Becoming "all things to all people" | Constance Mendoza | Ep. 186
What does Paul mean when he says in 1 Cor. 9:19-23 he "became all things to all people" - is he a chameleon? Shape shifting to appeal to people? Seeking to be as liked as possible?

Regaining Biblical Clarity in a Secular Culture | Natasha Crain | Ep. 180
Welcome to Your Place in a Worldview Minority! It’s no longer “normal” to be a Christian in our culture. We are surrounded by secularism both outside and inside the church, but we don't have to be fooled: secularism is anything but neutral.  Listen in as I discuss with Natasha Crain how believers can reclaim a Biblical worldview and stand firm on the authority of God's word in a culture that is mounting its pressures of secular individualism every day.

Roman Catholicism vs. Christianity | Mike Gendron | Ep. 179
In this episode Haley interviews convert and missionary pastor Mike Gendron, who compares and contrasts the teachings of the Catholic church with the 66 books of the Bible. As a former Catholic himself, Mike’s apologetics and evangelism ministry, “Proclaiming the Gospel,” is a must-bookmark resource.  Mike is the author of two books, Preparing for Eternity and Contending for the Gospel, and has published 7 Gospel tracts and a set of Gospel Cards to reach those who are perishing. We cover the basic teachings of the Catechism of the Catholic church as it relates to many topics including: sin, salvation, communion/the eucharist, heaven, hell, works, righteousness, sacrifice and many more topics. It's important to not only understand our own faith, but also the theology of religions like Catholicism which uses a lot of the same terminology but different definitions. Mike Gendron explains this and more!

Rebelling Against Mediocre Motherhood | Abbie Halberstadt | Ep. 174
M Is Not for Mediocre The narrative around motherhood today can be a real downer. Instead of rallying to uplift each other or rejoicing in what God has done in their lives, moms often connect over memes about how “kids are the worst.” Mother-of-ten Abbie Halberstadt believes that Christ has so much more to offer you and your family than empty validation of first bumps for surviving another day that worldly culture brings to the the table.

The Over-Politicization of Christian Churches for Conservative Politics | Reagan Scott | Ep. 173
Talking today with Reagan Scott on how many Christian churches have become overly-politicized. This is due in large part to pastors on both sides of the political aisle partnering with political organizations and leveraging their platform/captive audience for political gain rather than preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.  My audience will be aware of this practice in liberal-leaning churches over the last couple years, but today Reagan and I focus on how more recently, we've seen this phenomenon in conservative Christian churches, due in some part thanks to organizations like Turning Point USA's new program "Turning Point Faith" which aims to go into temples, mosques and churches to get people to register to vote, start chapters within youth groups and 'activate their faith in the public square.' We discuss the danger of this ecumenical movement to sharing the true gospel of Jesus Christ.

BUT - for the Christian, we have another motivation for being and staying engaged politically - and it's not so our political party wins or stays in office.  Listen in as Rachel Reeves, wife, homeschool mom and founder of Here Are The Headlines discuss what political engagement for the Christian should look like.  Follow me on instagram HERE.

Breaking Free: How a Mother of 7 Escaped a Sexually Abusive Marriage | Stacy Atherton | Ep. 167
WARNING: This episode is not for young ears OR those who may be triggered by stories of sexual abuse.  This is the story of one woman who escaped a sexually abusive marriage to a porn-addicted husband.  This episode outlines her story as well as highlights the devastating effects porn consumption has on an individual and, eventually, their family.  Stacy is a survivor, fighter and advocate for women and children who have endured abusive relationships. She speaks to many aspects of this conversation that most of us don't realize: appropriate physical touch, where abusers most often come from, how porn changes a person's brain and, if unchecked and unhindered, will enable them to objectify anyone and anything as an object of sexual pleasure.  She encourages the church to RISE UP and offers many good suggestions for ways to educate and protect your family and children.  Fight The New Drug Covenant Eyes Follow me on instagram HERE and HERE.

The Problem of Biblical Illiteracy & What To Do About It | Dave Jenkins | Ep. 162
Many Christians rightly believe that they need to read the Bible but do not properly understand how to approach the Word or what its purpose is in their life. Understanding how to hear the Word, read the Word and study the Word is vital. But a recent LifeWay Research study found that the way Christians actually read their Bibles was much less frequent than one might think. Dave Jenkins and I are discussing why Biblical literacy is important and how to grow in the knowledge of God-- not just for knowledge's sake but so we grow in our love for Him.  Follow me on instagram HERE.

