Feed Your Spirit is a Podcast talking with ordinary people about those moments in life when God’s word gives you just what you need when you need it most. We all have those moments when we randomly open our bible and there it is – His words of faith, renewal, courage, patience, or a good ol’ dose of tough love fills us with what only He can give. Hosted by the 2 Scripture Sisters, Jill and Denise, this conversation-style podcast aims to share stories that will feed your spirit. 

On today’s episode, we talk with Stefani. Beyond being a wife and mom, Stefani is serving as co-coordinator at her church’s Moms ministry team as well as VBS. Stefani is on a mission to make sure women, not just wives and moms, know that they are never alone. Learning through vulnerability, her mission’s message must be heard by so many women that it’s OK to be vulnerable, it’s ok to not be perfect, and to always trust and believe in the Lord. 

With the determination to consciously live in the word, we invite you to plug in and prepare your heart as we Feed Your Spirit with everyday stories of God’s grace from everyday people.

On today’s episode, we are talking with Candace. Candace is a wife, mother of 3, and business owner. She takes us through her journey as her husband battled cancer. It was not always easy for this young family but Candace learned how to give her husband to the Lord and allow him to make choices about his treatment with the Lord. With the love and support of family, friends, and her faith she talks to us about how to she became thankful in a not so thankful time. She also talks about her word for 2019 – chosen. In true, Feed Your Spirit fashion, the Lord was giving this word for her to live by over and over again. No matter where she turned, there was the word, “chosen.” Candace could not escape it and finally accepted what God has chosen her to do. Tune in and find out just how she is fulfilling God’s calling for this season.

Finding Calm

Over the past couple weeks, we have been getting asked why haven’t we posted on the blog lately? The answer is a simple one, we are embarking on a book study using, “Anxious for Nothing: Finding Calm in the Chaos” by Max Lucado. The book study came abut because my mother-in-law read the post about my anxiety and how I silently suffered. One day, she stopped over and dropped off a small bag of books for me. There were two devotionals and a copy of “Anxious for Nothing”. A couple weeks later, I was visiting Denise for a couple days and started to read it. Denise commented on how the book was on her To Be Read (TBR) list but she hasn’t picked up a copy yet. Then we talked about having an online book study and answer a couple of the reflection questions for each chapter then post it online. The idea, came into reality when I ordered a copy of the book for Denise, created a give-away on IG, and created the page on the website. With all that being said, we will be taking a couple weeks off from our weekly blog post to post on the Book Study page. We are finishing up Chapter 3 so there is still time for you to grab a copy of the book and join in the conversation on social media or through the comments on the website. We will be posting a new chapter every Sunday and blasting it out on social media. Remember to tag us @2scripturesisters and post your pictures/images/etc. as you read along. Peace and Blessings~Jill

Growing Strong Roots

While reading a devotional this morning, “Grow: Becoming More Like Jesus” http://bible.com/r/42S the author talked about how trees are the second most mentioned living thing in the Bible (humans being first), The author went on to compare humans to trees; if we have a strong root system (faith and obedience to God) and a source of water (connections and support) we will grow strong and healthy.

I love this metaphor because it is true. As my roots grow stronger through my time and work spent all for His glory, I realize how the streams that feed me come from one source, God. Whether it is a song, devotional, ministry work, writing, time spent with friends, groups, conversation, or work I know He is feeding my roots so I can weather any storm.

One perfect example of this is our new project, the Feed Your Spirit podcast, released last week. After its release, we heard from some people about how they connected to the message our guest talked about. Their roots were fed through a connection made between a set of headphones. This is one way God is working through us to provide water to help His trees grow strong. Like a tree I know I will bend and sway through storms but with God’s love, I will not break. Love ~ Jill

“They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream.”  Jeremiah 17:8
