Reviews For Conversations with John & Lisa Bevere

Lisa, I’m so thankful for your example of leadership and humility as woman called to preach, teach and equip the body of Christ wherever, however, whenever He calls you to. I’m also encouraged by John’s support of your calling and his passion to equip all, including women, to lead well in the kingdom. As a young woman called to leadership, yours and John’s words have affirmed me countless times when I felt discouraged by some in the church who discount the full giftedness of women and our ability to lead. Your Myths of Singleness podcasts challenged me so much and as I ponder my roles as both a leader and an unmarried woman, I wonder if and how they will change if I marry. So here is my question for a future podcast: do you and John think “leadership roles” change once two people who were leaders in their singleness get married? In other words, do you consider yourselves to be “co-leaders” in your marriage or is John the “spiritual leader or ‘head’” of your home? Thank you :D
I just wanted to say that I love listening to this podcast and I literally talk to everyone I know about it because it's so powerful and full of wisdom. Topic suggestion? Could you guys talk about career goals and changes for college students? It's hard to figure out exactly what you want to do in life and being one of those who have struggled with really following where God wants me to go...it'd be a HUGE help if you guys talked about this :)
I tell everyone that, although I have never met Lisa and John I truly feel mentored by them listening to these podcasts and reading their books. Thank you guys for doing all you do in secret to bring us this gold! Blessings!
It’s been so encouraging to have a place that provides dialogue to so many things I think on regularly. Being a woman, single and curious—I often find myself in a weird place among Christian circles. It is super reassuring to me to be challenged in truth, but knowing as I seek to submit to that truth, I am also covered in grace. I am thankful for John and Lisa’s example, their thoughts and ability to lean into many things that are not often addressed in church culture. God has given me such profound freedom to know that the Lord’s calling in my life is not measured by anything but God’s Word and Spirit. So thankful for their incredible hearts and I just pray they continue to walk boldly in leading others towards a deep intimacy with Jesus.
I needed your words for my wilderness today! Thank you for reminding me that God has never left me. He brought my family into this season and he is faithful to bring us out! He is “growing us up” and I am excited to see what he does to show off his power and glory! Also, from one Italian to another, it feels like I’m hanging out with my family at the dinner table 😍
These episodes on being single has been such a help and blessing to me. I have been widowed for 8 years and recently an empty nester. Your conversation has made me see being single is not a problem! That God will bless me in this season and I cannot allow my life to revolve around whether I will be married again! Thank you! And thank you for sharing your love for each other with us as listeners.
Lisa and John THANK YOU! I AM DELIGHTED YOU ARE ADDRESSING SINGLE CHRISTIANS!! My name is Maureen Brown. I became a born again Christian on August 31, 2008. I’m a Conservative Christian. I believe in traditional marriage. I’m 52. I’ve been celibate since February 14, 2008. I’ve NEVER been pregnant. It is abundantly clear in my spirit, soul and body I’m to remain celibate until GOD brings my husband into my life. I’m not looking!! I’m not desperate! I KNOW when I was living a worldly life, I was EMPTY and MISERABLE!! It is a myth that I need to look for my HUSBAND!! My focus is upon GOD! HE put the desire in my heart to be married. MANY good hearted people say women after a certain AGE will not marry and or can’t get pregnant! All I say is Abraham and Sarah!! I’m no longer offended when people ask me why I’m not married and or don’t have children. I tell people I’m pursuing JESUS! I tell people JESUS HAS PURSUED my HUSBAND and HE is bringing him to ME! I’m thankful for this time ALONE WITH GOD!! Please PUT THE SINGLES SERIES ON THE ROAD!! BLESS YOU FOR NOT FORGETTING SINGLE CHRISTIANS WHO ARE LIVING CHASTE LIFE!! I AM ON FIRE FOR THE LORD!🙏🏾🔥💯❤️
I just want to say thank you. I enjoy listening to both of you and reading your books. This series on singleness is what I needed. A reminder and igniting hope. The encouragement from you two has been amazing. The questions I had about singleness and the ones others would ask me have been answered!! I thought I was disqualified but I know that’s a lie. I am qualified. I am going to enjoy this season and all that is in store for me. Thank you again
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I wish everyone, especially some of the “old school” men in ministry who say a woman can’t be in ministry without the “covering/protection” of a man. Keep tipping those religious cows over (as this Texas gal would say). Women have calls on their lives just like men do and they shouldn’t wait - they should pursue God and His plan for them full speed ahead!! You both are amazing and an absolute treasure in my life...keep speaking! 💙
I am a 29 year old single woman. I have always had a huge heart for missions and really big dreams. All of my life, I have been told that I am “too independent”, “too big of a dreamer”, and other things. I do not believe in sitting around living life on the sidelines until I meet “the one”. I strongly believe in living life to its fullest and pursuing God and what I feel called to do in life regardless of my marital status. But, I do have a deep desire and longing to be married. I am constantly told that I’m not married because I travel too much, or I’m too involved in missions or ministry. I’m told I can’t do certain things in ministry without a man. I’m told no man will be able to or want to handle a woman in ministry with a strong personality. I’m told if I would just stop or slow down that I would meet my husband. So I constantly feel torn about what is “right” or what is “balanced”. This was so incredibly helpful and inspiring to hear, especially from a married couple!
I listen to your show on my way to work daily. Thank you for your obedience and transparency in sharing your lives. It has definitely impacted my life and therefore my family’s life in a significant way. Please keep going!

