I’ve been a little quiet lately. I guess that’s what happens when those big beautiful and messy life moments come. If you are in one of those moments right now, I want you to know you are not alone.

If you listened to last week’s podcast interview with Jennie Allen, she shared how she stays dependent upon God inside a rapidly growing ministry that the world would probably call “success”. (Because we all know how tempting it can be to take too much credit for ourselves and start calling the shots on something God called us to and started Himself. If He started something, He plans to finish it. )“Stay connected to suffering.”

“Stay connected to suffering.”

Those words are so true. 

If you feel like you are in suffering right now, I am certain that today's podcast message, on this Good Friday, is timely and for you. Take a listen.

If you know me (Alisa) very well, you’ll know that I love women and men who are all about raising up disciples. When I read Jennie Allen’s book “Nothing to Prove,” it rocked me to see God use an ordinary woman, flaws and all, to disciple a generation. Her story with Jesus echoed in my heart because in so many ways that is my story too, and no doubt yours in some way. He’s asking us to follow Him wholeheartedly, but in a way that is so much more about being and abiding than doing and making things happen on our own. 

As it so happens, I took a risk after reading her book and asked Jennie Allen to come on the Revelation Wellness Podcast. She said yes, and I’m so glad she did, because what she has to say in this episode is going to bless your socks off. 

You may know Jennie as the founder of IF: Gathering and IF: Equip, and as an author, her latest book being “Nothing to Prove,” which obviously I highly recommend. But today I’m asking you to sit down, plug in, and listen in on a conversation between Jennie and me. 

You’ll hear Jennie talk about the story of the IF: Gathering, the beauty and transformational power of suffering, how she struggled with and found healing from an eating disorder, how loving anything more than God keeps us in bondage, and how the posture of abiding can keep us from the temptation of wanting to do things for God instead of loving Him.

I was so helped by what she had to say, and I hope you listen to our newest episode with Jennie and hear God’s heart for you. I hope you hear in Jennie a woman who longs to see God’s glory spread far and wide, and that her story encourages you to press into Him in honest and bold ways. 

It’s all good stuff, friends. Don’t miss it.

Today I invite you to go deeper into the pursuit for sexual purity. If you are a single woman following Jesus, you will want to hear this interview with my friend Jessica Vaughn. Jessica’s story of how Christ washed and called her clean is one that needs to be heard. She and I share similar “before Jesus became my Savior I was a hot mess” stories. I personally love and rejoice that she got her wake-up call to consecrate herself to God before she got married instead of getting the memo after marriage, like I did. Purity bings power, friends!

Whether you are currently single, plan to stay single, will be getting married or won’t be getting married, are just about to get married, or know someone who is fighting the battle to stay pure, this brand new podcast episode is for your listening hearts and ears.
