A conversation connecting two generations

    And Then There's That...A Multigenerational Conversation: Episode 1-Overwhelmed When It Is Well

    And Then There's That...A Multigenerational Conversation: Episode 1-Overwhelmed When It Is Well

    Season 2 of GENTalks: Cross-generational Conversations is now:

    And Then There's That...A Multigenerational Conversation

    Kaitlin and Katie are back for the first time since Kaitlin got married. She is now Kaitlin Chappell Rogers. This is also the first episode since they returned from their adventure to She Speaks 2017.

    Todays episode centers around being overwhelmed when we really don't have any reason to be overwhelmed, hence the title, OVERWHELMED WHEN ALL IS WELL.

    Can you relate?

    Connecting generation to generation is the heart behind this podcast. We are better together and we have so much to learn from one another.

    Episode 25: The Blank Canvas of Marriage (Part 2)

    Episode 25: The Blank Canvas of Marriage (Part 2)

    Join Kaitin and Katie as they have their last recorded conversation before Kaitin Chappell becomes Kaitlin Rogers. In a special late night addition, Kaitlin and Katie have a good old fashion girls sleepover, connecting the generations one gab session and heart share at a time.

    Check out #RoadtoRogers and Kaitlin Chappell and Caleb Roger's Wedding Website

    Katie has the special privilege of being the Live Event Artist at Kaitlin' s wedding.

    (You can check out Katie's art gallery to date here: https://psalm8110.com/art-gallery/ *although gallery is under construction and will have a new look soon:)

    What a privilege and blessing for Katie to get to capture the moment on canvas for one who is a dear friend, a sister-in-christ and who has become like a daughter.

    Laughter is good medicine and taking the time to connect on a couch, face to face, with coffee, or whatever is your jam, is priceless, powerful, and the gift of presence that keeps on giving!

    Just like Kaitlin prays that her wedding will be an encounter with God for all who attend, Katie and Kaitlin pray that this podcast invites listeners to encounter God for themselves and then sends listeners out looking to connect with the generations around them, while being plugged into the Source, the ONE connection, that is a MUST in order to fuel meaningful relationships.

    Episode 24: The Blank Canvas of Marriage (Part 1)

    Episode 24: The Blank Canvas of Marriage (Part 1)

    A blank canvas is a beautiful metaphor for marriage. Different mediums, colors, textures etc... come together building something new, one brushstroke at a time. Mess-ups happen along the way but new brushstrokes come in to make masterpieces out of those messes.



    New beginnings are always possible in painting and in marriage. Layered paint adds depth and layers of life add lessons that are priceless when learned and applied.



    The conversation took a turn and the girls camped around God's Word and Katie's latest canvas, "The Angel of Gethsemane".

    *Below is the poem God crafted in and through Katie in response to Jesus's time in the Garden of Gethsemane just before His crucifixion and resurrection.



    “The Angel of Gethsemane”

    I bet the angels sang,

    “Pick me! Pick me! Pick me!”

    But Father chose just one

    for GETHSEMANE.

    The Darling of Heaven,

    knelt down to pray,

    Sweating blood in the garden,

    what did HE say?

    Did Father choose the angel,

    whose singing was the best?

    Or did HE pass out papers,

    to see who aced a test?

    Jesus was in anguish.

    Could all of Heaven see,

    The selfless sacrifice

    in Gethsemane?

    “Father remove this cup from me,”

    Papa was all ears.

    “But Dad, I want what You want.”

    Heaven was in tears.

    Did Jesus even notice

    the angel by his knee,

    A chosen host of Heaven

    for Gethsemane?

    What if you were picked,

    to strengthen God’s Own Son?

    Did the angel feel unworthy?

    But said, “Thy will be done.”

    God’s messenger at once,

    was standing right beside,

    The Lord of Lords and King of Kings,

    the apple of God’s eye.

    The angel does his job

    and Jesus is revived.

    Only to pray harder,

    to Father He confides.

    How long did the angel stay,

    with Jesus on that day?

    What did the angel do;

    what did the angel say?

    I bet there is a library

    where saints and angels write,

    And I bet there is a book

    about that angel’s night.

    *For more about this poem and the heart behind it, check out the Our City On A Hill link in the Resources Referenced.

    The creative process is a beautiful metaphor for marriage, whether it be painting, writing, dancing, singing, etc... Stay tuned in for part 2 of "The Blank Canvas of Marriage".

    Episode 23: Wedding Ring or Boxing Ring?