"Red-Letter Christianity": AKA Pitting Jesus Against His Own Word | Ep. 155
Have you heard things like: "go with Jesus" "Jesus' words are more authoritative than anyone else in the Bible" "Paul was a little preachy, go with Jesus on this one" ?? These are all cunning examples of Red-Letter Christianity - the belief that Jesus' words spoken during his earthly ministry "trump" all else in God's Word. This teaching and idea is getting more traction all the time amongst progressive Christians and is seeping in to churches and through teachers' words... we need to know what it is and why it's false. And we need to argue for the authority and supremacy of scripture - since it is all God-breathed, and ... surprise! Jesus and God ARE ONE.  Shownotes at kindledpodcast.com Sponsor: H.

Studying the Bible to Know God | Kelli Garms | Ep. 154
We know we're supposed to read our Bible. We know we're supposed to spend time in prayer. But that's hard. So we turn to devotionals, studies, books, podcasts, blogs and more - because it's easier. But the problem with this as our only diet of truth is - we don't know how to read God's very words in order to know Him. The Bible is God's WORD, but do we treat it as such? Do we approach it with an understanding that we can not just know the Bible when we read it - but we can know its author? Kelli Garms learned that lesson herself when God stripped everything else she "used" to try to know Him or feel safe, and now she helps other women learn how to dig into God's word *themselves* and learn how to mine not just for truth - but to know God Himself.  Shownotes at www.kindledpodcast.com Sponsor: Leeann Tenbrink with Guaranteed Foods - Get $100 of free food when you try their service!

School Choice: Funding Students instead of Systems | Corey DeAngelis | Ep. 153
After a challenging year for children's education, it's no surprise school choice is finally getting traction. Today Corey DeAngelis joins me to discuss why. Parents this past year have been sending their children to charter schools and homeschooling in hordes. Public schools are indoctrinating our children and receiving more and more funding, but teachers still have to pay for their own school supplies. Their unions are in the political pocketbook. Every parent should have the right to send their children to the best school for them,  and Corey DeAngelis is here to speak on how we can make this happen.

Morality by Popular Consensus | Natasha Crain | Ep. 150
It's no surprise that objective and absolute standards of morality were long since tossed to the wayside in favor of individual, subjective moral "truth." Recently, though, that individualized "personal ethic" has converted into more of a "morality by popular consensus" as product after book after person after brand gets harassed, cancelled, and condemned as "unfit" for society -- or worse. Natasha Crain and I discuss the how this change has occurred and she offers listeners encouragement for weathering the cultural hurricane we are in as well as preparing your kids for whatever is next.  Sponsor: Leeann Tenbrink with Guaranteed Foods: Get a WEEK OF FREE FOOD when you try their budget and family-friendly food delivery service!

This episode is something you might not have heard before - the facts. What are the facts of the Enneagram's history? Is it beneficial for Christians in any way? Why or why not? What do we stand to lose or gain by engaging with this tool? Is it truly neutral?  I discuss all this with Ex-Professional Astrologer and New Ager Marcia Montenegro in today's episode.  I challenge you, whether for or against, to listen to this episode in a spirit of openness, with James 1:5 in mind: "If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him."

Belonging | Bethany Barendregt | Ep. 138
For the world, belonging is turned upside down from the way God designed it. The belonging movement, led by voices like Brene Brown and Glennon Doyle Melton, tells us true belonging is found in unconditional self-acceptance.  In many ways, this movement isn't much different than Satan's offer in the garden - "Did God really say?" Culture offers us something it doesn't have authority to give - and that's what we explore in this episode.  Sponsor: Kindled Firestarters Join to get a BONUS episode every Friday for $10/month!

SPECIAL EPISODE: Why Christians Must Demand Justice in Election Crisis
Join us for this conversation with Dr. Jeff Myers of Summit Ministries on why Christians must demand justice in this election crisis.   From Dr. Myers' article, "As the election crisis drags on and the news is filled with widespread reports of voting irregularities and fraud, confusion and chaos reign. America needs help, and yet people of faith are almost entirely asleep at the wheel. Many feel they did enough by voting. I’ve seen countless people post the meme “God is in control” on their social media pages as if to say, 'I did my part. Whatever happens next is God’s business.' This is bad citizenship and even worse theology." Dr. Myers explains why. To watch this video interview on Youtube, click here.

