Season 4 Episode 48 – One Step Back and Three Steps Forward – My friend Carolyn Scheil isn’t a fan of introspection. She’s always held the opinion that it’s pointless to look back. She believed you should just go forward from where you are. That was until she read Soul Care by Rob Reimer. In this episode, we speak with Carolyn about this book and how it helped her self-awareness and spiritual identity. Learn why we can’t just modify our behaviour, we have to go back and correct lies we’ve believed with truth.
Season 4 Episode 47 – A Classic Contradiction – This week, Karen Taylor joins Donna to talk about a parable out of the imagination of C.S. Lewis. The fictional story, The Screwtape Letters, describes ways Satan tempts us and tries to trip us up in each chapter. Karen shares how this insight has changed her relationships and why the combination of COVID and this book has provided a phenomenal opportunity for growth and grace.
Season 4 Episode 46 – Hearing God’s Outside Voice – Chatting with Calgary Herald Columnist Licia Corbella is always fascinating. Apparently, God thinks so too. In one of the lowest times of her life, Licia began to hear God speak in an audible voice. She shares with us an amazing story that came out of obeying that audible voice. She also shares lessons learned through the book River Dwellers about prioritizing time alone listening to God, abandoning her tendency to being a “human doing” and becoming a human being”, and allowing the Holy Spirit to carry her like a river.
Season 4 Episode 45 – A McHistory of the Bible. – Donna welcomes her history-loving friend Paul Gifford into the virtual blanket fort to talk about a history book, of all things. As a Sunday school teacher and avid Bible reader, it was Paul’s curiosity about what appear to be gaps in the biblical record that caused him to pick up this book. There is so much context surrounding the scripture narrative that requires deeper digging. Paul discovered that doing that digging can help us read between the lines of scripture and find deeper meaning.
Season 4 Episode 43 – Feeding the Gospel to Your Kids – Family friend Evan Menzies joins the podcast to talk about a book that totally changed the way he parents, as well as lives. They discuss the secret sauce of parenting, the idea that families are groups of sinners living under one roof, and showing vulnerability to your kids when you’ve done something wrong. Learn why every interaction with your child is an opportunity to feed the Gospel into them in this episode of Grow on the Go.
Season 4 Episode 42 – Confronting Racism with Wendy Lowe – This week, Wendy Lowe helps us Grow on the Go through and open and honest discussion about racism in Canada. She is the Senior Pastor at NEXT Christian Community, serving Christian compassion ministries as well as teaching leadership and team building in the corporate sector. Wendy talks with Donna about the racism hidden in our own hearts and how not acting hatefully toward anyone is not enough for a Christ-follower. Learn why confronting racism is Kingdom work and the ways we can each make a difference in this podcast episode.
