Nobody’s Victim with Kathy Barnette | 1054
2772

Kathy Barnette grew up in poverty on a pig farm in southern Mississippi. The culture would say she was a victim of her circumstances—poor, black, raised by a single mother—but Kathy never saw herself that way. Instead, she did something about her circumstances. Today, she is an author, a speaker, a homeschool mom, a news commentator and a candidate for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 4th congressional district. Listen in and be encouraged by her powerful story! **Find links and more under PODCASTS at HeidiStJohn.com**

The Woman Who Saved Thanksgiving | 1053
1012

In Thank You, Sarah: The Woman Who Saved Thanksgiving by Laurie Halse Anderson, we see a glimpse of Sarah Hale’s spirit. She wrote persistently to officials in many levels of government promoting the observance of Thanksgiving as a unified national holiday. Not a woman to take “No” for an answer, Sarah kept on writing. For four decades and five Presidencies, Sarah wrote. She believed that observing Thanksgiving was a way that we, as a nation, could be unified. In October, 1863, President Lincoln, perhaps in response to an editorial Hale had published in the magazine she edited, read a Thanksgiving proclamation to the American people. We are still blessed by it today. **Find links and more under PODCASTS at HeidiStJohn.com**

Love Your Family Well This Thanksgiving | 1051
1519

Have you ever had a moment where you wondered if there was something else—something “more important” that you could be doing instead of shepherding and raising children? If so, you’re not alone. The culture today has devalued motherhood in more ways than one. Today I’ll be encouraging you to love your family well in this season. Yes, it’s a hard season for many reasons—but God is calling us back to Himself, and to our families. Listen in and be encouraged. **Find links and more under PODCASTS at HeidiStJohn.com**

Grace in Grieving | 1049

In the last three years, I’ve been touched by suicide more than I ever imagined I could be.

Bring Back Manly Men | 1048
1318

Vogue Magazine recently had a dress-wearing man on the cover of their magazine. In response to this, Candace Owens said, “There is no society that can survive without strong men. The East knows this. In the west, the steady feminization of our men at the same time that Marxism is being taught to our children is not a coincidence. It is an outright attack.” I agree with her. Today we’ll talk about this and about where our confidence should be in times of struggle.​ **Find links and more under PODCASTS at HeidiStJohn.com**

1428

I am a woman of prayer—but if I am honest, I have been discouraged these past several weeks. Every day feels like groundhog day. I often lose track of what day it is as this thing drags on and on. It's like we stepped out of our daily lives and into a George Orwell novel. So how do we hang on to the peace of Christ?

Kids are usually more aware of the evil in this world that we give them credit for. There are plenty of opportunities for them to get a glimpse of evil, from magazine covers in grocery store checkout aisles to the images of real-life tragedies that are constantly present on the news and online. It’s part of living in a fallen world. Our kids need to know that God loves and protects them. **Find links and more at HeidiStJohn.com**

Covid has exposed a massive weakness, but by God’s grace, we will see the fruit of God’s grace and mercy as we adopt an attitude of repentance and a desire to walk with God has His own “set apart” people.

Know Your Adversary | 1031
740

If we are going to be victorious in the battle between good and evil, we need to know our adversary. Satan’s name reveals much about his character. The title Satan is used fifty-two times in the Bible. It literally means “the adversary” or “the one who opposes.” He is also called the devil, a word that is used more than thirty times in the Bible and means “slanderer” or “accuser.” Regardless of what name he is called, the point is clear: we have a real enemy who wants to take us down.  ***If you liked today's podcast, you'll love Prayers for the Battlefield!

“Your body is dependent on this drug.”  Those are the words I heard from my physician nearly three years ago when I began experiencing seizures as a result of forgetting to take a prescription drug that I had been taking for over 25 years. “Benzodiazepines,” I was told as I sat sobbing in my doctor’s office, “are harder to get off of than heroin.” Millions of people are struggling with anxiety and millions more know how hard it is to break free from them. Today, my friend Melissa joins me as I talk very candidly about my struggle to get off of anxiety medicine and offer hope to anyone who is struggling to do the same thing. There is hope!

