Helping Exmo New Believing Christian Women to Know Jesus and Gain Self-Worth through Bible Study + Personal Development Are you ready to go on a Jesus Journey? You’re invited! I know what it is like to have so many questions about the Christian faith. If you are like me, you may have some religious baggage that left you questioning your self-worth in a big way. You’re asking... How do I raise my kids with faith when I’m still trying to figure it out? Where can I find a community I can trust? Why does every church feel like culture shock? Will I ever know Jesus? Is Faith something meant for other people? It’s just so overwhelming. And the world keeps telling you you are enough- all on your own, you are enough. …but you don’t feel like it. In fact, you question your self-worth at every opportunity. Friend, I have been there! And here is a secret- without God, you will never be enough. And that is an amazing thing. Keep reading… I’m Shelby Hohsfield. At times, I was an ex-Mormon, agnostic, a Sunday Christian, want-to-be Buddhist, and a New Age follower, but God had very different plans for me. The whole time I was living in one very big lie- that I was in charge of my own enoughness and my works would save me and my life. Don’t get me wrong, I am all about self-help and personal development, but as a born-again, fully transformed Christian, I learned there is the world’s way, and there is God’s way. It took me 20 years after leaving the Mormon church to finally meet God, and when I did, I would never be the same. To quote CS Lewis, ”The more we get ourselves out of the way and let Him take us over, the more truly ourselves we become.” Mere Christianity. You are enough not because of what you have done but because of what He has done, and He lives through you. In this podcast, we are going to dive into Bible truths explained just for Exmos and New Believer mamas so you never have to feel overwhelmed or question your compass or self-worth again. We talk about social pressures, family struggles, basic Christian beliefs, and God’s amazing grace for you. This is the place for theology, apologetics, and wisdom from His word that will shape your life, your confidence, and yes, your feeling of enough. Be prepared for Self-help done in God’s amazing way. Friend, you are in the right place! xoxo, Shelby ___________________________________________________________________ ABOUT YOUR HOST Finding Faith Above is hosted by Shelby Hohsfield. Shelby grew up in a mixed-faith home and attended the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormon or LDS) church until she was 18. As most people do when they leave the church, 85% actually, Shelby left God altogether when she left the LDS church. It wasn’t until she was pregnant with her son that God was made evident to her. From there sparked a quest to FIND FAITH, a fleeting idea that challenged her at every step. After trying all matters of religion for years, she was struck one night when some big things literally brought her to her knees- When things got super hard, it was the surrender to the one true God that changed everything about Shelby’s life, belief, and understanding of this universe we live in. After a 20-year journey after leaving the church, she finally found faith above. As Jesus asked us to do, Shelby now dedicates herself to the great commission- telling the world the good news of Jesus. ___________________________________________________________________ CONNECT WITH ME Email＞ email@example.com Website＞ https://findingfaithabove.com/ FB Group＞ https://www.facebook.com/groups/christianwomenafterreligion Instagram＞ https://www.instagram.com/findingfaithabove/ Learn to Podcast and Share your Story＞https://faithabovewebsites.com/ _____________________________________________________________

You decide to leave the church, the beliefs, or the cultural construct of your childhood. It makes sense, right?
They tell you that you don't have enough faith. You just need to have faith and know that it will all work out.
But you don’t have faith.
We can’t help it. Today, we are all about our dreams, our plans, what we envisioned for ourselves, our life.
And we saw it going a specific way.
And if God was going to interfere, it was going to be with blessings and only blessings.
But that's not quite how life often works out, is it?
Truth is God already has a plan for us. It’s not a plan we h...
When we are in need, do we actually trust?
Are we just hoping for a change, a miracle, for God to step in?

After leaving the church, spoiler- my life was not automatically great, faith-filled, and full of Christ. Not even close. I talk about leaving and that it took me 20 years to find Jesus, but I rarely talk about what happened in those 20 years.

One of the most complex and emotional aspects of leaving the church for so many is shedding this idea that our worth with God is tied to this endless checklist of things we are supposed to go to the highest level of heaven.

The weight of the world can feel very heavy!
We can’t listen to the news without feeling like the world is at a total loss for peace.
From wars, to social upevil, human trafficking, drugs, whole cities going under.
As someone desperately looking for the good in all things and wanting a safe, happy place for our children to grow up, things can feel a bit grim.
One of the most confusing things about coming to Christ after leaving the Mormon church has to do with the same terminology meaning very different things. Even what it means to be a Christain gets a whole new take.
