All of us have insatiable desires that can only be satisfied in communion with our heavenly Father. The desire to be delighted in, for wonder, to behold glory, and to be someone great are driving forces within each of us. The desire to be fully know and fully loved, to be passionate, and to live a life of significance resound within each of us at the foundation of who we are. God created these desires knowing that they can only be fully satisfied in him—that they would be avenues to deeper relationship with him. As we look at each of these desires individually, I pray your heart would find its fulfillment in the loving nearness of your heavenly Father. The main concept for this week is derived from The Seven Longings of the Human Heart by Mike Bickle and Deborah Hiebert.   Our Scripture for today comes from Isaiah 62:5, and today's worship is Mistakes by Influence Music. -- Thanks for listening to the First15 Podcast. My name is Ryn, and I'm a part of the First15 Team.  If you haven't heard, we just launched a brand new First15 app, available now in your app store! One of the new features that you can enjoy when you download the app is our Guided Prayers. We've created unique guided prayers that are created specifically to help you connect with God in prayer wherever you are.    Today, we're sharing a preview of a Guided Prayer I wrote titled, “Of Repentance.” What a gift it is that our God calls Himself our Father and invites us to bring all the wrongs that we've done and lay them down so that they no longer hinder us from the life He calls us to live. Taking inventory of our hearts in God's presence is one way to experience deeper intimacy and freedom with Him. I pray this guided prayer helps you to do that today, friend. And I pray it serves as a template for your own prayers of repentance so that you can walk in the fullness of the life God has for you to live, free of the weights and chains that keep us bound.

In the earth today we see a great struggle for POWER. We hear the rich and powerful talk about the great reset leading the blind into position to worship the Antichrist. Everybody wants to have not just power but in the words of Tim the tool man: "MORE POWER"! We must have prayer with praise to have God's POWER! Your prayer level with PRAISE determines your POWER level! Let's look at the absolute truth this morning and see God and Jesus then His church (in that order) is the source of ALL POWER:*Text: Matthew 6:13 And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.*Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.Then the Lord gave His POWER - AUTHORITY to us that go in faith and praise:*Luke 10:17-19 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. [18] And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. [19] Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.*Psalms 148:14 He also exalteth the horn of his people, The praise of all his saints; Even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise ye the LORD.Note: To raise a horn signifies strength, so we can see PRIASE from us to the Lord brings Power from the Lord to us. See: *Psalms 18:1-3 I will love thee, O LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: So shall I be saved from mine enemies.*Psalms 75:4-10 I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: And to the wicked, Lift not up the horn: Lift not up your horn on high: Speak not with a stiff neck. For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, Nor from the south. But God is the judge: He putteth down one, and setteth up another. For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup, and the wine is red; It is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same: But the dregs thereof, All the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them. But I will declare for ever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob. All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; But the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.*Psalms 89:15-18 Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: They shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance. In thy name shall they rejoice all the day: And in thy righteousness shall they be exalted. For thou art the glory of their strength: And in thy favour our horn shall be exalted. For the LORD is our defence; And the Holy One of Israel is our King.Close with: *Hebrews 10:13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.*Revelation 19:1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:Closing Illustration:One morning Marion Gilbert opened her door and was surprised to see a small dog she had never seen before with her paper in its mouth. Delighted with his “delivery service,” she gave him some treats. The next morning she was horrified to see the same dog sitting in front of her door, wagging his tail, surrounded by eight newspapers. She spent the rest of that morning returning the papers to their owners.

Transcript: CHRIS NEWBOLD: Good afternoon, well-being friends. Welcome to the Path To Well-Being In Law, an initiative of the Institute For Well-Being In Law. I'm your cohost, Chris Newbold, executive vice president of ALPS Malpractice Insurance. Most of our listeners know why we're here. Our goal is to introduce you to thought leaders doing meaningful work in the well-being space within the legal profession. And in the process, we're working to build and nurture a national network of well-being advocates intent on creating a culture shift within the profession. Let me be the first to introduce my co-host, Bree Buchanan. Bree, how are you? BREE BUCHANAN: I'm doing great, Chris, thank you. I am so excited, you know, about this episode because we have just increased our staff at IWIL. I'll let you finish, but I'm just excited. CHRIS: Well, I was going to say that there's a couple notable things about this, right? Bree, you and I have been at this for least going well beyond five years now, but a couple things that I think are really unique about this particular podcast, first of all, our 25th podcast. I'm totally excited about just the incredible people that we have met on this journey. It's a reflection point, so to speak. I just think it's been a great ride for us as we've introduced people from around the country and welcome in new listeners to the podcast. BREE: Absolutely, absolutely. Yeah, it's been a lot of fun. CHRIS: It has. And then I think the big point and I think maybe a little bit of historical perspective is good to share with the listeners today that obviously the Institute for Well-being in Law started now just over 18 months ago. Really the intent was as a natural outgrowth of the National Task Force on Well-Being in Law was that we wanted to look toward a greater level of sustainability for the movement. Bree and I and many other leaders in the movement got together and we ultimately decided that the creation of the institute as a national think tank to be able to work and lead efforts on a national basis was the move. CHRIS: A lot of that was with the intent of being able to hire a full-time professional staff that could work on this issue, not just for the short-term, but for the long-term. Again, without further ado, we are super excited about today's guest, which is our friend Jennifer DiSanza, who is the first executive director of the Institute for Well-Being in Law. I know that we are really excited to introduce her to our listeners, talk about the vision, talk about where the organization's going, talk about her own personal journey as it relates to well-being. CHRIS: Bree, why don't I kick it to you for an introduction of somebody who I think will be a pivotal leader, spokesperson. I know she's thoughtful. Again, we're just super excited to have Jennifer on board. BREE: I'm going to let Jennifer talk about her background, but I'm going to talk about as way of introduction how we got her to us. Like you said, there was this whole plan of how we were performing IWIL and then be able to fundraise and then be able to hire staff, and Jennifer's the first one of that. We went out and did a national search, really cast the net wide and far. We had over 80 applications to the position. It took us a good number of months to go through all of those, many interviews. Ultimately, I'd say at least it was a six month search process, we found our Jennifer DiSanza. Jennifer, we're