#21: Christianity in the Age of Social Media
In the age of social media, what is the impact on Christianity? Is it creating opportunities for community, friendships, and growth? In this episode, I speak with an Instagram account phenomenon, with 104K followers, averaging 2.5M impressions and 75,000 content interactions per week. The account, Christians Who Curse Sometimes, has become a platform discussing difficult and controversial topics among Christians. The owner of the account is anonymous and in this episode I come to know him as “Mike.” He is in a unique position to have a pulse on the issues that Christians struggle with, and we dive deep into discussion. To say that this conversation was amazingly insightful is an under statement. I left with the questions in my mind: “Are Christians and churches using social media to its full potential, and how can we invite dialogue that opens pathways for growth, understanding, and better communicate among the Christian community?”

Sexy Saturdays #4: Keeping Love Alive After Marriage
Keeping love alive and vibrant after marriage can be a struggle and why this episode is so relevant. Guests, Justin and Lucie Holden, a young married couple, are keeping the spark alive. Through the sharing of their experiences, they give examples and tools to strengthen marriages and relationships. We talk about relationships during Covid and the impact lockdown had as two separate people spent every waking moment together. We discuss forgiveness, change in partners, drifting away from the love once shared, prioritizing each other, the importance of being open and vulnerable, and learning to celebrate differences rather than allow it to bring distance. From when to seek therapy, to meeting one another’s expectations, to intentional communication, to planning sex verses spontaneity, this episode covers a wealth of topics marriages encounter and offers encouragement, understanding, and hope for a great relational future.
