Show #11: Fighting for the unborn | Special guest: Vicky Kaseorg (Listener discretion is advised)

Show #11: Fighting for the unborn | Special guest: Vicky Kaseorg (Listener discretion is advised)

February 26, 2019

On the show we will be discussing the aggressive agenda of abortion in our country today, what God says about that baby forming in the womb and the forgiveness He gives through Christ for those who have chosen to abort their unborn child.

If you are a pregnant mother who is considering abortion, I pray and plead with you to listen to this show and allow God to show you that there is hope through His Son, Jesus. That baby isn’t a mistake and neither are you.

We are almost at the end of February, but I couldn’t let the month end without bringing you a new episode of The Lightingale Podcast.

Quite honestly, this was a challenging month for me. But I know it’s because of the many breakthroughs my husband and I are experiencing in our marriage and because of the topic I knew God was speaking to me about for this month’s podcast.

Spiritual warfare is real. (Ephesians 6) But through Jesus, I already know I have the victory. I have been prayerful and totally dependent on God as He has pressed on my heart to share and speak about one of the most debated and heated issues going on in America today. The issue of abortion. Taking the life of the preborn.

God already has spoken about this issue and it is just evil and wrong. And it’s getting worse as 2019 unfolds. The laws protecting this vile thing are getting more and more extreme. God told me it was time to speak up.

When we moved to Charlotte, NC from Columbia, SC — I’d never seen people standing outside of abortion clinics before. I was amazed at the boldness that these people had to speak with women who were just steps away from allowing a doctor to legally kill their growing baby. My heart was moved and so broken. Still is.

But God is using these men and women to stand in the gap to plead to God and to these mothers to not kill their children. They were sharing the hope of Jesus with them, and these women were responding and choosing life for their babies! Hallelujah!

I had to speak to someone. And by God’s goodness and grace, he opened up the door for me to speak with a beautiful woman working with Cities 4 Life Charlotte with a willing heart to share her powerful testimony.

Vicky Kaseorg, born in Pennsylvania in 1956, studied art and writing at Binghamton University in NY, and became a professional artist early in her career. It was in Binghamton that she met and married her husband 38 years ago. She is the mother of 3 children.

In 2014, Kaseorg wanted to write a book about volunteers who stood outside abortion centers encouraging women to choose life over abortion. As a result of her research for the book, she immediately recognized that God was calling her to volunteer with Cities4Life. That decision led to breaking the silence of her own abortion four decades earlier. As in all things, God used that horrific painful past for good, equipping Kaseorg with an empathy for the women on a similar path of destruction not only to their babies but to themselves.

In 2016, Kaseorg became the Volunteer Coordinator for Cities4Life, training new volunteers to effectively counsel abortion-minded women.

Show #10: Kicking your career goals into high gear | Special guest: Keosha Oliver

Show #10: Kicking your career goals into high gear | Special guest: Keosha Oliver

January 1, 2019

Happy New Year! 2019 is HERE!

 

On January's show, I interview my friend and career coach, Keosha Oliver! She lives in Atlanta, she's the mother of 2 boys, she's an accounting whiz and owner of 3 businesses.

On the show, she shares practical tips on starting a new career, navigating the job field post-graduation and exactly how homemakers can re-enter the workforce.

Keosha also shares her testimony to encourage that woman who has completely given up and we also talk about learning to serve in the current jobs we have, even if it’s not where we *feel* we should be. (Preach, Joseph!) 

 

Read her bio here:

 

Keosha has never been one to shy away from a challenge. Her tenacity and hustle are what identifies her as a leader in the professional development, accounting, and business solutions industries. Keosha has spent the majority of her career working in the accounting industry but her desire for entrepreneurship has been the driving force to launch her businesses.

 

In 2014, Keosha launched Oak Virtual Solutions to encompass all of the services she would offer to fellow entrepreneurs and working professionals. She later established PremierOne Accounting Solutions (2017) and Everyday Professionals (2018) to provide targeted solutions for business owners and professionals.

 

Along with her entrepreneurial efforts, Keosha has an assured passion to work with and develop youth as they navigate through different endeavors in life. She has worked as a youth leader at her church, acted as a mentor for teen girls, and led connect groups to continuously grow and foster relationships with teens. 

 

With the help of many great mentors and like-minded business owners, Keosha is deeply motivated to building a strong presence for Everyday Professionals for years to come.

 

She is also a mom to two AMAZING little boys who fuel her passion to succeed.

 

Scripture references:

The story of Joseph - Genesis 37; 39-45

If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won't be honest with greater responsibilities. -Luke 16:10 NLT

"For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard." -Romans 3:23 NLT

October 12, 2018

Happy October! Y'all, October 4th, 2018 marked The Lightingale Podcast’s 1st birthday! TO GOD BE THE GLORY! Thank you for being a faithful supporter and listener! God has exceeded my expectations here and I’m so thankful to Him for this milestone.

I am overjoyed about this month’s podcast! This will actually be the last show for 2018! We will kick things back off in January of 2019!

***NOTE: I apologize about the audio in certain parts of the show. The microphone we were using was right beside the laptop and the computer's fan was so loud at times. Please excuse the occasional humming!***

This month's guest is Katrina McCain! Katrina is a former Fashion Model from Charlotte, NC. She is the founder and president of Pearls of Hope Outreach and has a passion to encourage women of all ages to live for Jesus authentically, in spite of the culture that tells them they can’t. She's earned a BA in Literature from UNC-Charlotte and holds an MA in Education. She is the proud wife of her husband, Jarrett, and mother to her sweet girls, Kailyn and Jaelle.

On the show, Katrina shares the funny story about how she got started in professional modeling, the role her parents played as she started following Jesus, the freedom that she experienced when she released the mindset of perfection, obedience preceding our feelings, why it's important to see if the man interested in you has a hyena spirit or a lion spirit, and so much more!

You can purchase Katrina’s new book Beyond Being Good: Seeking Christ’s Perfection for Our Imperfect Hearts, here. Also, follow Katrina on Instagram right here!

Show #7: Why do we believe God will deliver everyone else, but we don’t believe He will deliver us?

Show #7: Why do we believe God will deliver everyone else, but we don’t believe He will deliver us?

August 9, 2018

Welcome back to The Lightingale Podcast! We are back from a much-needed summer break!

In this month's episode, we discuss a question: Why do we believe God will deliver everyone else, but we don't believe He will deliver us?

God challenged me with 3 things that contribute to us circling around and around in this same weak mindset. Jealousy, envy, anger, anxiety, frustration, fear and all sorts of other things thrive in that place of unbelief! Jesus died so that we can be freed from that bondage. God wants and has so much more for His sons and daughters. 

Pray this show blesses you!

Show #5: Comfort is a liar (my testimony)

Show #5: Comfort is a liar (my testimony)

April 17, 2018

Our comfort will lie to us. We can do huge, mighty things for Jesus - but have no relationship with Him. 

My sin should be hated, but instead, I held it near. Because of that, my love for Jesus waxed cold. We can't fix ourselves we NEED Jesus. We need to repent and ask the Lord for forgiveness, to cover our sin with His precious blood.

When we make Him our Lord and Saviour, we will never be the same. Things won't be easy, we will still fall short, and life will still be hard at times, but Jesus will be with us, He will make us new, He will revive us.  In this episode, I share my testimony and how Easter Sunday 2018 changed my life forever.

Hope it blesses you!
