Revival House - Faith, Family, Marriage

What is revival and what does it look like at home with your family? Join the Barkley’s as they explore ways to display the heart of the Father at home, stay married forever, and feel alive in their relationship with Jesus all while having a good laugh!

This week is all about nostalgic memories and family traditions.  We’re talkin’ tube sock stockings, “Stille Nacht” and turd shaped bon-bons.  Seriously though, listen in on how family traditions can strengthen your family’s bond by giving you and your children a sense of identity and belonging.


Episode 34
Money issues are responsible for 22% of all divorces, making it the third leading cause.  In the Kingdom of God finances are a blessing and can be used as a powerful weapon.  Don’t let that weapon turn on you and destroy your marriage.  Don’t let the enemy pervert money into an idol in your life.  Use it to worship God.  Honor God, get on the same page with your spouse, and listen to the Holy Spirit!

Believing in Jesus is life changing but something amazing happens as well when we realize that Jesus believes in us!  Will you believe the audacious things He says about you?  Or will you believe the lies of the enemy or the opinions of others?  This week we look at the life of Jesus and follow His example of faith and obedience to the Father.    

“One of these days some simple soul will pick up the book of God, read it, and believe it. Then the rest of us will be embarrassed.” 
― Leonard Ravenhill


Big changes at Revival House as Rachel transitions out of her position at church.  Listen in as they share the process of hearing from God and giving him their ‘yes’.  Are you in a season of change or sensing God speaking something new to you?  This episode has some advice that will help you as well.

“And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.”   Hebrews 11:6


Do you believe God is kind, compassionate and delighted to be in relationship with you?  Or do you believe God is harsh, scary, unapproachable and reluctant to answer you?  Do you believe you are a sinner or a saint?  A slave or a son?  All of this matters if you want to experience a faith-filled prayer life.

“What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” A.W. Tozer


This week Jimmy and Rachel discuss parenting with the help of the Holy Spirit.  There are 9 gifts of the Spirit (1 Corinthians 12) and 9 fruits (Galatians 5) of the Spirit and they are all needed in the home environment as we raise our children.  Jimmy and Rachel share some ideas of what’s worked in their home and encourage you to invite the Holy Spirit to show up in power in your home as well.

This week was sweet but altogether uneventful at Revival House except for all the things Jimmy and Rachel can’t tell you yet.  Listen in as they talk about viewing your spouse as a partner and not a problem.  The truth is there is a real enemy at work in your marriage but it’s NOT YOUR SPOUSE!  The devil wants to destroy your marriage and he will definitely try but God gives you all you need for a victory.  Fight with the weapons He gave you.  He has planned that through your marriage healing, love and life would touch the world - that’s a pretty incredible thing.  Work on your marriage with that in mind.  

Schnitzel, Spätzle, jury duty, oh my!  Jimmy and Rachel recap their week which includes a new word being formed in the Barkley home.  Our good friend Carrie Hassell joins us for the main topic and shares her testimony as well as powerful keys she’s learned that have led to victorious living in her relationship with Jesus.  Listen and be encouraged that:

•God is good!
•If you don’t quit, you win!
•You’re the head not the tail (Deut. 28:13)
•Jesus is giving you His identity
