Anjuli Paschall knows what it is to escape the uncomfortable. However in this time of pandemic, when the walls seem to be closing in on us, it feels nearly impossible to escape where we are. Anjuli's invitation is to stay. Stay in your uncomfortable circumstances, feel the hard feelings, and invite Jesus into those place to experience his transformation.
In an honest, timely, and poignant interview we hear how this mom to five is "staying" during the pandemic. Though she may want to avoid, deflect, or escape the places of friction and tension, she is choosing to consciously be present so that God can do his work. For most of us who are literally staying at home because we have no other option, this mindset of choosing to stay gives us opportunity to grow and allow Jesus to meet us in our real moments of need.
From big griefs to small moments, this invitation to bring the holy into our reality may be just what you need to fully experience what God has for you during this season of "stay".
We’ve all heard about Wuhan, China, the birthplace of the notorious Corona Virus. What we haven’t heard as much is a direct interview with someone on the ground, in lockdown, on the twenty fifth floor of an apartment building.
Rebecca Arendell Franks wrote a Facebook post from quarantine in Wuhan that went viral. After lamenting their experience in several other posts, her husband challenged her to write about the good things springing out of their situation.
Alex and Krista asked Rebecca to come on the show to talk about what it has been like walking through the season of the Corona Virus from Wuhan. No matter where you are on your own journey with the virus, sheltering in place, or freely moving, you will find pieces of your own journey in Rebecca’s story.
We are living through an unprecedented global pandemic. We have not experienced anything like this in our lifetimes. As we consider the likelihood of weeks at home, kids off from school, and what it means to practice social distancing, we wonder what exactly we should do to prepare for the unknown.
Our guest Kathi Lipp brings us the "safe and sane" approach. We need to be prepared and wise about our choices, but not panic and operate from a scarcity mindset. We must remember to care for our neighbors out of abundance, control what we can control, and practice faith for God to carry what we cannot. Kathi brings us both practical next steps, empathy for where we are today, and most importantly hope that we will get through this together.
From shopping lists to mindset shifts, you won't want to miss this conversation so relevant for today's dilemmas. Where else are you going to get both the practical and inspirational as we face the unknown today that COVID 19 brings? We are here for you sister trusting God is with you and goes ahead of you.
The phrase "world changer" is thrown around on Pinterest memes, slogans, and yes, even here at The Sisterhood. But what does it really mean to be a world changer?
In this episode Krista & Alex break down The Sisterhood definition of what this phrase really means, and how we can start being a world changer in our actual lives, right where we are, today.
Gena Thomas joins us for the second part of the interview to share her story of helping a Honduran five year old who was separated from her mother at the border. This story helps us see how God can take small, faithful steps, and turn them into giant leaps of faith and hope.

Kerri Pomarolli is a woman who likes to laugh. A professional comedian, she has appeared on The Tonight Show 29 times. From Comedy Central to church auditoriums, her reputation for clean comedy has taken her around the country. She sees her comedy as the assignment God has given her and though she doesn’t feel like a typical Hollywood gal, she is happy to work.
We laughed more than usual in this episode, but that doesn’t mean we only covered light topics. Kerri talks about her divorce, her unique co-parenting arrangement, and how she makes the most of circumstances she didn’t want or plan for. She focuses on what she does have rather than fixating on what she doesn’t.
If you want a little levity in your day, push play. Kerri makes us laugh while reminding us that no one’s lane is easy, but if we stay in the one God has given us we will certainly be most fruitful. A fun conversation that swings between the Girl Scouts as a mafia to ring to going through divorce while in the public eye, it is filled with honesty and truth. Kerri Pomarolli is now the sisterhood’s comic.
