Ep 06: What to Say When You Don’t Know How to Pray
27:02

We have the freedom to speak conversationally to God. Prayer can create a deeper and more genuine relationship with God - one that isn’t forced, random or selfish.  If your roommate or spouse came home at the same time and had the same exact conversation with YOU every single day. how would it feel? Would that conversation create connection or distance? Would it promote a vulnerable or a guarded relationship? It wouldn’t be much of a relationship at all, would it?

Ep 05: Stop Fighting, Start Understanding: Accept Differences In Your Marriage
33:04

You and your spouse are biologically, spiritually and experientially different people.

Today we discuss a few practical ways to end the arguments and gain understanding for the betterment of your marriage.

The biological differences between you and your spouse have the opportunity to cause a lot of tension. You were also raised completely differently in different homes and you both have a very different relationship with God.

The differences between ourselves and our spouses can bring us closer together - if only we let them. We must put an end to the expectations for our spouse to parent like us, sleep like us, clean the house just like us, socialize like us, love like us and pursue God just like us.

Today Lindsey and Amaris are discussing:

  • Healthy communication in marriage
  • Practical tips to help stop the bickering once and for all
  • Putting an end to unrealistic expectations
  • Why you should never say ‘never’ (or ‘always’) in your marriage
  • How to find balance with football and video game loving husbands
  • Acceptance vs. Compromise

Ep 04: The Gospel Changes The Way You See Yourself
33:36

Insecurity has a negative impact on our intimacy, marriage and motherhood, but it doesn't have to.

Today we are discussing how the gospel changes the way that we see ourselves. A postpartum body, wrinkles and aging or the effects of a busy life are all reasons that we may not feel comfortable in our own skin.

Today, Lindsey and Amaris want to remind every one of you that you won’t ever be perfect and you may never feel fully comfortable in a bikini, but there is fullness of joy in accepting your body and beauty because of who God is, not who you are.

Today we are discussing:

  • How you may be “stealing” from your husband in a sexual way
  • “Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised” Proverbs 31
  • Why you have a unique opportunity to satisfy your spouse sexually
  • Feeling confident and comfortable with a bare, make-up free face
  • Accepting compliments with joy
  • How the gospel can completely change the way that we see ourselves

Ep 03: Do You Settle For Less Than Good?
27:22

Our lack of self-control can keep us from living the purposeful life that God intended for us. Fight the 'treat yourself' mentality and pursue His calling.

It’s too easy to end a long day with a bag of chips, a glass of wine and a Netflix binge. But are those things really good? Do they really, truly make us better? In moderation, sure. However, there often comes a point when you realize that you want a lot more out of your life.

In today’s episode, Lindsey and Amaris are talking about how ‘treating yourself’ doesn’t always mean giving into the temporary satisfactions that are offered. When you give in to the lie that these things make you better, you lose sight of Who ultimately gives you rest and joy.

Today, Lindsey and Amaris dive into the discussion about how self-discipline has an effect on every single aspect of our lives. The way that we treat our bodies impacts our families. The way that we treat our minds impacts our work and our success. The way that we treat our downtime affects our spiritual and physical purpose. Amaris and Lindsey bring to light the hope that can be found in choosing self-control as well as practical tips to help you implement this productivity into your daily life.

Ep 02: Stop Going House-to-House for the Holidays
26:36

Holidays are chaotic, but we have the freedom to make them peaceful. Your holidays don't need to be filled with bickering, excess spending or stress.

Today’s episode is all about slowing down. With the joy of the holidays can also come stress, chaos, obligation and excessive spending. Lindsey and Amaris want to share how you can have complete freedom from every single one of those things this year.

In many families, there are often expectations to jump from house to house on Thanksgiving and Christmas in order to meet everyone else’s needs. Today, Lindsey and Amaris are sharing practical tips and verses that will help you to fight the temptation to be all things to all people.

We want to remind you of the importance of loving, serving and being present during the holidays, and sometimes (though not all the time) that simply means saying ‘no.’ We hope that you are inspired to focus on your own little family this year. Instead of bickering, rushing and going into debt, they will share how you can bring happiness, peace and financial wisdom back into the holidays.

Ep 01: More Than Our Mess
42:32

Lindsey and Amaris share the raw stories of their pasts and how God has redeemed those stories for good.

This honest conversation gives women the freedom to break through the stigma of shame. It is a reminder to us that the bondage has been broken because of who Jesus is. The heartache caused by sexual abuse, emotional dependency, alcohol, loss of family members and more has turned into a beautiful testimony of God’s grace, forgiveness, redemption and love in the midst of it all.
