97 | "I'll Be Happy When..." | How to Live Faithfully in an Overachieving World
This conversation felt like a chat between close friends over a cup of coffee and was like therapy for my soul. Mary Marantz has a beautiful, poetic way of speaking and is the author of Slow Growth Equals Strong Roots:Finding Grace, Freedom, and Purpose in an Overachieving World Mary shares her story of growing up in a trailer and working her way up to attending an ivy league school and receiving a book deal - and how none of that ended up satisfied the constant pressure she places on herself to achieve. We discuss how this constant desire to feel seen in our world prevents us from truly seeing others, how celebrating the wins of the people in our lives heals our own hearts and how the desire to achieve should always be rooted in a purposeful work for God’s kingdom.

David Erdman is the author of The Ten Commandments of Marriage: Secrets of A Divorce Lawyer and you guys, I really loved this conversation.

He talks about the #1 thing to look out for before getting married and one of the #1 causes of divorce (and it isn’t always finances or adultery) He shares the difference between a man and a woman when it comes to infidelity, helpful ways to revive a broken and hurting marriage and why in-laws have one of the greatest impacts on a relationship I am gleaning his wisdom today and pray that you do, too.

In Episode 3 of the Money and Christianity Series, Lindsey and Jesse Maestas have an honest conversation about tithing, investments, saving, and the prosperity gospel with Lindsey's in-laws, Catherine and David Maestas. So much of the knowledge that Lindsey and Jesse received and implemented about stewarding money as a Christian came from what they saw Catherine and David doing. The Maestas' talk about their choice to live small then so that they can live well now and how investing in real estate early on in their marriage set the path for their successful financial future. They discuss how to be a good steward with a compassionate heart while also discerning how, when, and whom to give to. David and Lindsey hone in on how the prosperity gospel diminishes the weight of Christ's life and Jesse shares why and how our perspective of heavenly treasures should vastly outweigh the blessings and rewards we pursue on earth.

Money & Christianity Ep. 1: 7 Ways to Steward Your Finances Wisely
I'm BACK! Thank you all so much for your grace during my sabbath rest. It was SO needed. On today's scripture-packed episode, Lindsey Maestas discusses the importance of stewarding your money wisely and having a solid money mindset as a Christian. She shares her own struggles with finances and the ways that she and her husband have grown together in their knowledge of making wise decisions early on and what they have learned along the way. We are (thankfully) moving away from a time in our world when pay transparency, pay equality and debt were just not discussed and we are moving INTO a generation where we have an openness about money. I believe that this is leading us toward further success and wisdom in regards to our salaries, our savings and our investments. Jesus Himself emphasized the importance of being faithful with what you have throughout scripture. He promises to provide. Are you trusting Him? Do you truly believe that God will provide for your needs? Let's talk about it! Sign up for The Social Media Marketing Academy and The Online Course Creation Academy! Launching April 4th!!

86 | Why a Child-Centered Marriage Will Hurt Your Family with Jesse Maestas
It's easy to end a long night of bedtime routines and go your separate ways from your spouse to find some rest and relaxation. It's easy to love and protect our little ones so much that we lose sight of the needs of our spouse. But when a family is not structured the way that God has designed it to be, it begins to create a slow drift that will eventually drown a marriage. P.S. You guys, it's time! The Wife Project Course: From Roommates to Soulmates is HERE for the FINAL LAUNCH! Don't miss it! Fight for a happier, healthier marriage in 2022 - it begins with you because nobody else will do it for you. In a society that treats our marriages as disposable, we have to do the hard work & fight in faith to fulfill God's beautiful design of marriage. The easy way out is very rarely the best way out. On today's episode, Jesse and I share our own experiences with the damage caused by a child-centered marriage after we had our first son. We discuss the moment that we were called out on it and what we have learned from that point. We share practical wisdom on how to restructure your family dynamic, or simply strengthening it, and why this design is created to help us, not hurt us. We pray that this conversation helps your marriage immensely and causes you to seek Jesus in the way that He wants to shift your family focus and design.

85 | Following God When Your Spouse Doesn't: The Spiritually Dry Marriage with Jesse Maestas
Faith and leadership aren't always linear. My husband, Jesse, has struggled for years with his faith, his understanding of God's role in his life and also with his role as the leader of our family. There were many days in which I struggled with feeling deceived by him, because the faithful man that I dated was not the struggling man that I was married to. As a wife and mom, I have personally taken over the leadership role for many years in taking my boys to church, reading the Bible, praying over them and more. God has been drawing Jesse in recently in a way that I have never seen and we are both realizing how much Jesus has taught us along the way. In this honest conversation, Jesse and I discuss how to navigate a spiritually dry or unbelieving spouse, the list of unhealthy expectations that I had coming into marriage, the ways I hurt Jesse and helped Jesse when he was doubting God and more.

83 | Our Infidelity Story: Same-Sex Attraction, Sexual Addiction & A Redeemed Marriage
Josh and Jaelyn Harrel (@restoredliving) are boldly sharing their story of infidelity, betrayal, confusion and God's redeeming grace. I know that not every story ends this way, I have had relationships near and dear to me that ended after an affair, but I have also been very fortunate to see the true reconciliation that Jesus can bring after very real betrayal. During today’s conversation, Josh and Jaelyn discuss the hardship that they faced when Josh had a deep, emotional affair, that included photos and videos, with someone of the same sex. The Wife Project: From Roommates to Soulmates launches on November 7th! Sign up for the waitlist here! They discuss the impact that pornography and sexual addiction has on a marriage, but most importantly, the very real work that Jesus has done within their marriage since that point. They discuss the healing process, the struggle in pursuing intimacy after the fact, accountability and how Jesus has been the healer of their hearts. I pray that, for anyone who has walked through the tragedy of marital betrayal, that you will also see the genuine HOPE that comes with the death of Christ on the cross for our sins and brokenness. It does not have to be the end of your story. For those of you wives who may be struggling within your marriages, whether it is from small or large betrayals, or if you just want to grow closer with your spouse and become best friends again, I want to remind you that The Wife Project Course: From Roommates to Soulmates will have its FINAL launch on Nov. 7th!
