Today’s episode features a special guest sitting in to chat with Milena—her good friend, Alia 💛

Join in for a conversation based on Romans 12:2 and what you can do to be transformed by God during your early adulthood and college years.

Hello‌ ‌and‌ ‌thank‌ ‌you‌ ‌for‌ ‌being‌ ‌here,‌ ‌friend!‌ Our‌ ‌objective‌ ‌with‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode‌ ‌was‌ ‌to‌ ‌talk‌ ‌about‌ ‌some‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌most‌ ‌important‌ ‌issues‌ ‌we‌ ‌could‌ ‌possibly‌ ‌discuss,‌ ‌but‌ ‌do‌ ‌so‌ ‌in‌ ‌a‌ ‌way‌ ‌that‌ ‌brings‌ ‌comfort‌ ‌and‌ ‌peace‌ ‌rather‌ ‌than‌ doom‌ ‌and‌ ‌gloom.‌ There’s‌ ‌already‌ ‌enough‌ ‌worry‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌world,‌ ‌and‌ ‌Jesus‌ said,‌ ‌“Who‌ ‌of‌ ‌you‌ ‌by‌ ‌worrying‌ ‌can‌ ‌add‌ ‌a‌ ‌single‌ ‌hour‌ ‌to‌ ‌his‌ ‌life?”‌ Our‌ ‌prayer‌ ‌is‌ ‌that‌ ‌the‌ ‌reality‌ ‌that‌ ‌each‌ ‌of‌ ‌our‌ ‌lives‌ ‌will‌ ‌end‌ ‌one‌ ‌day‌ ‌will‌ ‌sober‌ ‌us‌ ‌and‌ ‌we‌ ‌will‌ ‌ponder‌ ‌the‌ ‌implications‌ ‌of‌ ‌this‌ ‌as‌ ‌Solomon‌ ‌did‌ ‌in‌ ‌Ecclesiastes.‌ Don’t‌ ‌wait‌ ‌to‌ ‌meet‌ ‌the‌ ‌Lord‌ ‌before‌ ‌it’s‌ ‌too‌ ‌late!‌ Reach‌ ‌out‌ ‌and‌ ‌ask‌ ‌Him‌ ‌to‌ ‌reveal‌ ‌Himself‌ ‌to‌ ‌you.‌ There’s‌ ‌no‌ ‌time‌ ‌like‌ ‌the‌ ‌present.‌ God‌ ‌bless!‌ ‌

Dry Seasons and Spiritual Refreshment (With a Special Guest)
5287
This week’s podcast episode focuses on various practical ways to break out of a dry
season spiritually. The important thing to remember as Christians is that we don’t have
to rush God’s timing. Of course we want to feel the Lord’s presence in amazing ways all
the time, but we also trust that there is purpose in the “valleys” and He will use it all for
His glory and our good. If you’ve been wanting to rekindle the fire in your spirit and walk
closer with the Lord, tune in to hear some resources and habits that have helped us
tremendously.

Verse of the Day:
“Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks
before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an
earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire,
but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.”
- 1 Kings 19:11b-12

Leading Your Children to Know Jesus
3645
Greetings and God’s blessings on you, friends! We are super excited to share some thoughts about how we are intentionally raising our children to know the Lord. You may recall we did an episode about whether or not you should indoctrinate your children and this episode builds on that conversation. Once you decide how you and your spouse as a team are going to raise your children, it’s time to put together an intentional strategy to make that plan happen. This episode shares a little bit of our strategy and we hope it helps you as you consider these things in your own life.

Verse of the Day:

Galatians 4:4-7 - “But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.”

Conquering Comparison + MAJOR Compassion Update
4920
You’ve heard us in previous episodes talk about how comparison is the enemy to joy, and due to popular demand, we wanted to revisit this idea. There is a psychological, practical, and of course spiritual element to how and why we compare ourselves to others. Tune in as we unpack comparison more and how you can change your perspective to a healthy viewpoint based on what God’s Word says. Additionally, we have some extremely encouraging news to share from our brothers and sisters at Compassion International. Enjoy!!

