A Surprising Conversation About Singleness | Interview with Danielle Treweek show art A Surprising Conversation About Singleness | Interview with Danielle Treweek

Bold, Brave & Beautiful Podcast with Barb Roose

Singles often feel left out of church and the gospel, even though Jesus and the Apostle Paul were single. Even when churches preach the significance of singleness from the platform, singles often feel alone and left out in the culture of the church which seems to be built similar to Noah’s Ark, that everyone is in sets of two. In her new book, Dr. Danielle Treweek, an Aussie single Jesus-follower, talks with my fabulous podcast producer Tabitha about the eschatological view of singleness and they have a surprising conversation that will raise the eyebrows of those who are married or single....

So I had to rethink what He might mean by leaving it there.”

Friends, I LOVED my conversation with Melissa because we're talk about depression, mental health and how to live WELL in hard times. So, so good! And I’ve read and proudly endorsed her new book, The Radiant Midnight: Depression, Grace and the Gifts of a Dark Place. It’s a must-now read if you’ve struggled with depression or just being in a hard place in life. Melissa shows us how God brings beauty and grace into the darkness of Midnight; sometimes we just need someone who has been there too helpus discover it.

Here are some highlights from our conversation today:

  • That God isn't waiting for us to get it together.
  • That there is no darkness too dark for God.
  • That the purpose of suffering isn't simply to get out of it. 
  • That we can have Joy in the midst of difficulty.
