Fresh update on "grace" discussed on Here and Now

"Let's listen to it I'm sure she meant well Sitting us down and sharing their wishes with us But she couldn't have imagined what this would feel like She couldn't have imagined how deep the need would be to pay her back for everything she did To do right by what's left of her And if anyone has seen the episode that aired this week it was pretty much devoted to that idea of looking back over everything she's done and saying goodbye to her as her life kind of ones down And for folks who may have tuned out in earlier seasons when the show may have flowed a little bit creatively I would encourage them to return to it and check it out because I think it's really finishing strong And if you care about the characters you're really going to like how they're wrapping things up It's a lot for people who really love that show and also other shows that are beloved by maybe a different audience Ozark for one AMC's spinoff to Breaking Bad Better Call Saul and the comedy grace and Frankie along with black ish as well they are all calling it quits in which one are you going to miss most What am I going to miss Well what's interesting to me about most of these shows that are ending is that they seem to be ending when they should end You get a sense that there's a shelf life with a show So I am going to miss what these shows meant when they were at their height But I also recognize sort of the reality of the business which is that there's an art to most series and if you make them go on too long they become sort of empty shells of themselves So in every case I feel like these shows are winding down when they should And the fans should just enjoy the endings as much as they can and you know thanks to streaming you can always go back and start from the beginning and watch the shows from the beginning and enjoy them almost like a good book So that's one of the bright sides Another bright side is there's something else coming in as always a new season with new shows So on the rebound what do you have to recommend for us Well that's the thing that's amazing about this time too is that it is just packed with interesting shows that were good that people may have missed There's a show called candy that was on Hulu starring Jessica Biel as this woman who is in this suburban community and somehow inexplicably winds up murdering a woman that was considered one of her friends It's really interesting and well done There's a version of the man who fell to earth People will remember that as a film that starred David Bowie as an alien that's been reimagined as a limited series and Chiwetel Ejiofor is the alien And there's also a new version of Star Trek This one is one that is most like the original series And I think people who really like the original classic Kirk Spock and bones of adventures are gonna really like this show called Star Trek strange new worlds and it's something that people may not have even noticed because there's just been so much great television that's come to us in the last few weeks and I think there's gonna be coming to us throughout the year We have a lot of interesting.

Balancing Conversations With Liberal Friends and Family

"Hey Charlie, my name is Jonathan. I go to cast a Fullerton. And I guess I have a simple question. Like in a family full of conservatives, we're kind of the minority in the grand family. I just want to know how I can converse with the rest of my family being like liberal. And especially my Friends as well. Without obviously causing Discord in too much hurt, I guess. Yeah. Well, never be the source of hurt. That's my first piece of advice. So don't be the one to call names or try to disassociate from people. But I think every conservative here in this audience would agree that you lost friends, but they left you. You didn't leave them. And I never support the severing of friendships over politics. But I'm also realistic. It happens all the time where people stop being friends with you because of politics. I bet every single person in this room could resonate with that. So look, this is a, this is a situation where you're going to have to balance. Are you going to tell the truth when there might be a consequence to it? And it's also how you say it. It's also how you communicate it, having that balance of a 100% grace with a 100% truth, trying to be magnanimous, and how you communicate, I think is really, really important. But also, you know, understanding that in family dynamics, you have to prioritize whether or not you want the family to kind of stay together, whether or not you want to make a political point. And I don't say this advice lightly. There's some politics that there's some families that should never discuss politics. And there's an argument for that. It's like they're so rigid in their beliefs. It's just going to cause a Civil War. Now, some people say, you know what? I'm going to say what I want to say and I know personally. Dozens of examples of parents that don't talk to children anymore. I think that's really unhealthy. I think it's not good at all. But it's a balance. I think that everyone should know where you stand. And then the final piece of advice is go to work on a family member where there's a little bit of openness.

The Slippery Slope of the Transgender Rights Issue

The Slippery Slope of the Transgender Rights Issue

"You mentioned during the pandemic that suddenly parents got an opportunity via Zoom to look into really what their child was because now instead of asking the teacher they're turning to mom and dad and asking these questions and then we saw the transgender movement in what they were doing with our athletes of saying wait a minute the guy can compete against a girl and just the total unfairness of that lack of justice in that has been the thing that has caused the American people to rise up, moms and dads to say, no, wait a minute. You're not going to do that to my kid. So I think again, that they overplayed their hand in interjected that now into the workplace. Yeah, I mean, look, I always say this before I go into the trans issue. I don't recognize a lot of this nonsense around this issue. But I want the best for all people. We're all made in the image of God. I want nothing more than people that are living under this delusion internally to try to find Jesus Christ and realize that they are living under a delusion. And they need grace and compassion. However, like we could sort that out, we could have your own opinions on that. I'm not going to call you by your pronouns. If I see something different, like I'm not going to play that game. So however, I will say this though, regardless of all of that, the whole kind of bargain around the trans thing was supposed to be like, let us live our life and you live yours and we'll leave each other alone, right? That was kind of the whole thing. And so the personal opinions aside, it kind of sounded fair. Like, okay, you could obviously wear a dress in your own home, you could wear a dress publicly. We're not going to stop you, whatever, okay? That was kind of the way. Now, how naive, right? We were so naive to believe that all of a sudden this was going to be the end of it. And so what happens next? Will you have the 462nd best swimmer in the country who's a man who transitions to be a woman and then wins the NCAA championship, therefore disenfranchising the other women in the NCAA championship, right? And we're supposed to put up with this. And so someone asked me, well, Charlie, what do you think the solution to that is? Well, I think the solution is pretty simple, right? Which is, you know, make the person compete against their own biological sex. He could think he's a woman all day long, but you still got to compete against men like your own delusion is not my problem, right?

