    Reason to Return Series: Sharon Hodde Miller

    Reason to Return Series: Sharon Hodde Miller

    Don't miss this reprise episode with author Sharon Hodde Miller, who is a church planter and mom of three living in North Carolina. She's the author of the new book, "Cost of Control" (which I loved) and also wrote two other books: "Nice" and "Free of Me."
    She's got a Ph.D. and a strong voice online and in person, as she writes, preaches and shares the messages God has given her with people across the country.
    I knew I wanted to ask Sharon to endorse my book right away and was so thankful that she said "yes." Here's what she has to say about "Reason to Return: Why Women Need the Church & the Church Needs Women:"
    "In our current culture, the Church is not known for its virtues. When stories of corruption and scandal seem to emerge every week, it’s no wonder people are staying away. Thankfully, these stories of church failure are not the full picture. In pockets of faithfulness all over the world, God’s people are showing up to be Jesus’ hands and feet, and Ericka is telling this story. While the Church is not perfect, it is still a place of healing and calling, which is why I am so grateful to Ericka for beckoning women home."
    You can see all the endorsements here & order your copy of the book here.
    *Don't miss the freebie bundle you get when you pre-order (including a FREE Audible version of the book when you buy a hard copy!)

    Paige Rien: A Former HGTV Star & the Sober, Faith Journey She Never Expected

    Paige Rien: A Former HGTV Star & the Sober, Faith Journey She Never Expected

    In this episode of the podcast, I speak with Paige Rien, a former HGTV home improvement star and current designer that helps people cultivate and love their homes! Her latest book is Revived & Renovated: Conversations on the Intersection of Home, Faith & Everything in Between.
    I had no idea how much Paige and I had in common when we started this conversation, but when you say "eating disorder" and "sobriety," I'm immediately gonna be your best friend.
    In this conversation, I talk to Paige about what it was like ascending to semi-fame on TV, her struggle with addictions, infertility and converting to Catholicism. I was fascinated by her adult conversion, her many, hard-won years of sobriety from alcohol and how she's built a better life for herself and her family through it all.

    Krystal Parker: President of the Christian Chamber

    Krystal Parker: President of the Christian Chamber

    In this episode, I speak with Krystal Parker, the President of the Florida Christian Chamber. She is passionate about integrating Christian faith into the workplace helping people make wise decisions about their careers and how they spend their money.
    Reminder: Most of spend 8-9 hours a day working. How could we even consider that our faith wouldn't factor in? God is MOVING in the professional workplace in big ways right now. I was fascinated by this conversation, where we discussed how God uses the career place to change hearts, minds and glorify Himself.
    Bonus fun: Krystal attended Harvard Business School and scaled the corporate ladder of a Fortune 200 publicly traded oil and gas company, where she became the youngest executive among a handful of women officers. She is also a single mom who is an inspiration to so many women. I have no doubt you'll love this conversation and be moved and inspired to incorporate your faith more deeply into your work.

RhythmAngel ,

Solid

Ericka is a journalist at heart. Her books and podcasts are well researched and sourced. I highly recommend this channel to those who want a meaty conversation on faith and culture.

Effin HOT! ,

Nope!

Judgmental and not Christian. I won’t be listening to another podcast of hers.

Titania Red ,

Cringey

There are other women- empowering Christian podcasts that don’t insult our intelligence this thoroughly. Unfortunate tone.
