Fresh update on "ruth" discussed on Big Time Baseball
"On different. This is normally a you me and John problem. This is always, we gotta wrangle John from the east coast and figure it out for us West Coast boys, but here I am on the east coast, creating all the problems that John hayman creates on this show. Yeah, the connectivity could be a little bit of an issue with an east coaster and a west coaster, but we've made it work this week. Let's start with our pools. Reach the milestone. It gets to 700. He does it and only an Albert Pujols machine type of way. Two homers, same night, in Los Angeles, this is, in my opinion, the best right handed hitter that I have ever seen. He's top two. He's top two in my book in terms of just a hitter. But what a milestone. I mean, it's 700. Four people in the history of the game. You know what, I'll go 5 people. Let's throw sada or O on there too from Japan as well, who also hit like 800 career home runs. But outside of that, I mean, I also think we should talk about Josh Gibson and all the home runs he hit as well, but like, this is such an elite of an elite of an elite of an elite group. I mean, this isn't even Hall of Fame. This is a subsect of Hall of Fame. Like I have a coat. I have a co host on the card show, Craig carton who makes the joke all the time, that Babe Ruth never existed. He's a folk hero, like Paul bunyan. It's not a real thing. And of course you think that. All the things we ever heard about Babe Ruth her whole life. Like, that can't be real. And it is real. We've watched it with Albert Pujols, all for the last 20 years. And if you were not excited about it, basically I think Dave Roberts reaction to home run number two that night. Says
Albert Pujols becomes just fourth player to hit 700 home runs
"Albert Pujols has reached the 700 home run mark while leading the cardinals to an 11 nothing route of the Dodgers Pool holes did it by homering twice once in the third inning and another in the fourth It was his 14th home run since the start of August as the 42 year old Pujols appears ready to retire with a bang He's the fourth player in major league history to hit 700 home runs Joining Barry Bonds Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth Pujols finished with 5 RBIs while Lars newt Bart added a two run Homer in three RBIs Jose can Tana scattered 5 hits over 6 and two thirds innings I'm Dave ferry
Who Would Make a Great Supreme Court Advocate?
"Just because you've watched so many Supreme Court arguments, you know, so many of the justices, you know, so many of the legal people. If you had to recommend a Supreme Court advocate today, someone called you up and their company is on the line, they have to argue before the Supreme Court, who would it be? I guess it would probably be Paul Clement. You and I said the same thing. I got asked that question a couple of years ago. And I've never met Paul Clement or spoken to him, but I hit Paul Clement. Tell people why. Well, because he's just if he weren't such a nice and intelligent and good guy, I would say that he was an idiot savant of an advocate. I mean by that, I don't mean that he's an idiot. I mean that even when he was a baby advocate, he came to the Justice Department with John ashcroft for whom he had worked on the Senate Judiciary Committee, I think. And he was in his young 30s and Ted Olson was the solicitor general and had just won Bush versus gore for president Bush by then president Bush and ashcroft, I think, actually wanted Paul to be solicitor general and the compromise was that he would be deputy, which he was for four years, and then he became solicitor general on his own. But as Ted also would say, Paul is just an amazing advocate. And he is not a, you know, when he worked for the government, he represented the government. When he worked for the Catholic Church, he represents the Catholic Church. Do I think that is closer to an approximation of his views? Yes, I do. But he was a just a bang up advocate for the government. And so was Ted Olson. They both represented they both defended the McCain feingold law. And one in the Supreme Court, and it fell apart years later, and they represent different interests now that they're in private practice, but that didn't stop them from being the best advocates possible for their client at the time and their client at the time was the United States government. You just named two of the four of the greatest Supreme Court advocates of my generation, the other two being the now chief justice John Roberts, and the fourth being an it'll come to me. I just