Today's episode features fashion and lifestyle blogger Carolyn Arentson. We chat about fashion and faith and what we can expect to see this spring! She also talks about her favorite places to shop, how to build a wardrobe for you, and what should be your basic wardrobe staples.

My prayer as you listen is that you will feel free to embrace your own sense of fashion – your style that reflects your Creator and who He uniquely designed you to be.

Today's episode features Tilly Dillehay, author of Seeing Green: Don't Let Envy Color Your Joy, and today Tilly offers some very insightful wisdom when it comes to being envious of others. My prayer as you listen is that you will be able to identify what exactly you are envying in another woman so that you can confess it before the father and instead of feeling steeped in envy, move toward a relationship filled with praise – both for that woman and for God who crated her.

Heart Lesson: The fulness that Christ provides is exactly what my heart desires.

This week we hear from Rachel Lawrence, host of the Unaltered Grace Podcast. Rachel shares her story of coming to Christ and what it means to become more and more like Christ each day. We also talk about the foundations of the gospel and why it’s worth living your life for Jesus.

My prayer as you listen is that you will understand the unaltered grace of the gospel – that God’s love never changes – and that it is freely available to all hearts, those committed to Jesus and those just beginning to wonder what He is all about.

Today I am joined by Ruth Chou Simons -- the artist, author, and speaker you might better know as Gracelaced. Today we have a very frank, honest, and open discussion about the realities of marriage, both the difficult reality of #marriageissanctifying, and the truth that marriage is designed to be a reflection of God’s love for His church.

If you are not married, don’t tune out! This episode offers great encouragement that can really be applied to any relationship.

My prayer as you listen is that you will realize the depth of love and forgiveness you’ve been given through Jesus, and be compelled to extend that same love to others.

Today on Heart Lessons, singer-songwriter Caroline Cobb shares her thoughts on why God’s great love for us compels us to worship with song. My prayer as you listen is that you will see how worshipping the Lord is both our response to His love for us and our expression of love to Him, as well as a reflection of the song God sings over us as His beloved.

CEO of Noonday Collection, Jessica Honegger, shares the truth that we don't have to have it all figured out before we step forward in faith to do big things for the Lord. We can leave behind our comfort and move forward despite our fears because we know the God who holds us, the God who calls us, and the God who uses imperfect people like us to accomplish big things for His kingdom.

She shares how the pain of her divorce caused her to become more real with others, and develop a more authentic relationship with Jesus. Plus we talk about a line from her album, Every Mile Mattered, that reads, "And you cannot imagine all the places you'll see Jesus, but you'll find Him everywhere you thought He wasn't supposed to go."
