Can we trust the Bible?
This was the question we talked in depth about in the last episode, 8 Reasons Why YOU Can Trust the Bible, and today we are talking to Amy Van Vogt- mama, wife, Ex-LDS, Biblical theology student, and massive enthusiast of reading God’s word.
Like me, Amy went a long time stuck in a bad theological mindset years after leaving the church when one day God showed her another way.
Now, self-admitted, get her talking about the Bible and she can’t stop.
Today’s question:
Is the Bible Cool? Should YOU Do Lessons or Just Read?

Affirmations that Work! How to Use God’s Strength to Fight Life’s Biggest Battles, Interview with Carla Arges

Just because we become Christian does not mean our walk is a straightforward path. Our Guest today started with no God in her life, new-age, Scientology. In fact, she likens herself to Paul. He was against Christians and then had a radical transformation to become one.
But life is not simple and we all have our vulnerabilities.
In this two-part episode we are going to follow Athena Dean Holtz on a journey from God-hating, Scientology, a Christian awakening, vulnerable spots of deception, a 13-year walk in a toxic and restrictive cult and then God’s amazing, redeeming love.

Was I Part of a Toxic, Restrictive Cult? From a God Hater to Redeemed.

A Story of Faith from Ex-LDS and New Believer, Sara Jimenez.

How hard is it to trust God? After we leave the thing that was supposed to be our salvation, how do we ever put trust in God again? Today we are talking to Sara Jimenez.Sara spent all her time doing everything she could to earn God’s favor in order to make her life better and got nowhere.
She gave up on God and religion.
And when she was angriest with God, the most broken that is when she felt His love.
It is not about earning His favor. It’s about trusting Him to bring peace in hearts even at the hardest times. Trusting Him that those hard times may even be what brings us to Him. Trusting Him with our lives and souls. This is a story of faith.

How Hard is it to Trust God?

He never leaves us and He will never forsake us. Today’s episode is a bit heavy. Our guest Klarice went through some exceptionally hard times. This episode deals with depression, self-harm, and suicidal thoughts. But more than that it deals with God’s love and His grace.

At the lowest moment of her journey, God’s miracle was waiting and Klarice’s life and heart were never the same. She grew up in a prominent family in a small town with a large LDS community. She had a large loving family, but all the while was hiding a secret of depression and lack of self-worth.

It took years and some very hard times for things to change. This is a story of redemption and proof that God is there, just waiting for us.

How He Helps the Broken. Can our Moment of Desperation Become our Saving Grace?

Have you felt the tug of depression? Statistically, one in six women in the United States is on an anti-depressant. Not good odds. And all the self-help stuff often has only temporary relief, if not lasting negative effects. It becomes negative because the focus of all self-help goes back to one, solitary problem- ourselves. It always relies on us tapping into this strength we have somewhere inside us and suddenly snapping out of it. Then, when we can’t find this strength or it doesn’t last we are left feeling more deficient, more lost, less equipped, and more broken. Ladies, It takes a true mind-shift to gain mental peace and that can’t be found in self-help books, the latest motivational trend, or even within our strength. This mind shift happens when the most amazing moment comes and you realize you were never meant to be the strong one. In fact, you were meant to surrender. His will is strong enough to move mountains. All we have to do is give it to Him.
The guest we have on the show today has focused all her work in Christ to make that mind shift. Lauren Roskilly is a woman who has walked through the fire, been in the depths of depression and illness and has risen above on His strength. With a renewed sense of purpose, she now lives in His purpose taking direction from God alone on where to serve. Lauren is a mum of two beautiful children. She has a BA Hons in Health and social care and also a diploma in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). She is the author of the book, ‘Christian-based Cognitive Behavioral therapy’, a Christian Life Coach, she helps people to recognize and overcome limiting beliefs & negative mindsets and help them to discover and step into their God-given purpose.

his episode spoke volumes to me and willing to be it will for you also.

Are you on a Jesus Journey? Better yet, do you have a relationship with our Lord? We can do all the works, go to church, fulfill callings, learn about church and about gospel, but are we taking the time to know Him?
Today, we are hearing the story of a former LDS member, and ex-Mormon mama and wife, Liz Lowder who decided to do just that, build a relationship. It started while she was still in the church, but now overflows into all parts of her life.
It is not easy to get out of the mindset of working for His love, but we always have to remember, His love He freely gives.

Today we are talking about obedience.
This is being close to God and when prompted by Him, listening.
This is a two-part episode and worth every minute of inspiration to turn our face to the Lord.

What is Obedience to God? A Season of Trust.

I help women who have left ‘the church’ and don’t want to give up on Jesus, learn to trust and know you are enough because of His grace, not works and build a relationship after religion.

Be grateful in everything–even the bumpy rides … is Robin Luftig’s mantra while either writing or speaking to audiences on healing after tragedy. The central theme to all her messages–grace is available for everyone.
This episode is really going to speak to you today. I have had so many messages asking, “what are my next steps on where to go when I’m trying to find faith? I’m at this place where I’m not quite sure what happens after I’ve said, okay, Jesus take the wheel.”
his episode speaks volumes.
