Coffey Anderson on Building His Country Music Career
"You got into music at an early age, you've become one of the best, most popular people in your industry. There must have been a moment of time where you were underappreciated or not yet noticed. Absolutely. Tell us about that chapter of your life. I think people really undervalue consistency. I think we're so likes driven. We're so followers driven. We're so how many views did we get? It's almost instant. And when you're building something, it takes time. When you're honing in your craft, when you're getting good at it. And I think also to take the temperature of my own business and say, if I'm not as popular as I should be, where am I losing? Where can we be better? Or is it in our sales pitch when people want to book me? Is it in the quality of music I'm putting out? Is it that the songs that I'm writing are catchy enough? What are we doing? And I think a lot of times if you're not afraid to take the triage of your business or if your career, because no matter what's wrong with you, Charlie, when you go to the hospital, you could have your leg danger falling off. That woman's gonna check your blood pressure and your timbers. You know, she's gonna do that. Can we do that with our own business? We can keep our eyes on the big prize. But can you do that with your marriage with your friendship with your business? A lot of times people are afraid to get in a triage. I wasn't afraid to get in and say where am I

Ghislaine Maxwell Gets 20 Years
"Let's talk about a creepy pedophile who absolutely got caught red handed and will now do the time. Nearly 6 months after Ghislaine Maxwell was found guilty of 5 charges, including sex trafficking in a minor. It was time to return to court and discuss some sentencing. And Ghislaine is now going to be sentenced for 20 years for her role in the Jeffrey Epstein bullshit. Last week, it was said that the 60 year old Maxwell and her legal team were filing documents saying there was unfair for delaying to serve as sentence that should have been reserved for Jeffrey Epstein. You know, had he not been found on a live in his jail cell back in 2019. They said, look, how about 51 and 63 months or less than 6 years? And I think people got tired of delaying constantly saying I was just following orders that kind of shit. Prosecutors don't like that schtick. They were looking for a sentence of between 30 and 55 years, but look, she got 20. And she put out a statement to you all the victims. I'm sorry for the pain that you experienced. It is my sincerest wish to all those in the courtroom and to all those outside this courtroom that this day brings a terrible chapter to the end to an end. And to those of you who spoke here today and those of you who did not may this day help you travel from darkness into the light. Yet she continues to protect the rapists. What did they do for her in the end? Nothing. Why didn't she talk? She look, she needs to sing before she gets suicide. She's screwed, either way, so might as well bring the predatory men down with her. I mean, there's no way she didn't keep tapes and lots of receipts stashed someplace in one of the safe houses around the world. I know I'm gonna get to that eventually. And really, I guess if there's any justice here, it's that the lane got more than the 51 month she was hoping
A highlight from Ears To Hear Are Created
"Welcome to live behind the veil and atmosphere where men and women of God speak his word to this age and bring his kingdom to this earth. Do you have ears to hear and eyes to see what God is doing in this hour? Let us join our host and the family's conversation as the Holy Spirit is unfolding. The word behind the veil hello, everyone. I'm Ron your host, and on this podcast, we'll be talking about hearing and speaking the word of God. Those who have a drive to bring God's kingdom to the earth. Must first have ears created in them to hear his word before they can speak a word from God. Let's listen in to the teaching of the Holy Spirit, and believed to have created within us ears to hear his word. What I understand of the early church is they did not expound scriptures, they believed and spoke by faith a word from God that changed people's hearts, framed in age, they had to listen to an apostolic word, had to listen to the prophet's speak, and then believe in the impartation of that and open their mouths and speak a word from God. Think about these people, what they were receiving had to come from a living epistle. Speaking the truth and love, that's the true thing of whether it's the word of the lord or not, is whether it's the truth, in love, and that authority of the lord coming through, and they could feel that. I'm sure they could tell the difference between somebody who was narrating just expose saying as opposed to somebody who was really sharing their heart with one another. Thing with Peter is so important because in X two he stood up with the 11, remember, and he started talking about Joel. He quoted from Joel too in the fact that he knew what the scripture said, but he also changed it slightly and kind of updated it for how it applied to their day. And that's the thing about what we call an apostolic word is it brings a live the scriptures for today. And that's what the true life is. I mean, you can read the word without the life without the truth in your heart, and it just becomes something you study. Just like any literature, but you have to have the life in your heart to get it imparted to you and to others while we're speaking about living epistles tonight, or speaking about the difference between what I would consider, I'm not putting down a scholar because there's nothing wrong with studying the word. And being a scholar of the word, but the spirit behind it without the relationship of Christ behind it without the relationship to the body of Christ and the members of the body, it's worthless. It's just a bunch of head knowledge and a pumping up of ego, like Paul, Paul is a perfect example, pharisee of the pharisees, but yet after he had his meeting with the lord. It changed his whole spirit. It changed his whole drive, his whole attitude, his heart, the relationship, that's where things are sparked. That's where things are alive. On that day of Pentecost, one word, save 3000 people. Today it takes 3000 words to save one. The word of God never grows old. Because it's always alive. Exactly, it should always be alive, no matter whose speaking it, they spoke a living word to one another. It was something that was alive. They shared an experience with Christ. Alan, were they better people than us? No, God, no. They had to be special. People because they were probably worse off than we are. They might have been more honest than the American person. Well, there's a truth right there. The