    You Don’t Have to Impress to Connect: Kendra Adachi

    You Don’t Have to Impress to Connect: Kendra Adachi

    For many years, writer and self-proclaimed “Lazy Genius” Kendra Adachi struggled with the need to impress, even in the kitchen (after all, Kendra believed, the way we’re loved is through our achievements, right?). But over time, Kendra has learned a few things from her time at the table: you don’t have to impress to connect. Just bring what you have, because you are loved just as you are, no for what you do.
     
    Quotes
    “Eating together is just so deeply human, and it can be fun, it can be thoughtful. It's very disarming. And I just believe that the table is the most alive when it's welcoming.” - Kendra Adachi
     
    “I want there to be a process that anybody can go through to love their kitchen, because it's such a beautiful room to experience, and there's so much good that comes out of it. And I want every person, whether they grow their own food or they only use their kitchen to make coffee, to enjoy being there.” - Kendra Adachi
     
    “I could sense from my own experiences as someone around the table being fed, like, it makes people smile giving someone food that tastes good, that makes them feel welcome, it makes people feel seen and happy. And that is what the connective tissue was for me, where I was like, I want to help people feel this way.” - Kendra Adachi
     
    “Jesus invites us to just share what we have. ‘Just be who you are. Bring Me what you have. And I'm going to make it enough.’” - Kendra Adachi

    Giving Kids a Hope and a Future: Gabrielle Beam

    Giving Kids a Hope and a Future: Gabrielle Beam

    Gabrielle Beam has made it her life’s mission to give children a hope and a future, and she does it through literacy. Gabrielle shares how helping children learn to read (using the Jesus Storybook Bible, no less!) helps them grow into adults who can flourish physically, mentally, and spiritually.


    Quotes
    “If a child is introduced to the love of God and the fact that they have been created in His image and that He has a plan for their lives, a plan to give them a future and a hope, I just love it.” - Gabrielle Beam
    “By using the Bible for us as a primary primer, we get to actually tell them how loved they are in God and who they are and what they can hope for.” - Gabrielle Beam
    “We use the Jesus Storybook Bible to teach [children], because, one, the illustrations are absolutely amazing. I mean, every child can find their image represented within the narratives of the story. And they feel included. And then the way that it is written, I mean, you can't even miss the love of God.” - Gabrielle Beam

    Want Relationships to Flourish? Try Forgiveness: Tim Keller

    Want Relationships to Flourish? Try Forgiveness: Tim Keller

    “Forgiveness is when someone owes you a debt and, instead of making them pay the debt back, you absorb the debt,” says our guest, pastor and theologian Tim Keller. Tim shares why forgiveness is crucial to building and keeping relationships, and how daring to forgive brings the humility and empathy we need to restore the world.



    Quotes
    “The more I sense that I am a sinner forgiven by God, the easier it is to forgive other people. Why? Because I don't feel superior to them. It's very difficult to forgive somebody that you feel vastly superior to. And it's much easier to forgive somebody that you say, ‘Well, you know, I'm a lot like that myself.’” - Tim Keller
    “If you don't know how to forgive, you stay bitter, frankly, and it can just poison your life.” - Tim Keller
    “If you don't forgive in your heart, you actually won't be pursuing justice, you'll be pursuing vengeance. And they are not the same thing.” - Tim Keller
    “Forgiveness is when someone owes you a debt and, instead of making them pay the debt back, you absorb the debt. No one deserves that, yet we cannot live without it. If you are a Christian, you know that your relationship with God is impossible unless God forgives you.” - Tim Keller

    Even When It All Feels Uncertain, God Will Never Forget You: Emily Ley

    Even When It All Feels Uncertain, God Will Never Forget You: Emily Ley

    When the winds of change begin to blow, and everything in our lives seems to be slipping through our fingers, entrepreneur and author Emily Ley reminds us to look at the sunrise. Because every morning, without fail, God will always bring up the sun—and He’ll always love you, too. 




    Quotes
    “Even when the rest of the world is changing really quickly, or we're really anxious or worried about other things, we don't have to be anxious or worried about that. Because God never forgets to bring the sun up, and He's not going to forget about us.” - Emily Ley
    “There have been times in my life where God has taught me there's some things you can't do anything about and you just have to keep putting one foot in front of the other. You just have to keep waking up every morning remembering what's true and what's not true and keep going.” - Emily Ley
    “He's truly showing us who He is. And it doesn't always mean that He's going to fix our problems right away. Sometimes He needs us to walk through them with Him. And then at the end, we can kind of see what He's been working in us.” - Emily Ley

    God Will Get You Through Your Darkest Hour: Michelle Hord

    God Will Get You Through Your Darkest Hour: Michelle Hord

    When TV executive Michelle Hord lost her seven-year-old daughter to an unspeakable tragedy, she didn’t know how she’d ever recover. In her darkest hour, Michelle was reminded of the story of Job, and that God was able to bring hope to a man who had once lost everything—and that, perhaps, she could find a shred of the same hope for herself, too.



    Quotes
    “We all deal with different types of loss and grief. And so I want to say, as my trauma therapist has often said to me, to borrow my confidence that the God that I have trusted and that has helped me on my faith walk is strong and sovereign and can do the same for you in whatever you're facing.” - Michelle Hord
     
    “I went and found literally a little closet space and got on my knees on the floor and said, ‘God, I don't know what I'm about to walk into, but please just give me the strength to handle whatever it is.’” - Michelle Hord
     
    “I never will believe God did this to my daughter. I believe there are evil forces in the universe. But what I know is that God can take what was made for evil and meant for evil and use it for good.” - Michelle Hord
     
    “I saw early on that God was somehow creating these little miracles of light that I couldn't quite see at the time, but that were showing up for other people. And so I tried to stay focused on that.” - Michelle Hord

Sally’s Excellent Interview with Tim Keller on Forgiveness

Sally is an excellent interviewer. In this podcast, Sally speaks with Tim Keller, NY Times best selling author and former senior pastor of Manhattan’s Redeemer Presbyterian Church. In 19 minutes, Tim discusses essential points we all need to know from his latest book, which is on Forgiveness. It is an important topic in our world, especially now, when everything seems so fractured. I hope you listen and then share with everyone you know.
