https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-s2uta-11f82ef Do we want Jesus on our terms or His? Today we are back with part two of our discussion with our dad, discussing the things Jesus did on each day of the Passion Week (this week, as of when we recorded this), and we're asking some pretty important questions when it comes to Christianity...

Pt. 1 Poor Planning Or Deliberate Details (Ft. Scott Hobbs) – S2:EP48
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-5byzh-11f4338 Have you ever taken the time to study the details of Passion Week and all of the things Jesus did before He died and resurrected? Since our dad, Scott, is basically an expert on this amazing topic, we asked him to be on the show and give us the run-down on what Christians should... Continue Reading →
WILDERNESS AND WASTELAND
I believe we are all aware that if a piece of land is not cultivated consistently and pruned constantly, it will never cease to return to being a wilderness and wasteland. It will always go back to its former state. There is one thing that I don’t believe we are all aware of, though… Our hearts can do the same if we are not obedient to Christ and allow Him to do His work of cultivating within us.
BLOOPER EP. In Honor Of 6,000 Downloads – S2:EP47
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-grtch-11ed835 Did you know we've been keeping a little secret?! The show hit 6,000 downloads a couple weeks ago, so we put together a blooper episode for you this week to celebrate! There have been lots of embarrassing and crazy moments from our podcasting journey, and well, we're also crazy enough to share them with... Continue Reading →
THE PRESENT PRESSURE
The present pressure and anxiousness we’re all feeling is a direct result of the evil that is freely roaming about, but there should be a radical difference in the way we continue to operate when compared to people who have no hope and have not put their trust in Jesus.
Striving For Fruit While Ignoring The Roots – S2:EP46
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-zaq3n-11e3809 Do you feel the need to do "churchy" things so that you can appear really spiritual to others? It's more than easy to strive for spiritual fruit while ignoring the roots of our lives and what our source truly is. Let's chat about "remaining" in Jesus in a world that constantly tries to pull... Continue Reading →
This dark, gloomy weather here in Ohio made it feel like a good day to share a poem! I love this one in particular because it encourages us to not stand idle when God has given us work to do. Though we may not think it to be grand, nevertheless, it is our mission!
How ”OMG” Is Belittling Our View Of God – S2:EP45
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-hq83i-11d9edc Even Christians are taking the Lord's name in vain?! I know, we can't believe our ears either, but many Christians now think it's no big deal to react with a loud "OMG" on social media and in everyday conversations. In this episode, we chat about what effect this action is having on the lost,... Continue Reading →
NEVER REALLY WHAT YOU WANT
Getting what you want is never really what you want. We are our own problem, and until we get ourselves out of the way by surrendering all to Christ, we will only create more disorder within our lives.
Christians And Cussing (Is It Acceptable?) – S2:EP44
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-zcasu-11d0429 Can Christians cuss and honor God at the same time? This is a popular topic that is often brought up whenever we ask y'all what you'd like to hear us chat about and has been on our list for a while now! In this episode, Lilly shares a crazy gas station story, and Madie... Continue Reading →
A CHRISTIAN WOMAN’S THOUGHTS ABOUT INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
The world is NOT celebrating Biblical womanhood. It’s celebrating a sinful, sexualized, and perverted version of womanhood that it believes will truly satisfy us and make us better individuals. But it’s not what God intended for women, and we will never be truly satisfied until we are surrendered to His design.
How To Have Deep And Meaningful Friendships – S2:EP43
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-bbhhn-11c5e90 Do most of your friendships feel "surface level" lacking unity and joy? In this episode, Madie shares how she has felt when her friends don't put in the effort to be attentive and listen well, and how she has had to allow the Lord to work on her heart in that area, and Lilly... Continue Reading →
Mary Magdalene and the other Mary, the same women who watched the crucifixion, are now sitting against the tomb, just as they had sat against the cross; still longing to express their love and devotion to Christ. Still, they were seeking after Him.
The Rave Of Toxicity And Toxic Friendships/Relationships – S2:EP42
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-enebj-11bc547 Are there toxic people roaming about our world today? Why yes, of course. Are those who are willing to say the hard but truthful things and "call out" sin, toxic? Well, according to our world today, apparently so. In this episode, we attempt to explain how to discern if someone is genuinely "toxic" or... Continue Reading →
