"Unstoppable" Author Chat with Christine Caine

Christine Caine is an on-fire evangelist, a powerful preacher, and the author of five books including Undaunted and Unstoppable, and a blessed mum to Catie and Sophie. She and her husband, Nick, founded The A21 Campaign which is an anti-human trafficking organization that fights slavery the world over. Christine’s passions are: evangelism, building the Church, freeing slaves spiritually and physically, she’s a devotee of coffee, and a beach girl like me.

We had such a great chat on FaithGatewayLIVE! I've been a huge fan of Christine for years because of the heavy anointing on her life and ministry and the passion with which she preaches and lives, so this was a pinch-me experience!

Highlights of the Chat:

  • Christine's story of healing from cancer
  • Winning the battle with fear
  • Obeying God despite heartaches, disappointments, fears, etc.
  • Who is called to run the "divine relay"
  • How to prepare for running your race
  • How to choose which passion to run with
  • Battling fear, rejection, and doubt to fulfill your purposes in Jesus Christ
  • The story of the beginning of the A21 Campaign
  • A sneak peak at Propel - for leaders in the marketplace
  • Being a Daniel in the midst of darkness
  • The power of the unified Church to reach and help the world
  • How to live the life that Jesus Christ has placed you on earth to live

"The Best Yes" Author Chat with Lysa Terkeurst

Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to Me. Get away with Me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me - watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with Me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly. — Matthew 11:28-30 (The Message)

Are you living with the stress of an overwhelmed schedule and aching with the sadness of an underwhelmed soul? 

I am the worst blogger! And, Lysa's right... it's mostly because I am overwhelmed with all the busyness of being a full-time single mom (the hardest-BEST job in the world!) with a full-time job! I should have posted this blog a month ago, but I've let my little blog gather dust over here instead. The other day I picked up The Best Yes again and remembered this great conversation we had that I'd love to share with you!

It was such a treat to chat with author Lysa Terkeurst of Proverbs 31 Ministries on FaithGatewayLIVE. If you don't know Lysa, she is a wife to Art and mother of five like me, including two adopted sons from Liberia, Africa. She’s a teacher, a preacher, and she serves and encourages women all over the globe through P31. Among many titles, she’s the author of Becoming More Than a Good Bible Study Girl, What Happens When Women Say Yes to God, Leading Women to the Heart of God, and one of my personal favorites Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions.

Highlights from the Author Chat: 

  • The 3 steps to unrush your schedule 
  • How not to miss sacred, God-ordained moments! 
  • The 2 Most Powerful Words 
  •  How to avoid "Analysis Paralysis" 
  • The 5 Parts to Making a Decision
