"Who is so for those that are familiar we we have our program programming people come that we do things all week at the end of the week. Everyone has the opportunity to give what we call a testimony to tell their story. And most of the time, it's like this I showed up this is what I learned I'm so excited to go home I can't wait. It's going to be amazing and I will never forget your testimony because it was. This is where I was when we came when I came this is what I've learned I have no idea what's going to happen now? Thanks and you log on my show. All right well. We'll see. And the next time I saw you. You're coming back through leadership training and you'd already started investing in other men. Can you talk about kind of what happened in in your brain during that week re said Okay I need to invest in other people in a real way. Yes I will I will try and all of that when I look back. I look back at that time. It's almost don't know how I don't know how I got here. I mean I know you and I know but. That's something that I would say is, how did how did I? How do I get to this point and how did I get from from A to B it's almost like I was being carried. You know without any will of my own but part of the reason that testimony I think was probably so. Void of hope was you know when when I came to the program? Jessie I was I was in agnostic. And to come from. To go through the program as you know. I wouldn't take the leap and say that I was an atheist. So I always say I was an agnostic. The coming out of that program in the amount of information and change in heart that I had while I was there and. You know allow I remember. You know. My Tag, my doctor Ed Tag said, Christina. So they would know how to bear. Any right. And You know I think we've talked about this before but not figuratively, but like I had a Bible I, never really opened. But I, put it in my full locker when I was down range like these things me doing this job here and this book there's no way that those things can operate the same place at same time and it was like the record skipped and. I just never got back there on my own. So there was years of this void between me and God. and. That was probably part of that testimony. How y'all from. Going through in the first time and then back to. Leadership Training. I think it could have only happened this way I re engaged immediately. I came back at that time I think we may have been doing a session every eight weeks or something like that. If I rose yeah, and I spent Gal was I think I was on the next flight as soon as I possibly could. And the third of the next level of training training and that's just that's that's how that's how it went. If there was a lag, I may have not had the discipline. Yeah. Too Much space and time would've would've went as there. But also decimate time we didn't have as many outposts or connections at the time I think actually there was some space and time before I would actually go into a church and always tell us about the assembly impassioned Ron here in broken Arrow Oklahoma. But it's it's crazy I pulled it up on a map from my front door to the front door of the church. Is Three clicks exactly. So I had to go from I had to go from. Oklahoma. From, broken. Arrow Oklahoma to San Miguel California right and back. So someone Osama Gal. Could tell me about the assembly and I give me a wonderful woman named Heather listened to her testimony.

We talk about the FORBE's at mighty oaks being the word being prayer being touch with your cornerman being fellowship and also being church and those four things. I. Look at as the perimeter around mile of ice and if one of those goes down I, got a surface that's now a gap and yeah.

How the North Bay Became 'Wine Country'

"To answer Michael's question about when wine country got start and how it became. So popular, we brought in reporter Christopher Beale Hey Christopher Hay alluvia. So let's start with when wine grapes were first planted in the North Bay. When was that all the way back in eighteen twenty three the Spanish created a mission in Sonoma's. It's the first place where grapes were intentionally planted in wine country but the wine made from these grapes was Sacramento Kinda like alcoholic. Grape juice used in church, not what we would recognize as wine, and then in eighteen thirty s some of the early European settlers in the NAPA sonoma valleys would have grown some basic wine grapes as well. Now, when does the wine country that we think of today start to take shape for the sake of the story let's start in eighteen forty California is ten years from entering the Union and this guy named Charles Krug arrives in San Francisco. Crew was a German after the revolutions of eighteen, forty eight in Europe the comes into San Francisco. It was the editor of a German language newspaper in San Francisco. That's Jim Lapsley he managed agricultural continuing education at UC Davis for more than thirty years with focus on wine-making. Now, after a few years in San Francisco Charles Krug gets married and ended up as a dowry getting quite a bit of land. This is the area just North of Santa Lena where the Charles Krug winery is located considered. It'd be the first commercial winery in Napa Valley. The wine country story is really one about marketing and innovation, and this Guy Charles crew gets credit for a lot of the early innovation and wine country including being the first to use a cider press, which is kind of like a slotted barrel to press wine grapes before that grapes were generally crushed by people's feet. When California entered the union, it was a place where we could grow grapes because the climate was quite similar to the southern Mediterranean. It was dry during the summer it had wet winters and differ grew very well here in California. For, is a species of grapevine. It's used to make wine after the early success of pioneers like Cruyff people began to plant grapes and produce more wind and the NAPA and sonoma valleys. But this was still considered low quality table wine and it continued to represent only a fraction of the US market mainly because it was still cheaper for east coast consumers to import wine. From Europe by boat, then from California by train. But that all changed in eighteen, seventy five, the US government stepped in and increase the tax on imported European wines to twenty cents a gallon which leveled the financial playing field for California's wine producers, and as a result, the wines dig it imported from Europe can be much more expensive wines and oak wine that was everyday drinking. That became the from California. Now. It wasn't a linear march from this moment today. The wind industry suffered a few major setbacks over the years but one way or another managed to survive them. Here's a few of the important ones I wine country was almost destroyed by bugs in the eighteen seventies. This is a microscopic bug that eats the roots of wine grapes. It's related to an eighth fit in it's called. PHILOXENIA. And when it arrived in wine country, it destroyed the vineyards to kill the vineyards and the only way could really come up with a solution was to plant on grafted vines the bottom, the rootstock would be a native variety and then on top graft with Vida's Benifica.

HOT SMOKED HERRING recipe with Niklas Ekstedt

"I'm Nicholas extent. I'm a chef and restaurateur in Stockholm and I run a small little restaurant in the very very center of Stockholm called X. that smile. So it's often my second name so easy. I've chosen this recipe because it's very close to my heart. And it's something that I. Very much love and it's herring. When I was a kid growing up, we always had herring once a week and it was usually something we had in the end of the week like a Friday or Thursday and in Sweden. We also always eat herring as the starter for big celebrations. If it's for midsummer Christmas or eastern, it's always herring and fresh potatoes were small potatoes. This one of chosen because it has a very personal touch to it. So it's hot smoked herring and when I hope smoke stuff, it's a higher temperature I always use birch, but you could do this with. As. Well. So imagine yourself that you're smoking in your regular barbecued could be one of those American similar round grills. So what you would do, you could actually use charcoal and you could add something like juniper branches of Oak or something to it. So you need heat but you also need smoke. And then you just put the herring into the grill and then you let it cook in the hall smoke. What's really good if you have the time is to take the herring out of the refrigerator while before you put it into the ground because otherwise the cold fish will cool down the grilled. So it's nice if you have it room temperature for this recipe will also need little bit of salt. What I do is when I lined the fish in the grill, let the smoke coming I put the little bit of salt on. Top. And I serve the hauled smoked herring with clams and carrots. So when the fish depending on the size of the Haringey could be like approximately fifteen to twenty minutes depending on on the smoke. If it's not done, you can just leave it in the grill until it falls off the bone. And then during that time just clamps or you could cook muscles with it as well. Just Cook them regularly like a moon with some white wine, some onions, and then sometimes I can put some vegetables in there may be carrots or cauliflowers well, and then you serve the cooked clamps with the hot smoked herring. It's so good. It's one of the favorite things right now actually in the fall time. So that's my recipe smoked herring with class.

The Mustang drove off. Somehow. abloh. NATO was able to send out a distress call. Austin PD officers rushed to the scene. Officer Joe Villegas spotted the sixty six Mustang about two blocks away. In the parking lot of the, Travis Park Apartments. Bogus pushed the pedal to the floor approaching the park vehicle at a high rate of speed. As he got closer.

About twenty-five police in at least two armed security officers surrounded the woods. which was estimated to be a mile long and half a mile wide. They stopped dozens of cars and pedestrians. They waited and waited. But David Powell never came out. Just after six am. And we decided that six police to canine officers would enter the woods and go in there and get POW. The remaining police were to maintain the perimeter. They wanted only a small amount of police officers to enter the woods to minimize the risk. They decided that no one else was to enter. They needed a set number of officers only. That way. If they saw any movement at all, they would know immediately, it was not a fellow officer. In other words, they were prepared to shoot on sight. The two dogs and six officers entered the woods with flak jackets and loaded shotguns. To armed security guards who shifts ended hours ago but decided to stay and assist the police in any way they could. Now. Decided, it was time to call it a night and let the police do their jobs. Guards Charles Howard. Gary Nelson. We're now near Travis high. When they spotted movement. The two guards with pistols drawn move slowly toward something they saw moving in the bushes. A man crouch down trying to conceal himself. At a distance of about three feet, one of the guards a stern voice instructed the man to come out. Before standing up. The man said, loudly, his voice shaking I'm not going to do anything. And he slowly emerged from the bushes. The guards handcuffed him and called the police.

