    33. How to overcome the betrayal of one you love

    33. How to overcome the betrayal of one you love

    In today’s episode, we dive into King David’s story, a good example of how he takes his anxiety, fear, and doubts, and works through them by adjusting his focus to God. 
    It’s a POWERFUL example we too can follow! When it comes to dealing with our anxious thoughts, we believe bringing a biblical example is where the most help is!

    Trust God and take a step of faith. Anxiety does not have the final word.

    32. Seeing beyond your painful past into the face of a loving father

    32. Seeing beyond your painful past into the face of a loving father

    *This is a very raw and vulnerable episode with AJ, in which she shares about her childhood trauma. It comes with a trigger warning as it may be sensitive to some audiences.

    Anxiety. 
    Just the word can produce negative feelings, can’t it?
    Well, during the month of August we are starting a new series on the podcast and will be discussing ANXIETY, how to overcome it and how to calm our souls in a chaotic world.


    In today’s very special episode you’ll hear:  
    AJ’s story of her very long journey of healing with God; How to cling to the healing God offers instead of falling back into old  mentalities… and so MUCH MORE.

    There is not a person who has lived who has not felt the bite of anxiety. And yes, that includes Christians. The difference is that as Christians, we have extra weapons to use in the fight and we are promised victory over it.

    In today’s episode, Jen and AJ had a special talk about the LAST fruit of the Spirit: SELF-CONTROL:
    - How sports help explain this fruit of the spirit (Paul uses this earthly example of what's going on in the spiritual realm);

    - How we practice self-control; 

    - The benefits of self-control;


    … and MUCH MORE! 


    Spoiler Alert! Self-control requires effort on our part! But the grace of God is our provision to say no, to live self-controlled, to exercise discipline, and to do it every day.


    Remember: As we abide in Christ, and remain in the vine, these fruits are a result He produces. We don't strive for self-control or patience. We strive to abide in Christ.

    30. The underestimated power of meekness

    Full Show Notes + Journal Cards Freebie: www.sojohub.com/fruit030

    In today’s episode, we are talking about the fruit of the Spirit, GENTLENESS/Meekness. 
    Jen and AJ had a special talk about:

    - Why this fruit is also known as meekness; 
    - What is the biblical definition of meekness (it's not the same as our understanding of the English word!);
    - How the word meekness is closely linked with the word humility! 
    - How humbling and submitting ourselves to all things as being from God is at the root of gentleness. 
    … and MUCH MUCH MORE!

    If you are someone who struggles with understanding the biblical meaning of meekness/gentleness or maybe feels like you just aren’t a gentle person, we encourage you to listen to this week’s episode!

    29. Trusting God's faithfulness and living in confidence

    29. Trusting God's faithfulness and living in confidence

    In today’s episode, Jen and AJ shared:

    - How to remember God’s faithfulness when hard times arise;
    - A personal situation that deeply impacted Jen’s family and her faithfulness;
    - What it means to be faithful; 
    - The beautiful relationship between the promise maker and the promise claimer.
    … and MUCH MUCH MORE!

    It’s a deeper and more serious episode, but necessary. Full of powerful encouragement and takeaways we can start reflecting and bringing to our own lives.

    Oh, and AJ did a little study on how many times each of the fruit of the spirit word is mentioned in the New Testament.
    Go give the episode a listen because the answer is mind-blowing and helps us understand the weight of the word FAITHFULNESS and the weight of God's character and His faithfulness to us.

    Sometimes it’s hard to see God’s faithfulness to us, especially when life goes very, very wrong. 
    Maybe your heart can’t see His faithfulness right now. But he’s been faithful even when we don’t realize it.

    28. How to stop fretting and do good instead

    28. How to stop fretting and do good instead

    In today’s episode, Jen and AJ had a conversation about:
    What does it mean to do good?  How to keep doing good even when there’s evil around; What is it that we're after when we define something as good? Difference between goodness and kindness.

    … and MUCH MUCH MORE! 


    Our challenge today is to listen to the episode and meditate:  “We are given instruction in the Word to do good.  The good I do.. is it based on society’s standards or God’s?”

Jen & AJ are relatable podcast rockstars for Jesus

I’ve known AJ and Jen for about a year through SoJo Academy. Each month, we receive a brand new Bible study and go through it as a group, with weekly live calls. The podcast roughly follows the Bible studies but you definitely don’t need to subscribe to Sojo Academy to follow along. But you should join us! I like that they don’t take themselves too seriously. It’s okay to both laugh and giggle and goof but also love the Lord and dive deep into the Scriptures He has given us. Love you guys! Alison Parker Dillehay

Sacrificial Living

Love this podcast always. Loved the specific focus on sacrificial living. Could so relate to AJ's story of being raised by parents who sacrificially gave to provide Christian education for her. That was my story, too. But, how Jesus gave it ALL for us. So, so grateful! Plus, I love hymns!
