Are you comforted by the Church? Are you irritated by the Church? Does the thought of walking into those doors on a Sunday morning bring you peace, or does it bring you anxiety? Maybe you've been hurt by the Church or people who attend your Church. 

Societal pressures, frustration caused by bureaucracy and abuse within churches, and the negative perception of institutions today result in pain and confusion around the idea of "churc...

Sometimes life is unfair and we wait for God to work things out. 

The life story of Joseph is one of the most beloved and chronicled in the Bible. It's a story of broken dreams and impossible circumstances, of family conflict and unfair treatment. It's a story of the power and necessity of letting God's love and forgiveness lead.

Joseph waited for twenty years for God's plan to unfold. Over and over as we read his story we hear how...

Sometimes our faith walk is compared to a race, but as we get bogged down with the struggles and challenges of life, we find ourselves limping, and most days, we sense that the Lord is carrying us and holding us up as we limp through life. 

In this episode, Michelle sits down and talks to Chad Bird, about his most recent book, Limping with God: Jacob & the Old Testament Guide to Messy Discipleship.

Chad talks about:

Do you struggle with knowing how to read the Bible?

Do you wish you knew what questions to ask as you read God's Word? 

Do you long for a resource that would be simple to use in Bible Study?

Pastor Andy Jones has written an incredible book that will be a valuable resource to all who read it. He gives the reader ten questions to ask as they read the Bible. You don't have to have a theology degree in order to use them, but even if yo...

How do you see yourself? 

How you answer that question makes a difference in how you go through life.

Before the foundations of the world were laid, God chose you to be His very own. His choosing of you wasn't based on anything you would do or accomplish in your life. He chose you because He loves you as His precious child.

Sometimes we get stuck in thinking that we are the sum of our sins or that we are the sum of our good deeds. ...

You can face each day knowing that God is your hiding...

Advent is a time for waiting, but it’s also a season of trying to cram long to-do lists in our already overbooked calendars.

Maybe like me, you feel anxious by all the expectations you’ve placed on your calendar to have everything done and perfect for the holidays.
Expectations can leave us feeling anxious because what happens when life changes? You can plan everything perfectly, but people can get sick, winter storms come, and tr...

What is the cry of your heart? What is the prayer you’ve been whispering over and over again to God until you wonder if you should even keep asking? But the longing lasts, and you wait in the hope of knowing that God promises to hear your prayers and that He always answers your prayers, maybe not in the way you imagined, but always out of His divine love and grace towards you.

Michelle talked to Margo Heath Dupre about her book, Be Thou My Guide: A Bible Study on Trusting God. 

Margo wrote down all of her questions for God in journals for over 18 years. She spent time searching and reading scripture to understand more about how she could trust God. As she studied, she looked at different people in the Bible and learned from them and their stories on what it looks like to trust God in our daily lives.

One of my favorite people to talk to about emotional and mental health is Heidi Goehmann. God allowed our lives to intersect because of our love for words and His Word.

Throughout my life, I've labeled my emotions as positive or negative, and when I perceived my emotions through an unfavorable lens, I would feel ashamed. Through my friendship with Heidi, I learned we don't need to label our emotions as good or bad.

Have you ever messed up or made an unfixable mistake? Your failures do not have the final say over you, God does, and I love how Sharla writes about this in her new book, Measured by Grace.

I hope you can take the time to listen in and learn how God sees us as enough in Christ Jesus. I loved my conversation with Sharla; even though I read through her book in preparation for the interview, I learned so much from our time together.

Often, our worries come from not being able to control a situation. The truth is that we cannot plan for all the uncertainties we will face, but we can trust our Immanuel, the God who is with us, to give us His strength and peace through all the trials and troubles we will face in this life.

When our minds become stuck in "what if" thinking, we see things from our finite viewpoint. We forget that God is infinite and that we can tru...

Fear makes us forget who we are as God’s children. Our thoughts race with the limitations we have to solve our problems. We face the unfixable and feel shaken.

Jesus steps into our brokenness, and His faithfulness towards us is unshakeable. Jesus gives us His peace and strength. We can rest in His capable hands. He holds all things together.