point I'm making is we've been talking about the early church and then we're talking about today back and forth and we're talking about Christ. This is probably a controversial. I don't think Christ wanted to be put on a pedestal. Right. I think Christ wanted to be an example to people of how you can walk with God and how you can speak his word and have a relationship with the father to me without that, it's just religion, Christ is the first born of many brethren, and he is the example the pattern son that God sent to the earth to provide a way to be created into those people that God can use in the earth. I want to give a really good example and it's back in Ezekiel 37, but I want to emphasize verse four in chapter 37 again he said to me, prophesy over these bones, and say to them, O dry bones, hear the word of the lord. Now, in Amos again, it talks about there is a famine for hearing the word. What did Jesus do when he was on earth? He spoke what he heard the father speaking. That's what Ezekiel did here. That's what he lied to do. That's what he likes it did. They are not special, even Elijah himself says, you know, basically I put my pants on one leg at a time just like you do. There are people just like we are. What we really should be hearing from this is that the father is looking for people to hear the words, so we speak that word, lord, loose ears to hear. Lord loose the people in America to hear the word of the lord. Loose the people in Africa, South America, the 7 continents. My God, loose the hearing of the word. Right. And loose those who have a prophetic word from God who are like Elijah, I stand in the presence of the lord, and by my word, it's not going to rain for three and a half years, right? That's what Elijah said. Alan, your speaking something, there's a key before you can speak a word from God. You have to have ears to hear a word from God. And if you think about think about it, what Christ said every time you spoke after as he would say, those who have ears to hear, yes, let them hear a word from God. There are a lot of people out there that are preaching. A lot of people out there that are quote speaking a word from God, and it's not a word from God, God has to create ears to hear. Our living word from God, every one of us sitting here didn't start out speaking the word of God. We sat under mentors and they were speaking a word from God, and it created the capacity within us to hear a word from God, exactly. Which then enabled us to begin to speak the word from God. Lord loose people to hear. Loose the hearing of your word father loose the hearing, and the understanding loose the hearts to understand what you're saying. Even the disciples, what did you say? They didn't get it either until after the day of Pentecost. Today there are so many men and women of God out there that are in churches and they're anointed men and women of God, and their speaking and anointed word. So here's two people sitting in the congregation. One person has ears, and when that word spoken, it hits them, it changes them. They walk in it. The other person, it goes right over their head. Yep. Same place, two different people. Well, on this podcast, we found out that having ears to hear God's word is crucial if we are those who are called to speak his word and bring his kingdom to this earth. Experiencing the impartation of God's word through his family is life. As this time in his presence blessed you, then please subscribe to our podcast at live behind the veil dot com. If you would like to contact the family with questions or topics that you would like to discuss, you can email them to living epistles at live behind the veil dot com.

The Pro-Life Warriors That Need to Be Honored Today
"Now, I would be remiss if I did not mention two, now passed away legend and heroes. That are largely responsible that helped us get where we are today. And that is justice Antonin Scalia and the great Rush Limbaugh. Rush Limbaugh was a pro life warrior. He would be so happy right now. He brought so many people into the pro life movement. Rush Limbaugh, for years, was one of the most articulate and courageous. And intense pro life leaders, unapologetically so. Rush Limbaugh was pro life before the pro life movement had the funding or the infrastructure or the kind of grassroots support. And rush would never lay off of that topic. Rush was on top of it for 30 years in the excellence in broadcasting. I remember time and time again when I was a senior in high school and I would be listening on local Chicago radio, rush would be going on and on and on about some pro life story about how Planned Parenthood was doing something illegal. And another person that I do want to mention that deserves a lot of credit as well is Billy Graham. Billy Graham, he would just be so ecstatic right now. Scalia, rush, Billy Graham. Billy Graham, who spoke moral clarity into our times. Billy Graham, who was, in my opinion, the most successful evangelist in the 20th century. Who at any pastor you turn to, they have nothing bad to say about Billy Graham. Verse by verse chapter by chapter, he preached the inner sea of scripture, but he was very clear about the moral truths of our country. Or that under undergird our country. And then finally, Trump brought all of this movement to fruition. And yes, I begrudgingly and reluctantly. Have to say, Mitch McConnell deserves credit for not putting Merrick Garland on the U.S. Supreme
17 Things Jesus Never Said With Doug Giles
"I'm laughing because in chapter two of your book, you have 17 things Jesus never said, and you're quoting fake books of the Bible. And at first of all, you quote Leonard ravenhill, who is a hero with a faith. He says the church right now has more fashion than passion is more pathetic than prophetic is more superficial than Supernatural. Now he didn't say that recently, but it applies, of course. And then you've got a number of quotes, things Jesus never said. This one is from the book of Ringo, 12 36. And I say unto thee. Quarantine thyself live in dread and flee from the sick for thou art in American Christian. That's very funny. But to go right along with that, you have Jesus also didn't say this. This is from the book of specious dew 6 66. Obey civil magistrates who don't give two flying craps about the church. I mean, I don't want to forget this is the most important non scripture that Jesus didn't say. This is from the book of snafu to two 32. Hey, if there's a bad cold going around, stop meeting together, no more corporate gatherings, no more communion and singing and stuff. Exactly. From the book of snafu. Thank you brother for this non scriptural nonsense. It's very important. It's kind of funny because you and I know that like the scripture says what it says, but how we interpret it is not a small thing.
