"Which i think is good at reasonable right Now the other reason that they say this though is products in the us that are sold. Like this as i have mentioned are not uniformly regulated. So you might not be getting what you think you're getting that's the other important point to just trying to self treat with something like saint john's wart even if you might be one of the people in whom it could be effective may be. It would be if you're actually taking the right thing cutting with bacon sooner or something like that. Well i mean you say that ingest but i mean there have been plenty of studies that was actually The listener who recommended this topic kayla That was one of the things that They send along with their email is that There have been studies that have shown that when we take over the counter herbal products in the us and just test them to see is the thing that's on the bottle actually in there Not always oh good yeah They were in in this study. They were able to authenticate about half of the products. That's great sure And but one third also contain contaminants and fillers that were not listed grade even better and some of those can pose serious health risks. That sounds healthy. Like pure life drew leaf or so that it's really interesting because what it speaks to is. Even if st john's wort may be an effective treatment for depression in a patient. The thing you're buying over the counter you have. We just don't regulate it that way. You can't be reassured that you're actually buying something that one will contain. The active components of saint. John's were into won't contain other possibly harmful contaminants. That's just the problem and this is not me saying so. Don't ever use john's where it's just you need to know. You're getting the real thing. Maybe in germany it would be better And the only other thing. I'll throw out there and this is really important about saint john's wart and this is true for any sort of again unregulated herbal supplement. It can interact with other medications. You're on we know it can do that. We have tested that and specifically it's broken down the pathway that it uses called or chrome p. four fifty one o'clock. It's a it's a liver. It's a pathway through the liver that the The things are broken down in pathway. That is used a lot of medications that you might take and specifically the way that st john's were interact with side agreement before fifty. Is it induces it. Meaning it can make it go faster make it break things down quicker and more efficiently good. No because what will happen is it could decrease the blood levels of other medicines. You're on lower than what we want them to be.

"But if it's a big ticket diagnosis. One that the cure. Well that the cure could come with a lot of money and fame and also they're going to be a lot of people who are scared and willing to seek out alternatives because they might feel that they are out of other options traditional mainstream options You're always going to find this kind of thing So it's been tried for a lot of these different things anti inflammatory type purposes and none of those studies have shown to what anything interesting you fi- in teeing around the fact that it might actually have some effect on so the the one area in which has been much more rigorously tested and again not to the level of a lot of the you know prescription drugs us in this country but it has been more rigorously. Tested is when it comes to Anxiety depression and specifically depression That is that is the main area where saint john's wart has been tested In those trials the results have been kind of mixed There was one in two thousand eleven where they sort of compared it to a traditional Sri that's a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor. Which is the sort of the mainstay treatments will use for depression. So they compared it to one of those medicines and basically they found that nobody got any better the people on placebo the people on the sri. The people on saint john's word. There was no difference so they didn't find any of it in fact so that was an interesting study. The lasry in this particular study it was seventy three person study there. You go There was another one that was done very depressing. The middle of twenty sixteen like no. I don't feel better better. There was another one that was done. it was a bunch of data that was collected in two thousand and two and then they finally analyzed it in two thousand twelve and it suggested that it was similarly effective in ineffectiveness to an a different one. A different antidepressants. They try to share this with i said said to. They tried to talip- ram in the first study. They tried Search aline in the second At two thousand eight much larger review of twenty nine studies from all over the place so not just in the us now. They took Like these were international. studies They they said that they think it might be better than placebo and on the same level as some prescription antidepressants From looking at these twenty nine studies it was really interesting because specifically studies in jeopardy showed them to be more effective than other places which the question there we have to start asking is one it. There's a much longer tradition of it being used in germany. So is it like hawthorne well and and cultural acceptance of it like we know. This is a treatment for depression here. We don't question that But the other thing is the thing. I mentioned i wonder i..

"Practitioners room now in the us. Like i said outside of the. Us wasn't always necessarily the case especially for this medicine. In germany is a strong tradition of using it in germany and this would spread to other parts of europe but the eclectic in the us really kept it alive. We talked about the eclectic medical tradition. That really in the late eighteen hundreds. They were sort of like a online with tom. Sonian and right other alternative medicine traditions. That basically looked at mainstream medicine and said you guys don't know what you're doing which was true right in many cases. We don't know what we're doing either but we're just going to take a shot at it. Well and some of this was the mainstream doctors. Don't know what they're doing and the things they're doing are hurting and killing people and those are all valid things to say So this was more like. Let's try to do things that help people again without any sort of rigorous scientific effort. But maybe we won't try things that are so harsh may sense. Let's let's drink an herbal tea. And worst case it makes you you know. Have diarrhea or something. But that's the worst case which compared to what some of the mainstream physicians at the time. We're doing it didn't seem as drilling holes in heads. It didn't seem as bad However the eclectic kept it alive even though it had sort of these magical things because they didn't mind that that was also part of the eclectic thing is. We don't mind if it kind of has this magic thing to it if it works it works You know where okay with them And so like. I said it continued to be used here mainly again for the things that i think the reason that it stuck for these certain conditions is probably because they saw more effectiveness. Just like out there. Person to person For things like anxiety and depression And in europe it became a lot more standardized My understanding is that it would not be unusual for a patient who was being treated for one of those mood. Disorders to be on saint. John's wart and i and i believe the production of what you're actually taking. The pill or tablet itself is a lot more standardized. In the us. It is still considered like. I said an herbal supplement so it is not regulated in that same fashion that we would have prescription drug. So the what you're getting in a pill the way that it is made and How what it's compounded with and all those different things can be a lot a lot more variable now even though am going to get into the actual like studies that have been done on it Because there are there are a lot of people on it here in the. Us are probably people listening. Take this on a regular basis Like many cure-alls it has been tried for a lot of stuff that we've never really seen good solid evidence it works for as i mentioned there was a lot of interest in it as some sort of antibacterial agent or antiviral agent We've we've said this many times. A lot of things can kill something in a petri dish. That doesn't mean we can put it in a human body and it'll do the same thing although we do have the advantage of knowing that saint john's wart doesn't it's not like it's not the same thing as bleach right words like totally bad. Yeah where like. You can't put it in a human body because it will also kill the human body but It was there were studies trying to say that it could cure cancer and you know hiv all the the usual things any the those big. I hate to say it this way..

