Abundant Life: You Were Made for More Podcast

John 10:10 is a promise fulfilled.  Jesus came down to Earth so that we would have life – and have it abundantly!

We pray that every Church would have:

• Teenagers knowing and believing who they were created to be – because our identity changes everything!

• Youth groups that discuss issues such as sexuality and relationships with teens.

• Parents equipped to create safe spaces for teens to wrestle with the differences between our culture & our faith.

• Students who have been set free by the power of the Gospel and understand how the Good News equips us to fully live out our earthly relationships.

So, buckle up as we take this journey and  look at what God has to say about friendships, relationships, sexuality, dating, and ALL the things in between.

We are so glad you’re here!

Episode 20: What Happens When The Party's Over? (A Study of Job's Life)
In this episode, Sammie tackles the story of Job's life in the second part of our abundance series. If you missed the first episode, go ahead and listen to episode 19 before you hit play on this one! In that episode, Sammie's husband, Juan dives into an analogy of life being God's party - one where we're all invited, everything we could ever need or want is there, and God is the generous host. He talks about what abundance really means in the here and now, and it sets this week's episode up really well.
If you've ever felt like your life is the furthest thing from a party, this episode is for you. We all go through seasons where life seems to be throwing us all sorts of curve balls, we feel tested, and we're not really sure what's going on. Sammie takes the time to tackle an important question: when life doesn't feel like the party, does that mean that the Giver (God), isn't good and doesn't love us anymore?

Episode 16: For All The Ladies - Embracing Biblical Femininity (with Chaney Mullins)

In this episode, Sammie talks with Chaney Mullins about lots of topics: sexuality and marriage, femininity, women’s healthcare, and the value, or sanctity, of human life. Chaney serves as Development Coordinator for Divine Mercy Care, an educational and fundraising organization advancing pro-life health care. There, she works to promote the next frontier in the pro-life movement: inspiring pro-life OB/GYNs and building full medical centers that serve all women with good Christian health care – those with insurance and those without. She is a champion for deeper partnerships between local churches and women in need. Chaney also serves on the board of the Healing Center International, which is dedicated to helping people find more joy in their relationships with God and others. Additionally, Chaney is the co-founder of The Amore Project, which empowers deeper communities through viewing Christ as the intimate lover of our whole selves – body and soul. She’s also a special projects writer at Concerned Women of America.

Grab your coffee, turn up the volume, and hang out with us! I hope this episode inspires you to think... "Am I truly pursuing the woman God made me to be?"
