There is nothing more exciting than a day at a theme park. The rides, the shows, the food. Its all just so exciting, but it's also a lot of waiting. In her Bible Study, Melissa Spolestra says "Following God sometimes feels like a day at a theme park. It has some exciting ups, some scary downs, and a lot of waiting in between." This week Dusty and Elizabeth discuss how they feel this sentence describes life in ministry and in marriage, especially in a replant/revitalization situation. They talk about some of the highs, lows, and waiting times they have experienced and how they managed to keep working in the waiting season. 

 

Grab a cup of coffee or tea, and join us as we discuss living through the highs, living through the lows, and working in the seasons of waiting.

Church is so much more than just being in the building on Sunday morning to hear the pastor preach. One of the great parts of being a member of the local body of believers is the opportunity to gather together throughout the week for continued growth and fellowship. It is also a great way to get out into the community. This week Dusty and Elizabeth discuss launching small group studies throughout the week as a way for the members of the church to fellowship and grow together. They also discuss ways to be reaching out to the community to fill needs on little to no budget.

Serving in vocational ministry is a challenge no matter where God may have led you. I can be an even bigger challenge with God leads your family to be members of your congregation as well.

It's no secret that people are always busy. This is no exception for ministry life. Sometimes in order to ensure that everything is handled the way it needs to be handled a little bit of planning ahead is necessary. When it comes to making sure your family is eating healthy, well balanced meals in a timely manner planning ahead is imperative. This week Elizabeth shares her meal planning method that helps to ensure the family is eating well and the budget is staying in check. 

On the other side of the microphone Dusty shares some resources he has used to help make his job in ministry more manageable. Dusty shares how he uses e-books and audiobooks to get his daily does of reading done. He also shares how he finds time to be  poured into through the use of sermon podcasts throughout the week so he isn't trying to pour into his congregation from an empty vessel.

Distractions are all around us. We live in a world where we are instantly connected to so many things around us and sometimes it is hard to take our eyes off the social media news feeds, the instant messages, and the funny or heartwarming videos right at our finger tips. But sometimes we have to stop, evaluate, and refocus in order to accomplish the tasks set out before us. This week Dusty and Elizabeth talk about some of the things they are distracted by (hello Facebook) and how they work to combat that in order to ensure they are living out a life that is glorifying to God. Refocusing isn't always easy but with a bit of help and some intentionality it can be done. 

 

Grab a cup of coffee or tea, silence social media, and join us as we discuss some of the things that distract us and how we can work to combat those distractions.

Ep. 025: Keep It Simple

"Bigger is better." 
"You have to have that Wow factor." 

These are phrases that are heard a lot but sometimes that is just not the case at all. Sometimes, especially in a church replant, trying to do the job God has called you to do requires a "less is more" kind of attitude. Same goes for finding ways and time to connect with your spouse in meaningful and significant ways. This week Dusty and Elizabeth talk about some of the simple things that they have done to stay connected with church members, move the ministry forward, and stay connected with one another. Sometimes the big, extravagant, fancy, and expensive methods aren't always the best used to get the job done. 

Grab a cup of coffee or tea and join us as we discuss some of the simple yet effective tools to stay connected with church members as well as with your spouse.

People are relational. That is how we are created, but sometimes it is necessary to set boundaries in order to ensure safe, healthy interactions. The problem is sometimes it can be really difficult to know when and where to set those healthy boundaries. This week Dusty and Elizabeth talk about the importance of setting boundaries both in your marriage and in the ministry. They talk about some of the pitfalls to avoid while doing so also. Setting boundaries isn't always the easiest thing to do but when it is done well and with a loving heart and mind set everyone benefits in the long run. 

Grab a cup of coffee or tea and join us as we discuss setting healthy boundaries in all the areas of our lives.

Ep. 023: Let’s Be Real

We are only 2 weeks into 2021 and it has already been a year for the history books. The pandemic still rages on and now what lawmakers and news outlets can only describe as an attempted coup has taken place right here in America. To say that emotions have run high over the last few days would be and understatement. Far to often in ministry and in marriage we like to pretend that everything is just fine and we hide or bottle up our emotions and feelings. But the truth is that is neither helpful nor healthy. This week Dusty and Elizabeth talk about being real and authentic with ourselves, with our family, and with our congregations as we attempt to navigate the confusion, frustration, hurt, and fears that we are all experiencing while remembering that God is still on the throne and God is still in control. 

Grab a cup of coffee or tea and join us as we discuss being real and authentic with the people around us in 2021.

Happy 2021! The new year is officially here. This week Dusty and Elizabeth dive in to the difficult topic of Spiritual Drought. Let's be honest, we all long to be as close to God as we can possibly get. We want to know we are walking hand in hand with the Lord, but the truth is at some point everyone goes through a season of spiritual dryness. These are the moments that we just don't really feel God's presence. We don't hear God's voice. We have little to no motivation to read the Word, pray, or even attend church or other gatherings with our brothers and sisters in Christ. These seasons are hard but when you make the conscious choice to continue on, one step at a time, day by day in time the season will end. This week Dusty and Elizabeth talk about some times in their lives they have dealt with spiritual dryness and how they found themselves coming out on the other side. 

Grab a cup of coffee or tea and join us as we discuss walking through a season of spiritual drought.