Gender reveal party sparks large Californian wildfire after pyrotechnic device ignites dry grass

"The original pandemic Gender reveals. Maybe just maybe we got the vaccine this weekend. Maybe they will never bother us again because one of these unnecessary reveals is now the cause. Of one of the huge wildfires lodging in California A couple dragged its family to El Dorado Ranch Park on Saturday and brought with them a quote. Smoke generating PIRA device surveillance video shows the device being lit and then people scrambling to find water to put out the flames. The fire is now over 8000 Acres big, only 7% controlled. The video has not been released yet because there's an ongoing investigation now. Everybody involved apparently has been cooperating with officials. But the guy or the woman, the person who actually ignited his device could could be charged with a crime here and held liable for the fires. But the moral of the story is just stop doing this. Stop hitting golf balls. Stop letting off balloon that choke birds. Just stop it. Just tell me what kid you're having. And let's move on. I got to tell you. I have so many thoughts on this number one California has been like the inside of a pizza oven for like, three weeks now why you would drag anybody to a park to do outdoors These days? Your gender reveal in California is anybody's guess. Like 118 degrees. Yeah, everybody. Let's go outside. To go to the steam bath toe burn to a crisp that you know that we're having a girl. I mean, could you imagine how how completely thoughtless this is for your family lift, drag you to a park outdoors when it's 180. Number two on the outside to make a baby. I don't want to be able to find out what your baby is Number two. The gender reveal stuff. It's so overboard. But now we need pyrotechnics. Now there's a some oak freaking machine, a smoke machine. You need a smoke machine. For this. It's already over the top, dragging everybody to a park to learn. Who cares. You're having a baby. Whether it's a boy or a girl. The baby will be loved. The baby will be adored. That's what people do with babies. Thankfully, it doesn't matter what gender you have, and I've got to go back to my own wife. Because

Deep Valley Red Blend 2018

"Day. From. Sheep flying, find it Ascom again. Today we have. Five ninety nine red blend from trader Joe's The teat. Surround Low Sarah. It goes by the name of. Deep Valley Red Wine Blend Mendocino twenty eight teams. Normally Five ninety nine red wine kinda scares me a little bit because. You expect a few things out of red wine some oak aging some. Just some general aging. There is no budget applied ninety wine and a white wine. A little bit different like a Soviet block, a young savvy blockers young. They just make it. Right -Chusetts fresh. Lines good there. It doesn't that doesn't need to cost a lot of money. Learn, you need to do a little bit too and so it's always a little bit scary but I think they spied it's actually a food. Wise. I think it does better. With burgers or like a steak burrito does. On its own and I'm fine with it not the most malicious wine ever taste taste fine. But it's you know it's pretty pretty good. It's made by one of the oldest wineries in Mendocino. If you ever want to know who makes these winds for trader Joe's or any other Any other store where they don't really tell you what's what? Trademark. Registry. Website you get in there within our. Trademark lackadaisical it has come up. But. That doesn't mean that's a one that winery comes up would ever make on their own these custom crush people trader Joe's goes down and says, I want a wine like this at this price. They think, yeah. Okay. We can do that but it might not be a wine that they would ever do on their own. So don't read too much into who makes other than if they make good quality wine. They're probably not skipping on the quality that. They held back. And that's that and this is. It's a good ninety, nine Tuesday night. Pizza, burgers. Fine for them is this really well. You Know Harry. You go in and out Burger, we don't have it ended up Burger Chicago. It picked this would go great with that. There's another thing another observation about trader Joe's wines, and here's a five, ninety, nine wine from a single Aba. Under ten dollars. Californian the label which means that the grapes come from all over. It comes from the North Coast Central. Coast Central Valley. and. That's usually because to make wine cheap you gotta have. A lot of it. You gotTa make. Five hundred thousand bottles. And these big wine corporations do that they'll have holdings everywhere and you know they own vineyards contractors everywhere. So to make the most of their money and utilize scrapes pick from all over but trader, Joe's isn't like. They, go to a single ABA. And you don't know out of this is a single vineyard wine but not that, and there are a lot of vineyards in. In the Mendocino but. You know usually when these cheaper the winds are the simpler things is way to happens. You know they're not be off. You've got to bring in grapes from twenty seven different. Vineyards that might happen but you gotta figure cheaper just to grab one or two. So. To storebrand. You get a much more exclusive line for cheaper price than you do in a retail line. But you don't really know what you're getting basically. You're taking a chance but you get these single ABA wines and he don't know who's making what where, when all the time. But. If you go the trademark website, find out who's doing at Subic meals. Usually go because a lot of times these people. Make. These winds for trader. Joe's whatever their own brand self, their thirty five forty dollars. Make wines I mean it's. Just happen to have some extra great somewhere getting their hands on something. And you know trader Joe's better for. So. There you go. You got the deep sally you red wine blend from. Five, ninety, nine crazy price. There is some. You know it's It's a twenty eight. So it's fairly young for Redwan. Super Young read one.

Minnesota's boreal forest is a climate change hot spot

"As climate change unfolds we're learning that warming is uneven temperature records show distinct climate change hotspots, and northern Minnesota's among the fastest warming areas on the planet. Minnesota's iron range and Canadian border counties have worn more than two degrees, Celsius or three point six degrees Fahrenheit since eighteen ninety-five. That's twice as fast as the twin cities and the global average of about one degree Celsius. How is that changing Minnesota's Flores Lee? Froehlich directs the University of Minnesota Center for forced ecology. Highly Hi, fall good to be with you. How quickly do force react to that kind of temperature change there already reacting the seedlings of Red Maple and Northern Red Oak. And a few other species of trees are already spreading in places like the boundary waters that is enough of a temperature rise that those species which are from southern Minnesota in central Minnesota are moving into what we call the boreal zone, which is the very northern part of Minnesota. Where normally it would be so cold that you wouldn't have anything other than Birch and Aspen and conifers like spruce, and for let's say I'm traveling up in northern. MINNESOTA. What should people look for to see the forest changing? Well if you drive the highway. From Virginia to Ili. Say in mid September. You will see a lot more red there because red maple has expanded quite dramatically there does that mean it's a less favourable environment for the coniferous trees also, we don't think so not yet. That hasn't gotten warm enough to start reducing the growth or to kill the conifers but we do know that if it does warm up another degree Celsius, we might start seeing mortality and reduced growth those coniferous trees when I travel up north I the a lot of these dead birch stands across northern Minnesota. Is there a climate connection there? Yes. There is a climate connection. Now Paper Birch is very sensitive in this case to warming soil temperatures in summer. So just the fact that springs are a little earlier and falls are a little later means that the soil has more time to warm up during the summer and you combine that even with mild to moderate droughts like we had several of between two thousand and two, thousand and ten, and you get a Lotta root damage do these changing forests affect our lakes in Minnesota yes. with fewer conifers and more deciduous trees. The chemistry of the water that percolates through the soil and end of the lake will be different because. The full edge when it falls off, the trees is less acidic for things like Maple and oak that would be for spruce and for so the chemistry of the water will be different. Probably that will lead to more nutrients in the lake and US in a small enhancement of the amount of algae and so on that what grow in the lake in your work as you look ahead, what forest trends will you be watching for the next five to ten years and beyond? Well, we'll be watching the sea of. The maples and oaks continue into invade. The boreal forest will also be looking for wildlife species like deer and Bobcat, will they continue to move in and replace Moose and links? There are also somewhat climate dependent So a lot of interesting things to watch for

