    Celebrating God's Grace, Renewed

    Celebrating God's Grace, Renewed

    Join host Janet Berrong as she shares about being renewed and living out your God-given purpose.
    *****
    Welcome to Celebrating God's Grace, a Women World Leaders podcast. I'm your host, Janet Berrong. It's an honor for me to be back with you today sharing health, beauty and Jesus. Thank you for joining as we celebrate God's grace in our lives, in this ministry, and in the world. Please join us every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for our podcast, Monday with Empowering Lives with Purpose. Wednesday's the biblical teaching arm of Walking in the Word, and Friday with Celebrating God's Grace. As we here at Women World Leaders gear up for our in person event titled Renew. Just the word renew makes me happy. I think of it as a fresh start. So today I want to talk about being renewed and living out our God given purpose. When we say renew, it means to replace. So renewing our mind means replacing the old way of thinking with a new way. So when you hear renew your mind with the Word of God, it means to replace the old way of thinking with that the Bible says in Romans 12:2 says, "Don't copy the behavior and the customs of this world. But let God transform you into a new person. By changing the way you think. Then you can learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect." I feel this is a great topic and timing for me. It's my birthday month. And it's always a good time for me to evaluate and reflect on life. It might be a good time for you to if you needed to be renewed. I or encourage you today to spend quality time with Jesus. Let Him renew your hearts and minds with his word. A dear loved one reminded me that we will never be as young as we are right now. That time is a valuable commodity that you'll never get back. And to spend it wisely. Wow, how true that is. When you think of it that way. It really makes us think about our purpose and what really matters in life. Every single one of us has a purpose to fulfill in life, something unique that we can only we can accomplish. Sometimes that we if we use our talents and God given gifts to fulfill it will make this world a better place. It is our mark to leave upon this earth in our legacy to live by leave behind for those who follow us. And it is up to us to figure out what the purpose is. The Bible tells us in Psalms 139:13 through 16 that God created in innermost being he knit us together in our mother's womb. We are fearfully and wonderfully made. His works are wonderful. And all the days ordained for us were written in his book before one of them came to be also in Ephesians 2:10 tells us we are God's handiwork created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. The fact that we are breathing and living on this planet tells us that we have a purpose. The Lord has prepared us in advance to do good works. He is not done with you yet if you're still alive. We have been made with a purpose and each one of us have a reason for living. It is our ultimate purpose to bring Him glory with various aspects of our life. Following Christ is the greatest adventure that each one of us will ever have in it's an adventure of life's purpose. The question is, in what way and through what location? Will you live your purpose? Let us pray. Father, we thank you for your love, grace and mercy that you called us to live a full and purposeful life. I pray for everyone listening, that they will have the peace that only you give me your Holy Spirit fall on them today in a special way. In Jesus name I pray, amen. God bless you. Until next time, dear sisters

    Walking in the Word, Control Your Own Destiny

    We each have ultimate control of our destiny. God has given us that gift through His son Jesus Christ. So how do we seize control and end up on the right path? Listen as Julie Jenkins unfolds this important teaching from Matthew 15:1-20 and Mark 7:1-23.
    *****
    Welcome to Walking in the Word, the biblical teaching arm of the Women World Leaders’ podcast. I’m you host, Julie Jenkins. I’m so happy you have joined us today as we study scripture together.
    If you are new to our podcast, besides this, our Wednesday Bible teaching, we have two other weekly offerings for you. On Mondays, Kimberly Hobbs hosts Empowering Lives with Purpose – a 30-minute interview with a different woman of faith who boldly shares her story with the hope of empowering you to live as God has called you.  And on Fridays, we have a team of leaders who share their wisdom and joy from a life spent in pursuit of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in Celebrating God’s Grace.
    If you are new to Women World Leaders’ ministry, our podcast is just a small part of what we do. We also offer prayer for the ups and downs of life, support through social media, fellowship through events, growth through daily devotions, empowerment through leadership development, encouragement through Voice of Truth – our free quarterly magazine, and creative growth and healing through coaching and writing. At Women World Leaders we offer a place to be served and to serve others. We believe that all Christians make up the body of Christ, and together, we can do what God has called us to today. We walk in faith knowing that God will guide us into projects of His creating and bring us the people He has called to grow together as we take on those projects. If you would like to join us, we would love to have you – and we know that God has a place waiting just for you. We are a 501c3 ministry, and as such we are sustained by donations from all over the world. If you would like to find out more about Women World Leaders or to help support the ministry financially, please visit womenworldleaders.com
    But, before you do, you have something more important to do than going to a website. God has called you to this podcast for a purpose. There is something He wants to teach you – so please don’t put Him off. Allow me to pray before we begin that He will guide our learning…
    Dear Most Holy God…we give you this time and we thank you for walking with us as we open the Bible together. Father, we know that every time we open the Bible you have something more to reveal to us, and today is no exception. You have called us together for this time because there is something you want us to know – so I ask that you allow our hearts to be teachable. Holy Spirit, cleanse us of any sin and of any strongholds or beliefs that are not from you, shine a light on YOUR meaning, and let us each leave this teaching with the clarity that we have heard directly from you. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
     