finally going to let you talk now. JENNIFER DISANZA: I have to say, after that introduction, I feel like an athlete, like I should have had play on music or I should have some theme music, because that was quite the introduction. Thank you, both. BREE: It was really a buildup. What I was thinking is that in the old radio shows that they had the button you could hit with the applause. All that too. JENNIFER: I heard it all in my head, Bree, so it was good. But no, I appreciate both of you so much. It was a long process, but one of the things that attracted me to this, and I've told this story, so those people who know me who are listening know this story, is that I was really looking for an opportunity to be entrepreneurial. But I didn't necessarily want to go out on my own. For those people who can work for themselves, that's great. When this position was posted, I had been following IWIL because my background is in legal education and nonprofit work. I'd been following the organization and just wonderful things that I knew about it. JENNIFER: I had friends on the advisory board involved in different ways. I really believed in the mission. I have never felt so strongly about something as I did when I saw IWIL was hiring an executive director. What brought it home for me is so many people sent it to me because they knew what I wanted to do. It was a confluence of events, I feel. I am so grateful to the search committee, to the board, because I really feel like I'm doing my life's work here at IWIL. BREE: Wonderful. Wonderful. Well, Jennifer, we're going to start you off the way we have started off all of our guests, which is to ask you about what are the experiences in your life that drive your passion for well-being in the legal profession and clearly you have a passion? Tell us about that. JENNIFER: Again, it really comes from my background and experiences. A lot of times you go through your career and you're doing things that you're well-positioned for, that you're well-skilled for, but not necessarily something that drives you past just an everyday job. From a personal standpoint, it really came to me when I went to law school oh so many years ago. Actually, not to date myself, this is our 20th anniversary from graduating. It's been 20 years since I was in law school. But from a personal standpoint, even before that, I struggled with depression and anxiety throughout my life, but law school was the point where it was at the most difficult. JENNIFER: I faced my most difficult challenges. I chose to go to school part-time while working full-time and getting my master's degree. There were a lot of different layers on that, but I really didn't have the resources. I actually didn't even have the language at that time. I was very much of the standpoint, "I got to get through it, I got to get through it," without really thinking about what toll it was taking on me mentally and on my health just in general. Well, I didn't realize the context. I was a first gen student. I never had met anyone that went to law school. I really thought it was going to be like graduate school. JENNIFER: I'd go a couple nights a week. I'd do my homework on the weekends. After being in law school education for almost 20 years, I realize that's an impossible thought. I incorrectly assumed that. It's no secret to those people who know me that I really did not enjoy my law school experience. CHRIS: It's so interesting when you go back and you talk to folks who have went through that experience. Some love it, some it was a terrible experience. That forms a lot of how you think about coming to the law and making some decisions about, "Boy, did I make the right decision here?" Jennifer, I think one of the things that's interesting I know as on the hiring committee that we thought was really pertinent was your career in legal education. Can you tell us a little bit more about your professional journey after graduating from law school that you think has prepared you for taking the leadership baton here and running with it? JENNIFER: Sure. I think most people are like, "Well, if you hated law school so much or didn't enjoy the experience, why did you stay there for an additional 20 years?" But the reality is that I was lucky enough to have someone at my law school who I could go talk to, and it made my experience better and I realized that I could continue doing that. I could be that person for other people. I had been in human resources, in manufacturing and well-being at that time, it was the late '90s, early 2000s, I had safety as part of my human resources responsibility and it was really about physical safety. There was no holistic approach to employee well-being. JENNIFER: But I took what I learned as an HR manager to law school student affairs. I worked at three different ABA-Approved schools. You get students. They come in as you find them, basically. Some of them have preexisting issues, whether it's mental health or substance use, whatever it is. But I knew once they got to law school, whatever it was either started in law school or became much more exasperated while they were in law school. Really over the years of working in legal education, I tried to focus on ways to make the experience better. JENNIFER: The majority of my time during those almost 20 years was counseling students or developing programs to support students in finding out better ways to handle their stress or their anxiety, providing accommodations for students. But I also think one of the things that's sort of a catch 22 in the legal education world is that we're preparing people to have resilience. I was just having this conversation with a law firm well-being person last week. Resilience in itself says there's something you have to be resilient about. There's going to be something difficult in this process. I'm not saying law is easy or should be easy, but we're creating this expectation that they're already going to find difficulty in it. JENNIFER: Well, we had to, in the law school environment, create these programs to deal with life after law school. The reason I love IWIL is we want to fix those issues. We want to look at it and say, "What's causing the burnout? What's causing the turnover so we can make it better?" Even with my last position for the last three years, I was working in financial wellness issues with law students, it's also better to understand the financial pressure students went in, why they went into maybe big law or different world, different jobs. JENNIFER: They went to law school and they were willing to sacrifice their health because they wanted to make a lot of money or because they were hoping for public service loan forgiveness. It really is this confluence of events, like I said, to bring me here now. BREE: Jennifer, I think one of the things that was so attractive for me with you, many things, but also this law school background because we really are there for the groups of law students, judges, and lawyers. And because law students, of course, it's corny, but they are the future of the profession and we know that the youngest lawyers suffer the greatest level of behavioral health problems, it just seemed like a really great way for us to ensure that we're focusing on this critical group. Listen, I've got another question for you just about how you're kind of doing, what's going on now. BREE: I'll date this episode. We're in August. You've been with us for two months now. You've been through a strategic planning session that we had in Chicago with a board a couple of weeks ago. Talk to us now about what are your priorities for IWIL over the next couple of years, which, to be fair, is not just your priorities, it's the board's too, but talk a little bit about that. JENNIFER: The strategic planning session was really eye-opening for me, not because there was a lot of new information, but just having this group of well-being advocates in the room committed to improving the profession. It was inspiring actually. One of the things, probably the most important thing that we focused on during that strategic planning is really focusing on where we can have the most impact. It's nothing new, but we helped articulate it. We're already doing education and awareness. JENNIFER: We have wonderful programming through our biennial conference and our Well-Being Week in Law. We are getting started with