Good Roots, Good Fruit | 1018
728

As a mother, I like to think of myself as a bit of an arborist. Arborists are basically tree doctors. I’m basically a kid doctor. Right? Anyway. Arborists are awesome. They’ll come in and inspect your tree, let you know if it needs to be pruned, and suggest things that will help you keep your trees healthy. Healthy trees need pruning—just like children. Notice a bad attitude? It’s time for some loving pruning! Watch for any sign of infection. Make sure they get the right amount of sun. Healthy trees need good soil. So do healthy children. The “soil” a healthy child needs is the rich soil of the Bible. Water daily with prayer and then watch for good fruit. It may take time, but keep at it! **Find links and more at HeidiStJohn.com***

On The Other Side of Sorrow | 1017

Noble Alexander was born on February 12, 1934 to Cristobal and Beryl Alexander in San German Oriente, Cuba. He served as an assistant pastor in Cuba from 1959-1962. On March 20, 1962, after preaching a sermon on the origin of sin, he was ambushed and taken to prison where he was tried and convicted of conspiracy to assassinate Fidel Castro, the Communist leader of Cuba. At issue was his sermon, which security forces interpreted to be a veiled reference to Castro’s regime. Noble served over 22 years in prison where he endured hard labor, starvation and lengthy time in solitary confinement. Listen in today as I answer questions from listeners and encourage you to hang in there. For the Believer, JOY is always coming.  Don’t give up! ***Find Links and More at HeidiStJohn.com***

God’s Blessings are Inside God’s Boundaries | 1012
1225

Like many of you, I am in the role of a spiritual example and teacher to my children—and God takes it seriously. He views us as His representatives—He has given us the honor of being His ambassadors. Leviticus contains a lot of rules and regulations that are no longer in place because of the death and resurrection of Jesus—we have been set free from the law—but it’s important that we understand how serious God is about living in a way that honors Him! Do you want God’s blessing?  Live in a way that honors Him! ***Find more at HeidiStJohn.com***

With God, All Things are Possible | 1011
780

The story of Jesus’ encounter with a rich man offers us an incredible insight into the heart of human beings. When the disciples how the rich man could not leave his riches to follow Jesus, they rightly thought of their own inward struggles. They were absolutely right to ask Jesus who in the world can be saved, in light of their own sin and selfishness. Jesus answered by famously saying, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God!”  Don’t forget to catch the debates tonight! ***Find links and more at HeidiStJohn.com***

Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Legacy of Liberalism | 1008

Today, I’ll be talking about the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg — are Christians right to memorialize and praise her? Also, let’s talk about forgiveness! Have you ever corrected a child and walked away feeling like the attitude was not quite what you were hoping for? Like the infraction may have been addressed but the heart issue was still there? It can be frustrating, but mama, stay in there. More often than not, the culprit is a lack of forgiveness.​ ***Find links mentioned and more at HeidiStJohn.com***

Can you imagine what it would have been like to follow Jesus (literally) as He moved in crowds of people?  In Matthew chapter 9, we get a wonderful glimpse into the mission and ministry of Jesus. The entire chapter is a wonderful window into the heart in Jesus. He wants us to believe in Him.

Does Your Faith Speak? | 1004
1246

One of the themes of my life has been learning how to publicly proclaim my faith.  My women’s conference, “Faith that Speaks'' reaches thousands of women every year with one goal in mind: to stir their faith to action.  Do we love the Lord? If so, our faith should never be silent, our faith should be a faith that speaks. “Now I stand on solid ground, and I will publicly praise the Lord." Psalms 26:12 ***Find links and more at HeidiStJohn.com***

Learning to Let Go and Be Led | 1003
758

Do you remember the very first time you help your child in your arms? Do you remember the weight of responsibility and the incredible love that you felt? Of course you do. I remember feeling overwhelmed at the thought that the hospital staff would let me take home a brand new, 9 pound human being. I mean, let’s be honest… I didn’t know what I was doing! Truly, I was just making it up as I went along. Come to think of it, I’m still doing that in many respects. Most of my seven children are grown now. They are getting married and having children of their own… and I find I am navigating yet another season of motherhood that I will confess to feeling unprepared for. Motherhood is humbling in every stage and in every season. The challenge I am facing now is how to let my children leave. It is both heartbreaking and exhilarating, and I find I am leaning even into the Lord. ***Find links and more at HeidiStJohn.com***