forgot his name. And there are four. And they were always, I get calls, and when the chief justice was in private practice at Hogan, I would say go get him. And now when I get calls, I say go get Paul Clement because Ken Starr judge Starr is no longer practicing. They work great Supreme Court advocates because they just are at ease and I bring that up because of your Walter dellinger story on page one 30 and God bless the late Walter dellinger, who is a great man in the law, with whom I disagreed often. But he mixed up the names of justices, O'Connor and Ginsburg in his first argument. That's over practicing. Nina, that's don't you think that's what it was. He was overprepared he had thought about it so much. I'm not going to mix them up. I'm not going to mix them up. I'm not going to mix them up, and he mixed them up, and they were not happy. I don't even know if it was that. First his first argument, it just was maybe the first time he faced the two of them on the court. You're right. You're right. And he said, I mean, I've done this. I've said North Carolina when my script says South Carolina, I don't know what happens. In a less than ladylike expression, it's a brain fart. Yeah. Happens to me like on a daily basis. Nina totenberg. I mean, on a daily basis, three hours of radio you're going to do it, your buddy Steve never makes a mistake inscape. And I really hate that. But I make mistakes every day. Let me go on now to what the essence of dinners with Ruth is. And I remind you of the Frank luntz role, we've got to say the title of dinners with rouge 7 times for people to remember dinners with Ruth and order dinners with Ruth. And I want to tell my Friends on the center right in the right, this book will charm you and inform you and you'll be better for having read it. I said that most recently about Evan Thomas's one, Evan is a friend, one is about justice O'Connor and as dinners with Ruth does for justice Ginsburg one did for justice O'Connor and together they do what is only very infrequently done they give you a glimpse of the real world of the Supreme Court. And you know what? So much better than I do. I know some of the justices, but not as friends. I mean, colleague, John Roberts, an old colleague, chief just a justice Thomas and Stephen Breyer sat for interviews. And justice Gorsuch had been spent time with, but I don't know them like you know them. And you are a great storyteller. And you humanize them, but especially judge justice Ginsburg. Did you intend that when you began?
AJ's First Brushes With Reporter John Miller
"Thing, guys. If I sound really high on John Miller, it's for good reason. And I want to tell you a story about my, you know, brushing paths with him. Crossing paths with him, brushing shoulders with him, I always looked up to John Miller because of what a Ruth ruthless reporter he was. He was just fearless. And back in the day, as I was still writing sports, but I began to dabble in gossip. I was spending one day a week at with Linda Stacey, the editor of the gossip column at New York newsday called hot copy, actually that was called inside New York. It became high copy when I got there, but it was inside New York. And I used to go every Friday, I'd work at New York newsday in Manhattan, every Friday. And then I'd work, you know, when work was through what I'd stick around and in the city all night and hit the clubs at the restaurant, just get to know the lay of the land and the people who run the nightlife. I'll never forget those experiences. They were tremendous. I learned everything. I met people who got me indoors. I could never have gotten in before. I ended up meeting women that I dated that became great sources and dead different lines of work. I just threw myself out there. And it was really, it was really pertinent to my career going forward. So Miller was a guy I ran into quite a bit. He was already marked to be a star when he was a terrific reporter for WNBC. And later at television, ABC and CBS, and a few years earlier, I remember being mesmerized because I'd watch Miller continually ambush the mafia Don John Gotti. He would ambush him with a camera crew while Ghani was walking along the street with a few of his men, was usually a Little Italy down on mulberry street, where John Gotti had his ravenite social club, and in order to avoid being bumped, Gotti and his underboss, Sammy the bull gravano, and other people would walk around the block, put their hands covering their mouths just like you saw in the movie Goodfellas. I actually casino. And they would discuss business.