LIFE | Danielle D'Souza Gill | Ep. 135
Abortion is the great, unexamined issue of our time. When we look at the controversies swirling in America, we see that underneath them lurks this issue of abortion, which is the driving force of what is going on, even when it is not mentioned. Danielle and I unpack some of this critical and crucial conversation. We discuss why the conversation on abortion is changing, how information and science is on our side, and dive into a discussion of how many "pro-life" Christians are leaving the traditionally pro-life Republican party to vote Democrat for a number of reasons.  The sponsor is Prepdish.

With all the recent changes in how churches are doing service, offering livestreams, streaming podcasts, is there still value in meeting in person with the body of Christ?  The answer is a resounding YES from Pastor Joel Webbon of Right Response Ministries.  In this episode he provides an apologetic for why the gathering of the saints as the body of Christ (the CHURCH) is essential.  Episode Sponsor: H.

Identity | Natalie Gaines | Ep. 130
Who are we really and who do we believe ourselves to be? Do we need to go "find ourselves" or "recover our lost self" or "uncover our core self" or travel "the road back to you?" There are SO MANY messages coming at us left and right, front and back, every day. How do you know who you are and if you're really even yourself? It's exhausting to consider, isn't it?  These are the questions we are examining today from both a biblical and secular worldview. Our identity is central and foundational to how we live. It's also something God has a lot to say about - especially after He makes us new creations and we are made alive in Christ.  Natalie Gaines and I (@stopandconsider) discuss and it's so rich and full of encouragement.  Join Kindled's Patreon Community to get a BONUS episode each week!  Episode Sponsor: H.

Justice | Samuel Sey | Ep. 129
Samuel Sey and I discuss justice and examine it from both a Biblical and secular worldview. A few of the topics we discuss:  What are the justice issues we are seeing in the world today? What is a biblical definition of justice?  How does the world define justice?  Is disparity evidence of injustice? What does God say about it in the Bible and is it relevant to the issues we're experiencing today? This episode is amazingly practical and truth-filled.

Law & Gospel | Krista Bontrager | Ep. 128
What is the law according to scripture? And what does the Gospel have to do with it? Everything, it turns out.  Theologian Krista Bontrager of "All the Things" Podcast and I discuss how the Bible explains our relationship to the law and God's provision in Christ. We also compare and contrast this perspective with how the world views law and its limitations to their freedoms and happiness.  This episode is SO HELPFUL in understanding much of the language and discussion around law, justice and other hot topics being discussed in the church and culture.  Sponsor: Prepdish - sign up for our 2 week free trial and make mealtime stress-free and healthy!

The Purpose of Motherhood | September McCarthy | Ep. 125
Motherhood is full and glorious - but also filled with trials and suffering. If we don't understand the purpose of our motherhood, we will get lost in everyday difficulties and no way to reclaim perspective.  That's what I discuss today with September McCarthy, mother of 10 and homeschool mama. She has a unique perspective of generational motherhood with children spanning from age 28 to 8 years old. She has grandchildren and children of her own still in her home, affording her the perspective of a multi-generational mother and seeing how unique and beautiful our purpose is in God's kingdom. She shares so much wisdom and encouragement for those of us in the trenches. No matter what season of motherhood you are in, you will be encouraged by her testimony of God's grace in her nearly 30 years of being a mother.  Shownotes at kindledpodcast.com Sponsor: Jiobit | TRACKTOSCHOOL to get $15 off your tracker.

A Biblical Look at Racism, Justice & Culture | Monique Duson | Ep. 121
The murder of George Floyd on May 25 sent the United States into a nationwide cultural discussion on racism and justice.  There are many voices offering many solutions to the problems that ail society. But how do we look at this issue as Christians? What answer does the Bible have for the sin and evil we see in society in both individuals and our systems of government?  How do we respond as Christians to the call of the world to "divest of our whiteness" and embrace the narrative offered by Critical Race Theory that so many (including many Christians) are letting guide the discussion? This is what Monique and I are discussing today. Monique is the founder of the Center for Biblical Unity and a Racial Unity Advocate. Shownotes available at www.kindldedpodcast.com Sponsor: H.

