Redeemed & Restored: CELEBRATING 50 EPISODES

Ep 50 Thumbnail

“Ask God to show you.”

Today’s episode of Redeemed & Restored is entitled: ‘Celebrating 50 Episodes’. Wounds become idols if they are not healed by the living God. What happens when we fall into idolatry? We must do all we can to not be deceived, by ourselves, those around us or the enemy at work. Today as we celebrate 50 years, we include a call to action, to stay alert and be on guard, Jesus alerts us so much in scripture and for good reason. Thank you for joining us in celebrating 50 episodes full of God’s glory at work! 

Questions Discussed

  • Are you practicing what you preach?
  • Are you being vulnerable?
  • Are you being deceived?

Episode Verses

  • Ephesians 5-6: “Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient. Therefore do not be partners with them.”

Athena Dean Holtz Episode Quotes

  • “We wanted to declare all the ways God had redeemed and restored me, by unpacking what had left me vulnerable to deception and learning anew all the ways He was faithfully working all things together for good.”
  • “He continues to restore me and so I wanted this place to be somewhere to embrace the healing the Lord provides.”
  • “A huge turning point in my healing was when I asked God to show me where I opened the door to deception.”


Deception. Are you being deceived? What is deception? Transformation. Being transformed.

Welcome, I'm Athena!

I start each day by tithing the first hour to the Lord in prayer, reading the word, doing word studies of the Text, and asking God how I can live out what I am reading. This time is usually met with meditation on devotionals that are usually written by dead guys like Oswald Chambers, CS Lewis, Charles Spurgeon, AW Tozer, and Andrew Murray.

Right now, I’m reading a daily devotional with a friend called Tozer on the Almighty God for my focus for the day. It's fun to see individually what pulls us in to spur one another on to good deeds!

The Bible is filled with action steps to walk out in practical and intentional ways. This sets my day in motion to walk it out! I hope this is your heart, too.

Consider this a personal invitation to join me in this journey!