"A diuretic if you were bloated for gastritis There were more like Sort of vegetable base like oil Compounds that were made with To be placed on things that were inflamed like him royd. You could use it for him. Lloyd's and then for for more you know minor injuries like a burn or a cut or a sore or something There was also a lot of belief that it was good for especially in in germany for like nerve damage. Neuropathy that kind of thing and so the top application or taking it internally for that sort of nerve damage or pain or something was a very common use as well. It would become part of the traditional herbs that were used by cultures indigenous to the americas as well as it showed up as it showed up here like i said i think the first time that they found it in the us was in like pennsylvania sometime in the mid seventeen hundreds and then it continued to grow and and spread around here and everywhere that it went it's it's an invasive plant it just it doesn't could've yes except i don't.

Where if something's going to work you have to be able to test and prove why. And how and that. It works in multiple people and like also separating the last vestiges of this sort of spiritual tradition of medicine from the scientific physical literal world tradition of madison herbs. Like this like saint. John's wart who i mean the name speaks to it's sort of magical mystical properties in these beliefs associated with it and because of that Herbs like this especially were discounted by a lot of physicians hand. Because well you know the idea was the only reason this is. This is a folk madison. And the only reason people believe in it is because they think that it wards off magical spirits and all this kind of stuff so things like that Were dismissed by a lot of like mainstream medical.

"John's and there are a bunch of other names. But this is you know nowadays saint. John's wart is definitely the one i would guess for transition from high per for autumn. It probably transitioned from that plant with the weird flowers to saint john There is also a a legend about the name that maybe it is. Because so like i said you can take the flowers and you can crush them in. Let out this sort of red juice app and like if you just put in oil eventually it will just sort of turn the oil red and that that was something you do like You'd want to infuse like oil with it and so you would just put the flowers and olive oil. And then after a certain number of days oil turns red. And you know it's in there And supposedly the first time that happened was on august. Twenty ninth which. I guess is the day that john. The baptist was beheaded. Okay sure looking at you. Because i like lighthouses no because i was baptised for awhile and that baptist is in the name so i thought maybe you thought maybe i'd be plugged into john the baptist. I mean i know some south about john the baptist but none of it relating to his words. His name was john. The raised catholic. You coming so anyway magical stuff one. the timing of when it blooms most likely probably sounds more logical right But it does do that. Cool thing war is an old word for plan. Oh man yes controlled. English were w. a. y. rt which arose plant arrows gearing for some classic saw bones. Dinner perjure via comes war means plant if it goes the so you know. There's a lot of. There's some words in english and german that have common roots and overlapping The german word were disease. Which is from the word wurzel which means route. And then mortis and weren't means player and then war tour means plant. There you go now. You have a lot more sense to you a person who's looking at it on a page news listening to you. Say kinda sound old english and now it's warton it means. Plant got it done. It isn't like i said it was native to parts of europe And and some parts of asia but then it was transplanted. All over the world A long time ago. I mean it's it's been here. I think the first time it was noted in the us was like the late seventeen. Hundreds transplant is a hundred percent. What is happening when you're moving from place to place. I love that And it was everywhere when it was sort of prized for its perceived medicinal benefits. I mean everybody pretty much agreed like this is a great medicine. Plant of the medicines. We have available to us. This is also a great one there two compounds in it that are mainly responsible for the activity that it has something called. High patterson and then high perforation so there are two like active compounds. And at that can do stuff in your body There's a lot of other stuff that might have effects but those are the main two things right Then that's just important to know if you're going to have something that like is going to be used as an herbal supplement. It needs to actually contain the things from the plant that actually. Do you do something you could. We're talking about a whole plant. That's different than the idea of like a synthesized chemical that you take because you know exactly what is in that pill or oral suspension or whatever. We're just talking about sort of crushing flour and eating it know hippocrates spoke of of uses for high He mainly focused on things like anxiety as well as like inflammation in general could also be applied topically so.

"One's a little little different. We're a little different okay. Hi paraffin perforation. Is the name the scientific name of the of the plant. This comes from A couple of greek roots hyper an icon meaning over and and either image or apparition to over an image over an apparition. It's because of the power that the plant was thought to have for a long time. It was thought that a com had this sort of magical quality that allowed it to ward off evil spirits or demons or you know bad stuff so which is part of why. I think there was a hesitant to accept it. Because we've talked about on the show. There are other like plants that we realized were medicine that happens. I mean plants got com or medicine has come from somewhere and sometimes it's a field but a lovely meadow. A field of victories. No not a field of advil trace but So there was this sort of mystical connection with it that it had this ability to to protect you in some way Part of it. And we'll get into this and i think there's probably does look magical. I've never had. I've never seen a joe. johns plant. The wild i guess you can like you can find. You may have seen one in the wild i. would you recognize it are you. I've looked at pictures of it. Now you can discern hindsight. Yeah yeah and i. If i did. I didn't know that's what it was. But i don't recognize it around here. It could one place. I read that it could grow or like a dozen mining areas. Salaciously might have. It's gotta be here. I mean it has to be here still. It's all anywhere that's temperate. It's there like it's all over the place it's it's an invasive species in most of the planet now That's not where it started. But but nowadays you can see it. A lot of places. The perforation part of the name comes from these little translucent. You can see if you hold the leaf up so it looks like it's been perforated. Looks like it's a in But the but the mystical part in part might be because if you take the flowers and crush them they give off this very dark red sort of oil or juice or something and that looks cool. Blood pretty metal. I guess The the name. The colloquial saint. John's wart was given to it by europeans. Who noted that the flowers tended to bloom around twenty four th which is the feast day of saint john the baptist. That is at least one thought as to how how it transition from high para com per for autumn. Which you know of course. Everybody was privately. Yeah to saint. John's and there are a bunch of other names. But this is you know nowadays saint. John's wart is definitely the one i would guess for transition from high.

