Episode 171: BDSM with Kristal Garcia
Sexuality is unique for each person. However, abuse is never a healthy part of sexuality. In this episode, I explore the connection between BDSM and abuse with Kristal Garcia. Kristal is a self-identified recovering sex and love addict. Her story can be found on a previous episode of Worth Recovery. Here we define and discuss what exactly BDSM is and the challenges of this community.

Episode 170: Motivation
Motivation.... how do you get it? how do you keep it? how do you refuel it? This is one of the most common questions I get! So in this episode I share with you my ideas on how to find and keep motivation. I spell out a three part plan and share some of my own experiences. Remember: Motivation comes to me from the inside, I am my own motivator!

What books have impacted your recovery?
I have been praying to know how to help my daughter. I had gone to the Ogden temple to receive direction. I came out and went to listen to a podcast and worth came up on my regular list. I thought ok what’s this ? Amy is the answer! I texted my daughter and said” I just found your best friend.” I contacted the people that she went to substance abuse rehab and said here is the core addiction. You need to listen to worth . Amy is so honest open and makes you feel very safe. I am sorry for ALL the hurt you have been through with your sex addiction Amy. On the other hand I can not thank you enough for the wisdom and inspiration you are! I sent my daughter a podcast episode to listen to. I pray she will choose to listen and meet her new best friend. ( I am not a pushy mom . I get truth present it and hope she chooses to partake. Bless you Amy!!!!!
I just discovered this podcast, and it has been vital to the start of my own recovery. It’s also well-spoken, and content is informative yet also healing. Thank you.
