She Finds Truth is a podcast about reality, Jesus, and everyday life. It's about discovering God is using us right where we are - in the midst of our craziness! - to glorify Him and sanctify us. Bottom line, it's the podcast for Christian women about how God is working in the chaos of our daily lives.

Still hammering out how to get my podcasts recorded while working full time and doing all the family things. This episode didn't turn out too bad as far as sound. I do apologize for a few background noises! Also I'm trying out a new format and I think it's going to work well. Episodes that follow this format will include 1-3 parts that reflect ...…
 
*This is definitely a gender-neutral episode!* (also, I'm back to my prior graphic; which do you like better?) Recording a podcast in my car! You do what you have to do. The more I do this the better it will get, I promise! #soundquality This episode was born when I was speaking at a MOPS group recently. We started talking about how hard it is ...…
 
First podcast episode back after way too long of a break! It takes me a few minutes to get back into the swing of things (and I have to apologize for the pops and sub-par sound quality!), but eventually I find my groove. Catching you up to speed on why I've been gone so long and then I start in on all this grace I've found. It's been such a ple ...…
 
This week I get to share my interview with Pastor Jordan Cooper about his book Baptized Into Christ! He shares insight on a number of things including intimacy with Christ, Jesus as the example, and being holy and sinful at the same time! It's a great chat that is sure to be encouraging. Click here for the complete show notes at SheFindsTruth.c ...…
 
Is theology relevant to everyday life? Of course! That's why I'm here. She Finds Truth is all about finding the truth of how Scripture applies to our lives. The Bible is a story about who God is and about how He created man and then man abused the order of things God had set up, but God was merciful and full of compassion and love THE ENTIRE JO ...…
 
You don't have to listen to 46: My Christ and My Chaos episode before you listen to this one, but this show technically is a response to that episode. Seriously it's won't ruin the experience, but I thought I should mention it. The Mess In that show, I talk about "the mess" and how it seems like a popular topic. That we are all "a mess." There' ...…
 
Welcome to the fall 2017 season of She Finds Truth! Calling this a "season" plus I'm giving it a theme! I know. It's so much excitement. ;) I'm going with the theme Here I Stand, which I know is kindof cliche but I can't resist. It's too appropriate for life right now. For those of you who don't know, 2017 is the 500 year anniversary of Luther' ...…
 
Things are going good! It's weird! lol I talk about a blog post I published this week where I process why things are going good. There's less chaos in my head and it's somewhat confusing! Is it imposter syndrome? Is it denial? Hey! Maybe it's my antidepressants! I have a new job and some details are shared and then I launch into the main topic ...…
 
Turns out the world does not revolve around me. I am not at the center of the universe. This is just one of the many realizations I have in this episode as I process my thoughts on potential employment and God's involvement in this realm of our lives. I went looking for some peace of mind in Colossians and I found it when I started sifting thro ...…
 
Things I'm thinking about this week... Mother's Day can be hard. Some parents are toxic. So I talk about both of these things. Why we should consider being sensitive about Mother's Day, in case you are oblivious that reality exists for some. It would be easy for me to be clueless about it as a mom and someone who still has her mom. But I have f ...…
 
In today's episode I ponder the richness and complicated-ness (is that a word?) of life. Between feeling vulnerable, having to push through the drudgery of a tough weekend... to the joy of watching people fulfill their vocations effectively. And then I start talking about the richness and nuances of Scripture and how I'm learning so much about ...…
 
In which I take a few minutes to welcome the new listeners, and talk about why the church needs to be talking more about mental health. Then I tackle the concept of GRACE in our parenting and in our dealings with other humans (not God). Here's the post from Intentional Moms that includes me on a list of best podcasts for Moms! Here are the link ...…
 
This week I ignored the alarms going off in my head and I posted on the blog about how crappy I've been feeling and what kind of anxiety and maybe even depression I've been toying with. It's nothing like some people have to face, which is one reason I'm hesitant to even bring it up. Nevertheless, a few things talked me into it including getting ...…
 
Today's episode attempts to look at John 15:1-11. I used to cringe when I heard the word "abide." Why? Because it scared me. Take a listen to find out what my messed up deal was. I mention some writing stuff at the start of the show including Joanna Penn's website www.thecreativepenn.com and her book The Successful Author Mindset which I'm reco ...…
 
Lent has me reflecting on Jesus and His life here on earth. His humanity. There's a lot to being human, isn't there?! So I share some very real life stories you might be able to relate to. Then look at how the real life story of Jesus is so relevant in light of our humanity. He knows how it is to be human, because He was human too. The two natu ...…
 
This is episode #2 in my series about sexual assault where we dive into the spiritual implications of it. Episode #1 can be found here! This is a deep, complicated topic, so I brought in someone with experience in the trenches, Heidi Goehmann (pronounced gae-man! which I got wrong) author, social worker, and deaconess. Heidi has written and pro ...…
 
