Fairy Tales and Other Realities

Fairy Tales and Other Realities
“Once upon a time in a faraway land…” is the language of fairy tales, and through them, a longing in the heart can well up. In this episode, Stasi shares that we identify with these stories because they speak to both our story and our identity—our longing to be pursued, fought for, and loved, and the truth that we are more than meets the eye. God’s promise is the promise of restoration, and in him, we can both discover and be restored to who we are truly meant to be. There is transformative power in understanding one's true self in the heart of God, allowing his voice to be the ultimate authority in defining our identity.…..SHOW NOTES:…..VERSES: Luke 19:10 (NLT) — For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.Matthew 3:16-17 (NLT) —  After his baptism, as Jesus came up out of the water, the heavens were opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and settling on him.

For with God nothing will be impossible.”Matthew 19:25-26 (NLT) — The disciples were astounded. “Then who in the world can be saved?” they asked.

On today’s podcast, Stasi shares the amazing depth of God’s love for each of us individually. As the great Romancer of our hearts, he uniquely pursues us as his beloved. Did you know that we can romance his heart as well? What does that look like? Friends, he loved us first, and we romance him as we love him back. Let’s unpack that a little together and sink more deeply into his extravagant love—and then, let’s romance his heart with our loving gaze.

Stasi welcomes back writer, speaker, wife, and mother Sara Hagerty to discuss her new book, The Gift of Limitations. Sara writes, “What if your greatest weaknesses, the areas of your life you resent the most…are your doorway to rich intimacy with God? What if your limitations were, in fact, your greatest gift?” With vulnerability and wisdom, Sara encourages us to name the limitations we face, so we can both grieve them and surrender them to God.

The Lord will surely comfort Zion and will look with compassion on all her ruins;he will make her deserts like Eden, her wastelands like the garden of the Lord. Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and the sound of singing.Colossians 1:15-17 (NLT) — Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see — such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him. He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together.John 1:1-4 (NLT) — In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone.…..ALLEN ARNOLDWebsite: https://withallen.comTwitter: @thestoryofwithALLEN ARNOLD BIOAllen Arnold is an author, speaker, and Executive Producer of Content for Wild at Heart—the worldwide ministry founded by New York Times bestselling author John Eldredge.

She came to Jesus and said, “Lord, doesn’t it seem unfair to you that my sister just sits here while I do all the work? Tell her to come and help me.”But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.”1 Corinthians 13:12 (NIV) — For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face.

The Season of Advent
Dec 13 2023
The Season of Advent
In today’s podcast, we delve into the meaning and history of Advent, a season of hope, expectation, and waiting. Stasi shares stories from her own family traditions, showing us that Advent means so much more than a countdown to Christmas. It is a time to reflect on faith, hope, joy, and peace. It is a time to remember how Christ came and all that he has done for us—while looking forward with great anticipation to the promise that he will come again and make all things new.…..SHOW NOTES:…..VERSES: Nehemiah 8:10 (NIV) — Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”Isaiah 7:14 (NIV) — Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.Matthew 2:1 (NIV) — Incarnation: After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to JerusalemJohn 1:29–31 (NIV) — Baptism: The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! …John 2:1–10 (NIV) — Jesus’ first miracle: …On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, …Acts 2:17 (NIV) — In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.Hebrews 1:2 (NIV) — but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe.Isaiah 9:2–7 (NIV) — Week of HopeIsaiah 40:1–11 (NIV) — Week of FaithLuke 2:1–21 (NIV) — Week of Joy (the Christmas Story)John 2:13–14 (NIV) — Week of PeaceJohn 3:16 (NIV) — Love:  For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.John 1:17–18 (NIV) — For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.…..OTHER RESOURCES:Dietrich Bonhoeffer quote: “The Celebration of Advent is possible only to those who are troubled in soul, who know themselves to be poor and imperfect, and who look forward ot something greater to come.”Matthew Kelly quote: “God of hope, I look to you with an open heart and yearning spirit. During this Advent season, I will keep alert and awake, listening for your word and keeping to your precepts. My hope is in you.”Karl Barth quote: “Unfulfilled and fulfilled promise are related to each other, as are dawn and sunrise…then it is precisely in the light of the coming of Christ that faith has become Advent faith, the expectation of future revelation. But faith knows for whom and for what it is waiting. It is fulfilled faith because it lays hold on the fulfilled promise.” Renee Swope from Proverbs 31 Ministries Poem: The Manger of My Hearthttps://reneeswope.com/christmas-prayer/…..Don’t Miss Out on the Next Episode – Subscribe for FreeSubscribe using your favorite podcast app:Spotify Podcasts – https://spoti.fi/42SsOipApple Podcasts – https://apple.co/42E0oZ1 Google Podcasts – http://wahe.art/3M81kxLAmazon Music & Audible – https://amzn.to/3M9u6hJ
Loyal Love
Nov 29 2023
Loyal Love
Join Stasi as she unpacks the book of Ruth, highlighting Naomi as well as the treasured characteristic of God's hesed. Stories like Naomi’s help us be honest with God about our own lament. Even in our deepest suffering, we are always seen, loved, and held, and our faithful God promises that He will never turn His face away. In fact, we can trust that even when we don’t see or understand, our God is always working on our behalf. He invites us to trust Him and to rest in His loyal love for us no matter how our story seems to be unfolding. Jesus is the great Hero of every story, including our own, and we can trust that our story has a very good ending.…..SHOW NOTES:…..VERSES: Ruth 1:13 (NIV) — “…It is more bitter for me than for you, because the Lord’s hand has turned against me!”Ruth 1:8 (NIV) — Then Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, “Go back, each of you, to your mother’s home. May the Lord show you kindness, as you have shown kindness to your dead husbands and to me. Ruth 1:16 (NIV) — But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Hebrews 13:5 (NIV) — …because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”Romans 8:28 (NIV) — And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.…..OTHER RESOURCES:Finding God in the Margins: The Book of Ruth by Carolyn Custis James  https://amzn.to/44JKKf5…..Don’t Miss Out on the Next Episode – Subscribe for FreeSubscribe using your favorite podcast app:Spotify Podcasts – https://spoti.fi/42SsOipApple Podcasts – https://apple.co/42E0oZ1 Google Podcasts – http://wahe.art/3M81kxLAmazon Music & Audible – https://amzn.to/3M9u6hJ

