I called my friend Jill recently to talk about prayer and I want you to join us. When Jill spoke at IF:Gathering a few years back, the internet almost broke, because she is a walking picture of faithfulness to God and never giving up over a lifetime. Why prayer? Because we can't start this process of looking at our emotions without being with Jesus. You will love hearing from her about courage and anxiety and Scripture and I know she'll encourage you today.

So many of us live stuck. Stuck in trying to seem perfect. Stuck in sadness. Stuck feeling numb. Stuck pursuing more stuff to make us happy. Stuck in something we can't even name. These stuck places often go unattended inside of us and they are shaping our lives more than we would like to think. We've been trying to fix this feeling with everything but... God. He has a plan for these spaces inside of us, the places we feel broken, but we have to go to Him. Season 2 of the Made for This Podcast is here! And we’re going to get UNSTUCK. Let’s talk about anger, discontentment, overwhelm, fear and sadness…. some of the places we all get stuck. There will be interviews and Scripture every week. Come on this journey with us to take an honest look at the fight going on inside that leads us to the God who can set us free!

Pressure produces some of the best work and the best creativity. It causes me to be intentional in my relationships and conversations. It forces me to depend on God because I can't accomplish what is required of me in a given day, week, or year without the power and strength of God entering in and helping me. Let's talk about 5 ways you can look differently at pressure in life and see it as a help rather than something to avoid at all cost.

One of the biggest barriers I think we all face in friendship is expressing our own needs. I struggle with this! A friend I love told me recently, “Jennie, I just don’t think you need me!” It couldn’t be farther from the truth, but she was right. I have a hard time telling my friends what’s going on in my life and what I need from them. We all just stay within our lines and wave politely at each other rather than getting into the everyday parts of each other’s lives. When I talk about these hard things on the show, just know I’m right there with you in this. I believe in us team!

Zac and I have fought hard for the marriage we have now. We've been married for 22 years and I can't imagine a more supportive spouse and we absolutely delight in cheering each other on.

What do you and your friends circle around? Do you find yourself coming home from hanging out with your friends feeling discouraged or encouraged? I think the answer to how we have life-giving relationships lies in what we talk about, what we circle around.

How do I make friends? This is a question we all ask no matter our age or stage of life. Join me as I talk about the biggest problem we face as we try to make friends. The Apostle Paul, the author of the letter to the Philippian church, knew this and knew friendship and community were not about him, it was about others and about living on mission. Let’s look at the book of Philippians together to see what happens when God is at the center of our relationships. Let’s also address the elephant in the room… co-dependency. How do we know if we’re in a co-dependent relationship and what do we do about it? We’re going there in episode 1… join us!
