Bright Tomorrows - a story about mental illness and two psychotic breaks
01:01:00
Tim and Nancy's story should inspire anyone about what it takes to stay committed to each other through "sickness and in health"! Tim wrote: Since 1979 I have lived with the consequences of a brain-based mental health challenge called bipolar disorder. Through these years I have experienced episodes of extreme mania, protracted periods of dark depression, as well as eruptions of psychosis. Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison, a leading authority and herself a diagnosed bipolar, clearly expresses the effects of this brain disorder in her book, “Touched with Fire.” She wrote that bipolar illness “encompasses the extremes of human experience. Thinking can range from florid psychosis, or ‘madness,’ to patterns of unusually clear, fast, and creative associations, to retardation [slowing down] so profound that no meaningful activity can occur.”* This very succinctly and accurately describes how I have often experienced bipolar disorder. Hear their story through this special interview and learn how to "reflect the compassion of Jesus Christ to those with mental health concerns".

Relentless Community
00:50:00
Relentless Community Hebrews 10:23-25 “23 Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. 24 Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.” Live your life each day with a purpose, to stir one another to acts of love and good works. Why do you wake up each day? If you don’t ask yourself this question, you are purposeless which is like lifelessness. Community isn’t a story, it’s an experience and filled with story after story after story.  It’s why I came here for my surgery. I knew I would be Loved Not judged Encouraged Filled with hope God’s plan for your life is to wake up each day and… Choose hope (v23) Because he is a promise keeper, and there is nothing we need to fear But this isn’t the kind of hope you sit on, your hope should stir you up to act, and guess what God wants you to do with this hope? Stir up each other to love and good worksConsider each other

Relentless Grace
00:56:00
Relentless Grace No matter how far you run away or how disobedient you are, God still loves you and bathes you with His unending grace Phillip Holmes wrote, “He’s not ignorant of all the ways we’ve sinned against him. He knows everything we’ve ever done and is able to stomach it. His knowledge of who we really are will never hinder his love for us. He’s even aware of the evil behind our righteous deeds. The intimacy by which the Lord knows us but is able to lovingly embrace us as his children is supernatural. God’s grace is mind-blowing. Every time I think of this reality, I’m brought to tears because I serve a God whose love and grace baffle me.” https://www.desiringgod.org/articles/gods-grace-is-mind-blowing I blatantly rejected the voice of the Holy Spirit Heaviest - 138 kilograms I’ve lost 18 kilograms in three weeks No pain, no recovery, no problems of any kind! Joel 2:12-14 'But there’s also this, it’s not too late— God ’s personal Message!— “Come back to me and really mean it! Come fasting and weeping, sorry for your sins!” Change your life, not just your clothes. Come back to God, your God. And here’s why: God is kind and merciful.He takes a deep breath, puts up with a lot, This most patient God, extravagant in love, always ready to cancel catastrophe. Who knows? Maybe he’ll do it now, maybe he’ll turn around and show pity. Maybe, when all’s said and done, there’ll be blessings full and robust for your God! God’s pleasure is to give you the Kingdom!

Top 10 Ways to Hack Your Husbands Sex Drive
00:38:00
  Initiate don’t hesitate… “So slide over here; And give me a moment; Your moves are so raw; I've got to let you know; I've got to let you know; You're one of my kind…” “Honestly, do you really even need a list?” so said my 20 yr old daughter! Be open to change and creativity. Build excitement and anticipation. Serve up a five star meal, meat and potatoes or a fast food meal. Enjoy sex with him, because he truly desires your pleasure too! Stop criticizing him for being a man, sex is not just for pleasure, it is also his way to bond with you and connect emotionally. Leave the lights on for a possible change, men tend to be visually stimulated. Be affirming. Plan sex.  That’s right, talk with your husband and discover how many times he’d enjoy having sex in a month and what kinds of things he enjoys.