"Can have the best advice the best information but if that person like I could sit and talk to someone about Christ all day but if they don't believe then I'll missing the mark right so you always have to get in there and really see what's important to that person and then you attach hope to that What's important to them? And I and then you start building from that and you allow them to tell you you know Why is this important to me? What values is so huge? Is it my family? And then if they have a a perspective that will be better with absolutely. Then you go okay. Tell me about that. So the biggest thing for me is. You can't be scared to talk about eating suicide. You got to get in there okay. Let's talk about this. You want to you know kill yourself. What is that GONNA do? People be better really. Let's talk about them like let's talk about your children you know and I've gone as far and you know it can be a little unorthodox but I've had people -magine sitting at your funeral. You took your life. Well people say you think they're gonna be happy you know and that leaves such a hole in every single person who was attached to that individual because it always leaves us thinking. What more could I have done? What did I miss and so it is our responsibility to? If we're the person thinking about you know taking our lives or not having hope or I'm so low It is a responsibility there to really start seeking the help. Not Sitting in that Piece but I know you have to attach hope to something that is important. That person does really good. I I think often Asked this question a lot and I have given answers that question but a lot of times it is. This is why you have. This is why you should have believe. Oh Yeah yeah the idea that you have to attach it to something to family to. Yes whatever's important to them. It could be their dog. You know me realistically if they love their dog and it's like let's talk about And you know I don't make this smaller little at all but whatever's important to that person and it might shift the bid but you really have to find out what it is and You know and I think all of us to some degree have something we can attach it to even if it's so small you just keep building and building and Shaw in that person been understanding. What the purposes For their life purpose and you tie that to identity without those there really is no reason to move on absolutely right. If you're missing those make sense so you have a person who feel that way. All of this just makes so much sense. Yeah yeah appreciate it. Yeah that's a good conversation is What would you tell a woman who is on the fence about going to the mighty Oaks Women's legacy program? We've got another one coming up in a month or so right. I think July July. Let's I think the biggest part is women feeling like they're alone. The only one the only one. I'm the only and you'll find out mighty oaks on the women's legacy program that you'll find a sisterhood. I don't know what happened with this last group. A ladies man they have connected. And even if you're a person who doesn't even like all of that you'll find that there's not a lot of pressure that you have to do those things but the richness of the material The teachings the foundation of the teachings. I go every single time I've been gone for three and a half years now and I learned something every single time and it I sit there and I'm like 'cause even as a facilitator we sit through just like everyone else every single time and there is not a time like oh. I hear that different So sometimes I know coming in but But no no that you're not alone Know that you know always look at will if it's not what what are you doing right now. You know if it's not working why not try something else in this could be that different for us? Nothing absolutely have nothing to lose at all. You just come out. You should listen but I guarantee you though you won't walk away without learn something and you'll honestly what I saw in a lot of lady say is even if your experiences. I've never seen women who are so true and so loving and so caring and they are real and so you don't see this Cattiness is just women who love women and WanNa take care of women as as a even if you get that experience and we find a lot of women who come who don't like women because they've had really negative experiences women and you will come here and we've had several times like I've never seen women who really care about you and you do get that here with mighty oaks so just just come.

Your I like to tell us you Saana. I'm just here to make her look good. But we all know that it's the other way around But you are the again among other things. You're the director of the mighty oaks foundations women's legacy program As we get started and again I want to talk specifically about some things that can just be a help to women but we need to kind of frame that I and so on the platform of our program and what it is and what we do and then beyond that some maybe advice that we would give us that. We generally advice that you would give to ladies who are struggling perhaps in some areas. So why don't you start by talking about the women's legacy program what it is Who we serve the process that what it looks like What someone could expect it? They attended and then we'll go from there okay. are women's Legacy Program for the mighty. Oaks Foundation is a faith based program. And they're really. The premise of it is Presenting the bill blueprint of the woman that God created us to be. We serve a very broad spectrum of women which makes is pretty unique We have Ladies THAT COME TO US. That are first responders veterans active duty military and spouses of any of those and so it really is an interesting environment. And it's a very I think it does make us unique. I said We I believe are maybe the only program for women that kind of encompasses all of those those roles or those And we would say. All of our programs are men's program as well that we are the same demographic Veterans active duty servicemembers first responders or the spouses of those. But just the numbers being what they are on the men's program. We'll have maybe a spouse. The first responder or a veteran Every few program sites on the women's side just again just because of the numbers It really breaks down to probably about fifty percent Is that right? Yes houses and then the other half would be veterans. Perhaps active duty servicemembers. And then maybe a spouse also one of those other things. Yeah I would say when we first started. It was mostly spouses and a couple of veterans active duty military ladies now. It's probably that it's probably a good half that come to our They come to us to our programs that our spouses and then we have active duty and veterans. Now what we're starting to see a little bit of as well as ladies. Bowl have their spouse and veteran or they're active-duty still so that is a pretty unique and it's very interesting to try to serve. You know that whole spectrum of of ladies and was someone can really expect when they come to us is. I think maybe not what they think about when they first signed up to come to the program and so that always makes it really interesting. That woman signs up. She often hasn't her mind. This is why I want to go to this program. I need this for the specific purpose or to help my spouse or to be more effective in serving community or other people like me and so when they come to us. Their expectations often are one and they find out that it's something else but what they can expect from us is really a Very open honest teaching and relationships from ladies who have been in the same place where they are and I think that is a really dynamic and it creates an environment where women feel really comfortable in start to feel kind of connection with some ladies that maybe they haven't felt before which is really different than I'm having a you know a support group in your neighborhood. I know this from when we lived on base. You know there's neighbors other wives whose husbands are deployed and you kind of find some connection with that. There's kind of some someone else going through this thing that I and this is really unique because we create an environment where ladies are more maybe open to sharing struggles. Maybe something that you wanNA share with a neighbor or A friend group that you have the party you mean the park on base or something and so that's kind of what can be expected when when lease come to us for one of the important aspects of the mighty oaks programs all of our programs. Is that what we would describe this peer to peer program? So it's not a clinician of some kind or therapist speaking to their patients or even a teacher speaking.

