Episode #278 – Make Your Move: Finding Unshakable Confidence Despite Your Fears and Failures

Make Your Move: Finding Unshakable Confidence Despite Your Fears and Failures

In this six-session Bible study (DVD/digital video sold separately), author and Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker Lynn Cowell explores how confidence-in-question keeps us from boldly experiencing what God intends for our lives. Dive into six stories in the Bible of not-so-well-known women who found themselves needing confidence to make their move, and how they uncovered the faith to get it. Lynn encourages women to leave behind all the unnecessary insecurity this world induces and find confidence in God alone.

Learn from the Daughters of Zelophehad, the Women of Exodus, the Sisters of Bethany, Rahab, Debora, Abigail and Michal how to:

  • Intentionally build your confidence on the one thing that cannot be taken from you.
  • Recover from defeating decisions to move forward toward a strong self-worth.
  • Position yourself to not lose your poise—even in the worst circumstances.
  • Identify and address the fears that keep you stuck, with practical steps to walk in your calling with confidence.

This study is for any woman who’s ready to dig into God’s Word to find confidence and boldness to do great things. This book includes personal Bible study as well as group discussion questions. The study can be completed by individuals as well as in groups.

Designed for use with the companion Make Your Move Video Study (sold separately).

** This is a re-run of this episode because we wanted to share this now that Lynn’s book is actually available. It’s an episode full of rich truths we need to be reminded of. Enjoy!

Are you afraid to make a move? Do you feel held back? Sometimes we can be the greatest force of holding ourselves back in life. But we can learn how to find confidence when our minds have already defeated us.

Listen in as Kathi interviews Lynn Cowell and they discuss the concepts in her new book, Make Your Move ~ Finding Unshakable Confidence Despite Your Fears And Failures. Join in the conversation and be inspired to make your move from a place of paralyzing fear to an unshakable confidence in God’s promises.

**BONUS** Leave an answer in the comments section: “What would I be doing if I was not afraid?” and we will randomly pick three people in this next week to get a free copy of Lynn Cowell’s book.

Episode #276 A Spiritual Heritage

A Spiritual Heritage

To win a copy of “A Spiritual Heritage”, put in the comments of our show notes – what is it that you would like to start in your own family? Where are you going to develop a heritage in your family?

With three adult children, eleven grandkids, and over forty-five years in Christian education, Glen and Ellen Schuknecht are asked a lot of parenting questions. But the most common question is always “How do I raise my kids to love God and love family–even after they’ve left my nest?” The truth is that all the rules in the world will do nothing if parents don’t reach their kids’ hearts.

Through compelling, insightful stories from parents and grandparents who’ve been in the trenches, the Schuknechts demonstrate why that heart-level connection is so crucial in building long-lasting, connected relationships with a foundation of Christ. These stories are intertwined with ideas, tips, and biblical truths any parent can engage with, including a parent-coaching questionnaire to help readers build a more connected parenting style. The authors’ fresh approach empowers parents to find their own vision for their families, tailor-made to their children and their circumstances.

There’s no magic formula here–just truth, grace, and hope instead of to-do lists. Glen and Ellen come alongside fellow parents and grandparents to help them find the ideas they crave, the hope they need, and the grace they must have to raise passionate and God-connected future generations.

Declutter parent/child relationships today as we listen to a conversation with host Kathi Lipp and co-host Erin MacPherson with Erin’s parents, Glen and Ellen Schuknecht, who are family counselors, and teachers, as they join the podcast to share about their new book, A Spiritual Heritage”. We build a spiritual heritage when we consistently connect with our kids, love our kids and never stop believing in them.