Real Hope and Change | 1002
1477

 I will never forget the season when Barack Obama was running for president of the United States. My hunch is that you will never forget it either… his slogan is still with us today. “Hope and change.” It worked, of course. After all, who doesn’t want hope and change? We are a people in dire need of hope!  Here’s the thing though, mom: we need to tell our children the truth about hope. Hope isn’t something that we manufacture. It isn’t something we can get from a politician or even a pastor. We don’t have hope because of a policy or a medical procedure. As Christians, we have hope because of Jesus. ***Find links and more at HeidiStJohn.com***

19 years ago today, our nation was attacked in one of the worst terrorist attacks in history. Today, we’re being attacked from within.

Today, I sit down with Janel Ralat, wife of a police officer in Las Vegas to discuss what it’s like for the families of our brave men and women on the front lines and how we can support them in practical ways. ***For links mentioned in the podcast and more, please visit HeidiStJohn.com***

As parents, we have an incredible opportunity to teach our children how to thrive in times of anxiety and fear—always remembering that we can’t give what we don’t have. Since we can never know what’s around the corner, we must lean daily into the One who does. We need to be ready to give an answer for the hope that we have in Christ—starting with our children.

1914

There is so much freedom in recognizing that we are not enough, yet we are bombarded with a message to the contrary. Jesus is our enough-ness, and when we believe that, we can walk in the rest of His plan for us. All we need to do is look to the cross, and that tells us all we need to know about our value.  Today in part 1 we're talking about the first three of five myths culture is telling us. I know you'll love Allie. She's one of my favorite millennials! ***Find links and transcription at HeidiStJohn.com***

Raising Kids Requires Proactive Discipleship | 963
1191

Maybe there's a silver lining in the 'Rona. One of our kids has needed some extra focus on character building, and too much activity - even really good activity, can hinder that development of fruit. Our kids need focused discipleship as they grow, and we have to take the time to do that proactively. Today I'm sharing a little bit of what that looks like in the St. John house.

God is in Control | 958
1437

Jesus reached out to the lepers at great personal risk. Likewise, we need to be who God says we are and be loving the body of Christ. We need to be involved with each other, not forsaking the gathering of believers, and spending time in prayer. The power of prayer isn't based on anything that we do. The God to whom we pray is the Source of the power of prayer. Prayers puts us in touch with our Creator and we can expect incredible things. He can and He will answer us according to His timing and His will. Let's be believers of action and trust Him as we move forward. God is in control, and we are not alone. ***Find links and transcription at HeidiStJohn.com/Podcast***

A South Texas county just announced it will arrest people who don't VOLUNTARILY self-quarantine after they test positive for the rona. What is happening to our nation? Today, I'll be talking about hope in light of the very real threat of Marxism here in the United States. It was specifically Marx’s ideas, according to the “Black Book of Communism,” that took 100 million lives worldwide in the last century. How many more will they take in this one? That’s up to you and me. We can’t say we weren’t warned. Join us in fasting and prayer for our nation July 10-17, 2020. ***For resources, links, and transcription, please go to HeidiStJohn.com***

What Privilege Do We Really Have? | 943
1175

God wants you to have a voice in the culture, without living under an umbrella of shame. Right now, our country is being driven by a spirit of division, and Christians are not exempt. Our responsibility is to offer the reconciliation offered to all at the cross, not to absorb this false sense of shame just to make others feel better. the only way we will escape this is to invite God into our public spaces because we need the wisdom that only comes from God. We all have one privilege offered. Listen and be encouraged! ** You can find the transcript, links, and resources mentioned in this podcast on my website at HeidiStJohn.com ***

Mailbox Monday: Looking At Choices & Cultural Issues Through the Lens of Scripture | 941
1318

