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.

The three women discuss royal banquets and beauty pageants, fasting and lamenting, and what it looks like to serve without seeing a reward or outcome. This week’s reading ends with a cliffhanger, challenging us to follow God while remembering what’s true—even when we can’t see the end of the story.

Faith in Practice Week 3 with Rebekah Lyons

For the third week of our Faith in Practice series, bestselling author and speaker Rebekah Lyons returns to the podcast, just over a year to the date! She talks with Raechel and Amanda about the surprising spiritual discipline of celebration, which can include some fierce dancing (we see you King David). The three also discuss connections between the disciplines of worship, submission, and confession and how remembrance of God’s goodness shows up in each one. As they dive deep into their discussion, the common takeaway is this—the goal of these spiritual disciplines is not about checking boxes, but growing in our relationship with God.

The three talk about serving, using Instagram carousels to memorize Scripture, and how spiritual disciplines train the heart toward Jesus. Annie tells us why she recites the Apostles’ Creed while making tea in the morning, and we learn that spiritual practices and the Body of Christ cannot exist independently from one another. Together, we can let ourselves be beginners, invite each other into the process, and pursue spiritual practices “imperfectly and with conviction.”

Advent 2020 Week 4 with Drew and Ellie Holcomb

For the final week of our Advent 2020 series, Raechel and Amanda talk with the very neighborly singer-songwriters, Drew and Ellie Holcomb. As the couple shares about the time they took cover from a tornado in the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, they also marvel at the audacity of God wrapping Himself in flesh to become one of us. Together, our musical guests play two carols and remind us that no matter where we find ourselves—whether the rim of the Grand Canyon or the stage of an empty auditorium—we can keep singing hope into the darkness. During a time when it feels like we’ve been “adventing” all year, we find comfort in the never-changing heart of the Christmas story: God is with us, always.

During the episode, they explain how Advent is Latin for “arrival,” and talk about the importance of waiting as we prepare for Christmas Day. Dave compares this year to playing an accordion and shares two of his Christmas songs (but not his funky new version of Go, Tell It on the Mountain—we have to wait for that too!). Together, the three laugh about everything from mowing lawns to Instagram characters, and they offer some comforting answers to the profoundly multilayered and hope-filled question of why Jesus came.

Together, they explore the dangers of wealth, the surprising relationship between gluttony and generosity, and why even though walking in God’s wisdom looks different depending on the times and seasons, His Word will always be a faithful guide. Bonus points if you catch how many times they mention the word “tacos” or “self-governance”!

The three dig into this week’s readings, tackling hard sayings and tough topics: what it really means to be a Proverbs 31 woman, adultery, and delighting in correction. No matter how challenging the passages may seem, they take comfort in this: all of God’s Word is good and profitable because it all helps us to know Him better.

While studying proverbs focusing on the inner life, they talk about everything from Proverbs’ unique ability to be equally convicting, painful, and sweet, to the ideal temperature for a dark chocolate peanut butter cup. Together, they celebrate the truth that these proverbs repeatedly reveal: we serve a God whose work and power are far beyond our ability or understanding. When we recognize this, we too can live out the Wilbert family mantra—“fidelity to the Word of God and not to an outcome.”

Dr. Hays’s enthusiasm captivates our hosts, from his Babylon-themed virtual background to his fondness for the word schmutz. They discuss the bizarre visions of chapters 8–12, along with apocalyptic imagery and names that could double as tongue twisters (try saying Antiochus Epiphanes a few times). However perplexing these passages are, the three continue to identify this clear truth: God’s plans are unstoppable, and one day, we will see all prophecy from His Word fulfilled.

Philippians - Week 1 |

When Jesus takes hold of us, nothing is ever the same again!

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.

Genesis Week 3 with Scott Sauls
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.

Genesis Week 1 with John Greco
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 2019 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 2019 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 2019 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
“No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear.” —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.