Moms for Liberty's Tina Descovich Describes Targeting by the Feds
"In an extraordinary story, many of you probably heard it was just about a month ago, moms for liberty, great organization, moms for liberty dot org was targeted by the Department of Justice by use of the Patriot Act, and we have with us the cofounder of moms for liberty, who does an amazing job Tina deskovic. I think I said that right. And welcome to the program. Thanks. You did better than most with my laugh. I grew up with a bunch of Serbs, so I'm guessing it's Serbian. It could be Croatian or something else. But Tina, welcome to the program and tell us about the what happened, mom's for liberty, targeted by our federal government and will go from there. Yeah, sure. I mean, most people are familiar by now what's gone on over the past year. We were founded January 1st of 2021 immediately our chapter started showing up at school board meetings all over the country. And by the fall of 2021, there was remarkably this letter from the national school board association that was exposed that Merrick Garland put out that he was going to use the Patriot Act to start investigating parents for domestic terrorism. And I think America was shocked. I know our organization was shocked. We felt like it was a direct attack. And we knew it was a direct attack on us and the work that we were doing and how successful we were being at changing what was going on in school districts. What's happened recently is I think it hasn't been covered nearly enough. Jim Jordan representative Jim Jordan came out and they put out a whistleblower letter that somebody from in the FBI because Merrick Garland said under oath that, oh, we're not targeting parents, you know, that that's not what's happening at all. But the FBI whistleblower came out and said, oh, absolutely. They're targeting parents, and we were named moms for everybody was named having parents that have been contacted and investigated for showing up at school board meetings.
'God, Caesar and Idols' Author Rick Boyer on Absolute Truth
"Back. I'm talking to the author of God, Caesar and idols, Rick Boyer. So Rick, let's keep going. What is it that churches are missing a book came out very recently. It really was like a nightmare to look at it. It's by Andy Stanley, very prominent pastor. And talk about getting it wrong. Talk about writing something that's potentially going to mislead millions. He talks basically makes the opposite case that you make in this book. And or that Nancy makes, or that I make, and I just think, wow, this is scary when a leading pastor is getting something this basic wrong, because we're in the lip of catastrophe in this country. If we don't bring our faith to bear, so what other issues do you go into related to this? Well, talking about truth, we devoted an entire chapter to the concept of absolute truth. And if you look at the George barna surveys, the number, the percentage of American Christians who don't believe in absolute truth, we believe that all roads lead to God and anyone who believes in some kind of a God sincerely at some point is going to be okay on the other side of the grave. Just this sort of the idea that anything goes that anything is okay, your truth is your truth and my mind can be mine. The Bible is absolutely intolerant of that idea. I mean, the Bible is insistent, make Paul talks about if Christ does not risen in our preaching his vein, your faith is in vain. You are yet in your sins. If God is wrong on even one little point, then how do we trust him on anything? And eternal security is a giant game of Russian roulette, as I say in the book. If Jesus is wrong, when he says it's one man for one woman for one lifetime because in the beginning God created it this way and the world sees us in the church as schizophrenic. When we tell them we believe in this God somewhere in this Jesus somewhere up in heaven somewhere who's going to take us to this great place called heaven when we die, but we don't take this Jesus seriously when he's here on this earth telling us in very plain terms that what God has joined together let not man put
What Does Rick Boyer Cover in New Book 'God, Caesar and Idols'?
"We have a lot of Christians who don't understand that if you do not live out your faith, maybe you have no faith, because if you have real faith, you can't help but live it out. You can't help but bring it everywhere you go. And that's why when I saw that you'd written this book, I thought, okay, so I'm not the only one who feels like we need to talk about this. I mean, obviously there are others besides you and me, but it was very heartening to see that you'd written this book God Caesar and idols. So what are some of the things we talk about you talk about in the book? Well, Nancy, pierce, I have to give a lot of credit. She wrote a book called total truth. It was one of the inspirations for this book as well. I asked her for permission to basically take chapter 12 and be a book review of her book. But she talks a lot about the cultural mandate. And I talk about what I would call the half great commission. We have a lot of churches that say, oh, we're great commission churches. Let's go tell people how to come to no Jesus and then someday how to go to C Jesus. But the other half of the great commission is teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. And piercy talks a lot about the cultural mandate or what she calls the first great commission where God tells Adam and Eve in the garden to dress the garden to keep the garden to be fruitful to multiply, to subdue the earth. And pierce says that is our first great commission as humankind before the fall was to build things to build societies to build cultures to build governments and systems of justice businesses and systems of commerce and enterprise. That was the original great commission to humanity before the fall and before people had to be
Where Have All Grown-Ups Gone? Author Douglas Murray Explains
"Back. We're talking to the author of a runaway bestseller the war on the west Douglas Murray and Douglas you were just about to say something when we went to the break. Well, you made it very important point just that Eric, which is about the grown-ups. One of the questions I've had repeatedly in recent years is where have all grown up gone. Where have they gone? When somebody who doesn't know anything and is 18 or 19 and has a complete comprehensive theory that they have been told that they've just downloaded. Where have the adults got? Where have the adults gone in America? I mean, God, you know, I love this country. I live here now, but where have the adults in America gone, the people who should stand over the culture and say, excuse me, you've got this wrong. You've got this country wrong. You've got this nation wrong. You've got our history wrong. You've got our inheritance wrong. Where are those people? All we have is this attempted cultural revolution from as it were the ground up from part of the youth up. And the adults don't even bother to correct it. I saw recently I give examples in the culture chapter in the book, which is just horrific some of the details. It was a way in which every art collection every theater tradition in the west, everything. The same remorseless thing, guilty of connection with slavery, colonialism, racism. There was a seminar recently again at the globe theater in London, which is set up to only to do one thing to have Shakespeare's plays in the settings at the site where he himself had his place performed. A couple of two bit American academics gave a decolonization of Shakespeare program recently in which one of them said the amazing revelation of this rich Shakespeare uses language of light and darkness. She of course said this was racist like everything else. And she said, this talk of Shakespeare. I mean, his language is all over the place. You know? Until today, we thought that Shakespeare was quite a whiz with
Welcome to the Final Phase, Victory Is in Our Sights!