RGB Hurt Democrats by Not Quitting While She Was Ahead
"After so many close calls, Jesus Christ, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg dropped dead at 87 years old. As I said in earlier shows, she died at very stubborn woman who should have taken Obama's hint that maybe she should call it a career. So that he could appoint a young progressive Democrat inside the Supreme Court, but no, the mainstream media will never tell you that. RGB stayed in their way too fucking long, often falling asleep, but earrings and spending a lot of time at home when she broke a foot or a heart or a towel, whatever the fuck. Look, I know the one was going through hell. I know she had cancer in different types of cancer. And that's, please, my heart breaks for anybody suffering through that, but that's the time you just retire. What are you doing? Had she retired when Barack Obama asked her the Supreme Court would have had a very different balance to counteract the appointees Trump dropped in like Kavanaugh Gorsuch and Amy call me Barrett. And that development is going to hurt Democrats going forward for many, many years. Decades, maybe. When Ruth Bader Ginsburg died, the ridiculous mainstream media called her an unrelenting trailblazer for gender equality. They never bothered to tell you what I told you that this wonderful little woman wanted to lower the age of consent for our daughters to 12 years old. So you can worship her all you want, but any woman who can think like that is a mean bitch in my book.
Leo Terrell: The Left Ignores the Rule of Law
"Problem I have with this case along with a multitude of other things is the ultimate declassification authority is the president of the United States So this is a hard enough case to make against the Hillary Clinton right I mean it is difficult even though we know she had classified documents because you have to prove some kind of intent right Not only would you have to prove intent here that he intended to squirrel away these documents and violation of the law But you have this unique problem with Donald Trump and that he was the president and he is the one person who can declassify this which creates an enormous obstacle to this case Dan you're a lawyer You just graduated because here's the analysis He has the greatest affirmative defense He has the ability to power unlike Hillary who didn't have the ability to power to declassify she and let me make sure this is so important There's not this double standard argument that I've been hearing and I know you address it There is no double standard This is about power and control by the democratic left who are after Donald Trump for one reason They insult the intelligence of the American public They don't want him on the ballot because they are afraid Dan that we might elect him So they're going to say we're going to take that right away from you You know what The rule of law the most sacred aspect of any civilized country is at issue here Because the left those in the office right now they ignore the rule of law This is critical And I'll tell you right now kudos to that judge who appointed a special master because now there's a check on all those documents that are in the possession of the Department of Justice and the FBI Why they want to keep them and keep those documents because they're looking for something else Dan There's no issue about the president of trading away or giving away secret This is a Ruth to keep him off the ballot
Vin Scully Was Woven in the Fabric of the U.S.A.
"I think I can say with great confidence that this guy was the absolute greatest of all time. And more than that, Vin Scully was woven into the fabric of the USA. Once again, a standing ovation for Henry Aaron. Though the confrontation for the second time, Aaron walked in the second inning. He means the tying run at the plate now, though we'll see what downing does. Alice about delivers and his low ball one. And that just adds to the pressure. The crowd going, downing has to ignore the sound effect. And stay a professional in pitches game. One ball and no strikes, and waiting out for your deep and straight away, fast forward is a high 5 in the deep left center field, but they're both back to the city. That was Vin Scully, calling Hank aarons milestone milestone home run. When he passed Babe Ruth for the most career home runs with his 715th Homer, Vin Scully, the beloved voice of the Dodgers for 67 years. Passed away at the age of 94.
Israel Is Flourishing Despite Itself
"It's hard to do business in Israel. And yet Israel has somehow against all odds and against bad policy exploded economically speaking. It is known as startup nation. It is the place on earth with the most startups per CAPiTA, Israel is a very small country. Territorially, it's tiny. It take you about 45 minutes to drive the width of the entire land of Israel in certain parts of Israel. Maybe less. In certain parts of Israel it's more like 20 minutes. The entire territory of the State of Israel is about half the size of New Jersey. You don't really understand the Israeli Arab conflict until you come here and you spend some time in Jerusalem. Everybody lives cheek by jowl. You can actually visibly see a Ramallah from Jerusalem. The parts of Jerusalem that you hear the left talk about dividing Jerusalem that is not possible. It's like taking your house and saying, during a divorce case, you just divide the house down the middle. You take this bathroom and I'll take this bedroom. It's not going to work. It's very, very foolish, but in spite of all of this, Israel has been able to achieve phenomenal economic success. Israel is burdened with a terrible bureaucratic system. It is dominated by public sector unions, Israel has a terrible judicial system in which the judiciary. You're about judicial activism in the United States. At least in the United States, there's a written constitution. There is no written constitution in Israel. So the Supreme Court of Israel basically just writes whatever it wants. And everybody is expected to comply. The Supreme Court in Israel actually even appointed its own successors. So imagine Ruth Bader Ginsburg appointing her own successor. That's essentially how it works. In the State of Israel, these folks were not answerable to the actual legislature of the State of Israel the Knesset. Despite all these problems, Israel has seen a lot of success.
Rep. Jim Jordan: Jan. 6 Panel Has Told at Least Eight Lies, Maybe More
"Saw you on newsmax the other night. And you were weighing in on the J 6 panel and you said they've been caught in 8 different lives. What are those lies? Well, they lied about Bernie Carrick's travels. They lied about very loud on the colleague of mine. They lied about the tour he gave to constituents. They lied about Jenna Ellis documents. They lied about Eric hershman, White House lawyer, the light about the note written Cathy Hudgens that she wrote it and there was a person said, no, no, I actually wrote that note. They lied about the Secret Service. We've had Secret Service come forward and say that what she testified to was not accurate. And they lied about me twice, they lied about a text message I had forwarded to The White House chief of staff. They said it was from me, a member of Congress when it wasn't. I had forwarded to him from a respected lawyer former inspector general for Don rumsfeld. And then they also took a video quickly where I was on Fox News talking and I was on Maria bartiromo show and the video clip started off with me saying January 6th is the ultimate data significance in a presidential contest. What they left off was the sentence right before that where I said the late justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said that January 6th is the ultimate date of significance in a presidential context because that's when you actually approve the electors. And that changes the entire context of that statement. So we saw that and then, of course, maybe the most important was when Zoe lofgren I remember the committee said, we don't corroborate witnesses testimony. And they didn't ask pat cipollone when he was deposed if what Cassie Hutchinson said about him was true. And his lawyer reported afterwards that if he had been asked to say it wasn't. So that's 8 different false things we've gotten from this committee. And Todd, we don't get to see the evidence. We don't get to sitting on the depositions. We don't get access to the transcripts of the video, the documents they have. We don't get any chance across examine. And so imagine how many other lives they've told the American people if we've caught him in 8 with that limited amount of ebb and we get to see.
