4.5 - Do Not Be Defined

Do Not Be Defined.png

Bestselling Author, Speaker, and Certified Daring Way™ and Dare to Lead™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks how feedback is essential for connection, but not all feedback should - or deserves -
to captivate our time or concern. Living vulnerably comes with 'heart boundaries', and our identity cannot be defined by the thoughts of those who do not understand our sacred truth, nor who refuse to participate in the same arena of brave wholehearted living.

4.4 - Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread

Our Daily Bread.jpg

Bestselling Author, Speaker, and Certified Daring Way™ and Dare to Lead™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks how she easily gets trapped in the victim mindset of believing her life will never change and God isn't providing NOW. To break free from this lie, she knows her heart must trust in WHO God says He is: a God who always provides - yesterday, TODAY, and tomorrow. It is our choice to receive or reject God's blessings, and recognize our daily 'manna' or constant provisions.

What if you believed you have everything you need RIGHT NOW and boldly moved into your future with peace rather than discontentment? *Faithfulness conquers unrest.*

2 Corinthians 9:8 (NLT):
And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.

Psalm 81:10 (NLT):
For it was I, the Lord your God,
who rescued you from the land of Egypt.
Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it with good things.

4.3 - Forgiveness Meditation

Forgiveness Meditation.jpg

Bestselling Author, Speaker, and Certified Daring Way™ and Dare to Lead™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks how a daily practice of forgiveness meditation can create a radical change in one's temperament, outlook, and truth. When we choose to love others with an empathetic heart and forgive for the sake of healing and connecting, we live boldly - free from the frustrations and energy that steal our light.

Ephesians 4:32 (NLT):
Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.

4.2 - The Courage to Be Seen

Feelings.jpg

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ and Dare to Lead™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks practical ways we can 1) approach loved ones who misunderstand us, and 2) move in close with others so they are not misunderstood. Both situations require vulnerability, but in our courage, needs can be met, relationships strengthened, and emotions solidified. Show up and identify with the feelings that linger beneath the surface - your heart, family, and friends will thank you.

Romans 12:15 (NLT):
Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep.

Not Enough and Who Do You Think You Are.jpg

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ and Dare to Lead™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks how many people read and listen to Brené Brown or Rachel Hollis' books, but cannot seem to transfer their head knowledge to courageous skill sets. Justine discusses her upcoming curriculum ''Authentic Enoughness", a four-month online self care program that teaches individuals how to take Brené's work and create sustainable change. She even gives a sneak peek of the 'Rumbling with Shame' session in which she helps viewers identify their self-conscious responses (e.g. shame, guilt, humiliation, and embarrassment) and utilize them for personal growth and development.

3.27 - The Fruits 7: Faith Cannot Be Black & White

The Fruits 7_ Faith Cannot be Black and White.jpg

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ and Dare to Lead™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks how her thorn of striving may keep her from producing fruit, but with the Holy Spirit's guidance, she CAN be an unshakable, faithful, joyful woman of God -who will NOT 'put aside human hearts' when speaking about Jesus. Justine met Jesus through her messy words, and knows others need to be heard and found in their 'complicated gray' too. Wrestling with faith is the farthest thing from 'black and white' religion.

Ephesians 4:29 (TPT):
29 And never let ugly or hateful words come from your mouth, but instead let your words become beautiful gifts[a] that encourage others; do this by speaking words of grace to help them.

Galatians 5:22 (TPT):
But the fruit produced by the Holy Spirit within you is divine love in all its varied expressions:
joy that overflows,
peace that subdues,
patience that endures,
kindness in action,
a life full of virtue,
faith that prevails,
gentleness of heart, and
strength of spirit.
Never set the law above these qualities, for they are meant to be limitless.

The Fruits 6_ Work Those Gifts for Him.jpg

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ and Dare to Lead™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks how the thorns of her heart will keep growing and stifling her growth, as a professional and follower of Jesus, as long as she continues to work on her own terms and motives. Justine realizes that if she trusts God with her gifts and the timing of His blessings, the 'fruit' that will come of her work will be more than anything her efforts alone could produce.

