A Podcast by Michelle Lesley and Amy Spreeman
Normally when we’re preparing for a Glad You Asked episode, we’ll take to social media and ask you to send us your questions. And, normally, we receive far more excellent questions than we’re able to answer in one episode. So this episode of Glad You Asked is from the leftover questions file!
Women pastors. Sexual abuse. Homosexuality in the church. The SBC annual meeting is right around the corner, and with these and other serious issues looming, biblical, convictional leadership is more important than ever. In this bonus episode of A Word Fitly Spoken, Michelle sits down with SBC presidential candidate, Pastor Mike Stone, to discuss the issues and his vision for a biblical path forward.

When a true, born-again believer sins, we experience great sorrow and throw ourselves on the great mercy of our loving God - This is of course repentance. Even though God has already washed away our sins, we still occasionally do sin and need to repent of those sins. In this episode we talk sin, forgiveness, redemption and more.

Welcome to the May 2023 edition of The Pew, where we address current events - inside and outside the church - from a biblical perspective. In this episode:
Have you heard about the upcoming documentary, The Essential Church? It’s a feature-length documentary about the persecuted church throughout history, as well as a recent example of church versus government during the COVID restrictions, spotlighting John MacArthur's Grace Community Church. Listen in as we interview film director, Shannon Halliday, and make plans now to see The Essential Church when it releases later this summer.
In this episode of Talk Back, we compare Rick Warren's recent remarks about women "pastors" to Scripture. Do the Scriptures he cites really support the idea of women pastoring and preaching? Spoiler alert: Of course not! Let's take a look at what these passages really mean and what the Bible really says about women pastoring and preaching.

Is Women Preaching a Secondary Issue?
On the surface, prayer seems so simple- just talk to God. But when it’s time to actually do it, there can be a million questions. And those questions are nothing to be ashamed of. The disciples lived with Jesus. Heard Him pray. Watched Him pray. And they still had to ask Him, “Lord, teach us to pray.” In part 2 of our 2 part series on prayer, we talk about praying Scripture, and practical tips for your own prayer time, as well as l...

What do I do when I feel far from God? Should Christians practice yoga? What is the Raindrop Technique of administering essential oils, and is it biblical? We're answering these questions and more on this episode of Glad You Asked!

Easter, or Resurrection Sunday, if you prefer, is upon us. It's all about the resurrection of Christ from the dead. But, as you know, there’s no resurrection without a crucifixion. Jesus had to lay down His life before He could take it up again. And that's what we're talking about in this episode as we approach Easter - Jesus’ suffering, or “passion” as it’s sometimes called, and His death, burial, and resurrection.
It’s so important that we, as Christian women, exercise discernment so that we aren’t deceived by false teachers or false doctrine. In this episode, we'll take a look at four deceptive pop false doctrines that evangelical women are being wooed by right now, and how you can avoid being deceived by them.
Women’s conferences can be such a wonderful time of refreshing. Amy and Michelle first met in person at a women's conference, and A Word Fitly Spoken was born! And because we've both had such a wonderful time at women's conferences and have seen how helpful they can be, we want to share the joy with you! Listen in as we discuss the benefits of local church women's conferences and some practical help for planning and hosting.
Pastors are increasingly facing a culture that challenges the biblical roles of women in the church and at home. Amy and Michelle were recently invited to be interviewed by Pastor Mitch Schultz, who has served for over thirty years as a pastor with the Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA). He is the host of a podcast, Before You Quit: Bringing Courage and Perspective When Serving Gets Hard. What a blessing and encouragement it...
How can we be discerning and "test the spirits," as it says in 1 John 4:1-6? We do that by holding up everything we hear or read to the light of Truth found in God's Word, to see if this comes from the Spirit of Truth or a spirit of error. We are kicking off an episode series called "Talk Back," where we listen together to a presentation, a video or a sermon, and then compare what that speaker teaches to what God's Word says. In th...
When you hear someone say the word “hospitality,” what's the first thing that comes to mind? An immaculate home with a Pinterest-ready guest room? A fancy party with crystal serving bowls and your grandma's best china? That is not biblical hospitality. Amy and Michelle dive into Scripture to discuss what God's Word says about the hospitable heart, in Part 2 of our two-part series. (Listen to part 1 here)

Mardi Gras, Ash Wednesday, and Lent are all traditions that are connected. But are they biblical? In this encore episode, Michelle and Amy dig deep into Scripture to explain why sweet treats and parades are fun, the theology behind these traditions are far from biblical truth.

We call it The Pew not only because it will bear a slight resemblance to The View, but because it’s sort of like our view from the church pew on these thought-provoking headline stories.

Welcome to another "What Would You Do?" episode!Amy and Michelle each came up with three scenarios requiring wisdom on the fly to ask each other about. But here’s the catch - we’ve kept those scenarios a secret from each other, so we’ve both got to give our answers off the cuff. Play along!
“Practicing the Presence of God” a growing contemplative trend - Amy Spreeman
When we think about holy habits, we mostly think about things like reading our Bibles, prayer, and church attendance. But what about evangelism - telling the lost how to be saved? It’s something the Lord calls all of us to do, but it’s also something most Christians have lots of questions about. In our third and final Holy Habits for the New Year episode, we visit with Rich Story, co-host of Voice of Reason Radio.