"He is the one true christ. It was an expectation of this great messiah. The chosen people the jews or israelites or hebrews for these are different names for the same people looked out from age to age. He was to come to set all things right and next to this great question which occupied their minds mainly when was he to come was the question who was to be his mother. It had been told them from the first noth- that he should come from heaven but that he should be born of a woman. At the time of the fall of adam god had said that the seed of the woman should bruise the serpent's head who then was to be that woman thus significantly pointed out to the fallen race of adam at the end of many centuries it was further revealed to the jews that the great messiah or christ the seed of the woman should be born of their race and of one particular tribe of the twelve tribes into which that race was divided from that time. Every woman of that tribe hoped to have the great privilege of herself being the mother of the messiah or christ for its duration since he was so great the mother must be great and good and blessed to hence it was among other reasons that they thought so highly of the marriage state because not knowing the mystery of the miraculous conception of the christ when he was actually to come they thought that the marriage right was the ordinance necessary for his coming hence was if mary had been as other women she would have longed for marriage as opening on her the prospect of bearing the great king. The chain was to humble and too pure for such thoughts. She had been inspired to choose that better. Way of serving. God which had not been made known to the jews the state of virginity. She preferred to be his spouse to being his mother. Accordingly when the angel gabriel announced to her her high destiny shrank from it till she was assured that it would not oblige her to revoke her purpose of a virgin life devoted to her. God thus was it that she became the mother of the christ not in that way which pious women for so many ages had expected him but declining the grace of such maternity she gained it by means of a higher grace and this is the full meaning of saint elizabeth's words when the blessed virgin came to visit her which we use in the hail mary. Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of the womb and therefore it is that in the devotion called the crown of twelve stars. We give praise to god the holy ghost through whom she was both virgin and mother. Mary is the mater salvatori. He's the mother of the savior here again. We must understand what is meant by calling lord savior saviour in order to understand why it is used to form one of the titles given to mary in her litany the special name by which our lord was known before his coming was as we found that of messiah or christ thus he was known to the jews but when he actually showed himself on earth he was known by three new titles the son of god the son of man and the saviour the first expressive of his divine nature the second of his human the third of his personal office thus the angel who appeared to mary called him the son of god the angel who appeared to joseph called him jesus which means in english savior and so the angels to cold him a savior when they appeared to the shepherds but he himself specially calls himself the son of man. Not angels only call him savior but those two greatest of the apostles saint peter and saint paul in their first preachings. Saint peter's says he is prince and a savior and saint. Paul says a savior jesus and both angels and apostles. Tell us why he is so called because he has rescued us from the power of the evil spirit and from the guilt and misery of our sins thus the angel says to joseph thou shalt call his name jesus for he shall save his people from their sins and saint peter god has exalted him to be prince and savior to give repentance to israel and remission of sins and he says himself the son of man has come to seek and to save that which is lost now. Let us consider how this affects our thoughts of mary to rescue slaves from the power of the enemy implies a conflict our lord because he was a savior was a war year. He could not deliver the captives without a fight nor without personal suffering. Now who are they who especially hate wars a heathen poet answers wars. He says or hated by mothers. Mothers are just those who especially suffer in war. They may glory in the honor gained by their children but still such glorying does not wipe out one particle of the long pain the anxiety the suspense the desolation and the anguish which the mother reversal feels so. It was with mary for thirty years. She was blessed with the continual presence of her son name she had him in subjection but the time came when that war called for him for which he had. Come upon earth certainly. He came not simply to be the son of mary but to be the savior of men and therefore at length. He parted from her. She knew then what it was to be. The mother of a soldier who left her side. She saw him no longer. She tried in vain to get near him. He had for years lived in her embrace. And after that at least in her dwelling but now in his own words the son of man has nowhere to lay his head and then when you had run out she heard of his arrest his mock trial and his passion at last she got near him when and where on the way to calvary and when he had been lifted upon the cross and length she held him again in her arms yes when he was dead crew he rose from the dead but still she did not thereby gain him for he ascended on high and she did not at once. Follow him no. She remained on earth many years in the care. Indeed of his dearest apostle saint john but what was even the holiest of men compared with her own son and him the son of god. Oh holy mary. Mother of our saviour in this meditation. We have now suddenly passed from the joyful mysteries to the sorrowful from gabriel's enunciation to the to the.

I have always loved sports and growing up in a very strong catholic family. It was all sports. In god's we're thinking so all through school high school. I played every sport Captain of most of most every team. I play I've sat i. Was i was going to be professional athlete. Growing up growing up through high school. And then you get to college.

You need an advanced degree. So i ended up going to saint thomas university. I got my mba down. In miami florida in sports administration from there i ended up telling to st john's catholic croats neither assistant athletic director.

