What's it really like to have a cosmetic procedure like a tummy tuck, breast lift, or liposuction, and what should you ask a surgeon to help you decide? Why are some of the criticisms of plastic surgery outdated? And can cosmetic procedures and body positivity co-exist? In this episode I talk with Terri Zomerlei, MD, from the Centre for Plastic Surgery in Grand Rapids, MI. We dig in what to think (and ask!) about when considering having a cosmetic procedure, some of the procedures she performs most often on women in their 40s and 50s, and what you can do to increase the chances you'll stay safe during and after the procedure - and be satisfied with the results.

On this episode of the podcast, we sit down with Tom's sister, Sarah Fifer. In addition to sharing how learning to listen to those who believe differently from her opened up her faith and her understanding of what the Church can and should be, Sarah also gives us a glimpse into her experiences as a Physician Assistant in critical care through the COVID-19 pandemic. Understandably so, this pandemic has had a massive impact on her life, and it has given her a unique perspective on the Church that we (whether we're part of a local church right now or not) need to learn from. This is a truly important episode...especially as locally in Grand Rapids, MI, Spectrum Health (the largest hospital system in the area) has moved to "red status" for the first time since the start of the pandemic. Now more than ever, we urge you to check in with the folks in your circles who work in healthcare, to offer your care and support. As Sarah shares with us, daily holding the hands of people who breathe their last breath without any family members around them is changing the DNA of frontline healthcare workers forever. We have to take care of the people who have been taking care of us. _____Let's keep this conversation going!We'd love for you to share this episode with a friend, family member, or even an enemy. Listen to it together, talk about it together, and then tell us about your conversation. Also, join our Facebook group to find some fellow listeners to wrestle with these ideas further.

Have you ever had a moment in your life where you needed to give something fully to God? The word surrender may feel a little overwhelming, but Dr. Debbye Turner Bell is a great example of what can happen when we fully submit ourselves to God's best and accomplish something we didn't feel we were capable of doing. Join Eryn and Elisa on this episode of God Hears Her as they revisit their conversation with Debbye Turner Bell and her journey of pursuing a courageous faith. About Our Guest: Dr. Debbye Turner Bell is a veterinarian, broadcast journalist, motivational speaker, workshop facilitator, corporate trainer, and Miss America 1990. For more than two decades, she has addressed audiences in the corporate, academic, and community service arenas. In addition to her speaking and media work, she is also the Founder and CEO of Debbye Turner Bell Consulting, a faculty member of the Institute for Management Studies, and an Affiliate Trainer for the TransPorter Group Inc. Dr. Debbye Turner Bell lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with her husband, Gerald, and daughter Lynlee. Notes and Quotes: All Quotes by Debbye “That [prayer of surrender] is when my goals became subservient to God's goals, will, and His purpose for my life.” “It is a matter of deciding, ‘God, I believe you no matter what the circumstances look like.'” “That is what I seek to get to: that if God Himself smite me, it won't shake my faith in Him.” “God proves Himself to us every day. And if we will just take the time to notice His faithfulness in our lives, then it creates in us a reservoir of His work in our life.” “Every time that God performed a miracle in the Old Testament, an altar was built. The whole purpose of the altar was to remember what God had done.” “What I know about God and what I feel in the moment can be such a disconnect with me.” “When we don't know what God's Word says about who we are and our identity and our authority, then we live below our privileges.” “Faith is a decision, not a feeling.” “Surrender is a choice, not a default.” “Surrender takes strength.” “Our identity is not what happened to us. Our identity is who we were created to be.” Links/Books/Resources Mentioned in Show: God Hears Her website: https://www.godhearsher.org/ Subscribe on iTunes! https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/god-hears-her-podcast/id1511046507?utm_source=applemusic&utm_medium=godhearsher&utm_campaign=podcast Order God Sees Her: 365 Devotions for Women by Women on Amazon: https://amzn.to/32lYSgh Order Courageous Faith: A Lifelong Pursuit of Faith Over Fear: https://amzn.to/3A6RCVz Debbye's Instagram: debbyeturnerbell Elisa's Instagram: elisamorganauthor Eryn's Instagram: eryneddy

What are the interpretive sides and rationales adopted by scholars?

Been a second, but ‘Where is This Going?” returns with the great, Devante Barnes! Devante is a Grand Rapids based artist. If you live in the GR area, you've probably seen a couple murals he's worked on. One on the Four Star Theatre and the other in Grandville. Devante started creating art at a young age and recalls stealing Sharpie markers from the art classroom in middle school. He explains that much of his early work consisted of cars and that evolved to drawing people, more specifically people's nudes. “It beats asking for ‘em”, he jokes. Devante describes his style as cartoonish and incorporates a lot of hands and flowers into his work. He enjoys drawing hands because, “They're difficult and from your own POV, they're what you see in constant motion”. Devante and Hunter also reminisce about attending middle school together in Zealand and relate to pain being the authentic black experience. Keep your eyes peeled for future murals in town and be sure to like and follow Devante's work on social media @devadidit. Enjoy the episode!

