Googling for God :: Francie Winslow {Ep. 8}

Declare show

Summary: <br> I meet a lot of godly women through this whole Christian devotional blogging thing. But I have to tell y’all, Francie Winslow rises to the top in my opinion.<br> <a href=""></a><br> Francie’s heart for authentic relationship with her Savior is unmistakably pure. Her desire to set women free from all that entraps them is undeniably powerful.<br> Francie received her Masters in Evangelism &amp; Leadership from Wheaton College. And her thesis was entitled, “Blogging as Discipleship”. Through interviews and surveys she researched if stay-at-home moms were seeking God online.<br> She discovered people were “Googling for God.” <br> In today’s episode Francie shares truth in regards to experiencing God in our day-to-day busy lives. In fact she has written an ebook on the topic, “The God Experience”.<br> “God wants us to reveal His heart in the midst of our real life.” -Francie Winslow<br> Believe it or not, your connection with God overflows into how you approach the work you do online. Francie refers to this concept as: “approaching life from a place of internal rest.” If we know Whose we are and what He has planned for us, we can approach Twitter and Pinterest with peace instead of comparison and stress.<br> What we talk about in this episode:<br> <br> <br> * What steps led her to rebrand her blog to her proper name.<br> * Which company she used to help transfer her site to self-hosted<br> * The ebook she has written to help readers connect with her heart<br> * “The God Experience” Summer 10-week book study–starting next Thursday, June 19th<br> <br> * How to seek God and find a place of internal rest before approaching our blogs &amp; social media<br> * (pst…and we mention how Francie is due “any day”…well that day came between our recording and today.
