Where you are is where you must begin (Oola 2 of 3)
In this talk I continue where I left off last week, talking about the Oola story— how it intersects with me, right here / right now, anyway… Oola is in the middle of a global launch. In fact, it’s HAPPENING the day this podcast airs— 7/7/2021. The goal is to positively impact 1 BILLION (yes, with a “B”) over the next 7 years… And, even though Beth + I have bought Into the vision (and invite you to join us), that’s not where it began for me… 🚌 I don’t know about you, but you *may need a reboot, a re-crank… I did. And got one. Things. Have. Never. Looked. Better. (Hard road to get there, but all things work together for the good, right?) Here’s the deal… Where you are isn’t who you are. It’s just the location of where you happen to be. But… … and this is important…. Where you are IS where you must begin. Hop on— we’ve got room for you. Let’s enjoy the ride. ++++++++++++ Read more at https://www.Jenkins.tv/blog/171

You are one of the best investments you’ll ever make (Oola 1 of 3)
Face it, you’re one of the best investments you’ll ever make. We intuitively know this. If you asked ANYONE, “What’s more important, people are things?” They’d answer you quickly— and easily— “People.” If we made it personal and asked, “What’s more important, YOU or your possessions…?” “Me, of course…” It’s a no-brainer. Yet we spend years and even decades training to acquire money so that we can acquire stuff… … stuff that we’ll eventually store and never look at again, sell for a penance of what we bought it for, or just giveaway. Someone said it well, “You spend the first half of your life acquiring things, and then the second half of your life realizing that the most important things aren’t things at all… it’s the people your didn’t prioritize in the pursuit of those possessions…” Since we know that… And since we’ve OWNED that reality… Why not just change it up NOW, instead of waiting until later? Why not— 👉 prioritize people (including you) over possessions? 👉 invest in yourself rather than commodities and clutter that will fade away…?

What we learned from a second shot at parenting (Coaches series, w/ Randy Pardue)
My friend Randy Pardue is back on the podcast, and here’s why… … as I decided to talk to a “family coach,” I knew I wanted to host someone who’s successfully navigated a blended family (that's coming soon), as well as someone who is STILL married— decades later (and happily so)— to the first person with whom they fell in love… Randy + Tammy have been married 42 years, and still date each other like most engaged couples. They truly adore each other, and would rather be with one another than anyone else in the world. And then there’s this… 🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁 As they were facing the “empty nest” years, Tammy discovered she was pregnant!

God isn’t finished writing your story (Coaches series, w/ Lance Gilliland)
In this episode, Lance and I talk about the fact that, as Hebrews 12:2 says, Jesus is the Author and Perfecter of our faith. That is, He is writing our story. Sometimes we get off track, sometimes the chapter doesn't look so good, and sometimes it appears that we're in the middle of nothing but chaos... ... but, all things work out in the end. ... and it all comes together.

I love you & I want you to be free (Coaches series, w/ Ingrid Cook)
The first thing my friend Ingrid showed me as we began talking was her Bible— the one she had when she was 21. Inside, she wrote an inscription, something she believed God told her… “I love you and I want you to be free.” ⭐️ Ingrid was around alcohol her entire life. Casually. She tried it when she was 12— and immediately spit it out. “That’s important,” she says, “because we learn that it’s an acquired taste. We don’t naturally like things which are harmful to our bodies.” (The good news is that if it’s a learned behavior, you can unlearn it or replace it.) Eventually, she acquired the taste and began drinking more… Especially as she got older (it became more of a crutch, as if often does). And as she got remarried (into a fabulous family of extroverts who never meet strangers, always invite everyone Into the home, and constantly pull out more chairs for more people). “It was just the perfect storm,” she says. She found a path forward and quit. And, her husband, who had been her “drinking buddy,” quit with her... + Read more + listen at www.Jenkins.tv/blog/167

