Called Out: Paula Faris

Paula reminds us that our worth is not in our successes and accomplishments. Her new book Called Out: Why I Traded Two Dream Jobs for a Life of True Calling challenges us to look within and understand that our faith calling and our vocational calling are not the same things.

Gardening For Beginners: Jill McSheehy
00:34:00

In this episode, Jill McSheehy joins us to talk about all things gardening! Frustrated with the lack of gardening resources for new gardeners when she began her first garden in 2013, Jill created the Beginner's Garden to help others with the same frustrations. Through Jill's guidance in the podcast and web articles, thousands of beginning gardeners have been able to start and grow their own gardens.

Recently, gardening and spending time outside has become a new hobby for many people. Jill encourages listeners that you don't have to be an expert to have your own garden. The benefits of growing your own crops are endless, as it is so much more than just what you are harvesting. Not only are you able to to see your hard work physically come to life and provide your home with fresh fruits and vegetables, but it is also refreshing for your mental health as you experience in detail the gifts that God has created. We hope you enjoy this conversation with Jill!

It is such a treat to have Anjuli Paschall on this week's episode! Anjuli challenges listeners to pump the brakes, stop running, and open your eyes to the things happening around you.

Dream Again: Quarantine Rhythms
00:28:27

We were designed to dream, and to take responsibility for those dreams. We were made for meaning. Today's episode on the Quarantine Rhythms series is meant to ignite a spark in each of us on recognizing those hidden talents, hopes, and dreams that over the last several years or decades of our lives may have been brushed to the side. For some of us, we may immediately know what those are and be able to pinpoint  exactly when it was that they got pushed to the side. For others of us, we may feel stumped and realize that we may have never been able to identify what those unique talents are.

In this conversation, Gabe and Rebekah share a part of their individual stories on how discovering their talents and dreams actually led them down the pathways to where they find themselves now.

Francis Chan: True Community
00:26:33

We simply cannot be bearers of the truth and preach the word if we are not in fellowship personally with Jesus. When we are close to Him and make that room for Him, it overflows into everything and everyone around us. We cannot serve from emptiness - using our own words and thoughts to give direction to others. It is a daily rhythm of spending time with the Lord and falling more in love with Him that allows us to go out and spread the word to others, even if only in our own neighborhoods. Today's episode with Francis Chan is an inspiring conversation that serves as an important reminder for many ears right now. Chan provides us with practical ways on how  to serve the areas that we have been placed in, and he prays a powerful prayer over us at the end of this conversation.

Apologize First: Quarantine Rhythms
00:17:27

How could apologizing make a difference in your home right now? Regardless of what home or quarantine looks like for you, we are all  experiencing new territory together. The routines that we had prior have come to a screeching halt. There is more time and more attention to give, and we believe that God is using this time to restore relationships. 

Maybe there is someone you were once close to and things fell apart. Could you give them a phone call and simply say "I'm sorry, will you forgive me?" Could we actually use this time to provide valuable life lessons for the young ears in our homes and demonstrate what it looks like to slow down enough to not gloss over conflicts? What better time than now to get to the root of some of the things we may have been struggling with for years. The best response when connection is broken is not to push away but rather the opposite, to pull in.

Make A Memory: Quarantine Rhythms
00:16:37

This time in continued isolation is becoming more and more of a routine, and you may find that the excitement and energy behind the fun ideas you had originally planned for your time at home have quickly faded away. We hope this episode encourages you today to think outside the box and get creative with those around you. Making memories helps us step outside ourselves, even if just for a moment. In seasons of great stress and anxiety, it might be the very thing that turns everything around.

Take A Walk: Quarantine Rhythms
00:24:29

This week on the Quarantine Series, we chose to focus on a topic that may seem simple, but it is crucial right now. We are all feeling a little stir crazy during this uncharted time of being separated from others and staying home. However, this doesn't mean that we can't get outside and take a walk. Walking is critical for the restoration of our mental health, creativity, and productivity.  

We want to challenge you to make walking a priority. There is great mental and physical relief in getting to walk alongside your spouse (or the person you are in quarantine with), as we face this together.

Lisa Whittle: Jesus Over Everything
00:38:50

We are so grateful to have Lisa Whittle  on today's episode! Lisa reminds us that in a world where noise and distractions are pulling at us from every direction, it is much easier to make decisions when the right priority order is set in motion. Jesus is covering us, holding us, and sheltering us from being overcome by the world like a protective awning. We must simply put Him first.

Lisa has dedicated her life to writing and speaking about the truth of Jesus Christ and how wanting Him the most changes everything. Her brand new book, Jesus Over Everything: Uncomplicating the Daily Struggle to Put Jesus First, is out NOW!

Take Inventory: Quarantine Rhythms
00:25:44

We are so excited to launch a new series, where each week we will process one new rhythm together! Although these current, unprecedented times can ignite fear, Gabe and I are eager to walk alongside you as we navigate the unknown together. There is no better time than now to begin taking inventory. As we pause and begin to examine the different areas of our lives, our eyes may be opened to what is right, what is wrong, what is confused, and what is missing. If we do our inventories right, it will be a holy process. When we rest long enough to take inventory, we'll find new horizons opening up, horizons beyond all we could ask or imagine.

Joy in Suffering: Katherine and Jay Wolf
00:49:43

Have you ever found yourself in a situation that you could have never seen coming? This week's episode features two of our great friends, Katherine and Jay Wolf

The Wolf's share with us an inspiring story that completely changed the trajectory of their lives.

However, it is in these times of growth where we can actually come alive and  begin to experience freedom like never before. These freedoms often times allow us to step into and begin seeing the full potential of the uniquely designed and wonderfully made children that God has created us to be.

Helping Children Overcome Anxiety: Sissy Goff, M. Ed., LPC-MHSP
00:43:54

In this week's episode, we had the wonderful opportunity of speaking with Sissy Goff. With over 27 years of professional experience walking alongside children and adolescents, she provides us with encouraging steps on how to raise young men and women in today's society that is constantly being overstimulated. Our children need to see and hear us living with the confidence that we are equipped to overcome the anxiety that lingers in our world today. Sissy walks us through how to empower our children and teenagers to be the brave and independent individuals that they were created to be.

Sissy Goff, M.Ed., LPC-MHSP is the Director of Child and Adolescent Counseling at Daystar Counseling Ministries in Nashville, Tennessee, where she works alongside her counseling assistant/pet therapist, Lucy the Havanese. Since 1993, she has been helping girls and their parents find confidence in who they are and hope in who God is making them to be, both as individuals and families.
