Gay district spirituals the best open mic and it was every wednesday and she hosted it for like. She's a legend. She passed away. You know and this was joanna and so at that point there was.

"John able to catch up today. And i know we're going to be speaking about the future of human experience when it comes to the evolution of ai. I've liked to win this series. Start with where things are starting to roll forward already today. In different experts have different opinions. You have very unique of your own. I know you can think longer term but when you think about a as of now in terms of how it's altering how we live. What normal is what do you think of the most significant bits. They're already i'm first of all. I'm really glad that you asked that a lot of people. Think of as something. That's a future thing that might or might not happen whereas artificial intelligence of software techniques that we've had for decades and so it really is important but we're talking about the distant future to think about while japan what you mean Passed so we really do have to look at the last fifty years on how we've been altered already by digital technology. Now one of the tricks you may have noticed just slide. It sideways into digital technology from a and that's because a lot of the conversations that definitions the arguments people get into around the term. Ai so if what you mean by a i is something.

Human is the set of constraints that we have as apes right. And that alters how can learn what we can proceed what actions were capable of some time rate at which able to respond since like that. Okay so you're not gonna get that something that you On is just not like that. But if what you mean what i mean when i talk about artificial intelligence as the subset of all intelligent things which somebody's made intentionally right. It's an artifact so talents modified artifacts not not not rocket science. But you'd be surprised. How much will argue with that.

"joanna" Discussed on The Living Room with Joanna Weaver
"To him. Throughout the day. Continuous ended conversation. Now listen i have never heard the audible voice of god. Speak to me back. And i would really like that but i've decided not to let that hinder me because by faith i know he is right there. And by faith as i just share my life with him It's just a sweet sweet sense of his presence. That comes sometimes. I'll just comment on the beauty and say well how god you just made this earth so beautiful or sometimes i'm like oh lord i don't even know what to do in this situation and i just pray a breath prayer of him for his help. Sometimes i just expressed gratitude and thank him for what he's given all the blessings i enjoy. Sometimes it's just simple. Oh lord help me. Kind of prayer but in this continuous conversation. I think i'm coming to to understand a little bit of what palm it in i. S aloni and five seventeen when he said pray without ceasing. Now listen that doesn't mean that we're just babbling on and on and on and on you know you've had a friend like that that you couldn't get an edge word in edgewise. If you want it now it's not that you pat it. I think sometimes the sweetest conversation is just this. Evan plow. I'm not foreseen it. We're just comfortable with each other. It's it's kind of the intimacy that my husband and i are enjoying where we'll go through a period where we talk and we share deep things or then we'll shot talking to share shallow things. Sometimes were just silent and we just enjoy being together. That's the kind of friendship. God wants to have with us to pray without ceasing that word ceasing in the greek means just constantly reoccurring as something comes to mind that we just bring guide into the loop so acknowledged god's presence in fight guy to take the throne of your heart and then talk to him throughout the day as you do. This friendship is going to blossom. This romance is to become is going to become so sweet. As i was thinking about intimacy with god i was reminded a brother lawrence in that famous book called practicing the presence of guy. It was written way back in the seventeenth century brother. Lawrence was just a humble cook in a french monastery. It was written as a series of letters that he never intended to be published but he had written to a friend just describing this intimate friendship that he enjoyed with god as the lord over the years. And i think that's key it wasn't immediate. It was over the year as he simply practice the presence of god it knowledged god in every single part of his day whether he was washing dishes or scrubbing floors or attending vespers. With the other monks brother lawrence knowledge. God any any enjoyed living conversation with guide. Always turning everything even the mundane tasks to axe appraise and communion with god. And you know what. I've just decided that rather than time blocking my life and leaving a piece for cheeses and just doing my duty and having my quiet time but then going on and doing my own thing the rest of the day. I don't know i don't know that that's true friendship instead. I want to invite jesus into every part of my heart. Because i believe that's the true secret to intimacy with god in the business of life hanging out with jesus doing life with him making him the focus of our heart even as we go grocery shopping or as were answering emails that we do it in his presence. I hope you won't miss this kind of friendship. That got so wants to enjoy with you because i can tell you from experience. It's everything you long for an everything you need. I cannot tell you that every moment of my day is infused with the tangible presence of god. It isn't my life's very ordinary in sometimes. Sometimes just like you i. I have to do it by faith. Not by feeling but as i do i think at least i hope god with concur. I'm enjoying a deeper and sweeter friendship with him. I believe it's the secret to a victorious. Life i believe it's the secret to living and loving and leading like jesus. It's the living room you guys. It's the living room intimacy. That marion joys. As she sat at jesus feet not coming up with clever responses not serving him a lavish meal betcha simply being in his presence drinking in his love absorbing hall of his wisdom and then pouring out her love in worship and service to god. that's the living room intimacy.

Podcast has been featured on itunes new and noteworthy in christianity category as well as the larger category of religion and spirituality. And that's really a big deal so thank you thank you. Thank you Well as i've been preen about what to share in the solo episode. I kept coming back to the topic of intimacy with god in the business of life. Because that's always been my challenge. I just be honest I'm a good girl. I wanna do good things but have always really struggled to carve out a daily quiet time with the lord but you know what as i was thinking about that and about the tools that i'm really excited to share with you on an upcoming episode. I just felt the holy spirit say Let's just back up a little bit. Joanna because poor talking about intimacy. If we're talking about friendship you know what that is not a method or a program that we need. No in fact i think sometimes we look for methods and programs Quickly as christians. We want to figure out how to fix it but a a relationship takes time. I mean think about your marriage. Think about your friendships. It's only as you invest time as you spend time in proximity with that person that the relationship grows as christians. We talk a lot about having a personal relationship with god. But i don't think we realized how much god wants to have a personal relationship with us. I believe it's the reason why we were created. What should go clear back to the beginning to the card in the eden. When god said let us make man in our image. It wasn't just this celestial science project he wasn't to say hairless pop plop adam and eve in on earth and see what happens. No god created them to have relationship with them. The bible tells us that they would walk and talk in the cool of the day. It was a living vibrant relationship and yet sin sin ended the garden but it did not end the relationship. God clothed them and then love followed them out of the garden and continue to initiate relationship with man. The bible is in fact as an entire story of god's love reaching out for us god looking for people to call his own and even though we were checked at him time and time again his love just kept on reaching going so far as to send his son to live in walk among us to show us his love to show us the father and who god really is. I love how jesus didn't just say. Hey all of you. You come to where i am now. Jesus went to where people were and he spent time with them. He called his disciples and he lived with them. It was all about relationship and then he went so far as to die in our place and take our sin and our punishment. So that you and i could be reconciled back to relationship with our heavenly father. It's been the plan from the beginning of time that you and i would have friendship with god. I love how we fijian's one puts it in the message. Verse four says long before he laid down earth's foundation god had us in mind had settled on us as the focus of his love to be made whole and holy by his love. Long long ago he decided. Listen to this you guys. He decided to adopt us into his family through. Jesus christ what pleasure took implanting this. Oh you may not realize this my friend but you are deeply loved and deeply desired by god. He wants to know you and he wants to be known by you but intimacy with god can be a little threatening. I know i felt at times. We know that we need it. A we even long for deep inside. But we don't always know how to get at least. That was my story i've shared in previous episodes. How that. I've always been a good girl wanting to do good things and yet when it came to spiritual disciplines and really cultivating my walk with god. I was so undisciplined that i felt like a complete failure. I remember thinking okay. I know that. I need to have a quiet time and you know. Let me just insert here that. I am excited to share practical tips and tools to help. You have a quiet time that is meaningful and rich but but you know what if we make it a programmer. A method were gonna miss out on the friendships. That god wants to have. And so. I'll share that. In in in future episodes. I even plan on releasing a living room. E course that will give you some of the tools that really transformed my walk with god but before we get there. I wanna share some secrets to intimacy with god. First of all the first secret to intimacy with god is this. It isn't what we do. It's what god has already done and listen. I kind of shared some of that. How jesus came and then how he died but do you realise. Do you realise what his death on the cross did it took away. The bible says the dividing wall of hostility that stood between us and god that dividing wall that separated simple man from a holy god and because of cheeses his.

