    024 - Designed To Heal (w/Jennie A. McLaurin)
    A doctor and a scientist reveal how to heal relational and emotional wounds by exploring the amazing restorative processes of the body.


    I had so much fun dialoguing with Jennie.  She is woman full of wisdom, faith and love.  
    I think you’ll wholeheartedly enjoy this conversation.  I feel as though I gained a sister in Christ.

    Our bodies are designed to heal. We fall off our bikes and skin our knees―and without effort on our part, the skin looks like new in a few days. But while our skinned knees easily heal, it can sometimes feel like our emotional and relational wounds are left gaping open, broken beyond repair. If our bodies instinctively know how to heal physical injuries, could they also help us understand how to restore painful emotional and relational ruptures?
    In their groundbreaking debut book, physician Jennie McLaurin and scientist Cymbeline T. Culiat write Designed to Heal: a fascinating look at how the restorative processes of the body can model patterns we may adapt to heal the acute and chronic wounds of our social bodies. Through engaging patient stories, imaginative travels through the body’s microcellular landscapes, accessible references to current research, and reflections on the image of God, Designed to Heal offers a new perspective for healing our social divisions. By learning how the body is created with mechanisms that optimize a flourishing recovery from life’s inevitable wounds, we are given a model for hopeful, faithful, and enduring healing in all other aspects of our lives. Our wounds don’t have to have the last word.  [Taken from https://www.jenniemclaurin.com/books ]

    Ed Khouri - Becoming A Face of Grace

    Ed Khouri 
    https://www.equippinghearts.com/our-vision

    John Barclay wrote a book Paul and The Gift
    The gift that one person gave another when they wanted to have an ongoing relationship with one another. The receiving of the gift was saying yes, I want to be a part of this relationship.


    Grace means...
    You are my favorite. 
    You are special.
    And, I want a relationship with you.


    noun. Charis. GK: an undeserved state of divine virtue, favor or unmerited sanctification


    b: the ongoing invitation to live in response to the Lord’s delight 
    c: the relational and practical position we have as God’s special and favorite without earning 


    verb. to dignify or raise by an act of favor; to honor.


    You only get to experience grace in relationship.


    Grace + Peace are 2 sides of the same word.




    4 Deadly Ps
    When special or favorite is missing.
    Pleasing
    Performing
    (Avoiding) Pain
    (Holding on to) Pleasure 


    It is important to get to the root of fear.




    How to tell a Face of Grace story
    Think about a time you felt special when you interacted with someone. Reflect on it until you can feel it again.


    What happened
    What emotions did you feel
    How did your body feel


    Relational Spirituality
    Book Ed referenced and I'm currently reading.

    Ryan Reger - Is Profit Good? For a family business?

    022 Ryan Reger - Is Profit Good?  For a family business?

    My Dad has been a part of a community called Proven Amazon Course with Jim Cockrum at the helm.  My dad has shared with me over the years the possibility of starting a business online.  In one email that my dad forwarded to me it was a podcast with Ryan Reger.

    I ordered Ryan's book and listened to the audio book.
    The book is short and sweet and gave me hope and inspiration that this would be possible for me and my family.  Due to my Dad's encouragement and modeling, Sungshim and I believe and want to see Zachariah & Zoe start an online business before they graduate high school.

    Part of this journey is building relationships with people we can learn from.  Ryan is a great guy who seeks to share what he has learned. 

    We had a lot of fun in this conversation.  And, we integrate how God can speak to us and lead us.  May you be blessed and inspired to take action on what God has put in your heart.

    Remember, you are loved!



    Ryan Reger

    "What if God could use me to teach people to dream again and become financially free?"

    This is what I wrote in my journal in September of 2009. Since then I’ve had the pleasure of helping thousands of people create multiple streams of income.
    I want to help YOU too!

    Let me help YOU create multiple streams of income!

    Abundance Unhindered Pt 2 :: Trauma and Spirituality with Ken Baugh

    Abundance Unhindered Pt 2 :: Trauma and Spirituality with Ken Baugh

    021 Abundance Unhindered Part 2

    As a follower of Jesus, you can experience a life of unhindered abundance right here on planet earth. How you ask? Through a process of Christ-formation. The Apostle Paul refers to this life-long process in 2 Corinthians 3:18 and spiritual leaders refer to it variously as progressive sanctification, spiritual formation, spiritual growth, or discipleship.
    Simply put, Christ-formation is the overarching goal of the Christian life. It’s the result of a partnership between us and the Holy Spirit, lived out in close relationships with others and for the benefit of others in this world. It is the practical outcome of what Jesus invited people to when he called us to be his disciples. Christ-formation is to take on the character and the quality of life Jesus referred to as abundant (Jn. 10:10): a life characterized by more love, joy, peace, and hope than we ever dreamed possible (Gal. 5:22-23).

    Unhindered Abundance Part 1 - Ken Baugh

    020 Unhindered Abundance

    Do you feel stuck in your faith, like you’re just not making progress in the Christian life?
    It’s discouraging because you’re really trying to do all the right things—you read your Bible, pray, and go to church—but nothing seems to change, at least not in any lasting way. You still find it hard to be patient while standing in line, you still lose it when someone cuts you off while driving, you still feel anxious about the future, and you have regrets about the past. The truth is, no matter how sincere you are about your faith, or how hard you try to follow Jesus, lasting change just seems like a pipedream.

    Check out Ken's website for more resources and opportunities to learn from this wonderful man and his genuine ministry.

Sunheeson ,

Thank you!

I received deep healing in my personal life through my friendship with John and Sungshim. You taught me how to allow God to synchronize with my pain memories and experience the loving presence of God. I love this podcast not only for the relational “drills” you are teaching us but also because I can tangibly feel the calming of my soul through both of your stories and your calming voices. Thank you for freely giving us what you have worked so hard for many years for. I am forever grateful for both of you!

Real Value Here!

John and Sungshim are a gem, and I’m so glad they have launched their much-anticipated podcast. I’m truly enjoying these episodes!

rvz ,

I look forward to this podcast

I really look forward to listening to this podcast by John and Sungshim. Making breath prayer a habit in my life and using it throughout my day has been very helpful to me. I’m so grateful for the transforming power I have already experienced in the short time that I have employed these practices.
