Feathers Season 5 Episode 15 with Cindy Bultema: Overcoming Addiction, Experiencing Grief, and Walking Free

FeathersiTunes2-300

In this episode, I interview Cindy Bultema.

Cindy was once a lonely, rejected, single mom addicted to cocaine. She lived an empty, self-defeating, rebellious lifestyle until the amazing day Jesus set her free! She is now a married mother of 4 and this summer marked her 20th anniversary of being cocaine-free.

Cindy is a speaker, Bible study teacher, and author. Her most recent Bible study is Live Full Walk Free, a journey through 1 Corinthians, released this month at Thomas Nelson. In this study, Cindy equips women to live a set-apart life for Christ in our sin-soaked world.

Cindy Bultema shares her struggles through addiction and grief and how she has found freedom and grace in Jesus Christ.

Quotes

The only reason you see the shadow is because you’ve turned away from the light.

Process the light of the truth and change the way you’re thinking by replacing my thoughts with His thoughts and let His thoughts shape our actions.

When I walked in the truth, my feelings would begin to align over time.

We find two most powerful words in community: “Me too.”

Our girlfriends can be the one that says don’t be so hard on yourself.

Social media can give me a surfacey sense of community. It’s kind of like rice cakes – it doesn’t nourish my heart.