"Emphasis is put on or important put on on a personal testimony. I always say does two things number one it gets. What's in your head or in your heart out in front of you just heard it. You just said it and In a sense it has no power over you because when you sit in your heard someone else heard it now. It's out there and one number two. It encourages someone else. I either identify with you. Give them the courage to get something out that they need to get out. Yeah can you help someone without a personal testimony on a I guess it depends on the definition of help And sorry to throw that curve ball in there but I I would say that It's really hard to help someone without one because I think would have helped. Personal testimony does is Con- establish or take down these This wall so once built up you just stout established a relationship. That's just better. I think that's one of the things we've seen again and again and again Is We work with a group of people who by and large are very sheltered kind of stiff arm. They're not interested in people getting close enough to actually help them. And it's funny. How that looks in the veteran community. Sometimes I want people leave me. Alone is where the veteran shirt and the veteran hat and do the veteran thing in hopefully that will keep people away Sometimes it saying well you haven't served you don't know what it's like to be me. You can't possibly understand this. It comes in a lot of forms but the the way that we get through that really quickly is is by that personal testimony. Absolutely and I would. I would also say that. Not only do guys or gals provide the stiff arm. But they go some people go a step further and show anger and hostility. Just so that you won't come any closer and I've seen that as well But the backside of that once they see that you're you're not there for the reasons that they think you're there Man There's growth there is. There's healing there's hope yeah that's Entrust you're talking about Yup. Yeah it opens that door In this is I think an important point for anyone trying to help someone else's is you can't you can't really you. Can you can express concern. You can say I'm sorry for how you feel or what you've been through You know Dr could offer medicine without actually carrying about the person but if you actually want to care and and carry someone forward or help someone move forward. They have to trust you enough to Believe that you have their best interests in mind and not your own best interest in mind and that's really important but transparency is a big Part of that. Can you walk through? What living a transparent life looks like but adding to that trying to figure out how to ask the question. We need to be transparent but we don't need to be overly transparent to where we become reckless. There does need to be. You know some security in our own life in our own relationships. Can You contrast the two? I think this is something I've seen again and again and more and more is being transparent and some throwing all my stuff for everyone to see. We see this as social media and a lot of places in our world right now but it's pretty reckless. If we're not careful it needs to be both. Yeah you know. I think that transparency has a lot to do with character. I think that As as a person views their own character a real simple way to kind of Or good h to kind of look at that is. Hey if I'm one way at work and I'm somebody different at home man. My your take a hit there And so am I being being with my stuff with the way that I am at work versus the way that I am at home values the same. Am I using the same standards and I think once you can answer that question? The level of transparency that you have with people becomes whether at home at work that that becomes more even keeled I think people will see that. I think people will will be drawn to that because I think people are drawn to the truth. Were there They like to admit it or not. People are drawn to the truth and we need to be transparent. Hell folks and we do our best in in the context of our program to do that. One of the things that you said is important as well on this is I think this is what we try to establish for. The men and women who come through our program is is to have a foundation that you can actually build a life on Most folks are doing their best to build and as long as there is not a traumatic event or series of events that comes together to push them off of whatever they built on. They're going to be okay but when the trauma comes into their life the The truth of their foundation or The the strength of their foundation. I guess the right way to say the strength of their foundation is really tested. And so a lot of men and women who come to us They've done their best. They're really trying but they don't have a foundation that they're building on When you go through a difficult time and you have to step back and we try to drag people through this process of looking at their life and figuring out how to build a foundation But for a lot of people who wouldn't come to a program how do you look at Your Life? Look at the chaos of life. Look at the trauma you've been through the difficulty and get down to the foundation and understand. What a real foundation looks like. I'm thinking of your story. And a lot of folks have her testimony but you were a Christian for a period of time and yet. I don't know that your life you'd say that your life was built on the right foundation even after putting your faith in Christ. What's the process that a person needs to go through to look at where they are where they really should be understand who god is and then begin to build on the right foundation? What does that process look like? Yeah that process is number one. I think once you start once you go through trauma or some hardship. I think that trauma or hardship reveals the foundation that you're on because going forward from that you're either it's either. GonNa take you out or you understand this foundation. You're on will carry you forward whether it's people around you or or or just God himself I think that that trauma and or the hardship will reveal that foundation and from that There's a sense of humility that comes with that with the that we have to wrap our minds around and realized that I can't do this alone. I need help. I need others. That have been there and done that to help me along with the understanding what. I'm going through his temporary. I will grow from this so that in the future somebody else that comes along. I can help out in. Pay It forward I think that is constantly going on. And if someone's not honest enough though about where they are they're really gonNA struggle to to have that to begin building on that foundation. We talk sometimes about those who they haven't hit their bottom yet. And this is a phrase that is you know for drug addicts alcoholics and People. Who are behaving badly. You say well. They can't begin to go up because they haven't hit their bottom yet. I think what we really mean by that is they have not come yet to the point in their life where they'll take an honest look at where they are. They just haven't fallen far enough to say wow. I don't have the right foundation underneath me. Yeah and that's a that's a tough one for people that are really trying to help them make because you love that person you want to see that person grow you WanNa do things without enabling And and I think at that point for both parties. The one who's helping one who needs help guidance from God is key guidance like both foundations are key. How do you help someone who is in your family? That's it made bad decisions or they're just really really struggling with something that's happened in their life and they don't necessarily want help. I get this question At least once a week I had this conversation a few days ago. What do we do We Love Them. We can't bear to see what they're going through but we don't know exactly how to help them What advice do you give you a family member or a friend a loved one? Who is watching someone? You know spiraled down and they really want to help them. They just don't know what to do. What advice do you give to? That person I would I see if there is Professional advice you can get from someone who can deal with this. This kind of situation Jeremy I gotTa tell you man. The only the only thing I have to fall back on is my own personal story with my daughter and my oldest daughter When I found out that she had she was an addict and she was in really bad way. I tried to be the hero in that. I try to be the hero in that because somehow some way I pinned. What's what was happening on me. It was my fault I needed to fix it and that really drove me into much like a dark place. It put me in a dark place because of this is what I've done so when I tried to help I realized after a few days. Nine days there's no way and I and I needed help myself Then I realized that after after going through a program of Mighty Oaks and understanding. What a good foundation looks like understanding that can petition a Holy. God to give me guidance Going forward. I understood that I could pray for her. I understood that I could access professional help. That can actually offer her help. In a way that I couldn't So that means I had to depend on people had to an on the end on On God there's a there's a fine line between Pushing too hard and not pushing hard enough. I think particularly parents struggle with that a little bit. You want so badly for your kids even your adult children to do well and so you're just doing this all the time In that tends to drive them away probably more than it helps them. How do you balance balance that? I want them to get help so bad. I can't bear taking my hands off and just watching. How do you balance between the two of those? Yeah I think I know for myself I it to rewire in my mind. What what does it mean to truly love someone and not enabled them? I I had to rewire that in my own. Mind and the only thing I can say is the guidance that I've got from people in my life who truly love me and the guidance that I got from through God's word through just growing in God's words how to Rewire your understanding what love is. Yeah the moment that I started to think that the definition of love comes from other myself. Oh the culture versus what the Bible says about it? I was way off the via with box to your family situation to your kids to the struggling spouse. Yeah I wish I wish I could answer. That was just like pushing a button hat. You can't I I have to number one Surround myself who know more about God's word than I do I need to take advice from them and I need to spend time in the word and I also need to pray so that means to be a part of.

More very small population out of Indianapolis North of Louisville Kentucky primarily farming corn type community and I just had a had a great upbringing. My parents were together through all of my childhood and just very blessed and went to college. I in probably wasn't really ready to go to college. Everyone else was doing it so I did it and about between my sophomore and junior year I realized that it just wasn't a thing for me and I said what are my other opportunities and one of those was military service. I went and checked it out nope and actually took the asthma ham and Actually enlisted told my parents after the fact. Yeah we're quite assures quite a while how to my parents But you know they were a little concerned. Obviously I do all college and so it's like oh now you're going to take on being in the military and and It was absolutely the very best decision. One of the best decisions. I made my life where What did you do in the army for twenty in years so I did a lot of things? But we're star I did so First Duty Station was Fort Polk Louisiana.

