    Episode 15: How Do You Still Go To Church When You’re Not Sure How To Put Trust In Those People Again?

    Episode 15: How Do You Still Go To Church When You’re Not Sure How To Put Trust In Those People Again?

    This episode is for YOU. Not everyone who is listening at once. Just you. 
    You know that I go to church, and I love my church. But you also know that I’m not shy about speaking out about how the church has had many missteps over the years.
    So what do you do when you’ve been hurt by the church but you still want to be part of it? I unpack part of my journey when it came to reevaluating church, and I hope it guides you through some thoughts and questions to ask yourself as you consider re-entering the church as well. 
    This process doesn't need to feel hopeless.

    Episode 12: The Art Of Resilience - Tips For When Life Isn't Playing Nice

    Episode 12: The Art Of Resilience - Tips For When Life Isn't Playing Nice

    If it feels like you just can’t catch a break in life, this episode is for you.
    Today we’re acknowledging the fact that sometimes life just sucks. And it’s okay to admit that! But how do we not get stuck there?
    I’m sharing what I love to do in those tough seasons… praying promises, feeling the feelings, celebrating the small wins, and so much MORE!
    Resilience isn't about never falling down. And it isn't even about standing up all the way again. It's about the next best thing you can do.

    Episode 11: Overcoming Your Fear Of Sharing Your Work With The World

    Episode 11: Overcoming Your Fear Of Sharing Your Work With The World

    Have you ever created something that you’re really proud of, but when it comes time to share it with the world, you don’t feel like it’s good enough? Or maybe even that you’re not good enough? 
    Let me tell you something: no matter how many books I’ve written or talks I’ve done or videos I’ve shared, I fear self-promotion. 
    I’m fearful of what people think of the work itself, but I’m also fearful of what people think of me. 
    On this episode we’re tackling that fear.

PleiadesPlease ,

Role Model

Acountability and vulnerability create empowered masculinity. Misogyny runs so deep from our personal and cultural programming. I was glad to hear Carlos acknowledge his own. We all need to acknowledge our own outdated beliefs to change. Carlos is seriously an amazing human being. He gives me hope.

Such a joy

It’s easy to look around and get very concerned or anxious and in that time Carlos provides a needed voice. Listen learn and enjoy!

Africa love ,

Honest, real, authentic

Thankful for Carlos’ voice of reason, the way he seeks to understand, and the way he guides the Instafamilia into deeper compassion for our fellow humans. Love this space!