How to survive the drive! Keep it positive Give each other the benefit of the doubt Are you really supposed to blow everything off? No, you can’t really, but before you say anything Ask yourself, “Is this a life or death issue?” “Could I be judged for the same thing?” In the heat of the moment, should you wait, even if it’s just five minutes? What’s my goal in saying anything...Shame? Apology? Correct? In order to survive the drive, chill, take a breath, and keep these questions front and center if anything comes up.

Your Story Matters John and Erin
00:47:00
Have you ever wanted to quit on your relationship, because you feel like it’s just too hard?  We’ve got another episode of Your Story Matters today, meet John and Erin Kadleck. Your story is God’s story.  He gets the glory for your redemption. They rushed to get married, because he was getting deployed to Afghanistan. “He came back a different person.” “He was keeping things from me to protect me.” As he withdrew, she felt more rejected and felt like it was her fault. John would drink himself to sleep every night. Poor communication spiraled out-of-control. Sometimes our hearts are in the right place, but we have poor execution. John’s fear was that if he shared his struggles or fears, Erin would reject him. Holding the secrets from her, was a dark cloud in their relationship. After he shared, all Erin did was hug John. Erin had a strong commitment, and it was her commitment to the marriage and John that kept them together through the hard times. “I was pushing her away, isolating myself, and then getting upset that she wasn’t giving me what I wanted.” “Can people look at our marriage and see God.” John had to take ownership for his actions.  “Whatever heat rounds she sent my way, I deserved it, and I needed to take it.” The only way John could overcome the ography addiction and the shame from the affair was to run to God.  He had to pray through breaking the cycle of addiction and surrendering to God. “Break these chains for me!”

Your Story Matters Amanda Voigt - Infertility
00:37:00
"Though paved with pain and heartache, the seasons I struggled the most have also become the seasons I cherish the most. For in those seasons, I found myself at the feet of a good, good Father, lavished with grace, mercy and hope." Amanda Voigt Amanda’s journey with infertility. How did it all unravel? “It’s lonely.”  “Your friends get the dream and you’re not.” “I had to be excited to see my best friend’s baby in the hospital.” How does it feel when people try to “Christianese” your suffering. “It’s a blow when you’re already down.” You just need to sit with someone and try to feel what they are feeling. Don’t try and make it better or find answers for them. How did you manage the process of infertility? Looking to adopt. Insurance ended up paying for it with Luke’s new job. It’s not wrong to seek infertility treatment. What did your journey with God look like? “I got knocked to my knees.” Broke down with her mother, and her mother realized she couldn’t fix it for her. God spoke to her and reminded her to trust Him. He would walk with her along this journey. God doesn’t make mistakes.  He brings purpose out of the pain. “This is going to matter one day.” Trust God especially when it doesn’t feel good and you’re unhappy. Almost died from infection after giving birth to her first child. “God...she’s given up, don’t give up on us.” Luke, her husband prayed all night in the hospital room, and each time a nurse or doctor came into the room he would ask, “Is there something I can pray for you about?”

Is oral sex allowed for a Christian couple
00:11:00
I just received this question and it jumped right off the page at me! “Is oral sex something that is OK with the Lord, and, is it ok to dress up in a little nurse costume, or such. I know this sounds so crazy, but I am about to go out of my mind needing to know the answers to this question! We have two boys coming up and I want them to have the best life possible in the Lord………these questions are just not talked about enough! Thank you for your time and answer. May God richly bless you and all of your family! MICHAEL: I hate couples who miss out on the joy of sex with each other because they think there are some dos and don’ts—mainly developed through misconceptions. AMY: That’s right. As married couples, we should be the most open with one another. MICHAEL: But I just have to hear it from a female. Do you think oral sex is okay? AMY: I truly do think it’s okay. Within the confines of the relationship, I do. We are one man and one woman, and we are exploring each other’s bodies. We are created for each other’s pleasure. And part of that is oral sex. MICHAEL: Absolutely. So, there is nothing wrong with it. But it is okay, again, as long as you are enjoying each other sexually, exploring, coming up with new ideas for each other, and you are both on board. Once sex becomes a deal about me and what I want, and I don’t care what your opinion is or whether you are comfortable or not, then we have a problem.

