The Right There Podcast is a platform for real, raw, sometimes serious, sometimes stupid conversation about everyday life, female friendship, and the journey of faith in two young female adults.
Submission For Beginners, 2.0 | Ep 52
A year ago we sat down to talk about our thoughts on submission. As married Christian women, submission is a topic we encounter daily. So here we are a year later and we still have lots of thoughts (obviously) on this subject!
The world says that submission is bad, which isn't shocking when we look at how it is taught/perceived. We see women standing up bravely for justice and the gospel in scripture but then we are told that submission is just quietly accepting everything that everyone tells us. That is not submission, in fact that is a willful misunderstanding of Christian submission.
Submission in Christian marriage is something wives gladly give. And when it is not gladly given, it's usually because God is using it to prune and sharpen us.
Godly, submissive wives are still called to speak God's truth, to share the gospel, to stand firm on their beliefs, to seek justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God. Submission is a joy and privilege that we freely give. It is not a hinderance to our mission; but a safeguard.
As always, thanks for listening. We greatly appreciate it!
Summertime Sadness | Ep 51
Shock and awe! We uploaded a podcast. 2020 is weird and busy, and that's exactly what we talk about in this episode.
Busyness is a subject that is close to our hearts because it is a reality that seems unavoidable in today's world. We all have a million things to do, places to be, people to spend time with, responsibilities to take care of, etc. All these things are necessary & for the most part good to do. But sometimes, when the marathon is over & we no longer have to sprint, we are left with a worn out, empty sort of feeling. A product of a summer full of fun & fellowship could easily lead to a summertime sadness.
What do we do when that happens? We cling to Jesus of course. We rest in Him, we take comfort in His words, and we pray that our need for rest doesn't turn into a sin pattern of laziness, neglect, and anxiety. Will we do this perfectly? No. Do we have a great High Priest who is walking beside us in the lowest of valleys? Yes.
16 Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge.2 I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.”
3 As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight.
4 The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply; their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out or take their names on my lips.
5 The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot.6 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.
7 I bless the Lord who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me.8 I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.
9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure.10 For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol, or let your holy one see corruption.
11 You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Testimony of a Corona Bride | Ep 50
In which we discuss being a Corona Bride with our bff Kate Bradley. We talk of trusting the Lord in times of uncertainty, disappointment, and unmet expectations. As well as the importance of taking every thought captive & staying in the Word every day!
As always, the only conclusion we can ever come to & the only advice we can ever give is run to Scripture in all situations. It is profitable for all things-- even peace during wedding planning!
Moving On From Ministry? | Ep 49
Fresh from a little vacation, we sit down to give some life updates & talk about Tori’s transition out of active ministry with Young Life. Ministry & service are lifelong commands for the believer, but the different seasons of our lives call for different types of ministry/service. There are lots of reasons to move on from one thing & jump into another.
As always, the biggest piece of advice we could ever give is to stay in Scripture & pray without ceasing. The more time spent in God’s word, the more familiar his voice becomes. Biblical discernment is dependent on engaging with Scripture. If you’re struggling with a decision, go to Scripture, spend plenty of time in prayer, & seek the wise counsel of other believers.
“I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:1-2 ESV (this whole chapter is 🙌🏻)

Take A Break | Ep 48
“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.” Isaiah 26:3 ESV
In this week’s episode, we talk about the need to log off of social media every now and then (maybe especially now).
We are told that every good and perfect gift comes from the Father of light & there is no shadow or variation in Him due to change. The world is constantly changing, constantly tempting us to take our eyes off the one who does not change.
In times of grief, in times of confusion, in times of absolute chaos & destruction, we must keep our eyes on our Father. He has promised to restore & make new all the broken things in this world.
When Satan tempts me to despair & tells me of the guilt within, upward I look and see Him there who made an end of all my sin. If you have been tempted to despair, if you have been quick to forget the hope within you, take a break from all the noise, go to a quiet place & nourish your thirsty soul with the Living Water & your hungry heart with the Word that became flesh.
Have you ever had fried chicken? | Ep 47
In which the gals discuss food, eating well, & loving your neighbor through eating—in a world where it’s so easy to not.
Idolizing self & idolizing food is an easy trap to fall into— a trap that we are all certainly guilty of time & again. But it’s always good to take a step back and ask the question: Is my diet becoming a sin problem in my life?
We also talk about a bunch of random other things per usual including “near-death” experiences & power lines. Thanks for listening!!!
