Soul-Care Reflections: Redo for the Win

As humans, we just don’t always get things right the first time. Sometimes, we need a redo. In today’s reflection episode, I share a real-life example from the journey of parenting a six-year old.

God himself was the designer of connected parenting. He knew that our muscle memory would take precedence over our cognitive memory and that we would need re-dos.

Join me for today’s episode as we take a pause and reflect upon the grace God has given us through second chances.

May you be encouraged on your journey with Jesus.

Soul-Care Reflections: A Meditation for the Weary

Are you weary? I know I am.

Today’s Scripture meditation, found in Isaiah 40, focuses on weariness and restoration. Actually, this chapter flips the script on weariness.

Join me for an 11 minute pause in your day to renew your soul.

May you be encouraged on your journey with Jesus.

Rebuild, Restore, Renew: A Conversation with Sharon Tedford

What a joy it is to share this conversation with you, friends! Today’s podcast guest, Sharon Tedford, is an absolute delight. (And so is her British accent!) She is a worship leader, author, artist, and podcast host. It was so fun to talk with Sharon about her award-winning podcast, God in the Ordinary, and her journey into the podcasting world.

Sharon has the gift of encouragement, and I have no doubt you will come away from this podcast feeling refreshed. During our conversation she shares how the Lord led her family from living in the U.K. across the Atlantic to starting a life in Texas. As Sharon says, change does not come easily for her, but through such a dramatic move the Lord began a work in her that continues to this day. She also shares how the Lord has used Isaiah 61 in her life and her ministry, which she aptly named 61 Things.

If you’d like to learn more about Sharon and check out her music, writing, and podcast, please visit her website: 61-things.com. As discussed in the podcast, Sharon is kindly offering listeners of the Pause Renew Next Podcast a free copy of one of her watercolour paintings which you can find on her website. The passcode to receive your free copy is: podcast.

God’s Image Carved in Ebony: A Biography of Amanda Berry Smith

If you’ve listened to this podcast long, you know that I love a good biography. I am passionate about learning from saints who can teach us how to run and finish the race of faith well. Today’s biography episode is about just such a heroine of the faith: Amanda Berry Smith. Amanda played so many roles in her lifetime: mother, evangelist, preacher, missionary, and advocate. The newspapers of her day called her, “God’s Image Carved in Ebony.” If you have never heard her story, then I can’t wait to introduce you in this podcast episode.

Most of the information used in this podcast episode was taken directly from Amanda Smith’s biography: An Autobiography. The Story of the Lord’s Dealings with Mrs. Amanda Smith the Colored Evangelist.

However, I also gained information about her life from the following resources. If you’d like to learn more about her, I hope you’ll take the time to research her life for yourself! There are so many great resources out there; this is just a start.
