S7 Ep9 - Lifted From The Rut: Life After Addiction And Prison - Rob Lohman
Alcohol was always around Rob from a young age, even at youth group and church functions. So when his insecurity as a teen increased, so did his consumption, which eventually led to a drug and alcohol addiction, as well as gambling. For over a decade Rob lived a life away from God, until he could no longer ignore God’s clear messages that it was time to come back to Him. After success in recovery programs, Rob was sober but still had not dealt with his mental health struggles or gambling addiction, which almost took away his wife and young children and landed him in jail for arson. In the midst of his incarceration, Rob was able to begin to understand his identity in Christ and was miraculously released back to his family after only serving a fraction of his sentence. Hear the amazing journey of how God is making beauty from ashes in Rob's life; and how he uses the worst experience of his life to serve as a Christian Interventionist, Addition & Recovery Coach, Author & Podcaster.

S7 Ep7 - How A Season In The Desert Disrupted Her Picture Perfect Christian Life - Emily Copeland
As a young woman from the midwest, Emily had everything she ever dreamed a Christian could have - a pastor for a husband, beautiful children, a ministry of her own, a tight community in her home church, living in sunny southern California, amazing friends, wonderful church leaders as mentors... and then everything changed. After being betrayed by their church leaders and asked to lie to their friends in the congregation, Emily and her family were moved to a literal desert where her faith was tested. In this metaphoric “desert period” she was angry at God and cried out to him in her loneliness and desperation. Hear how God answered her and showed Emily that in stripping away everything, He became the only thing she would ever need. Now, Emily knows that God was taking her shallow, picture-perfect faith to a deeper level that would equip her to minister to other women.  Commercial Spot: If you feel led to help support the podcast you can donate via Venmo at: @ohmygodpod.

S7 Ep3 - God's Healing Through Domestic and Sexual Abuse - Megan Stewart
Many kids who grow up in faith simply go through the motions, so when they reach adolescence the ways of the world can create their identity versus them finding their identity in Christ. Megan fell into this trap and sought validation through her popularity and the attention she got from boys. As a young woman, she was seduced by a man who abused her and they had three children together. Like many victims of domestic violence, Megan kept hoping things would change - that he would get a job, that he would care for their kids while she worked, that the money would stop disappearing, that he would treat her with respect. Although Megan herself could not find the courage to leave on her own, she credits the power of the Holy Spirit acting through her 5 year old son to tell the truth about what was happening while Megan was away at work. From the precision and clarity from her son about neglect and sexual abuse that her husband was inflicting on their children, to child protective services, to the support from her family, to the court system & sentencing, God’s hand was in it all. Hear how Megan’s relationship with God was restored and how she and her children are being healed from a parent's and spouse’s worst nightmare.

S7 Ep1 - Finding Jesus On A Street Corner To Serving Society's Most Marginalized - Lindsey Fischer-Sullivan

S7 Ep1 - Finding Jesus On A Street Corner To Serving Society's Most Marginalized - Lindsey Fischer-Sullivan
From a girl who was taught not to look homeless people in the eyes, to a young woman who has dedicated her life to serving those living on the streets, Lindsey’s story is one of complete transformation, obedience and increasing desire to share God’s love to those in society who are often ignored. It all started when she responded to an invitation to hang out with a small group one night and their journey into the city to do street outreach. Sitting next to a crackhead, Lindsey took a look at her own life and gave it to the Lord at age 19, telling Him he could use her however He wanted. Over the next decade, she passionately served the drug addicted, the homeless and eventually those entangled in street prostitution. As God opened doors, Lindsey was not always willing to walk through them, yet He increased her passion and the weightiness she felt in her heart to serve the marginalized in our society. Eventually, Lindsey founded All Worthy Of Love, a justice focused non-profit that reaches out to men and women enslaved by street prostitution. Hear how God is using the group to be the hands and feet of Jesus here on earth on the streets of our communities.

S6 Ep6 -  How Johnny Cash Ushered A Teenage Atheist Into Candidate For Evangelical Pastor - Matthew Larson

S6 Ep6 - How Johnny Cash Ushered A Teenage Atheist Into Candidate For Evangelical Pastor - Matthew Larson
As a kid, Matthew was interested in knowledge, contemplation and reflection; character traits that are still with him today as a 24 year old man. In 4th grade his tendency to dive deep into topics took him on a journey into studying Hitler, Stalin and the atrocities of World War II; which resulted in a complete disillusionment toward any good in humanity. As a self-described “misanthrope” (one who dislikes humanity and doesn't want to be around people) Matthew hit a low point in middle school when his self-loathing turned into depressive and suicidal contemplations. Until the music of Johnny Cash highlighted a real, not imaginary relationship with God and provided Matthew with the hope he needed to turn his spirit of inquiry to the Bible. After reading the Book of Revelation and the four Gospels in the New Testament, Matthew was brought to tears at the realization of his own sin, his need for a savior and just how gracious God is toward each of us. As he began walking in obedience with the Lord as a teenager, hear how Matthew was reluctant to follow his calling to be an evangelical pastor, yet is now in the home stretch of completing his requirements.

S6 Ep4 - A Spiritual Pilgrim Walking To The Beat Of His Own Bass - Connor DeFehr

S6 Ep4 - A Spiritual Pilgrim Walking To The Beat Of His Own Bass - Connor DeFehr
When Conner looked at the blood red moon and listened to his dad respond to his inquiry about the book of Revelation, that was the moment when he felt the intersection of his faith with reality. From this childhood experience, Connor dove into understanding what people of other denominations believed and became obsessed with the bass as well. His tendency toward study in isolation, deep reflection and obsession to compose music stemmed from a sense of pride and led him to feel like even more of an outcast while in college. Throughout his young life he immersed himself in the theology of Southern Baptist - Presbyterian - Reformed - Pentacostal/Charismatic - Messianic Jewish - Eastern Orthodoxy all the while, desiring to learn truth through the scripture and obtain a closer relationship with God. In his decision to pursue a relationship with God versus a particular theology, Conner turned away from a career in music performance to one of music education which would take him on a journey to seminary, become a youth pastor, a worship leader and now a hospital chaplain. Hear how God was preparing Connor through his immersion in other denominations to companion people of diverse faiths as a chaplain and how Connor leverages the unique ability to speak in tongues to connect with God through prayer.
