Sometimes life gets so hard, we doubt that Jesus is still with us. Did he abandon us? Was our faith even real in the first place? Juli's guest today is Michele Cushatt, a woman who has endured the kind of physical pain that most of us will never know. And it took her to the depths of doubt and despair. If you're feeling beat-up by the world and disappointed in God, this conversation is for you.
Is God sexist? Does he value men more than he values women? If you've ever wrestled with this question, a quick look through a few books of the Old Testament can really trip you up! Why would God allow women to be treated so poorly at times? Juli sits down with Jo Vitale, an apologist with a specialty in sexism and the Bible, to make sense of the way women were treated in the OT and shed light on God's goodness in a fallen world.
The goal of motherhood is not to raise a perfect child. The goal isn't even to raise a Jesus-loving child. (Yep, you read that right.) Join Juli and her guests for a special conversation for moms of all ages and stages about the only way to become the moms we want to be.
The two biggest areas of conflict in marriage are sex and money. We talk a lot about sex on Java with Juli, but today we're talking about money! (Thanks, Covid-19.) Join Juli and her guests as they share how understanding your spouse's natural tendencies toward spending and saving can help you communicate better (and fight less) about money.