    We are currently walking through the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John chronologically. As we view Jesus’ words, actions, and life, we are asking God to show us what He wants us to learn today. Today’s teaching comes from Matthew chapter 15, verses 1-20 and Mark, chapter 7, verses 1-23.
    When we see Jesus in today’s passage, He is in the throes of ministry. He has gathered His disciples, and as they travel together, He teaches the crowds, the twelve disciples themselves, and groups or individuals that He encounters. We’ve seen people amazed and awed by His teaching, and we’ve seen them turn away. In today’s passage, we see the Pharisees and the teachers of the law band together to come against Jesus as they travel to Him from their home base in Jerusalem. They are on a mission to discredit Jesus. But what they accuse Him of this time, might make us scratch our heads. Let’s begin with Matthew 15:1 from the New Living Translation.

    Kimberly Hobbs  
     Welcome to empowering lives with purpose. And I'm your host, Kimberly Hobbs. I'm the founder of Women world leaders. And we are so glad you decided to join us today, I would love to welcome our guest speaker today, which is Mary Smith. Mary is from Daphne, Alabama. Hi, Mary.
    Mary Smit  
    Hi, ladies. I'm so happy and just blessed to be here with you guys. 
    Kimberly Hobbs  
    Yay! And we're blessed to have you. So today, ladies on this podcast interview, it's our desire to share with you encouragement, stories, and empowerment that will help you to walk into your God given purpose, and dream and think about the things that God has planned for you. He says in Ephesians 210, that we are God's masterpiece. We are created in new and Christ Jesus to do the things that he planned for us long ago. And Philippians 213 says God is working in you. And he's giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him. We are just so excited about that, because it's something to be excited about that the God of the universe wants to use us to do the work that he has called us to do. And that's a privilege and honor, and it's a privilege and honor to be here with you. Ladies, I also want to share that every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Women world leaders brings podcast interviews, not interviews, but we have walking in the word on Wednesday with Julie Jenkins. And we also have journey into joy every Friday with Carrie Christopher. So please join us on those days as well and be blessed. So today a little bit about Mary. Mary is a professional makeup artist. She's a hair stylist wardrobe and set designer as well. And she has worked in over 30 feature films, including mom's night out the War Room, like arrows, and even over calmer. She has been in faith based industry for 15 years. And she believes in helping raise up the next generation to further the gospel. I think that's awesome. And we get to see the end result of movies. But Mary gets to live through the making of these movies, and being on location and working with actors and actresses and these faith based films. Mary, I know you've seen a lot of things. So you've seen spiritual battles. You've seen miracles take place, and many astounding things that are happening on the set of these movies. So let's start here with possibly maybe sharing a story about some of the astounding things that have taken place, maybe one that sticks out in your mind. And you are sharing with me about beauty and brokenness and how that just draws you to to talk about some of these things. Maybe can you share that mixed in this god story that you're going to share with us today?
    Mary Smit  
    Yes, I think it's very appropriate, especially today. I mean, 2020 has just been so hard on so many people. And I think there's a lot of brokenness out in the world. And I was sharing with you earlier that it's something that's kind of been on my mind more than just this year, but this year has been exceptionally hard for me. There's been a lot of brokenness in my life, which I'm sure a lot of ladies can relate to that. There is a beauty and brokenness. I've always kind of been gravitated toward the broken things in this world, whether it's photography and pictures of things that are not perfect, that are broken. Just stories from people that I gravitate toward that are doing, you know great things for God that have these ministries and different things that I you know,

