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.

Setting the right boundaries in your life can make a massive impact and will get you started off on a good track on your God-given mission. As Christians, we have a more difficult time to set boundaries or even realize we need boundaries. First, we debunk all the lies that you may have believed about setting boundaries. We define what boundaries are, what it looks like in real life, our experiences of not having boundaries versus ...

Most of us can admit that we have all done this: go to the Bible, attempt to find a specific bible verse that will suit our needs, argument, sin, or lifestyle. But, this is so dangerous and damaging. When the bible is taken out of context or misused, we are pointing to ourselves instead of pointing to the most important thing in our lives: God. We cannot pick out a couple of verses that suit us and we agree with and throw the rest ...

Within the church and among Christians, we hear the message of staying pure and saving sex for marriage over and over again. But, no one really goes over on maintaining godly purity even after you get married. Maintaining purity is stressed so much before marriage, but within marriage, everyone is silent on this topic. Even as David and Lianna are married, they are just as intentional about remaining pure within marriage as they ha...

We have wanted to talk about business, but never could really grasp what God wanted us to share. So, this episode is all about combining business and the gospel. If you are a business person or want to get into business, the reality is that we are in business, whether you know it or not. But, as Christians, how is business and the gospel so closely related? Here are a couple of main points about Gospel combined with business: F...

Even though the fruits of the Holy Spirit are one of the most well-known sections of the Bible, you might surprised that there are much to study and expand on. First, we highlight on what qualities or "fruits" won't get you into heaven, and then we go over each fruit of the Holy Spirit and see if you have the evidence. At the end of the episode, we take a quick tangent or "rant" as you might call it on being ca...

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...

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...

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
