Join Kaitin and Katie as they have their last recorded conversation before Kaitin Chappell becomes Kaitlin Rogers. In a special late night addition, Kaitlin and Katie have a good old fashion girls sleepover, connecting the generations one gab session and heart share at a time.

Check out #RoadtoRogers and Kaitlin Chappell and Caleb Roger's Wedding Website

Katie has the special privilege of being the Live Event Artist at Kaitlin' s wedding.

(You can check out Katie's art gallery to date here: https://psalm8110.com/art-gallery/ *although gallery is under construction and will have a new look soonsmiley

What a privilege and blessing for Katie to get to capture the moment on canvas for one who is a dear friend, a sister-in-christ and who has become like a daughter.

Laughter is good medicine and taking the time to connect on a couch, face to face, with coffee, or whatever is your jam, is priceless, powerful, and the gift of presence that keeps on giving!

Just like Kaitlin prays that her wedding will be an encounter with God for all who attend, Katie and Kaitlin pray that this podcast invites listeners to encounter God for themselves and then sends listeners out looking to connect with the generations around them, while being plugged into the Source, the ONE connection, that is a MUST in order to fuel meaningful relationships.

“I Will Rejoice” by Deanna Wood

A blank canvas is a beautiful metaphor for marriage. Different mediums, colors, textures etc... come together building something new, one brushstroke at a time. Mess-ups happen along the way but new brushstrokes come in to make masterpieces out of those messes.

New beginnings are always possible in painting and in marriage. Layered paint adds depth and layers of life add lessons that are priceless when learned and applied.

The conversation took a turn and the girls camped around God's Word and Katie's latest canvas, "The Angel of Gethsemane".

*Below is the poem God crafted in and through Katie in response to Jesus's time in the Garden of Gethsemane just before His crucifixion and resurrection.

“The Angel of Gethsemane”

I bet the angels sang,

“Pick me! Pick me! Pick me!”

But Father chose just one

for GETHSEMANE.

The Darling of Heaven,

knelt down to pray,

Sweating blood in the garden,

what did HE say?

Did Father choose the angel,

whose singing was the best?

Or did HE pass out papers,

to see who aced a test?

Jesus was in anguish.

Could all of Heaven see,

The selfless sacrifice

in Gethsemane?

“Father remove this cup from me,”

Papa was all ears.

“But Dad, I want what You want.”

Heaven was in tears.

Did Jesus even notice

the angel by his knee,

A chosen host of Heaven

for Gethsemane?

What if you were picked,

to strengthen God’s Own Son?

Did the angel feel unworthy?

But said, “Thy will be done.”

God’s messenger at once,

was standing right beside,

The Lord of Lords and King of Kings,

the apple of God’s eye.

The angel does his job

and Jesus is revived.

Only to pray harder,

to Father He confides.

How long did the angel stay,

with Jesus on that day?

What did the angel do;

what did the angel say?

I bet there is a library

where saints and angels write,

And I bet there is a book

about that angel’s night.

The creative process is a beautiful metaphor for marriage, whether it be painting, writing, dancing, singing, etc... Stay tuned in for part 2 of "The Blank Canvas of Marriage".

“I Will Rejoice” by Deanna Wood

http://www.ourcityonahill.net/i-will-rejoice-by-deanna-wood/

May 12, 2017 08:23 AM PDT

As Kaitlin enters the final stretch before her wedding, just a few weeks away, this conversation revolves around the loving "ins and outs" of THE RING.

Which is it, THE WEDDING RING or THE BOXING RING?

Good advice is timeless. Whether we are single, dating, engaged, newly married or in the "seasoned" category, we can all use relationship refreshers that, when applied, help us live responsive, not reactive, lives.

Marriage 101:

1-Stay away from using ALWAYS AND NEVER in "spicy and dicy", really any, conversations.

2-Counting to 10 before responding is NEVER a bad thing to dosmiley

3-Pressure points can be fertile ground for growth, when we hold our tongues to pray and ponder, instead of holding a grudge while we pout and prance off.

4-The "Sandwich Conversation technique" serves everyone well: one way to approach "hard" conversations productively

(high)1 thing you appreciate - (low)1 thing you did not appreciate - (high)1 thing you appreciated and the only thing the other person can respond with is THANK YOU!

**Beginning and ending on a high note, makes the valley not so disastrous.

5- Shared activities are important.

**"2 become 1" does not mean that each gives up what makes them unique or their personal preferences; it means we compliment one another, celebrating differences, while finding common ground to grow in and on together. Relationships are ever growing. While comprise is a negative when it comes to morals, it is a necessity if we want thriving relationships.

6-Cherish the traditions from both of your pasts as you move into a life together, while establishing new traditions unique to the ONE you have now become.