4 Lessons We'd Teach Our Younger Selves + Wedding Video Reaction
4335
WOW Y’all! We cannot believe it’s been four years since we stood at the altar before God, each other, and our loved ones to vow our commitment as husband and wife. In one sense, it’s flown by--and in the other, it’s felt like we’ve spent a lifetime together already! In this episode, we wanted to share four lessons we would've taught ourselves four years ago, and also share some details from our wedding day + honeymoon that we’ve never talked about at length before. If you are preparing for marriage or already well into it, we pray this episode encourages you!

Marriage Boundaries
3736
One of the biggest breakthroughs in our relationship as husband and wife has come from setting healthy boundaries in our marriage. When we experienced the reality of setting up a system to protect, prevent, and prosper our relationship, it had a ripple effect on our relationship with our children, family, and friends as well. Of course the ultimate expression of relationship for those of us who belong to the Lord is to be in close fellowship with Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit. If this foundation is unstable, it makes for turbulence and discord in every other relationship. We want to share some lessons we’ve learned along the way in hopes of being a source of encouragement and admonition for those of us who seek to honor God in our relationships. Thank you for being here!

Disciplining Children
3815
Hey friends! Thank you for being here as we share our hearts on some rather important (and debated) philosophies when it comes to disciplining children. We are limited in our direct experience as parents in that our children are very little, but we do have perspective from our childhood that we want to offer as teaching points as well. Our goal is not to tell you what is right and what is wrong, nor how you ought to discipline your own children, but merely to have a discussion and provide our two cents. If we can give you any tools to add to your parenting toolbelt, then our goal will be reached. May God grant you wisdom, patience, and love as you navigate what it means to parent well.

Thank you all for your questions and perspectives for this episode!  We learned a ton and hope you found our discussion beneficial for you if you've ever walked (or are now walking) in a season of anger, frustration, uncertainty, or worry due to postpartum depression.  It is totally possible and normal for fathers to experience the ripple effects of this also, and their feelings should not be stifled.  Press into the Lord Jesus with your spouse and communicate your hearts to one another during a time of peace and clarity of thought.  May the lessons we learned encourage, empower, equip, and and enable you to better serve and love those in your life who may be wrestling with the whirlwind of postpartum emotions that come with being a new parent.  Lord bless!

10 Christian Habits We Do and Don't Subscribe To
4872
Hey y'all!  Thanks for being here.  We had a blast with this episode, and as you can imagine, there's a ton we wanted to unpack as we share some of these things that are deeply important to us.  As a disclaimer, if there is something that we say we don't subscribe to, that doesn't mean we absolutely never do it, rather, we openly acknowledge it as wrong and (by God's grace) fight to rid it from our habitual nature.  In other words, we are not wanting to come off as hypocritical, and instead want to echo Paul's wording in Philippians 3:12 - "Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own."  What we have found to be true in our lives is that when we make the things of God (as revealed to us in His Word) a habit, then we are actually liberated and not restricted by bring Him honor.

Society' Ideas on Masculinity
3209
Hey everyone!  So glad you're here!!  On this episode, we wanted to take an honest look at some of the challenges, struggles, and ideologies that our culture is immersed in regarding what it means to be masculine.  In an age of questioning the past traditions in hopes of a better tomorrow, we who follow Jesus ought to be on the cutting edge of conversations that describe the roles, responsibilities, and philosophy of manliness.  In a world that has perverted and even manipulated what it means to be a man, husband, and father, it is our conviction to turn to the Scriptures as our one and only source of Truth in understanding manhood.  While the world forces husbands to be either dominating or pacifying in their marriage, the Bible gives a tertiary option to be a servant-leader.  While the world tells fathers to either straighten up their kids with harsh beatings or simply sit back and let your child parent YOU, the Word of God says to discipline in love, without provoking your children to anger (or trauma).  We only scratch the surface of the ways society has influenced manhood in this episode, but we hope it serves as a starting point for conversations in your own context.  As always, we are so grateful to God for your love and support!  It is mutual on our end, too.  For the glory of God alone!

What Convicts Us
3247
Hey friends!  This episode gets a little juicy as we open up our hearts--our souls--to you in attempt to express the things that convict us to our core.  It is important to understand where we are coming from when we speak of convictions.  We are Bible-believing followers of Jesus and we choose to trust Him instead of the world as our standard of truth.  That foundation is what we are building on and motivated by in our convictions.  The word "conviction" means more than just a feeling or an opinion.  It is a deep-seated passion that remains constant regardless of popular opinion or societal norms.  We pray this blesses you and encourages boldness in your faith.  Lord bless!