Also a radio show and in addition to all of those things a former candidate candidate for Florida's district twenty-one for Congress and we'll talk about that as well so that's one side on the other side served in the United States army something we typically typically hold against our guests. But we won't today. There are other services I learned this recently. It's not just about the Marine Corps although it feels like it should be it's not always just about the marine core but Served in Kosovo and a number of other places transitioned out of the military and has been an advocate for veterans veterans causes serve the VA And a lot of other stuff a life of experience and Michael Really Thankful that you come on and spend some time with us and I look forward to jumping in your story. Thanks for being with us. Thank you so much Jeremy for having me on the show. I'm really excited about being on also the work that Chad's doing and with the mighty foundation we need vetted companies companies out here and organizations that are helping veterans. I was one of the things I did when I was in Virginia Working for the Governor Running Virginia Values Veterans Program. We've vetted companies to ensure that they were veteran friendly. And that's a big thing and I know your organization is doing great things a so very excited about the audience you know being able to talk about the struggles because we have the transition and also best practices that we can use to be better leaders better community leaders and better help this country move forward because without our freedom what are we. Yeah no absolutely start if you would just give give us your background where you grew up and and how you ended up in the army and then beyond that but what was that that process like I'm always intrigued. I think people have not served in the military think everyone who served in the military is there because they didn't have anything else to do right and I for a bunch of times which is ridiculous. I think with as many people as there are serving There are stories tells your story how you end up in the military where you serve what you did while you were are there and then your decision to transition into civilian life and service after the military absolutely actually. I was born in Fort. Benning Georgia my whole families served. I was an Army Brat and My Dad got out of the military and I was about five or six. We certainly Vietnam In the US Kittyhawk was the navy. And then he transitioned to the army Which is not as common today but it does happen but you know back then? A lot more people do that. My grandfather was in Korea. My aunt serve my sister's still serving in the reserves. She served served in Iraq So just growing up in a military family you know you learn those core values but you know my dad had A. I had a very tragic childhood. Actually my father turned to drugs and alcohol You know he just he just like the party you know maybe something. He was exposed to as a kid. You just never know what makes people go through that process and Just you know it's it's not a good quality of life so I grew up in a very tragic environment but also you know I was very proud of my dad. You know he's still served in the military even though you know you abused me mom and myself and you know a lot of just crazy things happen in my life is reported dead when I was five the first time and then the system kept going back so grew up in a lot of group homes and foster homes But I remember looking at you know through his book in the USS Kittyhawk. And just seeing all this you know Navy sailors and I was just like wow these people are heroes. You know as a kid when you grow up in a military story house you know folding your corners on your bed everything dress right dress and making sure everything's up It does teach you something about life and growing up in that environment. Even Dow's very very strict taught me a valuable lesson in action ever thought about being the Mozart. I just I love athletics very athletic. I was involved in sports and just Always tried to better myself and telling myself you know. I never one have this for myself. And my life what I experienced so Graduated High High School. And just you know trying to go to college and you know. I didn't really have a big support channel. You know it was just me as I decided you know what I'm going to join the army and I joined the army and it was you know I want to use it as a stepping stone and You know going into the army obviously. That's a big thing. Any military anybody starves her country. Rated is there right. And it's an honor and a privilege to do that to preserve the constitution and defend the United States of America. I mean it's an honor I mean I. I think everyone who serves as an absolute hero so I went into serve of and You know I went in infantry. They told me there's computers on the Bradley Infantry fighting vehicle so I got a little bonus where they told me. I'M GONNA be working around computers. I wanted to try to learn a skill that I could you know using the civilian workplace when I got out but That's Kinda funny. Though right your office you'll learn how to have my mets officer. They did a good job. Selling Man Yeah you learn how to clean you. Learn how to do a lot of stuff that you didn't want to do in your own so yeah let's get exactly now. They got me but you know what being in the infantry That was a godsend man. I served in the First Infantry Division. I Made Sergeant in two and a half years offline for me WANNA five fast track. It and highly decorated did I was in the Kosovo conflict in two thousand dollars pre and post nine eleven apart of the global war on terrorism spent three and a half years overseas Got An army accommodation medal when I left The military which I'm really proud of you know tons of awards. I mean. I'm highly decorated. I just love our service to our nation. I mean those are probably some of the things that you know. I'll take with me for the rest of my life more than anything else. Besides having children I mean obviously that's a great thing. But so when I transitioned out of the military I was sergeant blooming. You know so it's high speed low. Oh drag you know what I mean. It's pretty confident young man but you know coming back to America after not being in the you know in the states for three and a half years. It's a totally different environment. Arment side a floppy disk. This was I transitioned December. Thirty one zero one so I had a floppy disk in my head. That tells you how long ago it's been since I served in but you know I'm still youthful still still doing spartan races in China stay active Trying to stay fit doing yoga stuff like that but you know it is a grind on your body. You know a lot of people come back. And it's a whole different world world and so I just try to be a great role model and leader for the community and other veterans because not everybody has the same circumstance to go home to not everybody. Body has the same ability to cope with adversity. Or what they seem down range or injuries they went through so my whole focus. Is You know military. Wise is trying. Had to be a great advocate for veterans and support them one hundred percent. Because we don't do that. We're failing as a nation. I we work with the Veterans Active Duty Servicemembers the first responder community. A lot of folks are involved in protecting our country protecting our communities. And we're very thankful for that We are very focused on combat trauma. Trauma related to service and That's an issue. We're involved in every day and we're thankful for the opportunity to do that. It's interesting though. And I I I value your your thoughts on this because we see a lot of folks who would come to our program and they would. I'd say I'm struggling with drugs or alcohol relationship issues or whatever because of my combat service because of my trauma related to combat. I've been diagnosed Melissa Post traumatic stress or me. I haven't been diagnosed but I have a lot of the symptoms. Whatever the case and really when you start to dig underneath a lot of that what you find is combat was president in combat. Maybe drugged up some of the stuff that was underneath the surface but a lot of folks were struggling in those areas Have you you know similar background. I came from a home that maybe classified as dysfunctional or abusive. And so really. What the military does it kind? A brings those things to the surface but in a safe environment. Almost right. You're in a structured environment so it's okay but then transition out and now you find yourself self dealing with your past dealing with your service and then kind of on your own Does that define your your experience or is that something again you work with the. Va something. Oh you've seen and help people process through really the number one thing is meant to worship. I mean when people go through transition the the reason why I I am here today and have been successful is because of you know I viewed as angels that come into my life. I feel like there's always people there in the military community support you. I mean every step of the way of military person you know. Bring me up and I think that's what we need more of in the community. That's the biggest thing but yeah absolutely all my own. I mean everything I've been. I'm doing my tire life. You know I've been grinding and trying to make a better future for my children future generations. You know there's a lot of issues in the community that we have to address as as veterans as as people who are advocates who are social and community leaders and the best way to do this to mentor ship. And you know my philosophy is more of a higher level I seek to. I want to impact millions of veterans. You know so I set out on a mission to you know yes I wanna be. We just had. I'll give you an example. We just had a veteran who had we took away fifteen hundred pounds of trash from his mobile home. His neighbors are there.

I'll tell you this when I looked at the mighty oaks foundation a long time ago. You know what I concluded my wife and I concluded this is a worthwhile place place for us to invest whatever resources God has given to us. No one is asking anyone in this room to do something that they have not already done. And there are people waiting. There are people in need you cross country people are saying. We love our veterans. We want to support our veterans veterans. The question is where can we support. Who can we trust? And what can we do. We're not perfect. We don't get it right all of the time this year. Seven hundred forty nine. You heard Chad next year. Eight hundred eight hundred fifty folks across the country. Those who have served US coming the home to a community of folks that believe in the hope that exists willing to resource it for them guys.

Yeah that was in Baghdad at the presidential palace that picture hanging over my desk and I did then I would look at that picture and I would say something like this to myself when my service ended my time it'd my responsibility ability ended and I'm thankful for what I did but now someone else can take care of these guys nine years later. Jeremy I didn't know is going to be here. Give me a call. He called me up. UPI said I met this guy in Houston. His name is Chad.

Sell the idea what it's about but he's a Christian. You're a Christian. A couple of us are going up to Colorado. Would you be interested in coming. And I said yes. It was kind of a mini reunion for some of the guys that are platoon soon and I think there are ten or twelve of us there. That was back in the days when we were begging people to attend mighty oaks. That's when I met Chad. And that's when I got acquainted with the work of mighty oaks and again and I was serving in ministry. I was pastoring church. I was doing my thing. I was living my life and I was thankful for it. I had done my job now. It was someone else's turn to do. The job had a great eight week week. With the Marines I served with and we sat and talked and one night we went upstairs in the lodge we were in and we sat around a fire and we all kind of had a really intimate conversation station about where we had been over the last nine years and some of the things that we've experienced. I was always so proud of what I had done. And I was always so thankful for what I'd done and the fact that I had done my duty and yet what I learned that night. Is that many of the guys in. This picture. Didn't do so well when they came home. Learn about guys are guys some of them who took their lives. When they came home marriages that didn't make others rotated back and we're in the first battle of pollution were killed there you know? I learned that night I learned learned in a big way. My responsibility to those that I served didn't end when I hung the the uniform back in the closet for the last time my responsibility did not end one of the Marines. He was one of our young marines in that picture. He sat there that night and he said I hated you for ten years. You remember that he looked at me and said I hate you for ten years. So why do you hate us. Hate me he said well you promised to take care of us and then we all came back and you left. We went back to Felicia. And you weren't there to take care of us and I know that I could not have done anything about what happened. There I know the realities of military life and military transition but what I also know is that in a real way I did walk away from those guys and what I learned that day is I have to invest my life somewhere in helping those who have served our country. I had that responsibility..