It's Mailbox Monday today and I'm answering your questions! Human beings are obsessed with choice and the questions are getting more complicated. We talk about choice as believers, we always want to come back to the Solid Rock of Truth we find in the Bible and apply it. Because we have access to Truth, we can see when we are being lied to. Even though your voice might shake and you might have your life threatened, Truth is worth defending, but you have to know it to be able to defend it. Today I'm answering questions about working or staying home, the concept of white privilege, and how we look at cultural issues through the lens of Scripture. ** You can find the transcript, links, and resources mentioned in this podcast on my website at HeidiStJohn.com ***

Is it Really About the Gospel or is it About a Movement? with Bethany Bomberger | 940
2133

Resources mentioned in podcast and transcription can be found on my website here.

It’s hard to go a few minutes on social media or the news without noticing a post or story concerning race relations these days. It’s always good to be aware, but we must learn to make a habit of researching movements and organizations that might feel good on the surface—but under slight discernment are rotten to the core. We are told in the Bible to be wise, and social situations are surely no exception. My friend Bethany Bomberger and I are talking about Black Lives Matter and how it fits when looked at through the lens of God’s Word. Listen in. It’s an important discussion!

How Can We Know If An Attack is Spiritual? | 937
1282

How do we know if something going on is spiritual in nature? How can we tell if we're under attack by evil? Many of you are asking me why I keep saying this current situation is from the enemy. Today, let's look at examples in the Word so that we can observe how the adversary works. We can see very specific, telltale signs that point to demonic attack. God says we must be on guard against the schemes of the devil and today, we'll put on the armor together!  Seeing these attacks for what they are help us know how to handle them in our daily lives. Listen in! I think you'll be encouraged.

Today I’m talking with my good friend and staff member, Marlene. She happens to be black, Puerto Rican, and is married to a white American. Marlene and her husband have three beautiful children. Marlene is passionate about the issues we’re facing right now, and so today, we’re talking about how we got here and how we can move forward toward unity. Right now, our country is embroiled in a divisive and dangerous argument about race. This isn’t black vs. white, friends.  It’s good vs. evil, and we need to see it that way while we work to heal the divisions in our world.

‘Rona, Racism, the Radical Left, and the Connection Between Them | 933
1585
We are at a place where we need to do some soul searching in our country. We are having to talk about things that we don’t like to talk about as we are in the middle of a grab for power and control of a narrative like I’ve never seen before. When we stand up against the narrative being pushed by the media and the radical left, we see division in our churches, families, and our closest communities. This agenda is unearthing issues that we need to deal with for sure, but they are not the issues the radical left thinks we need to correct. We can not sacrifice truth on the altar of misguided mercy or be shamed into thinking we are in sin when we are not. God is at work,  and unless and until we open our eyes to see what is happening with this media driven narrative we will continue to fall into their trap.  This is about control, and we need to be discerning and see the big picture so we don’t inadvertently perpetuate a misguided message.

People of Faith Instead of People of Fear | 932
1320
We are surrounded by situations in our culture that are causing many of us to fear, and this podcast was recorded before the rioting even started. But our God offers peace in the midst of panic. He has given us Hope and a command to pray for our nation. We can be people of faith instead of people of fear, because we know sin is part of this fallen world, and we know who has overcome it! Join me as I plan a date for us to fast and pray together.

Radical Agenda: Why Parents Need to {really} Know Their Child’s Doctor with Dr. Rebecca Huizen – Part 2 | 931
2260
Join me for part two of my interview with Dr. Rebecca Huizen! In recent years, we have seen an escalating push to allow tweens and teens “autonomy” with regard to their health care decisions. Teens have access to abortion without parents knowledge or consent. Doctors are asking invasive and leading questions away from parents since mom and dad are being told they can no longer sit in on routine doctor appointments and are often shamed into relinquishing their rights are parents by zealous doctors and even office staff. But why? Join me today for part two with my guest who is a Board-certified pediatrician. What she says will startle and educate you. Listen in and know your rights as parents to protect your children.

