Risk the Real, with Allen Arnold

Risk the Real, with Allen Arnold

In today’s episode, Stasi invites Allen Arnold, author, speaker, and member of the Wild at Heart team, into the studio for an insightful conversation on his new book, Risk the Real. Allen encourages listeners to step away from the artificial distractions of our modern world as well as the counterfeit narratives being offered, and instead embrace the story God is telling, the True Story and the one He created us to live authentically with Him in. The invitation is to be entwined with Jesus, living a life rooted in the real and characterized by love, creativity, strength, intimacy, and joy.







Isaiah 51:1-3 (NIV) — “Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness and who seek the Lord: Look to the rock from which you were cut and to the quarry from which you were hewn; look to Abraham, your father, and to Sarah, who gave you birth. When I called him he was only one man, and I blessed him and made him many. The Lord will surely comfort Zion and will look with compassion on all her ruins;

he will make her deserts like Eden, her wastelands like the garden of the Lord. Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and the sound of singing.


Colossians 1:15-17 (NLT) — Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see — such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him. He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together.


John 1:1-4 (NLT) — In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone.
