When it seems like everything in our lives is crashing down, where do we turn? What is the handle we can grab onto when nothing else is stable?

This week on an extended edition of the podcast, we’re taking a deep dive into the book of Job…and we have a guest along for the ride! Join Andrew and Darien as they examine some of the amazing truths in the book of Job, from scientific facts, to descriptions of the power of God, to even how incredibly powerful the word of God really is! We’ll also share some personal testimonies, and more. Plus, we’ve got the kickoff of the Advent season, and a special announcement as we begin preparing for 2019–a special project you can get involved in! All that and more, on this episode of the Sharpening Character Podcast!

When the “daily battles” come up in our lives, what is our response? In the case of Ezra and Nehemiah, there’s a common action they took–they fought the battles in their lives, but from a unique position!

This week on the podcast, we’ve got our final Courageous Men of the Word episode of 2018! Andrew will be diving into the books of Ezra and Nehemiah, looking at how these two men “fought on their knees” and won the battles they faced because they fought with God taking the lead in the restoration of the Nation of Israel from Babylon. We’ll also look at some details of the timeline of the captivity, and how the Lord was working in the heart of the kings to perform His will in “HIStory.” Plus, we’ve got a surprise announcement about *next* month at the end of the episode you won’t want to miss! All that and more, on this episode of the Sharpening Character Podcast!

How big of an impact can the decisions we make when we’re young have on our lives? In the life of Daniel, it had huge repercussions for him…and an entire nation!
This week on the podcast, we’re taking a look at the book of Daniel in our Courageous Men of the Word episode for October!

SC: Episode 143

Have you ever heard the saying “I’m all good”? It’s a prevalent mindset…and one that can have dangerous consequences.
This week on the podcast, we’re delving into the book of Jeremiah in our CMOW episode for the month of September! Join Andrew as he looks at what could well be called the “climax” of the Old Testament and the judgement of the nation of Israel, as well as the glimmer of hope in redemption the Lord promises. He’ll also look at some lesson we can learn from this book, including watching for the mindset of “I’m good enough” and the danger that led the Israelites into. In addition to all that, we’ll talk about our ScriptureFocus verse for this month, more about our active contest, and much more.
That’s all on this episode of the Sharpening Character Podcast!

When you think about the Minor Prophets, what concepts come to mind? Judgement? Condemnation? Chastisement? What about Mercy, Hope, and Salvation? This week on the podcast, we’ve got our expanded CMOW Episode for the Month of August!
