Little Things With Amber Albee Swenson
  • Who Am I? You Can Know God

    In the ninth episode of the "Who Am I?" series, we see that God reveals himself to anyone who comes to him with an open heart. Amber will also give lots of resources to help us get to know God better.

  • Who Am I? You Matter!

    In the eighth episode of the "Who Am I?" series, we confront the fear many of us have: What if it doesn't seem that what I am doing impacts the world at all? How do I know God didn't forget to gift me with some special gift to change the world? How can I be sure I matter to God?

    Amber mentions t...

  • Who Am I? You Don't Need More

    In the seventh episode of the "Who Am I?" series, I encourage you to stop waiting till it feels like you have enough: money, strength, education. You may never feel you have enough, so do hard things now with what you have.

  • Who Am I? With God You Are Strong Enough

    In the sixth episode of the "Who Am I?" series, we explore how often we talk ourselves out of things because they are hard. The Bible shows us that God works mightily despite our weaknesses.

  • Who Am I? You Are Forgiven

    In the fifth episode of the "Who Am I?" series, we take a look at shame. Left unchecked, shame can keep us paralyzed and not fully understanding the grace that Jesus' life, death, and resurrection provide. Instead of drowning in shame, bask in your identity as a forgiven child of God.

  • Who Am I? You Are Not Broken

    In the fourth episode of our "Who Am I?" series, we look at the problem with identifying as broken. Whatever scars you or I have from past or present hurts, God's Word shows us examples and passages that prove he is for us and totally capable of putting us back together.

  • Who Am I? You Are Not What You Do or Have Done

    In the third episode of our "Who Am I?" series, we'll look at achievements. It can be tempting to base our identity on our achievements, or lack thereof. The truth, of course, is that achievements are wonderful but fleeting, and not accomplishing something of worldly value doesn't mean we're wort...

  • Who Am I? Don't Base Your Worth on the Wrong Words

    Are you prone to thinking things like, "You are so stupid" or, "You don't matter"? What do the people around you say about how you live? As Christians, we live counter to culture, so we need to make sure our identity is based solely on God's words alone. We also need to learn to tell Satan to shu...

  • Who Am I? Body Image

    The statistics on women and body image are alarming, and having a positive self-image doesn't get easier with age. We'll have a candid conversation about who we are in Christ to combat the idealized worldly version of a woman that most of us will never be.

  • It Doesn't Matter What They Think

    This episode aired September 11, 2022, and offers the reminder that too often we believe our faulty feelings and/or what other people think about us. Instead, we need to rely on the truths of Scripture to know our worth.

  • Follow God Not Your Dreams

    We're heading all the way back to January 2021 for the next in our "Best of" series. If things aren't working out with your goals, this is a good reminder to follow God and let him take you where he wants you to go.

  • P Is for Power, Specifically Resurrection Power

    We continue our "Best of" series this month! So often we feel weak and defeated, but do you realize the Holy Spirit is alive in you? Please don't let the magnitude of that escape you. You have access to the same power that raised Jesus from the dead. This episode first aired June 19, 2022.

  • This IS Your Assignment

    Today we are starting our "Best of" series with the episodes that had the most listens in the last three years. This episode first aired July 3, 2022, and asks: Are you doing what you thought you'd be doing? The episode is about embracing the assignment God's given you, even if it isn't what you ...

  • Single on God's Time

  • Single as a Calling

    This is part two of our four-part series on being single. My dear friend Rhoda Wolle enlightens us about her life as a single woman of God. She is one of the most productive, joy-filled people I know. Talking to her is a reminder that being single is not a hardship and it certainly can't keep you...

  • A Season of Singleness

    Today we are starting a four-part series on being single. I look at this important topic from four different perspectives. Today you'll hear from Hannah Schermerhorn. She wrote a fantastic book on the lessons she learned through her season of being single.

  • Mental Wellness: A Conversation With Dr. Jennifer Londgren

    Today Dr. Jennifer Londgren talks about her new book: "A Guide to Mental and Emotional Wellness." We discuss biblical self-care, negative self-talk, and changing habits for a different outcome.

  • Faith Journeys: Linda Buxa

    This is the fourth and final episode in the "Faith Journeys" series. A lot of you are familiar with Time of Grace blogger and devotion writer Linda Buxa. I caught up with her to ask how things are going, where she finds her inspiration, and what's next.

    Here's Linda's blog post that she reads du...

  • Faith Journeys: Missy Martens

    Episode three of our "Faith Journeys" series brings us to Missy Martens. When I think of her, I think of grit, an amazing work ethic, and the confidence I haven't always had.

  • Faith Journeys: Katie Augustine

    In our second episode of "Faith Journeys," you'll meet the youngest blogger at Time of Grace. Katie Augustine is refreshing in all the right ways. I think you'll find as I did that she's solid in her faith and steady in her kingdom work. And also, she's my latest best friend, so there's that.

She's not one to spend a lot of time on the surface. She goes deep fast. I just know you're going to fall in love with her the way ...

  • Gospel-Centered Change: A Conversation With Dr. Joan Prince

    I heard Dr. Joan Prince speak at a leadership conference and couldn't wait for the opportunity to talk to her again. She's a woman who has overcome adversity and opposition. To this day, she's hard at work to bring about gospel-centered change.

    A little more about Dr. Joan Prince: She has serve...
