Why is submission so scary?

The S word – it scares us doesn’t it? We’re talking about the word “Submit,” and for many women, being in submission sounds like a door to abuse.

What a comfort to know that submission doesn’t mean being abused, following a list of rules or being treated like a door mat, but it is an easy yoke that Jesus asks of all His followers. In this episode Amy and Michelle discuss why submission is mocked as a sign of weakness, but in fact is one of the strongest pillars of society.

It’s time for sound leaders to talk about abuse

Ever since the Me Too movement exploded on social media a couple of years ago, we’ve been hearing more and more heartbreaking stories of women who have experienced physical and sexual abuse. If anyone can help and should be helping victims of abuse, it ought to be the church. But, unfortunately, it seems that the people in the evangelical spotlight who are stepping up to advocate for victims are often popular false teachers.

Michelle and Amy talk about ministering to women who have experienced physical and sexual abuse.

Today Amy and Michelle tackle the tough subject of idolatry. Not only for us individually, but for churches, collectively.

Saved? How Kanye tell?

How can we tell whether or not someone is really saved? It  can be hard to tell with someone we don’t know, like a celebrity, but even with people we know personally – family members, friends, co-workers – is there really any way to know for sure? Michelle and Amy explore what the Bible says in light of true and false conversions, and why it matters.