"Feel like that's that's probably the around the room. I can spot you. It's hard isn't it gets hard. You GotTa look down when when you're doing that. Oh Man I like tonight so you were here. He's been a friend of fern of ours for a little bit now. You're actually had chat on your show and I think that's where all connected and then you had us back. I'm looking invited backer. We showed up but either way either way stations open all the way. We're great and encourage us and I know Chad. Even he'll get every once in while his son hunters deployed and they'll say they're just text me and encouragement that is why is an evening like this where we're trying to raise funds to run a veterans program and and Really disturbed those who have served us. Why is this important to you? I got a message the other day. on Social Media Gasset me thing he said. I'm not even sure if I'm going to hear back back from you're not he said but I want you to know I'm coming home after I've done eight deployments I'm on my way back. Watch your brothers die. He said Gone through the motions of what it would take in my life to load the gun to what I wear. I would put the gun where I would shoot myself these kind of things. I've got small children at home and he said I'm just putting this out there because I think you're a person who understands because you've spoken to these issues and I told him I sent him a message back and I said I'm going to share the message. I think tonight if I get the opportunity with everybody in and I told him I said if you don't get in touch with Chad Robichon at Mighty Oaks Foundation. You're doing yourself a disservice. I I said there's an absolutely no excuse not to reach out to an organization like mighty. Oh there's there's no risk involved warriors and warriors and people who have been right there where you you are this guy. He's coming home here in a couple of months and he's got to readjust. Yeah to to to a life that does that. He hasn't known in twenty years. That story we we were talking the other day about kind of this over the years pushback stress disorder and the combat trauma. Stuff has always been around but there was a time where someone someone would serve. They'd do their tour World War Two Earlier they do their tour. It take them six weeks to get home and then they're reintegrated into community that loves them. Now these guys like the one that you just mentioned for years deploying six seven eight times twenty four hours later. They're home trying to adjust and just the impossibility of that without help. It goes all the way down if you if you take even the out of it. How do these guys are just too? Now they've got to come home and find a career absolutely. They found a life how they normalizing they're coming.

"Oak shows. This is a special edition. We are broadcasting live. At least it's right. Now it's live from the ninth annual mighty oaks gala. That's right Linlin. Sex Waterway Marriott Oss Motel you looking sharp. You're you're looking to fill me inside of your jacket the American flag right inside People always ask me if I have to. I like to say his tattooed on my heart and some mighty OAKS I. It's more internal but you wear on the outside. That's fine yes. This is a big night for us. This is the one big gala we do every year we do it here in the woodlands people may ask why this this is really where mighty oaks was ground zero not Texas but the woodlands Texas. I became the first student or and as we always talk about and and Kathy challenged me and St Tilt stepped in and mentor me and and I stepped into radical and kind of Christ to change the trajectory of my life in in desires. Put on me. I believe God put that burden on me to share that with others in the very first thing we did because we were like one even quite sure where we're going to do but we gotta call it mighty oaks and we're going to pay for what was done for others. We're not quite sure how we're GonNa do it and we. They don't know how we're going to pay for it. So the first thing we need to do is throw a fundraiser. Hopefully some good leaving us to and so the first thing we did was through this mighty oaks warriors gala and. That's why even though it's been you know the very first event that we ever had known as the gala leauge the number of years of my the number of mighty oaks and yeah but I mean I look back and I'm just made sense to me at the time but the fact that other people got around me and believed in that calling him a heart bleed in that mission and actually financially supported us without any evidence of A. We hadn't served anyone yet. It just is amazing to me and and so this event because of that is just so special I mean people. Every year continued to believe in us for the upcoming year. Just like the that first year in and believe in US supporting those warriors and their families that we're going to serve and now we have some evidence so we're talking about some of that tonight some of the numbers. Yeah well we we at three thousand ninety graduates from our legacy program. That's that's a that's incredible number to me in twenty twenty. We're going to be serving another eight hundred eight hundred eight hundred fifty more more warriors legacy program mm-hmm yeah no resiliency side. We've spoken over one hundred. Thirty thousand active-duty troops base around the world in two thousand twenty. We've got a big big target because such demand there her three thousand more that we plan on the plan on addressing and speaking to a resources we've distributed over ninety thousand resources and books so the incredible. Yeah when we think about the beginning and I know early mighty oaks almost begging people to attend. I'm just trying to get them to come people in the military and now we have the applications. We have fifteen hundred and eighty five applications after people come the mighty outrageous. What has happened one of the interesting things to me every year to is how things come back around Steve Toth was your mentor? In the beginning beginning he's now the chairman of our board. He'll give greeting and opening prayer and kind of started and it's just amazing. Some of the people that have stuck with Mario Division for years continue. Melanie help they were they.

"Testimony We were testimony kind of in the church. World did your story In front of a group group of strangers pretty much. It's got to be overwhelming so Why would you do that? What's to you and you've done it a lot? You do it a lot and and you do it well. Why did you do something? That's so armee public speaking they say is you know it's most people's greatest fear above death folks speaking to death but beyond that you're talking about things that you'd probably prefer to leave in the past. So why do you do something like that. First and foremost hormones to give God his glory because he deserves it all because I where I was four years ago when I went to the program a student to where I'm at right now is one one hundred. Eighty degree difference and I didn't do it by myself. I didn't do any of it is. I'm here because God And God provided for me and I always Topol. God pulled me out of the Gutter and put me on the sidewalk so I can walk that path And so I just want people to know that and I think by doing that this kind of that that to part of that is if people are hurting when they hear my testimony and they could just say man where or that guy was where that guy is now. I I want that I want. I want to know who this Jesus is. I WANNA I WANNA be able to have peace in my trial or um you know I want to be able to look at life even though it might be really hard right now or extremely extremely difficult. Unfair whatever the word you WANNA throw in there I wanna be able to see it from a perspective of okay. I can take another step forward. I can keep moving and keep pushing and I can look to eternity and see something and then I also do you it Because one day I want my kids to be able to to know you know what I went through and I want them to know who brought me out and I want them to have the hope I have in that so I think that Can I just if if my story is difficult as it is sometimes to tell if it can help one person see what Christ can do in a life it. I'll tell it a million times you know and that that's incredible. The power of the story is something that again when people say what. What do you guys do? That's different Franson. And how do you do what you do. In such a short period of time and all his questions we get asked all the time. There are a few things we can talk about. Certainly it's the power of God but God uses there's people instead of you know the people that he's using have chosen to to use their stories to bring other people along and a so so powerful office powerful. Because people don't want to do it we want to get something and they just never go back to it. I think you hear that a lot of guys when they when they're getting ready to leave on that Friday when when their their whole countenance has changed and we're talking and one of the things that I hear every single session that I'm at is I didn't think men can tell will the hard things of their life and be that open and transparent about and we need to see that because that's what helped us get over you're ourselves of just one hold onto it if he can get up and share his story than I can get up and share my story and in it you feed off of one another And then I think that's where God uses us. He uses our our tragedy to be something that someone can gain healing. I'm from right and so that that's always been one of the things that stuck out to me. Even as I think back when I went to as a student I remember from day one that opening testimony and I was just like his guy just poured out his soul and his testimony was just deep and he went through some really hard things and just I knew. His life was super difficult fickle and he did not want to talk about those things and he did it and he did it to share Christ with all of us and I'll always always remember that and then as each guy after him gave save their classes and shared their testimonies. It's just it's so much easier when you can see. Hey I was here. I applied this principle and this is where I'm at now. You can't argue with that kind of truth that there's no scientific equation and there's no you know I don't know I'm not a smart person with all those kinds of things right i. Just hey if you're here and you did this and now you're here. That's what I know. I know that one plus one equals two and so. That's it's easy to connect like that was somebody's personal story. Transparency is is absolutely essential. And A we've had folks will come through our program that are in a great it Claes. Maybe they're coming from a church ministry or something and they want to experience what we do and often the takeaway is I want my Men's ministry I want my church group. Whatever that is the same kind of transparency in men in the church need to have the same kind of transparency and be that honest with each other and while I agree with that I do do? I don't know if it's possible outside of the environment created when you're around people who have a very similar story to yours and it safe for you to tell that story because You know everybody gets it. which is one of the reasons we segregate our program again? It's pushed back on that sometimes but when you get a bunch of guys together there's no women in the room. They're going to be more honest with each other and it's the same on the other side to when you get women together and there aren't guys there they can be more honest with each other. You're transparency is is so important but it comes from that environment right yet. I think that for anybody to have to be able to replicate the same the same kind of success that we've had with with testimony sharing in kind of how God uses that to change people's lives and change legacies and the trajectories are things it starts with that safe environment and that's that is again what you get when you put okay. Hey Hey veterans or together with bettering Mongers 'cause we all speak the same language. We've seen a lot of the same things rope and do a lot of the same things and then even the childhood good stuff. You'd be surprised that in our nine. No you're not but I know people would be surprised coming to the program that one guy stands up and says yeah. I had childhood abuse. It's in my life will so to five or six other guys in that group and it happens every session. Where there's there's never one guy who has that problem that you need to only one guy and he can't? Nobody else can relate to him so he goes home defeated because nobody understands. There's always somebody there who oh yes the happened to me too or yes I have been through that struggle or yes this. It's just powerful. How God has done not just really made you know the Scripture I Corinthians ten thirteen mentioned that nothing is common to uncommon demand in that happens every session that is one of my favorite scriptures? Just because I know that what I'm going through whether good or bad is not just Only for Robert All by himself only party all that stuff. No I know I can call somebody and we're going to have a similar. Struggle will be able to work it out together his comment. I think in in two lanes to for military people. Maybe you know maybe but in the first responder community particular law enforcement Sometimes the the regret of the past the trauma the past is really bad decision. That was made. Yeah Y- you know this. You know veterans will often talk about particularly combat employed veterans. We'll talk about. I engaged target down range. I thought was the enemy. Turns out it wasn't the enemy and there was some you know some tragedy that took place because that decision decision I made you know law enforcement. You could have the same thing happen and sometimes people will say I'm carrying something that no one else can relate to. Now you're sitting in a room full of people and people sharing the same hurt in the same pain made the same mistake and and it it validates your feelings in a sense dance but it also makes it so that you understand. I really can move forward from here. So that's kind of on one side but then there's just the stuff that's been done to people and heard uh-huh and the types of abuse that human beings impose on other human beings is it's unbelievable. Yeah and we'll sit on our day where everyone tells her story in here. That story try as dark as difficult as it is For six hours because one person after another. We'll stand up and tell the same story as you know. It's almost counterintuitive to think that that's helpful but it is helped because you you sit there and go. I'm really not alone. And maybe my pain isn't the same as they're paying traumas not the same as their trauma. My heart is not the same as their hurt but they've hurt deeply because someone's what was done to them or a bad decision they made are combination of both and they've moved beyond or they're moving beyond it and then we'll share it and I can't do. It gives hope a really strange anyway. Yeah have had several men at the session. I mean I say several but I'll say more up in the twenties thirties of the guys who tell me one of two things I I don't know if I can tell my testimony young my story I shared. There's too much I don't know how to process all that I'm scared I'm nervous service or not. I'm not doing it. I am not doing it and the guy who won't do it. What always happens is is another guy gets up there? Because he's like that's it. I I gotta get this off my chest. They take it serious when we tell them on. Pack Your Ruck. Don't leave here with a heavy burden and just real quick for me too. That's another another reason why I share my story because I didn't listen to that at mighty oaks. I told a equipped version of my my story on that day. That you guys give us to tell our testimonies because I was scared of all the everything in there and I just I kind of went up there and just gave a brief overview but I didn't get real deep and then I had opportunity to do a podcast with my church and that was the first time I'd ever just laid it all out there. Like I'd seen those men after me. Do you and I began to heal by releasing those things and dumping it out and not having to hold it in and so the guy gets up there he tells us testimony and that guy who was adamant. I'm not GONNA do it. I don't believe in daughter. I don't have anything to do. And that guy gets up there and has the courage to do it and the guys just like okay. I'll do it. And he gets up there and tells the story and you're right and it's just one after another after another and then the guys that are scared to do it. You know we offer to pray with them. We offer them encouragement. We talk to them about the power of testimony and I like to encourage guys by telling them you're scared and sore the other twenty four men in this room that are about to do the same thing you are so was every single one of these leaders that are sitting here with you but you might show somebody that courage that would help them get up. That would help somebody else get up. That would help somebody else. Get up and so I've only seen one time in the four years I've been at mighty. Oaks is a student Anisa the team leader and and now a staff that one guy didn't get up and get his testimony and all the sessions I've into would So we focus a little bit on the.

