    Not Everyone Understands (Solo)

    Not Everyone Understands (Solo)

    We welcome summer in with happiness and optimism at whats to come. Coming out of our series on Marriage & Relationships and looking forward, we still hear and see many who do not understand the what the struggles with mental health means and how demanding and dominating it can be on ourselves and those whom we love. Some of us are alienated by those who we considered friends and others are pushed back into stigma.
    Yet, gratitude remains our powerful ally, our undefeatable weapon that can aid in out quest to heal. Living strong and with a definitive motive to heal, we can accomplish insurmountable lows using this magical power by recognizing even the smallest things that we take for granted.

    Marriage & Religion: Does Practice Make Perfect? (Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife)

    Marriage & Religion: Does Practice Make Perfect? (Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife)

    Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife, an LDS relationship and sexuality coach with a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology, discusses how we all want security in our lives, marriage, society and often in religious beliefs. Often the “rule” becomes the most important thing which then creates tension and frays our freedom and structure. Instead of allowing honesty and courage to drive us, we resort to making others happy, which causes us to fracture.
    Dr. Jennifer discusses how individuals and couples can achieve greater satisfaction and passion in their emotional and sexual relationships, to foster self- and sexual-development, create happier intimate relationships, as well as happier individuals, despite social consequences by becoming self aware and understanding our choices.

    Marriage, Sex, Divorce & Relationship Awareness (Elisheva Liss)

    Marriage, Sex, Divorce & Relationship Awareness (Elisheva Liss)

    In this second part of this episode, (part 1 here) with our returning guest Elisheva Liss, we dive into the controversial topic of the benefits and challenges of making our partners and children aware of the fundamentals of relationships and the taboo topic of sex awareness.
    Often, religious or community obligations and accepted practices encourage young people to marry, and often without providing the tools to a happy marriage. Expectations in physical and emotional relationships are followed by disappointment, marital distress and divorce, leaving us to ponder what went wrong. Nowadays, the notion of commitment is mocked like an outdated religious construct and Elisheva suggests we take the time and patience to educate children, when age appropriate, and on an easy to understand level, that people experience love in different ways, as a much needed preparation for relationships so as to avoid misinformation and missed expectations later on in life. Listen to previous episodes with Elisheva here and here.

    Is Divorce a Failed Marriage? (Elisheva Liss)

    Is Divorce a Failed Marriage? (Elisheva Liss)

    In part 1 of this 2 part episode with our returning guest Elisheva Liss, we discuss the views shared and seen by ourselves and society regarding divorce. Elisheva is a licensed psychotherapist whose training is in marriage and family therapy, and also treats individuals and couples. You can listen to previous episodes with Elisheva here and here.
    Sometimes divorce is necessary and sometimes the topic is broached because of frustration and stress. When working it out for legitimate reasons becomes impossible, the stigma and perception may be too much to bear. Still, giving it another shot at making peace is often the best option if not only to be certain that you gave it your all and face regret later.

    How We Did It & What's Next (Solo)

    How We Did It & What's Next (Solo)

    As Hope to Recharge completes its 3rd year and 200th episode, we take a moment to recognize past achievements and accomplishments and give gratitude to those who helped reach this milestone. Although the journey of healing was treacherous and laden with the possibility of defeat, we continue to discuss and practice the essential tools that allow us to move forward each day.
    While focusing on the past of both the podcast and her own personal journey, Matana discusses the path moving forward, which is full of potential and the continuing course of Hope to recharge podcast rebranding to discuss taking action and living alive while still keeping the goal of breaking the stigma of depression and anxiety.
    We welcome our community and listeners to join us in the creative exploration of both a name, theme and logo for the rebranding as well as any thoughts or topics to be discussed.

Angie_Viv ,

This has become the closest podcast to my heart.

I love listening to Matana’s interviews and stories that are shared on the podcast. As she says “Because in mental health together it’s always better” turned out to be true. I sincerely recommend everyone to give it a chance and enjoy. I know for sure anyone will regret that.
