#143 – Ask Me Anything (November 2017)

#143 – Ask Me Anything (November 2017)

One of the things I love to do is to answer your questions in an honest and practical way.  So every now and then, I dedicate a podcast to sharing my answers to some of the questions that you have asked. Now — don’t be shocked when you hear me talking fast on this episode.  I try really hard to get as many questions in as I can without making the show too long.  You have been warned!

In all seriousness, I see your questions.  You send them to me via email, social media, or in person when you meet me at a speaking event and it’s my desire to help in any way that I can.  Here’s what you need to know, if you have the question, someone else probably does too.  I share this Q&A because it helps us all to know that we are not the only one facing the situations that we are in and while sometimes the answers aren’t perfect or pretty, there is hope.


If you have question, you can always leave me a message or send me a voicemail by visiting chrystalevanshurst.com/askme. I look forward to hearing from you!

On today’s podcast I tackle a bunch of questions and I hope that you will be encouraged by the answers to a few of them. Here are some of the questions I tackle on this episode:

Highlight from Today’s Episode:

  • How can I survive a loveless marriage?
  • Why do you homeschool and what curriculum are you using to teach your kids?
  • What do you do to set healthy boundaries with overbearing family or friends?
  • Should I stay at my church if I’m not being fed spiritually?
  • How do you handle a husband who does not use encouraging and uplifting words in interactions with his wife?
  • How did you get started writing your book and finding a publisher?
  • I’m a mom of small kids.  What can I do to get out of the rut that I’m in?
  • If you could have a conversation with your thirty year old self, what wisdom would you share?
  • How do you continually find the motivation to work out?
  • What are some of the holiday traditions you enjoy in your family.

    Love your feedback!!! I too have seen God do the miraculous in loveless marriages. The Love Dare or The Power of a Praying wife are 2 resources that I would highly recommend to someone who is standing and fighting and also having friends that are in your corner encouraging you and praying for you. I also spent a season in a church where I know I was called to pour out and I got fueled through other avenues. We have to remember that the Pastor is human and growing too and I always loved that my Pastor had a Berean type bible study where he said he wanted us to come so he can learn from us too. God did release me but honestly it was still hard to go because I know I was serving a meaningful purpose. I just visited recently and was met with tears❤ Chrystal I don’t think there is a topic that you speak on that I don’t glean something. You are truly like the big sister that I always wanted. One who doesn’t mind taking the time to patiently walk with her little sisters and teach them all that you know. Thanks😙 I would gladly listen to any topic. And sorry my brain is mush right now after working last night, so nothing comes to mind. Love you

    What a blessing! I found many of the questions and definitely each answer tremendously helpful. Sometimes you may not be going through something but someone in your circle may so it is good to hear a Godly perspective on different situations.

    Thanks for taking the time to share so openly and honestly.

    God bless!

    My time to fold and put away laundry went by remarkably fast today while listening to your Podcast! What a wonderful Monday treat for me after such a full Thanksgiving holiday. You are such a blessing. Praying for your kingdom work.
