Hi! I'm Terin Ellis. I like smoking weed, and I love having meaningful conversations with other people, but most of all, I love smoking weed while having meaningful conversations with other people. My goal is to explore a variety of topics with awesome people while consuming cannabis. I want to help erase the stigma around stoners, and show people that we are functioning, successful, motivated human beings who also happen to smoke weed. Join me each week on my journey of shifting the narrati ...

When we choose to follow Jesus, it means we've got to be prepared to stretch beyond our comfort zone, go the distance, and give up everything for His sake. That journey often involves trials that leave us with some marks -- but it's through those marks that He's ultimately glorified.โดย Richard Ellis
 
God's grace covers all of our sin. But it would be a mistake to assume that when we choose to follow Him, we're a) given a license to continue sinning, or b) destined to be happy for the rest of our earthly lives! We're called to trust and obey Him, which means both living to please Him and having faith even when we don't understand the pain we're …
 
The law of sin means that we can't escape the inevitable sinful nature of our hearts. But when Jesus died and rose from the grave on our behalf, He made a way of escape that ensured we would not longer have to live under the law of sin. When we choose to live under His banner of freedom instead, He changes the very nature of our hearts and our live…
 
Scripture tells us the importance of remaining connected to Jesus, the vine, in order that we, the branches, can bear His fruit. But when we disconnect from Him we can only pretend and bear "fake fruit" for so long before what's really inside us comes out. When we allow Him to continually work in us, the fruits of the Spirit -- love, joy, patience,…
 
The best way for kids to learn is for us to model the behavior we want from them. When it comes to following Jesus, there are always other people watching how we live, especially children who seek to imitate our actions. If we want our kids to honor God with their lives, we first have to honor Him with our own -- and that includes showing obedience…
 
Time and time again throughout the Old Testament, the Israelites watched God come through for them and provide for their needs in miraculous ways. Yet time and time again, they worshipped false idols and were lured in by what the world had to offer, even though God continually proved Himself to them. We're not unlike the Israelites in that we get c…
 
Let's face it: how we allow ourselves to hear God's Word is often dependent on our circumstances at the time. But part of spiritual maturity is recognizing that we need to be the kind of soil that receives the seeds of God's Word no matter what's going on in our lives. When we allow Scripture to take root in our hearts, we bear fruit that in turn i…
 
It's one thing to worship God when things are going our way. It's another to worship Him in the midst of the storm. But when we face trials in this life, one of our greatest weapons is the ability to praise God regardless of the circumstance. When we understand that He fights on our behalf and that we don't face the enemy alone, we can rest knowing…
 
The more we cling to the sin in our lives, the more dirtied our hearts become. God is willing and ready to walk us through fiery circumstances in order to refine us and clean the dirt from our lives -- but He never expects us to walk alone. When He searches our hearts and reveals our sin, it's up to us to repent, turn away, and follow Him out of th…
 
Scripture assures us that our sins are not greater than God's merciful nature, and that as far as the east is from the west, He's removed our transgressions from us. All He asks is that we humble ourselves before Him and ask for the mercy He offers us freely. When we accept this gift we don't deserve, we're called to turn around and extend the same…
 
Our sinful nature dictates that we see ourselves as the rulers of our own lives. But when it comes to submitting ourselves to Jesus, it's time for us to get off the throne and yield the crown to the only King who's worthy of reigning over us! Instead of picking and choosing the areas of life where we're willing to relinquish control, we need to sur…
 
We have a limited amount of time on this earth -- and as Christians, we're to steward that time wisely. God's called us to run the race of life to the best of our ability. That means we need to invest all of our effort and make the most of every moment in order to grow His Kingdom before our time runs out.…
 
There is no way to live a godly life and not face persecution as a result. In some cases, God saves us from being persecuted in the first place, and in other instances, He delivers us out of the persecution we're already experiencing. Christians and non-Christians alike will all endure suffering in this life -- the difference is that we have the po…
 
The words that come out of our mouths are a direct reflection of what's in our hearts. That's why Scripture warns us numerous times about the importance of watching what we say. If we find the words we speak aren't pleasing to the Lord and don't reflect Christ's love to those around us, we need to take inventory of our own hearts and then get right…
 
