The Simple Mission Podcast

The Simple Mission Podcast

Figuring out your life and your God-given mission does not have to be complicated. Rather, it’s pretty simple. We filter the complicated topics through the simple lens of the Gospel. Hosted by David + Lianna (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. We go over a variety of topics, like church, family issues, staying pure, divorce, marriage, simple living, finding community, mental health, and more. See thesimplemission.com for more.

Hi there! We missed being on the podcast just chatting with y'all - we are doing a quick episode on our thoughts we have had this summer over "summertime" and spending time with God... Sometimes, we can be so looking forward to summer, mostly to relax, to go on vacations and trips, and just to have the extra time. But how are we truly using and spending our summer time? What are our true priorities? We hear this sayin...

We know that hearing the word “intimacy” may make you scared or want to run away. But what about in marriage?? There are many types of intimacy that we found researching this (12?!) and we think that gets way too complicated and mostly unnecessary to have all of them. We go over 3 major types of intimacy - physical, emotional, & spiritual intimacy. This episode covers all of them in no particular order. We are going to be very...

Why is it important to speak good words? To reveal if you are a true believer of Jesus Christ or do not know God at all. And, to bring life, not death, to believers and non-believers. We continue on in our James 3 Bible Study and in Part 2, we share examples of good words and examples of bad words and you can see where your words are at now.  This is difficult to do to watch our mouths and continue to speak good towards others and...

Do you all feel like what you say gets you into trouble a lot? Is what you are thinking or commenting online not really the best? We all certainly struggle with our words and the power of our tongue can build up or tear down. Often, our words comes from our thoughts and our thoughts comes from our hearts and where our heart is focused on is where we are drawing from. In this bible study from James 3 on Taming The Tongue, we discus...

This episode is rea...

The difficult truth is that there is no perfect forgiveness. We can listen to this episode and do so much better with it, however we are all human and our first instinct is to get angry and hold grudges. That's the truth.  Practicing forgiveness is extremely valuable in your life. Not only does Jesus talk about it a whole lot in the Bible, it is mentioned in other texts outside of the Bible in many other ways. Even if it is on...

We have heard so many stories and experiences regarding church hurt and it really makes us sad because we know what and how the church should be according to God's Word. The church was designed and built for the lost, to have a safe place to be able to share their experiences and receive the love of Christ in return regarding the denomination or characteristic of the church. Church hurt happens when people lose sight of that, ...

At the beginning of 2022, Lianna and I (David) became full-time entrepreneurs. No more benefits, no more punching in the clock. We were punching our own clock now and make our own schedules. This episode is all about the transition, struggles, and the real moments of shifting from full-time to your own time and how God is good through it all. Even through much uncertainty and unknowns, we did not think we would become full-time en...

This is the ULTIMATE 2022 Planning episode for you, but with a twist. Even though this episode is coming out in February, we refuse to believe that it's too late in the game of creating and going over 2022 goals, habits, and schedule. You can start anytime to do “new years” goals and have a plan because a goal without a plan is just a wish. We share a few of our goals and intentions for 2022, before we get into the rest of the ...

FIRST episode of 2022! We miss y'all! It’s been about almost 2 months since our last podcast episode, wow. We wanted to share all about how it's been moving into and living in a fixer-upper during renovations. (If you didn't know about us moving, it's all here in the previous episode, EP. 57) We are about 90% percent with the inside of the house. We have been working really hard on it to bring it from the original 1...

We are ending our season with a little bit of tough love and real truth. What is something that we all do or have done? Make excuses. Making excuses can be very easy, and it can almost be the easy way out. But, what excuses do we make and why do we do it? We share three reasons of why we make excuses and the deeper issues within it. And, then we give you a powerful + fiery encouragement to stop making excuses and follow in what...

How do you literally make friends as an adult? We share our thoughts on growing up and having friends in school, and our experiences with friendships from then to now. To befriend people involves you to step out of your comfort zone and quit being a kid and just to go out and talk to people and get to know them, no matter who they are, their age, their social status, or anything. We have to break the clique mindset that we had in ...

There are times when we get angry, but there are also times when we are angry ALL the time. After the last year and a half, it seems like many of us are going to bed mad and are waking up mad. But, that is not the life that God wants for us to live. Living in anger or lashing out in anger constantly will hold us back from pursuing fully in our God-given mission and purpose. But, not to worry, for we talk on how we can overcome ange...

Before you get married, you think you might know everything, did all the research, read all the books, went to pre-marital counseling, and more. But it’s not until you actually step into marriage that you will know and truly experience it and know what it is like to have a spouse and be one together. And, there will be many lessons learned, fights fought, and hard times to be had. Even though marriage seems like the most perfect fa...

We are continuing on our conversation on money, but this time, we are going to review how we can manage our money in a biblical way. First, we do a short recap on what we went over from part 1 of how we view money. Then, we bring up a difficult topic before we get into managing money: the love of money. This is a struggle that all types of people have, not just the rich people. The love of money can change you and not for the best...

Money is important to God. Did you know that? Or did you think money was evil? We want to break down what God says about money, wealth, how to view it, and how to manage. But, first, we have to understand as Christians how we are called to view the money God has given to us. Finances and money in God's eyes is simple and straightforward. But, we want to help you understand money in the way God intended, even if you don't li...

Jealousy and envy. We've all dealt with having these ugly feelings, emotions, and thoughts about our life and about other people.

We (David and Lianna) share an emotional journey of our waiting ...

We are officially back with season 4! But, we are starting our first episode a bit differently than we've done. We want to have a conversation with YOU. Yes, you, the listeners, and just ask, "How are you?" In the day and age of always being busy, being on our phones, & being on social media constantly, we realize that we hardly put in a practice of taking a pause.  And, we will have some questions that you can answ...
