Episode 42: Woman, Be Empowered
Too many women are living their lives without knowing their purpose. Too many are living beneath their potential. Many have even lost their voice, their identity, their worth, their uniqueness. You are a unique masterpiece of God your Father. You are a queen in His eyes and you must see yourself likewise. God has given you you a unique assignment that only you can fill but you must first see yourself as He sees you. So, this is a call for you to put your crown back on and be empowered. This is a call for you to go...

Episode 38: How Equipped for Battle Are You?
There's plenty of talk about the armor of God, but that will do us no good if we don't step back from the religious lingo and look at it from an everyday practical perspective. Here I talk about the seven elements of the armor in ways we can actually use them against our adversary, the devil.
Episode 37: Names of Satan. You Must Know Your Enemy.
Satan wants us to underestimate him. He wants us to be ignorant of how he works. He wants us to live our lives as if he doesn't exist while he takes advantage of our ignorance. That is not what the Word of God says. 2 Corinthians 2;11 tells us not to be ignorant of his devices or he will take advantage of us.
This teaching reviews 12 names of Satan. These names reveal his character and his capabilities. We will do a far better job at overcoming him if we know who he is and how he works.
Episode 36: Lessons from the Soil with Stephanie Ferger
We can learn profound life lessons from anything that God has created. But who would think there are a host of lessons that one could learn from the soil? Yes, dirt! We can learn life-changing lessons from the thing that many think very little of.
Episode 35: God Walks Thru Hardships
We often look at hardship through a negative lens, but we must know that God has a purpose in everything, even what seems most painful to us. Let us not forget that He is a gracious and kind God. His intent is not to harm us us but to bring us to a place of hope. The journey to that place of hope could be the road of hardship. This discussion informs about a journey of hardship that my guest took to a place of hope that not only blessed her, but has and is still blessing many who...
Episode 34: Going Deeper with God
Perhaps you’ve read many books on prayer, have been to many conferences on prayer, and have heard many messages on prayer, yet you are not and have rarely been around many who actually pray. It’s sad to say that there are few people whose very presence carries the fragrance of heaven, whose words release power and conviction, and whose actions point to a living faith in God. You may not even be such a person, but you can. This discussion can get you started.
Episode 33: Creating A Life of Love
We have all felt that awful feeling of rejection, unwanted, left out, or unloved. It is a terrible feeling. The worst part is that feeling unloved diminishes and sometimes even destroy our potential. People who feel loved and valued are more confident. They are more willing to take risks by stepping into unchartered territories. That could be you. This discussion gives insight into how we can develop a life of love.
Episode 32: Bible Talk with Kermit Zarley
This man of God and student and teacher of the Word has a wealth of knowledge. This short dialogue with him gives a glimpse into the depth of information he has to share.
Episode 31: Failing Forward
Failure is not final and failure does not define you. If looked at and experienced from the right perspective, failure can be one of the best teachers. Failure can be a stepping stone, a promotion in the making, a reminder of who God made you to be and much more. Let failure take you to the next level up, not down.
Episode 30: Nuggets for Thought
There is wisdom is the counsel of our mothers. Don't despise the teachings of your mother because of her age. Everything she says can be a nugget for thought even if it's not said as intelligently as you would say it.

God gave us all a creative mind, but some of us are way more creative than others.

Stress is unavoidable in the world we live; therefore, we must find a way to manage stress in a healthy and godly manner. This video shares a simple, yet fully effective way in which we can manage stress. This approach to stress management please God.
Episode 27: Doing Business God's Way
Many of us tend to separate our lives in two parts - secular and spiritual - but there is no such thing. As followers of Christ, everything we do is spiritual. Everything we do should be please to the father and should worship and exalt His name. That includes our social life, our physical life (what we do with and put on our bodies), our financial life, our relationships, and yes our business life. This episode is a quick discussion of how we can do business to the glory of God our Father.

Episode 25: God Healed My Pain. Interview with Jasmine Morgan
Pain deceived me to believe that I was unlovable. Because of all I went through, I believed that not even God loved me.

Do not let pain rob you of the fulfilled life that God has for you. This is my testimony. I hope it blesses you.

