Join us for conversations we all wish we had about Jesus. Unedited. Real. Hope-filled. We don’t pretend to be perfect or know all the answers. We simply love Jesus and want to talk about life with Him.
Here at WWLJ, we talk about the things that matter with women from every sphere and background.
Our hope? As we listen and learn from other women, we would come away MORE secure that our lives aren’t supposed to look exactly like anyone else’s. Here we celebrate the uniqueness of each woman.
After all, God is far too creative to tell the same story twice.
Never had friendship felt so doable and freeing. This episode is SPECIAL. I adore these women and the chance to sit down with them- even if over zoom- was water for my soul. Lean in to the extraordinary story God has given the two of them, bask in their wisdom and walk away believing God more thanks to their contagious faith.

This one is special. Make room for yourself to sip this episode slowly like the best cup of coffee or tea. Lauren is the perfect guest to usher us in to God’s presence and frame us Biblically it what it looks like to hear from God. Enjoy it!

What do we do with the parts of our faith (or ourselves) that don’t feel the same as everyone else’s? Is it the loving thing to be called out on our crap? Is the church doing a good job with singles?

Do you have a dream you want to go for but no idea where to start? Have you felt a stirring to enter in to conversations of race but don’t know how? This episode is for you, girl. I first met Dani when I awkwardly asked if I could sit at her table and now she boldly and graciously asks the rest of us to pull up a seat to the table of race. Dani is an artist, activist, entrepreneur and a well of practical wisdom. She loves Jesus and has made me love Him more because of the ways she radiates Him.

What we want to ask the wise people in our lives: What does confession look like? Can you explain prophesy? How do we gain freedom in Jesus? How do emotions play into our journey with Him? What about daily spiritual disciplines? Kristin and Lindsey cover these and more in Episode 3!
Kristin & Katie cover it all- like only sisters can do! Everything from what’s helpful and not in seasons of singleness, praying the things that feel too vulnerable to pray, Keds, and the difference between being “neat” and “clean.” Can’t wait for y’all to join us.
Picture pulling up a chair to our dining room table. We’ve finished a rowdy meal with the small ones asking, laughing, interrupting... but after the kids have gone to bed and we come back for a drink and some dessert... THIS is what we would talk about. So glad you’re here with us. And please pass the dark chocolate.
