The Godmother with Lisa Bevere

English, Religion, 3 seasons, 30 episodes, 20 hours, 11 minutes
Welcome to The Godmother podcast! Lisa Bevere believes every woman not only needs a godmother, but she can also be one. A godmother is someone who watches over us and transforms our seasons of hardship into triumph. Godmothers are those who recognize the gaps in our lives and call us higher. They see opportunities for growth, provide answers, and call out unrealized potential. Listen in as Lisa seeks to connect the goddaughters with the godmothers and watch how God uses relationships to bridge these gaps in our lives.

Restoring Healthy Intimacy with Debra Fileta

Let’s talk about sex! Wait, did I just say that? Yes, I did! As taboo as the church has made this conversation, the importance of talking about a healthy and beautiful sex life remains.

Join me and my friend Debra Fileta as we unpack some of the most important ideas related to Married Sex. We often hear about all of the things that hinder us in this area but restoring a sense of normalcy to the topic of cultivating connection is of equal importance to the latter.
