L.a.b.chats With Krista Pettiford



Hello, Beloved! I'm Krista Pettiford, host of L.A.B. Chats - conversations with God's daughters about how His love, acceptance, and beauty shapes our identities and the way we live out our faith. Each week I'll share from my heart or I'll have a guest on the show. My guests will be women from diverse backgrounds that stand on the common ground of God's sacred unifying grace. These chats will make you laugh and cry but most importantly I hope they will help you see through the eyes of Gods grace that you are more alike than different from other women. And, hopefully, you will come away from these chats trusting more in His love, acceptance, and beauty bestowed on you when you became God daughter.I hope you will look forward to L.A.B. Chats each week to be encouraged and strengthen in your faith through stories of Gods unyielding goodness and grace. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the chat!

  • The Power Of Your Pause

Go beyond the fruit of your wound to the root of your wound. (Matthew 3:10) 2. Invite Jesus into that place to heal you. (Luke 4:17) 3. Cultivate what matters - a healthy, eternal, abundant life.

  • Heal Sis! Your Soul Can't Prosper Until Your Soul Heals

    12/11/2020 Duração: 37min

    Hey Beloved, in this episode, I'm sharing my healing journey from trauma and dysfunction to healing my soul. I've learned from my own experiences how vital healing is to our souls prospering. 3 John 2 says, "Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers." Your soul can't prosper until your soul heals. You can pretend your O.K., you can be successful in different arenas but unhealed hurts will catch up with you and manifest in different areas of your life. The trauma that you ignore creates strongholds which then becomes the breeding ground for the enemy to work in your life through dysfunction, toxic relationships, soul ties, and cycles that keep you going in circles instead of moving forward. Heal, sis! Take the time you need to allow Jesus to heal your heart and your soul so your life can prosper and be what God purposed it should - beautiful, flourishing, and good. The acronym the Lord gave me for the word HEAL is healthy eternal abundant life. This is the

  • God Is A Jealous God - He Is Jealous For You

    06/11/2020 Duração: 30min

    Hey Beloved, in this episode I'm sharing God's jealous love for us and how we are to respond to Him jealousy as individual members of His body and corporately as His bride. As Christians, we've been bought with a price, the precious blood of Jesus Christ. When we put anything or anyone above or before Him, He will come after it with a vengeance until we lay it down and give our affections, loyalty, and love back to Him.  Connect with me: Resources: http://kristapettiford.com Follow me on Instagram @kristapettiford Follow me on Facebook @kristapettifordpage

  • The Purpose of Detours

    27/10/2020 Duração: 17min

    Hey Beloved, in this episode, I'm sharing the reasons and the purpose of detours and how to know if God has led you into a detour or if your detour came about by your own doing. A self-initiated detour happens when you avoid doing things God's way because you think you know a better way or a faster way. But these kinds of detours will only delay you from reaching your destiny. However, when you're in a God-ordained detour it's because He knows you're not yet ready for what's on a faster path. The detours He leads you down are to prepare you for the heavier weight of glory that you will carry when your spiritual strength has come to maturity. Whether you caused your own detour or God led you into a detour, know that delays are not denials. Don't give up! God by His grace, He will lead you back to the path that leads to His purpose and plan for you if you commit your way to Him.  Follow me on Instagram @kristapettiford Resources: http://kristapettiford.com

  • Brave Change - Letters From My Younger Self to the Woman I've Bcome

    02/10/2020 Duração: 33min

    Hey Beloved, In this episode, I'm kicking off Vlogtober with an introduction to my upcoming book, by sharing some of the letters from my younger-self to the woman I've become.  These letters were written about three years ago, at the intersection of midlife just before I turned forty-five.  At that time I was stuck in an expired season, waiting for change to come. Then one day while sitting on my couch after my mother passed away I had an encounter with my younger self.  In that moment, she became the mirror I saw my past, my present, and my future through. The voice of my younger self became the catalyst that led to taking the reins and bravely changing the course of my life.  My hope in sharing my story is that you would have some conversations with your younger self that lead to brave change.  You can watch my Vlogtober YouTube KristaPettifordChan Follow me Instagram @kristapettiford Facebook kristapettiforpage

  • Your Identity In Christ - The Power of a Good Name

    11/09/2020 Duração: 18min

    Hey Beloved, in this video I'm sharing biblical teaching on what's in a name and the power of a good name. A few things that are in a good name are honor, character, reputation, report, and authority. I am teaching how each of the things makes a good name and what happens to a person when their name is associated with the opposite of any of these good things. God is going to restore your good name so that when people think of you or hear your name they associate your name with blessings, favor, honor, character, reputation, report, and authority.

  • Four Things I Found During My Furlough Reset

    03/09/2020 Duração: 22min

    Hey Beloved, in the episode I'm sharing four things I found during my furlough reset. Because to be honest, these things were lost someplace deep inside of me.  I found freedom - from busyness and doing too much.  Freedom to get back to being myself.  Freedom to try new things even if I fail. Freedom to be honest with me. Freedom to slow down.  I found my focus. I gained clarity and learned to focus on one a few things that really matter to me. I was able to focus on being thankful and grateful instead of complaining and comparing.  I found within myself the ability to forgive others as well as myself. Through healthy introspection, I was able to let go of old resentments and blaming others and myself for things that no longer matter.  I found that finishing.  With clarity and a clean slate, I was able to finish the goals I set for myself. But I also learned to let go of people, be done with things, seasons, and be ok with saying goodbye.  Please rate, subscribe, and share the podcast.  Purchase your Witness

    Hey Beloved, in this episode, I'm sharing how to overcome the self-defeating mindsets that keep you from being who God called you to be and doing what He created you to do. Erroneous mindsets become stronghold when you continue to entertain them. They rise up at different stages in your walk with Christ to hinder you from moving forward in the direction God is calling you. You overcome self-defeating mindsets by replacing lies with truth and acting on what God says about you.  Get the Witness Bible Study Free: You Shall Be My Witnesses Witness Collection: BeautifulFeetCo.com Purchase the Your Mission Blueprint: here Connect with me: Instagram: kristapettiford Facebook: kristapettifordpage Website: kristapettiford.com YouTube: kristapettifordchan
