Welcome to the Embracing Brokenness Podcast. Our focus is to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to a hurting world. To live authentically and without pretense. To encourage others toward a greater understanding of who they are and who God is. To teach the blessed HOPE that the Bible calls the “Anchor of the Soul”. That is Jesus Christ and His healing presence – not only available in this life – but in eternity to come. Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/embracing-brokenness/support

Does your work matter for eternity? We asked this same question a couple of weeks ago. Sadly, most believers don’t think so. Sure, the 1 percent of the time they spend sharing the gospel with their co-workers matters. But most Christians view the other 99 percent of their time as meaning very little in the grand scheme of things. But that’s not how God sees it.


As a follow-up to Steve's interview with Jordan Raynor, we ass...

Did you ever feel abandoned by God? You're not alone. He never promised us a rose garden, but he did say he was our ever-present help. It often doesn't always feel that way. It's the messiness of life that confuses us when we don't see God in it. Thing is - He's in everything.

In this podcast, our team discusses the challenges and opportunities to invite Him into the mess.

One of the greatest challenges we as Christ-followers face is how to then navigate our daily lives in concert with him. Life gets messy in a hurry.

In this podcast episode, the team here at Embracing Brokenness discuss what that means in our lives...

Our journey as Believers in Christ can seem long and arduous. We get stuck in places we never knew existed.

Working harder to garner His love is not the solution.

On today’s podcast, Steve and Colleen delve deeper into the stuckness and solutions toward a deeper r...
