Welcome to the (in)courage podcast! Each weekday we meet you right where you are on our website, social media, and podcast as one of our 30 writers shares what’s going on in her everyday life and how God’s right in the middle of it all. They bring their unique experiences -- joys and struggles equally – so that you can feel less alone, and be empowered by the hope Jesus gives. We hope you’ll bring us along with you on your morning walks, driving to the grocery store, waiting in the preschool pickup line, alone in your kitchen, or as you wind down for the evening.

    K. J. Ramsey: When Nothing Makes Sense, It's Time to Listen to Your Body

    K. J. Ramsey: When Nothing Makes Sense, It's Time to Listen to Your Body

    Our descent down the winding road of faith and stress becomes far less scary when we realize two things:
    1) Christ descended farther into darkness than we ever have and He knows the way to rise.
    2) Our bodies were made to walk the whole trail of truth to come back home to peace, connection, and joy.

    Our stress can become a sacred place we walk with Christ.

    Bonus Episode: What Cannot Be Lost, with Melissa Zaldivar

    Bonus Episode: What Cannot Be Lost, with Melissa Zaldivar

    In her new book, What Cannot Be Lost: How Jesus Holds Us Together When Life is Falling Apart, author Melissa Zaldivar talks honestly about losing everything that once defined her and how God used unexpected opportunities, like working at Orchard House, where Louisa May Alcott wrote Little Women, to spark a journey of working through her grief and encountering the all-sufficient love of Christ.

    Bonus Episode: Heart of God, with Kathy Reeg of the Elisabeth Elliot Foundation

    Bonus Episode: Heart of God, with Kathy Reeg of the Elisabeth Elliot Foundation

    In 2021, a piece of writing by Elisabeth Elliot was discovered tucked away in a Word document – it had never been published or seen by anyone. In partnership with the Elisabeth Elliott Foundation, DaySpring is publishing that writing for you in the new book, Heart of God: 31 Days to Discover God’s Love for You.

    Join Becky Keife for a conversation with Kathy Reeg, president of the Elisabeth Elliot Foundation!

    Understanding the depth and reality of God’s love for us is one of the great adventures of the Christian life. A Heart of God: 31 Days to Discover God’s Love for You is a one-month-devotional journey to open your heart and soul to experience God’s character, His intentions, and His great plan for you in your everyday, ordinary life (and this crazy world). You’ll find out how the compassionate hand of God is in your every circumstance, even when you are suffering. May you encounter the unfolding mystery of His infinite layers and His unprecedented love for you right where you are at.

    Holley Gerth: We Make Each Other Better, Braver, Stronger

    Holley Gerth: We Make Each Other Better, Braver, Stronger

    Just show up, share, and listen. Over and over again. Connection is about surrendering my desire to be sought out and instead showing up as a person who is a safe space for others to become who they were created to be.

    Melissa Zaldivar: Put on Your Boots, Show Up, and Care for Someone Who Is Grieving

    When all hope was fading, they carried me and it made all the difference. The Lord doesn't leave us to do these things alone and gives us the gift of one another.

Me too!!!!

Seriously thank you sister is Christ for being raw honest and real. I can feel so alone on most days thinking there’s some thing wrong with me… Hearing your words this morning was like honey to my soul :-)Please remember that you are not alone and the topic of mental health needs to be talked about just as much as the topic of physical health, remember folks they intricately work together as one. God is using you in so many ways… thank you so much for putting that pep back in my step and the inspiration back in my heart to not give up and to love myself fully for whom God made me. I can’t imagine how many others you spoke too today… I can only imagine… :-) So many God winks everywhere love it…love you beautiful ladies… sisters in Christ… keep shining for Jesus. And again I can’t thank you enough for your podcast… every day hitting play is like a breathe of fresh air straight from Jesus.
Peace’Love’Godbless
