Podcast Episode 45: Kayla Craig, Living an Upside-Down Life

a-moms-mission-field-podcast-episode-45-kayla-craig-living-an-upside-down-life

What does it mean to live an upside down Christian life? The crazy thing is, what we may think of as extraordinary, radical Christianity is what the Bible describes as pretty much baseline Jesus following.  How do we get back to the idea that being a Christian means looking different from society?

I’m excited to talk about all these things with the lovely Kayla Craig. She’s a mom, a pastor’s wife, a podcaster, a children’s book author, and more. If you don’t know Kayla yet, trust me you’re going to love her.

Podcast Episode 42: Rebecca Pierce, Who is Jesus to You? Back to Basics in Your Relationship with Christ

A Mom's Mission Field Podcast Episode 42, Rebecca Pierce, Who is Jesus to You? Back to Basics in your relationship with Christ

Do you know Jesus? No really. Do you know that you know that you know Jesus? Who is He to you? Who is God to you? Can you honestly say you love Him? In today’s episode we go beyond the textbook Sunday School answers to look at how to evaluate your relationship with Christ. This is fundamental, my friends. Nothing else on earth or beyond matters more than loving Jesus.

What does that mean? Where do you start? What do you do about your doubts? If you are ready to move past surface-level Christianity, I can’t wait to introduce you to Rebecca Pierce. Rebecca is a wife, a mom, and a podcaster who loves teaching women the basics of walking with Jesus.

Podcast Episode 41: Vanessa Clark, God Still Works Miracles

a-moms-mission-field-podcast-episode-41-vanessa-clark-god-still-works-miracles

Do you believe in miracles? As a follower of Jesus I believe in miracles. I know they exist. I know God still performs miracles. But I’ve never actually seen one. I don’t know why that is, to be honest, but I know that’s not the way we’re supposed to live. I know we Christians are supposed to see God work in miraculous ways all the time, but we are content to live average lives devoid of any power. I want to change that. That’s why I’m so glad to have Vanessa Clark on today’s show. Vanessa has an amazing story of watching a miracle unfold in her own home when God healed her infant son of blindness.

If you struggle with your faith in God’s power or God’s goodness or God’s concern for our problems, I hope you’ll be encouraged today. I don’t have all the answers to who God heals and who He doesn’t or the whys behind all of that, but I do know God is good and God loves you more than you can ever imagine.

Podcast Episode 39: Stacey Thacker, Confessions of a Fresh Out of Amazing Mom

A Mom's Mission Field Podcast Episode 39, Stacey Thacker on Being a Mom who is Fresh Out of Amazing

Ladies, do you ever feel weary, overwhelmed, unqualified, and just plain fresh out of amazing? Can I tell you you’re not alone. Not even close. I feel like today’s guest really opened the door for all of us moms to realize we aren’t the only ones who feel that way.

Stacey Thacker is the author of an upcoming book called “Fresh Out of Amazing” and she’s here to share the moment that brought her flat to the feet of Jesus in the middle of her laundry pile and how her obedience not only helped her find her significance and strength in Jesus, but she has been able to encourage thousands of women through her words.

Podcast Episode 38: Retha Nichole and Emily Thomas, A Sweaty Conversation about Racial Reconciliation

A Mom's Mission Field Podcast Episode 38 Retha Nichole and Emily Thomas and I share a sweaty conversation about racial reconciliation

Today I have a special episode for you guys. I have two fellow podcasters on today who have become very close friends of mine. If you are listening to this later or if you happen to be listening outside of the US you may not know that last week was a rough week for race relations in America. Two black men were shot by the police which sparked protests. During a protest a sniper shot and killed several police officers. The combination of those two events has really put our country at odds and this isn’t the first time this has happened.

As Christian women, what should our response be? What can we do to encourage healthy race relations and teach our children to do the same? That’s what this show is all about. Retha Nichole from the Journey to Balance Podcast and Emily Thomas from the Mom Struggling Well Podcast join me in a conversation about how to start “The Conversation.” How do we develop relationships with people of other races? How do we talk about events in the news? How do we start to listen to others without jumping to our own conclusions?

Guys, believe me when I say we were nervous about this episode. There was plenty of sweaty armpit moments and possibly some bowel issues involved, but we believe so much in the importance of this topic that we powered through. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts.