This week on the podcast we'll explore reasons to believe in God and the Bible. Have you been hearing the number a trillion lately? It seems like the U.S. government is always trying to spend a trillion or more dollars! Large numbers are often lost on us. For example, many today seem to accept the fact that the earth is 4.5 billion years old. We hardly bat an eye. The earth has to be billions of years old in order to support the theory of evolution. I'm sure you know that the Bible's description of earth's creation seems to support a young earth, not one that is billions of years old. But did you know scientific evidence exists for a young earth? For example, evidence measuring the delta of the Mississippi River shows it started flowing 4,000 years ago.Also, the earth's magnetic field is decaying. Using the current rate of decay, the earth can't be more than 10,000 years old. Otherwise, the magnetic field would have surpassed that of a star!Then there are the Polonium 218 halos in certain rocks. They formed when the rocks cooled. Their existence contradicts the idea the earth's molten rock cooled over thousands and millions of years, because the Polonium doesn't last that long.* I could list more examples, but only have a bit of time left! Just remember, a lot of evidence exists for the relatively young age of the earth and solar system, which contradicts the idea of evolution. *Scott M. Huse, The Collapse of Evolution, (Grand Rapids, Baker Book House, 1983), p. 20-27.

Find the Show Notes here. Do you ever wonder if your God-shaped dream might be something He hasn't yet revealed to you, or questioned why you feel blocked from God's purpose for your life? Cindy DeBoer and her husband were 12 years into marriage when God put it on their hearts to examine if they were living out the faith they professed. What followed was a season of confession, questions, and a re-making of the life they thought they were called to. In this conversation, Cindy shares about the gritty yet life-giving journey her family discovered as they began to live truer to their faith. It was one of letting go of the American Dream in exchange for an “unmissionary” experience abroad as they uncovered the better dream God had for their lives. If you've wondered what it looks like to live out a vibrant faith, surrendered to Christ, so you can truly learn how to love God and love others, you'll enjoy hearing what God did to transform Cindy and her dreams. We talk about: The regular practice Cindy and Paul have made of asking the questions, “What am I doing? Why am I doing it? And am I living out what I say I believe?” How her greatest fears about the impact of this dream on their kids were unfounded, And the power of living in obedience to what God has put on your heart.

NOTE: Mortification of Spin is now a biweekly podcast. In the “off” weeks through the month of November, we'll feature an encore episode of another Alliance podcast: Theology on the Go with Jonathan Master and James Dolezal. A new episode of “The Spin” is coming 10/27/21. Joel Beeke is a prolific author, professor, and president of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary. He's also the pastor of a Netherland Reformed Congregation in Grand Rapids, MI. Beeke recently published Reformed Preaching: Proclaiming God's Word from the Heart of the Preacher to the Heart of His People, which is the topic of today's conversation. Joel tells us why—for a long time—he wanted to write this book. He shares the distinctives of Reformed preaching, and explains what he means by “experiential preaching” by citing a few examples from the past. How can one preach experientially, and speak to the hearts of both believers and unbelievers in one single sermon? Dr. Beeke offers a satisfying answer!
Here at MinistryWatch we bring you news about Christian ministries, as well as the latest in charity and philanthropy, news that we examine from a Christian worldview perspective. Our goal is to help us become better stewards of the resources God has entrusted to us. These mid-week “Extra” episodes are a chance for us to go deep with a particular topic, and this week I want to take a deep dive into Christian higher education, because of both its pivotal role in the culture, and because Christian colleges are among the largest Christian ministries in the country. Today, we have on the program Dr. Erik Hoekstra. Erik Hoekstra serves as the fourth, and current president of Dordt University. Born in Grand Rapids, Michigan, he is no stranger to the role of president of a Christian college. His father served as president of Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights, IL, when he was growing up, and his father-in-law was president of Trinity during his college years. Erik Hoekstra received his bachelor's degree in history and philosophy from Trinity Christian College, his master's degree in international management from The Rotterdam School of Management of Erasmus University in the Netherlands, and his Ph.D. in organizational learning and human resource development from Iowa State University. During his time at Dordt, President Hoekstra has led two capital campaigns, the building of a new Science and Technology Center, nursing simulation lab, theatre space, and Agriculture Stewardship Center. He has overseen the creation of innovative programs, such as Pro-Tech, a two-year, hands-on vocational degree. President Hoekstra also served in the process of transitioning Dordt from a college to a university in 2019.

Human-Centered Communication: A Business Case Against Digital Pollution by Ethan Beute and Stephen Pacinelli About the Book: Digital pollution is the problem. Human-centered communication is the solution. We're spending more time than ever in virtual environments. That will only increase, as will the amount of noise we encounter there. The seemingly endless series of unwelcome digital distractions range from frustrating to dangerous. As individuals and businesses, we not only spend time and energy managing this digital pollution, we often create it. At risk are relationships and revenue. The only viable way forward is to be more thoughtful, intentional, and personal. Human-Centered Communication provides a philosophy and practice to help you connect in more meaningful and effective ways with prospects, customers, team members, and every stakeholder in your success. Learn to: Break through the noise and earn attention Build trust and create engagement Enhance your reputation with both people and algorithms The concepts and models in this book apply to any form or channel of communication, but human centricity favors video.
