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.

Verses:

1 John 5:12-13 "Now this is the confidence we have before Him: Whenever we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears whatever we ask, we know that we have what we have asked Him for."

Acts 16:11-15 "We boarded a boat at Troas and sailed straight across to the island of Samothrace, and the next day we landed at Neapolis. 12 From there we reached Philippi, a major city of that district of Macedonia and a Roman colony. And we stayed there several days.

13 On the Sabbath we went a little way outside the city to a riverbank, where we thought people would be meeting for prayer, and we sat down to speak with some women who had gathered there. 14 One of them was Lydia from Thyatira, a merchant of expensive purple cloth, who worshiped God. As she listened to us, the Lord opened her heart, and she accepted what Paul was saying. 15 She and her household were baptized, and she asked us to be her guests. “If you agree that I am a true believer in the Lord,” she said, “come and stay at my home.” And she urged us until we agreed."

Luke 8:1-3 "Soon afterward Jesus began a tour of the nearby towns and villages, preaching and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom of God. He took his twelve disciples with him, along with some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases. Among them were Mary Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons; Joanna, the wife of Chuza, Herod’s business manager; Susanna; and many others who were contributing from their own resources to support Jesus and his disciples."

As the foundation’s executive director, Debora seeks investment opportunities that generate long-term impact and economic empowerment for marginalized people in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