About burst mapping and the new bible study bible. That's come out from zondervan and we tell us. How did you even get started in. Bursts mapping how did a fiction author tie. She's she's not only does jesus girl but she's a word girl. I love that question. It has a very long answer. Does fortunate we are that we are on a podcast conversation and we can talk through some of that. I would say I'm asked often. I would say it has more to do with the space of ministry that god calls you to as a storyteller burst is being a fiction author or nonfiction author or any number of things that you can do that. The lord has called me to the space of ministry from where art and history and faith intersex so that can look like a lot of things right. It can look like historical fiction and it has. I'm working on my eighth ninth and tenth novel so he looks like that but also just this great love of stories and storytelling and that for me has bridged across to nonfiction. Into verse mapping and somewhat. I didn't college I went to art school. So i'm art girl Not really good into drawing painting not that kind of art art research and research writing. So that's my background. And it's just this love of like. I said art and history and faith coming together in the ward saying once you start telling the stories that i want you to tell and just stepping stepping out if you will into that.
Employers aim for hybrid working after Covid-19 pandemic - How will it work?
"Exactly a year ago the pandemic forces all out of the office and our studios and sent us working from home. Well we were setting up our at home audio booths. A lot of other people around the world were setting up their at home offices and it soon became clear that we'd need some long term solutions for that not just laptop stacked on top of piles of books. So that's when we turn to our senior personal tech columnist to anna stern and some of you may remember. We had a regular segment with her on the task of working from home now a year later. Were hoping that our days of working remotely are numbered but even when we do reach the other side of the pandemic a slew of companies have announced that they aren't expecting employees to go back to work in the same way as in the pre pandemic days. The new buzzword is hybrid. But what does that mean exactly. Well who better to answer that question. Then of course joanna stern. She's back with us today. Joanna so great to have you here so good to be back all right so right now. It's me sellin my home studio you and your home office. But we're all excited to get some more real facetime in person you've been talking to a bunch of companies. What are they saying about this idea of hybrid work. What does that mean. They are all saying the word hybrid hybrid hybrid hybrid hybrid work. It means that you will work some time at home and time at the office and the analysts are saying that the brunt of people want this people want to work sundays at home. And there's a magic number. Two days i heard the number two to three days so many times in reporting this story everyone is saying we'll spend two to three days at the office or two to three days at home. You pick the number of days so that so bad fifty fifty give or take. Let's talk about what that's going to look like many of us work in open offices. How are those gonna change with this hybrid model so it definitely depends on your organization and how they plan to shake things up and move the spaces around but knowing that we might spend two to three days at home. It doesn't make sense for many of these companies to have permanent desk space for everybody. So that's why there are these new models of thinking about what the the office space will look like and go through. What i think are three ways. This could look at your company. One is same old right. Nothing changes you. Actually go back to your old desk. Maybe there's some more distance between you and your colleague that's nice you don't get the smell them smell bad anymore. It's great the other idea. This is number two which is becoming really popular because of that point that not. Everyone should have their own desk because not everyone's going every day. Is this idea. And i promise you. This is not my term in. It's horrible turam hot Hosking means that you don't have an assigned test you come in you get a new desk you leave you come in another day. You have a different desk and again it makes sense because not everyone is in on the same day. One of the people i spoke to for the story is the ceo of salesforce joanne. All saskia and she explained to me how they are moving to that model. Everyday you come in you find with your team if you want or you know wherever whoever you might be working with you grab a desk in there you go. And we have a crew that comes in at night and they reset the monitors and reset chairs reset standing desks. So the next day when you come in is completely clean completely sanitized. So we're already doing that will now. We're going to do that with most of our spaces and then the third one is really a big change and it's no desk. You have no desk. You're really just going to the office to collaborate with people to go to meetings and companies are doing. This dropbox is one of them. They are calling their their new spaces. Dropbox studios really call it in office anymore. And you just go in you have meetings you collaborate you bond with your colleagues and then you go home and you work from home most of the time. So let's talk about that working from home piece. We've all gotten pretty used to our at home. Setups how is this hybrid. Model going to change those. What are some of the new challenges. I think the big when we have to think about is that we're going to be bringing stuff back and forth and back and forth a lot laptops other. Techy wanted home. Or you want at. The office headphones microphones that kind of stuff. In some cases you won't bring it and you will have a situation at your office where you can keep some of it there but i think in some cases you really are going to want to drag that stuff back and forth because you might only have one of them or you like the thing that you use. Some companies are getting creative about how employees get the extra tech might need. Here's sales for ceo. Joanna subscale again. We provide any role that they need so they want an external keyboard they can have asked. They want mouse. They can have that they. Just get it out of the the vending machine. I need a keyboard and outcomes a keyboard. Did she say vending machines yes. She said vending machines and at salesforce. Unlike some other offices that we may work in. You don't get stale cookies or you. Don't get stale doritos. You've met computer peripherals and it's pretty simple. This is just a way for the it department not to be constantly responding to requests. That i need a new mouse or need a new headset. You're in the salesforce offices. They have vending machines. They're inside there. You go you swipe your card you get it and you don't pay for it. This is this is all free. Means like you're getting it from the department at another nice thing at salesforce to is that once you've gotten these peripherals they give you a cubby or locker to put your stuff in so you don't necessarily have to keep dragging back and forth your keyboard or your mouth your headset. You have it in your space at work. You got home. You have your home setup you come to work you grab your peripherals. You set them up. Got it okay. So that's the tech side of things but what about just communication. I mean we've been doing so much communication online. If some people are in the office some people are at home. How's that going to work. The biggest mistake you can make is thinking that you're going to go back to the office and you're not going to be video calling anymore. Don't think terry okay. And i spoke at length with the ceo of logitech about this name is bracket daryl and he knows a thing or two. About webcams impersonal. Webcams are going to continue to be important in enabling conference to superport. You've got Dynamic where it's hard to imagine going to the office for so many companies didn't have a lot of your neighbor rooms where you go by yourself. Do video call with few people do small group. It's hard to imagine video neighboring those rooms especially when it's so affordable. Obviously logitech is very excited about this because this is their business. Everyone has tried to buy a webcam from logitech in the last year. But other companies have said this to me to zoom. Told me this microsoft. Lots of companies webcams everywhere. Okay so we've talked about video calls but we're using technology for a lot of other communication that we would have done in person before right we've been using slack teams google products to collaborate. What's in store for us on that front. Yeah i mean you have to think about it as we're actually all remote workers now even when