Is a Judgmental Attitude Burning Out Your Christian Light?
Did you know that according to a recent poll by the Episcopal Church, entitled Jesus in America, that 54% of those 3119 adults polled with no religious affiliation found Christians judgmental, 55% said we are hypocrites and 50% said we were self righteous? Wow! As Christians we should find this disheartening. In this episode I dive deep into why judgment is squashing our Christian light and stopping us from effectively carrying out the message of Jesus.

Breaking Bread Without Losing Your Head! Diving Into the Details of the Thanksgiving Dinner Table
Hospitality is not just about a pretty table, it's about how you position your heart to serve others and to make them feel comfortable. If you are at ease your guests will be too. We always hear it's not about being perfect it's about being present and I 100% agree. The presentation doesn't matter if your guests feel uncomfortable. Often we get caught up in the presentation because we try to give our guests the best experience we can give them, but the best experience starts with a relaxed hostess. Preparation and pre-decision help you be present and not worry about those details that drive us crazy. Today I will discuss how to take Thanksgiving inventory so that you do that pre-decision work and get prepared so you can be present! In this episode I'll talk about taking inventory of the following: Tables, chairs, and serving tables The number of plates (main course, dessert, and any appetizers) you need for the number of guests you are hosting. The number of glasses, coffee cups, or wine glasses Silverware Napkins whether cloth or paper Serving Dishes & Utensils Tablecloths Of course, I won't leave you high and dry without some resources to make taking inventory easier! Go to my website and get 4 downloads! 2 Thanksgiving To-do Lists with different designs Thanksgiving Inventory List- One is blank that you can fill in, and the other list I have filled in some of the categories for you, to make it super simple.

Refresh, Replenish and Restore Through Rest in Jesus!
Matthew 11:28 “Come to me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take up my yoke and learn from me, because I am lowly and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." Happy New Year Friends! In the first podcast episode of 2022, I encourage you to create the most important and formative habit you can ever form... that is finding rest in Jesus! So before you go full steam ahead on those big goals you're pursuing, make sure that you are taking time to refresh, replenish and restore through Rest in Jesus who is the center of everything we do or plan to do. We were not created to go, go, go! In fact the very first book of the Bible, Genesis 2:2 says, "By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work." If God the Creator and Author of Life took time to rest, shouldn't you? What's wonderful about resting in Jesus is that he renews our strength, refreshes our faith, and restores our spirit. Christ never meant for your to carry your burdens alone, and in Mathew 11:28 he gives us an invitation to come to find rest in him. Listen in as I dive into why we should find rest in Jesus and how it keeps us in alignment with our identity in Christ; how the Lord replenishes our spiritual tank and the ways he restores and cleanses us so we stay in relationship with him. You will see how much the scriptures support us finding rest in Jesus and what happens to us when we make the choice to take time to be in his presence. I also give 7 Practical Ways for You to Find Rest in Jesus in your day-to-day life. You can download the 7 Ways to Rest in Jesus along with Tips to Unplug from the Distractions and Plug into God by downloading the resources below. There are also scripture cards for you to download too! Just click on the links below. I hope you enjoy this first episode! Subscribe to the Website for Updates and the Newsletter!

A Reflection on Psalm 36:4...Are You Committed To God’s Course for Your Life?
Being committed to a course means that you’re dedicated to a progression that leads to a specific point. As a follower of Christ it’s important to reflect on if you’re dedicated to a sinful course that leads to spiritual depletion or a course that leads to abundance and peace.

Part 4: The Mother of Invisible Fences Holding You Back ...Fear!
Fear is the mother of all invisible fences! It keeps us confined, robs us of opportunities and makes sure our talents and gifts stay tucked away. In this last of the 4 part series on breaking down the invisible fences holding you back, I tackle fear from a spiritual and practical perspective, giving you tips on how to topple this fence and live a life that is authentic and on purpose! In this episode I dive into my own personal experience with fear, what scripture says about fear and how to handle it along with practical tips such as: -Examining and reflecting on the core question...why are you afraid? -Evaluate the cost/benefit of fear -How to choose freedom over fear -Taking inventory of your fear by looking at triggers, and how they manifest (for ex. Does fear manifest through one of the other invisible fences such as limiting beliefs, holding onto the past or being complacent in a narrative that doesn’t reflect the story you want to live) You are more than a conqueror! Don’t allow fear to overcome your faith! Faith is believing what you can’t see and having trust in the Lord’s perfect plan and fear is the exact opposite! Fear is being afraid of what you can’t see, and not trusting in the sovereignty of God to pursue His plan. When fear is put in its proper context it protects us from danger and keeps us safe when it dominates us it stops protecting and instead prevents us from living authentically. Check out the first 3 parts if you missed them! As always please take a moment to rate the podcast over at iTunes!

Lot's Wife...Stop Looking Back and Look Forward to God's Amazing Blessings!
Recently, I presented a lesson on Lot's Wife in my Ladies Bible Study and I could not believe how much meat was in my study! This was perhaps one of my favorite lessons. Lot's Wife doesn't even have a name in the scriptures, but her story, has many lessons it in it for us today. I found that we are not so different than Lot's Wife. How often do we look back, trying to hold onto a past situation, relationship, habit, or lifestyle that doesn't fit who we are in Christ. When we refuse to look forward we are living in disobedience and we become immobilized unable to receive blessings or be a blessing! Take a listen to my lesson on Lot's Wife and if you want to watch it with the slides it is posted on Watch My Bible Lesson on Lot's Wife and the Danger of Disobedience! (faithcoffeeandakid.com). I hope you are as blessed by this lesson as I was preparing it!
