Confessions of a Crappy Christian with Blake Guichet
Confessions of a Crappy Christian
Real-Life Talk about All the Things Christians Aren’t Sure We’re Supposed to Say—and Why They Matter to God
Why does it so often feel like Christians can’t talk about the real, hard
stuff in life? We know our lives should reflect Jesus; what He did and said,
and how He interacted with others. But if we’re being honest, there are
days when we face tough, confusing things that can make us feel, well,
very not like Jesus. As our culture moves further from truth and grace, Christians are burned- out, isolated, and unsure of where to turn for sound biblical advice that applies to their everyday struggles.
If you’ve ever felt this way or wished someone would talk about things like forgiveness, mental health, broken friendships, redirected dreams, sex, facts versus feelings, church hurt, rest, weakness, healing, and more in honest, down-to-earth terms while sticking to what Scripture has to say about them, you’ve come to the right place.
Confessions of a Crappy Christian is for you if you:
● have ever thought you’re too messed up for church
● feel exhausted and alone in your struggles
● think you need to complete a checklist before God will love you
● need a friend who cares about you too much to let you stay stuck
With honesty and vulnerability, Blake Guichet, host of the popular podcast Confessions of a Crappy Christian, helps us embrace the truth that we can’t do it all perfectly and gives us the wisdom, guidance, and hope to move from “crappy” Christian into a freer and fuller walk with Christ. In Confessions of a Crappy Christian, Blake Guichet offers an honest and transparent approach to navigating the things we aren’t sure we’re allowed to talk about as Christians and helps us discover why God cares about them and us. Invites anyone raised in the church, on the fringes of the church, or impacted by church culture to explore what the Bible really says, regardless of whether you fit into the “Christian mold.”

Addresses today’s trend of hating on the Church with no plan to do anything about it. What if there
was someone who could be honest about some of the issues within Christianity, while
simultaneously offering hope and reminding them that God is still so good?
“The world doesn’t need more perfectly presentable Christians. It needs people who love Jesus and
are willing to show up and say, ‘I can’t do anything on my own. There is nothing good in me apart from
Christ, but with Him, I am unstoppable. With Him, I am more than enough and He empowers my every
effort,’” says Guichet.