God designed physical intimacy between a man and a woman to result in physical reproduction. In the same way, spiritual intimacy between us and God is meant to cause spiritual reproduction of more disciples of Christ. As we grow in relationship with the Lord, we mature in ways that allow us to seek out new Christians and help them in their own grow…
 
In the grand scheme of the evangelism "supply chain", WE are the pipeline God uses to reach other people! Everything we have is a gift from God, and sometimes He calls us to give our inventory away to someone else. When we trust Him to supply our needs, He continues to provide not only resources for us, but resources we need to serve and witness to…
 
Have you ever met someone who finds fault in everything? We don't often realize that we do the same thing when it comes to criticizing the Church. As believers, God's called us to serve and do our part as members of the Body of Christ. When our focus shifts to obeying Him and serving one another, the problems we saw in the first place tend to disap…
 
For every sin we've ever committed and every sin we'll commit in the future, Jesus has already paid the price. Too many people believe that good deeds can somehow balance out the bad things we've done. But when we stand before God one day and He looks in His ledger, the only way we'll be forgiven is if we've accepted Christ's blood sacrifice on our…
 
In this week's episode, Spencer shares his unique experience with cannabis, and his first time getting high. He and Terin catch up while covering many different topics. Listen if you want to vibe with this beautifully flowing conversation!โดย Terin Ellis
 
In the same way that employees of a company represent their company, we, as followers of Christ, represent Christ to everyone we meet. We've been commissioned to share the redeeming message of the Gospel -- but often, we're reluctant to do so. In every interaction, our job is to share what it means to follow Jesus and offer an invitation for others…
 
Point #1: God is always at work. Point #2: God wants to partner with US to accomplish His mission! But in order to be part of this awesome privilege, we have to make ourselves available to Him as "human resources", ready to respond the moment He calls us. And when we're willing to drop what we're doing to respond to Him, we become more useful tools…
 
Even Jesus, the Son of God, asked the Lord the night before He died to take His cup and let it pass from Him. The reality of living in this broken world is that there are times when we face suffering and pain so great that we wish God would just take it all away. Sometimes He does, but other times it's His plan for us to face those struggles in ord…
 
All throughout the New Testament, we read examples of the apostles being persecuted because they preached the Gospel. Yet they chose to respond by rejoicing in the Lord, and He blessed them for it. When we follow their example of finding joy even in the midst of our struggles, we're able to thank God for all that He's done and continues to do for u…
 
We all face tough times when we feel like we're under too much pressure. And in those moments, we have a tendency to reach for the "safety valve", the tool that keeps us from boiling over or exploding altogether. Our safety valve can either be a temporary pleasure that leads us to sin, or it cause us to run back to God -- and we need to make sure w…
 
When we become Christians, we don't just become children of God -- we become members of His family. God designed the Church to function in such a way that we wouldn't walk this journey alone. It's true that we can worship God any time, any place, without anybody else around, but we can't be contributing members of His family without actually gettin…
 
Scripture tells us that God has specifically placed those in authority in their positions according to His plans and His purpose. And while it might sound crazy to us that someone we don't agree with could possibly be ordained by the Lord and His will, we're called to trust that He's in control -- and to submit to that authority while still standin…
 
There are a lot of things in this world that aren't sinful in and of themselves -- they're sinful when they're abused. Alcohol itself isn't a sin, for example, but many people have used it to ruin their lives. When we use something or do something in this life, it's important to hold it up against biblical teaching and the conviction of the Holy Sp…
 
The Church is made up of human beings. That means the Church will inevitably be messy, because people are messy! Before we lose patience with other people, let's take a look in the mirror and ask ourselves how many times God's lost patience with us. When we understand that change is a process, we can extend grace to ourselves and to others knowing …
 
Scripture tells us that Jesus took on our sin so He could heal us from it. But that doesn't mean we won't still be scarred in the spiritual battles of this world. The fight against evil is a war, not a game, and we're going to face suffering in this life, but it's better that we suffer for obeying Jesus than suffer for choosing to walk in sin.…
 
Sometimes, God has to put us flat on our backs before we're looking up at Him. He allows difficulties in our lives because they cause us to run to Him and ask for His help, and He's promised to help us when we ask! When we find ourselves in difficult circumstances, our first priority should be to call out to God -- and our second priority should be…
 