The wooden altar, sitting a few feet above the floor, only a short distance from where we all sat, was covered with ridiculous clutter. Game boxes, candy bags, sound equipment, cords, a laptop, and several other objects lined the length of the altar, with only a few small spots of the smooth wooden surface still visible. As I stared at it, I was overcome with a desperate, sorrowful feeling. A feeling of longing to see that altar in use again.
What We Genuinely Think & Feel About TikTok – S2:EP41
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-znypi-11b18e2 Is TikTok ruining people's attention spans and the concept of social media accountability? TikTok is one of the most used and trending apps of our generation, and in today's episode, we discuss whether or not we believe Christians should allow this app to be a part of their daily lives. We also share our... Continue Reading →
The American Church threw real, Biblical Christianity out the window when we started manufacturing a weekly gathering of people who wanted to be “religious”, yet keep their lives, incomes, and time for themselves instead of sacrificing everything to follow Jesus. We ask God to bless our lifestyles, our activities, and our futile efforts even though they offend His very nature.
The ONE-HUNDREDTH Episode (Reacting To Previous Episodes & Sharing About The Studio) -S2:EP40
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-3exdp-11a7e7e Can you believe it?! This is the ONE-HUNDREDTH episode of A Few Minutes With The Few! Let's celebrate together by taking some time to reminisce and dream about what the future might look like! We LOVE each and every one of you, and can't thank you enough for being here and for listening! Without... Continue Reading →
OUR OLD, DEAD SELF
I believe that continuing to see ourselves as sinners after we are saved is wrong, and that wrong view of ourselves has a hugely negative impact on our growth as Christians. It keeps us right where the enemy wants us; not living in the fullness of Christ!
Can Christians Redeem The Movie ”Redeeming Love”? Ft. Michelle Hobbs – S2:EP39
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-5wwew-119e66a Have you been hearing all the buzz about the book/movie "Redeeming Love"? After being asked what our true thoughts are, we sat down with our mom (Michelle) to record an episode revealing our hot take on the entertainment industry and the things they continue to get away with. Though many believe this book/movie is... Continue Reading →
EVEN IF YOU DON’T FEEL VERY BRAVE
Peter, the oldest of four siblings who discover a place called Narnia, quickly comes to realize that he must lead an army against the White Witch who has used force and fear to make all of Narnia cower and comply with her wicked demands. Lewis says, “Peter did not feel very brave; indeed, he felt he was going to be sick. But that made no difference to what he had to do.”
Should Christians Have Friends Of The Opposite Gender? – S2:EP38
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-tj9y9-11939d4 Do you have friends of the opposite gender? Today's discussion is quite an interesting one as we challenge the thought that it is perfectly ok to have a "friend" of the opposite gender, and whether or not Christians should engage in this action. In our experience, at least one person in the friendship will... Continue Reading →
GOT MY HEART GOING
My friend’s response was this, “It’s so good! You got my heart going.” I was struck by her words. Not because I thought she wouldn’t like it, but I was struck by how she said that it “got her heart going”.
Let’s Talk About Lies, Threats, And Fear Within Politics – S2:EP37
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-a86mg-118bb18 Are you feeling overwhelmed by all of the craziness regarding politics, m a n d a t e s, and loss of freedom? This week's episode may be a day late, but we are back with a great discussion about the lies, threats, and fear that people are scared to confront. This fast-paced episode... Continue Reading →
TWENTY-TWO THINGS CHRISTIANS SHOULD DO IN 2022
We get asked quite often how to practically get serious about living for Jesus, and I pray this list is one you can refer back to time and time again to help you do exactly that. Here are 22 things I believe Christians should do in 2022!
Why Does Gen-Z Have Such A Hard Time Committing To Relationships? – S2:EP36
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-574s4-117ffd8 Are relationships really supposed to be easy to get into and then out of? The world's dating and relationship advice would make you believe so, but does God feel the same? After all, He is the One who instituted marriage and set up the relationship process. Let's chat about why Gen-Z has MAJOR commitment... Continue Reading →
IF YOU DON’T LOOK UP
But what if we could be the people to really give them something to follow? What if we helped them to follow the radically different Christ-like path? Throughout history, it has been the people who are willing to live radically who have made a difference, won wars, expanded the gospel, and saved nations. They have been radically different in the face of fear and darkness and have made the decision to break away from the crowd.
Our Practical Morning Routines For 2022 (And What Our Focus Words Are) – S2:EP35
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-u9zvt-1176516 Not quite sure how to create a simple morning routine that is focused and intentional? In today's episode, we talk about what our focus words for this year are, and how we get all the important things that we want to get done, DONE! Well, most of the time that is, haha! Let's get...

