Girl, You Wouldn't Recognize Me Now
This next birthday is coming sooner than I'd like it to, it will be my 40th birthday. I remember in my 20s thinking 40 was so far away, it seemed as though I would never reach it, but, here it is. Lately, I've been reading letters people write to their younger selves (it's a thing-google it). Originally, I thought I would create one as a blog post and read it on the podcast but the more I thought about it the more I realized I only had one thing to say to my younger self...Girl, you wouldn't recognize me now.For the entire post, visit SarahAnnSpeaks.com.

It's Time to Change Seasons
In the Old Testament, God promised to take the Israelites from bondage to prosperity. The only problem was, they would have to cross a wilderness to get there. God has made that same promise to us but many times, we get stuck in the wilderness. Alex Himaya says, "Don't let your mind keep you stuck in what was meant to be a season." Today, we're going to talk about changing seasons and how to get "unstuck" and keep moving forward.For more on this topic, visit SarahAnnSpeaks.com.

Obsessing Over Someone Else's Social Media Account
What does obsessing over someone else on social media really look like?It could like like an ex-spouse you just can't get over, it could look like wanting to constantly one-up the new wife, it could look like constantly checking the facebook page of the girl at work that got the promotion you wanted, it could look like watching every post of a former friend then posting "quotes" to say back at that person. It could look like a lot of things but mostly, it looks like a lot like self-destruction.Let's talk about it!

"I would never go to church again!"
Recently, I told a friend of mine a story about something that had happened to me at a local church. She reacted exclaiming, "I would never go to church again!" and, I'll admit, it shocked me because that thought had never occurred to me. This podcast is real (just like we like it) and goes through my personal journey of being kicked out of a church and having church leadership play a major role in destroying my marriage. And, I also talk about why I have never left the church and why my relationship with Christ is still going strong.
