E015 - For the Moms is Back (and it's Gonna be GOOD!)
In speaking with countless new Moms over the years, it became quite obvious that absolutely nothing can prepare you for Motherhood except Motherhood itself! There are so many thoughts and feelings that come along on this ride and oftentimes women feel so ashamed to say, “I need help, I don’t know what I am doing!”. For the Moms is an annual written blog series which aims to ignite and connect Godly Women in various stages of Motherhood toward the revelation of their Divinely given assignment and their impact as the gatekeepers of the home. Since its inception in 2020, For the Moms has received over 2,500 views in almost 30 countries! In 2022, my goal is to increase those numbers and our impact. At the heart of For the Moms is the heart to reach this profound group whose jobs are often thankless and endless. A group whose role is critical to the very nations we inhabit as we are raising the next generation. A group who holds such profound weight in the lives of their families and in the sight of God; Mothers. There is purpose untold in motherhood. It is an assignment to be both understood and accepted. And what is paramount, is that as Daughters of the King, we come into alignment with His vision and purpose in our Mothering. For the Moms is such a movement. One whose purpose and mission is to elevate Christ and conceptualize Godly character in Motherhood – and to reach down and pull up those Mothers who are just starting, who are understandably worn, or who have somehow lost their way. Further, For the Moms is a movement that is calling to attention the warriors within us for the times in which we live. We will aim to unravel the mistakes and cycles of generations past. We will wage war for our families. And, we will diligently seek the Lord’s face concerning His will for our children and who we are becoming through our Motherhood. So, if you’re a new mom, or a seasoned one – this is for you! If you’ve ever been in question, or weary, or alone, or afraid – this is for you! If you’re a woman – this is for you! If you know the goodness of God – this is for you! If you have a woman that you love who is a mom or hopes to become one – this is for you! If you are humbled by the Treasure of Christ who lives in you and makes everything you do possible – then this is for YOU! *Stay tuned to the end for a sweet message from the Smith Girls!!!

E014 - When Trauma Becomes Our Trip Up - Pt. 2
Contrary to common belief, time doesn’t necessarily heal all wounds. Some healing will require a decision to be made. Some healing requires intentional ongoing maintenance, one step at a time. In the conclusion of this 2-part series, Hannah discusses making the critical decision to heal. We can’t control whether we experience trauma, but we can make a decision to heal following that trauma. We gaze again at the woman with the issue of blood. She had had enough, and she knew the time for her to get healed had come because the Healer (Jesus) was within reach. She got into the crowd in her condition, intending to touch Jesus’ cloak, and when she did, she got healed. It is also evident that how we view trauma is dependent on how we view God. Consider everything that Job went through; he lost his children, his finances, and his personal health. Job had all the reasons to curse God, but he never did it. He chose to believe that God would heal and restore him, and that God’s sovereignty did not change. Hannah shares practical steps that we can take in our journey toward healing, including the first steps which is understanding and accepting that Jesus is the true Healer. Listen to this episode as we dig deeper into healing, restoration, and not idolizing trauma. Key Talking Points of the Episode: [02:16] Seeing past the smoke [05:06] Emotional healing and restoration of God’s way [07:17] The woman with the issue of blood [08:47] The essence of counseling [12:32] Trauma that seeks to exalt itself against the knowledge of Christ is where we find our downfall [14:20] How you view trauma is largely dependent upon how you view God. Do you have a low or high view of God? [16:45] Allowing Jesus - not your trauma - to be king [20:00] Why do we need not to idolize our trauma [22:00] Dwelling in the place of trauma hinders emotional and spiritual sobriety [26:00] Seeking safety through Godly counsel. [30:30] Stewing and chewing on Isaiah 55: "The Free Offer of Mercy.” Quotes from the Episode: “Some of us may find that we become the toxic person after we become wounded, and that woundedness then becomes infection, and then that infection then becomes bitterness.” “Healing is a decision. It’s not an easy decision. It’s not an overnight decision, and it doesn’t happen all in an instance.” “If you are a believer, and you’re looking to stay on the path of holiness and righteousness, you have to be very cautious of who you’re taking counsel from.” “The enemy uses trauma to strip us, weaken us, and abort our purpose and mission. God uses this trauma to strengthen, mature, build and discipline us. When we hold his hands through the turbulence of life. We are refined. We become resolute and our fate.” “How you view trauma depends on how you view God.” “You need to transform areas of weakness in your life into strength.” Scriptures mentioned in the episode: · Proverbs 11:14 · 2 Corinthians 10:5 · Isaiah 55 · Psalm 103:14 · 2 Corinthians 1:3 · 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 · 2 Corinthians 4:16 Connect with Me!

