Words stand for something, right? The words we use in our Christian faith used to be fairly clear cut, but over the last few years some definitions have become confusing and murky: evangelism, preaching, and how Christian women biblically fit into that equation.
It is not God’s will for us to worry. No matter how strangling our fear may feel, God wants us to trust Him in everything, from the most dire situation to the most mundane. But how can we do that? In this episode Michelle and Amy discuss some biblical and practical ways to stop worrying and start trusting God.
The S word - it scares us doesn't it? We're talking about the word "Submit," and for many women, being in submission sounds like a door to abuse.
What a comfort to know that submission doesn't mean being abused, following a list of rules or being treated like a door mat, but it is an easy yoke that Jesus asks of all His followers. In this episode Amy and Michelle discuss why submission is mocked as a sign of weakness, but in fact is one of the strongest pillars of society.

This is the time of year when lots of people are making (or by now, breaking) New Year’s resolutions to "be a better you." Those resolutions tend to be very self-focused, so Michelle and Amy instead discuss some “holy habits” that every Christian ought to pursue all year long. Here are Eight Ways t Walk Worthy in 2020:
- Daily Bible reading/prayer
- Faithful church attendance
- Finding a place of service at your church
- Reaching out
Are nativity scenes and Christmas pageants violating the second commandment? What about Advent observances and candle-lighting ceremonies? And why do we celebrate Christ's birth on December 25th anyway? These are all great questions sent to us by our listeners, so today Amy and Michelle dig into Scripture and church history to share the answers, in this "Glad You Asked" Christmas edition!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year again, and with all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it’s easy for the Gospel to get lost in the shuffle. But the Great Commission never takes a vacation, and the holiday season provides some unique opportunities for sharing the gospel that we don’t have during the rest of the year.
Michelle and Amy discuss ways to share the Good News that are unique to the holiday season.
Three different podcasts come together for one giant cross over! Amy and Michelle recently joined Lauren from Tulips & Honey as well as Emily from The Aquila & Priscilla Hour. The ladies make up four different generations, and discuss Biblical discipleship from a woman's standpoint.
Ever since the Me Too movement exploded on social media a couple of years ago, we’ve been hearing more and more heartbreaking stories of women who have experienced physical and sexual abuse. If anyone can help and should be helping victims of abuse, it ought to be the church. But, unfortunately, it seems that the people in the evangelical spotlight who are stepping up to advocate for victims are often popular false teachers.
Michelle and Amy talk about ministering to women who have experienced physical and sexual abuse.
You might not bow down to golden statues of God, but we've all magnified things in our lives that eclipse our love for the Lord. We know it's wrong, but our hearts are prone to wander. Today Amy and Michelle tackle the tough subject of idolatry. Not only for us individually, but for churches, collectively.
If I leave my church for doctrinal reasons, is it gossip to tell my church friends why? What’s the difference between the true sin of oppression and claims of social injustice? These are just some of the questions we get from listeners, so Michelle and Amy turn to Scripture for answers. Be sure to listen to Glad You Asked, Part I.
