On today’s episode of She Walks In Truth, Life and Digital Strategy Coach for Christian Entrepreneurs Angela J Herrington chats about finding freedom and fulfillment in our God-given calling.
Angela shares how as a child she grew up around church but not really in church. She got church but didn’t understand faith. In college Angela had a prodigal season and at the tail end she realized that there had been a lot of people who were praying for her the entire time. After getting out of that season she went back to school and got hungry for the Lord. God began to turn her scares into healing.
God’s Call To Ministry (6:00)
Angela shares how God called her to ministry during a very busy season in her life. It was one of the most difficult things she’s done but also one of the best things she’s done. Going to seminary she was around women in ministry who had roles in churches and denominations that she had never experienced before.
Women In Church (8:00)
Gen X women, do we have access to mentoring and discipleship opportunities. Lack of opportunities for women. Private interviews gutted her. How can I have these skills and giftings and pour them out into her sisters who don’t have access to these resources. Women who want to lead and don’t have the opportunity to. Through coaching and ministry Angela has been able to mash together her skills. Family, business and ministry don’t have to be separate. The more we fragment our lives the less whole we are.
Never Too Broken For God (13:00)
For the woman who feels too far gone for God, Angela speaks truth and life into you. God is coming for you; he’s actually already there.
Breaking Through Barriers (20:14)
Angela speaks very clearly about ministry and breaking through the barriers of what ministry traditionally “looks like” in the American culture.

Business (14:49) Setting healthy boundaries and educating others who don’t understand what you “do” is one of the best ways Alexandrea has found to navigate being a non-traditional business owner.

Gladiator Friendships (8:15)
Hannah talks about how good friendships are similar to how Gladiator’s train. They train with other gladiators who are willing to hurt them but not kill them. She feels friendship is the same thing.

Jennifer Sims is a wife, mom, business person, mentor and leader.

From a young age her parents taught her how to pray and how to study the Word which helped her develop a love for Scripture.

Currently there is no cure or effective medical therapy for PSC. Though there is not much that can be done for it. Kyle is currently listed for a liver transplant. Although that won’t cure the disease, Jennifer says it’s a prolonging of life because it will start him over with a clean liver and give him the chance to live healthy for a long while.
Passionate About Gratefulness (19:32)
Kyle is champ. He doesn’t like it and doesn’t want to have the disease but Jennifer talks about how he’s done the best he can with what he’s been given and how as a family they’ve tried to be purposeful in being a light for Christ in the medical community whether with their attitudes or sharing about God with doctors or other families they never otherwise would have had access to.

On today’s show she shares about finding the treasure in each and every day which is something she’s while parenting her son 13 year old son JC who’s battled leukemia multiple times since he was 2 years old. Angie’s heart’s desire is to meet people where they’re at and love them through their journey.
Angie shares how being raised both Southern Baptist and Catholic has given her a unique understanding about “church.”
God’s Mercy & Grace (9:00)
Angie answers the question she hears often, “How do you do it?” Her answer is always, “God’s mercy and grace in the moment.” The wisdom she’s learned in life is to focus on the now. When she focuses on the past she starts feeling depressed. When she focuses on the future she’s filled with anxiety but when she focuses on the present she’s able to open her heart to God’s mercy and can find joy in the moment.
JC’s Story (13:13)
Angie opens up about JC’s story of him first being diagnosed with leukemia at the age of two up until now at the age of 13. JC has had 6 relapses and 7 diagnoses.

Other Dynamics (26:41)
Over the years the Lord’s provision has kept them out of bankruptcy which is all too often the case with medical expenses of this magnitude. Angie talks about some of the ways bills have come in and within hours they’ll receive a check or money that’s nearly right down to the penny of a medical bill.
The Present (38:45)
Angie addresses JC’s present and most recent diagnosis and how others can come alongside them.

Alissa Holmes is the Executive Pastor and Development Director for Twin Cities Justice House of Prayer. In addition she’s an admin and worship leader for a night and day house of prayer as well as works for a powerful inner healing ministry called Door of Hope. Alissa is also a writer, musician, filmmaker and artist who is passionate about creation in all of its forms. She loves seeing people transformed with the power of Christ after being delivered from severe depression and suicidal tendencies.
Alissa is a pastor’s kid who came to know the Lord at the young age of 3. She struggled with nightmares and her mom led her through a salvation prayer and asked the Lord to take away the nightmares and he did. Then at the age of 9 she started with depression and suicidal tendencies due to some trauma in her childhood. At the age of 13 Alissa tried to run away from home and when she came back home her dad started crying and saying his baby was back. Those words from her father broke through a lie she had in her head that nobody loved her. That began a 6 year journey of healing. But in her twenties some other hardships caused her to doubt her relationship with God. God used a mother in the Lord to help Alissa walk through deliverance and ultimately began a 6 month healing process.
Walking Out Inner Healing (9:09)
Alissa shares how when she was first walking out her healing it was like she had lived her whole life in a prison cell and all of sudden she was experiencing life in a new way. It took the Spirit of God to set her free and give her a holy imagination of how he actually created her to be. She wants people to know is that God’s healing isn’t dependent upon our background.
Alissa shares how because God transforms us from the inside out we ought to see others how God sees them even when it’s difficult. So rather than saying someone is the way they are and they’ll never change is not gospel. We have a divine responsibility to reach out and help others grow in the areas where they’re weak.
Conflict Resolutions (20:24)
Alissa talks about how when we have an inner conflict with someone, rather than thinking it’s someone else shortcoming and to roll past it, saying something immediately rather than dramatizing it or making a big deal out of it is powerful to deal to call others up to a higher way of living.
“Not For Me” Mantra (26:00)
Over the past 6 months Alissa has been working out with the Lord renouncing the inner lies or vows she’s made with the enemy over the years that good things are not for her. A mentor encouraged her to keep proclaiming the truth over herself so Alissa chose to speak God’s truth, “I am chosen and I am wanted” and she experienced breakthrough in a profound way.