013 - When Trauma Becomes Our Trip Up
Episode 013 is all about the other dark side of trauma. What happens when trauma becomes our trip up? Hannah talks about the responsibility we hold in our healing journey after we have faced trauma. Negating this responsibility puts us at risk of idolizing our trauma and perpetually dwelling in it and tripping over it. Just one touch from Jesus healed the woman with the issue of blood. It was her faith despite her past that made her whole. This same healing is available to us, should we reach for it. It won’t be easy, but with God, ALL things are possible. It is God’s grace in the wilderness that will carry us. Don’t miss out on part 1 of this 2-part series! In this episode: The lies of trauma The enemy's lies that trap us in trauma God’s truth that crushes those lies Identifying how we graduate from the pain to perpetually abiding in the pit of trauma, and hence, that trauma becoming our trip up. The dangers of paralysis by analysis Becoming toxic and blame shifting And more! Quotes: “Life does not end and life does not have to end because of trauma.” “Just one touch. One word. From God almighty will heal. One touch will erase the past. There is grace in the wilderness.” “Trauma becomes our trip up when and only when it becomes an IDOL.” “We overcome the ramifications of trauma because of the grace of God.” References Mentioned: Episode 011 (December 2021) Related Blog Post:  When Trauma becomes your Trip Up Scriptures: Matthew 19:26 Mark 5:24-34 Psalm 27:14 2 Corinthians 12:7-10 Isaiah 61:3 Psalm 103:14 Psalm 30:5 Connect with me!

E011 - The Knocking at the Door
We cap off with the final podcast recording of 2021. Today in episode 011 - The Knocking at the Door - Hannah takes listeners on a deep look within as we check our mindsets and heart-sets in preparation for 2022. We reflect on many Believers' struggle with the issue of compromise; a struggle that can rob us of holiness and can lead us to continuous people-pleasing and fear of man. Hannah shares of her own recent battle with compromise in a relationship, and how she had to choose to shut the door with love in order to guard her heart from the enemy’s compounding lies. In this episode: Identifying areas and relationships in our lives that tempt or cause us to compromise, including identifying people who are peace makers, peace fakers, and peace breakers. Making the choice to shut the door with love and what that actually means. Understanding and responding to the most important knocking at the door as revealed in Revelation 3. Maturing in our spiritual walk for this new year and evaluating our hearts position according to Jesus’ message to the churches in Revelation 3. The urgency in picking up the assignments that God has for us in 2022. Answering the call to salvation. Reflective Questions In what ways am I compromising? What am I choosing to overlook and why? Is this relationship or connection bringing me further to God or further away? If I am stuck in a trend of pleasing people, what is driving this need? Fear? Acceptance? Approval? Companionship? Relevance? Quotes: “The Lord wants us to grow. He wants us to go from spiritual milk to spiritual food.” “Ask, ‘What are those things that are causing me to compromise? What are those things that are knocking at the door of my heart?’” “At times, we do have to ‘lock the door’, in order to maintain a standard of holiness and righteousness. Those are the two things that the enemy tries to steal from us - holiness and righteousness - so he will tempt us to compromise.” "Without that 'love' piece, our hearts and our minds become a breeding ground for seeds of resentment, anger and pride, and bitterness and pain; I have lived that.” Sources: Amazon.com: A Woman's Guide to Spiritual Warfare: How to Protect Your Home, Family and Friends from Spiritual Darkness (Audible Audio Edition): Quin Sherrer, Ruthanne Garlock, Pam Ward, christianaudio.com: Audible Books & Originals How to Guard your Heart: 13 Proven Ways-thepraywarrior 22 Important Bible Verses About Fear Of Man (biblereasons.com) Scripture References: Proverbs 29:25 Galatians 1:10 Isaiah 2:22 John 7:24 Music:  Tony Anderson - Colorado Nights

E010 - Passion, Power, & Caring (Warning, this Message isn’t for the Faint of Heart)
Be prepared to get a little uncomfortable. There is a time for everything. Today, gentle reminders and encouragement give way to an introspective and sharp message that stirs both Hannah and her listeners to reflect on the genuine posture of their hearts toward the things of God. This strong word and reflection touches on truly caring about the kingdom, the dangers of manufactured purpose, repentance, faulty self-helplessness, and the haughtiness we are all so guilty of. Hannah boldly challenges us to deeply ponder our motives and to think about how our claims of faith line up with our willingness to even be interrupted by God. This message certainly isn’t for the faint of heart. You won’t want to miss it. In this Episode: Agonizing Prayer Are you willing to be interrupted by God? The heart of passion, power, and caring as reflected in the life of Elijah How our ignorance leads to unrest How our tendency to lead and direct can attempt to usurp God’s plan in our lives Exposing the notion that we are helpless and incapable of living a righteous life How to turn from the things that are separating you from God and holy living The dead end in purpose-chasing Whose "Well done" are you working for?