Seeing Halloween Through a Biblical Filter

How should Bible-believing followers of Jesus respond to Halloween? Is it a harmless holiday for candy and costumes, or is there a deeper evil and spiritual darkness behind it? Join us and our mentor, Darry, as we discuss some of the origins and meaning behind Halloween and how the spiritual realm plays a role in this holiday. It’s our prayer that we would handle this topic with grace and truth, as is our goal with everything. We hope you are encouraged by this episode!

60: Should You Indoctrinate Your Children?
3001
Hey y'all!  On this episode, we share some thoughts on what it means to indoctrinate, teach, guide, and discipline your children.  Coming from the Judeo-Christian worldview, the Bible--God's Word--is our guide and ultimate source of absolute truth.  You may not agree with us, and that is okay--just know if you aren't teaching your child as they grow, someone or something WILL teach them.  Our prayer for ourselves and for you all listening is that God would shape and prepare us for the calling to guide and influence the next generation for His glory and purposes.  Lord bless you!

3749
Hey friends!  This week’s episode is one requested by popular demand.  Milena made a video a while back sharing all about a Biblical perspective into wifehood in a practical way.  This week, Jordan and Milena both sit down to discuss what it means to follow Jesus in being a husband.  Servant leadership and self-sacrificial love are some of the major themes that come to mind when looking at husbandhood through the lens of the Bible.  We are so grateful for you tuning in! Lord bless you!

58: Habakkuk: A Prophet for Our Day Part 2 - God's Response
2661
Hey fam!  This week we take a look at the ways in which God responds to Habakkuk's complaints.  It is fascinating to see that the Lord uses all situations--both good and bad--for his grand purposes.  Our prayer for you is that you would be comforted knowing that regardless of your circumstance, God is still sovereign and in control.  We can trust him with every little detail, because he cares about it all.  Let us know what stood out to you during this two part study on Habakkuk and what the Lord revealed to you!

Operation Underground Railroad

We joined the fight against child sex trafficking by supporting collaborative efforts of groups like O.U.R. Rescue.  To find out how you can team up with us, check out the links below:

1. Become a Volunteer. If you are interested in being an O.U.R.

56: Experiencing Poverty (Material, Relational, & Spiritual)
2821
What does it mean to be in poverty?  What do you associate with "being poor"?  There is much Biblical wisdom that addresses not just our physical needs, but our relational and spiritual needs as well.  We can be lacking (impoverished) in many ways, but only Jesus can fulfill us in every way.  We are delighted you are tuning in, and welcome you to partner with us in our calling to bring fulfillment to people's poverty by being the hands and feet of Jesus to the world.

Compassion International

Be a part of releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name at compassion.com/myhouse  (https://www.compassion.com/sponsor_a_child/?referer=602217)

We need your help to reach our goal of raising 1.1 million dollars for the country of Tanzania through Compassion to meet their critical needs due to the impact of covid-19.  With your help and the Lord's intervention, we can continue releasing children and their families from poverty in Jesus' name.