we're at the office because not everyone is going to be at the office with us. So that means we have to lean on things like slack and microsoft teams or whatever. Your company uses more to communicate because we're all going to be distributed and so slack in these companies are specifically trying to look at their products and change their products to help with this hybrid. Model slack is working on one feature. They told me about where you can send a video message to the entire team so instead of having to do constant video calls someone on your team can put out one short video clip to everyone in the in the channel and say something so everyone on the same page about it and again that cuts down on the friction of. Hey you said something in the office but the other person wasn't in the office and they missed what you said so. It's really important. The other thing that i'm excited about that they're coming out with is kind of like a audio drop in conference call thing that will let you create an audio call and have other other people jump in. I like to think of it as clubhouse but in slack google's doing a lot in this space to they've added some functionality to work space which includes all their collaboration tools like meat and doc slides etc. One feature. That i think is really important. Is this ability to set your status and let people know where you are ahead of. Google workspace aerosol. Tarot also gave me in scope on how they're planning to beef up. Google docs and this is something that we're going to be delivering this year and we started to introduce. How do you move from. The collaboration experienced made us famous. So the idea that we can all jump in and be the dueling curse into to say. Hey let's enrich that and go from like dueling pursers with names to faces and voices that live alongside the document. That's like a marriage of google meat and google docs right. Yeah i'm i'm pretty excited about it. I mean sometimes. I don't necessarily want my editor yelling at me. When he's editing a my script but at least you know everyone is right you. You know what. They're what they're working on and whether they are actually Looking at the documents. I think that's pretty cool. Said like a true boss. Qatari all right. So what about the home office side of things. How are our home. Office is going to be changing the going forward. I don't think they change much. I think if you've set up a really nice office you're going to keep working there and you're gonna wanna keep working there. Some of the companies and the large companies. I spoke to talked about continuing to make employees feel comfortable in their home offices which means nice stipend survived tech or furniture. Obviously the ceo of logitech is pretty excited that we're going to continue to improve our home
Writer Aliette de Bodard Discusses Matriarchies in Fiction
"The world as we know it is ruled by men but when it comes to fiction writers can choose what power structure they create and how they depicted despite the free rein this allows authors most recently replicate the patriarchy win authors. Do step outside the familiar. Societal structures and present us with matriarchies. What do we see. Aristotle condemned societies. The place women in paula knowing then is gonna caucases for threatening masculine supremacy since then. Men have often used representations of matriarchies as a way to demonstrate that women are incapable of or should not be trusted with holding power thankfully. The tide is turning early. Feminist speculative fiction writers like joanna russ explored all female worlds and pave the way for modern writers to explore more diverse power structures in action as something more than just projected male anxiety one. Such writer is elliott to bought out who. We are very pleased to welcome in joining us. In a discussion of matriarchies in speculative fiction. Thank you so much for joining us elliott. would you like to introduce yourself to ellis. Yes thank you so much for having me here. my name is edzard. I'm an award-winning writer. Of fantasy. and science fiction Most known for the universities which is a vietnamese inflicted space opera and my latest book is fire heart tiger which is a suffolk romantic. Fantasy said i guess you could call it too much rocky awesome and that is exactly why you are here to talk about matriarchies tonight. So first of all. I'll matriarchies only of used to us. As a way to deconstruct all paradise the patriarchy there other things right and they are They have historically existed Day are also very There's been a lot of investment in mostly trying to hide that they've existed or make it so that they were those terrible the stoke in places. Because you know god forbid that women ever been charged with anything But you can trust for instance The vietnamese society before the arrival of the chinese who who subsequently colonized vietnam was very probably some kind of much marcle and or much linear and you could see it in. You can't see anymore in the recorded history but you can see it in the fairy tales and the miss that our cost down where it's very clear. The women hold the power and that lineages passed through the mother instead of being passed through. The father is actually very interesting to look at the texts and go. You get those kinds of archaeological remains within the tax off the dragon. The dragon prince who marries the queen of the mountain. But she's the queen he's just the prince a to me. That's kind of really fascinating to see how it's been thoroughly arrays. Because the received wisdom was that those things just couldn't possibly exist.
Elsie Teaches Emma To Be An Internet Mom
"You're listening to beautiful podcasts. Emma recently shared that. She's expecting a baby this summer. So in this episode. I'm giving her a one on one on how to survive life as an internet mom online bullying in general overstepping in parenting on. The internet is always tough. But it's extra extra extra tough when you're a brand new mom so if you're at a similar stage in life to us this episode is for you and if not you can just listen and be glad that it's not you. Yeah yeah i was like how about we do an episode where you just give me advice about being a mom online. Because i just feel like. That's one area that People get royal judgy in mean on like even more than normal yet. I'm like ooh what's going on with this. Like i didn't become a mom till i can't remember enough. I was thirty four. Thirty five luscious say. I was in my mid thirties. When i became a mom so i had a whole decade of watching other people do online before i started so i knew it was gonna be rocky in that way. Yeah and it was everyone has boundaries whether you see them or not but even if you feel like you have pretty tight boundaries other people will not see it that way and it's it's just very challenging because a lot of the meanest comments you'll get our projections. It's not even really about something you did. It's about something that that person feels or that that person went through or that they're somehow trying to protect your child from so let's jump in. We've been blogging fourteen years so we definitely know how to deal with rude comments. Let's just put that out there. In the beginning it does get easier. We know how to delete in block. We know how to respond. We know how to learn from something. That is legitimate criticism. All of those things are normal to us for seasoned pros but when it comes to being a mom it does change it a little bit and I wanna give them a pep talk. That i never got because in some ways i wasn't prepared and i think especially in my first year of parenthood. I was a little bit more defensive than i am now. I wish that i wouldn't have been interesting. The internet tends to get really really invested in bloggers having babies and. I know that this already happening to emma. Even though it's like she's the most private person. I know a lot of bloggers. And she's probably like in the top two. Most private bloggers out of all of our group of friends. And it's still going to happen. So take notes emma. Here's your pop talk. Are you ready. Yes. let's do it. Yes and tell me and tell me what you think about each thing. Because i want to hear your thoughts to. I don't know parenting. I wanna say up front like the one of the reasons why we didn't make this parenting podcast and why we don't do. A lot of parenting advice is because that's not our job and we know that like i don't want it to be your job but i think in this one episode. I think it's worth it to just like go there Because we have learned some things and you're about to enter into a season where you're the most tired and the most stretched then that you've been in a long time and then to pile people being mean to you on top of that is just not fair. That's what i wish people. Well and i definitely feel like When people have made comments or criticism of my job which is like pudding