    Diving Deeper for Thanksgiving

    Diving Deeper for Thanksgiving

    She asked me to close my eyes and see if I could picture Jesus to which I thought was a little odd, but for the sake of going with the flow and because I was desperate to seek his guidance in my life at the time I followed her instructions. I closed my eyes. She let probably about a minute pass and asked what I saw. Keeping my eyes closed I told her I didn’t know if what I was seeing was right and she assured me there wasn’t any pressure or expectation to see a certain thing or image. So I pressed in a little deeper and asked Jesus where he was. Then two very strong impressions came to me… (TUNE IN FOR THE FULL STORY THIS WEEK AND A FUN EXERCISE TO TRY)



    I believe with every ounce of my being Jesus is showing up in people’s dreams and quiet times. I also believe he has a lot more to say to us than we think and he is continuously pursuing our hearts. We just have to intentionally seek Him out, so today, I want to try something with you for Thanksgiving and for your walk with God. I’m excited to see how God encourages you this week so tune into the show for some practical and tangible ways to dive deeper with God and being in the present moment of THANKS….



    If you happen to participate in today’s exercise, will you let me know? I just KNOW God cannot wait to meet with you and I’m excited for you so send me a DM or leave a comment of how your quiet time goes and if you had any epiphanies or neat moments!

    Heidi Falletta - ONLY God Could’ve Done This

    Heidi Falletta - ONLY God Could’ve Done This

    IF you haven’t heard by now, I just released a YouVersion daily devotional plan that’s available for you to jump into that really walks through The Places Between regardless what phase of life or age you are. Its called STAY IN THE STORY and you can dive in at any time for FREE by clicking HERE today.

    //

    As we dive in to our next guest I’m excited to get to share yet another week of miraculous God-Ordained working behind the scenes to gloriously show up and show off stories. Watching this story unfold was wild in real time and I look back to remember the creativity and faithfulness of God in this story; so I can’t wait to share it with you today.



    She wanted to be a missionary & move to Africa. She always wanted to adopt. He was staying put in the US but didn’t want to adopt and it would ONLY BE A GOD THING to have him divinely orchestrate the story of Heidi and Chris… I can’t wait for you to tune in.



    Along the journey of our friendship, I loved how I’ve learned from Heidi. She taught me about inviting God into the process of “it doesn’t have to always look pretty and we get to invite him into the ugly parts of our story, but we can trust that he’s a good father and he has immeasurably more than all we could ask or imagine planned - And Part of Heidi’s story exemplifies this so well. . .



    I'm so honored to have gotten to see some miraculous moments in Heidi’s story come to life and we’ve got a treat for you to listen to today. She’s wise beyond her years. Her words oftentimes came at just the perfect time my soul needed encouragement and I’m so thrilled to get to share some of her wisdom with you today. I pray her story is just evidence of His goodness and faithfulness that is available for you today too. This is where you can say: “I want that Too, Lord.”



    Heidi Falletta has been in full time ministry for 19 years. She has worked in missions, the local church and in social work settings. Her heart is to see people know God and not get distracted by the false images that many believers project. She wants to see God impact the lives of those with whom she interacts for His glory and their benefit, and in my observation of her life, she certainly has impacted many.



    Hope you enjoy today’s convo with my dear friend, Heidi.

    Esther Marie - Single Shouldn't Suck

    Esther Marie - Single Shouldn't Suck

    Esther Marie is passionate about helping people create a life of adventure while discovering their full potential. She is an author, founder of Fearless Co., an entrepreneur + surfer. You can catch Esther riding waves near her home in California or playing with her nieces + nephews.

    As Founder of Fearless Co., Esther talks about how they create resources for people to help them overcome fear! They have a couple of e-courses, devotionals that help people navigate different areas of life through adventures and more! In addition to Fearless Co, two books have been released to help equip individuals in life. Fearless Girl and Unhindered by Fear (2nd Edition) is broken into daily doses, or snapshots, through parables of facing our fears and how we can get past the lies we’ve been believing, how we outgrow them, and then how we conquer them. They even created an e-course all about facing your fears and achieving your dreams.

    As the conversation continues we dive into talking about the book that will be released this fall: SINGLE SHOULDN’T SUCK. As Esther says so wonderfully in an excerpt from her YouVersion reading plan: “Singleness is not a throw-away season. It's an epic-once-in-a-lifetime-live-your-best-freaking-life adventure. It's an incubator for self-discovery, self-love, and intentional community. It's aloneness with God and focused attention on building authentic faith.” And I couldn’t agree more!

    We also had a chance to talk about Esther’s experience with Missions Me, a powerful organization that produces exciting and impactful team missions experiences. They’re doing incredible things including recently wrapped 1DayLA featuring Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper and more.

    And as we wrapped the conversation, we talked about the Faithfulness of God! If this is something you’re struggling to believe for you’ve GOT to listen to the very end. Esther articulates so beautifully the faithfulness of God and the journey He has us on, including just how truly good He is! 

    Learn more about Esther, the journey she’s on and get her book coming out soon on Instagram at @Estess OR her website at EstherMarie.org. Last but not least, access her YouVersion devotional called Single Shouldn’t Suck until her book is released later this fall!

    EPPIC - Change of Perspective

    EPPIC - Change of Perspective

    Thrilled to have Eppic on The Places Between this week. Most of the world would know Eppic as a Rapper. He started his career in 2010 by posting various original songs and collaborations with other artists for his original songs and hasn’t looked back. Currently based in Nashville, Tennessee, Eppic spent many years in Colorado as well as Los Angeles, California. His recent releases include “Madison” and “3:30” along a long list of top songs:
    “Hide and Seek”
    “Never Cease to Amaze Me” with @jacquelynwalters,
    “By No Means” with @lindseystirling
    and more…

    As a friend with utmost admiration for his talent and craft, I’ve gotten to see words on a page come to life as Eppic has addressed some difficult subjects of life in the most brilliant and creative of ways.

    From subjects of fame and culture to the more difficult topics of depression, human trafficking, abuse and more; much of Eppic’s music has a unique way of drawing the listener in and challenging them to shift their mindset, see things from a new lens or event take action in being part of the difference. If you haven’t looked him up before, you can easily find him on Instagram at @eppicinvasion or Spotify

Michelle Spadafora

I was so excited when Michelle posted she would be a guest. I found her Faithful Workouts web page searching for a Christian fitness program. Now I'm bringing her program to my church! The podcast was awesome and I feel Michelle is more of a friend than just someone I follow to exercise. A mentor indeed. ps I'm older than she is and her dvds and streaming posts are the best and designed for anyone👟🙏🏽