Don’t forget the fun (Coaches series, w/ Barbara Kenyon)
Yes, there is a science to fun— and there are steps you can take to set an environment where fun more readily happens… 👇 https://www.Jenkins.tv/blog/166 🚌🚌🚌🚌 Here’s the scoop… My friend Barbara has always been an event planner. Even when she was a kid, she planned parties and hosted everyone— gifting them with an experience that just made things “better.” In college, in fact, she studied event management and even took a specialized (read: adapted for her) course plan towards earning her Master’s. That led her overseas where she planned and hosted events at one of the best venues in the city… But, of course, life happens. And things aren’t always as rosy as they seem. Late in her 20s, Barbara began doing some soul searching. Now at home staring a family, she found herself excited (new blessings) and depleted (new revelations) all at once. Such is life, right? As we often say: Life is beautiful, and life is also hard. When life imploded, a series of life-events moved Barbara back to who she was in the beginning… …. the person bringing happiness + joy to others. But now, she was doing it from a healthy center, from a space of overflow and purpose… 🎉🎉🎉🎉 Listen to the talk at https://www.Jenkins.tv/blog/166 or your fav podcast provider.

Freedom is found when you no longer need to self-protect (Soul Wholeness)
In this talk we discuss the third— and final— soul wound(s) of the Soul Wholeness series, guilt and shame. It’s a nasty tag-team duo that works like this… 🧐 We’re born with a moral compass— an internal rudder of right and wrong. When we violate our personal conscience, soul wounds can occur. Moral Injury, a soul wound akin to PTSD, is often the result. Rather than eliciting a fight or flight response, MI creates feelings of guilt and shame. Here are the main ideas to listen for— 👉 “Moral Injury” occurs when we violate our code of morality, that is, of right and wrong. The result... is guilt & shame. 👉 The uncommon cure for Moral Injury— for guilt & shame— is mature love. Now, pause right here… … the ODDEST part of this reality is that so often we inflict the people closest to us with the most “immature” versions of love. Those are the people we seek to berate, belittle, and bash… And that leads to the final observation— 👉 In relationships you can choose intimacy or control, as well as transparency or hiding... but not both. True love expels fear with great intensity, creating space where people own who they are and move forward to who they’re designed to be. The all-too-uncommon cure for guilt & shame is receiving forgiveness— unconditional love— from someone the wounded person believes has the moral authority to grant that forgiveness. 💙💙💙💙 Listen in… Putting this into practice has the potential to revolutionize… well… everything.

To change the fruits, change the roots (Soul Wholeness)
In this talk we continue the Soul Wholeness series… … and discuss the topic of soul ties. Here’s why: Issues arise when we attach our hearts, for any reason, to the wrong place. When we do, bad fruit always emerges. When we connect our hearts in the right way to the right things, beauty emerges. 💙💙💙 Here are the main ideas of this convo: 👉 The “fruit” we see in our lives is a result of the unseen “roots.” To grow better fruit you must nurture better roots. 👉 Addiction happens when we attach our hearts— ❌ To the wrong things, or ❌ To the right things for wrong reasons And, note: we can find ourselves “addicted” to many things. In fact, over 2/3 of the people who seek addiction help do not have a chemical dependency. 👉 The cure for bad “roots” = knowing and walking in your true identity. When we get this healthy, good fruit emerges. 💙💙💙 Dealing with soul ties isn’t about legalism; it’s about walking in freedom— so that nothing hinders us from embracing who we’re designed to be.

You can’t drive forward using a rearview mirror (Soul Wholeness)
We’re designed to grow by exploring the world around us. But, we bump into painful experiences as we do. So, we create (often unconscious) rules to protect ourselves from future pain. Some of the rules are functional (and help us), others are dysfunctional (and hinder us). In this talk I reference three rules of human nature, related to soul health, govern how we uniquely approach the world. Then, we’ll go farther. We’ll discuss how these rules can create ruts— both good and bad. * Functional rules = friends = help us (don’t touch a hot stove, fear of heights, walking down dark alley) * Dysfunctional = foes = hinder us (lack of trust in relationships, fear of failure, etc.) In the the end, we eventually get more of what we expect, creating a “flywheel” of momentum. In other words, if we don’t work through the “triggers” we discussed in the previous video we’ll find ourselves constantly living from “soul memory,” something much like muscle memory. How does it fit with soul health? Well, in the same way you can’t drive a car by always looking over your shoulder, you can’t drive through life by staring in the rearview mirror. Gaze back when you need to… But live “ahead,” leaning forward…

