Your Hope-Filled Perspective Podcast
My guest, Ronne Rock, and I talk about knowing what God wants us to do with our life; how we know our purpose. We have a God-designed influence, impact, purpose, and story, and yet so often we don’t see it for what it is. We compare ourselves to others and think we are supposed to be like them. But the truth is, God created each of us with a unique set of gifts, talents and personalities.
I talk with Tonie Camacho who lost a parent early in life, lived with a mentally ill mother, was sexually abused, raped and left for dead. She turned to alcohol as a coping mechanism. After her third DWI, and time in jail, God saved her. She learned that you are never too lost for God to find you. Sobriety is a daily struggle. But Tonie learned that the storm doesn’t last forever and God is on the other side with His hand open.
In this week’s episode, Cindy Sproles and I talk about how to hold onto a Christian worldview despite what we see going on in our country and our world. Cindy shares some startling statistics about the direction of our youth and we discuss questions like…What is a Christian worldview? How do we share it? How do we live it out?
Jess Ronne and I talk about self-care for the caregiver. You may not currently be in a caregiver role but at some point in our lives many of us find ourselves there. My guest is the mother of eight children, one of whom has profound special needs, and she was the caregiver for her husband who suffered for three years with brain cancer. She shares what she has learned regarding self-care for the caregiver.
Bunny Yekzaman and I talk about how to maintain hope while waiting for the salvation of a loved one. My guest was a Christian who fell in love with and married a Muslim. She then thought it was her job to save him. She shares the one thing that can keep us from getting impatient while waiting and the key to walking in faith. We also talk about what transpired during the years she waited on her loved one to be saved and what she learned through it.
Kristin Clouse and I talk about how to find healing from abuse and trauma to walk in the fullness of who God created you to be. Shame often misappropriately dictates our identity, value, and self-worth. We can overcome shame, break the power of secrecy, and live a restored life. Healing from abuse is possible for all through Jesus.
Jami Amerine and I talk about learning to live from a place of grace. Jami shares how living from grace begins with your mindset and what you focus on because what you focus on grows. We also talked about how we can break free from religious constraints so we can really experience Jesus more fully.
We talk about how a mentor can change your life and even help you overcome loneliness. My guest, author and speaker Jayme Hull, shares how her life was changed when she accepted Christ because her church assigned a mentor to her that walked with her and pointed her to Christ. She also shares about her experiences both as a mentee and a mentor and how a mentoring relationship can positively impact your life.
Our mindset, choices, habits and disciplines all matter. Join me with Jayne Patton as we talk about daily habits and practices we can put into place so that when we get up in the morning, our day is already off to a good start. Stay through to the end as Jayne shares the one practice, above all else, that helps determine whether or not you’re going to have a good day.
It’s important to pay attention to what we are focusing on. What we focus on grows and impacts the quality of our day for better or for worse. We’ll talk about the neurological reason why this happens! And, we’ll discuss how to improve your day with some simple steps on how to focus on God instead of problems.