"Welcome to the final phase. You are now in the final phase that will be the most difficult chapter, but victory is in our sights. This has been a multi generational issue of conservatives versus the left. And we are now finally entering the final phase and this will be the most difficult of all the phases. But what comes after this is us winning and them losing. So the left for many years, quietly, and methodically, infiltrated our institutions. We know this. They took over and captured our core industries and our culture shaping organizations. They were unbelievably successful as we as conservatives basically did nothing through the 70s and through the 80s and through the 90s. Conservatives thought that they were a fringe academic movement that, you know, that's kind of Bill layers and bernardine Dorne, but they're never actually going to get real power. For over 40 years, the left was able to infiltrate every single corner capture every place that was able to make decisions that mattered. First, of course, academia then media parts of corporate life, the activist base, the governments, the civil service. And we realized that this is one of the reasons why our country became less free when we were signing bad trade deals why our immigration policy was so backwards. Why we were seeing our liberties and our freedoms continually erode as we were engaging in a mass capitulation and almost every single issue to the left. Now mind you, all of this was happening and conservatives kind of shrugged it off. In the 70s, 80s and 90s and early 2000s, the left was getting away with highway robbery. And most conservatives thought it was no big deal. In fact, anyone that dared mention it was called a conspiracy theorist like Pat Buchanan in the early 1990s. I go, what do you mean the left is taking over things? The stock market is going up. Real estate prices are fine. Who cares? America's strong and always will be. In fact, on the center right, there was almost no oxygen in the room to talk about the Marxist infiltration in our schools. People kind of scoffed at it and they didn't take it seriously. But then phase two began. Slowly, all of a sudden, on the center right in America, there was a realization on how the enemy had penetrated every single vertical of society.
Mike Lee: The Incredible Timing of Releasing Book 'Saving Nine'
"You So you have this new book out saving 9 now Interesting I mean the timing was fortuitous You had written this book about this ongoing onslaught against our court system You being a very skilled lawyer yourself And conveniently right around this time we see the Dobbs roe V wade decision is about to come out And we're seeing renewed attacks against the legitimacy against the Supreme Court We haven't even had confirmation of what the ruling is yet So unfortunate but fortuitous timing for the writing of this book Exactly Correct on both fronts when I started writing saving 9 over a year ago They didn't know this leak was going to happen Nor did I know exactly when a ruling in the DOM's case might occur but I had a feeling that Rome might be on the chopping block because roe is bad law But I started predicting based on a variety of tea leaves and based on what the Democrats were talking about starting early in this administration the President Biden might try to follow what his role model Franklin D. Roosevelt tried to do by packing the court I thought we can't afford that We are still paying the consequences suffering the dire consequences from what happened last time he tried to pack the court in 1937 I explained this in great detail in chapter four of saving 9 And I'm more concerned than ever now Dan especially in the link of these leaks from the Supreme Court That's exactly what they're going to try to do We know that because they're already doing it

The Difference Between Fun and Happiness
"How does one enjoy daily life is one of the ways of forming the question with regard to happiness? And I would like to offer some answers. One of them is in my book on happiness, happiness is a serious problem. Where it's the chapter on the difference between fun and happiness. They're not the same. However, I do note that fun is important. It's not the same as happiness and the pursuit of fun is the opposite of the pursuit of happiness.