You were created to create something only you can create (Coaches series, w/ Brandon Lazarre)
Brandon Lazarre is the founder of Your Purpose Coaching, and serves as a life coach with a unique angle towards helping you discover your specific design… … that design, in turn, launches you into your purpose. 🏹🏹🏹🏹🏹 Brandon uses the analogy of an arrow— and says we’ve all been created, like arrows, differently than other arrows. Some arrows… 🎯 Explode and cause a big “boom,” like Rambo. 🎯 Others are like those with which you hunt deer— they resemble a precise surgical scalpel. 🎯 Still others are more blunt— like practice arrows. But they’re all needed, each of them (and others) fulfilling a specific purpose. His tagline is… ⭐️Everyone is created by God to create something that only they can create.⭐️ Read more + listen at https://www.Jenkins.tv/blog/162

I took a psych eval, because emotional health is as important as physical health
Two of the joys we most crave— freedom from guilt & shame and authentic community— exist in the place which seems scariest, the light. Those who are willing to “go there” discover true freedom comes not in hiding, but in realizing there’s nothing more to cover-up. ++++ Listen in at https://www.Jenkins.tv/blog/160 or your fav podcast provider.

Is it Your Soul or Your Spirit? (Soul Wholeness)
We each have a body, a soul, and a spirit. It’s easy to confuse the soul and the spirit, but distinguishing each from the other is essential to walk in total health... We must recognize there is an “outer person” and an “inner person” to each of us. In some sense, we do. But, most of us don’t realize the Bible also teaches that we are comprised of a body, a soul, and a spirit— and that the soul and the spirit are two different entities. That is, the “inner person” can be subdivided even more. It’s easy to separate the “body” from the “spirit” or the “body” from the “soul.” But delineating the “soul” from the “spirit” sometimes proves a bit more difficult. 1 Corinthians 6:17 tells us, “Whoever is united with the Lord is one with Him in spirit” (NIV). This spirit is the true “inner man” we want to live from. It is the key to pulling the unseen world into the visible world around us. The problem is that the spirit is often hidden beneath or behind the soul. And, whereas the spirit is quiet, steady, and humble, the soul can become aggressive, outraged, and opinionated. Quickly. In other words, the soul is the internal part of us that’s still “in process.” The soul is comprised of the following: The mind, which includes our thoughts The will, which includes our desires The emotions, which includes our feelings Are those not the parts of us that cause the most problems and create the most chaos? In this talk we break it down and begin stepping towards total health… +++ Read more at https://www.Jenkins.tv/blog/soulorspirit

Revelation = Invitation (Redemption #7)
God doesn’t simply reveal truth to you so that you can study it; He reveals Himself to be encountered and experienced. When He shows you another facet of Himself (in this book or anywhere else!), He's inviting you to receive it. And, I guarantee, God is better experienced than merely explained. Moreover, He invites you to receive it— in full— right then, in that moment. There’s no waiting, and He doesn’t give Himself in pieces (see John 3:34). He gives Himself— and His gifts— completely.’ We often think (because we’ve been taught) that we must “step it up” and “believe harder” in order for the Lord to do a great thing in us. I’ve heard some pastors at a well-known church say, “Dig in deeper” and “go after God.” But, the Bible tells us clearly that faith isn’t something we generate— it’s something that comes to us (see Romans 10:17). The gifts we receive by faith come from a faith that is also a gift in and of itself! Galatians tells us we actually live the life we live now by the “faith of the Son of God” (Galatians 2:20). Look at the King James Version. Most other translations miss this one and suggest that it is faith in the Son of God. The KJV rightly denotes that God Himself places the faith there. It is His faith working in us! The gifts we receive by faith come from a faith that is also a gift in and of itself! If the Lord places within you a desire for freedom, it is His invitation for you to receive it. And it is His faith alive in you which makes it happen! ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Listen at https://www.jenkins.tv/blog/invitation or your fav podcast provider

