When you read today's headlines, it's hard not to be afraid: the U.S. and world powers' agreement over Iran's nuclear program, the Supreme Court decision allowing same sex marriages, five U.S. Marines killed in Chattanooga, Jade Helm 15, riots, unstable world economies, earthquakes, hurricanes, new diseases, and more. But Jesus doesn't want us to be afraid. He told us that all these things would happen before His coming. In this podcast, International Speaker Beth Jones shares Scriptures about the end times, the different views on the Rapture, the seven year Tribulation, today's news headlines in America, and how God wants us to respond to all these events taking place: to trust in and have faith in Him. You don't need to be afraid; you can have peace and faith in the storm. To find out more about Beth's speaking and books, visit http://www.BethJones.net.

The Supreme Court ruling on same sex marriage. Abortion. Hurricanes. Earthquakes. Racial tensions, shootings, riots. The threat of nuclear weapons against Israel. People murdering others. The blood moons. So much tragedy and evil is happening today. Jesus told us it would happen and that they are the signs of His coming. In this podcast, I share from my friend Diane Bishop's teachings on the end times, what the Bible says, and my own beliefs about the rapture and the ending of this world. No matter what your doctrinal beliefs are, what gender, age, economic background or culture, God wants you to use your spiritual gifts, talents, and skills for His purpose and glory. It's time to fulfill YOUR calling! At the end of the podcast, I also share about my new fiction book, Storm Tossed, coming July 2015.

Have you ever been through a bad storm-a hurricane, a tornado, or a thunderstorm? Recently my husband Ray and I went through a terrifying thunderstorm in Texas: it was lightning, hailing, and whole trees had fallen across the highway that were like an obstacle course. God protected us and brought us back safely to Ray's parents' home there. What about a spiritual/emotional storm such as the events which just happened in Charleston, SC, where a young man, Dylann Roof, allegedly shot and killed 9 people inside the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church? How do you even begin to cope with such a tragedy? In this podcast, I share how difficult forgiveness is in a situation like this and yet God commands it in Mark 11:25 and Matthew 18:21-22. Listen in as I testify from my own life how Jesus can be your peace and your anchor even in the worst storms of life, and about my new, first-ever fiction book I'm writing, Storm Tossed.

Have you ever seen some cute shoes at a store but they didn't fit-or you bought them and then tried them on at home for the first time and they didn't fit? God created you for a unique, great purpose. You can't walk in anyone else's shoes and succeed! So many women compare themselves to other women and feel jealous and envious of them. The Bible says that envy rots the bones. (Proverbs 14:30) It also says in James 3:16 NLT, "For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind." God doesn't want you to feel envious, jealous or "less than" anyone else. Comparison is a big distraction and a trap that will trip you up in your walk with God. Just be unique you, walking in the beautiful "glass slippers" (purpose) for which God created you.

I've made a lot of mistakes in my life. Have lots of regrets. Truly received an excellent education from "the school of hard knocks." One of those places where I've made many mistakes is in my online biz as a speaker, author, and entrepreneur. I wish I'd had someone from the beginning to show me the way to success, to avoid all those mistakes. But now I can pass them onto you to help you avoid them and to achieve your success easier and faster! I've done many things that have scared me, like speaking publicly (I used to be terrified of it, but now love it!), doing webinars and telecalls, and creating vidoes on YouTube. Sometimes you have to go the places that scare you to achieve your purpose, to grow as a person, and to help and encourage others.

My husband Ray and I recently traveled to Texas for his college LeTourneau University's dedication service and reunion for their original EMS program, of which Ray was a part and when he worked as an EMT for the city of Longview, TX. While there, we stayed with his mom Judy and his stepdad Leonard near Quitman, TX. Their house is located on a beautiful, peaceful lake. On their back deck they have a bird and hummingbird feeder. I loved getting up early in the morning, praying, enjoying the beautiful lake, and watching the birds. It was the first time I'd seen a hummingbird in person. I decided when I came home to Missouri, I'd get a bird and hummingbird feeder. Yesterday I bought them and have loved watching them feed. Today as I observed the sparrows feeding, it reminded me of believers sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with others. Through technology and social media (like this podcast at Podbean and Itunes), you and I have an amazing opportunity for a global platform! This podcast is about telling the good news of what God has done in your life. To find out more about me as a speaker and about my books, visit http://www.BethJones.net.

Several years ago Ray and I traveled to Israel, my dream come true. We took way too much luggage for this trip and it hindered us as we traveled. We had a really hard time fitting those huge suitcases into our tour guide's tiny car, and it was such a pain dragging them around all of Israel, from hotel to hotel! You and I can do this in life, too, carrying unnecessary weights, like unforgiveness, anger, bitterness, envy, jealousy, worry, stress, fear, anxiety, discouragement, depression, etc. Jesus wants us to "pack light" on this journey of life. He said in Matthew 11:28, NLT, "Then Jesus said, 'Come to Me, all of you who are weary and carry heaven burdens, and I will give you rest." I recorded this podcast several years ago. It's about having that daily quiet time with God and running this race unencumbered. Come join me for the adventure of a lifetime and be sure to "pack light."

Beth Jones doesn't always want to do her kickboxing exercise video or to walk. But sometimes you have to do the hard things to get where God wants us to go and be who we desire to be. In this almost hour-long podcast, International Speaker/Author Beth Jones shares from her heart how she has had to do the hard things - in the trenches of prayer, homeschooling her children, overcoming through many adversities in her very difficult marriage, and reaching for success in her online business of speaking and writing. When you do the hard things, you WILL reap the harvest of God's BLESSING if you just don't quit and give up!
