    How Purity Culture & Sex Education Failed Us Miserably with Kristen Miele

    Ep 097 - Purity culture gets a major bad rap amongst millennials who grew up in the church.  I get that. Purity culture had some major pitfalls and did a lot of damage. But, what about public health sex education? What about the sex ed class you took in school? It's time to give both purity culture and sex ed their fair evaluation.

    In today's episode we are chatting with public health expert and founder of Sex Ed Reclaimed, Kristen Miele. She's been in the public health space for over 12 years and has some major concerns.

    8 Reasons I'm Not a Feminist

    8 Reasons I'm Not a Feminist

    Ep. 096 - If you are familiar with our ministry you know that, we created GirlDefined Ministries to help girls “get BACK to God’s design.” As a whole, Christian girls are really struggling to understand what God’s design is for their lives and how to practically live that out.
    In short, we don’t believe feminism is the answer to our womanhood questions.
    Yes, feminism has done some good over the years, but by and large it has left women more confused and unfulfilled than ever before. Why? Because whenever you try to define the creature apart from the Creator, you end up with problems. Feminism is an entire belief system and worldview built by women in an attempt to redefine womanhood.

    Let's jump in to today's episode and unpack 8 reason I'm not a feminist and why you shouldn't be either.

    How Motherhood has Changed our Priorities in Ministry

    How Motherhood has Changed our Priorities in Ministry

    Ep 094 - The two of us found ourselves without children for all of our thirties. That gave us plenty of time to focus on Girl Defined Ministries and all that running a non-profit entails. The past two years changed all of that though. We both became mothers and our lives suddenly looked very different. We wondered, "How can we balance both motherhood and running a ministry?"
     
     It's been a journey of figuring it out. Here's what we've learned so far and how we balance it during this season of motherhood.

    LGBTQ and Same-Sex Attraction with Dr. Rosaria Butterfield

    LGBTQ and Same-Sex Attraction with Dr. Rosaria Butterfield

    Ep. 093 - This wildly popular episode is back for a much needed replay. Dr. Rosaria Butterfield was an English professor at Syracuse University, specializing in queer theory, lobbying for LGBTQ+ groups, was in a committed lesbian relationship and living the life she thought would bring her true happiness. Until the day she was confronted with the true gospel of Jesus Christ. In an effort to prove Christianity wrong, Dr. Rosaria read through the Bible seven times looking for flaws and issues with the Word. 
    The opposite happened though. Through the love of other believers and the power of the Holy Spirit, Rosaria’s heart was changed. In today’s episode, you’ll hear Rosaria’s testimony and the truth of the gospel that set her free and changed her life forever.

Highly Recommend!

I have been so blessed by the GD ministry! All glory to God for the work His Spirit is doing through these lovely sisters and how they have ministered to me in my life. Thank you Kristen & Bethany!

oh helloooo ,

Mind set it out of whack

Since you’re YouTube comments are off (can’t handle people giving you negative criticism). Understand that not everyone on this planet is ever going to agree with your mind set ever. This is the reason why people can’t stand Christians like yourself. You think you’re holier than thou while spewing hatred towards people that don’t follow religion.

NEWS FLASH GOD DOESN’T EXIST! Worshipping a figment of the human imagination. It’s hysterical you two and anyone else obsessed with religion worship something that no one can prove actually was alive or did anything remarkable. Such a joke.

brainwashed

it’s incredibly hilarious to listen to this show and realize people actually believe this garbage.
