With the outbreak of the COVID 19 pandemic - or anything else unexpected you may be going through - do you find yourself overthinking? Or imagining all of the kinds of scenarios in your brain? In a world of unknowns, we may ask - What is it? Join us for this episode where we discuss how we overthink, why we overthink, and how God takes notices of us when we do.
Have you ever taken notice of the homeless? Would you ever consider getting to know them? Listen to this special episode where I talk with Judy Allen, a college English teacher, and playwright. You’ll hear how a story project she started in one of her classes helped students notice the misconceptions surrounding homelessness and led her to write her play: I HAVE A NAME. Hear how God interweaved the stories her students wrote, the relationships that developed, and how we may overcome the images we have of the homeless. You won’t want to miss this incredible story of how God notices the homeless.
Is there something going on in your life you can't talk about but wish you could? Do you find yourself having a strong need to vent? What is the best way to process everything we experience? Listen to this episode where we explore the differences between venting and lamenting and how God takes notice of us in the struggle.
What is it about capturing a story on film? Have you wondered how films are produced or how someone becomes a filmmaker?

Have you wished you could have a spiritual mentor to encourage your faith? Listen as we talk with Lisa Lempke, a ministry leader with the Northwest Michigan Jesus Ministry. We discuss how important it can be to your spiritual growth to have someone you meet with regularly, how God provides that person, and how we can potentially be that person for others. You won't want to miss hearing how God notices us through discipleship.
With the new year and new decade, you've probably set some goals. So how are you doing at following through? Do you find yourself distracted? Discouraged? Just what does it mean to be disciplined anyway? Listen to this episode where we talk about goals, distractions, discouragements, and just what it means to take notice of God in self-discipline.
What is it about those Christmas traditions? Or those holiday movies? Do fulfilling traditions give us warm fuzzy feels or satisfy some kind of longing?