What Was the Reasoning Behind the Court's Decision?
"Now, there are a number of states that had trigger bills. That is, if roe V wade and Casey, of course, roe V wade was the original case back in like 73. And it laid out almost in a legislative kind of sense, a very strict accidentally not that straight. A framework of when abortion could be allowed, like you would expect in a law. Now, of course, I know what you're thinking. You're saying, wait a minute. I saw schoolhouse rock when I was a kid. Supreme Court's not supposed to make law. That's the job of the legislature. Exactly? And then Casey came back and it kind of changed it because roe roe was not a very well reasoned decision. And I know that because Ruth Bader Ginsburg said so and Lawrence tried before he went completely insane. So I want a lot of commentary. They like the result. They didn't like the reasoning. Because the reasoning wasn't very sensible. Their reasoning was, well, there's a constitutional right to abortion, kind of because, and it boils down to we really think it's a good idea. And that didn't really work. And it had a very detailed kind of almost legislative outline of what you could and could do with abortion. That wasn't workable. In 1992, Casey came down, they kind of changed the test a little. Became an undue burden on way. You can't unduly burden. The right to an abortion. And what Samuel lita said is, wait, you're wrong at the premise. There is no right to abortion in the constitution.
How Ruth Bader Ginsburg Actually Felt About Roe
"For 49 years starting with roe versus wade really starting before that Then Casey then beyond The nation was forced to live under decisions That were not made by the people But went to the very core of who we are The Supreme Court has a bad habit of nationalizing all cultural issues Rather than allowing the people in the states to resolve them This is one of the things that Ruth Bader Ginsburg was talking about not once but at least twice And they love the Ruth Bader Ginsburg which is why they don't quote her Which is why I do And she said 1992 and an interview with the Columbia law review It would have been better to approach row under the equal protection clause She said That basically this could have been resolved From a political point of view over time
Remembering How Roe Got Overturned With Mollie Hemingway
"With us right now is the great Molly Hemingway on this incredibly eventful newsday Molly, welcome back to the program, your initial thoughts on the Supreme Court's decision. Well, it's just an amazing day to experience many people have worked for nearly 50 years to get to this moment where abortion law is returned to the people. A lot of people understood that roe V wade was a poorly decided decision. You have a consensus on that, whether that's pro lifers or people like Ruth Bader Ginsburg. But it had managed to hold for a very long period of time and it took a lot of work from a lot of people and human rights activists and pro life leaders and the conservative judicial movement and finally this day has arrived and it's just a wonderful day for women and their children and their families and of course it also means there's a lot of work to come in the days and years ahead to protect these families and to also create a culture of life.
Eric Reflects on Meeting Two Women Who Knew Bonhoeffer
"Okay, next question, bahnhof, is an amazing book that I think every pastor should read. Could you please say something more about your time with Ruth Alice von Bismarck and renata? Becca. As I would think that that would be a very moving experience. I'm pretty sure that in the tenth anniversary edition of my bahnhof her book, the new one, the tenth anniversary edition. So if you go online and you buy it, it's kind of a slightly more close up of the face of Bond hoffer. But in that book, the tenth anniversary edition in the hardcover, I did a long introduction where I talk about meeting these women that knew bahnhof for personally and it was extremely moving to meet these women who knew barn Hoff or personally. It was it's hard to take in both of them have passed away. But I had the privilege in 2008 of spending long afternoons with both of them with Suzanne. And it was kind of amazing. But that's in the introduction to my bahnhof her book, the tenth anniversary
Dana Perino: Dems Have to Take a Stand or Admit Complicity
"On Fox News channel's the 5 yesterday reacting to the news of the arrest of this man from California being formally charged with the attempted murder of a United States Supreme Court Justice. There's a couple things that just happened. First of all, this group Ruth sent us. It's like the westboro baptist church, right? Right. Except for except for one thing and judge, you correct me if I'm wrong, it's illegal to protest at the home of a justice. Yes, it is. Okay, so Ruth sent us is going to go to they were at his house today. They plan to be there tonight. If I was an attorney general of the United States, I'd say to rest them all. And Biden should say, they absolutely should be prosecuted. You can not do this. They have to take a stand tonight, and if they don't take a stand tonight, they are complicit. The other thing is that the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi has been slow walking this bill that passed that Senate unanimously. To protect Supreme Court Justices, why is she doing that fast track it tonight? And if you don't, you're complicit. The third thing is that vice president Harris should come out and try to calm people down. For years, they've been saying that if roe V wade is overturned, that the police patty wagons are going to show up and arrest every woman in sight. Now they're saying that roe V wade, if it's overturned, it's going to kill women. And now you have this person who said, I will have a life's purpose. By killing somebody that they think is so evil, what if Kevin was not even good? What if you voted the other way? They don't know. They are so stupid. Right, it's absolutely absurd and I felt a little emotional about it because I know Brett Kavanaugh for a long time. One of my dearest friends when I worked in The White House. And his wife, Ashley, is lovely. And he has two daughters. Right. His daughters deserve this. Do they deserve to go to school and have to deal with the fact that somebody was going to sneak into their home? And kill them. Yeah. And if you don't do something about it tonight, you're complicit. Yes. If you don't do something about it, Schumer, your complicit.

