Five Empty Promises of Our Culture w/Jen Oshman | Ep. 190

Episode 190

Come chat with Shelby and Jen Oshman and they discuss five empty promises of our culture: beauty and body image, abortion, gender fluidity, sexual encounters, and marriage and motherhood. Jen opens up about how she’s seen these empty promises cause pain to women countless times over her two decades of disciplining young women. She also shares how we can live a God-centered life in a culture that is constantly telling us we should be the center of our own lives. This is a thought provoking conversation for all those who struggle with knowing how to remain steadfast to biblical beliefs in an ever changing culture.