"Blow. Welcome to the muddy oak show. Money was Jeremy Stalker the executive director of the foundation. Really glad to have you with us today in my guest today is Robert. Kale Robert is the after care manager for the mighty Oaks Foundation. And we WANNA talk about after care for a few minutes today. kind of describing what after carriers and maybe helping to understand the process beyond one radio programs and thankful for the work there before we jump into that though. If you are listening somewhere other than youtube go to youtube check us out there. A lot of great content on our Youtube Channel. Go to YouTube. Look for mighty oak show and you'll find all of our content if you had not subscribed you need to subscribe. If you haven't hit the notification bell please do that let you know and more content comes online and we put this this show on our on our channel but we put a lot of other stuff hundred channels well and we recently started a pledge campaign. And that's still going on if you haven't jumped in on that you need to but we've got a lot of great videos even on our youtube channel about some of the pledges and we're doing kind of ends up there on Youtube. Please check that out and handed. We'd love to share that content with you but Robert aftercare big conversation. So let's talk for a second because people may not know you know exactly what goes into a week of the program we won't spend an entire segment talking about that But but from your perspective talk about the program and how that kind of sets up the steps to a person transitioning out of our you know one of our weeks Programming coming into aftercare. So what happens during the program that requires aftercare might be the better way to address that. Yeah and I think that I mean hopefully the ultimate goal that would require our after care would be somebody coming into relationship with Christ and so that would require Putting putting that person into a Christian community And so you know as they go throughout the week you know and they start learning all the classes and they start. You know opening backup because they've been closed off for so long and they begin to understand that what had happened in. The past isn't is doesn't have to define their life and they start moving towards that better legacy and so for Ross says after care team what what set up is that we WANNA plug them into a church. First and foremost soon. They leave their that. They have a church go to when they go home and they have a Christian community needy belong to you because Here at my job to believe in the promise primacy of the local church and we try to plug is into that because that's where they're gonNA get fed There's not enough. There's not enough of us. Yeah and there's not enough resources for just from mighty oaks alone to carry a guy through the rest of his Christian walk and so we pulgam arguments that church and sometimes we as much as introducing them to the pastors and talking to the pastor or the men's ministry guy a small group leader or something like that so that we can plug a guy in and and get them situated on other thing that happens. There's guys start talking about some some deep rooted issues and things that we we start to uncover and work through through the five days of the program but it requires extra counseling or counseling. That's beyond our skill set and so what we'll do myself for the mentors torch at the program will connect that guy with a biblical counselor and so that guy has somebody to go home to continue working through those issues from a biblical perspective back yet. A lot of the folks who would come into a program you know they come from all over the life spectrum of you know some of struggled with severe trauma children and other places throughout their lives others may be dealing with life stuff and life issues summer doing pretty well with they find themselves in a program so it's kind of all over the spectrum and then you know even from the faith perspective of faith spectrum. They're all over the spectrum. Some WHO HAVE GROWN UP IN CHURCH THEY KNOW CHURCH THEY HAVE A relationship with Christ they understand that you know the versus. They had the Bible and then other people who would come that would maybe have never gone to church or they went while they're in boot camp camp because they had to. They've been for a wedding or a funeral or something but they don't really have connect connection to faith at all and then they're e- even those who are a little hostile alif face a hostile to the idea of God. They seem to take one or two forms. Either reject the idea of God entirely or they say I I. I don't reject God but I I am angry with him or displeased with him or have no desire to have a relationship with him because of you know. ABC Z whatever. Those things are the events that took place in her life. The people have lost the things that they've struggled with and they'll say I don't. I don't want anything to do with God like that. So you You know sometimes. People think that my yolks comprised of Christians and it's a Christian program We have a program but So many of the folks who come to us are not interested in faith or have been hurt by churches or faith or whatever So a lot of ways. We're not starting from zero. Oh with with people as it relates to the faith component that we're almost starting from a negative perspective and you know walking through that with people is extremely challenging. Yeah it can be an a lot of times you know. It's not even the faith aspect of it that people have a problem with its people people in general and so one of the things that we talked to guys about is you know God is perfect and what he stands for his perfect. What he designed us to do is perfect? But you know because of sin and because of the fall and stuff that we have corrupted that and so we can't control what other people will do sometimes unfortunately were the victims of other people's choices sometimes. We're the victims of our own choice. Whichever side of that you know that spectrum that that these guys guys fall on we have to try to help them? Connect that and so a lot of times. I think that the hold up really is just them shorting through and understanding if somebody did something wrong to them that that wasn't God doing that to somebody or to them if it was them and that the consequences of their own choices. How do you go forward from there right? So that all happens in about five days those conversations about five days so someone that has little context or a negative perception. They're dealing with people and their understanding faith. All of the things that happened in five days we walked in through a process so of kind of owning their part of whatever. The hurt is trying to help. Coach them or walk them through forgiving others receiving the forgiveness Guinness of God and others Restoring broken relationships. Whether it's with the spouse or parents or children again it depends on the situation and we try to walk through that process of putting a life back together and we talk about the importance of having a relationship with God through Christ to that to underlie that to be the foundation of all. That's that happens a few days which is very very fast for people to get their brains around brand new concept I remember when you came through the program and you know you have a lot of religious history and and a lot of background. Certainly not where you are today but even going through that process over the last couple of days it took a while for you to finally say I need to start moving in this direction. Yeah I mean when I went there and I had I had known about about God and Jesus and from several different you know aspects and points of view But what I didn't really understand and that helped me the most was just the aspect of grace and just really knowing that God's grace is ongoing process and that it's he gives it a to us to help us through because without it we can't get through and and I think myself and I can probably speak for lots of other guys that go to our program is we spend so many days monster years trying to figure out. How can I get myself out of this mess? How can I fix what I've seen or what I've done or what's been done to me? I have to do this. I have to you know. Grab everything and put it all back together and some of us were that way one because we're men and men like to fixings and to you know when you're in the military whatever branch are in that's part of the process right especially as you go into leadership. It's there's a problem you need to solve and then eliminated made it and then move forward to the objective but I think with life's issues traumas and setbacks. It's it doesn't work that way Roy. So talk about the process process for you when you left Mighty oaks the programmer recession. And we define this different ways. We say program recession kind of interchangeably. The five day period you left as a student and went back to your life. What did that transition look like? Yes I left there. Super hopeful will an pumped up ready to go You Know I. I was definitely a experiencing. What's that mountaintop high and feel really good about things going forward and I got? I got some really good advice leaving there and it was the way you feel right now. Is something that you have to put working to. You can't just expect for everything to be fixed. Yeah when you leave because we talk about it all the time and same as the instructors. When was there a student told us at least seven eight ten times throughout the week when you go home the issues that you left at home to come here to get work on are still well? They're waiting for you and you'll get there and it so in my mind. I did not think that that mighty oaks was a pill that I took it fixed. Everything and I was going to go home I think three things that you know four things that really helped me the most. Go leaving there. Was You know I got plugged into a church and I was able to grow and thrive there from day one until now right And then I got plugged it into community at at an outpost With other mighty oaks alumni. And guys you were just veterans and kind of seeing if they wanted to go to the program I and that was through the church that I was attending and then At as a graduate of Mighty Oaks I got a Bible and then I was told to pray. So being the word being prayer being community and being church called the four BS and you know we still teach that to this day and I think that those are the pillars success. And I I know that about ninety eight days into my sobriety after leaving mighty oaks period where fell off and I got and I know I know why and I knew why even then and it was because I got to a point where I was like. Oh I have this under control I can take care of these things and so I started to venture often because I thought I could Kano everything now. 'cause I'm walking this walk. I'm reading my Bible and I'm praying. I'm going to church and the difference though this time going back kind of the wrong direction was it. It wasn't a thing where it was a permanent. Stay in that wrong direction. I had the tools tools and resources and more more importantly guys around me that pulled me and you know for lack of a word. Slap me in the face a little bit said. Hey get back back in the word. Come back to church. Where why haven't you been at group? Where are you what are you doing and you know as I would make excuses?.

