    Therapy and Theology

    Have you ever looked at a situation you’re facing in utter disbelief and thought, "How will I ever get over this?" Lysa TerKeurst understands. After years of heartbreak and emotional trauma, she realized it’s not about just getting over hard circumstances but learning how to work through what she has walked through. Now, she wants to help you do the same. That’s why Lysa teamed up with her personal, licensed professional counselor, Jim Cress, alongside the Director of Theological Research at Proverbs 31 Ministries, Dr. Joel Muddamalle, to bring you "Therapy & Theology." While Lysa, Jim and Joel do tackle some really hard topics, you’ll soon find they're just three friends having a great conversation and learning from each other along the way.

    Lean & Mighty Podcast

    Lean & Mighty Podcast

    Welcome to the Lean & Mighty Podcast with your host Evan Anderson. In this podcast, we bridge the gap between fat loss & faith. We are different from other fitness & nutrition programs in that we are holistic in our approach found in 1 Thess 5:23-24. We believe that the Word of God is our foundation for motivation to be physically fit. As a Christian man, you are called to greatness, created for dominion, & built for battle. Our goal here is to break that cycle of diets, deprivation, and defeat so that you can go from being burdened and bound to achieving a lean and strong body that enables you to be the powerful man God created and called you to be.
