    Quote
    When you can go through things that will break your heart, but not allow them to break your spirit, when you don't allow something to go from being a life season to a life sentence, that's how you make your soul uncollapsible.
    Takeaways

    Facing trauma and starting over requires strength and faith.

    An uncollapsible soul is one that can endure pain and loss without losing hope or purpose.

    Grief and healing are essential steps in the process of rebuilding after a collapse.

    Community and connection play a crucial role in finding support and healing.

    The Power Of Faith And Community And Ordinary Angels

    The Power Of Faith And Community And Ordinary Angels

    Are you drawn to underdog stories like I am? Have you ever witnessed ordinary people who find themselves in extraordinary circumstances and rise to the occasion? 
    You don’t want to miss out on this episode where I talk to Andy Erwin, producer of the film Ordinary Angels, about the uplifting and emotional film based on this true story. This is a story of a hairdresser who becomes a hero and a friend to a widowed father and his two daughters.
    Andrew and I discuss:

    The shift in faith-based films

    The impact of telling authentic stories

    The criticism and challenges faced by Christian films 

    Friends, we get the scoop on the story behind the film Ordinary Angels and how it came to be. Andrew tells us about the involvement of Dave Matthews and John Berg in championing the project. He also touches on the message of the film, which focuses on finding purpose and the church as a place of hope. 
    I love to see excellence portrayed in faith-based films. That’s why I loved watching Ordinary Angels in theaters, and I hope you go watch it too! If you've seen the film, head on over to Instagram and let’s show Andrew some love. You can use #OrdinaryAngelsMovie and tag me @biancaolthoff and @KingdomStoryCompany
    Love,

    All of us are messy. All of us are desperately in need of redemption and hope. 
    Takeaways

    Faith-based films are experiencing a shift towards more authentic storytelling.

    The film 'Ordinary Angels' was inspired by a true story and championed by Dave Matthews and John Berg.

    The film explores the themes of purpose and the church as a place of hope.

    Christian films should strive for authenticity and not shy away from portraying real-life struggles.

    Ep 144: How To Say Goodbye // Draw The Line Series with Bianca Juarez Olthoff

    Ep 144: How To Say Goodbye // Draw The Line Series with Bianca Juarez Olthoff

    Are there things in your life today that don’t align with your vision of tomorrow? What do you need to leave behind as you move forward into the future that God has for you? 

    It’s hard to let go of things. Trust me, I know. It is important to realize that in order for us to experience personal growth and find spiritual success, we need to have necessary endings in our lives. 

    Boundaries are necessary, and so are endings. That’s why today we will explore:


    The need to manage expectations and investments in our relationships

    The concept of pruning and setting boundaries

    The emotional epidemic of entitlement

    The dangers of enabling others


    If there is a relationship or a situation that is holding you back from reaching your best self, it’s time to let it go. Trust God and His plan for your life.

    If this series has made an impact in your life, share it with me by tagging me @biancaolthoff 

    I Love you, friend,

    B

    Quote

    If somebody says that they love you, but they reject your boundaries, they're not for you.

    Takeaways


    Endings are hard, but they are necessary for growth and spiritual success.

    Setting boundaries is an act of love and self-care.

    Evaluate your expectations and investments in relationships.

    Letting go of relationships and situations that no longer fit your future is essential for personal growth and fulfilling God's plan for your life.

    Ep 143: How To Have Sexual Boundaries // Draw The Line Series with Bianca Juarez Olthoff

    Ep 143: How To Have Sexual Boundaries // Draw The Line Series with Bianca Juarez Olthoff

    Do you find it hard to make sense of the different views on sex in culture? Is it time for you to reevaluate your view of sex? Join me on today’s episode to have an open and honest conversation on… sex.

    Society keeps sending mixed signals on what sex is all about. I want us to discuss the topic of sexual boundaries but from a Biblical perspective. It's high time we redeem the narrative that the enemy has stolen from us! That is why we will explore: 


    God's original, good, and divine design for sex 

    Biblical view of sex vs. Cultural view

    Freedom from sexual shame 


    We all need practical handles on sexual boundaries in marriage and for singles. Because of that, I’m highlighting the importance of respect, communication, accountability, and non-sexual intimacy. 

    Sex was God's idea! He intended it for our good. Don’t let the enemy steal that from you. I want you to know that whatever has happened in your life, you can find forgiveness through Jesus and develop a personal intimate relationship with Him.