He Must Increase, but I Must Decrease (John 3:30)
"John Chapter Three Verse Thirty He must increase. But I must decrease. Seven. Simple. Really. Hard words. To pray here's what I mean by that. I was younger. man who had a huge impact on my life spiritually. He challenged me to identify a verse in the Bible that would be your life verse I could sum up one verse that you want to describe your life. What would it be? I few can identify one verse the You want to mark your life. What would it be? And this, this is the verse that I chose. John Three thirty, he must increase but I must decrease. St. John. The Baptist talking about Jesus. Saying, his purpose in this world. is to decrease. That's what he must do. and Jesus must increase meaning John the Baptist purpose in this world was to exalt. Christ. Not Himself. And I say those are like simple but. because. This verse. Well. I it as my life verse I. Feel like. So often it's just been A. Constant Wrestling and struggling in me like I. Think I really do want Jesus increase as best as I can tell him my art like I want to Exalt. Jesus. What does see Jesus exalted. The struggle is. I can so easily turn this prayer into. He must increase in. I wouldn't mind kind of increasing as well. Like to really say no, I WANNA decrease I want to decrease I wanna be totally forgotton. I don't want anybody even think about me like. I'm just being honest here I oftentimes. Want people to think well of me. I. Struggle when people don't think well of me and it's It's a constant battle to say. No I don't I don't WanNa care about what people think about me I want to live so that people don't think about me at all I, WanNa live to the people think about Jesus I want John. Three thirty to be my life I and pray continually for it to mark my life, and yet there's this constant struggling to live dead to myself on a daily basis. So God, I pray for my own life that you would make this verse more and more and more a reality. This verse would indeed Mark Me. Jesus you would become greater through my life and I become less like less and less and less and less every way in my own highs and other people's is less in Jesus you. Become greater increasing. The same over those who are listening right now, don't know what life I they might have. Even ever thought about that. But gotta pray pray that you would increase through their lives that your glory would be made known that your love would be known. Your name would be made known and their names have become less less and less and less less and less about them more and more about you gotTa pray this for US less and less about us more and more about you because you're the only one who's worthy of glory you're the only one whose name ultimately matters. You're the only one who can. Save your the only one who is Lord and King overall like the think that in light of who you are, I would ever desire people to think well, it makes no sense. You're the only one who is worthy of all worship and all praise. All adoration. So God. We pray you'd help us to live with the constant refrain in our minds and our hearts he must increase, but I must decrease he must increase but I must decrease Oh God man is mark my our lives you increasing and US decreasing. In Jesus name, for Jesus, glory for his increase we pray.

"st john" Discussed on Free Cookies
"A luxury. It was like a kind of flattening of experience in a way where it's somehow rendered the distance unconvincing. You know it's like I would land in New York in the morning and I didn't really believe that I was in a different city. Somehow it was just such a smooth. Continuous frictional experience And I think that having enormous amount of money just having to every one of your needs to just met as a matter of course I think that might provide a similar sort of friction looseness though that your life might feel quite similar and London as a dozen New York. Not The Changing the city's being more backdrop than anything else but yeah it it does seem to me that people at a certain level of wealth they do sit of Levin their own country and kind of the same country you know depending on no matter where they are in a way. It's interesting because I've as as young people I don't know if you guys can relate. I was younger. I used to think of red eyes as being a fabulous use of time. And but then the the the cost right if you're if you're as I would be flies like economy and like middle seat. The cost of that flattening of time or they will quote unquote. Well us. Time was a little piece of your soul as you exited that because this is just just I just remember walking those planes and being every single time being like it wasn't worth it that wasn't worth shattered very special way. That like red eye shattering which is different than the Delta One. I slept for the five hours. Feeling is the opposite experience sticking on this idea of money. I'm not sure where the question is in this. But so so. There's the one experience of like people who maybe were born in into wealth and then there's a different experience of of growing up without money in some way. Where as you get older you start to change become a little more. If you come into money you become more discerning in certain things that you do right like I grow breath. Thought old navy was like the greatest thing that ever happened. This clothing in America right and then and then all of a sudden. I thought the gap now. The gap is where it's at and then and I was like older Banana Republic and I'm like that's the pinnacle germ than it went to like saks fifth avenue. And like but I don't believe I'll ever touch like I'm not gonna go by fendi right or Gucci or anything you can have this process along the way and I can look at it in lots of different avenues of our life. I used to just get whatever olive oil existed. That was the cheapest now like extra-virgin. Did it come from these? All organic was that like. Yeah exactly and there's certainly holdouts like one is like You know how account should I ever really by? So I'm wondering how have you had that similar kind of experience in terms of your so discerning when it comes to probably every word choice every sentence you write down and then you see that discernment when you have money? Start to trickle into other avenues of your life. Yeah Reno. Just buy the cheapest coffee now. I have Embarrassed to admit were a tune. Espresso machine how soul. But I had one that my husband wanted a different kind of like you know. It's not a mark of Yuppie Sanity. I don't know what yeah and you know what you were talking about the sort of moving target in terms of what you're willing to pay for white you. Yeah like what you buy. I guess I mean I had the same thing where I loved the gap and and then you get to a different point in your life and you're like but the t shirt apart after six months at one better. Yeah and then you find yourself spending amounts of money and closed the like would've made you faint twenty but now it's like okay. I'll spend three hundred dollars on a blazer that I think will last forever. You know that kind of thing. Then there are still these artificial lines. Like I wouldn't spend four hundred dollars wager. That's crazy. Yeah exactly and maybe the upshot is just that there's maybe something always a little bit emotional and illogical and our relationship with money because I still will not sometimes I will go parkin economy and walk a quarter mile rather than park in the parking deck. Because it's eight dollars more a day and I don't know there's something like sit down in your first class right but I'm willing to my mind but I like I really wanted to save those eight dollars like it just made me connect with my childhood split-second or something like that. Yeah exactly or like I turn my daughter's dresses discouraged when they're too big for her and you need to do to save money. Thanks saved seven dollars for like two hours of Labor to turn this thing into a