Lost & Found - Kendra Fletcher

Aired On: Monday February 20, 2017

Kendra Fletcher, homeschooling mom of eight, took pride in having it all together—the right schooling, the right theology, the right church, and the right meal-planning, home-managing, keep-it-all-together parenting. Then it all fell apart. Three of Kendra’s children were taken to the brink of death in a period of 18 months. Join Kendra on Steve Brown, Etc. for a discussion of her new Key Life/New Growth Press book, Lost & Found: Losing Religion, Finding Grace. You'll see that doing life and religion “right” is a poor substitute for a living relationship with a loving God. ...

Ladies, Lust & God’s Love - Sarah Taras

Aired On: Monday January 30, 2017

Given all the sermons calling out guys on sexual sin, one might think that's a problem unique to men. But ladies struggle with lust too. And when that isn't acknowledged in our churches, it can leave women feeling a double condemnation. They're not only burdened with guilt because of their sin, they also experience the shame and isolation of thinking they're the only women with that sin. Join Key Life author Sarah Taras on Steve Brown, Etc. for a conversation about how God's unconditional love freed her to get honest about her...

All in on Grace - Matt Johnson

Aired On: Monday January 16, 2017

Forgiveness is a nice idea until someone hurts you badly enough to need it. But our demands for changed behavior before we forgive will clog our arteries with bitterness and kill relationships.

They also talk some about his upcoming book, Getting Jesus Wrong: Giving Up Spiritual Vitamins and Checklist Christianity. Matt is a husband, a father to...
