    An Ancient Faith Approach to Women in Ministry

    An Ancient Faith Approach to Women in Ministry

    I've been sharing a little about my 3-decade journey of wrestling through my place in ministry. I asked my friend, Fr. Hayden Butler, to come on and lead us about the ancient faith approach to local church leadership, and where women fit into that picture. I have found the ancient faith dialogue to be an important piece of my personal journey, providing helpful boundaries.

    The Truth About Birth Control and Chemical Abortion | 5/25/24 | #179

    The Truth About Birth Control and Chemical Abortion | 5/25/24 | #179

    How "pro-life" do you want to be?

    A key theme on the podcast this year is justice for the pre-born. We are exploring the issue from a variety of different angles. The overturning of Roe hasn't automatically increased safety for the pre-born. Chemical abortions are on the rise. We've asked our friend, OB-GYN Dr. Chris Cirucci to come back on the show and explain the dangers of chemical abortion, as well as the science behind birth control. How do various birth control methods actually work and which ones are compatible with the Christian worldview? Join us for this live discussion.

    Helping Women Find Their Place in the Local Church

    Helping Women Find Their Place in the Local Church

    A couple months ago, I shared a bit about my journey wrestling through my place in ministry. I've asked my friend, Dr. Joe Miller, to come on and lead us through a survey of the New Testament's teaching about local church leadership, and where women fit into that picture.

    The Shell Game of Identifying the Oppressed and Marginalized | 5/18/24 | #178

    The Shell Game of Identifying the Oppressed and Marginalized | 5/18/24 | #178

    Whenever we hear pastors talk about the "marginalized" or the "oppressed," we usually cringe a little inside. A deeply biblical idea has been co-opted by the culture and morphed to mean something completely different. We want to have a public conversation about this confusion and see if we help straighten out what has become a very crooked line by bringing the issues back to God's standards.

    The Rise of the Woke Right | 5/11/24 | #177

    The Rise of the Woke Right | 5/11/24 | #177

    We have been watching the rise of some very....odd....posts on Twitter that sound an awful lot like BLM sounded a few years ago. Only they are on the right. We have been very confused about what to make of these posts. Kevin is coming back on the show to break it all down for us in a way that we (and you!) can understand.

    5 Profiles for Sharing the Faith | Everyday Evangelism, part 9

    5 Profiles for Sharing the Faith | Everyday Evangelism, part 9

    All Christians are called to share the Gospel. But very few of us are naturally comfortable with doing it. In this teaching, I want to help you discover your unique style of sharing the faith, according to the way God has gifted you and your natural personality.

    This teaching is based on insights from the book, Contagious Faith, by Mark Mittelberg. See: https://www.amazon.com/Contagious-Faith-Discover-Natural-Sharing/dp/0310113288

An anchor in a crazy world

This podcast is one of my anchors in the faith. I’m so grateful for Krista and Monique’s dedication to present Biblical teaching in a challenging, faithful, and fun way. This podcast is one of the ways God has strengthened my faith and given me hope and encouragement. Thanks, fam!

Tim Ballard episode is kind of ridiculous

I like the deep dives but to do all that deep diving only to discover some stories have been dramatized to raise more awareness to a real problem and to raise money so more children could be saved…seems like NOT a reason to be as upset as she seems…will give it more episodes but this is kind of a ridiculous episode.

Think Biblically about everything!

This podcast and all the content from Theology Mom/CFBU have been such great resources for me over the past 5 years. Her teachings have helped me and equipped me to think Biblically about so many issues in culture. The best teaching won’t tell you what to think, but show you what Scripture says. Thank you Krista and Monique!
