    Satisfied Series Episode 3

    Satisfied Series Episode 3

    In this episode, I get the chance to read ch. 1 of my new book Satisfied called "Longings Met". This is one of my favorite chapters of the book, and one that hits home for anyone- no matter what season of life you find yourself in. 
    I think anyone listening today has a something that they're longing for- a new job, a friend, a home, a spouse, a child, etc. And the reality is, is that even when our longings are met- when we get the job or say "I Do" or read "PREGNANT" on the stick, we will discover that as wonderful as the gift is, it still has challenges and difficulties with it. And we will find ourselves waiting for something else, again. So what do we do with our longings? When they're met, but it's still hard, or when they weren't what we envisioned? When we find ourselves still waiting, still longing. 
    This chapter, and this episode, dives deep into that very thing...hope it encourages you!

    Satisfied Series: Interview with Emilie McCormack

    Satisfied Series: Interview with Emilie McCormack

    Today on the podcast I had the honor of interviewing my good friend Emilie McCormack, mom of 5. She and her husband pastor Reach Church in Kirkland, WA and we often are talking about our passions and callings and what the Spirit is calling us into. I wanted to sit down with her and have her share her wisdom with how we can say yes to what God has for us, stay content in whatever season we find ourselves in, and continue to passionately pursue Jesus within our specific personalities and callings. We talk about comparison and things that sometimes trip us up from doing the very things we're created to do. 
    Satisfied comes out June 15th! Get your copy today wherever books are sold!
    You can find Emilie @emiliemccormack and check out her podcast "This Changed My Life, with Emilie McCormack"

Great Family with so much wisdom and fun

Bless this family. Their love of Jesus and building families is an inspiration and convicting. Jeff talks fast (ha!) but he’s full of wise words and food for thought. Alyssa is so sweet and I love hearing her motherhood stories and tips, as I am a mother of two. They will make you laugh, cry, think, and pray. Thank you, Bethke family!

Jeff is a hypocrite

Jeff I’d a straight up hypocritical Christian. He gives advice on his platforms, but yet will live a different life. He shared once how living with someone before marriage is automatically gonna end in failure. Yes some statistics show that but there are testimonies that disprove that and display God’s Grace is greater than statistics. I shared my testimony and got blocked Jeff. He uses his faith to sell you stuff but can’t even obey “love others as you love yourself “