The Brains Behind Babylon Bee Bring Us 'The Post-Modern Pilgrim's Progress'
"Folks, I'm talking to the editor in chief and managing editor of the Babylon bee. Have you heard of the Babylon bee? If you haven't heard of the Babylon bee, we need to have a talk, but we can't do it now because I'm on the air. The postmodern pilgrims progress. What a brilliant idea. Kyle Mann and Joel berry, congratulations on the new book, the postmodern pilgrims progress. It's such a good idea that I wish I had thought of it. But I'm also glad that I didn't, because then I would have had to write it. And you guys already did that. Tell me, tell me more about what's in the book because it's, look, it's a little bit like shooting fish in a barrel. Like when you get a good idea like this, I can only imagine both of you thinking like, I know what I want to satirize. This is, you know, and we've been talking about some of that. And it is funny. And we need to make fun of these things. Because when you make fun of things, it helps you understand them, frankly, better. You do a lot of that in the Babylon bee. But so give me some more. Give my audience some more ideas on what is inside the postmodern pilgrims progress. Even so one early encounter that our main character goes through is really fun to write. I have a massive G.K. Chesterton fan. And I think chapter 7 or 8 he encounters Chesterton's fence. And if anybody doesn't know what Chesterton's fence is, it was this concept that Chesterton popularized that if you stumble across a fence in a field, don't tear it down until you know why it's there. And he's like, he says the traditional reformers would say, I may allow you to tear the fence down, but first tell me why it exists. And it's so like, I don't know, it's so applicable to our current day because we tear down institutions. We defund police. We tear down walls that our ancestors set up without asking why they're even
Columbine Was the Start of a Sick New Chapter in America's History
"There's an interesting part of human psychology, which is you don't quite know to the depths of hell human beings can go. Jordan Peterson talks about this a lot. I'm by no means an expert at being able to articulate it like he can. He gets a lot of heat from some people on the right for even talking about this. But I mean, this idea of school shootings is actually somewhat of a recent phenomenon. There was a school shooting back in the 30s or 40s that was just massive. It was like 60 or 70 people. I got my numbers wrong. But for decades, they're almost no school shootings. And then, of course, Columbine happened on April 20th, 1999. And I don't like saying the names of the Columbine shooters. It's just, it's just really sick. I actually know their names. I'm not going to say it because it almost I believe it further incentivize future people to do this. And Columbine is famous not because of how many people died, which was tragic and terrible and awful. But it was famous kind of because it was first. Is that it kind of totally took America by surprise in 1999. Where in beautiful Columbine, Colorado, out of nowhere you have these two people that come in and kill 13 and then, of course, both commit suicide. Now, there was a ton of controversy because the police didn't intervene and they weren't allowed to intervene because of certain laws. And that's one kind of wrinkle with what happened with here and Yuval day, which is this border patrol agent. If he was just probably following it by the book, he had no jurisdiction as a federal agent to go in there, but God bless him for doing it. It's like, who cares what the book says when children are being massacred in a classroom. The book probably says that as a armed federal border patrol agent, that that's not his jurisdiction. But he just went in as a concerned citizen with a gun and stopped the shooter, unfortunately it wasn't soon enough

Yes yes so for the existing members or the the the women who are Who have been on this platform before the refresh I i guess it'll be pretty clear to them what's changed. What's the same. Oh yes sort of much more clearer. They can definitely see the vision and my new. We're very diverse. Were melting pot. We have women On our platform in ten different countries outside the us. Yes and we have a strong presence for asian middle eastern women. American black white hispanic. You know just every flavor in every color of the coloring box and that was our vision that was our vision and our age group. Is you know from young to Middle age and older you know and so we're bridging that gap and what was interesting with this. New platform is to hear someone says uninviting my mother and or and then another person said oh. I've invited my dogs. You know that tells me that the contents sneaks to everyone in every age yes yes multigenerational. Wow man that is. That is extraordinary. It it really is and and what you mentioned about the About i had it. Then i lost. It was appointed. I was trying to make. But i love how much clarity you mentioned about the platform for the existing members. They'll know how to navigate through it and You know there's a lot more programs delivered in a different modality and that type of thing. Yes yes yes. They thought is based on topics.

And so i want them to be free to blossom and exciting to see these young women come in and they're just just dedicating and helping to roll themselves as a volunteer but getting those skill sets but also as a person and that has been so profound for me because when i started this organization i it became an obligation to make sure that i make an impact on women's lives absolutely extraordinary very enlightening especially to me very enlightening lady chap Because we we talk a lot about empowerment positive mindset You know just being transparent and having the strength to be vulnerable in certain situations You know we talk about having having a positive outlook on life at all these things right but not only are you touching on those areas to uplift women but you're also touching on methods approaches strategies professional development round.

You know there's a lotta awesome women organization at empower women and you know how the seminars in iraq. But i want them to come in and lead different than the way they did come in feel like whatever their time that they invest in our next chapter were adding just as much value to them as they are adding to us and and you know the interesting thing is i set up this journey because i wanted to empower and inspire women to only realize that these same women have inspired in power me and also has helped me to draw in areas and It's it's been a great journey in really really has a for sure i mean.