I feel like there's time but right now just thinking about starting some of those like oh my gosh. I will admit that one of the things that i think is really beneficial is having friends or a husband or a child in your life that you can bounce some of these things off of because i also sometimes so afraid to move and so like starting this podcast. I would have started six months later than it actually did. I was like oh yeah. January twenty twenty and my husband was like august twelfth. Two thousand That's that's can six weeks he's.

You no longer need to worry about that. Go ahead and just cross that off. You don't need to carry that anymore. And i was sad about some of those things. And then some of the things he as i was continuing to pray through them he was like not yet some of these things i was so excited about starting and getting started. He was like not yet.

"Ruth. So I've also heard it said that you should never apologize with a butt. Like, you know, I'm so sorry, you felt that way. But it's the apology. Right. And so I've heard that, but then in parenting, that's probably one place I really struggle with that because it's like, I'm sorry, you felt hurt, but there's always a consequence for our actions and you did X Y and Z, therefore I had to do how do you apologize for like kids being dirt without using a butt when really actually like your actions were warranted? Right, absolutely. Well, the thing is, those are two separate conversations. Oh, okay. Apology is just an apology. Okay. You know, mom, it really hurt my feelings when, I don't know, feeling the blank, something we did, our kids upset, you know, I'm sorry. You know, I'm very sorry that, you know, I did that or I'm sorry, you feel that way. You know, will you forgive me? That's it. And then later, if you need to talk about a consequence, that could be a separate conversation because if you say, you know, I'm sorry that I hurt your feelings. So I'm sorry that I hollered at you, but you were driving me crazy. Like now you just negated, you know, the whole apology. And an apology is comes with a period. You apologize, ask for forgiveness, move on. And then later talk about, you know, the consequence of something if, you know, something came up. It doesn't mean we remove the consequence. It just means, hey, I'm sorry that this happened and I'm sorry, you felt this way. Now, one of the huge mistakes I made as a parent was with regard to my kids feelings. And I know that might sound funny because the way I'm talking like it sounds like I was really in tune with their feelings and stuff like that..

Lucille's new book, the impossible kid, parenting a strong willed child with love and grace, was written alongside her daughter, Monica. She's here today to share her experience as a parent. The bad, the good. And the brutally honest. And I believe there is a lot to be gleaned from her stories that she shares. So enjoy and I dare you not to laugh. I am here with Lucille Williams.

"Understanding of who you are but you know even going back to that need for community you know. I tell people go online. Find find a spiritual gifts inventory. Take that test. See what it says you are. That's maybe the first one second. Go find those scriptures that talk about spiritual gifts and study them in context of what's going on around them Studying in context and see which ones jump out to you. You know like for me. Mercy is not there. It's just not right. But teaching is something that i have seen god us even since i was a little kid and over and over in my life and then once you've studied it for yourself you've taken a test just to kinda help maybe point you in in a direction. If you're really unsure then go and talk to your friends and your family go and talk to your small group or a church leader that knows you really well and sam trying to identify my spiritual gifts and i did. This and this is what i think they are. Would you exactly said of firm that or would you disagree with that. And i think that there are there's gifts and then there's talents right and i think that can be confusing too. So i'm a musician but my musical my musical gifting our talents. It's not my my gifting. And so i have been able to be in different ministries in the church like be in the music ministry which that leans more towards my gifting of encouragement because there's nothing more encouraging than to stand up. It's it's a blessing. I know that. I don't get to stand up and watch the congregation as they worship. There is nothing better. It is amazing. But that leans more towards that gifting. And then i get the opportunity to go and lead bible studies and that leads towards my my teaching gift right. But i've done the nursery before. I've done all of these different things and found out. Yeah i can do that for a week but please. Don't make me do that every week. Exactly you know exactly. Yeah well you also brought up the word talents A lot of times people get confused about the difference between gifting and yeah and are something. You're born with it in your jeans. You know you mentioned musical ability. Well that's that's talent in people. Use the word gift wishes a really gift. Just beautiful singing voice. What a special gift while. It is a gift because god gave it to you. But we're we're differentiating between spiritual gifting in natural talents. Yeah I've known people who have one of my seminary professors was an interesting case regarding spiritual gifting because he said before he became a christian he was he was shy. Did not like to be in front of people. In he was. He was not a public speaker at all. He was given the spiritual gift of teaching and he became a christian. He suddenly suddenly in quotes. Because you know it's a program. Regression of grow. He was called to be a teacher which was very not who he was. Naturally yeah definitely a a gifted teacher but would he would make that differentiation. That of his his spiritual. Gifting didn't really fit who he was on. Naturally but it it. It was a gift that was given an was empowered in his usage. A lot of times people. They're they're natural talents and their gifting kind of complement each other from me. I would say okay. I remember my husband. I used to talk years ago before we even knew or anything we to. What do we want to do with their is nice it. I don't know he said well. What do you like to do. I said i like to talk unlike to talk. I know i like to talk. I didn't know how to make a living doing that. Yeah you think olbia radio announcer will actually. I did for time studied theatre in college trying to figure out who the heck. I was right. Well when i became a believer in i was given the gift teaching that kinda complimented like to talk because in order to be teacher you do have to be able to communicate with people that went together right. Right gifting talents. Yeah i was gonna say something earlier. That i didn't mention and that i think there's there's nothing is fulfilling as operating in your spiritual gifting. I'm here in that sense of internal of joy and peace. A sense of. I'm doing what god made me to do. Yeah yeah that that is fulfillment and you know. Part of the reason to is that spiritual gifts are outward focused so the teaching of others encouraging others the serving of others And the the shepherding of others whatever it might be and so there there others focused and i think that's another reason why there's nothing more fulfilling is because y- the attention is not on you you you. It's on them up. That makes sense that makes sense. The lord wouldn't wouldn't lead you to be a self-focused narcissists other focus right right. So i think that's something that i'm always trying to teach. My sons is to be others focused but at four and seven there lure but we try and so. Can you speak to those of us that are parents. There's a lot of parents that listen to the show. And how can we help our kids to begin to identify who begin to find their identity in christ while well let it be who got up. Made them to be first of all. Don't try to force a square peg into a round ohl. If if your child is verbal child like i was fine. Positive ways for them to be able to express their were belisce. Okay for example Make wonderful signs. That said good morning you've been created in god's image. Walk in that truth today. You are an image bear which means respect yourself in others and respect others because they're also image bearers. Oh it has to do with respect to so who tend to be. Abusive relationships have not valued themselves And.

