100!

100!

As I was editing a recent podcast and creating the blog post for the episode, it dawned on me that over the past year + of blogging, I have over 100 posts! It is so fun to see the change in my writing style and even the spiritual change that has occurred in this past year. My “lifestyle” blog posts are becoming fewer as my focus has shifted more towards sharing the Lord and people’s testimonies. When I post, I want it to be more about God than about Friday Favorites. 😉 It is still fun to read those lifestyle blog posts and I will still occasionally post them (like today!), but the majority of my posts in recent months have dramatically changed.

So I thought it would be fun to take a look back at the TOP TEN posts that YOU have liked the most (based on the number of visitors/readers via WordPress) AND the TOP FIVE podcast episodes via Anchor).

Thank you for being here for over 100 blog posts and for always supporting, sharing, and commenting. I so appreciate you!

Don’t forget to tune in next week for another podcast that will air on Tuesday! Make sure to subscribe wherever you listen to podcasts:

My guest for the Go & Tell Podcast with Lauren Greci: Episode 21 is Jamie Kelley. Jamie and I know each other from church and a few years ago she shared her incredible testimony about how God protected her through a terrible accident that left her in a coma for days. Once I started this podcast I knew I wanted her on to share her powerful story of redemption through God’s mercy and grace. I pray that you will leave this conversation feeling the love of God and know that when we trust Jesus as our Lord and Savior, God forgives all of our sins. Jesus nailed our sins to the cross, so friend, know that you, too, can feel the peace that Jamie shares in this episode.

Go & Tell Podcast with Lauren Greci: Episode 17: Hebrews 11: 1-3

The Go & Tell Podcast is all about sharing testimonies but this episode is a little different. Hebrews 11, otherwise known as the ‘Hall of Faith,’ has been weighing on my heart and mind and I just felt like I needed to share the testimonies of these ‘hall of faithers’ stories, confirming the fact that God chose seemingly unlikely people to further His Kingdom, who were called to obey and be faithful with what God commanded.

These people remind me, and hopefully you, too, that God can use all of us! I mean, isn’t that the command of the Lord, to make disciples? He can use a sinner like me, and that is both overwhelming and humbling. He can use you, too, momma!

My hope that you find something new and refreshing from Hebrews 11: 1-3 today. This is just the start of a deeper dive into Hebrews 11 that we will take over the next few weeks and months. I am looking forward to learning and growing with you during this study of Hebrews.

Go & Tell Podcast with Lauren Greci: Episode 14 with Johnna Hensley – Part One

My guest for the Go & Tell Podcast with Lauren Greci Episode #14 is Johnna Hensley. Johnna is a mom to six, wife, D-Group leader, yogi and full of wisdom, experience and insights. Her faith has carried her through many obstacles and her faithfulness is just beautiful.

As she shares on her blog, she is a “wife to an energetic and giving man, Ryan. I was a lost sinner but I found hope and redemption in Jesus. My life is nothing as I expected it to be. It is much better than what I could have thought up on my own…I manage a special needs son and two “typically” developing sons, and an adopted biracial child while homeschooling them all in beautiful chaos we call our own.” In addition, Johnna has expanded her home and is fostering two siblings, which we talk about in Part Two of our chat.

In Part One of our two-part conversation, Johnna shares her faith walk, the birth of her son Hayden, and so much more! I know you are going to love Johnna and her sense of humor, wisdom and the joy she radiates.
