In this episode, we'll talk about what keeps us from remembering the truth and how to cut through misinformation and the lies we tell ourselves. I also sit down with Nashville-based singer-songwriter Ellie Holcomb to talk about her new children's book, Don't Forget to Remember. Then, I'll give you some questions as you process this idea of remembering what's true. Has Fear and Misinformation Taken Over? Let's Change That! When we don't know what's true, it can be hard to make the best decisions for ourselves and our families. On top of that, there are many things that can make it difficult to even discern what's true, like our own fear or the unlimited misinformation we have at our fingertips. Often, we even make up our own false narratives and tell ourselves things like, I'm always going to be a failure. I'm not smart. I'm not going to amount to anything. Y'all, it's so important to identify the things that can cloud our judgement and keep us from the truth. Because when we can identify them, we can cut through them and get back to the one source of truth, which is the truth that's found in God's Word. Why It's Important to Remember What's True with Ellie Holcomb I sit down with my friend and Nashville-based singer-songwriter Ellie Holcomb to talk about her new children's book, Don't Forget to Remember. As a mom, there are many things that you have to remind your kids to do, like wash your hands and be kind.

In this episode, we talk about: Why it's important to remember what's true How to cut through misinformation and the lies we tell ourselves How to anchor ourselves to one source of truth This word is in the Bible over 150 times. (Do you know what it is?) "Remember the Lord your God . . ." This is in Deuteronomy again and again. If God says something over and over again, it's probably because He knows we're going to forget. The truth is, the real root of what's going on when I'm scared and worried is that I've forgotten that God is good and faithful and loves me. Here are some questions to ask yourself as you process the importance of remembering the Lord your God: What are times when God has been faithful in the past? What are truths you can build your life on? Where do you need God to be faithful?
