Most of us spend our lives avoiding pain at every turn, so when we do experience it, it can send us into a tailspin. We can begin to question why God even allows it, why He doesn’t stop it, and if we can really trust Him in it.

Well, bestselling authors and pastors of Fellowship Church, Ed and Lisa Young, know the kind of pain most of us hope never to experience—the death of a child. And on today’s episode, they’ll share how they w...

What does it mean to be blessed? Are Christians automatically entitled to happiness, fulfillment, and perfect peace? Does God’s presence guarantee us emotional ease amidst suffering?

Wow! Those are some very interesting questions, aren’t they?

Well today, you are about to get far more than interesting answers. You are going to be enlightened and inspired as we talk about our expectations of what a life of faith should feel like whe...

Most of us grow up thinking failure is bad. And, let’s face it, it never feels good! Failure—and all the bad feelings that go with it—are real, like unemployment, bankruptcy, and divorce, just to name a few.

Over time though, we might stop thinking we’ve failed at something and instead start believing we are failures. But, according to today’s guest, failure is never final.

Dr. Gregory Jantz is back on the 4:13 to remind us that Go...

According to a survey, 97% of women have at least one “I hate my body” moments in a day. That’s a staggering statistic!

Well, the beauty and diet industry just loves that, and in fact, they work hard to create those moments so you’ll buy their books or products or lies!

But what if we rejected their lies and the false beauty narrative that exists in our culture? What if we embraced the truth about what God says about us and could b...

Today I’m “talking story” with the one and only Karen Kingsbury!

“Talking story” is a phrase I learned in Hawaii, and it’s when you have a casual conversation with someone. You know—hang out, shoot the breeze, and just tell stories.

Well, since Karen is one of the best storytellers I know who also happens to be a #1 New York Times best-selling author, I thought there’s no better person to “talk story” … about story!

We chatted abou...

Anxiety has an amazing ability to spread. It is downright contagious! And if you’re dealing with it, it's likely affecting your people, distracting you in the present, and making you feel like it will define your whole future.

But how do you know if it’s anxiety or just a deep concern for the things you care about?

Well today, author and counselor Sissy Goff will give you three questions to ask yourself, and your answers will help ...

Do you ever have moments when your words get the best of you?

Maybe it’s complaining or yelling when deep down, you really want to be a person who speaks with kindness and grace. Maybe you know how much your words hurt, but you say them anyway because it feels good in the moment. Or maybe you spout off, shut down, or spit out some ugly words without even thinking about it.

Whatever your “maybe” may be, you’re in the right place.

Raising kids who are spiritually, emotionally, and physically healthy is what every parent wants to do, right? But when everyone else seems to be doing it better than we are, it leaves us full of doubt and worry: “Am I doing it right?” “Is what I’ve done enough?” “Is it my fault they’re struggling?”

In comes the mom guilt, mom shame, and mom burnout, which can show up whether you’re surrounded by toddlers or teens, or many years in...

“Suffering has a way of heaving you beyond the shallows of life where your faith feels ankle-deep. It casts you out into the fathomless depths of God.”

These profound words were written by an incredible woman and one of my heroes of the faith, Joni Eareckson Tada, who I’m super pumped to have on the podcast today because if anybody knows about the “I Can” life of Philippians 4:13 … it’s Joni.

If you haven’t heard of her, she surviv...

Deep within each of us is a longing for acceptance, significance, and provision. Ultimately we’re asking, “Will I have enough? Am I enough? And do I matter?”

Well, did you know the answers to all three questions can be found in the temptations of Christ? That’s right!

So today, author Tommy Brown will pull back the curtain on Christ’s temptations to reveal how they represent your greatest needs. And, even better, he’ll give you pra...

When spiritual disappointment casts a shadow on our lives, we can feel so uncertain, ungrounded, and like the light of faith has been overtaken by the dark night of the soul.

But according to today’s guest, Dr. Alicia Britt Chole, the night is not your enemy.

Because even though faith shines best in full sun, it grows depth in the dark. So the night is not just normal, it’s necessary, and it won’t last forever.

Today, Alicia will t...

What do you do when your faith doesn’t seem to be “working” anymore? You’ve said all the right things, done all the right things, and nothing seems to make it better.

Well, my friend, that’s when today’s guest, Ashley Morgan Jackson, invites us to wrestle with God and face Him in our greatest fears, pains, and unanswered questions.

Because within that wrestling, we can find rest. We’re moved from striving to “make it work” through ...