different article. Okay so back to the the the writing process so I saw an instagram post of yours and I actually saw this a couple months ago and I showed it to Catherine because you took a picture of like a word document on your computer and you basically had like a chunk of text and then in brackets. Start here thoughtful. Here's something up or you actually able to kind of parachute back in and then not right as seen in flow kind of actually wait and wait and wait and then come up with the perfect graph or seen. Does that work that like insert this year? It's been something between the two of us now. We're we're like insert Mandel okay. We'll come back to say something profound here. That's my whole document. By the way yes in certain certain third. It doesn't work for me when I actually like writing writing the draft but at that point I yeah I was looking at that Jay and trying to figure out like wellard going on I feel like that was about my second or third round of editorial boat. She's like there was already a novel but I don't remember exactly an editor must have sad. I think we need to seeing here with bench. And whoever or she needs to say something in the boat sank like whatever it was so yeah. I couldn't. I couldn't do that when I was just writing but But Yeah I guess for revisions that worked for me. But you know it makes me think And comparing myself in any way with Joan Radian had this amazing thing I read once she'd read where it was very. It was the first draft of one of her essays or whatever short stories Does she short stories a piece of fiction as the? Yeah in the tax that was like x x x. He said putting his cigarette execs xxx and it was like she just had a beat but having the content which means so yeah. It was kind of cool to see that that can be done. But I couldn't do that. Were strapped your. Because i always if i'm writing and i don't have like you know there's a if you're reading a sentence and then there's that little inside your brain that's like you can't. There's something more to say here. You can say this in a way that like I need a metaphor here. I need a metaphor here. But you know there's conflicting advice on. How long do you sit there trying to think of the metaphor before? You're certain that that metaphor will suck if you use it like what is that timeframe for just moving on and you know I think about it in the first draft. I reason like several drafts in. I will have points in attacks where it's just like a wine of X.'s. And those are there so that when I'm revising later I can do like a search for like xxxxx and that I find those points united scripted tag. Really something bessinger. Something's wrong what speaking of inspiration especially in this book you have so many amazing locations in the Glass Hotel do you as a writer. Do you actually try to go to all of these places for inspiration or how much of it is kind of Google search versus? Maybe you were on your one eighty at the right location patching crew. Lax Places. That I've just been to now through the course of my life. I I know writers who will travel for Research and that's somehow always seem like such a luxury to me. I you know it used to be well. How do I take enough vacation? Time my day job to spend a week wherever And now it's like what do I do with my four year old while I'm gallivanting around Greece or you know whatever it is that they want to research so yeah you know I take opportunities To travel interesting places as they come But yeah so I guess. I've never really traveled specifically for research. I'm most comfortable writing about places where I've spent a lot of time So Vancouver Island New York i. I've never been to Dubai but I feel like that's okay in this book because Dubai's like fantasy life so it doesn't have to be so as we've mentioned you. You wrote three previous novels before station. Eleven in the Class Hotel and I'm wondering even in the lead up to station eleven which just blew up in a way that your three previous books hadn't did you have a little sense that you had written something special in different like really. I think I think people are going to really love this one or did he catch you. By surprise the response to it. A little bit of both is so yeah. Published published three novels for the very small press called unbridled. Bugs they were wonderful. I had such good editor at their. Everybody was so dedicated to books and writing. But it's so hard to find readers. They smell press. You know there. Just isn't the marketing muscle to compete with a penguin random house which is kind of sad. Because there's a lot of talent small press world but yeah I'd published three Bucks To be absolutely honest there was a little bit done with thirty two dollars. Royalty checks no not no. I would have been okay with being administrative assistant forever and also writing. I just had this feeling as I was reading station. Eleven that maybe I've written something a little bit more commercially appealing than my first. Three bucks had been so it seemed like a good moment to try to make the jump to a bigger press and it just worked out better than I ever would've magic and you know it was kind of amazing. The book was sold at Auction. Which means it was a bidding war and it was yeah. It was really an extraordinary experience. There were even then I was. I would worry that the book wouldn't sell see how long pat from selling books to your publisher to you know come buddy year later and I'm like reviews started coming in and it sells or a dozen But yeah there was really good early signs That it was That it would be successful. It's really but the book feels like winning the lottery. You know say say not to denigrate the book anyway. I do believe in it. But there's such an incredible element of luck. Involved in terms of which book is commercially successful. One which isn't and yeah every just never could have predicted or imagined and speaking of we read the past life. You were a dancer and I know. You've answered this question so many times before but just for our listeners. How how did you start writing? How did you become a writer? Make the leap that pure pure wet. That's fun why agree like fondue. Fondue gold as a kid which I know that I grew up in western Canada. British Columbia What I'd tell Americans homeschool they get this sort of wary. Look on their face producer. Rooms huge gunning. She's like okay. Through and happy signs saying if you stand in certain parts of the. Us kind of taken its code. I like really hard. Core anti-science fundamentalist Christianity like. We're keeping the kids home so never hear the name Darwin but my my parents Parents are happy that was just kind of the counterculture back to the land thing to do in the eighties. So they And the schools around us weren't that great so they kept me home for kindergarten just experiment and then the experiment somehow kept going until I was like fifty but there was a period of time when I was eight or nine years old. When one of the requirements the curriculum was that. I had to write something every day. So that got me into the habit of writing from a really early age and it was just something that. I truly loved. I thought of it as a hobby because I was hell bent on dancer. Now it's one of those kids who are the ballet studio six days a week. It was pretty intense. I went to school for Contemporary Damn after high school. I went to the School of Trinidad Theatre Conservatory Program and this was kind of surprised but by the time I graduated. I kind of didn't love it anymore. Sometimes sometimes if thing that you want to do for your whole life can start to feel like a little bit of Chore Not a joy and that was just really no our pleasure so yeah that. Kinda raised the obvious question like here I was. I didn't have a high school diploma. I've never bothered to get my. Gd I done a year of community college and then three years and non degree granting conservatory program..