The Paradise King with Blaine Eldredge
Stasi invites her son, author, and teacher, Blaine Eldredge, onto today’s podcast to talk about his new book The Paradise King. Blaine first shares a few stories of how he became a committed, passionate and “in process” follower of Jesus, and how his life’s journey led him to write this book. The Paradise King is a product of Blaine’s curiosity and quest to recover the story of God in the Bible, as well as his longing to share it with others in a relatable and historical narrative. Blaine reads an excerpt from his book, which transports us into a beautiful experience of the heart of Jesus.…..SHOW NOTES:…..VERSES: Psalm 46:5-7 (NIV) — God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.

Redemptively Known with Lisa Harper
Nov 1 2023
Redemptively Known with Lisa Harper
Stasi is delighted to have Lisa Harper—speaker, author, scholar, and passionate follower of Jesus—on today’s podcast. With humor and honesty, Lisa shares her journey with Christ and the gracious unfolding of learning to be delighted in by God. God is a “with” God; he loves us so much that he chooses to be close to us no matter where we find ourselves and invites us to lean into him with confidence that we will be held and adored by the King of kings. We are divinely wired to be in intimate relationship with the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. The enemy has tried to separate us from that union from the beginning, but God’s story is all about bringing us back to his heart through the redemption that has already been woven in.…..SHOW NOTES:…..VERSES: Psalm 34:4-5 (NIV) — I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears. Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces.Song of Song 4:9 (NIV) — You have captured my heart, my treasure, my bride. You hold it hostage with one glance of your eyes, with a single jewel of your necklace.Hosea 2:9 (NIV) — “But now I will take back the ripened grain and new wine I generously provided each harvest season. I will take away the wool and linen clothing I gave her to cover her nakedness.LISA HARPERWebsite: https://www.lisaharper.org/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lisadharper/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/OfficialLisaDHarper/Podcast: https://www.lisaharper.org/backporchtheologyLISA HARPER BIOLisa Harper is an engaging, hilarious communicator as well as an authentic and substantive Bible teacher that many enjoy hearing in person, or on countless TV and radio platforms.