52: The Life-Altering Power of Sponsoring a Child: Okumu's Story
3953
Hey AFM+MH Fam!  We had the honor of sitting down with Okumu and Kelsey, two key players in the fight against poverty through the ministry of Compassion International, and we were amazed to learn so much about the enduring work of Compassion through Okumu's story.
Okumu grew up in eastern Uganda living in unthinkable poverty. Born in 1982, Okumu shares of a childhood spent traveling a painful distance each day in search of water—these same water sources often polluted and shared with livestock. Okumu tells of his earliest memories of going to school barefoot without a lunch, backpack or even a simple textbook in hand.
But in 1991, a 9 year old Okumu would step into a Compassion Center for the first time having been sponsored now by a family halfway around the world. This would be the first time he’d sit in a desk, receive his first Bible, be given a special Christmas present and receive dozens of letters of encouragement from his sponsoring family. In just a few years, Okumu would give his life to Jesus. From a small act of simple compassion, Okumu has escaped the clutches of generational poverty, now grown and training pastors around the world for the work of ministry!
Okumu’s story of growing up in extreme poverty may sound like an anomaly, but in fact nearly 1/2 of the world’s population (more than 3 billion people) live on less than $2.50 a day. As Covid-19 spreads into every country, those living in extreme poverty continue to be the most vulnerable.
And so we’ve asked ourselves “how should we respond to extreme poverty as followers of Jesus?” Join us in this compelling interview as we learn together what small part we can play in making an immense and life-changing impact in the lives of so many across the world.
For more information about Compassion or to sponsor a child, visit Compassion.com/myhouse. Compassion is a child-focused, church-centered organization committed to releasing children from poverty in Jesus name since 1958.  We receive no monetary benefit in this partnership.  It is reward enough to see so many lives changed through the power of the Gospel. 
Additionally, there are many opportunities to give one-time donations to help in other areas of Compassion’s work. Compassion’s survival fund (https://www.compassion.com/help-babies-in-poverty.htm?referer=602217) ensures pregnant mothers will receive the resources they need for a healthy pregnancy with assistance and care throughout the baby’s first year of life. 
Of course there are ways to support Compassion International beyond financial giving, as currently many sponsored children do not receive letters from their sponsors. This is where people like you can step in and write letters of love and encouragement for children who might not receive letters from their sponsors. For more information about writing letters to children go to https://blog.compassion.com/write-to-a-child/ or call 1-800-336-7676.
Okumu is passionate about bringing the gospel to all people, especially those in Africa.  Check out his ministry webpage www.restoreafrica.net to learn more.

51: Live Therapy Session with Our Counselor | Valuing Time with Your Spouse
2995
As we wrap up this series on mental and emotional wellness, we’ve decided in this episode to do something a bit different.  For the past few months now, we’ve been seeing a Christian counselor together.  She’s spectacular!  So we thought to invite her on the show to give you all a peek behind the curtain about what it's like to attend a counseling session.  Laurie shares insights ranging from her work military veterans to young married couples.  Join as we’ll even take you live into the inner workings of an actual counseling session with us, and our hope is that you see there's nothing scary, silly, or shameful about it at all!

49: Still in Process: A Story of Suicide Survival
4591
Where is God in our depression and despair?  How do we live in between the two realities the Bible presents of a "fallen world and fragile body" and "future wholeness and glory?"  On this episode, we sat down with one of our dear friends who knows what it's like to be at the very end of yourself and ready to take your own life; but God caused his story to continue.  Tune in to hear some from-the-heart insight on what it looks like to still be a work in process after surviving suicide and presently battling depression.  If you or a loved one has ever struggled mentally or emotionally, this episode is for you.

48: Choosing Faith Over Fear in the Midst of Uncertainty: Overcoming Worry and Seeing Opportunity
2322
Often we don’t get to choose what happens to us, all we get to choose is what we'll do with it. While no one would have chosen a pandemic or quarantine or social distancing, we do have the hourly decision of what we'll do amidst it. As we stand together in the shadowy uncertainty of Covid-19, in this episode we'll discuss how we can choose hope over worry, faith over fear and rely on God in overcast days.

46: All the Ways We've Communicated All Wrong
3467
Communication is tough right? Doesn't it seem like it should be way easier to communicate with your spouse than it actually is? Join us in this episode as we tell all of the ways we've communicated all wrong. Now along that same road marked with the countless ways we've unproductively argued and fought, we've gotten it right a few times too. We'll giggle a good amount in this episode as we review both our shortcomings and growth together.

45: What We Aspire to Teach Our Children: Managing Emotions | Being the Example | Self Esteem
4503
We are big believers in being intentional in our parenting to the benefit of both children and parents.  In our conversations surrounding mental and emotional wellness, we decided to start off with talking about the next generation:  our children and youth.  Children that don’t know how to express or control their emotions become adults that don’t how to express or control their emotions.  It all starts now.  A formative appreciation for habits from the very beginning.  We're so excited you're joining us for this discussion and welcome your thoughts and comments as we seek more understanding on such a deep topic!

