We did They Live. I have another movie coming this Monday, Here Are Your Hints, 1993, lost more money than it made. There you go. That's all you need to know. Maybe you'll figure it out. I have on this podcast a lot going on. A little something at the top that I wanted to talk about that ties into what's going on in this Phillies Atlanta series, which is now over because Atlanta became the latest team to dominate the regular season and then lose immediately in the playoffs. So I want to talk about that. I have some thoughts. Million dollar picks. Craig Horlebeck and Danny Heifetz coming on to talk about NFL then and now comparisons for players. And then Austin Gale is going to nerd it up with us about the NFL. Oh wait, there's more basketball. Kyle Mann talking about all the rookies that we have coming into the NBA season in less than two weeks. And last but not least, our friend Joanna Robinson talking to MCU because she has a new book coming out. So this is really, really a loaded podcast. You should be paying for this. You really should. You're lucky this is free. Free content, my friends. Let's bring in Pearl Jam. All right, I'm going to do million dollar picks in one second, taping this on a Thursday morning. I was thinking about my friend James' baby doll Dixon today, whenever there was a Hollywood deal that we always would laugh at and be like, oh my God, I can't believe they did that or can't believe they took that job. And he would always say, money grab, baby. I'm talking about him like he's dead. He's still alive. What a money grab. And we just money grab has been a running joke with baby and Sal and Jimmy and my circles for a long time. Who's doing a money grab? All of the professional sports leagues right now are in one of the all time money grabs we've ever seen. Now, I was thinking about it last night with the Dodgers because on the one hand, the Dodgers get bounced in three games, right? They play this whole regular season. They get this great record and then they get bounced and they're done. And their fans are just irate. They're apoplectic. They can't believe this happened again. Oh my God, we lost momentum. Now, there's some rational Dodger fans that are also like, you know, we did start playing Kershaw in game one of a playoff series and he didn't make it out of the first inning. They lost Urias during the season, who was their best starting pitcher. And it was a pretty flawed Dodger team. Actually, I wasn't surprised that they lost. I didn't think it was gonna be the Diamondbacks. But in general, the Dodger fans are like, I just spent six months watching this team and this season ended in 90 hours. We saw this happen in the NBA with the Bucks and the Heat last April. The Heat was an eight seed. The Heat farted around during the whole regular season and turned it on for a couple games and all of a sudden the Bucks were gone, which was great. It was really fun. Hockey has had this forever. I had hockey season tickets for a couple of years with the Kings and the regular season was so meaningless and so stupid for a team that knew they were gonna make the playoffs that you almost wondered, what was the point? Why am I paying for this other than to see Connor McDavid or a couple other people? The NFL has expanded to 17 games, which all of us love football, but 17 seems way too many, especially with the injury potential. And they're probably gonna go to 18. They'll just keep the gravy train going. And it's all about the money. And I'm not breaking any new ground by saying that, but at what point do we stop carrying? At what point, because I'm there with baseball. Baseball is fun. You put it on every once in a while. But for the most part, if you have a good baseball team, and I've had a few, the 2018 Red Sox were probably the best start to finish baseball team I've ever rooted for, but ultimately they also could have lost and not won or it would have been over. It's all about the playoffs now. And it feels way more random than it ever did. And I don't know if it's a good thing. I think it's a bad thing for baseball because people talk about how fun these wildcard games are and the pitch clock, and I'm with you. I've watched a ton of baseball, but I also didn't really watch any baseball during the regular season. And I'm somebody who grew up loving baseball. I watched baseball my whole life. I wrote a Red Sox book up until probably the late 2000s. I love baseball equally with every other sport. And now I just don't care as much. And there's a million reasons for that. But the biggest reason is the regular season just doesn't matter at all. You could win 120 games and it doesn't matter. The other team could just get hot. Like, well, look at the Phillies right now. The Phillies, who everyone was like, they're built for the playoffs, they're built for the playoffs. That seems like the type of team you should just build. Build a team. Who cares about the regular season? Build it for the playoffs. I think Miami has entered this mode in the NBA just year after year. They don't care. They're going to be like a five seed, six seed, seven seed, eight seed. Doesn't matter. And they'll just see if they can get hot. It's more fun if you have no attention span at all. And maybe it makes more sense in the TikTok generation. But for what I grew up with and what we used to care about was the totality of everything. The regular season meant this. It really meant something to win 100 games of baseball. It was amazing if your basketball team won 60 games. There were just these little markers that you had in your head. And all this stuff ties in. The load management piece, which the NBA is allegedly trying to fix. I'll believe it when I see it. Football adding more games so that the sport is more random than ever before. There's more chance for injury than there's ever been. And there's more chance for just wacky results, which I think is maybe what they want. I'm not sure I want it. I don't like where we are. Like even in baseball, and I think hockey is another one, and I think basketball is another one. The home team should get some sort of advantage for being good during the regular season in baseball. This five game series the Dodgers had against the D -backs. Why wouldn't the Dodgers get all five games at home? The only advantage they get is that if there's a game five where they've just not played for a week and then you get game five at home and that's the advantage. Well, I've watched baseball for the last 25 years. The home field advantage, except for maybe the Phillies, doesn't seem to matter at all. The Red Sox won the majority of their biggest games on the road during the 2000s and 2010s. Can count them up. I always felt like the 0 -14, the 0 -7, I felt like those teams could win anywhere. The 18 team had that crazy extra extra extra innings game against the Dodgers where it seemed like the season was over. Guess what? They won the next game. Home field doesn't matter as much. So if it doesn't matter as much, at least make it so that in round one a team is rewarded for winning a hundred plus games and all their games are at home. And if you want to go in their house and beat them, that seems fair. But to just make it like it's worth one game, I felt the same way with Milwaukee and Miami. I think it should have been Milwaukee gets the first two, Miami gets the next two, Milwaukee gets the next three. They earned it. They got the one seed. So we're heading toward this world where regular seasons will continue to be devalued. They'll try to cover it up with fantasy and gambling, but for the most part, there's going to just going to be more randomness with the results. And I don't think I like that. I don't know if Miami was a better team than Milwaukee last year. I think Giannis got hurt and Jimmy Butler left his body and then they beat Milwaukee in a series and it was fun, but did that mean they were a better team? What's the point of these seasons? Are we just turning everything into March Madness? Feels like where we're heading. I'll tell you this though. It's a fucking money grab. All right. Million Dollar Picks coming up.