    Episode 23: Wedding Ring or Boxing Ring?

    As Kaitlin enters the final stretch before her wedding, just a few weeks away, this conversation revolves around the loving "ins and outs" of THE RING.

    Which is it, THE WEDDING RING or THE BOXING RING?

    Good advice is timeless. Whether we are single, dating, engaged, newly married or in the "seasoned" category, we can all use relationship refreshers that, when applied, help us live responsive, not reactive, lives.

    Marriage 101:

    1-Stay away from using ALWAYS AND NEVER in "spicy and dicy", really any, conversations.

    2-Counting to 10 before responding is NEVER a bad thing to do:)

    3-Pressure points can be fertile ground for growth, when we hold our tongues to pray and ponder, instead of holding a grudge while we pout and prance off.

    4-The "Sandwich Conversation technique" serves everyone well: one way to approach "hard" conversations productively

    (high)1 thing you appreciate - (low)1 thing you did not appreciate - (high)1 thing you appreciated and the only thing the other person can respond with is THANK YOU!

    **Beginning and ending on a high note, makes the valley not so disastrous.

    5- Shared activities are important.

    **"2 become 1" does not mean that each gives up what makes them unique or their personal preferences; it means we compliment one another, celebrating differences, while finding common ground to grow in and on together. Relationships are ever growing. While comprise is a negative when it comes to morals, it is a necessity if we want thriving relationships.

    6-Cherish the traditions from both of your pasts as you move into a life together, while establishing new traditions unique to the ONE you have now become.

    7- COMMUNICATION COMMUNICATION COMMUNICATION - Kaitlin shares the premarital counseling curriculum her church uses: Check out Dr.Les and Leslie Parrott: http://www.lesandleslie.com
    **"Les and Leslie. A husband-and-wife team who not only share the same name, but the same passion for helping others build healthy relationships. In 1991, the Parrotts founded the Center for Relationship Development on the campus of Seattle Pacific University – a groundbreaking program dedicated to teaching the basics of good relationships."

    GENTalks Episode 22: Created to Create

    GENTalks Episode 22: Created to Create

    Kaitlin and Katie jump straight into a conversation about the creative in all of us.
    We are created to create.
    Do you believe that?

    Creating "your thing" is simply an act of obedience when you know God has asked you to write, paint, speak, sing, act, dance, etc... for "AN AUDIENCE OF ONE"!

    We are conduits for God's fingerprint in our lives. We write from and for HIM by sharing HIS message, HIS beauty, with our world.

    Fear of man is one of our biggest obstacles when it comes to pushing publish, post, tweet etc...

    When we truly believe that our message will add value to the world around us, we must push past that fear and push publish or post anyway!
    Yes, it is RISKY BUSINESS but WORTHY NONETHELESS!

    Stepping out of our comfort zone is usually where our creativity takes flight.

    Lightening round question: What are you most excited about right now?

    Episode 20: The Messy Middle

    Episode 20: The Messy Middle

    Due to technical difficulties, episode 20 is being published AFTER Episode 21, although recorded before. This is just part of taking the journey before the people! (see Deut. 10:11)

    In true GENTalks spontaneous and improv fashion, Kaitlin and Katie have a conversation about "the messy middle" or "the mean-time", the time we have here on earth between our salvation moment and when we go Home to Heaven. The "messy middle" is where we have a choice:

    Will we live a meaningful life in the "mean-time" or will we get sucked into a life "full of stuff", but lacking meaning?

    Check out the slideshow below, just one local example of a city choosing the "meaningful in the mean-time!"
    ** celebrating 2 years of "meaningful in the mean-time" at ourcityonahill.net It is set to the full song of our GENTalks into and outro music. "No More Secrets" by Deanna Wood.

LOVE IT

I love it so much. They talk about really "real" topics and make it seem like you are right there with them. I love listening to them for encouragement and to grow in faith. I think iv listened to all of the podcasts all and take something new out of every time I listen. I am so excited that they are back for season two! Definitely my favorite!

GENTalks: Cross-Generational Conversations

A refreshing conversation between a 20-something and 40-something! It is obvious how much they truly enjoy each others company and have a mutual respect and love for one
another. The generations desperately need each and have much to learn from each other! These 2 ladies show a beautiful example of how communication can be uplifting and edifying, not condescending or sarcastic, which can sadly often be the tone and posture between generations! Listen and enjoy. Then reach out and connect with someone from another generation that lives close to you.
