Do you ever wonder how the next generation is going to grow up with a healthy view of sexuality?  Do you struggle talking about sexuality yourself?  Sometimes we want to start conversations with those we love, but we just don't have the words.  On this podcast we dive into the important and vulnerable topic of healthy sexuality with honesty and candor.

Pastor and Pure Desire speaker Rodney Wright joins us to help clarify shame vs. guilt, what intimacy really is and how we move toward it in relationships, and how an understanding of neuroscience matters when it comes to pornography and addiction.  We also talk about why early intervention is critical, when a behavior is a problem rather than a pattern.

If you are a parent, you can't miss this episode.   But really, don't we all need it?  Any human who struggles in big or small ways in the area of healthy sexuality will benefit from this discussion.  Let's learn how to talk about this together and how we can foster helpful and faith-filled conversations in our homes and relationships.

Jamie Ivey is a woman on the go. Fellow mom of four, wife to worship pastor Aaron, creator and host of the very popular podcast, The Happy Hour With Jamie Ivey, it's no surprise she has lots of energy. She also has a refreshing honesty as she talks about her own journey, her struggles (both past and current), and her faith. There is no pretense here, simply a woman who shares her story so others can see Jesus in the redemption.

We laughed a good deal, we covered some tough stuff, and we get great podcast recommendations from the podcast master herself. From traveling for work, to grandparents stepping in, to her husband's cooking, to pornography, we cover A to Z and back again. No topic is off limits, no question too personal. An encouraging word on how to be a safe person for other women when they confess sin and loving God more than pleasing people.

The perfect episode to listen to as you go about your actual life. Part practical, part inspirational, Jamie is the quintessential sister. We think you'll agree that this is one conversation that will go down in sisterhood history as we talk about the freedom offered through Jesus alone.

S-U-M-M-E-R  T-I-M-E!  It's what we wait for all year long.  We often have high hopes and big dreams for our summer months, yet the reality of unscheduled days can hit hard.  If you have kids at home this summer and want some help figuring out how to do the daily schedule well, we're here to help.  Or if you want tips and ideas on what to read, what to eat, and what to wear this season, this episode is for you too!  

Krista and Alex tackle all things summer.  From designating a day of the week for baking, to the best porch swing to purchase, to how to get your kids off their screens, to the best bag for travel, they help you think through these fun and important months that break up the school year.

What does it mean to be a woman of legacy? To have an impact beyond today? The Open Door Sisterhood is set to equip women to do just that, design a life that has an eternal imprint. And mother/daughter duo Jackie Green and Lauren Green McAfee, of the Hobby Lobby Green family, are on a similar mission to inspire women to think past today. Their new book Only One Life features women throughout history who have followed God's call to live with legacy in mind.

Our conversation with Jackie and Lauren covers stories from their own family and decisions to women featured in the book. We talk through generosity, specific callings, what is eternal, and how we can discern where God has placed us for influence. Nothing could reflect the spirit of The Open Door Sisterhood more than this conversation with two women walking through the doors God is opening to act as world changers right where they are.

From fighting busyness to the discipline of saying "no" we hear how these two women discern the opportunities in front of them. A multi-generational message that rings true no matter your stage of life, we can be sowing into what will last for eternity. An inspiring conversation that pushed us to once again consider this one life we've been given and how we are spending it.
