Hello dear ones, I hope this post finds you all doing well! I was tremendously honored to be interviewed by David Knight founder of Exposit the Word. It premiered yesterday afternoon, but you can now check it out over on his YouTube channel which I’ll link below. I hope that this interview will be edifying, and that you’ll take the time to subscribe to his channel and check out some of the other fantastic video’s he has up. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
Hello beloved brethren, I hope this post finds you all doing well! As you all well know by now, alongside the topic of Biblical Creationism, I absolutely adore Biblical Archeology. These two subjects are my favorite to research, so I was so excited to get the chance to discuss archeology after recording a couple of episodes about creationism. Today I delve into the errors of Egyptian timelines, the digs that have census and even a few of the ones that are still up for debate. I hope this one will be just as edifying as the others!
One question I ask during the episode, and I’d love to hear your thoughts, is whether or not you believe the picture of what looks like a boats outline on Mount Ararat is really Noah’s Ark? Let me know in the comments below. As usual, there’s a timestamped outline below, as well as some article links for further research on this topic. Also, if you didn’t get a chance to see last weeks MEGA list, I’m going to link to it here. Great news, y’all, Tulips & Honey Hub is now officially available on Amazon’s new Podcasting app! You can, of course, listen across all major podcasting platforms such as Podbean, iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, iHeart Radio, Stitcher, and in video form on Youtube. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Hello dear ones, I hope this post finds you all doing well! Today I have dropped an episode with sweaty palms, and a knot in my stomach. Why? Because this topic makes me, as you’ll see/hear, quite uncomfortable. CDD, Christian Domestic Discipline, is a strange topic, but one that needed to be addressed. Those who are adherents to CDD believe that the husband should physically disciple his wife when she sins. There are several verses being used out of context to come to the conclusions they’ve come to, not to mention illogical reasoning, and the always disappointing use of ignoring the rest of a verse to force a meaning that’s not there. While I’m always passionate about the need to properly exegit Scripture with solid hermeneutics, I truly hope I don’t sound ungracious in this episode. I’d love to know, readers, if you’ve ever heard of CDD? Let me know in the comments below.
This episode was difficult to record, in fact it might be my least favorite episode yet. That being said, the bloopers might be in my top favorite! I hope you’ll at least skip to the very end and watch them, or if you’ve been through the whole episode and need a good laugh that they’ll be there for you. Below I’ve included a timestamped outline as well the Scriptures I discussed, and links to more information about this subject. Also, if you didn’t get a chance to see last weeks MEGA list, I’m going to link to it here. You can, of course, listen across all major podcasting platforms such as Podbean, iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, iHeart Radio, Stitcher, and in video form on Youtube.

22 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands.
25 Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, 26 that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27 so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.[a] 28 In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, 30 because we are members of his body. 31 “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” 32 This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. 33 However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
TS 00:27:17 – 1 Peter 2: 13-17
13 Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution,[a] whether it be to the emperor[b] as supreme, 14 or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. 15 For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. 16 Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants[c] of God. 17 Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.
29:30 – Titus 2: 2-15 & Titus 3: 1-2
2 Older men are to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness. 3 Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, 4 and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, 5 to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled. 6 Likewise, urge the younger men to be self-controlled. 7 Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, 8 and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us. 9 Bondservants[a] are to be submissive to their own masters in everything; they are to be well-pleasing, not argumentative, 10 not pilfering, but showing all good faith, so that in everything they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior.
11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, 12 training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, 13 waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.
15 Declare these things; exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no one disregard you.
Titus 3: 1-2
Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, 2 to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people.

