Seattle Children’s Knew for Years Security Was Called Disproportionately on Black Patients

"Seattle Children's Hospital are more than twice as likely. Have security called to their rooms. If they're black, it's a racial divide in the use of what Children's calls Code purple more from comas. Corwin take Seattle Children. Staff members invoke Code purple if they need a security guard to report to a patient's room in response to unsafe or threatening behavior, either by the patient or often by a parent. A Seattle Times investigation finds Code purple is invoked more than twice as often for black patients than for white patients. It's a form of institutional racism. That in part, led to the resignation of Dr Ben Danielson as medical director of the Odessa Brown Children's Clinic, part of the Seattle Children's System, Danielson tells KCTS Seattle Children's own assessment revealed the disparity a decade ago, finding that security was just proportionately called on families based on the color of their skin. 10 years ago and then sitting on that there's a tacit acceptance and since there's a complicity of like, Yeah, we know this and we're not gonna do anything about it. A Seattle Children's spokesperson acknowledges the issue. Telling the Times systemic and institutional racism exists across our healthcare system and Children's is not immune. The spokesperson ads The hospital's goal is to eliminate the code purple disparity altogether.

How Your Memory Works and Why Forgetting Is Totally OK

"Thinking about the past week denied any of you. Forget where you put your phone. Did you have a word stuck on the tip of your tongue. You couldn't remember the name of an actor or that movie a friend recommended. Did you forget to take out the trash or move the laundry from the washer to the dryer or to pick up something from the grocery store. You meant to buy what is going on here. Is your memory failing. It's not it's doing exactly what it's supposed to do for all its miraculous necessary. Pervasive presence in our lives memories far from perfect our brains are not designed to remember people's names to do something later or two catalog we encounter. These imperfections are simply the factory settings even in the smartest of heads. Memory is fallible. A man famous for memorizing over one hundred thousand digits of pi can also forget his wife's birthday or why he walked into the living room. Most of us will forget the majority of what we experienced today by tomorrow added up. This means. we actually don't remember most of our own lives think about that. So what determines what we remember and what we forget here are two examples of super common memory failures and why they're totally normal number one. Where did i put my phone my keys. My glasses my car. The first necessary ingredient in creating a memory that lasts longer than the present. Moment is attention. Your memory is not a video camera recording a constant stream of every sight and sound. You're exposed to you can only remember what you pay attention to.

George Floyd's death under the knee of a police officer as reverberated around the world, inspiring murals and marches, sparking conversations in living rooms and new legislation. But a more basic question is always remain. Would justice be done? In this case? At least we have our answer, But if we're being honest with ourselves, we know that true justice is about much more than a single verdict. In a single trial. True justice requires that we come to terms with the fact that black Americans are treated differently every day. Really every day black Americans have treated different. I know blacks who say that's not true. My brother's. The gentleman I'm filling in for it requires us to recognize that millions of our friends, family and sitting fellow citizens live in fear that their next to counter with law enforcement could be their last. I missed the president. I have a suggestion. Why don't they just follow what the police asked them to do? Even if the police are wrong?

Thought put behind the feature. One of the things that we found is that there are one hundred and seventy million people on facebook who are connected to a page. That's four podcast already. So they've expressed that they want to get updates from the podcast. They wanna get that content. We just literally don't have a format today for that page or people wanna share podcast. It put that out to the people who wanna follow that going to build that they're the creator tools for people doing podcasts to share it but then on the consumption side an experience where you can just discover that and feed. Start playing it. Put it in the background. Maybe go to a different apnea. Keep playing or multi task do different kinds of stuff so podcast obviously a big thing already. But but i think just unlocking the ability for people in creators to share long form content. There's going to be pretty valuable. The initials r s weren't mentioned in the release nor in zuckerberg's interview facebook's also announced live audio rooms available for facebook groups and public figures for the live audio creators will be able to turn alive conversation into a podcast for everyone to listen to later says the company he'll be able to charge for access or accent tips.

Yeah well and the beautiful thing is is if you guys are listening to this interview in march you can still get this devotional because it's just numbered by day rather than by date and i really really love how you've given us the two opportunities to read chronologically through the bible or to go by topic you got Dealing with sin faith admitted opposition entries on the peace of god the power of the gospel sharing your faith shining in the darkness. There's just wonderful things that like. You can just page through the contents at content page and find. What do i need from the lord today so this is a so interactive and it's so practical and as always it's so powerful. I love the words that god gives you susie because they just seem to just cut through the fluff. I'm with you girl. I am not a fluffy devotional girl i want. I want meat and you have definitely set a beautiful table. You know you talked about twenty twenty being such a crazy year. And and i love the timing of the lord for this devotion i was just thinking you know for those out there that are listening and that word prevail and the here it in. They want it but they feel perhaps like the doing anything but prevailing. They just feel like they're surviving. How do we move from that posture of surviving to to that place of thriving or it's a great question. I know how i have to do that. As someone who still deals with some chronic health issues is you think about any time. There's a delay of the promise any time the burden feels heavier than the weightiness of god's promise anytime god feels absent because he silent it's the enemy will leverage those moments to step in between as if he can between us in god to say. Did god really say. Do you think he really is. do you. think you really are and The dow those are the times where we walk by faith not by sight. And you know this is a this is a a loose interpretation of regard cokes. I just don't remember it exactly. But he said something to the fact that that jesus not only love does i that first time he loves us. I every single day. The the love of god is what changes us and i have a daily radio talk show and i love brain science and just because i see how connected it is as a person.

"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.

"You know. it's definitely different this year. But i just i'm asking the lord that that are christmases would build with his presence even though the presence and the family may look a little different this year in today's episode. I'm talking to my dear friend. Kelly below about the beautiful rest that is available to us in. Jesus when he came to bethlehem two thousand years ago he came to do more than just pay for our sin. Insecure our entrance into heaven. The prince of peace came to give us his joy in his piece rate here in the middle of the craziness of life. So here we go. 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 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 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 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 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 That is so good so good. You talk about seven ways that we can find this. Can you kind of unpack those quickly. And then maybe we'll drill down on a couple. Absolutely will they're seven ways of rest in really what these are ways into. Christ because christ is the the way the truth and the life and lately we wanna walk into christ jesus because he is the prince of peace and so the more refined christ the more we find peace than where we follow. Christ them where we follow piece so in a nutshell. There are seven ways to come away. I call them. The first one is weakness. You know we. A lot of us are afraid to admit that were weak. But there's actually it says in scripture that christ's power is perfected in our weakness There is humility..