This podcast is my favorite one to listen to! As a new believer that was raised in the church, it touches on all the different topics that need to be discussed, and you two have such a gentle and loving way of explaining them. Keep doing what you’re doing because you are making a difference♥️
I absolutely love the way John and Lisa break down truths and give practical life lessons. My heart has been so encouraged through these podcasts!
Thank you for the thoughtful approach and using real facts and statistics. This is a hard topic to cover but the comments expressed where from a positive perspective and show constraint and compassion. Thank you for addressing from a neutral place, I love Jesus but I am also liberal and sometimes feel shunned. This is the 3rd time I have heard about the abortion topic this week and clearly God as a message for me, lol. Anyways well done, thank you.
This podcast has been so encouraging to me! From equipping me to respond to the world in truth and love, to encouraging me that singleness isn’t a curse, this podcast always makes my day brighter! Thank you for being so welcoming and encouraging and for talking about topics that lots of people avoid!

I love the way y’all love each other and love God. The podcast about singleness and dating really affected me. I’ve been waiting for marriage to be intimate with anyone. It gives me such hope to know that there are people out there pressing towards the prize. Thank you for the encouragement! ❤️❤️ OH MY GOODNESS OH MY GOODNESS...I’m just sitting listened to the podcast and y’all say my name. Oh my goodness.... thank you for sharing my review made my day!!!!!
Hey John and Lisa loved your insights so much. Could please share on how to interpret this passage, it is honestly been a consistent struggle for me from my own thoughts and also used by others to disqualify me from being/desiring the position of an overseer. “ An overseer, then, must be above reproach, the husband of one wife... He must be one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity (but if a man does not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of the church of God?)... ‭‭1 TIMOTHY‬ ‭3:1-7‬ ‭NASB‬‬
Your podcasts on singleness and myths of singleness have been so encouraging to me. I’m 33 and single working in ministry. I do want to be married but besides the wait one of my biggest struggles has been how people treat you as a single in the church. I often feel like people want to pity me or seem to give off vibes that I’m not “there” yet because I’m single. This word really validated what I know God’s Word says about me. Thank you for showing God’s heart for me.
This podcast keeps me focused on what is really important in life. It’s so easy to let life’s distractions creep in, but John and Lisa have helped me keep my eyes on Jesus and always encourage me to press on in my faith. I am so incredibly thankful for them and their ministry! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
I’ve been in a rough season for almost a year and these podcasts have helped me so much in the last few weeks! Wish I would have discovered them sooner, but God used this in his own timing not my own!
So good, I love how you cover all topics so practically. Me & my husband love learning and are inspired by your marriage. This has helped us a lot! We love listening to this podcast together!
This podcast has played a huge role in keeping me aligned with God. Life gets busy and hectic and this podcast REMINDS me to keep my nose in my Bible and my eyes fixed on God. I listen first thing in the morning when I’m making my coffee and breakfast or if I’m running late- I listen in my car on my way to work! They’re long enough conversations to get inspired and tuned in to what God is doing, and short enough to never miss an episode! I’ve told many people about this podcast. Thank you John and Lisa!

John and Lisa’s messages are always so timely! I love their personalities and how they are real and always truthful! What a great way to start my day!

