For years after the shooting, she dealt with the trauma of the violence that plagued her childhood.

June 30, 2022 • Tina Griffin

In 2013, Mariam Ibraheem was arrested by Sudan authorities on Christmas Eve for the crime of being a Christian. They told her that she had broken Islamic law by marrying a Christian man and was charged with adultery under Sharia Law. Mariam says she knew that her life would never be the same, and she was threatened with flogging and a death sentence. On Christmas Day, Jesus told her, “You are not alone.” Sentenced to death by hanging and rejected by society, Mariam describes the pain of persecution, the importance of tending to the needs of the persecuted church despite Christian’s fears, and turning to the Bible for guidance through the most terrifying moments in life. What saved her life is astonishing! TAKEAWAYS Mariam says that when Christians ignore the suffering of the body of Christ, they are rejecting Him Mariam’s father was a Muslim, but her mother was a Christian, which is considered adultery and worthy of death According to Islamic law, Mariam’s pregnancy saved her life: a pregnant woman cannot be hanged Islamic culture is very harsh toward women; women are viewed as weak and unintelligent and have far less choices and rights than men 🛠 TOOLS AND RESOURCES FROM EPISODE Mariam Ibraheem’s Story Video: https://bit.ly/3Ps1IIw Shackled Book: https://bit.ly/3FOb50K 🔗 CONNECT WITH MARIAM IBRAHEEM Facebook: https://bit.ly/3OD7fKP 🔗 CONNECT WITH THE TAHRIR ALNISA FOUNDATION Website: https://www.tahriralnisa.org/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/tahriralnisa LinkedIn: https://bit.ly/3HKtIn0 Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tahriralnisa/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/TAFtahriralnisa YouTube: https://bit.ly/3tQsSQ7 🔗 CONNECT WITH COUNTER CULTURE MOM https://linktr.ee/CounterCultureMom 📺 WATCH OUR PREVIOUS SHOWS https://bit.ly/theCCMshow 📲 GET OUR APP & FREE PARENT MEDIA GUIDE http://bit.ly/landingpageCCM 💵 SUPPORT THE MISSION 2021 Recap & 2022 Goals: https://bit.ly/CCMDonate2021 Make a Tax-Deductible Donation: https://counterculturemom.com/partner/

Ep. 215 - PowerSoul Experience Energizes Weary Women with Founder Brandie Barclay

June 29, 2022 • Tina Griffin

Women are good at getting their family to church looking picture perfect, but they are often less skilled at taking care of themselves and resting in God’s grace. Brandie Barclay is the founder of the PowerSoul Experience, an electrifying women’s event that she kickstarted during the Covid pandemic, when she boldly defied Arizona lockdown regulations. Brandie now calls her ministry a revival of God’s women, whom she believes are being called to the forefront of today’s cultural and societal battles. Brandie also encourages women to rely on God alone and cast aside the opinions and criticisms of others. We need to look to God’s magnificence and His guidance in life, not the world’s. TAKEAWAYS Too many Christians in America are not involved in politics, and as a result, Christians don’t have a voice God told Brandie that Christians have become a “doormat” to today’s culture Offer up your messiness to God and let Him do His magnificent work with it The Devil is stealing your strength if you don’t have joy 🛠 TOOLS AND RESOURCES FROM EPISODE PowerSoul Video: https://bit.ly/3LpqeXi Adele: Make You Feel My Love: https://bit.ly/3zUg4vV 🔗 CONNECT WITH BRANDIE BARCLAY Website: https://brandiebarclay.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brandie.barclay/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brandiebarclay/ YouTube: https://bit.ly/3PAem8o Podcast: https://shessorightshow.com/ 🔗 CONNECT WITH POWERSOUL Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/powersoulexperience/ 🔗 CONNECT WITH COUNTER CULTURE MOM https://linktr.ee/CounterCultureMom 📺 WATCH OUR PREVIOUS SHOWS https://bit.ly/theCCMshow 📲 GET OUR APP & FREE PARENT MEDIA GUIDE http://bit.ly/landingpageCCM 💵 SUPPORT THE MISSION 2021 Recap & 2022 Goals: https://bit.ly/CCMDonate2021 Make a Tax-Deductible Donation: https://counterculturemom.com/partner/
