    151: Rewiring Our View of God

    At a young age, through nature and nurture, we find ourselves being wired to relate to the world in ways that aren’t always freeing. For many of us, we operate out of the extremes of co-dependance or independence. This can leave us believing things about others that isn’t true to their feelings. If we’re not put in check, this bleeds into our interactions and understandings of the One who created us.

    If you’re wanting to experience a life of goodness, truly understanding who created you is vital to that desire, making this episode a must!

    (Updated Audio)
    Social media has woven itself into humanity in a way, that since its inception, an entire generation can now say they have never known a life without it. This medium of human interaction has changed the way we relate to ourselves and the people around us, for better and for worse. In a world that seems to live in a virtually curated space the question of our existence, if we aren’t plugged into the system, haunts many of us.
    In this episode Abi and Justin get the honor of chatting with Stephanie, a Gen Z/Millennial baby raised in a world of tech and social media. Awakened to the prison she’d been born into, Stephanie bravely looked inward for answers to why she felt trapped and what she could possibly be missing in the life that existed right in front of her. This tale of self-discovery epitomizes what it is to connect to your heart and the beauty that comes from learning how to be present.
    Stephanie’s decision to disconnect and completely delete her social media life will be shocking and unbelievable to some, while liberating and hope inducing for others.
