The Simple Mission Podcast

Hello, y’all, our names are David and Lianna Bond, and we are newlyweds in our twenties, living for Jesus while being real + open about our lives. Figuring out your mission from God does not have to be complicated. Rather, it is simple. We will bring you along as we talk about relationships, family, marriage, college life, simple living, business. We pray that this podcast is a place where you can come as you are and is a blessing to your life as we learn together every week…while maybe having some laughs along the way.

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?"

We realize this is a longer episode than usual. Why? Because this topic is crucial to talk about. We notice, more than ever, that our overuse of social media and 7+ hours of screen time can take away the time that God wants you to use to continue or discover your mission.   Here are some hard facts found in research: We unlock our phones 150 times a day, according to a study on internet trends. 60% of college students admit t...

We know that in order to get closer and have a stronger relationship with the Lord, we have to have a time set aside to read the Bible, pray, & write.   Setting a time is often not easy in the beginning and reading the Bible may not be very fun at first and can be boring and put you to sleep. But, when you intentionally cultivate a time devoted to God, He will help you.   We have two ways to help you:   One way is very st...

This is just a short little conversation that we had a few weeks back when we were having our study time. Then, David was like we need to record this so write down what we talked about! And, we are finally recording this!   What a concept. Jesus spoke these statements to people back in his time, and these were radical commandments: love God & love others. But, here you will hear us speaking more about the second commandment o...

Stores are running out of supplies (even toilet paper), major events are being cancelled, and schools are closing. What are we supposed to do in this time of fear?   Disclaimer: we are not medical professionals, but simply want to address the fear...

If you have a dream already and you feel like you are lost in your thoughts or fears, this episode is for you. First of all, how do we “go for it”? In this world, we hear messages all the time, mostly found on Pinterest, like “Go for your dreams”, “Make It Happen”, “Don’t quit on your daydream”, “Think it. Want it. Get It.”, and “The world needs you to be you”.   But, how do we strike the balance of going for your dreams and stay...

So often, in our lives, we can tend to always be rushing into the next season, the next big thing, or the next success that is going to make us happy. What about the season and the moment that you are in that God has meant for you to be? Why do we still feel discontent in our present, the now? Jesus has a way of showing us how to slow down and be present with the Lord. In his season of ministry, Jesus intentionally slowed down, got...

This week's episode was not easy for us to record. For Christian couples or married couples, it is easy to share about our lives together when it is happy, positive, and in accordance to God's Word. But, what about the dark side of the purity struggle we Christians go through during dating and engagement?   No one talks about that. Some people pursuing God together in relationships feel alone in this struggle. Many people...

Discovering your purpose & mission is a hard topic to tackle because there are so many different ways to go about it. However, this is from a biblical and Christian perspective, so this is not a "5 steps to your destiny" type of episode.   This episode goes more into learning of what God says about your purpose & mission through His Word and by prayer.   First of all, there is a difference between PURPOSE & ...