We are constantly trying to make the things of God make sense in our minds. We want it to fit into our constructs.” “Sometimes the message of the sin nature is preached in such a manner that would have you feel totally helpless, ‘You know what, I gotta wait for God to change me, so I’m going to keep on going on in my sin.’” “Repentance isn’t just confessing and acknowledging your error, your sin, [or] your iniquity. It’s hating it enough to disengage from it.” “God has given you the ability to get up and walk.” “God uses simple, ordinary people who are willing to be interrupted.” “Do you really want the will of the Father, if that 'will' looks nothing like what you had envisioned for your life? If that 'will' gets you zero claps? If that 'will' gets you cancel culture?” Connect with Me!

E008 - Laying Foundations (Understanding Our Fight & Who it is Against)
In the fourth and last installment of the ‘Laying Foundations’ series, host Hannah explores the need to understand our fight and who it’s against. In our spiritual journey towards becoming free, it is essential in recognizing that identifying where the fight comes from and who it’s against will liberate us from the fears and temptations that can harm us and instead, will empower us to become closer to God. In this episode, Hannah speaks on the importance of the struggle beyond what we can see, why it is beyond flesh and blood, and why ignorance, complacency, and indifference can make us victims to excessive burnout and unnecessary battles. Growing in your faith is also about standing up for righteousness. For FULL show notes, making donations, or staying up to date with the Marked Life Blog, visit shesmarked.com  The Laying Foundations Series is a 4-part series and contains the essential things everyone should know in our journey toward freedom. These parts include understanding who we are, understanding who God is, understanding who Satan is, and understanding our fight and who it is against, which will be tackled today. [4:26] Today’s episode’s scripture references come from Ephesians 6:1 and Peter 5:8. Ephesians 6 begins by teaching us who we are fighting against and how we are fighting principalities, power, rulers of the darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high places—not other humans. Christians’ Casual Attitudes [06:39] Some examples of casual attitudes in our faith and why it’s the greatest WRONG you do to yourself [07:29] Reference from Dr. Charles Stanley’s book, Confronting Casual Christianity 1 Peter 5:8 [8:42] We are not to be ignorant of Satan’s vices as he wanders about like a lion, looking for the next victim. It’s Satan’s job to bring us out of God’s will. Who God has Purposed Us to Be [11:14] We are image-bearers and co-heirs with Christ. We are sons and daughters, the righteousness of Christ, and more than conquerors. [12:07] Some mountains that cause you to doubt God and withdraw from God are self-pity, regret, rage, depression, anxiety, offense, loneliness, rejection, fear, and guilt.  [15:23] Go into actual battle, which is prayer, intercession, and the Word of God because it is a reminder not to attack the human being, but the root. [16:08] You begin to see how the enemy works through unaware people when you start becoming more discerning. Quotes: “Knowledge is just the beginning, you can have a ton of knowledge and not apply anything.” Relevant Links: ●  Article - Is Casual Christianity Killing the Church? - Crossroads Christian Church ●  People Mentioned - Dr. Charles Stanley Matthew Henry ●  Book Mentioned - Confronting Casual Christianity by Dr. Charles Stanley Connect with Me!

