Karen Holdeman {S3 E16}

Today, we get the opportunity to hear from Karen Holdeman on the podcast! Karen shares how to stand in the gap for our children through prayer as they grow up. Karen also shows us what it looks like to boldly hold God to His Word. Finally, she reminds us that God's good gifts don't often come packaged the way we want them to, but they always transform us into the likeness of His son Jesus!

Karen wants to live in a world where God's authority is acknowledged, life at all ages in valued, addictions do not exist, strawberries grow year round, and roses never fade. When she's not helping with Connection Groups at her church or playing with grandkids, you can find her taking walks with her husband, Randy, or camping with the family.

Her favorite Scripture is Psalm 23 and Revelation 2:10c, NASB.

Katie Sharp {S3 E15}

This week, Katie Sharp joins us on the podcast! In this episode, Katie shares how prayer has become her lifeline and glue. She explains how she has allowed God to come in and teach her how to pray again.

Katie wants to live in a world where summer weather lasts the whole year, and the beach is steps away. When she's not teaching high school students, you can find her spending time with her husband, daughter, cooking and reading. 

Her favorite Scripture is John 10:14-18, ESV: "I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. And I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd. For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life that I may take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This charge I have received from my Father.”

April Gruber {S3 E14}

Today, we welcome guest April Gruber to the podcast! April shares about seeing God's power on display, witnessing His strength in action, and experiencing His ability to coax us out of our comfort zones. She encourages us to know God better which will lead us to loving Him more. This in turn will positively impact our time with Him as we pray and read His Word.

April wants to live in a world where there is no heartache and where drinking coffee and reading is counted as cardio. When she's not hanging out with her family, cleaning, or cooking you can find her reading, baking, swimming, hiking and camping (unless it's winter and then she'll be buried under some blankets by a fire).

Her favorite Scripture is 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, NIV: "Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."

Amy Price Bromberg {S3 E13}

This week, we have Amy Price Bromberg sharing with us on the podcast! In this episode, Amy speaks about how she does discipleship within her context of leading college-age girls through Athletes in Action. She invites us to be authentic and to live in a place of no hiding - a place where people can just be themselves.

Amy wants to live in a world where more people live freely for Christ and experience life to the full. When she's not with her husband Jason (whom she's newly married to as of June 2017!) or sharing her faith with college athletes on Dayton area campuses, she enjoys real conversations with friends over a tasty latte, hiking dates with the Lord, and cheering on her favorite athletes at sporting events. 

Amy's favorite Scriptures are John 15:5, Galatians 5:1 and John 10:10, ESV. 

Ask Amy more about her campus ministry with Athletes in Action by emailing her at amy.bromberg@athletesinaction.org!

Naomi Callahan {S3 E12}

This week, our sister Naomi Callahan joins us on the DWITW Podcast! God has cultivated confidence in Naomi's prayers, grown through the knowledge of God's love and by evacuating debilitating fear from her life. Now, Naomi prays "BUT GOD" prayers and encourages us to do the same. 

Naomi wants to live in a world where weeds don't exist, baked mac & cheese constitutes a healthy balanced meal, and electronics are an afterthought. When she's not actively serving in her roles as wife, mom, wellness coach, volleyball coach, substitute teacher, and prayer team leader, you can find her encouraging the people God brings into her life. Through her life, she has seen and wants other people to "taste and see that the Lord is good" (Psalm 34:8).

Naomi's favorite Scripture is Ephesians 5:8-14, NRSV:
"For once you were darkness, but now in the Lord you are light. Live as children of light— for the fruit of the light is found in all that is good and right and true. Try to find out what is pleasing to the Lord. Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is shameful even to mention what such people do secretly; but everything exposed by the light becomes visible, for everything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says,

“Sleeper, awake!
Rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.”
