Grace Over Perfection Podcast

On this podcast, we talk about…

the difference between looking like a Godly woman and actually living like one.

the reality of what we are capable of and what we are not.

how to experience grace through the only perfect one, Jesus, by applying the Word directly to our daily lives.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

2 Corinthians 12:9 ESV

Are you ready?

Every week, I will share an experience that so many Christian women go through and how God, through His grace, can use it to teach us to rely more on Him and less on ourselves. We will apply scriptures that will transform us into women who trust that He will make something beautiful out of the messes we make.

Bible application at its best!
Alison has an amazing gift of taking a scripture and make it relevant to today’s chaotic and hard to navigate lives.
I have used some of her other products and have grown as a Christian. I cannot wait to glean new insights into scripture that is relevant for us today.

I am a busy, audacious, outgoing, sometimes irritable, but always blessed, woman. Though I have been a Believer for over a decade, I stopped investing in my relationship with the Lord years ago and found myself discontent and angry. I didn’t WANT to be this way, but I just couldn’t “get happy!” 

It wasn’t until I started making time for God and His Word every day, praying to Him unashamedly and listening for His response that things started to change. 

I have come a long way in my walk with Jesus since then.  My hope is to encourage you to reclaim joy through your relationship with Jesus. Let’s do this together, friend.
