Confessions, Faith, Struggles, Failures, and Hope… Oh My!

January 7, 2019 |
Announcing Candidly Christian TV

It’s candid and it’s Christian. It’s Candidly Christian TV. In John 16:33 Jesus said, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

The truth is, life is hard. We all have our struggles. Sometimes it’s a daily battle just to get through the day, but we can make it through because we know that Jesus is always with us.

Real Women, Real Life, Real Faith.

On Candidly Christian TV you’ll hear from real women who are dealing with real problems, but these women have real faith that gets them through each day.

These women aren’t going to tell you to try harder, do better, or shape-up, but they are willing to candidly share their struggles and how God’s grace has been enough for them and how it can be enough for you, too.

If you are a Christian woman who feels like she doesn’t always measure up, then this show is for you.

We want you to know that you are not alone. You belong with us, even if you feel like an impostor, we want you to know you aren’t in this alone. If Jesus has made His home in your heart, He has made a place for you in ours.

Candidly Christian TV, because it's nice to know we don't struggle alone #christianvlog

And if you don’t know Jesus yet, but you are struggling to get through life, we hope you will still join us and watch as these women share about why knowing Jesus has been a life changing experience for them. Because knowing Jesus isn’t about a list of rules, it’s about having a relationship with the One who made you and loves you more than you could ever imagine.

Candid Conversations

Candidly Christian TV will be hosted by our new Candid gal, Parker J Cole. She will be interviewing real Christian women, like Melissa Pellew, Elizabeth Chalker, Kathy Collard Miller, and more. These women open up about how they struggled (or are still struggling) with real life problems like depression, chronic illness, being an overwhelmed mom, etc. They aren’t afraid to get candid and share their struggles, because they know they don’t walk through life alone.

Meet Our Show Host

What I’m really like:

Parker is an on and off recovering Mountain Dew and marshmallow addict with a fanatical obsession with the Lord, Star Trek, K-dramas, anime, romance books, old movies, speculative fiction, and knitting who writes to fill the void the sugar left behind.

Join The Conversation

The first show was scheduled to air in February, but is currently on hold in development. We hope to be broadcasting soon. You can follow our YouTube Channel or subscribe to our newsletter for updates.

You can also join us for a preview episode where I’ll be talking to Parker about one of my own struggles. While each show is pre-recorded, you can comment here on the blog, on our YouTube channel, or on our Facebook page and someone will respond. You can also join our private Facebook group here, if you’d like to connect with a group of like minded women.

And we would love to hear from you. Real Christian women are the heartbeat behind our ministry. Everything we do here at Candidly Christian is for you. So we love hearing from you.

    I’m so excited for this! I prefer reading or listening to podcasts so I’ll probably listen to candid TV rather than watch it. This is so awesome!!!