The Complicated Gray by Justine Froelker

Luke 19: 26-27 (TPT):
26 “‘Yes,’ replied the king. ‘But to all who have been faithful, even more will be given them. And for the ones who have nothing, even the little they seem to have will be taken from them. 27 Now, bring all those rebellious enemies of mine who rejected me as their king—bring them here before me and execute them!’”

Galatians 5:22 (TPT):
But the fruit produced by the Holy Spirit within you is divine love in all its varied expressions:
joy that overflows,
peace that subdues,
patience that endures,
kindness in action,
a life full of virtue,
faith that prevails,
gentleness of heart, and
strength of spirit.
Never set the law above these qualities, for they are meant to be limitless.

Luke 8:14-15 (TPT):
14 The seed that falls into the weeds represents the hearts of those who hear the word of God but their growth is quickly choked off by their own anxious cares, the riches of this world, and the fleeting pleasures of this life. This is why they never become mature and fruitful. 15 The seed that fell into good, fertile soil represents those lovers of truth who hear it deep within their hearts. They respond by clinging to the word, keeping it dear as they endure all things in faith. This is the seed that will one day bear much fruit in their lives.

3.25 - The Fruits 5: Heart of Thorns

The Fruits 5.jpg

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ and Dare to Lead™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks how her heart has become overgrown with the thorns of this world, choking her peace and preventing fruit of life. In order for our spiritual lives to 'bloom' as Jesus intended, we must repent from whatever is keeping our soil from growing fruits that truly satisfy - and THEN we can be joyful, faithful, unshakeable.

What type of soil is YOUR heart?
Is it replete of His word, and devotion to Him?

Galatians 5:22 (TPT):
But the fruit produced by the Holy Spirit within you is divine love in all its varied expressions:
joy that overflows,
peace that subdues,
patience that endures,
kindness in action,
a life full of virtue,
faith that prevails,
gentleness of heart, and
strength of spirit.
Never set the law above these qualities, for they are meant to be limitless.

John 15:4-5 (NLT):
4 Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. 5 “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.

Luke 8:11-15 (NLT):
This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is God’s word. 12 The seeds that fell on the footpath represent those who hear the message, only to have the devil come and take it away from their hearts and prevent them from believing and being saved. 13 The seeds on the rocky soil represent those who hear the message and receive it with joy. But since they don’t have deep roots, they believe for a while, then they fall away when they face temptation. 14 The seeds that fell among the thorns represent those who hear the message, but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the cares and riches and pleasures of this life. And so they never grow into maturity. 15 And the seeds that fell on the good soil represent honest, good-hearted people who hear God’s word, cling to it, and patiently produce a huge harvest.

Luke 8:11-15 (TPT):
Here, then, is the deeper meaning to my parable: The word of God is the seed that is sown into hearts. 12 The hard pathway represents the hard hearts of men who hear the word of God but the slanderer quickly snatches away what was sown in their hearts to keep them from believing and experiencing salvation. 13 The seed falling on the gravel represents those who initially respond to the word with joy, but soon afterward, when a season of harassment of the enemy and difficulty come to them, they wither and fall away, for they have no root in the truth and their faith is temporary. 14 The seed that falls into the weeds represents the hearts of those who hear the word of God but their growth is quickly choked off by their own anxious cares, the riches of this world, and the fleeting pleasures of this life. This is why they never become mature and fruitful. 15 The seed that fell into good, fertile soil represents those lovers of truth who hear it deep within their hearts. They respond by clinging to the word, keeping it dear as they endure all things in faith. This is the seed that will one day bear much fruit in their lives.

3.24 - The Fruits 4: I AM Fruitful

The Fruits 4_.jpg

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ and Dare to Lead™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks her discovery of the word 'fruitful' in her life, and her God-given name. Through prayer, meditation, and conversations with dear friends, Justine's identity comes to life. By abiding in Christ, she will always be fruitful, regardless of the size of her family or work she produces.