a research agenda that's very exciting. And our policy work. We have wonderful initiatives coming up in our policy work and our technical assistance. We work with state task force, getting them up and running, supporting them, looking at opportunities to comment on policy change, that's really one of my priorities, and making sure we are involved in every conversation that impacts well-being in the legal profession. We need to be the thought leaders in this. I want to see those ongoing research projects. JENNIFER: I want to see those comments. I want to see us out in front of everything and being the thought leader in that. I also want to be the gathering space for well-being advocates. I want them to come to us for those questions on how we can support them. CHRIS: That was a great day for us, right? Because I think for the listener's perspective, a lot of us... Obviously IWIL was formed during the pandemic, right? While we probably have spent hundreds of hours together on Zoom calls, the ability to be physically together and meet people that you feel like you know, but you never know people until you're physically with them, right? It just was a fantastic experience to bond with people in a physical setting. Again, Jennifer, I'll just kind of come back to the notion of, I think it's fair to say that going into that retreat, your vision of where you thought the movement was heading was probably a little bit blurry. CHRIS: Coming out of that session, do you feel better about what that outlook looks like relative to where IWIL and other constituencies will be able to put their time, talent, bandwidth, and resources to advance the movement and to advance the culture shift in a more accelerated way? JENNIFER: Absolutely. As I have said over and over again, those first couple months, I really felt like I was drinking through a fire hose. And that's typical of any new job. You're getting up to speed and there's so many things. But I really feel good about where we landed because one of the most common things I hear is, "What are you doing, or what are you going to support?" They want deliverables and they want action items. I feel like defining those pillars as we did and coming up with action items is something that is important. JENNIFER: It also helps to hold us accountable in what we dom and that is really important. We have sustaining donors that we need to be accountable. We have the general public. We have our volunteers. We need to be held accountable, and I feel like we can do that. CHRIS: Jennifer, one of the things that I think is just really interesting about your role is in some respects, our "business model" is premised on the notion of effective volunteer management. Obviously, I mean, one of the things that I think has been one of the great accomplishments of IWIL thus far in its kind of short history has been the manner in which we've offered an on ramp to people interested in this issue to become more involved. CHRIS: Whether it's through a committee structure, whether it's through service on a state task force and then connecting with IWIL through that, whether it's through participation in the annual conference or Well-Being Week in Law, we have created an opportunity for people to come together. I just would be curious on your opinion as to how has it been for you to meet them, that volunteer base, and how important is that group obviously to what we're trying to do relative to our mission? JENNIFER: Well, we do not exist without our volunteers. I mean, it's as plain as simple. I am one person, right? I am one paid staff member. But my listening tour in these first few months has been the best part of this job, because I've become connected to so many of these well-being advocates that are out there. Not only they have their primary professional career, that they have committed their time and talent to moving this shift forward. I'm just amazed by all the time and thoughtful comments and the way they have embraced me, I mean, it's just been phenomenal. JENNIFER: I'm so grateful to them. I would also like to thank those of you, those volunteers out there, who have been very transparent with me and saying they love being a part of IWIL, but they need more focus, which is one of the reasons why we needed a strategic plan. It really helped inform that. BREE: I think one of the things that seems so unique, you look at other think tanks, a couple of people had an idea that they want to dig into and they form a think tank and go forward. We did this, but we also opened up the doors to bring everybody we could along. Just so people know, between the state task forces that we work with regularly and the committees, we have over 200 volunteers that are working with IWIL monthly. It's a very large, very active volunteer base. BREE: Jennifer, we're going to go ahead and take a break at this point in time to hear from one of our sponsors, and then we'll be back and continue our podcast. We'll talk a little bit about DEI, diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging with Jennifer and how that fits into the whole well-being puzzle. — Advertisement: You expect most things to be easily available online. So why should your malpractice insurance be any different? Your job as an attorney is already hard enough. You deserve an application that's easy. With ALPS, you can apply, view rates, and accept your policy 100% online and all in about 20 minutes. Get back to your practice faster and add valuable time back to your day. Want to talk to a real person? Call, chat, email. ALPS is here for you. — BREE: Welcome back, everybody, and we have the most special guest today, our new executive director, Jennifer DiSanza. Jennifer, tell us about... The first thing that the IWIL board did was pass a resolution, a statement, a policy around diversity, equity, and inclusion and how imperative it is to be looking at those issues alongside contemporaneously with the work that we're doing on well-being, because you can't really do one without the other. BREE: Could you talk a little bit about your views on that? I know that you've heard a lot of discussion about this at the board level. What are you thinking about the future of where we meld, raise awareness, et cetera, these two things of DEI belonging and well-being? JENNIFER: I think most importantly that this has been something that was articulated very early to me in the interview process. I have seen it play out throughout my time here. It's great that we're including diverse points of view and supporting them, but you hit the nail on the head when you talked about belonging, right? There's enough room at the table for everyone. We need to make sure that we are not only including people, but we have a place where there's psychological safety. We have a place that people feel comfortable and they feel belonging, because we know that's key to well-being, right? We know that belonging is important. JENNIFER: That is on the premise of everything we do. We know that DEI and B has come to the forefront lately, but there was definitely a struggle to get there. But we have a unique opportunity as we build this movement and create it to really create it as a foundational premise of every single thing that IWIL does, that we have an eye to ensuring this inclusivity and this belonging. Because without it, we're not serving all our stakeholders, we're not serving the profession, and we're not holding to the policy that we stated we would do. We have to live it. BREE: Right. Well said. So well said. I accept that I am privileged white woman, cisgendered lawyer, and I have to be continuously vigilant about these issues. It doesn't just happen without really paying consistent close attention to it. I'm just thrilled that you are here to help us in that endeavor. I have no doubt that you will keep us on that path. JENNIFER: Thank you. I am excited about the opportunity, but I also am glad that we have such a wide variety of volunteers who can keep us accountable on this point too. CHRIS: The reality is, if you've met one lawyer, you've met one lawyer, right? We all come from perspectives that are unique, different, all across the spectrum. Again, this notion of how people struggle for inclusivity and belonging in our profession is something that just has to be at the forefront of everything that we do. I was proud as part of our