41: Ending the Comparison Trap Part II: A Female Perspective on Shame
1624
When it comes to the comparison trap, shame and envy are often working in cahoots with one another.
In this episode, we’ll look specifically at comparison through the lense of shame. Shame is that feeling that washes over us, making us feel flawed, small and never good enough.
The ladies tackle this episode with a much needed honesty surrounding their own struggle with shame within comparison and the dark side of social media. Often due to social media we are left with a lose-lose, we are either too much of something or not enough.
Here’s a soundbite, “As women, our shame generally centers on our appearance, how people view us and this need to be perceived as ‘having it all together.’ And as if that wasn’t enough, women feel an added pressure to make it all appear effortless”
Join us again as we mobilize to combat comparison together and overthrow lose-lose living.

40: Ending the Comparison Trap
3366
With every scroll, click and swipe, social media has provided us the opportunity to compare ourselves to an airbrushed world. It’s the trap we’re all living in. But what happens when the comparison trap finally does what all traps do? Shuts.
  
In this episode, we’ll uncover the real motivations at work behind comparison and provide you with a practical response to putting an end to envy. Join us as we mobilize to combat comparison together. 
Notes:
- Comparison is the ruin of joy.
- Envy suggests that God hasn't given us enough, and that ultimately God Himself isn't enough.
- Contentment is the end of comparison
Three Ways to Practice Contentment:
1.) Rush to Rejoice
2.) One-up each other in Honor
3.) Move Gratitude towards Giving

37: Uncovering the Will of God Part II
2488
In part I of Uncovering the Will of God, Jordan and Steffen focus in on what exactly we mean by the "will of God" and how the Bible itself is God's will revealed to us.  Still, many of us struggle to apply these principles of God's revealed will to the specific situations we find in our own lives.  This week, Jordan and Milena unpack some ideas to uncovering the concealed will of God as it pertains to our own contexts.
Check out our new Facebook page here to continue the conversation:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/asformeandmyhousepodcast/
Main Takeaway Points:
Patience is the fastest route to the will of God.
Patience is provision.
Patience is productive.
Patience is not passive.

31: Practical Advice for Sharing Your Faith with Your Jewish Friends Featuring Rabbi Glenn
4154
You heard how God transformed him to be a mighty witness for Jesus among Jewish people in the last episode, and now Glenn is back to give some very solid Biblical and experiential wisdom about how you (yes, YOU) can be a bold witness to Jews in your sphere of influence in particular, and to all people in general.  Glenn clarifies 10 myths that many Christians believe when it comes to witnessing to their Jewish friends:
1.) Jewish people must know the Old Testament a lot better than I do.
2.) Don’t most Jewish people believe in God (and Heaven/Hell/Sin)?
3.) Aren’t Jewish people still waiting for the Messiah?
4.) Aren’t Orthodox Jews harder to reach than more secular Jews?
5.) I’m a Gentile, so I’m at a disadvantage trying to reach Jewish people.
6.) With Jewish people shouldn’t you witness from the Old Testament?
7.) I’m afraid if I say the wrong thing, I will offend my Jewish friend.
8.) Before I tell him about Messiah, shouldn’t I gain the friendship of the Jewish person I want to evangelize?
9.) My pastor says Jewish people already have a covenant and can get to Heaven without having to believe in Jesus.
10.) My Jewish friend hates Jews for Jesus – should I avoid that ministry?
It is encouraging to see the fulfillment of God's promises in Scripture come to pass right before our very eyes.  He promised he would keep a remnant of his people for himself that would be preserved throughout all time.  Messianic Jews like Glenn are living proof of that promise, and it is wonderful to see the ministry he is doing among Jews and Gentiles alike.

30: Your Testimony is Powerful Featuring Rabbi Glenn
6192
This week, we sat down with a dear friend of mine named Glenn Harris as he shared his testimony on coming to know Jesus after being raised in a secular Jewish family, and later dabbling in New Age and occult teachings until the Holy Spirit revealed the Truth of Jesus to him.  Glenn is now a Messianic Jew, or a Jew who believes Jesus is the Messiah, and serves as an Associate Rabbi at Congregation Shema Yisrael in Bloomfield, Michigan.  He lives out his testimony in fulfillment of Paul's words in Romans 1:16, "I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus, for it is the power unto salvation; for the Jew first, and then the Gentile."
Glenn's testimony is evidence that the Word of God is living and active and can cut to our very heart and soul to transform our lives (Hebrews 4:12).
To find out more about Glenn's ministry, check out www.shema.com.