True 'fruitfulness' is "divine love in all its varied expressions," as God's children remain in HIM, and He also in them.

Song of Songs 2: 10-13 (TPT):
The Bridegroom-King:
Arise, my dearest. Hurry, my darling.
Come away with me!
I have come as you have asked to draw you to my heart and lead you out.
For now is the time, my beautiful one.
The season has changed,
the bondage of your barren winter has ended, and the season of hiding is over and gone.
The rains have soaked the earth and left it bright with blossoming flowers.
The season for singing and pruning the vines has arrived.
I hear the cooing of doves in our land,
filling the air with songs to awaken you and guide you forth.
Can you not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around you?
The early signs of my purposes and plans are bursting forth.
The budding vines of new life are now blooming everywhere.
The fragrance of their flowers whispers, “There is change in the air.”
Arise, my love, my beautiful companion, and run with me to the higher place.
For now is the time to arise and come away with me.

Galatians 5:22 (TPT):
But the fruit produced by the Holy Spirit within you is divine love in all its varied expressions:
joy that overflows,
peace that subdues,
patience that endures,
kindness in action,
a life full of virtue,
faith that prevails,
gentleness of heart, and
strength of spirit.

3.23 - The Fruits 3: Healing in Connection

The Fruits 3_.jpg

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ and Dare to Lead™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks how 'kindness in action' means owning the truth of your BIG story, even when others might question your life - with genuine love and curiosity. Owning your story may surprise people, but when it aligns with what God wants, you cannot avoid finding happiness and peace. Because it is in 'The Complicated Gray' spaces of life that we can wonder, yearn, and mourn our sadness, and also pursue and RECEIVE joy IN our messy stories.

Galatians 5:22 (TPT):
But the fruit produced by the Holy Spirit within you is divine love in all its varied expressions:
joy that overflows,
peace that subdues,
patience that endures,
kindness in action,
a life full of virtue,

3.22 - The Fruits 2: Unsteady Security

The Fruits 2_.jpg

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ and Dare to Lead™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks how her quiet time observing spider webs led her to realize how she misplaces her security in the tenuous strands of accomplishments and accolades rather than her relationship with Jesus. To live a life full of the peace and virtue she so craves, Justine must truly KNOW where her 'enoughness' lies.

Job 8:13-15 (VOICE):
So it goes with any who forget God.
The hope of the godless soon withers and dies.
His confidence breaks, for he trusts in the tenuous threads of a spider’s web. When he leans into his house of silken threads for support, it won’t hold. Though his arms grab to steady him, it will break—he will fall and never get back up.

Galatians 5:22 (TPT):
But the fruit produced by the Holy Spirit within you is divine love in all its varied expressions:
joy that overflows,
peace that subdues,
patience that endures,
kindness in action,
a life full of virtue,
faith that prevails,
gentleness of heart, and
strength of spirit.

The Fruits_ I Am Your Peace.jpg

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ and Dare to Lead™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks how her first experience as a keynote speaker made her realize a gifting from the Holy Spirit: the fruit of 'peace that subdues' across feeling and circumstance. A peace that has made her a child of God rather than a slave to fear - a woman far different than the girl before her infertility journey.

Join Justine as she explores part one of a new 'Fruits of the Spirit' series.

3.20 - How to Receive the Gifts

How to Receive the Gifts.jpg

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ and Dare to Lead™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks how our deepest fears write our stories UNLESS we CHOOSE to do the hard work of 'wrestle, rumble, and RISE.' Rising above our circumstances involves speaking truth about ourselves, our situations, and the One who called us to create. Once we realize the tender mercies of His instructions, and that our work is meant to glorify Him, we can find true rest - and receive His gifts.

Psalm 119:77 (NLT):
Surround me with your tender mercies so I may live,
for your instructions are my delight.