In craps and things like that on the internet so if someone's like this recipe sucks. I'm like well you know this. I m putting this out there as a part of my career. Cookbook out. I you know have a. That's a big part of what i do on our blog. I feel a lot more like okay. This is what i'm choosing. But i don't really consider being a mom part of my career. I consider it something that i've always wanted to do. And i'm sure. I will want to share photos of my child and and myself being pregnant and things like that here and there but i don't really think of it as this is a career move. I just think of it as oh my mom's going to want to see this i'll post. Yeah okay well. It's harder when it's like that on that. No i have to skip ahead to point number five. Just read too early because it relates to what you're saying it says okay even if you make zero dollars from your kid never put them in and at et cetera. People will still call your mom blogger so just like let it happen. I was in a magazine article in. I think like people last year where they were calling me a mom blogger and it also had like clear and joanna from the home edit. They're definitely not mom bloggers either and then it had us with like you know some of the people who actually are mom workers so i feel like just having a kid in some people's minds makes you in the category of mom blogger. But i do think it's own business that the people who choose to do that they make these choices they make these big boundaries. They make these sacrifices. None of those things are we doing. And we're not even trying to enter into that category. It just gets muddy and other people's minds. Yeah okay so my first piece of advice and this is the best advice anyone ever gave to me. Before i became a mom and i think it's the most important parenting advice you can have is that you have to choose to listen to your instincts over everything so especially being a mama will want to give you a lot of advice from everything from you. Know your car seat choice to your education choices. You know if you ever open up about anything personal or any kind of struggle with your kid. The advice you'll get will be overwhelming and massive but your inner voice is already telling you at least for me every point in my parenting journey. My instincts have told me what to do. And i think that you can really trust them. They're there for a reason and they're really the biggest thing that you don't wanna ignore to now that makes sense. Yeah i'd i didn't read a ton of parenting books i've talked before about. I love the danish way of parenting. I and i did read a couple of books about adoption when we were first opting but reading like a ton a parenting books. I don't think is necessary. I think you have to listen to your own. Inner voice and it's good also to get like a core group of other moms who have some stuff in common with. You can listen to them. Like i usually ask my best friend a couple questions a year. You know or ask other moms. Who are bloggers laura. You know like ask her things whenever it has to do with like you know blogger specific stuff so
Navigating These Troubled Times with Mary DeMuth
"Well hey there my friends. I am just so honored that you chose to tune in to the podcast today. One of my favorite things about this format is that we get to talk about important topics with people who have a lot of wisdom and today is no exception in fact. I'll tell you what. I've really been looking forward to talking to mary booth because she has insight into some of the hot topics that that honestly it's hard to have conversations around and today we're gonna talk about the importance of prayer and living biblically knowing the word of god so that it shapes our lives but then we navigate the emotionally charged often deeply divided world in which we live even in the church. I love it when god brings people across your path that you've admired from a distance but you get to meet in person and you think oh my word. They're even cooler than i thought. And mary demuth you or one of those people i just so appreciate your heart for jesus your generosity to people in your willingness to speak truth god's truth when sometimes it's difficult to here and We're going to be kind of delving into that but we're also going to be talking about your new book. Pray every day. But there's so many things i can't wait to talk to you about mary. Demuth welcome to the living room. Hey it is great to be in your living room in its cozy here. I love it. I love it your cyber living room exactly kind of a virtual living room where you located at mary. I'm in north texas near dallas awesome awesome. And i'm so we're just almost next door neighbors. I'm in. i'm just above you in montana. So several thousand miles away down the lane. That's right that's right will marry has just has had a voice in the christian women Round for so many years author of forty two books and her newest one is pray every day. which is i. Am i right to assume that that kind of came out of the your podcast. It did exactly I my podcast is almost three years old now and it's a very simple format. I read scripture. And then i pray it's about five minutes long And what prairie day is is one of the things i wanted to do is explore the actual prayers of the bible and This is a ninety day devotional. There's a little more than ninety prayers in the bible. Not much more. And so it was really fun to add. Never really seen that explored before says really fun to explore. What are the verse of the bible. And then what does that mean for me. And how do. I move forward in prayer. And what do i. What can i learn about prayer every single day for ninety days. That may change my prayer life. That's so beautiful it's a. It's a lovely book in so approachable. What do you think you know as you spent that time looking at the of the bible. What were some of the main things you learned about prayer. Well i think there's so many different types of prayers and one of the ones that i really appreciate is the lament psalms These are prayers of lament and they go through a very specific format And the fun thing about in a lament psalms it starts with y y y all this bad stuff happening and then it ends with reminding ourselves of the goodness of god. And that's been a really nice pattern for me to follow particularly when the world fell apart We can lament their scriptural foundation for doing that. It's okay to say. I don't understand it's okay to say where are you got. This is all part of the prayer life that we can have. That's so beautiful. You really do love that about the lord that he doesn't ask us to tidy up our prayers before we come but to pour out our hearts. And i i think sometimes we're afraid to be honest about where we're at why. Why do you think that is well logically. It doesn't make any sense. Because if god is omniscient he already knows and so why would we try to hide it from him. It's not gonna work. But i think we don't do it because we're afraid and i also think we don't really understand the relational aspect of god prayer is not a transactional thing. It's actually a relational thing. And so god is always pursuing us in relationship and when we pray were simply having a conversation with him and when we don't pray then we are not having a conversation with him so it's important that we just. He knows it all ready. And we're not gonna take them by surprise by telling them. This really hurts. This is confusing to me and the reason that we do it and the reason god wants us to do it is that he wants to be with us in relationship when we are going through stress and trauma. Yeah i and. I think that's a thing that we forget is is that he really is god with us and for me. You know god's just kind of doing something new in my prayer life that. I've actually been praying for years and it's that that it would become more real and more vibrant in one of the simple little things that has changed. Prayer from me is to consciously come into his presence you know. Sometimes i just pull out my prayer. I do my prayer. I do everything. I read my bible and then you know god bless dinner and all of that and i don't really realize the privilege that i've been given and we've been given to come into the very throne room of heaven. How has praying every day. Change that aspect for you. I think it's been more of even though god is holy holy holy and i i remember him such. There's a a deeper camaraderie. That comes the more i prayer. Pray and the more. I understand that this is real and like you said just imagining it or thinking of it is. This is a privilege and this is real. And i'm in god's presence right now and he has that word with is really powerful. We just jumped off of a season of Of christmas and advent and that word whisk emmanuel god with us is such a powerful word. And i think we lost a little bit of that. It's not about us trying to perform christian louis. It's about us being disciple by jesus.
