The first time Chesed was here, she wow'd us with her bible knowledge and storytelling skills that are wrapped in perspective and truth, so we obviously had to have her on again! And when we decided to do a series on Women of the Bible, after two incredibly fun chats with her, it was a no-brainer to ask Chesed back! In case you missed her last episodes, Chesed, who is the Director of Global Studies Internships at Liberty University, brought her teaching skills to the table when she shared parts of her story with us. She tells us how we can have security in our purpose, and about the strength we can find in uncertain times. Chesed is a traveler. She spent her formative years in other countries, and this created a very unique global world view that impacts her perspective, and that perspective enables her to enlighten her listeners. Quotes: "I'm obsessed with God's Big Story." "God has done a kindness in my life by showing me I am not strong."

What if we could keep a God's-eye view of our lives — that no matter how scary or painful a situation might be, coming up ahead of us is a break and some peace? Sadie's guest, Katie Davis Majors, was reminded of this truth in a particularly harrowing experience she had while swimming in the Nile River. Katie was 18 when she first traveled to Uganda for a mission trip, and she ended up staying for many years, starting a charity, meeting her husband, and adopting 13 girls! Katie and her family — including 2 boys now! — just recently moved back to the United States, a decision that wasn't easy and one that Katie didn't initially understand. Katie encourages anyone wondering what they're going to do with their life that God is way more concerned with who you'll BE than what you'll DO. Start focusing on who God's called you to be! And don't discount the experiences you're having right now, wherever you are in your life — you have no idea what God is preparing you for! Sadie and Katie talk about the importance of sisterhood and how, whether they're biological, adopted, or even best friends, the blessings of sisters are an amazing picture of God's love for us. https://www.reliefband.com — Get 20% off plus FREE shipping with code WHOA! https://liberty.edu/Sadie — Get your application fee WAIVED when you start your future with Liberty University today! https://www.homechef.com/whoa — Get 75% off your first box! - Learn more about your ad choices.

Help! I'm Raising Fatherless Kids
God will often use mentors as a vessel for His fathering. One of the most important investments a single mom can make in the life of her children, especially her sons, is providing a mentor. A man who will come alongside to help navigate the path of a boy from childhood to manhood, from teaching simple skills of a handshake to pursuing a wife, and everything in between. Single moms will need to release a lot of their preconceived ideas of what family looks like and consider that it will take a village to help raise their children. A fatherless child is not likely to stay on the right path without the strong support of somebody guiding them along the way. Eric Helms is the founder of Driven to Encourage Ministries and the territory servant leader for Atlanta Metro and travels to many locations sharing the life-changing message of Jesus Christ.

This weekend's conversation will focus on the vital issues impacting America's citizen-stakeholders and the world: — The collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and The Signature Bank and its cost to America's taxpayers. — Spotlight on the Federal Reserve Bank and its adverse impact on the free market economy. — The future of regional banks in America. — Addressing the dangers of President Biden's ESG rules—"environmental, social and governance" placing retirement savings at risk. "Put simply, retirement savings will be used as leverage to force companies to reduce their carbon emissions and establish racial and gender quotas and other social justice fads completely unrelated to securing a high return on workers' lifetime savings....Terrence Keeley, a former executive at BlackRock, blew the whistle on this scam in the Wall Street Journal by noting that since 2017, when the ESG fad took hold, these funds have had an annual rate of return of 6.3% – versus 8.9% for the stock market as a whole. Investors lost 2.6% per year on their retirement funds. There goes the down payment on that retirement home in Arizona or Florida." — Stephen Moore (https://www.foxbusiness.com/markets/bidens-esg-investment-rules-threaten-your-retirement-savings) — The China Threat.