My co-host Seth takes over the show today!  Seth wants to talk about ending well. Every good thing sometimes comes to an end Dating, marriage, business, etc. How to end well “Ending well means intentionally setting aside time for reflection and acknowledgment, time to name the cost, the enormity of the work and everything that has gone into it, and name the moments of grace and beauty that helped carry us through.” The Allender Center Don’t dismiss it or avoid it Embrace the awkwardness Don’t lie What are your favorite memories?

The over spiritualization syndrome
00:51:00
A single guy asked a question for the show that hit some serious buttons for me.  I wouldn’t say I’m angry, because I’m not, but I am definitely worked up because I feel like single Christian people get themselves into the most ridiculous situations because...well, I’ll save the rest for the show. “My ex girlfriend and I have been in and out of a relationship for the last two years. we recently started talking again. The reason for the in and out is because she went on a missions trip and started to feel like God may be calling her to full time ministry in another country. We both want to get married but everything that she feels God has been doing in her life over the past two years doesn't allow us to grow in our relationship because of the lack of security of not knowing if she will even be around for much longer if God "calls her" to the mission field. She has been unsure of her calling and doesn't know for sure if God is calling her so she's been pursuing different opportunities and something legit seems to be in the works. I'm open to full time ministry if God were to lay it on my heart but he hasn't in the way he has for her. And I don't think it's right for me to pursue ministry just because I don't want to lose her. The way things are now is that we don't talk every day. We talk as I say, "consistently, inconsistently." It's really been a waiting game to see what God does. I guess my question is, is this something she just needs to make a decision on or keep waiting for God to open the right door? I believe she's worth the wait but I struggle if it's the wise decision. Please advise!”

What we teach may harm your relationship
00:41:00
“You've talked about taking a timeout when things get too heated. I feel my husband uses this phrase as a way of avoiding the problems we face. Unfortunately, communication in our marriage has become so unpleasant and difficult that timeouts have become a lifestyle and we have virtually no communication. I'm talking like years and years, at least 15. At this point I feel we have no connection and no relationship, along with so many unresolved issues I don't even know where to start. We have been married for 35 yrs. I don't want to give up, but I do not want to live the rest of my life with a hostile stranger. HELP!” If this sounds like you...then listen to the show.

Is it ever ok to walk away from your marriage
00:41:00
Today we take on one of the shortest, yet intense questions asked by a listener yet! I’ll just let you read it for yourself, “Is there a walking away point in marriage?”  I don’t know...is there? We’ll answer this question on today's show. “My wife wants a divorce, I do not. She wants the four kids and I am supposed to move out. I want reconciliation, she says ‘No chance, ever!’ What do I do?” Respect the boundary even though it seems counterproductive Give her the space she is demanding Let her know you would love a chance to hear what you can do to repair the relationship, but you’ll be patient till she is ready In the meantime Get help Counseling, mentor, discipleship Make changes She needs to see and experience the change...not hear about it Let your actions do the talking for you Listen to our series A Hero’s Guide to Winning Back Your Wife https://www.smalleyinstitute.com/blog?tag=hero%27s+guide+to+winning+back+your+wife

Talking to yourself makes a huge impact
00:32:00

Today we discuss the benefits of talking to yourself and how it can positively impact your relationships.

The Church Marriage Strategy
01:01:00
Why we are doing a show like today is beyond me!  Because I know at first, you’re going to be thinking to yourself, “How is this going to help me? I’m not a pastor or a leader at a church.”  Well my listening friends, all that needs to change today.  Because you need to know what an effective church marriage strategy looks like so you can begin harassing your church leadership to implement it.  But it can also help your relationship specifically, if you’re willing to do the same things for your own marriage.
