E: 49 Unraveled with Rachel Craddock


Slowly Unraveled with Rachel Craddock

Is the Gospel really changing your life? We know it should make a difference, but if we are honest, change is hard and messy. On today’s episode, Rachael Craddock joins Karen Hodge to talk about how the gospel has been slowly unraveling her past, to make her a new creation in Christ.

Discussion Questions:

  • What is the difference between shame and guilt?
  • In Ephesians 4, what are you to put off and put on?
  • Describe a time when your plans went out the window, and you had to trust in God’s plan.
  • How do you identify with Rachael’s struggle with control?
  • What Bible verses apply to your area of struggle?
  • Who can you lean on to help you hold on to the truth?
