 Restoring Christianity in

love & holiness

In a time when the heart of the Lord is misrepresented, and the name of Christ misused, Alena is a clarifying voice for modern Christian living. She speaks the truth without hype or hypocrisy. She is unafraid to address real issues in religion and church. With a gentle and loving approach, she deconstructs religious legalism, lies, and false teachings to uncover the wolves in sheep’s clothing. In the Restoring Christianity Podcast, Alena extends an invitation for believers in Jesus Christ to wholeheartedly love and obey the Lord with all their heart, mind, soul, and strength and reconstruct a healthy, deep, and meaningful relationship with Jesus.

Everything is Spiritual.

Some things never change… in staying true to the initial purpose of the Miniphanies® podcast, Alena still shares ancient truths in relatable ways, inspired by everyday experiences. She is a woman full of mini-epiphanies, able to see all the ways that everything is spiritual and everything we do and say has eternal significance.

Alena’s voice will inspire you to live with intention, choose wholehearted love for the Lord over religious legalism, and restore hope that Christianity is still relevant, life-changing, and morally imperative.

Restoring Christianity (Transition Podcast April 21, 2023)

by Alena Van Dyke

 Following the heart of God…

When the Lord told me “My people perish for lack of knowledge,” and “Their hearts are far from me,” in 2022, I knew my light-hearted approach to Miniphanies® was no longer enough. I’ve sat for months with Him trying to sort out what He wants me to say and share. Today is the transition from mini-encounters with truth to truth bombs… because in our messy world, full of darkness and wolves in sheep’s clothing, I believe the Lord is asking us to seek Him and His way more than ever.

Deep down, my aim is to impart the Spirit of Revelation to you, so you will come into the knowledge of God and his true character and love for you, and bring healing to your heart so it can draw near and pursue Him wholeheartedly:

May the Lord, impart to you “the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe… far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name.” Amen. (Ephesians 1:17-21)

From the bottom of my soul, I want you to know Him. The real Him. Not the one church or society talks crap about. I want you to encounter God and meet the lover of your soul face-to-face.

He loves you and died for you.
Welcome to the Restoring Christianity podcast.

I, the Lord, desire your steadfast love and not sacrifice, your knowledge of me rather than burnt offerings.
To know him, is to love him.

Based on Hosea 6:6

Seek Him
