What is God’s design for women? In a world that is constantly redefining our worth and identity, we need to know that the only one who can define us is the One who designed us. The Girl Defined Show is for Christian girls everywhere, offering a distinctly God-centered view of beauty, femininity, identity, and worth. Join Kristen and Bethany every Monday for a hope-filled, counter-cultural, and totally down-to-earth conversation about God’s radically better vision for femininity.

Ep. 106 - Enjoy this replay. Almost every young Christian woman asks this question at some point in her life. Saving sex for marriage sounds great, but is it really great? OR is it mostly super awkward and weird? Is saving sex for marriage actually worth it? Does God really care that much? In today's episode, Kristen and Bethany share their own sto…
 
Ep. 105 - Enjoy this incredible replay. Same sex attraction is a topic we've been wanting to cover for a long time. Many of you have DM'd us asking us to bring biblical truth and gospel centered hope to this conversation. We know this can be a very sensitive topic... that's why we've waited this long to bring the right person onto the show. Ellen D…
 
Ep. 104 - Christian women often feel extremely uncomfortable talking about sex. It seems there is an unspoken rule to keep everything super "hush-hush." This is ridiculous. Most women have big questions about sex and we (as Christians) should be the first to talk about this area of life. God designed sex. There should be no shame in trying to under…
 
Ep. 103 - Christian women are notorious for giving "feel good" encouragement. It might not be true. It might not be biblical. But, it makes us feel good in the moment. "You're enough." "Your turn is next!" "You'll get that baby soon." "Marriage is in your future." "Good things are coming your way." These all sound nice and great and make me feel go…
 
Feminism has been the loudest voice in culture for women. Feminism acts like ALL women want abortion, autonomy, careers, power over men and more. But is that really true for ALL women? No. We took a poll on Instagram and you all submitted things you DO NOT WANT. Things like "hustle culture" and "being a boss babe." If you value femininity, motherho…
 
Many Christian single women wonder if they have the gift of singleness. If marriage hasn't happened yet... maybe singleness is God's calling on your life. This is a legit line of thinking and one that deserves good/biblical answers. Join Kristen and Bethany as they bring clarity to this confusing conversation. NEW Personal Retreat Journal Sex, Puri…
 
Ep. 100 - Lets celebrate the 100th episode with an extra special conversation. We've covered some pretty intense topics over the lifespan of this podcast. Masturbation, feminism, birth control, drag queens, marriage, biblical womanhood and more. It's time to take a little break and have some fun. In today's episode, we're answering your assumptions…
 
Ep. 099 - The history of "the birth control pill" is something most women are not familiar with. Most women simply listen to their Dr. (without question) when they're told to get on the pill for one reason or other. Oral contraception has become the go-to for preventing pregnancy with little understanding of the potential negative health impacts to…
 
Ep. 098 - Have safe sex. Don't get pregnant. And build your career. That's the mantra women have been told from the time they were teen girls. Birth control is the go-to prescription to assist in this process of raising career minded women who put family on the back burner. This entire way of thinking needs to be tossed out and rebuilt. That's wher…
 
Ep 097 - Purity culture gets a major bad rap amongst millennials who grew up in the church. I get that. Purity culture had some major pitfalls and did a lot of damage. But, what about public health sex education? What about the sex ed class you took in school? It's time to give both purity culture and sex ed their fair evaluation. In today's episod…
 
Ep. 096 - If you are familiar with our ministry you know that, we created GirlDefined Ministries to help girls “get BACK to God’s design.” As a whole, Christian girls are really struggling to understand what God’s design is for their lives and how to practically live that out. In short, we don’t believe feminism is the answer to our womanhood quest…
 
Ep. 095 - Dating should always be done with intention and careful consideration. Dating should always work toward answering the question, "should we get married?" A successful dating relationship either moves forward toward marriage OR ends because you've discovered it's not the right thing. What questions should you ask to help you figure out if h…
 
Ep 094 - The two of us found ourselves without children for all of our thirties. That gave us plenty of time to focus on Girl Defined Ministries and all that running a non-profit entails. The past two years changed all of that though. We both became mothers and our lives suddenly looked very different. We wondered, "How can we balance both motherho…
 
Ep. 093 - This wildly popular episode is back for a much needed replay. Dr. Rosaria Butterfield was an English professor at Syracuse University, specializing in queer theory, lobbying for LGBTQ+ groups, was in a committed lesbian relationship and living the life she thought would bring her true happiness. Until the day she was confronted with the t…
 