There Is So Much Freedom and Peace in Speaking Your Mind

"Have you found that when you step across that line when again that fear is there? I don't want to be identified this. I don't want to be called that way. But once you step across that line, step through that barrier, you suddenly realize it's not what they said it was going to be and you find that there is allies on the other side. They're saying, oh, I'm finally glad somebody else stood up and said what is truth. Yes, it's total freedom. I do three podcasts today, three hours of radio a day. Travel in the country always. And I know a lot of other people in media and they work for certain organizations and they're always reaching out like wow Charlie, like you really speak your mind. I say, yeah, because I don't have to report to somebody if I say something wrong. I'm not going to have to, you know, if I say something incorrect, I'll be the first one to apologize to you. But if I say something true and you don't like it, all right, whatever, there's a sense of freedom and a sense of peace that I want for all of you in your life where all of a sudden you do not care about what they could do to you. And that's not to say that you might not be in that situation right now. I understand that. There might be an employer, there might be somebody that might be threatening. But I do not believe that's how God actually wants you to live his life. You know, the story of the Old Testament largely is God giving abundant grace and delivering God's chosen people from tyranny into freedom, even though they didn't deserve

What Love Is This That Pays so Dearly?

"The death of the lord Jesus Christ, to which he agreed, does not constrain the love of the father, but the love of the father constrains the death of his only beloved son. By God. What love is this? That pays so dearly. I've been thinking about this. The father did not lay on the sun an ordeal he was unwilling to experience. Nor did the son extract from the father. A Salvation he was unwilling to provide. But Christ died in the sinner's place as the supreme, the supreme manifestation and expression of the love of God the father. And dying in our place, he provides reconciliation because we are alienated. Dying in our place, he bears the curse we deserve, dying in our plays. He provides a pardon by bearing our penalty. All the love that drew Salvation's plan. Arranged by God the father. All the grace that brought it down to man. Agreed to by God the son. And oh, the mighty work that God spanned at calvary, because it is applied to us by the Holy Spirit.

What Can Young People Do to Help the 'Bewoke' Generation?

"Years old and I've been trying to be very outspoken about my beliefs, been called all the names you can think of, racist, homophobic, transphobic, has had death threats put against me. And I feel like I'm doing a lot to try and help the students in my high school or high schools around me, but I feel like I'm not doing enough, so my question is, what is your advice to people like me who can't vote to try and help change the hearts and minds of my very woke generation? 17 years old, she's wondering about her functions. The encouraged be encouraged, stay the course. Thank you found a few friends in your corner. I love it. It gives me so much hope, everybody. And if you ever come to a turning point USA event, you'll see one young person after another that's just on fire for this. So you've been called 6 turb sexist intolerant xenophobic, right? Racist bigoted, the whole deal. That's the acronym that could be used for that. So look, I'm going to give you some honest advice you wouldn't want me to tell you anything but that. So you're going to keep on being called names. You're going to be kicked out of social circles. You can not be openly young and conservative and Christian without losing your Friends and without being kind of outcast. It's not possible, okay? Welcome to America. We seek to solve that at turning point USA where the turning point USA chapter has a 150 kids or 250 people. The next thing you know, that's the most popular thing in the high school or the college. And all of their tactics don't work and backfires on them. And we're on pace to have 1000 high school chapters across the country at turning point USA. An incredible accomplishment that our field team deserves so much credit for. So, look,

Why Churches Should Have 'News Ministries'

Why Churches Should Have 'News Ministries'

"I agree with you wholeheartedly that the church is the answer for the things that you were talking about today. But by and large, the church culture doesn't seem to really have the ministry and the things going on in the ministry to address those things. We got like children's ministry, singles ministry. But not things that are really geared to address the things that you discussed today. Not by and large anyway. How would Charlie Kirk consult such a church and helping them to start implementing these things? What a great question. That's a terrific question. And you basically you took my one liner right out of my mouth, which is, so we have children's ministries, some prison ministries. We have financial counseling ministries, women's ministries, men's ministries, but a lot of churches don't have ministries to be able to make to have their congregation make sense of the news. Or what's happening around them. So this is part of what we're trying to do at TPUSA faith and kind of the team that we're creating. We do once a month thing that can be done in any church at any time called freedom night in America, where it's an open setting for questions to be asked for people to come to get advice from their pastors on these issues. I'm so incredibly encouraged to hear you guys have a civic engagement ministry that's such an important step. It's awesome. That's so cool. And that's not political. That's just getting engaged in making the decisions that you want to make. So in the best case scenario, I believe a church should have a full-time pastor where their full-time job is to be the go to person for every contentious issue. So that person is the hey, raise your hand on every Sunday. You got a question about the trans issue. You got to press about CRT. That's the guy schedule lunch or coffee and their calendar all week is dealing with your needs wants and concerns and clarification. That's it.

"Look, we as Christians, we believe in hierarchies, hierarchies of order, hierarchies of beauty, hierarchies. The most important thing in my life is Jesus Christ. That will never change. And this is a very important thing. The church should never get that hierarchy mixed up. And we'll talk about tonight about how to properly communicate that where it comes involved in the church. But if you remain silent on the issues of patriotism and civic engagement, oh, that doesn't matter, well then we're all going to have to open prison ministries everybody because we'll be sharing the gospel from somewhere that is not as nice as this room right now.

Who Is Charlie Kirk?