Christianity in the Age of Corona | 929
1243
I’m actually speechless at the way that Christians are responding to a situation that is literally robbing us of freedom, potentially generational in nature.  We could see a systemic loss of freedom in our nation, and we are being criticized for fighting for it. It is not wrong to value liberty, and to call it being “addicted to personal freedom” is mind-numbing to me. Yes, we need to be salt and light. We need to be wise as serpents and gentle as doves. We need not sacrifice our liberty to do it!

Fearless Friday: A Theology for Suffering | 927
1426
Jesus knew how hard this world was going to be. In His wisdom, He laid the groundwork for us—and we need to lay the groundwork for our kids. Jesus showed us how to suffer and not lose heart, how to view suffering, and how to view God in the middle of the struggle. We can honor Him without denying how difficult this situation really is, and I’m sharing some practical tips for doing that right now. He is listening, He loves you, and He can be trusted.

Liberty for All or Liberty for None? with Bill Jack | 926
1495

My guest today says, “If we don’t have liberty for all, we have liberty for none.” Bill Jack is right on as he’s encouraging Christians that it is indeed acceptable to know what our liberties are how to stand in them and live in obedience to our Higher Authority, established in the Bible. We are a government of the people, by the people, for the people, and we need the courage to live like it in these challenging and confusing times.

Who is “Caesar” in the United States? and Other Important Questions About Freedom with Rick Green | 925
2762
Many Christians are using the phrase  “render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s,” to justify a passive approach to government overreach, but do Christians even know what that means today in the United States?  Most of us weren’t taught what the Constitution actually says beyond a few popular sections—but for the first time in many of our lives, not knowing is dangerous. I’m honored today to have Rick Green, founder of Constitution Coach, here to answer your questions about the Constitutionality of many of the situations we’re facing today. Listen in, let’s learn together about the US Constitution and its role in our lives today.

Birth Story Part 2: Practical Tips for the Dads | 924
1546
On Wednesday we heard from my daughter and her husband as they shared their birth story and the challenges that came with it. Today we’re finishing the “living room” conversation about the birth of their baby girl, and Ryan has practical tips for the dads from his own experience—even the third time around. This is a raw, real look inside our tight-knit family… and I think it will bless and encourage you.
Family and a caring community is so important during pregnancy and the postpartum. I’ll be honest: you guys, the first week of Junie’s birth was hard. We all know the weeks around having a baby are expected to be challenging, but adding the stress of this COVID situation is certainly not helping things. Savannah struggled with severe postpartum anxiety—and the Lord helped us through in some pretty amazing ways.
Many of us know someone who’s pregnant right now (you might even be pregnant yourself!) and I think you’ll be encouraged to hear Savannah and  Ryan share their story—unfiltered—about what they learned and what they did that helped.

What Can We DO While We Are Feeling Stuck? with Kathy Koch | 921

It’s easy to feel out of sorts these days, and our children are bearing the same stress we are, they are just perceiving and handling it differently. My good friend Dr Kathy Koch is sharing an exercise we can do to help our kids articulate what they are feeling and help them see that they are in control of something in their lives. Personally, I think it would be good for the whole family, and I took my own notes this time!

Nathan Wilkins, former Coronado based Navy SEAL, has just announced his candidacy as a Republican running for a seat in California’s 50th Congressional District. Currently working in the House of Representatives as an Innovation Fellow, Wilkins has always held a passion to serve his community and his country, first as a SEAL and now as a congressional candidate.
Wilkins is passionate about the sanctity of the traditional family unit, protection of unborn children, community safety and preserving virtue in our current school system. As a veteran he understands what it means to defend the United States; a country in which opportunity abounds for all, particularly without heavy handed government control.
He is passionate about his beliefs and thrives in serving those around him. Born and raised in Reedley, California, Wilkins is familiar with California policy. Similarly, joining the Navy in 2007 brought him to San Diego where he remained active duty until 2018. He is currently serving the House Committee on Energy and Commerce Minority staff, supporting on technology and cybersecurity issues. Nathan is married to Lindsay Wilkins and together they have two children.

