I’m with the legendary Gary Thomas to talk about his new book "When To Walk Away". We'll explore toxic relationships, how we can recognize them, and examine how Jesus set boundaries in his own life.  This message from Gary is life-changing, and if you struggle with a toxic relationship in your life, he will equip you with tools to break free in a healthy, biblical way.    In this episode we discuss: 1. The difference between a difficult relationship and a toxic one. 2. Playing spiritual offense vs spiritual defense  3. Why it's so important to break free from toxic cycles   Favorite quotes: 1. If somebody is trying to get you to stop being you or get you to stop doing what you are convinced God wants you to do- for you that person is toxic. It’s an attack on your being and an attack on your mission. 2. Jesus had such a freedom to walk away and it wasn’t about failing or succeeding it was about the person just not receiving. 3. I walk away from toxic people not to go binge Netflix. I walk away to invest with reliable people. I walk away from toxic relationships into healthy relationships.    In this episode I answer these questions: 1. How can I motivate myself to make changes in my life? (43:45) 2. What’s your perspective on the best way to evangelize? (48:36 ) 3. What’s the best advice you can give a woman with a dream (54:32 )   Great things we discussed:  1. Gary Thomas  2. When To Walk Away 3. Kari Jobe: Steady My Heart 4. A Practical Treatise Upon Christian Perfection 5. Strava app 6. Peanut Butter Falcon 7. Michael W. Smith: Waymaker 8.

Get ready to laugh today! No one brings the belly laughs like my friend Sophie Hudson  and today we cover a lot of ground; her trip to Kenya, her book writing process, and how monkeys with spicy pistachios sparked her last book idea.  Sophie shares what her latest book meant to her as an Enneagram 9- trying to stand up more in life. We also explore how she felt like a late bloomer in the publishing world and why she's glad she didn't release her first book until she was in her 50s.  We also chat about: -Why woman need to prioritize the creative process on their to-do lists -The products that make us feel like old women, but are FABULOUS -The hilarious reason she was drooling during our call and the facial problem her jade roller couldn't fix   We even discuss what investment you need in the bedroom. (Just wait for it!)    Favorite quotes: 1. Initially, we may have things that we want to burn it down but really what we want is some fresh fire to help however we’re meant to help usher in the kingdom 2. I think that’s something else that’s hard for women is to be kind to ourselves because you really can’t do everything. You really can’t, not all at one time. Something is always going to get the short end of the stick.   For coaching time, I’m answering this question-  How do you keep your email from getting overwhelming?

You can't break a woman who draws her strength from God.  What does it mean to stand strong in the middle of pandemics and parenting? What does it look like to be a mighty woman of God- when the world sometimes feels like it is crumbling around us? How do we keep from putting our dreams and callings on a shelf when we feel like we are simply surviving?   Join me for an intimate and special episode of the podcast today- as I share the first chapter from my upcoming book Standing Strong: A Woman's Guide to Overcoming Adversity and Living with Confidence.   If you feel like God is calling you to something new, and maybe you don't even know what it is yet, or you don't know where to start- this one's for you!

I'm joined today by the inspiring David Platt who has helped millions through his book Radical- to look beyond the American Dream and be sold out to a life of obedience to God instead.  David dives even deeper today and talks about a trip to the Himalayas that wrecked his own faith and worldview, and has him surrendering more than ever. David shares how a season of questioning had him take bold moves in work and life- and shaped his new book Something Has To Change.   We also talk about: -What God is teaching him as a pastor during a global pandemic. -Why this book is more honest and raw than any of his others. -Why radical obedience doesn't always look the way we think.   Favorite quotes: 1. In the end, God’s goodness guarantees that His justice will reign, His mercy will reign, that all who look to Him and trust in him will experience an eternity where there's no more sorrow, and no more tears, and no more suffering, and no more injustice. 2. The more we come face to face with need, the more the gospel becomes so precious and so valuable. 3. Don’t underestimate the part God is calling you to in the spread of his glory in the world. 4. If we can trust God to save us from eternity, certainly we can trust him with the next few years of our lives and to lead us and guide us.    In this episode I answer these questions and life and business- 1. How do you deal with writing about family issues and struggles in your books? (39:08) 2. I’m a creative entrepreneur and I hate systems. So far it hasn't hurt my growth. Do I have to build systems or can I stay successful without them? (46:00)   Links to great things we discussed: 1. David Platt 2. Something Needs To Change 3. Psalm 23 4. The Voice 5. Knowing God 6. The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment 7. Captain Phillips  Hope you loved this episode! Be sure to subscribe in iTunes and slap some stars on a review! :) xo, Alli