"Here, believe it or not, because not everybody has access to all the awesome videos and content that you're producing. But who is Charlie Kirk? Who are you? And how in the world did you get to the point where you're at at 28 years old? It depends who you ask, I guess. There's a couple of different answers to that. First of all, I gave my life to the lord in 5th grade, most important decision. I made in my life. I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. So in the state of Illinois, now I'm going to have to now hear my Illinois deal. You guys all know this. You see in Illinois, we have term limits, a little different than most states, one term in office, one term in jail. See? You guys get it. They get it, Missouri. I'll tell you what. All right, how about see when we ask for our governor's cell number? So born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. Started this whole effort to try to save America and save western civilization. When I was 18 years old, I'm wanted to get into West Point, didn't get in. It was the best thing that never happened to me. God has a plan for all of us. And I thought I knew what I was doing, and I didn't. And so I started this effort with no money, no connections, no idea what I was doing. When I was 18 years old in the suburbs of Chicago, and I felt a need, a deep urge that the people of this nation needed to wake up, especially students in young people. I felt that we were given this incredible constitutional republic, and we were making decisions. Self inflicted decisions to turn this country away from righteousness and towards decay and despair. And again, it was a clumsy first couple of years starting at turning point USA at some amazing support along the way. The lord really had his hand on this organization and has had his hand on this organization all along and ten years later. We are now the nation's premier organization for young people, pursuing and defending American values on high school and college campuses across the country.

Ryan Helfenbein: The Extremes of Sexuality Is Being Pushed Leftward

"About what's actually happening, you've probably talked about this on your program, the overton window, where sort of the extremes in our culture of sexuality is continuing to be pushed in a leftward direction. And I don't mean liberal. I mean left, right? Where it no longer even represents humanity. I mean, it goes way beyond the pale. The idea is deconstruction, really at the end of the day, if you have a society that is a sexless society. If you have a society that has taken puberty blockers, had breast removed, as actually surgically has harmed themselves, scarred themselves. This is a generation that becomes the shock troops of a cultural revolution that brings the country beyond the brink of recovery. We can not come back from that. Perceptive friend of mine who was noticing these things. His name is rod Martin. He said, look, you look at a generation and you say, this is back in the 1960s. Get them to hate mom and dad, right? Protest movement. Eventually, though, what happens? They get married. They have kids of their own. And then they realize, aha, mom and dad, we're not that dumb, right? If you get a generation, though, Eric, to hate themselves, they destroy their own bodies, there is no way to come back from that. They never experienced the joy of marriage, they never experienced the joy of children, right? Like irreparably harmed. I mean, but by the grace of God, the only way is Jesus saves, right? So culturally, people are so scarring maligning all of that to where there is no way to bring that back. That's what's happening though. It's sort of the fertile fallacy that's being planted in education at 5, 6, 7, 8. You go all the way back to Stalin, give me your children for four years, right? It's literally that thing. If they can start that early and create enough confusion in children, they'll never be a part of their parents forever. And that is when

"Sun in America. It's very similar. You've got a lot of passage that said, well, I don't want to take on the government or I don't want to be, I don't want to appear like I'm some right wing Trump supporter. So I'm just going to go with the program. And yet there are these handful of folks. You represented legally the great pastor John Macarthur. And one, the same thing with che on and rob McCoy and so many of these pastors that I have gotten to know that they said we are going to stand and I think, wow. And the incredible thing about pastor John and I have loved getting to know him personally, of course, he influenced my life from early. I grew up on his study Bible. My mom graduated from his master's college with her degree. I know that. Wow. So we're a John mcarthur family. So of course, you know, and I listened to grace to you all of that. And that's actually how I ended up representing him, was an elder from their church, saw my tweet and support of their statement. And I said, can you imagine, we've gotten to the point in America where John Macarthur is going to exercise civil disobedience. This is a big day, you guys. Actually, that's really funny. If people don't know the background is that you wouldn't expect him to do that. No, because if you know how much he loves and respects, civil society, how much he understands all of this. He's not a rebellious person. But he is more than anything. Steadfast in his commitment to doing what the lord has him to do. And what he commands in scripture, which is to open your church to be the ecclesia and the gathering of believers. And so when they put out that statement, you know, I tweeted support. They saw that and said, you know, we're looking for a lawyer and I got on the phone with him and I say this is amazing to speak with you and of course this is wrong and here's why and they flew me out to the church that

41% of Kids Who Go to College Don't Graduate

"All, 41% of kids that go to college don't graduate. 41%. Every person in this room knows somebody or you are somebody that went to college and you dropped out. There is this belief that you must go to college to get a higher wage. It's just not true. Every one of those studies is faulty because it doesn't factor in what you're actually studying. It doesn't factor in your work ethic, your integrity, all these other different things, right? Not to mention the dropout rate as it is. But let's just look at an average college or university where the average student debt burden is anywhere between 35 to $40,000 and going up from there. So we have a generation of young people who are telling them to go borrow money. They don't have the study things that don't matter to go find jobs that don't exist. Into an increasing marketplace where they're not actually being filled with skills nor are they developing the full human being. So I would be fully on board for college. If every college like hillsdale college, where they're pursuing or they're going deep into the classics, Socrates Plato and Aristotle Aquinas and Augustine and bacon and Newton and they're really diving into the great books. It's the opposite. They're training activists. And instead, it's this community that's been created where they want you to believe there is no God. And if there is a God, it's you. It's like, wow. Okay. You're gone. Yeah, you're God. You can make the decisions you want to make. And I mean, I run a college organization, right? I have visited well over a 175 colleges, turning point USA is now on over 3000 high school and college campuses across the country, right? Grace God. And so I say this with a good amount of authority, which is college is damaging our country more than most people could ever realize. Every major bad idea that makes your head turn and you kind of think stems from a college campus. Every single one.