"I wish you could have all been here to see kate. React when we actually booked this author for the show or seen my behavior in the attempt to book this author more this show. It's unfortunate that doesn't have a pair of tap shoes because she would have been quite performer. Doing a little tap dance. Happy tap dance all around the house. That's really interesting because I think even if I had tap shoes I wouldn't tap dance because I'm too much of a basketball player to get caught up in something like tap dance. But that's exactly what I mean you normally have swagger in stride but because we booked emily St. John Mandell author of station eleven and the newly released the Glass Hotel. You were doing a little dance where your feet were all a dainty and you're tiptoeing around and you were bouncy and you're so excited you should remember this moment when you called me dainty that's adorable. I am so excited to have emily. St. John Mendel on the show because I I love station eleven and we loved her new book. The Glass Hotel. And as you'll hear in the conversation we talk about a couple of themes in the. Glass Hotel like one. Is this concept of money as its own country whose country there you go and then the other that is near and dear to my heart and a thread that runs through a lot of emily. St. John Mandl's work is like this apocalyptic craving. That's what I call it. The in a non Zombie Way. Yeah because station. Eleven was about a pandemic. And so there you go. There's your apocalyptic thread and then she has a character in the Glass Hotel that when when this character is very young posits this question of kind of craving being a part of a kind of apocalyptic moment and is that something that's inside all of us so this is where Kate and I completely go our separate ways in the would less traveled path. I wear tap shoes as I go my separate way you do you. You tap down the yellow brick road and to darkness darkness and despair and zombies. Yeah I mean I think we already talked about it in the season. One of the first things that she had us to watch contagion as soon as we were in our stay at home order which is not exactly the kind of movie that I would like to watch and it's not for. I don't go into paranoia mode but I also I just. I don't understand the fantasy with the world falling apart. Yes so this is something that we have touched. On in previous seasons possibly previous episodes. I have this deep. Seated internal leaning to anything apocalyptic post-apocalyptic any momentous historical shift in human life. I feel a craving toward and it's not an intellectual craving like I know it creates pain in wreaks havoc and there's often all of the obviously moments that lead to death and destruction and a reshaping or maybe just an ending of the world and I'm talking about movies and books and all that so intellectually. I realized that something ridiculous to like feel like leaning.

"So wise. It's really smart thing and then you started there. I mean I met him when they were little. I was remembering this thing that they were probably six or seven. If they're sixteen and seventeen. Now that we were I was in Marin County and hiking and I ran into on the trail and minuses about the same age. At that time. We're visiting from Michigan. And I was like 'cause even think about this. It was like ten years ago when it was now sexist. Maybe there's more people doing what we're doing and it's but then you're just like on the Mamasu Dryden yes. These are my girls and I talked to them about their vaginas masturbation and I was like my brother. Maybe or my sister-in-law. Their heads were like these are my. You can't talk about sex and they always say how your Mama Sudafed put a love that you've done that because why you are really been the one like taking the shame of it. Let why should we set our kids up for failure? Let's set him up for success in that way and we just so brave and it's also it's important to do this stuff when it's low stakes right like when they're young and they you know they gotta develop into this healthy sexuality right. I guess it's super important case. So then that's where it starts with that. And then how does it move because your kids have really what I love about the book that you are including like it's casual blogs in here because you have been living the work now? Your girls have grown up with this. So there's just so much more I mean even love the first part where you're talking about when they find your vibrator little and you're brushing your teeth. That was actually the very first moment of being vulnerable with them and everything and and so the story with. This is my oldest. I was in the bathroom brushing my teeth and I left a little tiny bullet vibrating. You know the kind of lipstick left it on the counter and I could hear her cat like bouncing skipping another great. I put it in the drawer and I closed the door continue. Brush my teeth and she has into get a hairbrush and of course she opens the door. Just put it in and to. It's like brushing my teeth. But my eyes are like as big as saucers and she's like mom. What's this I said at the vibrator put it away? And she's like no what does it do and she's playing with an fussing with it and didn't have an on off. It was just like a twist and twisted it on as I gets for your private parts since. She's on her eyes off. Crossword I've crosser. Iras for head down her nose and you're tired. She said it tickles. I said well imagine what it feels. Like on your private parts. She turned it off. Put in the door closed door and just bounced out of the room. Got It dodge a bullet or like yeah. It was it was I think. In that moment she realized I was GonNa be honest with her. Like I'm going to tell you point like seven. I WANNA say she was six or seven. Yeah it was like it was right when we went back to school. Yeah so she would have been an seven and so so yeah. It was It was just this moment and it was a nothing moment for her. It was really nothing moment. Like she did not even know she remembers it actually highly not but But for me it was like scared senseless practically said. Who's honest and the funny thing is when I tell women they're like Oh oh that's interesting. Yeah Okay I don't think I would have had a hard time bubba but usually men get like really like. Oh my God you talked to your daughter about that right. How'd you get worse? I of course we did not me. I always a your youtube. You're you porn merits. You can act that but it's true like it's like you have. Two parents are not well equipped. That's why this book is so is so great because it's not even like it's not even like people always WanNa know from each six to ten helmets and I've even been like well. Maybe you should yet ten to fourteen. But every kid's different Eric. It's different blind your vibrators. Something happens earlier than you talk about. You don't lie so the book also Thais approach it is not an ages and stages thing because it is. It's exactly what you said. There's going to be something that happens and brings the topic up and you're going to have to deal with it right there there and you know. So it's it's less ages and stages I think of it more like it's like zooming out like thirty thousand foot view like okay. How do we? What's the goal here? The goal is to have a healthy sexuality right. We want people to develop and be happy and healthy and and satisfied and you know bullets for the difference. Gene Sex and sexuality. Now don't your kids about that. Yeah herself about that. Yeah I there's so much as it relates to Sexuality Right. I mean I have to laugh about this and and I don't know if it was the same for you like I entered school thinking I knew everything right like. Oh Yeah I got this. I know what this is i. I