Is It Real or Pseudo Joy?
This episode explores possible pseudo or imposters of joy so you can know the real thing!
Happiness and excitement are not joy. Real joy is a feeling you get when you're happy to be with someone happy to be with you. If this sounds new, please watch or listen to the first 4 episodes of this season for a foundation to today's episode.
What might be masquerading as joy in your life?
We also explore our natural personality wiring. For example, can introverts experience relational joy?
Why journalling appreciation and gratefulness should be a daily practice if you want to experience more joy.

Hopeless? Look Again!
How do you hold onto hope as Abraham, who contrary to hope, in hope believed?
This week's episode explores practical steps you can take to look again for God's hope for your life.
I invite you to spend some time asking questions of Jesus. I recommend that you either stop this podcast as we go along or return to these questions to ask later. But, please spend some time with Jesus to ask these questions to find the answers that will help you get back to hope. Be sure to listen the entire podcast for further instruction about these questions.
Part 1 Grab your journal and your pen. Quietly focus on Jesus. Give yourself permission to see Jesus in your imagination. Imagine him sitting with you. See him in your mind's eye. We're going to ask him some questions.
1. Ask Jesus for the last promise he made to you.
2. Ask Him, "What promise did he make that I chose not to believe? Write the answers down.
3. What was your initial response when He first gave you the promise?
4. What is your response now?
5. Did you believe it then?
6. Will you believe now?
7. What surprised you about what He said and about the process?
Part 2 Reconnect with Jesus as you just did.
1. Ask Jesus for a reminder of all the times and places of HIS promises made. Record the answers by writing them down.
2. Now ask for His promises fulfilled. Again, write them down in your journal.

Amazing guests with an amazing podcaster! Life changing content broken down for true daily application. I love the prayer at the end of each podcast, I receive it! Thank you for being my top fave podcast.
I had the privilege of receiving a season of coaching sessions with Claudia, and it was a true gift! She carries deep wisdom and strength, and yet she helps to draw things out with such tenderness. Claudia has a way of “pulling out the gold” through questions, and she beautifully does so in her podcast interviews as well. I have thoroughly enjoyed and learned from each one!
