This podcast believes that vulnerable conversation leads to deeper relationships with others which is why your questions, experiences, doubts and beliefs are welcome here!

Forming and Maintaining Friendships
In this episode, Jessie has her friends Jamie and Maddie on to discuss their experience with friendships post-grad. Finding and upholding friendships can be draining, confusing and even lonely at times. But as we start to learn ourselves and recognize our expectations, we begin to see that communicating those things with friends takes those relationships to deeper levels (or helps you realize it's time to let that friendship go!). We're all about trying to cultivate rich, lasting relationships and we hope that this episode gets you a little bit further on your journey. Thanks for listening!

Adulting: What We Wish We Would Have Known
In this episode, Jessie has her cousin and best friend Virginia on to chat about growing up and the windy road that is adulting. They discuss how they've walked through different things that they weren't prepared for and where they land now. Adulting involves a lot of relearning, unmet expectations, and new responsibilities, so it's not all roses, but the journey is worth it and we are all right where we need to be.

Problems with Purity Culture
Purity Culture refers to the many narratives taught mostly by protestant Christians that advocated complete celibacy before marriage. The narratives also created a hyper focus on sexuality as a key measurement of being quote on quote “right with God”. The way that these narratives were taught and communicated have created an entire culture of people who have been affected by them, both positively and negatively. On this episode, your host Jessie and her friend Kelsey break down the different narratives that came from purity culture and how they have each experienced them.

Homosexuality in the Church
In this episode, Jonathan Bell aka JBell joins Jessie to talk about his specific experience with being a follower of Jesus and being gay. JBell tells his story and some of the positive and negative responses to his sexuality. Jessie and JBell break down what it would look like for the Church to love and support the LGBTQ community, regardless of what their doctrine says. There is a way to bridge the gap when there are differing opinions and that is to greet every person with the same compassion and gentleness that Jesus did and still does.
