told His followers to go beyond their immediate relationships and reach out to others to share the Gospel and make disciples. 

    May God use all this to encourage and equip you to disciple those He sends your way!

    Be encouraged! 
    Tosha

    Family Discipleship 101: The Why and How of Discipling the Next Generation

    Family Discipleship 101: The Why and How of Discipling the Next Generation

    Welcome to Family Discipleship 101 - - - a course that isn’t just a class but a lifetime! Whether your kids are big kids or little kids, grownups or toddlers, God wants us to talk about His Word with those He’s entrusted to us. This includes our families, but it also includes others that God brings into our lives. 
    In this week's podcast, I talk about what God’s Word says in Deuteronomy 6:5-7 about the why and how of discipling our families. Turns out, the journey of discipling the next generation is one of the earliest commands in the Bible.  We get to do this around the table and along life’s way. Our conversations can start with something as simple as a single Scripture verse or two, such as this one found in this week’s conversation “A Call to Family Discipleship.”  We invite you to spend a few minutes considering this conversation, in your own personal quiet time and then in discussion with someone you love. 

    Friend, may we encourage you today - - - skip the intimidation and get straight to the conversation. God has so much He wants to do through you in the lives of those He’s entrusted to you!