Elizabeth Johnston is an activist, blogger, speaker, and best-selling author who educates and inspires the public on the burning social and moral issues of the day. She and her husband Patrick have been pro-life ministry leaders for many years and home educate their 10 beautiful children. The growing threat to America’s children and the vicious attack on religious liberty is what dynamited Elizabeth out of her comfort zone to inspire a nation of belittled conservatives and Christians to “come out of their closets” and boldly take their country back. Elizabeth regularly posts viral commentary and witty videos which have netted over 70 million views. Elizabeth has been featured on many major media outlets, such as Fox & Friends, The New York Times, The Blaze and Christian Broadcasting Network, as she has become a thought leader on topics of importance to families. The pulse behind all her activism and cultural commentary is her love for her family and her Savior, Jesus Christ.

Elizabeth Johnston is an activist, blogger, speaker, and best-selling author who educates and inspires the public on the burning social and moral issues of the day. She and her husband Patrick have been pro-life ministry leaders for many years and home educate their 10 beautiful children. The growing threat to America’s children and the vicious attack on religious liberty is what dynamited Elizabeth out of her comfort zone to inspire a nation of belittled conservatives and Christians to “come out of their closets” and boldly take their country back. Elizabeth regularly posts viral commentary and witty videos which have netted over 70 million views. Elizabeth has been featured on many major media outlets, such as Fox & Friends, The New York Times, The Blaze and Christian Broadcasting Network, as she has become a thought leader on topics of importance to families. The pulse behind all her activism and cultural commentary is her love for her family and her Savior, Jesus Christ.

Suzanne Phillips is a storyteller with a desire for connection, a teacher with a heart for life transformation and a visionary with a commitment to the family and discipleship. A radical conversion to Christianity followed a three-year season of loss setting Suzanne on a pursuit of truth. The revelation that Truth is a person rather than an idea initiated a new-found freedom and a desire to share the hope of that freedom with anyone who would listen.
Suzanne, along with her husband Lane and Dr. Kathy Koch of Celebrate Kids, is a co-founder Ignite the Family with a mission to encourage, educate and equip parents to live out God’s design for family. In addition, Suzanne is the co-founder of Legacy Community Academy, a k-12 leadership academy partnering with the family to develop servant leaders through intentional education.
She is wife to Lane, mama to Ansley, Ward, and Lilly and mom – in – love to Will. At any given time, you will find Suzanne with a book in her hand, people at her table, an idea on her mind, and family in her heart. She is motivated by seeing others live out their unique calling and is passionate about the role of both family and education in leading the next generation to do so.

Hey, friends. This is Heidi St. John. Welcome to the podcast. Today is Wednesday, January 22. This is episode number 875, and I think I’m getting my voice back, and I’m a little fired up. Stick around. I think you’re going to be encouraged.
So lots going on right now in the culture. You guys know that I’m a huge fan of the March for Life. That activity starts today in Washington, DC, and the rally, the actual march is happening on Friday, January 24, so just two days until that happens. I hope you guys are engaged in that process, praying for them. There have been lots of similar marches happening around the country. People standing in solidarity, saying that, “We will defend until their very last breath the lives of the unborn in this nation.” I saw a really wonderful interview the other day with a young man who has Down syndrome and he was saying he does not want abortion to be illegal. He wants it to be unthinkable, and so I stand with him and I hope you guys are going to pray for the March of Life starting today in Washington, DC with the rally happening this Friday, January 24.
Speaking of January the 24th I am headed to Frisco, Texas in just a couple of days. I’ll be speaking for the Texas Homeschool Coalition Homeschool Moms Winter Summit, and we are going to have a hootin’ hollerin’ good time. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/heidistjohn/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/heidistjohn/support

Hey, everybody. This is Heidi St. John. How are you guys doing? Today is Wednesday, January 15th. It’s the Freedom Rally day here in Washington State, and we’re going to cover a lot of ground today. Stick around. I think you’re going to be encouraged.
Thanks for tuning in today. I have pre-recorded this podcast in an effort to be able to be out of the studio on the 15th of January. If you’re getting this podcast downloaded in the morning and you live anywhere near Olympia, Washington, I’m going to be there today for the Freedom Rally that starts at noon on the steps of the Capitol in Olympia, Washington. And if you’re interested at all in protecting your freedoms, if you’re interested in protecting your right to choose whether or not your children will be mandated to be vaccinated … You guys, you’ve heard me talk about this before. My kids are vaccinated, but I believe that where there is a risk, there should be a choice, and parental rights are being stripped away from parents at an unprecedented rate.
So there’s a lot of things going on right now, not the least of which is comprehensive sex education, which is making a return to Washington State with a vengeance. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/heidistjohn/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/heidistjohn/support

