Faithful Parenting in a Digital Era: Strengthening Spiritual Bonds in Families w/ Cheryl Lutz Ep 068
When the pressures of today's world weigh heavily on the family unit, it takes wisdom and courage to steer through the storm. I had the privilege of conversing with Cheryl Lutz, a speaker and biblical counselor, and together, we unpacked the pivotal role of parents in fortifying their children against the tides of societal influence. Whether your family is navigating the waters of homeschooling, public, or private education, this episode offers invaluable guidance on aligning family strategies with biblical principles to combat the allure of false security that some educational environments might project.The dance between faith and parenting is intricate and delicate, especially for families at the helm of church leadership. Cheryl and I examine the personal faith journey, underscoring the importance of cultivating one's relationship with God beyond inherited beliefs. We peel back the layers of the unique obstacles pastor's families face, from the magnified scrutiny to the siren song of people-pleasing, highlighting the need for a community that extends grace and uplifts through prayer. This episode serves as a candid reflection on the challenges and triumphs of raising a family in faith amidst a digitally driven society.In our search for a haven within church walls, we draw inspiration from the historic unity of Roman soldiers to illustrate the strength found in Christian camaraderie. I emphasize the duty of church leaders to nurture a culture where tough conversations can be had with humility and honest dialogue. Addressing the struggles that young people confront, such as drug use and same-sex attraction, this discussion champions the church's role in offering a compassionate embrace rather than judgment, ensuring a sanctuary where every soul is guided and supported in their spiritual journey.

How to Read the Bible with David Price
Join me as I welcome the insightful David Price, a minister, and certified professional life coach, to discuss the essential question: Is there a right way to read the Bible? Our conversation covers the cultural hesitations surrounding the idea of a 'correct' method to engage with scripture, stressing the necessity of foundational rules to truly grasp its teachings. We confront the laissez-faire attitude that any reading approach is valid and consider the Bible's explicit nature, advocating for an understanding of the consistent message God imparts to all rather than cherry-picking truths that conveniently fit personal narratives.Listen in as we explore the crucial role of context in interpreting the Bible and the dangers of reading verses in isolation. This episode sheds light on the common missteps readers may encounter and offers practical advice on approaching biblical study with the reverence it deserves. We delve into the importance of recognizing the Bible as the infallible Word of God and the principles of consistency, competency, and comprehensiveness in study habits. By committing to these principles, we can develop a deeper appreciation for scripture and a more robust understanding of its messages.Lastly, we discuss the dynamic nature of faith and the responsibility of believers to discern truth and verify teachings against the Word of God. David and I touch on the challenges church leaders face when confronted with questions, highlighting the importance of patience and love in the journey toward truth. The episode wraps up with a call to embrace personal growth through openness to new perspectives and an acknowledgment of the evolution of our understanding. I invite you to check out David's ministry.Connect with David Price:✔Website: www.TakeBackYL.com✔Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100015415965649✔Podcast: Take Back Your Life✰ SOCIALS ✰✔Website - https://www.ruthhovsepian.com/✔Podcast - https://outofthedarknesswithruthhovsepian.buzzsprout.com/✔Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/ruthhovsepian/✔Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/ModernDayRuthRedeemed/✔LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/ruthhovsepian/✔Speaking - https://www.ruthhovsepian.com/speaking✔Books - https://www.ruthhovsepian.com/booksruthhovsepian✰ BUSINESS EMAIL ✰info@ruthhovsepian.com✰ MUSIC ✰hot music - winning-elevation

Why & How Do We Read the Bible? with Shara Neubert
Join me, Ruth Hovsepian, for a compelling conversation with Shara Neubert, a teaching pastor and discipleship director with an incredible background in women's ministry and leadership. Listen in as Shara shares her insightful strategies for overcoming the hurdles of engaging with the Bible, particularly when it's perceived as challenging or uninteresting. We tackle the importance of understanding one's purpose for reading scripture and how a sense of curiosity can be a powerful tool in creating a meaningful study practice. Shara also highlights the profound impact of leaving a spiritual legacy, a topic that resonates deeply as we discuss its influence not only within our families but across our broader communities.In this session, I underscore the necessity of reading the Bible in its entirety, akin to how one would savor a novel, to truly grasp the narrative woven throughout its passages. As we explore texts like the Sermon on the Mount and the books of Genesis and Revelation, we discuss the value of patience and allowing for initial confusion, which later readings can clarify, connecting the Old and New Testaments in unexpected ways. I also stress the importance of being receptive to the Holy Spirit and the insights of fellow believers while trusting our own ability to learn from the scriptures. This chapter of our discussion is a reminder to approach the Bible with enthusiasm and commitment, fostering a habit of consistent engagement with the Word of God.The final chapter of our exchange delves into the distinction between reading and studying the Bible, where I share my personal endeavor to read through different versions of the Bible within a month. We delve into the effective strategies for in-depth Bible study, including the importance of choosing the right materials and formats that resonate with one's learning style, the significance of creating a study schedule, and the lasting influence that visible study habits can have on those around us. Shara's coaching and workshops offer a beacon of inspiration for listeners aiming to integrate these practices into their daily lives, with the goal of making 2024 a year marked by spiritual growth and connection. Tune in for an inspiring session that will reignite your passion for religious exploration and the joy of sharing that journey with others.Check out Shara's website, https://www.sharaneubert.com/, to find a Bible Engagement Assessment to take in order to see where you fall in your own satisfaction.  It helps you to understand where you are at in 8 elements of Bible engagement:  Reading, Bible Navigation, Prayer, Church Participation, Understanding, Use of Study Help, Joy in Reading, and Bible Study.  Whew!  There are lots of areas, but all are very useful in having a balanced Bible life.  ✰ SOCIALS ✰✔Website - https://www.ruthhovsepian.com/✔Podcast - https://outofthedarknesswithruthhovsepian.buzzsprout.com/✔Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/ruthhovsepian/✔Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/ModernDayRuthRedeemed/✔LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/ruthhovsepian/✔Speaking - https://www.ruthhovsepian.com/speaking✔Books - https://www.ruthhovsepian.com/booksruthhovsepian✰ BUSINESS EMAIL ✰info@ruthhovsepian.com✰ MUSIC ✰hot music - winning-elevation