always like beginner's mind like oh I WANNA learn. Yeah Patronizing I. Didn't I was like okay? Sex like I know this but like stupid I mean it was just it was a it was a very immature way of thinking in my mind because there was just there was so much more right and I. I laughed because I am constantly learning as well as I've gone back to be in her mind developed. I'm always learning. I feel like there's so much more impact in the more that we grow and learn and there's more layers and I realized that's life. I've always thought that once I get through this phase that everything's GonNa be easier whatever note. There's always more to unpack mortem. Pack and sex is the same thing. It's like how it's literally a topic like health sex cooking. Yeah working whatever sex so yeah I always like I mean I don't remember everything. Hits you different time so I'm always getting reinspired your girl so now I love that. They're like sixteen seventeen but through his journey. Like let me give you some examples. Things that come in like a parent or friend with like okay so. I just found out that my son is masturbating and watching porn. What do I do? And maybe their son is thirty. Okay so first of all the big question is how much have you talked to your kids about sex? Nothing at all by didn't talk to me about sex. I'm not talking him around. The MOM like no nothing. So it's it's a question of where do you want your kids to learn about sex and you said it's either you or you or you will you too? It's it is honestly that and so we can't get mad at our kids if they problem solve right and the problem is they're trying the problem they're trying to solve is learning about sex and if no one's telling them they're going to use they're going to google they're gonNA use the best resources they have and we kind of get mad at him for doing what we would expect them to do if they were to solve a problem so The thing that's important also to tell your kids if you're going to talk if you're not gonNA talk about sex at the very least you have to tell them that everything else that they do see out. There is someone else's fantasy and it's not necessarily real. It's not necessarily what they're seeing on the Internet porn. All that is not real right. It's it's not to unlike. Is there for your entertainment? One person decided this was hot. Other people agreed. That might not be your fancy but then but then that's all they see with sex in kids are thinking that's actually how it goes down. Yes you tell them. It's just not real. Yeah I mean it also depends on where they're going like if they go to a good site like Cindy Gallop almost forgot her name. L. Sandy islands maker not porn. Yeah let's talk about. Yeah okay. So that's a good resource. I heard they can access that without the paywall though. I don't know that's the problem. This book is so good really talk. Illuminate Dr Liana. Say John Reid me. A parental primer for the talk getting Kozo multi-layered so the parents have never even talked about it so they kind of say it's okay keep it in your like. It's not real and here. Do you think that they should give them like like wipe Sir Loubser? Well I mean the things you should talk about our height it become a hygiene issue right like make sure that you give them some good. I mean get them some good lube or give them some like 'cause they could chafe if they're using or Shane who Yeah Shampoo. Yes it depends on what they're using right like sometimes it's not always the greatest but if you know they're masturbating you can give them a good stuff. Yeah fine stuff. That's body safe and not necessarily got all kinds of stuff. That's not so great in it. You know it feels weird to say that out loud but yeah I mean it's a it's it's sexual health right One of that when I was teaching the college students at CCS F. We used to talk about one of the assignments. I gave them us as a choice. Was To genital self exam and you know I had one student. She was in her. It was a student in the working adult degree program so she was advanced years and she was going back to get her degree finally and she adult kids and and she told me that she had this. Is this gentle self exam assignment? That she just she put it off. Would often walk. Did Not want to do it. She finally did it and she was like you know learning about her body and learning to name our ecology. Well she got sixty. Okay Oh sixty okay. And she was doing this for the first time and she came back and she relayed the story and she said you know it surprised me how I let other people tell me what I looked like all these years and I finally got a chance to take a look and and you know by the end of the. I locked my bedroom door. Lock my bathroom too hard. I know kids are come in and I finally sat down to this the genital self exam. She's like by the end of it. I had my underwear and I was like Relondo my head like and you know somebody who is sixty. It's this is. This is important information about your body regardless of how old you are and if you teach your kids to know what they you know how they feel what it looks like. It's not a sexual thing to take care of your sexual health. Let's talk how you did this with your girls because I think that is so it's like how do you teach them about pleasure and about consented about their bodies and orgasm because my next thing was like people often say Shit I get my daughter vibrator you know my daughter's sixteen just get her vibrator but they've never talked about sex before so awkward and you've been checking right you haven't packing with your kids since they were young so. I can't wait to hear you have handled this wondering how much age or what did you so I mean. I think it's been different for me because I talk about this stuff with them and also because I get toys sent to me right so I've had stacks of toys and eventually my daughter asked me about one and so when she was curious I I allowed it. I mean you said this is a toy that you mom mommy uses to. Please don't even need to say that because by that point you know she'd because it was only it was only in the last couple of years so we'd already had a huge foundation so talk with that foundational. Did you have them like? Did you sit with them? While they did a vet like an exam generals. Did you look now? You never know but they just I just I've I've explained things and I've let them do what they're going to do. Because it's it's almost like you don't need to encourage it. You just need to acknowledge it. So when did you talk about? How did you talk to them? About Masturbation pleasure and I'm sure for you. It's like a guy always explaining water to a fish. 'cause it's like air like how do they not like it was everything it was like? Did you brush your teeth? Did you do the laundry of you like? Here's how you can. I don't know I probably was but it away that people can understand. How do they address? Masturbation covering starting somewhere else with our kids too so. I think this is where also I and I'm speaking from my experience. just kids touching themselves is is not masturbation but it's not masturbation to orgasm right like that's. I think adults get in their heads that that's what they're intending to do when they're like little toddlers right like no they're just like literally touching because it feels good right. It feels amazing to just touch your parts right. Whatever part you're GONNA touch And so it was just. It was a conversation that I just told them. You know. Just make sure your hand clean yet you know. Don't do it in public. I don't even know how to do it now. Because it consent part to don't allow anyone else to because it's part of your the model to and yesterday the Plus model and then the five pillars that people should talk about.
