    Labels

    The Faith Revolution Podcast with Kirk & Jenn Walden Episode Transcript Kirk: It’s great to have you on the podcast, and today is one of those uncomfortable ones. We’re going to be talking about labels. Jenn: Labels. This topic has been something on my heart for some time now. I just feel like there’s a lot to uncover in this topic for us, as men and women of faith. Kirk: There is. And I look at it as labels we put on ourselves, I want to talk about that. Labels we put on others, and then there is a label I believe God wants for us. So I want to jump…

    The Faith Revolution: What is Faith?

    Welcome to the Faith Revolution Podcast with Kirk and Jenn Walden. It’s great to have you with us. In this episode, we are considering the seemingly simple task of asking the question… What is faith?  We challenged ourselves with some new and simple perspectives on faith during this morning coffee discussion. Getting Started As we entered this discussion, Jenn and I considered the following. . . How is faith defined by most Christians? How have we personally defined faith and how would we express the concept to others? In considering the meaning of Immanuel (God is with us)**, how do both the name and life of Jesus form the foundation…

    The Quarantine: Picking Up Rocks

    Gravity Hits The first day I realized “Oh! We’re in Quarantine,” and the gravity of everything started hitting me, I had the brilliant idea to venture outside and start picking up rocks. Why we have so many rocks is another story, but I’m just telling you we have a lot of rocks. In fact, in this video you can see one of my many piles. Not content to complete this important work alone, the whole family is now involved in picking up rocks.  So,  as a global pandemic spreads, and it feels there is literally nothing I can do  (except honor the #stayhome mandates),  picking up . . . rocks…

    The Quarantine: My Playlist

    Music has always been a personal source of joy, inspiration, and healing. In this season of Quarantine, I am definitely leaning on music for some peace of mind.  Admittedly,  the entire Trolls movie soundtrack and a plethora of Disney tunes are played regularly, along with whatever 60’s and 70’s throwbacks Kirk gets in the mood to hear. For example, our kids endured “I Know a Place” by Petula Clark and “Daydream Believer” by the Monkees this week.  But, I didn’t include any of those in this playlist. This is my personal playlist to keep my heart upbeat and inspired. By the way, I am so bothered that people do not…

    The Quarantine: Getting Dressed

    Coping I have been thinking about the varied ways we are all coping through this season of Quarantine. Everything from humor to media overload, identifies our need to make sense and mentally get on the other side of this historic crisis.  One of the personal behaviors that has been keenly important to me during this season, is taking time to get dressed every. single. day.  So while other women are heroically on the front lines providing food, healthcare, and other necessities of life, I’m doing the important work of dressing up and sitting in my house.  The Pajama Party As I have witnessed so many women giving up on all…

    Beautiful Jesus Girl

    By JENN WALDEN – Hi. I’m Jennifer, but friends call me Jenn.  I was born in Nashville,TN, in the buckle of the Bible belt. I currently live in the outskirts of  Nashville, and still find myself questioning if NashVegas is truly a thing. Each time I venture downtown, I realize that it is indeed a thing.   Growing Up: Not Beautiful  I was raised by wonderful parents to be a beautiful, southern Jesus loving girl. Yet as I grew up, I didn’t feel beautiful; inside or out. More than anything else, I hungered for the approval of God, my church, and my family. Yet, I failed more times than I can…