"I hate when people say this to me. That's my spiritual pet peeve. There are seasons in life and every season does not look the same. In real life. Welcome. Welcome, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome, everybody. Another episode. Welcome to the club. Last week I was corrected. Welcome to the club. The littlest club in town. Period. Okay, per. I was expecting a period. I was like, I know she ain't gonna leave me hanging. Absolutely not. Absolutely not. Welcome, everybody. Welcome to the club. Welcome to today's episode. We're your hosts, Joanna and Tracy. Yeah. How are you doing today, Trey? I'm actually doing really good. Thank you so much for asking, for being so concerned about me. I'm actually doing so good. It's been a great, great week. Great day. And yeah. How are you also doing, Joanna Kwao? Aw, that's amazing. I'm happy to hear you're good. And it was a great, what, week day, you said? Great week, great day. Sweet. Okay. That's amazing. I'm doing pretty well myself, Tracy. Thanks for asking as well. I think I'm more in a spirit of gratitude. I kind of heard two consecutive devastating news from my sister. In the past two days, I think. Oh, no. Yeah, but I'm actually very grateful to God for His provision and His guidance and protection. Because He actually, though the news was devastating, God showed that He was present and He protected her from things that could have been not so great news. So yeah, I'm really grateful. That is so cute. I hope she's doing good. Yeah, yeah. By God's grace, you know. Right. His grace is sufficient. Yeah, absolutely, absolutely. Well, today, Tracy, I thought about something. I wanted to know. I wanted to ask you that what is a song or two, maximum three, that has resonated in your heart this week and why? And why? Yep. That's actually a great question. All right. So my favorite song for the week, because it's really hard for me to choose songs, as I've said before, I really love music. I love listening to music. So it's really hard for me to choose a favorite or two or three. But then I have a cutoff for this week. So I'm going to choose three, max. Probably. Let's see. Maybe I can aim for it too. But the first one is going to be Chameleon. I don't know if you've heard it before. By who? It was sung by Stephanie Gridsner. Oh, I probably know it. It sounds like a song I might know. Yeah. Right. But that name, though, it's a really hard one.

Last week you were met with the Cupid Shuffle. I hope you guys loved it. Actually, it was the ChaCha Slide, yo. I made a mistake. It was the ChaCha Slide. Wrong info. Wrong information. Sorry guys, sorry guys. You know, I got out of the recording and I was thinking to myself, did I say Cupid Shuffle? Yes, you did. And I picked it up. And then when the episode aired, I heard myself say Cupid Shuffle and I said, I mean ChaCha Slide. And I wish I could go back and edit it and say, right? Oh yeah. It was live. It was. It's true. The Cupid Shuffle went to the left, to the left, to the left, to the right, to the right, to the right. Now kick, now kick, now kick, now kick. Now come and kick. We have welcomed you to the club with the Cupid Shuffle. Officially. Officially. and they say no lie we actually got it right this time yeah that's funny I love that I love that hope you guys are doing good I hope you guys enjoyed the last episode it was very dense we we do acknowledge that but we hope you guys learned a thing or two and we are open to learn from you as well so please don't hesitate to share what you like what you do to improve on yourself and how you're also probably gonna implement what we said how are you doing how am I doing like how am I doing like you know like how are you how are you or how am I dancing around this question since Saturday I don't know what is wrong but every single time I ask since Saturday how are you doing you go I'm good I know because you know I noticed but you know I'm no one to say anything until like you're comfortable enough to come out and say so I thought oh she'll be fine but today again you were given the same energy well huh yeah I mean I mean I feel like you know a lot of times we like ask how are you and it's more like a formality and you the person that's being asked you're most likely to just say like oh I'm good and also the person who's asking is probably like 80 % of the time just expecting like yeah I'm good what's up how are you to have thing right so then I feel like the question hits different when you're actually going through something and someone's like how are you and you're like Tom between am I just gonna go the formality route or am I gonna be like open and actually share how I'm feeling and that's kind of where I've been okay well I hope you know that with me you could tell me I I really have time and patience to listen to if you're not feeling good like I'm actually expecting a genuine answer so burying us with so much on this episode yeah next week LA you know God willing next week if she's feeling better yeah fingers crossed I'm doing I'm doing good I just had a problem with my group we had like group work there was yeah and the members of the group where one person didn't pull her weight that's what I'm gonna see she didn't pull her weight and literally cause the whole group to crash and that was a very stressful moment in my life but guys that I don't think I have like too much going on yeah well we hope that person that person pulls your weight because the most stressful thing I would say like in a group setting is like when someone isn't doing what they're supposed to do like girl or boy all right we counting on you please do your part and right and then like she was barking out orders like taking on the leadership roles I was expecting her to like you know at least do 80 % of the work since you want to be a leader you know something that's actually interesting I read somewhere that like if you're like in a group setting and you like let's say you don't want to do too much in the group usually right when people get into a group setting nobody wants to talk nobody wants to make the first move nobody wants to like take on you know the lead role and stuff like that but people have mastered this thing where they realize that listen if I'm able to start everything people are gonna see me as like you know I know I know what's going on I'm the leader blah blah blah and then I can delegate the duties and then give myself less to do so I feel like maybe it's a strategy she's using or he sees it all right and I don't have a problem with that right yeah maximum work generally right yeah I don't got a problem with that but my problem is okay so if you delegate it the rules in the test and everyone do your way your end of the exactly where is your weight you did zero work okay well that that actually is problematic like like even if you had 2 % to do you should have said exactly because you chose a 2 % right but then I don't want to go too much into it I don't want to go too much into it cuz like I'm hope the person picks up their weight and then everything can go on smoothly right yeah well I'm gonna praise into this episode all right all right shall we pray God we thank you we worship you and we adore you we praise your holy name Lord God we ask that you will give us a tongue of the Leonard and that you would speak to us and that you would come and teach us more about even this topic that we're sharing on that as we speak Oh Father God you speak to us and that we will understand even more on this topic we pray God and we ask that your presence will fill this place and saturate this atmosphere and may everything that we do bring glory and honor to your holy name in Jesus name I praise on my thanksgiving amen amen amen alrighty so today's topic before we get into that we actually have two topics for one episode today the first being occupy julie house and it's a little bit sticky it's a little it's a topic but we still wanted to put our two cents because unfortunately we do not have the liberty of being in person and then protesting with you people and standing in solidarity with that fellow guy means so we just wanted to use our platform to talk about it to get into it a little bit so Joanna was you think about the whole protest thing okay what did I think about it well I don't know I feel like there's gonna be a long one but let's see how well I can do so hmm so first of all I must say that I've had this conversation with multiple friends and had varying opinions on what they thought about the situation and it actually took me time to figure out what I thought because everyone kind of had you know a little bit of a different approach or perspective because I feel like this topic affects everybody differently okay like yes we are all onions but the impact of the economy on everybody is different so just hearing from different people how this has affected them or what they think about the situation has been really interesting and for me I want to approach this from a personal and a Christian point of view so after talking to multiple people and hearing what everybody had to say and also doing my personal research to understand where all of this stem from and what the protest was about the question that stood out to me was concussions be a part of peaceful protests I want to be really honest and say that when I heard all of this initially my almost default reaction was to just coil and and kind of be silent and act like nothing's really going on and not contribute my voice or not contribute to what was going on okay and this is just more of I want to say a personality trait maybe I don't know if I can call it that but I want to say this is more personality based why I must say that I really I'm not a big fan of controversial and confrontational situations okay and my friend coming at me and just like all of the things that were going on I felt like you know what I want to sit this out but then it was always on my mind right seeing all of the posts pop up I mean yeah I'm not really active on social media but I do go there occasionally and then I would see multiple posts about it okay right so I was really thinking about it for for a minute I was really thinking about it for a minute and as I said the question that stood out to me was concussions be a part of peaceful protests and also what would Jesus do in the face of injustice okay okay so those questions to me I feel like I needed to break down the layers of why I was feeling like I wanted to sit this one out and not a contribute in any way that I could I obviously I'm not present in the country so I can't partake of physical protests but I can you know support through multiple different ways virtually but I didn't want to and this is me being very honest right so I started to think I started to do a bit of research like and kind of try to come in from and I learned that in in scripture it's not explicitly stated that Christians you know should or should not be part of protests however one scripture that stood out to me was that Christians are to be a light in the darkness to and speak up against injustice okay and my initial thought process when I kind of did my analysis was that I thought that protesting was a sign of disrespect for authority and so with that mindset I didn't want to engage in such activities right to be a part of it however I came to realize that through more introspection and through learning that we're also called to call out and to condemn evil and so though the Bible may not have specifically addressed protesting God does not stand for injustice so after finding out this I started to think okay what do I say how do I act what can I do you know asking myself all of these really important questions and one thing that I acknowledged when I was doing the research of the protesting was that the protest was a peaceful one and as Christians as well we are called to be peacemakers and so I don't expect myself or a Christian to support a protest that is not peaceful.

