A wife, mama to four, business owner, Jesus lover, and recovered people-pleasing Christian. I have been teaching, encouraging, and leading people for over 15 years. Despite having grown up on a church pew, there came a time in my walk with the Lord when I realized I was following the Christian checklist of things to do right vs an actual relationship with our loving father. I knew it wasn’t right and that something had to change. I started asking the Lord to give me a hunger for His presence and His Word that only He could give. And boy did He show up. I was more in love with Jesus than I had ever been. And now He has called me to serve you with this podcast.

103. From Guilt to Grace: Beating Shame & Finding Freedom in Jesus with Brittney Deckerhoff
Hey friend!
In this episode of the Abundant Women Collective podcast, Samantha Semans and Brittany Deckerhoff discuss the topic of shame and its impact on women.
Brittney is a fun-loving Bible teacher who breaks down spiritual truths, bringing power and freedom to women of all ages. Her contagious humor and wit lay the perfect foundation for the Holy Spirit to do deep work in the hearts of her audience. Brittney currently working alongside Let’s Echo. A ministry that equips and empowers women speakers.
On today's episode, we explore the difference between guilt and shame, the paralyzing effect of shame, and the importance of finding freedom and purpose. We also emphasize the role of community, repentance, and partnering with Jesus to overcome shame and live out one's purpose.
Takeaways
Shame is an intensely painful feeling of believing that we are flawed and unworthy of love and belonging.
Guilt is holding something we've done or failed to do against our values and feeling psychological discomfort.
Shame can paralyze us and keep us from moving forward in what God has for us.
Repentance and partnering with Jesus are essential for overcoming shame and living out one's purpose.
Community plays a crucial role in uplifting and reminding us of who God made us to be, helping us overcome shame and fear.
Sharing our stories and opening our mouths allows Jesus to set us free and use our experiences for good.
I can't wait for you to listen to this conversation and even find freedom from any shame that may be holding you back!
Until next time,
Sam

96. The Good Shepherd's Promise: Finding Rest in the Chaos of Motherhood
 
Hey friends!In honor of Mother's Day, I decided to have a little fun and bring on my oldest daughter, Grace for a quick interview. Listen to some of her sweet answers in this episode.
After our interview, we explore the sacred calling of motherhood and the profound ways in which God's care sustains and strengthens mothers through every season of life. Through candid conversations and heartfelt reflections, I encourage Christian mothers to find rest and comfort in the loving embrace of the Good Shepherd, who tenderly cares for His flock.
Through scriptural insights and personal anecdotes, we unpack the profound truth of Isaiah 40:11, reminding listeners of the shepherd's promise to tend His flock, gather the lambs in His arms, and gently lead those who are with young. As we reflect on the symbolism of the shepherd's care and provision,  there is a message of hope and encouragement to weary mothers, inviting them to find solace and renewal in the restorative love of God.
Whether you're navigating the challenges of motherhood, seeking encouragement in your faith journey, or simply longing for a moment of rest in the midst of life's chaos, this episode offers a beacon of hope and inspiration. 
Until next time,
Sam
