In this episode, we talk with NeuroCoach and Bible teacher, Alicia Michelle about how the science of the mind plays a vital role in our prayer lives. She introduces us to what brain priming is, how it differs from affirmations, and how we can use it to embrace and live out God’s truth in our lives. Alicia also gives us a glimpse into her personal prayer routine and how she’s seen God work through prayer in her own life.
Alicia Michelle is a certified NeuroCoach™, Bible teacher, speaker and host of the Vibrant Christian Living Podcast and YouTube Show. More importantly, she’s a lover of Jesus, a wife of 20 years to her best friend, and mom of four amazing kids ages 18 to 9. Alicia struggled with overthinking, negative thoughts and “being enough” for most of her adult life until God radically transformed her heart after a life-threatening medical crisis. Now through her signature courses and coaching programs she loves equipping women with practical, scientific and biblically-based mindset tools to help them overcome negative thought patterns and discover more confident, joyful lives in Christ.
