13. Why Surrender isn't Giving up Part 2
This is part 2 of my interview with Jacie Jimenez about the healing and restoration of her marriage.  Jacie bravely shares her own journey of self-acceptance, inner healing and how she began to find her true worth and identity in God.  I pray her story will give hope to women in hurting marriages, that the restoration of their marriage begins as the pursue the deep healing of their own hearts.  We can't fix our spouse or make things better on our own effort or power, but we can take responsibility for our own story and journey by deeply surrendering to God.  We all have wounds in our hearts that God wants to speak to and heal.  Listen to this two part series and be inspired to begin your own healing journey on the path to receive the fullness of life that God has for you too!

5. Tips for bringing deeper connection, understanding, and healing in your marriage
In today’s show you will hear an interview I had with my friend Stephanie from the 500 Seconds to Joy Podcast. We discuss how important it is for us to take a look at our own stories in order to begin to understand the hows and whys of our interactions with our spouse, which can lead to pain and conflict. The more we can understand and communicate our stories and what triggers our responses, the more we can grow in compassion and understanding with our spouse. As we reconnect with each other, a new path of transformation opens up, our marriage begins to heal, and love can grow.

4. Sin & Suffering Along the Path to Healing & Holiness
In this episode we explore the reality that at the core, the journey of holiness is a journey of healing, not one of will power or a list of dos and don’ts that we have to figure out how to follow. Transformative holiness requires that we consent to deep vulnerability with Christ, where we allow him into the deepest places of our hearts, so he can restore and renew us… As we unpack our story with Christ we gain insights and begin to recognize the lies that hold us back from receiving the fullness of life Christ died to give us.  If we can embrace vulnerability with the Lord, we can begin to move along the path where our crosses, sin, and suffering lead us to resurrection and new life.
