Tanya Godsey: Defeating fear, depression, and anxiety

tanya-godseyIn this episode, we talk with award-winning singer-songwriter Tanya Godsey, whose album, “Love Lines The Last Horizon,” brings us a hope-filled reminder that God’s love is strong enough to quench our fears and cover our failures, limitations and even our questions.

Tanya candidly discusses how, just as she was emerging from a long struggle with paralyzing fear, her family’s world was turned upside down by her husband’s sudden and unexpected battle with depression and anxiety. She shares her discovery that even when we are too broken and weak to reach for God, he is always reaching for us.

Jeremiah Carlson: Redeeming brokenness

20121201_acr_15965In this episode, we talk with Jeremiah Carlson of The Neverclaim worship band. Jeremiah has a marvelous story of God’s breaking chains and turning brokenness into beauty — and it finds powerful expression in the band’s music.

Jeremiah’s story makes it very clear that, while we all struggle with brokenness, none of us are defined by the past. As followers of Jesus, our mission is to walk with others as they learn who they are in Christ and learn how God can use them to bring redemption and healing into other lives too.

Chuck Lawless: The problem of porn

clawlessIn this episode, we talk with Chuck Lawless, a noted conference leader and author who is the dean of graduate studies and ministry centers at Southeastern Seminary in Wake Forest, NC.

As president of a church consulting firm and a seminary leader, Chuck constantly interacts with pastors and pastors in training. In those conversations, he hears too many stories about the horrible toll pornography addiction is taking on the lives of pastors and Christian men, their families and their churches.

Recent studies indicate about 1 in 4 smartphone owners store porn on their handset, and 67% of young men say viewing porn is an acceptable way to express one’s sexuality. Even worse, almost two-thirds of Christian men say they watch porn at least once a month.

Chuck has some excellent insight about how men can be set free from this addiction — or protected from falling into it in the first place.