    Celebrating God's Grace, Boundaries in Relationships, Pt. II

    Celebrating God's Grace, Boundaries in Relationships, Pt. II

    This podcast by Cindy Jacob Southworth, an AACC Certified Relationship Coach and part of the Women World Leaders Leadership team, teaches us about why boundaries are important and the symptoms we may suffer when we don’t set and keep boundaries in our relationships.
    ********
    Welcome to Celebrating God’s Grace, a Women World Leaders Podcast. I am your host Cindy Jacob Southworth, an AACC certified relationship coach with Breakwater Ministries and part of the Women World Leaders leadership team, and I am coming to you from Cindy’s Porch. Today I want to talk to you about why boundaries are so important, but first, let’s go to God in prayer.
    Father God, you are a good good Father. Speak to our hearts today about identifying our gifts and talents and using them in a way that is pleasing to you dear Lord. Help us to overcome the roadblocks that keep us from setting boundaries in our relaitonships. Show us your way today Father, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
     
     
    On my previous podcast I talked about setting and keeping Boundaries in Relationships. I want to continue that conversation today to help you understand why boundaries are so important. I want to help you identify symptoms you may be having because you are not setting and keeping healthy boundaries.
     
    “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”  Ephesians 2:10 (NLT)
     
    God will set us on a path according to our gifts and talents. When we know what those gifts and talents are, we don’t have to conform to the pressures around us. We can say “No” to the things that aren’t utilizing our gifts and talents and say “Yes” to the things that do.
     
    When we have boundary problems, it conflicts with the path God has for us for our gifts and talents. A God-given desire becomes our passion.
     
    “In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.”  Romans 12:6-8 (NLT)
     
     
    Functional Symptoms when Boundaries are not kept (check all that apply):
     
    We will often see the following symptoms in a person who is not utilizing their gifts appropriately or setting boundaries so that they can operate in their gifts:
     
    _____   The inability of someone to complete a goal, or task. I lack follow-through.
     
    _____   Extreme disorganization. Boundaries have to do with internal structure. If I don’t have good limits in my life, then I will become very unstructured.
     
    _____   Low energy. This leads to burnout. I’m doing what I’m compelled to do, and not doing what I feel called to do.
     
    _____  Problems of concentration.  An intrusion in my mind – I start to focus, and I just can’t stay there. So many things are taking up space on the inside. There’s no mental space to work.
     
    Perhaps you are doing too many things; this limits your ability to do a few things well. We have to say “no” to the busy so we can say “yes” to our passions.
     
    “You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. ‘For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.’”  2 Corinthians 9:7 (NLT)
     
    You have to say “no” to the good things, so you can do the best things.
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
    Clinical Symptoms of Boundary Problems (check all that apply):
     
    _____   Depression. Hope deferred makes the heart sick.
    _____   A state of loss. We lose a sense of self and we actually feel grief.
    _____   A feeling of resentment. We experience toxic phys

    Walking in the Word, Choosing Jesus

    Walking in the Word, Choosing Jesus

    The crowds had gathered - because the show that Jesus offered was exciting! But with the explanation, the crowd began to thin. You, too, have a choice. How will you respond? (John 6:60-71, Matthew 16:13-20, Mark 8:27-30, Luke 9:18-21)
    ******
    Welcome to Walking in the Word, the biblical teaching arm of the Women World Leaders’ Podcast. My name is Julie Jenkins, and I’m thrilled that you have joined me for our systematic walk through the Bible.
    If you are signed up to receive our Voice of Truth magazine, you should have received the 2nd quarter edition this past week! Although I work on the magazine nearly every day, it is always such a sweet surprise to open my mailbox and see it! A Voice of Truth subscription is free within the continental United States…and we also offer a free digital version for those of you who are not in the United States of for those who prefer to read on your digital device. If you don’t yet receive the magazine, visit our website at womenworldleaders.com where you can subscribe and download this issue or any back issues. There are so many articles I love in Voice of Truth, but one that is near and dear to my heart is Holy Hush by Deborah Watson. Holy Hush is an allegorical story that actually began in the January 2021 edition of Voice of Truth. There are only 3 more installments of this story of young Rebeka…and let me tell you, it is hitting the good part! If you need to catch up, you can “binge read” the story by downloading each edition of the magazine. Trust me, it will be worth it. And as the managing editor of Voice of Truth, I already know the end of the story…and I can tell you that you won’t want to miss it!
    Well…back to the podcast! On this, our Wednesday edition of the Women World Leaders Podcast, we are currently walking through the gospels chronologically as we ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to us what He wants us to know today. Today we will be looking at John 6:60-71, Matthew 16:13-20, Mark 8:27-30, and Luke 9:18-21. Before we begin, let’s pray…
    Dear Most Holy God…we thank you as always for meeting us where we are. God, we know that you see each of us and you love each of us with a pure love that we can’t begin to comprehend. But God…we are here to say that we love you back, and we want to grow and learn from you. Please open our minds and hearts today that we can understand what you have to teach us. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
     