"We see specifically the women that we see come to us in our program have been in the place before where they feel. I can't talk about this. I can't share this because what is so and so going to think. What are they going to say? Or what are they gonNA think of me if they know that I have made some of these choices in my life and so to be setting where people that are teaching the classes or even leading In the program the ministry or they're a group facilitator Are Sharing the things with them that you know. These are choices I've made in my life. I'm not proud of them. really I think is something. That's very unusual and so that resonates so so much with the ladies that we have calm. Because they've been now they're like okay while she can share that or if she can open up in this way then like why. I should be able to do the same thing and it just gives. Is that safe environment by like. It's very unusual. I think it's what makes it authentic though we're not teaching you what we think you should do. But what we've done experience experienced. What would you tell someone who is? Maybe in a church setting Maybe there In Ministry Church coaching. They're they're trying to help women Who are who are hurting? Let me who are broken. Not necessarily from one of those categories that we talked about women who are dealing with things maybe at some trauma in their lives Honestly honestly in both of our program but you know for sure in the winningest program sexual trauma. Something that we deal with a lot. how would you counsel the counselor to to Minister to and and not you know five steps to moving forward but to minister to someone who's broken hurting. What what are some things that you think would be important for them to understanding? And you've seen this from kind of you know the whole You've seen from all the angles. Someone comes to you and says I'm hurting because of how do you. How do you minister first audio peppers and I think that for why should okay? I think but I always say that a lot. I think I think I know what I know. One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Second Timothy One seven and that's it's really been a verse that has spoken to me a lot over the last couple of months for God's given us a spirit of fear but of power and love and of sound mind in so counseling counseling people administration and can be very fearful. Because maybe you have not experienced the same thing they've experienced and maybe you don't know how to speak to that. Maybe you don't know how to like. What am I tell them? And I would say God's given us a spirit of power and of love and Chinese giving us the power of the Holy Spirit to be able to know no how what to speak to people he has given us love and he's giving us a sound mind so really. I'm in that moment. And no being having been in church chministries. I know what that feels like. It can be very fearful because you could have women come to you from all different walks of life from all different experiences and All different kinds of trauma even because what we've said before is that trump is a life issue. It's not just specific to military. First responders is life and it doesn't matter what kind of life you have lived. You know everyone's experience some kind of trauma in their life and so you Don't maybe even know or could speak into what someone's going through because maybe you've experienced it for yourself off. But he the first thing to me always that I think is that love is that we have because of what crisis on for us we have the ability to show that love to other people and so so for someone to feel accepted by Someone in ministry just because of the love that they showed to them and maybe the the just the conversations that are had in love and not judging because of maybe something that you've experienced life that you might not have any control over. I'm like when we talk about sexual trauma as something that that person that has experienced our. That's been done to to them. They have complete not control over at all and so for someone to be a shame for that is really difficult for them to be able to speak up about it and so for them to have someone that is loving them and not judging them Really I feel like it was a long way with a person being able to open up about it and so that verse has really helped me a lot in situations where I felt felt like okay I might not. There's a fear that comes to that because I don't know how I'm going to be able to speak into that but being able to share Chrysler and then also having that sound mind where I know that there's there's things that I know to be true about God and his word and I always like to tell ladies to you know you don't have to have experienced the same thing someone else to be able to point them to the truths that are found the Bible that God loves them and that God has a plan for them and what crisis on them and so really just kind of Having that perspective can really put someone's someone's mind at ease. I guess when you're ministering to all different kinds of ladies and is knowing that God's equipped to do What what you need to do and to be in that place where you are? And he's equipped quipped you to be able to share with the ladies that you kind of contact with them so on the other side of it. You're speaking to the person who is the broken person is he's is hurting in any get. Hurt comes in all shapes and sizes and all forms and and some people look like they have it together and then pretty broken on the inside but Where thirty five? Hope or how would you offer what is hope for that person. That's they don't know where to go from here. What is the hope? The hope is that hat There is a plan for your life and that in spite of all these things that you have an experience in your life and and most of the time probably because like I said the nothing that you can even have control pull over. But that's the beauty of two is that that you don't have to be responsible for someone else's The things that they have done to you and I think the hope and all all of that would be that God has a plan for your life no matter where you are no matter where you find yourself no matter what's been done to you or what you've experienced or the struggle that you've had in your life that that that there is a plan and for most women I feel to come to grips with that is that there is something that God has for me and that he loves me cares about me and like if he's just to ten says that his masterpiece and I think what's really neat about that word masterpiece is that it really speaks to Oh someone's Greatest skill or kind of example of their greatest work. And so when you are a woman and you're looking at yourself like okay. I'm God's masterpiece. There's a lot of hope in that because if someone is looking at you like you are the greatest example of my skill that can be a lot to take in. But there's great hope and not to because if I'm an example of someone's greatest work of Art Greatest Matt you know. Greatest thing that he's ever done which which is how God looks at us and how he talks about us. There's so much hope in that and there's so much hope that there is something beautiful for me and my life in spite of all the things that I've been through. Well thank you. You're wonderful guest.
