    Teachback Tuesday-The Empty Chair and Other Firsts of Grief

    Teachback Tuesday-The Empty Chair and Other Firsts of Grief

    Welcome to Teachback Tuesday, where we play the most popular episodes from the previous season. This week’s episode, “The Empty Chair and Other Firsts of Grief,” has been downloaded by people all over the world. We are far more familiar with loved ones passing than we were prior to 2020, and it has changed the structure of many people’s lives.
    As a person very familiar with the empty chair, it is my prayer that this episode will provide help to those who are in their season of firsts. Whether you’re listening again or for the first time, you are not alone. In fact, here's a comforting verse reminding us of this truth, found in John 14:18:
    "I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you."

    Teachback Tuesday-Reducing Anxiety Through Spiritual Exercises

    Teachback Tuesday-Reducing Anxiety Through Spiritual Exercises

    Welcome to Teachback Tuesday, where we play the most popular episodes from the previous season. This week’s episode, “Reducing Anxiety Through Spiritual Exercises,” is in the top ten most downloaded episodes to date.
    My battle with anxiety began during my husband’s journey through cancer. The anxiety increased to hazardous levels within hours after my Norman’s passing, landing me in the emergency room with symptoms that mimicked a heart attack. Anxiety has been well-documented to cause both emotional and physical problems. Is there any good thing that can come from this affliction?
    Here's one good outcome: people who go through the stressful journey of anxiety often become caring, compassionate resources for others. 
    I quietly wrestled with this beast for over a year, until the Lord heard my cries and taught me some pivotal truths from His Word. These lessons became exercises for me that I still practice today. I do realize that anxiety doesn't have quick fixes, but there are some practices that we can engage to bring our emotions back out of the danger zone. This episode covers four spiritual exercises that have proven to be helpful in reducing anxiety.

Powerful, Applicable, Biblical Wisdom

I love these succinct, yet powerful, devotions. There is so much biblical wisdom, clearly expressed with just the right touch of wit and tact. Each lesson gives the listener a distinct and reachable goal to strive for. In addition, I truly believe the teacher’s life backs up every bit of instruction she gives!