Pornography: The Greatest Threat to the Cause of Christ | Rosie Makinney | Ep. 120
Pornography is the most destructive force we are facing today - and by and large? We AREN'T TALKING ABOUT IT. (Excuse me for yelling, this is kind of a big deal.)  Hearts are being darkened by evil, brains are being rewired by overstimulation and marriages are being destroyed. Here's some stats for you: 79% of Christian men who attend evangelical church regularly use porn. 55% of Christian men look at it monthly and 1 in 10 look at it daily. But it's NOT JUST MEN - the fastest growing user group is Women. The biggest user group is 12-17 year olds. 1 out of 10 porn users is under the age of 10.  BUT hold on --  there is hope, healing and restoration. There is forgiveness through Christ and we can walk in the light, free of shame and deception. Free of slavery to this evil that so easily entangled.   We have to talk about this, Church.  Listen to my conversation with Rosie Makinney of Fight For Love Ministries  Sponsor: H. Williams Creative

How Jesus Redeems the Power of Touch | Lore Wilbert | Ep. 119
Whether it’s fearful side hugs on one side or sexual abuse on the other, both the culture and the church aren’t doing very well with touch. Singles are staying single longer, dating is wrought with angst over purity, and marriages struggle to not interpret all forms of touch as sexual. Even the Bible seems to have endless rules about not touching things. There is simply no place where touch doesn’t seem threatened or threatening.  But a curious thing happens when Jesus comes into His ministry: He touches. Jesus touches the sick and the outcast, the bleeding and the unclean.  Join me and Lore Wilbert as we discuss on today's episode.  Sponsor: Prepdish - Start your 14-day FREE TRIAL today!  Shownotes at www.kindledpodcast.com

The 10 Commandments of Progressive Christianity | Dr. Michael Kruger | Ep. 117
These 10 Commandments are in effect - a new Ten Commandments. What’s striking is that they are far less about God revealing his desires and far more about man expressing his own—less Moses, more Oprah. Yet each of these commandments is partially true. Indeed, that is what makes this list, and progressive Christianity as a whole, so challenging. Half-truths can sound quite appealing until you recognize their foundations and implications.  Join Dr. Kruger and I as we discuss.

Is self-love really loving?  It's a question worth asking. And my guest Brooke Tabor and I go there in today's episode.  Our cultural moment is nothing short of consumed with this concept of loving yourself better. Self-love is the best love. Love yourself first to love others. And while we are sure the intention behind the phrase often means well, for Christians, it profoundly misses the mark of the kind of love scripture both promises us AND calls us to exhibit.  Join us as we discuss!  Shownotes at kindledpodcast.com Sponsor: H.

The New Age & The Enneagram | Marcia Montenegro | Ep. 112
Today I'm airing the second part of my conversation with Marcia Montenegro. We're diving headfirst into the New Age and tackling some big topics like naturopathy, mindfulness, the enneagram.  Marcia explains the origins of these ideas, concepts and the enneagram itself, which may surprise you. To be fair, I have long loved the enneagram and how it felt like it explained me so accurately, helped me understand more about myself and others, but as I've learned more about its origins, I've taken a more critical approach to it. But Marcia's biggest beef isn't that you identify as a "three" or an "achiever" but that the enneagram is teaching people to value experience over truth, a foundational teaching of the new age. While I think there's plenty of room for believers to disagree on whether the enneagram can be "redeemed" (which tends to be the point of argumentation), it's important for us to take a look at the origins of what we engage with so we can rightly understand how we interact with them today.  Show notes at kindledpodcast.com

Truth & Grace in Relationships | Sarah Guild | Ep. 109
The cultural moment we are in tells us grace and truth do not exist together. The narrative looks something like - grace means wholesale acceptance of all that someone chooses to do and the rejection of absolute truth - ie: they can do NO wrong. On the flip side, if you have the truth, you must preach it and take no prisoners. But an examination of scripture and God's heart for his children shows that is not how we are to understand these two. They are inextricably linked and meant to be applied together, not separately, in the life of believers.  Sarah and I discuss how a right understanding of grace and truth frees us to engage honestly and lovingly, even - and perhaps especially - in challenging relationships.  Sponsor: Prepdish Shownotes at www.Kindledpodcast.com

Recovering the Lost Art of Discernment | Hannah Anderson | Ep. 108
It's a wild time to be alive. We have access to more ideas, more content, more leaders, more voices, more information than anyone in history has ever had access to. And that means that we’re going to have to have wisdom to know what to listen to, which direction to go, what to take in, what to leave behind, how to discern what is really influencing us when we post, how to just clarify our own motives and how to be led by the Holy Spirit and not just be swept along by this torrent of information.  That means we need to have discernment. But discernment is more than simply avoiding bad things; discernment actually frees you to navigate the world with confidence and joy by teaching you how to recognize and choose good things. When you learn discernment and develop a taste for all that’s good, you will encounter God in remarkable new ways. Join me and Hannah for this fascinating conversation.