And you are met with your favorite DJs, stroke hosts, today for the episode three. Oh my gosh, episode three. Wow. Already? Hi. Oh, I have exciting news, guys. So guess who is starting with our third episode. And we honestly cannot thank you, our lovely listeners in a breath super, super grateful. Y 'all holding us down.

So y 'all, this episode is going to be a continuation of episode two. We're going to be picking up from where we left off in episode two. So if you haven't been able to listen to episode two and you jumped right into this, I would admonish you to kindly go back and listen to episode two before listening to this beautiful one. So maybe a little recap of last week's episode would help us transition better into this week's. So for last week, we delved into the world of dating and pursuit and we explored different perspectives, mainly biblical examples. And we established that the woman's responsibility is not to pursue, but to be pursued. And we looked at examples from Adam and Eve and Ruth and Boaz. And we also looked at a scripture from Proverbs 18, 22, where it says he who finds a wife found a good thing and not the other way around. It doesn't say she who finds a husband. Right. And for this week, we're going to be looking specifically at Ruth and how she prepared herself to be pursued by Boaz. And last week we established that Ruth was not concerned about how she was going to get Boaz to woo her and stuff like that. She was very much focused on herself and how she could, you know, make a living for herself and for her mother in law, because we all know that Ruth was a widow and she lived with her mother in law. And she was also very hard working and she just possessed a lot of great qualities that helped her flourish as a woman. And that allowed Boaz to notice her and pursue her. And so in this episode, we're going to be delving more into this period of self -discovery and preparation. And we're going to draw on personal examples as well as what we have seen other people do and what we have learned in general in our lives. So, yes, let's delve right into it. And so we befittingly called this episode, Am I Ready? And before we get right into the episode, we'd love for our very prayerful Joanna to pray us into the episode. Wow. Isn't that beautiful? I'll take it.

Okay, please, if you haven't listened, kind of go back to the first episode and give it a listen, please. So that I can miss you. Yeah, yeah, if you want that. But obviously, please go back and listen if you haven't, but... Yeah, oh, my gosh, guys, welcome to the only club. Girl, you're supposed to finish that. What am I supposed to say? On the block. On the block. On the block, okay. Run it back. Run it back. Let's go. All right, guys, welcome to the only club on the block. Okay, I'll take you, I'll take you. You take it, you take it. I'll take it. Good enough. Yes, welcome back, guys, to episode two of the Club 31 podcast. You you and are met with your favorite girls, Jo and T. Big T, not the little one, the biggest. Okay, okay, okay. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Big T, okay. Big T, not the little one, the biggest. I love it. I love it. Yeah. And we are so excited to be bringing you the second episode today. And we miss you guys so much, and we hope you did miss us too. Yeah. So, yeah, we're going to get right into this episode. I know you guys are probably wondering, like, what's going on with the title? Like, I'm sure people have questions like, hey, baby. They're always up to something. We do too much, yo. We do too much. Would you rather do too much or do little? Think about it. We're big. I'll go home. Exactly. All right, guys. Listen, you should tone down the energy a little bit. But we're going to get right into prayer before we start. So please close your eyes if you can. I mean, I hope you're not driving, but if you can, close your eyes so we can pray. Shall we pray? Lord Jesus, thank you. Thank you for a beautiful day. Thank you for this great opportunity to come on here and to talk and have conversation about things that you have placed on our hearts. We pray in the name of Jesus that these conversations would bring glory and honor to your name. We ask that you would use us, Lord Jesus, as your mouthpieces to speak and say the exact things that you want us to say so it can bless us all. We invite you into this space and we ask that God, you would direct and steer this conversation in the way that you want it to. And at the end, we will give you all the glory and an admiration. In Jesus' name, we have prayed with so much thanksgiving.
A highlight from Everybody is Replaceable!!!
"Everyone is replaceable. Joanna, you are replaceable. Even when people buy dupes of like bags and shoes and perfumes and like all of these other things, it is just not the original. And you know it! Hello, lovely people. Hi, Joanna. How are you doing? I'm doing good, Tracy. How are you? I'm doing great myself. It is Labor Day. What did you do today? Well, I pretty much cleaned my apartment, which has been quite in a mess for a bit. But I got to cleaning and I'm really excited because I think, I do love cleaning. I don't think, but I do love cleaning. So just being able to do that makes me happy. So that's pretty much all I did. How about you? You said I'm wife material. For me, I just spend the day working. You know, not much. But yeah, that's basically it. Ain't nothing to it. I wish I was out exactly. Just running. I wish I was outside though. Cause I've seen like the videos of the carnival happening in Brooklyn. And I wish I could go for the carnival. But you know, if we just wear horses, Vegas will ride. Period. She's educated. Yeah, period. Well, today we do have a spicy topic. But before we do get into it, we'll have to start with prayer. Alright, should we pray? Lord Jesus, we thank you so much for today. Thank you Father God that finally we're able to sit here and to have discussions on different topics. But also to glorify you with our words. Holy Spirit, we invite you into this space. We actually acknowledge you in this space. And we ask that you would be our guide and director. And help us to say that which you want us to say to bring glory to your holy name. Thank you in Jesus name I pray. Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen. Why are you looking at me like that? I wish everyone could see. When she's giving sight, I'm like, amen. Amen. You were looking at me like, you know how when you un -spit me about a like play or who or whatever. That's how you were looking at me. You're like, this is how I want to do this stuff. This is how I want to do things again. How you started, I can't help it. I was going to, but when I saw your face, I was like, let me be steady. That's funny. Oh well, oh well, oh well. Guys, I'm excited about this topic. I feel like it has been a hot topic maybe. A lot of people talking about it lately. And so we also want to discuss and give our take on it. Before that, let's give out our business shout -out of the day. Of the week actually, because you're not going to hear from us the following week. So this week's business shout -out goes to Neil Bina. And she's upcoming and she makes beautiful nail designs, persons, whatever it is. She's really good at her job and I entreat everyone to look her up on Instagram. Nailed Bina, N -A -I -L -E -D, by N -A -A. She's so good at what she does, yo. I look at her work and I'm like, well, I'm proud of her. I'm proud of her work. So, and I will never show anyone fake. Period. Thank you. So yeah, y 'all go check her out. Go check her out. I think she's a really great nail artist. So what? Yeah, nail tech. Oh, nail tech? Yeah. Nail tech. Okay, yeah, nail tech, yeah. And she's, she's a friend of ours. So please support her business. Yeah, period. All right, Tracy, do you want to get us into our topic for today? Everyone is replaceable. Joanna, you are replaceable. Oh my gosh. Why did that just sound like so off in my ears? What? Say, I want to hear that. You are replaceable. Oh my gosh, that hurts my feelings. I'm sorry. Not. Well, I don't think I'm a believer that honestly, like as woke as it sounds. I don't think I believe that. And I have to say I agree with you. It is a statement that when I hear, sends word flags to me. And I'm sharing the same sentiments as you do. I really hate to hear people say that like, everyone is replaceable. Everyone is replaceable. Everyone is replaceable. Because then, you then treat people as dispensable. And I don't think anyone is dispensable. But yeah. Yeah, back to you. What would you say? Yeah, I was saying like, it sounds like a very woke statement. Like, you know how one person gets up and they have their opinion about something and everyone just kind of hops on it without like, actually, Deeping it and like forming their own personal opinion about it. Or sometimes like people feel like their opinion is contrary to the majority. And so they feel like, you know, what in order to not come up as controversial or whatever. I'ma just, you know, run with what everyone else is saying. Right. So that is a woke statement. Everyone is what replaceable. Everyone is replaceable. And it's so funny that in recent years is gaining popularity.

