Life is hard and the difficulties often begin in childhood. Whether it is circumstances of abuse or neglect, shame or lack of support, many people have experienced adverse childhood events that mark them for life. Em Dyson, a respected professional psychotherapist shares about her traumatic upbringing and how, over time, she experienced help and hope and healing.
Sometimes you just never know when a good conversation is gonna happen. The other day just a mundane treadmill workout at the local gym led to a deep conversation with my friend who was running on the treadmill next to me. As she started sharing her thoughts on God we stumbled on some deep thoughts about how we view God, how He speaks to us, and how relevant He is on a day to day level. I thought I had some great ideas here for my next podcast episode and asked Ines to record our conversation the next week. But as we started recording, we stumbled on even deeper ideas as Ines shared about some really traumatic experiences she had as a teenager and how she carries those burdens as something given to her by God to bear…… wow, what a conversation we end up having. I invite you to listen in – episode 20, where real life and faith collide.