strategic planning process that we continue to, again, ensure that we're looking through the right lens in our discussions. We always are striving to be a little bit better than we were previously, because sometimes even the most well-intentioned folks can sometimes have a little bit of blind spots here and there, right? JENNIFER: Absolutely. I agree. CHRIS: Jennifer, one of your first achievements was a recently announced partnership and establishment with Thomson Reuters. Can you tell our listeners about what that entailed and how that came about? JENNIFER: Sure. This was actually very exciting for me because I was pleasantly surprised when within the first few weeks of me starting with IWIL, I was able to connect with Thomson Reuters. And more importantly, I was able to reconnect with somebody who I went to law school with. Bree had already established the relationship, but I was able to connect with Ina Camelo, who is leading the space in their global large law firm area. She and I went to law school together. She was year or two behind me, but it was really nice to have this conversation with her about all the wonderful things that Thomson Reuters and IWIL can do together. JENNIFER: This is different than a traditional sponsorship. They have unique areas that we can leverage, whether it's their research, whether it's their practical law area, even marketing and technology. I believe that this partnership might be example moving forward of some of the things that IWIL can do. I feel like the sky's the limit, and it's just harnessing all of that and figuring it out. We've been having continuing meetings with them about some of the work that we can do together. It's very exciting. BREE: Absolutely. Jennifer, what else interests you and excites you and I'll say worries you, of course, because as an executive director, you do a lot of worrying about the future of the well-being in law movement? JENNIFER: Well, obviously being a startup has its pros and cons. As I talked about earlier with diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, we have the opportunity to build something from the ground up and thinking about all the pieces. We have the opportunity to be the preeminent think tank on well-being in the legal profession. We also have to expect there's going to be growing pains. As I talked about drinking out of a fire hose and trying to figure out where we're going to focus our energies, we only have that staff of one. JENNIFER: We do have dedicated board members, advisory board members, and volunteers, but we need to make sure IWIL is sustainable. It's an ongoing process to make sure we're thoughtful as we grow and how we fund initiatives to make sure that we're here for the long-term. It's very exciting from a startup perspective, but we also have to be thoughtful about where we put our energies and time. CHRIS: Jennifer, I think one of the things that's always interesting about the roles that we have as leaders is obviously working to leave the profession a little bit better than we found it. As we think about your tenure and our mission, if we were to look forward a decade, if we were to do a good job around changing attitudes, hearts, and minds, how will the legal profession be different? JENNIFER: In my dream scenario, I want legal employers to set the standard on employee well-being. I want to see organizations highlighted for their employee first approach to the work environment. I really would love to see the profession to be able to put up against some of the other professions that are already doing a lot of work in well-being. I'd love to see those shifts. We're seeing these issues debated right now that were accelerated by the pandemic, remote work, vacation. But the truth is, the issues we're coming regardless. I want to make sure the legal workforce is able to be agile as these things change and generations change as they come up into the workforce. JENNIFER: I want the legal profession to be able to weather any future crises like a pandemic because their employees feel psychological safety. I also want law schools to embed well-being from day one. I don't want it to be an afterthought or trying to fit it in here where you can. This is not a function that can come easily because there are a lot of rules and regulations, but it needs to be inextricably tied to the curriculum culture. Because as we said earlier, law schools are preparing people for the practice of law, but we want that to be a holistic approach. JENNIFER: They're charged with preparing students for practice, but that includes not only doing the job of being a lawyer, but it also helps informing that professional identity and understanding the culture of the legal profession. Wouldn't it be wonderful if that base, that foundational culture of legal profession is now well-being at the forefront? BREE: Absolutely. CHRIS: For sure. Jennifer, as we look to wrap up here, again, I think one of the things that's interesting as we think about the future is, how do we know whether we've made progress or not? Do you have any just early inclinations as to the business world? They talk about key performance indicators. Do you have any early sense of, as we talked about this phrase of engineering a culture shift, any sense of how we might want to be thinking about the measurement of progress? JENNIFER: I think there are some standard measurements of progress, retention, burnout. I know there are law firms out there looking at their employees, there are some larger scale surveys, but we talk about different groups of lawyers leaving the profession or changing or moving areas of practice because of the type of their work they're doing. If we see some of those things change, I think we'll be making progress. JENNIFER: If we see the path to partnership change that allows more flexibility, if we see more alternate work environments, if we see some of those things as a standard, remember, because there are firms that might be able to do it and employers that might have to do it, but then it becomes the standard, I think we will have made a difference. CHRIS: Awesome. Jennifer, again, on behalf of everyone who I know has labored on this particular issue and set us up, I mean, we're so excited that you're joining us as a leader in this journey. Our best days continue to be ahead of us. We know that there are some things going on both in society and generationally that might give us a little bit of tailwind for some of that acceleration of activity. I think one of the most important things about this podcast is how can people reach you? Because you are now in some respects the face and the day-to-day kind of operational execution of some of the mission. I would love it if you would let the listeners know how do they get a hold of you? JENNIFER: As I often say, I have a virtual open door. I've been taking meetings regularly, but you can reach me at my email address, jdisanza@lawyerwellbeing.net. Feel free to reach out. I have plenty of availability on my schedule if you just want to chat with me and talk about your thoughts about the Lawyer Well-Being movement or how you'd like to contribute to the Lawyer Well-Being movement. I look forward to talking to many more people. CHRIS: Again, Jennifer, thank you so much for joining us. I have a hunch that you will be on the podcast again at some point down the road. In fact, you could even probably be a guest host on the podcast in the event that Bree or I have to take a little bit of a leave or a vacation. Again, I know that for us, that labor on this issue is something that we've made as part of our professional opportunity to give back. It's certainly refreshing to be able to have someone of your talent join our team. I know that you've been passionate about this issue from the forefront, but now you get to work on it day-to-day and that's awesome for us and it's awesome for where this movement is ultimately going. BREE: Absolutely. Jennifer, we're so glad to have you. And me on a personal note, I love working with you. Delighted you're onboard. JENNIFER: Thank you both so much. CHRIS: Well, again, thanks everyone for listening in. We'll be back probably within the next couple weeks, two to three weeks, as we look forward into the fall. It's going to be a busy fall for both IWIL and well-being activities. We will see you down the road. Thanks for tuning in.