I'm Josh, and there's Chuck, and Jerry's here too, and this is Stuff You Should Know, the We're All Melting Edition. Yeah, I'm just a, just a migrating fern. Oh, that's a good one to be. Blowing through the forest, looking for a new home. Sure. I'm a spore. What happens when you get there, spore? Well, I'll probably grow into a beautiful new fern, because ferns are pretty hardy. That's awesome, and I'll bet you'll contribute to society in all sorts of beneficial ways that ferns that were already there couldn't necessarily do. I hope so. There is fern stuff in here, and I have a wonderful fern scene at my camp. On the other side of the feeder creek that goes into the main creek, I call it, I even have a sign that says Fern Forest, and it's a forest of ferns. It's quite lovely. God knows where they're from, because those things can travel quite a bit, as we'll see. Yeah, they could be from, from, from Alabama. Easily. I'm not kidding. Easily, man. I've got a stat that's gonna blow your mind in a second. Oh, boy. Actually, I'll just bust it out now. You ready? Yeah, yeah. How far can a fern travel? A fern can travel, the Tasmanian tree fern in particular, can send its spores 500 to 800 kilometers. That's 300 to 500 miles from the mother plant. And, get this, a single frond, a frond, produces more than 750 million of those spores. So you can understand that ferns, I mean, you find ferns everywhere. They're really hardy. They can actually survive cold, colder temperatures than you would think. They also thrive in the tropics. They're like a really great pioneer plant. They usually are among the first large plants that show up in a, like, a newly cleared part of Earth, right? This all makes sense then. Okay, so what we're talking about then is that those ferns that showed up in this new place and said, hey, let's get this, let's get this biosphere going again. Let's get this biome back into shape after this wildfire or something like that. Or there was like a stampede because there was a really great ice cream truck that drove through one of those two. Those ferns have migrated. They came from Tasmania, apparently, all the way to wherever the ice cream truck was, and now they're there. And so they actually moved in that sense, which is really surprising because plants are what are known as sessile organisms. They don't move from place to place individually as organisms, but as a species, they can actually move around like inchworms. Pretty, pretty good. Yeah, it's pretty cool. I didn't really know much about this. We're talking about plant migration and the idea, well, not idea, the very real fact that just like humans and animals will go to more hospitable climbs as the climate may change or just, I don't know, just to seek a better place to be. Plants and trees and things on mass do the same thing. Yeah, and there's all sorts of ways that they do that, too. So they do it by dispersing their seeds or their spores in that case, fern spores or single -celled organisms. They're not like a seed technically, but they do the same thing, right? They show up in a place and set up shop and they start rocking out. Yeah, that's right. And ferns, you know, it depends and we'll get all into this stuff, but how fast this happens depends on different factors. How far these plants can migrate depends on different factors. Why this is happening is generally climate change and plants and trees and things are generally moving north or up in elevation if they hit mountains. Or south in the southern hemisphere. Exactly. So this is sort of the general pattern. And we mentioned ferns because, like you said, those spores can really haul. Ferns also mature very quickly and, you know, the wind can just, that's why I got a fern forest at my camp, probably. Yeah, so they check both of the boxes that you need to be a fast migrating plant species. They produce seeds or spores at a very young age and their seed or spore can travel very far distances, right? Right. So they can move around. And also it doesn't hurt that, like I said, ferns are adaptable. The trees and other plants don't move quite so fast, but they move, especially if you look at the fossil record, a lot faster than they actually should. So if you pay attention to a single organism, say an oak, those acorns don't travel terribly far. They may get a little further away from the drip line if a squirrel happens to bury it somewhere and a new oak tree grows. I think it was Anders Sandberg who described acorns as solar powered factories for producing more oak trees. Whoa, whoa, Andy Sandberg said that? No, Anders Sandberg. Oh, OK. He's a philosopher at Oxford. That makes a lot more sense. Yeah, yeah. Andy Sandberg, he ate his lime accidentally in his Corona bottle. That's what he's got. You know who he's married to? Uh, Patricia Arquette. No, it's not a bad guess. You've been guessing Patricia Arquette for a lot of things lately, I feel like. Have I? He's married to, yeah, I feel like that's come up before recently, maybe, I don't know. Her name just rolls off the tongue. I know, a big fan of hers. He is married to, what's her name, Joanna Newsome, the singer and harpist. Oh, neat. And if you like, if you're into architecture and homes, you should seek out, I don't know if it was Architectural Digest or something, but someone did a spread on their home and it is really something else. OK, so that's Andy Sandberg hour that we just checked out. A quick detour. Wait, wait, I wasn't done. Oh, no, go ahead. So if you look at an individual tree, an oak tree, those acorns don't go particularly far away from the tree, as the old saying goes. But the fact that they do fall away from the tree means that very slowly, some of those seedlings are going to grow up a little more northward or a little more southward than its mother plant. And very, very slowly, the whole group of oaks can move southward or northward, right? Over hundreds and thousands and tens of thousands of years. So long. The thing is, if you look at the fossil record, they move way faster than that, than they should. And there is actually a paradox that was named by a guy named Clement Reed, right? Reed's paradox. Yeah, he's got a great, great title for it. Of Rapid Plant Migration. That's the full title. It sounds almost like snake oil from the 19th century. Yeah, it kind of does. So what is it? Oh, OK, I didn't ever set me up. We're still tight after all these years. For sure. So what he found from the fossil record, like you were talking about, and as we'll see, that's one pretty good way to study this stuff, especially pollen fossils, right? Yeah, because they're so hardy. Yeah, so he saw that trees were migrating a lot faster than the rate that you would think. And so those oaks, I think, was one example you gave on the British Isles after the last glacial period over a span of like 10 ,000 years or so. They traveled about 600 miles and it would normally take about a million years. If the seeds were just dispersed in a typical way. But what he figured was that what may be happening here is like some weird weather event happens that sent things much farther than usual or like some deer or something eats something and then poops out something really far away from where it started. And so all of a sudden this animal has spread it via their poo poo. Right, and this is how like large scale migration happens or I should say rapid migration over long distances, right? Right, yeah. It's the unusual, not just the acorn falling and hitting the ground, it's not just gravity assisted, it's animal assisted, which is called zucory or it's wind assisted, which is called anemocory or water assisted, which is called hydrocory. And that's just the way that some plants disperse their seeds. That's kind of on top of the normal way they disperse it, which is just dropping it from their leaves or the spores blowing on the wind, which I guess is one type of cori. So like if a squirrel loaded up its mouth full of things and somehow found its way into your camper as you set off for Arizona. That would be a freak event, sure. It probably wouldn't be en masse, but you know, that's a way a tree could move. All it takes is that one