(2.19) Am I Ever a Gainsayer? (Attachment Styles of Church Members)
Some church members have a secure, healthy attachment style; others have an unhealthy style. In the episode, I discuss how attachment style affects our experience in the Church and how we as fellow members or leaders can use this knowledge to help ourselves and others as we minister to each other and provide leadership for each other.
(Bonus) Secure Attachment, Self-Efficacy, and Hope
I discuss the following article: Secure Attachment and Self-Efficacy in Early Adolescence: The Mediating Role of Hope by Ayse Sibel Demirtuas, Education and Science, Vol 44 (2019) No 200 175-190
(2.18) Attachment Styles in the Workplace
Attachment styles not only affect our relationships with God and our family; they also affect our relationships at work. If we understand attachment styles of our co-workers, we can become more effective at collaborating with them or providing leadership for them.

(2.17) Charity Hopeth All Things
I tell a story a bishop shared with me about how he helped a gay member return to activity in the Church. The story shows how relationships mean everything, how they influence every aspect of our lives.
I love this podcast so much. Simple, concise and full of truth.
The only negative feedback I have is that I cringe every time I hear the opening where it’s say “the ONLY podcast that combines psychology with gospel….” There are actually SO many great LDS podcasts that look through the lens of psychology. Yours may be the only one specifically devoted to attachment theory but there are many others by LDS psychologists, therapists and life coaches that all talk about thoughts vs feelings and other psychology related topics.
Keep up the great work though!
I/We ARE filled with His Love
I love what Brother Osguthorpe is writing and teaching. As a testimony to the truth herein I explain that when I was a wee little one I knew that I was filled with Their Love. I was not a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints until age 36, and was raised in a tortured environment. Deepening awareness began coming to me when I was blessed with the birth of my son, 33 years ago, who was dead, then alive. The miracles he still offers any who are beginning to awaken to the Love we are continues to this very day. I almost didn’t listen to Brother O’s interview on Leading Saints until I heard about his background working with differently-abled people. Once I heard that, I received inspiration about his journey, just enough to make me curious about what he has gained all these years. Our journeys are similar. I am gratefully connected to your blessings, writings and teaching.
Question: How do I get your podcast included as an app without needing to go through Leading Saints (I love them too!)? 💛💚🧡💜
Receive all the love you can!😉
I love this podcast! It can be a little painful at times as it highlights the realities of my own failings (perceived and real) and the difficulties we are all faced with as humans. It’s the toughest spiritual work in my life, but Dr. Osguthorpe makes it easy to understand and, more importantly, hopeful! It’s a little easier to face the truth and enact change when you are supported by an optimistic outlook for your efforts, and I am grateful for the distilled wisdom and short actionable insight from an expert who believes in healing and knows the remedies. Sadly, much clinical advice serves to more deeply entrench victimhood, secure or establish self deception and ultimately lead the seeker on a journey through carnival mirrors. This is a humble departure from that way of thinking about oneself and it is filled with love—the real thing. Not for the faint hearted, but the broken hearted.