24: Resolving Conflict
2506
Arguing and disagreeing are part of the human experience.  Whether you're single, dating, or married, we all have people in our lives with whom we have conflict at one time or another.  Thankfully, Scripture gives us practical insight for conflict resolution, and we can grow to love and understand each other better.  Jordan and Milena offer a few thoughts on how to successfully seek understanding among one another from their personal experience. They are:
All conflict stems from miscommunication.
Disagreement with kindness is healthy.
Pray the Scriptures with and for each other.

23: Questions to Ponder For Major Life Decisions
2493
Its true what they say: You're either in the middle of a big decision, about to to make a bid decision, or just made a big decision. Whichever you fall under, we want to ask some questions that we think would be helpful to consider together as you move towards understanding God's will and your desire better. The Bible says God's word is a lamp to our feet and a light for our path (Psalm 119:105). It's our hope and prayer you meet every challenging decision with Scripture to guide you along the journey of life. Blessings!

19: Back From Our Sabbatical: What God Revealed to Us
2356
We had an incredible getaway last week, and we are so grateful for all that God showed us along the journey.  If we can encourage you to do anything from this week's episode, it would be to retreat from the chaos and day to day stressors (just as Jesus did several times) and connect with God through the Holy Spirit and His Word.  In a world where we all run on empty so often, it is more important now than ever to hit the "pause" button and commune with the Lord in peace.  We pray for each of you listening to encounter the Lord in amazing ways as you seek to honor him with your time and habits.

18: Taking a Sabbatical
2109
We all know vacations are essential to resting, recharging, and relaxing from the grind of work--but even vacationing can bring stress and anxiety with so many things to plan and places to go.  On this episode, we are talking about a trip we are taking as a family (dogs included!) around the beautiful state of Michigan.  Partially because we only get about 3 months of nice weather during the year, but mostly because we are taking a sabbatical (or spiritual retreat) to get away for a bit and hear from God on what his will is for us in the weeks and months ahead.  If you are contemplating some major life shifts--whether it be a job change, moving across the country, or stepping into a new role as a spouse or parent--we highly recommend retreating for at least a couple days to get away and clear your head for God to bring you truth from his word.  We will be sharing some of the insights we learn on next week's episode, so stay tuned!

17: Doing vs Being: The Story of Mary and Martha
2185
In this episode, we focus on two tendencies we all have as people:  There are those who are "doers" (Martha) and those who are "be-ers" (Mary).  Think to yourself what you would do if Jesus told you he was coming over for dinner tonight.  What would be your first thought?  Would you scrub every inch of your house?  Put away the monster pile of laundry in your room?  Prepare the most scrumptious feast anyone has ever had?... Or would you simply leave all that on hold and just spend time with the Lord? Jesus makes it clear in Luke 10:38-42 which response brings him delight.  Mary chose to sit at the Lord's feet and spend quality time with him.  Martha was "distracted...anxious, and troubled about many things."  Serving absolutely has it's place in the life of the Christian, but if it's done with the wrong heart and motives, it is no good at all.  The simple act of being present in the moment and enjoying fellowship with people is what matters most.  Worry less about doing, and focus more on being.

14: Being in a Slump
2443
Guys.  This is probably the most transparent episode we've done because we are in the midst of going through a slump currently.  I'm sure you'd agree its far better to be open and honest about life when you go through certain seasons instead of putting on a mask pretending everything is okay, because the more we let our walls down, the more God can use our situation to be a testimony of his goodness.  James 5:16 tells us to confess our sins to one another and pray for each other so that we may be healed.  If you're in the midst of a valley/slump/rut in life, know that you are not alone--the Lord will never leave or forsake you (Hebrews 13:5).  Trust in him and seek him in the trials.  He will bring you peace in spite of the chaos.

13: Following Jesus in High School & College

Real Life versus Fiction
"Nothing is so beautiful and wonderful, nothing is so continually fresh and surprising, so full of sweet and perpetual ecstacy, as the good.
No desert is so dreary, monotonous, and boring as evil.
This is the truth about authentic good and evil.
With fictional good and evil it is the other way round. Fictional good is boring and flat, while fictional evil is varied and intriguing, attractive, profound, and full of charm."