WHY YOU DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT 2022 BEING “YOUR YEAR”
If you want to have the best year yet, stop chasing what you want and start chasing what Jesus wants for you. If you’ve been found, why are you living like you’re lost?
How To Set Resolutions That Remain In 2022 – S2:EP34
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-6j2me-116c67d Do you have 2022 all planned out yet?! Just kidding! Sometimes we wish life would work that way, but the truth is that most of the time, it just doesn't. The good news, though, is that you CAN set your priorities and determine what you ultimately want to live for. As Christians, this is... Continue Reading →
START 2022 OFF RIGHT
Our mission remains the same. Madie & I, and our family, want to help people just like you get serious about being serious for Jesus. We don’t believe that anyone can take Jesus and living for Him too seriously.
EVERY NOW AND THEN (BLOGMAS DAY THIRTY-ONE)
Most of the time they sat in silence, but every now and then one of them would pick up a flute and start playing; breaking through the oppressive silence. Pushing back the darkness.
WAR WITHOUT WAR (BLOGMAS DAY THIRTY)
You see, we wage “wars” that won’t ever satisfy us like real war will. All because we don’t want it to be an inconvenience on our part. We want to create the “wars” we fight. We want to plan them so that we’re certain we can win them before we even start.
HOW ARE YOUR SPIRITS DRESSED? (BLOGMAS DAY TWENTY-NINE)
You see, I believe that Scrooge’s story is so powerful because it can so closely relate to us and our present lives. I want you to think back over your life. Think about the past, about your innocence. Think about your present, the things you most want. Think about what your future may be, about whether your eternity will be dark as Scrooge’s was once bound to be.
CHANGED YOUR MIND? (BLOGMAS DAY TWENTY-EIGHT)
In the final scene, Churchill's minister for war asks him one question in regard to his position on Hitler. "Changed your mind?" to which Churchill responds, "Those who never change their mind, never change anything."
1,000 YEARS FROM RIGHT NOW (BLOGMAS DAY TWENTY-SEVEN)
As we have just experienced Christmas day, I want us all to ask ourselves a simple question. Presents or presence? Which of those two options are more valuable to you?
CHRISTMAS CAROL POEM (BLOGMAS DAY TWENTY-SIX)
Happy Sunday! Our family has decided to continue BLOGMAS this week because we have enjoyed sharing with y'all, and didn't want it to end quite yet! Let's continue to challenge ourselves to live wholeheartedly for Christ, no matter what day it is! Enjoy this poem for today. 🙂
THE KING HAS COME (BLOGMAS DAY TWENTY-FIVE)
The King has come! We celebrate this Christmas Day for that reason. No longer is our world grey and grim. No, it is now bursting with hope and joy because the Light has come into our darkness in the most powerful way. What an adventure this has been! Have a very Merry Christmas, y’all!
This Lost Christmas Poem Will Change Your Perception of Christmas Forever! – S2:E33
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-y6cwa-1162bdd Are you ready to be inspired by a powerful poem this Christmas Day?! It is the very LAST day of BLOGMAS, and we could not be more excited to share this special moment celebrating the birth of Christ, our Savior, with you today! If you would like to read this poem in text form,... Continue Reading →
FOR LACK OF WONDER (BLOGMAS DAY TWENTY-FOUR)
I have a question for us to think about today… What does Jesus marvel at us for?
CHRISTMAS IS WHAT WE DEFINE IT AS (BLOGMAS DAY TWENTY-THREE)
You see, in that moment, I focused on the darkness, and the power I thought it had over the way we may celebrate Christmas in the future. Now, I focus on the small things, as I wrote about in one of my other, recent posts. I began to focus on the things I can do to keep darkness at bay, the intimate gatherings we have during this season. The good food we are blessed to enjoy. The presents we have the privilege of giving, and I was reminded all over again that Christmas is about the little things.
CAN’T YOU JUST SEE IT? (BLOGMAS DAY TWENTY-TWO)
But let's stop and sit for a minute. Just let the Holy Spirit refresh our minds. Who is the Baby in the manger... Really?
AND FOR WHAT? (BLOGMAS DAY TWENTY-ONE)
The question is, how different are we than the folks Gabriel was describing from those early days? What is Gabriel saying about our level of belief today? Do you think he would be looking down at us and saying, "Now this generation of the Church really gets it. Man, look how they are living."
If You Feel Like There‘s More To Christmas For You (2021 Christmas Special) – S2:EP32
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-ceikn-115d802 Are y'all ready & excited for Christmas week to begin?! Last week's episode was just so fun that we decided to start this episode with another Christmas Q&A! Let's chat about how BLOGMAS has changed our hearts this year, and just how important it is to cultivate some quiet in our lives. If you... Continue Reading →
