    Episode 029: What did we learn from Simone Biles? Part 2 (A conversation about mental health)

    Episode 029: What did we learn from Simone Biles? Part 2 (A conversation about mental health)

    In this episode, we continue our conversation about mental health and what we can learn from the Simone Biles situation. In Episode 028, we focused on those who are currently facing a mental health struggle of some kind. In this episode, we focus on those who are walking with someone or know someone who is struggling. How should we respond to them?



    We share a real-time story from one of our listeners who is being real, taking risks, and doing whatever it takes for them to get healthy, and God is doing some amazing things in and through them. "My depression may not ever be taken away, but God is giving me victory in it." 



    According to Johns Hopkins University, about 26% of American adults suffer from a diagnosable mental health illness. So one out of every four people you interact with is dealing with a mental health illness of some kind. So, how should we respond to those who are battling it? 



    1. Respect how they feel

    2. Give them room to heal

    3. Return to them with your presence

    Episode 028: What can we learn from Simone Biles? (A conversation about mental health)

    On this episode, Sabrina and I take another dive into the mental health conversation as Simone Biles recently brought it to the forefront again. 



    1 in 5, or 20% of American adults suffer from a diagnosable mental illness. 



    Every day, 123 Americans die by suicide and there is one death by suicide every 12 minutes. 



    If you want to go back and listen to Sabrina share her story of walking through severe anxiety and depression, you can go back to Episode 004 and part 3 of the "I don't want to go back to normal" series. 



    We looked at three things we can learn from what Simone Biles did: 



    1. You have to be real!



    2. You have to take the risk! 



    3. You have to resolve to do whatever it takes!

    Episode 027: Revisiting The Sabbath (Part 2)

    Episode 027: Revisiting The Sabbath (Part 2)

    In this episode, we finish part 2 of our Sabbath revisited conversation by talking about what you DO on the Sabbath. So much of the Sabbath conversation is around what you don't do or shouldn't do, but the Sabbath is a day for doing as well. This is a re-release of Episode 011. 

    If you missed Part 1 of the series, you can go back and listen to that here: https://jeffmaness.com/episode-010-the-sabbath-practice-part-1/

    Jeff and Sabrina share a general framework of the Sabbath, they talk about what their Sabbath normally looks like, and they share some practical tips and tools for people in the specific stage of life with young kids.

    What is the Sabbath? The Sabbath is a command from God, rooted in the rhythm of creation, for our good. It is a reminder of who we are in God. That we are not overworked and overburdened slaves, we are blessed and beloved children of God. It is a gift. A 24-hour, weekly invitation from God to stop all of our ordinary work and activity, and truly rest. And itt reveals and refocuses our trust in God.

    The framework of the Sabbath is this: Stop, rest, delight, and worship. If you think of those as the four corners of a frame, then there is great freedom inside that frame. Stop, rest, delight, and worship. Inside that frame is great freedom!

    What do you do on the Sabbath? Whatever is restful, whatever causes you delight, and whatever is worshipful. Whatever! As long as it's not what you do for a living or to make money. As long as it's not physically, emotionally, or mentally draining. As long as it's not unethical or immoral, do it! There is so much freedom!

    Remember what Jesus said: Mark 2:27 27 The Sabbath was made to meet the needs of people, and not people to meet the requirements of the Sabbath.

    According to one expert on balancing work and life, stress is a factor in five out of six leading causes of death --- heart disease, cancer, stroke, lower respiratory disease, and accidents. An estimated 75% to 90% of all doctor visits are for stress-related issues.

    Additional Scripture:

    Isaiah 30:15 This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: “Only in returning to me and resting in me will you be saved. In quietness and confidence is your strength. But you would have none of it.

    Mark 3:4 4 “Does the law permit good deeds on the Sabbath, or is it a day for doing evil? Is this a day to save life or to destroy it?” But they wouldn’t answer him.

    Isaiah 58:13-14 “Keep the Sabbath day holy. Don’t pursue your own interests on that day, but enjoy the Sabbath and speak of it with delight as the Lord’s holy day. Honor the Sabbath in everything you do on that day, and don’t follow your own desires or talk idly. 14 Then the Lord will be your delight. I will give you great honor and satisfy you with the inheritance I promised to your ancestor Jacob. I, the Lord, have spoken!”

    Episode 025: Podcastiversary Continued

    Episode 025: Podcastiversary Continued

    In this episode, we continue the celebration of our Podcastiversary!

    We announce the winners of the $100 and $50 gift cards and we answer the remaining listener questions.



    Questions: 


    Is it harder now that some of your daughters have started dating and why?




    Do you believe Catholics know Jesus? When I tell my boyfriend (who is Catholic) about my relationship with Jesus he seems to understand and says he has one too. Is that possible growing up in a Catholic home? Is there a good way to make sure he knows the REAL Jesus?




    How do you juggle your ministry at home (your family) and starting your own church while having young kids?




    What is the most powerful blessing this podcast has placed in your life?




    Sabrina, you have talked about your truth statements but I don't believe we have heard them all do you feel comfortable sharing all of them?  How did you end up starting or even finding these statements?




    If in a marriage there has been hurt and betrayal and I've done so much work to let go and let God, but I struggle with triggers that just throw me off in an anxiety attack that I cant even think right. In your podcast you talk about overcoming these hurts in God’s Word, but I’m just stuck in the sexual part of trusting and I do good on some days and then he does something that just throws me back. How do you overcome that? I know intimacy is huge, but we have none and that's a problem. How do we fall in love again?

    Resources Mentioned:

    “Interviewing Your Daughter’s Date” by Dennis Rainey

    Scripture Used:

    James 2:19-20 19 You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror. 20 How foolish! Can’t you see that faith without good deeds is useless?

    1 John 2:3-4 3 And we can be sure that we know him if we obey his commandments. 4 If someone claims, “I know God,” but doesn’t obey God’s commandments, that person is a liar and is not living in the truth.

    1 John 3:9-10 9 Those who have been born into God’s family do not make a practice of sinning, because God’s life is in them. So they can’t keep on sinning, because they are children of God. 10 So now we can tell who are children of God and who are children of the devil. Anyone who does not live righteously and does not love other believers does not belong to God.

I love listening to every podcast! I have been so encouraged, and challenged while listening every time. I am usually exercising while listening, so I need to go back and listen to some of them and take some notes lol. Thanks for being obedient and sharing your lives!

Awesome !

We use to call Element home before the military moved us away from Cheyenne 😭 We absolutely miss Pastor Jeff and his sermons as well as the openness and sense of community from Element. This podcast ( even though I just started it ) is wonderful ! Y’all are so open, honest and raw about everything and it truly helps listeners connect ! Thank you so much for jumping on this journey and producing such great content !
