A Biblical View of Sex and the Dangers of Pornography

A Biblical View of Sex and the Dangers of Pornography

Barb Winters is my guest today!

Barb is a certified Sexual Risk Avoidance Specialist and has completed extensive research on pornography and its effects on individuals and society. As Lead Facilitator at E3 Family Solutions, Inc., I equip youth at local schools to avoid risky behaviors and make healthy choices.

From her website, www.hopefulmom.net:

When one of my sons was fourteen, he confessed to watching pornography. I was shocked, mad, and ashamed. I questioned my parenting skills. The stigma surrounding his behavior kept me from talking with others, so I suffered in silence. The pain and emotional turmoil left me feeling empty and alone.

Since that time, I’ve learned a thing or two about pornography, screens, online relationships, hookup culture, grooming, human trafficking, and the teenage brain. My experience combatting this monumental problem and my desire for no other parent to feel alone in this battle led me to create this site. It’s a place for parents, grandparents, and caregivers to find support, encouragement, and practical tips for parenting in this digital world. Oh, and HOPE.

What is Churchianity?

What is Churchianity?

In today’s podcast, I talk with Luke and Kayte Abaffy. Luke is a videographer and writer. His book, The Truth: Reformation 2.0 is a lighthearted, hard-hitting apologetics resource written to equip Torah observant believers to understand and defend their faith using Scripture.

Katye Abaffy is a Certified Life Coach, who brings biblical wisdom, life-tested tools, and best friend enthusiasm to each client she serves, as she helps them do the things they’ve been meaning to do and become who they were meant to be.

Book blurb for The Truth, Reformation 2.0:

For 2,000 years, Christians taught that trying to keep the laws of the Old Testament is at worst, a blasphemous attempt to earn one’s salvation and at best, a misguided pursuit meant for Jewish people alone. Thanks to our fortunate involvement in the New Covenant, we don’t need to concern ourselves with now-symbolic food laws or the shadow-picture feasts of Leviticus 23 … or do we?

What if those laws are essential to the New Covenant and tied to the very purpose of life? What if they reveal more of Jesus’s example for us to follow? And what if the law of God is a perfect reflection of who He is, allowing us to know Him in a deeper way than ever before?



Finding our Identity in Yeshua

Finding our Identity in Yeshua

In this day and time, many are confused about who they are and their purpose in life. Believers in Jesus are no different in many ways. Trauma, abuse, and injustices can change the way we once saw ourselves and leave us empty and searching for a new identity. But, as my guest, Ruth Camargo shares, Jesus is the fulfillment of who we are and why we are here on this Earth. She shares how Jesus showed her who she is and how much she is loved by Him.

Ruth Camargo is a wife and mother of four. She has over a decade of experience as an Early Childhood Educator. She has a heart for the unborn and has been a Sidewalk Advocate for Life. She and her husband Pedro lead a Children’s Ministry called Torah Heroes in Albuquerque, NM. In her free time, she enjoys having tea, baking, creating, journaling, & studying Hebrew. She enjoys connecting with other women & sharing in all areas of beauty. She is passionate about encouraging others to walk in their true purpose & identity in the Messiah.

Diary of a Control Freak

Diary of a Control Freak

We have an awesome show today with my guest, Charli Brown founder of The Rooted Kafe. Charli is a nurse, speaker, author, and leadership coach.

You will laugh, cry, and be inspired to change with Charli. As seen on The Practical Portion (Messianic Lamb Network) and The Portion, Charli Brown is that speaker and author that personally connects with you while taking you on a journey of change. Her passion is breaking down tough topics using humor and relatable stories. She is the founder and director of the international ministry, The Rooted Kafe.

In It’s Not My Weed to Pull—Diary of a Control Freak, author Charli Brown shares through humor and garden imagery how God showed her that not every problem was her problem to solve and that when she tried to hop over into others’ “gardens,” to help,
the result usually ended in disaster. In her no-nonsense, cut-to-the-chase way, Charli opens up about her own experiences and guides readers to understand the problem that being a control freak really is, for yourself and for others, and what God has to say
about pulling up weeds in someone else’s garden.

Is the Torah Still Relevant Today?

Is the Torah Still Relevant Today?

My guest is Holly Eastburg from HebrewRootsMom.com.

Is the Torah still relevant to us today? Does it have anything to do with Salvation? Do we really need to keep the Torah with its laws and teachings? Is there a more significant spiritual blessing for those who do? Holly and I discuss that and more in today’s episode.

From Holly’s website:

My family and I are on a journey to grow spiritually and strengthen our Christian faith through a deeper understanding of the Old and New Testament and the culture of our Messiah, Jesus.

Studying the bible from a Jewish perspective can provide a great deal of biblical understanding. Each member of my family has grown spiritually since we started practicing our faith according to our Biblical roots and making this a part of our family’s legacy. It’s my desire for other Christians and their families to grow along with us and I welcome you to join us on this journey. I’ll share our beliefstraditionsrecipes, and more to help you on your Hebrew Roots journey also. I hope it’s as much a blessing to your family as it has been to ours!

Her book, Bring Shalom to Your Home welcomes Christians to bring peace and completion to their lives by providing ways to live out their Biblical faith. Led by ancient traditions and Scripture, Holly Eastburg teaches the basics of practicing the Hebraic Christian faith through these topics:

The Hebrew Roots of the Christian Faith, The Sabbath (Shabbat), The Biblical Holy Days (Moedim), Passover (Pesach), Unleavened Bread (The Feast of Matzah), Firstfruits (HaBikkurim), Shavuot (Pentecost), Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teruah/Rosh Hashanah), Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles), Hanukkah (Feast of Dedication), Purim, The Shema, The Biblical Hebrew Language, A Biblically Clean Diet, Studying the Bible, The Biblical Calendar, Finding a Church, Teaching Your Children, Explaining Your Faith to Your Others.