HARMONIZING WITH HEAVEN (BLOGMAS DAY TWENTY)
Our souls are in desperate need of harmony. Harmony with our Messiah. We are longing to dance with the only One who understands everything about us. The One who doesn’t simply play the note we long to dance to, but is the note itself.
IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER POEM (BLOGMAS DAY NINETEEN)
Enjoy this delightful poem this cold, winter Sunday! We look forward to continuing on with this journey of Advent with you this final week!
DEALING WITH DARKNESS (BLOGMAS DAY EIGHTEEN)
From the time when he was that innocent child in a manger, this was his goal. This was his mission. This is the reason He suffered and died. To deal with Darkness.
WHICH SPIRIT HAVE YOU? (BLOGMAS DAY SEVENTEEN)
It was said of old Scrooge that after that, he kept Christmas in his heart all the days of the year. What will people say about us? Which spirit have you?
PAY ATTENTION TO THE PREPOSITIONS (BLOGMAS DAY SIXTEEN)
Let me be clear, this substandard approach to genuine Christian living was never God’s intention for His people. God calls His people to holy living as evidenced in Matthew 1:21. Jesus did not arrive on planet earth with the mission of saving His people IN their sins but FROM them.
CHRIST, THE LOGOS (BLOGMAS DAY FIFTEEN)
Imagine how your life would change if you made an effort to seek out things that nourish your soul and glorify Christ as the logos! How would your child’s life change if you gave them great works of literature, art, and music to consider versus Facebook, YouTube, and Tik-tok.
Christmas Pet Peeves, Traditions, & Advice – S2:EP31
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-7ncp2-1156cea Do you have any Christmas pet peeves? How about traditions you love to do around this time of year? Let's jump into some lighthearted questions together and have some fun with it! There were technical difficulties with the episode that was supposed to be up yesterday, however, that won't stop us from chatting with... Continue Reading →
GIVE YOUR YES (BLOGMAS DAY FOURTEEN)
Will we choose to engage with the story that is unfolding right before our eyes? Do we long to rise up and open our eyes to His coming this Christmas season and in this New Year that is before us? Just as Gideon, Mary, Joseph, Noah, Peter, Simeon, Micaiah, and many other heroes of the faith all had to choose whether or not to engage with the story before them, so do we.
ADVENT INSECURITY (BLOGMAS DAY THIRTEEN)
Calvin was confused because his church friends really did not understand the meaning of Advent. They could not explain the meaning of Advent to him. However, Hunter knows fully what Advent means because she is celebrating a new life, a new start with Jesus.
CHRISTMAS BELLS (BLOGMAS DAY TWELVE)
Happy Sunday, everyone! We will be back again tomorrow with a new BLOGMAS post. Be sure to scroll through the recent posts from this past week in case you missed any!
THE EVERYDAY DEEDS (BLOGMAS DAY ELEVEN)
You see, the reason I always felt so much happier and more content around Christmas time, is because of the small things, that kept the darkness at bay for the month of December. The small things that changed a little girl’s view of the world, even for a short time.
TRUE WORSHIPPERS (BLOGMAS DAY TEN)
I just pray that we spend more time on cultivating our relationship with Christ this Christmas than we do on buying and wrapping material gifts. Let us be swept up in the true wonder of the season; the Lord came to dwell among us! May we feed our own souls with the right kind of worship and share the good news of Jesus birth, death, resurrection, and second coming with those around us.
ALWAYS WINTER (BLOGMAS DAY NINE)
There is comfort in the trials that winter brings, because the Lord who has created them never lets them weather us without also allowing us to experience the hope and joy of Christmas. Jesus has always promised His presence to us. But in order to understand the beauty of Christmas, we must understand just how bleak winter can be.
JESUS, PEARL HARBOR, AND BLOGMAS (BLOGMAS DAY EIGHT)
As I have listened to stories today from some of my favorite historians, and pondered the commitment of the greatest generation of Americans on the heels of Pearl Harbor, I am left wondering if we presently have any real understanding of that type of sacrifice.
WHAT IF? (BLOGMAS DAY SEVEN)
While I was driving, I was asked if I thought that, on either occasion, those people knew Jesus? We hadn’t talked about either situation at the time, but apparently, I was not the only one to notice what was happening. My reply was vague, at best, because even if I thought that they did know Jesus, they certainly didn’t act as if they did.
ODE TO EBENEZER SCROOGE (BLOGMAS DAY SIX)
Scrooge examined his life, his heart, against God’s standard and found himself lacking. He knew that he could not change on his own but called on the Spirit to strive within him. You and I have a wonderful opportunity to ask the Holy Spirit to live within us this Christmas day and every day, friend!