"Than that? I think it's both and so if you whatever your life is you know there are people that you're dealing with. Maybe it's a roommate. Maybe it's a spouse a partner. Whoever it is there are people that you deal with on a daily consistent basis. Maybe it's the CO workers that you like and the ones that you can't stand you know maybe it's the students who are in your school or maybe it's people in your faith community. There are folks that you're interfacing with all day every day and we all know that living in this world carries its own unique pressures in two thousand nineteen. I mean you cannot open up your computer or your laptop or social media and not see something that is absolutely gut wrenching every single time you look and so there's a reason we're all alive on the planet. God is not up in heaven going. I just didn't know this was going to happen. I'm totally freaking out about the digital age. I didn't know people were going to be becoming more polarized and living in their camps. And we have this unique special responsibility to get up every day and and begin to connect with humanity and begin to connect with one another in a way that is very different than the The narratives we could yield ourselves to when it comes to polarization in media or judging people about their social media making decision about who they are even though we don't even really know them or letting everything else in this world pass dress the good shepherd that you talked about earlier and so I think it's really important. Connection is the thing that enables us to live with holy gumption connection is not something that's way out there connection is happening in our lives every single day and so to make it that practical. It is the people that you're around all the time. It is those folks that are in your cubicle. That you don't want to acknowledge recognize paying attention in meetings and speaking out for people when they are not being heard or when you can have a voice for Change. It's your responsibility to notice to be awake to be alive in your life to show up for your own life and so I think that's that's what this means. It means God whatever my life is in the seasons when I love it in the when are just would rather not. I'm going to wake up and be present in my own life. I'm going to show up in my own body and be here and got him available to you that's awesome. I love that low. Then we'll Ashley is close. Would you pray?

You'd help us lean into connection or that we would notice the people who were in front of Scott. You would give us great courage to show up in our own lives. God you would help us with the relationships where we might be struggling.

"That with with you in me I can do all things that you've called me too 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's so ministry so one of the things that I I see I see it in my own life to is the things that I've struggled with what I think are liabilities. I think are going to keep me from being effective are actually the places that God uses most and I see that in you. Debbie like you know that girl. You see that girl who's struggling. You know her girl who feels inadequate you see that girl who who just wants to kind of be invisible and you know how to dry out and I was just thinking last night of pre God. Please let your view I. I was thinking first of all for those of you. Who are listening you know. Her story is really beautiful. They went on to to to pastor at different situations planted a church. It didn't really go very well. Not Springfield and then began to fulfil just this as. Tory. Now have over. Twelve thousand people worshiping on a Sunday morning. Multiple Campuses You have a prayer meeting. That has five to six thousand yet. The thing I love about you. Debbie is you are still you are still that girl with heart wide open and you are that girl who. I honestly think I think you the heart behind James River Bash. Because I walk into this Mega Church and I feel the love that and I think far from being a liability girl. You're not just a Tan. You're like you're like nineteen point nine nine amazing gift to the body of Christ. But you look back and you think how you could have left that insecurity. You could let what you thought about you. Define you with. That man confirmed about you. You can just stayed in that role but instead you you said Lord I wanNA 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 Assane 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 Ghazvin do not seem thing he's been seeing Joanna. Will you believe what I say? Yeah above what thirteen? How do we get our? How do we get there? Well you know the enemy comes to steal kill in destroy and he is constantly wanting to stop us all from just you know walking in victory in living out the call of God for our life. Whatever that looks for looks like an any girl's life some whatever guys called you to. It looks different then Joanna and me but the enemy hates it he hates to CS 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 oh he can do that. He has one and over the course of Minnesota the 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 pioneer church in Kansas City. That was extremely difficult and Just we we tried so hard. 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 old during that time When we went we took we started the church and we knew no one in Kansas City area. And I I give that backdrop just so girls listening will understand what we're experiencing now. It 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 and the truth about what he says about you then it's all going to be like. Oh this is sunshine resident. You know we have to keep trusting. Even in the difficult seasons is so We ended up Leaving that her Feeling God calling us away from that Church that we launched in Kansas City which was really difficult because once we said God were done which was about a year and a half in. We only had thirteen people in five of them. Were Lindell's so that we had eight people after a year and a half On a Sunday morning. And so you I mean that's not very many people sitting in a gymnasium of a brand new school so it looked pretty empty. Every week was very difficult once we said. No that's when the church started growing and once we said we're done the church started growing and by the time we left that to come to that church to come to James River. There was a hundred people had that church in God had sent another pastor to take the church which we were. We were so grateful so when we looked if we looked at that season through human eyes we felt like we failed. You know but but then we now looking back at it like God was teaching us reliance on him because I can honestly say when we went into it. We thought if we check all the right boxes if we you know set up the chairs perfectly if we if we we have good worship and whatever and good preaching then people are GonNa come and God was teaching us. He's the one that builds the church and I in a way. We're getting on a side note here but somebody must need to hear this. You know it is God working in and through us but we as well have to learn to keep our hands open. Guide she now. It's it's you working through us as if we rely only on ourselves. Were not going to see the supernatural power. God made manifest in through our lives. So it's and both it's US believing God can use us in his S. trusting completely in his power to flow through a US but getting back to James River when we came to James River. Then we we felt so weak so broken and the Church. Leave there were. There were only eighty people in the church and when they interviewed us for taking the lead pastor of the Church. We were just like. We don't have much to take. Yeah we're we're worn out. Were we feel week? We feel like we failed and it you know. It's such a beautiful contrast that other interview but they were like you know we believe God uses wake people and we believe you are called to lead and we we WANNA we want you to come and we believe you will come. God's going to work through you and worked through your experience of the past to to bring about his will and built his church here and so on that alone. I mean seriously. We didn't feel like we had anything to offer. But we came on a on their encouragement. Yeah so much you know I. I think if we can embrace the story God has for us. I feel that often I know for me. I entered ministry. I was called to be a pastor's wife just thought God was going to do amazing things through us that it was going to be glorious and to be honest we haven't had that using growth but my husband is always just kept reminding. Joe At join. Our job isn't to be successful as to be faith a so true and you know. He's the one that built the church. James River is no better than any other church. Yeah it he has sovereignly. Chosen that here in this particular community. He wanted this. He wanted to reveal his grayson in a different way. You know because number. He loves numbers because in the word of God. He talks about numbers a lot. So numbers are important to him and every person is important to him every single person so numbers matter in that they represent people but he I mean I love how Gods Church churches represent to me. I've you kids. They all have a different personality. And they all represent him in different ways Into every leader out there. That's trying so hard to be faithful. God is using you and you can't evaluate it off of just what you see because I look back at that time in Kansas City. And I'm like God was he. Was that churches now. A active and involved in in doing great things for him there. He used us to lay the foundation in laying. The foundation was a hard art but we came in going to James River going. Okay God will here we.