On today's program, Arizona Christian University's student teachers are no longer welcome in the local public school system, and the college is fighting back. We'll have details. A Ponzi scheme that targeted Christians defrauded investors of more than $80-million. One of the perpetrators of the fraud cooperated with authorities and got off with a slap on the wrist. We ask why? The ministry behind the popular devotional magazine “Our Daily Bread” was the victim of a data breach. Some donors are complaining that they weren't notified in a timely manner. We'll have more later in the program. We begin today with news that Jerry Falwell Jr. has sued Liberty University. Jerry Falwell Jr. claims his former employer has withheld $8.5 million in retirement benefits that were previously promised to him. FINAL THOUGHTS: I want our listeners to know that if they give to MinistryWatch during the month of March, they'll receive a copy of my book “Faith Based Fraud: Learning From the Great Religious Scandals of our Time.” We've offered this book in the past, but it's been more than a year since the last time we offered it, and we have literally tens of thousands of new people on our email list, so we're making it available again. It's our thank you gift for a donation of any size to MinistryWatch this month. Just go to the MinistryWatch website and hit the donate button at the top of the page. The producers for today's program are Rich Roszel and Jeff McIntosh. We get database and other technical support from Stephen DuBarry, Emily Kern, Rod Pitzer, and Casey Sudduth. Writers who contributed to today's program include Dale Chamberlain, Kim Roberts, Anne Stych, Steve Rabey, Kathryn Post, Christina Darnell, Rod Pitzer, Emily McFarlan Miller—and you, Warren.

Man Up God's Way- Jody Burkeen
Background: I was born in 1971 with a birth defect. I had four surgeries in the first three and a half years of my life. I am not supposed to be here. I thank God for the prayers of a godly mother.I spent my childhood on a dairy farm in south-central Kentucky about one and a half hours north of Nashville, Tennessee. My father was a bi-vocational SBC pastor and farmer, and from an early age, I desired to be a pastor. In 1989, I graduated from Barren County High School and began attending Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. In the spring of my freshman year of college, I began dating Tosha. During our dating years, in March 1992, a drunk driver killed my godly mom. This greatly shaped my view of what it means to live in a real relationship with God and others.I won the 1993 Liberty University preaching award and got to personally meet with Dr. Jerry Falwell. Additionally, I got to speak to 5k plus people in the weekly convocation service.In 1993, I married Tosha, graduated with a bachelor's degree in pastoral studies, and began studies at Dallas Theological Seminary. While pursuing my seminary education, I worked as a youth pastor at South Park Baptist Church in Grand Prairie, Texas. I became the interim senior pastor of that church during my final year in Dallas. I graduated cum laude from DTS with a master's of theology (Th.M.) degree in pastoral studies in 1996.After completing seminary, Tosha and I became qualified as church planter apprentices with the Southern Baptist Convention. We moved to Colorado Springs to start Vanguard Church of Colorado Springs. Vanguard quickly raised local media attention as well as national attention in media outlets such as Time, The 700 Club, Christianity Today, The New York Times, and ABC World News Tonight.I have now served as the Senior Pastor of Vanguard for 24 years and have transitioned from being a church planting/founding pastor to being a senior pastor.
A former Doraville police officer who is accused of killing 16-year-old Norcross resident Susana Morales is now facing additional accusations that he allegedly broke into a Snellville family's home in 2019 and committed burglary. Snellville police filed a first degree burglary charge against Miles Bryant last week. Police initially had trouble in identifying a suspect in the case, but that changed around the same time that Bryant was arrested last month in connection with Morales' murder. The Snellville burglary is the latest crime that Bryant has been accused of committing. Gwinnett police charged him last month with false report of a crime and concealing the death of another person, and later added felony murder and kidnapping, in connection with the death of Morales, who disappeared and was killed last July. Gwinnett police also accused Bryant last month of attempting to break into a woman's home in 2018 by climbing in through her window, and of attempting to enter another woman's residence in December 2022. A Snellville police report shows the burglary at the center of the newest accusations happened at a home on Windsor Lane on May 26, 2019. Bryant was already in the Gwinnett County Jail on the charges related to Morales' death when he burglary charge was filed. Gwinnett police have not ruled out the possibility that Bryan could face additional charges related to the 2018 and December 2022 incidents that they are currently investigating. The Shiloh High School cheerleading program will host The Black Table Talk — Finding Balance: How To Control My Thoughts On Social Media, Relationships, Work and School — on March 15. The event, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in Shiloh's theatre, is a fundraiser to bring the student body and community together to discuss and ask questions about the importance of coping with mental health by providing methods that will help students learn how to balance life's challenges like relationships, school, dysfunctional families, work and social media. The panel includes Crystal Renee Hayslett (Tyler Perry's Zatima and Sistas' Fatima), Gail Bean (Snowfall's Wanda), Venna Excel (a social media influencer), Tracy Stephens (founder of the Black Hiking Club), B.J. Armstead (a sports therapist and life coach) and Lisa Herbert (a family doctor and life coach). Tickets to the program are $5 and can be purchased through the GoFan app Gwinnett County Police Department officials, including Chief J.D. McClure, will meet with Hispanic residents in the Norcross area on Thursday to address their concerns about recent crimes, including the kidnapping and murder of 16-year-old Susana Morales. The police department will host a community meeting at 6:30 p.m. at Universal Church, which is located at 6081 Singleton Road in Norcross. In additional to McClure, command staff from the West Precinct and Criminal Investigations will answer questions from members of the Hispanic community. Spanish-speaking officers and interpreters will be in attendance at the meeting as well. In recent weeks, police have discovered the body of Morales, who disappeared while walking to her home near Norcross last summer. Former Doraville Police Officer Miles Bryant was arrested and charged with murder and kidnapping, as well as other crimes, in connection with Morales' death. The same week that Morales' body was discovered in eastern Gwinnett, the body of another Norcross teen, Rodrigo Floriano Mayen, 17, was found by his family in a home, a few days after he was reported missing. Police have said he died from an overdose. Morales and Mayen were students at Meadowcreek High School. Police officials said they will not be able to discuss specific details about active cases, but they will be able to discuss department procedures for people who have concerns about what is happening in their community.

