Video: Life is beautiful + life is also hard

 

September 2018 I did something I never imagined I would do: I took a psychological evaluation. A full one. The kind with hundreds of questions followed by a sit-down interview with a licensed psychologist.

To say it another way, I voluntarily took one of those tests that cost several hundred...

Podcast: Gold in the Broken Places (Claim Your Freedom #13)

 

I almost titled this talk something like, “What do you actually think restoration looks like?” 

I didn’t, because it seemed a bit punchy for such a soft subject. But, after you read the next few pages, I think you’ll understand that line from a place of...

Podcast: Therapeuo for Emotional Health (Claim Your Freedom #12)

By now, you know my bias: I prop on Scripture and do my best to lean into the Spirit. No problem here if you don’t- we can disagree, still interact with each other, and learn a lot together. 

That said, let me show you something else from the Bible. This will apply to you, too,...

Podcast: The All-Too-Uncommon Cure (Claim Your Freedom #11)

For years I was afraid to talk about some of my struggles- some of the things that had happened to me as well as some of the things I had done. I was certain that I would be written off, rejected, abandoned. 

It’s a longer story than I’ll write here, but as a result of my...

Podcast: More Powerful Than PTSD (Moral Injury) (Claim Your Freedom #10)

 

Throughout this series of talks we’ve addressed soul wounds that are primarily mental (our mindset) or emotional (our feelings). But, there’s another area we haven’t spoken about- namely, spiritual health (our faith). 

In the same way our emotions can be...

Podcast: Five Signs You’re Out of Rhythm (Claim Your Freedom #9)

 

About a decade ago I made the swap from Windows-based computers to Apple. The upside is that all of my devices connect and communicate with one another seamlessly. If I type something into the Notes app on my iPhone, it appears on my laptop. And if I edit it there, the corrections...

Podcast: The Pause is Often Enough (Claim Your Freedom #8)

I wrestled in high school. Though an aggressive sport which pits one man against another in a battle of strength, stamina, and technique, very few accidents and injuries ever occurred during the six years I participated. On the rare instances when they did, wrestling tournaments always stopped....

Podcast: Roots & Fruits, Causes & Symptoms- Addiction (Claim Your Freedom #7)

You might have listened to the previous talk and thought, “Oh. He just inferred we can easily rewrite the script- that if we don’t like the story we’re living, we can just sprinkle in some new characters, change the scenery, add a few power-ups, and then move forward.”

No...

Podcast: The Story We Tell Ourselves is the Reality We Sell Ourselves (Claim Your Freedom #6)

A few talks ago, we discussed perception- and how that perception often becomes our reality if we’re not careful to separate what we think we see from what we actually see (we discussed perception vs. reality at www.Jenkins.tv/blog/perception.). Then we discussed internal rules-...

Podcast: Self-Protective Self (Claim Your Freedom #5)

In January 2019 I wrote Emotional Wholeness Checklist, a book about feelings and the importance of recognizing them in ourselves. The premise is this: all of our feelings- both the ones we typically consider to be “good” and those we often consider to be “bad”- are...
