The Basket

with guest, Kara-Kae James


In the series premiere of That Upcycled Life, host Christine Chappell learns that being overconfident in her upcycling abilities can quickly derail a project–and her joy. Watch as Christine rebounds from her errors to pull together a creative design plan that rehabs a rusty thrift store wire basket into an elegant home decor treasure.

This episode's Upcycled Minute guest is Kara-Kae James, Executive Director of Thrive Moms. In the minute, she shares encouragement and Scripture that reminds us to remember the bigger picture when challenges and hard times threaten to steal our joy.

Have you ever felt like you weren’t qualified to be a disciple of Christ? Felt like you weren’t holy enough? Maybe you know we are called to be disciples but aren’t really sure what that means.

There are many in the world who would describe Christianity as a list of do’s and don’ts, a persona to have to upkeep, or a mask you have to wear. In reading the New Testament, which was written by people who followed Jesus, there is a much different picture painted.

Throughout this study, we are taking a look at what it means to be a disciple of Christ. What it means to be like Jesus. We will meet a number of those who followed Him, dig deep and reflect on the qualities of a disciple and see how Jesus directs the seven churches of Revelation. Finally, we’ll look at the Great Commission and our calling to further the kingdom.