Ep 092 - Does life ever seem unfair to you? Do you ever wonder why certain people seem to get an extra dose of suffering? In today's conversation with Nicole, we're going to hear one of those stories of overwhelming suffering. Nicole opens up and shares about the raw and vulnerable moments in her life. The moments she wasn't sure she'd actually mak…
 
Ep. 091 - What is the deal with Drag Queens? It's like they've tripled in numbers over the past few years and have taken front and center on the stage. Even parents are taking their young children to hear drag queens read children's books.... and watch them twerk. This is NOT okay. Drag Queens are an insult to women and a complete mockery of God's …
 
Ep. 090 - This wildly popular episode is back for a much needed replay. If you’re a girl or woman who has struggled with any sort of lustful sin habit, you’re not alone. Millions of Christian women (single and married) are facing similar temptations every day. And by God’s grace, many of them are finding freedom and victory over their struggles! I …
 
Ep. 089 - It's time for a VERY exciting announcement. Many of you have followed my life journey here on Girl Defined. I started out talking about singleness and how to thrive in that season of life. I then took you on my dating and engagement journey with my now husband Dav. Motherhood followed shortly after marriage and you were right there with m…
 
Ep. 088 - Modesty is one of those topics that most Christians won't touch with a 10ft pole. It's controversial. It's divisive. It's confusing. It's just hard to talk about. We get it. That's why we haven't talked about it much over the past few years either. That all changes today though. We're jumping back in the deep and going there. We're having…
 
Ep. 087 - You read that right. A man has been nominated for the NCAA Woman of the Year award. This is a huge honor and one any biological woman would be honored to receive. But... no. There isn't room for real women any more. Men have entered the scene and they are taking over. They are literally erasing women before our eyes. In today's show, we'r…
 
Ep. 086 - Lust isn't a guy problem. It's a human problem. That means that Christian women struggle with sexual sin as well. Yes, Christian women struggle with addiction to porn. You may find yourself viewing porn on a regular basis and wondering if it's okay. You may find yourself viewing porn and desperately wanting freedom. Maybe you're not strug…
 
Ep. 085 - At 19 years old, Kylie Bisutti became the number one googled person in entire world. She had just won a worldwide Victoria’s Secret Modeling competition, beating out 10,000 women to ultimately land the opportunity to walk the runway in a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. But, the glitz and glam wouldn’t last for long. Behind the scenes, Kyl…
 
Ep. 084 - The overturning of Roe v. Wade has sent shock waves throughout all of America. Shock in a good way and shock in a bad way. Many Christians are rejoicing and praising God for the lives that will be saved as a result of this decision. Many other women are grieving what they view as a loss to their basic human rights. Should we be celebratin…
 
Ep. 083 - Miss Universe is the world's largest beauty pageant organization. You would think that they (above all other organizations) would be fighting for women and trying to protect them. Nope. Not the case. They actually released a post that suggests how to have more inclusive language when speaking about a woman and her period. The post literal…
 
Ep. 082 - Rainbow flags have covered the nation and businesses have come out in full support of Pride Month. If you're a Christian woman, you're probably wondering how to love your neighbor without endorsing pride month. It's hard to know how to handle this "religious month long holiday" from a biblical foundation. The two of us are taking you on a…
 
Ep. 081 - The whole idea of freezing your eggs is becoming more appealing to women each year. Instead of being bound by her (God-designed) biological clock, women can delay having children until their 40s, without the worry of having to produce healthy eggs. The basic idea is that you freeze your strong eggs when you’re in your 20s, and then use th…
 
Ep. 080 - Get ready for some mind-blowing wisdom on marriage and motherhood. We're hearing from Susan Macias on today's episode.

You asked your most pressing questions and she gave ama…
 
Ep. 079 - We're sharing our journey of facing intense hate for our belief in Christ and unwavering stance on God's Word. It's been a CRAZY journey over the past eight years.

