Forgiveness is one of the most important aspect of our relationship with Jesus. It is based off us repenting from our sins, accepting Jesus into our hearts, and accepting his forgiveness for our sins. But, what does accepting this forgiveness look like? What does it look like in our interpersonal relationships? And, what does it look like to to apply self-forgiveness?

For those who have experienced shame, forgiveness may be a diffi...

On today's episode, I'll be discussing the red flags in Christian relationships. So many couples today are dating without asking questions that are critical to aligning with some key Christian values that are instrumental to their own personal walk with Christ. 

I discuss what Christian belief "red flags" to look out for if you're about to enter or are in a dating relationship:  
- Deconstruction - "I'm in...

For my 50th episode, I decided to do an episode on answering questions about shame in relationships. This is an important topic, because I think most couples have something that they have experienced in their past which can be shameful to share in a relationship. 

It can also breed fear, because if you share this experience from you past, you essentially place the ball on the other person's court and they get to decide whether t...

The Bible warns us about "wolves in sheep's clothing" and one of the most evident ways in which we see them at work is when they prey on women in the church. They find ways to integrate themselves into the functions of the church by being charismatic, ideas-filled, enthusiastic, and articulate speakers. For some, they may not see this as a problem, but for those of us who have encountered the profiles of such characters...

Christians love reading the Psalms! It brings us peace, comfort, truth, and joy. But, it also brings to the forefront the various emotions of everyday life: sadness, depression, anxiety, anger, and fear. The Psalms teach us much about how God interacts with us through the difficulties and tribulations of everyday life. 

On today's episode, Dr. Gary Yates addresses the following questions:
- Why do Christians love reading the Psal...

First of all, let me say that my guest, Patrick Hubbard, and I love the church. The church is the Bride of Christ and as Christians, we must learn to love her more and more as the day of Christ draws near when He will return for his Bride. 

That being said, we also know that Christians who go to church have also caused a lot of pain for our own brothers and sisters in Christ. 

In this episode, Patrick and I discuss what those issues ...

Deconstruction has been a word we have been hearing more and more in Christians circles, and it is something that I both am empathetic towards but also very concerned for how common its become. Though a stage of questioning one's faith is expected in the life of a Christian, it seems that it has made many today turn away from their long-held beliefs than helping them grow in their relationship with Christ.

Emotions. They're difficult to talk about, and even more difficult when you grew up in an environment where you were told to suppress them. Intimacy is even more difficult because in order to develop it, you have to be able to identify and regulate what you feel to communicate with others at a deeper level. This ultimately has an impact on how deep our relationship with God can be.

Can your testimony to those around you be an idol in your life? Do you feel like God has been punishing you for past sins?

Then, this episode is for you! 👍

One of the most difficult discussions to have within the church has to be the issues surrounding spiritual, emotional, mental, and sexual abuse. So much damage and pain has been done by pastors and leaders who have not learned how to exercise godly authority over the flock they are supposed to protect and lead. 

This is part 2 of a series where I am covering different elements and situations on how abusers operate within the church....

To understand the origin of sin is to understand the origin of shame. As we see in the garden of Eden, when Adam and Eve ate of the fruit that they were prohibited from eating, their eyes "were opened, and they knew that they were naked." This led them to "hide" themselves from God's presence when they heard Him walking in the garden." And why did they hide? They experienced shame--knowing what it meant to b...

Christians who have been hurt, disregarded, or forgotten by the church can often conclude that going to church is no longer important, but in this episode, we hope to remind all believers that the body of Christ is essential for our walk with Christ. It is nearly impossible to mature without being able to confess our sins to one another, serve one another, be encouraged by one another, and forgiving one another. Fellowship with oth...

How to Untangle the Complexities of Child-on-Child Abuse in the Context of the Church

This is a very difficult topic, but a necessary one to protect our families and churches. Sexual abuse in the church has taken many forms, but the complexities grow even greater when children are involved. There are psychological, medical, legal, and spiritual concerns at play, and it can be very difficult to navigate through it all.

When you think about the church, you usually don't think about Christians shaming other Christians, right? Or, maybe you do? 

This has definitely been the case when it comes to the church's involvement in social justice issues. Progressive Christians have strongly criticized and shamed conservative Christians for not being involved, while the concern that conservative Christians have had is that the focus on social justice i...

When it comes to counseling, minority communities face some interesting and dynamic challenges, much of which has to do with messaging that is received from family, culture, social media, and even political sources.

It also doesn't help that there is a strong stigma attached to seeking help through counseling. 

In this episode, John and I discuss:
- what challenges are faced by Latino and African-American communities, 
- how histor...

Dating has changed quite a bit since the early to late 2000s. In my counseling experience, there is no greater complaint I receive from Christian women about dating than when it comes to understanding whether or not they are actually in a relationship.

The stages are so blurred nowadays that no one really knows how to proceed or how to define the relationship. 

Dating today is better described as people seeking to connect and create ...

It's really amazing to see how much of our childhood experiences with our parents shape how we view God when we become adults. 

If our parents were uninvolved, harsh, or absent, then we will tend to see God the same way. If our parents were involved, loving, and present, then we can make an easy transition to seeing God be the same way. 

The key to understanding God, however, is not through our experiences with how our parents ra...

Fear.

It was the first emotion experienced after Adam and Eve sinned against God, and it is also the strongest emotion we experience in everyday life, though at different levels. Consequently, it has also significantly impacted how we understand ourselves in relationships.

Fear stems from shame as we see in Genesis 3. And the fear that Adam and Eve experienced is that of being FULLY KNOWN which is one of the prominent fears in relat...
