Scripture

Romans 8:28

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:38-39

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Hebrews 4:12

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

Isaiah 41:10

So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Psalm 23:4

Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

Psalm 91:4-6

He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.

Isaiah 55:11

so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

Feathers Season 2 Episode 13 with Joy McMillan

FeathersiTunes2-300

In this episode, I finish my chat with Joy McMillan.

Joy is a speaker, writer, graphic designer, mentor & coach. She’s the founder of the We ROAR Project and the author of XES (Why Church Girls Tend To Get It Backwards…And How To Get It Right).
Wife to her handsome state trooper hubby and momma to their two little loin-fruit, they have found their home in the great mitten state.

JoyMcMillanpost

Joy shares how she grew up in a Christian home, yet had no concept of grace. Sexual perversion drove her into hiding where shame held her hostage for several years. After 7 years of secrets, just 2 months before her wedding, God asked Joy if she trusted Him with her heart – and her gaping wounds – and she stepped out of hiding.

 Scripture

One who is full loathes honey from the comb,
    but to the hungry even what is bitter tastes sweet. Proverbs 27:7

“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
    I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters,
    I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
    they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
    you will not be burned;
    the flames will not set you ablaze. Isaiah 43:1-2

Feathers Season 2 Episode 12 with Elise Hurd PART II [Podcast]

FeathersiTunes2-300

In this episode, I finish my chat with Elise Hurd.

As a stay at home mom of four exuberant young daughters, Elise’s life is full of words! Needs! Feelings! Thoughts! Meals! Messes! Noise! And *lots* of seeking Jesus to stay sane through it all.

Elise and her husband, Jason, are also live-in full-time caretakers for Jason’s Dad, who has advanced Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Elise is the Children’s ministry director at her home church, part-time web developer, and the artist and shop owner of her family’s online store, Little Lunch Maker. She recently realized that the sickness she’s been feeling is because a new little one is the way, arriving sometime in June next year!

You can learn more about Elise’s journey growing in Christ and her family from her personal blog, The Giving Place.
