Learn how to navigate the challenging journey of grief and loss. Chuck and Ashley Elliott share strategies for how to cope with loss and find hope in the midst of sorrow.
Susan Duke and I talk about recovery from grief. Susan shares how she learned to grieve forward by taking small, practical steps to face and process her grief, while refusing to allow loss to keep her from embracing life. You can grieve and embrace life simultaneously.
Secondary pain is the pain most of us have experienced without even realizing it. It comes from the words or actions of others, that makes us feel worse when we are already experiencing one of the other types of pain. It’s more common (and hurtful) than you think! Join me with my husband, Scott, for a discussion on what to do when someone hurts you emotionally.
Spiritual pain can be emotionally distressing. Sometimes our belief systems and connection to God can be disrupted, causing anguish, and leaving us feeling abandoned or punished. Join me with Aliene Thompson for When God is Silent: Healing Spiritual Pain. We’ll discuss: What is spiritual pain? How do we know we’re experiencing it? And, how can we heal?
Have you ever experienced relational pain? Those interpersonal relationships that cause you pain and heartache? Maybe even rejection or betrayal? Most of us have experienced relationships that cause us pain, but it’s not something that is talked about very much. How do we deal with it? What happens in the fallout? How do we move on? Jessica Van Roekel and I talk about relationship pain and the hope that’s available.
Most people can identify with physical pain. We’ve all been there… a broken arm, a skinned knee, a sunburn. But there are other less discussed types of pain that cause just as much and sometimes even more damage in people’s lives. Most people don’t talk about emotional pain. It’s too embarrassing. It’s too hurtful. But this is something we need to have an open conversation about if we really want to find hope, help, and healing. Join me with Dr. Mel Tavares as we talk about emotional pain. What is it and what do we do about it?
In part 2 of our discussion on what to do when chronic pain becomes too much, Laurie Davies and I cover a practical list of actionable do’s and don’ts when dealing with chronic pain. This helpful guide includes examples of the coping mechanisms we use on a daily basis. If you’re struggling with chronic pain, don’t give up! Join us for this hope-filled episode.
In this episode, Laurie Davies and I tackle the difficult topic of chronic pain. We explore the hard questions we ask in the face of suffering when chronic pain becomes too much to bear. Have you ever found yourself in a place where pain was all you could focus on or questioned God’s plan while dealing with physical suffering? If you’ve ever been in that place where you just wanted the pain to end and you didn’t know what to do, you won’t want to miss this real and raw discussion about chronic pain.
Have you ever felt burned out from your ministry or calling? Are you a faith-filled believer of Jesus, and yet your spiritual walk has felt void of excitement? Do you approach your daily quiet time as a task to check off rather than a fresh encounter with a friend? Join me with Jodie Niznik for how to meditate on the word of God and the benefits of Christian meditation.
Do you ever wonder about God’s calling on your life? What does it mean when God is calling you and what does the Bible say? In this episode, I talk with Rachelle Starr.