E007 - Picking back up the Mic: Pressure, the Pandemic, and God's Amazing Grace
Welcome back! It's been a year since my last episode. Today, I talk about the reason why I took a break from podcasting and all that I've been up to during this time. I also talk about my new stirring new eBook, Through the Turbulence: Prayers from the Diary of a Broken Heart - available now on Amazon. “People need to hear what we have gone through so that they can see God in their lives and know that He is able.” - Hannah In this episode: Why I haven’t recorded for an entire year. My pregnancy journey and a 10-pound surprise! Pregnant + Rainbow Baby + Pandemic. A perfect recipe for fear and anxiety and even more perfect ingredients for God’s power and grace. My new eBook Through the Turbulence - Prayers from the Diary of a Broken Heart now available on Amazon. How God strengthens and molds us during our lowest moments, and the power of sharing your testimony after overcoming hard times to help others know God’s ability to heal. The second annual For the Moms Bold and Brave Series – powerful stories of Biblical Motherhood from women from around the world on the Marked Life Blog. The Return [0:52] The last episode for this podcast was in July of 2020. It has been a year since Hannah has stepped in front of the mic, talking, and sharing with her audience. Why Hannah stopped making episodes [2:15] Hannah didn’t intend to stop making episodes, and it certainly wasn’t her intention to stop podcasting. But without any warning, when she recorded her last episode in July of 2020, she found out several weeks before that she was pregnant. [3:17] Hannah gave birth in February 2021 to a beautiful, almost 10-pound baby girl. She spent last year being pregnant and overcoming intense morning sickness, needing all of her energy and time to get through her pregnancy. Certified #GirlMom and The Big Baby! [3:44] Hannah found out that her newborn baby girl was much bigger than she expected just days before her due date.  Challenges of the Rainbow Pregnancy [6:06] On Mother’s Day of 2019, Hannah had a 2nd-trimester pregnancy loss. So her newborn baby meant so much to her. She faced tremendous anxiety, along with the challenges of the pandemic. And having to experience that alone was very intense for her. [7:17] To experience pregnancy in such a fragile and delicate time in the world and her personal life was very intense for Hannah. It was very difficult for her to even think about podcasting. She focused all her little energy on taking care of herself and going through the obvious motions and emotions of pregnancy, all while being home with two little children in the process. Through the Turbulence - Prayers from the Diary of a Broken Heart [8:38] During the pandemic, Hannah was able to muster up the strength and release her ebook Through the Turbulence. The ebook is available on Amazon. The full title is Through the Turbulence: Prayers from the Diary of a Broken Heart. The Power and Necessity of Our Testimonies [10:21] People need to hear what we have gone through so that they can see God in their lives. And they can know that God is able, that God is faithful, not only to deliver us from those tough times but to mold and shape us in those tough times. 2nd Annual “For the Moms” - Bold & Brave [12:05] In May of 2021, Hannah launched the second annual “For the Moms - Bold and Brave” series.

E006 - Laying Foundations Pt IV (Understanding who Satan is)
We’re talking about some of the things that have been going on in my world, and I get back to the series, “Laying Foundations”. Today in part 3, we are discussing, “Understanding who Satan is”. This concept, while seemingly gloomy and dark, is necessary and even advised biblically. In 2 Corinthians 2:11, Christians are warned to not be ignorant of Satan’s methods and strategies.  This means that we have to know our enemy and his nature. Why is this important? It teaches and equips us on how to pray, how to resist, and ultimately how to fight. If there is a time that we need to know how to do these 3 things, NOW is that time.  In this series we have been focusing on the foundations that I believe are necessary for emotional and spiritual freedom and deliverance. As we dig deeper into each of these concepts, I realize that they will be important for our ongoing spiritual walk in general, not just for those seeking emotional deliverance. As a reminder, the 4 foundations that are covered in this series are: Understanding who God is, Understanding who we are; Understanding who Satan is, and Understanding our fight and who it is against.  Satan is the exact and total opposite of everything God is. God is light, Satan is darkness. God is truth. Satan is the father of lies. God is peace, Satan is confusion and destruction. God gives abundantly, Satan comes to steal. God convicts and transforms. Satan is the accuser of the brethren. Satan is counterfeit (Rev. 13:14 and 2 Cor 4:4)   (ref: https://www.bibletools.org/index.cfm/fuseaction/Library.sr/CT/BS/k/511/Basic-Doctrines-Satans-Origin-Destiny.htm)  https://www.bibletools.org/index.cfm/fuseaction/Topical.show/RTD/cgg/ID/19071/Satan-Murderer-from-Beginning.htm  https://www.ligonier.org/learn/articles/demons-servants-satan/ Scripture References: 1 Pet 5:8-9- Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.) John 8:44 - ...he was a murderer from the beginning Genesis 2:17 - But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die. 2 Cor 11:14 - For even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light  2 Cor 11:3 - But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ.  2 Cor 4:4 - In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. Isaiah 14:12–15 - How you are fallen from Heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations! For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into Heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.’ Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, to the lowest depths of the Pit. Ezekiel 28:12-17 - You were the model of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God…You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones. You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you. Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned. So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, O guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones. Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings.

E005 - Our Healing is Activated by the Blood of Jesus
We're taking a break from the series, "Laying Foundations" to talk  about the blood of Jesus. This break, influenced by the current COVID-19  pandemic sweeping the world, is necessary in reminding us of the power  and need for the blood of Jesus. In today's  episode, we talk a little about who Jesus is, His Deity and authority to  cleanse sin, and the countless ways that the blood operates. We also  talk about the healing in His blood, and why blood.