Defining Moments: Stepping Outside of Your Comfort Zone
"We're looking at those moments. When we are forced to grow by stepping up to me to challenge and stepping outside of our comfort zone these are moments when our character can be tested and challenged to do something that is difficult and uncomfortable. These are defining moments in which god will challenge you and make you uncomfortable sometimes even allowing your discomfort. Why is that. Why would he do that to related reasons number one. You're never uncomfortable. You will never grow just as you only burn fat or grow muscle through the discomfort of working out. You cannot grow emotionally spiritually or intellectually without getting uncomfortable. God knows this. And so god who is provident will allow situations in our lives that lead to our discomfort. This leads to the second reason. God allows us to be uncomfortable. Our character is essential to who we are if we're not actively developing her character sometimes in his mercy and love. God helps us out. We see this clearly played out in the story of jonah. Perhaps you remember jonah and the whale. The book of jonah is a short book in the bible. You can read the whole thing in about fifteen minutes. I encourage you to do so for those of you. Who hear the story of a man in the belly of a whale and find it too fantastic to believe it's helpful to note that many scripture scholars see the book of jona as an allegory. Much like jesus's parables are allegories. The bible is composed of many types of literature. There is history. There is poetry and allegories allegories convey meaning through symbols symbolic and symbolic events. The catholic church believes the bible is inherent in everything. It intends to teach. The bible does not intend to teach that a person can be swallowed by a whale and survive et cetera which may or may not be so it does intend to teach us through this story that no matter how hard joan is tries not to do god's will through struggle in prayer jona finds himself in-in of where god wanted him today. Our passage from jonas started with the word of the lord came to joan a second time which begs the question when it was the first time. Well the first time. God spoke to jona. He ran away. God wants to grow joan as a prophet a leader. After god's own heart a heart full of mercy and compassion as opposed to jonas heart. Joan was hard hearted and judgmental. God told jones to do something that was outside his comfort zone in order to help him grow. Joanna did not want to do it. In fact jona got on a boat and went in the exact opposite direction from where god wanted him when he was sailing in the opposite direction of storm. Hit the boat. Geno was thrown overboard the ship and that's when he was swallowed by the whale. Whatever you think of the story of the whale. The truth of the story is obvious when we resist. God's will and insist on our own way we can end up in some pretty dumb places. Jona finally turns to prayer which is typical for many of us. We turn to prayer as a last resort joan appraise a beautiful prayer. You can find in the second chapter of the book of jonah in response to that prayer. God rescues him and saves him and gives him a second chance to grow. This is good news. Even if you have failed in the past to meet a challenge and grow god will give you other moments other opportunities to step up to the challenge of growing your character. In fact god might keep giving you those moments over and over again until you decide to grow and learn the lesson. He wants to teach you. There will be perhaps different circumstances. Different conditions different people but the same opportunity for growth. The story of jonah is a story of second chances. God gave joan a second chance and he wants jona to do the same for others. By speaking to the people of nevada. On god's behalf
"joanna" Discussed on The Living Room with Joanna Weaver
"There's forgiveness as a way focus. We then have our words the idea of having less and then christ in us. Yeah i love. You also mentioned the way of forgiveness that we you know. We're not gonna have rest if we don't have right relationships one of the ways that i'd like just to have you kind of drill down is that i way the way of weakness because i think that seems so counter. Intuitive were so afraid of weakness and yet here we are in the middle of a global pandemic and so much has been taken out of our hands. A lot of us have more time. We've been forced to rest in yet. Were ending up feeling restless. How do we embrace the weakest those week places those week times in and really find the rest that god has in it for us. It's a great question. Joanna because studies show that fifty seven percent of us are anxious than sixty five percent of us are more stressed. The reality is that we're doing more. We're having to handle more coming at us with you. Know corona virus on social media. it's an onslaught of information all the time in in biblical times. They didn't really have these sort of social media. opinions and commentaries. Like we have today so it's actually really huge but actually admitting our weakness creates room for god's strength to come in and i just wanna tell a little story because i disliked the story i had a bunch of girls over to my house and i had this beautiful spread of food. I had flowers out on the table. I had candle set out. I'm like this is going to be a great time. There was that one issue. Which was this table that we had in our living room. And it had like all these marker marks all over for my kids. I just one day just was like i saw that they had already made marks on. I'm website. just go for it. Kids just draw over it. You know it was this moment of freedom. I just go for it but so i did cover it with the tablecloth but i only had four chairs and the chairs were just as bad looking as the table and so when my girlfriends came over there was probably about eight of them. They're like where do we sit kelly for lunch. Like they were just standing there with their plates looking around. I'm like you know sometimes. Denial doesn't make the problem. Go away when you look at it again. So we kind of like just didn't know what to do and i finally said you know why like. Let's just sit on the floor and so here we are this amazing time together. And mia just growls. We just sat on the ground and the conversation that started to happen from that place. Joanna was amazing. I mean the women were looking at me and they were saying kelly. Thank you for just like having a sit down on the floor. There's something so humble this and it's showing us that we can invite people into our imperfect tomes like one. I'm going to have people over to my house. Now because of this at the beginning this connecting point of saying. Hey this weakness isn't a bad thing. But our hearts were connected to each other and this reality of imperfect nece was raised and there was a power that came fourth in a freedom and we just had the best time sitting on that floor together so a lot of times. The things that were trying to hide from others are the exact things that are going to connect us to others. In fact studies have shown that self disclosure and admitting things going on inside of us actually increases trust increases learning with others. And so the thing that we think is going to keep others from is actually what draws them to us and that ultimately connection with others is a huge point of rest when it is sourced from authenticity and true heart connection as you and i note. Yeah exactly exactly well because exhausting wearing masks you know. It's exhausting playing a part into be able to be real to be able to be week. I think that that's so powerful. Because also i think it allows us to get honest with god and in when we're able to be honest with god then we're able to tap into his strength rather than the slide that we have to have it altogether on our own a love. I love this verse. Matthew five three in the message version. I love a pay. It says you're blessed when you are at the end of your rope with less of you. There is more of god and his rule. I mean how emerging is that verse. That is so beautiful less of us. I i have thought that so often. I'm like lord. If i could just get over me while it would be so frene because i think so many times. Were you know if we're not trying to earn other people's approval were subconsciously. Trying to earn god's and you and i have talked a lot about that just that striving versus abiding and here you are releasing a book in the middle of a pandemic and it can be sort of like ono what i gotta make something happen. But god's been doing something new in your what is. What is it feeling like. Inside on my goodness joanna. The lord has not given me permission to go about doing the work that i normally did. I mean i would be very very hard worker but imagine that he has a plan. He doesn't want me to be a hypocrite. One rest. he's like kelly receive arrest so i've been obedient but i think in that space. What i realized is you know in the when where i work. I get my results. But where god works and what. I worked through my own work. I have to maintain through my own work so Yeah there's this beautiful place of surrender and just saying okay. God this is your message. You wrote it. I listen to your heart is. I wrote this book. I know it's from you. It's four you it's by you. It's through years or go ahead and reach the people you wanna reach with it and do what you wanna do and Can i just tell you. Joanna i feel so free. I m praying with my husband for some different things. He has going on them. Much more attentive to my kids and non edge. Because i'm trying to do all this stuff and then acted quickly transition to being mom. I m content inside my heart. I m connected with god through prayer. I'm overflowing in ministry. I cannot tell you what a soul difference it's made in my life. So god that's really a miracle of god. Says he did it. It is we wanna be responsible people. And i think that's sometimes why we struggle for rest. You know when when when the bible tells us so clearly that that the seventh day we are to rest that the sabbath is a gift to us and yet. I think we're so afraid. How can i do that. How can i take sunday off. Or whatever day is you're using as your sabbath. Because what. If i don't get everything done and i wonder how many times fear is the enemy of rest in our lives. Would you yet. Well i wanna just something coming on my heart right. Now that i want to explain a lot of us might not even realize that we need rest You know we can have operated in the ways we've operated for so long that we don't even.