Hey everybody, how you guys do and happy Monday to you. Today is Monday, January 13th we are almost halfway through the month of January. I hope the new year has been a good one so far for you. I’m excited today because it’s Mailbox Monday and we’re going to cover a little bit of news, a little bit of culture, a little bit of politics, a little bit of awesome gospel centered family stuff that’s happening. Stick around, I think you’re going to be encouraged.
So we have made it to the middle of January, almost. I keep thinking it’s January 15th because my head is in the game for a rally that’s happening. So if you guys live in Washington state, if you’re anywhere in Washington state, coming out to Olympia for the freedom rally, the 2020 freedom rally is happening, starting at noon through, I want to say noon through probably about three o’clock on the Capitol Steps in Olympia and you guys, if you’re tired of the government overreaching, if you want to be able to choose for your own family, everything from vaccinations to education, your legislators need to know that you want them to protect your freedom. And so we’re going to be meeting at noon on the Capitol Steps in Olympia. We are actually closing the Firmly Planted Homeschool Resource Center in Vancouver and taking as many of our families as we can up to Olympia for the freedom rally.
So join me in Olympia on the Capitol Steps at noon, Wednesday, January 15th we’re going to rally for freedom over the overreaching cha... --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/heidistjohn/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/heidistjohn/support

Free to Follow: The Beauty of Being Led by the Lord | 869
1317
Mothers are many things. We are nurturers, chauffeurs, cooks, short-order cooks and first-aid providers. We are shoulders to cry on, advice-givers, drivers ed teachers, and broken heart menders. But the most important role we play in the lives of our kids is the role of teacher. As a homeschool mom, I learned a lesson very early in my mothering journey. Where students and teachers are concerned, it’s the teacher learns the most. After all, we can’t teach what we don’t understand. David acknowledges His need to be taught by the Lord in Psalm 143:10. That means we need to learn to follow. Are we being led by the Lord?  Today’s question is from a wife whose husband is emotionally absent. Your marriage is worth fighting for!

Faith—Meet Culture with Guest James Gottry | 867
1793
When Christians notice drag queens in the library, or hear that P&G is removing the feminine symbol from the Always brand of women’s sanitary products, or learn that their child’s schools are opening girls’ bathrooms to biological males, what are we to do? The answer lies in the Bible. We are to not just curse the darkness, but proclaim the light. We should be a voice of truth and reason and oppose things that are bad for children, bad for society, etc, BUT we must also be demonstrating in word and deed what is GOOD for society. Join me today for a lively conversation with my friend James Gottry, who serves as the vice president of public policy for the Dr. James Dobson Family Institute.

So I hope you guys had a fantastic Christmas. I had a good Christmas with my family. Oh my goodness. Jay and I have done so much entertaining over the holidays this year, and the other day, I think, I don’t even think I got out of bed. I’m not even kidding. I was so tired, I woke up and I just was like, what day is it? It’s like Christmas falls on a Wednesday and then Friday makes no sense and Thursday feels like it should be Sunday, and I’m in this sort of weird vortex. And so basically I just took a break and then I got up, did some dishes, sat on the couch for a little while, tried to find my equilibrium, and I have a feeling that I’m not alone. So moment of silence for all you mamas who are just trying to figure it out.
All right you guys, quick couple things.