"That was really sweet because then I could also I could see my strengths. And that's the thing I also love about the any Graham. It's very clear about the strengths. It also highlights the weaknesses and in one of the things that I love that you. Do you talk about their so like you said so. Many layers to the Graham. That's why That's why while you might not find yourself. Just exactly one type as you look at the wings and the triads ads and the different things but you also bring up that that. There's an alignment that also affects our number. Can you talk about that. Yes so so In nineteen seventy seven one of the teachers and the Interim Don Richardson. He since passed but he came up with the levels of development. Such a great great Way To understand a personality because you know what are we like when we're doing well and healthy but when when we when we're not doing well and not healthy is is really important for us to take a look at but from our vantage point from a Christian perspective. What we've noticed is it's really levels of alignment in this is when we're aligned misaligned and Ottawa? Lamotte the truth of the Gospel. Now when we're in Christ our relationship status never changes. It is him who has done the work for us. And we'll continue that work but our mind our heart can wander from believing what is actually truth that we are his beloved but when we're aligned the truth of the Gospel Bowl we will know believe and trust in who we are in Christ and that he is the antidote to our core fears incor- desires and he takes care of everything in when we're in that state of being aligned. We're GONNA live out fully as if we because we are his beloved but we're GonNa know it and live it out in such beautiful way. Yeah but when our MIND STARTS TO WANDER WE'RE GONNA start to live in a misaligned way which is kind of auto pilot or average health and we're GonNa think that you know God is great and yes he sovereign. He's doing all this good work over here in my life but is he kind of take care of this over here. Maybe I need to start to take control. And that's when we start to live in our own strength now maybe not across the board but definitely in some key areas of life in it can really have some consequences and hindrances for us and we're not always aware of it. It's almost like we're sleepwalking And so that is something to really just be to to note and understand but then when we're not I'm not doing well at all. We can be out of a lame at the truth of the Gospel. Now we're still his beloved but we're not believing it we're not recognizing it and we're living as an orphan alone in life is so or just trusting in our own abilities and our own strengths and strategies which hurt us and others more and more in this is when outside help might be needed to get us out of that kind of stage. So but here's the thing. The good news says crisis taking care of everything and to get up the levels alignment. It's not reading more books and fixing yourself and pull yourself up by your bootstraps now. Of course there's always good things that we went to obey and follow the Lord in but first we have just surrender and depend on who are in Christ and as Kim to work through us. It's thin that the Holy Spirit moves in and brings us back up in the levels of development reminding our heart who already are in him and of course we WANNA walk by faith and Do what he has commanded us to do you. But it's through the Holy Spirit that those things happen. And that's how we talk about the levels of alignment. Yeah yeah well in as I the Lord has been growing and maturing me you know he's so good isn't he loves us just the way we are but he loves US too much to leave us that way and and it's been fun as I've studied the grabbed. Oh that's what you're up to in those times when my core desire or my core or longing has been frustrated The Lord has been teaching. I write a lot about it in having a Mary. Spirit allowing God to change us from the inside out that my flesh rush woman that that flesh that dwells in me. Paul says it's at war with God and his spirit. That's where flesh woman freaks out when my core longings not being met when people don't appreciate my number Tunis and I'm learning to go. Ooh what a a good opportunity for crucifixion. where it says put to death those the flesh in its evil desires? You know not that they're evil. They're there there legitimate longings but they've been magnified to a place that if I'm constantly being led by my core longing I'm not going to become the woman of God. Odd that he wants me to be so I really loved that you bring that out yet in the progression of an idol is that we I desire and actually desires not bad gave us desires Desires can be really good but when we start to than demand and then judge and then punish others for not coming through for us that's when it starts to become an actual idol is. That's really what you're talking about and so we just want to recognize okay. Guy Gave me desires as a type two three six whatever type that are good but when does it take it too far when we start to demand judge and then punish rush to get what we think we need instead of trusting that he has his timing purposes for us so so so good I cannot wait cannot way to dive a little bit deeper into this in our next interview but for this interview we wanted to get this overview so why don't you go ahead and tell us about type seven eight nine yes absolutely okay. So sevens or the entertaining optimus and they their core. Fear is being deprived trapped in emotional pain limited board and and definitely missing out on something fun. So the true foams of the world They desire to be happy satisfied fully content but they never feel like like they are and that's where the core weakness comes in is gluttony. Now this isn't just about food. This is a feeling that they have a great emptiness inside and having an insatiable Desire to fill themselves up with experiences and stimulations in hope that they will feel completely satisfied in content but think of him having empty bucket inside that has holes in it. Well it never feels like it's filling up and so they're constantly thinking of the next fun thing the next exciting thing and they're always planning cleaning for what to do next because to sit there without feeling that up. It's like a kid who's starving and has hunger pains for not just going to be like up. I'm just GONNA like kickback. No worries they're gonNA be looking for food but what happens often for the sevens is they'll see cotton candy and they're like. Oh my gosh is going to be amazing amazing and then they eat it and it's like Oh that's so wonderful but it doesn't satisfy right so it's like filling up this bucket that has holes in it and it just never fully satisfies so what they long to hear is you will be taken care of. They don't think anyone is or can because they're not getting that complete satisfaction but the more seven is present in the moment and looks around them at what blessings they do have in savoring the moment the more those whole plug up and they start to feel satisfied because God is taking care of them has always been taking care of them but so often they're looking forward to the and exciting and they don't take notice of the now and it's in the how in the savoring that makes them feel filled up that are type aid is a protective challenger they fear. You're being weak. Powerless armed controlled vulnerable manipulated and definitely left at the mercy of injustice. They just want the desire to protect themselves in those in their inner circle now their core weaknesses lust or excess whether constantly desiring intensity control and power and they might I be pushing themselves willfully in life or even on people in order to get what they want and desire an AIDS. I talk about them as being snowplows because because they have this incredible intensity and power and drive which we need just like we need a big diesel snow plow in the Midwest and the north to plow highway. That has a foot of snow. We need that but we also don't need it to nick us on the side of the road or plow over us and so we need. Aides needs to recognize how amazingly powerful they are to plow a path for others but to recognize. WHO's around us? And how they're doing it in order for to be absolutely elite beneficial and they can just be real powerhouses which is great. Now they long to hear you will not be but trade and the amazing mazey news for them. As Christ was the most betrayed. He absolutely understands what that was like and he will not betray nor forsake us then last but not least is the type nine my type. The peaceful mediator. We fear being in conflict any kind of tension or discord being shutout or overlooked looked losing connection and relationship others we want inter-stability peace of mind and harmony now our core weaknesses sloth and this isn't about a physical laziness though we do like cozy comforts this is about remaining in some kind of unrealistic or idealistic world in order to keep the piece remain easy going and not being disturbed especially by our inner anger that we try to suppress seat we fall asleep to our passions abilities. He's desires and needs by merging with others abilities desires and needs to keep the peace and so we lose ourself in that process. Since since if you ask a nine what would you want to do in five years. Or what's your goals in life or. Where do you want to go to lunch today? We're going to be like I don't know what's yours in will merge with you because we just want to keep keep the peace we wanna make people happy And the where we long what the core longing we have is to hear your presence matters because the nines is mind believes that we are presence. Doesn't matter art gifts talents. Anything about us is less important than anyone else. And so he kind of hide those things things from ourselves and others to merge and make others more important but Christ satisfies as core long because we met her so much he he left his throne to live hard life to die and a rise again all because we met her to him to bring us back in relationship with him. I don't know anything anything else that can say your presence matters more than that and there's the last three. Yeah wow so good. Oh my goodness well we could talk so much about this and I can't wait to continue our conversation in the next interview though episode that we're going to be doing here in the living room but what would you you say to that person who would say I I don't know where I fall. What would how would you encourage them and again again? You know this this May or may not be for everyone and I want to say that upfront but a Deuce do want you to know that Those of you listening that there Willie is value in understanding ourselves. And some of us are hyper self-aware almost to a point of damage because we're constantly constantly looking inside. I kinda followed that. Carry back. Category others of us are really were completely on self-aware and so how can we start. Where should we begin? Yes so they can go to your integral coach Dot Com In the upper right hand corner is our free assessment..

