About
Have you ever walked through trial after trial questioning how much more you can endure? Have you ever doubted how in the world God would call you to something with your broken past lurking around every corner? Have you ever just doubted God? Well sis, this might just be the podcast for you. The Bible tells us that the storms of life are inevitable in this lifetime. I’ll dare to say that when you jump into the deep end with Jesus, that’s actually where the waters get rough. But the storm set out to drown you is the very storm that God will use to refine, chisel, and call you. In the Chiseled and Called podcast, Brittany Dawn is authentically raw about her walk with the Lord as she shares past struggles, biggest failures, and current uphill battles. This is a space where all are welcome and no story is too far past the point of redemption. Hey girl! I’m Brittany Dawn. A born and raised Texan, wife, foster mom, and founder of She Lives Freed. In 2019, I had a radical, unexplainable incomprehensible encounter with Jesus that would forever change my life. Since that night, no aspect of my life has looked the same. Since that pivotal moment four years ago, I have walked through excruciating seasons of pruning. I’ve lost everything and everyone, I’ve navigated divorce, walked through the flames of cancel culture, faced hardship, and found myself broken amidst heartbreak. Yet through every high and low, I can confidently say that my constant has been Jesus. That my constant always will be Jesus. And I’m here to encourage you that at the end of it all, if all you have is Him, He is all you need. I joke with friends that I skip the surface level talk and dive right in to the deep conversations over a cup of coffee… but truthfully, that’s what I’m here to do. And through it all, point your focus right back to the King. Think of each episode as a big sister talk. I’m here through your worst day, tilting your chin up towards the King and reminding you that you can, in fact, continue on. I’m here to point you to scripture that speaks truth when your circumstances shout otherwise. I’m here to remind you that your past is not too broken and you’re not too far gone.

Juicy Girl Chat with my Best Friends

Y'all seem to love the juicy girl chats... so we brought a microphone on our girls trip! We are on the fly with this one but I love how the Lord spoke through us. This was a little different, and a lot of fun. See how we navigate hard topics as friends, calling friends higher in love, edifying them, and listen to us push each other into our God-given callings. I hope you enjoy listening into our random girl chat, and see what daily conversations look like with us. If you guys haven’t heard by now, in the month of October I launched a new business called Hazel and Layne. Seeing what God has done so far… has absolutely blown my mind. If you don’t know what Hazel and Layne is, let me give you a twenty second cliff-notes version. In October 2022, I had a miscarriage that would forever change a lot of things in my life. But what happened next is something I never would have expected. In my most broken moment, the Lord birthed a beautiful new thing.

Have you ever thought that you found “the one,” only to find out they were afraid of commitment? Or maybe he was an unbeliever and you thought that you could be the one to “fix him” and lead him to Christ. Perhaps you’ve met a man who checks all the boxes – he has a walk with the Lord, a career, is good-looking and shows interest in you – but he doesn’t pursue you. Society has completely flipped the relationship between a man and a woman upside down. So in this episode we're talking all things dating, all things men, and why guys – even the men of God – are so afraid of commitment. My special guest, Branson, is someone who has been a little brother to both myself and to Jordan for the last few years. When I say that he is wise beyond his years, y'all! When he speaks, he demands respect in the most Christ-like way. I'm sure a few of you have seen his videos go viral on TikTok and on Instagram, he just has so much to say and it's so good. Here are a few reasons to listen to the entire episode with Branson aka Tre Valley:why Godly men are so afraid of commitmentthe fear of rejectiondating a non-believerhow men have become indistinguishable from God-like menConnect with Tre ValleyInstagramYouTubeSupport the showInstagramTikTokYouTubePinterestTwitterLemon8 Thank you so much for listening to this episode of Chiseled and Called.

Riots, Looting, Death Threats, and the Gospel in Dark Places with Russell Johnson

Do you find it hard to be courageous as a Christian in the times we're living in? More and more people are bowing to the opinions of others and to woke-culture instead of bowing to the cross. I get that standing up and using your voice makes you vulnerable to backlash, but guess what? Jesus Himself said, "If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you." With that topic in mind, I cannot think of a more perfect guest to have on for today's episode than Pastor Russell Johnson.Pastor Russell Johnson was born and raised in Seattle and though he spent the first part of his adult-life working in politics, God had other plans. In the summer of 2014, Pastor Russell and his wife, Marija, stepped out in faith to start The Pursuit. Their church started in a barn with no indoor plumbing, no heat, and broken windows, but God was up to something. In 2018, Pastor Russell and Marija purchased a former department store building and began a full-scale remodel, converting the space into a multi-use church, preschool/childcare facility, and outreach center. The Pursuit is a place where anyone can belong, everyone can contribute, and anything can happen.In this episode, Pastor Russell Johnson and I talk about how the pandemic exposed backwards values, that cancel culture is only going to get worse, and how a little courage goes a long way.Here are a few reasons to listen to the entire episode with Pastor Russell Johnson:being courageous as a christian in today's culturefighting back against cultural pressurehow God is working in churches around the worldConnect with Pastor Russell Johnson:WebsiteInstagramFacebookYouTubeSupport the showInstagramTikTokYouTubePinterestTwitterLemon8 Thank you so much for listening to this episode of Chiseled and Called.

Cancel Culture, Slander, and the Refining Fire

It’s easy to feel punished when you're in a barren place, isn’t it? I get it. It feels like you're being abandoned, right? Especially when you look around and you see all the things that are going wrong. Maybe you lost your job or your marriage ended, and now it feels like your best friend is a stranger to you. Perhaps you just got a negative doctor's report and are struggling to catch your breath. I’ve been there.  Unfortunately, that's life – even life as a Christian. We live in a spiritual world and are actively being attacked by the enemy. The good news? He can’t win because we walk in dominion, power, and authority by the Holy Spirit within us.  In today’s episode, I talk about the refining fire, navigating cancel culture, and a reminder that the Lord is always by your side.  Here are a few reasons to listen to the entire episode:- God can turn around the worst mistake you've made in life for His glory- when God walks with you into the fire, it's to release you from bondage that's holding you captive- life is not about living how you want to, when you want to – it's about living His waySupport the showInstagramTikTokYouTubePinterestTwitterLemon8 Thank you so much for listening to this episode of Chiseled and Called.