E004 - Laying Foundations Pt III - Understanding who We Are
We’re back today with part III of the series, “Laying foundations” - Understanding who We are. We live in an era that is entangled in self-worship. We invest a ton of time, effort and money in our minds, our bodies, our looks, our well being, everything. We are so wrapped in us. What makes us happy, what makes us comfortable, what makes us powerful, what makes us better than the next. One of the most profound things I have learned and am still learning about my identity in Christ, is that I am nothing. Realizing this allows us to surrender and "lay down" so that God can be in the lead. We will never experience healing and deliverance or be open to it, until we realize that we are spiritually bankrupt because of sin. Pride is what keeps us self-sufficient and blind. Once we understand our position and need, then we can begin rebuilding our broken identities by accepting who God says we are in His word: We are chosen, called, given grace fully and freely, we are loved, we are forgiven and redeemed, we have been given authority, we are children of God.

E003 - Laying Foundations Pt II - Understanding who God Is
We’re back today with part II of the series “Laying Foundations”. In episode 002, I introduced what I believe are the 4 vital foundations that must be laid as we move toward deliverance: 1) Understanding who God is 2) Understanding who we are 3) Understanding who Satan is 4) Understanding our fight and who it is against Once we know who God the Father, Our Father is, then we position ourselves to begin understanding things like: The load we are intended to carry vs. the load He is intended to carry Our true identity as Daughters of God As I was gathering my thoughts on this series, I thought of the term “fine print”. A lot of mistakes  and pain experienced in our lives is due to the fine print of our spiritual lives being overlooked, misunderstood, or not taken seriously. The details are always in the fine print. God fills every crevice of space. He is so right under our  noses, that we cannot be ignorant of Him. As Stephen Charnock puts it, "As he [God] cannot be comprehended in His essence, He cannot be unknown in His existence". Some of the attributes of God discussed are God's: Sovereignty Holiness Omnipotence Omniscience Wrath Love Immutability Sources referenced in this episode are from the following sites: https://bible.org/seriespage/4-nature-god https://www.monergism.com/thethreshold/sdg/charnock/attributes_p.pdf https://www.desiringgod.org/messages/how-the-spirit-helps-us-understand Additional resources and study on the nature and attributes of God can be found here: https://www.blueletterbible.org/faq/attributes.cfm https://www.biblestudytools.com/bible-study/topical-studies/15-amazing-attributes-of-god-what-they-mean-and-why-they-matter.html

E002 - Laying Foundations (Part I)
Before we can dive into emotional wounds, healing, and the challenges that we face as women, it is important to lay a foundation.  In today’s episode, 002, we talk about some of the foundations that I believe are necessary in the journey toward emotional healing and deliverance. Had I had this foundation, a solid understanding of it, I may have not went on living under so much pain and weight for so many years. The list of these foundations is not all inclusive, but it does consist of some of the foundations that have played a crucial role in my own personal journey of deliverance: 1) Understanding God's Nature 2) Understanding who We are 3) Understanding who Satan is 4) Understanding our fight and who it is against Scripture References: Ephesians 6:11-12 (Modern English Version) - "Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.  12 For  our fight is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities,  against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, and  against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places." Job 13:15 (MEV) - "Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him...." I Peter 4:12-13 (MEV) - "Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery  ordeal that is taking place among you to test you, as though some  strange thing happened to you.  13 But  rejoice insofar as you share in Christ’s sufferings, so that you may  rejoice and be glad also in the revelation of His glory." Acts 14:22 (New International Version) - "strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the  faith. “We must go through many hardships (trials) to enter the kingdom of God,”  they said." John 8:32 (MEV) - "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.” II Corinthians 4:16 (MEV) - "For this reason we do not lose heart: Even though our outward man is perishing, yet our inward man (spirit) is being renewed day by day." II Corinthians 10:4 (MEV) - "For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds." Matthew 19:26 (MEV) - "But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Depression Statistic Sites Referenced: www.psychiatry.org www.healthline.com/worldhealthorganization www.adaa.org

E001 - What's this Really all About?
In episode 000, we talked a little bit about the vehicle, podcasting - and some of my motivations for podcasting. In this episode, we’re going to be digging deeper to talk about the vehicle make up. What is this podcast really all about, who is it for, and why “She’s Marked”? Today we dig in a little to talk about holiness and what it means to be set apart. Many times as Christians, we miss this piece completely, and produce fruitless and ineffective lives filled with religion. We also discuss the big difference between believing in Christ vs. living for Him. Other points cover the tons of lies we believe (and the outward sources we look to) regarding our identity and worth. These lies and sources drive us to build outwardly, while crumbling inwardly. Scripture References: Ephesians 6:11 John 8:12 John 8:32 Ephesians 5:7-14