We'll have ups and downs and our circumstances but you have each other in a tribal community to lift each other up for winston ones down. That's to me. That's the beauty of of having the extraordinary community that that you do have lady. Mrs lists really interesting. It took me by surprise when i started her next chapter. I've movie was focusing on the baby boomers because that's why yeah and As we started building this platform what was interesting was that we were having. So many millennials anybody younger generation. You don't gravitating towards us. Not emma's kind of odd like when i was agent when he when he realized that these women were missing would. The baby boomers had in their lives the grandmothers on the porsche. Talking about life teaching history life is so busy now is so they're craving for that mentor shop and so her next chapter is really operated in moving forward because of that generation. And we're holding on the baby. Boomers nacho there kotel. We are where we are mom because of generation x. millennials and generation beneath them right in. We're just adding that baby boomer generation just adding feeding into their spirit but they're the one is taking it on a roll and expanding it to the growth that is going to see i see so You know while you mentioned this the millennials and the after that You know they're they're. They're looking for something that they didn't have You know like the baby baby boomers had the grandma so forth so in and while that fulfills them among other things Would it would be safe to say that This age group in this demographic maybe also brings Fresh perspectives and viewpoints. And mindsets to nas definitely. Okay i remember hearing a woman here is shop telling her daughter. Just let me be dead right. You know he rescue me current. That's what this group of ladies do for us Next chapter you know. I remember also one of someone telling me when i first launched her next chapter that how it looks today is gonna look totally different two years from now and that was in two thousand sixteen and she mentioned to me she said so just embrace it and allow it to a ball away. It's supposed to be and that's exactly What it's doing and so much Since we went virtual and we we have been building a virtual platform since two thousand and nineteen before the pandemic right right on our radar. But i realized that the we have like ten different divisions in organization everything is operated burchell. But what her next chapter has allowed is for young women to come on this platform and play in our back. Play in our our background. Are our place place. Box ceremonies stamp bots a in bear coming into a platform. They're they're learning how to manage their learning how to run the vision learning how to project manage creative and share boys and take his experience because they are volunteering and i tell the volunteers all the time. I don't want you to just put on your resume. I volunteer for her next chapter. You should be saying. I got from aid because me remitting because what you did how you did it your creativity.

But when things feel as if they are falling apart from beneath you which are mental and emotional reactions stop and think could this be a test on shifting of your course for healing. I've mount that to be very impactful it resonated with me it was very profound and And i have a feeling in my heart of hearts and please correct me if i'm wrong. I have a feeling in my heart of hearts that this was actual lived words based off your journey and your and several several chapters and You know and a lot of women are people have asked me. Why did you First of all naming the the organization her nets chapter. I spell it with the double acts. And i've met people ask me well. Why did you sell next with the double acts. And i. Because there's so many women there that i can relate to the feel like they are being x. on society because age Because of gender. Because you know their nationality So that bad as why her next chapter and just encouraging when to put a comma fast continue their story they don't have to stop and pause exists raking continued the journey. And that's really tough. It seemed like this last year. It's been tougher but it can be tough. And that's why it's so important to be connected to a community before i started her next chapter. I didn't have a trial. i didn't have community. i didn't have. I didn't have a strong group. You don't get me wrong. I do have some very close friends. Sure but on a different level That can travel journey with me. Or i can try a journey down and we have a common interest common situation or common desire lives..

"The blue zones areas with a disproportionately high number of healthy so-called centenarians backs this up all but five of the two hundred and sixty three centenarians the author. Dan buehner interviewed for the book. Belong to some kind of faith based community research also shows that attending faith based services four times per month had four to fourteen years of life expectancy in all blue zones centenarians part of some religious community. I can't summit up any better than buehner. Who concluded that people who pay attention to their spiritual side have lower rates of cardiovascular disease depression stress and suicide and their immune systems seemed to work better to a certain extent adherence to a religion allows them to relinquish the stresses of everyday life to a higher power in the bible which is of course a perfect example of a highly valued source of absolute truth for many faith based communities. I peter five seven recommends us to cast all our cares upon him being able to cast my own carriers in trust in and talk to a higher power buttressed by the support and encouragement of others. Who were also believers is certainly something that has given me personally a great deal of hope confidence clarity peace and direction life when it comes to your own health. I'm convinced the religious practice that includes disciplines such as fasting. Meditation prayer silent. Solitude worship and study is magnitude more meaningful impactful than a salad of herbs and wild plants glass of organic wine or a megadose of sunshine and fresh air. Of course this entire faith. Healing and hope trilogy is all supported by the underlying science behind the biology of belief and the impact of emotional states on your flesh and bones that i taught you about in chapter fourteen to discover this hope. Read about the hero's journey in chapter nine of this book fit soul book fissile book dot com and begin to understand the vast significance of being able to without any sense of shame or judgment cast every last care and both the lightest and heaviest burdens upon him. John piper describes this flavor of hope as a vibrant living unshakable blood bought hope that is the defining motion of the christian heart and gives rise to joyful fearlessness. In the face of human trouble and threats. So when you discover a hope that's epic in your life. And it's planted like a flourishing fragrant flower within the garden of your heart. You'll find every other form of self quantification pales in terms of being able to predict your health and lifespan. Nothing is more important. Furthermore if you've already discovered that hope and used to share a defense for the hope that is within you. I recommend you read the book always ready directions for defending the faith by greg bouncing. That book is a good compilation of several of his published works on christian apologetic s- including his apologetic syllabus articles on practical apologetic problems. Like the problem we've old problem of miracles etc. It will allow you to better share your hope with others who have yet to discover the intense meaning in life derived from a strong sense of hope. And help you to fulfil the words of first peter. Three fifteen in the bible which says always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have how about you. Do you have hope in your life. If so how do you feed the fire of the hope that is within you are able to share an answer to others about the source of the hope that is within you in the same way that you can consider hope to be your fuel for your spiritual journey.

