Episode #33 Jean-Marie Jobs: Battling Perfectionism
On today’s episode, I have invited my friend and mentor Jean-Marie Jobs to talk about battling perfectionism.
Jean-Marie is a Master Trainer in Transformation and the founder of GAP Community and Yellow Marker. She is also the author of the book, The Art of Feeding Heros: Leading From The Inside Out.
We talk about the illusion of control and what happens when we try to “control” the future. We also look at the way perfectionism manifests itself and how it is the greatest enemy to transformation.
We discuss the distinction between excellence and perfectionism, the power of thought distancing, and how perfectionism is a mechanism to protect ourselves from disappointment.
If you struggle with perfectionism or know someone who does you will not want to miss this conversation.
A little bit more about Jean-Marie:
Jean-Marie is a master trainer in transformational work. She founded GAP Community (a nonprofit corporation) whose vision is to equip individuals and groups to further engage the call on their lives with excitement, purpose, and responsibility through training that empowers and inspires individuals to come alive and create a lasting impact in their community.

Episode #28 Juli Slattery: Sex and The Single Girl.... and Marrieds too!
Sex and the Single Girl...and Marrieds too!
I am so glad you are here. On today's episode, I talk with Juli Slattery, my friend, and Founder of Authentic Intimacy, a ministry for sexual discipleship.
We talk about Juli's book and bible study guide, "Sex and The Single Girl," and how our sexuality is a sexual battlefield!
We actually talk about a WHOLE lot more than that! Whether married, single, dating, engaged.......This episode is for you!
Tune in as we talk about what our sexuality teaches us about God, why the Christian purity narrative is limited, why what we do with our bodies matters, and the spiritual implications.
In our conversation, we also ask the questions, "Where do we get our opinions about sexuality,?" "Who owns our sexuality," "What do we do with our sexual drives and longings as a sexual woman?"
I am thrilled you are here and hope this podcast helps you gain a deeper understanding of your sexuality and how to think through sexual issues from a biblical perspective.
