Description

We know reading the Bible every day can be hard. It’s easy to feel stuck, lost, or unsure where to start. We get it. We’ve been there too. Our hope for this podcast is that it will serve as a complement to our reading plans, to encourage you on your commute to work, while you’re out for a walk, or at home making dinner. God’s Word is for you and for now. That's why our community is here and always open to you.

Holy Week & Holy Longings

As we step into Holy Week, Raechel and Amanda are joined by singer-songwriter, author, and keeper of bees Andrew Peterson. The three share stories from a life-changing trip to Israel they took together a few years ago. They talk about worship at the Western Wall, the view from the Mount of Olives, and the eye-opening experience of walking where Jesus walked. He is risen! The stories are true!

Rubble Sitting & Repentance

It's week two of Lent, and Raechel and Amanda are joined by friend and She Reads Truth devotional writer, Patti Sauls. If that last name sounds familiar, it's because Patti is also the wife of one of our favorite pastors and She Reads Truth Podcast alum, Scott Sauls.

As the group explores the book of Jeremiah, they also discuss fasting, life in Manhattan with small children, and their strong feelings about jotting down notes in their Bibles.

Joy & the Journey of Faith
2823

It’s the second week of the SRT Philippians reading plan, and Raechel and Amanda are joined by Jess Connolly! Jess is a mama, author, church planter, podcast host, and the founder of All Good Things Collective and Go + Tell Gals. She was also there for the beginning of She Reads Truth, one of the first to commit to being a “woman in the Word of God every day.” 

Jess opens up about the shape that obedience to God has taken in her life and the comfort she has found in Scripture. As Paul tells us in Philippians, we can have peace, regardless of our circumstances, as long as we have Christ.

Gratitude & God’s Upside-Down Kingdom
2357

Philippians - Week 1 |

Raechel, Amanda, and John are back together to dive into the first week of the SRT Philippians reading plan. They discuss how Paul's encouraging letter to the church at Philippi puts the upside-down nature of God's kingdom on full display: Suffering and joy go hand in hand, death has lost its sting, and every gain is counted as loss when compared to the blessing of knowing Christ. When Jesus takes hold of us, nothing is ever the same again!

Ups and Downs & Unwavering Faithfulness
3302

Raechel and Amanda are back with Kelly Minter to wrap up the last week of the SRT Genesis reading plan. They dive into the tumultuous story of Joseph, a man whose life proves suffering and blessing aren't mutually exclusive. From his heaven-born dreams to the depths of prison, all the way to the second highest office in Egypt, God was with Joseph. Kelly and our hosts talk about the power of God to bring goodness from the most trying of circumstances and the sort of faith that would make a dying man ask that his bones be buried in a distant land.

Rivals & Restoration
2701

It’s the fourth week of the SRT Genesis reading plan, and Raechel and Amanda sit down with the multi-talented Kelly Minter to go deep. With the stories of Rachel, Leah, Jacob, and Joseph open before them, they talk about jealousy and grace, wrestling with God, and waiting on the Lord’s perfect timing. Kelly opens up about the beauty that emerged from a decade of darkness in her life, and the trio discusses what it looks like to surrender our desires to the Lord.

Pencils & the Provision of God
3290

On this episode, Raechel and Amanda visit with Pastor Scott Sauls. They discuss the hard stories of Genesis, seeing glimpses of Christ throughout the Old Testament, and the comforting fact that there’s nothing we go through that Jesus hasn’t been through Himself. They explore what suffering teaches us about God, taking notes in Bibles, and why there’s nothing better than eye contact with a great dog.

Towers & Tests of Faith
3076

On this episode of the She Reads Truth podcast, Raechel and Amanda are joined by bestselling author, speaker, wife, and mama of four, Rebekah Lyons. The trio talks about everything from the Tower of Babel to their mutual love for dark chocolate-covered almonds. As they dig deep into the second week of our Genesis study, they explore God’s calling of unlikely men and women, the joy that comes from using Scripture to interpret Scripture, and why rhythms are better than resolutions.