Episode 19: Persevere In spite of
When things get difficult, it is easier to quit than to persevere. It is easier to go with the flow at the expense of a higher standard of holiness, but this is a reminder that we must persevere past the noises of life and past the many things that distract us from the deeper things of God. This is a word of encouragement and a gentle reminder that if we persevere, we will be rewarded when the time comes. Perseverance is a choice and it is worth it. Persevere!
Episode 18: Healed Thru Surrender. Interview with Michael Jaquith
It does not matter what you have done in life or how deep in sin you have gone. God can heal you. All He asks is that you surrender to His will. He loves. He wants you healed, and He wants you whole. If God did it for Michael Jaquith, He can certainly do it for you. All you need to do is surrender.
Episode 17: The Self-Scarred Church, Chapter 2: Lack of Vision
Lack of vision, the first of seven self-inflicted wounds to the church is discussed here. Without a vision, ministries will be stagnant, will not grow, will be ineffective, and young people will leave. A church without young people is dying, if not already dead. Vision ignites passion, gives direction, and is not self-serving.

Episode 15: The Self-Scarred Church, Chapter 1: Putting Things In Perspective
The church is the people who worship God. It is not the building and it is not what we do that comprise the church. We are the church. But the church is made up of flawed people with basic needs that we often - knowingly and unknowingly - seek to meet in ungodly ways. When we seek to meet these needs - needs such as emotional safety, belongingness, and esteem - in ungodly ways, we scar the church.
Episode 14: Don't Believe the Lies
Satan is a liar. Jesus said he is the father of lies. Every word that comes out of his mouth is a lie. Even when he uses the Word of God, he lies. When he speaks, when he lies he is speaking out of his character, meaning Satan cannot help but lie. Just like God cannot help but speak truth, Satan cannot help but lie. Learn here how damaging the lies of Satan are and how to combat them.
Episode 13: Listen Sister, You're Not Alone. Interview with Tess Scott
You might have asked God into your heart, but your life is in no way a reflection of the “Join the Jesus Team” brochure. Perhaps you’ve been married and remarried and have raised kids, but never qualified for Mother of the Year. You may even have repented over and over for the same sin, only to find yourself crawling back to God with a face full of tears each time. Listen to how God have used someone just like you. Get reassured here that you are not alone. Be encouraged here. God has already welcomed you back. He has al...
Episode 12: Broken & Redeemed. Interview with John Jarman
With no memory of his childhood until age 12, John did not know how to overcome the pain in his life. When his adult life crumbled around him, he finally reached out for professional help, both emotionally and spiritually. Over the next 10 years, this inner work led John to places he and his counselor would never have expected. This is a moving testimony of the redeeming grace of God. Be blesses!
Episode 11: Do You Know Your Purpose?
You are selected and assigned a unique purpose that only you can fulfill. Life is aimless and meaningless without purpose. Do you know your purpose? Do you know who assigned you your purpose? If you do not know your purpose, do you know who has the answer?
Episode 10: Forgiveness Is A Mandate
The command to forgive comes from the One who is in highest authority. Disobedience to this command comes with a high price. Though difficult for many, the good news is the gracious loving God we serve, gives us all we need to obey this command. Our job is to submit to Him and He will do the rest.
Episode 9: 7 Things God Hates
The Bible in Proverbs 6:16-19 lists 7 specific things that God hates: pride, lying, murder (hate), a wicked heart, quickness to do evil, false witness, and especially sowing discord among brethren. This episode discusses the 7 sins and emphasizes the importance of hating what God hates and loving what He loves. How do we rid ourselves of these sins?
Episode 8: Hurt Is Okay, but...
The church has created a false/hypocritical environment that sends an erroneous nonverbal message that if we show that we are hurt, we are spiritually weak or we don't have faith. In this episode I remind you that we are all humans and if we are injured physically, we hurt. Similarly, if we are injured emotionally we hurt. You get the permission to hurt here but I caution you to deal with the hurt and seek healing from your Heavenly Father so that you do not become unforgiving. Hurt is different from unforgiveness. Hurt is not a sin. It's...

Episode 6: Both Satan and God Have A Plan For You.
The plans that God has for us is not like our plans. His plans for us are far larger and better than any plan we can imagine. But it's not not only God our Father who has a plan for us; our adversary the devil has a plan for us as well. But the plans of God for our lives far supersede the plans of the enemy. This episode addresses how we can co-labor with God to make sure His plans are executed in our lives.