"At your sleep apps feedback chose you a giant thumbs up with congratulatory goldstar for sleep and tells you to go crush the day so you venture forth pushed through tiredness and experience a somewhat unproductive and unpleasant day as you fight through fatigue because well your computer told you. We're just fine. What conundrum was any regular reader of some of my more edgy scientific fitness or recovery. Content knows i'm not against self quantification wearables and informed feedback from the impressive variety of devices that can easily track body temp heart rate heart rate variability respiratory rate sleep cycles and host of other metrics metrics often with laser like precision formula as to the general status of your physiological state yet constant plugged in reliance upon these devices as the sole source of your decision making about training recovery business food and more can ironically distance you from the ability to be able to pay attention to and develop an intimate relationship with the intelligence god built into your body and the signals that sending you. So how do you know how do you know if that mental resistance to go exercise just you being lazy or a true sign that you shouldn't train or should for something more restorative like yoga or the sauna. How do you know if that dread of placing heavy barbell on your shoulders for back squat is because your body doesn't need the chaos damage or overtraining that might create on an anatomical or physiological level. Or whether your body is instead just resisting discomfort and the orderliness strength and stability that hard squad they might create for you. How do you know if you're craving carbs due to an addiction to sugar or the need for a quick does hit or to drown feelings of bitterness and remorse. Or whether you're actually asking you for a much-needed refill of liver or muscle glycogen stores. How do you know if you truly need more sleep or if you're just avoiding tough workday you're depressed or you're procrastinating in bed. How do you know if you desire that. Glass of wine as a pallet cleanser and an enjoyable part of a well balanced meal. Or if you want that hit on a vape pen for a whiff of the flavor and relaxing properties of the cannabis plant. Or if you're numbing pain and escaping via some substance well while self quantification metrics can certainly help in these situations. They can't identify feelings like pain. Depression laziness anger. That well at least can also remove you from being able to truly listen to your body and understanding a deeper more intuitive ancestor. Way what your body is really trying to tell you this in and of itself. It's quite ironic. Because this fascinating and complex interweb of flesh basha blood and bones is what is your spirit and soul and enables you to live your very purpose yet. Like a cyclist. Who can't change a flat tire or an airline pilot who doesn't know how to read the cockpit instrumentation. You often have no clue about your state of health. Because you simply haven't come to know your body and listen to your body without the help technology. So how do you listen to your body. Embrace stillness embrace silence. When you wake spend a few extra moments in bed breathing wiggling your toes wiggling your fingers and tuning into your body before workout or a stressful event. Take a deep breath in your nose out through slightly pursed lips before you grab a handful of almonds or a cup of coffee or chunk of dark chocolate pause and take a few more deep. Breaths are truly hungry or thirsty. Are you simply drowning. Yourself with a temporary clerk distraction throughout the day. Continue this habit. Step away from the computer. Turn off the podcasts audiobooks music. And all the background noise and just ask your body. How are you then. Be still for several seconds and listened to the subtle internal intuitive queues of your heart rate your muscle tension your gut fullness and your breath rate in other words be as fully present as you can at all times. Read or listen to chapter two of this book. If you don't know how to do that ultimately you'll become better at picking up on the subtle clues your body sending you throughout the day and more intimately familiar with your body which is all so easy to lose a deep intimate connection with then use. Your fancy self qualification devices and wearables but that modern science to them don't completely outsource everything to a computer. Learn to step away from the chaos.

"Man Can inform you. Thus we grow and so can you though you but one man with this book in your hand, we believe and hope it contains all you will need to begin. We know what you're thinking. You're saying to yourself, I'm jittery alone. I couldn't do that. But you can. You forget that you have just now tapped source of power much greater than yourself to duplicate with such backing. What we have accomplished is only a matter of willingness patients and labor. We know of a member who was living in a large community. He had lived there. But a few weeks when he found that the place probably contained more alcoholics per square mile than any city in the country. This was only a few days ago at this writing nineteen, thirty nine. The authorities were much concerned. He got in touch with a prominent psychiatrist who has undertaken certain responsibilities for the mental health of the community. The. Doctor proved to be able and exceedingly anxious to adopt any workable method of handling the situation. So he inquired what did our friend have on the ball? Our friend proceeded to tell him. And with such good effect that the doctor agreed to attest among his patients and certain other alcoholics from a clinic which he attends. Arrangements were also made with the chief psychiatrist of large public hospital to select still others from the stream of misery which flows through that institution. So our fellow worker will soon have friends Galore. Some of them may sink and perhaps never get up. But if our experiences at criterion more than half of those approach, we'll become fellows of alcoholics anonymous. When a few men in this city have found themselves and have discovered the joy of helping others to face life. Again, there will be no stopping until everyone in that town has had his opportunity to recover if he can and will. Still you may say, but I will not have the benefit of contact with you who write this book. We cannot be sure God will determine that. So you must remember that you're real reliance is always upon him. He will show you how to create the fellowship you crave. Our Book is meant to be suggestive only. We realize, we know only a little God will constantly disclose more to you and to us. Ask Him in your morning meditation, what you can do each day for the man who is still sick. The answers will come if your own house is in order, but obviously, you cannot transmit something you haven't got. See to it that your relationship with him is right and great events will come to pass for you and countless others. This is the great fact for us. Abandon yourself to God as you understand, God admit your faults to him and your fellows clear away the wreckage of your past give freely of what you find and join us. We shall be with you in the fellowship of the spirit and you will surely meet some of us as you trudge the road of happy destiny. May, God, bless you and keep you until then. This concludes the reading of Chapter Eleven, a vision for you published in the second edition of Alcoholics. Anonymous I'm grateful you listened.

