Monica Schmelter

Hey Friends,


I am so glad you are here.


Welcome to the Bridges with Monica Schmelter Podcast, where we bring you hope for the journey. Have you ever struggled to know what God is doing in your life? Do you desire to do His will - yet lack certainty on what that is? Have you ever questioned why certain things happened the way they did? Have the "what ifs" ever kept you up at night? Have the challenges and monotony of everyday life left you feeling drained?


If we are honest, we have all been there. I know I have. But I have found that even though the struggle is real, there is always hope.


On the Bridges Podcast, you will find hope for the journey through brave conversations and biblical teachings. On Bridges, there is no pretense - only honest conversations with authentic people who have gone through some major trials and yet found unshakeable hope.


Whether it's encouragement, hope, or faith, we need each other. We need community. We need people that get it. Join me every Thursday for brave conversations and biblical truth.


Together we will discover true hope for the journey.
