CRISIE HUTCHINGS | More Than Music is a Podcast with conversations about honoring and celebrating our stories regardless of our wounds. It's about breaking shame and the obstacles and mindsets that keep us in chains, especially in faith cultures. It all starts with each of us realizing that we are valued, loved, and safe with our God and then living that love out in our lives. More Than Music Podcast is a voice against the voices of self-hatred, rejection, and worthlessness. It exists as a journey to another way to live, another way of being, and understand that we are totally, completely, eternally loved by God Himself!
With the entire world knee-deep inside this coronavirus pandemic, every household is feeling the impact from school closing to job loss, etc. It's hard when you're in the forest to see the trees or even begin to decipher what's truly happening. Today, in a random, inspiring talk, I delve into some scripture to show you that seeking God's perspective in any situation you face will instantly bring you peace beyond human understanding and you'll be able to receive God's instruction for how to walk it out to victory!I welcome your comments HERE!Connect with me below:WEBSITEINSTAGRAMFACEBOOKYOUTUBE

Do you struggle in your relationship as a son/daughter of God to relax and enjoy Him? Has religion conditioned you to work for His love and acceptance instead of just receive it by grace? If so, today’s podcast is going to help if you hunger for a place of rest, freedom and joy and learn to accept that you are already loved fully and completely by God. Today’s topic is GRACE. Just when you think you’ve understood it, your life takes a turn into striving again and again and you have to be reminded that you didn’t just receive this great salvation by faith in the grace that came by Jesus Christ, but that is how you are to walk our every single day until you see Him face to face.So consider this your reminder!I welcome your comments HERE!WEBSITEINSTAGRAMFACEBOOKYOUTUBE

I know I’m going out on a limb here with this week’s podcast, but I want to tackle it anyway because I believe there is someone listening that is in need of some assurance and encouragement and that’s my aim this week. Actually that’s my aim every week. The topic this week is, what is the greatest problem of mankind? Right now you’ve got presidential candidates vying for your vote with commercials that talk about all the problems in the nation and how they are going to solve them. Economics, social justice, poverty, childcare, education, gun control, abortion, etc.We’ve been lead to believe that these are the problems of our time, but there is a deeper problem and that’s what I’m going to address in this week's podcast. WHY DO I NEED THE GOSPEL!I welcome your comments HERE! WEBSITEINSTAGRAMFACEBOOKYOUTUBE

If you’re a leader or serve your community in any capacity, this podcast is for you. We’ll be talking about leading from the platform of your life, not your position! Today’s episode will transform your influence if you let it. I want to share something the Lord put on my heart this morning about "platform ministry" as it pertains to worship, preaching, speaking of any kind; any platform that gives you the opportunity to share a message or influence others.He said, "The greatest platform you'll ever ministry from is your life". As leaders, we can get stuck on titles and positions, but God can do more through WHO you are that what you DO!I welcome your comments HERE! WEBSITEINSTAGRAMFACEBOOKYOUTUBE

Change. We all seek it. New Year’s. Everyone grinding to be better than they were the year before. A time for resolutions, but that’s not the word this year. The word is goals.Change. Transformation. Is hard. Next to impossible in this frail strength of ours. Only possible with a power greater than us. That would be the Holy Spirit of God. And in that I want to introduce you to an additional component of change. Choice. Decision. Action.I welcome your comments HERE! WEBSITEINSTAGRAMFACEBOOKYOUTUBE

Reconciling the pain of your past and saying goodbye to sorrow.At first suggestion, this seems a joyous endeavor, but the more we think about saying goodbye to the sorrow, it feels as if we're saying goodbye to part of our identity and how we've always seen ourselves. Saying goodbye to sorrow and bad memories is like letting go of our souls and all the experiences that make us who we are.Join me today as we hash out the importance of saying goodbye to sorrow in order to embrace joy.I welcome your comments HERE!

Thank you for your patience and understanding and always for Your prayers and support!
We continue our discussion from last week about why so many of our relationships are filled with turmoil and we keep making the same mistakes over and over. Why so many of us feel like victims instead of victors….a wound that I believe exists in the understanding our worth as human beings that many of us don’t possess and we’re looking for it in all the wrong places. If you feel like you’re stuck in the same ole cycles in life, relationships, finding your purpose and on and on, I want you to join me today on the worship life as we continue to understand our value and worth in God alone!I welcome your comments HERE!