"Hey there my sweet sweet fran. Kelly larry welcome to the living room. Hey joanna i'm so happy to be chilling on the couch with you from a distance but out together and i'm really happy to be here today. I'm telling you what we're we're abiding by all the social distancing what is it about two three thousand miles. We're snoopers kaushal distance masks but we are still distance right. Those you're in florida right. We knew i'm actually out carolina now. But i'm still south. You're very south than i'm in montana. So yes but you know what i love most about you is it feels like every time we talk. It just feels like you're right there in the room with me i just. I'm so grateful for your friendship. My friend. I know that. I'm not alone in loving you. Joanna i if we had an audience. Have everybody clapped for joanna. We all love in that includes <hes>. You're touching currier. You're such her well. I couldn't wait to get you on. Because i'm holding your beautiful new book in my hand. Rest now seven ways to say no set boundaries and sees joy and we. We have been kind of journeying together. You've been holding my hand as i walk through my book project and <hes>. In here all of a sudden is this gorgeous book that guide just birth through you in so many ways and so it's been fun to have kind of a little bit of a front row seat but what really inspired you to write this book. Rest now you know joanna earlier part of my life <unk>. Pre-college i was the oldest is six kids and i had this really super over responsible personality where i thought i was mother to everyone and needed to keep my family together and make sure everyone went the right way and just manage everyone's world and so <hes>. It almost felt like wasn't going to be okay. Unless i was managing it and i actually developed eating disorder because it was trying to be everything to everyone and ultimately i did not know who i was. I didn't even like myself. I lost myself through this whole mentality. That's kind of the intensive rest over time. I found jesus praise god. I was healed eating disorder but the flip side of the coin. I had these time periods. Where i was like going to be with god. I'm just going to sit with him and do nothing. And then i was like okay. Wait a minute this is not rest either. Like i didn't have peace. Like what is this thing all about. you know. So the book about rest now is really a journey into spirit led rest. And it's about connecting to the heart of god right when we think about the vine being connected to the vine abiding through christ it's how to activate that kind of life style on the daily basis and this is my story. I love that. I love that because you the reality is we are people with responsibilities and god has made us like that in fact. He says that he's created us to do good works in yet. Boy it is so easy to live from that place of striving rather than abiding. What what would you say is probably the biggest lesson that you've learned about the rest that god wants to give us you know. I think one of the worst things in life is to be anyone other than who god created you to be and for a large portion of my life. I felt i had to work hard to get things or to be more to show myself. You know a better performer. Were more beautiful or having that perfect house and the beauty of rest. Is it really strips. Back the curtain on a lot of bats striving an in that place of rest as i sit with god and understand his heart. I can see man. He love me. For what i do. He loves me for who. I am in christ and when you can realize how powerfully loved you are in christ and who you are. In christ you begin to uncover the reality and the power and the identity of who you are. There's almost nothing that can stop your full of life your content your keys. That's really the fullness knowing who god created you to be and then you can take that out and love people authentically versus needing something from them like i need. I need you need me. I want you to want me. And you'll that from people and that doesn't feel like law that feels like something operating from another realm but rest is the recovery of self that healing of self through the biblical truths of christ when we invite him in

"And they gave me a publishing contract like on the call and five months later had a book and that never ever happens like anyone is tried to write a book. This is never how it goes down. I find out later. You should never write a book and five months. But you know you're you don't know you sign up and say and so But just isn't encouragement. That like god does know those things and it really isn't a to us to do it. It's more like it's more like he said there's a surprise coming Not you better do this right. And i think sometimes it's easy to feel like especially those of us who are high-performers or we like to get things done or we know we're productive that it's easiest for us to feel like god's biggest surprises that he's like whispered in our ear that something great is coming. Suddenly we feel the burden or the pressure to make it happen and that if we don't he'll be disappointed in that calling is somehow up to us to fulfill rather than up to us to enjoy as got the doors and we get to just faithfully walk through it and see what he's going to do so i think that's my final thought is to just don't stress about it like even if you mess it up. Let's say you blow the interview with whoever is going to give you the whatever even if you totally mess it up he's still gonna bring it to you because when he promises something it's going to happen and whatever it's supposed to be we'll be in his perfect timing amen. Beautiful people okay. I'll pray for us. God you so much for today. Thank you for joanna and jessica and for all the Amazing people listening. God i thank you that you love so much that you know us intimately that you care every detail of our lives that you not only know the desires of our hearts god's but you've actually put those desires in assets how much you know us and you're such a good and loving and trust full father that you're not going to give us something and then or tell us that something is coming and then.

"My he wanted and so. I don't think that we need only think of hospitality with regards to our own four walls. I think it's so much bigger than that. It's living a life of welcome wherever you are opening your heart and if you can opening your home as well yeah yeah yeah. I've always seen it as just kind of that open armed. Welcome and we can't do that even anymore. It's so hard to being able to hug or shake hands and But but it. There is something about having that posture of welcome. How i from me. I've always just a pastor's wife so you know you would think with the resume that hospitality should just come easy. And i had a mother who was amazing at hospitality even though she worked fulltime job My memories are so full of our house. You know not only having people over for dinner but literally. My parents opening their homes for people who needed a place to live for a while. We used to call it gustafsen home for wayward boys and girls. I love that and there was just this open armed like we knew if someone needed a place to say even today even though my parents are much older i know that if someone really needs somewhere to stay that my parents have an extra room and would be happy to have them and so that spin just a part of their life which i would just imagine. You should have become part of my dna. But it doesn't come as easy to think that this that hospitality in that open armed approach to life. Is that a a personality type or a spiritual gift or something that we all need to cultivate. Why definitely think certain personalities tend to have an easier. Go of it. I definitely think it is a spiritual gift however not off the hook if we don't have the personality or we don't have the spiritual gift of hospitality because you know in the bible. We are told to practice hospitality. And when you look into the greek rendering of the word it's written as a command. It's not a suggestion. It's not a a sentence that best translated now. If you decide to offer has to do it this way you know. We are all told the practice hospitality and so. I don't think that it's something that we're exempt from. However i think if we can learn to have the right perspective about it it can be something that all of us can do. Because what's happened. Joanna is that the world has tainted what we think of hospitality. We look at what. The world says entertaining. Is you know which is having people to impress them with your fancy stuff in your gourmet food big house and all of those things we see on. Hgtv and i'm not knocking hdtv right. I love watching it. I'll ride but we need to learn to use those decorating websites those fixer upper shows. And all that as a resource rather than try to mimic them the lifestyle. And think that if we don't have gourmet food and a lovely redecorated house than we can't practice hospitality entertaining. What the world entertaining puts the emphasis on you in impressing others..

"Well i am so happy to have caring eamon with today. She's in new york times bestselling author speaker with <unk> thirty ministries she writes for encouragement today and has an online devotional that reaches over four million women daley she's authored fifteen bucks and i'm really excited to talk about your newest book. Karen reachout gather in. Can you kind of tell us what brought you to this book. And what's the what's the heart behind it. Sure and thanks so much for having me. It's just great to be with you today. Well i grew up in a home. I had a mom who was just so giving and so loving but had a very different personality than me. She's pretty quiet and shy. And you know. I'm one of these people. That's at the party with lamp shade on my head and i have always talking <hes>. In so i didn't the same kind of personality that she had. But there was one aspect of her behavior that i just really wanted to emulate and that was the fact that she had this philosophy in life. That if you ever felt like things weren't going your way and your circumstances had you down that you always need to remember that. There's somebody out there. Has it worse off than you. So go find that person and make their day and in some strange way. It makes sure as well and i just saw her live this out. I just saw her a very others. Centered person a very welcoming person. And as i grew up in became a christian as a teenager. I saw that my goodness she got this from the bible. You know she was a believer and i i saw that. That's how the lord calls us to live to not be so self-focused always thinking what's in it for me but to be somebody who tries to reach out in and tries to look for that person and notice that person who leased expects to be seen <hes>. Wow that's so powerful and so needed in this time. i think maybe it's personality taibbi. It's just the time we're in but it's just so easy to become self focused. I don't think we mean to but it's just like it's easy to believe that the world revolves around us. Has it come naturally to you to be other centered. Sometimes it has. I would honestly say with others outside my family it acts. I'm pretty good at reaching out to others and putting others first and you know trying to keep them happy or make them happy and make them feel that sometimes within my four walls of a little more difficult you know. I think that we all know. Sometimes family brings out the worst us and sometimes i wonder if that's just because you know our friends and coworkers neighbors you know. They have a choice whether or not they want to hang around us or whether or not. They're gonna like us that our family have no choice right so sometimes we let our bad behavior just kind of bubble up to the surface and we bent on them. Because you know they're not going anywhere they're stuck with us right so i would say it comes pretty naturally with other people outside my home but i have to work on a little more with people inside my home. That's where i tend to be more selfish. Yeah well and we're living in this world right now where you know. I think with covid and everything. We're not able to gather and we've been. I wonder sometimes we were so busy beforehand that maybe we didn't have time together. What are you hearing from people when it comes to this idea of connecting in a deeper way and becoming others focused. I think covid has really changed. Things i know before. It seems like sometimes we would gross about hamanaka gotta go to that meeting church. You know i've got to go to another soccer game. You know even though my child rather gets in the game. He kinda rides the bench. But i've gotta go and be the good mom and we kinda groused about those impersonal things and we tended to gravitate more to our phones. You know we get addicted to our phones and we have them always with us in in our pocket and we can let them easily divert us from the real life happening in front of our faces. But i think in a weird way for me and for people that i'm close to. It's kind of switch things now. We're kind of tired of screens. Were tired of being on zoom meetings. We're tired of only getting you know our human interaction through the face of our phone or over screen as we work at home or whatever and now we're kind of craving those in person meetings we we had. I'm in michigan and michigan has opened. I think much more slowly than a lot of the rest of the country but we did have <hes>. Some friends over outdoors. Socially distanced had our masks on came over for just a little cookout. And i remember when they last just crying thinking what a blessing that was to hang out with our friends and to talk to them to see them face to face even though it was in our backyard and we had our lawn chairs kind of spread out from each other. But i used to take that for granted. And when i had another invitation to a high school graduation had already been to seven the ear. I'm like i don't wanna go. I'm tired of people and now yeah. I missing people. Missing people sell its <unk>. Flip-flopped a little bit the the in person interaction and the the screen time or the screen interaction touching screens. I think we're spending so much time now touching screens that we miss actually touching lives.

