Outgrowing the Good Christian Girl
This podcast follows my faith journey, from a black and white view of God and the Bible, to a new understanding of Christianity. I hope my story can be a breath of fresh air for you too.
Season 1: My Journey: An overview (2021)
In short episodes, Season 1 introduces my faith journey, and why I started asking questions.
Season 2: The Hard Conversations (2022)
Season 2 creates space for conversations we don't often have in church circles, to investigate what Scripture says on some issues that I once thought were black and white. In this process, we especially look for two things: Fruit and intent. What is the fruit of the old vs new way of thinking? What is the intent of Scripture, and how does the historical and cultural context help us better understand Scripture's intent?
Featuring interviews with Sheila Gregoire (The Great Sex Rescue), Michael MacDonald (The Bible Project), Kat Harris (The Refined Woman), Carlos Rodriguez (The Happy Givers), Joshua Butler (The Skeletons in God's Closet), Matthew Vines (The Reformation Project), Brittney Moses (The Faith & Mental Wellness Podcast) and more!!
Season 3: A Deconstructed Life - coming 2024!
We're back!! (Well, almost.) In Season 3, we'll be looking at how to live when your understanding of faith has shifted. How do we honor God and the Bible, when we understand the Bible differently than before? How do we believe the Bible is intended to be interpreted? How did this affect parenting, dating, politics, and other decisions in our daily life?
I might change this title as we go, simply because "deconstruction" is a buzz word that means different things to different people, and because of that it can carry positive and negative connotations. But for now, this is the idea I'm going for: How do we move forward, even as we leave so much behind?
