Christine Chappell (author, wife, mother, marketer) joins me to talk about becoming a Christian as an adult after the untimely death of her father and what that first year was like for her. Christine struggled, like I did, with the process of growing and maturing rather than being instantly sanctified. She wants us to know that the head knowledge we learn about God and the Bible has to get into the heart and that is where change happens.
So, this has been a rough couple of weeks and I let the episode for this week go. But! I did want to share with y'all some of my favorite shows in case you need something else to listen to this week. See you back next week!
In no particular order, the podcasts I most always listen to:
Sermons by Francis Chan
Mom Struggling Well
Inspired to Action (Mom show)
The Big Boo Cast (two mom friends chatting)
This American Life
Hope Writers (Good for any creative person)
A Mom's Mission Field
A few others that are good that I didn't mention in the show are My Light Still Shines with Retha Morgan and The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey. I didn't post links because I don't know which platform you listen on and surely if you're listening to this show you can figure out how to find the other shows. Love ya, mean it!
My friend Teresa Stowell joins me to talk about her journey of discovering the connecting pieces between the well-known stories of the Bible when she started digging for information. Now, Teresa uses her wisdom and experience to teach on Instagram! Follow her @rtstowell
My old college pal, Megan McCool, is here to talk to us about her journey to understanding why it is important to practice spiritual disciplines like praying, reading her Bible and attending church or being in community with other Christ followers. She talks about relying on God during times of loneliness and uncertainty and the new lesson He is teaching her about being still and abiding in Him.
Here are the links to some of the things Megan recommended:
Faith-based health coach Becky Lehman energetically shares her story of losing 100 pounds and what God taught her about idolatry through all of it. She now helps others dig into the root of their unhealthy behaviors to help them discover the potential for health and happiness God has given them.
Anne is a blogger and a speaker who has a heart for encouraging others, especially women, to recognize who Christ says they are and to go be bada** for Him. She went from a background of having no concept of who Jesus was to her personally to buying a Bible at Costco all the way to becoming a women's minister in five years.
Yes, there is a cuss word in this episode and it is said multiple times so please take the necessary precautions.

Why do we do things the way we do at church? Are all the programs effective? Should we be getting together in fancy buildings to pray for each others' health and finances? I don't know. I mean, I go to a regular Baptist church so obviously I'm not against it.
Patrick Mead is a former Baptist pastor who has gone out to start a new kind of church with a new kind of church culture. He emphasizes community and relationship and Christian bartenders.
Have you ever asked yourself how Jesus would tell us to do church? Think about it!
Small town preacher and gospel singer Jarrod Vanderslice shares his story about meeting Jesus in his car on the Interstate one day and how it changed his relationship with God and the good news.

Selynda Vass is a speaker, author and homeschooling pastor's wife who also works to educate foster parents. In her free time *wink* she has started a ministry for pre-teen girls called "Sparkle."
Selynda's main stuff she missed was relationship with Jesus and she shares her story of how her step dad adopting her gave her a picture of God the Father.

*There are some audio issues with this recording. I am asking for grace as it was my very first interview!*
This episode is just a little introduction to what we are doing here with Stuff You Missed in Sunday School. It's called episode 0 because it's not a real episode. BUT. Those are coming very soon. And they are full of wisdom from Godly people!
This show is meant to be encouragement for the Christian where we can all learn from each other's lessons about God and the Bible. Discipleship. That's what we are here for.
In the mean time, I'd love it if you would subscribe so that when the real episodes are ready, they'll come straight to you.