"Love you said he'd get so mad so mad he'd be like, you can't say that an argument looks like well I do and after several years. As in I love yous and exchanges like that and prayers offered. I think you started a wonder where my Hope was coming from and we're that was coming from at all and off again. It's like so cheap to summarize it but to put words to the holy spirit is just impossible to do but I will try my best. That is that this Matrix of relationships and exposure to the scripture. Like God's word never returns void and his own he's a physician and his very scientifically minded his own Deep dive into Jesus as Messiah led him to believe and I just like Joanna can't even see the words about getting. I still to this day. I am like Lord nothing is impossible for you because truly my husband is the last person. He told me to believe in God like didn't shut off. Out of it. I will give me back to one day. He said to me Laura I will never believe in Jesus. Wow and again yet, but God can do impossible things and in all of that. He not only brought our a to Faith, but he over time it was not overnight. I don't ever want people to think these things can happen overnight. Even though God is amazing if he can do things like that, but for us it took several years and wise counsel and being around other couples to heal the pain in our marriage even coming up to that point of having a shared Faith now off there was infidelity in our marriage and so many words that just really stuck and it was a constant dying to ourselves process and life and when you have the Holy Spirit in you that will always bring you back to hey, you know what you have been forgiven of so much. I think you can forgive that other person and phone number. Pretty sure I've thought that a thousand times in my life as it relates to my marriage and I'm sure already.

"To find out what that new name is And sometimes God will speak to us through word about. This is how I see you. I call you a Saint. I call you right. Just call you forgiven. I call you clean but those new names are woven throughout scripture and are available to us to start living out of and makes a difference. When you start living out of your name it makes a difference with how you relate to God and with how you relate to others but I would say even in the Church and I love the church. Maybe we've even created groups around labels you know maybe lead is the single parent group and so we're almost reinforced. Seen some of these labels that That's not how God sees people you know. God doesn't see a single mom as just a single mom. Guide has Plans for that woman. God wants to provide for that woman God will provide for that woman and her children and so. I wonder how we could do a better job in the church recognized in the new names that God wants to give people instead of kind of living out of these labels that I think fall short of who God calls us to be. Yeah yeah well I think a lot of those labels you know at least for me. I have been self inflicted and they come out of what I feel what I witnessed what I am not rather than what who I am and Christ and what I can become in Christ. Annetta love that you. You know that you mentioned that. God named them before or it came true he renamed Abram and Sarai. He gave them a new name beforehand. How how do we? How do we let go of those old labels and begin to pick up the labels as you mentioned so many beautiful ones those new labels that God says about us? I'm glad you asked the question because I think It's work that not all of us want to do but I think We've gotta identify what those labels are and we've just we've got identify. Maybe share them with somebody. Share them with a trusted person or share them with your spouse or share them with a pastor. You know I believed this about myself. I remember living with a family when I was going through the severe stocking years and I just felt so orphaned by God. I felt so forgotten I felt benched. I felt like he was never gonNA use me again. I felt unloved and I remember. They would try to pull that out of you. What are you feeling right now? What are you believing about yourself? Because again those false beliefs become belief systems and And so I needed the help of others to identify those labels and to help pull MIATA that help. See the truth that I was being provided for even though I I wanted that to mean the stocking stopped I was being provided for by these families leading me live with them so I was safe But we've got it you know at the end of each chapter. I have a list of labels and a list of new names because I think it's so foreign for us to self reflect over. What are we believing versus? God Save we are and I hope that that's just a good starting point for the reader to say I'm GonNa Circle these ones like this is what I'm believing about myself. Maybe even subconsciously believed that you weren't enough for twenty years Or maybe you're in a hard marriage and that hard marriage is hard to live through. And so if you're in a hard marriage what do you believe in about yourself as a result and do you believe that? God is still with you and that God still loves you that you still have his favor but I would say it takes It takes intention analogy. It's not just going to happen. You identify these labels and start living out of your new name and and most the time we will need help living and believing out of cod says we really are and that's the beauty of the church and the body of crisis that we don't we're not called to live out of these things alone we we need reminders and we need help and there's no shame in that. Yeah Yeah I know I've had relating to a lot of internal work. God's just Kinda brought some things to the surface You know the label that I've kind of put myself the weakest link you know that is I know my inadequacies and so I know God wants to use me but sometimes I believe that will. I'm not enough I'm either I'm not enough or I'm just too much. Yeah and both of those are lies and I think what's so wonderful is when we just open our heart to the light of the Holy Spirit. We don't have to go digging. And we don't have to go trying to find those allies we can just invite the Holy Spirit to reveal any only reveals so he can heal in so when God does put his finger on those spots and those lies we we kind of pushed back because we really do believe they're true. I mean I I look at my track record and I go wolves. Yeah yeah I I have failed before so here I am feeling again. I must be a failure and causes no Joanna. This is my process that I'm working in you and you look at it as a big mistake and as something really wrong. I look at it as an opportunity to meet you in the middle of your pain. Meet you in the middle of your inadequacy and I think so often. Were pushing that away. We're pushing it away. Where saying I can't I I don't deserve that kind of grace so we don't accept that kind of grace and I've I'm just trying to learn how to stop living by what I feel and start living Bo. What God says to me how you know really interesting that in the space between your first book and your Second Book you actually did get a new name. Tell us a little bit about that. You know let me first. If that's okay. I just want to touch on the label that you struggle with the Weakest Link. I would never in a million years guests at. That's a label that you struggle west. So thank you for Boise. Map At something happens when you waste the label that you believed in I realized as I'm stepping into launching this next book a. I've been struggling with that myself and I couldn't even pinpoint it but why did I feel inadequate to do different? Podcast why do I feel like I wish I had more years with this content before a taught on it and I just? I don't know if I'm equipped for this. And so there's something that happens when you share Your Label. It allows somebody else to see where they're believing ally or they're believing a label and you're Satan is just not create. The enemy is just not creative so he is lying to all of us on many times. It's in a similar way. And so that brings freedom Joanna when you just shared label that you're struggling with. That helped me pinpoint what? I've been struggling with this week this very week. And that's how the body of Christ and sisters can operate to help one another So I I wanted to say that. I hope that's okay. I'm being you not cool. And then guess just as far as my new name physically actually not just spiritually. Did I get a new name but I got a new physical name as I was going to. Really difficult years.