Students at Jordan Middle School in Lawrenceville put down their Chromebooks on March 2 when over 60 professionals from all walks of life took over classrooms to present, inspire and intrigue their young minds. Presenters included David Still, mayor of Lawrenceville; Jordan Middle School namesake's daughter, Judy Jordan Johnson, the former mayor of Lawrenceville, as well as a talk show host, lawyers, military personnel, authors, entertainers, and professionals from a host of other fields from medicine to professional athletes. Students were encouraged to “dress for success” and they did not disappoint. From suits to dresses, students looked the part as they engaged in conversations and activities surrounding possible career paths for their future. Organizers Felecia Sconiers and Kesha Brown have teamed up to put on more than 12 career day events over the years. However, this marked the first one of many to come at Jordan Middle School. Their passion for this event stems from the mindset that, exposing students to careers is important, but allowing them to hear about the path, with its successes and obstacles, is priceless. As an educational leader, Principal Melissa Miller, believes that career days at school are a vital component of a student's educational experience. School officials credited the volunteers as well as the Jordan Middle School community, parents and friends that showed up for making the event a success. Liberty University sophomore Jadin Skye Rafus, a Buford resident, has been honored by The National Society of Collegiate Scholars. The honor society honors high-achieving first- and second-year college students with a minimum of a 3.0 GPA. The society was founded in 1994 by veteran student affairs professional Stephen Loflin. Notable NSCS distinguished honorary members include former president Jimmy Carter, U.S. Ambassador Dr. Robin Renee Sanders, the late Senator John McCain and former U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Donna Shalala. For the second time in a less than a week, the state Senate shot down legislation Monday aimed at legalizing sports betting in Georgia. While 30 of the 56 senators voted in favor of Senate Resolution 140, it fell short of the two-thirds majority needed to pass a constitutional amendment. Last week, the Senate defeated a second sports betting bill that did not require changing Georgia's Constitution to bring online sports betting to the Peach State. On Monday, Senator Bill Cowsert, an Athens Republican, the chief sponsor of Senate Resolution 140, argued the constitutional route was the best way to go because it would have let Georgia voters decide whether to legalize sports betting. But Senator Marty Harbin a Republican from Tyrone, said it would be irresponsible for senators to pass the issue to voters because they do not have access to the same information as the Senators. Harbin also opposed legalizing gambling because of its potential to lead to addictive gambling. The resolution's supporters pitched it as a way to create a needs-based scholarship program in Georgia to supplement the HOPE Scholarship program, which is based on merit. Under the legislation, half of the state's share of the proceeds from sports betting would have gone to needs-based scholarships. The loss of the underlying constitutional amendment as well as the defeat of last week's Senate bill left supporters of sports betting with just one remaining option. A House bill legalizing sports betting without a constitutional amendment was pending in the House Rules Committee on Monday and subject to a vote sending it to the House floor.