Is My face stronger today to believe for more by Trescott more today than I did yesterday and unfortunately my faith has never grown until it's been I've been pushed into places.

God I like well okay. I certainly don't WanNa WanNa miss out on the mystery in the adventure on the other side of surrendered. Yes I don't I don't want to shortcut. That really. Do only have one life here at least on this side any kind of like. Why would I want to quality control that one I know? Isn't it funny. How we keep thinking we really are wiser than the Lord? Yes but the thing that amazes me is as we say the Yes. His grace's released on on our behalf in Abel's us to do the things that we could never ever do on our own.

"Well if you're like I used to dear friend you know that you need to get into gods were but you really don't know how to do it or where to begin well for me. My love for the Bible started in women's Bible steady as a young pastors and I'm so excited to share today's interview with one of the Best Bible teachers. I Know Jen woken. Jen has a passion to see women. Love God not only with their heart heard especially with their mind as they steady. God's Word in meaningful ways here's our conversation. I am so excited to have Wilkin. Wilken with can is an amazing fiber studied teachers. Season author folks like women if the word how to study the Bible of our hearts arts none like him in his image and then we'd personally done several of her studies including sermon on the mountain. And right now we're in God have been covering it and so so powerful. Jen I am so happy to have you with us. Welcome to the living room. Thanks Joanna so nice to be on on the end I I was telling you before we got onto. I feel like I kind of know you because I just spent the morning with you and our own Bible study so powerful powerful much better hairstyle in in the version of me. You were watching this morning. You're our snapshot so so we can put it in the show notes. US kind of it is kind of Nice to have the edited version of us the world rather than the Tuesday morning version while you are busy busy. Not only do you write right and speak. I'll all around the place that you're also on staff with the village Church House a little bit about your position yet. My current role. There is the director after a classes and curriculum as part of the village Church Institute so I have responsibility for all of our adult classes and the largest portion of that would be our men's and women's Bible Studies. Wow I love it and so I I think that's so neat because like for me. A lot of my writing has coming out of my ministry at the Church that we serve. But how's that. How's that work in your life? You find yourself kind of writing studies I use and then discerning whether or not they should become polished or is that just a the process that you used right your studies while it's it's been interesting. The studies that I have have made available thus far have all been sort of the product of either my teaching in a living room or teaching Para Church on texts and when I started started on staff at the village in this role we started writing collaboratively ammon I asked the The managing editor on the project. What we're doing is really formulaic? And so they have a very similar. Feel to what I was writing when it was just me writing for the studies that were happening As part of my Para Church Ministry. So I don't know in terms of publishing I honestly I never thought I would publish any of it and Wisconsin just making it available for free and that's something that the village continues to do anytime we put out a new study. Say they place it on the website. You can find news it. I'll out that generosity. I think I think God really blesses that so. I'd like to dig a little deeper. You never thought that you would be a traditionally published. No I didn't I ahead no and I certainly never thought I would write a book I had discovered blogging as a means of communicating additional content. That I hadn't had time to teach in my Bible study that it could be a teaching platform. It sort of made sense for me as just sort of an online bicester processor assessor thoughts. I didn't really have a good feel for that But then as soon as I was like Oh wait a minute. This is the way that I can take forty five minutes of teaching hat and turn it into a much longer time period. Which is what the teachers secretly always wants I started using it for that and then also to address Parenting questions that were bubbling up through some of the were forming relationships with at the church at. I didn't know how to check the statistics on it. I didn't know how to know if anyone was reading it or not. And over time it developed a following and that that ended up leading to a through through several different things leading publisher. Just calling me and asking me if I wanted to right. That is so cool. That is so cool. So how how do you do all that you do. I mean because you also have a family. Does that look like because I know there's some girls that are listening that are on there in ministry either Ole time were part time your own tier basis and that can always be a challenge of. How do I balance working? How a mystery and and just even intimacy with God? How's how's that all that for you? Oh It's been just so easy. Joanne I mean has green I am now. We have four children who are now grown My youngest went to college in August so he's just finishing his freshman year and and so My entire life as a mom I was either participating in or creating teaching I will studies for women and And either working part time or full time in some a ministry capacity only fulltime recently and a lot of that is just has been due to you. I think most of our women listeners would attest to the fact that there are just not a whole lot of full-time roles for women in the church at teaching writing curriculum. So I'm thrilled. That that has turned into a source of full time employment or maybe understand it still pretty rare out there right But it's always been pretty much fulltime concern whether I was being paid to do in in any way or not and when the kids were little the only way I can describe it is that it's felt like a compulsion for me. It's the thing that I know. The Lord has given me to I do and my husband recognizes at and has always been extremely supportive And not only that but I always like to mention that he did not travel aval like his job allowed him to be home no at at about five thirty every night so I had a ton of support with the kids and certainly in the evenings and on the weekends and then also has been who has just completely bought into me doing my thang. Isn't that waxing that is so I have seen Covering and I just. I'm so grateful. Thank you not take it for granted. Oh it's IT'S A. It's a game changer. In terms of just what you're able to actually commit to do and Your ability to focus on it and I always think you know I think sometimes there are younger women and he will ask me that question of how did you balance and what what. Sometimes the question behind the question is is. was there a cost your family associated needed with you doing ministry and And if so how did you. How did you try to get rid of that ost and and and so oh I do always like to point out to those younger women that there's always a cost a cost to anything that takes time went? We have a small families and even growing families. But that doesn't mean that you aren't willing to pay. It means the way it and decide what what is worth your time. And what isn't and and when it came to the ministry commitments. Our agreement is a family was this is worth it and then because we've said this is worth then. As even as the children grew our whole family mullaly worked together to make sure that when mom was gone on Tuesday nights teaching that everybody their homework done managed all their own stuff got to bed on sometimes it became a family effort instead of just this. Is Mom sing that she does. I think that's so good so important to you and I think I think that there might the some young women or even other women her like that. I don't have that kind of support in exit. You can really rub is is the wrong way but I. I found that for me. At least my schedule is limited and God himself. Kind of put those Romans on me and but each each time An opportunity comes my way. I've learned just bring it to John. Empty go we pray. Ask for what he thinks. And as as I've been willing to kind of submit under his leadership I feel like that's read him less everything thank I too and if there is something that doesn't feel comfortable with I've learned to listen to you. Is your husband been a little bit of that Saudi Ward for you as well. Oh He's great. He's great about all of that and he's he's also a truth teller with me like he's the one who you know he. He knows that he's the one you have to say. Hey you said this. Is that what you really mean. Someone else might not be willing to challenge something. I mean the Lord knew exactly who I needed to be married to. And he's very good at At keeping me this balanced and and focused and at the same time time Looking at the particular gifts that the Lord has given me and celebrating them instead of know seeing them as some sort of potential threat. He has always been. I'm like. Oh my gosh. The church needs this. Our family And that's just been a really thing to see with him but really we all have different cities and we all have different stages of life that we go through and we all have different marriages and all of that impacts our ability to say yes they know two different things and those things are typically changing over the course of our lifetime so what might have worked five years ago may not work anymore now so there's always a a an ongoing in conversation between us about what what makes sense now versus will sense not even two years back. That is so so good. You know I feel you like it. There was one thing that just kind of is an overarching theme in and what you do in the fighting Christ is just creating a hunger for the word of God and I love that NASA is listening to you actually last week teach in the gun at the Covenant. Steady You you got choked up. That'll several points through the steady and I can't even tell you how much that hatched me because because I think we so desperately need yes we need biblical literacy that we need that the word of God coming a liked liked to us in attached at those deep places. Can you talk about that. How do we study the Bible with both our hearts in our minds? I think that when people start talking about reading the Bible as an exercise of the mind when they start thinking about What it means to think critically about what they're reading in in terms of just like weighing when I idea against another or even looking for Adam to some of those basic things that you would do in any line by line approach approach that it can feel like it's going to be a clinical or a cold practice.

