EP. 27: Taste And See (with Margaret Feinberg)
Show Summary: God could have designed humans to eat rocks, but instead He created food and gave men and women thousands of taste buds to enjoy it. On this episode of “God Hears Her,” Margaret Feinberg joins the show to talk food, which is really a discussion into the deepest longings of a woman’s heart, and God’s invitation to taste and see that He is good. About Our Guest: Margaret Feinberg is a podcaster on The Joycast, a speaker, and an author of several books that have sold over a million copies. She was recently named one of Christianity Today’s top 50 women shaping culture and the church. She lives in Utah with her husband, Leif, and their super-pup Hershey. Her recent book is Taste and See: Discovering God Among Butchers, Bakers and Fresh Food Markets. Notes and Quotes: * "Food is God’s love made edible." * "God creates the garden with a plethora of food and then gives us thousands of taste buds to enjoy it." * "What we really ache for is to know and be known, to love and be loved, and to enter a place where we can be vulnerable and any sense of shame scurries away." * "Communities are little mirrors that reflect ourselves back to us." * "There are times when I need, through prayer and Scripture, to hear God’s love for me. And there are other times, for that to really take root, I need to hear it through other humans who are reflecting His glory and His presence." * "Social media is a dangerous game because it begins to feel like 'life.' But when words come from a person, in person, they are more meaningful and life-changing." * "If you want to have community, you have to build it, often out of nothing." * "If we want to be seen, we may have to open our eyes and see first. If we want to be heard, we have to become people who are really great listeners." * "The deepest hungers of your heart are uniquely designed to be met first and foremost by God. Jesus really is the One who can speak the syllables you most need to hear." * "Reach out to meet others’ needs; and as you love them and bring joy to them, you’ll find some of your needs met too." * "Choose good people: life-giving, Jesus-loving, makes-you-laugh-until-tears-run-down- your-cheeks-and-other-places kind of people."

Supporting and Celebrating Other Women
One of the most important things women can do is support other women. This, of course, is something that should happen automatically, but sadly, support from some women can sometimes be nonexistent. I mean, there is no doubt that none of us will ever be able to directly support every single woman alive, but what we _can_ do is celebrate _all_ women in our hearts—whether we know them personally or not. In today’s episode I ask you the following questions: Are you your sister’s keeper? Are you happy about the success of other women? Or does another woman’s success cause you to struggle with feelings of anxiety or jealousy? Is it hard for you to compliment or congratulate another woman? I also discuss the true essence of sisterhood, and I share three things you can do to help you become even more supportive than you already are. About Kimberla: Kimberla is a Christian woman, wife, bonus mom, speaker, and _New York Times_ bestselling author of 28 books, including _THE WOMAN GOD CREATED YOU TO BE: Finding Success Through Faith—Spiritually, Personally, and Professionally_, which is the companion book for this podcast. Kimberla has sold nearly 3 million copies of her books, and they have frequented numerous bestseller lists, such as _The New York Times_, _USA Today_, _The Washington Post_, _Publishers Weekly_, Essence magazine, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and many others. She is the recipient of the 2013 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work – Fiction and the 2017 SOAR Radio Trailblazer of Honor award, and in August 2020, she was named by _USA Today_ as one of the 100 black novelists you should read. Over the years, Kimberla has spoken to thousands of women at churches, conferences, luncheons, libraries, colleges, and universities where she candidly shares her personal journey—hoping to help women become all that God created them to be. Kimberla resides in Illinois with her husband, Will. To be notified about each new episode of this podcast, please subscribe or follow it through your favorite podcast app or website.

Episode 12: Prayers That Will Drastically Change Your Life
We've been on such a fruitful journey on this podcast. We've learned that prayer is the way we communicate with the Maker of the Universe, and He not only hears us, but He also responds. We've learned that through prayer, we access healing, wisdom, discernment, peace, protection, joy, and so much power we could never experience on our own. On our last podcast in this series, we share specific prayers that can drastically change your life. We also close out this series by praying together over these areas so that you can start experiencing the benefit of prayer today. Key Takeaways: • If changing our thoughts from negative to positive can turn our day from good to bad, they also have to power to direct the course of our lives. • Our Heavenly Father is ready and willing to guide and direct our steps and provide us with His wisdom and discernment to make the right decisions. • Even when we are weary and weak, the Lord is willing and ready to grant us His strength to surrender to the things we think I can't do or be.