So thankful to have found this podcast! I love the fact that you’re not scared to talk about about tough issues and address them with biblical truth. I also love being able to hear both male and female perspectives for each topic. This is an amazing podcast! I highly recommend!💕
Lisa, I like how you shared the ways that free up your day, for God time! It’s much the same way for me! I want my alone time with the Master, so I put it at the beginning of my day; to read, take Communion, pray, worship and listen for words from the Father! It’s not set in stone, so the order gets thrown off course many days. I carry him into the remainder of my day, talking to him about different things that come up, to cause my heart to be anxious. God, always calms the trouble waters of my spirit, with the fresh breath of wind! Wind, that carries life-giving reassurance that he is always near and listening to my every thought and songs of thanks! I love each podcast, because it’s always something relevant, and current. Also, it’s all backed by scripture; in its context, supporting the topics at hand. I can feel the passion of Godly insight, as you guys deliver the messages! Thank you for being obedient Messengers for Christ !
Getting sooooo much out of these podcast - It’s like being able to sit at the table with both of you and just listen to your conversations and we ALL want that!
This is my all time favorite podcast (and I listen to a lot of podcasts including Joyce Meyer so that’s saying a lot). I so respect how Lisa and John cover many controversial issues with unwavering love and compassion. I also truly appreciate the truths that they bring especially when it’s unpopular. To add to that, listening to them talk to and interrupt each other is 100% entertaining. I love love love this podcast.
I have lunch with you two each week in my kitchen! I absolutely love your quick and easy to listen podcasts! And I love that you don’t water down the gospel. I’ve been a fan of you both for decades now. I would LOVE to hear about parenting teenagers! I have 2 teen girls at the moment and 2 boys following after! Love you guys! So thankful for you and your ministry! Don’t grow weary in doing good...your harvest is PLENTIFUL!!! When we get to heaven you will see just how many lives were touched and changed because of your obedience to Christ!
John & Lisa are absolutely incredible! They bring encouragement, the Word of Christ, and a heavenly perspective in everyday life topics. Plus their relationship is inspiring and they’re fun to listen to! Thank you both (and the rest of the team!) for the many encouragements and truth that has helped me grow in Christ ❤️
John and Lisa are such a breath of fresh air! I absolutely adore their openness, real and rawness. Not only as a couple but as parents and individuals. It makes me not feel so alone! I love how deep they get and I love digging deeper and not just surface level bible teachings/Christianity.
With so many podcasts to choose from I only have time for a few, and this is one of them! It’s practical, applicable and challenges me to rethink how I choose to walk out my best life with God. Thank you Beveres for speaking and living truth!
They are both so encouraging. Love their books and their vision. I am always encouraged after listening to them or reading their books. They are a must listen to
Your ministry has touched my life in a mighty way! The way you take hold of truth with in the word of God is so pure and powerful! Thank you for being bold in Christ and talking about things that will bring freedom and healing to the body of Christ!
I am a single mom and so enjoy listening to Conversations with John and Lisa Bevere! I am a mom to 2 teens I can put on a podcast at times while taxi driving!!! Thanks for being real and speaking of those things you’ve overcome and how you have!!!
Such a great way to start your day! I teach first grade and love listening to John and Lisa on my drive into school. It helps me start my day focused on Christ and with a positive attitude. I love the topics they choose to discuss and cover. I also love how each podcast is short but filled with so much truth. I strongly recommend giving their podcast a try!!

Love this podcast! You guys are on 🔥🔥🔥 keep up the great work & please keep sharing! Is there an email to send in questions? Also prayers for you guys out in Colorado with all this crazy weather! Prayers for us Nebraskans would also be greatly appreciated... this season is really taking a toll on all of us! Thanks for all you do!
This family never fails to push me to pray for a legacy within my own family. They’re so open and transparent as parents and mentors that you feel loved and challenged because they genuinely care about the people the minister to! Love the Bevere’s!!
John and Lisa carry so much wisdom from God and from their journey of life with God—this podcast is a must have in my podcast library! I always get revelations from listening to their podcast!

The singles & dating podcast was W0W!! We need this godly wisdom in our culture more than ever right now
Loving this series on singleness, dating and marriage!
I first came across John and Lisa in the midst of an impossible season. I would listen to their messages on YouTube all the time to gain strength and God’s vision for my circumstances through their heavy use of the Word. I actually began to run towards God in ways I’d never perceived He could receive me in. I experienced severe loss through divorce and endured depression but I know that listening to John and Lisa regularly kept me plugging myself back in to studying what God has to say about me instead of letting the lies of depression have a word. I listened to Lioness Arising and Good or God primarily, at the time. Since those desperate times, my life is completely new! Their words definitely placed me on a trajectory to where I am now. I’ve held four studies (Girls with Swords, Driven by Eternity, and Killing Kryptonite x2) in my home over the last year and it has been an absolute privilege to watch what their messages have also began in the hearts of these women. I have been so incredibly blessed by the Bevere’s obedience to God’s calling on their life. I absolutely love hearing their voices as they have been so influential during the worst moments of my life, turning what could have been devastation into God’s perfect story. And my story ain’t over yet.
I love listening to these podcasts whenever they come out! There is always something I learn from them and it’s so encouraging. Also, your relationship with each other inspires me. A Kingdom marriage. Thank you for being a positive aspect of my life.

The stuff the cover is very good, it’s sometimes stuff you don’t really learn about in church but read about in the Bible.
God confirmed a word he gave me at the beginning of January concerning the Elijah/Elisha dynamic. Hearing Lisa abound on that really surprised me in a special way.
Proverbs tells us to seek wisdom and boy is there a lot of wisdom in these podcasts! Every message is a blessing and extremely timely. No matter what I’m going through it seems they touch on. Thank you for both challenging me and encouraging me.
This podcast has been an anchor & a go to for my husband & I for years now. We are pastors & these words of life & encouragement have helped us in SO MANY ways. We LOVE John & Lisa Bevere & the entire messenger team! Whether you are in ministry or not these are potentially life changing conversations with a rock solid couple whose personal journey has proven their heart for people! Thanks team messenger for all you guys do!