"Us to be you're listening to the living-room podcast with Joanna Weaver Episode Sixteen so we all felt it I know you had we immediately have a fight reflex or maybe a flight reflect maybe we just freeze we don't know what to do with that person just did or said some of us we just kind of back off and we just shut down and we kind of just have a slow simmering anger others of us what we turned into like a one man justice league complete with an outfit working advantage all evils all wrongs done to us and everyone we love but here's the reality oh you guys we know we need to forgive that's what God has called us to as Christians yes there's going to be injustice there's going to be unfairness Are GonNa be wrong really really really wrong some of you. I know who are listening you've had abuse in your past some of you have been violated needed some of you have been betrayed some of you have been abandoned some of you have been slandered and that hurt if it's not dealt with can really really destroy our lives the Jesus is offered as a way to be free of what people do to us and it's the HAP- forgiveness I know I know just the word just the word makes some of us just kind of recoil because we're thinking Joanna you have no idea what gone through how could you ever asked me to forgive but you guys I'm not asking you God is God is the next couple of solo episodes. I'm going to be talking about what do we do when life treats US unfair how do we handle offenses because you know what I really believe that as John Bibby your calls it it is the bait of Satan and his number one ploy to take us out as Christians in luke seventeen one Jesus said it is impossible that no offenses should calm things are going to happen this fallen world surrounded by fall and people were going to be hurt but what we do with that hurt is going to determine our destiny that great Cuervo is scandal on and it can mean snare or stumbling block but the original word refers to the part of the trap that holds the Bait boy isn't that true that temptation to be offended is so tantalizing it almost feels irresistible as if it's impossible apple for us not to be offended in yet while we can be hurt what we do with that hurt really depends on our choice because here's the deal forgiveness isn't a feeling it's a choice and if we do not we do not follow all of the commands scriptures to that hurt is going to turn into resentment that resentment is going to turn into offended spirit in a hardened heart you know I think sometimes even as Christians we struggled to forgive because we really don't trust God and that's that's where this whole topic has come from I been writing about the unaffordable heart of Jesus in how we need to cultivated in our lives in yet it starts here it starts with forgiveness the boy there isn't there something within us that resists that I know I felt it in my own life I think sometimes we we don't Wanna forgive because we really I believe that people have ruined our lives that their choices their actions have disqualified us from God's best we don't see how God could redeem it but oh my goodness you guys got specializes in taking everything that the enemy meant for evil and working for good think other times we feel obligated to be offended to be angry you know somebody needs to make that person pay but instead it's us who's pain forgiveness sometimes feels like we're saying that what they did doesn't matter but that isn't the truth you guys listen what they did was wrong but forgiveness is simply resigning our position as judge jury and executioner and we're giving not only the hurt but also the person over to the only righteous judge that has got but I think also we struggle because in hand that person over to God we're secretly afraid that he might do what he usually does and that is be merciful and like if that person actually repented he would actually forgive them and that just doesn't work for us but you know what God takes forgiveness very seriously not just because it re Alexa our heart towards him what he's done for us but because I'm per guinness literally eats away at our sole physical issues depression critical nece negatively judgmental nece an inability to have healthy relationships. You know here's the problem with picking up an offense and offended heart is easily offended it infects other relationships secondly were not just mad with one person we're Mad with the world seems like everybody is lining up to hurt us so we build up walls that's what an unforgiving heart does but problem is it might protect us from people but also keeps us away from guy in case you wonder what God thinks about forgiveness will Jesus include edited in the Lord's Prayer in Matthew six nine through thirteen in first twelve he invites us to pray he gives us a pattern of prayer you should pray forgive us our debts as we also have forgiven our debtors in case we didn't realize how important it was he closes his teaching on the Lord's prayer with I fourteen fifteen with these really pretty straightforward words for if you forgive men when they sin against you Jesus says your heavenly father will also forgive you but if you do not forgive him in there since your father will not forgive your sins who I know that's that is tough talk isn't it especially in the face of our hurt but it really comes down to this how forgiven to you want to be because with the major you forgive you will be forgiven boy I tell you I I understand how hard forgiveness can be I walked through some pretty hard times in my life some betrayals that I believe the enemy wanted to take me out he wanted to destroy not only me but my friends I write about one situation in my book having Mary Spirits allowing God to change from the inside out and talk about a time when just the enemy got in and caused divisions in some of my closest friendships a team of women who had faithfully served alongside of me in women's ministry but a little seed of discord we begin to love our opinions more than we'd loved each other and all of a sudden all of my closest relationships imploded and I was so hurt it so unfair in yet in the process of just bringing that hurt Jesus the Lord Begin to reveal some things in my soul that he Senate to heal yes what had happened was unfair it was not just but by holding onto unforgiveness I was not only binding my friends as the Bible says whatsoever things are bound on earth are bound in heaven but I was finding myself how much better how much better are you guys to bring that hurt to Jesus because here's the thing forgiveness isn't.

I I have watched you with your your biological children and watched you raise them and then I've watched you with these foster kids who you've made your own and it's such a beautiful thing I know it hasn't been easy but it is a beautiful thing to behold and out of that has come a book that that is really important and I am so excited to talk to you about calming angry kids because you know as we've discussed over the years I although you were like this calm and it's not a very Christian term but I'm just gonNA use it anyway. You were calm com kind of zen mom. That's not necessarily my story. I don't think that my my kids would call. Call me a calm mother. Now I have been a mother that has been changed by the Lord gratefully but I've struggled and I'm going to share a little bit of my story story.