After labouring for some time Kathleen was brought to theatre to bring her babies into the world by C-section . Parts of her story are quite distressing from complications throughout surgery to their care in those early hours.I also really want to highlight that Kathleen did avail of the services of the hospital to help resolve her birth trauma. Thanks to the decision she made to do this she is in a place to revisit these memories.

We look at this interesting book by gaming developer Adrian Hon, who writes from deep personal experience in the gaming and gamification space. Published on September 8th, see more about this book here. You've Been Played How Corporations, Governments, and Schools Use Gamification, reviewed Adrian Hon is a good choice to have written this book, and also willing to be honest about some games where he invested too much time and energy on playing them. Much like poachers turned game keepers he has seen the impacts of gamification across many many aspects of life, and then also created some positive applications of gamification to modify people's behaviour. At the same time Hon takes us on a very interesting journey to assess if and / or when gamification is a good thing, or not. While many things can be gamified he sagely discusses whether they need to be. He gives a good example of how he does not need the digital versions of books that he is reading to be gamified. Much like when you read a book on a kindle, with the increasing percentage of the book you have completed, this can oftentimes be a negative impact on the pleasure of you reading the book, and also your ability to retain information too. Hon raises important questions, that need go be asked. Especially as it is multinational, uncountable corporations who are gamifying our lives, and it is not for our better interests. Thought provoking examples from Amazon, Barclays and China are all discussed, and it is very much another aspect of the Pandora's box which we have opened, without an awareness of the unintended negative consequences it could well bring us. We would highly recommend reading this book for everyone and anyone to read this book. Delighted to announce my new book critiquing gamification YOU'VE BEEN PLAYED will be out Sept 20th, via @BasicBooks! I've spent the past three years researching how games are being harnessed as instruments of exploitation – and this is the result. Adrian Hon (@adrianhon) January 17, 2022 More about the book From gaming industry insider and Six to Start founder: How gamification has become the twenty-first century's most advanced form of behavioural control Warehouse workers pack boxes while a virtual dragon races across their screen. If they beat their colleagues, they get an award. If not, they can be fired. Uber presents exhausted drivers with challenges to keep them driving. Schools across the world are using surveillance programmes and leaderboards to monitor children's attention and behaviour and feed this back to parents. Games with in-app purchases use achievements to empty your wallet. China scores its citizens so they behave well, and punishes low scores with real-life consequences More about the author Adrian Hon spent the last decade making one of the most popular gamified apps in the world – Zombies, Run! You might expect him to be the first person to spread the gospel of gamification. Yet today, nothing concerns him more. Gamification should be a delight – we all choose to play video games, board games, sports and more in our spare time. But as Hon shows in this book, gamification has spread into many areas of our lives – and it's increasingly being used by employers and governments to monitor and control behaviour. On the surface, gamification seems fun, helpful and engaging. However for many it's becoming a source of anxiety and misery. In You've Been Played game designer Adrian Hon delivers a blistering takedown of how corporations, schools and governments use games and gamification as tools for profit and coercion. These are games that we often have no choice but to play, where losing has heavy penalties. Hon asks why and how games are being used in this way, and what it's doing to us as a society – from the use of games in dating apps and how it's transforming the way we form relationships, to how conspiracy theorists employ gamification techniques to keep us hooked. You've Been Played is a scathing indictment...

The Manor: Next Morning - Don begins another day of erotic play. (ch. 9)By BradentonLarry.   Listen to the Podcast at Steamy Stories. Don awoke gently to the smell of flowers, sunlight through his eyelids, and the wonderful feeling of a warm feminine body pressed against his back. There was an arm over his waist and a delicate hand resting on his hard cock. Life is good, Don thought to himself as he shifted a little on the big bed and opened his eyes a little. Though he had considered the possibility that he might wake up in his own bed, or even some strange new location, he was actually reassured to see the Lady's bedroom awash in morning light.Apparently responding to the fact that he was no longer sleeping soundly, the woman behind him shifted a bit. Her hand took hold of his cock and gave it a little squeeze and then began to stroke it tentatively. Don felt breath on the back of his neck, followed by little kisses there and then on his shoulder. Life is very good.He lay there enjoying the feeling of the hand on him, as well as the contented sense of having had an exceptionally good sleep after a day of more sex than he'd ever had in single 24-hour period. He idly counted his orgasms, came up with four, and thought that was a lot, even though his cock seemed to think otherwise at the moment.Then he felt his partner moving, shifting lower under the sheets. When she nudged him over on his back, he complied with a smile. Soon he felt long hair on his belly and legs, and a warm mouth taking his cock in. She started out slowly, one hand wrapped around the base of his shaft, and moving her mouth up and down, never letting the head slip out. For a while Don simply lay there enjoying the oral sex and looking up at the canopy overhead. When the mouth began to pick up the intensity, and the fist wrapped around him tightened, he started to rock his pelvis, cooperating by fucking the hand and mouth. He could tell he would come before much more of this, and, as nice as this was, Don preferred at the moment to come in the Lady's pussy. Leaning up a little, he tossed the sheet off, and saw that the hair cascading all over him was a beautiful, coppery red.“Deidre?” Don asked in surprise, and with, he thought, remarkable clarity of thought for the circumstances, considering the fact that he had only heard her name once, when the Lady had addressed her after their bath last night.The girl, and Don had a hard time thinking of her as anything else, reached up to move her hair aside and looked up at him. For a moment she just blinked at him with big green eyes and his cock in her mouth. She finally took her mouth off him and said, “Good morning, sir.”Don laughed, “If you're going to have my cock in your mouth, you can call me Don.”“Good morning, Don,” she smiled and then promptly resumed going down on him.While Don loved to watch a beautiful woman sucking his cock – or really any cock for that matter, though he had at least a slight preference for his own – Don felt compelled to ask, “Where's the Lady?”“She left me with instructions to make your waking pleasurable,” Deidre said, and went right back to work.“Well, mission accomplished,” Don grinned, “but you don't have to, ”“I want to, sir,  Don,” Deidre insisted, and demonstrated how much she wanted to by lowering her mouth over the entire length of Don's cock, letting it slip into her throat.