In this episode, guest Amanda Schaefer shares a powerful devotional about the woman with the alabaster jar who anointed Jesus. She shares about how we can all find ourselves in the woman's story; sinful, often invisible, well-aware of our shortcomings, longing to be seen and accepted by our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Guest Bio:

Amanda Schaefer is an author, speaker, publisher, and podcast host. No matter what vehicle she uses to share, Amanda is always telling stories. Amanda attended New York University, majoring in Dramatic Writing but was not a believer at the time. She would never have imagined using all of the things she learned there to create a Christian podcast. This endeavor, the “A Cup of Gratitude” podcast, is being listened to worldwide! It has far surpassed any of her expectations. Amanda’s goal was to provide a platform for people to share their stories and, as a result, to share God’s story. With no agenda other than finding the way to view lives through the lens of gratitude, she has chosen to keep this podcast as a ministry with no monetization of any kind. With new books on the horizon and some collective efforts around the bend, Amanda is ready for each opportunity she receives to share the gospel in every way that she can.


The closing song for this episode is "I am Yours" by Ileen Laura (@ileenlauramusic) -
