Your Hope-Filled Perspective Podcast
Do you ever struggle with comparison? Do you look at all the moms and their kids out there and think maybe you just don’t measure up? Do you ever wonder if you’re fulfilling God’s purpose for your life? In this episode, Jenny Dean Schmidt of Channel Mom and I talk about the fact that you are already amazing. Today’s episode is filled with words of encouragement for mothers.
On this week’s podcast, we’re celebrating the 3rd anniversary of Your Hope-Filled Perspective where we offer you a Biblically-based Hope-Filled Perspective. This week, we’re sharing the 6 episodes that you downloaded the most over the past year. Overall, the themes cover knowing who we are in Christ and paying attention to our mindset. Featured guests are Kris Reece, Scott Bengtson, Erica Wiggenhorn, Tina Yeager, Amy Joob, and Marcia Ramsland.
Lisa Appelo and I talk about how to hang onto threadbare hope when our circumstances are too hard to handle. When Lisa’s husband died suddenly, she was left alone to walk herself and her seven children through grief and loss. She shares about hope in the midst of difficulties.
Jenn Hand and I talk about how to move past fear and say yes to God, what it looks like to say yes to God, how fears can stop you, and how saying yes enables us to walk in faith into all God has for us to do.
Jennifer Dukes Lee and I talk about the advantages of slowing down to live life and how the most important things in life take the longest to grow. If you’re ready to make a break from fast paced living and learn how to adopt a growing slow lifestyle, you won’t want to miss this episode.
My friend, Donna Fagerstrom, and I talk about how to deal with grief. Donna shares the truths she learned during her own grief journey and in walking with others through the grieving process. There are so many different ways we have experienced grief, loss, and mourning over the past couple of years. We need to give ourselves permission to grieve. We can maintain our hope, because Jesus is our hope, and become an overcomer through the tough times.
In this episode, we’re celebrating my birthday! I thought it would be the perfect opportunity for us to get to know each other better. So, I’m sharing a personal peek into some of my favorite things. Little things that make life more pleasant. And, some of the things that get me through the hardest of times.
We all go through difficult times that snatch our very breath, and steal our laughter. Rhonda Stoppe and I talk about how God views joy and how to laugh out loud when life is hard. Rhonda (the “No Regrets Woman”) has experienced her share of heartache. She shares what she learned about the value of laughter even when life is hard.
I talk with BJ Garrett about recovering from trauma from sexual abuse and mistakes in the past. She shares that no matter what you’ve done or what has been done to you, healing is available in Jesus Christ. Love changes everything.
Lyli Dunbar and I talk about Persevering in Prayer for Difficult Relationships. We all have those prickly, difficult people in our lives that challenge us. Lyli and I talk about three types of difficult people and how we can set boundaries with and pray for the difficult people in our lives.