Come Out with Nancy Carmichael
Oct 18 2023
Come Out with Nancy Carmichael
Stasi welcomes Nancy Carmichael back for an engaging conversation on the power of Christ in us. Through the pressures of life and outward circumstances, Nancy noticed herself shrinking back and losing focus on God’s deeper truths. God began to strip things away, bringing Nancy to a very vulnerable place, and it was there that she saw Christ in her. Friends, Christ dwells in us and remains with us. And we desperately need his life to infuse ours, to pour out of us, so that we can live the lives we were meant to live. Hiding is a form of self-protection, and Jesus is asking each of us to Come Out.…..SHOW NOTES:…..VERSES: Hebrews 13:5 (NIV) — …because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”Galatians 2:20 (NIV) — I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. …John 6:68 (NIV) — Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.NANCY CARMICHAELInstagram: https://wahe.art/3LcrGiwWebsite: https://isleofmisfits.com/Podcast: https://wahe.art/3PaoCVzBlog: https://isleofmisfits.com/blog/Song: Come Out written by Nancy Carmichael – https://wahe.art/3Z8HcloNANCY CARMICHAEL BIO:Nancy Carmichael is the Proprietor and Chief Misfit of the IsleofMisfits.com, a blogging and podcasting Oasis for self-proclaimed square pegs, far and wide. Through it, she hopes to build a community of people who own their awkward, love their fellow misfit and embrace beauty and truth in the weirdness of life. Aside from this, one of her main claims to fame is being merely 1 degree separated from Kevin Bacon, thanks to a friend who once played a stand-in for his leading lady in the 80’s classic “She’s Having a Baby”. As if it could get any better, Nancy is married to a man so good it took EHarmony to help her find him, and a daughter she will obnoxiously brag about if given even half a chance. She has spent her life communicating good news wherever in the world the door opens, through writing, singing, speaking, coaching, counseling and advocating for those whom society often overlooks.…..OTHER RESOURCES:Nancy’s previous Captivated episode: Owning Your Awkward   https://wahe.art/3PvjQD7Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman's Soul by John and Stasi Eldredge   https://wahe.art/3L9tLMc…..Don’t Miss Out on the Next Episode – Subscribe for FreeSubscribe using your favorite podcast app:Spotify Podcasts – https://spoti.fi/42SsOipApple Podcasts – https://apple.co/42E0oZ1 Google Podcasts – http://wahe.art/3M81kxLAmazon Music & Audible – https://amzn.to/3M9u6hJ
Being Forged

Being Forged
Stasi welcomes Karen Christakis and Stacey Burton of the Wild at Heart team into the studio for a candid conversation that quickly leads to how intentionally God is moving on our behalf—even when we aren’t able to see it. What matters most to Jesus is always our hearts, even more than rescuing us from the hard things we plead with him to change. As you listen to this podcast, you will hear the importance of stepping back to honor our stories in order to recognize the ways God is pursuing us and forging us into His very image of love.…..SHOW NOTES:…..VERSES: James 1:2 (NKJV) — My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, Romans 5:3-5 (MSG) — There’s more to come: We continue to shout our praise even when we’re hemmed in with troubles, because we know how troubles can develop passionate patience in us, and how that patience in turn forges the tempered steel of virtue, keeping us alert for whatever God will do next. In alert expectancy such as this, we’re never left feeling shortchanged. Isaiah 43:2 (NLV) — When you pass through the waters, I will be with you. When you pass through the rivers, they will not flow over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned. The fire will not destroy you.…..OTHER RESOURCES:Surrender – Captivated Podcast posted September 20, 2023   https://wahe.art/3RI9HovThe Story of With: A Better Way to Live, Love, & Create by Allen Arnold  https://amzn.to/3LtNypXJohn Marc Comer – Apprentice of Jesus (various books)…..Don’t Miss Out on the Next Episode – Subscribe for FreeSubscribe using your favorite podcast app:Spotify Podcasts – https://spoti.fi/42SsOipApple Podcasts – https://apple.co/42E0oZ1 Google Podcasts – http://wahe.art/3M81kxLAmazon Music & Audible – https://amzn.to/3M9u6hJ
Surrender
Sep 20 2023
Surrender
"Surrender," in Hebrew, means "to align or arrange oneself under the command of a divine viewpoint." You literally turn away from the offerings of the world, the opinions of others, and your own strategies for achieving life and instead choose to stand under God’s divine viewpoint. When we cling to other things, believing they will satisfy our souls, we put something between us and God—actually, we put something in front of Him. They may be good things, but when they become highest in our hearts, we get into trouble; we’ve stepped away from our first love, maybe without even noticing. In today’s podcast, Stasi shares that the surrendered life is a doorway into a deeper life with God, then closes with a beautiful and powerful encounter with Jesus through which we experience the fruit of surrender: resting in our God’s unconditional love.…..SHOW NOTES:…..VERSES: Psalm 100:3 (NIV) — Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.Isaiah 40:11 (NIV) — He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.Mark 6:34 (NIV) — When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things.Ezekiel 34:31 (NIV) — You are my sheep, the sheep of my pasture, and I am your God, declares the Sovereign Lord.’”Revelation 7:17 (NIV) — For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; ‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’ ‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’”Hebrews 13:5 (NIV) — Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”Psalm 23:1-3 (NIV) — The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.Matthew 11:28 (NIV) — Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.Hebrews 13:20-21 (NIV) — Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever.

Healing Through Story with Becky Allender

If this feels new to you, Becky also offers a simple place to start. Friends, each of us desires to be seen and known, and giving a voice to our story is a beautiful level of self-care that expands our hearts for Jesus to come and compassionately give us more freedom through healing.…..SHOW NOTES:…..VERSES: Psalm 139:17-18 (NLV) — Your thoughts are of great worth to me, O God. How many there are! If I could number them, there would be more than the sand.
