Description

In whatever we’re doing—working, parenting, serving, suffering—it can be difficult sometimes to see through the fog of the circumstances of life and to know with confidence that God is there, that He’s working in us, and that He’s working through us. How do we live this life by faith? In "By Faith," author and blogger Christine Hoover asks this big picture question by getting into the details and daily lives of her guests: men and women who are walking forward by faith.

Recently my husband and I did a webinar for our church about singleness during quarantine, and the panel of singles we talked with have graciously allowed me to share it with you. In this webinar, we asked singles to answer the following questions: How has God grown you and shaped you during this time of quarantine?If you have roommates/housemates, how has this been a challenging time for the two of you? How has it brought you together? What specific lessons have you learned about living in unity that you could share with others who live with housemates?If you live alone, what have been the unique challenges for you? What have you learned that could benefit others who live alone?What are the best things you have done to maintain spiritual, emotional, and mental health?How have the challenges of singleness been exacerbated during this time? How have the gifts of singleness been clearer for you? How has your calling and vocation been challenged or renewed for you in this season? What idols or temptations has God revealed to you in relation to work?What can married couples / families do to help you or bless you as things begin to open up? Whether single or married, what they shared will certainly be a blessing and help to you.OUR CHURCHCharlottesville Community ChurchWITH ALL YOUR HEART Order Christine's new book, With All Your Heart, from:AmazonTargetBarnes & NobleBaker Book HouseChristianbook.comBooks-a-MillionChristian AudioDownload the With All Your Heart study guideREVIEW BY FAITH ON ITUNESCONNECTConnect with ChristineWebsite // Facebook // Instagram // Twitter // Books Sign up for Christine's monthly newsletter Music for By Faith was created by The Silver PagesArtwork for By Faith was created by Reed Harmon
Hi, friends! It's Christine. Recently my husband and I did a webinar for our church about marriage during quarantine, and I thought, “Why not share this with my podcast audience?” We talked about both the challenges and the opportunities we have in our relationships during this time, covering such topics as communication, conflict, handling emotions and stress, making time for one another with kids underfoot all the time, and best practices we can all incorporate to help our marriages thrive during this stressful time. We wanted to encourage the people in our church, but we also hope this encourages and helps you. Kyle and I hope you'll grab some time to listen with your spouse and that the questions we pose will spark great conversation for the two of you.OUR CHURCHCharlottesville Community ChurchWITH ALL YOUR HEART Order Christine's new book, With All Your Heart, from:AmazonTargetBarnes & NobleBaker Book HouseChristianbook.comBooks-a-MillionChristian AudioDownload the With All Your Heart study guideREVIEW BY FAITH ON ITUNESCONNECTConnect with ChristineWebsite // Facebook // Instagram // Twitter // Books Sign up for Christine's monthly newsletter Music for By Faith was created by The Silver PagesArtwork for By Faith was created by Reed Harmon

I really appreciate hearing from the guests that Christine Hoover chooses for each episode. I am always challenged and encouraged by the thoughtful questions and responses. This is a great podcast for helping direct listener's thoughts toward what is absolutely good and true in the midst of painful situations. I am thankful for how God is using teachers like Christine and her guests to help us develop a Biblical framework for understanding the reality of suffering in our lives.
