Ep 55 | What does it mean to accept GOD? (Session 18)
Accepting Jesus comes with more than just knowing and recognizing who God is. In this podcast on the first principle of discipleship, Emily and Jeremy talk about what it truly means to accept Jesus into your life. They share why it is more than knowledge of who He is and why we should be willing to take that first step.

Ep 54 | What is Discipleship? (Session 17)
Is the word discipleship intimidating to you? Have you considered it but felt unqualified? Do you think you have to be perfect to disciple others? Our culture tends to make discipleship feel out of reach. We think it's for only those who have their walk with the Lord down perfect. In this intro to discipleship, Jeremy and Emily talk about why discipleship is for everyone. They break it down to the simplest form and give a solid definition.

Ep 53 | Are You Creating the Right Space? (Session 15)
Have you been able to hear the Holy Spirit speaking to you? If not, have you heard Him before? Is something different now? Many of us have experienced the Holy Spirit at one time or another. We've heard Him speaking to us, but other times we don't. In this podcast Jeremy and Emily share about some reasons why we may not be hearing Him speak. They also share about the greatest benefit of knowing the Holy Spirit as well as how to hear his calling for YOU!

Ep 51 | This is the #1 key to walking out your Christian Faith! (Session 13)
We are given the Holy Spirit to empower our Christian lives. However, we live in a day and age when it seems very few Christians are living with much power. Why is this? Is the Holy Spirit just not working as he did in the past? In today's podcast, we discuss some of the barriers we have built that hinder our ability to walk with the Holy Spirit fully. Listen in to see if you have created any of these barriers and if so how to remove them.

Ep 50 | Are you a Thermometer or a Thermostat? (Session 11)
What makes up your being? Is it just your body? Do you have a spirit? A soul? If we have all three how do they interact? God designed us with three parts: Spirit, Soul, and Body. Each has influence on ourselves and the world around us. Listen in today as we talk about each part's importance. We share on how the spirit and body can influence the soul, which in turn influences how we act.

Ep 49 | The Work of the Cross Explained (session 10)

Ep 48 | Do You Know the Three Ways the Blood Works? (Session 9)

In today's podcast Jeremy and Emily will discuss the Blood of Christ. A topic that can often be hard to apply practically to our everyday lives.

Ep 47 | Does Multiplication Matter in the Life of a Christian? (Session 8)
As a Christian are you called to multiply your faith? Isn't that the job of a pastor or paid minister? Would God really expect normal, ordinary people to do this? How did the church in Acts multiply so quickly? Is multiplication all about numbers? What about discipleship? Have you ever discipled anyone? In today's podcast, we explore and discuss many of these questions. We talk through some practical ways we can walk multiplication out in our spiritual lives through discipleship. We talk about fears that may hold us back, as well as practical ways to accept the high challenge calling left to us by Jesus. Discover why multiplication is more than just numbers and how, despite your thoughts, YOU are qualified to disciple others.

Have you spent time learning about Jesus, reading and studying the Word of God, going to Bible Studies and groups? For many of us, the answer is yes. However is this the same as growing in intimacy with our Lord and Savior? Does this topic of intimacy feel abstract and hard to understand?

Ep 43 | Grown Adults Drinking from BOTTLES?! (Session 3)
