    Can I Be Satisfied if I Never Have Sex?

    Can I Be Satisfied if I Never Have Sex?

    Ep. 044 - God intentionally created each one of us to be sexual beings. From the beginning of time He made us with sexual desires. Sexual longings. Sexual yearnings. He designed us this way on purpose and for a purpose. He’s not a killjoy in the sky wanting to squash our sexual feelings. He’s a loving Creator who wants to help us steer our affections and desires in the right direction—all for His glory. Out of love, He’s given us beautiful parameters for how to embrace our sexuality in the right ways. He created our sexual design to teach us spiritual truths about Himself.

    He created us with an ache for intimacy to draw us into an authentic relationship with Himself. He created us to be relational because He is relational. He created us to be ultimately and completely satisfied in Him.

    Trusting God with the Twists and Turns of Your Story

    Ep. 42 - Life rarely turns out exactly the way that any of us thought it would. From unexpected loss, to unfulfilled desires, to massive disappointments, life can be really hard. Trusting God through those twists and turns isn't always easy. Many of us struggle to believe that God is good. Many of us question if His ways are really for our best. Many of us want to grab the reigns and trust in ourselves to lead the way instead of trusting God. Ever been there?

    In today's episode, Kristen and Bethany share personally how they've each struggled to trust God with their lives. If you want to know how to thrive exactly where you are right now, this episode is for you.

    Our Christian Dating Love Story with Dav and Bethany

    Our Christian Dating Love Story with Dav and Bethany

    Ep. 041 - It's love story time! Today on the show you're going to hear from Dav and Bethany Beal. They're sharing how they met, fell in love, and eventually got married. Dav and Bethany had many obstacles in their way, mainly being 5 1/2 years apart (with Bethany being older). They met way back in 2011 while Dav was a teenager and Bethany was already in her twenties. Their friendship didn't begin to form until several years from this first meeting.

    Through years of friendship their attraction toward one another eventually grew. Slowly but surely God was weaving their lives together. You don't want to miss the end of this episode either. Dav has a surprise recitation of Shakespeare. It's a good one.