“Oh well, in that case, ”When Deidre came up for air, she went back to stroking his shaft with her hand. Taking her mouth off him, she said, “If you would prefer, we can fuck.”“We ‘can'?” Don was having trouble working out the etiquette of the situation. He decided to avoid the issue. “Why don't you move around so I can lick you, Deidre? I've wanted to do that since I saw you last night.”Deidre's eyes sparkled happily at the suggestion, and quickly moved around so her bare pussy was over Don's face and she could go back to sucking his cock.Don paused to admire the pretty pussy in front of him. He gently ran his hand over the puffy lips, bent upward to kiss them, and then ran his tongue over her. Deidre murmured her pleasure and lowered herself closer to his mouth. Don parted her lips with his fingers and ran his tongue up between them. She was quite wet already, and Don realized she probably would have been quite happy to fuck. Still, Don was a man of principles, one of which was to make sure whoever he was with had at least as many orgasms as he did and one of the best ways to accomplish this was with his tongue. Plus, Don knew that concentrating on making Deidre come would keep him from coming, which he could do anytime.Don began to tongue Deidre's clit. He reached up to hold on to her hips and adjusted her position a little, so that he could lay his head back on his pillow and still lick her effectively. Soon Deidre's sweet nectar was flowing down over his face and she was rocking herself a little, as he lapped steadily at her clit. The tip of his nose rubbed between her lips and probed the mouth of her pussy while he licked. Though she never let up on his cock, it wasn't long before she came in a gasping, shaking orgasm. She moaned around his cock and whimpered a little.She took her mouth off him, but continued to work her hand up and down on his shaft, and looked back to ask, “May we fuck now, sir,  I mean, Don?”“Of course,” Don laughed.She immediately twisted around with enthusiastic fluidity. Suddenly her red mane was hanging all around Don's head, and Deidre's adorable face was right over his. She was smiling at him while her hand reached down to take hold of his cock and get it into position. She leaned down to kiss him as she sank back and down on his sex organ, swallowing him up in one motion. Don's tongue slipped into her mouth, and he took hold of her narrow waist. They kept kissing as she moved against his body. Don felt his cock being stroked and pulled by the strong, silky smooth walls of her pussy.Deidre broke their kiss and looked down at him from no more than six inches and said, “Please come inside me, Don.”Don looked up at her and pushed her down on his cock, feeling the cum boiling up in his balls.“Yes,” she nodded, still smiling sweetly, but with an intense glimmer in her eyes.Don's body shook and he felt his cum shooting up through his cock into the beautiful pussy of this radiant girl.“Um, yes,” Deidre smiled with her eyes closed. “I like that.”“Wow!” Don breathed.Deidre grinned down at him, kissed him quickly on the lips and said, “Thank you!” Then she was up off him and climbing off the bed.“So, um,” Don struggled to collect his wits. “Are you the Lady's maid? Lady in waiting?”“I am her acolyte,” Deidre answered. She had found her white robe, and was putting it on, which Don thought was a damn shame.“Her acolyte?”“Yes,” Deidre said. She was shaking out her long red hair. “I serve her however I may, and learn from her.”Don sat up in the bed. “Will you become the Lady someday?”Deidre considered this before saying, “I suppose I might.”“But aren't you in training for that?”“Training for that? To become the Lady of the Manor?”“Yes,” Don watched the changing expressions on her face.“No,” she answered. “I serve her because it pleases me to do so, and I learn from her so that I may please others.” Then, as an afterthought, she added, “Which pleases me as well.”Don smiled at her, “That all sounds very reasonable.”“I am to take you back to the ballroom,” Deidre said, “unless you would like to play some more.”“I would love to play a lot more,” Don grinned, “but I should probably get back. Besides, doesn't the Lady need you?”While Don crawled to the edge of the bed, Deidre said, “She wanted me to attend you, Don, and if she needed me she would send for me.”“I see,” Don nodded. “Do you know where my clothes went?”“They have been collected for the laundry.”“Ah, well, that's fine.”“You may get more from the wardrobe anytime,” Deidre said as she led him toward the door.“That's good to know. So, where did the Lady go exactly?” Don asked. He had seen enough vampire movies and television shows to be wary of hosts that entertain you through the night but are nowhere to be seen in the morning.“She spends time in the garden, goes swimming, and then makes rounds of the Manor with the Lord.”“Swimming?”“In the pool,” Deidre smiled at him.“Of course,” Don said, “I should have guessed there'd be a pool.”“There are three pools that I know of.”“Naturally,” Don chuckled. “So, this garden – I suppose you could take me there?”“Well, I am supposed to take you back to the ballroom,” she said with the hint of a frown on her brow.“But after that, when my friend gets there, could you take us to the garden?”Deidre did frown at this suggestion. “I really should return to my Lady's chambers. In case she needs me.”“I understand,” Don said, “but what about this? It can't take too long to get to the garden, can it?”“Well, probably not.”“Probably not?”Deidre shrugged adorably.Don decided to soldier on with, “Well, say I had slept longer, or we had taken longer to play, ”“You did take longer than I expected,” she pointed out.Don smiled, “OK, so even longer, wouldn't you then be returning to the Lady's chambers even later than you will now?”Deidre considered this for a moment, and said, “I suppose so, yes.”“So, if it doesn't take long to take us to the garden, it would not be unreasonable for the Lady to think you would be busy for so long.”“You have a point, Don. Very well, if your friend is waiting for you in the ballroom, I will take you to the garden.”“Thank you, Deidre the beautiful and fair,” Don bowed. This made Deidre giggle a little, and Don thought he could develop quite an infatuation for this lovely young woman.All these negotiations were in vain, though, for in the next minute when they came into the ballroom Tascha was nowhere to be seen. Don couldn't see her at the table opposite the doors, or in the alcoves to either side, though there were a number of people still sleeping and otherwise quietly engaged.Don shrugged, and Deidre kissed him again, almost chastely considering their earlier activities, and left him to wait.Don watched as a small troupe of butlers and maids (the latter in French maid outfits, of course) moved systematically through the ballroom, collecting stray bits of clothing, apparently for laundering. Another contingent turned up to clean, sweeping and wiping efficiently and almost mechanically. He saw some butlers heading toward the food tables by the doors, and moved quickly to get there first.