On today’s episode of the Journeywomen podcast, I’m chatting with Nana Dolce about growing in godliness. We talked about everything from when we could see traces of our own desire to grow in godliness, to what, or better yet, who, sustains our sanctification today! The only problem with this interview is that the entire thing is quote worthy. I wanted to copy and paste everything Nana said into the intro. But here’s one snippet to give y’all a taste of what’s to come, “Remembering the one who bled for me, who died for me, who resurrected for me, who ascended for me, who is interceding for me. Who has prayed for my sanctification. Jesus prayed for my sanctification. 1 Corinthians says that he is my sanctification. So the one who achieved all of that for me. When I hear passages like that of keeping my eyes on him so that I please him, it motivates me to run!”
Y’all are going to be fist-pumping, dancing, running-around-excited about what God did for us through our justification and what he continues to do in our sanctification every. single. day! Nana also speaks to those of us who feel like we’re watching grass grow when it comes to growing in godliness. I am so thankful to be dancing, crawling, limping, and running with you guys, even at a distance.
So you’ll know her a little better, Nana was born in Ghana. She lives today in Washington D.C. with her husband Eric, and two home-schooled daughters. She has a Master of Arts in Theological Studies and served for nearly seven years as the Director of Outreach for a local church. She has a passion for women's biblical literacy. You can find more from her over at motherhoodandsanctity.com.
Guys, this stands out as one of the most helpful episodes of Journeywomen to date. I am so thankful for Nana’s encouragement to rest in Jesus as he is the founder and perfecter of our faith.