Duck Dynasty's Missy Robertson on Unconditional Love

"I'm talking to Missy Robertson. One of the, there are thousands of Robertson's out there. And even in Monroe, Louisiana, there's just like dozens of them, but misses the pretty grandmother. Actually, several there are several pretty grandmothers. It's very confusing. You're married to Jace and you have a children's book out. A new one, which is called because you're my family. And you were just talking about at the heart of it is this idea of unconditional love. And so I have tasted your mother in law's cooking and I love it. But it's not unconditional love. It's based on the quality of the taste of the cooking. You're talking about something very different, which is it's a hard balance for parents. Let's be honest. It's a hard balance because I think Bonham for talks about cheap grace. There's cheap love. You see people that's like love, love, love, but they're not, they're not doing the tough love sometimes with their kids. It's just all, I love you, but they're not understanding that love that it's more complicated than just, I love you. So you're not really talking about kind of sloppy love. You're talking about unconditional love, which is, well, again, it's God's idea of love. That's right. I mean, it's the chase you down in the middle of a rainstorm and save your life before you fall into the river, even though you just disobeyed me, kind of love, which is what happens in the book. And you know, you think about the parable of the 100 sheep. Jesus left the 99. The shepherd leaves the 99 to go and chase after that one. That the unconditional love. That one did not follow the rules. He got away somehow because he wasn't following the rules. And so if he would have stayed within the boundaries of what was expected of him, he would not have had to been rescued. And that tells a lot about us. We mess up every day. We stand every day, but Jesus is unconditional love, blows down over and over and over all over us.

Robert Wilkie on Donald Trump's 'Real American Leadership'

"Secretary Robert wilkie, welcome back to America professor. Thank you. You love you clearly have a passion for history, not just national security. As we were prepping for this show, you talked about this funny story about general Montgomery that you can share with us later. But let's go straight to the heart of the matter. It's been four weeks of war in Europe right now. I was on a British TV show at the weekend. And a conservative outlet. But one of the guests used this trope about president Trump that he was so crazy and unpredictable. My retort was, there was nothing crazy and there was nothing unpredictable. He said America first secure the border treat our allies friends and our enemies as enemies, which is what he did. So talk to us about the importance and I know you've been responding to the rally on news. Talk to us about the importance of personality in real politics. So let me just say why president Trump was in the mainstream of real American leadership. President Trump told the Europeans you have a GDP that's equal to the United States, your population is a little larger. You have lived under the good graces of the American people for 75 years. You have to pull your own weight. John Kennedy admonished de Gaulle and Aden hour. Back in 1961, he said you are living off the fat of the land. American land. So this is the president and the German Chancellor. Richard Nixon said we did not. We did not win World War II, to provide Europeans with two annual vacations. Donald Trump was in the mainstream of that thought. And this is why your point is so well taken. This is a serious business. It requires steel spine and that sounds trite. But aggressors know when they are facing someone who, yes, unpredictability in the mind of your enemy. Because of what you're doing, is essential.

"You've lived many lives and I have to. And I think that's a part of being successful is the ability to be malleable. And learn because yeah, I was a bomb tech. I was a marine before that I was a brick and block mason son, which made me a brick and block mason's manual labor. I was the son of alcoholic who was also a perfectionist and had social anxiety. I was the son of a mother who is dedicated to God, but found God through traumas since she was little. She was essentially told to marry a man at 15 and on her wedding night to conceive my sister at 15. And within a few years had to figure it out on her own. And I don't mean to go dark there, but all of those things make us who we are. And growing up, learning how to be you, I needed to be for the people that were raising me because they were hurting in their own way. And learning to see the best part of them day in and day out, even on the tough days. And the best part of them was pretty amazing. I mean, selflessness doesn't even begin to describe them. But there are also moments that they were very selfish and didn't mean to be. And at the end of the day, when it comes to being successful and making it through live, or making it through something like losing your legs, you just got to learn that grace in patients and if I had to learn it at a young age, thank God. You know, we sit here and look at our kids, and we go, man, they're spoiled. They're spooled rotten. They will never have it like we had it. How can we turn them into as good of people? And I think we have to take a step back and say, that's a little bit uppity of ourselves. And say, well, you can only be a good person if you've been through what I've been through. So there's a lot of perspective to be had there. But for me, I grew up really humbly, and I say humbly, just modestly, I guess, is the better word. I grew up in the 1960s single wide. I'm not running for office. That's not what I'm talking about, my mom and dad here, but I grew up in the 1960s, single wide, and watched my parents build a life in the 90s with manual labor. My mom clean houses, my dad laid brick and block, and in the 90s, you know, love him or hate him. The Clinton years were pretty good. Financially or economically here in the south. And so they built the life that way.

But i didn't know people going through the same exact scenario that i was going through with the miscarriage followed by this. How was i supposed to feel it on facebook and then the group's vanishing twin syndrome and there. It was right there for me. A group full of women who had gone through the exact same thing. And i want to give that example. Because it's so random so not like a huge like moms in southern oregon. Group is very specific to what i'm dealing with in those groups are out there for everyone. So that's i think the whitest net you could cast. But also i tell loaded the app marco polo and just got an acted with friends. I'd used to be friends with so text. I would start texting an old friend. I am now texting a couple of friends. I worked with fifteen years ago and we're just texting regularly. And then we went onto marco polo and suddenly. I have someone in my hand talking to me and being able to talk through these issues. I know that. I'm making it sound simpler than it is it is. I mean that is a saving grace. We've all said it. We said this is my saving grace here my therapist you're here for me like and we're getting down and dirty in the things hard in our lives and just reaching out to someone who maybe you've lost contact with or reaching out to someone in your contact list who you think would be a good friend. Now you've noticed you guys have the same similar stuff going on or or whatever it is. They're they're two. They are in that same position and once you say it out loud to them. There's that moment of the exhale where you're like. I was the only one the only one feeling. Like i was in a rut during this pandemic in that you know..