“Hold on a moment, guys,” he said as he grabbed an apple, an orange, a couple of bananas and a bunch of grapes. He cradled all of these in his arms and also managed to carry two full glasses of the delicious water over to the big table where he was to wait for Tascha, which had already been cleared of fruit. Setting aside the orange, a banana, the grapes and one of the glasses of water for Tascha, Don ate the other banana, and drank some of his water. Like the night before, he felt strangely invigorated by the water and satisfied by the fruit. Looking around, the only trash bin he could see was back by the doors, so he took his apple and the banana peel and headed over to it. Once the peel was disposed of, he bit into the apple and started to stroll back across the dance floor.He wasn't surprised that the fruit was crisp and juicy, as well as the most delicious apple he'd ever had. Chewing it, he wandered over to the alcove to the right of the big table. Relative to the bright sunlight now flooding the dance floor from the windows high above, the alcoves were now, without the benefit of candlelight, relatively darker than the night before. Don took another bite of his apple, and took a step closer to the alcove. There on the big padded platform at the back of the alcove was a group of naked bodies that were obviously not sleeping. Stepping into the darkness, Don thought he could make out parts for at least four different bodies, all female. Don took a step back, checked to make sure none of the cleaners were heading for the food he'd set aside for Tascha and to see if she herself had turned up. Satisfied, and remembering that he had specified the table or the alcoves to either side, Don decided he might as well have a seat and watch the show.He went into the alcove and quietly took a seat on the side bench to the right, thinking he would see if Tascha came in and approached the table. His eyes quickly adjusted to the shadows, and he saw that there were indeed four women there. Closest to him, with her head toward the dance floor and her legs toward the rear of the alcove, was a woman with a beautiful, exceptionally fit back that looked familiar to Don. He actually suspected it was Suzy from the night before. This woman, possibly Suzy, had her right leg up, bent at the knee. Another woman had her face nestled between the first woman's legs, obviously going down on her. Don could only really see the top of this second woman's head. Beyond this, Don could make out legs and arms but couldn't tell clearly what was going on, other than that there were more hands on “possibly Suzy” than just the woman's between her legs. Don thought the whole scene was incredibly erotic, and his stiffening cock agreed.Don took another bite of his dwindling apple, glanced out to see an utter lack of Tascha, and then decided to get a better look of the shenanigans going on in front of him. He got up and moved across the alcove. As he passed, he confirmed that it was indeed Suzy lying on her side. In front of her, kissing her, was the little brunette, Suki, who had lost both her dress and her red bow. Suki and the girl between Suzy's legs formed a kind of triangle. Suki was small enough that she had her right leg, the one on the bed, bent so that it fit in the middle of the triangle. Her left leg was cast over the waist of the woman going down on Suzy. Laying on her left side behind Suki, with her feet toward the dance floor, and her own face between the legs of the woman licking Suzy, was a woman Don was sure was Sandy, also without her ball dress, intently licking at the unidentified woman's pussy.Don stood there watching for several minutes, chewing his apple and idly stroking his cock. He was just about to sit down and get more comfortable when Suki moved away from Suzy's face to kiss and suck at her tits. As a result, Suzy saw Don standing there. She smiled broadly and said, “Hi Don! Jump in!”Don grinned at her, nodded, and set his apple core down on the bench. He was still chewing his last bite as crawled up onto the big section. He leaned down and kissed Sandy's soft butt, and then lay down on his side, basically perpendicular to her, facing the rear of the alcove. He leaned in again and kissed her other ass cheek. She wiggled it in appreciation, and he reached up with his left hand to squeeze and caress it. He parted her cheeks a little and ran his tongue between them. Don then moved his hand up around her right thigh, and gently nudged it upward. Sandy got the idea right away and lifted her leg just as Suzy and the woman Sandy was licking had theirs, bent at the knee. Don scooted in closer and laid his head gently on the inside of Sandy's left thigh, and, without much prelude, slipped his tongue between her pussy lips and into her delicious, moist vagina. He fucked his tongue in and out of her a bit, and then settled in to tonguing her clit steadily. As he did this, he used both hands to caress and squeeze her ass. This went on for several delicious minutes, before Don could hear the sounds of Suzy moaning and repeating, “Fuck yes! Fuck yes!” about a dozen times. This was soon followed by a more muffled set of moanings, which Don thought must be the woman between Sandy's mouth and Suzy's pussy. Don continued to lavish Sandy's clit with his tongue's affection throughout all of the commotion.Soon, though, there was a general shifting of bodies, as the women struggled to find a new, fun configuration. Sandy reached down to gently push him away, but as soon as he moved far enough, she scrambled around so that her leg was out from under his head, and then she pushed him back down so that he was on his back and straddled his face. Delighted with this turn of events, Don got his hands on her ass again and pulled her pussy down to his eager mouth. He went right back to what he'd been doing, licking and sucking at her clit. Looking up, he could see Suki's perfect little breasts as she leaned over to suck on Sandy's tits.Then Don was a little surprised to feel a hand taking hold of his cock, and then less surprised when the hand was followed by a mouth, licking up the shaft, then sucking on the head and then moving up and down on him. He found himself thinking, ‘OK, so there is a heaven,' as he concentrated on Sandy's clit, trying to ignore the wonderful sensations on his cock. It wasn't long before Sandy was pushing down hard on his tongue, and then she was coming – trembling and moaning as she rode his tongue as long as she could stand. Ultimately, though, shaking and giggling a little, she fell off his face to the side. Suki's upside down face was smiling down at him, and by rolling his head back he could see that while Sandy had been over him Suki had been sitting on Suzy's face.Don's attention was drawn from this erotic sight by the fact that his cock was no longer being sucked, and someone was now straddling him. He quickly looked down, and saw none other than Tascha, who had his hard cock in her hand and was rubbing it between her legs, getting it into just the right position. She grinned at him and said, “Good morning, Don.”To be continued.By BradentonLarry for Literotica

In 1970, a car executive visiting Denmark learned that a 1939 Buick Dual Cowl Phaeton was owned by a local resident. Since the car never actually went into production, it was a rare find—a one-of-kind vehicle. Delighted with the discovery, the executive bought the car and spent his time and money to have it restored. Currently, this unique car is featured in a world-renowned collection of classic vehicles. Hidden treasures can take many forms, and in the book of 2 Chronicles we read about another discovery of a lost treasure. Eighteen years into his reign as king of Israel, Josiah began to repair the temple in Jerusalem. During the process, the priest Hilkiah found the “Book of the Law in the temple” (2 Chronicles 34:15). The Book of the Law, the first five books of the Old Testament, had likely been hidden away decades earlier to keep it safe from invading armies. Over time it had been simply forgotten. When King Josiah was told about this discovery, he realized the importance of the find. Josiah called all the people of Israel together and read the entire Book of the Law so they could commit themselves to keep all that was written in it (vv. 30–31). Still important for our lives today, we have the amazing blessing of access to all sixty-six books of the Bible, a treasure of infinite worth.

