End of the Road...| End of Year Recap | More Than Conversation FINAL episode!

While filming this episode we had NO IDEA that God would later confirm that it would indeed be our last. We believe that the same way God puts it in our heart to start things, He also puts it in our heart to stop. Our podcast has not only been a blessing to our supporters but to each of us individually. It has helped us to grow so much closer to God and closer to each other. Though we are saddened that we have come to an end, we are so grateful to have created a space for believers to express themselves by being honest, open and transparent about their faith journey. We're all excited to see what God has in store for each of us. Until next time...MTC on 3 🖤

Who Are You? | Identity, Change & Godly Confidence | More Than Conversation Ep. 38

When it comes to figuring out our identity, one of the first questions we ask ourselves is “Who am I?” So many of us have made the mistake of turning to everything BUT God to find our true identity. We have allowed society to be the thing that tells us who we should and shouldn’t be. We’ve even let society tell us that it’s okay to stay the same when even though change is inevitable.In this episode, we share our thoughts on identity, going through life’s changes and walking proudly in the person that God has created us to be.

ACTing on faith | Faith without works is dead! | More Than Conversation Ep. 37

James 2: 26 - Just as the body is dead without breath, so also faith is dead without good works. We've all heard the saying "Faith without works is dead." For a lot of us, we probably didn't realize how important this statement was to our relationship with God. Faith is more than just some feeling...it requires action. We can all agree that life can throw some major curve balls our way. But even in the midst of our hardships, God has proven time and time again that He is able to do more than we can ask or think. In this episode, we talk about acting out on faith and share the importance of trusting God in the midst of our struggles.

What's Stopping You? | More Than Conversation Ep. 35

What's stopping you from fully committing yourself to your relationship with God? Is it your love for entertainment, your lack of trust or your need to always be in control. Being lukewarm has become such a trend in the younger generation of believers. In today's society, it has become really hard to tell believers and non-believers apart because if we're being honest, our lives look pretty similar. In this episode, we share some of the things that we feel may be holding us back from committing to God and how those things affect our walk on a daily basis.

Dare To be Different! | More Than Conversation Ep. 27

Our Father 🙏🏽 | The importance of prayer.

Prayer is one of the most important parts of our relationship with God. Sometimes we tend to over think it all because of the ways others have prayed before us. The truth is there is no perfect way to pray. We can pray at any given moment of any given day. God just wants us to show up and genuinely share our hearts with Him because He's always present and listening. So whether your prayers are big or small, long or short.. Just make sure that you make it a point to spend time talking with God.

Come As You Are | Perfection is OVERRATED 🤷🏽‍♀️

So many of us have been fooled into believing that we have to be completely cleansed of all sin before pursuing a relationship with God. News flash: Come as you are is NOT a ploy meant to trick you into becoming a Christian. Jesus died for each and every one of us as we were and as we are now. It is by His grace, not our works that we become saved. Nothing we've done and nothing we currently do can separate us from the love of God. We just have to be open and willing to receive these gifts as freely as they are given to us. So, whether you've sinned two minutes ago, two days ago, two weeks ago.. God loves you and wants nothing more than for you to come to Him with all of your hurt, pain and struggles, AS YOU ARE, so that He can make it all better. We should never subject God to our limited human thinking because it is not about who we are but absolutely about who HE is.

How many times have you heard the saying "Expect the unexpected" or "Fewer expectations lead to fewer disappointments"?

From boys to MEN | Our thoughts on what young men REALLY need.

Society has clouded the minds of too many up and coming young men! If anything, society has set them up for failure. Men are expected not to have or show emotion, all while keeping everything under control. And let's not even get started on those double standards. Men are frowned upon for valuing themselves just as highly as women are taught to. In today's episode, we share our RAW feelings on the things young men truly need to grow and become the men that God has called them to be.

Numb to the Pain | Our thoughts on desensitization.

I think we can all agree that the media (especially social media) we regularly consume plays a major role in the desensitization of the population at large today. Social media and other forms of entertainment hold us hostage with distractions while simultaneously keeping us informed of world events. However, we can clearly see that today's society has become somewhat detached and indifferent as it relates to these same world events. In today's episode, we share our thoughts on desensitization and the roles the media and entertainment industries have played in numbing the pain.

Undervaluing a "Normal" Life | Hi! I'm Normal! (Part 1)

Hey you...IT’S OKAY! We know life can be really stressful at times. Why make it more stressful by focusing on the pressure that society can put on us to be the "big shot” and live the lifestyle of the “rich & famous”. It's okay to be content with where you are or to even be comfortable living a minimalistic lifestyle without all the glitz and glam. In this episode, we focus on being YOU and deciding what’s normal on our own standards.

Have You Taken the 'L'?

What's the biggest L you've ever taken? In today's podcast episode, we discuss the biggest L any of us will ever take. We use the letter 'L' to demonstrate what we should look like as believers when it comes to our relationships. As God's pours His love on us, we are supposed to open ourselves up to receive that love. In turn, this love should be used when loving ourselves. Most importantly, this love is what should be extended to those around us, thus making an 'L'. What does your 'L' look like? Maybe it's a lowercase 'l' and you haven't quite figured out how to extend it yet.
