Whitney’s passion for both the Word of God and women is so clear. We couldn’t help but nod in agreement as she shared from her heart and from her new book and Bible Study in this episode. Don’t miss a lot of helpful links in today’s show notes (including where you can hear Whitney teach live this year)!
Whitney Capps is a national speaker for Proverbs 31 Ministries and a writer for the new Bible app, First 5, reaching more than 1,000,000 people daily. As a Bible study geek, Whitney’s delight is to dig into God’s Word for profound yet practical truth. A communicator at heart, Whitney comes alive by sharing those truths with any gal who will give her even a few minutes. In her former life she served as a Talent Acquisitions professional at Chick-fil-A’s corporate office, which gave her a deep love for helping women connect their passion with their purpose for the glory of God.
A girly-girl living with all boys, Whitney and her husband Chad are raising their four sons, Cooper, Dylan, Ryder, and Tate just outside Atlanta, Georgia. Her house is wild, loud and littered with Legos. Whitney is addicted to shoes, jewelry, and ice crunching. Additionally, Whitney served her community as her local Bible Study Fellowship Teaching Leader.
We Over Me: Letters of Hope from Revelation (Bible Study)
Quote Us:[tr-shareit ]”I somehow started living a life that was Gospel adjacent, but not Gospel centered. It sent me to Scripture to start studying what part of brokenness and confession plays in the Christian life… I was pursuing self-help instead of sanctification.” @whitneycapps #MarkedPodcast[/tr-shareit] [tr-shareit ]”Sometimes knowing more about ourself is beneficial in that it helps us crucify our flesh, not celebrate it.” @whitneycapps #MarkedPodcast[/tr-shareit] [tr-shareit ]”Sanctification is living and loving and looking more like Jesus tomorrow than I did today. That’s it.” @whitneycapps #MarkedPodcast[/tr-shareit] [tr-shareit ]”My first point of confession should never be to another human being. I shouldn’t be confessing something to you that I have not dealt with the Holy Spirit about, because if I am, what I’m asking you to do is affirm me, not hold me accountable.” @whitneycapps #MarkedPodcast[/tr-shareit]
[tr-shareit ]”Transparency can’t just be airing all the junk… The reality is, we have to be able to also say transparently, ‘I look more like Jesus today than I did yesterday, but because of the Gospel, there is actual hope that you and I can be better than we were yesterday.’ That’s what women are desperate to hear.” @whitneycapps #MarkedPodcast[/tr-shareit][tr-shareit ]”We are often doing spiritual things to feel better, rather than doing spiritual things to actually be better. That’s the massive chasm between self-help and sanctification. Self-help’s endgame is my happiness, and sanctification’s endgame is my holiness.” @whitneycapps #MarkedPodcast[/tr-shareit]