"st john" Discussed on Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution!
"Be with Heidi and her family and the firmly planted homeschool resource center with a bunch of families there and God just did amazing things while we were there got his doing amazing things out that resource center and he's he is just blessing that home school community leaps and bounds so if you haven't checked out the resource center and even if you're not in the area just look at it online and see the things that they are doing and maybe it will encourage you to do something like that in your area in the next month or so we will be a new podcast that I recorded with Abby Rinella that will give a little bit more detail on what's going on with our family and with the movie and all thinks go house rocked so stay tuned for that we want to say thank you to Heidi and the Saint John family as well as those who are at the firmly planted homeschool resource center for their amazing hospitality they just welcome to send like family and we loved getting to know them and and I'm just getting to see the amazing things that God is doing in the Vancouver Washington and Portland area We also want to say thank you to those who donated who prayed for us and who just sent letters of encouragement to us as we were traveling across the country to finish filming the movie it was amazing to see how so many of you around us to get this done to finish this movie and now in post production and excited to see how it's going to provide for that as well so thank you for those of you who continue to stand with us through this journey since we were already on the West Coast we of course had to travel south and we've been able to spend time with friends and family for the past a few weeks as a matter of fact I'm sitting in my mom's guests during right now recording this intro on Garrett iphone which is really kind of funny because I'm used to recording and a little makeshift studio that we have but we're not in Georgia to do that were in California and so we have enjoyed being here with family and friends going to enjoy much needed fellowship with them. There are a lot of exciting things coming up with the movie and with schoolhouse rock to so make sure that you're signed up for the schoolhouse rock sledders you can do that on schoolhouse rock dot com and keep up with what we've got going on in the meantime enjoy this episode and have a great day All right I want to take a few minutes and introduce my guest if that's actually been on the show with me before this and I love having people on here who are changing in the culture who are out there and just really making a difference for the Kingdom and enter has been Garrett are doing that they've been married for twenty five years and they got a couple of kids spend some time with me at my little neck of the woods at the Home School Resource Center this summer in Vancouver and we are just thrilled by what God is doing so asked her if she can come on the show with me today and we're GonNa talk about homeschooling vet welcome back thank you thank you I'm glad that you're here how you guys doing we're doing great that you're just hanging enraging doing all the things that you do getting ready for home schooling we are producing a movie yes I love it okay so for we have a lot of new listeners of the podcast since you were here last and by way of introduction you guys have quite an interesting story to tell you sold your home what in two thousand sixteen Yes yes and then you travelled out to the east coast guess and then you sold your your trailer and then you travel out to the West because he me interesting interesting right so what's going on why why would you do that well in two thousand six eighteen we felt like the Lord had put it on our hearts to film this documentary on home schooling and at the same time sell our house and most of our possessions slowed up in an RV and travel across the tree to film this documentary on home schooling and so so we did and we've been on the road for a few years now and it's been a really exciting thing just to see how God's hand has moved miraculously ways and the name of the documentary is schoolhouse rock you guys are talking about really a revolution happening around the country partic- really where education is concerned and people talk to me all the time of course I'm out on the road speaking to home schoolers but also to people who are thinking that home school thing you know I see is happening in the schools but I'm not really sure if I can do it at home are using this sort of the same thing happening like people are pulling their kids out of school yes yes all over the place we have been now I think to somewhere around thirty four states and we have met home school families along the way and most of those states and across the board is pretty much the same thing MOMS you're not feel like they are capable or equipped to home school their kids but it's it's been the most exciting thing because we get to talk to moms like yourself who have been there and who have grudges waited kids and who has come alongside of US moms and say you can do this you know if if God's calling you to it he's going to have you with everything you need to be able to accomplish it and that is not keep house plants alive and seven kids than anyone can do it yes anyone can do it I think sometimes we over think it do you think I think so yes well because it seems Gary because you look at what the school system is like on the outside and we feel like we need to bring that into our homes replicate it and it's impossible to do that and so when we can't replicate at that we feel like we're failing somehow yeah which is not the case of course no and I think it the revolution that you guys are highlighting in school house rock is this is the revolutionary idea the schools are actually doing it wrong right and when parents can come home and actually foster love of learning in their kids amazing things happen it kids are natural born learners they come into the world ready to learn and we've said through no child left behind and the ridiculous thing known as common core rate that our kids are all the same and so what works for my kid is going to work for you guys have two kids are the same not at all no that's a shocking that's a shocking fact you never talked to parents who say oh my kid is exactly like this all into the same box and it's impossible yeah to do that and so they end up either being left behind or being bored out of their minds and it's it's detriment until two kids and you talk about it being a revolution the interesting thing is it is revolution today but it's only been in the last one hundred sixty years or so that's right we've put our into these institutions called school right and but for years and years parents home schooled their kids taught their kids at home yeah and and and no made fun of him for it right socially awkward I love my friend Sam Sorbo and I were talking about this not too long ago and she was saying I say this many has I think it's just so powerful when did we start to buy the lie that the minute your kid turns five school district comes in and says Oh thank you good job and we can take it from here you bring your thank you for teaching and brush their teeth and you know thank you for getting them potty trained and in some cases even wait that long right before we take him to the school and the school is supposed to do what we can't do and I think the net result of that has been it's made parents feel Sort of inept right yes we just feel like well we what do we gotta give him to somebody else right right and the thing is it's not even about the academics you know we talk a lot about this and we've talked a lot about this in the movie is that home schooling is is important that academics are important because that's what points are children towards Christ but it's it's not parenting about academics it's about disabling training the hearts of our children and home schooling allows you to do that because when you're putting them in a classroom with someone else to train them for thirty five or forty.