Armoring Up Isn't Protection.jpg

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ and Dare to Lead™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks how our greatest self-defense mechanisms are the worst offenders to our sacred truth. When we close ourselves up from being vulnerable with others, for whatever reason, we prevent our light from being shown and cause our closest relationships that were always meant to help us through tough times suffer, and even suffocate. We must bare our hearts to risk the most wonderful reward: love. Jesus didn't fight with armor. He bore his soul to save.

2 Timothy 1:7 (TPT):
For God will never give you the spirit of fear, but the Holy Spirit who gives you mighty power, love, and self-control.

3.18 - How Our Stubborn Minds Keep Us From Knowing Our Power

Stubborn Minds.jpg

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ and Dare to Lead™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks how even the disciples had to WORK at renewing their minds every day, otherwise they fell into their human tendency of forgetting the sovereign power available to them - if they only surrendered their entire being and refused to let their hearts harden to the miracles performed before their very eyes. If they needed the daily reminder as they walked and performed miracles with Jesus, how much more do we need to dive into The Word and practice self care to love Jesus, ourselves, and others to our fullest?

In our trust there is power.

Mark 6:41-44 (NLT):
41 Jesus took the five loaves and two fish, looked up toward heaven, and blessed them. Then, breaking the loaves into pieces, he kept giving the bread to the disciples so they could distribute it to the people. He also divided the fish for everyone to share. 42 They all ate as much as they wanted, 43 and afterward, the disciples picked up twelve baskets of leftover bread and fish. 44 A total of 5,000 men and their families were fed.

Romans 12:2:
2 Do not allow this world to mold you in its own image. Instead, be transformed from the inside out by renewing your mind. As a result, you will be able to discern what God wills and whatever God finds good, pleasing, and complete.

3.17 - The Great Rachel Hollis/Self Care is a Sin Debate

The Great Rachel Hollis Debate.jpg

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ and Dare to Lead™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks how self care is neither selfish nor sinful, but rather life-saving and life-giving. If we cannot love ourselves and follow Jesus' example of practicing self care in solitude to 'fill ourselves' up, we cannot live and love as He did, offering our gifts to the world to our fullest capacities. ...And none of this involves shaming other influencers, like Rachel Hollis, or disputing their methods of helping people live their best selves.

Matthew 14:23 (VOICE):
Then, after the crowd had gone, Jesus went up to a mountaintop alone (as He had intended from the start). As evening descended, He stood alone on the mountain, praying.

Matthew 26:36 (VOICE):
At that, Jesus led His disciples to the place called Gethsemane.
Jesus: I am going over there to pray. You sit here while I’m at prayer.

Matthew 22:37-39 (TPT):
Jesus answered him, “‘Love the Lord your God with every passion of your heart, with all the energy of your being, and with every thought that is within you.’ This is the great and supreme commandment. And the second is like it in importance: ‘You must love your friend in the same way you love yourself.’

Mark 1:29 (VOICE):
Right after they left the synagogue, Jesus went with James and John to the home of Simon and Andrew.

Mark 3:13 (VOICE):
Jesus called together a select group of His followers and led them up onto a mountain.

Mark 6:31 (VOICE):
Jesus (to the disciples): Let us go out into the wilderness for a while and rest ourselves.
The crowds gathered as always, and Jesus and the twelve couldn’t eat because so many people came and went.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (TPT):
Have you forgotten that your body is now the sacred temple of the Spirit of Holiness, who lives in you? You don’t belong to yourself any longer, for the gift of God, the Holy Spirit, lives inside your sanctuary. You were God’s expensive purchase, paid for with tears of blood, so by all means, then, use your body to bring glory to God!

And only in this bold place of vulnerability and connection can healing, restoration, and hope take place.

We CHOOSE bravery and courage by stepping into the unknown possibilities and becoming the person we were created to be.

Isaiah 43:19 (NLT):
For I am about to do something new.

To regain power over our stories, Justine implements forgiveness and 'death of self' to overcome her demands on the world. Above all, she stops going to 'empty wells' that are dry of water, void of any life-giving sustenance.