"Those those crumbles still are GonNa come in days. We're tired we don't feel good things aren't going that way And it is just a reminder that okay we don't need to start from the beginning of the conversation we you kind of just pick up as the little reminders encouraging each other and it's not like jumping on them when they grumble like we do this book you can never grow again. This is reminding into them. We've been working on this and You know we need to pull out that scripture again or whatever so it's just a continual reminder and I think that's it's going to be that way for the rest of allies like it's never going to be like we've conquered this you know we've ever come this bet it's that reminder that yes we still prone to rumble. We stop rumbling. Sooner we tuned turn to God sooner and I think that is a wonderful results. I love it I love it. Well what would you see that Atma who is in the middle of it right now or or maybe or maybe. It's that grandma who is raising her grandchildren and they've come with a whole bunch of baggage and she finds her normal cool. Just losing it all the time. What what would you you encourage them today? What's one place? They could start now so one of the things that helped me the most Help change the most was was to point out not just when the kids are grumbling but point out when they do say thank you or when they're doing something right I think so many times times's so easy to point out the negative and said the positive and so I think the biggest change came when my kids would be doing their chores and instead of me going in there and you forgot here unit vacuum over here you do this better when I went in there and said wow. You're really doing a good job wiping out the sink. I could really see that you were taking taking pride in that and You know that you are maturing and it could be the respite kitchen. It's a mess. They're like wiping at the state and then all of a sudden it's like. Oh Oh wait MOMS noticing and One of my daughters. I remember telling her what a great job she has been wiping off the counter in one little spot and all of a sudden she's like Oh and she ended up moving everything off counters wiping everything down to in a really good job because I pause and I noticed her and I thanked her and I showed her that I appreciated what she did instead of. Just myself grumbling or saying hey you need to do a better job here and I think whether you have a two year old or you have a fifteen eighteen year old. Just noticed something that they're doing right and praise them for thank them for it and it's amazing that kids just eat that up and they want that they want. We know that people are paying attention that they are appreciated for what they do So I would say if you take one thing away from that just started doing that with your kids and I think you will notice a change in attitudes. I love it. I've actually been doing that with myself catching myself. I self doing not grumbling or getting myself when I don't give in to frustration and just job Joanna uh-huh and I know that you held your time. Craig Yeah Yeah I think I think sometimes we go there. I did it again. I'm just I'm just just a grumbler and and I've just asked the Laurie I don't. I don't want frustration to be my constant fault. You know and for me like pausing as you talked about giving myself grace when I mess up Catching myself just you. You know I may feel it. I may think it made some words can slip out but I can stop myself in the process before I let it go on and on. Are there any any little tips. You found for yourself with grumbling well and I think one thing for me because we have so many people in this house is just tell myself like I think huges need at three minute break you know and so I just I love how you said grace. 'cause that God spoke to me over and over again like give yourself grace and I will just tell my kids kids. I'll be back in because we home school. I mean they're around me all the time. Unlike Mommy just needs I'll say three minutes or five minutes and I'll just go in my room lamb. I bed take some deep breaths like because I mean honestly there are sometimes that there are things that no-one would fault me for grumbling about the hard stuff and the reface hard stuff as parents and it's people and just realizing like God. I'm coming to you. I just need your strength right now. I did you see your piece. I just need a big for us. I just needed a relaxed moment. I think it is when we're always busy. Always moving always doing this things. We don't take time to connect with God and yes. I love my quiet time in the morning. Sometimes I will just pull away a pull up my Bible APP and just look through some verses and just give myself like okay. I just need this break break from the kids or for whatever and just give myself that grace take a minute and income before God and he is so faithful in those moments even if it's just five minutes like I just feel like a with me I can handle whatever's going on and Yes I like grumbling or yes. There's maybe something that No one would follow me for grumbling about which just turning it over to him like it's yours. I know that you're here and I I give this to you. And that makes such a huge difference in probably like every day of my life like every day in my life because no like mom needs five minutes and even tell them don't open the door. MOM needs five minutes. It's a daily thing around here. I love it well. It's it's that time out. That isn't a punishment but it's a gift to just get our hearts right before the Lord in and invite him into the equation. I just love it if you would pray for those ladies out there you know. Some of them don't have kids but the they've just found that their their attitude to just pretty much horrible right now and they need the Lord's help. I think all of us no matter what season. We're in what what kind of life we have I think this whole issue of grumbling and complaining is a big one so I just love to have you closed this in prayer. Sure absolutely dear God.

"To tune in each week to new episodes. I can even scroll and find topics that speak to my heart. And so as. I really thought about what I wanted. This new podcast to be like, I keep that in mind because you know, what all of us needing courage now, and then life can get really crazy. And even though we have a heart to know Jesus sometimes that desire can kind of get shoved to the side. And so I began to think in imagine what what would it be like to interview different guests and have them share tips and tools for a growing our walk with God and living a life that really glorifies him. But also I wanted to do solo shows because to be honest, I I feel that God's just taught me so much as I've made my heart available to him as I've allowed him to put his finger on things in my life. And challenge me he's released grace to change me as I've simply agreed with the diagnosis over time. He's proud secure. And so I'm excited to show. Share topics like hammering out forgiveness in in what it means to have intimacy with God in the business of life. So that's going to be a lot of what we do. You might be wondering. Well, I really have no idea who you are Joanna. We'll let me tell you. First of all, I am a girl a hick from the sticks. I'm Joanna from Montana, but I was born and raised here on my husband, and I are blessed to pastor a church here and and have been in full time ministry for over three decades, which makes me feel really really old. We are parents to three amazing children. Just finally had my first grand babies in their incredible. I'll probably be talking about them. But you know, what the thing I'm most passionate about is Jesus. I love him. He has become so real to me, and I can't wait to have him become your best friend as well. Also, I left the church. I'm crazy about the church. I've leave it's God's best idea for the world. And I'm looking forward for to share tips for leading and loving and living more like Jesus in all of the different areas of our lives. You know, as I was thinking about this podcast and doing research on how to start one everybody said that you needed to niche down or niche down or nice down or whatever it is that where it is a that. I needed just kinda come down to. One thing that I was going to focus on for this podcast between honest. I'm not a one focus kind of girl. I I'm a multi passionate woman. I am a mom, and I wanna be the vest mama can be I m a wife, and I want to loving supportive wife. I'm a pastor's wife, and I wanna learn how to lead women and lead our church to the best of my Valle villages. So so I can't just choose one topic. And I hope you'll be okay with that. Because I kind of sneaking suspicion that you're not a one dimensional girl either that you wear many hats in sight help that this podcast will be a place where you're inspired, you're encouraged, but that you also go away with tools for for living in loving and leading like Jesus that you can actually apply to your every day life..
