Each of the 5.6 million Americans with dementia has one or more caregivers struggling to make meaning while watching their loved one's personality vanish. The caregiver is sure to be changed―not only by the myriad tasks and responsibilities, but by the soul-searching questions: Dare, I hope? Who's to blame? What do I do with my anger? Where's God in this? These questions of doubt, guilt, intimacy, depression, and acceptance are ultimately questions of spirit. Joining us today is Jean Denton. Jean is a former Joy's House caregiver, an ordained Episcopal priest and spiritual companion with a background in nursing and public health, and the author of Walking Each Other Home: Spiritual Companionship for Dementia Caregivers.

Hello to you listening in Muscat, Gulf of Oman!Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday and your host, Diane Wyzga.We've seen the movies, we've read the books and maybe like me you wonder: what is it about the very best of them that draws us in? I have an answer: the more vulnerable and open the character, the more relatable the character is to us. It takes such courage to be vulnerable and open that we can't help but draw closer to the heat of the human flame, curious about its nature.      Ironic, isn't it? Decades of training as cold, aloof, unapproachable leaders has rebounded such that leaders are now questing for like-minded souls who see the merit of vulnerability and openness in leadership. “What? You, too? I thought I was the only one.” [C.S. Lewis]  Leaders might take a page from C.S. Lewis: “Friendship arises out of mere Companionship when two or more of the companions discover that they have in common some insight or interest or even taste which the others do not share and which, till that moment, each believed to be his own unique treasure (or burden). The typical expression of opening Friendship would be something like, "What? You too? I thought I was the only one." ... It is when two such persons discover one another, when, whether with immense difficulties and semi-articulate fumblings or with what would seem to us amazing and elliptical speed, they share their vision - it is then that Friendship is born. And instantly they stand together in an immense solitude.” [C.S. Lewis]Story Prompt: When has a leader's honest vulnerability encouraged your own? What happened next? Write that story!Practical Tip: The magic of stories is also in the sharing. If you wish share your story with someone or something.   All that matters is you have a story.You're invited: “Come for the stories - stay for the magic!” Speaking of magic, I hope you'll subscribe, share a nice shout out on your social media or podcast channel of choice, and join us next time!

Welcome to Day 2,001 of  Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me. This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom The Advantages Of Companionship – Daily Wisdom Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 2001 of our Trek. We are transitioning in the structure of Wisdom-Trek to focus on the great wisdom books of the Bible. One habit I have practiced nearly every day for the past 45+ years of my adult life is to read the chapter in the book of Proverbs that corresponds to the day of the month. This single habit has been the catalyst for gaining wisdom and living a life with wisdom. Adopting this habit can do the same for your life. So, beginning October 1st, I will start publishing the reading of the chapter in Proverbs that corresponds to the day of the month. Before that, I am reading through the book of Ecclesiastes. King Solomon, who wrote both Ecclesiastics and Proverbs, was the wisest person to live. He wrote Ecclesiastes late in his life, after trying many other paths to wisdom, and then he was brought back to the realization that God's Wisdom is the only true wisdom. This realization is what drives me to seek out God's wisdom each day. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. So we are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, to seek out discernment and insights, and to boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before. Today I will read Ecclesiastes 4, and I have titled this chapter: The Advantages Of Companionship Again, I observed all the oppression that takes place under the sun. I saw the tears of the oppressed, with no one to comfort them. The oppressors have great power, and their victims are helpless. 2 So I concluded that the dead are better off than the living. 3 But most fortunate of all are those who are not yet born. For they have not seen all the evil that is done under the sun. 4 Then I observed that most people are motivated to success because they envy their neighbors. But this, too, is meaningless—like chasing the wind. 5 “Fools fold their idle hands, leading them to ruin.” 6 And yet, “Better to have one handful with quietness than two handfuls with hard work and chasing the wind.” The Advantages of Companionship 7 I observed yet another example of something meaningless under the sun. 8 This is the case of a man who is all alone, without a child or a brother, yet who works hard to gain as much wealth as he can. But then he asks himself, “Who am I working for? Why am I giving up so much pleasure now?” It is all so meaningless and depressing. 9 Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. 10 If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. 11 Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? 12 A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. The Futility of Political Power 13 It is better to be a poor but wise youth than an old and foolish king who refuses all advice. 14 Such a youth could rise from poverty and succeed. He might even become king, though he has been in prison. 15 But then everyone rushes to the side of yet another youth[https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ecclesiastes%204&version=NLT#fen-NLT-17373a (a)] who replaces him. 16 Endless crowds stand around him,[https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ecclesiastes%204&version=NLT#fen-NLT-17374b (b)] but then another generation grows up and rejects him, too. So it is all meaningless—like chasing the wind. As you ponder this chapter covering The Advantages of Companionship, please encourage your friends and family to join us and come along tomorrow for another day of ‘Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.' Thank you so much for allowing me to be your guide, mentor, and, most importantly, your friend