Hello dear ones, I hope this post finds you all doing well! First, before I do anything else, I want to wish my incredible husband a happy anniversary! Today we celebrate 13 years of marriage, and it’s excited to say that I’m so much more in love with him now than I was when we first married. God graciously gave me far more than I could ever deserve the day He allowed me to meet this wonderful man!
Today is Friday, and that means I’ll be going live this afternoon on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Youtube. Technology is so fun…sometimes…ok just when it actually works the way it’s supposed to. Hopefully, that will be today’s experience. I’m excited about today’s live event because I have some exciting news about next week! Brook Bartz first every podcast episode will be dropping, Lord willing, on Wednesday! Keep an eye out for it, or subscribe to her YouTube channel, her new podcast is going to be called Open Hearts. I’m also excited to share who won last weeks t-shirt giveaway. I love doing giveaways, it’s one of my favorite parts about having social media.
So, what’s coming up on Monday’s episode? Well, I am deeply disturbed by something a follower on Instagram sent me. It was regarding a movement called CDD, or Christian Domestic Discipline. Never heard of it? Neither had I. In fact, I thought it was satire. It is, unfortunately, not a joke, but a very unbiblical movement where husbands physically punish their wives when they sin. Obviously, I felt this needed some attention as I was made aware of this within the Reformed circles…and of course found out that it was being promoted by certain Duggar children. Monday is going to be a difficult episode, and I would greatly appreciate your prayers.
What about some recommendations? Glad you asked, let’s cheer up the mood a bit shall we? These masks are hilarious! I’ll be honest, I was hoping not to need a mask any longer, but for just $15 you can wear something that might actually make you smile. You know, instead of the dread we all feel when we put the mask on and pretend not to be hyperventilating as we walk through Walmart. Just me? Personally, if we all have to wear the masks, couldn’t we at least get these mega chain stores to crank the AC a bit? I also want to recommend the podcast Women’s Hope, a podcast of The Master’s University. Brooke Bartz first pointed it out to me, and it’s been such a blessing! If you’re looking for a podcast with some theologically sound ladies, this is a great choice. My last recommendation is Justin Peter’s new series on misinterpreted Scriptures, hilariously titled Inigo Montoya Series. I’m very excited about this, JP has been doing a fantastic job creating entertaining and edifying content on YouTube!
Blogger Highlight: I’d like to continue highlighting a blogger on each MEGA list and this week I wanted to point everyone to my dear brother-in-Christ Pastor Jimmy, writer of the Veritas Domain blog. This brother does such a great job daily writing Biblically sound content, informing us on all types of issues, growing our knowledge in Scripture, and graciously refuting falsehood.
Prayer Requests: Lauren Bronner, writer of the Redeemed Mama Saved By Grace blog and author of Freedom from Anxiety, has fallen very ill. Please join me in praying for her, and her sweet family. As always, beloved brethren, be good Bereans and study to show yourselves approved.
Hello dear ones, I hope this post finds you all doing well! I was blessed to have my sweet husband join me on the program to talk about how we met, eventually getting married, coming to faith after we began traveling for his work, and eventually starting this podcast. He did some of my favorite impressions, and funny accents, throughout the episode and the blooper reel is my absolute favorite! I hope this episode will be fun for old listeners and informative for all the new subscribers. I want to thank my husband for stepping out of his comfort zone and coming on the podcast, I know it’s not something he’d ever do if it wasn’t for me begging asking him. You can, of course, listen across all major podcasting platforms such as Podbean, iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, iHeart Radio, Stitcher, and in video form on Youtube.

I had the privilege of talking with Alan from the Polite Leader Youtube channel, and we chatted about a lot of different topics. He was gracious enough to tell his testimony, talk about his work on exposing Word of Faith teachers, and also give some background into how he creates his videos and what’s coming next for his channel. It was such a fun conversation, I was encouraged by his heart for the body of Christ, and the work he is putting into creating videos that will educate and edify all of us. He was also incredibly kind enough to do a shout out for the program on a recent video on his channel, and I’m overwhelmed by the response from his listeners.
I’m looking forward to hearing Alan’s podcast, and his upcoming series through NAR teachers. I hope you’ll all join me in praying for him and his work online. Also, don’t forget if you’re watching on YouTube to stick around for the blooper’s reel at the end. It’s my favorite part of the editing process. Below I’ve included a timestamped outline of the episode, as well as some links to find the Polite Leader. You can, of course, listen across all major podcasting platforms such as Podbean, iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, iHeart Radio, Stitcher, and in video form on Youtube.