oak to make it, to just survive, and then it starts its own new part of the range. Yeah, absolutely. And we all should point out, when was Reid doing this? This is a while ago, like 100 plus years ago, right? Yeah, he was a geologist, I don't know if we said, but Reid's paradox of rapid plant migration came out in 1899 and it was a smash hit. Yeah, so people, I mean, for at least that long, science has been sort of curious about this migration happening at a rate that they would not expect. Right. The thing is, is it's really hard when you throw in the X factor to calculate how fast an actual species can migrate. And there's a few ways that you can study that kind of thing. One, as you said, is studying the fossil record, which is super helpful. But it's not showing you what's going on contemporaneously or within the last couple decades. This is 10 ,000, a million years ago, something like that, right? Yeah. So if you wanted to study something a little closer to home timeline, timeline wise, you would maybe set up what's called a permanent vegetation plot. You would just, you would mark off an area and you would go back there, you know, every so often, like every six months or every year or so, and just sort of chart what's I think they've been doing this for about 100 years since the 1920s. So we've got a pretty good data set there. Something else you could do is go somewhere like let's say you dug up some cool scientific journal from a scientist from, you know, 200 years ago that went and explored some island. And while they may not have like charted everything out exactly like you would in today's science, they may have a really nice diary about all the plant life there and things that they saw there and where it might be. And you could go back to that place. And it's not quite as tight of a record, but you could still get a pretty good idea of what's happening. Yeah, depending on whose journal you're working from. And back in 2012, a Danish team of scientists followed the record left by a 19th century geologist named Alexander von Humboldt from Germany, who was just an interesting dude in and of himself. He called coffee concentrated sunbeams. So he's my kind of guy. Oh, man, that's great. They went back to Chimborazo volcano in Ecuador, which Humboldt studied in detail. And not only did he study the vegetation there, and he classified all sorts of new plants that Europeans didn't know about at that point. He also noted exactly where they were on the mountain as far as the elevation went. Super helpful. Super helpful. So based on this information, the 2012 Danes were able to go back and recreate his trip. And then they were able to note what plants were where. And they found that everything, all species on average, had moved up the mountain by about an average of about 500 meters, which is significant. It's like almost a mile. It's like eight tenths of a mile. Yeah. Yeah, that's the average. Yeah. There was a lot of variation within that, but that's that's a long way for sure. And what we found out and I guess this comes up a little later, but a plant can find more climbs hospitable going up 500 meters than they might by going, let's just say north, like 90 to 100 miles. Yes. So like a much quicker road to better climbs if you just go up that mountain. For sure. Yeah, that's kind of two ways they move is longitudinally or altitudinally. You got to be in shape, though. Oh, for sure. You're going to climb that mountain.
A highlight from How Johanna Rojas Vann Wove the Truth Into Fiction
"So many of us have been there, we hear our family's stories and think, that should be a book. Most of us stopped there, but Joanna Rojas -Van kept going. She took her mother's story of immigrating from Colombia to the United States, wove the world, and sold her first novel, An American Immigrant. Before she was a published author, Joanna and I worked together at Fusion, the ABC Univision cable channel based in Miami. So I wanted to talk with her both because I am so proud to watch her soar, and because in a time when platform often trumps actual talent, Joanna's success is a reminder that there is a path for those with grit and faith who are willing to do the work. Joanna. Hi. Hi. Oh my. The second I hear your voice, I am transported back in time. Joanna, I want to start with you growing up in suburban Maryland. And there were not a whole lot of other Latinos around you. And so I wonder how that changed your points of inquiry around your story, your acceptance of what it meant to be American, how living in a predominantly white suburb shaped your sense of identity. I think it shaped so much of me. And there were some Hispanic people where I lived because where I lived in suburban Maryland was where the poor people lived. We lived in an apartment complex, but we were just on the precipice of the high school that was for the wealthy people, right? So my high school was predominantly white, and a lot of my friends were white. And so that did shape a lot of who I am because my home life looked so different from the home life of my friends. And I knew that, and I saw it very clearly, and it was an insecurity that I lived with. I mean - How? Tell me. Paint me a picture. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I just remember visiting the homes of my friends and being like, what is it like to have this much space? You can go to a corner of your home and be alone and not have to hear people talking or share a room or your parents leave for the weekends and leave you home by yourself. Like, where are your parents even going? My parents don't go anywhere. Like what? I don't know. It was just mind -boggling to me to feel that insecurity all the time of like, these people are so different from me. I'm ashamed of where I live. I'm ashamed of the car that my parents drive. I don't want to be seen with them. And something I didn't write in the book, but that is such a core memory of my life, is being at the skating rink when I was probably in middle school, and my dad calling me on my phone. And when I hung up, when we were about to say goodbye, I said, okay, bye dad. And I didn't call him dad. I'd never in my life called him dad. I called him Papi. But I was so embarrassed to say Papi because nobody has a Papi. Everybody has a dad. And I remember hanging up and being like, ugh, that felt so weird. And when does that switch for you, that sense of trying to hide? Miami, 100%. The first year that I was there, I was like, whoa, this is weird. This is culture shock. Like, I've never been around so many Hispanic people. And I would go to Walmart, and the people would speak to me in Spanish. And I'd be like, I've never spoken Spanish to anyone but my parents. This is strange. And then as I got more acclimated and made so many friends, I was finally like, oh my gosh, these people get it. These people are children of immigrants. They grew up speaking Spanish at home. I felt like I could even hide, you know? Because everywhere I went before that, I stuck out like a sore thumb. Everyone would say, where are you from? You look so exotic. And once I got to Miami, no one ever asked me that ever, ever, because I looked like everybody else.
Tornadoes kill at least 11 across US Midwest and South
"At least 18 people are dead across the Midwest and mid south as severe weather hit several states Friday, bringing with it reports of more than 65 tornadoes. Deaths were reported in Tennessee, Illinois, Indiana, Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi. Plus thousands of homes and buildings destroyed or damaged according to officials at a strip mall in Little Rock Arkansas Joanna McCain huddled with other customers as a tornado blew the roof from another building. We ran to the back, we huddled together, and we pray for our lives. Airline Abrams was in her store when the same tornado blew out a glass window. But we all made it into the bathroom, and it was only one person in storm prediction center forecaster Jared guyer says, these were fast moving tornadoes and the region will see more, possibly as soon as Tuesday. Severe weather becomes more common as we go through the remainder of the spring. I'm Julie Walker