From early morning trips to the Filipino open markets for her family's catering gigs to Jenika's own courageous journey emigrating to Parma as an #OtherBrownGirl teen coming-of-age after being raised by her grandparents in the Philippines, listen in to hear her inspiring advice to her 14-year-old younger self and younger nieces. “As a child, I was always in the kitchen, whether it was with my grandma or mom. I learned that there are many bridges that are built when it comes to food. Now, I also get to create those bridges and relationships through food.” In 2017, JENIKA GONZALES organized a Lumpia Po pop-up raising $6,000 to help her siblings immigrate to America. Delivering homemade Filipino eggrolls - a.k.a “Lumpia” - made with love along with delightful Bento of Joy boxes for the holidays, Jenika's passion for food, family, and friends inspires us all.

With stories of yogis who spent years practicing alone in isolated mountain caves, it might seem like Buddhism promotes a solitary path. But in reality, Buddha spoke many times of the importance of good friends. Friends that are a good influence on us are essential to our well-being and spiritual development. Once, Ananda said to the Buddha that good friends are half the Holy Life. Buddha replied, “No, Ananda, having good friends isn't half of the Holy Life. Having good friends is the whole of the Holy Life.”    Buddha also said, “it is better to go alone” than to have friends who negatively influence us. Because we are so easily, almost subconsciously, affected by those we spend a lot of time with, we must choose our companions carefully. In this episode, we look at how vital deep friendships are and the inner qualities of friendship.   In the Sigalaka Sutra, the Buddha named these four types of friend: The helpful friend:   protects you when you are careless looks after your property when you are forgetful is a refuge when you are frightened when some need arises, gives you twice the wealth required   The friend who shares one's happiness and suffering: reveals their secrets to you, but guards your secrets  would not abandon you when you are in trouble  they would even sacrifice their life for your sake   The friend who points out what is good: discourages you from doing evil or harmful things  enjoins you in doing good things informs you what you have not heard  points out the path of love and compassion   The sympathetic friend:  never rejoices in your misfortune rejoices in your good fortune stops those who speak poorly of you  commends those who speak praise of you   Which of these four types of friends best describes you? What qualities of friendship could you improve? In our weekly mindfulness practice, we can engage in purposeful actions to strengthen our friendships and inner qualities.   If you find an intelligent companion,  A fellow traveler  A sage of good conduct,  You should travel together,  Delighted and mindful,  Overcoming all dangers. (328)    If you do not find an intelligent companion,  A fellow traveler  Of good conduct and wise,  Travel alone,  Like a king renouncing a conquered kingdom,  Like the elephant Matanga in the forest. (329)*    There is no companionship with a fool;  It is better to go alone.  Travel alone, at ease, doing no evil  Like the elephant Matanga in the forest.

Just 7 years into her marriage, there were numerous issues rearing their head. Amy would have kept plowing forward, her husband decided he could not. After being devastated by his decision, Amy was initially overwhelmed with anger, hurt, shame, guilt, and fear. She was struggling to understand how their perfect story went so sideways.   Fast forward another 6 years and Amy shares that while the journey was tough, it opened her eyes to the prison of limiting beliefs that she was living in and how coaching helped her tear down the invisible walls that were keeping her living small and in fear. Amy beams as she discusses her great coparenting relationship with her ex, her delightful new relationship and most importantly, the freedom that has come with being her authentic self...and teaching her girls to do the same!   Request a Free Rapid Relief Call at  www.rapidreliefcall.com For more information on Journey Beyond Divorce visit:  www.jbddivorcesupport.com

DUM DUM DUM!!! 100 episodes!! We did it. We reached an utterly abstract threshold together guys and we are DELIGHTED to be here. I'm also delighted to welcome Paul Tremblay back to the show for a neat bit of circularity (as he was the one to kick things off way back in episode 1). Paul's new novel, The Pallbearer's Club came out just at the right time to make him the 100th guest. I'm convinced he planned it that way.It's a tale of weird adolescence, New England folklore, Punk Rock and loneliness. Sounds typically bleak right? Well it is, but it also has jokes, a heartwarming friendship and argumentative notes in the margins – so it's both a homecoming and a departure for Paul.We talk about his early desire to be a musician, his obsessions with misinformation, the art of fictionalising the truth, and the fear that inspires his uniquely uncanny set-pieces.Oh, and we also mention a certain film adaptation that may be in the works.Enjoy!The Pallbearers Club was published on July 5th by William Morrow and Titan BooksOther books discussed in this episode include: The Bus on Thursday (2018), by Shirley BarrettLunar Park (2005), by Bret Easton EllisA Confederacy of Dunces (1980), by John Kennedy TooleHouse of Leaves (2000), by Mark Z.