Now, she is pouring that energy and drive into her future career, her marriage and activities on base when there is only 3 hours of partial daylight outside during the Fairbanks, Alaska winter. When Courtney finishes college and student teaching she plans to enter the elementary classroom with the goal of motivating and inspiring students the way her teacher did for her. She also wants to coach basketball. I can tell from her work ethic that she will do both to great effect.

Guest: J. Josh Smith Senior Pastor, Prince Avenue Baptist Church Josh began his ministry as senior pastor of Prince Avenue Baptist Church on January 14, 2018. Josh was the senior pastor of MacArthur Boulevard Baptist Church in Irving, Texas for 12 years before coming to Prince. Pastor Josh has ministered in more than 30 countries, worked with international students at Duke University, and served as a missionary in central Europe. His greatest passion is the exaltation of Christ and the advancement of Christ's kingdom to the ends of the earth through the ministry of the local church. Josh received his Bachelors in Cross-Cultural Studies from Liberty University, a Masters of Divinity from Southeastern Seminary, and a Doctor of Ministry in Expository Preaching from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He and his wife Andrea, have four daughters and one son. The Titus Ten: Foundations for Godly Manhood Paul's recommendation to Titus on how to fix the problems that he's seeing in the culture - fix the men in the church. What can you do to get men to serve? You're asking the wrong question. What kind of men do you want in two years - start building those men, and the doing (service) will come out of the being (as a child of God who modeled leadership by serving). Foundations for Godly Manhood (from The Titus Ten): Dominion Gospel Identity Assignments Authority Character Doctrine Mission Zeal Investments Dominion - mankind was created to have a relationship with God, to live under God's authority, and to have authority over everything God created (Psalm 8) To take dominion meant to take responsibility, to care, to lead, to cultivate. There are two words in Genesis 2 that give clarity on the meaning of dominion: work and keep (Gen. 2:15). When you think about work, think about a plow When you think about keeping, think about a sword. The domains where a man is to have dominion can be divided into three areas of Christian living: The church The family The world A man must first take dominion over his flesh. God wants to begin to rebuild men through the Gospel. Self-control - learning how to say “no” to the lesser things so you can say “yes” to the greater things that God has in store for you! Faith is believing that God's plan is better than your own. Sin is self harm. Go to work and work hard. Go home and work hard. Go to bed tired. Guys, when you go home, it should be a better place when you're there! When you put no effort at home, you'll get no “fruit” for your labor! Walking in “dominion” means that you're the chief worker! Older men - younger guys are desperate for an older man to invest in them. Be open and prepared to share the wisdom from God's Word with others around you. T4M guys - just a reminder that Training4Manhood is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) ministry and you can make donations either via Zelle (email@example.com) or by visiting the Training4Manhood website. Huge thank you to Jared Wood for allowing T4M to use his music in our intro and outro selections.
Cross Examined Official Podcast
Is it wrong to criticize other Christians when their beliefs and actions don't line up with the Word of God? Many people think so. Just ask our friend Natasha Crain, who received a sack full of virtual hate mail for her recent blog post, which logically pointed out several issues and concerns with the $100 million "He Gets Us" advertising campaign that seemed to tickle the ears of many Christians. During the first half of this week's podcast episode, Frank goes through several points Natasha outlines in her blog post and reminds listeners that Jesus Himself was pretty serious about correcting people (especially the religious leaders!) for leading others astray. In the second half, he shares some insights from the 2023 Discovery Institute Science and Faith Conference in Dallas, along with his recent speaking engagement at Liberty University on the topic of legislating morality. He also takes the time to answer listener questions. To view the entire VIDEO PODCAST, be sure to join our CrossExamined private community. It's the perfect place to jump into some great discussions with like-minded Christians while simultaneously providing financial support for our ministry.

