Beautifully Designed Podcast https://beautifullydesigned.com Ashley Loveday Shepherd Mon, 02 Dec 2019 02:13:24 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=5.3 https://beautifullydesigned.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/cropped-a-shepherd-32x32.jpg Beautifully Designed Podcast https://beautifullydesigned.com 32 32 This world can be a hard place to live. We move through our days trying to keep our head above the waves of insufficiency, unworthiness, and inferiority. The Lord has not called us to live under the weight of these imperfect expectations. Ashley Shepherd felt the Lord press a plea for radical revival in the hearts of women. She can’t sit by any longer, and is committing to sharing topics that resonate with every woman. She found herself overtaken by waves of postpartum depression, loss of identity, and weight gain, and she is here to show you the lifeline we have in Jesus. Rise above the waves, turn your eyes to Jesus, for He walks on the water. Fix your gaze on Him, for His hand is stretched out far.
