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.

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. Everyone is easily offended. Cancel culture. Fake news. Hate on social media. It seems like God just is letting the craziness, hate, and pain loose and He is not even stepping in to stop it. We cannot allow our opinions or views 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 G...

Before we begin, this is something that was placed in David’s heart to talk about on the podcast, on the topic of divorce. It is not an easy thing to talk about, and we have noticed that most people talk about divorce. However, there is no one talking about what it is like to be a part of a family that are divorced.   David shares his full story, from his point of view, of his parents' divorce and how he felt and handled it. ...

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...

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...

There is a pandemic going on around the whole world, and it is called the Coronavirus. We have some thoughts on the scary situation and want to address the deep fears that everyone has.

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
