Inspired by Olivia's example, Christie now embraces her role as a stepmom herself, pouring love and encouragement into her stepchildren's lives. Recognizing the challenges that come with blended families, Christie and her father have launched a ministry called "Blended Not Broken." Through this initiative, they aim to provide resources and support for blended families, helping them navigate the complexities and create a thriving, united household. Throughout the episode, both Alita and Christie offer valuable insights and practical advice for women seeking to mentor and empower others. They emphasize the importance of prayer, being a student of the people we mentor, and creating intentional moments of connection. They also encourage women to step into their calling without fear or worry, trusting that God will guide their paths.

    A Blunt Awakening | Alita Reynolds & Ryan McGraw

    In this episode, host Alita Reynolds had the privilege of interviewing Ryan McGraw, a guest with a powerful faith story. Ryan, who is currently working at NetWell, shared his journey of coming to know the Lord later in life and the impact it has had on his perspective, relationships, and career.

    Ryan's Faith Journey: Ryan grew up without a strong religious background, but he always felt a calling from God. However, it took him some time to open the door and fully embrace his faith. He shared how a personal trainer who had strong faith and persistent conversations planted seeds in Ryan's heart and led him to open the door and embark on a life-changing journey with God.

    The Impact of Faith: Once Ryan started his relationship with Jesus, his life took a transformative turn. He gained a deeper understanding of his priorities and the impact he wanted to have on others. Ryan's own experience of growing up in a broken family and reconnecting with his earthly father through his faith allowed him to extend forgiveness and find peace. This influenced his relationships, career choices, and how he wanted to raise his own family.

    NetWell: A Community of Faith: Ryan also discussed his work at NetWell, a healthcare sharing ministry. NetWell brings together like-minded individuals who share medical expenses and support one another in times of need. Inspired by the early church's concept of caring for one another, NetWell fosters a sense of community, prayer, and holistic support for its members.

    Ryan McGraw's faith journey and his work at NetWell exemplify the power of faith, family, and community. His story serves as a reminder to be intentional in our relationships, to invest in others, and to seek opportunities to support and encourage those around us. Through his experiences, Ryan demonstrates the transformative impact of faith and the importance of extending love and care to others, just as God has done for us.

    Overcoming Worry | Alita Reynolds & Gari Meacham

    Overcoming Worry | Alita Reynolds & Gari Meacham

    Overview:

    Worry is a common experience that many people face in their lives. It can consume our thoughts, drain our energy, and hinder our ability to live in the present moment. However, there is a way to transform this negative emotion into something positive and empowering. In this show episode titled "Overcoming Worry," our friend and guest, Gary Meacham, shares her journey of overcoming worry and finding a new perspective.

     

    Gari Meacham is supportive and a treasured friend. She offers guidance and points others toward Jesus when they struggle with worry. Gary runs a ministry and is a gift to those she serves. Gary admits that she has struggled with worry, which she finds embarrassing, considering she has written books on the topic. She shares that she used to confuse praying with worrying, merely adding God's words at the beginning and end of her worries. However, she had a realization and began to understand that true prayer involves belief and trust in God rather than being consumed by worry.

     

    The message of turning worry into a vision is powerful and applicable to anyone who struggles with worry. It reminds us that worry is a natural response to challenging situations but doesn't have to define our lives. By shifting our focus from fear and anxiety to hope and faith, we can transform our worries into a vision for a better future.

     

    Gary Meacham's journey of overcoming worry serves as an inspiration for others facing similar struggles. Through her story, we learn that shifting our perspective and trusting God's plan for our lives is possible. By envisioning a positive future and letting go of worry, we can find peace and live a life free from anxiety. We hope this episode gives you the inspiration and courage to give all your worries to Jesus. 

     

    I am wildly cheering you on,

     

    🤍Alita 🤍

    Baby Steps Towards Freedom | Alita Reynolds & Jill Monaco

    Baby Steps Towards Freedom | Alita Reynolds & Jill Monaco

    Overview

    Jill Monaco, who has found true freedom in Jesus, discusses discovering our identity in Christ. Being free isn't just about being free from addiction, abuse, or anxiety but about who we were created to be. It's about finding our true identity in Christ and taking control of our fear with a focus on the finished work of Christ. Monaco emphasizes that the mind of Christ sees us as a finished work and who we were supposed to be.

     

    I am so excited to share the latest episode of our show with you. In this episode, we had the pleasure of speaking with Jill Monaco, a life coach and author passionate about helping people discover who God made them to be. Here are three takeaways from our conversation:

     


    Life coaching is so much more than just setting goals. Jill explained that coaching is about listening to what the client wants to get out of the session and helping them hear God to figure out the answers to their questions. It's about unveiling the lies they believe and discovering the areas of their life they're passionate about.

     


    Cultivating a relationship with God is key to being able to give His love away to others. Jill emphasized the importance of being in His presence and receiving everything He has for us so we can give it to others. We can only give away what we have, so it's essential to continually receive from Him.

     


    Jill's book, "The Freedom Coach Model," can help readers encounter the presence of God and find freedom in Jesus. If you're looking for a resource to help you discover who God made you to be, this book is a great place to start.

     

    Timestamp Points to Listen for:

    [00:01:26] Finding true identity in Christ.

    [00:04:12] Finding freedom from sin.

    [00:07:55] Lies we believe.

    [00:11:42] Playful relationship with God.

    [00:14:42] Life coaching explained.

    [00:18:20] Reporting abuse was difficult.

    [00:21:58] Trauma stored in the body.

    [00:25:13] Forgiveness and Receiving Love.

    [00:29:00] Love is the key.

    [00:32:48] Knowing God and finding peace.

     

    This conversation is inspiring as well as thought-provoking. I highly recommend giving this episode a listen. Thank you for tuning in and supporting our show as you grow your relationship with Jesus. 



    I am wildly cheering you on,

    Discovering God in a Fresh Way | Alita Reynolds & Janet Paolicelli

    Discovering God in a Fresh Way | Alita Reynolds & Janet Paolicelli

    In life, we all face difficulties and challenges that can shake our faith and make us question our beliefs. Janet Paolicelli shares one such experience in today's show. Janet describes a betrayal she and her family went through with their church leaders, an experience that shattered her trust and made her question her faith. However, instead of giving up on her beliefs, Janet embarked on a journey to find God in this difficult time.

    Janet's story resonates with many of us who have faced similar challenges within our faith communities. We often look up to church leaders and expect them to represent Christ. When they fail us or act in ways that contradict the teachings of the Bible, it can be deeply unsettling. Janet's experience highlights the importance of not placing our faith solely in the hands of others but seeking a personal relationship with God.

    Janet's experience highlights habits' significant role in shaping our relationship with God. By prioritizing time in God's word and seeking His presence throughout the day, we can deepen our understanding of His character and align ourselves with His will. Janet's journey serves as a reminder that our faith should not be dependent on external factors or the actions of others but on our commitment to cultivate a close and continuous relationship with God. As we develop these habits, we open ourselves to a deeper experience of God's presence and guidance.

    I am wildly cheering you on,

     

    🤍Alita 🤍
