5 Lessons from 39 Years of Marriage
00:23:49

Nearly everywhere we go, people ask us how we have managed to make our marriage work through four decades, raising children, the stress of ministry and travel, and the inevitable obstacles that have come our way. While the going hasn’t always been easy, it’s been so worth it as we’ve learned to love each other in each season.

In honor of celebrating our 39th wedding anniversary last week, we sat down to share five lessons from our 39 years of marriage on the podcast.

Some of these lessons we learned the easy way, and some we learned the hard way, but we hope each of these helps you build a marriage that will stand the test of time.

We hope this episode equips you to build a healthy, fun, and thriving marriage!

Imparting Faith & Identity from One Generation to the Next
00:51:28

As parents, we all want our kids to grow up with a solid grasp on faith and an understanding of who they are created to be in Christ. But how do we truly impart this revelation from one generation to the next?

Today on the Conversations podcast, we’re unpacking this question with our oldest and youngest sons, Addison and Arden.

In this episode, we’re sitting down to discuss how one generation can truly instill faith and identity into the next. We’re sharing stories from our own experiences, and while we haven’t done this whole thing perfectly, we hope you’re able to take some lessons from the things we’ve done well (and not so well!), and build a legacy of faith for your family!

We hope this episode equips you to embrace the adventure of life with God as you discover who He created you to be!

Are You Truly a Servant?
00:19:56

As Christians, we are called to live counter to the culture of our day. In our speech, in our homes, in our leadership, in any room we walk into, we are called to live against the grain. But how?

Servanthood.

Yes, you read that right.

If Jesus walked this earth knowing He was God’s Son and the Savior of the world, and still chose to serve others, we can be assured that this principle should apply to our lives today, as well.

Today on the podcast, we’re breaking down what it really looks like to live a life of true servanthood.

Join us as we unpack this timeless, biblical principle, and watch as it begins to change the realities of your everyday life when you truly embrace it.

How to be Unoffendable
00:21:50

In a culture that thrives on contention and conflict, is it truly possible to be unoffendable?

YES!

In Luke 17:1, Jesus tells us, “It’s impossible that no offenses should come.” We see clearly in Scripture that throughout our lives, we will have ample opportunity to take the enemy’s bait and become offended.

But there is another option — we can prepare our hearts and exercise forgiveness so that when an opportunity for offense comes our way, we are prepared to respond in a way that honors God.

But HOW?

This is what we’re unpacking on this week’s podcast! Listen in and find out how to truly become unoffendable!

Read Your Bible (part 2)
00:22:36

Now more than ever, it’s imperative that we, as believers, are reading, meditating on, and living the Word of God — but what we’re seeing more often than not is that Christians are reading their Bibles less and less. Why is that?


Today on the podcast, we are continuing our conversation on the importance of reading Scripture and the practicals of what this looks like on a daily basis. We’re also answering listener questions like...


—Should couples be studying God’s Word together or separately?

—What are the best tools to use when studying the Bible?

—How important is Scripture memorization in our walk with God?

—What does it look like to practically live a life that is truly grounded in God’s Word & truth?

—Do you have a life verse?


We hope this conversation equips you to live a life steeped in the Word of God!

—What does our own daily practice of getting in God’s Word look like?

Modern-Day Discipleship (part 2)
00:22:02

So many believers want to be discipled and disciple others, but have no clue where to start. They feel like discipleship seemed so straightforward in Jesus’s time, but feels overwhelming and confusing today.

Today on the podcast, we want to demystify discipleship and answer your questions about how to practically live out this spiritual principle. We’re answering questions like…

—What role does the local church play in discipleship?

—Is discipleship supposed to be one-on-one or community-based?

—Do you ever mature out of being a disciple?

—How do you know when you’re ready to be a leader and disciple someone else?

—Are you required to obey someone who is discipling you?

We hope this conversation equips you live out discipleship in your day-to-day life!

Modern-Day Discipleship (part 1)
00:22:06

In Matthew 28, Jesus speaks his famous last words, commissioning those with him to go into all the world and make disciples of every nation.

As believers today, we know how important this commission is, but so many people feel stuck when it comes to discipleship in their everyday lives. They want to obey God, but wonder what discipleship actually looks like in the context of today’s culture.

Today on the podcast, we’re unpacking the practicalities on all things discipleship. We’re answering questions like…

—Is discipleship supposed to look the same today as it did in the Bible?

—Can someone who is unmarried disciple someone who is married?

—What are the most effective methods of discipleship?


We hope this conversation equips you to embrace God’s heart for discipleship and walk forward into everything He has for you!

How To Hear God’s Voice (part 2)
00:24:50

So many people want to hear God’s voice, but have no clue there are actually things that can block His voice in their lives. Today we’re unpacking this on the podcast as we continue our conversation on how to hear the voice of God.

In this conversation, we answer questions like:

—What are the different ways God speaks?

—What blocks God’s voice in our lives?

—How does idolatry affect the way we hear God?

More than anything, we want to encourage you: don’t stop speaking to God because you don’t feel like He’s talking to you. God actually wants to speak to you even more than you want to hear from Him!

How To Hear God’s Voice (part 1)
00:20:56

Hearing God’s voice is vital to sustaining a life-giving relationship with Him, but so many Christians have trouble knowing how and what God is speaking.

Today on the podcast we’re tackling this topic head-on, answering questions like:

—Does God speak to everyone?

—What does His voice sound like?

—What does it mean to live in the peace of God?

If you have been trying to follow God without regularly hearing His voice, you’re missing out on a profound aspect of knowing Him. God is a communicator and loves to commune with His children.

We hope you walk away from this conversation knowing that not only does God speak, but He wants to speak to you!

00:42:30

In this episode, we sit down with twin brothers, authors, speakers, and real estate entrepreneurs David and Jason Benham as they share their powerful story of standing for truth amidst a culture so quick to “cancel” those who refuse to conform to the patterns of the world.

In the first part of this two-part conversation, Jason and David share the beginnings of their journey—from their father’s incredible conversion experience and work in the pro-life sphere, to their time as Minor League baseball players, to the beginnings of their careers in real estate, all the way up to the beginnings of talks about a potential reality show with HGTV.

David and Jason share how if “Your theology is not your biography, then your theology is worthless.” Their story illustrates time and time again the power of standing for truth and living it out in the everyday decisions of life.

As you listen to this conversation, we hope you feel challenged to stand for God’s truth in the midst of a culture that increasingly demands compliance.

Why We Need Fervent Prayer in 2020

How to Respond to Authority When You’ve Been Mistreated
00:23:03

For years following the releases of The Bait of Satan and Under Cover, we have been asked the question, “How do you respond to authority when your leader is abusing their place of power and you’re being mistreated?”

In today’s podcast, we dive deep into this topic. We talk about how to differentiate between moments where you simply feel mistreated by a leader and how to respond when you truly are being mistreated. We discuss examples from God’s Word when people faced abusive leadership and the precedent they set for how to respond in situations like these.

As you listen today, we hope you feel equipped and inspired to handle these situations in a way that ultimately brings honor to God!