7- COMMUNICATION COMMUNICATION COMMUNICATION - Kaitlin shares the premarital counseling curriculum her church uses: Check out Dr.Les and Leslie Parrott: http://www.lesandleslie.com
**"Les and Leslie. A husband-and-wife team who not only share the same name, but the same passion for helping others build healthy relationships. In 1991, the Parrotts founded the Center for Relationship Development on the campus of Seattle Pacific University – a groundbreaking program dedicated to teaching the basics of good relationships."

Kaitlin and Katie jump straight into a conversation about the creative in all of us.
We are created to create.
Do you believe that?

Creating "your thing" is simply an act of obedience when you know God has asked you to write, paint, speak, sing, act, dance, etc... for "AN AUDIENCE OF ONE"!

We are conduits for God's fingerprint in our lives. We write from and for HIM by sharing HIS message, HIS beauty, with our world.

Fear of man is one of our biggest obstacles when it comes to pushing publish, post, tweet etc...

When we truly believe that our message will add value to the world around us, we must push past that fear and push publish or post anyway!
Yes, it is RISKY BUSINESS but WORTHY NONETHELESS!

Stepping out of our comfort zone is usually where our creativity takes flight.

Lightening round question: What are you most excited about right now?

Due to technical difficulties, episode 20 is being published AFTER Episode 21, although recorded before. This is just part of taking the journey before the people! (see Deut. 10:11)

In true GENTalks spontaneous and improv fashion, Kaitlin and Katie have a conversation about "the messy middle" or "the mean-time", the time we have here on earth between our salvation moment and when we go Home to Heaven. The "messy middle" is where we have a choice:

Will we live a meaningful life in the "mean-time" or will we get sucked into a life "full of stuff", but lacking meaning?

Check out the slideshow below, just one local example of a city choosing the "meaningful in the mean-time!"

Wrestling with some technical difficulties, Kaitlin and Katie are a little late sharing a couple of resent conversations. The next episodes will be out of order; Easter has come and gone but the time spent together catching up was still priceless and definitely worth sharing.

In this episode Kaitlin fills us in on her special bachelorette weekend in Savannah, GA and how she saw glimpses of God's glory all along the way.

**Check out Cathedral of St. John the Baptist,https://savannahcathedral.org , one of the treasures Kaitlin visited with her bridesmaids.

Kaitlin and Katie savor the splendor of taking Christ with us everywhere we go, even bachelorette parties. It might sound irreverent to some, but there is no place Jesus would rather be than invited to our everything. Just like our Bibles are not intended to be big fancy books that sit on a shelf and collect dust our Jesus is not a far away God we leave on a throne. Our Bibles, our Jesus, are the most important traveling companions we could ever have.

Take the time to connect with the generations around you. We have much to learn from and enjoy with one another! #bettertogether

“I Will Rejoice” by Deanna Wood

http://www.ourcityonahill.net/i-will-rejoice-by-deanna-wood/

April 01, 2017 06:20 AM PDT

Kaitlin and Katie discuss Christian Comparison. Comparison is the thief of contentment and joy and when it crosses over to our faith walk the enemy of our soul celebrates, while the heart of God breaks.

The enemy's mission has been and will always be, to kill, still and destroy. Once he knows our soul is off the table, we are saved, the enemy wants to steal our joy and destroy our witness.

Social media can be such a Kingdom building place, but it can also be a contentment killer.

Kaitlin shares her take aways from Annie F. Downs podcast episode with Adam Weber, a pastor from Sioux Falls, South Dakota , Embrace Church. He is also the author of a new book called "Talking With God". Adam talks about how pastors are real people, not to be put on a pedestal. Adam is honest with his short comings and his congregation knows him as a person first. Adam's book, "Talking With God: What To Say When You Don't Know How To Pray" is a treasure.

God does not compare His children to one another. God does not compare our prayers. God is simply looking for His kids to come to Him wholeheartedly and be honest. Our honesty with God is the key to our intimacy with God. We can have as much of God as seek to.

He is available.

Are we?

Are our eyes fixed on Christ or is our head on a swivel?

Are we locking eyes with the ONE or comparing ourselves to the world around us?

Lean into Jesus. He fills our cup. He gives us our direction and next step. We move forward splashing what we are full of!

What are we full of?

MAY WE STEER CLEAR OF COMPARING OUR SPLASH ZONES, WHILE STICKING CLOSE TO OUR BROTHER'S AND SISTERS IN CHRIST!

WE WERE MADE TO SPLASH TOGETHER!

***Godwink after podcast:

Just 2 days after recording this podcast, Katie attended the New Room Conference Tulsa with her friend and one of the conference speakers, Rica McRoy. Little did she know going into this special one day gathering, that Adam Weber would be the keynote speaker. After spending a day with Adam, Katie was marked by his hungry heart for Jesus, humility and sincere kindness. He is most definitely leaving beauty marks in his wake that point the world around him to Christ! And his book is truly the beautiful overflow of his passionate heart for God, a treasure you do not want to pass up!

