The B&B Podcast
How many times have you been talking with a friend about something and you end with the phrase, "But I don't want to get my hopes up." Or perhaps you were repeatedly cautioned when you were younger with the similar "Don't get your hopes up." In this message Kim kicks off the fall series “Get your hopes up!”, reminding us that we serve the God of ALL HOPE.
Do you ever zone out or waste time? Our world is filled with distractions and things that are constantly calling for our attention. They promise to entertain us or to help us numb the pain in our lives… but too often these distractions leave us feeling empty. In this teaching we discover the key to finding true fulfillment and how we can choose to live with significant purpose!
Sometimes our lives are like sitting in front of the television. We might end up in a show that is full of suspense, drama, sadness, or warfare... or maybe we have to sit through a boring infomercial that seems to go on forEVER. How do we find peace and contentment when we are in a season that we are bored of, or scared in – or we are just OVER? In this message, Kim shares what the Apostle Paul has to teach us about mastering the discipline of contentment.
This message kicked off the Summer Series “Life Doesn’t Come With A Remote”.
We hear a lot about God's great love, grace, and power - but we can't move forward in the wake of our sin and shame without understanding God's mercy…
Are there things that you have intended to do, but just can't seem to get around to it? Has God asked you to do something but you are procrastinating? This month, Kim teaches on our good intentions using the parable of the two sons - which one was obedient? This message will leave you encouraged and challenged to get moving!
In part 3 of the series titled WOMAN, guest speaker Crystal Gurevich leads us in asking what truths can we hold onto when we’re standing at the tomb, see an empty grave, but can’t see Jesus.
In part 2 of a 3 part series titled WOMAN, Kim tenderly steps into sexual abuse and assault in the bible and addresses abuse or harassment in our own lives.
You are beautiful. You are made in God's image. No weapon formed against you shall prosper. You have been called into God's purposes. You are qualified. You are special. It is no accident that you were born a woman, for such a time as this.
Going home can bring up a mix of emotions, and Jesus understands them all.
It's easy to say we believe in God, but also easy to leave the name of Jesus out of the conversation.
Kim shares about the time Jeremiah was led to the potter’s house and what he discovered there. After researching pottery and potters, she found many metaphors and insights into how God sees us, creating us with purpose and with His perfect vision in mind.
Kim finishes up the summer series on the topic of friendship. Why is it important? How do you build friendships as an adult? Did Jesus have friends or just followers?
As women we can sometimes get too busy or too hyper-focused on life's issues to pursue friends... but when we are going through a hard time and are feeling vulnerable and alone - we feel the deep need for them. Jesus valued friendship, and so should we.
The word NO is an anointed word. It’s a very important word. Your no is just as important as your yes. And sometimes that means you will say no to ministry, to an invitation to serve, to spending time with friends. It’s not about isolating yourself. It's about recognizing a season to pull back and find some solitude. This month Kim shares what we can learn from Jesus and his practice and pulling away for times of solitude.
Have you ever felt mentally exhausted and physically tired, but instead of resting, you throw yourself into the next project or the next item on your todo list? Or maybe you just have another cup of coffee. Because there’s no time for rest. June marked the beginning of the Bagels & Bible summer series, where Kim looks to Jesus as our example of how to make room for rest and refreshment in our lives. In June, she talks about that time everyone else was in a panic and Jesus took a nap. Jesus assessed his need for rest – and then he rested.
How do you respond when problems come up in your life? Are you an optimist? “God is in control, He’s got this, things will work out, I trust God”…. Or are you a worrier and complainer? “This is hopeless, why does it always happen to me, there is no way for this to work out.”
Sometimes it can be difficult to read our bibles because it's hard to make sense of it. This week I will be talking about tools you can use that will kick your bible reading up a notch. In doing so I will also debunk a few common scripture interpretations that simply aren't true!
Did you know that women are twice as likely as men to develop an anxiety disorder? And anxious women are also more likely to develop an additional anxiety disorder such as an eating disorder or depression. This week Kim will be teaching on the epidemic of anxiety in women, the burdens we bear, and the One who came to carry them for us.
Is the purpose of prayer just to change us? Do our prayers impact God at all? Is it like a “one and done” or do we keep praying? God is sovereign but what does that mean? Is there a point of praying if He will do what He already planned anyway?
In a world of trying to measure up (exhausting, right?), we can really get down on ourselves.
In Luke 11, Jesus explains that the eye is the lamp of the body. In this message, Kim shares how what we let into our eyes affects our spiritual lives and teaches on the importance guarding our “eye gate”.
The metaphor of a gate leading to Heaven or Hell is not uncommon in Jewish literature, and it refers to the difficulty and severity of the discipleship the people of God are called to.
"All the women whose heart stirred with a skill...” Learn about the context of this verse, a man named Bazalel, an incredible tabernacle, and how God lifts our hearts to a task and then equips us to do it.
This is a great message by Pastor Heather Muncy
As much as we mean it when we sing “I Surrender All” in church, surrendering isn't always fun. Surrendering means we set aside our time tables, our dreams, and our wants - for a bigger purpose and a bigger picture that we can't yet see.
Have you ever run from God and found yourself in a storm? Or been overwhelmed in the dark waves that are the consequence of someone ELSE'S disobedience?
Hebrews 6:19 tells us that we have a hope that is an anchor for our souls, a hope that is firm and secure and that enters within the veil. In this message we explore what this verse really means, and learn about the supernatural rending of the temple curtain that took place when Jesus died, granting us eternal access to a Holy God and our loving Father.
What do you do when you find yourself in a storm and Jesus doesn’t come walking out on the water? In fact, your boat breaks apart and leaves you treading water and swimming for shore?
During those times when we feel so utterly OUT of control, we can be thankful that we have a Shepherd that loves us. It's our Shepherd's job to lead us to peaceful places, to provide for our needs, and to rescue us from dire circumstances.
Our job is simply to follow.
Have you ever felt not good enough? Or felt like a failure? Unloved? Alone? Join in a powerful time of shedding some of the labels that have been placed on us by the enemy, by others, and even by ourselves. Kim walks us through Zechariah and we learn how God handles it when our adversary attacks us with the very areas we struggle in.