The nation is watching now as the Asbury Revival hits 2 full weeks and sparks similar outpouring of worship at other universities and locations across the country. Why does this matter and how should we view this? Ryan Helfenbein of Liberty University's Standing for Freedom Center provides a measured and biblical analysis of why our perspective should matter and what questions we need to ask. The response has generally been polarized: one of total embrace or outright rejection. How can we tell the difference between genuine revival and counterfeit? What is “revival” anyway? Ryan and Jenna discuss!See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Headship in Christian marriage is a concept that is often misunderstood and misused, leading to harmful power imbalances and the perpetuation of patriarchal attitudes. But what if we told you that, in God's design for marriage, headship is not about entitlement or domination, but rather a call to sacrificial love and servant leadership?In this episode, we dive into the true meaning of headship in Christian marriage, exploring the roles and responsibilities that come with it and challenging the harmful misconceptions that have plagued this important topic for too long.Headship in God's Design for MarriageIn Christian marriage, the concept of headship is paramount. It is a role that involves leadership, strength, and guidance. As the spiritual leader of the family, the husband is expected to provide examples of how to live a life that honors God's will. This means being a solid example of faith, passion, and integrity that actively leads his family in their relationship with Jesus Christ.Jesus set an example of servant leadership when he washed the feet of His disciples, John 13:4-17. He placed Himself in a position of service to those who followed His leadership.Ephesians 5:21 (NIV) says to, “Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.” I often encourage husbands to go ahead and skip to verse 25, because that is where the letter specifically addresses us.The concept of headship in Christian marriage is rooted in scripture and implies a divinely-ordained order of authority within the family unit. The Bible makes it clear that the husband is to be the head of his wife, much like Christ is the head of the Church. This does not mean that husbands are meant to dominate their wives or make decisions without consulting them; rather, headship calls for a strong leader who takes responsibility for leading his wife and family according to God's will. It also includes providing spiritual guidance and protection, while nurturing and caring for one's spouse with love and compassion.In this episode, you will learn the following:1. The odds of divorce for couples who experienced divorce as children.2. How it is possible to have equality in a marriage relationship and headship? 3. That time when Jerry was called to take on the headship of his marriage.3. If committing to a biblical marriage, what responsibilities do Christian husbands have?Scott LaPierre - Teaching Pastor, Author, and SpeakerScott LaPierre is the teaching pastor of Woodland Christian Church in Woodland, WA, an author, and conference speaker.

Soteriology 101: Former Calvinistic Professor discusses Doctrines of Salvation
Dr. Jim Gifford, Professor from Liberty University, joins Dr. Leighton Flowers to talk about his new book title, "The Hexagon of Heresy," which can be found here on Amazon: https://a.co/d/5G4ScfF "Have you ever wondered how we got here? Have you ever wondered how Western civilization arrived at the brink of suicide? How did a thoroughly Christian culture give rise to the very ideas that seek to kill it? Constantinople was conquered by the Ottoman Turks. Western civilization has never been conquered from without; it is being conquered from within. How do philosophies like deism, fatalism, Marxism, atheism, and secular humanism arise from within the confines of the Christian theological culture that is Western civilization? Also, why are there always exactly two sides to every fundamental disagreement? Why is it either liberal or conservative, sovereignty or freedom, rational or volitional, meticulous order or complete chaos, Catholic or Protestant, Lutheran or Reformed, God or humanity, the one or the many? Why is there never a third option, or even an option that can bypass the dichotomy? This book attempts to provide a framework that seeks to begin answering some of those questions. The answer may be something very ancient and almost forgotten in today's world. Theological decisions were made long ago that planted the seeds for the destruction of both church and civilization. What are they? Read and find out."