12: Biblical Advice on Parenting
3761
As new parents ourselves, we are constantly seeking wisdom and advice from those who have been discipling and parenting their children much longer than us. It just so happens that our church is in the middle of a series on relationships, and this past week was all about parents and children! We utilized our sermon notes from the message preached by Pastor Brad Powell, because we thought what he said was too good not to share. Whether you’re a new parent like us, been a parent for a long time, or are even in a position of authority and influence over younger people, this message is for you. We also encourage you to listen to Brad’s entire message because he does such a great job communicating the truth of the Bible as it applies to parenting. Here’s the link to the full message:

11: A Discussion on Evolution and Creation
4353
We asked and you answered... In this week’s episode, we take a look at some of the science and evidence supporting the case for Creation and the Genesis account. For the most part, society seems to accept the notion of macro-evolution because that is what the scientific community at large is promoting. Is there an agenda to all this? Is the evidence really there to support kinds changing into other kinds? Our youth today are naturally skeptical and tend to question everything. I mean, can you blame them? We live in a world of “fake news” and Face Tune; Photoshop and Instagram filters. It is GOOD to question what you’re taught and never just simply take someone’s word for it (Acts 17:11).Also, back by popular demand is our dear friend and mentor, Darry Nagel. Tune in as we take somewhat of a cursory tour of some of the questions evolution can not answer—such as, “How does something come from nothing?” and “How does life come from non-life (abiogenesis)?” These cannot be explained by natural means—but the Bible has provided answers to these questions and more (that are backed up and confirmed by science) all along.

10: Our First Date
2642
***CRINGE WARNING*** Our first date story was nothing short of awkward with a little fun and silliness mixed in, so pretty much exactly what you'd expect.  Even though it's been nearly 7 years, we both remember the day like it was yesterday.  It's crazy how vivid memories can be when a significant life event happens.  If you're dating or actively seeking a potential mate, we hope this episode encourages you that there are still people out there who are committed to serving the Lord while in a dating relationship.  Don't settle or compromise your God-honoring convictions for any human relationship!  Examine the Faith, Family, and Physical Appearance (least important but still valid) of the other person and see how it aligns with what you seek in a God-fearing spouse.

If you're like every other follower of Jesus, you've felt unqualified to share the gospel with your friends, family, or even strangers at some point in your life.  We hope this episode serves to give you some insight and practical tools to equip you to be bold in sharing the truth of Jesus Christ.  Whether you are a new Christian or have been walking with Jesus for decades, the Bible calls us to preach the good news to all the world and to do so with boldness.  Your personality type and head-knowledge have nothing to do with being obedient to what God has called you to do.  Trust Him when he prompts you to be bold in your witness.

This week’s episode hits home with us for several reasons. Being that so much of our livelihood and work comes from social media, it is hard at times to know where that happy medium of healthy social media consumption lies. Perhaps you’ve felt the toxic effects of social media in your life—whether deliberately or subconsciously. Maybe you’ve seen the great potential and purposes it can serve as an encouragement in your life or others. Still, maybe you’ve experienced a combination of good and bad. Regardless of your interaction with social media, there is no doubt it has influenced each of us in one way or another. We hope you find our discussion on this episode sobering and thought-provoking as you figure out how to make the best use of your time with social media.

6: The Truth About Easter
3864
This might come as a surprise to you, but Easter is actually not all about bunnies and chocolate. In reality, Easter is the celebration of the greatest event in the history of the world—Jesus’ resurrection. In this special edition episode, we are joined by our friend and mentor, Darry Nagel, who has taught us not only what the Bible says, but how to study it for ourselves. Darry shares the true story of Easter from a Biblical perspective, and as always, brings it full-circle back to the Gospel. This Easter, we pray you discover the true meaning of the holiday, and enter into relationship with the God who conquered death on the cross 2,000 years ago.

2933
We've all heard the cliche saying, "God has a wonderful plan for your life," but if we're honest, most of the day-to-day, mundane tasks of life don't seem all that "wonderful."  In this episode, it's our hope to effectively share what it means to truly understand God's will for each and every one of us, so that you can walk in the joy of the Lord regardless of what you do.  While society puts money, power, and fame on the highest pedestals of success, the Christian worldview seeks to make relationship with Christ foundational, "so that in everything he might be preeminent."
