Every fall we go on a quest to find everyday world changers. You nominate them. We choose them. They are incredibly inspiring, and prove that each one of us really can make a difference right where we are.We are featuring three women today.
The first is Rebecca Smith. Rebecca was a mom and Etsy shop owner who had a knack for sewing and an eye for design. When the business outgrew her, she hired a woman to help make bags who lived in her town. Little did she know the large impact that one small decision would make.
MaryLynn Kenary, our second world changer, has been living with cancer for more than two decades, and is currently in stage four. She shares about how she has used her condition to reach out to others and build a deeper faith.
And wrapping up the episode we have Alyssa Haley sharing about her big dream of creating a community center for youth right in the middle of the town where she lives.
Let's allow these women to inspire us to go futher and deeper. And may it help propel us out of our comfort zones and into all that God has for us.
When Kelly Minter moved to Nashville years ago it wasn’t to become a Bible teacher or to write a cookbook, she was pursuing the music dream. After multiple signed and failed record deals, Kelly had the chance to do two things she hadn’t set out to do: write and publish a Bible study and travel to the Amazon. Both of those opportunities took her down unexpected roads, or through unexpected “open doors”.
A jump-right-in kind of conversation where we felt like we starting with years of friendshipas our foundation, Kelly felt like an instant sister. We hear about her newest book, a cookbook she wrote with friend and chef Regina Pinto. We learn about the books that have influenced Kelly’s interest in healthy, fresh food and how her brother’s pizza dough didn’t make the cookbook cut because it is just too complicated. A woman of humble spirit and mighty strength we were inspired to get cooking and invite others over.
A delightful interview you won’t want to miss. The “work sweatpants” vs. “home sweatpants” tip that any work-at-home woman can relate to is enough of a reason to tune in.
Do you have a favorite place to go and relax or reflect? A spot you feel a little more at home in the world? Chances are it is a place your soul can breathe and open up.
Whether we are experiencing deep loss, processing an experience, or simply taking a pause from the hectic pace of modern life, we all need those places of peace.
On today’s episode, Linda Lawrence Hunt describes how deep grief and loss birthed first a global foundation, then a passion for creating a warm and inviting space where countless individuals could come and find respite. She inspires us to not only find that for ourselves, but to create it in our own unique way for others.
Whether choosing new paint colors, planting a garden, cooking a savory meal, or building a fire, we can all create places where souls can breathe.
On this Election Day special, Kathryn Freeman talks us through civic engagement, difficult conversations, and asking questions to learn. A seminary student who already holds a law degree, Kathryn has worked for over a decade in public policy. But don't let that intimidate you, Kathryn simply loves people and wants systems to work on their behalf.
Kathryn reminds us that as the Church, we are like God's orchestra: we each have our unique role to play. We can't all be experts on every issue, but we can learn and be passionate about a few. She thinks a good starting place is to focus on issues that most impact our neighbors. She also reminds us that ultimately God cares about justice and the work is his. We are meant to do our part that helps us love him and our neighbors well.
As we approach family conversations over the holidays, Kathryn offers us great tips on how to learn and listen in order to better understand various points of view. A sisterhood conversation on being world changers for good right where we are.