Hello again, dear ones, I hope this post finds you all doing well! It’s Monday, and that means I (finally) have a new podcast episode dropped and ready for you. Last week was more difficult than I expected it to be, honestly. I thought once I was over the worst of the virus I would get back to going none stop. Unfortunately, COVID is like the gift that keeps giving. As I sit here typing this, I still have yet to recover my sense of smell. I don’t even know how that’s possible, I still have some sniffles but not nearly severe enough to prohibit smell. This virus is so bizarre. The most difficult thing for me, at this point, is the fatigue that comes back suddenly. One minute I’ll be feeling fine and dandy, then BOOM time for a nap. I don’t have time for naps, but my smell-less immune system doesn’t care. Hopefully this week will be an improvement, as far as writing and podcasting goes. For sure, I have today’s episode and it is one that I’m really excited about!
I had the privilege of being joined by two brothers-in-Christ and fellow podcasters, Joseph Knowels and Rueben Rosalez from the Church History Matter’s podcast! It was the first recording I did after getting sick, so I was still a little foggy headed. They were very gracious, and patient, so this should be a fun, educational, and encouraging episode minus the overly excited host. Sorry! I had no idea how much I missed podcasting until I was forced to take a break from it. Joseph, Rueben, and I sat down to discuss the importance of Church History, their testimonies, why they decided to podcast about this topic, what their favorite stories are, and even Eschatology. I had a blast talking to them, and I learned a lot that I didn’t know! I hope you will too, don’t forget if you’re watching on YouTube to stick around for the blooper’s reel at the end. It’s my favorite part of the editing process. Below I’ve included a timestamped outline of the episode, as well as some links to find the Church History Matter’s podcast.

Today I had the joy of being joined on the program by The_Clever_Decorator, Jasmin Davis herself! Jasmin will be one of the breakout session speakers in the upcoming Open Hearts in a Closed World Women’s Conference. In this interview she shares her testimony, parenting and homeschooling tips, plus the way she decorates her home on a budget! She also gives us the inside scoop on what she’s addressing at the conference. You can find Jasmin on Instagram @the_clever_decorator.
The conference will be completely free, with CityALight doing the worship music, and main speakers including Susan Heck, Michelle Lesley, and Brooke Bartz! It will be live streamed on YouTube, FB, and IGTV and can be projected into your church if you’d like your women’s ministry to join in. I can’t wait for Jasmin’s breakout session, and I’m so thankful for her time on the program. You can, of course, listen across all major podcasting platforms such as Podbean, iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, iHeart Radio, Stitcher, and in video form on Youtube. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
Hello dear ones, I hope this finds you all doing well! I was honored to have the opportunity to interview Brandon Kimber, director of American Gospel: Christ Crucified & Christ Alone. A third documentary is due to release in 2021, and Mr. Kimber gave us a look into the inner workings of creating such works of theological genius. If you haven’t seen it yet, American Gospel is now on Netflix! Below is a timestamped outline in case you’d like to zip through this episode. You can, of course, listen across all major podcasting platforms such as Podbean, iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, iHeart Radio, Stitcher, and in video form on Youtube.

Hello dear ones! I hope this finds you all doing well. Today’s episode is an interview with Audio Book creator Jordan Riggle. His passion for seeing believers read more from Godly men throughout church history was so encouraging to me. As you know, I have a love for church fathers, reformers, and puritan literature so this was all right in my wheel house. I hope you’ll enjoy this episode and consider supporting this brother-in-Christ should you decide an audio book is what you are looking for. And please, please don’t miss the bloopers. I know, I say that every time, but this one is a particularly hilarious set, if you need a good laugh head over to my YouTube channel and skip to the end.