Stick around, I think you’re going to be encouraged.
All right you guys, so today’s a really special day. I think this might be the first time in seven years of doing this podcast, that I have had a podcast ready for you on Christmas day. And I’m going to just spend a little bit of time just encouraging you about why we really need Christmas. And Max Lucado wrote something that I thought was really encouraging, and he said,
“Do we really need another Christmas? We sing the same songs, put up the same tree, and we shop for the same socks and sweaters every year. Is the message of peace on earth, goodwill toward men, still relevant? Still possible? Consider the story behind Christmas. Hollywood would recast Christmas. Joseph’s collar is way too blue. Mary is green from inexperience. The couple’s star power just doesn’t match the bill. Too obscure. Too simple. The story warrants some headliners. A square-jawed Joseph. Someone of the Clooney vintage. And Mary needs a beauty mark and glistening teeth. Angelina Jolie-ish. And what about the shepherds? Do they sing? If so, perhaps Bono and U2? Do we really need another Christmas? Yes, we sing the same songs, put up the same trees, shop for the same socks and sweaters every year. Is the message of peace on earth, goodwill toward men still relevant? Still possible?

Real Christianity with Dale Partridge | 857
2078
As Christians, we know we’re supposed to be holy, set apart, and different than the world. But the reality is—the lives of many Christians look a lot more like the culture than like Christ. The question the devout are seeking today is: What does it really look like to follow Christ in a culture of darkness? Join me and my friend, author Dale Partridge as we talk about this very important topic!

All right, you guys. Well, I’m excited that you’ve joined me today at my little corner of the internet. Thank you so much for tuning in. Lots of stuff has been happening in our house lately, not the least of which is we took our daughter, Sierra, to the airport the day before Thanksgiving. She flew all the way around the world to Europe and ended up in Dublin, Ireland where she’s going to be spending the next couple of months kind of gallivanting around Europe, as young adults do when they don’t have a family and have that season of their life. 
But, I got to tell you guys, dropping her off at the airport … I mean, she’s over there with a friend and she’s going to be fine. I’m not worried about her safety. But I’ll tell you, even though she’s a grown woman coming up on 30 years old, for goodness sake, --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/heidistjohn/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/heidistjohn/support

If you want to have your question considered. Here’s a couple of things I want you guys to remember. You need to submit your questions to me. Don’t send them to me on social media, on Instagram or any of my social media outlets. Those are looked at by staff members and it’s hard for them to get those questions off of social media and into the form that we have set up for you.
If you want to reach out to me, please do it at heidistjohn.com/mailboxMonday. Please put all the information in there that you would like for me to have, but there’s a caveat. Can you please keep it short? Short and sweet and to the point and actually it’s really awesome if right before you start your... --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/heidistjohn/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/heidistjohn/support

The Discipline of Prayer | 838
1172
We often expect God to work in real-time like our smartphones, don’t we?  While He can (and sometimes does) grant answers immediately, He often doesn’t. Rather than blame Him, we can take a step back to realize it took us longer than “immediate” to get into our current mess, and will take longer than a spiritual hot second to bring it into order. Herein lies the “discipline” of prayer. Mama Bear, let’s get wise about how we approach the throne so we can actually know we come in confidence, rather than coming in desperation and confusion.

[Heidi] Hey everybody, this is Heidi St. John, welcome to the podcast. Today is Monday, October 28th. This is episode number 837. You guys, we’re at the end of October, what in the world? I’m not even sure when that happened, but I’m going to talk to you about one of my favorite topics today and that is my journey away from anxiety and sleep medication, and kind of what the Lord’s done in my life and how I got there. I’ve got a guest on the show today, and I love her. She’s my sister, Haley. Stick around, I think you’re going to be encouraged.
So, lots of stuff to talk about today. Several weeks ago, I posted on my Facebook page that I had suffered, if you guys have read any of my books or listened to my podcast for very long then you know, that I have shared this story of growing up in a home that was less than ideal, to say the least. Being diagnosed with anxiety when I was in my early twenties and then my struggle with just anxiety and panic, and I wrote about it on Facebook because the Lord has really set me free from that over the course of many years. There’ve been lots of things that have helped me, and I just kind of gave a shout out to a few of those things that the Lord has really done in my life to help me really heal and live my life from a position of strength.
I was amazed at the number of letters that came in. So I thought, “I’m going to address this today at Mailbox Monday.” One of the things I’m working on doing a little bit differently going forward, --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/heidistjohn/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/heidistjohn/support