"Just get on with my day faster and also like pour out the love. I wouldn't we pour out love to people we pour out love to ourselves and we're just feel better about our lives in general. I think i desperately see to jump to rage as my gut reaction. It's right under the surface. And i mean it has become it can it. There are moments where it will come to the surface and i- cognitively think okay i can weaponize this and destroy them or i can diffuse the bomb an outwardly apologize right now and show some grace to them and then deal with myself and my own and finding not for myself. Because i don't know if it. I don't know that. I'm entirely taipei. Heather might be able to. She's probably like. Are you kidding. But i feel like i have seasons where i can kind of step back and just like. I don't care what happens as long as people are being respected. Honored and their dignity is being protected. And so when i realized oh i'm about to shred their dignity into confetti and throw it all over their grave and celebration i need to check my heart right immediately because it's so simple to go back to that gut reaction like you were saying about the ego just fuel this nation mind says. I'm better than them. Because i had the quicker response i had the the faster Protection or myself and in this interaction. And i'm never gonna see him again. So who cares if i burn it all down in it. I have a question for you. Girls because i feel like it's been somewhat advantageous that we've all been in a place like in a public in the public eye. That's people are not nice with their scrutiny. Right so that's kind of helped. In a way to leverage some of our advancements in this specific area daniel what would you.

"Is the us and in a kind of a it. Talk sic positively been which is complete in stark opposite of graham as a person and i i am very careful when i say that only because i i mean even in the book i talked about that. You're so smart like it. I'm going to have to read that. Because over my head. But i can't wait really understand at the level fit resented in your book on the idea being the difference between coaching and Maybe pursuing the positive like positively mindset. It's when i see This is gonna alienate some people. But i am okay with that. 'cause we're here to be uncomfortable there when i see the phrase good vibes only i immediately go back and tech where i'm at as a person because there is no room in life there's no guarantee in life there has never been a time in life when only good vibes presence and this idea that We can only old. One emotion at a time is misleading. It is so part of what i really love to work with. People on is not to say. Hey go explode an area of your life if there's grief because we talk a lot of times with clients for like well. I don't know if i'm grieving. Might he might. Not be kneeling. Weighed down by grief right now. And that's great. You may be reading something. We're not aware of and i'm happy to often questions. And then you decide because it would be really easy for me to say you had a miscarriage. You're grieving but like frankly i was This last year i read. I think i've said this before. I had a miscarriage. And twenty at the beginning of twenty twenty and i was devastated or was not okay for me. I was not okay for a very long time. what i was reading The coming by michelle obama at the time and in the book she discloses that she had a miscarriage and her perspective on that and her la with the complete opposite of mine. She was like no confine moving on but in the book even addresses. Someone says something about greece to her and she. That's where he said no. It's not a big deal. I'm okay and that alone told me. He's beat. I cannot project that an assumption that you having a miscarriage means you're grieving. I can only ask you questions of well. What's to that for you. What's your our system. What's your framework. What is your history. Look like because all of that is gonna lead into what you're grieving. So i think for me with when it comes bringing it so full circle back Cognitive behavioral techniques. If the idea that you can change your minds it's it's the growth mindset in a psychological framework right and it's easily beers into toxic positively and i talk about this in the book There's a story when. I was in college that i got a see on a paper or a test or something and i was devastated because i didn't earn fees but i remember vividly walking into like the the In union and a group of my friends and someone like some acquaintances and saying just feeling happy about it. Feeling lamenting see that i earned and things i'm like. Oh i can't believe i gotta see. I'm so miserable not with this. I'm going to let it ruin my day. Because it's really not the type of person that i am just inherently just. I need to express that. I'm disappointed but i'm frustrated and if women that i barely knew said something like oh my god. You're still passing us. Novick deal you're gonna be fine. And then she quickly moved on. And i was like that that that has stuck with me since i was nineteen because he had no ability to own space for me. It wasn't even. her conversation. Did not have the capacity for whatever reason to allow me to feel heavy now you could easily say. She was just trying to be nice. Insure me up. And i'm reading into it and that's entirely possible but the point is it comes to greet. It is my story to tell it is not someone else's story dictate. It is not someone else's opportunity to tell me how i should be grieving and that is where i have found especially again in the big c church We struggle because we have an agenda. We have a federal. We have program to run. We have people in services to lead and people do evangelize or or you know whatever it is that we've got agendas and a lot of people. Just don't understand that. If i am grieving when you read scripture to me it makes me angry with the how can now be true if you love. Jesus you love the bible and then you hear scripture while you're grieving it doesn't bring you comfort. There's lots of reasons and so we're inherently intuitive people so many no sir word of i'm not saying we are hundred percent accurate. We know sort of now kind of where they're coming from you know. They're not trying to be dismissive intentionally. The beautiful part of it. Yeah yeah that we know. No one okay. So this is a very broad statement that someone could easily disprove but we know that people are not out trying to hurt us now when with anything. It's a matter of do i as someone trying to encourage grier have the emotional capacity to take a step back and admit that i have nothing to offer them. Do i have the capacity to allow them to not be okay. Do i have the grace within me. If they see you and the stocks. I have nothing to offer but i'm here whenever you're ready and you know what that might be something that you know as part an attack an additional thing that you bring to your services in providing the partners to showa in a screening process because he knew it now you that's so good idea i of course i do. I mean because i have a million things going at once. It's hard to keep track of even for me I went to a friend of mine. Who used to live here and moved to the and for love her so much. He is one of the most straightforward. This is how i feel deal with it. Move on people the other day she reach out me and she said i just need you to know. I think this is important for me to tell you. I was having a conversation with a friend. They told me about a lot. And i started to bear. What i realized was a platitude and i stopped myself. Mid-sentence and i said i'm so sorry. That was a lot of to let me try again and corrected what. I said that my friends thought an unlocked and just opened up and thank me for what i did and so and she said. I just think you need to know that what you're doing is is real and tangible and actually making a difference in changing lives. I thought that. I i mean i'm still so grateful. She reached out. Because witching isn't something that you necessarily get to see outcomes up right. We're not we're not therapists. Were not long family.