I saw a very nice happy meme that said YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH and was supposed to make me feel better and encourage me after I had a rough time with something. But it just makes me feel squirmy. Because I know I'm NOT good enough. In this episode I explore this question of being good enough and of course that leads us to dip into the 2 kinds of ri ...…
 
Women's Bible studies are a surprisingly controversial topic in Christian conversations. You'd think they would be a no-brainer, but instead it can be divisive and complicated. In today's episode I address the elephant in the room when it comes to popular authors like Beth Moore and Sara Young and what place they should and shouldn't have in Bi ...…
 
How is God WITH me? Recently when I was trying to clarify what my podcast and blog are all about, I ended up with a chart. It's been pretty helpful in reminding me of all that God offers me and how I have access to those things in the incredible physical world he has created. This episode focuses in on those 5 means of grace in the middle. List ...…
 
I'm back from holidaytime and I'm so glad to get things going for 2017! Today's show is me checking in and talking us through some things about reflecting on 2016 - in good ways - and looking ahead at the coming year. I share some of my resolutions and how I'm afraid of failure. At the end I throw in a bit about sanctification. It's great! Chec ...…
 
When I opened Donna Pyle's book Without This Ring: Surviving Divorce to prepare for our interview, I was not prepared for how powerful her story and guidance would be. Silly of me since I'm a big fan of Donna's and I know she brings authenticity and practicality to the pages of her writing! But her raw story struck a chord with me thinking back ...…
 
It is my position that the church needs to be having a louder and more productive and useful conversation about sexual assault and what we can do to serve our neighbors who have faced such experiences. This is part I in a series I'm doing where I interview experts and helpers who can assist us in maneuvering this topic for the good of our frien ...…
 
Am the only one who feels a lot of pressure that I'm supposed to "be the light"? Maybe I should just quit whining and do what needs done, but I'd also like to know what it means for sure to be the light. Today I hash through this after having had a conversation with a friend who felt like she had failed to be the light. Is it just about doing t ...…
 
As a young adult Christian I was constantly wondering what my life was supposed to look like as a follower of Christ. My everyday life. How does one "serve Christ," really, with all these distractions? What careers count? I definitely wanted to please God, but I wasn't sure how. Plus there was still sin in my life and I was super frustrated abo ...…
 
Most of us have had a series of friendships that can bring up a whole host of emotions when we think about them. It occurred to me recently that some of us (me included!) might not be approaching our friendships intentionally as grownups. I think I took it for granted that friendships when I'm in my 30's would be easy and fulfilling. LOL What i ...…
 
We are layered people. Not one-dimensional like the people on sitcoms. Me. My husband. The grocery store clerk. Everyone. Jesus too. There's way more to Him than I tend to think. He's layered like an onion - just like us. One way for us to unpeel the layers is to look at how Christ fulfills the 3 offices of prophet, priest, and king. This is ca ...…
 
Theology is interesting to me because I like to get to the crux of things. Analyze the snot out of them. (It's a gift. Sortof.) Hence I like critical thinking. Asking questions, finding answers. Good stuff. Which is why I'm digging deeper in this episode and asking some questions that I think probably a lot of people have but we don't talk much ...…
 
It's pretty self-explanatory. Lol Whether it's summer or not, if you feel like there's been a disconnect lately between you and your maker just because your head is filled up with other things.. then you'll probably feel right at home in this episode! I discuss what's been going on a little and what it looks like when I do finally sit down with ...…
 
Don't you hate it when you record a podcast one week but don't get it posted till the next? Well hate might be a strong word. I'm just glad I have one to post! This episode starts out me talking about how we got 4 inches of rain in these parts the night before. Interesting since a week later we got 6 inches and that's the state of things while ...…
 
The topic of God's Plan for our lives is a complicated one. It opens up all sorts of roads of discussion about fate, destiny, happiness, grief, and intention. The reason I'm doing a show (shows actually) about it is because I think there is soo much mis-information about it and the way we casually talk about it doesn't take into consideration w ...…
 
Lately my brain has been swamped with emotional life stuff and I was feeling really annoyed until I remembered that everyone is dealing with something and it's just how it goes. The thing is, when we are in the thick of it it's hard to remember. Does God expect me to be handling this better than I am? Looks to me like the Bible tells us about a ...…
 
Today's long awaited episode is an interview with L.L. Martin author of Positively Powerless: How a Forgotten Movement Undermined Christianity. I read this book and loved it and think it has a really important message we all need to pay attention to. Satan is very sneaky and this is definitely one of his angles. She isn't suggesting there is ev ...…
 
Last episode I interviewed counselor Amanda Hofbauer from Chicago, IL for advice about how to comfort our friends who are struggling with something. We talked about the not-helpful thing people say and what might be more useful to our neighbors. Today I look at the book of Job for direction on how to be a friend to someone who is going through ...…
 