"Our god and our god is three persons father son and holy spirit. We have been created with love of the father. And there's a lot to learn about his great love for us which is permanent. An eternal forgiving kind. Jesus when he lived on earth lifted women up he elevated them. He showed women value. Ach about the samaritan woman in how he lifted her up and she was down and outer. She was an outcast in her culture. Lifted her touched her heart and pointed her to his father and then they're civilly spirit. Who is a person in who empowers us for life. Ministry in god has so god has created us with love he his valued us in shown us that we have a significant role to play and he has in given us gifts in to live out that role in be empowered by his spirit for a supernatural supernatural results at we couldn't produce just in our own on our own. Yeah oh that's word starts. That's where your value come from be rooted in your identity as a child of god created with love rage valued and empowered for life in ministry. And you add some layers to that meaning understand that. Your design uniquely. You have talents. You have spiritual gifting you have different capacities. Yeah and you mentioned different seasons of life. So you live out who god made you to be in different seasons of life on when when you are raising little ones in the home you may not have the capacity to engage outside your little nass that you have later on when your kids are up in often school in. You have more flexibility in your schedule so you can engage in a different way. That doesn't mean your gifts and talents. Change it just means things ebb and flow over time. Hey guys.

Look how do we do that if it's so important to know who we are in christ right and it's so important to make sure that that we are answering that question. Who do you think you are. What does it look like to do that more than just that. Our for me like that time at the gym like that's not the that's an escapism. Really is what it is because yeah it's giving me health great. It's keeping my body healthy but it's not really helping me answer that question you know who are you. Who do you think you are because the truth is i'm not going to be an olympic weightlifter. It's just not in the cards for me. So what is how do we figure that out if we find ourselves saying well. That'd be great but i don't have time for that. Well think i know the sun strike with you make time for what's important and You are is important to fill your mind with the truce and root out wrong thinking ideas about who you are and how you matter this life. your not valuable because your mom although that's an important job and it's very valuable job you are value because you are created. In god's image you are an image bearer in you have been called to live out the truth of who got us through your gifting and talent. You're gonna do that no matter what time of the day it is or what year it is He's doesn't it. Make sense to you that if god has given you a gift you would like you to use it one hundred percent so i have a gift. You have a gift. One of my spiritual gifts primary gives i would say would be teaching Well.

"I had done Every time i did not connected with going to church lieutenant. If i knew god in in i felt like internally like i had done something to move forward towards him and now i was going to see if he responded to me. That was the beginning of my christian life. And i could go on but i went through a lot of changes. Yeah changes and one of the biggest changes. Was this lady that i met invited me to church a. Came to church with her. Like i said i. I would never quite knowing price with with going to church but it might have me and i thought okay. I'll do it again. A step forward and Something kinda miraculous happened. Because now i was going to church in. They were preaching the bible. But now i was hearing it like. I had never heard it before i mean. I read the bible when i was in high school.

I think that's one reason why we have to keep reading scripture right because even if you have been you know like you said it in a church or even if your church is a good healthy bible believing church you're still going to see scripture through different eyes in different parts of your life. I'm glad that your story led to you being in a church and but this is going through my mind of. I know that some people stories is with the church. General is yes. I had so many questions. And i got in trouble for asking too many questions. But it seems like that's just like literally a part of your nature so once you went into the church. Did you find that or yes no okay. They had little cards in the back of the seats. Or the pews. And and the pastor would give him sermon in the little card said the sign up to do whatever whatever to signing up. I would just say you just said this this morning. I don't why. Why bomb. About question. Question question. And i put my name down and i turn it in and i did that but you just said this and i don't understand what that means boba about my name. I turned it in every week. The church call this was not a large may. Be six to eight hundred. Somebody called me and said you know we'd like to invite you to get into a small group where we do a bible study and i thought ooh. I don't know if i want to do that. Plus my husband at that point was not a christian. Okay and Kind of weird for me to like go by myself. I okay. I was on. This journey was on this quest. So i said okay. I'll do it. So i went to this bible. Study off anybody's ever had this kind of experienced when it was all couples and me and every single person that's listening to this is going. Hey man i been there. You feel a little weird okay. So they were trying to be nice but they were in my view at that time. They weren't serious. I have a lot of questions. They were having their little fun. Event get together group time in. I came home from that. And i thought oh that is not for me. Nobody seems to be really serious. About trying to understand on with god and whatever whatever you not so i didn't go back okay. So god bless this church. They called me again and they said you know maybe maybe what would be better for. You would be if you just met with like one person and what they were talking about was kind of like a disciple relationship. Yeah so i met this woman at church. They said it's going to be you know we're thinking of this lady sandra. She lives in your neighborhood and and she would be happy to meet with you. Okay okay so. I met her church and and i to myself. She is everything i never wanted to be. She seemed like a really nice lady. This process going really well. Some great. i'm out there trying to figure out who i am and be independent in. I am woman. Hear me roar and she is a stay at home mother of two kids who never went to college. Just really sweet but I just felt like we are miles apart. Remove we are. Yeah right okay. So there again. I'm thinking okay. I'll meet with her. I keep winning one in front of the other one. I thought i'm on a quest here. So i'm start meeting with her. Well guess what she. And i have become life.

