The In Awe & Wonder podcast is to help women grow in Biblical literacy, discernment, sanctification, Christian living, and our awe and wonder of God.
To promote Biblical literacy, Bible study, and Bible interpretation, we will be discussing what’s in the Bible; reading verses & passages; doing Bible studies; talking about resources for study; hermeneutics; canonicity; sola Scriptura; and Bible memory.
To practice and grow in discernment and filter things through a Biblical lens with critical thinking – learning to pause to objectively analyze something before accepting it as true, we will be recommending solid resources; discussing Biblical theology and doctrine; occasionally analyzing current events, cultural issues, and things we see on social media.
To discuss matters of sanctification – how God grows us via progressive sanctification, though not achieving total sanctification while on earth – especially as it pertains to lessons learned through suffering, we will be discussing the attributes of God – learning Who He is; our identity in Christ – learning who we are in Him; the fruit of the spirit – qualities the Holy Spirit manifests in the life of the believer; and our salvation and eternal life to come.
To promote practical Christian living, we will occasionally discuss things such as ways to share the gospel; raising teen girls in a godly way; tips for moving long distances; stewardship by ways of meal planning, grocery tips, and thrifting; how to find a good church; doing ministry in the local church; friendship; and marriage.
To raise awareness of the degree of awe, wonder, and reverence we should be giving to God, we will be making sure our focus and recognition is on the Creator instead of the creation and practicing the praise, thanksgiving, and obedience we ought to give to God as we glorify Him and enjoy Him forever. We will give proper authority and sufficiency to God’s Word; work on our prayer lives; recognize the beauty in nature; recognize common grace for all, and the means of grace for Believers; blessings we may have; people that God puts in our lives; and recognizing our responsibility to live holy lives.
Typical episodes will include Bible study, Bible memory, praise, prayer, the gospel, and a sprinkling of the attributes of God, stories of martyrs, stories behind our hymns, and promoting other podcasts, ministries, and resources. We may do book clubs from time to time, where I will announce a book, whomever wants to read it can do so, we will discuss on social media, and I will discuss some of the topics from the book on the podcast. We will do Bible study in the same way, by announcing materials and passages to study, whomever wants to participate can do so, we will have discussions on social media, and I will cover some of those topics on the podcast.
I am not a theologian, have not attended seminary, and do not claim to know more than others. I am learning and growing along with everyone else. Come along with me to study and learn.
Note: Our first Bible study will be the book of Philippians. After this series drops, there will be one Intro to Philippians in mid-January. Our study will run for 8 episodes over February, March, April & May.
