Weekly News, Vol 40

Hello People of Purpose!

Season three of Our Given Purpose the Podcast and Talking on Purpose with Torrie, is complete! We have learned so much about ourselves and you. If we had some confetti, we would throw it in your direction. Celebrating small victories gives us hope. Let us keep pressing forward to becoming more like Christ and walking in our given purpose.

 Season four will begin on Tuesday, May 5, 2020! Our next 12-week session focuses on Arrogance and Pride.

While we are away, we pray you will enjoy some “best of” podcasts and episodes of Talking on Purpose with Torrie the Internet Show. These will air on Tuesdays and Wednesdays the whole month of April. Please continue to journal and cooperate with God while plotting your course of action. 

Season Three of Our Given Purpos® the ministry produced 24 podcasts including 6 interviews, 12 episodes of Talking on Purpose with Torrie, the Internet Show, 12 Bible devotionals, and 2 audio dramas featuring Onyx and Ruby. We have discussed how Anger rules our lives and ruins relationships. James 1:19-21 was our focal scripture for this session. Our final two podcasts included a word study to encourage continued research as we meditate on God’s Word. Please use the journal prompts to take your reflection deeper and ask God to be with you as you relive stressful events. The purpose of this year is to gain clarity, organize our plans, and strategically follow God’s assignment for our lives.


On Tuesday, January 7, 2020, Our Given Purpose, the Podcast began the  course of identifying our major emotional blocks.  We start with anger and work our way through arrogance, pride, and fear. Each of these extreme emotions breeds and molds our character.  

This year my prayer is that we will all pause before we speak or react. In doing so, we become doers of the Word and not just hearers of it. James 1:19-21 is the foundation of this first 12 -week session
