Brave Beauty

What will my life be like? Who will I be?

Whether girls put these concerns into words or struggle anxiously with these thoughts, during this season of change, girls have questions. Sometimes these questions also come with fears and they need a safe place to process these fears. From Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker and blogger, Lynn Cowell, comes Faithgirlz Brave Beauty: Finding the Fearless You.For girls 8-12, Brave Beauty brings tweens 100 courage-building moments to reflect on Scripture and find confidence in God, rather than in someone, some place, or some thing, as culture will all-too-soon tell them to.

According to author Lynn Cowell, 7 out of 10 girls feel like they don’t measure up. How can we build our daughters up from the inside out so they don’t let comparison rule their lives?

Join us as our host, Kathi Lipp, interviews Author Lynn Cowell to discuss her new book, Brave Beauty and learn how to root out fear in our children’s lives and teach our girls to rely on the power of the Holy Spirit rather than their own strength.


Lynn has given us 3 copies of Brave Beauty to share with our listeners! What area of bravery would you like to see your 8-12 year old grow in? Leave a comment to this question and be entered to receive a free copy of Brave Beauty!

Life is noisy. What would happen if every day – for the next 40 days – you soaked in God’s love as He intimately whispered words of rest just for you?

Kathi talks with Bonnie Gray, author of Whispers of Rest: 40 Days of God’s Love to Revitalize Your Soul .  Kathi and Bonnie discuss why it’s difficult for women to carve out time to take care of themselves. From our deep rooted need to take care of everyone else first.  Even after everyone else is cared for we resist and hold back from caring for ourselves.  We have a sense of guilt about taking care of our own needs.

Bonnie gives us some great suggestions on how to inject pockets time into your life to spend with God and beautiful things in your life.

Book Giveaway

Bonnie is giving away two books to our listeners.   Just leave a comment within the next 7 days and tell us how you are going to inject a pocket of rest into your day.

Two listeners will be selected at random to receive a copy of Whispers of Rest.

Book Giveaway only available for our US listeners.

Episode #238 – Restoration, Simplicity and Joy

Clear out. Simplify. Take back your life.
When it comes to dealing with your “stuff”, peace is possible.
Kathi Lipp is back with a comprehensive, yet simple guide that will solve the constant issue of clutter. Free yourself once and for all!

  • Do any of these describe you?
  • You bought a box of cereal at the store, and then discovered you have several boxes at home that are already past the “best by” date.
  • You bought a book and put it on your nightstand (right on top of ten others you’ve bought recently), but you have yet to open it.
  • You spend valuable time moving your piles around the house, but you can never find that piece of paper when you need it.
  • Your house makes you depressed the moment you step into it.
    If you said yes, Clutter Free is for you!



Kathi is joined by friend of the program, Erin MacPherson. They discuss their plans for 2017 and how they are focused on the ideas of restoration, simplicity, and joy. Kathi is on a journey of restoration this year and part of that is focusing on a different spiritual discipline each month. She discusses her decision for the year and explains how she is hoping these changes add more joy to her life and restoration to her home and soul.


Erin’s pups!
