Becoming - Podcast for Teens, Young Adults, and Individuals
God of the Impossible

God of the Impossible

September 17, 2020

This episode is incredibly close to our hearts. Tawni felt so strongly that she needed to study the topic of the God of the Impossible, and as she wrote this episode she knew it was for someone specific. A few weeks later, after some devastating news she realized the episode was for her. God is a God of miracles, he can do the impossible. When we think there are no possible solutions left...he will provide a solution that we thought was impossible. This episode has brought comfort in the face of an impossible time, and we hope it will do the same for you.

 

Stay tuned for Season 2. We are excited to continue to Become right along with you!

It Didn’t Work Out

It Didn’t Work Out

September 10, 2020

Next week we will be airing our 100th episode! Which by the way you will NOT want to miss, but we wanted to share a few things in this episode before you listen in next week. Over the last few months...a lot has been happening behind the scenes. With all that has happened and changed, we felt it fitting to let you know about Season 2 of Becoming! The heart of Becoming will be the same, we will always be keeping the teen in mind. However the teens who have been listening from the start are no longer teens, and we have a ton of adult listeners. We are going to be more inclusive of the other demographic of listeners that we have here as well...and just continue sharing the heart of what this podcast has always been about. Becoming more than we are and who we were always meant to be.

We also talk a bit about the topic "It Didn't Work Out". Tawni shares about her recent divorce and how she has been able to find new perspectives to hold onto as she has hope and faith that even when things don't work out, the best is still yet to come. We will experience many things not working out in this life...but the person who we become because of those disappointing experiences is exactly the person who God wants us to grow to be.

#careergoals with Aligned Ambition (ENCORE!!)

September 3, 2020

The career field is changing. It's changed in the last 10, 20, 30 years dramatically. We WANT to help prepare you to join the workforce as an adult with a plan and purpose. We want to encourage a confidence within you, that you are not only taking the right steps that will help get you jobs in the field you desire...but that you actually have the right skills, strengths, and values you need to get there. In order to do that, we have got to rethink the way the majority of us have been going about education and career training. 

Heather Glenn with Aligned Ambition is helping guide us through the best ways to discover what really is right for you, and how to stop walking blindly towards adulthood. This process is beyond valuable to helping you understand yourself better as well as finding a career, education program, college, or major. If you want to feel EXCITED instead of scared and unsure about your future...please join us as we walk you through where to start and how to continue this process.

Originally Aired: May 2, 2019