Well it is my pleasure today. Be here with dr kristen beasley. Thank you so much for joining me. Today you're welcome to be so we are both in phoenix at the time where it is finally starting to feel like fall in the mornings at least in our right. Will you tell us a little bit about yourself. Well let's see My husband and i've been involved in seoul time ministry or a long time came to christ. I came to christ in the seventies. i'm an adult and so is my husband and We've been on a an incredible journey with the lord for many years. Ended up being in full time ministry starting in the eighties late eighties. And are at this point. I would say semi-retirement out really retired. I don't think when you walk with the lord you ever retire now. We have cut back on our responsibilities. My husband was outreach. Pastor at scottsdale bible church for you know many years eighteen to twenty years I was Dna women at phoenix seminary for ten years where i developed classes Did i win with vision. Conference for fourteen years involve mentoring of women students. So i had a variety of responsibilities at the seminary and then since that time we have joined an organization called uci allerg- international and as part-time missionaries. Wow that's amazing. I mean that's a lot that's what you've done but it's a lifetime right like that. It's not something that you all did at once. It's a development of where god took you so you had a spiritual journey that took a lot of turns in your young age. And can you kind of share a little bit of your story up until the point where you met. Jesus oh wow well. I was born in the lac wisconsin. Okay what i said okay. Oh yeah okay. The land of of cheese in the green bay packers and Fourth of four children was I had a. I have.

"Are full. But i'm gently leading you. Because i'm just thinking what happened. Do i even know god anymore. Like you know he's like i'm right here. I'm moving more to your pace. And i just wanna say whatever season you're in if you're in one of those overwhelming seasons especially if you're a single mom god's grace be on you in the lord knows how hard it is and he will honor your prayers in the short time that you have and just take the pressure off for yourself and realize you don't have to do it. Perfect ask for his wisdom in how to do things and and applying some of the things like the things that i teach that. Really make life more doable. So that you can have more time. And i will say if can only get one thing in one thing i've learned is family dinner. We all need to eat every day. Katherine snow of professor of education at harvard. University didn't eight year. Study on sixty five families. This was not even a faith-based study but she just studied child's development development what impacts the most is it education story time playtime or family. Dinner family. Dinner was way way way way higher than any other any other factor in just plain old child development. But when you consider faith in passing on your faith. How much more as christians does that mean to what we can pass on children's so even if the only thing that you can do is sit and eat with your kids. That's a huge thing that you're doing and it shown to raise confidence in children. It's shown to do so many things it's shown when they're in their teenage years. Yeah like seventy five percent less likely to experiment with drugs and sat that and things like that just that alone and i know when we adopted i was so overwhelmed at the beginning and i felt like that was the only thing i could do. I could hardly even help them with their homework. And i'm trying to help teach them english their help them get better at their english and things But i just said thank you. Lord that i have family dinner. 'cause i know that's one thing that i am doing. I'm putting food on the table. Hopefully it's healthy even if it's not the best in health at least we're meeting and we're gathering over food asking god bless it and bless our time so that one thing alone is actually much more than most moms. Most families are doing for their kids. But just if you can do that one thing even if that's eating out if you have to eat out almost every meal you're gathering around a table you're asking each other. How's your day. What what was the highlight. What was a low things like that such a good answer. Such a good answer. I i wonder you know here..

