From World Champion Waterskier to Nationwide Prison Ministry

From World Champion Waterskier to Nationwide Prison Ministry

November 17, 2020

Kristi Overton Johnson started waterskiing professionally when she was a young child. She continued on for years later becoming a professional waterskier and even a world champion water skier. She competed all around the world, including Australia! So awesome!

She said she always knew God but didn't understand the relationship with Him very well. But God got ahold of her heart in the most awesome way when she went through a few serious medical issues followed by several surgeries. 

In the podcast, she tells us that’s when she took a line she had used for years to tell the person who was driving the boat while she skied behind: "Hit it!" She said when she would yell “Hit it!” to the boat driver, then the driver knew she was ready to ski and get off the dock. 

I love this! The same has been true in her walk with Jesus. She said "Hit it!" to Jesus and her life of loving Him has been one wild ride that she never dreamed of.
Now, Kristi speaks all around the nation in prisons and has a magazine that she founded and published that gets distributed in prisons. She tells us it doesn’t cost the prisons anything to have these magazines in their prison. If you or someone you know would like to have Victorious Living magazine in their area prison contact the team at the magazine in the link below for Victorious Living. 

To me, this story is crazy. But I have learned sometimes, that’s just how God works. Id never imagine Kristi having a prison ministry... Nationwide for that matter! God can do what we see as impossible and make it possible.

Also, Kristi shared Revelation 12:11 -- "And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. And they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die."

Let's overcome with Jesus!!

Here's a great worship song with this verse in it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8AB0vUU038

Also, we talked about Ephesians 3:14-21 ESV "For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, ..."

In the podcast, she shares her favorite verse that is helping her in this season and she tells us about how Luke 12:2-3 has played an impact.

"The time is coming when everything that is covered up will be revealed, and all that is secret will be made known to all.  Whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered behind closed doors will be shouted from the housetops for all to hear!" Luke 12:2-3 NLT

Also, we talked about Colossians 3:15-17 at the end to encourage you in your journey to seek peace, be thankful, and to do it all for God's glory: "Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. ... And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

It's just an awesome scripture that really pumps me up and I pray it encourages you!
Also, the book we talked about (which is a Kathryn Daniel recommendation is) called, "Who Moved My Cheese? : An A-Mazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life."

Myra Monroe is a wife, mother of two children, and pastor at Melrose United Methodist Church. She runs a mission called, "Anchored to Christ." She tells us in this podcast that she found out one New Years' Eve that she would have a baby girl and her baby girl would have down syndrome. She also tells us that in this hard season she experienced the best season of her life. That is God!

 

She shares Matthew 6:25 where it says to not worry. “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?"

 

She also encourages us to have fun in our faith and get outside and enjoy God's creation in fellowship! I love that!! And it's a good reminder, especially today!! :)

Be a Light with Sunny Lawrence from “Iron Cowboy”

Be a Light with Sunny Lawrence from “Iron Cowboy”

October 13, 2020

Y'all are going to LOVE Sunny Lawrence! She's one of those women you meet and instantly want to be best friends with. She is fun, happy, chill, and a go-getter.

When preparing for this interview, the first Bible verse that came to mind was Proverbs 17:22 which says, "A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones."

This conversation was medicine to my bones! This one is for the mommas who are praying for peace from Jesus in this season.

This podcast is also for the woman who is looking to bring more encouragement to her spouse with his goals and dreams.

My sister Sunny is WISE in that she has been there for her husband James when he wanted to go on a wild and challenging adventure across the nation to do 50 Ironmans in 50 states in 50 days. She didn't say yes let's do this now when James presented the idea... She said to wait first and then at the right time, they'd go all in. And they did. I love how she describes their conversation before they went on this wild adventure across the nation and then how they moved forward to accomplish a challenging goal together... with their five children! I told you she's awesome! Love this chick and yall will too. 

Be encouraged by my sister in Christ, Sunny Lawrence!

Being Called With Terri Merrick + Giving Everything to God from Tim Tebow’s Book “Through My Eyes”

Being Called With Terri Merrick + Giving Everything to God from Tim Tebow’s Book “Through My Eyes”

September 22, 2020

Terri Merrick is the Executive Director and Founder of the Pensacola Dream Center. Terri tells us it was after a mission trip to India that God put it in her heart to be on mission right where God had planted her, in Pensacola. Now she runs a mission that is doing weekly service to people who need it. Her mission, through God's guidance and help, provides food for the hungry, mentoring for those who struggle with addiction or who have been a victim of human trafficking and so much more. I love Terri. She isn't affiliated with any local church. She is all about unity. She is about JESUS and His Word. Terri serves the Lord. Be encouraged by Terri's chat and then at the end of this podcast I share some encouragement from Tim Tebow's book called, "Through My Eyes." 

Terri shares Hebrews 10:34-39 which says:

34 You suffered along with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions. 35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.

36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. 37 For,

“In just a little while,
    he who is coming will come
    and will not delay.”[f]

38 And,

“But my righteous one will live by faith.
    And I take no pleasure
    in the one who shrinks back.”

39 But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved.

We also talk about perseverance and giving everything to God from a small section of one of Tim Tebow's book's called "Through My Eyes." 

Talking to People About Jesus with Rodney P. Bensley, M.D.

Talking to People About Jesus with Rodney P. Bensley, M.D.

September 15, 2020

Dr. Rodney Bensley works in Murfreesboro, Tennessee as a vascular surgeon. He tells us recently the Lord put it on his hear to start talking to patients about their faith when it was appropriate. He tells us he has led one of his patients to Christ days before he passed away. Thank God for doctors like Dr. Bensley. Please keep him and his team in your prayers in this season of COVID-19.

Dr. Bensley says he and his family are leaning on Psalm 91 a lot in this season and they especially love, Psalm 91:7 which says -- "A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you." He says he is praying this scripture over his family and believing God will take care of his family.

Thank you, Dr. Bensley, for your time and for sharing what God has on your heart!