THE ENEMIES OF INTIMACYMarriage Rescue - Part 4Senior Pastor Keith StewartAugust 21, 2022You were made to crave intimacy. We all have an insatiable desire to be known and loved at the deepest level. At the same time, our understanding of love has been distorted by our upbringing, our culture, and our experiences in relationships. In this weekend's message, we're going to discover what love is all about - the very love God designed for our hearts to crave. Do you have the kind of love that can go the distance? This message is all about how to keep your marriage healthy, happy, and strong.SERIES: Marriage RescueIt's a hugely popular show on the Paramount Network and it's called Bar Rescue. Jon Taffer, who has more than 40 years of experience in the business, offers his no-nonsense straight talk to struggling bar owners to help save their business and put them back on the road to success. What if there was such a person who could help us with our real life and relationships? What if a little no-nonsense straight talk about what it takes to build a healthy relationship could actually save our marriage and gets us back on the road to success? In this new series, Pastor Keith will share out of his 40-year relationship with Brenda the keys to help a couple move from status quo to spectacular – pointing out the stumbling blocks and steppingstones in achieving healthy, mutually-satisfying relationships.DISCUSSION QUESTIONSMost of this message was an amplification of the three love foundations of marriage, looking at it first from an Old Testament perspective, then a New Testament perspective, followed by Sternberg's psychological findings that validate all three as essential qualities in healthy, happy relationships.1.)  Take some time to discuss what you remember about each of the following qualities. What are their defining characteristics? Why are they so essential? What happens when they are absent? What area of loving needs more attention in your life, not just what you would like to experience more of but also where do you tend to be weaker in meeting that need in your mate?PASSION – Eros (Greek) and Dod (Hebrew)INTIMACY – Filia (Greek) and Raya (Hebrew)COMMITMENT - Agape (Greek) and Ahava (Hebrew)2.)  Sternberg's research has found that when one aspect of love is neglected or absent, it leads to imbalanced, unfulfilling, and non-enduring loves. Discuss the following and if you have known examples of this.High passion + high intimacy = Romantic loveHigh passion + high commitment = Foolish loveHigh intimacy + high commitment = Companionship love3.)  God loves us in all three ways. In fact, it's because of Him that we even have the capacity to love others in this way. What would you say to someone who says they struggle with really knowing, understanding, or experiencing the love of God? What practical ways would you suggest to them to have a greater experience of the love of God? How have you come to better know, understand and experience the love of God?https://www.springcreekchurch.org/#realspringcreekchurch #marriagerescue #relationalbaggage #relationships #anger #mad #intimacy #enemiesofintimacy

The Levine family was created around his brother, Jay, and moved forward with the compassion and conviction of Melanie. They reflect on how they purely embraced who Jay was and how they saw a future of companionship and community for him in s2. E6. N16. of the Otherness Podcast titled Faith without knowing. Autism Family Reflections from Mom.It took a while for Todd's mother, Melanie, to join him for a family conversation on the Otherness Podcast. When they recorded this episode, Todd was able to remember how she led the Levine family into the uncharted waters of being truly present with his brother, Jay. Companionship for Jay was the top priority for Melanie, and she shares the experiences and images that fueled her faith and hope. Todd's brother, Jay, has a steady job, his own apartment, and a caring girlfriend. Objectively, one could say that Jay is a success as a man, let alone one with autism. In this conversation between Todd and his mother, Melanie, these successes are not the focal point. The more meaningful creations were the relationships that were fueled by Jay's true desire to connect and set by Melanie's steady faith in his capacity for companionship with individuals and his community. Melanie shares an important family story of when she went to a local hardware store many years ago and met an employee there that reminded her of Jay. He wore a wedding ring and Melanie wondered who his wife was. She returned to the store a few days later and saw this man's wife and was moved by how similar they were to each other as well as to Jay. The image of that couple stayed with her during Jay's arduous yet fulfilling road towards being with someone who truly cared about him. Todd and Melanie also discuss how she went to the many school meetings to help Jay get the resources he needed being cooperative and non-adversarial, even if she was angry about what wasn't being done for him. Todd describes what it was like to be forged in autism as Jay's brother and how there was no real concept of abnormality in the relationship.The Otherness Podcast is exploring and engaging autism through experienced stories with Dr. Todd Peter Levine and is available on most places and sites where you like to listen to podcasts.S2.

This week, Kevin and Niseema talk about ways to recognize and cultivate “Companionship” and “Belonging,” the two themes of the Loneliness Scale questions, (see button below.) Did your parents have companions or feel a sense of belonging in their community or social circle?  If not, you may have a high tolerance for isolation and loneliness yourself. Birth order is also a factor: first-born children are often the parent/caregiver's companions while last-born children are often the loneliest, especially in a large family. Hoarding and addictions can be seen as "companions" too: though in reality, both are very isolating, cutting us off from the sense of belonging we crave. It is a paradox!In the second half of the show Kevin and Niseema go through four steps that can help EASE your loneliness: Extend your boundaries, have Action plan, Select an activity, and Expect the best. By practicing these four simple steps anyone can move from a sense of isolation and loneliness to a place of companionship and a feeling of belonging.-----------------------For more information or support contact hosts Kevin O'Donoghue LMHC or Niseema Dyan Diemer SEP  at: info@thepositivemindcenter.com, or call 212-757-4488. You can sign up for our weekly newsletter at www.tffpp.org.These are challenging times and we hope this episode served to validate and ease your anxiety about what you may be experiencing. Please feel free to also suggest show ideas to the above email. Thank you for listening,Kevin and Niseemawww.tffpp.orghttps://www.kevinlmhc.comwww.niseema.comwww.thepositivemindcenter.comPRODUCTION CREDITSOpening Music : Another Country, Pure Shadowfax, ShadowfaxBreak Music:" Lonely Too Long."