Gardens & Good Intentions
3180

It’s the start of a new year, and She Reads Truth is going back to the beginning! On this episode of the podcast, Raechel and Amanda are joined by the She Reads Truth Content Director, John Greco, to talk about all things Genesis. They discuss the pressure of New Year’s resolutions and how our best intentions reveal the deepest longings of our hearts and ultimately point us back to the garden. Along the way, they grapple with the heaviness of sin, delight in the goodness of God’s heart, and debate the year-round use of twinkle lights.

Advent - Week 4
3112

It’s Christmas week on the She Reads Truth podcast! In this episode, Raechel and Amanda are back with She Reads Truth content director, John Greco, for part two of “Stump John.” Did Mary suffer shame? Was it really a silent night? What did the manger actually look like, and what does Indiana Jones have to do with it? Raechel talks about babies, Amanda admits her affinity for the BeeGees, and John and his Christmas socks take us deeper into the good news and great joy of Christmas.

Advent - Week 3
3151

On this episode of the She Reads Truth podcast, founders Raechel Myers and Amanda Bible Williams try to stump She Reads Truth content director, John Greco, with all their Christmas questions. When exactly was Jesus born? Was the “inn” really an inn? Were animals present? What about the wise men? How could Joseph and Mary afford to flee to Egypt? Why do we still have so many questions about a story we’ve known since we were kids? 

Armed with neon ski caps and cups of coffee, the trio ventures down these and other rabbit trails related to the Christmas story, asking, “What does Scripture actually say?” They find some answers and oddities along the way, and find, once again, that God’s Word only grows richer under the microscope of our honest questions.

Advent - Week 2
2523

Our Advent series continues with a deep-dive on the mystery of Immanuel, “God with us.” She Reads Truth’s content director, John Greco, joins Raechel and Amanda as they trace the presence of God through the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. What did God’s presence look like in the Old Testament? How does the Christmas story accomplish God’s mission of dwelling with His people? How is “God with us” our true and forever hope?

With a little help from their buddies Lewis, Spurgeon, and (Jimmy) Stewart, the trio explores the miracle of the incarnation, the glory of God’s presence, and the promise that we will dwell with the Lord forever. Amanda does some praise-handsing over Isaiah 41, John wonders where Cain and Abel brought their sacrifices, and Raechel can’t help but sing…just a little.

It’s beginning to sound a lot like Christmas in this long-awaited first Advent episode of the She Reads Truth podcast! Raechel and Amanda are joined by She Reads Truth’s content director, John Greco, as they step into the anticipation and celebration of the season. What is Advent? Why do we love it so much? What was it like to wait for the Messiah? Why did Jesus come? 

Clad in holiday shirts and socks, the group talks traditional Advent scriptures, favorite Christmas carols, and a little Charlie Brown and Linus too! John weaves a Scripture tapestry, Raechel stomps a dragon, and Amanda refuses to sing on-air—all while eagerly awaiting the arrival of Jesus, our Thrill of Hope.

Mourning and Dancing - Week 2
3431

On this episode of the She Reads Truth podcast, founders Reachel Myers and Amanda Bible Williams, and She Reads Truth content director, John Greco, go in-depth about the tension of the “already and not yet” of the gospel. How do we find beauty in brokenness? How does God enter into our trials? How do we give thanks when we are suffering? 

Amanda, Raechel, and John talk about the first Thanksgiving and how the holiday has been a delicate dance of celebration and sorrow from the start. Amanda remembers what it felt like to give thanks while her 4-year-old son was on life support. And the group discusses the right-now and future hope we have in Jesus.

Who Was at the First Thanksgiving? (History.com article)
“You never know how much you really believe anything until its truth or falsehood becomes a matter of life and death to you. It is easy to say you believe a rope to be strong and sound as long as you are merely using it to cord a box. But suppose you had to hang by that rope over a precipice. Wouldn’t you then first discover how much you really trusted it?” ―C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed

Mourning and Dancing - Week 1
2747

On this first-ever episode of the She Reads Truth podcast, founders Raechel Myers and Amanda Bible Williams go deep fast on topics of loss, grief, joy, and hope. How do celebration and sorrow coexist in the life of a believer? Does one cancel out the other? What does Scripture have to say about suffering? What does it mean to lament? Amanda reflects on her youngest son’s 11-month hospital stay, and Raechel shares about the role the Bible played in one of the darkest days of her life. The conversation isn’t light, but it’s good, honest, and hopeful.