"Out of control, but just, you know, that sense of, you know, what would happen if you weren't there anymore. And the durable quality of the world, you know, that it will just continue on without you. There's something reassuring about being absorbed into it. In this mysterious mysterious way, I look forward to that and so I'm trying to deal with my own sense of death and the shadow of death, but also try to be curious about it, especially since my parents are approaching death. And I don't want them to be afraid of it. Yeah. I feel that I feel like some people really find this kind of stuff to be so morbid, but I find it to be I find it to be so interesting. I've had that thought too. Oh, it'll be so interesting to finally die and know what happens or what it feels like or if anything happens. And I'm just curious, Joanna, do you have, do you have a hope for what it do you have a hope for what death is? Yeah, I don't, yeah, I don't know, but I do, sometimes when I'm really frustrated with, you know, just the perpetual injustice and suffering that's happening all around me, I think, oh, it will just be wonderful not to have to be so intensely in this world. And maybe there's some softer instantiation of things that will follow. But I don't really know. But I do also think that the suffering is part of maybe that's maybe that's kind of what I'm trying to say to that. As I get older, I'm more aware of suffering and more aware of how little I can do about it and I feel more and more like what we're supposed to do is we're just supposed to be listening to each other and trying to understand what everybody's going through and

"Let's hear another poem Joanna can you introduce and read the poem called. This poem, as I wrote it, I was dedicating it in my head to muriel rook heiser, it's a response to rook Kaiser's poem, then I saw what the calling was. And that poem, I didn't even know that poem existed and I had to do a reading with Rita dove and Rita dove has an exquisite ear and exquisite taste and she chose this poem because we were supposed to read a few poems together in an antiphonal way where she would read a few lines and I'd read a few lines and we'd go back and forth. And so she chose this poem and I just thought it was so radiant and beautiful. So I wrote this in response to it. So this is called here there is no one to appear for. No one calls me by my name. Joanna, jolt, ghost moth, notion, or an O, and an and where another road appeared. Gravel and alcoves of cold, my compass, a far field, and a syllable from enough or nothing in the rising scale of that bird I can not see first of Berlin gold from the trees where walking, I heard voices not mine. Glowing dust in my lungs past orchards and the stone wall. Here I can unfold in such relief. Diaphanous as the spaces left by these branches in the old Orchard burnt sticks. Emptied of who I was. The smallest cell packed with low autumn sun and dedication for anyone inside
Chris Kohls and Seb on Joanna Cassidy's Performance in 'Blade Runner'
"Think this is maybe her first movie or second movie. I don't know when splash came out. Darrell Hannah, you're talking about this combination of naturalistic. Oh, by the way, the naturalism. I think the best naturalism is when deckard is pretending to be from the confidential committee for moral abuse. He puts on that geeky squeaky voice and he's enjoying Cassidy's dressing room and she's getting naked. Her acting style with him, I mean, that's a real person who's just pissed off and suspicious. That you can't detect any acting there. Joanne Cassidy is just, it's just that, you know, she's in that environment. And she's reacting. And what's weird is that she is actually one of the androids. Yeah, right. But she acts more human than a normal human. You would expect it a movie. So much so that I didn't even I wasn't ready for the moment that she turned out to be an Android. Right. I thought he was going to her to find out who the Android girl is. I didn't realize it was her until she attacked him. And she punches him in the neck or something like that. In the throat. It's so good. Such a good moment. And yeah, and you don't notice it because you're paying attention to something else about her in the very moment that she hits him. So your attention is completely focused on that if you're a guy.

"Joanna also joins us now with more from the bankruptcy case that was back in court today. So Joanna, I mean, how does this sort of fit in the set of dominoes that just keep moving along? Yeah, well, Yusuf, it's not the 30 billion plus that FTX is valuation at one point, but $5 billion actually is at least something, right? I mean, for a while, people were talking about having absolutely nothing. And they do also say they have more assets that are highly illiquid. So it's 5 billion ish plus some of this other stuff that might be kind of harder to deal with. But it does look like it's at least something that they can start to wrap their hands around and maybe start to talk about how it could be distributed. What about the pricing action Joanna this morning some of the biggest moves we've seen since probably the pandemic as I understand it in terms of the winning streak, we were talking about relative quiet that's now turned on its head. Are there any particular ranges that analysts and investors are pointing towards that you've spoken to? Yeah, well, this is pretty interesting. It's now a Bitcoin is now up in 9th day and we have it above 18,000. It's going back to say December 14th levels and you just need a little bit more before it gets back to early November. So there is a little bit of optimism in the market at this point. It might be people are getting going for the new year. Crypto has been outperforming. There are some other kind of interesting narratives from coins such as cardano and avalanche, which is partnering with Amazon. So you have kind of some optimism in crypto right now. We'll be watching now for 20,000 in particular, those big round number levels do tend to get attention from crypto. So we're in the, we've gotten above 18, say, can it go to 20 or will it slip back into that 16 17,000 range where it's been trapped really for a few weeks now? So fantastic to see you. Thank you for the roundup that's Bloomberg's Joanne Austin true. Now BlackRock are planning to dismiss about 500 employees. That's roughly 2.5% of their workforce. And it comes with U.S. banks, fourth quarter results set to be overshadowed by threats of a looming recession for more details. Let's bring in Bloomberg's finance reporter Adam haig. Adam, how much of a sign is this then for what could potentially come with some of the bigger lenders on Wall Street? Well, what we've been seeing is, of course, is a broad move over the last few months to downsize banking operations that a lot of the big U.S. investment banks, but BlackRock is a little bit different and hasn't been in this situation over the last couple of years where it's been cutting back on headcount. So this kind of reduction in the order of 2.5% of its total global workforce is really quite significant. And I think it tells you a lot about not just the landscape in the finance and asset management industry, but what's happening in the economy more broadly is that CEOs and managers senior managers at companies are recognizing the fragility of the economy at the start of this year and are wanting to try and get ahead of what's looking like it's going to be an incredibly tough outlook. They need to make these decisions early. They need to kind of keep the staff that remain at the firms motivated and they're trying to do this early. They're trying to get ahead of their earnings results and they're trying to say

"Gifts that were a part of that journey. That i didn't even really realize until i wrote the book and i'm like oh my goodness that was such against us. That was growing slow right there. That was happening. Wow i think you've touched on so many important things you know how do we. How do we live the life we've been given without regrets. How do we you know. I think paul's words whatever state. I'm in i've learned to be content in. There is an art form that that we have to cultivate. But i know for me. I had to stop living in the there and i had to learn how to live in the here here in the now. This is the one life i've been given and so how to flory's wherever that is whatever were doing but wow it must've it did take a big maybe putting words in your mouth but did it take a lot of faith to leave the green green field to go to some place that you didn't know really what what was going to happen. That is such an interesting question especially given the fact that my faith was quite new. Yeah i i did. Grow up in the faith. Joanna but i- intellectually did not believe the concept of a risen savior and it really didn't start to click until my late twenties and it took a long period of study and the holy spirit convincing may end convicting me at all kinds of crazy stuff. I probably gave my lord my life to the lord. Fifty nine mega now. We're going to go. My good to go once was good. Let's do it again. let's try. Shouldn't i feel different so coming here. I didn't. I wouldn't say i had a super established faith right and i don't know that i fully looked at it in the context of faith But having moved here was where god grew my faith and that was a sweet sweet gift. Coming out Being here and having my own life mirror a growing season my own faith life mirror a growing season that god was growing. Some pretty crazy new seeds in me Through the bible. I mean it was not long after we moved here. I just started reading and studying the bible like i. That could never said anything before my life more than i'd studied any journalism textbook. I was like this is amazing. I could not get enough of god's word. I would literally be reading the bible. I was drying. My hair could not get enough of it and so it was a really beautiful time of my faith but it wasn't in what motivated me to get here. Sure you bet. Do you think that there was some space created for that to happen. Not only in time but having identity our productivity even our friendship stripped away that took you to deep replaced with the lord absolutely. There's sometimes i'm jealous of that jennifer because She really dug in and there was. There was a price because i didn't have friendships..

