It's easy to slip into creating a death-grip on the wheel of our lives. Sadly, our control manages God's job very poorly. To help us all stop the madness, Cheri discusses the powerful revelations God is giving her within her 2018 word of the year, and Amy explains the counter-intuitive power of Himperfection.
If you struggle with control (tell the truth! Cheri and Amy sure do!), then this episode will help you move toward letting Jesus take the wheel. More joy and life are guaranteed when we do!
It's hard for reforming perfectionists and people-pleasers to give up control! Shannon Popkin, author of Control Girl, shares her struggle with control and how surrendering to God brought her peace and rest. Casting a new light on women of the Bible that we know well, Shannon brings fresh insight to the lessons we can learn from others' control failures.
After listening, you'll walk away in the lightness of giving up what we were never meant to carry!
In processing their interview with Ginny Yttrup, Cheri and Amy dive into the central theme of her book Home, escaping from pain. It's our human tendency to want to run from grief and hurt, but sadly, that leads us far from the help we need in Jesus.
Make sure to listen for one key question that can keep us close to Jesus in our painful seasons. By surrendering pain, it's possible to grow through it!
In this interview with Ginny Yttrup, Christian fiction writer and author of Home, she shares how she uses story to address the issues we all face-- grief, control, shame and the desire to escape.
Listen as Ginny and Cheri dish on the pros and cons of being a Highly Sensitive Person. (And as Amy fan-girls over Ginny, her favorite Christian fiction author of the year!)
