Still Becoming: Helping You Move From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be
Laura Acuña hosts the Still Becoming Podcast for women who are stuck with limiting beliefs about themselves, God, and their lives. Each episode encourages women to trade those limiting beliefs for the liberating truth from God’s Word. As a coach, Laura helps women move from where they are to where they want to be.
New episodes air every other week on Tuesday.
Welcome to Season Two!
Season Two Description
Many years ago, Laura Acuña felt God call her to speak to women of all ages and stages. Based on her own story and life lessons, Laura shares Biblical truth on becoming spiritually mature and emotionally healthy women. In the second season of the Still Becoming Podcast, episodes will cover trust, faith, living as a Christian woman in our current culture, relationships, resilience and the importance of applying God’s Word to our lives for growth and change. The goal and prayer for every episode is that listeners will leave with a deeper understanding of God’s Word, His great love for them and that it is never too late to become the healthy, whole and beautiful women He created them to be.
Episode Sixteen: Walk in It: Shining the Light Along the Way, Part Two
When most of us were growing up, society was generally favorable toward people of faith. Our beliefs and deep convictions did not draw controversy in the public square, as they do today. As a result of this culture shift, we can feel overwhelmed and disoriented as we try to walk the walk of faith in a culture that is increasingly hostile to followers of Jesus. We may be tempted to hide away with other Christians or lay low and avoid the conversation, but Jesus has commissioned us to be His light in the world.
The Five L's of Walking in It

Quotes from Episode Six:
"We overcome, not because we’re a moral majority or a righteous remnant, but because we’re blood-covered sinners who know that if the gospel can change us, it can change anyone.” - Russell Moore
“Nobody escapes being wounded. We are all wounded people, whether physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. The main question is not, 'How can we hide our wounds?' so we don't have to be embarrassed, but 'How can we put our woundedness in the service of others?' When our wounds cease to be a source of shame, and become a source of healing, we have become wounded healers.” - Henri Nouwen