"Some things in life cannot be fixed. They can only be carried." -Megan Divine Today's show is about those uncomfortable conversations where we cannot fix the problems people are struggling with. I am honored to have Amanda Hofbauer, MA, AMFT as a guest on the show discussing the difficulties of these conversations. She is a licensed Couples an ...…
 
First of all, there are some glitches in the technology here and there. I know about them and apologize. I think I was talking too fast for my computer. ;) Been thinking about parenting and what it really is and how to prioritize parenting stuff with the rest of the world. I realized that sometimes I might be wishing away this time in which I'm ...…
 
Some thoughts on Lent, Easter, and suffering. Discovering holes in theology when you put limits on God's faithfulness. And my goals for the podcast and my women's ministry. What is prosperity theology? Why Lutheran? The Lutheran Knuckleheads article I wrote called Coming Up Short. Pastor Shields - follow him on Twitter! Blog posts about sufferi ...…
 
In today's episode I answer questions I've been pondering since Episode 15 concerning fear and what the Bible says about it. Does it really say "Do not fear" in the Bible 365 times? What does the world think "perfect love" means? Why does Joseph Prince seem to have cornered the market on this? Do I really have to dissect I John to figure this o ...…
 
You want to EXPERIENCE God? FEEL His presence? FIND Him? It's less about you or me finding Him. It's more about how He comes to us. The Means of Grace can be defined as "how the Holy Spirit works both faith and good works in our lives." (from Spirituality of the Cross by Gene Veith p44) The Means of Grace are the vehicle God uses to come to us ...…
 
I'm so glad to be back! Had to skip last week because my brain was overloaded, but now things have improved. Praise the Lord. In today's podcast I explain how I think there is an internet culture directed at women that promotes a lot of false sin and (therefore) false guilt. Telling us we have these problems and offering up a bunch of solutions ...…
 
Awhile back I listed out some things I can do when I am feeling like a loser and just can't get it together. (I've decided I need to post these in my office. Or on my forehead.) But meanwhile, I did a podcast on them. The first part was episode 13 and I basically got through 1-2.5. This episode completes the list and I think it's a decent list. ...…
 
In an effort to be uplifting today instead of super heavy (it IS February after all; in the Midwest that means we are all struggling to go on with our lives because the sun hasn't shined in 3 months), I ran across this post I did awhile back called 10 Steps When You Feel Like a Loser. Turns out talking about these in detail only brought us thro ...…
 
Recently I got an email asking what I thought about the IF:Gathering. This conference and the discussions I've had about it have prompted the resurfacing of all sorts of emotions and fears I have had in the past. I didn't actually go to the conference. I know that would have been great because then I would have a more educated opinion, but my h ...…
 
I've been thinking a lot lately about the right way to approach Scripture. I'm becoming more and more aware of how we make everything about US - including the Bible. Yes, the Bible delivers the message of our salvation. But the Bible is about God. He is the main character and the plot twists and main ideas are all centered around Him. Not us. I ...…
 
How do you make decisions? Recent conversations have revealed the usefulness of having litmus tests and standards for filtering decisions and priority-making. It reminded me of an illustration Kendra Smiley shares in her books High-Wire Mom and Do Yourself a Favor, Love Your Spouse. I love sharing her idea and keeping it in mind when I'm trying ...…
 
I keep running into things online about self-esteem and of course while one is in a funk, one's self-worth isn't real healthy... So I've been thinking about all this. Today's podcast is me sorting through how we measure ourselves and figuring out better ways to do it. I utilize the following resources: Juli Slattery's article in Today's Christi ...…
 
I've been in and out of this lousy place for a while and it's gotten old. Today's podcast is about what my funk looks like, what solutions I've attempted or considered, and a few Scriptural things that have really helped. I've found myself clinging to a remembrance of my baptism at least once a day, and more when my self-esteem is completely in ...…
 
First podcast of 2016! Woohoo! [caption id="attachment_1145" align="aligncenter" width="500"] photo credit: impression detail via photopin (license)[/caption] Here's my stab at new year talk.... I talk about my hate/love relationship with "resolutions," and how I like to label my new-year plans for the coming year. Since everyone is talking abo ...…
 
This week I get nitty gritty into what makes us so stressed out this time of year and what makes Jesus the perfect answer for our messy Christmases. This is based on a message I shared last year at our Advent by Candlelight event that was titled Jesus Makes All Things Bright and Beautiful. If you aren't feeling like there's much brightness in y ...…
 
Anyone else? So much to think about this month. So many expectations and loads of anticipation and plenty of pressure. Especially if you're the household manager. It's hard to get focused. It's hard to even figure out, some days, what exactly this time of year IS anticipating. Here in the first week of Advent, lets do exactly that. I realized i ...…
 
In today's podcast I tell some stories about how I figured out that friends aren't just good for a laugh, but are really useful to have around when life gets bumpy. I realized that the greatest commandments (Matthew 22:37-40) are ALL about relationship. In fact pretty much everything about God's law and Word has to do with relationship. Nothing ...…