Dissensions are very dangerous especially to your husband often you must carry the burden of avoiding them or keeping them under control. Never forget that resentment is a deadly hazard to an alcoholic. We do not mean that you have to agree with your husband. Wherever there is an honest difference of opinion just be careful not to disagree in a resentful or critical spirit? Did you and your husband will find that. You can dispose of serious problems easier than you can the trivial ones next time. You and he have a heated discussion. No matter what the subject it should be the privilege of either to smile and say this is getting serious. I'm sorry I got disturbed. Let's talk about it later. If your husband is trying to live on a spiritual basis he will also be doing everything in his power to avoid disagreement agreement or contention. Your husband knows he owes you more than sobriety. He wants to make good yet. You must not expect too much. His ways of thinking and doing the habit of years patience tolerance understanding and love are the watchwords. Show him these things in in yourself and they will be reflected back to you from him. Live and let live is the rule if you both show a willingness to remedy your own defects six there will be little need to criticize each other. We women carry with us a picture of the ideal man the sort of chap we would like our husbands wants to be it is the most natural thing in the world wants his liquor. Problem is solved to feel that he will now measure up to that cherished vision. The chances are he will not for like yourself. He is just beginning his development. be patient another feeling we are very likely to entertain is one of resentment that love and loyalty could not cure our husbands of alcoholism we do not like the thought that the contents of a book or the Work Work of another alcoholic has accomplished in a few weeks the end for which we struggled for years at such moments we forget that alcoholism is an the illness over which we could not possibly have had any power. Your husband will be the first to say it was your devotion care which brought him to the point where he could have a spiritual experience without you. He would have gone to pieces long ago when resentful thoughts come try to pause and count blessings after all. Your family is reunited. Alcohol is no longer a problem. And you and your husband are working together toward an undreamed undreamed of future still another difficulty is that you may become jealous of the attention. He goes on other people. Especially alcoholics. There you have been starving for his companionship yet. He spends long hours helping other men and their families. You feel he should now be yours. The fact does that he should work with other people to maintain his own sobriety. Sometimes he will be so interested that he becomes really neglectful. Your House is filled with strangers. Here's you may not like some of them. He gets stirred up about their troubles. But not at all about yours. It will do little good. If you point that out and urge more attention for for yourself we find a real mistake to dampen his enthusiasm for alcoholic work. You should join in his efforts as much as you possibly can. We suggest you direct some of your thought to the wives of his new alchoholic friends. They need the council in love of a woman who has gone through what you have have. It is probably true that you and your husband have been living too much alone for drinking. Many Times isolates the wife of an alcoholic. Therefore you probably need fresh interests and a great cause to live for as much. Is your husband if you cooperate rather than complain you will find that. His excess enthusiasm will tone down. Both of you will awake into a new sense of responsibility for others. You as well as your husband ought to thank thank of what you can put into life instead of how much you can take out. Inevitably your lives will be fuller for doing so. You will lose the old life if to find one much better. Perhaps your husband will make a fair start on the new basis but just as things are going beautifully he dismays you by coming going home drunk. If you are satisfied. He really wants to get over drinking. You need not be alarmed though. It is infinitely better. He have no relapse at all as has been true with many of our men it is by no means a bad thing. In some cases your husband will see at once that he must redouble his spiritual activities civvies if he expects to survive you need not remind him of his spiritual deficiency he will know of it cheer him up and ask him how you you can be still more helpful. The slightest sign of fear or intolerance may lessen your husband's chance of recovery. In a weak moment he may. Hey take your dislike of his high stepping friends as one of those insanely trivial excuses to drink. We never never tried to arrange a man's life so as to shield him from temptation the slightest disposition on your part to guide his appointments or his affairs. So he will not be tempted will be noticed make him feel absolutely free to come and go as he likes. This is important if he gets drunk. Don't blame yourself. God has either remove your husband's liquor problem or he has not if not it had better be found out right away. Then you and your husband can get right down into fundamentals. If a repetition is to be prevented place the problem along with everything else. In God's hands we realize is we have been giving you much direction advice. We may have seemed to lecture if that is so we are sorry for we ourselves. Don't always care for people woo-hoo lecture us but what we have related is based upon experience. Some of it painful. We had to learn these things the hard way that is why we are anxious that you understand that you avoid these unnecessary difficulties so to you out there who may soon be with us. We say good luck and God bless you. This concludes the reading of Chapter her eight two.