To Achieve “Big,” Go Small (Life Planning #4)
In the final talk in our Life Planning series we discuss time management— and the reality of tradeoffs. 🎳🎳🎳🎳🎳 We’ve got to be honest with ourselves; we can’t do everything. And, a yes to one thing is most often a no to something else (and vice versa— a no now empowers us to say yes later). We shouldn’t see this as restrictive, but as freeing… … so freeing that we actually place things on our calendar. You see, our calendar reflects our stewardship of our most valuable currency, time. In the same way our bank statements reveal what we value, so also do our day planners. 🗓 So, if it’s important, protect it… budget it… steward it… Just like money. Although, here’s reality, time might be an even MORE valuable asset that cold card 💰, because you can always make more money— yet no one has found a way to develop, save, find, or create time… This talk will help you define— and then focus on— the things which matter most, so that you can build a life that truly matters. 🚌🚌🚌🚌🚌🚌 Listen at https://www.jenkins.tv/blog/bigsmall or your fav podcast provider.

The Law of the Harvest (Life Planning #3)
Wherever we focus our time + energy will grow— for good or bad. So, it’s important that we focus on the things we want to grow. In talk #3 we dive deep into the law of the harvest, that is, sowing and reaping. And, we see that it works in every area of life. 🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎 Sowing and reaping is a principle implemented on the 3rd day when the power of seed bearing plants were spoken forth by God (Genesis 1:11). You know the principle: like begets like based on something already inside the first of the “likes.” Somehow, we've just assumed that “seed” only works in biology. However, “seed” is a principle of creation which works in every area of life. This is what Moses meant when he taught “Whatever you put your hand to prospers” (Deuteronomy 15:10). Here’s how it works… ✅ You reap WHAT you sow… So plant the right thing. ✅ You reap it WHERE you sow it… So plant it where you want the seed to grow… ✅ You reap MORE than you sow… So, rest assured— for good or bad— your efforts will be multiplied!. ✅ You reap AFTER you sow… So don’t delay. Start now. The sooner you sow, the sooner you the harvest comes. Plus… 🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁🥁 Though we cannot control the harvest (like a farmer), we can manage the cultivation process. We can faithfully do the work set before us, even the unglamorous and simple… Small actions doing regularly, over time, have incredible results. So, we should never underestimate the power of simply showing up with our best selves and faithful tending to our field. 🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳 🚌🚌🚌🚌🚌🚌 Listen at https://www.jenkins.tv/blog/harvest or your fav podcast provider.

Your Private Soundtrack (Life Planning #2)
In talk #2 of the Life Planning series we discuss the soundtrack which plays in our heads. Who’s got a bad one, sometimes? ✋ And, who needs to change the story they tell themselves? ✋ Yeah— all of us at one point or another… Here’s why… 👉 We’ll live from the story that’s playing there moreso than any other thing. Whereas many of us are quick to “shut up” someone who speaks against us, we need to learn to manage our own negative self-talk as well. Read that again. Slowly. Manage. Your. Own. Negative. Self. Talk. 😬 This doesn’t mean we deny reality or cease being honest with ourselves. Rather, it acknowledges that our thoughts— and our mindset— are important factors in how we live. Many times, we react negatively to our circumstances because they seem mundane. We compare our “normal” with other people’s “highs.” But, when we look at reality, we see that the supernatural most often happens amidst the ordinary. Understanding this frees us to embrace the small blessings of everyday life— and even plan for them. 🚌🚌🚌🚌🚌🚌 Listen at www.Jenkins.tv/blog/soundtrack or your fav podcast provider.