"Was responsible for a whole whole bunch of different things and a lot of step was on my plate and to be honest I felt a little overwhelmed but God was so good to give me the strength to complete all of those responsibilities and yet afterwards. I just felt like a hit a wall. Have you ever had that happen like just <hes> things are going great but then Bam there you are and you don't quite know how to get over it or under it or around it. All you know is that you feel a little bit stock in I had still had some really important things that I needed to get some forward movement on but I it was like I was slogging through wet cement and I just couldn't get any forward forward momentum. You know sometimes discouragement stops small and it's just kind of that niggling thing and we're able to distract ourselves with business but if we don't if we don't deal with that discouragement sometimes it can start to grow until it's like a heavy cloud. The dictionary defines discouragement as a loss of confidence or enthusiasm and boy. Did I feel that during that time I think all of us have those times in maybe even today's Today's one of those loss of confidence and you don't feel too enthusiastic sort of days. What do we do well? I was reminded of David and the story that's told in I Samuel thirty he and his mighty man had experienced a great victory for when they got back to their village they found it destroyed and all of their children and wives stolen by raiders. The men were so upset so overwhelmed with grief and anger in discouragment that they actually talked of Tony David. You know I try to put myself in the place of David I. I think that I would have been a little bit upset with them. After all. I've done for those guys they were turning on me. I mean he was dealing with his <music> own discouragement his own grief though owned heaviness of responsibility of this terrible tragedy I love what bursts six tells us but David strengthened himself in the Lord and I oh I think that's what you and I need to do on those days where there's just a little bit of discouragement in on those days when we have hit a wall of discouragement that just has left us fallen flat. We need to number one get alone with God. I think that that's how David strengthened himself in the Lord. I found that it's really hard to strengthen myself in the Lord in the middle of life. I need to get a loan with him and then I need to pour my heart out to him. I guess what you guys he can handle. He can handle it. He can handle our pain and our confusion our frustration and fear even our anger he can handle all our questions but we can't and if we keep all of that bottled up inside if we don't pour it out him it's GonNa come out. Sideways girls and it's not gonNA be pretty. I think that I could probably say that from experience. Discouragement bottled up will come out in some sort of negative way so get alone with God but the number to invite God into the equation you know. I think a lot of my discouragment comes from the fact that I believe the lie that I'm all alone and it's all up to me. I have to figure out I have to figure it out. There's no one to help me in. No wonder I'm overwhelmed discouraged because here's the deal my wisdom Kim. My strength is limited but the good news is this God strength and wisdom isn't and he invites us in James One twenty two to ask him for wisdom. The Bible says if anyone lacks wisdom he should ask God God who gives generously to all in the listen to this part without finding fault in other words. He doesn't say hey listen girl. I gave you wisdom yesterday and you totally ignored it no wisdom for you. He's she's not like that instead. He invites us to come to him and ask him for wisdom. In James went twenty two promises it will be given him. I've found that when I get alone with God and invite him into to the equation pouring out my heart to him something happened so beautiful it's as though he helps me to step back from the situation and begin to have the perspective that I need his perspective. I love this graphic that I I saw on facebook. Last year. It was a picture of a ruler or a scale of some sort on the left side and then these words said how big is your problem on a scale from zero to God you know when. And we bring God into the equation and we begin to get his perspective. We see what looks like an impassable obstacle to us is really an opportunity to go deeper with Jesus and to see him move in our lives in ways that we've never experienced before so get alone with God invite God into the equation in the number three declare what you know not what you feel. Oh my goodness you guys. I am a big feeling girl. I tell you what I am constantly dealing with my emotions and if I'm not careful I can I can get caught in the cycle of negative self-talk nursing in rehearsing my my issues and my inabilities my fear and learning that I need to give myself a good talking to emphasis on good kind of like David did when he said why so downcast Oh my soul put your hope P- in God it sounds kind of silly but the Lord has been having me do something a little unusual the last couple of weeks he's challenged me to look in the mirror and speak words of life over myself rather rather than words of death words like you can do all things through Christ who gives you strength Joanna. Oh Joanna he will never leave you or forsake youth. The Lord is your Helper Joanna. You don't need to be afraid in something. Beautiful happens. It's as though that darkness is pushed back in an I find myself standing up a little straighter in feeling a little stronger all because I've declared what I know rather than what I feel number four do the next right thing. Remember our podcast episode with Emily Freeman. I think it's <hes> episode three where she encouraged us to do the next right thing in love. I think so many times when I'm discouraged I get so focused on what I can't do. I miss what I can do so want to encourage you. Look at what's in front of you. You may not be able to accomplish that thing that task that. Net is out of reach right now but there are things that you can do right now. Maybe maybe you need to get out of your bedroom and out from underneath the sheets in go visit a friend of maybe you need to go for a walk or wash. Some dishes break the inertia and the feeling of sickness by doing something do what you can do in the entrust guide to do the rest in finally. I'd like to encourage you to take courage. Take courage because what is discouragement except really a loss of courage. We had it at one time but now it's gone. It feels like the bottom of our hope has fallen out in everything looks black in our inspiration has gone and we don't know if it will ever come back couple of weeks ago my friend to Nokia sent me this conversation that she'd had with God on a text message. It said this I said Lord Lord give me courage. He said take courage. I've already given it oh well. I'll tell you what those words just. Kinda hit me like a two by four up against the head because I had been doing exactly the opposite. I've been asking to help me. I've been pleading I ranked rather than reaching out and accepting what Jesus has already given in John Sixteen thirty three Jesus tells us in the world you will you'll have tribulation but take courage. I have overcome the world while discouragment paralyzes US courage helps us take the next step. Even though nothing in our situation may have changed changed when we take courage we change and girls it's right there. I want you to imagine Jesus just with his hands outstretched with courage with strength wisdom with everything you need for your situation wasted. He's extending it to you and he's saying take it's yours. We're going to have those terrible horrible. No good very bad days every single one of us if you haven't had one lately it's come in my friend but. Rather than giving in to the discouragement I would encourage you to get alone with God invite him into the equation. Declare what you know not what your feel do the next right thing and then take the courage that he offers what if David hadn't strengthened himself in the Lord that day what if he'd given into the anger or given into the grief what if he'd given into despair I didn't realize this but first Samuel thirty and and that whole story of the raiders took place just a few days before saw died in battle in David was crowned King sometimes our greatest discouragements come before our greatest victories and that's why it's so important to push through discouragment with the Lord's help and refused to give into hopelessness and despair Joshua one nine is one of my favorite verses. It's my son Joshua's favourite versus as well. God says these words to Joshua when he was feeling discouraged. The immense task of leaving God's people after Moses died got said to him have not commanded you be strong. Encourages do not be terrified. Do not be discouraged for the Lord. Your God will be with you wherever you go and I want you to take those words to heart today. Jesus is right right here with you. He's holding your hand. He's going to lead you. He's going to give you the wisdom you need. Don't walk this day alone. Invite cheeses to walk it with you well. I hope that's been encouraging to you I now I needed to hear those things again today. Because life can be difficult but we have a mighty mighty guide who's not only willing to give us the strength and wisdom we need but he's willing to give us the courage we I need to do the brave thing the hard thing even if the bravest and hardest thing we do is getting out of bed.