Ep. 077 - Have you ever wondered anything like this: “How will I know when I meet my future husband?” Or, “How will I know if he’s the one I should marry?” Or, “What signs should I look for to figure out who the one is?!” These are popular questions. Chances are, you’ve probably asked some of them yourself. Trying to “figure out the ONE” is somethi…
 
Ep. 076 - Sadly, divorce seems to be the go-to option for many couples in our modern day. That's why we are passionate about equipping couples with the wisdom and tools needed to make it the distance. What if we told you that pre-marital counseling has the ability reduce your chances of divorce by about thirty percent. It's true! Simply by working …
 
Ep. 075 - Don’t settle for a guy who isn’t interested in honoring God with his life. No matter how cute or funny he is, it’s not worth it in the end. Settling is never worth it. Don’t lower the bar for a guy who’s cute and charming, but lacks godly character and a genuine love for God.⁣ ⁣Don’t allow yourself to fall for a guy who makes you laugh, b…
 
Ep. 074 - It was a terrifying day for everyone in the country of Ukraine. The people of Ukraine woke up very early to radio stations and TV channels announcing that Russia had invaded their beloved homeland. Our sister woke up to sounds of bombing not far from her house. It was (and is) a literal nightmare. We have the honor of hearing from our sis…
 
Ep. 073 - Guy drama is a HUGE issue for many women. It can quite literally tear good friendships apart. Women who were once the best of friends end up going their separate ways... over a guy! Kristen and Bethany are no strangers to the drama of who-likes-who and the comparison that plagues many friendships. In today's episode, they are going to unp…
 
Ep. 072 - It’s been a long year. I (Bethany) never imagined I’d be sharing a story like this one. I knew miscarriages could be a possibility, but I never imagined I would have three back-to-back-to-back. My faith has been challenged in new ways. My relationship with my sweet husband has grown and deepened because of these losses. I know God is good…
 
Ep. 071 - Imagine walking into a church and standing a few feet away from your future husband WITHOUT realizing it. This is Bethany's story. In 2010 she walked into a small church having NO idea she was about to meet her future husband. It would be years before God would bring them together. During those years of her knowing David, but having no id…
 
Ep. 070 - Let's jump back to the year 2014. This was the year that Girl Defined Ministries came into existence. Talk about a step of faith. We didn't know what in the world we were doing. We just knew that we needed to TRUST God and follow His leading. Is there something in your own life that you know you need to trust God with? Maybe it's taking a…
 
Ep. 069 - The moment was perfect. Kristen was in the getaway car heading to her honeymoon. Life couldn't get any better. The emotions were joy-filled. She thought to herself, "Wow! God, you're so good." Little did she know the intense grief and heartbreak that was in her near future. If you're wondering how to handle the highs and lows of your life…
 
Ep. 068 - Hard moments in life cause many of us to ask the question, "God, are you even good?" or "How could a good God let such evil happen?" Those are legit questions. They need answers.

Ep. 067 - I thought I was going to marry this guy. How could I move on? How could I imagine a future without him? Worst of all... how could I ever date again? Breakups can be one of the most devastating moments in a woman's life. Breakups can leave one lonely, grieving and anxious about the future. I know, because I've been there many times. My bre…
 
A honeymoon is supposed to be the happiest moments in a couples life... right? That was not the case for me (Kristen). Yes, there were amazing parts! Don't get me wrong. But, there were several days that taught me some HUGE lessons about trusting God. If you desire to trust God in deeper ways, today's episode is for you. This is Week 1 of the Not P…

Ep. 065 - The unexpected loss of our baby brother was grief like we'd never experienced before. We were teen girls at the time and had never faced a tragedy this personal.

In today's episode, Bethany opens up about her own story of unfulfilled longin…
 
Ep. 062 - The pressure on women to be all, do everything, accomplish much and achieve more is IMMENSE. It's honestly overwhelming. It's crucial that we slow down and ask ourselves where this message is coming from and if it's biblical. Everything in life should be filtered through the lens of Scripture. Even messages being shouted by prominent Chri…
 
This new movie has caused quite a stir amongst Christians. Some say it's a beautiful picture of biblical redemption. Others are saying it's way too steamy. The two of us have read the book, but have not seen the movie. We explain why in todays episode. Links mentioned in todays show: Paul & Morgan's take on the movie Phylicia Masonheimer's take on …
 
Ep. 060 - Finding purpose, worth, identity, and true joy are core desires of every woman. Sadly though, many of us are finding ourselves in a place that is void of the very things we long for. This is because we’re looking to ourselves and the world for answers about our purpose, worth, and identity as women rather than God’s Word. We need to remin…
 
Ep. 059 - The time is now. Our generation desperately needs Christian women who are willing to be BRAVE for God's glory. Women like Esther from the OT who say, "I am here for such a time as this.