In this interview with Alex Kocman, we discuss the rift between theology and the world of missions. Many times there seems to be disconnect between those who are concerned with orthodoxy and those who are concerned with reaching the lost. Alex (and his co-author Chad Vegas) wrote “Missions by the Book” in order to help relieve this tension and provide a better way forward. We dive into some of the ideas in the book, primarily discussing their use of the regulative principle and how it can be applied to missions. We highlight some examples in Muslim contexts of evangelism and church planting. Bio from website - “Alex Kocman a husband, father, student of theology, writer, former youth pastor, missionary mobilizer, and lay leader in his church.He received his M.A. in Media and Communication Studies and B.S. in Biblical Studies through Liberty University, where he also served as an online evangelism and apologetics instructor with Liberty University Online from 2012-2014.

“Do not fret because of evildoers, Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb." As I begin to prepare for our chat today reading over Psalm 37, I couldn't help but think that if there ever were a chapter we need to deal with our worries and fears, this is the one. I'll never forget my very first year at Lynchburg Baptist College, (now Liberty University), as a brand new believer, I heard Dr. Falwell preach in chapel from this chapter and say that it was his favorite Psalm and that he had memorized it as a young pastor. I thought, if it meant that much to him, I need to memorize it too. Psalm 37 was the first whole chapter in the Old Testament that I memorized, and it sure has brought me great consolation and encouragement over these past 50 years of ministry. We know from the title that David is the writer of this Psalm. From the chapter itself, we learn that he wrote Psalm 37 in his mature older years. In verse 25 he said: “I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his descendants begging bread.” It is very possible that David sat down with his son Solomon and shared these words with him to prepare him for the throne. In 1 Kings 2:3 we read: “Now the days of David drew near that he should die, and he charged Solomon his son, saying: "I go the way of all the earth; be strong, therefore, and prove yourself a man.” See also Proverbs 23:17-18, 24:19-20. I can see David sitting down with Solomon, with the Book of Job in his hand, as he discusses the age-old problem of why the righteous suffer while the wicked seem to prosper. Honest atheists and agnostics don't have to wrestle with this problem because their philosophy of relativism forbids them to use words like good, bad, righteous, and wicked. However, those who believe in God sometimes wonder why He allows the wicked to succeed while the righteous suffer. The word "wicked" is found fourteen times in this Psalm. The theological foundation for the Psalm is the covenant promise that God made with Israel, recorded in Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 27-30. God owned the land, and if the nation would keep His Word near and dear in their hearts, and obeyed Him, they could live in His land and enjoy its blessings. But if Israel disobeyed the Lord, He would first chasten them in the land with invasion from enemy nations around them, with drought and economic failure, and with famine. And if they continued to ignore His prophets and rebel, God promised that He would then take them out of the land and send them into captivity. (See Deuteronomy 11 and 33:28, and Leviticus 26:3-10.) But even in David's time, it seemed that the wicked were prospering and that God wasn't doing anything about it. Jeremiah dealt with the same question in Jeremiah 12. David notes that there are several things the righteous person could do in response. They could fret over the problem (vv. 1, 7-8), they could leave the land (v. 3), or they could go on being faithful, trusting the Lord to keep His Word (vv. 3, 5,7, 34,39). Like any mature believer who had been through his own share of suffering, David took the long view of the situation and evaluated the immediate and the transient in terms of the ultimate and the eternal. He encouraged Solomon and the people to believe God's promises and wait on Him. In this Psalm, David gave four encouraging assurances to believers who question how God is running His world. And at least three times in these first verses he tells us not to fret. Over the next few days, we will be looking at these promises and instead of fretting, worrying, and being fearful and angry, we will see why we should wait patiently for the LORD and trust in Him! God bless!
