Episode 12: Rejection Doesn't Make You A Reject: Church And Race Relations with Dr. Anita Phillips

Welcome back, family! Glad you are here for another episode of We’re Going There because today, we’re doing just that.

The interview with today’s guest went nothing like expected and I’m truly grateful it didn’t. Dr. Anita Phillips is a learner, teacher, and therapist who spits wisdom like rappers spit bars.

You will be challenged to:

•• Actively seek out those who are excluded

•• Play a part in redeeming someone else’s story

•• Include those who feel like outsiders

•• Redeeming the Church

Thanks for listening in today! It would mean so much to me if you honored and thanked Dr. Anita by tagging her for what you learned today at @DrAnitaPhillips and @BiancaOlthoff. Two lucky winners will receive a copy of my book How To Have Your Life Not Suck which talks about this very topic of inclusion.

If you haven’t already subscribed or reviewed the podcast, feel free to do so today! And by the way, since we are talking about redeeming church, I’m being an inviter and inviting you to The Father’s House Orange County’s online experience. You can watch on YouTube, Facebook, and on the website. We have digital community groups AROUND THE WORLD and we have a spot just for you.

Tuesday Truths: Nothing Is Impossible

Tuesday Truths: Nothing is Impossible

Impossible is a word that gets thrown around by people who find it easier to live in a world that they've been given, rather than to explore the power that they have to change it!

Impossible is where God begins, and miracles is what God does!

Bonus Episode: Finding Your Word for the Year with Bianca Juarez Olthoff

Welcome to 2021 Friends! I'm doing a bonus episode on How to get Your Word for the Year.

I'm very excited to take you down the process of setting this as an intention for the year. To keep it easy, I've condensed this into 5 simple steps.

  1. Pause
  2. Think or Visualize
  3. Create a list of words
  4. Review and refine
  5. Ask yourself: Am I interested or am I committed?

Remember, this is not a magical formula to get you the answers you want for the year. This is a calibrating anchor to come back to whenever you need a reminder of the intention that have you set for yourself this year.

Friends, because of what's going on in the world, TFHOC has decided to open our church team conference to everyone this year. Register today for FREE for TFHOC's 2021 Team Conference.

I hope you enjoyed this bonus episode and guess what friends... Season 2 of the podcast is coming soon!! I can't wait to share with you who's going to be there and who's going to pour into your life!!

Episode 10: How To Step-Up In Step-Parenting With Parker Olthoff

Hi friends! It’s our very last episode of season one of We’re Going There and I thought long and hard about HOW to end this season and what better way to talk about something that I NEVER publicly talk about: STEP-PARENTING.

Now before you think you don’t relate to the topic, let me beg to differ. Though you may not be a stepparent, 50% of those listening probably have a stepparent.

I have a very special guest joining me for this conversation. My favorite son and favorite footballer player, Parker Mason Olthoff. We will share several personal stories and we will hear:

  • The effects of divorce on all families
  • An honest perspective from a child of divorce
  • Statistics on the emotional effects of divorce on children
  • What healthy parenting can produce

For the struggling stepparents, keep going. You never know how God can use you.

For stepkids out there, go thank your stepparent for doing the best they could.

For the bio parents who married the saint that took on your kids, show them some love.

If this podcast was a gift to you, would you do a gift for me? Subscribe to this podcast, rate it, and share it with your friends. My hope is to continue to plant seeds of faith, hope, and love into ears around the world.

Thanks for joining for my first season. I’m so grateful for you!

Episode 05: Life After Death - What we can learn from those suffering from depression and suicide with Kayla Stoecklein

Today I’m talking about depression, but from a narrative standpoint of loving and living with someone battling depression. Most of the conversations around this topic are from the vantage point of the one dealing with depression, but today we are learning from a dear friend, Kayla Stoecklein, who lived through the pain of watching a loved one battle and take their life due to mental health issues.

You can find out more about Kayla’s story in her book Fear Gone Wild.