We have to carve out some time to like. Get those back out there because there was so much that we learned recording these podcasts. And i think that's valuable and they're so there just so much. There was so much raw. So i'm a little bit sad but excited for the next session. Be yeah we definitely had some very very good interviews and really and like if that bra conference with people that i think surprised us which what the big deal. We went into this. You know ready for intense uncomfortable conversations and preparing our guests and ourselves. And i still feel very honored and then call for how people opened up. And we're going to be. It's going to be hard to let it sit. But i'm excited to see what it turns into in season two as well so right. It kinda reminds me when you get into all the next net flicks Show and like the beginning from the end. Like like the beginning. A so clunky. And like like okay. I love the storyline blah blah blah. But am i going to really really Veg on this unlike. Watch this the whole time images pulls you in so my hope is that That that will be the next the next season of this of yeah. I i agree. I love that. Because i'll start a show and be like I love three of these characters. And i am already committed them in my heart so i sure hope the storyline lasts a while and and i feel that way about great for your hope in us and we love yes or real okay so today. We are talking about race in coaching. Because you and i are both life coaches. I'm a certified like in grief poaching. You focus on executive coaching and start up businesses. I've of success coaching. Which is kinda intermingled with career Entrepreneurship in life. Which is a weird blend. But yeah but it's a fascinating blend that has you in high demand and reading incredible opportunities. People and i think it's a wonderful conversation press deposit because it is but more importantly like after going to the pandemic And filling a little bit isolated a nation and then as like a little sub communities that we've a lot of us experienced some huge loss. And i think it wasn't a like a like a Sands or like a coincidence. That you Had this skill set eh. Humanity like just being agreed coach. It's such a necessary necessary. Need out there. Right now specifically and recently interviewed by reese keller. I love read. It went great so raises a friend. I met on twitter. He's an author as well.

I'll talk to you about how we went. How it went for us and We ended up having a really wonderful conversations. He learned a grease coach. He learned that. I'm a writer and on top of podcasting and leading women night and doing writing a book in all these different things. And so we had a really really good conversation Or you mic on job. You so kind in his interview and he. Yes all the questions. I would have wanted him to ask about my friend who is just multifaceted super valuable in my life and not i mean now you can go on ahead of time speaker all the people but specifically my own life a i know one thing. I thought was super fascinating. I love the way you answer this question. He asked you. What are the differences that you see or fill in the uncomfortable. Grace podcast now. Compared to win it was first launched. And i was like ooh. What is she going to say. Europe high was so powerful.

"Was able to then apply that idea to all of the different intersections of homelessness. Right whether because when you talk about how homeless you can easily start talking about a billion other things right right. You talk about housing and shelter and hunger poverty. You can talk about substance use of addiction mental illness. You can talk about foster care. Like homelessness is actually Less of a less of a failed system as much as like the the last safety net. Or it's it's not a safety net. It's it's the bottom. It's the catch all of kind of the failures of so many of our systems right. Yeah a manifestation of of the broken nece in other systems. Yeah yes that's a good way of saying it. Yeah i describe it often as like homeless is like a hospital like there's a million reasons why you end up at the hospital and sometimes sometimes it's partly your fault like you know you're a kid and you stacked up a ramp on like unsturdy foundation and went off of it on your bike. And that's why you're in the hospital and other times you're in the hospital because You cut covid and and so it's this place where so where everyone is from. So many different walks of life can end up and also the everyone who ends up. There should be responded to in treated with dignity. right so Yes so. I got a little bit of your original question. No but once. I realized this connection grace and i realized oh to talk about homeless as you have to talk about all of these things and i think the in all of these areas. We need to apply this idea of grace. It manifests a little bit differently in each one. That's when i realized oh this is. This is a larger piece this is. This is the book. I've been wanting to write and now that i now that i get it i want to start writing it. That's so so incredible that you can recognize all the different nuanced parts of homelessness and have the inner grace to like. Turn that into a book with out just turning it into a judgment or a tirade right..

"I love seeing your heart for the homeless community and just the way that you have started to at least in my mind changed the way i think the way i approach even the idea of a conversation about the homeless community So before we dive into all that really good stuff. Why don't you tell me until our audience a little bit about yourself sure And thinks you're saying that that is that is my my mission. It's nice to know that Being on twitter has any sort of positive outcome. Yeah i my name is kevin I live and work in los angeles. I work at a nonprofit doing homeless services and advocacy But i'm also a trained minister Have an md from fuller theological seminary and an expired ministers license from the church gathering. I i like to say that. It peaks interest. We can talk about that more later. and i'm also a writer. I have been writing for a long time on the intersections of theology and popular culture but more recently as i've Really established myself in homeless services have been turning a lot of my writing. Attention toward writing about where homelessness intersects with a christian faith in theology and specifically on the notion of grace in the title of your podcast So yeah. And i'm i'm currently writing a book on homelessness and grace and yeah. That's that's me. I love that your book is even titled grayson. Homelessness mistaken title pending. But grace hiding somewhere. Absolutely well tell me about why you are work became a because you can have a heart and do the work but how did you decide you know what actually need to write a book about this because there has to be something that triggered where it's a bigger conversation that you're not able to have on twitter your question i mean i've always been a writer Long before i wanted to be anything else. I wanted to be a writer and so It's always been a dream of mine to write a book. And i've had a billion different ideas about what that book could be over the years but as my my life has ended up as a you know a a theologically educated person Who is trained in ministry but not doing traditional church ministry and really involved in the world of homelessness It just it just made sense that that needed to be what i was writing about and as i was thinking about it And and really. It was that i've been working in homeless services for awhile and the conversations that i was having with christians about services almost felt like they were completely detached and had nothing to do with. It was seeing in my work as what needed to change. What needed to happen was not the conversations that And not just christians but the anyone outside of that world new to ask or new to have yet. I was like okay. What what's missing here. What what is this gap I'm gonna start writing about it. But what is it. That's that's missing. And i eventually kind of boiled it down to two grace in a way And and that's where. Once i once i made that connection and had that thought and i.

