Have you ever felt like there isn't a place for you in the workplace or the church? Maybe you have a strong personality or are just breaking from the mold of those around you. In our latest episode, Sharon Miller and our host, Kat Armstrong, discuss what it looks like for women to really bring their whole selves to the workplace and the church through the example of bible shero, Lydia. 

Sharon Hodde Miller leads Bright City Church in Durham, NC with her husband, Ike. She is the author of two books: Free of Me, and Nice, and she has a PhD on women and calling. When she is not in quarantine she travels the country speaking, but these days she is homeschooling her three young kids!

In the latest episode of our “Sheroes of the Faith” series, Liz Rodriguez shares about how her favorite woman in the Bible, Elizabeth, models waiting faithfully for one’s deeply desired dreams and how to celebrate other women when comparing seems like the better option. Liz also shares candidly about her own experiences with waiting for her dream job. Today’s episode will leave you with an encouraging perspective on waiting for dreams and a renewed strength to choose linking arms with other women instead of comparison.

Do you ever feel like your story doesn’t matter? Or that your parts of your life, past or present, make you unloveable? Whether it seems like our world says your story is worthless or the little voice inside your head says you deserve every bit of shame you feel, too many of us struggle to see the value, beauty and potential in our lives that God does. We are so thankful that Jamie Ivey joins our host, Kat Armstrong, in today’s episode to share about how her favorite woman in the Bible can change our perspective of our stories and help us to find freedom from shame in Christ. Kat and Jamie also discuss the injustice of Ahmaud Arbery’s murder and how we can honor his story with our response. No matter who we are or what our story entails, we are never out of reach of God’s love, freedom and healing.

Do you ever feel like you are in the image management business? Today’s guest, Ashley Abercrombie sure has. And we are right there with her. Whether it’s shame over parts of our story or the fear of being insignificant, we can get trapped in trying to present ourselves in a certain way to others and to ourselves. Kat and Ashley’s conversation about Phoebe, a deaconess in the early church, will be a game-changer for you though. Through the story of Phoebe, Ashely shares about why the power of ordinary faithfulness is what really matters and why we have value regardless of our stage of life, story or seemingly insignificant actions.

Romans 16: 1-2 "I commend to you our sister Phoebe, who is a servant[a] of the church in Cenchreae. So you should welcome her in the Lord in a manner worthy of the saints and assist her in whatever matter she may require your help. For indeed she has been a benefactor of many—and of me also."
