||CleanThe Value of Discipleship | Part One with Dr. Robert Carpenter||Today will be the first of a two-part conversation about Discipleship with Dr. Robert Carpenter. I became connected to Dr. Carpenter through my studies at Regent University as he was one of my Seminary Professors in a Biblical Discipleship course over the summer. Dr. Carpenter, therefore, teaches about our call as Christians to “go out and make disciples.” He will exhort and encourage us with biblical truth! Dr. Carpenter shares his powerful testimony with us and about key people in his life who disciple him to grow into the man of God that he is today. Some questions we will cover are: What is discipleship? Why should discipleship be important to us as Christians? And What are some practical ways that we can cultivate a life of being and making disciples? You all, it has been such a joy to talk more with Dr. Carpenter about discipleship. I am beyond encouraged by his testimony and by God’s work in and throughout his life and ministry. Dr. Carpenter had so much wisdom to share that we will continue the conversation on the next episode. You can find that now wherever you are listening to this episode. In our second half, we will hear about more stories of God’s faithfulness, and will also continue the discussion of discipleship.

||CleanLet's Talk about Anxiety | with Mindy Larsen||This episode I am talking to Mindy Larsen about all things anxiety. This topic is so close to my heart, in all the wrong ways. As anxiety is something that Mindy and I both are familiar with, we discuss how we, personally, remember to combat it with God’s Word. We also answer questions like: What would you say to encourage those of us who have struggled with this? What advice/insight can you give someone who doesn’t personally struggle with anxiety, but who has loved ones who do? How can they help their loved one? Mindy and I are praying that this conversation truly empowers you to lean into God and trust that what He says about you is true. More about Mindy: www.loveminblog.com Instagram @mindykaysl Facebook Mindy Larsen is a writer living in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.

||CleanFinding the Holy in the Ordinary | with Amanda Whiting||Hey friends, welcome to Unaltered Grace Podcast. I’m your host, Rachel Lawrence. I’m so delighted you are here to listen in on my conversation with Amanda Whiting. Because I value you all so much, and because you- listener- are the reason why this podcast is even here in the first place- I wanted to start sharing your words and reviews. Here’s Sarah’s iTunes review; “These conversations have such a great balance of being easy to listen to, but also filled with deep, deep truth. It’s like church with a friend at a coffee shop.” That’s my eager desire for us today, to be friends at a coffee shop talking deep, deep truths. So you’ll know our guest a little better, Amanda is a wife, mom, writer, podcast host, Pastor, and has the prettiest and most inspirational Instagram feed you’ll ever run across. Amanda writes ever so eloquently about how to see the Holy in the Ordinary and how to notice God in everyday life. You all, as we speak on this topic, I’m praying that you will see God in everyday, ordinary moments and that He may be glorified all the more in your life. “It’s this concept of: it’s not all going to be perfect. And I’m not always going to feel great about it. I also don’t think that’s what God calls us to- I don’t think God is saying, ‘I promise you a life that’s perfect and Instagram-beautiful,' right? That’s a highlight reel- I think that God is saying, ‘In all things- but especially in those ordinary; or even really hard and painful moments- my holiness is there because I have made you of me. You are my royal priesthood." You are absolutely missing out if you don't check out Amanda's words, photos, and life that she shares: Amanda writes at: This Abundance www.thisabundance.org Podcasts: Holy Ordinary Collective (iTunes) Instagram: @thisabundance Resources Amanda Loves: Planners Crystal Stine- Holy Hustle: Embracing a Work-Hard, Rest-Well Life: https://amzn.to/2RRDWYm Cultivate Journals by Lara Casey: Write the Word Bible Journal: https://amzn.to/2CftVPq||10/14/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanHonoring Your Parents in a Christ-Like Way | With Chelsea Stanley||Today on Unaltered Grace Podcast, I am speaking with Chelsea Stanley, who is a writer, wife, mom, and Redeemed Daughter of God. We will chat about how to honor your parents in a Christ-like way. Often, we think of the command to “Honor Your Parents” to apply solely to young children. But today we are specifically talking to adults about honoring your parents. Therefore, we will learn that this command is applicable life-long, and obeying this command can exude Christ-likeness. This conversation left me with feelings of forgiveness, repentance, and grace; along with equipping me with plenty of application to put into practice. I’m praying the same over you as you listen!||9/14/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSabbath Rest for Today's World | with Halie Ramsey||On today's episode, Halie and I talk about the struggles of practicing Sabbath and how countercultural it is. Sabbath is against what the world values, but we will discuss how God values- and how He has graciously created- rest. We will learn how we can walk in this rest and in light of the gospel as we fix our minds on who Jesus is and learn how He came to give us rest. Halie Ramsey is a freelance writer living in Colorado with her husband. Halie writes at halieramsey.com and is active on Instagram @halie_ramsey Halie's Sabbaths look like: "I usually spend them with Alexander going to church, to a farmers market + to a local coffee shop/go for a hike/relax the rest of the afternoon!"||9/2/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanWhy Does God Allow Pain and Suffering? | with Bruce Fredrickson||In this episode, I get the privilege to speak with Bruce Fredrickson, who was my childhood Pastor. Bruce is a retired US Army Chaplain, has served also in the Marine Corps, was an Assemblies of God Pastor, and is currently working as a Chaplain in a Cancer Unit. We tackle the age-old, top google-searched question of “Why does God”… allow pain and suffering? This question gets personal as Bruce has been diagnosed with cancer within the last year and a half. We will hear him speak about how God is faithful amidst life’s circumstances. We will be reoriented to a Biblical worldview that provides the groundwork for how we should approach this question as Christians. This conversation came at the most opportune time for me to listen and to take part in; and I’m praying the same over you, as well!||8/19/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

||CleanWalking and Pursuing Jesus in Everyday Life with Amy Hornbuckle||We acknowledge that walking with Jesus can feel like more of a pursuit than an 'easy' walk. On today's episode, I will chat with Amy Hornbuckle about how we, as Christians, are called to walk out our faith in our everyday lives. We will share about some personal struggles in doing this, and about how community with other believers can help teach us how to walk like Jesus did. We will hear Amy talk about the importance of spiritual disciplines (prayer, Bible reading, etc.) and how to practically begin and sustain those in our lives. It was such a joy to speak with Amy about this and I came away from this conversation feeling refreshed to "lace up my shoes" so to speak- and wholeheartedly follow Jesus!||7/22/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanIntuitive and Grace-Filled Eating with Aubrey Golbek||On this episode, I get the privilege to talk with Aubrey Golbek, a Registered Dietician. We will learn about God’s Unaltered Grace that He can give us through food and through eating habits. Aubrey speaks about intuitive eating, and really, just grace-filled eating. I learned so much from this episode, and I kind of walked away sort of paradoxically being okay with eating chocolate chips and Cheetos, but really also having a strong desire to glorify God in my eating habits and to take care of my body well for His glory||7/9/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanCommunity, Hospitality, and Loneliness with Bethany Barendregt||In this episode, I chat with Bethany Barendregt: wife, momma, and founder of Women Encouraged.

We both share about the many times we have desired greater community within the body of Christ and the ways that we have experienced this community. Bethany also talks about the topic of loneliness and she discusses how to cling to Christ in seasons of loneliness. You guys, she shares so much godly wisdom about a myriad of topics.