"And i love the humility. You were able to walk in looking around. And saying i see where you're at and i see what you're holding onto and i've been there recognize that that's a that's a significant thing as so. Did you even get to a place where you felt. You could approach relationships in the context of church or in the context of faith conversations. Because not many people can do that as there's also a possibility that it may not be received well received. Well like wh-. What would i like what you have to say like you know. You're you're saying like i. I've been there thinking your head i've been there. I've been in this place. Where i see that you're at an so walking in that. Okay i understand but how are they going to receive. This is that you know. That's maybe where the grace part plays like you have to. You know all of this. You know new grace from you like okay. I see where you're at. I don't necessarily want to say you're wrong. But i want to engage in this and pushed deeper into this. Because i think it's important. Yeah and i think that's where i used to work. I used to live in cloud falls in us to work with youth over there too and one of the things that get constantly like They would thomas like what he always had to ask you. Questions is i think. I i usually wouldn't Usually what i've noticed is i would lean into people would ask questions to really know where they're at and i think as a coach i learn how to create safety within people to for them to actually show up incident when they show up. I get to bring who i am but then also at the same time need them more. They're out to that at the same time. I'm not like pushing what. I think i should push on them. Rather than i think it's more about pulling something out of them in the making them think about what they believe or asking a different angle of why they believe what they believe in. And so so. I think that's kinda like what i've learned working with youth because if you're working with youth they have. They have their own kind of way of thinking. They can be stubborn. They can be like this is how it is. You know whatever and things like that and so it's like oh like but since they also see this relationship with me as their leader they they've given me a mission to us questions into like. Oh have you thought about this way or you know this is probably causing this thought and things like that and i think that i've learned to approach people that way.

"You don't wanna take advantage of people but you also don't want to presume people's no and not invite them into something that might actually touch their life. It might actually give them something to be passionate about that. That awaken something in them. And so i think a lot of times. We try to create these hedges of like no. No you're all too busy. And instead of inviting people in entrusting them to be mature and healthy enough to actually set their own boundaries and As people kept saying we're in here early in the morning they're on they're on it and and i'm wrestling with it. But that was important. I think for my process was us letting people come alongside and and and be okay with it. Yeah i think that one of the things. I recognize the new statement. Was we're both any graham threes to totally walk down that trail and we're strong willed. We are wildly capable. And of course we can do all the things right with that wing to yeah with the to ing. It's total crap. Shoot if you're going to let anybody help you or if you're going to say l.'s. Cut you off totally fine. I feel like i gained in myself even watching you and watching the other two a ton of humility in the process and i think even texted you afterwards realized we missed all these things or they didn't get missed they got. They uncorrected themselves in the print. I was like this is my name is on this and i am so proud and i had to keep reminding myself. I am proud of the imperfections like talk about growth in that moment. That's not as simple place. And i'm sure you experience some this. Yeah because everybody says there's gonna be mistakes is going to be edits that you you're going to notice i'm like nah. You just want to throttle them. Stereo you on somebody else's maybe you're talking about but it's so true and being okay with it of course as most of the stories we heard you open it first page. I think it was in the introduction or something there's a double word and And realizing that it's the it the passion and the beauty of what's been poured into it. It is really going to affect people's lives and it is not the fact that there isn't edits that or that. There's no edits that are needed or the you've got the right picture with the right article every single time. It's not. It's really not that. And i think to take that even a step further remembering that really. The powerful reality of this is that people are setting a hard target every day for god to interact with them. And who even if the article is terrible that day It doesn't matter because it's really the holy spirit saying you're setting off a for me every day and whether it's every day consecutively or just the fact that you're going through this ninety one days of setting a target for me I think that's the beauty of trusting god to take our efforts to make something that's effective and powerful and beautiful for people but really he's he's gonna make it go beyond that and so not over thinking over worrying over on all the edits in the paper thicknesses and all those things break gave me permission the other day. We were reediting again to create a pdf to release. And i was going through in helping. And i got sick traveling. I had like twelve meetings in one day. And that was the day that i was like. Yeah i'll totally look at this today. And he messages and says. Do you actually have time to do this or do you wanna give yourself some grace and just say it's going to be what it is just like I hear you thank you friend. I want that..

Okay well we're here today to talk about grace in the growth process and like we were saying earlier. You are very good at diving into a process. Really dragging out the meat of what needs to be Consumed in found in it so in the last six months. You completely changed your daily trajectory pastor. And you've been that for ever many years ago. But now born lorna pastor funny So now you are. An author. Turns out your published author. I've been asked me you publish you anything you want. Look what i did. I'm an author. Yeah what about bob. And being a sailor sailor. The boat does most of the work. That's about the equivalent of author. That i am baby steps into baby steps to the elevator. Yup so why did you feel the poll to venture into writing. I think it was a conversation. That and i had about the some of the frustrations of doing what we do. Ministry and leading people We are in a model that is we. We don't want to go down this road. Either i guess but just kind of the american church model where your your job is to draw as many people together as you can. And that's a it's kind of a crowd mentality where you're successful because you can get so many people to come on a sunday morning. And that's the constant tension is like following jesus he was always dispersing the crowd he was always looking for followers and disciples and so then kate. I've been talking about this for a while. Is how do we within the context of what we know..

