028 Terese Talk: God’s Garden



This is a beautiful time of year. There is so much that is new and fresh, that it can’t help but remind you of how God renews us day by day. One of my favorite things to do in the spring and summer is garden. I’ve learned a thing or two over the years. I’ve also had a lot of time to think while digging in the dirt. It’s a great place to clear your mind and pray. Let’s till up some of the spiritual lessons I’ve gained in God’s Garden.

027 Terese Talk: Moms of the Bible



Mother’s Day isn’t something that was celebrated in the Bible. You can thank Hallmark for that. But God does give us some great examples in the moms He used in His Word. And their traits are something we can strive for whether we have children or not. It’s patience, faithfulness and blessings we’ll be looking at in this episode.

26 Terese Talk: Never Say Never



Never say never. You’ve probably heard that phrase before. Never is a powerful word. Because it’s absolute. Definitive. No wiggle room with never. So when never shows up in the Bible, we need to pay attention. It’s God’s way of being firm. Not wavering in His promises. In this episode, Terese goes through the Bible, with verses of God’s promises of “never” and “always.”

25 Terese Talk: Questions Jesus Asked



Have you ever asked the question, “What would Jesus do?” Well, Jesus loved to ask questions. When you see a question mark in your Bible, in red letters, it’s a good habit to ask your own question, “What is Jesus really asking?” Usually there’s a deeper meaning—a bigger concept He is trying to get us to think about. So, let’s look at some of the things He asked and learn more about His heart.

24 Terese Talk: Book of Obadiah



It’s a teeny tiny book, with some pretty big lessons. Right between Amos and Jonah lies the Book of Obadiah. There’s some history and some application waiting in these 21 verses.

23 Terese Talk: Is It In the Bible?



When you hear things like:
● A whale swallowed Jonah.
● This too shall pass.
● There is only one way to get to Heaven.
Do you know what’s true and what isn’t?
This week, Terese digs into the Bible, and into some popular sayings to find the truth.

22 Terese Talk: I Am In Control



This week we celebrated “I Am In Control Day.” But are you? And are you supposed to be? The times we are in might be leaving you feeling a little uncertain—maybe worried. In the past year, you might have tried to take control of your health—your finances—your kids’ schooling—your emotional well-being. But have you really been in control? No way! This has been the most out of control year any of us have experienced. We can’t control things like how a virus spreads, or how that impacts the economy. We can’t control what the school district decides to do with hybrid or in-person learning. And we can’t control how much toilet paper is on the shelf of the grocery store. But in all of those circumstances, we can control one thing: us. And how we react to it all. Take just a few minute and hear more of what Terese has to say about control.

21 Terese Talk: Ultimate Date Nights



When was the last time you dated your spouse? I know. Pandemic. TBH we probably weren’t great at dating before COVID. Thanks to time, budget and distraction. But connecting with your husband is super important. So we’ve got help. And it’s called Jay and Laura Laffoon. You may have seen them online, or at one of their Ultimate Date Night events.

20 Terese Talk: Forgiveness



When someone wrongs you, it might seem inconceivable to offer then forgiveness. But when you forgive, it really benefits you as much as your offender. In her book, “Forgiving What You Can’t Forget,” Lysa TerKeurst points readers to Jesus as the source of all the forgiveness we could ever need. Listen as Terese shares her thoughts from the book and her experience leading a small group study of it.

For more on the book, listen to Terese’s interview with Lysa in Episode 9.
