Click here to listen to 'The story we tell ourselves' podcast!

The story we tell ourselves is a podcast about the narratives we create, live, grieve, and hope by. Every two weeks we have a new guest bring their expertise on topics such as emotionally healthy spirituality, burnout in ministry, deconstructing and reconstructing faith and church leadership in a politically charged environment. We address the tensions we face in ministry and in life as women, leaders, Salvationists and most importantly as followers of Jesus.

Safe Spaces, Power and Vulnerability in the Church

Why isn't the church a safe place?

Women's Ministries

As a body of Christ followers, may we choose to be intentional with the power that God has given us. May we speak out against injustice and create spaces for those who have been harmed in the name of Jesus to be heard.

"Never in my life before have I voiced the words to call for an emergency line: “Peter, I think we need to call 112,” I told my husband.

I could see, but only vaguely through pin-pricks of blue, red and yellow stars. There is not much I recall after that."

From Broken to Beautiful

A Salvationist from Alberta shares her story of finding hope after miscarriage.

Women's Ministries

"For those of you reading this who have not experienced this type of loss, be prayer warriors for those who are. Know that pregnancy and infant loss is much more prevalent than we realize. If you have experienced this loss, my heart aches for you, no matter if the loss was years ago or recent. I pray that you experience God’s perfect peace. I have found healing in sharing our journey with others."

A Deeper Well

Reflections on COVID-19, the way of Christ and living into a new season.

Women's Ministries

I could write pages and pages about the “lessons learned” during the last 19 months—about the ways in which the Holy Spirit moved and spoke, revealed and uncovered, shook and stirred myself individually and the world collectively. I have a feeling that on a crisp October day, with a big mug of coffee and a journal in hand, you could write pages and pages as well.

Where do you find Peace?

Women's Ministries
Where do you find deep, internal, restful peace? Is it a place or a person? What makes the place or person peaceful? Where does peace originate, and what is its nature? Is it contingent upon outside factors? Is it sustainable? Does it sustain you? Peace is an important factor, if not the top priority in our lives. We crave it every one of the 52
