    What to say to people with low self esteem w/ John Williford of Heart Support

    What to say to people with low self esteem w/ John Williford of Heart Support

    Call it confidence. Call it image. Call it self-worth. But we all have someone in our life that struggles with low self-esteem. My friend John from the mental health non-profit, Heart Support joined me to teach us how we can communicate better with those around us who are struggling to feel like they've got what it takes. He breaks down a simple framework for identifying why someone is struggling, along with tactical steps and a live role-play of the hope THEY need to hear, in order to find healing. I hope you get as much out of this convo that I did- my favorite one to date. Listen in :)

    “Stuck” VS. Waiting | A perspective shift to bring hope for the year

    “Stuck” VS. Waiting | A perspective shift to bring hope for the year

    A lot of us feel stuck right now. Almost slightly betrayed. Like things are supposed to be normal by now. I don’t know about you, but I’ve spent the better majority of my life like my 6-year-old son in the back seat of the car - “are we there yet?” It’s seldom that I actually come to peace with where I’m at in life and trust that God has me exactly where I’m supposed to be. But this morning was one of those moments. So if you’re feeling stuck in winter… stuck in isolation… or for no reason at all, I hope this brings you hope.

    Gen Z Misconceptions: How Parents Can Reach A Misunderstood Generation w/ Jaco Coetzee

    Gen Z Misconceptions: How Parents Can Reach A Misunderstood Generation w/ Jaco Coetzee

    PARENTS! If you struggle to connect with your kids, listen to this!




    Jaco and I sat down to talk about the struggles that Gen Z kids face, and what we as mentors & parents can do to help those from a very misunderstood generation lead more fulfilling lives.



    Jaco is a father, husband, Marine, and missionary who spends his time wrenching on bikes with "mobile" or at-risk youth. Through this, he's learned a great deal about how to build influence and meaningful relationships with today's youth. The best part is, it's not complicated.



    I hope you enjoy our conversation as much as I did.

    Why does God let bad things happen to good people & What does He want for us? w/ Hugh Heinrichsen

    Why does God let bad things happen to good people & What does He want for us? w/ Hugh Heinrichsen

    New LIVE Q&A Podcast series!!!
    If God doesn't owe me anything, why should I ask him for anything? If God is so loving, why do we endure so much pain and sickness? These are questions that I & most human beings have wrestled with at one point or another.

    Today, I'm asking a smarter friend for answers. His name is Hugh Heinrichsen. He has his bachelors in psychology and masters in family & marriage counseling. But more importantly, he's infinitely curious and loves helping people exactly where they are.

    I hope you enjoy this episode. And stay tuned for the next comeback story :)

    Be Here Now | How to Find Deep Joy & Build Resilience During Life’s Darkest Moments w/ Stage 3+ Cancer Thriver, Tim Skelly

    Your character isn’t tested when life is easy, but when everything falls apart. Tim’s life fell apart 5 years ago when his doctor told him he would have 2 months to live without aggressive chemotherapy. But somehow through almost losing everything, Tim, who’s also had his own bouts with depression, was able to come out swinging, with a sense of purpose, presence, and joy that he’d never before experienced. By focusing on what truly matters and cutting out everything else, every one of us can learn to become resilient. Listen in. mycomebackstory.com

    Is depression Normal? | A Conversation on The Science Behind The Invisible Disease w/ Dr. Ryan Melton

    We all have our own thoughts and opinions about depression & anxiety. But what does the science actually say about where it comes from and how we treat it? Well, today I sit down with a man who has dedicated his life’s work to preventing major mental illnesses. He’s the Assistant Dean of Clinical Mental Health Counseling at OSU and holds his Doctorate in Counseling Psychology. He’s sharp. In this candid and curious convo, I pick his brain on how it all works, and what we can do to save ourselves from

I love these episodes on the Comeback Story. I’ve really been able to understand mental health better and can really relate better and empathize more with people in my life struggling with depression. It’s been motivational and inspiring as well. Keep the episodes coming!