How To Prepare Your Heart For Christmas – S2:EP30
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-ry2g2-114bbd1 Is it possible to keep our focus on Jesus in this Christmas season? We're apt to think so! Let's have a heart-to-heart discussion about the things that often become our main priorities, and how to reach the point where Jesus is your ONLY priority. In this episode, we talk about some practical ways we... Continue Reading →
CHOOSE SOMETHING LIKE A STAR POEM
We pray this encourages your heart to be willing to see the mystery of Christ and His coming. Happy Sunday & Merry Christmas!
WHO ARE WE TO HIM? (BLOGMAS DAY FOUR)
I’m going to be bold and write that maybe many of us are uncertain about who we genuinely are to Jesus, because we live for the noise, the busyness. Our arms never can stop flailing about. We can never sit still to seek Him. We despise quiet and if it begins to surround us, we fill it with other distractions.
FROM CHILDISH TO CHILDLIKE (BLOGMAS DAY THREE)
I believe that a childlike faith actually consists of this thought that we are merely a small part in the big scheme of life, but we take pride in Jesus wanting to use us. We still see those endless possibilities, but they are now cultivated by God, and used to help us step off the shore and dive into an ocean of incredibility.
OUR LONGED-FOR GUEST (BLOGMAS DAY TWO)
Advent is a chance for us to prepare for the coming or arrival of the most important person into our midst. Friend, is Jesus your longed-for guest today and every day? Do you desire the arrival of the kingdom in your home and in your heart this Advent season?
THE WAY FORWARD IS THE WAY BACK (BLOGMAS DAY ONE)
I invite you to allow God to bring you back to Him this Christmas. Back to His heart and what truly matters in life. The reason He came into this world was to save us from our wretched sin and the misery that pertains to it. May revivals take place in our hearts and homes this year as we begin where we may have left our first love.
What You Haven‘t Been Told (Christians MUST Know) – S2:EP29
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-fx95e-11432d5 Are you aware of the shocking details behind the manufacturing of the c o v i d vaxx? We can't stay quiet about what we now know, and we hope that the truth is revealed to the American Church and that we each take this to heart. Now is the time to get off... Continue Reading →
MANIPULATED MINDS (PART TWO)
The American Church has always stood strong on fighting for life in the past; we cannot stop now because of our ignorance. I strongly believe that this is Satan’s plan. If he can keep us ignorant, then we will fall for anything.
Kingdom Over Village – S2:EP28
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-zzh8h-113a6cc Have you ever craved attention from the "village" around you? We certainly have, and in this episode, we dive deep into the topics of pleasing the world around us, building God's kingdom, and taking Eternity seriously! Join us in a super real conversation, and hear about some of the things that have convicted us... Continue Reading →
MANIPULATED MINDS (PART ONE)
How sickening it is to watch Christians listen to and genuinely believe not only what the enemy says, but also the devout liars that he has specifically placed in this world to manipulate our minds. We lack discernment. We lack courage. We lack a passion for the truth to be revealed in the American Church.
DANCING IN THE DISAPPOINTMENT
Suffering isn’t easy. Pain isn’t comfortable. Disappointment isn’t ideal. But it doesn’t mean that it can’t be beautiful.
This Could Make Or Break Your Future (Debt, College, & Choices) – S2:EP27
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-ikzsw-1126d5e Is it possible to make the right choices when it comes to money, college, and the future? How does God expect Christians to live when the world we are living in constantly tells us to just "go for it"? We don't have it all figured out, and we're probably questioning many of the same... Continue Reading →
A ROAD WITH NO END
What I’ve found, is that it is extremely difficult to measure sacrifice; it often seems to me that it is a road with no end.
When The Fear Of God Is Gone Ft. Scott Hobbs – S2:EP26
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-mh2nu-111d1b3 Do we live in a world that has any remaining reverence for God? This question has been on our minds a lot recently. What happens to a society when the fear of God is gone? How are Christians to react? Does the American Church even fear Him? We discuss all of these questions and... Continue Reading →
IT’S NOT ABOUT HOW HARD YOU CAN HIT
Let me tell you, I’ve been hit for a little bit of all those things at one time or another. But the moment I made the decision to not get hit for my stupid decisions, but for the truth I want to spread about Jesus, the atmosphere completely changed in my boxing ring.

