Feed Your Spirit: A Podcast talking with ordinary people about those moments in life when God’s word gives you just what you need when you need it most. We all have those moments when we randomly open our bible and there it is - His words of faith, renewal, courage, patience, or a good ol’ dose of tough love fills us with what only He can give. Hosted by the 2 Scripture Sisters, Jill and Denise, this conversation-style podcast aims to share stories that will feed your spirit.
On today's episode, we are talking with Ben. Ben is the husband to our previous guest Carol Ann. If you have had not listened to Carol Ann’s episode, we encourage you to do so now. Ben’s story is about addiction recovery. While this topic is sensitive in nature, we encourage you to listen with an open heart and to be mindful if there are young children within listening range. Currently Ben owns his own business in digital marketing and is busy raising two young children alongside his wife, Carol Ann. Surrounded by family, faith, his church community, and friends, Ben shares with us his trials and challenges with his addiction. Ben also talks openly about the healing process and what it takes day to day to overcome victoriously. Ben is forever thankful to his wife, family, church and the staff at The Colony of Mercy - a residential recovery program for men at America’s Keswick.
With the determination to consciously live in the word, we invite you to plug in and prepare your heart as we Feed Your Spirit with everyday stories of God’s grace from everyday people.
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. (Galatians 2:20)