Discipline, when done right, is always done out of love, not anger. Parents discipline their children in order for them to grow in obedience. In the same way, our Heavenly Father disciplines us so that we can learn what it means to walk in His ways and to live the life He intends for us to live.โดย Richard Ellis
 
It's not our job to understand why God works the way He does. It's our job to trust that He's working, even when we don't always understand it. His promises to us are true and He is faithful. And when He declares His love for us throughout Scripture, we can cling to those promises, even in the midst of trials and pain.…
 
We all know how it feels to worry. But when we're faced with a difficult circumstance, anxiety only distracts us and takes our eyes off of Jesus. When we choose to go to Him in prayer, release our worries, and rejoice in His faithfulness, we're better able to trust Him to take care of our situation!โดย Richard Ellis
 
The loss of a child brings with it immeasurable grief. But for all who put their trust in Jesus, death doesn't get the final say. Whether before birth or after, through the sin of abortion or through circumstances beyond any control, faith offers a promise of hope for every mother who follows Christ that they'll be reunited with their child in Heav…
 
There are entire reality TV shows dedicated to showcasing the houses of the rich and famous. But have you ever considered that the most expensive "crib" on the planet is the body of a believer? God gave us His Son all so that He could take up residence within us and transform us from the inside out. Our lives are messy -- but that's exactly why He …
 
God addresses the subject of motherhood in numerous places throughout Scripture, and one of the things He acknowledges is that it's a topic that can be surrounded by pain and loss. Mother's Day brings up a lot of hurt for many women and many reasons, but the Bible reminds us time and again that the Lord is powerful enough to do the impossible -- an…
 
We like to cherry-pick certain sins to point fingers at because it's easy to judge the things that don't affect us. But it's that very sin of judgment and prejudice that keeps us from being fully united as the Body of Christ, the way God calls His Church to be. Scripture is clear that we're to love each another the way Jesus does, regardless of our…
 
Do you know the difference between humble confidence, and fake humility? The latter gives us a big head, but the former is what comes from the assurance given to us as children of God. Because of what Christ has done for us, we are loved with an everlasting love by our Father -- and when we learn to see ourselves the way He sees us, we're better ab…
 
Life's not fair. How many times have we all heard that statement? But here's what we don't often realize: it's a good thing life's not fair, because if it was, we would have no hope for God's redemption. The single most unfair act in human history happened when Jesus took our sin to the cross and paid our debt for all eternity. In this life, we may…
 
Like other famous museums around the world, The Prado in Madrid can be so overwhelming that if you don't take the time to absorb it properly, you'll miss out on what it really has to offer. But did you know that the same thing is true of the Bible? It's easy to be intimidated by the enormity of Scripture, but if we never open it and read it, we'll …
 
One of the biggest causes of anemia is not eating enough iron-rich foods. When that happens, we begin to feel fatigued, weak, and overall, depleted. In the same way, we often choose to feed our spiritual hunger with things that aren't actually nourishing our souls, instead of with Jesus, the only One who can satisfy our needs. God invites us to com…
 
Image is everything in this world. The question is: Whose image are we reflecting? We all try to portray a certain identity through the way we look, the possessions we own, the careers we choose, and so much more. But God made us in His image, and the only way we can ever truly reflect who He is in us is by allowing Jesus to work in our lives and c…
 
Part of being a Christian is having the Holy Spirit dwelling in us. All around us, God provides opportunities for us to tell the world about Him. And when the Spirit prompts us to speak up and share the Gospel with other people, it's our job to be bold enough to step out of our comfort zone and obey.…
 
God isn't caught off-guard by our questions. In fact, He knows what we're going to ask -- and He has the answer -- before we even ask the question! Part of growing in spiritual maturity is learning to trust that He answers according to His perfect will and timing, not our own. When we seek God wholeheartedly, He reveals Himself to us in a multitude…
 
Proverbs 31 tells us the story of a virtuous woman who's the epitome of godliness and honor. But what so many women don't realize is that God already knows they can never become that "Proverbs 31 woman" on their own! Whether male or female, none of us can measure up to His perfect standards without the redeeming power of Jesus Christ working in us …
 
When it comes to learning how men are meant to lead their household, we have the perfect model in Christ's love for His bride, the Church. God designed the family in a specific way, with man at the head taking responsibility for his loved ones -- but that only works properly if man is first following God as the head of his life. The good news is th…