Kaitlin and Katie are both headed to the conference "She Speaks" July 20-22, 2017.

*Check out the following link for conference details:
http://shespeaksconference.com

"God continues to call Proverbs 31 Ministries to encourage and equip women as they communicate God’s Word through writing, sharing their testimonies, leading Bible studies, connecting online and speaking to small groups or at a podium. We are a community of leaders, speakers and writers working on imperfect progress, and we’d love for you to join us as we walk forward in our calling." Proverbs 31 Ministries

Kaitlin and Katie tell their individual stories of how God has been leading them on this adventure. Katie attended in 2010 and 2011 and Kaitlin was suppose to go last year but God had a different plan and HIS plan always trumps ours!

They could not have planned it better themselves. Both signed up individually before registration was full and are now literally "hitting the road together " for "She Speaks 2017."

They are both in the process of writing book proposals to pitch in July and will keep you posted along the way!

“I Will Rejoice” by Deanna Wood

http://www.ourcityonahill.net/i-will-rejoice-by-deanna-wood/

March 18, 2017 03:18 PM PDT

Episode 17: The Pursuit of Purpose

Kaitlin and Katie talk about the pursuit of purpose in episode 17. They share podcasts, Bible stories and personal stories reflecting on God purpose and calling. We live in a world that is more than willing to tell us what our purpose “should be” or “could be.” If we do not know why God put us here, we will let selfish ambition, worldly words of affirmation or natural ability give us our WHY. None of those will ever fit the God-shaped hole in our hearts.

Just like the maker of a product, defines the purpose of a product; our Maker, defines our divine purpose!

Don’t let the world deter you from your purpose. Sometimes we need to respond like Nehemiah did: “I am doing a great work. I can’t come down. Why should the work come to a standstill just so I can come see you?”

“I’m Doing a Great Work; I Can’t Come Down” Nehemiah 6:1-4 MSG

When Sanballat, Tobiah, Geshem the Arab, and the rest of our enemies heard that I had rebuilt the wall and that there were no more breaks in it—even though I hadn’t yet installed the gates— Sanballat and Geshem sent this message: “Come and meet with us at Kephirim in the valley of Ono.”

I knew they were scheming to hurt me so I sent messengers back with this: “I’m doing a great work; I can’t come down. Why should the work come to a standstill just so I can come down to see you?”

Four times they sent this message and four times I gave them my answer.

Craig Groeshel was told my many that the Bible should never be given away for free on the internet. He stayed the course, he did not come down from the wall and YouVersion was birthed.
“A free Bible on your phone, tablet, and computer. YouVersion is a
simple, ad-free Bible that brings God's Word into your daily life.”

The Purpose Driven Life
https://www.amazon.com/Purpose-Driven-Life-What-Earth/dp/031033750X

In a nut shell, our purpose is to know and enjoy God, and bring HIM glory with our lives. When we die, we will be asked 2 questions:
What did you do with My Son, Jesus? (Purpose)
What did you do with the gifts I gave you? (Calling)
Do we use our gifts, time, talent, and treasure to love, enjoy, and share Jesus?
Our Calling is the “How”, but our purpose is the “Why” .

Prayerfully this conversation will ignite your passion to pursue your God-given purpose, knowing that you are equipped and empowered by the Holy Spirit as you function in your God-given calling. Don’t get hung up on the definitions and the differences in purpose and calling, just know that we all have both and if we seek God, we will find Him and He is ready and willing to explain everything we need to know as we journey together with HIM.

As always, the hope behind these talks is that they will encourage you to connect with the generations around you. We have much to learn from one another and we are most definitely #bettertogether !

March 13, 2017 05:51 AM PDT

Kaitlin and Katie dive in quickly today sharing some of their "God Winks" through the years. They share the comforting ways God has shown up during the death of loved ones and the unexpected ways He has surprised them on any given ordinary day. They had a hard time holding back tears. You may want the tissue close.

WHAT'S A GODWINK?
A godwink is what some people would call a coincidence, an answered prayer, or simply an experience where you'd say, "Wow, what are the odds of that!" SQuire Rushnell, author of "When God Winks"

https://www.whengodwinks.com/faqs/

https://www.whengodwinks.com

The hope behind this podcast is that it will encourage listeners to start looking for the God Winks in their own lives. When we look back and see how God has shown up, it builds our faith and reminds us of His unwavering faithfulness and extravagant love.

The heart behind this podcast is to inspire listeners to connect with the generations that have gone before them and that are coming behind. We have so much to glean from one another as we grow alongside each other. May we be ever learning and exceptionally generous with our lives. #bettertogether