    When we left off with our last teaching from the gospels, Jesus taught the difficult to understand truth that He is the Bread of Life – sent from heaven. You may recall that the crowds gathering around Jesus had been growing bigger and bigger – that was primarily because of what Jesus did – He healed the sick and He fed the masses. He drove out demons. But now He has begun to not just do, but to tell who He is – and His revelation, as we will see, begins to drive people away. Suddenly being a follower of Jesus is not just all fun and games, but it requires something.
    If you are familiar with the Christian faith, you know that what Jesus offers us – life eternal with God – is a FREE gift. That is, it is not something we can earn. But eternal life with God doesn’t just float down on us like rain in a storm. To receive our free gift, we are required to choose to receive it.
    Jesus said He was the Bread of Life – but that bread must be chosen from the world’s smorgasbord that is on laid out in front of us. We must choose the Bread of Life and ingest it into our lives in order to reap its benefits.
    That seems simple. It seems like we would be ridiculous to not accept the stipulation that God requires.
    Here…you can have this house…but you need to take these keys and unlock the door…oh gosh, no, that’s too much work.
    Here…you can have this car…but you have to get in and drive it. … oh, I don’t think so, my foot kind of hurts.
    HERE is your perfect husband…but you have to show up at the

    274. Empowering Lives with Purpose, Interview with Erin Jeffreys

    Guest speaker Erin Jeffreys, marriage coach, fitness coach, and successful entrepreneur, shares her story of grace, restoration, and God's love.
     
    Erin boldly shares about her young marriage in Bible college with two babies, which ended in divorce because of sin. Through eight years of wandering, Erin found God's beautiful path leading her back to restoration to reunite with the husband of her youth who forgave her. They now have a powerful Christ-centered family and minister together.

    Kimberly Hobbs  
    Welcome to empowering lives with purpose. Ladies, we are so glad you are here today. I'm your host, Kimberly Hobbs. I'm the founder of Women world leaders. And I am so happy to have our guests with us today. Erin Jefferys, Erin is from North Carolina. Welcome, Erin. Erin Jeffreys  
    Hey, Kimberly, I'm so excited to be here and just share a little bit of my heart and my story. I'm so glad that God connected us just a few weeks ago, I think it's been recent and so honored to be here. Yeah, Kimberly Hobbs  
    We're honored to have you and just the ladies her story. It's incredible what God has done in this woman's life. So we're talking about restoration today, and God's grace and His love. So we are super, super excited to share this with you today. Our hope ladies through these podcasts is that we are able to strengthen you and encourage you on your walk as you seek out Jesus every day of your life. And Ephesians 2:10 says that we are all a masterpiece we are God's masterpiece created anew in Christ Jesus, to do the very good things that he planned for us long ago. And we believe ladies that each and every one of you have a beautiful purpose. And it's our hope that through listening to these podcasts, that something inside of it is going to touch your heart deeply. And just allow you to act upon what you heard and find out that truth and purpose of what God has for your life. So I want to share a little bit about Erin before we get started. Erin is a world leader. And she helps others to pursue better health physically, spiritually, and relationally. Like she's very successful, and entrepreneurship and she holds certifications as a health coach, as a marriage coach and a former personal trainer. She's getting healthy in every area of her life. And she calls it her jam. Erin and her husband are the founders of family fit ministries, and they're highly requested speakers in the area of marriage, which you're going to hear about today a little about, she's going to bring you into her life a little bit. Aaron speaks boldly regarding the choices that she made to leave her marriage and the church in pursuit of the world. Can any of you relate to that? I know I can't in my life. Yeah, some of us make choices, not always the right choices. But eight years later, God would begin to write a different story in Aaron's life, one of forgiveness and restoration praise him for that. And Aaron is an inspiration to 1000s through her speaking and social media platforms. And we are so happy to have her here today to share what God has done in his grace, restoration in his love for Aaron. So many of us can relate to straying from that steadfast life of obedience, which we once lived. As I said, I, I can relate to that too. I was on the path and feeling like I was that great Christian person until I veered away. And when we talk about restoration, which we're going to talk about today, in God's word, it's synonymous with healing, and repairing or returning to a previous state of being. Psalm 5112 says, Restore to me the joy of my salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit. Aaron, you wandered far from God and your young life at Bible College and as a wife and mom of two sweet little girls who I know you love so much. So can you take us back to those college years when you were that young wife and young mom, what was going on? 
    Erin Jeffreys  
    Yeah, so back it up even a little bit further. I was raised in a wonderful
