When Beliefs Cease Serving their Purpose
The Catechism of the Catholic Church says that the purpose of belief is to ascent our thoughts to God. But too often, we choose beliefs that do the very opposite. In this episode, we help you self-diagnose your toxic beliefs and choose and interior life that you are proud to share with the world.

The Power of Belief that Becomes Faith
Consider how Jesus calls us to have Faith. Well, what exactly does that mean on a practical level? Anyone who has accomplished anything of merit has had to step out in Faith, meaning that they choose to believe something that they have not yet seen. In this episode we will be sharing a big example of where we stepped out in Faith, chose to abandon limiting beliefs, and sharing how God showed up with our Faith the size of a mustard seed.

Breaking Bad Habits and How to be Successful
White-knuckling your way to behavior change never leads to lasting transformation. Furthermore, it's neither Biblically nor psychologically sound. For the Catholics that think the only way to change is to "beat themselves up to better," you are going to find this a refreshing lesson on how to streamline transformation by choosing grace and operating within God's original design for growth and transformation.

Why Buffering is a Barrier to Our Relationship With Jesus
Whether it's with food, working out, busyness, alcohol, sleep, or any number of behaviors, most of us have some go-to buffering actions when we are avoiding what we'd call an unpleasant emotion. The trouble with buffering is that we keep doing the destructive behaviors AND we miss out on some incredible opportunities to meet Jesus. There is great freedom in discovering how you buffer. Listen and discover where you might be buffering and what you can do about it.

The Catholic Process of Processing Emotions
Back by popular demand, we're diving deeper into emotions and building on episode 20. In this episode, we get into the "How" of processing emotions. This can seem daunting, but take courage! There is freedom in learning this oft-neglected, yet essential life-skill of processing our emotions. Neuroscience, theology, the Catechism, and molecular biology all converge in this episode to reveal that, indeed, we are fearfully and wonderfully made; and that includes our emotions.

Emotions 101: What most Catholics Don't Know
We can carry a lot of negative thoughts about our emotions. They're too much, not enough, good, bad, painful, etc.. But what if we just felt them? While the stonefaced #stoic life may seem more appealing than the out-of-control #triggered culture, these are two extremes that run contrary to Christian living and the theology of our bodies. In this episode, we are going to address some common misconceptions about emotions, what our Catholic Church teaches about "the passions", and the benefits of actually feeling and processing emotions.

How Different Opinions Can Be A Means of Redemption
This is the third podcast in what's become an unintentional mini-series about working through our thoughts on the recent US Presidential election. There's good news! Despite the growing divisions in our country, what we've discovered is there is an ever-increasing reason to hope for TRUE unity. Not unity based on the other person changing to be in line with what we believe, but all becoming transformed and united by grace. God, the first mover, is moving right now. Are we responding, or waiting for the "other side" to change first?

The Fallout of the Scarcity Mindset
Hands down, the number one struggle of our clients is overcoming the toxicity of a scarcity mindset. In this episode, we share why scarcity mindsets are so toxic, where we've experienced victories, and where we are still struggling. If Jesus came that we may have life, and have it in abundance (John 10:10) then there is no room for scarcity in our thinking.

The philosophy of Stoicism is making a resurgence, and serves as one of the primary pillars of the self-development industry.

Common Lies Against God, and How They Rob us of Joy
The three categories of lies that keep us from God are (1) Lies Against God, (2) Lies Against Ourselves, and (3) Lies Against our Life's Mission. Metanoia and living a foretaste of heaven in this life entails purging our interior lives of these destructive mindsets and allowing God's grace to renew our minds. In this episode, we're diving into the first of these categories, Lies Against God, so that we can reflect on our own hearts and identify the lies keeping us from intimacy with the Father.