If you feel like you might be experiencing depression or even just feeling a general lack of enthusiasm for life, consider reaching out to a mental health professional (a counselor, a psychologist, a social worker). If that feels a bit intimidating, make a commitment to open up to a friend, a family member, a pastor or someone else you trust and can be vulnerable with. Loneliness and isolation are like oxygen on the fire of depression—it can worsen or intensify what you’re already struggling with.

My friends at Onsite did a HUGE favor for me and took off $200 the registration price of their new online course called REDISCOVERING YOU.

This is not an ad. This is a gift.

Each week, you will receive a series of videos featuring our world-renowned guides and supplemental workbook content that will equip you to:

  • Identify what’s working and what’s not working in your life
  • Evaluate your relationships
  • Reconnect with who you were before the world told you who to be
  • Understand how your past might be affecting your present and future circumstances
  • Get clarity on where you want to go and how to get there

Know that if you are depressed, you are not alone. I’m praying for you and we have a team of people who DAILY intercede for prayer requests that come in to our church, The Father’s House OC. If you need prayer, visit TFHOC.org and submit a prayer request there or on our app. You are not alone.

Episode 04: The Secret of Living An Empowered Life with Alex Seeley

Do you ever wonder how to live out your potential? Do you want to operate at full-throttle? Today's episode is for YOU! 

In this episode we will discuss:

  • How to hear from God
  • What the role of the presence of God plays in our life
  • The importance of the Holy Spirit empowering us
  • And person stories of living a life empowered

Today I’m having a conversation with my friend Alex Seeley. She is a church leader, author, conference speaker, and she and her husband Henry are leading the church The Belonging and Co. in Nashville, Tennessee. She is a mum and wife living with a supernatural grace in her life to do exceedingly abundantly above and beyond all we can think or imagine because she—more than anyone I know—understands the power of God’s Holy Spirit living in us.

My hope is that you feel revved up and ready to live life empowered by the Spirit of God! If this podcast is a resource for you, share it on social media and tag @alexseeley and @biancaolthoff. This week I’m giving away two books to  two lucky winners. I'll be sending a copy of Alex Seeley’s newest book The Opposite Life and a copy of Robert Morris' book The God I Never Knew, which is one of my favorite books on understanding the Holy Spirit.

Share the podcast on social media to be entered to win these two books as my free gift to you. (Ends October 8, 2020)

Episode 01: All the Things you Wish you Knew with Christine Caine

Hi Friends! This is my very first podcast episode and I’m so honored you are tuning in. This whole season is packed with amazing people who aren’t just names, but actual friends or people I look up to.

Okay y’all, this could be risky to start the show with the topic we are going to discuss, but I’m a risky kinda girl. Here’s the thing: I can’t have a show about wanting to be real and honest and not talk about one of my hardest struggles. And who better than to shoot it straight than Christine Caine?!

If you don’t know Christine, she’s a petite Greek Aussie with blonde hair and a biblical bite. She may be small, but she is mighty. In addition to freeing slaves as the founder of A21, empowering women as the founder of Propel Women, and preaching the gospel around the world, she was also my boss. I worked at A21—a global anti-trafficking organization—for almost 7 years. The work was gloriously exhausting and devastatingly beautiful. But one conversation sticks out to me as one of the most profound of my life. THAT is what I’m going to talk about in this episode!

Christine is a best-selling author, profound communicator and loyal mom and wife, but her greatest strength is she has died a thousands deaths and has allowed the Spirit of God to lead to the most interesting parts of the world. My hope is that she teaches us today how to do the same.

Share this podcast with your friends and tag @ChristineCaine and @BiancaOlthoff because sharing is caring!

I would LOVE it if you subscribed and wrote a review! As a token of my appreciation, I’d love to give you a 6-session video Bible study and guide for FREE! All you have to do is write a review, take a snapshot of the review and email it to podcast@inthenameoflove.org and you’ll be sent your FREE gift.

We can’t wait to connect with you next week as we welcome Bob Goff!