    If you found this topic helpful, let me know by tagging me @biancaolthoff 

    Love you friend,

    B

    Boundaries in Sex // Boundary Lines // Bianca Olthoff

    Quote

    I don't want social media. I don't want pop culture. I don't want the ivory tower of academia to define what sex is. No. Sex was God's idea.

    Takeaways


    Sexual boundaries are for our benefit and not a burden.

    Open and honest conversations about sex are necessary in order to break free from shame and cultural narratives.

    In marriage, it is important to have regular communication about sexual expectations and desires.

    For singles, setting personal boundaries and seeking accountability are key to maintaining purity.

    Sex does not guarantee intimacy, and true intimacy is built on emotional and verbal communion.

    Ep 142: How To Have Friendship Boundaries // Draw The Line Series with Bianca Juarez Olthoff

    Ep 142: How To Have Friendship Boundaries // Draw The Line Series with Bianca Juarez Olthoff

    Have you turned your boundary line into a boundary wall? If you find yourself lonely because of unrealistic boundaries, today you can take a sledge hammer and Bring.The.Wall.Down. 

    I want us to have a real talk and address the issues of isolation and loneliness that many people experience. I want to emphasize:


    The importance of community and relationships

    The need for boundaries in friendships 

    The challenges that come with maintaining healthy relationships

    The different levels of friendships

    Friendship is not codependency


    In some cases we can find ourselves looking at our friends and thinking; “what the heck?” That’s because we don’t have a clear definition of what “friend" means and we’ve given access to the wrong people into our friendship circles. I want you to walk away knowing what friendship IS and IS NOT. 

    Remember that true friendship and fulfillment can be found in Jesus.

    Tag me @biancaolthoff and let me know what healthy lines you’ve drawn in your life.

    Love you,

    B

    Ep 141: How To Have Personal Boundaries // Draw The Line Series with Bianca Juarez Olthoff

    Ep 141: How To Have Personal Boundaries // Draw The Line Series with Bianca Juarez Olthoff

    Do you know how to establish healthy boundaries in your life? Are your boundaries clear to you and to others? Today we start a new series on just that!

    This week, I’ll be discussing the importance of drawing clear boundaries and how they can elevate your life. There have been instances where I have allowed my boundaries to be crossed - like a tiny incident I had at an airport. That and other experiences have taught me to be very aware of when my boundaries are being crossed. In this episode, you will walk away knowing:


    The need for clear boundaries

    How God created boundaries to bring order out of chaos

    Consequences for broken boundaries


    We will also explore the different types of boundaries, including physical: sexual, emotional, spiritual, and financial boundaries. Establishing healthy boundaries can lead to personal growth, healthier relationships, and a stronger sense of self.

    I encourage you to evaluate your own boundaries and seek God's guidance in establishing healthy boundaries in your life. Let me know what are some of the healthy boundaries you have established by tagging me @biancaolthoff

    Love,

    B

    Boundaries define who we are and what we are willing to accept.

    Setting and maintaining boundaries requires self-awareness, communication, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Real talk in a loving, Godly way. Straight 🔥🔥!!!

Bianca….. GUUUUURRRLLLL…. I absolutely LOVE your podcast and how you reach, teach, and love people!!! Your podcast is straight talk with a full on dose of reality, Biblical foundation, Univision novela energy, and passion!! I’ve listened to today’s episode twice now, then saved it and shared it with two people… feels like church!! (Turn to two people and say We need Boundaries!) 🤣 I love you and I love what you do!! Keep doing what you do! May God bless you, your marriage, and all your ministries!

Can We be Besties!?

I can’t stop listening! I feel like I’m hangin out with a girlfriend. So much amazing info spilled on this podcast.

I grew up in church. It wasn’t until your preaching brought the Bible to life did I ever look forward to going. You have a true gift. Keep up the good work. ❤️

BMI 14 is medically concerning

I first want to clarify that the rating has little to do with the overall content/theme of this podcast. Rather, it pertains to a piece of concerning info in Episode 134.I hope to get more context of the “BMI 14” that the host mentioned in Episode 134. The host said a friend of hers had a BMI = 14 and the host herself saw it as a goal. BMI 14 is very medically concerning. In the field of eating disorder care, BMI = or < 15 would necessitate immediate hospitalization into a high-acuity inpatient treatment facility. I just felt if someone has that low of BMI, it is almost too severe to be a podcast topic. I am overall a big supporter for the theme and message of this podcast. I just want to point this medically concerning detail out in case someone needs acute care.
