The Simple Mission Podcast

The Simple Mission Podcast

Figuring out your God-given mission does not have to be complicated. Rather, it is simple. Hosted by David + Lianna Bond (that’s us!), we seek to equip others to read, study, and know the Bible, learn more of who God is, what He has done, and His mission for us. But, we also share other fun and not-so-fun topics, like church, family issues, staying pure, divorce, marriage, simple living, finding community, mental health, and more. Join in and let’s learn together while having some laughs along the way. Visit us here on https://thesimplemission.com for more info on how to connect with us.... Show More

We continue on the conversation on Church Hunters, starting from our journey of church-hunting. Today, we are going over  why church-hunting is the answer, the difference between church-hopping and church-hunting, and when and how do you know that this church you are in is your church home.   We say over and over again in this episode, "There is no perfect church that exists out there."   We address what should be sough...

Today, you are in for a treat! We are joined with Phylicia Masonheimer, a best-selling author of Stop Calling Me Beautiful, theologian, and hosts her podcast, Verity.  We asked her all about how to not get intimidated by the Bible, why reading the Bible is important, and practical and inspiring tips to get started right now. She even encouraged us as well, especially on to not worry about having to know everything about the Bible a...

During the year 2020, during the pandemic, we decided to leave the church that we got married in. After visiting two churches later, we are back at the same church. We wanted to share our journey of church-hunting because it is a subject not shared much online for someone that may be going through the same experience and feel alone in the process. Disclaimer: We are not going to name churches or call out people or pastors or whate...

Why read the Bible?  Isn't it outdated and written by people who have been dead for centuries? How is it relevant to me today? We first have to understand: what is the Bible?  We go over a brief overview on the Bible, like what's in the Old Testament and the New Testament, and why they still matter today. If you live in the United States like us, you must realize how blessed we are to be able to go to church, read the Bibl...

In this day and age, we feel entitled to have everything we want within our grasp and at the time we want it. We want  because we deserve it. We want our dreams to be achieved without ever lifting a finger to put in the hard work. And the worst part is that we think we are following the call of God. In all reality, we are not patient and think we deserve happiness, success, and wealth in the name of serving God. However, some of us...

Yep, we are going to bring up anxiety, the symptoms, our history, and how to move forward.

But, first, we will define "anxiety" and "worry" so that there is no confusion.

This is the Season 2 Finale Episode! Since it will be our last episode for a while so we can have a short break from podcasting content & focus on the blog and other projects, we kept thinking about what to talk about for this last episode. And we are ending the season with a bang, a huge topic! We feel like we had to speak on this topic for our last episode, that we as Christians are not meant to be of this world. And, the wo...

Everyone is divided and easily offended. Cancel culture. Fake news. Hate online. It seems like God just is letting the chaos loose, and He is not even stepping in to stop it. We cannot allow our opinions of people from believing that God is still good. Our beliefs, opinions, values, news, political party affiliation, has to align with God and His Word. If it doesn’t, then it is not of God, therefore not good.   We also bring up a...

We answer about 5-7 questions in this episode, which includes stepparents, divorce affecting our marriage, kids of divorced parents reacting in different ways, ...

Many of us may come from divorced families or lived through a divorce themselves. However, hardly anyone talks about what it is like to be a part of a divorced family. And, almost no one talks about how to deal with divorce and being a Christian. "No one wins at divorce; everyone loses." - David. But, there is hope. David truly wanted to give people from a divorce background that they are not alone in this struggle of pain,...

In our lives, we are always going to have conflicts. This episode will go into this further and can be applicable for married couples, dating couples, friendships, family, siblings, co-workers, classmates, and more. So, pretty much anyone. This is not an episode where we explain the step-by-step of ways to handle difficult people or how to get what you want. Rather, it is an episode on dealing with conflict in a Biblical way. And...

So, what will life look like after the year 2020? This is something that even we are wrestling with right now. And, we know so many of you listening are too. We know we all have legitimately asked ourselves these questions like,   "Will we still be wearing masks everywhere we go?", "Will the US go back to “normal” or will it become a new normal?" "How can I plan ahead if my summer or yearly plans have ...