"I'm sorry this is your limit in and then if they complain this is probably something we need to implement right now to think of it because a lot of times in our home if you complain about something then you you're either volunteering for more of that thing like if you complain about your daily job if the bad then you've just volunteered for another one that day and so it really cuts all the complaints. Like almost to nothing. All you have to say is was that a complaint. No carrying out the trash i. It's it's that kind of thing. So even complaining about that boundary. Was that a complaint. Do we need to take two more minutes off that you know or whatever so interesting do you find it. I think sometimes. I find it almost hard to think of like discipline like how to discipline kids. I feel like it's the same thing over and over again and then the discipline loses its effect. Do you find it hard or have you found a way to when they do break those boundaries. Less come up with something. Okay so one thing. I learned by the second or third child. I started figuring out. I didn't want to be That kind of mom. Yeah and i thought with my. I i have to get my point across. I have to look mean after you know with this toddler shown. That's not okay. You know what. I found fun ways to to say. Here's the boundary. It's your choice. The ball's in your court. I know you can do a great job if you don't. I'll bummer. You've chosen this. I believe though that you can make a so. It keeps it on the positive. Okay i believe you can do this. So one of the biggest things i hear from the moms and i know from our own home is siblings arguing to go so one of the things that i that it demonstrates to do it in a fun way. I always like to just when they start arguing. Just be go set the timer. Everything goes back to the timer. Set the timer for a minute and say you've got one minute to work this otherwise you're going to do this in a lot of with my boys. I just came up with the. You're gonna hold hands in go in the front yard. Hold hands and skip back and forth across the line and seeing. Skip to loo my darling. If they didn't figure it out you can't figure it out in one minute. So it's just weird crazy stuff that they don't wanna do no or like you're literally gonna hug your brother in a full embrace and kiss him on the lips because i realize you need more love for each other obviously not finding enough love. Your only planning strike did that. Then result o- giggles if they actually like a always worked it out i always about. Sometimes they'd be watching the timer and they're fighting up till the last ten seconds and then what we're good we're good and even now my two teenagers that i've got it home. They were arguing the other day and i literally just what. I didn't say anything. Just walked over to the timer on evan and tried to slyly depressive. For one minute and they heard they they they were full on yelling at each other and they heard the little don't and they were like mom. You set the timer figure it out so you know there's just so many things we can still be fun moms yet we've set boundaries and said this is not acceptable. This is a piece stone in our house. You know and we don't allow that. We don't tolerate it And in the end they appreciate it because people want to live in a peaceful home. Yeah hey guys. I want to take a minute to tell you about. The journey of ruth inside look inside look is our newsletter that.

"Like you're all in your all in following. Jesus just no questions asked when the holy spirit directs you. Yeah i like that idea of being all in because when we think about that you know we think about like maybe like a romantic relationship like you see that on right like you know the the hallmark movies. I'm all in. I'm all in. I didn't know that. But that's now i'll remember. Hey it's you see that but then you also see like people in their sports teams. They are all in rooms houses decorated in the colors of their sports teams. And so what you're saying is that when we are making disciples our goal is to see lives transformed so deeply that we are all in with everything exactly and where the attachment that i'm talking about. I talked about attachment to jesus and the holy holy spirit. but what. I didn't mention that. I know i must say. Is that the word of god. The bible scriptures are the venue to which the holy spirit builds christ likeness in our lives transformational in our lives as disciples who his goal the holy spirit goals that we would become like christ but he doesn't do that through vaporizing or he does that directly through his word. The word of god is essential in discipleship. Your book is called a. Your latest book is called the gentle art of disciples women. And it's one that i have taught and worked through many times And one of the questions that i wanted to ask you is why gentle. Why did you choose that word. I chose gentle. Because of what jesus says and isaiah forty eleven or the scriptures say in isaiah forty seven. It's talking about the shepherd he's talking about god and it says he gently leads those who have young and in the new living translation. I looked it up the other day. It says he gently leads the mother sheep. I thought wow. That is very interesting. That mother mothership is used there. So i do believe that jesus promotes gentility when we are engaging with women as they seek to grow in christ as opposed to. I have been around a long time. And there was a period of time where disciple making was very agenda oriented. And do this. don't do this. You can't say that things like that and it lacked gentleness so i think the gentleness is to come alongside and see where this woman is at and truly love her and serve her by embracing what the holy spirit of god is already doing in her life and helping her grow in crest. I love that so gently. Yeah yeah. I love that idea of embracing what god is already doing in.

"Changed the way that we react to other people. The way that we view the world that we live in is what we'd call a biblical worldview. It's it allows us to then live for christ and his kingdom and it's the thing that grounds us in our in our faith so the gospel being the word of god or the bible the gospel i would say the good news of the kingdom The saving grace. The god's word to be rooted in that message of you're no longer dead in your trespasses since about your made ally that you're a new creation so there's everything's different about the kingdom of of god then the kingdom of this world and so the gospel begins to shine light on all of those areas of what it means to live in the kingdom of god right k. And then step three step to know that was stepped up three. They're polar jesus. Yeah rooted in the gospel tablet in your faith would would be. When jesus says to go make disciples baptizing them in the name of the father and the holy spirit and then to teach them all that i have commanded you to do. There is the teachings of christ that the kingdom of god has these principles that we are called to live by in. so there's this process of going. What does it mean to live in the kingdom of god. What are the how. To's of living in the kingdom and so me not growing up in the church The being a part of a christian community question is what is the lifelock like. Now how do. I live out my faith so relationships should look different. Now that i'm married or or those who have shared my faith with who've come to faith later on in their life who are married Your marriage select different. How should you. How should you treat your spouse. How do we live with our neighbors around us. How do we submit to authority. How do we transform right. The world tells us to transform by thinking positively or by reading the best. self help book where the kingdom would go no. It's actually opposites to submit to the spirit and allow hin. The transformer lives in. That's where we'll see. Fruit bear kingdom principles really in the first century called the first principles getting a little greek called the the it is a set of jesus teachings that were expounded upon by the writers of the epistles that begin to show us..