"Tools for living room to grow a space of grace to become everything. God wants to be. You're listening to the living room podcast with Joanna Weaver, episode six. So we're going to be talking about goal setting which may sound strange as this episode is airing in may. But listen, I think we all in neatly have a desire to grow to make needed changes in our lives. Whether it's deludes weight or start exercising to spend time with Jesus or more time with our families. All of us have a desire to be more than we currently are. And I think that's God, given unfortunately, too often we try to do it in our own strength. And if you're like me, I tend to over promise in under deliver to the point that I finally throat, my hands in despair decide what's the use. I'll never change while my friend. It doesn't have to be that way. And I can't wait to share a tool and a method that God's been using in my own life as well as the amazing woman behind it. Oh, you guys I am. So excited to have Lara Casey with us today. She is just an amazing woman of God, but also just an inspiration, she's written, several books, her first one was called make it happen. Surrender your fear take the leap live on purpose. And then cultivate a grace build guide to growing an intentional life. And Laura has actually been a huge part of my life, this year, as I've been using her power sheets to, to really be more purposeful in the way I live, and I cannot wait to share her with you. Welcome to the living room, Laura. Oh, thank you so much. I'm just grateful and elated to be here. Well, you have you, you don't know this, but you have literally held my hand in in. It was just a sweet. Thing. God had just put been putting it on my heart to, to really kind of focus, I was going to have to focus because of working on a book contract and a lot of other responsibilities as a pastor's wife in different things. And I just knew I couldn't just let life happen, rewrite it to be more intentional but to be honest, can I just be honest go for it? Some of the goal setting is so type a driven that it's overwhelming to me, I would probably have to identify myself as a reluctant goal setter. Yes. Because I know what I need to do in. I can even make plans to do it. And yet my follow through just stinks in. So when I found your stuff, and it was so grace filled I just, it's just so grace, build there's this all sorts of room to be human and be. Honest and not is cookie. Cutter gold digger kinda woman, but a just kind of with the Lord's help, and that's the thing I love most about it just inviting the Lord into our goal setting and really finding out what he thinks matters, so that we can live more on purpose. What would you tell us a little bit about your story and how you ended up doing this ministry of cultivate? What matters all for swale have to say you and I are cut from the same cloth. I you know, people always are surprised when I say that I am not a goal person in eight lamb, really not like I am. Exact like even as you were talking about goal setting and goals in general kind of feeling like a type A like to organized for my taste thing. I feel that I mean, even just you talking about, I start to feel like tents and my chest, then going about it. And that's where God, just writes the craziest stories. He really does like something out of nothing. And that's, that's what the story wrote in my life, which is I went to school for music leader. And thought that that was going to be my path and just make a really long story short. He led me to personal training after college instead. So I had just wrestled and felt a lot of tension after college. That I loved performing, a loved the gift of art and music and understand. Ending someone's motivations. And then living that out on stage, but I really didn't like auditioning for my life, everyday just really didn't like the business of the business. And so I ended up becoming a personal trainer and that might seem at first, just like it may seem in, you know, anyone that's listening, your story, these things that we experience, sometimes seem disconnected from our next steps, I think while I went to school for one thing, why am I doing personal training now in retrospect, I look back and I know that the Lord had used my time in theatre to learn about people's motivations so that I could then become a personal trainer and do the same. I learned about what makes someone tick, what is your motivation? What is your, your drive and your fire and life? And how can we bring that out more? And that's really what I do today. So I was a personal trainer for about three years in New York City, and it was during that time that I had a client that came to. Me one day, and he said, okay, I wanna lose twenty pounds because that's what I weighed in college, you know, like that's such a defeating goal to begin with. We set these goals for ourselves that are really pulled out of shame. Like, we think we are to be someone else's standard of what they say is wonderful or something. We may be used to be in the past, and these things are not really realistic or motivating. That's just not motivating. So instead, I worked with this gentleman to uncover a goal that was a lot deeper, deeply more deeply rooted in his big picture vision for his life. And when I got to know him and got to know what really mattered to him, we came up with the new goal and instead of I wanna lose twenty pounds because that's what I weighed in college. The goal became I wanna live a long and healthy life, so that I can walk my daughter down the aisle. Yeah. No. I mean, in here, I am twenty years later thinking about this. I still get chills