We received an amazing question asking that very thing, and we have a serious conversation about it that we want you to be a part of! When it comes to our personalities, our... Continue Reading →
Everything that God has claimed, is counterclaimed by Satan. This truth has become incredibly evident to me over the last two years, especially in the midst of all the chaos and craziness. Satan is in the business of distorting the good and beautiful things God created and intended to be used to bring Him glory.

HOW 05*481 TAUGHT ME THAT THERE IS MINISTRY IN THE MESS
I can personally testify that when God gives you someone to pour into and a place to do so, don’t be surprised if it’s the last person you thought of and the only place that’s on your list of places to never go.
How 2020 Convinced Us To Homeschool Our Future Kids – S2:EP23
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-az2yj-10f7426 Are you concerned by how the world is "destroying" the nuclear family? We have all seen quite a lot over the past two years, and today on the show, we are diving in head first with a topic that we are really passionate about! In this episode, we talk about our homeschooling experience, and... Continue Reading →
GIVE ME YOUR HAND
As I personally wrestled through the month of August, God challenged me to give Him my hand. Not to take His hand, but to give Him mine. You see, God wants to hold on to us, so that if we happen to let go of Him, we won’t fall.
I‘m In A Lonely Season… HELP! – S2:EP22
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-e6ja2-10edc62 Have you ever found yourself wondering how you could love others in a lonely season, or what you're supposed to do when you desire a meaningful friendship/relationship, but just can't seem to make it happen? Truth is, we were made with that desire and it is a vital part of us that we sometimes... Continue Reading →
WHEN THE MIND IS A BATTLEFIELD
Whether we want to recognize it or not, you and I were made for 2021, and God didn’t put us here to be stressed out or overcome by the world. He has a much bigger purpose for our time and for this generation.
Am I Missing ALL The Fun? – S2:EP21
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-zvesz-10e4a9c Do you ever feel like you're missing out on all of the "fun" because you have made the radical choice to live for Jesus? You know, the whole teenage experience, parties, friend hangouts, drinking, dating around, etc? Ok good, because we definitely have too. However, we want to discuss the fact that young people...