What do you do when you’ve lost your song? I’m not talking about losing your iPod or MP3 player. Nor is this a case of not having time to get your praise on before work in the morning. I am talking about losing the song of your heart. You can’t hear the music anymore. You don’t feel the hope of your future. You have suffered disappointment so great that your heart isn’t singing anymore. We’re going to be looking at, what I believe, to be one of the most important things we could ever understand in our lives as believers. What do you do when everything you thought your Christian life was supposed to be about doesn’t pan out that way? Well, how we process those things can mean the difference between victory and defeat.

It's August and that means your kids are going back to school. For some of you, they are entering Middle or High school and some of you are sending your kids off to college or your kids have let you know they are venturing out on their own or you’ve let them know it’s time to move out. For some of you, it’s your second and third child and for some, it’s your first and YOU are who I want to talk to today. When our children enter middle and high school, college and the workforce, those seasons can feel pretty daunting to parents and especially Christian parents who fear the world is going to have a negative impact on their children’s life and faith. But I’m here today to give you some insight on how you can navigate these very scary waters without imparting fear in your kids. And parents, especially us moms, we’re notorious for projecting our own fears onto our children and this is a huge NO- NO! I want to give you 5 things you can do to help you send your kids off with joy and peace that will change their life and yours and instill success in this next season of your lives. Of course, there are many ways you can do this, but I’ve found 5 really significant ways and I want to share them with you today on the WORSHIP LIFE! Photo by Naassom Azevedo on Unsplash

We are in the midst of a worship revolution in the earth. The church is singing and gathering together to encounter God is amazing ways all over the earth. We are hearing of people encountering the presence of God in ways that are bringing healing, opening blind eyes and amazing miracles all happening during worship services, arenas conferences. It’s unprecedented in our time. At the same time, worship is becoming a buzzword and place of prominence and glorification that I don’t think I’ve seen in my lifetime so much so that I believe it’s taking on a persona that we have to be careful not to worship worship or resign it to one type of experience. In this case, relegating worship to a song service or an "encounter" is a dangerous zone to live in because, then what happens to worship once the service is over or we walk out of the encounter? Encounters are necessary and God uses them, just ask Moses, but even He experienced the truth of worship that delivered an entire nation and kept him faithful to God and to His people when in the most trying of circumstances. If our worship of God does not carry us beyond a platform or arena, then we must question if we truly worship. In my study of worship over the last 20 years, I’ve found three encounters of worship from scripture that have totally revolutionized the way I walk with God and keep me grounded when the sights that I see tempt to sway me to define worship by one thing or one idea.
If you've ever minimized or felt less than about your role as a mother, this podcast is for you. I'll inspire you through scripture about the fact that what you do all day and who you are as a mom carries significance for generations to come!

Self-rejection is a taboo subject because it contains so many implications. Yet, millions of us, the majority, women, engage in this practice daily. Some to very severe degrees to the point of eating disorders, domestic violence, drug additions, self-mutilation and self-abasement of the worst kinds. In this week's podcast, I talk about some of the origins of self-rejection and what you can do to begin experiencing victory in this area of your life.

Are you open to Deception and how does it happen? I'm talking this week about the warnings Jesus gave us at the end of the age for the working of deception and I found a very curious statement He made about the things that would precede false prophets coming to deceive us and not surprising our nation is in the midst of those things right now...including the church.

It's July 4th! Happy Independence Day! In this episode, we ask "what does freedom mean to you, which moves us into a topic of religious freedom. But not national religious freedom, personal religious freedom. What are some of the religious prisons we live in and what God has to say about shepherds who do not deal with God's sheep responsibly? I'll tell you what it personally looks like to me and invite you into the world of THE WORSHIP LIFE and show you what it looks like here. I also invite you to comment and let me know what does freedom mean to you! Music courtesy of: mostfreebies.com/You're a Grand Old Flag/US Coast Guard Band