Your Hope-Filled Perspective with Dr. Michelle Bengtson podcast
Episode Summary: Are you tired of dieting? Feeling weak and tired? Are you tired of the dieting yo-yo of losing weight only to gain it back again and more? What do you do when you hate dieting? Today we're talking about help for disordered eating. My guest has been there, understands, and offers hope, help, and healing for the diet-weary soul. Quotables from the episode: Disordered eating comes from an unhealthy relationship with food. Disordered eating isn't as much about the food as it is about what we think about food. You can be free from disordered eating, shame, a negative body image and an unhealthy relationship with food NOW. God is not a God of chaos, but of order. When people struggle with disordered eating, they tend to have black and white thinking especially as it relates to food. You can cultivate a healthy relationship with your body today and not wait for the thinner one you will have in the future. Dieting works from the outside in while God's healing operates from the inside out. We will have no peace when we give the shamer access to our mind and our soul. Being free has nothing to do with a number on the scale and most of us need to be free enough to treat our body well before we focus on losing weight. Women struggle with these issues no matter what they weigh. It has nothing to do with numbers, it is all about how we think. God heals us from the inside out! Become familiar with their own story, process it with the Lord and maybe a counselor, and then begin to combat shame with the Word of God. Shame is insidious and colors everything we think and perceive. You are already loved as you are, regardless of what the scale says. Scripture References: Be very careful about what you think, because your thoughts run your life (Proverbs 4:23 NCV). For they have treated the brokenness of the daughter of My people superficially, Saying, ‘Peace, peace,' when there is no peace (Jeremiah 8:11) God does not view things the way people do. People look on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart (1 Samuel 16:7b NET) Recommended Resources: Still Becoming: Hope, Help, and Healing for the Diet Weary Soul by Laura Acuna Today is Going to be a Good Day: 90 Promises to Start Your Day Off Right by Dr. Michelle Bengtson YouVersion 7-Day Devotional, Today is Going to be a Good Day YouVersion 7-Day Devotional, Today is Going to be Another Good Day Breaking Anxiety's Grip: How to Reclaim the Peace God Promises by Dr. Michelle Bengtson Breaking Anxiety's Grip Free Study Guide Free 7-Day YouVersion Bible Reading Plan for Breaking Anxiety's Grip Hope Prevails: Insights from a Doctor's Personal Journey Through Depression by Dr. Michelle Bengtson, winner of the Christian Literary Award Reader's Choice Award Hope Prevails Bible Study by Dr. Michelle Bengtson, winner of the Christian Literary Award Reader's Choice Award Trusting God Through Cancer 1 Trusting God Through Cancer 2 Revive & Thrive Women's Conference Subdue Stress and Anxiety: Fifteen Experts Offer Comprehensive Tools in Ten Minutes a Day.

Imagine being born with a gift for music, playing piano, drums, and bass so well that you were recruited by Julliard and other top music schools, but then giving it up because it was too easy and you really loved basketball. That was the path chosen by Alex McLean, who didn't play organized ball until he was 18 and then had to learn the game at two junior colleges. His dedication eventually earned a college scholarship to Liberty University, where Alex became a prolific scorer and rebounded.But though he got good enough to star in several pro leagues overseas, Alex took another diversion when he gave up playing to start his coaching career. An unexpected call from the Washington Wizards led to him overseeing G-League assignments, and he worked his way up to lead the team's player development. Alex has also become a go-to coach in women's basketball, working with the likes of Kiki Rice and Paige Bueckers, and recently started a school with his business partner to give back to the DC community.Listen up as Alex shares:· Why he turned down a lucrative pro deal in China to become a GA for $800 a month at Liberty U· How being the first player in the gym for a year can help you win a roster spot· What Paige Bueckers finishing a training session with one shoe showed about her· How John Wall's Achilles injury and a commitment to serving helped establish his NBA career· Why doing the unseen work today prepares you for tomorrow's opportunityLearn from Alex's lead-by-example mentality on Instagram @alexmcleanbball
