When Your Spouse Stops Believing with Lisa Blevins - Ep. 25

In this episode Bethany gets to interview her sister in law Lisa Blevins. Lisa and her husband Nathanael  live in Fort Worth Texas with their two precious boys, Tristan and Logan. Lisa was born and raised in Canada, where she attended Bible School and met Nathanael. (you can hear his story in a previous episode) Today we talk about growing up in a strong Christian community, marrying someone with very different experiences, and walking the hard road of faith when you spouse stops believing. Lisa drops some powerful truth about being a “spiritual widow” within a church community. Lisa is the real deal, and we pray it’s an encouragement to women out there who have walked similar journeys or are walking alongside a sister who is.

An Honest Sibling Conversation with Bethany's Brother Nathanael Blevins - Ep. 23

In this episode Bethany gets to interview her brother Nathanael Blevins. Nathanael and his wife Lisa live in Fort Worth Texas with their two precious boys, Tristan and Logan. Nathanael grew up just 13 months ahead of Bethany, but their stories are as different as the journeys they have walked. Today we talk about being pastor’s kids, robbing banks, transitioning from prison to seminary, wrestling with faith, leaving faith, God’s pursuing, and a rebuilding of faith. There’s a lot in Nathanael’s story, and we pray it’s an encouragement to those who may be wrestling with faith, and helpful to those walking with friends and/or family who are wrestling with their faith.

In this episode Bethany interviews her soul sister Katrina Stevens. Episodes where we interview dear friends always include an extra dose of shared memories but also a whole lot of laughter! Katrina is a one in a million kind of girl, who is bubbly and friendly, but also isn’t afraid to talk about her past mistakes because she is covered in God’s grace. She tells it like it is, about living as a rebellious teen, to having an INCREDIBLE encounter with the Lord, having a hard first year of marriage and even talking about struggles with weight. You don’t want to miss this interview, Katrina is awesome!

Burnout & Boundaries with Kristine Rego - Ep. 18

Today Bethany interviews our friend Kristine Rego! Kristine is near and dear to us for so many reasons, but she is also one of the co founders of our girls conference, Simply Beautiful! (http://www.simplybeautifulconference.com/) Kristine is part of a church campus plant in Saratoga NY, and shares about what it looks like to uproot your life and how life looks as you help plant a new church! Kristine also talks openly and honestly about walking through an intense season of depression, anxiety and burnout, and how she took a month off of work to rest. Burnout, depression and anxiety aren’t things that most circles aren’t talking about, but a lot of people are walking through. We are so appreciative of Kristine for being transparent and vulnerable about her story and we hope it will encourage you as you run your race in your place.