"Whatever you want from the outside looking in because it does seem like my family is Were very public. Were very much in the public. Ice so It's i've had to make a lot of adjustments and really decide that i was okay with what people thought. Yeah but i learned that from moving from house to house and realizing everybody has their set of issues right dysfunction. Does i think dysfunction is when you're when you have unhealthy connections and you just avoid doing anything about it. That's what that's tiny. It's a hard word to it. I it is really a hard or design around quite a bit and liberally. And i wasn't just i mean i wasn't just a homeless teen i was There's so many so many bad situations. Yeah i could mention right now. That was such a valuable lesson for me. Well and i don't think i have a question for you too. But before i ask it. The dysfunction is not a conflict or not the same thing. No but we've aligned them because it's very easy to say. Oh my gosh. there's so dysfunctional. The can't agree on what restaurant to go to know straight up. They have bigger underlying issues and the restaurant just triggered something really unhealthy and really avoided that's been avoided for maybe even generations like that alone. You wanna talk about breaking off a generational curse no longer allowing backbiting. The christmas dinner table. You know what. I mean total anyway but i wanted to ask you. You said you went into these homes. And knowing i'm living by myself and i've got this family behind me that i've just started wallowing in self pity of really identified with with the conflict in our home in a way that just gave you this prideful kind of false identity. What is it that has shifted. Because you're not a prideful false identity self pitying person today so what was it that. How did that shift off of you. Well coming out of a.

"It sink in per minute let it become a part of who you are like. I'm still that conversation. I had with my kid. I'm still like it's such a tool for me to take with me every day and conversation and I just used to be so quick to move to the next thing. And i think has been a year to really hold onto the importance of allowing yourself to really learn what the revolution was there for on it assists flaming thing. It's willing to be expected. It's willing to sit in expectation because waiting is hard and we don't want to do it because it's uncomfortable and even for christmas. We borrow a bunch of books from library. Every couple of weeks and i intentionally picked books about generosity and waiting for my daughter to read and one of them was titled. Waiting is not easy and she would get so frustrated waiting for christmas morning and she's ask if if she could open a book or a president. Excuse me and then say oh. I know the answer is no and i know mom because waiting is not easy and she would just haram f- in cross arms on the couch. But i'm like jaap dude. Yeah do you understand what you're building in yourself. You know how much character you are going to be able to stand on this time next year because of your willingness to be miserable right not miserable but not get that instant gratification of what you want and and maybe that's it maybe it's we are a generation that lacks the value of delayed gratification. The hat. I have something out of that really quickly. So i- in that whole idea of waiting for christmas to come. I can't wait to give gifts. So yeah i am so excited like i'm constantly like i know you want openness and you want to open this so i got to see how that has been such a hindrance in my family in my my personal life because i'm so excited for somebody to gain you know some amount of euro your.

next year christmas one of them weeks euro

"Because that's ridiculous. I just went to worship leader school. Why would i come home to step down. Lots of reasons but yeah just learning that my season in the wilderness became constant tension pressing up against areas. That i didn't realize i was defining myself with a things that i didn't notice i placed on my shoulders as crucial that when i was willing to get uncomfortable and actually removed them from my life and make space for what could come more of your identity was revealed so much of it just flooded to the surface and if you knew me then versus now it's a completely different experience to be in my life than it was three years ago or even i mean i think ideally we all want to say i'm a new year new me everybody's saying about right now so it's great but it's pretty much false for a lot of people right so this amazing me of this guy every year in the same t shirt on new year's day and it said new year new me across.

"The reason. I really wanted us to talk about tension. Not only because the fact that you and i both liked to look at situations and kind of make it awkward and uncomfortable to press into things and get new. Ground is awkward. I don't like to make curves. I like to make it off. So this is great The the story. In luke when jesus goes into the wilderness for forty days and he's fasting and he's seeking the father. There's this idea that comes out of it. And i've been wrestling with it for about two years. Now my this idea that in the wilderness all character is formed or into all characters formed intention so a couple years ago just backtracking. I felt like god was calling me into a season of the wilderness Essentially i was really just stuck in this place of trying to make everyone around me really satisfied really happy really pleased. I'm very good at a lot of different things so it was really easy for me to step in and say of course i can do that for you. Of course it can do that for you. And at the same time. I was constantly telling. God why can do those things for you. Don't any time lord. And he was like well. Actually you have all the time. You've just committed it to everyone but me. So why don't you come into the wilderness with me and you'll never be lost in the woods again once you're there with me and for me. It was this moment of. I am totally overwhelmed by all of my guess is all of the things i've committed to and i have no time to spend in intimacy with the father. I don't know what that looks like anymore. So he walked me through for a long time. The story in luke where jesus is tempted in the wilderness are after coming off the wilderness and comes out of the wilderness into temptation right..

"I i appreciate having people around me. I surround myself with people that will challenge me and that kind of way and it fills abrupt in your heart. Kinda like stops in the moment but if you'll lean into it yeah you know there's something of value there to take away from it and hopefully it won't make the same mistake but i had another conversation with my oldest about something similar he said Our conversations have been kind of Via facetime and the phone shared said the they've felt kind of What's the word I can't remember. He used a specific word. That was amazing. There was a disconnect but I mentioned a hamster. Like telling me. Like when i'm annoying. You like oh sure like share that with me. You know you're an adult now. You're twenty three years old Instead of just saying it's okay mama like it's on a big deal. I'm like i want to learn everything willing to take care. Yeah absolutely and vice versa. I mean he has to right he has. I can't fix anything if i don't know right. What the issue is right. And so i've been trying to facilitate tate that within my family for at least the last eight years. Yeah you find that that alignment in your own heart with the willingness to be corrected. It takes massive amounts of practice as you know and like you were saying you can't go out into the world and expect interact with it correctly or even in a healthy way not even correctly but in a healthy productive way when we have all these wounded people running around trying to make corrections trying to really just self protect when there's conflict and and even to hear you say like my son called totally called me out for what i said qualifying sure in the conversation. It's just so it's so rare but it's powerful to give your family. Give anyone else permission to say you get to speak into these places that are probably going to upset me. That will most likely push me back on my heels. Excuse me and caused me to really question where.
