Have you ever felt like there are certain topics that are not openly talked about as Christians?
There are so many things happening in society and in our own lives and relationships that we often don’t know how to talk about.
Maybe we’re worried it will make us seem like a “bad” Christian or we’re worried that the conversation will get heated and end in fruitless arguments.
But there’s a lot at risk when Christians don’t talk about hard topics or learn how to disagree respectfully.
So in this episode of the SHE podcast, I have a candid conversation with author Blake Guichet about the conversations Christians feel like they can’t or shouldn’t have.
From politics to mental health to church hurt, we dig into why these conversations are often avoided and how Christians can be better at discussing heated issues with respect.
Blake Guichet is a writer and founder of the Crappy Christian Co., which aims to teach women how to use their God-given gifts. She is the host of the popular podcast Confessions of a Crappy Christian—a show that specializes in conversations with guests about their passions, struggles, and all the things they aren’t sure they can talk about.
Her new book, Confessions of a Crappy Christian: Real-Life Talk About All the Things Christians Aren’t Sure We’re Supposed to Say—and Why They Matter to God, offers an honest and transparent approach to navigating the things we aren’t sure we’re allowed to talk about as Christians and helps us discover why God cares about them and us.
If you’re ready to talk about all the things you’re not sure you can talk about, then tune in to this episode and learn:
