Ep. 338 - Forced Into Prostitution at Eleven, BJ Garret Left Sex Industry and Chose Jesus

January 31, 2023 • Tina Griffin

BJ Garrett was just 11-years-old when her mother started prostituting her to help pay the bills. Sadly, this horrific abuse had started many years earlier with her father. What ensued was a childhood filled with sexual abuse, unplanned pregnancies, two abortions, and almost a decade of working in the sex industry as a stripper and prostitute. Thankfully, BJ found the redeeming love of Jesus Christ after being invited to church by a Christian couple she worked for. Today, BJ is a speaker, author, and on fire for the Lord, while sharing her testimony to many hurting people. She talks about surviving her childhood and the difficulties of toughing it out through the troubled times of single motherhood. She also identifies some red flags to look for when it comes to identifying sexual abuse in the home. TAKEAWAYS BJ describes Christ’s forgiveness as being the complete absence of hatred in her life: hatred of self, others, and of the world No matter what you’ve done or what’s been done to you, that is not your identity and there is hope and healing in Jesus Christ If you think someone is hurting your child or your neighbor’s child, you have a duty to protect that little one Check out Unwanted No More: From Exploited to Embraced by God, BJ’s award-winning memoir  🛠 TOOLS AND RESOURCES FROM EPISODE BJ’s Testimony Video: http://bit.ly/3qzrbp4 Donate to Counter Culture Ministries: http://bit.ly/3wganmo Unwanted No More Book: https://amzn.to/3xfjm5t 🔗 CONNECT WITH BJ GARRETT Website: https://bjgarrett.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/billyjo.garrett/http://www.facebook.com/billyjo.garrett  YouTube: https://bit.ly/3wkheek  🔗 CONNECT WITH COUNTER CULTURE MOM  https://linktr.ee/counterculturemom 📺 WATCH OUR PREVIOUS SHOWS https://bit.ly/fpmccmshow 📲 GET OUR APP & FREE PARENT MEDIA GUIDE http://bit.ly/landingpageccm 💵 SUPPORT THE MISSION 2022 Recap & 2023 Goals: https://bit.ly/ccmdonate2021 Make a Tax-Deductible Donation: https://counterculturemom.com/partner/

Ep. 337 - Child Protection Services Purposely “Loses” Thousands of Children Confirms Connie Reguli

January 30, 2023 • Tina Griffin

Deployed attorney, Connie Reguli, has been helping families fight the corruption of Child Protective Services (CPS) for the past 25 years. Founder of the Family Forward Foundation, Connie is dedicated to educating families on how to protect themselves from the government’s intrusion and training parents to advocate for legislative changes. She has dedicated her life to exposing the scandalous connection between CPS and the mysterious vanishings of thousands of children across the nation. In addition, Connie discovered overwhelming financial incentives for taking children out of their homes and shoving them into the foster care system. Strangely, reports of physical or sexual abuse accounts for only 15 percent of children removed from their homes and shoved into foster care. TAKEAWAYS Many children who are adopted into foster families disappear - nobody knows what happens to them or where they land up The foster care system is like a “middle class welfare program” that is funded by state and federal tax dollars More than 300,000 children per year go into the foster care system The Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997 put a price tag on every child’s head to remove them from their home and put them into the foster care system 🛠 TOOLS AND RESOURCES FROM EPISODE Covenant Eyes (FREE 30 days with code TINA): https://counterculturemom.com/victory/ Million Parent March Video: http://bit.ly/3j4ocyl LGBTQ Pedophile Ring: http://bit.ly/3h61lpm 🔗 CONNECT WITH CONNIE REGULI Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/conniereguli/?hl=enhttp://www.instagram.com/conniereguli?hl=en  Twitter: https://twitter.com/conniereguli  YouTube: http://bit.ly/3wsazav  🔗 CONNECT WITH FAMILY FORWARD FOUNDATION Website: https://familyforwardfoundation.com/  Facebook: https://bit.ly/3wmlsj3  🔗 CONNECT WITH COUNTER CULTURE MOM  https://linktr.ee/counterculturemom 📺 WATCH OUR PREVIOUS SHOWS https://bit.ly/fpmccmshow 📲 GET OUR APP & FREE PARENT MEDIA GUIDE http://bit.ly/landingpageccm 💵 SUPPORT THE MISSION 2022 Recap & 2023 Goals: https://bit.ly/ccmdonate2021 Make a Tax-Deductible Donation: https://counterculturemom.com/partner/

January 26, 2023 • Tina Griffin

Ep. 334 - Deeply Defining Grace and Mercy Clarifies Our Identity in Christ Confirms Janey Pitts

January 24, 2023 • Tina Griffin

Christians use words every day with reckless abandon, failing to understand what they mean. Janey Pitts is the author of Deeply Defined: Understanding Who You Are in Christ. Janey is also the Missions Mobilizer at New Work Fellowship, and discusses the importance of properly defining words like grace and holiness. Janey explains the delicate balance between doing things for the Lord and simply resting and being still in the Lord. “It’s important sometimes to just stop and BE,” she says. We don’t have to earn the Lord’s love or salvation. However, we are still called to use our gifts to glorify God. You don’t just sit and think about what God is calling you to do - it has to be accompanied by action! TAKEAWAYS Kaphar is a Hebrew word that means to cover, or atone for sin  Grace is when God gives us what we don’t deserve, and mercy is when God doesn’t give us what we do deserve  Salach is a Hebrew word that means to forgive, or to pardon  Obedience means hearing God’s Word and then living it out  🛠 TOOLS AND RESOURCES FROM EPISODE Book Promo Video: https://bit.ly/3zyoi90 Kerusso T-shirts (get 15% off with code TINA): http://bit.ly/3sbsjvn  Free Bible Study Discussion Guides: http://bit.ly/3cltg6i  Deeply Defined Book: https://amzn.to/3ksosic 🔗 CONNECT WITH JANEY PITTS Website: https://www.janeypitts.com/http://www.janeypitts.com  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/officialjaneypitts/http://www.facebook.com/officialjaneypitts  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/officialjaneypitts/http://www.instagram.com/officialjaneypitts  Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/coryjane/http://www.pinterest.com/coryjane  🔗 CONNECT WITH COUNTER CULTURE MOM  https://linktr.ee/counterculturemom 📺 WATCH OUR PREVIOUS SHOWS https://bit.ly/fpmccmshow 📲 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. 332 - Ben Myers Directs Families in Acting Out Biblical Adventures With Immersive App Experience

January 19, 2023 • Tina Griffin

After Ben Myers tried to capture the attention of his family for a time of Biblical study and worship to no avail, the Lord inspired him to put his theater background to good use. Ben cast his children in the roles of Biblical characters and encouraged them to act out Bible stories, resulting in a three-year process of re-enacting the scriptures together! This journey launched the creation of ActorsBible, an immersive, app-based experience that enables families to act out the Bible from their living rooms. The app includes visuals, dramatic music, a teleprompter script, and even sing-along lyrics. Ben encourages dads to step into their special role of family leadership and “direct” their children and spouse closer to Jesus.  TAKEAWAYS The ActorsBible leads participants through the Bible in 1-3 years  Ben explains how they built a 360 projection dome to create a fully immersive Biblical environment for the app Bringing the Bible to life helps children learn about Jesus and their identity in Christ at a young age and memorize scripture more easily There are spiritual evaluations to assess what lessons families can learn at the end of each Bible story in the app  🛠 TOOLS AND RESOURCES FROM EPISODE Pastors Abandoning Biblical Worldview: https://bit.ly/3w3hzpj  ActorsBible Video: https://bit.ly/3izpvfx   Inner-City Movement: https://www.icmovement.org/http://www.icmovement.org  🔗 CONNECT WITH ACTORS BIBLE Website: https://actors.bible/  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/actorsbiblehttp://www.facebook.com/actorsbible  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/actors.bible/http://www.instagram.com/actors.bible  Twitter: https://twitter.com/actorsbible1  YouTube: https://bit.ly/3qb21s5 🔗 CONNECT WITH COUNTER CULTURE MOM  https://linktr.ee/counterculturemom 📺 WATCH OUR PREVIOUS SHOWS https://bit.ly/fpmccmshow 📲 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. 331 - Scholars Separate Humanity From Personhood, Devaluing the Body Says Apologist Nancy Pearce

January 18, 2023 • Tina Griffin

Many bioethicists making arguments for secular practices like abortion or sex reassignment surgery are actively destroying the sanctity of life because being human, to them, is no longer enough for human rights, according to Nancy Pearcey. Nancy is one of the nation’s most respected female apologists and intellectuals. She has authored a phenomenal book, Love Thy Body, which takes a good, hard look at the confusion surrounding sexuality and humanity in today’s culture. Nancy explains how godless scholars separate humanity from personhood, and why it’s so important to embrace the God-given, harmonious design that He created for sex and sexuality. Nancy reminds us that when we live in harmony with that purpose, we will be happier and healthier.  TAKEAWAYS The godless agenda of transgenderism is targeting young children through television shows and in the public education system If you embrace same-sex relationships, you are implicitly contradicting God’s design for male-female complementarianism Christians need to understand the language of the lost to understand how to present the truth of the gospel There tends to be one underlying secular worldview that underscores issues like abortion, transgenderism, and feminism  🛠 TOOLS AND RESOURCES FROM EPISODE  Donate to Counter Culture Ministries: https://bit.ly/3wganmo  Love Thy Body Book: https://amzn.to/3if0ncn 🔗 CONNECT WITH NANCY PEARCEY Website: http://www.nancypearcey.com/http://www.nancypearcey.com  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nancyrpearceyauthor/http://www.facebook.com/nancyrpearceyauthor  Twitter: https://twitter.com/nancyrpearcey  🔗 CONNECT WITH COUNTER CULTURE MOM  https://linktr.ee/counterculturemom 📺 WATCH OUR PREVIOUS SHOWS https://bit.ly/fpmccmshow 📲 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. 330 - Many Youth Reject Christ Because Their Questions Go Unanswered Declares Dave Glander

January 17, 2023 • Tina Griffin

Former atheist Dave Glander was at the end of his rope, contemplating suicide, when he challenged God to “do something” about the desperate state of his life as a hopelessly addicted meth user. After weeping while he fell asleep, he felt supernaturally transformed the next morning, and went on a couple week journey to find out who had changed his life. Dave is a pastor, author, and apologist who shares his testimony around the world about his radical transformation through Jesus. Dave discusses how he came to the realization that he was living as if he were God for over three decades and once he gave his life to the one true God, he felt an overwhelming sense of peace. Much of his atheistic beliefs stemmed from public school where Darwinism and evolution were the only beliefs taught. TAKEAWAYS We must present the Bible as factual to our children - not just as a collection of fantastical stories Many youth do not have an interest in Jesus because their questions are being unanswered by their parents and pastors If you don’t know why you believe what you believe, your WHAT is useless What we believe directly affects how we live our lives in these end times 🛠 TOOLS AND RESOURCES FROM EPISODE Worldview Video: https://bit.ly/3fz3cxn  Pop Culture Purge Tour: Text the word TOUR to 55444 How Why Where Book: https://bit.ly/3bhmz5c  Faith Survival Guide: https://bit.ly/3hrnx0o  Did Jesus Commit Suicide?

Ep. 329 - To Be Salt & Light Professor Tawa Anderson Affirms Our Worldview Must Align With Scripture

January 16, 2023 • Tina Griffin

A worldview is the conceptual lens through which we see and interpret the world around us and understand our place in it. According to Tawa Anderson, a Biblical worldview is absolutely essential in a Christian’s life, but so many people don’t realize how powerfully their worldviews are intertwined with their day-to-day living behaviors. More importantly, these behaviors might not line up with scripture. Tawa is an Associate Professor of Philosophy and Apologetics and the author of the book, An Introduction to Christian Worldview. He shares his perspective on the impact of individual worldviews and presents his thoughts about the hit Christian series The Chosen, centered on the life of Jesus.  TAKEAWAYS It’s hard, but not impossible, to lead someone to salvation who doesn’t realize that they are lost  We need to understand and analyze the worldviews around us so we know how to share Jesus with those that have different beliefs We must constantly compare our current views with what scripture says to make sure they align A Biblical worldview should include reflection, adjustment, an analysis of behavior, culture shaping, and an understanding of personal values 🛠 TOOLS AND RESOURCES FROM EPISODE The Chosen Trailer: https://bit.ly/3cdskdr  Watch The Chosen Series: https://bit.ly/3xfdujl Worldview Bible Study From Summit Ministries: https://bit.ly/3fwk56d  Answers in Genesis (get 10% off with code AIGCCM10): https://bit.ly/aigccm  An Introduction to Christian Worldview Book: https://amzn.to/3xro4wv Why Believe Book: https://amzn.to/3qdaahe Generation Why Conference: https://bit.ly/3pglqql  🔗 CONNECT WITH TAWA ANDERSON Website: http://tawapologetics.blogspot.com/http://blogspot.com  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/tawa.andersonhttp://www.facebook.com/tawa.anderson  Twitter: https://twitter.com/tawaanderson  🔗 CONNECT WITH COUNTER CULTURE MOM  https://linktr.ee/counterculturemom 📺 WATCH OUR PREVIOUS SHOWS https://bit.ly/fpmccmshow 📲 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. 325 - After Dealing With Paralyzing Anxiety Pastor J.D. Peabody Teaches Others to Find Freedom

January 9, 2023 • Tina Griffin

At the end of his ropes, J.D. Peabody was taking a walk with his friend when he commented that he wasn’t an anxious person. His friend’s response was telling - he laughed - and J.D. realized that he was not who he thought he was! J.D. is the pastor of New Day Church and the author of the profound book, Perfectly Suited - The Armor of God for the Anxious Mind. J.D. explains how Christians tend to misunderstand their anxious thoughts, and why it’s important to find community and support when fear begins to take a foothold. Anxiety, he explains, is the secondary way of feeling things that are really about something else. J.D. also shares insight into how he turned his mental meltdown into the inspiration for a fantastic Biblically-based book to help people overcome their anxiety. TAKEAWAYS Peace is one of God’s greatest gifts to us  If you are anxious, recognize that you are NOT alone Don’t isolate yourself when you’re dealing with anxiety - reach out to the people around you and find help  Even if someone’s life looks perfect from the outside, realize that they are most likely struggling with something too  🛠 TOOLS AND RESOURCES FROM EPISODE Perfectly Suited: The Backstory Video: https://bit.ly/3hfnswv  Perfectly Suited Book: https://amzn.to/3vep4wo 🔗 CONNECT WITH J.D.

Ep. 324 - Gain Spiritual Strength Through Physical Fasting With Wendy Speake’s 40-Day Challenge

January 5, 2023 • Tina Griffin

Join Wendy Speake on January 9 to experience a remarkable 40-day journey aimed at ditching damaging addictions that separate us from the sufficiency of Jesus Christ. Wendy is the author and creator of many life-changing books such as The 40-Day Sugar Fast. She began facilitating an online community for moms who were struggling with anger and outbursts, destructive diets, and other addictions, and challenged them to ditch their bad habits for 40 days. “It’s a spiritual fast,” Wendy explains.