HOW TO SAY NO
Our family has talked to and messaged with so many people recently who have no clue what to say in their e x e m p t i o n request, and I think that this will be just what you need to give you a great foundation to start with if you are wondering the same thing! I asked our mom, Michelle Hobbs, who has been a Family Nurse Practitioner for over twenty years to give us her best tips and pieces of advice.

HOW CAN MAN DIE BETTER?
I have become sick and tired of churchgoers acting like they are such martyrs for the faith when they stand up for a minor, frivolous argument in which they do not even act like Jesus. I hate to even think about how many of us will die thinking we have accomplished something important, that we have faced fearful odds. Only because you blew up at someone about something on Facebook and will then have to face the sad reality that you did not help someone grow closer to the Lord but rather made them run in the other direction. I believe that the kind of stress you experience matters.

HOW TO NOT BECOME NUMB WHILE THE CHURCH IS
It’s never been more convenient to become numb. The American Church is numb. Numb to the things God is speaking to our hearts, numb to the opportunities He places before us, numb to causes we should be fighting for.
The Issue With Going Along And Getting Along – S2:EP18
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-kqcfb-10c97de Have you noticed the issue we have of going along in order to get along in the American Church?

It is indeed up to my generation to be God-fearing, educated, intelligent individuals or we will live our lives believing and falling for every lie the world chooses to tell us. Unfortunately, this is how most of the generation that came before us currently lives.

A LIVING HOUSE

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-7v3ts-109bac0 Have you noticed that when someone wants to "change" their gender they only have one option to "switch" to? Interesting, right?

WORLDLY WINS OR SPIRITUAL SUCCESSES?
Too often I think we view Christianity as something “to do” instead of “to be”. It’s great to do what the Gospel says, I’m not discounting that. But think of how much better it would be if we were to actually build the Kingdom and follow Jesus’ example because that’s who we are?

THERE ARE NO COINCIDENCES

BUT IF NOT
The story of Dunkirk has always inspired me, but I just recently discovered the power of this message that was sent. This message was so incredible because the army at Dunkirk was saying simply that they REFUSED to let the tyrant that was Adolf Hitler, force them into submission and worship of the diabolical group that was the Nazi’s. They pleaded for the British government to help rescue them, ‘But if Not’, they would fight, and they would go on fighting, until the destruction of every last soldier.

THE POWER OF PREVAILING PATERNAL PRAYER

Single As A Pringle (Our Thoughts On Dating) – S2:EP6

FOR ONE ANOTHER
Over the past three years, The Few has had its fair share of highs and lows, yet God has been greater than them all. He has held us together when Madie and I thought we’d fall apart, and made the victories more than worth the late-night conversations, recordings, and everything else in between.

More often than not, our first reaction to a crisis is to run to the world for a solution or “quick fix”, because we are already functioning in a worldly mindset on a daily basis. However, this is a bigger issue than we think it is. Our choices are evidence of whom we ultimately trust.

But how are Christians supposed to view themselves and overcome their struggles when it comes to physical appearance and people's opinions? Hit... Continue Reading →
THE ISSUE IS NOT SHOVING
I find it quite amusing that Christians are even accused of this, when truth be told, most Christians are so timid when it comes to sharing the Gospel, they are practically incapable of shoving it down anyone’s throat.

What does it mean to be desperate for God? Biblically, I believe it is something we are to strive towards, and it seems like there is a sense of desperation in the worship songs we sing at church on Sunday, but what does it look like in everyday life? Is it just a feeling you experience when everything in your life goes terribly wrong and you have no other “fix” or solution?

A TIME OF TRIAL
If Christians would just realize that everything happening to us right now is to make us more Christlike, we would indeed have the passion that our persecuted brothers and sisters do. The problem is, the American Church has little desire to be Christlike because we would rather continue on in our worldliness.
The Biblical Way To Deal With Offense – Episode 58
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-avzrn-101192b How does God expect Christians to handle offense?