Seeking Approval | Donna Harris | Ep. 107
Approval is something we all long for. We long to be found as enough, as acceptable, as good. In fact, it's not whether we will seek approval or not but where we will seek it. When we look for it in the wrong place, the approval we find will never satiate our desire for acceptance. But when we realize nd truly believe that our drive to find approval is meant to be met and satisfied in the work of Jesus Christ on the cross, our endless search for the approval of man can end. We can see that Jesus fulfills every desire we have for approval by doing what we were powerless to do.  Donna and I talk through some of the ways we wrongly seek approval and how we see in scripture that God is the only One who can offer sound and true approval of us.  Shownotes at www.KindledPodcast.com

Reclaiming Real Friendship in a Culture of Confusion | Kelly Needham | Ep. 106
As Christians, we know friendship matters. Go to any Christian book store and you’ll find myriads of books on the importance of community. But while most people are convinced of their need for Christian friendships, they are often confused about the problems and disappointment they experience. What’s responsible for this confusion? For too many people, their friendships are very worldly. Following Jesus may have changed the activities of friendship, but the DNA of how and why they practice friendship remains untouched. These relationships may look good, but underneath, they’re merely friend-ish. In this conversation Kelly and I discuss what true biblical friendship really looks like and how we can be better friends to one another.  Shownotes: www.KindledPodcast.com Sponsor: H.

Nothing Went as Planned, Yet She Thrives | Alaina Mayes | Ep. 104
You're going to love my friend Alaina.  She is smart, beautiful and a great mother of three. But more than all that, she is resilient because she is anchored in a God who has and is redeeming her and her story.  Most might have been tempted to title this episode by the things that the world might say marks and even scars Alaina's life - infertility, infidelity, divorce, single mother of three, working mom. But when you place your identity in a source outside yourself and your circumstances, those things lose their power to make you anything - for better or worse. These things that have happened to her have not defined her. They have not made her who she is, but rather have been the catalyst for her to lean harder into her savior. And her attitude is not just a show - it's a choice she's made. Her commitment to her girls is not an obligation, it's the delight of her life. Her resilience is not just a show for Instagram, it's something she is modeling in her real life.  Nothing went as planned, yet she thrives.    Shownotes available at www.kindledpodcast.com

EDUCATION MINI-SERIES: Introduction | Haley Williams | Ep. 97
Welcome to the Education Mini-Series!  In this introduction, Haley gives a preface to this 3-part mini-series in which you'll hear from 6 women who, along with their husbands, have all chosen different routes for educating their kids. You'll hear from two who chose public school, two who chose homeschooling and two who chose private school. As believers in Jesus, we have the great privilege and responsibility of teaching our kids about Jesus and praying God uses our instruction to open the eyes of their heart unto salvation. As for academic education, I believe we have a number of faithful options when it comes to how our children are educated. There are any number of models and methods and many, many different ways people have done it over the years. But for the sake of brevity, we're broadly exploring the big three - public, private and homeschool.  The point of these interviews is not to offer a prescription for your situation or tell you WHAT to think but rather help you with HOW to think about this important decision. It's what I have wanted as my own husband and I have had these conversations. To hear some real, boots-on-the-ground experiences, questions and answers and encouragement to do the best with what we have and know today, trusting our great God to bring the harvest as only He can.  I pray it blesses everyone who listens, helping you to put this decision in perspective and put your hope in Jesus alone.

Minimal-ish: Minimalism for Regular People | Desirae Endres | Ep. 87

But have you considered that might be because you have the wrong definition? Lacey Rabalais and I discuss holy homemaking in today's episode.

After all, he's had a front row seat to my journey the last 7 years, so I think he knows a thing or two what it's like!  These episodes are my most favorite to record, because it's just us hanging out, chatting, while on recording, which seems to always make for some of the most hilarious conversations.

Taking Jesus Seriously and Not Much Else | Caroline Evans | Ep. 33
Today’s guest says there are two things that make her smack her own face in frustration: 1. when we buy into the lie that spiritual things must be serious, and 2. when we don’t take our faith seriously. I was delighted to have a conversation with Caroline that spanned so much. From how we think and talk about our bodies to discipleship. She is real and I am constantly inspired by her honest and uplifting writing. I hope this conversation is the equivalent for you!

Whose Kingdom are you building? | Haley Williams | Ep. 32
Do you ever get TOTALLY SCHOOLED by the Holy Spirit? Like, you ask God for wisdom, and He delivers and just spanks you with insight. Ouch, Lord. I get it.  This was God's kindness to give my thick skull the insight I needed on some questions I've been asking. I hope you like preaching, because this episode ventures in soapbox. But it ain't my soap box. This, friend, is about the gospel. And whose kingdom you're building.
