Reflections of Grace 85: How to Heal Your “Father Wounds”

ReflectionsOfGrace_thumbnail

[display_podcast] I want to give you a few examples from former clients, with fictional names of course, of what I have come to recognize as a father wound...Caden had trouble just being himself…He always had to wear a mask of perfection for fear of not being accepted.  No one knew the real Caden.  Inside he yearned for love and validation and thought the only way he could do that is be someone other than who he is.  Underneath he had violent anger always brewing.  What is at the root?  H … [Read more...]

Real Stuff My Dad Says 78: Who Do You Think You Are? (How Rachel Dolezal Impacts Your Family)

Real-Stuff-My-Dad-Says-Thumbnail-BIG

[display_podcast] I remember so many times as a boy wanting to go somewhere, do something, wear something, or buy something that “everyone else” was doing. Peer pressure took up residency in our home in a big way for a number of years – as is the case in almost all homes with teenagers. My parents would say the perfunctory, “If Brian jumped off a bridge, would you?” (Sadly, I now find myself pulling this one out when flabbergasted by my own pre-teen) But, after the dust settled, the message m … [Read more...]

Carty’s Contemporary Classics: Take A Look At The Snake, part 1

Carty Thumbnail

The first time sin happened was not in the Garden of Eden. The first time it happened was when Lucifer wanted to set his throne above the stars of God. God had made Lucifer His most beautiful creature, but Lucifer wasn’t happy being number two. Now, sin had never entered God’s creation before, and it shuttered when somebody said, “No” to God. So one third of the angelic host went with Satan, and all of creation shuttered. Sin is wanting to set your throne above the stars of God. So when God te … [Read more...]

Christian Home & Family: Help Your Kids Fight the Condemning Voice in Their Heads

Christian Home and Family Square

Everyone fights those nagging little voices of condemnation that speak to their own minds. It’s part of the human condition. It’s that voice in your head that repeats things like: “I am so worthless. I am such a failure. I am not worthy of anything…” We all experience this. Parents, you have to know that your kids are going to struggle with those same issues. In fact, they probably already do, even the younger ones. But for Christians, there is a powerful way to deal with those lies, and it’s … [Read more...]

Reflections of Grace 85: Overcoming Relational Wounds

ReflectionsOfGrace_thumbnail

[display_podcast] Today I want to talk about unhealed relationship wounds...I had a client I will call Georgia ...she had finally reached the end of her rope when she came in for coaching.  She was on her 3rd husband and could not understand why he was so much like the former 2 husbands who were rageful, controlling and vengeful.  She longed for a peaceful marriage but her feeble attempts to ‘fix’ these men had made her feel like such a failure and her husband helped her along with that by sayin … [Read more...]

Real Stuff My Dad Says 77: “Can We All Get Along?”

Real-Stuff-My-Dad-Says-Thumbnail-BIG

[display_podcast] I have two podcasts / blogs that each come from my perspective of a Christian parent of four boys and are aimed toward other Christ-following, Bible-believing people who have a spare ten minutes in their day to hear what I (and often my dad) have to say. But lately, judging by many of the comments that I have received, it appears that my audience has expanded to people whom I hadn’t originally intended. It seems like a lot of people who abhor the term “Evangelical”, people who … [Read more...]