I mean just to sit down and enjoy the food To stop multitasking. A lot of people who are productive. Thank that the best way to get things done is to do a lot of things at once. But we all know that when we have fifteen tabs open on the computer or fifteen taps open in our head that is very difficult to be a productive so batching tasks or unit tasking or single. Tasking is much more productive. So in the end joanna. All of these things will make you more productive. Growing slow is actually surprisingly a superpower because the things that we care about the the things in life that we really you know we. It's good to to be successful in our businesses. that's fine god gives us good good work to do and we want to have healthy relationships with those around us and what we want to have time for vacations. All of those things are important in a growing slow way opens the door to all of those things and so much more So so good. I love the table of contents.

The options for repairing your devices in these kinds of situations can be pretty limited. Take it back to the company. Bought it from pay them to fix it or bring it to an authorized repair service. Sometimes the cost of those repairs can be so high. It's often worth just buying a whole new device but various proposed right to repair laws and even an executive order could address that by making it easier for small independent repair shops to fix our devices often at a lower cost or senior personal tech columnist.

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. That's exactly like a person than i would. Basically argued at length with us that you will never have that exactly traduced but something. That isn't a person you know a lot of what it is to be. 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.

He was convinced that he had been entrusted to carry out the mission outlining the revelation chapter. Eleven verse fifteen which read quote and the seventh angel sounded and there were great voices in heaven saying the kingdoms of this world are becoming the kingdoms of our lord and his christ and he shall reign forever and ever and quote so basically wants to be The messenger of to god basically. It's always it's always to me that people that are super religious especially when you're in the mindset of being a cult leader or a member of a coal or something of the sort that you all of a sudden see yourself as this grand profit or character or a figure head. It's like where was the. Where is the bridge that gaps from lake normal minister.

And don't be in front of people. And and so i for those I seven years. I just i honestly. I hid my you know and i. I love serving so i. I was enjoying serving. I served wherever. I found a need. And but i knew deep in my spirit god was calling me to to more But he had to change. Change me i am. I love this part of your story because you really did not want to step into what god was asking you to do. But i've had first hand experience. Yeah of what. God has done through just that willingness to obey in utah that well Yeah i guess. I would say i went kicking and screaming For the first who gracious. Probably twelve years We had what we called women's ministries and It it was effective in that. The women in the church were bible. Study taught to study god's word and we had prayer groups and i mean it was beautiful. It was but it was very it was very it. Was the girls of the church meeting together. Which is powerful and important. But we weren't. We weren't seeing it very effective in reaching out beyond the four walls of the church. Does that make sense. Yeah yeah and and so I i say this carefully. But i was. I was somewhat bored with. And i did not. I didn't lot love women's ministry. i love it i. I went because that was what you were supposed to do. If you were a good pastor's wife you were a part of it. And you needed to be there and present and joanna during all this these years of ministry. Where administered an with in that paradigm. I i was. God was teaching me To believe that he could use me you know. And so that that's a backdrop for what i'm saying since this story i'm telling but anyway my mom led the last six years of the women's ministries. Before i took over. She was leading it and she was so effective impresses that she was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to step down. And i i remember like oh god what are you gonna do..

"You're not just a ten year like you're like i. Nineteen point nine nine amazing gift to the body of christ. But you look back in. You think how you could have left that insecurity. You could let what you thought about you. Define you what. That man confirmed about you. You could just stayed in that role but instead you you said lord i want to think differently what would you say to that woman who's going. Wow i i feel so inadequate i was telling you yesterday that in so many ways though i come from a different. I'm not the shy girl. I'm the too loud grab that intimidation my own cash. That constantly is saying. Oh joanna you need to tone it down you are way too much my own fear that That my motives are not pure. And i know myself so well that i can actually get paralyzed by myself awareness. In god's been seem he's been seeing. Joanna will you believe what i say. Yeah above what Saudi how do we get our. How do we get there. Well you know the enemy comes to steal kill and destroy and he is constantly wanting to stop us all from just walking in victory in living out the call of god for our lives. Whatever that looks for looks like an any girl's life some whatever god called you to. It looks different than joanna and me but the enemy hates it. He hates to see us flourishing and he wants all of us to be hiding hiding and and To to honestly keep us keep a secluded and feeling ineffective and insecure. I mean that that is his he can do that. He has one and over the course of minnesota course of my life but if we just look at even just james river when we came to james river john and i were we were. I would say we were broken. Leaders we were we were. We felt very in inadequate for the task of pastoring we had pastored for two and a half years pioneered a church in kansas city. That was extremely difficult and Just we we tried so hard. We we made nineteen thousand phone calls we knocked on. I think we knocked on about five thousand doors and we had we had to a two three and four year olds during that time When we went when we took we started the church and we knew no one in kansas city area. And i i. I give that backdrop just so girls listening to understand what we're experiencing now. It's supernatural. yeah but at the same time it. We had to choose to have faith even through the difficult seasons and times in our life and in the journey. So just because i say man. You need to believe god's word and if you believe god's word for yourself the truth about what he says about you then it's all going to be like..
"joanna" Discussed on The Living Room with Joanna Weaver
"What he was saying. He was saying debbie. Don't don't you. Don't i don't believe what he's saying is true. And we went home that night and prayed about it and felt like god was leading us to come. The this man was not a bad person. Yeah yeah In god we took the position we served under him. It was difficult. But this he this pastor lab to god yeah he wanted to honor god with his life and god wanted to use him. Teach us things That we would take into ministry. He taught us things that he didn't that we knew we didn't want to be if that makes sense. Yeah and and so I'm thankful for those that year and a half two years that we were under his leadership and also god began to use that season to cause me to evaluate his truth about me Because i had to come to a place. Where i believe the word of god over what anyone would say over me or speak over me or or my past the things that i've experienced that had created insecurity in my spirit. And you you know we can. I knew scripture. Joanna use psalms one thirty nine by heart. My parents read truth over us over their children and spoke truth over us but honestly until we believe that truth for ourselves we can have hanging on the wall. We can have it memorized but until we believe it. it's not going to radically effect our thinking. And and so you know she believes shares a lot of that journey And really. I did not. I started to understand that. I was thinking wrongly about myself Through those first few years of ministry. But it took years and years. Before i fully embrace the truth of god's word for myself and said okay. God i believe you have Perfectly an intentionally created for the purposes that you are calling me too and that with with you in me. I can do all things that you called me to and And do them effectively through your power that is were at work in me And once i honestly chose to believe that for myself. That's when i saw god opened doors That i would have never imagined would have opened. I love it so ministry. So one of the things that i i see in a seat in my own life to is the things that i've struggled with what i think are liabilities. What i think are going to keep me from being affected are actually the places that guide us is most and i see that in you. Debbie like you know that girl you see that girl who struggling you know her you see that girl who feels inadequate use yet girl who who just wants to kind of be invisible and you know how to drive out and i was just thinking last night of though is prayed. Oh god please let me work. I was thinking first of all for of you. Who are listening. You know debbie. Her story is really beautiful. They went onto a two to pastor at different situations planted a church. It didn't really go very well now. Springfield and then began to fulfil. Just this as orey now have over. Twelve thousand people worshiping on a sunday morning at multiple. Campuses You have a prayer media that has five to six thousand yet. The thing i love about you. Debbie is. You are still. You're still that girl with heart wide open. And and you are that girl who i honestly think. I think you're the heart behind. James river back. Because i walk into this mega church and i feel the love that and i think far from being a liability girl..