thinking about the transformation that he had. But here's the kicker. It wasn't just about coming up with a good goal that new goal. The goal that was really connected to something that mattered to him it allowed him to fail. It allowed him to be imperfect, and his progress because he knew that look, no matter how many times I mess up on this, or how many times I wanna eat chicken wings instead of broccoli. I know I'm going to get back up and get back on the horrid because this matters to me. So when you have a goal that's really deeply connected to what matters to you, in the big picture. That's it gives you this beautiful freedom that we know the Lord created us to have to be imperfect because if we had to be perfect, we wouldn't need him. Right. So this to spark something in me in my life. I thought I don't know what this is, but I want more of this, and then fast forward,

He said, oh, the twisting winding way, he's taken me. Yes. Absolutely. But for me, I know it's I think it's deepened my walk.

But it's about sharp a second get it. I'm I a short. I was raised in home where I've always not since my parents became Christians about five or six months old at that point the moment. My parents decided that day glee that tees was and we were in every Sunday Sunday night Wednesday multiple between. And so I've never not known anything, but faith a life of faith in in in God, his reality and affected. He sees for me. However, I had somewhere along the way for my found hood early. Adulthood turned my faith into a transactional relationship. I believe that did everything God wanted me to do. If I followed him didn't. That was right. Void knowledge into Iran than I had the recipe for life. And in all seems like it made sense. It seems like to some extent when I make good choices. I had good results behind of experienced as kids have ever been Hanneman older adult in started to deal with unexpected circumstances things like I net. Divorce single mom in my twenties.

"Perhaps you are wondering why? Calling it the living room. Well, first of all he just loved the sound of it. Because there's room there's room for us to live and become and and explore all the different facets of what it means to be Jesus follower. But it really does come back to the two girls that I've been spending a many many years with Mary Martha. You know, if you're not familiar with them, they're found in their first introduced to us in the book of Luke chapter ten versus thirty eight through forty two where we're told that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem, but Martha opened her home to him. Now, listen, this is pretty amazing because this woman may have invited as many as seventy five people into our home. If the beginning of Luke chapter ten is in any indication. She was a woman moving in her gifting the gift of hospitality. And yet she got so. Busy serving Jesus that. She almost missed out on the opportunity to get to know Jesus. The bible tells us that while Martha was in the kitchen busy getting ready to serve Jesus Mary. Her sister was actually in the living room sitting at the feet of cheeses, taking the posture of a disciple. I'll tell you what this is incredible. When you think about the fact that although women in the Old Testament were only allowed as far as the doorway of the tent of meeting in the wilderness, and then when the temple was built only allowed as far as the court of women to have Jesus actually allow Mary to sit at his feet and listen to what he said this was revolutionary, but Martha didn't know that. Nope. She thought that a woman's place was in the kitchen, and so when she saw Martha Mary enjoying this incredible intimate. Relationship which is she rushed in ask Jesus to tell her sister to help her. But instead instead of saying Mary, you need to go help your sister. Jesus did something incredibly revolutionary he invited Martha tinge or the better part. Her sister was enjoying in the living room just sitting at his feet. Can I just tell you that? If that's what this podcast does for you. If this podcast can be a doorway into the living room away from just serving serving Jesus, but never actually getting to know him while then this will be exactly what I wanna do because there's no higher calling than this offer -tunities sit at Jesus's speed, and it's bound nodding kitchen service for cheeses. But in living room intimacy with him. And so that's what this podcast is all about. I hope you'll join me 'cause I interview gas. As I also do solo shows to sharing things that God's been laying on my heart because you know, what Jesus wants to know you intimately. He wants to get his hands on you and change you by his grace and transform you into everything he met you to be when he created you. Most of all I hope you'll find the intimacy that comes being part of living room community over at Facebook. As just sisters of like-minded faith, join together and share each week about the things we're learning about the topics were discussing on the podcast. You can go to Joanna Weaver books dot com forward slash living room. And you can learn more about joining us over there and Facebook. But until then I hope you'll join me as we learn what it means to sit at Jesus's feet to let us let him fill us with all the knowledge, we need all the strength winning all the lovely need. So that we can get. Go back to the kitchen, so filled that we can be spilled in kitchen service to our world the world God's placed in our realm of influence, but it starts I in the living room. So I can't wait to see you hope you'll tune in. And I hope you'll invite a friend. God bless you guys have a wonderful day.