"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. God wants to have with you and me if you'd like to learn how to cultivate a deeper friendship with god. I'd like to point you to my book having a merry heart in a martha world. It's really the story of my journey into intimacy with god and it's filled with tips and tools. I've picked up along the way as well as the deeper. Look at that story of mary and martha. Those two sisters. So deeply loved by. Jesus you can find a sample chapter over. Today's show notes. Joanna weaver books dot com. Will you guys. I hope that this episode has helped you see that intimacy with god is not a bunch of things we do instead.

It's becomes deeper invited. God to be a part of our everyday life while you guys. I hope you have a wonderful wonderful week.

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.

"Of a quote that i read from kim gear. Many years ago. He said i've discovered. It's not how intensely. I struggle. But how completely i surrender mentioned that over and over and i've found it through my life. The more i yield. Now where. I say god i i want all of you in all of me and sorry. Give my entire life. That's that's so attractive to the lord that hungering part that's the best life team and thank you again for being with us yet. My pleasure well. I hope you were encouraged today.

That comes out in december because you guys the holy spirit of god has everything that we need. It's the same power that raised jesus from the dead. The bible tells us that is already within us and wants to quicken. Our mortal body impedes epistle. He wrote these words that we've been given everything needed pertaining to life and godliness as we open our heart to the holy spirit's work. He wants to lead and guide us. He wants to give us wisdom. He wants to give us power to overcome and more than that. He wants to make jesus in the bible. Come alive to our hearts and minds because this we walk according to spirit. Well we're not going to fall into sin like we used to. We're not going to fall into the traps that the enemy sets because the holy spirit is changing it from the inside out helping live in love and lead like jesus. Cnx time my friend..

"Sometimes we just don't really know whether the circumstances we're going through is part of pruning or just being in a fallen world or what but there comes a place where we can rest that god has are good in mind and it doesn't even matter because whatever it is. He's gonna work for our good he. He loves us in his tending faithfully and tenderly That's that's so important. I think just even even wrapping our heads around that even if we can't understand the actual Experience understanding the father's heart. I think it's so important in their happen. There've been and i have had them extreme extreme pruning seasons where i had said lord wait a minute that was super fruitful. That's just not gir- you know. That's not just new. Buying that was like super fruitful. And he says joanna trust me. They know what i'm doing. And and i can look back and go. Yeah you really really did. And it was for my good yes it was. There was a season i think. Sometimes we forget this too. I don't know why. I feel like we're supposed to at least bring this into the discussion that there are seasons of what appears to be inactivity absolutely really hard on us when as you've been doing a study in this what have you learned about those times. Oh my goodness sat dormant season. The winter season is so important to the health of plant and if future productivity A lot more is happening in those doorman seasons than than we ever know. Certainly for the plan but also for our lives and so. I think there's a time to just again. It's sat settling into where we're at right now. Not wishing past seasons back in oath. I could only go back to that time where it seemed like i was so fruitful or stretching ahead to. Oh well i'm just hoping this will work out. And then then i'll bear fruit but but even now even if it feels like a dormant season settle in with jesus love him. Let him love you one of the things that that i talk about it again. I try to stay away from fancy spiritual formulas but but i know that there are practices. That kinda helps with the binding and so for me. I in the book. I offer six simple practices of abiding and so it it seems so basic we think about jesus and so i've included some jesus sought prompts. How do we arrange our lives in a way that were never we never give ourselves a chance to forget him that we we create opportunities for our mind to keep going back to him and then we talked to. Jesus we keep a running conversation with him going. I was thinking recently. You know we do what we can do. But we pray what we cannot do. ending god does so much but we talk to jesus we talk at about. Jesus just like we're doing now with bringing him into our conversations with our friends. We love jesus and let him love us in join. I think this might speak to that doorman season. Where we're it's okay. Sometimes to not. Just be blooming..

"Maybe you're right down in a shares. Maybe remember some of your history with god maybe dream a little bit with god. But you just set aside fifteen minutes a day pondering the love of god the love that he has for you It will change your brain structure interchange your saw. I mean it literally does change things neurologically for you. Hot not to mention how spiritually changed his thing. So i know for me. Joanna win my spiritual disciplines. Become otto's in should do's and maybe i've said this on your show before and not get too for me. It's because i've lost sight of the love of god so when i'm in a place of just surviving like my anchor. My hope is to get back to that place to remind my soul. That i can't. I can't interpret god's love through the lens of military hardships. That's why scripture says that we don't look at what is can seek temporary rising what we cannot see because these are light and momentary troubles and they're achieving for us eternal glory that far outweighs the mall in the fact is our problems. Don't feel like in momentary. There's nothing about them. That feels metairie but the word is true. So the contrast of the glory that awaits us is so significant. We can't even imagine so. I say every moment every hardship every battle has eternal implications. Like whether you choose face or not whether you choose love or not whether you choose to find your strengthen the joy of the lord or not in our our part. That really makes a very big difference. I'm gonna choose to believe the father's love even when it doesn't feel. I don't know about you but there's times where i've had to say. I want to pay attention to my feelings at different times. But i in certain i'm not leading with feelings. I don't know if that's helpful but it sure helped me. Well that's exactly what the lord's been teaching me going through my journals from the last three years because they've been working on a new book and just the struggle of it that it is for me and one of the things i just keep the lord keeps bringing me back to over and over is joanna. I need you to stop living your feelings. And i need you to start living by the fact that you are mine that i love you and i have good good things for you and if i if you're constantly judging me by your experience or your current reality basically it came down to this. He said to me one day. You need to stop contradicting me. That's good got to stop contradicting me. And every time. I allow my feelings to lead most of the time especially when it's in that negative bent. I'm in opposition to god's word i am and so how to do that and i think that that's one of the things i love about this. Devotional is you. Bring us back to the truth of god's word and i do love it. He didn't tidy up scripture to just make it stories of people who only always overcame. You know. I love that you were gonna learn from those mistakes as well absolutely you know we. We are in a day of cherry picking theology. My truth in your truth is so damaging amid post-truth cultures. They're calling it right now and one of the things i do..
